Taurus (April 20-May 20)
This is the final month of 2013 and therefore the final month we will be using this yearís solar chart. As always, I will endeavor to get out the yearly summaries in January foregoing the Monthly Horoscope for January.
As the month begins you may need to take some time to help take care of your pet, a sibling or a female friend; this isnít something to be overly concerned about but make yourself available if they should need a ride from the hospital or just a caring soul to watch over them while they convalesce.
Responsibility is being tested by exuberance and gregarious energy mid-month, and since the more excitable energies are less strong, I think they should be allowed free reign, as opposed to being repressed by the creepy, established dictates of a rather demented Saturn. This is because jealousy, envy and greed are weighing in here and no one likes that. I am not even going to say where this energy is coming from, but if you read me regularly, you know where your problem is. Again, I am so glad to be parting with your current solar chart because I am so sick of saying the same thing to you. If I were you I would have a special little seance or purging of some sort at the end of the year to mark the occasion of your freedom from this yearís energies.
Uranus, the planet of coincidence, eccentrics and the future will move direct the third week of the month, which will bring with it a real zest for the forward motion of all things avant garde in your natal chart. You must understand however, when dealing with astrology, most of what is relayed in a horoscope has to do with a basic (and sadly generalizing) solar chart, which is what you are getting here and on every other astrology site. Each of us has a very personal chart based upon the moment we are born and the place (if we are lucky enough to have someone who actually wrote down the time) which carries considerably more impact and holds many more truths.
At any rate, as Uranus moves forward, the world will take note because everything Uranus does is done in a more immediate manner with more urgency than any of the other planets. This would be a great year to buy your child the gift of a lifetime (new car?) or take an impromptu vacation with someone you just met, or have become reacquainted after a long separation. If you are harboring a huge secret, you should probably get prepared for some sort of life changing event associated with it. Suffice it to say that if I were looking at a configuration of just this type in a natal chart I would advise the person to expect a life altering event to occur: If not now, then certainly by the end of 2014 after Uranus and Pluto will have had their last tango.
Your holiday, assuming you do a celebratory thing this month, looks lovely. You can get together with good friends who live far away, old college buddies home for a while or even find some element of Truth in your life. I think something shall make you very satisfied and happy by the time 2014 arrives.

2013 is going to be a bit different for you my bovine friends. This year your solar chart has a very full 1st house which relates to your ego, personal agendas and talents, health and how you wish to be perceived by the world. You appear to want to come across as being very sure of yourself, even aggressive. This may go as far as you losing some of your easygoing nature, which is actually one of your best assets. Letís face it, in some professions it doesnít pay to be sweet and funny, so your edgy evolution could help you in a shark infested career. However, I donít think you want to carry this aggressive thing to extremes because the old adage that you ďcan catch more flies with honey than with vinegarĒ isnít an old adage for nothing.
You do have your feet firmly planted in terra firma in 2013, as the element of Earth is very prevalent in your solar chart, which is just a reverberation of your innate nature anyway. Therefore you surely are aware of what you are doing and you wonít be set off by little annoyances. This extra burst of pragmatism is underscored by your intrinsic need to make a lot of money so you can feel secure and comfortable. Many of you may decide to take on a side job, maybe something you can easily do in your off time.
As we meander around your 2013 solar chart we find there isnít a lot going on in several houses, including your house of speculation, entertainment, children and love affairs. This doesnít mean you will have a year void of fun and frolic, but it does mean that you really wonít be overly focused on entertainment.
Your house of marriage, best friends and business partners is hosting the lord of cruelty, traitors and boredom. Okay, donít get all bent about this, it is also the planet of long term, mutually satisfying associations which last because of an enduring compatibility (or maybe a tenacious depravity). Doesnít really matter: This is your fated and destined lot in life and you canít get away from it. To clarify with an example: This can be best explained by those relationships which have progeny. Even if you divorce the partner you will still be forevermore joined based upon the little people you put out into this world. Hopefully you can find some other reason to hang. In the case of business partnerships, perhaps you have built an income together, so even if you truly hate each other (which this year you may) you canít get away from the paycheck. Figure out a way to make it work without being around one another.
If you are looking for a permanent love situation you can definitely find one with a practical, hard working, stolid type. In fact, this person is someone of the ďdestinedĒ variety. The establishment of the relationship will not be easy to negotiate, but if you can arrange it you can have a passionate soul mate for life.
If this energy pertains to your best friend (I wrote fiend first, hmmÖ isnít it interesting how close these two words are in spelling) this person is not likely doing a thing for your personal appeal at this point. Saturn opposing your solar sun is sincerely very icky. This isnít an exact opposition, but you have another little touch of poo on your solar sun, a conjunction of the south node. Therefore, the combined energy of the configuration is quite potent and not necessarily the best auspice. You need to be aware that a partner is out to get you or is running your business into the ground or some other crummy plot. As a side note, the 7th house rules marriage as well as ďopen enemiesĒ. Yes, the Universe has a sense of humor.
This south node thing with your sun is not really great for your health. You will be prone to infectious diseases and because Saturn is involved, blockages and the multitude of irregularities of old age. Over indulgence, or even indulgence in foodstuffs you have never eaten a lot of, can bring about distressing health issues. However, genetics can also save you from some ugly stuff now too. Things that would kill some folks will just make you stronger.
I do want to mention, as a bit of a silver lining to this, that some people are actually blessed, in heavy doses, by the south node. Donít be afraid of it if you have typically taken the more difficult road in life; the one that has offered lots of opportunity for growth beyond your comfort zone. These people will be duly rewarded.
You may feel compelled to spend some time overseas, which is a great thing for you and can bring you into contact with people having a great deal of power. This can do a lot for your career. In fact, this year you may develop a very important relationship with someone who can help you immensely in your career, on your personal quest of enlightenment or with college. For those associated with a university you may be able to utilize the connections in very profound ways.
You will be very popular in the groups you associate with this year. Some of these people will be very glamorous and can bring you opportunities. You may become very emotionally involved with some of the groups to which you belong. These can run the gambit from humanitarian charities to gangs. Therefore it is important to note that it depends upon the orientation of the affiliations as to how you ought to behave. Try not to become emotionally attached to those who voice ideologies which hurt others. This may seem like a ďno brainerĒ but it is amazing how the heart can mask the brain, especially if a magnetic personality is involved.
You still have that weird-ass secret in your 12th house. Last year you deigned to make it funny or rather enjoyed yourself with regard to this secret. This year the fun has dissipated. If this is something that lessens another, or even worse, betrays another, then you may want to extricate yourself from it. Some secrets are best left secret.
There is a very profound configuration which I discussed in the 2013 Yearly Highlights section at length between Uranus and Pluto this year, and it will be in play to varying degrees for the next several years. The weirdness in your house of secrets is impacted by this in a big way, and for quite some time. Pluto is currently transiting your solar house of university studies, philosophy, soul searching, benefactors, in-laws, largess, international business and travels and dealings with foreigners.
Uranus squaring Pluto is reminiscent of the counterculture movement of the 1960ís and is indicative of rebellion and a major sea change in thought processes of those who become powerful verses those who do not. If you are a physician, this can be explained best by the upcoming changes in the healthcare system. Doctors are not going to have as much power. Patients have needed to be very proactive in their health care in the past twenty or more years anyway with doctors becoming more and more inaccessible every year. This inaccessibility is not going to be helped by the new changes in health care, but maybe there will be some other perks, like letting people with pre-existing conditions be eligible for all insurance. So, if you happen to be a doctor, you will see a lot of changes in your practice and how the hospitals you practice in are run.
If you are college age and are rebelling against getting a college education because the studies recently have suggested they do not pay off, you might be making a mistake. This is not because a college education will automatically get you a job. It wonít. However, college makes you learn how to think, how to research and gives you additional time to grow up and find out what it is you are actually good at and would be willing to do for the rest of your life. Having a college education doesnít make you better than anyone, but it does give you an opportunity to work in an environment that doesnít beat the hell out of your body. Manual labor is great when you are young but the older you get the harder it is to get out of bed in the morning and there is always heat and a/c in an office, whereas there is not in a warehouse or outdoors. Statistically, as long as you donít get fat in a sedentary type job, you live longer in a job requiring a college education. I agree. I canít do the 9 to 5 cubical thing either. So get an education in general business and go into business for yourself doing whatever it is you love to do, from art to security to computer techie to whatever it is you have a gift for doing.
May the coming year bring you the equivalent happiness which you have bestowed upon others.
