‘Choir, Angels of Paradise, from the Beethovenfries’ (which I read as ‘Beethoven oven fries’–is that wrong of me?) Beethoven Frieze, 1902 By Gustav Klimt {{PD}}

We encounter surprising beauty today, in the form of spontaneous, original, even genius thoughts and inventive plans, in surprising abundance of one kind or another, in the surprising way that beauty makes us want to create change or transform ourselves or our world, and in the surprising way the past acts as a guide for the now. Enjoy what’s revealed, what you see–it’s all for your benefit. Dangers include overeating or over spending (out of sheer exuberance and appreciation for life, so maybe that’s a good indulgence, after all), and massive generosity with Love or Money (just make sure it’s with an individual or entity you feel truly deserving–we don’t want any Friday morning regrets). Too, we may be surprised to find our current direction doesn’t actually serve our ambitions–but that’s okay–not everything we do has to tie into our wants or lead us closer to a goal. Nostalgia is a possibility, as is consideration of trying to roll back the clock–just be aware that’s not the direction of time’s arrow, and that the word ‘nostalgia’ actually means, ‘pain of the past’–and nobody wants to visit a painful scenario, especially if the pain comes from missing, or believing we should reconstitute, what was.

For those born with the Sun at 19 Taurus. Check your natal chart for the correct Sun degree (you may want to read both the degree number and the one that follows, if you have minutes on your Sun position–together these offer a more complete picture of your year ahead). You are set this year to make amazing strides, dear Taurus, with your ability to transform the reality picture–yes, you really are that powerful, from your center all the way out to your surroundings–and much of what results will heal difficult situations through a growing emotional clarity and understanding. What works best for you? Taking lessons from your past. What will you have to adjust to? Goals, new ones or shifting/ morphing ones, as your emotional perceptions will quite naturally modify what you want. Action, and emotional action in particular, will lead to gain, and use the ideals driven by the creative impulse for best, and most true to your inner you, results.
