Let's deconstruct the statement "the more, the merrier." It is the quality of the merry that truly matters, not the quantity. This sentiment becomes especially important because we have entered into the concentrated earth (physical) sign of Taurus. Leaving the headstrong fire of Aries, now we all learn the lesson of what truly matters. What lasts? We can stubbornly adhere to false hopes or more money, but security lies within, for sure. This time of year teaches each of us how to find the meaning of our lives and manifest said meaning for everyone to see.
With self-assertive Mars, self-transformative Pluto and generous Jupiter staking claim in your element, you've got much going on. You cannot afford to be a scrooge or behave from a pompous perspective. Give of yourself until it almost hurts, and do this cheerfully.
Taurus, April 20-May 20, concentrating earth (physical)
On one level, you do not realize how much you have to offer those closest to you. Sometimes you allow yourself to count the cost too much. For the next six weeks, cease keeping score of what you've received from us. It is beyond time to clean the slate. Decisive Mars makes mean moves in compatible and adaptable earth sign of Virgo. Take the lead in any endeavor that means a lot to you. Do not be afraid to demonstrate about what or whom you possess real passion. You will not regret taking the lead toward making your life over in your own image. Whatever you give freely returns to you tenfold. Saturday's New Moon accentuates your positive self-assertion and the basic joy of simply being your best self. After all, we are called human beings, not human doings.
Virgo, August 23-September 22, adapting earth (physical)
For the past four years, introspective Pluto has been hanging out in mutually reserved and common-sense-oriented Capricorn. Imagine that your life has been like a group of citizens wanting to form their own government. Self-determination has been a must for you. You can no longer afford to accept other people's values as if they were your own, no matter how much you love them. It is more important for you to stand up and be counted than to fall for any ol' smoke and mirror trick from those who sell snake oil. Pluto demands an exacting price of authentic behavior based on reflection upon your highest potentials. Immense creativity is your birthright. Get to using it in every area of your life, please.
Capricorn, December 22-January 20, initiating earth (physical)
If you haven't been singing, If I can't have you/I don't want nobody else, baby, then I don't know what to tell you. Move beyond what your life is supposed to look like and move into what your life is supposed to feel like. I know, I know that feelings are to be suppressed for the greater and common good. But not all feelings, all the time. Benevolent Jupiter is taking one for your pragmatic team in sensual Taurus. Huh? Accept that you are a physical human being (read Taurus' message, if you haven't already). You are not a cloistered nun or feeble priest. Cease placing should over your life like fertilizer onto a needy garden. Start being the outgoing self you have scarcely allowed yourself to imagine you are.
Earth time of year takes you out of the realm of theories and your mind. You become a real person grounded in what you can really manifest. The less abstract you behave now, the more attractive you are to everyone, including yourself.
