In my earliest days of living in the UK, I used to wonder (as an Australian) why so many people spoke so often about the weather. Now of course, after a number of years living here continuously, I understand from experience!

The long drawn out cold snap of early spring is behind us in the northern parts of the world - autumn is beginning to colour the landscape in the south. This is a time to let things unfold, and to trust that there is a rhythm to every aspect of life.

Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus, traditionally known as the “Goddess of Love”. Actually, Venus rules both Taurus and Libra, and as a rule, she holds court over two areas of life: love and money.

The planet Venus deals with what we value in life - our sentiments, compassion and what gives us pleasure. Taureans often possess great beauty, charm, grace and artistic talents, and they are always trying to blend cooperation, love, unity and harmony between people. When any of these things are not working in their life, they feel out of sorts. Therefore they like to maintain an even balance to feel comfortable within themselves.
