Taurus Monthly Horoscope May 2016This month the planets make an important shift: they move from the upper (career) half of your horoscope to the lower (home and family) half. By the end of the month there will be more planets in the lower half than the upper half.
You have had some very powerful career months, now it’s time to take a breather and focus on your family and your emotional life. When we are driven by the need for outer success, we tend to do whatever needs to be done regardless of how we feel. Thus there is a tendency to lose emotional harmony. If this continues for a long time, it can lead to all kinds of health, domestic and spiritual problems. Happily, the universe doesn’t allow this to go on for too long, and almost forces us sometimes to shift our attention.
The sun is setting on your year. Night is falling. Night is for sleeping, dreaming, visualization and ‘inner kinds’ of activities. It is for re-grouping your forces so that when the next sunrise comes, you will leap into your outer activities renewed and refreshed. So welcome this lull; it is for your ultimate good. We see another alteration this month as well.
You shift from ‘other worldliness’ – the abstract, supra-sensual dimensions of spirit – to hard-core, earthly reality. Your 1st house becomes very powerful – this began on the 20th of last month, but gets much stronger now. Now it is the pleasures of the senses that delight you. You are into a yearly personal pleasure peak.
Your spiritual understanding will help you to enjoy these pleasures even more and won’t let you abuse them. There is something delightful about a good meal, prepared well, or a good body rub. With your 1st house so powerful, health is good. Self-esteem is high. Regardless of what is happening in the outer world, you are a ‘somebody’ – a being – someone significant and important.
This is a period for having your own way in life. The cosmos supports this. Your way is the best way for you. Create conditions as you desire them to be. If there is a health problem, it comes from ‘too much of a good thing’. You have too much energy. And you might be prone to waste it on frivolous things. Mars enters your sign on the 11th and, while this gives you much physical energy and enhances musculature and athletic ability, it can also make you impatient and confrontational with other people.
This can lead to conflicts or even violence. So use Mars’ energy in a constructive way. Venus enters your sign on the 16th and this gives beauty and glamour to your image. You look and dress beautifully. You have a special sense of style these days – a special taste – thus it is good to buy clothing, jewellery or personal accessories during this period.
Your financial planet also moves into your sign on the 16th. This tends to prosperity. Financial opportunities come to you. Money comes to you. You are spending on yourself, investing in yourself. You have an ‘image of wealth’ during this period. On the 21st the Sun enters your money house and you begin a yearly financial peak. Family is very supportive financially.
You are spending on the home and family, but can also earn from them. Job opportunities are also coming to you (if you are looking for them) after the 16th. Venus makes a beautiful aspect with Jupiter from the 10th to the 13th and this too should bring financial rewards (and job opportunities as well).
Love is much improved this month. More placid and calm. Singles have many love affair opportunities from the 16th onwards – they come to you. But these are not serious, long-term relationships.
