Stay the Course!

Solidify your plans as Venus, Mars, and the Sun all enter determined Taurus this week! First, Venus moves into Taurus on April 15, when it's time to let go of fair-weather friends. The Sun and Mars conjunct in Aries on April 17, giving you one last burst of energy to get new plans going! Then, on April 19, the Sun enters Taurus -- followed by Mars on April 20 -- when you'll summon all the strength and determination you need to succeed!

April 15: Venus enters Taurus
The planet of love and values, Venus, moves into one of its home signs, Taurus (the other is Libra), to settle in and count its money. Your finances could use some attention, so if you can use this time to create a workable financial plan, you'll give yourself some much-deserved peace of mind. Whether you want to pay off a lingering credit card balance, make some investments, or set aside money for a child's education, this is a smart time to plan for the future. Furthermore, your relationships stand to benefit from getting a better sense of where your values match -- or don't. Loyalty is a top relationship consideration of Venus in Taurus ... and surely you know that loyalty to yourself is priceless!

April 17: The Sun conjuncts Mars
When these two forces come together, the sheer energy of this duo can turn either explosive or extremely productive -- and it's up to you to decide where you want to direct all this dynamism. Because both the Sun and Mars reside in fiery Aries, you may become involved in situations that call for you to defend or advocate your point of view; just take care to showcase your confidence while avoiding ugly ego battles. Whatever you do, use this powerful energy to chase down your goals!

April 19: The Sun enters Taurus
Whether you need to save for retirement or invest money in further education, you're likely wondering how you can create more material security in your life as the Sun now shines a big light on your finances. This is an ideal time to make decisions about how you want to spend, earn, and save your money. This practical transit lasts until May 21, so make the most of it.

April 20: Mars enters Taurus
As Mars leaves fiery Aries behind to join the Sun and Venus in earthy Taurus, the pace of your life slows down, giving you the breathing room you need to accomplish your goals. The gifts of patience and determination will be most helpful to you, so don't rush anything. Instead, work to create a solid foundation on which you can stand. Come June, when this active planet enters Gemini, you'll be ready to get your ideas out into the world and connect with people who can help you.
