Written by Symbolic Living
|The Sun is in Taurus. Enjoy Nature!|
This week starts off with the Sun entering Taurus on Monday the 20th at 5:42 a.m. ET. This will encourage us to get more in touch with our physical reality and to experience the light on a more sensory level. It’s a fantastic time to connect with your body and the earth. Walks in nature, listening to the birds sing, smelling the flowers, watching the buds grow and feeling the earth under our feet are experiences we will become more conscious of as we experience this period.
The Sun in Taurus will help us to focus on what we want and what really matters. This is an earthy vibe and so it will naturally bring forward an emphasis on Pluto in Capricorn as well. It’s a great time to purge out all that you don’t need. Get rid of the junk that has been cluttering up your life and collecting over the winter. It’s time for spring cleaning to allow you to focus more on the more important things that you want and need in your life. It’s also a great time to shed light on your financial matters. Look at where you stand and consider what you’re really worth.
Saturn, an earthy planet, is now retrograde as well, so that encourages us to take another look at how we’re using our time. Rethink why you are spending time on what you have been. The time you spend, is spent. You can’t get it back. So take this time to consider how you prioritize using your life.
With the Moon in Gemini at the beginning of the week, it’s a great time to write down and talk about how you feel. Mercury rules Gemini, and is in Taurus now, so there is a natural connection of mind, body and emotions now. A nice walk in the park can clear your mind and help you get more in touch with honoring your feelings. Our feelings are there to tell us something. I often recommend yoga. It is an all in one package really, helping us to get that deeper connection to the body, mind and spirit raising our awareness of who we are and how we relate to the world. On a nice day this week, try doing a bit of yoga outside, even just a few basic poses, and see what realizations come up for you through the experience.
On Tuesday, Mercury and Jupiter are challenging us to think about our potential. Whatever doesn’t feel right in your life, this will be the time to explore how to find solutions. How can you find ways to be more grounded so you can express yourself more wholeheartedly and authentically. This is a period to slow down. Taurus likes to bring us back down to earth so we can ask ourselves questions that matter. What do you really want? What is your purpose? How are you expressing yourself self as someone who is living a meaningful, purposeful life?
As you come to the awareness of your life by asking such questions, Mars and Pluto come into harmony later in the day. This will give us the energy, drive and willpower to push forward and get excited about the possibilities in how we can transform our lives. Being able to see deep down to the heart of the matter, by asking ourselves those questions, will help us get rid of what no longer serves us, so we can use our energy on what really matters to us. This can lead to stability and empowerment. For some, this can mean feeling strong enough to put your foot down and do what’s right for yourself.
On Wednesday, it’s Earth Day. With the Sun in Taurus, we’re encouraged to honor the earth and respect nature. With Mercury in Taurus happily reaching out to Pluto in Capricorn on Wednesday, more of us will be inspired to speak up, share online and communicate our desire to make a positive impact. It’s a great day to be out and about having random run-ins and conversations that can inspire change towards a better world. This not only includes matters of the environment, but can also be geared towards political matters, and financial matters that affect our lives and the planet.
Mercury meets Mars in Taurus on Wednesday as well. The conversations and interactions we have, or the information we come across on our own, can passionately drive us to create those important changes in our own lives, and to share our points of view with others.
With Venus in Gemini and Jupiter in Leo feeling friendly on Wednesday, they symbolize how sharing love and abundance can bring blessings into our lives and to the world. Honoring the pleasure the world has to offer can inspire us to find ways to be good to the earth and each other.
The Moon enters Cancer on Thursday. It’s a good time to trust our instincts. With the Sun and Neptune in harmony with the Moon, it’s a great time to meditate under a tree, dance in the moonlight, and stare up to the stars and ponder the universe. Spending some me-time in the bath or shower is recommended. Clear your energy and channel some light into your chakras. It’s a great time to connect to your source, your creative ideas and add a bit of mysticism to your life. Dancing to spiritualized music can help you get in touch with your inner light.
When the Moon and Pluto are standing across the sky from one another on Friday, relationships can be the catalyst to the internal shifts we need. Again, purge whatever you don’t need in your life, and that includes emotions that are weighing you down. Get rid of the old baggage you’ve carried long enough. It could be a great time for intimacy where you allow your passions and vulnerabilities to tune you into your human qualities.
Saturday the Moon enters Leo. It’s a great day to add creative flair to any projects you have. Saturn retrograde in Sagittarius reaches out to the Moon on Saturday. It’s a great time to get yourself organized and work on that plan that allows you to use your time more wisely. Saturday is the quarter Moon, which means we’re half way to the Full Moon coming up next week in early May. It’s a good time to reassess how the week has gone, and ask yourself how much you’ve accomplished towards your goals since the New Moon in Aries on April 18th. Today is about making practical plans, but also ensuring that you’re having fun in the process.
Finally on Sunday, we have Venus and Uranus sharing positive energy. This is a day where you should feel inspired to be free. Be open to surprises in love and money. With the Moon and Jupiter starting off the day with a positive vibe, the day can be a lot of fun. It’s a great time for an adventure. The positive feelings can lead to innovative ideas and absolute brilliance. Enjoy it.
I hope you all have a wonderful, abundant week. Thank you for reading and sharing the love. Namaste.

How are you spending your time? Is it worth it? How can you change your daily routine so that you are living more in line with your purpose in life? Many Sagittarians are active in pursuit of living a wise, abundant and meaningful life. Now you are asked to slow down a bit so you can be sure to be doing what needs to be done. It’s a great time to make a plan that brings you down to reality. It’s great to have hope, but without the details and plan to keep you on track along the way, it’s easy to lose touch with the process. You do best this week when you are actively planning. Finances are certainly an area that would benefit from your attention now. Crunch those numbers.

You may be rethinking your position now and what really matters to you. Who are you in relation to the bigger picture? How can you use your talents and self-awareness to create a different world? As an earth sign, nature is important for many Capricorns, and so the environment is something to be passionate about. Now that spring is here, you’re encouraged to be outside in anticipation of the new blooms arriving. This will help you get your thoughts in order and will bring you joy. Your spiritual experiences in touch with nature, will help give you insight into your karmic path. You can make a difference in the world.

A yoga practice in the morning sunshine would be so good for you.
Pisces: You may come to a realization early in the week that you need to get your daily routine squared away. How you think about your day to day lifestyle and work ethic impacts how much you get to enjoy each day or not.
