It’s May already, and the year is well underway, but the best is still to come.
Are you married to or dating a Taurus man, and are you feeling the winds of change blowing? Have you noticed that his behavior is a little bit different? Are you wondering exactly what is next in your relationship?
Well, I’m really pleased to guide you through May as it’s a momentous month in terms of the planetary aspects, as there are so many significant and highly explosive, opportunity-rich conjunctions and squares taking place.
This could be one of the most important months for Taurus man in a long, long time, and that is because Uranus is the conjunct sun in Taurus, and Jupiter, the planet of expansion, opportunity and publicity enters Taurus.
Venus enters Cancer trine Saturn (8th May)
This represents quite a romantic phase, so if you are dating Taurus guy, he’s more likely to wine and dine you and be attentive. He’s affectionate, he enjoys romantic conversation and it’s a fantastic time to be going to the movies or on a short cultural trip away.
He’s quite carefree at this time, he wants to put his worries on the back burner. This is a time when he will definitely procrastinate, so if you are married, you may not be able to engage him on any particularly serious subject because he is more interested in the fun side of life.
Sun Conjunct Uranus in Taurus (9th May)
Now, this particular conjunction can yield some surprising results, it’s very powerful because it stimulates Uranus in Taurus, which indicates a time of renewal, change and new perspectives for Taurus man.
As you’ve heard me say in previous horoscopes, Taurus man is one of the most stubborn and change-resistant of all the signs, and so if there’s ever a time when he’s going to be more open to and receptive to powerful and long-ranging changes to his/your life, it’s when Uranus is in Taurus, especially when Uranus is activated by the Sun.
Thus you may find that he is rather restless and acting out of character, in some cases, he appears like he’s embroiled in a mid-life crisis, but there’s nothing to worry about because overall, he’s entering a much more flexible, proactive frame of mind and this can help him to better understand himself and deal with the world.
Mercury direct in Taurus Sextile Saturn (15th May)
While it’s fantastic that Mercury is now direct because it helps improve communications, facilitates travel and generally brings more organization to life, it’s important for him to be patient. Encourage him not to expect overnight results, as even though he’s working hard, it can be difficult to achieve the outcomes that he wants. So encourage him to stay the pace, to be patient and to make sure he pays attention to detail.
As you know, Taurus are usually quite determined, and they do finish what they start; however, this month he can be more lackadaisical because he’s that much more impatient.
So when it comes to important dates or deadlines, they may slip his mind, so do remember to keep track of schedules, diary dates, the car keys or the bills because he could be a little bit scatty when it comes to these. Basically, he’s doing a great impression of the absent-minded professor this month, so don’t assume he’s got all bases covered.
Jupiter enters Taurus (17th May)
This is a very noteworthy transit because it only happens once every 12 years, and every time it happens, it’s a remarkable period for renewal, personal growth and achieving more fulfillment.
This is a fabulous time for a significant trip away, especially if it’s to somewhere totally new to you both. Travel can be a superb way to put the past behind you, recharge your health and start with a fresh slate.
So this is an excellent time for Taurus guy to develop a better attitude, a fresh approach to life or to improve his relationships. He can improve his health, so encourage him to be holistic in the way he approaches everything because the key right now is to understand that everything is linked: his emotional well-being, diet fitness and love life are all linked and so when one is going well, it tends to have a domino effect on the others.
Alternatively, if there’s far too much focus on one at the expense of others, there can be problems. It’s all about balance.
Mars in Cancer Square Jupiter (21st May)
This is an action-packed week and it’s very important for you to encourage him in terms of his work goals. He may be very busy with promotions, sales, or even traveling in connection with work. He’s likely to want to travel with you, his partner, and so this can be an ideal time to mix business with pleasure.
While Mars is Square Jupiter, he tends to exaggerate everything and the emotions which he doesn’t usually express can come to the surface quite unexpectedly.
Theme of the month: The theme is that the only way is up, and there’s no reverse gear. So it’s an amazing time for change, creativity and going for interesting opportunities. It’s time for the deep end, not the paddling pool, and so Taurus guy shouldn’t be conservative or shy away from challenges.
Magic Phrase: “And how many years can some people exist
Before they’re allowed to be free?
Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn’t see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind, the answers is blowing in the wind.”
Magic Text: “This could be the best time of our lives; let’s not look back.”
Do: Do encourage him to seize the day, but at the same time, he should be patient because although this is a time of action, it’s also a time of experimentation where results aren’t guaranteed as he’s entering uncharted territory.
Avoid: Don’t be critical or a Debbie Downer, enjoy his adventurous spirit and allow it to inspire positive changes in the relationship. Don’t be his handbrake rather be his steering wheel.
Week 1 – A land called fantasy
During the first week of the month, his behavior can be particularly erratic and confusing. He may be quite touchy and sensitive, and you have to be quite patient and compassionate with him. The best way to approach him is to be tender, and loving and not to push his buttons or introduce conversations about very mundane or stressful subjects.
He tends to want to escape into a fantasy world, so if you want to reach him you’ve got to do it when he’s feeling relaxed. The best way to communicate with him is to put on the kind of music or movies which lift his spirits and get him into a tranquil frame of mind, otherwise, it can be a little bit difficult to get on a level with him because he’s just a little bit vague, evasive and he may give off an air of aloofness.
If necessary, just give him space, no pressure, no interrogations , just leave him be and offer to talk when he’s ready.
Week 2 – Bin the old
It’s very important for you to encourage him not to hold himself back and to bin old attitudes or ideas about limitations. Help encourage him to be purposeful but not to be heavily disciplined because it’s important in May for him to have a fleet-footed, highly dynamic approach to life. If you are a person who is a strong leader, and who enjoys adventure, that’s fantastic because you can help bring those qualities to the fore in him.
In terms of you and Taurus guy, this could be a breakthrough time for you as a couple, where you both start seeing yourselves and your goals with a lot more clarity. Don’t dither; start taking steps that can really get your life moving again, especially if you have felt that you were in the doldrums.
Week 3 – Dating Success
This is a fantastic time to meet a Taurus guy, so if you’re dating him or have your eye on him, he’s likely to be putting his best foot forward. He is projecting in a positive way and is full of romantic eloquence, however, he does tend to exaggerate, so try not to get carried away in the relationship, because what you see is not necessary a true reflection of how he always is.
He’s displaying some of his most amorous, outgoing and adventure-seeking traits, but there may be a period where he settles down and he’s not quite able to sustain that level, so it’s important to know that he’s behaving a little bit out of character now, and while that can help relationships to develop quickly, it can create false expectations.
Week 4 – Let’s Talk about Money
During this week, it’s very important for you both to be cautious with money. Try to stick to budgets and avoid putting yourself in situations where you guys are likely to impulse spend.
Give him a lot of encouragement when it comes to his work and deadlines because he may feel a little bit discouraged. He may not get the results or the appreciation that he feels he deserves, so it’s very important to show him that you believe in him, are in his corner and that you’re his biggest supporter.
What he wants this week are clear indications of loyalty, so don’t do anything that could make him question your loyalty or your fidelity because he’s quite likely to be suspicious right now.
Show him that he is your one and only, and you think he’s great!
This is not a good time to judge events on past standards or anticipate that events will work out as they have in the past. It’s almost like the record has been changed, your lives are now playing a whole new tune, and everything is going to be different from now on forwards. This is very exciting indeed and will create a sense of renewal, excitement but also tension in your lives.
For many of you, particularly the fire signs, who will tend to find Taurus man quite conservative or set in their ways, this is quite a remarkable time where you will be really pleased with some of the changes, new ideas and initiatives that he is coming up with.
Wishing you love and luck with your Taurus Man,
