You can learn a lot this year if you pay attention, Taurus. Your lovely ruler Venus, love and money goddess extraordinaire, begins her year retrograde and partnered with fellow earth sign serious and ambitious Capricorn. This inward-seeking energy sends you on an upwardly mobile quest right away, and you’ll be in search of the ideal relationship and a fat bank account. Of course, as a patient Bull, you know that these things take time, but if you don’t take the first step you’ll never get there, and that’s where the Goat’s focused nature—even in retrograde—gives you the push you need to eventually get to the top of that mountain in 2022. Pay close attention to recurring themes and people who reappear in your life after being absent for a while. When the past comes knocking now, it’s best to listen.
You celebrate your solar return between mid-April and the end of May, Taurus, and the celebration will be big this year! You have a lot to look forward to during your birthday month, including a solar eclipse on April 30 that will bring a burst of energy and enthusiasm to your life. This will add to the celebratory feeling you’re already experiencing and is a kickoff to the interesting new things on the horizon. Look forward to the increased confidence that comes with this solar event that can help elevate your goals to the next level.
Remember that Uranus, the planet of rebellion and experimentation, is continuing its journey through your steady sign all year, which challenges you to be less inhibited and more open-minded. You don’t always accept or enjoy the sudden changes that Uranus adores, so this partnership definitely isn’t your favorite. However, going through unwanted changes in various areas of your life causes you to grow and reach a higher self-awareness that probably wouldn’t have happened otherwise, and growth of any kind is never a bad thing.
