Your Taurus Horoscope for January 2019 has the Sun is in its joy, in your sector of foreign cultures and spirituality. Why wouldn’t it be joyous, for the Sun here inspires you to push yourself through boundaries and go further than you normally would. Travel broadens the mind and one can only reach its higher self by having room to grow. This wanderlust lasts until January 20 when it’s back to work with a vengeance. You should be revitalised and fully charged up to get the benefits from the spotlight now being on your status in the world and career. It’s time to remind people who you are.
Take this time to get out of your parochial box and speak to different types of people from diverse social backgrounds. This will help give you a different perspective on the world. New horizons beckon and give fresh vistas on your life. This is the month to get metaphysical as the Sun in this sector of the chart questions dogma and shines it’s light on dimensions you might have been previously blind to. You may literally make friends with a foreigner or connect with a spiritual guru type mentor at this time.
Taurus Monthly Horoscope 2019 ~ Eclipse Special
The Solar Eclipse January 6 falls in your 9th house. An eclipse in your house of philosophy could trigger a crisis in morals and ethics. You will be prompted to address your life code and the standards you live by. Events force you to question the beliefs you grew up with and send you on a quest for wisdom and truth. This search could prompt you to start an education course that at the same time promotes cultural expansion, self awareness and personal growth.
The study is not simply about gaining qualifications to further your career (Though this is a pleasant side effect.), but rather it’s about something intangible that alters your beliefs and shifts you out of your programmed assumptions about religion and spirituality.
The Lunar Eclipse January 21 falls in your 4th house. Your career circumstances have a great effect on your place of residence for the next 3 months. There could be some unexpected development at work that causes you to move home or just spend more time in it than you usually do. This is much more likely if the Lunar eclipse falls very close to your IC or aspects the ruler of house 4.
Whether you feel this eclipse strongly or not, it effects one of the foundational houses in your birth chart. Any changes that you make to your home will have a domino effect on the rest of your life. For example, you might decide to redecorate your bedroom, making it far more relaxing and sensual.
Taurus Love & Money For January 2019
Taurus Career Horoscope
Mercury travels through your 9th house from January 5 to 23. If you are an employee you might be sent abroad in connection with your work at this time. Generally, though, you might find you are doing more business with long distance clients than local ones. Meetings might more commonly be held on Skype than in person, or you might get foreign visitors to the office. Whatever the case, work certainly has a foreign flavour at this time.
It’s only when one travels to a totally different environment that we realise how small our problems might be in the greater scheme of things. Any recent work stresses seem much smaller now and ridiculously petty. Even if you haven’t had the chance to escape the rat race, you could just by chance pick up the right book or see the right film that helps you put everything back in perspective.
Taurus Love Horoscope
Venus enters your 8th house on January 7. Be careful who you let under your skin while Venus is in your taboo zone. You might find yourself obsessing over a person for months afterwards if you become sexually bonded with them. Think carefully whether you really want to put yourself through those intense, gut-wrenching emotions before you enter the underworld. It could be quite a struggle to get back up into the sunlight again. On the other hand, sometimes, this is just what you need to rid yourself of deep down toxins that are really resistant to removal. Sometimes the body needs to be shocked into the healing crisis that is needed.
These horoscopes are most accurate when read for your ascendant, but if you have your Sun plus a stellium (2 or more planets) in this sign then you will find that these horoscopes will ring true for your Sun also. All mainstream horoscopes are written using solar houses, which, in others words, is writing for your ascendant. However, the majority of astrologers won’t tell you that because they realise most of their readers will not know their ascendant. If you do not know your ascendant please use this free chart maker to find it. Once you have done that you can also read more about your rising decan and star too! It is the most personal point of your chart and the only one (Along with your ruling planet) that really describes you personally and your incarnation for this lifetime. Please read my The Zodiac Decans ~ Astrological Use & History post for greater understanding in using the decans in general.
THE TAURUS INCARNATION
Ascendant Taurus 1
Mirach 0º (As Heliacal rising star) “Using rapport and consensus as a personal life philosophy. Believing that the increasing beauty or harmony in one’s world leads to greater fulfilment for all concerned. Enjoying a sensual life”  Hamal 9º (As Heliacal rising star) “ A personal philosophy of action rather than words, to automatically seek a physical solution to all problems, a lifestyle where one is willing to work hard to achieve one’s dreams” 
The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decans energy since no planets will colour its expression. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so the influences above will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others. With Taurus decan 1 the raging and ravenous mouth behavior will be most notable in love relationships. It certainly is passionate, and at the very basic level a superb kisser, when they stop talking that is.. and, I would imagine *ahem* oral anything is well starred. Interestingly Bernadette Brady gives the example of Poppy King the cosmetic entrepreneur whose business grew from her idea of a better lipstick. So there’s that mouth again.
A glance at the fixed stars list reveals a girdle and a breast, so I think nobody sums up this placement better than curvy TV chef Nigella Lawson. Nigella is famous for her sensual presenting and is often parodied with close-ups of her lips as she samples her recipe while also zooming in on her ample bosom as she stirs yet another cream-laden cake mix. Nigella’s marriage to advertising mogul Charles Saatchi made the papers when he was seen grabbing her throat while dining out. Of course, Queen Cassiopeia was also punished for “mouthing off”.
It seems there is a certain amount of punishment here for just being too beautiful or too clever or both. Sometimes it can be from partners or other times, like in the case of Tesla or Rushdie it can come from “open enemies.” My feeling is that as much as these folk can present Brady’s “beauty or harmony” out to the world, and even be very successful, they still need to be aware of stirring up envious attacks and slander. Unfortunately, Taurus decan 1 often feels that they have to play down their talents if they are involved with a very insecure partner, at other times though it might actually be that they are acting too vain!
ASCENDANT TAURUS 1 Examples: Nikola Tesla, Charles Manson, Eva Peron, Robert Kennedy, Mary Queen of Scots, Helmut Kohl, Ulysses S Grant, Salman Rushdie, Boy George, Sheryl Crow, Marianne Faithfull, Suzi Quatro, Gary Barlow, Dave Gahan, Snoop Dogg, Liza Minnelli, Donatella Versace, Rowan Atkinson, Nigella Lawson, Sigourney Weaver, Claudia Cardinale, Dakota Fanning, Joan Sutherland, Vladimir Nabokov, David Letterman, Angela Davis, Andrew Cunanan, Rodney King, Maurice Utrillo, Lyle Menendez, Louise Brown, Amelia Earhart, Serena Williams.
Ascendant Taurus 2
Menkar 14º ~ “Legacies and inheritances attended by much evil.” (As Heliacal Rising star) “The nihilist, or a person who goes with the flow. To be gullible, or empathic to the unexpressed feelings around one. To have one’s actions influence many.” 
The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decan’s energy since no planets will colour its expression. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so the influences above will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others. With Taurus decan 2 the stage mother and statesmen behavior will be most notable in love relationships.
It will be very hard for these folk not to play the smothering parent with their beloved. As you can see from the celebrity examples, there does show some who have been touched by the unfortunate or even so-called ‘evil’ aspects of this decan, I’m thinking that there may be some inherited ancestral karma as well as the simple material inheritance that comes with the star Menkar.
The problem may just be the subject takes on too much of other peoples burdens and woes, if they absorb too much of other peoples negativity then I think that is how they can end up attracting the misfortune associated with the stars here. This is the Virgo decan of Taurus, therefore there can be a tendency to become everyone’s nursemaid. But since this decan is so stoic and has so much stamina, people just assume these folk can manage perfectly well.
The archetype of the matron or super-nanny fits well here, but they are certainly not pushovers or doormats because they really do love to take care and organise people. The problem is Ascendant Taurus 2 can relish a little too much in being so indispensable in a person’s life. These subjects can deliberately shoulder the weight of two in a relationship so that the partners own muscles wither away, making that partner even more dependent. Ascendant Taurus 2 must consciously work to pull themselves out of being their partner’s crutch, even if they are so darn good at it.
ASCENDANT TAURUS 2 Examples: Martin Luther-King, George Washington, George Lucas, Pedro Almodóvar, Cate Blanchett, Vivian Leigh, Mia Farrow, Joe Pesci, Elle McPherson, Humphrey Bogart, Steve Marriott, Mariah Carey, Queen Latifah, Antonio Salieri, Little Richard, Miriam Stoppard, Gloria Vanderbilt, Dorothy Parker, Barry Sheen, Angela Davis, Dodi Fayed, Ian Brady, Harold Shipman.
Ascendant Taurus 3
Capulus 24º (Heliacal Rising Star.) ~ “To have a personal motto ‘actions speak louder than words’. To have a strong desire to achieve one’s goals. A life filled with an unyielding determination to fulfill one’s passion” 
Algol 26º (Heliacal Rising Star) ~ ” To take the path of intensity and drama, to follow the road that has the most passion, to seek strong relationships as a way of life.” 
The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decan’s energy since no planets will colour its expression. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so the influences above will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others. With Taurus decan 3 the artistic alchemy will be most notable in love relationships. This means their lover will have to be their inspiring muse. They want a love that transforms their lives truly madly and deeply just like the film (Sometimes they can fall in love with an actual ghost.). AC Taurus 3 is not afraid to jump into the most unsuitable relationship because they figure that a bit of suffering is so good for the soul. For them, it really doesn’t feel like true love unless your heart is bleeding all over the kitchen floor. It doesn’t matter how many times these folk are wounded in love affairs, they get up again and again and again. They are now so resilient they can take anything, but they have to watch that they don’t keep repeating the same abusive relationship with different partners. If AC Taurus 3 are not careful they can make a fine art out of masochism, but it would be far better to turn the masochism into an actual piece of fine art, and many actually do!
