“Be the change you want to see in the world”? Careful what you wish for, Bull.
On Tuesday, May 15 revolutionary Uranus blasts into your sign for the first time since 1942, electrifying your first house of self, identity and appearance.
You may have sensed a major shift has been coming for some time now, and this week, it arrives with a fanfare. The ground-shaking, game-changing planet will plug into Taurus for the next eight years, sending jolts of transformative energy through your entire life (except during one last dip back into Aries from November 6, 2018, to March 6, 2019).
Uranus rules metamorphosis, technology and inventions, but in the sign of the grounded Bull, things may move more slowly and manageably. Still, this is a once-in-a-lifetime invitation to let your freak flag fly and your pioneering spirit soar!
There’s also a new moon in Taurus on this day—the only one of the year. Look at areas where there’s fear or unhealthy attachment and set some lofty intentions for what you want to release AND manifest during this Uranian cycle.
As if on cue, on Wednesday, action planet Mars lets out the throttle on your ambition when he blasts into Aquarius and your tenth house of professional success until August 12.
This extra-long phase (due to a retrograde that begins on June 26 and a sequel transit from September 10 to November 15) lets you work on Taurus time, meaning slow and steadfastly.
First, though, you need to get crystal-clear about what those goals ARE. Whether you envision yourself in the executive suite, at the top of the masthead or launching your own brand, you want to have a solid vision—and a map to get you there.
Use this Martian power surge to get a hoof up on the competition, and then keep plugging away until you hit your mark.
Disperse your energy efficiently, and you’ll still have plenty of time for a personal life. Just remember to always bring business cards and have your elevator pitch well rehearsed.
During this career-flavored transit, every party and interaction can double as a networking opportunity. The one heads-up with Mars here is that it can ratchet up stress and make you almost too zealous.
Check yourself to make sure you aren’t coming on too fast or too strong when talking shop. When in doubt, lean in to your killer sense of humor. Speak your mind this weekend, though, when the stars emphasize honest but empathetic communication.
On Saturday, flirty Venus enters your expressive and social third house, giving you the gift of gab. Single Bulls can meet a slew of eligible playmates—don’t be afraid to make the opening gambit.
Couples should prioritize playtime by getting out of the house (and out of your heads!) and enjoying a day in nature, at the zoo or on a destination-less road trip.
On Sunday, el Sol glides into loquacious Gemini and your grounding second house until June 21. Quality time with friends and loved ones will feel especially rewarding.
And since this is your money zone, take advantage of this solar flare and work some practical magic with your finances. Summer is around the corner, and you may already have big plans! /by TheAstroTwins
