Mercury, who returned to Taurus just a day before the Sun will leave on Tuesday, just two days into your birthday month and new solar year. Mercury will only spend 15 days in your sign this year but this is long enough to get your head in the game and around your options. However, because your birthday month still has over two weeks to run, Venus won’t leave until the weekend and there is a New Moon next week, it is too soon to cement your game plan and resolutions for the coming year. Instead, this allows you to keep your mind and your options open. Meanwhile, while Mercury will only spend 15 days in Taurus this year, when he returns to your income sector on Tuesday it is to begin an over two month visit. It is a retrograde turn later in the month that will not only keep Mercury here but just as Saturn is turning retrograde in your career sector as well. The two will work as a team over the coming months and while Jupiter will leave your career sector next week, things will continue to evolve.
Whether you are an April or a May born Taurus, this is always your month, with your birthday month not ending until the Sun leaves on 21st May. This will always make this a month for new beginnings and for looking to the future but you have two advantages this time over other years. The first is that Mars has already spent eight weeks in Taurus this year and he has already opened new doors, forged new paths and got you excited about what you want from the coming year. The other advantage is that you began your birthday month with Venus and Mercury already in Taurus and with heart and mind on the same page from the start, something that didn’t happen last year. Until Mercury leaves on 4th May, he is giving you the intellectually savvy and strategic edge to get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. Until she leaves on 9th May, Venus is more focused on your wish list for the coming year, as she updates your personal, romantic and relationship desires and expectations. Both will be gone by the time a New Moon on 12th May brings a chance to commit to your new solar year, the future and the journey ahead. As Mercury and Venus leave Taurus it will be to return to your income sector, where they will have a chance to exploit the potential from the seven weeks that Mars has just spent here. Mars only left your income sector on 23rd April and having declared war on glass ceilings, roadblocks and barriers, whether real or imagined, there should be a lot for Mercury and Venus to exploit. So much so that instead of moving through in 14 to 15 days, a retrograde turn on 30th May will keep Mercury here until July. By the time the Sun returns on 21st May, this should be a well oiled machine. Meanwhile, Mars is spending his first, last and only full month in your communication sector in two years, where he will be on hand to support Jupiter when he returns to your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking on 14th May.
