First I will address the Sun in Taurus and then the final few paragraphs will be how it pertains to your Sun Sign. It is important to undertand how the energy of the Sun operates under various conditions (Sun Signs) so that you can better understand how it will operate in your own Life.

This Taurus energy has the motto of, "I have therefore I am." Taurus mainly deals your self-worth and how you sustain yourself based on your morals and values. This translates into your material resources, which means you personal money and your personal possessions. Keep in mind that it has to do with your morals, values, how you feel about sex and your principles on which you stand. Taurus naturally rules the 2nd house, so it is the 2nd house in your chart that tells what you will and won't do for money, physical possessions or sex. Wow wee, that's a HUGE awareness so read that last line again and remember it!

Taurus energy holds strong and firm with a slow steady effort. Taurus is a fixed sign, which makes it difficult to sway. Taurus usually gets a bad rap for being stubborn but it's more like they will not compromise where they stand. They want what they want and they won't settle for what they don't want. Simple as that! Naturally, there will be some Taurus' that have to learn this the hard way but they don't call Taurus "hard-headed" for nothing. Folks, it is that fixed nature and if you don't budge, then you don't move and you will end up standing in the same pasture next year, mooing at the cars as they pass by. BORING!

There is no doubt about it, Taurus is a money sign and concerned with how to get money and how to hold on to it. Wherever Taurus shows up in your personal natal chart is where you will associate with those who have money or migrate to those things that can help you get the money you want and need. Taurus energy has to be very clear on how they acquire wealth so as not to compromise themselves or take short cuts that do not give long standing results. As we all know, a cow/bull can stand in the same place for a longgggg time, so they need results with longevity and value. Taurus need physical security, which happens to show up as money and possessions.

You might be asking yourself, "Well, what does this Taurus energy mean for me?" Well folks, you HAVE TO look at your personal natal chart to see where Taurus shows up for you. It is in that area of your chart where you are concerned about money, values, morals, etc. If this energy shows up in your 11th house of friends, then you will likely have friends in high places and friends with money. You will associated with these types of people. If this energy shows up in your 7th house of committments, then this is how your committed partner 'should' arrive, with money, bearing gifts and with high morals and values. Keep in mind I said, "should" arrive.

Taurus is sloowwwww moving energy. You don't see too many cows running the pasture but it is nice, graceful, meandering energy that knows exactly what it wants and it will get it.

The Sun in Taurus is moving through your 6th house of daily life, health, hygiene, food, work ethic, employees, service, skills, servants, small animals, clothing and sickness. It is about the service you give to others and your daily habits. This house rules daily routine, the working environment, skills, pets, animals and service.

This is the house of service, daily regimen and health and you will probably find yourself helping others more than usual. Routine daily activities take on paramount importance. You can go with flow of this energy by getting yourself back into a routine that feels Good for you. Take the time to re-examine what you have been doing. Identify what is no longer working for you (health wise) and what is working for you. It's time to upgrade your health and wellness lifestyle and daily regimen.

Since this is the 6th house of health and hygiene you can get your groove back. You will probably look and feel better than you have in quite some time. Step into alignment with routine activities that will keep you on track. Organizing your day will help you get to where you desire to be in the long run.

Mercury stands for the intellect, common sense, cold reason, commerce and business. Its qualities are fluidity and versatility. Its position and aspects tell us about our communication and learning habits and our modes of thinking. The house that Mercury occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

First I will write about Mercury in Taurus and then the last couple of paragraphs will be about how it impacts your sign. Remember from the above paragraph, Mercury rules the mind, how we communicate and our reasoning power. Taurus is the sign of practicality, it is efficient, level-headed and not at all into speculation, meaning guessing at something without having evidence or even incomplete evidence. So you see, Mercury in Taurus is not a push-over. In other words, there is no cow-tipping going on with this placement. Mercury in Taurus has common sense.

Mercury in Taurus is not a strong intellectual placement contemplating philosphical questions about Life, nor is it known for being overly creative. If an individual is highly intellectual in this manner or highly creative, then those qualities probably came through some other placement in their chart. Mercury in Taurus helps us keep our head glued on straight and doesn't let us float away in fantasy and delusion. It can be quite a lifesaver, especially where money is concerned. Mercury in Taurus isn't going to blow the rent money being tempted by something else. This placement has the 'power of concentration'. The mind (Mercury) can become so fixed (Taurus) that nothing will interrupt its focus and concentration. While everything else could be crumbling down, Mercury in Taurus will not break its concentration and will carry on as if it didn't hear a thing. Mercury in Taurus cannot and will not be disturbed. If there is minutia, drama or just something unimportant, Mercury in Taurus will be unmoved and undisturbed. The problem with this placement is something important could be happening and Mercury in Taurus will become actually blind to it. Now this becomes just downright stubborn and difficult simply because it didn't want to be moved or bothered. Can you just picture that stubborn bull standing out in the pasture unmoveable? If this is carried too far then an individual could easily miss something that was supposed to be Good for them. BAM! Stubbornness and a fixed sense of concentration won but is that a Good thing and if so, was it one, the other or both?

Mercury in Taurus is so practical and such a straight shooter that this placement is stronger in areas such as science and math. This is much more of a left-brain placement than a right-brain placement. This placement is structured and grounded with firm and sound answers to questions. When Mercury in Taurus is badly aspected in an individual's chart, then it is just downright obstinate and refuses to change. Folks, if you have this placement (Mercury in Taurus) in your personal natal chart, do not let this transit make you obstinate. It's not only unattractive, it's controlling, it's difficult and it's a ridiculous space from which to live your Life.

Mercury in Taurus is moving through your 6th house of daily life, health, hygiene, food, work, employees, service, skills, servants, small animals, clothing and sickness.

Mercury also rules the mind and thinking; therefore, during this transit your mind will be more focused on work and activities of daily living. Your mind turns more analytical and the focus will be geared toward doing things correctly, efficiently and methodically. There may be a tendency to correct or criticize others so you will want to pay attention to yourself when or if this happens. Correct yourself as you go along. At work you may have a more discriminating and objective approach as you discuss issues with your boss, co-workers or your own employees. If an opportunity presents itself to improve your skills, take it! Scroll down to read your Venus Opportunity.

First let's talk about the meaning of Venus in the sign of Leo. Venus is the planet of Love, romance, pleasure, relationships, self-worth, dignity and all things beautiful. Venus is like the Greek root phil- or philo- which means to have a Love of or strong affinity for. So when you think of Venus in your personal natal chart first think "Love of" and then add whatever sign is involved.

Pisces rules the 12th house of silent suffering and solitude. Pisces represents what goes on behind closed doors that you don't want others to see or know about you. It presents reflection, prayer, meditation, the silent sufferer and introspection. Pisces rules spiritual healing and faith healing. It rules areas behind closed doors where people are not openly seen such as hospitals, prisons, jails and institutions. This is where people silently suffer. This is also very monk-like or cloistered nun behavior. Pisces rules the psychological mind and mental health.

Pisces is naturally ruled by Neptune, the planet of dreams, visions, altared states, drunkedness, stupors, alcohol, drugs, drug habits, gases and gasoline, fairytales, fables, chemistry, bluffing, black magic, the abnormal, cheating, betrayal and hydration . . . just to name a few things. Not only is Venus in Pisces right now, but Neptune is in Pisces right now as well. Neptune is the higher octave of Venus, so we are really over the Moon in 'Love' and fairy tale right now.

So you can see, when you put "Love of" or phil- in front of any of these words, there will be an affinity for these things. Venus in Pisces can cause people to be so drunk in Love that they Love at all costs, which translates into unconditional Love. This can show up two ways 1) I Love you unconditionally and 2) I Love you unconditionally, so go ahead and do anything you want to hurt me and I will still be here Loving you. Venus in Pisces is absolutely hands down, unconditional and punch drunk Love. Venus in Pisces Loves even when it doesn't make sense or isn't healthy. It's unconditional.

Venus is exalted in the sign of Pisces, which means it is the second strongest placement for the planet. It's often looked as being a 'guest' in this house. Have you ever heard anyone say, "Mi casa, su casa." In Spanish this means, my house is your house. An exaltation is saying, "Welcome, take your shoes off and stay a while." Venus is definitely on a 'high' right now just like it is under the influence of cupid's arrow that is laced with an aphrodisiac. Hmmmmmm, what happens when Venus moves out of Pisces into Aries and this aphrodisiac wears off? Venus in Aries will be saying, "What about me! Love me!" I wouldn't get too wrapped up in punch drunk Love right now because it can turn out to be bittersweet. And I sure as heck would not be mixing alcohol with Love right now. Absolutely NOT! Chiron is also in Pisces for four more years. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to see that information. During this transit, if you cannot handle one glass of wine and stopping right there, then you don't need to be pouring the first glass to begin with during this transit.

The sign of Pisces incredibly sensitive in every sense of the word and because they are so sensitive then their sonar (intuition) is incredibly accurate. Pisces is sensitive to another person's plights and a suckerfish for a sob story. Since they are sensitive physically and emotionally, they are sensitive to alcohol and drugs. Again, watch the level of booze you put into your body because it will mess up your intuition and take you off your game. Not to mention put you further into a state of punch drunk Love. Pisces is also very benevolent, so this transit could make you over-benevolent and over-giving.

Venus in Pisces can produce some incredibly lonely feelings as well. Remember, Pisces rules all of those places where people are alone. So an individual could Love so much during this transit to the point of loneliness because the other person is unable match their affection. It can certainly lead to disappointment to say the least. While Venus in Pisces may be exalted, I find it nothing but a damn fairytale and punch drunk. Wake up folks, the Love pheromones are getting to you. Snap out of it! Stay alert!

One thing that will occur during this transit is some darn Good writing including spiritual, song and poetry writing because the mind is really diving deep and going behind the scenes to get in touch with deep seated emotions, especially while Venus and Chiron are also in Pisces. This is fantabulous writing energy for going out into the ethers without having to really smell it.

Venus in Pisces is squaring (challenging) your 4th house of home and family, roots, heritage, private life, father, land, property, residences, and domestic affairs.

This is a time where affections with the home and family are prominent. Somehow it is easier to ignore quality time with the home and family, thereby placing more attention on other cares of the day. This is a Good time to make known to your family that they are priorities in your Life and that they do matter to you above and beyond anything else that you may have going on. Draw yourself closer to your family and make deliberate and purposeful connections with each family member.

There may be a tendency to over-eat and over-cook during this time. You may also have a tendency to spend more money on the home in the line of furniture or other creature comforts that create the feeling of redecorating. Your new and improved focus on the family is similar to redecorating the family. The 4th house is naturally ruled by the nurturing aspects of the moon, meaning mother. It's a great time to use your own nurturing influences to influence the family, whether you are a man or woman. Scroll down to read your Mars Opportunity.

Check out the Mars Moving Through the Signs Calendar. Dates are listed from 1920 up until 2015.

First I will address the Mars in Libra and then the final few paragraphs will be how it pertains to your Sun Sign. It is important to undertand the energy of Mars and how it operates so that you can better understand how it will operate in your own Life.

Mars is the planet of assertion and drive. Mars is the testosterone in the chart. It will describe the degree of force that we go after what we want. Mars will tell us whether we are forceful and confrontational or if we prefer to sit back and watch. It will also reveal what motivates us and what desires drive us most powerfully. The house that Mars occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

Mars will remain in the sign of Libra for quite some time simply because it is going to go through a Retrograde period from March 1, 2014 until May 20, 2014. Mars usually remains in a Sun Sign for about 6 weeks but this time it will last 7-1/2 months. Having said that, Mars will remain in the sign of Libra until July 25, 2014.

Mars in Libra is in its 'Detriment'. The 'detrimental' placement is like a feisty child throwing a temper tantrum in the grocery store. Basically, it acts out inappropriately at the wrong time and wrong place. This is because Mars naturally rules Aries, which is Libra's opposite sign, so Mars is in its opposite natural placement. This Mars in Libra transit is going to be Good, great, bad and ugly throughout its transit in Libra.

This would really be a great transit most of the time if it didn't need so dang much approval from others. Mars by nature is aggressive and assertive, which is something that Libra is not (although they can be under certain circumstances) and that is once they have been revved up enough. It doesn't take much to rev up an Aries but once Libra gets going, they are relentless. Libra wants balance, harmony and to sing 'Kumbya' so much that they will compromise too much. This causes them to over-compromise, which then leads to imbalance, which is exactly what they didn't want in the first place. Arrrghhhh! If you are looking for cooperation during this aspect, it may be there sometimes and then completely disappear. During this Mars in Libra transit we will experience and opposition with Uranus in Aries on December 25, 2013 (remember, Mars naturally rules Aries) and it will also square Pluto in Capricorn on December 30, 2013. Toward the end of December 2013, Mars will be dealing a few blows . . blow by blow. BAM! Take that! What the freak! Things were going so well and then the last week of December 2013 came along. Honestly, I wouldn't be boozing it up this New Year's Eve. It would be best if everyone just took a chill pill and chillaxe on the couch.

Libra just wants to be in Love and wants everyone else to be in Love. Libra is very feminine and Mars is very masculine. This energy can show up two very different ways. It can look like the 'seemingly' beautiful, graceful and elegant woman who has a chip on her shoulder. When she turns around she's smoking a cigarette, cussing like a sailor and has a can of bear with cigarette ashes on top of the beer can. On the other hand, this Libra energy can boost the Mars energy with some grace and refinement. Remember, Mars is aggressive and it is also selfish as Aries is THE MOST selfish sign of the zodiac. Where Aries thinks of me, myself and I; Libra thinks we, us and our. Mars in Libra can bring some 'couple awareness' to an individual. Aries (Mars) has a tendency to say, "Me, me, me! Enough about me. What do you think of me?" Mars can actually be a little tamed under this Libra influence. It won't be without a few challenges when Uranus in Aries gets ahold of the energy and opposes or when Pluto in Capricorn squares it. Believe me, after 7-1/2 months with Mars in Libra, it will have to succumb to the harmonious energy and soften itself. Too much aggression makes others fight, stand back or just plain walk away. None are these are great choices but it is what we will be dealing with during this 7-1/2 months Mars in Libra stay, especially at the end of December 2013.

I can just see some high level conversations going on and then all of the sudden the energy shifts and arguments begin. This is some high heat and if you know this ahead of time, then you won't even engage in converation with difficult people or conversations with your mate that could lead to disaster. There is going to be a lot of moral chatter going on and what's so funny is that the people who shout the loudest are usually the ones who donate the least or volunteer the least. If you listen closely to what these individuals are saying, they may not really be concerned with what the subject matter is, except for the fact that the subject matter might impact them in some way and THAT my dear little mentators reveals the selfishness of Mars. It really wasn't about the subject matter at all, it was how it impact them. Keep in mind, the 'them' could be you. You could be one of 'them' that I am talking about here. OUCHY!

When Mars in Libra becomes afflicted (challenged) when it becomes aspected by the opposition of Uranus in Aries on December 25, 2013 or when it becomes aspected by the square of Pluto in Capricorn on December 30, 2013 there will likely be arguments, fights, disagreements and even separation of relationships. Folks, I'm telling you, this is very challenging and I would put the booze and partying on hold and have that quiet evening at home to celebrate New Year's 2014. Start off the year on the right foot instead of the wrong energy. Did I mention that Pluto is the higher octave of Mars? Yep, it sure is and this deals a double whammy of Mars energy to mix. It's like Mars and Pluto will be fighting with each other. With that kind of aggressive energy, who really wins? Seriously!

Mars is all about AGGRESSION and DRIVE! Mars in Libra is moving through your 11th house of friends, groups of people, social acquaintances, organizations, alliances, fraternities, memberships, money from the employer, finances of employer and stock exchanges. It is also about your hopes, wishes and dreams.

With such an aggressive planet moving through your 11th house, this is a great time to work in cooperation with others by working in groups, teams and organizations. You may have to put your own ego in check during this time because this is a learning experience and no one person knows everything all the time. You will get more accomplished right now if you work in cooperation with others. This means if you need help, then ask for it. If someone else needs help, do not wait to be asked for assistance. Volunteer to help before you are asked. Working as a team player will work in your favor during this time. Scroll down to read your Chiron Opportunity.

Chiron is Retrograde in Pisces from June 16, 2013 until November 19, 2013. This is when you will have to retrace your steps and get in touch with your own woundology. When you can source your own woundology, then it will be easier to understand others and assist them. The subject matter below in your 4th house is where you will be retracing your steps during this Retrograde period.

Chiron is all about discovering your WOUNDED HEALTH WITHIN! For all Sagittarian's this involves your 4th house of home, family, domestic affairs, the mother, land and the biological and psychological foundation. Chiron is an asteroid and is called, the wounded healer. Chiron, the Wounded Healer, represents our emotional and physical wounds. It reveals a part of us that is hurt, small and vulnerable. Chiron encourages us to heal our wounds, and then look beyond personal realms, to see the suffering of others, and to become teachers and healers. The house that Chiron occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

There is a thought that we create our own suffering because we continue to cling to material possessions, behaviors, beliefs and ideas that we need to release in order to move to our higher-self. Ahhhhhh . . read that sentence again for a deeper impact. Wherever you find Chiron in your Natal Chart, it represents where you suffer and how you can release your own suffering to move forward in Life.
