Your ruler, lovely Venus, doesn’t go through any retrograde periods in 2019, but does that mean clear sailing for you all year? It’s doubtful, Taurus, but you might get a break in the dominant areas of your life that she rules: love and money. One transit to look forward to is a Venus-Jupiter conjunction in Sagittarius at the end of January (and again at the end of November), especially for its easygoing energy. Everything seems to be just a little easier now, which is kind of nice.
A four-month-long Jupiter retrograde cycle starting in early April will help give you much-needed time for philosophical reflection and spiritual introspection. Confronting your darker behaviors, instincts, and habits isn’t easy, but the chance for growth and transformation is enormous if you do it.
There’s a new moon in your sign at the start of May that will help launch new relationships and projects if you find a way to use its powerful potential. Anything you instigate now should be successful if you see it through. Delegating is always an option, but you’re better off at least supervising the details as things progress.
Uranus enters your earthy sign in the beginning of March and turns retrograde in August. This isn’t the easiest pairing because Uranus likes change and you like things to stay the same. Can you reach a middle ground? Yes, but you’ll have to be willing to keep a much more open mind than usual. The Jupiter retrograde welcomes introspection and the opportunity to shift your energy inward, so take full advantage of your downtime.
