Sun in Taurus: Basking in the Sun
(May 13 to June 14)

 

The Sun moves into the sign Taurus on May 13th and stays until June 14th. (See our conversion chart below.) This is a very special time of year for all Taureans, but we must remember, each and every one of us has the 12 astrological signs in our astrological chart, which means we all have Taurus in one of our houses. And whichever house Taurus resides in your birth chart is the area of your life where the effects of the Sun in Taurus will have the most impact.

Taurus is the natural ruler of the second house relating to our immediate environment and what we value in life, including our attitude towards assets and material possessions. At this time, the energy of Taurus may inspire us to purchase beautiful items and focus on ways to boost our finances for greater security, stability and comfort.

Venus, the planet of love, luxury and sensuality, rules this sign. It also indicates a love for nature, the arts, and all that is aesthetically pleasing. Taurus reflects the love to bask in the sun, enjoying all the new scents of spring. The sign Taurus is associated with gardening, as it loves connecting with the earth to reap her bounty.

The lesson for the sign Taurus is to not get trapped in the material world of status, wealth, and possessions. It relates to the need to be able to determine what to do with all it possesses. Energy must keep flowing so that it does not stagnate. This is accomplished when time, energy, and material resources are used in a constructive, helpful and sharing way. Consequently, this is a great time to do a “Marie Kondo” house cleaning where a clutter-free home can help us bring more joy and prosperity to our life.

A Major Cosmic Shift: Pluto Enters Capricorn

Ready or not, it is out with the old and in with the new. On March 17th Pluto ended its long sojourn in the sign of Sagittarius that began December 2004, and moved into Capricorn, where it will reside until the year 2038.

We will all be impacted by the energy of this major transition for years to come as we all have Pluto transiting the sign Capricorn somewhere in our birth chart. Pluto is a prime mover when it comes to worldwide and individual transformation, so have no doubt, this is not a transition any of us can afford to take lightly; it has the potential to turn our world upside-down and inside-out, shake us to the very core of our being and permanently alter our lives. It’s been nearly two-and-a-half centuries since Pluto has been in Capricorn, a period marked by the advent of individual rights and freedoms, global social change and widespread political unrest. So, fasten your seat belts, the years ahead are sure to be exciting and more than a little bit bumpy!

Even though modern astronomers stripped Pluto of full planetary status in 2006 and demoted it to the category of mere “dwarf planet”, this distant celestial body in the outer solar system remains an astrological giant. Pluto is a force we all must reckon with in our lives and in our charts—we ignore it at our peril. Indeed, some Vedic astrologers liken Pluto to the mighty Lord Shiva, the ultra-powerful Hindu god who wields the power of both Creation and Destruction over everything that exists in the Cosmos. In astrology, Pluto and Mars are co-rulers of Scorpio, the sign of transformation. Mars, the God of War, expresses its energy in a warrior-like fashion. Pluto expresses the same energy on an atomic level. When Pluto impacts your astrological chart, you are going to radically revise the way you look at yourself and your lifestyle.

Pluto compels us to take a look at our life. If there are skeletons in our closet or hidden desires locked in our heart, Pluto won’t hesitate to kick down the door, forcing us to acknowledge and deal with them. This includes matters we’ve been hiding both from ourselves and from others, regardless of when they occurred—deeply buried childhood traumas, current issues arising from our recent past or even unresolved issues that have followed us from past lifetimes . . . all will be revealed. If we resist Pluto and choose to avoid the truth it shows us, it will be very difficult for us to move forward in any direction either intellectually, emotionally, professionally or spiritually. However, if we choose to adapt to what Pluto teaches us and ride the waves of change, we will make enormous evolutionary strides in our outlook, lifestyle, relationships and careers that bring us great joy and contentment. Indeed, we can use the energy of Pluto to demolish old structured ways of being that no longer work for us, dump excess emotional baggage and rid ourselves of persistent bad habits and negative thinking. Doing so will free us to grow as individuals, explore new possibilities and expand our horizons . . . in other words, to completely recreate ourselves and our lives.

Perhaps more than any other planet in the zodiac, Pluto ushers us toward self-awareness, a prerequisite for our evolutionary development. This Plutonian process of self-discovery can be painful and even volatile, but it is necessary if we are to embrace a new and better life—the way a cataclysmic forest fire destroys towering, deep-rooted trees that block out sunlight, making it possible for beautiful wildflowers to spring from the ashes and carpet the woodland floor. So, while Pluto may dismantle our lives, it gives us the wisdom, self-knowledge and opportunity to build a happier and more enlightened existence from the ruins.

But don’t think that Pluto is restricted to the affairs of individual human beings—its reach extends to humankind on a multi-generational scale. It takes Pluto 248 years to complete a single orbit around the sun, which is the reason it spends many years residing in each astrological sign and each house in our natal chart. Global upheaval and transformation often accompany a major Pluto transition, such as the fall of the Roman Empire, the dawning of the Renaissance and the onset of the American Revolution. This is why Pluto transiting into Capricorn is such a big deal.

Capricorn is a solid earth sign; it relates to self-discipline, direction and focus. Furthermore, Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the planet of responsibility and wisdom whose role is to teach us how to build a sturdy foundation upon which to live a successful and meaningful life. The sign of Capricorn also pertains to karma, which implies a desire for freedom to rule one’s own destiny over many lifetimes. So, with Pluto now in Capricorn, the curtain is being pulled back to reveal the cracks and flaws in our foundation. No doubt, those flaws will become so obvious to us (be it in our social structures, political systems or personal lives) that we will be driven to make some huge and immediate changes. And as Capricorn is related to the passage of time, during this transit we will all become more acutely aware of how short (and precious) life is and feel a growing urge to make the most of it.

To determine which areas of our lives will be most affected by this transition, we must ascertain how Pluto is interacting with the other planets in our natal chart, and which of our 12 astrological houses it will occupy. For example, if Pluto transits our First House, over the coming years we will likely undergo significant transformation in First House issues, such as our self-image—both in the way we view ourselves and how we project ourselves to world around us. It is likely we will have to make some big adjustments in our lifestyle and attitudes to facilitate these changes. If Pluto transits our Fifth House, which pertains to love, children, creativity and matters of the heart, we should be prepared for a transformation in our relationship status.

No matter how you cut it—this transit will change our lives. So why not find out where Pluto will be in your chart by booking a consultation with us right now? We are here to help! Don’t let the positive energy of Pluto in Capricorn pass you by—we will show you how to make the most of this incredibly powerful and transformative cosmic event.

An Important Transit: Jupiter in Scorpio
(October 4th, 2018 to October 29th, 2019)

If life seems a little more promising lately, thank Jupiter!

On October 4th Jupiter entered the sign of Scorpio, which is ruled by Jupiter’s very good friend, the planet Mars—a friendship that makes for an extremely auspicious planetary combination. In Mars-ruled Scorpio, Jupiter feels right at home, providing it with a sense of comfort and security that allows its many positive (and powerful) qualities to shine forth and brighten our lives.

The ancients referred to Jupiter as Guru, which means “the dispeller of darkness”. Jupiter’s cosmic role is to remove blinders from our eyes, show us our true purpose in life and expand our consciousness. These abilities place Jupiter in perfect sync with Scorpio, a sign related to the 8th house—the house of uncovering truth, solving perplexing mysteries and discovering hidden treasures. Not only does Jupiter become a truly benefic planet when in Scorpio, because it is under the direct influence of Mars (the planet of courage, willpower and forward momentum), Jupiter now has the energy and fearlessness to express its broad vision and idealism without restraint. And all this wonderful energy will be radiating around us until next fall, when Jupiter leaves Scorpio on October, 29th, 2019.

This is a very welcome change of pace because for much of the past year (since September, 2017), Jupiter was transiting through the sign of Libra, which is ruled by Jupiter’s arch rival—the planet Venus. Venus is much more focused on striving for harmony than on the Jovian qualities of self-awareness, spiritual growth and discovering purpose, which is why Jupiter could not fully express itself while in Libra. But thankfully, the shackles have been released and all of us can experience the benefic energy of Jupiter unleashed.

So, take advantage of the intense passion and emotion of Scorpio during this auspicious transit to unearth your hidden strengths and talents, and to find your purpose in life. For the next year the world (and your destiny) are yours to discover!

If you would like to learn more about Jupiter in Scorpio, how you can take advantage of this transit’s positive energy and how it is affecting your individual astrological chart, please call us to book a private consultation, either in person, by phone or via Zoom. We’ll explain how you can make the most of this incredible cosmic event over the next year!
