Today's Astro Highlight for Taurus from Cafe Astrology
April 23, 2018
Circumstances are such that you may feel you are growing through your contact with someone special, dear Taurus, and sharing a perspective or personal philosophy can bring a relationship to a higher level of understanding. It's a strong time for lending a hand -- and accepting a hand, as well! Things seem to work better in partnership rather than on a solo level at this point. Doing something different and non-routine can be especially rewarding right now with a Mars-Jupiter sextile connecting your partnership and spirit sectors. A mini adventure can figure strongly and can be empowering as well. The Moon spends the day at the bottom of your solar chart, however, and you also appreciate some familiar or safe activities and comforts today.

Today's Taurus Horoscope by Patrick Arundell
(Taurus 21 April - 21 May)
Monday 23rd April
The coming days can see you determined to strike out on a new path or to accomplish a goal no matter what the cost. Indeed, a friend may be encouraging you all the way, even if what you are doing might seem a little extreme at times. Before you take the plunge in this regard though, consider if this is right for you, or whether it is merely a lot of effort for nothing much in return?

This Month: Taurus
April 2018 Monthly Horoscope for Taurus: The month ahead focuses on personal appeal, leisure, healing, and replenishing your energy, dear Taurus. Some intense aspects are happening in April, but these are occurring in harmony with your sign, making the month in an overall sense quite useful for making the most of things and helping others, as well.
As April begins, the Full Moon has just occurred in your work and health sector and is a call to action regarding your work, services, habits, and health in the first weeks of April. Even so, there is a strong focus on downtime this month with the Sun (until the 20th) and Mercury (all month) in your soul sector. This is a time for finding the time to rest, be still, reflect, and process recent events.
Venus spends most of the month in your sign (until April 24th). It harmonizes with heavyweight planets (Mars, Saturn, and Pluto) in your spirit sector, and self-expression is perhaps a little strong or heavy but also successful and well-received. Venus does very well this month, in fact, presenting you with excellent opportunities to attract what you want into your life. If you're looking for work, it's likely to come to you now. Work and health matters are favored, in general during this period.
On the 2nd, Mars and Saturn meet in your solar ninth house, and you're facing a reality and putting a responsibility or obligation behind you. This is a time for getting over a hump in your life. Do your best to focus on a game plan or strategy rather than dwelling on the frustration of the moment's obstacles. You're putting your life into better order now, and this will ultimately be a relief. Work hard, if possible, as much as you'd prefer to pursue your interests in a freeform manner. Tune out whatever distractions you can and put in extra effort so that you can put difficult situations in the rearview mirror.
You're very attractive this month, but perhaps a little elusive or undecided until the 20th forward. The mystery, in fact, may add a little more to your appeal! There's a nice window of opportunity from the 10-14. Your personal magnetism runs high, benefiting you for both work and social affairs. Super energy is with you for connecting on a romantic level, as well as a boost with friends, for learning, publishing, and communicating. Cooperation is vital, but a bit of friendly competition can help inspire improvements. Business connected with art, music, and other creative ventures can prosper, or there can be good timing with money and business now. You might reach mutually beneficial agreements.
Keep in mind, though, that as exciting and hopeful things are now, Mercury only turns direct on the 15th, and the New Moon occurs on that same date, after which things are clearer for new beginnings.
If a money or business matter has stalled, it's likely to move forward after the 15th, but only gain real traction after the 26th.
On the 20th, your birthday month begins, pointing to a period of personal discovery and awakening. This is a time for reorienting yourself and starting fresh. Sharing ideas and beliefs and taking part in activities that are outside of your usual routine can be magical around the 22-23. All month, you're in a robust cycle for tapping into your inner wisdom. You may not be making many cut-and-dried decisions, but you're doing some important thinking and processing.
The 25-26 is a time for learning or advancing in your trade, or for personal experiences that change your perspective. The goal should be to purge and let go, responsibly, if you're seeking out or defending a truth now. Stubbornness can be a positive when it involves working towards an important goal, and counter-productive when you shut yourself down entirely to valuable alternatives. Watch for over-defending an opinion. It can be a good time for making significant changes to educational, legal, and travel plans, however. The Full Moon on the 29th is brilliant for recognizing the need to make changes, particularly in relationships, and for finding all the tools you need to apply them constructively.
This Year: Taurus
2018 Yearly Horoscope Overview
The year ahead is potentially excellent for close relationships, dear Taurus. It’s a time for more fully enjoying your connections with others. You’re also likely to experience a more harmonious period overall when it’s easier than usual to meet your responsibilities. Even so, you get hints of an upcoming, long-term trend that’s sure to shake up your life in interesting ways.
While Uranus doesn’t settle in your sign until March 2019, this year, you are getting a taste of the excitement that is to come. At times, this influence can complicate things as a voice inside of you that is saying you want to be free! Those of you born very early in the sign (April 21-24) are feeling the changes most insistently while the rest of you are simply feeling the stirrings of things to come. You are making breaks from elements from your past that have limited your freedom or that have kept you from expressing your individuality. This is a time when you are more willing to take personal risks. Uranus awakens your consciousness to areas of your life that it touches in surprising ways. As such, there may be unexpected events that free you from confining situations or past conditioning patterns. You are more inspired now, and your personality bubbles with bursts of enthusiasm. There can be a significant break from the past that propels your life forward. Impatience will be something to look out for.
2018 is particularly excellent for close relationships and partnerships. These can be love or business partnerships, or even close buddies, and you’re also in good form for one-on-one connections involving advising and counseling. This may include leaving behind unhappy alliances or getting over a hump in an existing partnership. This can be a period for pursuing a dream or cherished goal with someone special. Teaming up makes sense now. It can also be a brilliant year for expanding your mind and experiences through travel with a partner. Someone seems to be in your corner this year. This can be a reasonable period, overall, for settling long-standing problems and coming to beneficial agreements.
From November forward, you benefit from an influence that boosts intimacy and shared finances. While you’ve had your share of concerns about debts, loans, benefits, or a partner’s income in recent years, you’re now working out something great for yourself in these areas.
Saturn is now in harmonious angle to your sign, and this brings a stronger feeling of stability into your life. This is a grounding influence that will be particularly helpful with Uranus moving into your sign as well. It also helps you focus on practical matters and meet responsibilities promptly. There can be the beginnings of a nice period of focus on education, whether this is formal or you’re going the self-taught or online route. You can be putting more effort and responsibility into learning. From now and until 2020, it’s important for you to learn a lot about your trade as that is when your professional peak occurs.
This Year in Love: Taurus
New! 2017-2018 Love Horoscope for Taurus
Saturn has been transiting a house in your solar chart that influences an existing partnership for those of you who are coupled. The resources of a relationship are in focus, and shared money may be an issue. It’s also about intimacy and sexual sharing, which might now be scrutinized. For those people not currently partnered, there can be changing feelings regarding intimacy nevertheless. This transit lasts until December 2017, so it’s not in effect for much longer.
Self-awareness is strong with Saturn in your solar eighth house (from 2015 – December 2017). The tendency to nurse a fantasy about a partner, yourself, or a relationship is lessened, which on one hand can bring up too much seriousness or possibly even a bit of bitterness in some, but on the other, it means you’re accepting people and yourself for who you are, and this is important for any serious partnership. There is less of an inclination to play or put up with emotional games. During this cycle, you have a chance to truly explore fears of rejection and power issues. There can be challenges with a partner over money and the sharing of chores or responsibilities – who does what, who doesn’t do what, who contributes more or who contributes less, etc. Certainly, the less flattering side of a relationship may show itself now.
Typically with Saturn transits, in the process of stripping away delusions and getting to a more realistic position, initially we can go to an unrealistically negative place. This is one of the reasons why Saturn transits are considered difficult, yet the rewards are significant once we find that balance – a place of truth.
Saturn moves out of your intimacy sector in mid-December 2017 and moves into harmony with your sign. This is a huge relief for relationships and for your attitude towards intimacy, in general.
And, with Jupiter’s move into your partnership sector starting on October 10th, 2017, you’re beginning a powerful, beneficial, supportive period for one-to-one relationships. These are the relationships that are defined by a commitment or in which one is implied. Jupiter’s transit of your partnership lasts until November 2018, and is wonderful for a fresh start with a person (or persons). This may be a business partnership or special friend, but for many, it’s a love relationship.
Close relationships are big headlines for you this year and next. This is about seeking out and finding joy in your closest relationships and getting in deeper touch with your needs from others. People help you during this period. You may be less independent than usual, but this is can be a wonderful thing, as you are opening up to others’ involvement in your life.
While Jupiter blesses your relationships and commitments, it forms fabulous aspects with Pluto and Neptune. This can mean attracting or enhancing a partnership through travel, higher education, shared beliefs, friendships, group associations, and community involvement….cont’d
