Lucky dates: 5th 8th and 18th
Planetary activity is strong this month. At least half the planets are in retrograde motion and things are somewhat slower in the world. Even your career planet Uranus is retrograde from the 15th onwards. So, it’s a good time to focus on the home and family, and your emotional well-being. Career issues will need time to resolve. Your ruler Venus moves into your interaction/intellectual interest’s sky on the 7th. It’s a good transit for students below college level, and for PR/Marketing people. Finances still look good, Mercury (money) is moving apace and you make quick progress with several paths to new earnings. Teaching and writing are profitable, your mind is sharper now, and contact skills are more enhanced. Until the 20th you have good financial support from the family. From the 5th onwards you earn money in happy ways, and spend on happy things – family and friends. You’ll feel the New August Moons energy of the 19th and a cosmic rainbow falls on the house of Taurus. Why not allow your imagination to take a joy ride that could end with a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?

All About Taurus
If you were born between 21st April and 20th May, then you are a Taurus star sign.
The Taurus sign is risk-averse and can be inflexible by nature, but they make up for this with determination. They are most comfortable when an established routine is in place, it makes them feel happy and secure. But of course, it can also get them stuck in a rut on occasion. Taurus loves the high-life, they want to enjoy the best of everything, including arts like theatre and music. They are definitely sensual people who seek out pleasure and like a bit of self-indulgence. They are reliable, dutiful and loyal, making them great friends as well as employees. They are conventional and do not like upset, but they have a light side to their personality making them fun partners.
This zodiac sign is full of common sense, a highly underrated trait. They have great integrity and are resilient. Whilst they are very practical in nature, and see things through, planning and organising as they go, Taureans are also creative and artistic.
Their thoughts on a topic or how to do things can become fixed, they may struggle to see a point of view from someone else’s perspective. People may mistake their wanting of the best things in life as aloofness, and appearing above their station. Their aversion to risk means they will play it safe wherever possible.
Taurus may find it difficult to forgive and forget, they are not great at letting things go. Which in turn can make it hard to move on.
A Taurus sign needs to be secure, can create feelings of jealousy and possessives over people or things they own. If they feel threatened, a temper can be unleashed that you would rarely otherwise see.
It is easy for Taurus to live their life too safely; they have such a fear of being judged.
Taureans have a strong connection to the Earth, and so hobbies that involve nature or arts are perfect. Like gardening, sculpture or even carpentry. They absolutely love their homes, so interior design, antiquing and cookery would all be enjoyed. They, of course, love food – so meals out is high up on their enjoyment list. In terms of sports, they like both solo pursuits like yoga and judo, but also some team activities like football.
As a star sign, Taurus makes good team-players. They will also happily get on with mundane jobs, that others will reject or put off until the last minute. They are diligent with information and are detail orientated as well as a patient.
Jobs connected to their pastimes would definitely suit, think landscape gardener, food critic, artist, or even an estate agent.
As you might expect, Taurus’ need for security also runs to money, so you can expect them to be avid savers. Tucking away money for their future and in case of an emergency.
Having said that, their fondness for high quality means they will spend on material possessions. Including property – investments that are more traditional and that they can truly research and understand.
This zodiac sign plays things quite close to their chest, they don’t move quickly when it comes to relationships. They want time to size up a potential partner. So, it could be some time before their feelings are revealed. Taurus makes a big effort on the dating front; they will put their best foot forward both in terms of physical appearance and conversation.
Once a relationship is established, you can expect a Taurus to be quite possessive. They won’t really want to share you and will want more and more of your time and attention. Of course, their rigidness will also want you to follow their lead and do things their way.
This is an affectionate sign; they are very caring and once committed will be truly devoted to their chosen one.
A good match for Taurus is the Cancer star sign, who are equally as involved in love, family and the home. This match also makes for a good communication scenario. Virgo and Pisces could also work. Another Taurus or Leo would not make for a good love match, as there is too much stubbornness and digging in of heels.
