Areas of Expansion in 2015 for Taurus: Home, Family, Attachments, Romance, Creativity, Children, Hobbies
Your Taurus 2015 Horoscope points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
Until August 11, 2015, your inner world, family life, domestic activities, and domestic arrangements continue to expand and grow. Relations with family can be especially pleasant and supportive. You might move to a new home, likely a bigger one, or expand real estate holdings. Some of you can get a mortgage or support that allows you to expand your home base. Family itself can expand, or there might be an addition to your home. Some might take on a roommate for example, or bring more friends to their home. Others might pool resources with a partner and move in together. Entertaining in the home can be emphasized, if that is something that makes you happy. Otherwise, you can experience a stronger sense of peace and privacy in your home life.
This period favors renovating, redecorating, buying, and selling your own home or investment property. More spirit and generosity in the family unit can be enjoyed now. You could be especially interested in putting down roots, nesting, and living a more secure life.
Generally speaking, more positive energy is brought to your domestic world, and long-standing problems with family might be put to bed. Do be careful about overextending yourself with home improvements, or larger accommodations that are beyond your means. Your personal life tends to overshadow your professional life or material activities during this cycle. Relationships with family can improve significantly now, although pre-existing problems might be magnified initially.
On a more psychological level, confidence in yourself and feelings of security increase during this period.
Potential negatives: Excessive money spent on home improvement, too much emphasis on the home to the point that other areas of your life suffer, or some unwillingness to expand your horizons. Avoiding or escaping responsibilities is a stronger potential in February and May. In August, clashes between a partner and home life are possible. However, until June, stronger energy is available for enjoying the more positive effects of this transit. For the most part, you are likely to feel emotionally secure and supported during this cycle. This is a time of nest-feathering. It’s also a period of good luck and liberation from past restrictions and difficult circumstances or attitudes that have been holding you back. Bringing buried or private crosses you’ve been burying into the light or out into the open can be healing.
From August 11th onward, your romantic and creative worlds begin to expand and grow. You are learning to express yourself playfully and creatively without apology, and more willing to take some personal risks in order to do so. Romantic opportunities tend to abound during this cycle; or chances to kick back and have fun, express yourself, and pursue hobbies and entertainment. Creatively speaking, you can be filled with ideas and plans for realizing a dream.
While this position is associated with casual dating, because Jupiter rules your intimacy sector, you could be seeking more intensity, passion, and depth in your love life during this period. This influence is with you until September 2016.
Potential negatives: Excessive emphasis on, or attention to, having fun to the detriment of other life departments. This is more likely to occur in September and early November, when you may be glossing over important, practical details and the appeal of gambling or taking other forms of risks can be strong. Young and impressionable Tauruses may be mixing with the “wrong crowd” at this time. Watch also for indiscriminately lending to friends during this period, as well as recreational escapism that goes too far.
However, for the most part, you are likely to feel supported and confident during this approximately year-long cycle. Particularly from October forward, there is strong energy for transforming your creative life, love life, hobbies, and self-expression. There is more depth and power in your creative output, intensity in your romantic world/feelings, and a stronger commitment to improving your life. Your lifeview expands, enriches, and deepens. Your desire to share yourself with others strengthens. Creativity finds a successful channel or outlet, and you are pouring more of your heart and soul into what you create and share.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: Partnerships, Support, Intimacy, Sharing, Finances
Your Taurus 2015 Horoscope, Saturn Profile, points to areas of contraction, restriction, and necessary “slimming down” in order to test for stable foundations. There are always areas of life that require more simplicity. Tests may be part of the picture as you learn that life with only growth and expansion can run away with itself.
From June 14 to September 17, 2015, the areas of your life that require a “back to basics” approach are those ruled by the sector of personal relationships, such as marriages and other committed partnerships, long-term associations, open enemies, negotiations, agreements, and contracts. This is a continuing trend. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the universe is checking that the foundations are strong. Things built on weak foundations may very well crack under the pressure of these tests. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen.
This influence began October 5th, 2012, and is with you for part of this year, from June 14th to September 17th. This is the final haul! It can be felt most strongly earlier or later in the cycle, depending on whether you were born earlier or later in the sign of Taurus.
Tests can continue to come to close, long-term relationships. For those of you who are in committed partnerships, there can be some strains on your bond this year. A partner might feel like a “heavy” in your life, and any feelings of restriction that you feel or have felt in this area of life may seem magnified in your mind now. A partner might also seem cautious, distant, critical, or defensive. You need to open your mind to the possibility that a partner is providing you with important life lessons – about traditions, simplifying your life, and responsibilities. While this might seem difficult now, you might later look back on this time of your life and think, “Oh yeah – now I see it”. So do not automatically discard what he/she has to say. Take your time on this one. If, however, a partner is challenging you to the point of breaking (and this is more likely to occur, if at all, towards the end of the year), then steps need to be taken to improve the situation.
For those of you who are not in committed relationships, it is quite unlikely that you’ll enter a new long-term partnership or commitment rashly. Some of you might begin one, but will do so quite cautiously and carefully. Some of you might be attracted to older or more mature and established people as partnership “material”.
Those of you who are single might nevertheless feel some angst or pressure. This lack in your life might suddenly seem magnified, like a gaping hole in your life. You might lose hope, temporarily, that you’ll ever find a strong, committed partnership. Feelings of loneliness may run deep this year, but the universe is sending you a message through this experience regardless. It is awakening you to a need. In time, you will find ways to satisfy this need.
Some of you could be making a commitment this year. A relationship can encounter some tests or complications, but if it’s strong, it will weather the storm and you could decide to take it to another level. If not, remember that relationships “lost” during a Saturn transit to your partnership sector generally are not good for you in the long run. Some of you could be making a commitment to someone whose background or culture is very different than your own.
The more challenging potentials of this transit may be realized in June and early August especially, when Saturn is challenged by Pluto and Jupiter respectively. For some, there could be difficulties with in-laws, or attention to family could challenge a partnership.
With Saturn opposing your Sun (those born in the final days of Taurus), you might feel that you’re not often getting what you want. Others may be restricting you, or at least that’s how you might perceive things, and you may not be at your best in terms of overall energy. Some areas of your life may seem to be breaking down before they get better. There can also be bone and teeth problems – something that often happens with hard Saturn transits. Tidy and organize your life as much as possible in order to minimize the challenges.
Opposition from others can take many forms, but the lesson here is to strike a balance. Yes, there are times when you long for a life with few restrictions and responsibilities. However, some responsibilities and restrictions are necessary. Seek ways to balance your life in terms of pleasures and responsibilities. Don’t turn your back on commitments and traditions entirely. Learn from the challenges you face.
Until June 14th, and then from September 17th onward, the areas of your life that require a “back to basics” approach are intimacy, sharing, and shared finances, or money and property that comes from a source other than your own personal income. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the universe is checking that the foundations are strong. Things built on weak foundations may very well crack under the pressure of these tests. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen.
This influence is new for you, having only begun December 23rd, 2014, and will be with you until December, 2017. It can be felt most strongly earlier or later in the cycle, depending on whether you were born earlier or later in the sign of Taurus. This year, those born in the first four days of Taurus are most directly affected.
Tests can come to your financial and intimate worlds during this cycle. You may be dealing with fears of surrendering yourself, emotionally or financially, to others. Support from others may not be as forthcoming as it has been in the past. For example, a partner’s income may be reduced, or another form of financial support may be taken away or decreased during this period. This requires you to assume more independence in terms of making a living.
Emotionally, there can be a feeling that others are not as supportive. There can be delays or difficulties in general when it comes to getting what you want or need from others. Intimacy may seem to dry up before it gets better. In April-May and then in November, the challenges of this position are more likely to be felt. You may need to deal with addictive behaviors, difficulties with a friend, or disillusionments about a long-term goal that no longer seems feasible or viable.
However, it’s a strong time for handling financial matters, especially debts and taxes, in a logical and realistic manner. These are unlikely to be drastic changes, but rather more on the lines of slow but sure progress, little by little.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: Spirituality, the Past, Private life
Your 2015 Taurus Horoscope, Uranus Profile, points to areas of your life that seem to speed up so that you are able to take some risks, innovate, and revolutionize.
In March 2011, you entered a lengthy cycle of review of past attachments, those things keeping you from exploring your individuality, and the things that make you unique. This process spans many years (it’s with you throughout 2015 and beyond, until March 2019). Initially, there can be some elements of your private life that are exposed. Secrets that you had kept might surface, for example. This might feel uncomfortable for now, but it’s part of a process that involves detaching yourself from certain areas of your private life and your past. The aim now is to free yourself from attitudes that have restricted you from moving forward with your life. Ultimately, you’ll be freer to start anew. Circumstances are such that this process comes easily and naturally until June. Changes can feel more challenging in mid-March, April-May, and October, when restlessness can distract you, and elements from the past can interfere with a current relationship for some of you.
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Beliefs, Travel, Attitudes, Work, Spirituality, Romance, Creativity
Your 2015 Taurus Horoscope reveals areas of life in which change and transformation take place. It’s a time for “out with the old, in with the new”. Attitudes, belief systems, and learning continue to transform this year. There is a stronger sense that change is good from October forward. You may be purging some of the beliefs or attitudes that no longer work for you. There may be people in your life who are bothered by the changes you are making, and these problems can be magnified in February, mid-March, and May. Circumstances may chain you to responsibilities and keep you from exploring the world or expanding your experiences. Family can also keep you close to home when you may be desiring to expand your horizons.
In 2015, the Moon’s Nodes and eclipse activity continue to affect your sectors of work, health, daily affairs, privacy, and spirituality, and these areas of life continue to evolve in important ways. Circumstances are such that you need to develop some healthier habits, routines, and schedules. You are called upon to rid yourself of guilt about under-performing, and to develop faith and trust in a larger more spiritual plan. It’s time to let go of some of your fears that you are not doing enough, to develop more compassion and understanding of others, and to be humble, feeling safe in the knowledge that you (and others) are not perfect. It’s time to let go of some of your obsessions with rules, details, and fears of not doing things perfectly, but it’s also important to take charge of your lifestyle and habits. Unexpected complications can force you to take the rest you need, unless you recognize this need and feed it. Work on balance between mental health and physical health; and between work and rest. With the North Node moving through your work/health sector most of the year (until October-November), you can benefit greatly from getting your life organized, and spending more time and energy on caring for your health and body. This is one of the major keys to happiness in 2015.
As well, and especially in the last quarter of the year, you will be challenged to express yourself more creatively and openly. Friendships, group associations, creativity, and romantic involvements are evolving in important ways. New group associations may be made, friendships can expand, and you are challenged to find a balance between your romantic life and your associations with friends. The North Node in your entertainment and romantic sector from October-November forward points to a real need to share yourself with others in unique, expressive ways, particularly around the eclipses in March (friendship/groups/teamwork eclipse) and September (creativity and romance eclipse).
Your Planetary Ruler in 2015: Venus is your planetary ruler. More power to you when your ruler is in your sign, and this year, this period is from March 17th to April 11th. Venus is retrograde from July 25th to September 6th. This can be a period for reflection, slowing down, and perhaps some backtracking. Venus aligns with Mars three times this year, on February 22nd, September 1st, and November 3rd, stimulating passion and increasing your personal magnetism (especially in November).
Detailed yearly horoscopes will be available shortly.
