An Open Letter To Taurus For February 2022.
How are you coping on a day-to-day basis? Seldom do we get through life without some experience of the “slings and arrows of outrageous fortune”. But I hope conditions haven't become too hard for you. Personally, I can't help but wonder if you are experiencing some kind of financial squeeze or feeling sad because your phone lacks some once essential numbers. Life is often unkind, and Venus ruled Taurus can feel every bump in Life's Highway, so to speak.
In fact, I think it's true to say that your average Taurean is a profoundly sociable person. Indeed, warm-hearted company is as essential to you as oxygen is to a burning flame. You'd also like to drive an upmarket car; wear the latest fashion and look your best. Better than the rest, in fact. Moreover, you set yourself high standards and strive to acquire the best things in life. You love comfort and luxury: it's your natural habitat. Most Taureans love intensely; play hard and enjoy a lazy spa day to help them relax and unwind. Yes, indeed. It's a hard life, but someone's got to live it!!
Venus – your ruling planet – is creating good vibrations with Uranus. From this, I deduce that your social interactions are likely to be both exciting and enjoyable. If you are currently free of any emotional attachments, then you might choose to back your bags and go looking for love and adventure. Indeed, love and friendship might become your prime concern. As a result, even more of your disposable income could be diverted into financing anything which might conceivably contribute to your increased happiness. In short: you are going to let your hair down and have a right good laugh in the company of some new and wonderful people.
However, your plans must remain flexible in the extreme. That's because Uranus energies are often the precursor to unforeseen circumstances and last minute changes. Uranus frequently provides a roller coaster ride, and it is seldom monotonous. As I've indicated: things can change in an instant. So don't be complacent or take too much for granted. But it isn't only your love-life, place of residence or financial status that might be changed in a flash.
A Sun/Saturn conjunction in your 10 House is indicative of promotion or self-employment. Moreover, Aquarius on the tenth house cusp could possibly indicate there might be something very exciting to celebrate with colleagues. This might be you doing something as mundane as planning a hen/stag night or baby-shower (keep some party-poppers close at hand) to inventing something as profound and world changing as George Stephenson's steam engine. The mind boggles! But a word of caution is appropriate: have a good time but don't do anything totally outrageous as this might offend someone in authority and incur the imposition of a financial penality, or, undermine your good reputation in the community.
Weeks one, two, and three all benefit from the restraining influences of Saturn. Like a paternal teacher caring for an occasionally boisterous pupil, Saturn will endeavour to restrain your impulsiveness and urge caution. This could prove timely as Mars applies heat and enthusiasm to an expansive, jovial and sometimes careless Jupiter. This might help you wisely negotiate your way around whatever obstacles obstruct the pathway to the fulfilment of your ambitions without either inflaming your passions, or, allowing you to bite off more than you can chew.
However, this isn't the week to listen uncritically to gossip, because the planet Neptune might encourage you to believe an untruth with potentially disadvantageous results. Yes, tread carefully for the first three weeks of February and be prepared to implement your changes with consideration and tact. Most of all, subject all those conspiracy theories you read on social media to a little reality-testing. Yes, a minority of them might be true: but not all of them.
Looking on the bright side, there is fun to be had this week as Venus – the plant of love and romance – metaphorically climbs into bed with passionate Mars. If this doesn't hint at some potentially boisterous and rowdy pleasure activities, I'll eat my hat!
Interestingly, both Mars and Mercury are in the Ninth House of the Zodiac. This has potential ramifications for everyone engaged in further education. I suspect that even the most reluctant student will have good reason to sharpen their intellect and focus upon their studies with increasing vigour. Or, might this have more to do with the fact that sensual Mars is in an intimate embrace with seductive Venus in the House Of Learning?
It's conceivable that a few Taurean students might give way to temptation in the face of such a sensual cocktail of planetary desires. Indeed, predatory university staff, too, might throw caution to the wind and become intimately involved with their students. Only time will tell. May I highlight the fact that Pluto – frequently associated with human regenerative processes and pregnancy – is also included in this potentially incendiary and self-destructive planetary cocktail. Perhaps this is an appropriate time to consider your ethical position on such issues as contraception and abortion. Well, if you will play with matches!!
Changing tack for one moment: a stroke of good fortune or a life enhancing experience might link your choice of career and future reputation to a friendship formed in a group setting: possibly a political meeting or ecological demonstration. You'll have to put your thinking caps on because this particular conundrum has me completely baffled. On a less grandiose theme: a minority, Taureans will sublimate their natural inclination to do something physically demanding into a pastime involving “virtual reality”. Anyone for a marathon indoors game of tennis, I wonder?
Distant relatives rekindle your love and affection when they reach out to contact you. However, current restrictions challenge your ability to respond. If things were different, you would simply catch a bus or schedule a flight to wherever was necessary. But your situation is different now. Indeed, there may be a divergence of opinion how best to react in the current circumstances, and you might be hard-pressed to suppress your annoyance at some proposals or remedies suggested by well-meaning friends and relatives. Many of my readers will feel hemmed in by adverse circumstances, and perhaps a little powerless to respond in a way they would like. Try not to let developments get you down too much. Remember, we are all pawns in the hands of this dreadful pandemic.
However, it's not all doom and gloom. There could be something to celebrate, as indicated by Jupiter/Uranus energies. New ideas, or, the chance to make a fresh start awakens the optimist in you. Your spirits soar to new heights. Things begin to look better. Fingers crossed – perhaps the tide has begun to turn in your favour.
Books and a new interest capture your imagination. One event in particular gives you something fresh to share with newly acquired friends. Indeed, you discover to your delight an inviting community of like-minded individuals who invite you to share your opinions with them. It's like you find a new home and a substitute family.
This might be especially true of those interested in learning more about astrology. Astrology is a subject you can really immerse yourself in. It also has the power to provide the solution to many unanswered questions. I recommend it to you. In fact, I'm tempted to speculate that some of my readers might discover that their fledgling interest in astrology might flourish and bloom to such an extent that it becomes their major passion and perhaps even their future occupation.
Furthermore, Sun/Saturn energies suggest that this is an appropriate time to adopt the role of a “Teacher” in some way. However, having said that, I would not discount the possibility that you might become active in local politics; start to work on the land in some way; become involved in a building project, or, start your own business as a sole-trader.
The preponderance of Jupiter's benign and potentially helpful influence might beget a surplus of optimism and self-confidence. Moreover, your ruling planet's contact with self-assertive Mars fortifies your resolve to do well both emotionally and financially. These various factors all combine to offer you – should you decide to exploit it appropriately – a magnificent opportunity to thrive and prosper. Hopefully, you will have the good fortune and courage to transform your future in a way you truly deserve. Yes, it's looking good for the majority of Taurus born. Finally, may I take the opportunity to wish you all the best for the future. So, until I write again: “God Bless and Protect!”
