Aries (March 20-April 19) — Even the most outgoing of people needs somewhere in the world where they feel at ease, and can fully relax. Keep that in mind this week. You might be feeling exhilarated by all the shifting ground, which is in many ways advantageous. Eventually, however, you’ll want something more stable to emerge, on which you can build trust and reliance, and from which you can venture into unfamiliar worlds, knowing your base remains exactly as you left it. Spend some time inhabiting it in forthcoming days.
Taurus Birthdays 2018:
Your Reading Is Published and Available for Instant Access!
Dear Friend and Reader:
Eric recorded the 2018 Taurus Birthday Reading last weekend. Infused with the earthy, juicy richness of Beltane, your two segments of audio astrology are sure to get your solar year to an ideal start — whether you have your Sun, Moon or rising sign in Taurus.
If someone close to you was born under the sign of the bull, why not treat them to this reading as a gift?
Uranus brought its high-voltage energy to Taurus this week. Taureans like to move at their own pace; the presence of Uranus offers a reminder that when you’re the one to set that pace and instigate change on your own terms, you’re a much happier person.
Eric covers all the important points about this transit, and offers a wealth of insights, strategies and unique perspective to help you go with the flow and keep from getting stuck. You get at least an hour total of astrology (in two segments), plus access to last year’s reading and an extended description of your sign.
Happy birthday, and here’s to the unexpected gifts of Uranus!
Yours & truly,
Taurus (April 19-May 20) — No doubt you know the superstition that if you make a wish over birthday candles or unidentified comet-like objects, or whatever, you should not then communicate said wish to anyone. This possibly has its roots in a magical theory that suggests to verbalize something is to diffuse its power. Whatever the merits of that concept, you might actually be wise to do the opposite this week. Your ruler Venus’ change of sign is lending a certain charm to your words. Simply asking may well carry you far.
Gemini (May 20-June 21) — You’ve made some pretty good decisions recently in terms of taking charge of your life. This week you should begin to feel the benefit in terms of improved resources or self-esteem. That blessing will only be increased if you actively cultivate your sense of trust and value in yourself, your instincts and your motivations. You simply have no reason for insecurity or doubt, and especially not for guilt. The minute you start to feel any of these creeping in, treat them like guests that have outstayed their welcome.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Given that several planets have lately changed signs, you might understandably be wondering what on earth is going to happen next. Fortunately, Venus entering your sign Saturday indicates a moment in which you can draw a line under a certain tense episode. It might seem like everyone has been trying to claim a part of you, or to affix a label to you. It’s a good thing you’re not so easy to categorize. Love, nurture and nourish yourself in all your beautiful variegated colors, and never mind what others say.
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — Don’t let any uncertainty you feel regarding the state of the outside world stop you from being who you are. That especially includes your natural tendency to warmth and generosity — qualities which are needed in abundance. Keep right on leading by example. If you’re concerned that someone might be imposing on you, check in with your intuition before deciding how to act. It’s possible there’s more to the story than you realize. Be prepared to give the benefit of the doubt where you can.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — There is, as you’re no doubt aware, a sense of safety in keeping to the shadows. Potentially you feel that you operate best in the background, or blending in like a chameleon. Yet there comes a point when this no longer works, and it’s necessary to stand out, or stand up, and become fully visible. This week would appear to be that moment for you. The astrology looks to be urging you to count yourself in, and to accept that you have a place in the scheme of things that’s uniquely yours. Time to be seen.
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — Your ruling planet Venus is about to enter your realm of career and ambition. If you’ve recently felt uncertain of your prospects, or not quite prominent in your workplace, now the spotlight appears to shine directly on you. Remember that what was true in the past does not automatically follow in the present and future, especially when you’re not dealing with the same people. Don’t let any doubts from former times get the better of you. You can overcome them pretty easily, and you definitely should.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — In recent days, someone in your life may have questioned or challenged specific beliefs you hold. I appreciate this can feel quite discomfiting, the more so if you felt your position to be rock-solid. However, it would seem to be part of a personal growth process that could reach a turning point in the week ahead. If you follow it through, you’re likely to wind up with a significantly broadened perspective, which can only serve you. Therefore, take courage, and seek the gift of understanding.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) — If you find yourself negotiating this week for something you want, or in a position to request it, remember the difference between assertion and aggression. The latter often springs from desperation or fear. Your charts suggest that you don’t need to feel either, because you have something valuable to offer; probably in the form of a skill of some kind, or unique ideas that you alone seem to produce. Have faith in yourself, and allow this to feed into a confident and friendly demeanor.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) — Your relationships are about to receive a boost of some kind — whether that involves meeting new people, extending intimacy with someone you care about, or similar. Remember that, more often than not, the first step to receiving what you desire is to ask for it. For you, that might also mean coming to terms with the fact that you can do so. Deal methodically with any guilt: it certainly does not serve you, and is pretty unlikely to be grounded in any kind of realism. Be with people who support you in loving yourself.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) —
The entrance of Mars into your sign commences what’s likely to be an extended period of discovering yourself through knowing what you want. This will probably play out in a variety of different ways. This week there is a spotlight on your routines and habits. What would you change up, if you could? This might be as simple as rearranging the layout of your home, or where you spend the most time. Regardless, the important thing to note is to set no limits on your imagination.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — If lately you’ve felt any self-doubt or anxiety about your place in the world, Venus changing signs this Saturday should help you put these notions firmly in their place. All you need to do is maintain a firm faith in the truth of who you are, and let the light of the heavens flow through you and into your creative works without interruption. You have too much to contribute for your gifts to go unseen. Trust your inner compass: it has guided you right until now, and will surely continue to do so.
