"Slow down, you're moving too fast" isn't just a groovy song lyric from the sixties, Taurus – it's basically your mantra. And this month you can really take it to heart, because with your ruler Venus in retrograde from the 4th – you'll simply have no choice in the matter. Your life – especially your love life – might feel like it's on pause for a bit – if only to get you to do some serious self-reflection. Expect your exes to appear in parade formation – they're all coming back, at least in your head. The truth at the core of any return performances is that this is about you – your needs, desires, and deep attractions. Hone in on these insights and remember what you discover – you'll need them for your current and future relationships. There's a lovely, sweet Full Moon on the 12th, which can help to offset any romantic blunders brought about by Venus Retrograde. Gut-honesty is necessary now, without harsh criticism. About a week later spring arrives in all its newly budding glory – celebrate its start on the 20th by investing in your imagination – because during the next month your creativity is extra rich. Then use the New Moon (on the 27th) to write a list of everything you want to heal and rebuild over the next six months. Whether or not you're currently in therapy, this lunation feels like one of the deepest sessions you've had a in a long time.

Buckle your seatbelt, Taurus, because eclipse season returns this month. Thrills, chills and pas-sion are in charge after your ruler Venus moves into fiery Aries on the 3rd. You might notice that you feel more assertive than usual; totally let yourself go there. But tone it down just a notch as you approach the intense Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse on the 10th – because drama is sky-high. This eclipse hits your house of home, family, and domestic affairs, and this can cause some conflicts with the people your closest to. You can keep the out-of-control clashes to a minimum by deal-ing with feelings head-on, instead of letting them fester. Note: the weekend before Valentine's Day brings hotter, sexier energy than the 14th. By the Tuesday it's still pretty romantic, but a bit closer to the status quo. The 22nd is a hot spot in terms of tension and drama, thanks to a square between Mars and Pluto. Just a few days later a New Moon/Solar Eclipse touches down in your house of goals and friends. There could be a bit of drama with colleagues or your girl squad, but you can work it out if you look to the future – together.
