Rock your world in 2018! Your ruling planet Venus is one of the best connected and most powerful forces in the sky this year.
Venus is supercharged on New Year’s Day, and so are you. Having just conjoined pragmatic Saturn in Capricorn, Venus now conjoins the sun. Your goals and aspirations will not be denied. Make them big and noble.
Venus is also approaching Pluto in Capricorn. Don’t be reluctant to make a big change or upset the status quo if needed.
When the sun enters Taurus, Venus is already there. Surround yourself with beautiful thoughts in beautiful settings, don’t compromise, and don’t be rushed. Mother Nature is definitely on your side this year. In October, Venus goes retrograde in Scorpio and direct in Libra in November. Relationships get serious and benefit from extra attention.
Have success in the material world as well. Take a good, hard look at the world you’ve built around you. Keep what works well and what pleases best. Be more constructive and comfortable.
Stronger, Smarter, Better, Hotter… your 2018 Horoscope will guide you where you’ve never been!
Taurus was the second sign of the zodiac established among the ancient Mesopotamians – who knew it as the Bull of Heaven – because it was the constellation through which the sun rose on the vernal equinox at that time. Due to the precession of the equinox, it has since passed through the constellation Aries and into the constellation Pisces (hence our current era being known as the Age of Pisces). The Bull represents a strong-willed character with great perseverance and determination. In Egypt, Taurus was seen as the cow goddess Hathor. Hathor was the goddess of beauty, love, and happiness, and she represented all of the riches seen in cattle as the providers of nourishment. Roman astrologers considered Taurus ruled by Venus, the goddess of beauty, and Earth.
