My dear friends and supporters of SMichaelsAstrology, no words can describe how grateful I feel for your tireless and essential participation and I promise to keep you informed every week . So, I want to send a Grand  "Thank You" and my Love from the bottom of my Heart .  Enjoy your stay !!

We run the astrological month of  Taurus  (04/20 - 05/21) .
Happy birthday to all the Taureans !!
Well, let's see the current week by its astrological point of view :
The placement of the Sun (the Ruler of Leo) in the sign of  Taurus  [Earth]  from April 20, 2018  (G.M.T.  3:14) will be ended on May 21, 2018 (G.M.T.  2:16)   [where G.M.T. = Greenwich Mean Time] . The zodiacal cycle goes on with this fertile sign . Indeed, Taurus is the 2nd sign, a feminine sign, the zodiac earthy sequence of the fiery Aries, the next materialistic course of the Sun . The Taurus' motto is "I Have" and it is a negative sign, ruled by Venus, who needs about 1 year to pass through the 12 signs . Venus can be described as the planet of personal charm, attraction, emotional activity, romance and social success, co-operation, collaboration, marriage, behavior, manners, kindness, politeness, delicacy, finances, money, generosity, peace, understanding, easy and comfortable life, romanticism and fine arts . On the other hand, Venus (the counterpart of the Roman goddess Venus among the Greek goddesses is Aphrodite), may produce indolence, sloth, indecisiveness, weak will, neglect, lack of practicality, deficiency of self-confidence, inability to be profound with the others' feelings, inclination to ephemeral passion or liaisons and last but not least, it is the planet that indicates social adaptation . The Sun in Taurus is exactly the reverse of the violent Aries . His options and thoughts are always slow and careful and due to his planned, steady and direct course, he can almost always enjoy definite and successful results . Taureans get angry infrequently, they lose control on rare occasions, but there is no comparison to their wrath . Their madness then is second to none .  Possessiveness and greediness look like his Achilles' Heel and this gets worse when it is transferred to his erotic affairs . Here it is certain that we can talk about the enemy of innovations, the trustworthy lover, the passionate hunter of security, the unvarying communicator, the down-to-earth materialist . Regarding Medical AstroIogy, I am sure that most of the Taurus individuals know about the possible mental or physical diseases that they are prone to, or they suffer from.  [[ Let's refer to some of them : abscess of the throat or neck, angina, aphonia, apoplexy, bladder disorders, bronchial consumption, bronchocele, collapse, constipation, consumption, cough, defluxions of rheum, diet side-effects, discharges of phlegm, diphtheria, ear disorders, epistaxis of nose, erratic movements, irregular functions, glandular swelling, goiter, gout, heart trouble, hoarseness, impure blood, inflammation of the throat, laryngitis, melancholy, irregular menses, mumps, paralysis, parotiditis, poisonings, polypus, putrid sore throat, quinsy, suffocation, tonsilitis, tumors, venereal diseases, vocal cords, wens etc. >> Bibliography : H.L. CORNELL, M.D., L.L.D. ]] .  Well, this is the Taurean Sun wayfarer that will get so much tired at the end of the 30-day-journey in this sign and pass the torch to Gemini . As a matter of fact, the forceful Sun expands, regenerates and upgrades your life . Here I have to repeat that, as the Sun is the most powerful celestial body and the fiery center of all the other planets, he functions differently when he aspects different planets, which means he responses with a characteristic behavior from month to month (= from sign to sign) and from house to house . So, imagine how different is the Sun in Aries (the previous sign) from the Sun in Taurus (the current one) . See how a Gemini differs from a Sagittarius -they both belong to the Mutable Cross signs- (take an example from some of your friends or relatives) .  Mercury  (the Ruler Of Gemini and Virgo) from March 6, 2018  (G.M.T.  7:35)  until May 13, 2018  (G.M.T.  12:41) covers its course through the sign of   Aries  [Fire] . This position of Mercury will also assist new starts, use of signatures, travels, contacts and communication for Leo and Sagittarius . Here I have to mention that this placement of Mercury in Aries guides to frankness, integrity, truthfulness, straightforwardness, childish naivete, enthusiasm and impatience, that usually generate anxiety, disruption and frustration on account of rush, all particularly stressed at this position . Mercury in Aries produces tendencies to quick thinking and decisions, innovating ideas, vivid communication, open-mindedness, fress opinions, obstinate approaches and a mania to stay away from indolence and sloth. This Mercury is ideal for grabbing chances, mastering new starts, loving to abstain from outdated individuals or things and being attached to whatever new comes to excite his energetic, smart and busy mind .  Venus (the Ruler of Libra and Taurus) the famous Roman goddess of love, beauty, sex, emotional attachments, fertility and prosperity (Aphrodite in Greek Mythology), from March 31, 2018 (G.M.T.  4:55) until April 24, 2018  (G.M.T.  16:41), runs in the sign of  Taurus  [Earth]. This is a placement that makes her prone to possessiveness, stability, sensual delights, lust hunting and immovable affairs . Affectionate, abundant in sexuality, dependable in love, loyal, unchangeable and mostly resistant to changes, passive, born to have plenty of time, gourmandizing and eager to spend time and money in order to live an enjoyable and secure life, hedonistic, luxurius and dominating . When you fall in love when this Venus is in transit, I am sure you will feel fully enchanted and completely influenced because of her unique methods of being trustful, attached or devoted . Venus at this position in Taurus (where she is the ruling planet) favors also Virgo and Capricorn .  Mars  (the Ruler of Aries)  from March 17, 2018, (G.M.T.  16:41)  until May 16, 2018 (G.M.T. 4:56)  moves through the sign of  Capricorn  [Earth] . Mars in Capricorn is one of the best placements for the planet, along with the positions in Aries and Scorpio . Individuals with Mars in Capricorn are controlled and rather quiet. They are determined, when it's necessary and very ambitious in order to succeed.They almost always are fond of the materialistic side of life and they never say ''No'' to discipline and hard work. Social status and wide recognition are the first items in their agenda. They can attain success, although this Saturnian Mars makes them enough cautious, skeptical with a pessimistic attitude and a very serious behavior. Regarding love games they are ordinary and esoteric and despite that they have a forceful libido they have unlimited patience in order to achieve the maximum . Well, regarding the outer planets, Jupiter (the Ruler of Sagittarius) on 2017.10.10  (G.M.T.  13:21) entered  Scorpio  [Water], where he is going to stay until  2018.11.08 (G.M.T.  12:39) . Jupiter in Scorpio is a very favorable position for Scorpio, Pisces, Cancer and Taurus . From March 9, 2018  (G.M.T.  3:48) the planet moves in Retrograde  (Rx)  MotionSaturn (the Ruler of Capricorn) from December 21, 2017  (G.M.T.  4:50) until December 17, 2020 (G.M.T.  5:04) moves in the sign of  Capricorn  [Earth], where he is going to affect the Cardinal Cross Signs (Capricorn, Aries, Cancer and Libra. Saturn regulates relationships, judges illegal activities, strengthens values, establishes dogmatism, restores discipline and administers integrity and justice. In periods when Saturn is Retrograde, inner awareness climbs on higher levels and is extremely attainable to realize, perceive and filter any kind of authority. As regards the Saturn-Uranus trine, it reveals the harmonic co-operation between Dogmatism and Revolution or between Discipline and Innovation in global level . From April 17, 2018 (G.M.T.  23:56) the planet moves in Retrograde Motion .  Uranus (the Ruler of Aquarius) entered  Aries  [Fire] on March 12, 2011 (G.M.T.  0:54)  where he is going to stay until March 6, 2019  (G.M.T.  8:36)  . From January 2, 2018  (G.M.T.  13:45), the planet entered again its Direct (D) Motion .  We must always bear in mind that during its Retrograde Course  the planet has an abrupt and unpredictable role more effectively, influencing in an advanced, revolutionary, crude, furious, raging, rough and painful way the Cardinal Cross Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) . Aries (Fire) is a position very explosive for Uranus, as the Arian flame of aggression, hostility, irascibility and urge will put in motion his "unpredictable events producing machine" and nobody knows the results (either in global or in personal level) .  Neptune (the Ruler of Pisces) from 2012-02-03  G.M.T. 18:53 moves in  Pisces  [Water], that is the best placement of the twelve (this means that the planet at that position functions perfectly) . From 2017-11-22  (G.M.T.  12:42) the planet moves again in Prograde ( = Direct ) =  (D)  Motion . All we need from this celestial body is to spread new vibrations through the profound Piscean visions, that can enhance our mental approaches and give another dimension to our sense of meditation and introspection. As a psychic and spiritual planet it can produce and give blessed creativity and mostly incredible "know-how" to individuals when forming harmonic aspects in transit to their map of birth . We must always bear in mind that Neptune is the planet of confusion, delusion, illusion, ambiguity, transcendence, transformation, religion, hypnotism, magic, sensuality, aesthetics, romanticism, clairvoyance, psychism, receptivity, intuition, inspiration, mysticism, compassion and self-sacrifice . In certain periods, when the planet is in Retrograde Motion, we become more insightful, intuitive and receptive . Pluto (the Ruler of Scorpio) from 2017-09-28  (16:53 G.M.T) moves again in Direct = (D) Course  at 16°51' of  Capricorn  [Earth] . The motion of Pluto (especially the Retrograde one) signals our preparation to the Karmic Lessons and Universal Laws that lead to the unavoidable reconstruction of social status globally, enhances our inevitable inner purges, abyssal instincts, deep responses, profound reactions and buried conflicts . This planet who needs about 250 years to pass through the 12 signs, is the Master of Transformation through the Death-Rebirth (Destruction Of The Decayed And Obsolete & Creation Of The Brand New And Useful) Process . Everyone needs an inner and profound clean-up when Pluto is transiting Retrograde . Pluto is retrograde for about 160 days and is stationary about 15 days before and 15 days after its retrogradation .
For our new visitors of this website, as an introduction to the new astrological week I give you a brief but clear and specific explanation of how a weekly forecast can be simply obtained . Well, that is how the Sun (along with the Moon) and the inner planets move daily :
Sun : (Mean Daily Motion) = 1° approx.,   Moon : (Mean Daily Motion) = 13° approx.,  Mercury : (Mean Daily Motion) = 1° approx.,  Venus : (Mean Daily Motion) = 1° approx.,  Mars :   (Mean Daily Motion) =  0°32' approx. .
As you understand, it 's very unusual to have different aspects and new interpretations (and predictions) every week .
Useful notes :
decan = 10-day-period, each astrological month is divided into 3 decans  (1st, 2nd and 3rd)
Rx = Retrograde course of the planet (apparent) .
D  =  Direct (or Prograde) course of the planet .

The Solar Return occurs always on your birthday, when the Sun comes back to his natal position (at the same degrees) . A Solar Return chart is calculated for a year (from birthday to birthday) and in relation with your Natal Chart they show if the oncoming year generates tendencies that can influence you . All you have got to know and remember is that astrology, along with the mastery to analyze perfectly a personal map of birth and define an individual's profile, makes or dares predictions out of trends, tendencies, liabilities or inclinations .

      Special Notes  :
1.   The "Personal Reports"  page is available for you in
Choose a Category  column .
2.   The positions of the planets in the signs are
in Pacific Time (3:00 p.m.) .

      planet you should  examine is the Sun, as it is the
significant heavenly body .

He is the master of self-awareness and strong will, the contractor of your initiative and dynamism . He wants to make you fearless and faultless, to teach you restriction and limitation,  in order to prepare you to face the hard side of life (To my mind his motto is : Only The Tough Survives) . Uranus in Aries is in transit in your 12th house and he has started a scheduled scan to this metaphysical area and urges you to sudden and abrupt subconscious changes. So you become more kinetic, something you do need as a motive for your evolution . Concerning Pluto in your 9th, he will play a meaningful role to your noetic rebirth . As regards your nights of amusement   25, 26  will be nice .

( 3 + )   Gemini ***   (05/21 - 06/21)

The Sun in Taurus in your 12th house, intensifies subconscious subjects and themes that have their origin in prisons, mental hospitals, homes for the aged and this kind of institutions, in general terms . So, you feel that your secret beliefs are enhanced and your subconscious activities are reinforced in an effortful and burdensome manner . The movement of Mercury in Aries, in your 11th house, will give you the essential supplies you need to be ready, especially in aims, targets, ambitions, pursuits, intentions, desires, aspirations, goals, purposes, friends, clubs, associations, corporations, unions, members of a political party, idealism, free thinking, common results, the higher or lower pursuits of an individual, in a house that describes exactly the person's ability to feel and act free .

Your only health problems are usually caused by exuberant consumption of delicious food and tasty liquids . You seem to enjoy your work, you do a very good job as a dependable worker and you inspire your fellow workers as a loyal cooperator. Saturn in Capricorn transits your 8th house, where your psyche has her double-locked dark dungeons along with her silent and atrocious chambers . This is the house of death and rebirth, financial issues, demands, legacies, inheritances and of whatever has to do with big money. Saturn, as a distinguished judge, may have something valuable to give you out of this house. As you fully realize, the keywords are self-awareness, patience and work on your soul upgrade . I can assure you that your sexual life also takes the form you prefer . With Uranus in Aries, in your 11th house, you are about to see many of your friendships to collapse like castles in the sand or your plans and schedules unable to be activated and carried out.  O.K. no worries, relax now,  go out and have a special drink .  21, 22  would be ideal for that.

Mars in Capricorn,
in your 7th house, may present combative events or daily enervation with cooperators, mate, comrades and partners, by producing a climate of anxiety and worry . I want to believe that he urges you to manage partnership aims this week . Jupiter in Scorpio, in your 5th house, multiplies the possibilities to expand the physical side of your body and give more sensuality mixed with care and interest for your kids and  a good mood for creation activities . Romance, dating, teaching and a creative self-expression . Saturn in Capricorn (in your 7th house), opposite to your sign, keeps on pressing your personality and restrains your enthusiasm . Naturally, as Saturn is in your mate's or partner's area, you have to struggle continually there and you cannot enjoy the above mentioned. As a matter of fact you face difficulties, lack of understanding and heavy conditions, due to Saturn's testing, judging and reaping and digging up undesirable evidence. With Uranus in Aries, in your 10th house, your career take turns from worst to best and vice versa. Be very careful with all this stuff, as Uranus can change everything overnight.

( 5 + )   Leo *   (07/22 - 08/22)

The Sun in Taurus, in your 10th house, will give a month of forceful career matters, status development, social communication with appropriate persons, a serious interest for your public icon and the luxury of producing your own self-promotion .  Mercury in Aries, in your 9th house, you will find many helpful solutions regarding communication with foreign lands, foreign languages and foreign people. This position of Mercury will help subjects that have to do with law, justice, superior education, religion, morality, remote travels, publications, tuition, politics and idealism .  The placement of Venus in Taurus, in your 10th house may create some very useful corridors that lead to your career's ambitious platform . With Mars in Capricorn in your 6th house, so you could be more effective in your labor domain, with an augmented disposition and increased tendency for labor matters, endurance to work and health subjects, in general .  With Jupiter in Scorpio, in your 4th house you tend to generosity, hospitability, self-confidence, patriotism, home return and numerous phone-calls to mother . Now you desire a spacious and comfortable home . Perhaps your parents visit you or you visit them more often now . You may receive wamer or/and unexpected help from them . Saturn in Capricorn in your 6th house tests your endurance in matters of health and everyday work . Don't risk whatever has to do with your stomach and try to abstain from exuberant habits . Your everyday work is also under a great pressure and this makes you overwhelmed with phobias . Your recent digestive problems will be cured as long as you stay calm and adopt rational daily habits and you follow a schedule of regular health examination . Simply try to protect yourself from colds, standing,  cramps and muscle pains. Uranus in Aries, in your 9th house makes things enough hard and complicated in a domain (like the upper mind's domain) that has to be untouchable, as he generates anxiety, fears, intense feelings, nerves, reckless courage and fighting spirit, overwhelming action ability, dangerous initiative and exaggerating mental energy . The 9th house is not a good placement for Uranus (according to traditional astrology), as  he strains the mind, absorbs the mental energy without a particular reason and exhausts the individual with tumultuous events, useless fatigue and waste of energy . The truth is that it would be an intense week, so you have to focus on the essential issues . In matters that have to do with your 3rd house affairs (relatives, brothers, sisters, cousins, traffic and motion in general, communication of any kind, short journeys etc) be relaxed, as I mentioned before .  25, 26  good nights for your pleasure .

( 6 - )   Virgo **   (08/23 - 09/22)

The placement of the Sun in Taurus, in your 9th house trine to your Sun, will give a month full of interesting foreign matters, mind development, communication with foreign lands, foreign languages, foreign people, law, justice, superior education, religion, morality, remote travels, publications or tuition . Mercury in Aries, in your 8th house and you are also about to develop your property and take a good care about how able you are to receive a legacy . The placement of Venus in Taurus in your 9th house will announce some gladsome news from abroad, data that have to do with foreign people, even news regarding higher education or law announcements .
  Mars in Capricorn, (in your 5th house) you will meet significant (but aggressive) and considerable opportunities for creation, augmented sexuality and children cases and affairs . As regards Jupiter in Scorpio, this position in your 3rd house expands and broadens your mind empowering you to comprehend easily. Good relations with siblings, neighbors and relatives. There may be mental restlessness and a tendency to scatter your energy . There is a tendency to be unattainable or self-satisfied. This transit of Saturn in Capricorn transits your 5th house and problems may occur in cases related to your kids for any simple or complicated reason. Your creative abilities may also be under restrained influence, due to fatigue or bad mood along with self-blocking and lack of spontaneity escorted by nuances of agoraphobia. The presence of Uranus in Aries, in your 8th house influences negatively your creation but through the money of others (donations, inheritances etc). In a few words, your creation abilities will be unstable and inefficient .  Surely you need   21, 22  as they are good nights for amusement .

(  7 + )   Libra ***    (09/23 - 10/22)

The Sun in Taurus, transits your 8th house, one of our most crucial houses (a hidden house), which counter to the 2nd, shows material or sentimental possessions coming from others, as donations, inheritances, legacies, stocks, and also loss or profit from pronounced judgments . Deep feelings, soulful libido, endless passion and love for reproduction against death, can be traced in this house . Mercury in Aries, in your 7th house, makes helps you to be favored in co-operations, partnerships, sentimental relations, mates, marriage, divorce and to subjects of visible enemies . The location of Venus in Taurus, in your 8th house will let you have profound, hidden but good news from inheritances, donations or legacies (perhaps with a slow proceeding) . Mars in Capricorn, in your 4th house, you have to be extremely careful regarding home subjects and family affairs, as Mars in our 4th house is a very painful position .
Jupiter in Scorpio transits your 2nd house, where he protects your financial and romantic acquisitions . Money seems to come to you and you have confidence and belief in your talents and abilities. Your visionary ideas and investments give good results. Your materialistic mania will be increased now and some may feel jealous with you.  Regarding Saturn, this period [with Saturn in Capricorn in your 4th house (house of Cancer and the Moon)]  has to do with your ancestors, your roots, your base, your keystone. It is time for you, during these three years to find out and realize where you come from, who you are, where you head and it would be expanded like an identity crisis. You do that on account of deep oriented causes, the main reason is that Sagittarius guided by Saturn (or the opposite) directs all these psychic divings for exploration . The 4th house is also our home, our family, our protection and ease. Now you find yourself in need of reshaping and regenerating your home life and you feel especially responsible for that . Anyway, it is time for you to grow up and rebuild your emotional sources . At the end of this transit you will feel enough free of maternal or paternal hints and their unbearable domination. Now with Uranus in Aries, in your 7th house, (your mate, partner or co-operator domain) you feel things rather sharp, hard, unpredictable, aggressive and full of obligations that have to be operated . As I  have said many times in the past, at home things are weird for a long time now and they are getting complicated again, as the immovable presence of Pluto in Capricorn generates a sense of cold logic in matters of respect, rebirth of rotten relationships and development of understanding . Generally, during this week, keep quiet as much as you can and try to donate all your love and affection to your kids and their environment . Now it's time for you to get involved in your sexual affairs, your creativity and pleasures of life.  23, 24  would be fine for having a good time this astrological week .

( 8 - )   Scorpio ****   (10/23 - 11/22)

The Sun in Taurus, runs your 7th house (that moreover is one of our most significant houses along with 1, 4, 10 houses) will spread plenty of light to co-operation, mate, comradeship, partnership and visible enemies subjects . Mercury in Aries, in your 6th house, will signalize a particularly stable period, regarding your work affairs with the attached issues and it can be enough serious in relation to conversations and results . It signifies also important and meaningful decisions for changes that have to do with your everyday habits .
The location of  Venus in Taurus, in your 7th house, will give a good boost to your relations with the opposite sex this week and she will help you to construct a schedule of mate tactics, partnership methods and a good program of profound solutions with co-operators .  I am sure that Mars in Capricorn in your 3rd house, will move daily routine, motion cases, relatives acceptances and fixing of short trips, as this is a quite comfortable position for Mars .  With Jupiter in Scorpio, in your 1st house, things are becoming really better for you and the others are considerably  and greatly impressed by you . The Influence of Jupiter will expand your expectations and fulfill your desires for recognition. So now, it is the right time to promote your public icon, to increase your flexibility and to let your adaptability be your master power . With Saturn in Capricorn transiting your 3rd house (the house of Gemini and Mercury) it looks like you are absolutely thirsty in front of a well of water and you unfortunately have no bucket . All of your queries, demands and questions meet no answers and your seeds of intuition have been parched. Your relatives turn their back on you and you are not even able to guess why and how. Your everyday life looks weird and unnatural, while your daily routine seems demanding and tiring . The solution is given by Saturn who, fortunately and evidently clears up all things that have to do with the 3rd house . Now you will find out who your acquaintances really are. You will distinguish the use of familiar talking and of serious conversation. Through this transit you may feel inadequate with your intellect or you may find inefficient some of the people you meet everyday. At least you will be more logical and responsible, as things go slowly but steadily . Uranus in Aries moves in your 6th house, so health, labor, subordinates, servants, pets, our diseases (the short ones), how we behave to our body, physical condition, endurance to work or kind of work may upset you .  At the same time Neptune in Pisces, which is the ruling placement of the planet, in your 5th house, will make you have creativity problems or issues with your sexual life or deceit tendencies that have to do with your kids, in general . At the same time a number of hard conditions  has occured for a long time now . Enough family problems or rearrangements (if you prefer), appeared  in order to deaden rotten or obsolete situations and generate brand new ones . Regarding your amusement, choose some good friends or mates, try the following days and enjoy the nights .  21, 22  are excellent for that .

( 9 + )   Sagittarius *   (11/22 - 12/21)
