The Bull

With Taurus as your Sun Sign

The Sun is in the fixed earth sign of Taurus in your chart. You are basically a steady, reliable type of person who is motivated by your material possessions, what you own and what you can get. You have a strong will and once you have set your mind on a course of action and you can carry it out with persistence and determination. The fixed nature of the sign, however, makes it difficult to change your course once you have started, even if it becomes apparent that the course you are following is wrong. Persistence can turn to stubbornness. Like the bull, you may be patient and slow to anger, but when roused can be furious. Often your anger can be sparked of by feelings of jealousy or possessiveness. You love the good life, but can become lazy and self-indulgent.

With Taurus as your Ascendant

The fixed earth sign of Taurus rising at the time of your birth indicates that you project an image of stability and reliability. Others may perceive you as a rather laid back or even a reserved person, although this may not be the case once they truly get to know you. You need to base your life on a secure material foundations before you can feel easy enough to pursue other goals; your confidence will grow along with your bank balance and you will need to see physical proof of your wealth and possessions before you “feel whole”. What you do need to realize is that material security can be an illusion that can easily disappear, so don’t spend your whole life chasing shadows, and learn to let go when necessary.

You are patient and persevering and yet fiercely stubborn, and you need to be pushed pretty hard before you lose your cool, but when you do, the object of your anger should just clear out of your way. Slow to enrage but slow also to calm down, your ire and feelings of resentment may last a long time before they subside. Relationships tend to be very intense and passionate and you may be a demanding person who’s energies need to be “earthed” through your relationships. Intimacy is important to you but not only the only factor in how you see relationships, as friendship will be high on your list of priorities too. Taurus rules the throat and the voice and many notable singers have Taurus rising, but also the thyroid gland (ruled by Venus) which controls weight gain; often problem with one’s weight can be traced back astrologically to this connection.

Taurus is ruled by the planet  Venus, the house position and aspects to this planet will be of particular importance in your chart.

January 2018 for Taurus Ascendant

These predictions have been written to fit your Ascendant sign, and that is dependent not only on the day your were born but also the time that you were born as well as the place of your birth.

Ok, so Taurus Ascendants, what does 2018 hold in store for you? Well it's natural to starting with the outer planets and how they are affecting you in general and this is a summary of where they are moving before I move on to a more detailed chronological look at the year ahead.


Overview - The Sun and Venus are in Capricorn as we start this year and Mercury joins them in this sign on 11th January and there is a general focus on faith, educational and international matters. Between 18th and 20th January both the Sun and Venus shift into Aquarius and as they do your values and ideas will move over to ones dedicated to your work and career. Mercury follows on behind moving into Aquarius on the last day of the month.

Mars rules action and what you wish to achieve, and it is moving in your house of relationships close to Jupiter. These two planets are dictating who you are coping with situations surrounding your relationships, marriage and partnerships during January. You'll be willing to use your generosity and charm to make things more acceptable to your partner on and around 8th of the month, and should try and be a bit more subtle and controlling around 16th January, however with Jupiter and Pluto in a sextile that might be difficult, as you may be prone to making grand gestures to please a partner. You might have chance to make a lasting impression on your partner's parents at this time, and this would also be an ideal time to seek counselling help if you require it, as you would be very receptive to the probing insight of an expert.

On the 17th January there is a 150 degree quincunx between Mars and Uranus, and this may see you having to adjust your ideas quite sharply in regard to that tries to interfere in your these relationships in some manner in an unexpected way. This could be a friend or connected to a group activity that either you or your partner has some kind of interest or connection with. It might be an idea to step back and assess the situation before you react, as there is a danger you may wade into a situation without thinking and make it worse than it actually is.

Mars moves into Sagittarius on the 26th and the focus will shift towards matters of anything shared, power and control issues, sex and intimacy, monies owed, debt and links to banks and investments. Now and in the next two months you will start to focus in more on these issues. This transit also could bring power battles your way and you could face manipulative tactics against you. This part of your chart is intrinsically linked to matters of change, secrets and psychological studies and your interest in anything taboo or hidden may increase.

On the 31st January we have the first of five eclipses this year, a lunar eclipse in Leo to start things off. This eclipse will highlight matters connected to your home, where you live and any property you own, the people you live with, your family members and especially your mother and any female contacts. This eclipse also highlights your personal security, national events affecting you and it is a place of endings as well. Any one of these matters will be subject to emotional change in the coming few months.
