Today's Taurus Horoscope from Cafe Astrology
April 24, 2019
Partnerships require more thought and perhaps strategy with Pluto retrograde starting today and running until October 3rd, dear Taurus. This yearly cycle is excellent for backing off a situation and gaining perspective, although you may, at times, feel a little frustrated as if things are moving a bit too slowly. You can feel driven to let go of falseness in your interactions, and you're likely to take love matters more to heart. Outwardly, however, you are not as inclined to take action or move things forward. You might also be more reflective when it comes to your personal belief systems or general outlook regarding your future. You may be reassessing, observing, and gaining a new vision of a close relationship, publishing project, educational path, or belief system during the coming five-plus months. Today brings an instructive conversation or someone to your confidence. The Moon spends the day in fellow Earth sign, Capricorn, encouraging any easy emotional flow and good humor.

This Month: Taurus
April 2019 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Taurus: April is about renewing your energy and clearing out the deadwood in your life, dear Taurus, as you ready yourself for new beginnings. You're likely to enjoy yourself along the way--it's not all psychological work, in other words--with Mercury and Venus working their magic on your social life until the 17th to 20th, respectively. The Sun in your sign then picks you up from the 20th forward, so it's not all deep diving into your psyche. Even so, you're in a fabulous position to learn more about yourself and your needs so that when your new beginnings present themselves, your instincts will be serving you well.
With Uranus now in your sign--and the Sun's first meeting with it on the 22nd--you're growing accustomed to a whole new way of "doing" your life. Uranus' long tour of your privacy sector in recent years was revealing and sometimes upsetting, but now that your private enemies or personal demons have been exposed, and you're starting to get over the shock of it all, you're ready to start fresh. Even though your career sector is not a place of special activity or interest this month, its ruler, Uranus, is sitting right in your sign, so for many Tauruses, this is about your true calling. But it's also about your personal initiative, presentation, and attitude. You're working for yourself first and foremost, and freedom to "do you" is more important to you than ever, perhaps and quite surprisingly, more so than security and certainty.
April is an important month for tying up loose ends and retiring or closing projects, attitudes, or goals. It's a good time for retreats and breaks if you can manage them. The last week of the month features an increase in activity, as well as your taste for it! Even so, there is still much, and perhaps even more, going on behind the scenes at this time--you're just more visible and noticeable. The only caution involved with this change of pace is to avoid being too impatient for results and hasty getting where you want to go.
A newer theme this month is Mars moving through your resources sector, bringing a stronger focus on your money, valuables, funds, assets, and talents. There can be good opportunities for applying yourself to business and practical affairs. Do watch for impulsiveness with your money. You could feel some reason to defend yourself, your values, and the respect you deserve. There can be a focus on more self-reliance when it comes to money. Finances can also be a hot topic with others, and there can be some volatility involved, but ultimately, stronger motivation to take charge.
Drama in your work and daily schedules can occur around the 19th. This can be a prompt either to focus on better self-care or to make changes with how you do your work or routines. The need to get organized and active in these areas comes on insistently at this time.
Friendships seem to improve day by day right from the get-go this month, mainly related to reliability and clarity. Still, there is a private or contemplative theme woven throughout the month, and you could be dealing with a lot behind the scenes, and possibly some challenges you've chosen to keep under wraps. Events can be such that you seek and get closure on various matters. You could be dealing with personal limitations stemming from your service-oriented responsibilities to others.
The final week of April finds you more noticeable but not as connected as one would expect with this visibility, as you still have a lot to sort out. Travel, publishing, educational, or promotional affairs require some rethinking. Consider reviving old studies or streamlining your approach to learning now.
Take every opportunity you can to learn new skills or develop your current ones. There could be an intense focus on training, learning, and connecting on the way. If there are weaknesses in a campaign or your current level of skill, then this is a time for handling problem areas. For some of you, there could be issues with a parent's daily affairs that require more responsibility on your part.
March 2019 Monthly Horoscope Summary for Taurus: This is a strong month for your social life, dear Taurus, even if there are some complications involved. Relationships, in general, are in focus, and for the most part, people are helpful and supportive of you. At the same time, you're expressing your independence with flair, and you may very well surprise others with the changes you're making or the "new you" you're displaying!
There are many opportunities for good conversations in March, particularly about past matters, resolving problems, and forgiveness. There are also treasures to be found in old projects, studies, and interests. Past friendships might be revisited while Mercury is retrograde from the 5-28. Rethinking some details of recent plans can work to your benefit in the long run.
While in many ways March is an important month for taking care of unfinished business, Mars and Uranus in your sign suggest a real need for change, action, and dynamism. Uranus moves into your sign on the 6th and will visit Taurus until 2026. You had a hint of this energy for several months last year, and now it's sticking with you. This transit can rile you up, and you may be itching to make some changes, possibly even radical ones. Courage strengthens or builds. Old methods and habits may need to go! You no longer tolerate certain restrictive circumstances.
You'll find with Uranus in your sign for the long haul that intuitive flashes become a regular part of your daily life. This transit has a lot of time to evolve (seven years!), and during this cycle, you'll do best if you distinguish between making changes for the sake of change, and making changes that will genuinely move you forward. It's a time when you'll be making significant changes regarding the way you express yourself. Changes are also highly likely in your home, career, and partnerships, as well. Inner changes now translate to the outside world, and you'll be seeking entirely new experiences. It's a time of a personal revolution in your life, and while this will all play out over time, you'll be feeling some hard-to-ignore stirrings now.
Under this Uranus transit, conditions in your life that have been stifling or confining become hard to tolerate. There may be unexpected events that free you from confining situations. Uranus is your career sector ruler, and this can mean big changes related to a job for many of you.
The New Moon on the 6th brings new energy to friendships and long-term goals. From the 28th forward, you will benefit from working on clearing up any problems that have cropped up with friends. Venus helps with this task! In fact, lovely Venus heads into your social sector just two days before Mercury finishes its retrograde in the same sector, ready to help smooth everything over. This is a time for feeling personally hopeful, emotionally satisfied, and socially popular. Friendships might be renewed or revitalized.
From the 20th, however, you're beginning a period best used for emotional renewal, tying up loose ends, and laying low. So, while you're in good shape for friendly relations, you also need to carve out some time to yourself.
Watch on the 20th for impulsive moves. You may be finding it hard to get what you want without causing a big stir. Someone may be wanting a refined approach from you and can misinterpret your passion as impatience or insensitivity.
Otherwise, the month offers plenty of opportunities to you as Mars in your sign plays well with others. It's a time for expressing yourself with confidence and vigor. You can be a little more assertive than usual in productive ways. It's a good time for recalling facts and figures or memories. You instinctively gravitate towards situations and people that help you grow, improve, learn, and expand your perspective.
Having a plan always makes you feel good, and one is likely to form this month, or a recently-devised plan comes into stronger focus. Projects related to publishing, education, travel, and non-routine activities can benefit. Your powers to lead, influence, and support others are stronger than usual. Activities or studies advance and satisfy you. Your stamina stands out.
This Year: Taurus
2019 Yearly Horoscope Overview
You’re in a wonderful period for self-discovery in 2019, dear Taurus. Uranus moves into your sign more consistently from March forward (last year you had a sneak peek of this energy), and Jupiter spends much of the year boosting your intimate world. The potential for growth and improvement is tremendous.
Jupiter in your solar eighth house until December is powerful for your intimate life. This is a period that’s potentially rich for enjoying private time, better self-understanding, or for developing a close relationship. It’s also a powerful influence for gaining others’ support, which can take the form of loans or moral support. Love is rich and deep in 2019.
But while you’re developing a rich, profound connection with a person or a project, you’re exploring your independence with Uranus now in your sign for seven years! You’re naturally a peace-loving sign, but with Uranus in Taurus, freedom may be more important to you than keeping the peace these days, and this is a radical change on some levels. People around you may feel as if they’re dealing with a brand new person at times in 2019 and beyond.
Uranus awakens your consciousness to areas of your life in which you’ve felt restricted. 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. It’s important to watch for rebellious behavior — to aim to act rather than react. Uranus transits can be times when there is a significant new influence, person, or path in your life that rather dramatically deviates from your version of normal. Those born from April 20-27 are most affected by this transit in 2019, while this energy is stirring for the rest of the sign.
Your mental outlook, belief systems, studies, and personal interests continue to be in strong focus this year. In 2019, you’re challenged to get your daily affairs into order in addition to extra attention to your more lofty endeavors. There are details to handle! Skills development may seem a little tedious with all of your larger interests in play, but it can be very useful and rewarding, and perhaps quite necessary.
Use the power of Mars in your sign from mid-February through to the last week of March for moving personal plans and interests forward. Love and creativity are in especially good form late August through to the end of September. Feelings can come into your life very suddenly now — this can be like a starburst on an emotional level. Still, there are complications in love this year – things need sorting. All year, but especially after your birthday month, watch for overreaching. Chances are moderating behavior will help simplify your life.
Long-term friendships may be forged this year, particularly through networks, personal interests, studies, the internet, and long distances. There may perhaps be some conflicts between friends and lovers or blurred boundaries in a particular relationship. You have Saturn and Pluto encouraging you to simplify and improve your life this year, and Neptune inspiring you, all the while with Uranus exciting you and demanding changes. Saturn’s support of your sign helps keep you grounded and stable, even with all of the changes and new desires brewing now, which is comforting for you as a Taurus.
This Year in Love: Taurus
2019 Love Horoscope for Taurus
Saturn has moved out of your intimacy sector (since mid-December 2017) and is in harmony with your sign, dear Taurus, continuing in 2019. This is a huge relief for relationships and for your attitude towards intimacy, in general!
Jupiter transiting your partnership sector last year, and from November 2018 to December 2019, Jupiter moves through your intimacy sector, ramping up the intimacy level of a relationship further. So, you get two years of extra attention (with Jupiter, think expansion) to one-on-one connections.
While Saturn is no longer transiting a relationship-focused area of your solar chart, it’s in harmony with your sign until 2020, and this subtly boosts you up. In fact, this transit usually stabilizes your life, and it does have this effect to a certain degree. However, Uranus is set to shake up your life on some levels, too, so you’re in for a real mix. Uranus spends around 7 years in a sign, and is now in yours.
Uranus transits Taurus from May 15- November 6, 2018, and then from March 6, 2019 – years 2025/6. While it’s only near the beginning and in fact retreats from November 2018 to March 2019, it’s sure to make some impact on you, especially those born early in the sign of Taurus. In fact, this can bring a show of independence – a burst of “I need to be free” energy – but until March 2019, you may pull yourself back into your shell.
Going forward, though, from March 2019 forward, you’ll be more and more independent, in general. Tauruses are known for their rootedness and desire for peace and calm, so the electric Uranian energy in your life may throw a few people you know for a loop! Don’t worry, the important people will adjust and accommodate your new need for self-expression. Just try to avoid making unnecessary sweeping changes, and try to discern between rebellious behavior and fair behavior. Make sure you’re making choices instead of only reacting.
Because Mercury rules your romance sector, its retrograde periods can sometimes point to a slowdown or period of review for romantic relationships. This can range in intensity from a period of no real progress, to an easing of pressure, to a period of limbo, to a backward turn. In 2019, Mercury is retrograde from March 5 to 28 (in your friendship sector), July 7 to 31, and then October 31 to November 20 (in your partnership sector, so double whammy)…cont’d
