Monthly Gossip for the Cosmos

By Linda Merlino

Taurus loves the best of everything. Material goods, anything tangible suits Taurus well. Venus rules Taurus, it is of the element, earth. Taurus folk often have a green thumb, and their touch, overall, is magic. This sign likes physical contact and uses the five senses to make decisions and navigate the planet. In close encounters, Taurus will discover ways to be close, to always have some part of him or her next to you.

Notice how Taurus sniffs the air. Odors are essential to Taurus's comfort level. Expensive perfume (not toilet water), fine food cooking, fresh garden flowers and money are among this sign's favorite smells. Not one to acclimate to change easily, Taurus gravitates to the familiar. Variety is not the spice of life to this earth sign. The usual calm, unruffled demeanor of a Taurus can be completely bullish when confronted with change.

Like the metaphor of the daisy eating bull in a field, Taurus, when angered, will paw the ground, flare his or her nostrils, snort, drops his or her head, and charge. The best advice for these times is to step aside waving a red cape, or retreat until the bull becomes passive.

Taurus, when enraged, tends to throw things. Please put fine crystal and china under lock and key. Fortunately Taurus seldom has an episode. Most often, Taurus is sitting in his or her favorite chair, watching his or her favorite TV show and eating dessert, or is out spending money.

If you love a Taurus, be generous. Keep in mind that Taurus only pretends he or she doesn't care about the material world. Capricorn and Virgo are right up there as well. Your Taurus partner has a very sensual side. Keep a supply of candles, items for massage and long baths. Remember to stay away from budget anything. If you follow this advice your Taurus lover will keep you warm when you are cold and your tummy full of rich delicacies.

SKY WATCH: The planet Mercury is going on to the dance floor. The backward waltz begins on May 27th. Remember the shadow of this three week period begins May 12th. The actual three week window is May 27- June 19. The shadow thing follows from June 20th until July 4rth. Over all about six weeks of double talk.

Aries (March 21-April 20) Aries may seek opportunities close to home. Siblings and young relatives can be helpful. Community endeavors are a source of pride. Communicate with those nearby. Mercury will go backward and if you do not resolve issues now, you will have to in May. Cosmic Advice: You may have some spirited feelings with family members. Do not linger on the negative. Opportunities will arrive after the 10th which will allow you to reap rewards or be the witness to rewards for children. Taking a risk may be the right thing to do.

Taurus (April 21-May 20) Taurus has the look of love. Normally a sign of beauty and natural good looks, Taurus has the planet Venus in its sign this month. Love is loyal and sensual. Love is kind and generous. Love is materialistic and bountiful. Cosmic Advice: The opportunities that have been surrounding you may be finishing up by the 10th. Take note of that time. Following the good stuff will be a short period of challenge. Your energy may be zapped at home doing chores that require a good attitude and maybe some entertaining.

Gemini (May 21-June 21) Gemini can speak well through the month. Even though backward Mercury begins its slow waltz, Gemini will still remain fluent when others are tongue tied. Speak up now, say what you must, later your words can get misunderstood or may have to be repeated. Cosmic Advice: Lovers are kept under wraps. You do not want to share your resources or your secrets. You may want your lover all to yourself.

Cancer (June 22-July 22) Cancer has been doing non-stop. For so long you were nearly paralyzed by circumstance. That feeling has passed. After the 10th your resources that are your own, your self-esteem and all of that will require you to put some time into them. Money that you make will be part of what you are working to manage. Cosmic Advice: Friends are your guardian angels, someone younger, perhaps male is in the wings. You love communicating with friends, women friends are the best.

Leo (July 23-August 22) Leo feels free at last. For months energy has been suppressed, you feel like the gates have opened. This will manifest after the 10th. Allow yourself time to recover from isolation, then go out and slay some dragons. Rely on friends, younger than yourself to help you along. The challenge will come when faced with your professional peers. This is not as difficult as it may seem. Use your charm. Cosmic Advice: You may feel constraints to your resources. This is not as grim as it sounds. Saving for the future, retirement or just curbing spending are all good things.

Virgo (August 23-September 22) Virgo will have to deal with contained energy after the 10th. You have been getting out and interacting with friends and groups, but you might find yourself less involved after the 10th. This is just a time to pull in your wings. Be patient. You are challenged among your peers by communication. You have created a code of ethics you must live by and all these rules may be effecting your profession. Cosmic advice: The travel bug has hit hard. You have the resources, why not pick up and go? You won't be missed at work.

Libra (September 23-October 22) Libra is challenged in his or her professional world. The action of your peers has worked you over in the past several months. After the 10th the energy will shift. You may find your relationship with group members is volatile and that people you deal with are over-dramatic. Cosmic Advice: Money from other sources is emphasized. Someone may pay you back or ask you for money.

Scorpio (October 23 - Nov 21) Scorpio may find the best way to assuage any feeling of competition in your chosen profession is to travel. Work related travel is on the menu. Partnerships are all about money and who buys what? Cosmic Advice: The way to deal with other people's resources is to talk with them first. This may be where you find conversation leans this month.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21) Sagittarius should use this month to communicate in a relationship. Try to get yourself understood, otherwise all will be repeated at the end of the month. Money is something you know about instinctively. Day-to-day stuff is all about finances. Watch too, what you eat. Keep sweets to a minimum. Cosmic Advice: Travel is by far the best use of your energy this month. Go someplace where the sun shines and life is good.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19) Capricorn may feel challenged in a relationship after the 10th but things will shift and you will focus more on who does what, and responsibility with a partner. Discussion asks you to take a chance, to get what you deserve. Rewards are possible. Cosmic Advice: Being honest is what interests you but others may not want to listen. Try to make your point early in the month or you will have to repeat what you said.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 19) Aquarius takes their work home and this can cause some issues after the 10th. Maybe you should reconsider doing this to avoid argument. The challenge is how to keep peace at home with all that is going on. Cosmic Advice: Your best advisors are children and lovers.

Pisces (Feb 20-March 20) Pisces has been taking many risks and all has not been easy but nonetheless satisfying. Your energy will go from how do I take care of things to how can I take care of others. Cosmic Advice: Your challenge is in communicating with family. They may not understand your dilemma. Cosmic Advice: Opportunities exists close to home. There is money available, just ask for it.
