Click daily, weekly or monthly for your horoscope
Payment for a job well done will be less than expected. An aggravating Full Moon on the 12th will trigger an angry exchange with a deceptive client or customer. If you loaned money to a friend, it will be difficult to be repaid. The person you helped will claim they were given this sum as a gift. Let this be a lesson about mixing friendship with finance. Combining the two is often disastrous. Things will start looking up on the 26th, when a Solar Eclipse invites you to expand your horizons. Going on an overseas trip, enrolling in an advanced academic programme or publishing a book are among the possibilities. It's also possible that you'll broadcast your ideas via a newspaper column, podcast or blog. Use the closing days of the year to build a reputation as a respected expert. Your services shouldn't come free, they have to be paid for, allowing you to travel in style.
Monday 9th of December 2019
Listen more than you speak. You'll notice something important while observing your surroundings. Someone who has been written off as stupid or incapable is a lot smarter than they appear. You might want to team up for a difficult job. Getting to the bottom of a mystery will be satisfying. You have a knack for turning up information that others overlook. Thanks to this investigation, you'll make an informed financial choice that protects your wealth. It pays to know the inside story.
Week beginning Monday 9th of December 2019
Your communication skills are high making this a great time to get your creative ideas across. You're the life and soul of the party. At work, pour your energy into a team effort that could lead to a new business opportunity. Find ways to showcase your talent and promote your interests. Include newsy letters in your Christmas cards. A joint account will receive a welcome boost and this extra money will come in useful for the coming festivities.
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.
