Today's Astro Highlight for Taurus from Cafe Astrology
October 22, 2018
The Moon moves into your privacy sector very early today, dear Taurus, which can leave you craving more peace and quiet. This can happen, but it may be easier to achieve the quiet than the peace now. Mind you, the problem-solving you do now can be involved but truly helpful. There is excellent energy with you for brainstorming or connecting with someone through the mind. There can be illuminating conversations with or about a partner. Today's influences favor analysis and investigation. You're open to facing matters and dealing with them. If you skim the surface of problems, you'll pass by on the opportunities for discovery and growth. Through another person or a partner, you are discovering or redefining ideas and belief systems, and this is pronounced now.
Creativity: Fair ~ Love: Excellent ~ Business: Good

This Month: Taurus
October 2018 Monthly Horoscope Summary for Taurus: Work and health matters are busy this month, dear Taurus, although relationships can be on the tricky side with Venus, your ruler, retrograde in your partnership sector from the 5th forward. This is a time for processing your feelings, and nobody should be pushed into making decisions now. The New Moon on the 8th brings a charge of energy to your sector of work, health, and habits, and you're in a commanding position for fresh new starts in these areas of life, although not everything will get off the ground as planned. Mentally prepare for delays. Mars picks up the pace in your career sector, firing up ambitions, and focusing on your work can be satisfying in October.
There is an increasing focus on partnership and relationship matters this month with quite a bit of activity in your solar seventh house, and personal needs or plans might frequently go to the back burner. This is a natural process, and it's better not to fight it. Honor the important people in your life and play a supportive role. In fact, there can be mutual benefits involved. Complications are likely, and it's probably better to maintain some level of objectivity as you sort through your feelings.
Mars first moved to the top of your solar chart in May, but then turned retrograde and retreated into your solar ninth house. Some plans and projects that have their origins in May and June may have experienced delays or lags, but now you're enjoying the release of blocks, particularly related to travel, education, and career. You are now building up momentum and more wholeheartedly pursuing your career and life path goals. This is a potentially ambitious time when you're ready to step things up and shoot high. With Venus retrograde for most of this transit, however, you should watch for a too-aggressive approach. You can reach great heights but could be missing the mark just a little on a social level. Venus is not helping you in the usual way, and you might want to watch for this, particularly around the 10th and 19th. Venus is helping you on other levels, though -- you're looking back with new eyes, and you can come to a greater understanding of past relationships and projects in the process.
October's general tone is a bit on the serious or introspective side despite the fact that you're in a relationship-focused cycle. This is primarily due to an emphasis on your work and health sector and the retrograde of your ruling planet, Venus. This is not necessarily about lacking confidence, but more about recognizing the need to look within for answers. Questioning your plans is likely--and necessary. A close partner may be distant or hard to read this month, and some disconnects in the love department are possible. These will begin to clear up later in November. For now, try not to push matters (or others). Give them space, and give yourself space as well.
The 15th and 25th are key dates for getting closer to your true feelings about a relationship. Learning new things about a previous relationship can figure strongly. You might gain further insight into an old problem, or reconnect with someone from your past. Set intentions and goals that better reflect these redefined wants and needs, as well as your expectations of others from the 25th. Energies are compelling for a fresh start or turning point.
The Full Moon on the 24th is personal, as it occurs in your sign! Uranus in your sign is involved, pointing to surprises and unexpected impulses. This lunation can bring a sudden revelation, and these can relate to your personal freedoms or attention to a partnership. If you’ve been working on auto-pilot, you might suddenly wonder why you've accepted restrictions and sidelines. Avoid abrupt moves, but listen to your emotions.
New relationships started in October can begin with enthusiasm, but then quickly become complicated. Pour your energy into productive paths. Get started on a new health and fitness routine.
Jupiter is on its last leg of its transit of your partnership sector and before it moves on November 9th, it connects beautifully with Mercury and Chiron, active in the final week of October. You can derive much joy from feeling part of a partnership now, and you could feel enlightened about a friendship or relationship. If you need to forgive and forget, this is a great time to do so.
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
