Taurus Mom Horoscope: May 14 – May 20
Stuck in a material girl mindset, Taurus mamas? Hey, we can all get into Madonna-mode sometimes, and it's not always a bad thing. However, with Venus moving into retrograde (backward) motion through your second house of all things luxe this week, from now until June 27, you may want to reassess how you're spending your resources: your time, your talents, and (of course) your money. People often think retrogrades mean setbacks and problems, and yes, these can often arise during a retrograde phase; however, we prefer to think of retrograde phases as the perfect moments to head back to the drawing board and fill in any missing pieces that may have gone astray.
Take a look at your daily routines now, Bull: are you putting your all into a company or organization that's not giving you the fulfillment and satisfaction you deserve? And how about your budget: are you overspending just to outfit the kids (and yourself) in name brand gear that you and your husband can't afford? Simplify your everyday life now, and even when you're tempted to splurge on yet another dinner out or a new pair of shoes to impress your fellow playground goers, think: quality over quantity. A hundred dollars worth of organic produce and groceries from the market will carry you through the week...but a hundred dollars at the nicest restaurant in town? Just a meal, Taurus, just a meal.
As for your romantic life, privilege the sensual and the romantic now—even if every bone in your body is telling you things should be happening faster, better, more spontaneously, it's the slow-build that will do your relationship the most good. Whether you're a single mom on the dating scene or you've been married to your partner for fifteen years, think: steady as she goes. Instead of investing in a drawer full of sensual lingerie, why not just add a few romantic elements to the bedroom? Or, make that goodbye or good morning kiss a little lengthier than usual, and tag on a ten-second hug.
Sunday brings another wave of cosmic energy to your second house, thanks to the Gemini solar eclipse. Today could bring that financial breakthrough you and your family have been waiting for, Taurus! An opportunity could arise for you to add some additional moulah to the family's coffers, or a new job or promotion may present itself. Don't let too much time go by before you take advantage of Sunday's possibilities: events during a solar eclipse require clutch decision-making, so act fast.
