Taurus Mom Horoscope: April 9 – April 15
It’s time to get back to the basics, Taurus mamas, and by the basics, we mean YOU. Powerhouse Pluto turns retrograde (backward) in your ninth house of travel, education, and wisdom on Tuesday, and from now until September 18, it’s pushing you to slow down, regroup, and maybe even dig a little deeper. Are you on the cusp of starting a home business or already entrenched in the entrepreneurial process of running one? This retrograde phase could put you back in touch with all those feelings you’ve tried to ignore: fear of the unknown or of failure, perhaps, or anxiety about taking your product or idea to a larger audience. Before you invest another huge chunk of money and time into this project, Pluto begs, pleads, and downright FORCES you to take another look at the emotional underpinnings of your efforts.
Many Taurus moms could have education on the brain—and not just their kids’ report cards, but also their own pursuit of higher learning. Before you register for a continuing education program at the local college or decide to finally get that Masters or PhD needed to ascend to the next pay grade or reenter the workforce, audit a class or sign up for just one semester. Before you jump in whole hog, it’s important to know whether this is truly the area of study you want to pursue, or whether there’s another learning opportunity that’s a better fit.
Where does exercise play into your life’s equation, or is it merely something you do only when you have a spare hour? Instead of joining yet another expensive gym, make a habit of getting out into the great outdoors: find some great walking trails in your ‘hood, and fill your MP3 player with inspiring, and maybe even spiritual, audio books and podcasts. One doesn’t have to go to a yoga studio to find inner peace, Taurus, especially when it’s so important to expand your perspective…not just worry how your butt looks in those yoga pants.
Another important planetary event this week: planet Mars’s forward movement into Virgo, your fifth house of passion, romance, and creativity. Since January 23, a creative project you were working on might have faced some setbacks, or you may have made a few romantic missteps. From now until July 3, your mojo returns, and you’re ready to take love (and all things artistic) on in a brand new way. Just like you never compromise on your wardrobe, never (and we mean never) compromise in your relationship or your romantic choices. You deserve the best.
