Be open to exploring unfamiliar territory. Your employer might ask you to undergo a training course. Although the prospect of attending these sessions is boring, you should accept the offer. Getting a certificate or degree will improve your professional prospects. Suddenly, you'll get a promotion or lucrative job offers. You will capitalise on your newly acquired expertise. Landing a position that involves extensive travel is a distinct possibility. You'll enjoy getting paid to see the world on a lavish expense account.
Week beginning Monday 13th of January 2020
Use your imagination and take the initiative. Your willingness to experiment will result in a new discovery. You're able to pick up on possibilities and opportunities that other people have overlooked. Preparations for change are being set underway. An older relative will support and approve of your decisions. You are excited about an emerging friendship and it will feel good to mix with people who share your interests and beliefs. You might feel you have found a soulmate.
Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac. A sensuous and tactile earth sign, ruled by the planet Venus. She was the Roman Goddess of Love, a beauty with a curvaceous figure, and a beautiful smile just like yours!
The symbol for Taurus is the bull, a magnificent, strong and normally placid beast, that will stand its ground with fortitude. These same qualities can be said of you. Normally placid, but not always!
Most of the time you're agreeable and adorable, but on those very rare occasions when someone pushes you too far, your temper can be explosive. We may have to wave a red flag at a bull for a long time before it charges, then we should get out of its way!
Bull-headed might apply to you, because once you make your mind up, all the persuasion in the world is not going to change it. If you're ever a bull in a china shop, it will most likely be because someone is hurrying you, not understanding that you need to do things at your own steady pace.
It may seem that you do things a little more slowly than others, but you apply yourself more thoroughly. The friend who reads a book and finishes it in a fraction of the time that it takes you, probably won't recall the details a year on, you will.
The mode of Taurus is fixed. In other words you need stability and may actively dislike, or feel uncomfortable with, any big or unexpected changes. You definitely prefer the devil you know to the one that you don't.
Venus gives you a love of luxury and material things. You like money, for the wonderful things it buys and the security it brings. You don't mind working hard if it means you can indulge yourself and your loved-ones. You'll choose quality over quantity every time!
Venus also gives you an appreciation of beauty and form. You have a good eye for art and a good ear for music. Your tastes are discerning and it's likely that you have your own musical, literary or artistic gifts. With that said, we're equally likely to find you working on a farm, or in a garden, florist, kitchen, bakery, accounts department or bank.
Taurus is the sign that rules our personal possessions. You can be possessive about those things which belong to you, and why shouldn't you if they're yours! Taurus rules farming, not just the bulls that inhabit it, and the foods that grow in the soil to sustain us.
You're a tactile person who delights in sensual pleasures. This makes you a lover of good food, and you probably know exactly the wine you'd like with it, and which dessert would be best to follow. You incline towards a sweet tooth, perhaps this is why the Venus figure is often depicted as slightly plump or well-rounded.
You get along best with the other earth signs, Virgo and Capricorn and with the water signs, Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. Much of this will depend on the sign Venus was in at the time of your birth. It's never far from the Sun. If you're not sure and you'd like to be, one of our astrologers will be pleased to take your call.
