The Year Ahead 2024 – Taurus

As life continues to unfold several different energy patterns are influencing various degrees of the sign. Jupiter (growth and expansion) and Uranus (liberation and unexpected events) have been an influence at various points in 2023 and will continue during 2024. Jupiter was moving quite nicely through Taurus during 2023 from 21 May however from 15 September it went retrograde (backwards) which means those of you in the first half of the sign commenced a process of rethinking whatever decisions you made from May! As we enter 2024 Jupiter has now started moving forward and moves through Taurus until 1 June.

There is a rather unique astrological pattern with your Jupiter/Uranus throughout April which will impact those born from 10 May to 14 May. It is an element of luck! It can take you into unexpected yet positive new directions. Any new opportunities that come your way around this time may be well worth considering.

I expect when it comes to sudden or unexpected change of direction, you may not like to deviate from your plan. After all, making change is not your strong point!  So, I would like to suggest that you be open to exploring possibilities as you just never know.  These are great energies, and my comment still stands: you do not like change and can be rather stubborn, so please use this energy to move forward and not just replicate past patterns. Take the opportunity to move your life to a whole new level; you’ll be glad you did.

As your preference for experiencing life is through the senses, I would strongly suggest you celebrate your birthday with friends over a long lunch or dinner with delicious food and wine! As it is important to celebrate milestones in life, I believe, having a celebration makes a powerful statement on your birthday and helps set the tone for the upcoming year. As Venus makes personal contact with your Sun during May it’s a particularly nice time to connect with people you care about, to socialise, to connect and strengthen relationships.

From 10 June – 21 July, Mars (action & the urge to achieve) contacts all Taurus folk at various times. This represents the commencement of a new 22 – 24-month cycle so it’s a good time to think about what you would like to accomplish over the next two years. It’s like drafting a personal strategic plan based on reflection on your recent decisions and life direction along with the energies available to work with at the time of the Mars contact.

It is a slightly different story for those born between 19-22 of April, Pluto (transformation) is making a difficult aspect to your Sun. Aspects of your life that have not been working out will now come under the universe’s microscope. Whether you like it or not you will be forced to change. It is time to discard anything that is no longer required in your life and create space for a wiser self to emerge. This is not an overnight process, and it will continue throughout 2025. Pluto energy requires that you go deep and look at yourself at a soul level. You will feel as if you’re swimming through treacle and not making much progress.

The result is that physically you may feel tired, yet not be able to put your finger on the cause and you may find yourself not being able to focus as you normally would. During this time if there are cracks in relationships or situations in your life it is likely the issues will surface, and you may feel quite bewildered and possibly betrayed. The best thing to do is to put yourself in a position where you can be calm, peaceful, and contemplative without trying to accomplish too much.

Pluto will be in Aquarius until 2044, yes that is correct! It is a slow, long-haul transit which means it is very slow moving and will often make contact 3 to 5 times. You will be able to work more constructively to reach a new level of understanding, consciously making change most positively and productively possible. To understand how and when Pluto’s energy will impact you, you would need to have your birth horoscope constructed and could do so here.
