April Horoscope for Taurus
(April 20th – May 20th)
Change is happening in your career and you feel you’ve lost control. Not true, what you’ve lost is the ability to only do things your way. Make adjustments and things will move forward with ease. Relationships are good with a touch of romantic stardust sprinkled in your eyes. You won’t see what you don’t want to see. Your biggest challenge now is anger. Don’t let it get in the way of your success.
The extremes of a Taurus nature may surprise you. Either they show love and want to make others happy, or they are arrogant and selfish. You know which one you are, although some of you may fall in between the crack and experience life from both extremes. As only the second sign of the zodiac, the soul is still trying to understand itself and yes – there is a desire for power. A Taurus dislikes taking orders from anyone. However, until you’re on your own paying your own bills, you have to learn to compromise. In life, compromise is necessary – it’s one way to learn new things.
The Full Moon on the 30th falls in your 7th house of relationships. With the Moon conjunct Jupiter in Scorpio you may find that your partner, or people in general, are not listening to you. You may feel as if the world is against you – at least for now. That’s not true, but there is selfishness in the air so you’re going to have to do things on your own. You won’t be able to rely on others as in the past. It’s the beginning of real independence. Don’t feel hurt, embrace the process and you’ll come out ahead. When you’re independent you can do things your way and with the Sun in Taurus you will shine. It’s time to get back into the limelight and show others what you can do. You have a lot of talent, but what you need is the discipline to help it manifest.
Aquarius is the sign on your 10th house of goals and career. Your direction needs some adjustments. With Mars in square to Uranus you are angry that you no longer have total control over how you want to do things. It’s time to learn from mistakes and make improvements. The kind of independence you dream about has to be earned. No one ever gets to do things exactly the way they want to, not if they want to succeed. So take a deep breath and learn to compromise what’s not really important. If you don’t learn when and how to adjust then life will break you. If you adjust too much, then you’ll find yourself in a structured environment where you have to get a backbone. Balance is the key to a healthy, happy life. Real intelligence is figuring out how to turn any decision into a win-win; this means everyone is happy not just you. Remind yourself that you’re the creator of your life, so you’re responsible for whatever position you find yourself in – and that’s a good thing. That means what you don’t like you can change. Whatever you do, don’t waste your time complaining or blaming others. Step up to the plate and take charge. When you do things work out.
With Saturn, Pluto and Mars conjoined in your 9th house, you are highly motivated and focused on getting things done. In fact, you could be obsessed. With Saturn in trine to your Sun, things you work on get done and with ease. When things work it’s good to remind yourself how simple life can be when there is order and respect for the people and things around you. Your battle is always between wanting others to love you unconditionally no matter what you do and wanting to be independent and free. Love yourself and you will always see the glass as half full, don’t love yourself and it will appear half empty. How you look at life determines your happiness.
Mercury goes direct on the 15th in Aries and projects begin to move. Since Mercury rules your 2nd house of money, you could collect on past debts or have to pay back what you’ve bowered. Retrogrades try and clear up old issues. With Mercury in your 12th house most of what happens to you now is beyond your control. Your mission this month is to choose the best response available to you and find new ways to make things happen. Even when Mercury goes direct Saturn is there to keep things moving slowly. One way or the other you’re going to have to control your impatient nature.
Relationships and love are always at the top of a Taurean list of what’s important. With the Moon in your 7th house and in trine to Neptune, your idealism is high and so is your romantic nature. You want love that has nothing to do with reality. However, sooner or later reality sets in. So it’s best to find a balance between the two worlds. If you’re in love and in a relationship, then enjoy the effects of Neptune, which have a way of making anything seem better than it is. Even with the Full Moon in your relationship house, you will escape having to face the things that generally annoy you. If you’re not in a relationship then you have a wonderful chance to meet someone. If you do, it will be intense and strong and a bit obsessive. However, obsessive doesn’t seem to bother you now. Remember, you’re not attracted to innocence, in fact, you prefer someone with a naughty side. You like a partner who challenges authority and is not afraid of breaking the rules. That’s okay if it’s not extreme. When you don’t comply to the order of things, that’s when you get into trouble. Learning how to live life your way without breaking the rules is the real challenge.
