Sighs of relief are abounding now that Mercury went direct this past Saturday -- Hallelujah! What I really wanted to title this blog was “Happy Birthday Taurus and How I survived the Mercury Retrograde of Spring 2011.” I have never heard more stories of people injuring themselves or coming down with sudden illnesses than during this past retrograde. I could write a manifesto on all the mishaps I encountered but the worst part was throwing out my neck and not being able to write or do much else for over two weeks. All better now, thankfully. How was your past 4 weeks or so? Was it challenging for you? Please comment and share and your stories -- I love to hear them.
No need to focus on the past -- instead, let’s focus instead on cheerleading Taurus. Things are looking great for Taurus as April wraps up and we move into May. This is possibly going to the best month of 2011 for Taurus so make this birthday extra celebratory!
Jupiter has been in Aries since the end of January offering a time of solitude and introspection. You’ve been spring-cleaning away those outdated ideas and relationships that no longer serve you -- all in preparation for the exciting month ahead and thereafter.
April started out with a large number of planets in your 12th house of secrets and the subconscious. Have you been in private talks regarding a new career move or venture or meeting up with a new special someone? Keep these things to yourself until the new Moon on May 3 or your secrets will no longer be secrets, even with your closest confidents. May will start out slow and a bit sluggish but will ramp up with positivity as we approach June.
Jupiter moves into your sign on June 4th and will provide all kinds of improvements. Lots of great opportunities and partnerships are going to emerge before you. Starting May 15, expect a boost in activity and your self-confidence. You will take on the world with a fresh new perspective and have the faith and freedom to be yourself. This enthusiastic new attitude is going to help you overcome obstacles you may have previously thought not possible and pave the way for positive personal development.
However, be weary to not get too big-headed or self-indulgent. You may want to seek counsel in order to avoid any poor decisions or carelessness during this time. We know how you love to have nice things Taurus but make sure you really need or can afford them, especially regarding investment opportunities. It may be wise to start a new exercise regimen to keep yourself in check and maintain a constructive use of your time. You have a lot of growth ahead of you Taurus so be prepared to handle this. Keep your chin up and there will be great rewards for this hard work and perseverance.
