Taurus Decan 1~ April 20 to 30 2017. The new weekly horoscope runs as an Egyptian week, ie 10 days. It will start as the Sun moves into a new decan and looks at what fixed stars it hits during the decanate week. The star interpretations are written for those born with their Sun on that degree, but the general mood of the day will carry that flavour too. The Sun in Taurus decan 1 makes gifted orators who fight their battles with words. At this time, supreme propaganda is brought to the fore, and the pen really is mightier than the sword. Taurus decan 1 likes dictating so they can make great teachers, but they can also be dictators in the political arena too. At this time then, as this is a bestial sign, directing styles might lack grace or tact, but expression is frank and to the point.

Taurus 0º 24’ ~ Mirach in the girdle of Andromeda. 2.4*
Sun on Mirach “Trouble through opposite sex, disappointments in expectations but otherwise favorable.”  Mirach is found in the girdle of Andromeda. It is an extremely fortunate star “portending renown and good luck in matrimony.”  Andromeda had pay for her mother Cassiopeia’s boastful tongue by being chained to a rock as a sacrifice. This was to appease Neptune offence at Cassiopeia’s claim her daughter was more beautiful than any of Neptune’s sea nymphs. It all ends well as Andromeda is rescued by brave Perseus whom she marries. This is probably why there is fortune here, due to Andromeda’s lucky escape and the fact she bags a courageous, alpha-male husband. Robson echoes the myth saying Mirach “gives personal beauty, a brilliant mind, a love of home, great devotion, beneficence, forgiveness, love, overcoming by kindness, renown, and good fortune in marriage.” The Ebertins emphasise a creative side saying Mirach endows “Many interests, tendency to inspiration and medium-ship as a base for artistic creations, altruism, cheerfulness, happiness, love of company. These people have a stimulating effect on others, they make friends easily and are helped on in life by others.” 
Taurus 1º 31?~ Mira in the neck of Cetus the Sea Monster. 3.0
Mirais a gorgeous deep garnet star in the neck of the not so pretty sea monster. Mira however comes from the Latin Mirus which mean wonderful and someone to be admired. As lovely as that all sounds, the interpretations for Mira are mixed depending to which planet it is configured; “Its nature corresponds to Saturn and Jupiter. Connected well and with a well-placed Saturn and linked up well otherwise, this will mean prudence, perseverance, versatility, a progressive spirit and endurance in solving difficult problems. This star in unhelpful connections, will bring as results failures, fiascoes, enmity..”.
Taurus 2º 38’ ~ Angetenar in the Eridanus on the bend of the river. 4.8
Taurus 2º 42? ~ Tyl in Draco the Dragon. 4.0
Angetenar in the bend in the river near Fornax. The constellation of Eridanus as a whole “gives a love of knowledge and science, much travel and many changes, a position of authority” . Very close by we also have Tyl in Draco the dragon, interestingly the Chinese gave it the name ‘Kin Yy’ which means goldfish. Draco is a constellation very far up in the poles and its influence in this decan is faint, but I thought it was worth mentioning since we have another “gold fish” further on in the decan in the actual constellation Dorado.
