Taurus Weather Dates to 2026
Even if you have nothing in Taurus in your natal chart, you will still be affected by a revolution in the world economy until the year 2026. It began with Blockchain and new laws on money laundering, back in May 2018. It gathered speed with COVID-19 in 2020. In this feature I will look at what to expect and when to expect it.
Taurus Weather. When Everything Travels in Taurus
Check the dates on paperwork (like mortgage repayments or contracts) to see if anything coincides with dates in this feature, as this is when the economy is at its most unpredictable. One of the reasons for this is the constantly mutating virus and the sudden orders to shut business, shops, retail – and work from home. Right around the world, we must get used to this stop-start and slowdown in our money-go-round from 2021-2026. Yet, there are times when it is more dramatic than others. At such times, we find an unusually high number of transits (travelling planets or other factors) in Taurus. But first I want to take you back to the last war. I was just thinking about that cycle, for a piece for VOGUE in Japan. The Americans helped liberate Paris and free France. That’s priceless. And yet the war cost. People also made profits from it. All this is coming back in 2022-2023. There are some really old balance sheets from 1939 which will be sorted out and settled in the next year or two. (Image: Unsplash: Яна Гурская).
The Taurus Weather on 3rd September 1939
You would expect the line-up of horoscope factors on 3rd September 1939 (when the war was declared) to be historic and it is. On that day, Saturn was at 0 Taurus, the Moon was at. 0 Taurus and the South Node was at 0 Taurus.
What does that mean? Well, it takes Saturn 29 years to repeat himself in this sign, which has always ruled the economy, and it takes the South Node around 19 years.This really unusual line-up is about karma. The South Node has always ruled ‘what goes around comes around’ and here, it is very much about money. Big business. The sharemarkets.
War Karma in July 2023
What that means is that everything about the next Node appearance at 0 Taurus comes together to repeat old karma. This happens on July 11th 2023, as closely as we can come to an exact replay. It does not mean war. It does mean old spiritual and soul debts from the last war, need to be repaid and it will be on an economic level. July 11th 2023 finds the Moon at 0 Taurus and the North Node at 0 Taurus (similar to the South Node of karma) and that’s significant.
If you have anything in your chart at 0 Taurus and/or Scorpio, the other finance sign, then look at where your country stands in the grand scheme of things, because the global and national will affect you – personally – in July 2023.
Watching the Year 2021 With Debbie Frank
In May 2021 I got together with Debbie Frank, former astrologer to Diana, the Princess of Wales, to talk about the Taurus weather that month. The Sun, New Moon, Mercury, Venus and Uranus were all appearing in the sign of the bull – and also bull markets and gold bullion.
Taurus and Scorpio in 2021
These opposite signs both rule your life budget. Taurus rules your own money. Scorpio rules the marriage and mortgage, or the family inheritance your own account, or your legacy to others. Taurus is your own values. What you will and will not sell out for. Scorpio is the need to factor in other people.
We have a real moment with the New Moon at 12 Scorpio on Thursday 4th November 2021 and then the Full Moon and eclipse at 27 Taurus (opposite the Sun at 27 Scorpio) on Friday 19th November 2021. This occurs in Scorpio weather, so Mercury is also in Scorpio and Mars, as well. Uranus is in Taurus, on the other side.
Mars brings a lot of heat, speed and conflicted situations with him, and as he will be in opposition to Uranus on Thursday 18th November, at 12 Taurus-Scorpio, you may want to avoid the 17th, 18th, 19th for financial negotiation as it’s pretty disruptive. You also have to realise that the New Moon on the 4th, a fortnight before, is also at 12 Scorpio. Basically if you have anything at that degree of Taurus or Scorpio, you may want to keep the stakes low.
The Year 2022
The big moment of truth in 2022 for the world economy, and your bank balance, is the North Node entering Taurus at 29 degrees of the sign and the South Node moving into Scorpio at 29 degrees, right opposite. This takes place on Wednesday 19th January 2022. Ceres is also in Taurus. Now, a lot of astrologers ignore her, but she is a strong symbol of enforced compromise; deal-making; merger brokering. The line-up with the North Node and South Node at 28 degrees is pretty potent and it’s not happened for years.
You’d be looking at Monday 31st January, Tuesday 1st February when we see the North Node at 28 Taurus in exact conjunction with Ceres at 28 Taurus. This feels rather like a carve-up on trade, globally. If you have anything at 28 Taurus and/or Scorpio then obviously watch that date on any paperwork as there will be a big shift in the balance of power affecting your money. It’s not just the new, independent United Kingdom – it is also her relationship with Scotland, also striving for independence. Given that the world will be going through a long, two-year period of karmic settlement from 1939, you’d also have to finger Germany, Poland, Belgium and so on. This is about the EU.

Countries With the 1st February 2022 Pattern
Turning to The Book of World Horoscopes by Nicholas Campion (Wessex Astrologer, 2004) I find France with the North Node at 28 Scorpio and South Node at 28 Taurus. Russia has Venus at 28 Scorpio. America has her North Node at 28 Scorpio and South Node at 28 Taurus. She also has Jupiter at 28 Scorpio in one of her many charts. (People are surprised to find that countries have multiple ‘birth’ charts but of course, each one shows a different stage in her history and architecture – and laws).
This suggests the European Union is at the heart of the forced compromise, possibly over the Euro, and perhaps over border control, membership, trade and so on.
April 2022 and the Eclipse
An eclipse is always a cover-up. The truth is hidden in plain sight, or you just cannot see/do not know what is going on. Buyer beware. We have one on Saturday 30th April 2022, with the New Moon in Taurus and the Sun also in Taurus, both at 10 degrees. If you have factors at 10 Taurus and/or Scorpio you’d steer clear of that period, as making moves or passing judgement on an eclipse is like driving blind. April 2022 is an important month as we have the Sun, that eclipse, the North Node, Mercury and Uranus all in the sign of the bull, bull markets and gold bullion. Remember Uranus leads the pack. April 2022 and May 2022 (when we have a Full Moon eclipse at 25 Scorpio opposite the Sun at 25 Taurus on Monday 16th May) will be unstable.
The Property Market in 2022
We have Ceres (enforced compromise, deal making, big power reshuffles) in Cancer, which rules the property market and real estate, at the same time. She enters Cancer on May 16th 2022, so right on the day of that eclipse in the finance signs. This is a cover-up or blind spot for all of us, because an eclipse always conceals; it never reveals. We’re left in the dark. Why? Well, Ceres entering the sign of houses, apartments, land and mortgages gives us a pretty good clue.
May and June 2022
This whole period extends into June 2022 as we have Venus in Taurus that month, and Mercury Retrograde in Taurus too. Just when you didn’t need it. However, I am pleased to give you advance notice so you can be aware of the reversals, retracted statements and reshuffles ahead. Mercury is Retrograde in Taurus from Tuesday 24th May 2022, moving backwards and forwards from 26, 27, 28, 29 Taurus until Monday 13th June, when he disappears.
He was formerly at those same degrees on 27th, 28th, 29th, 30th of April 2022, right across that eclipse also in Taurus, which is why you’d want to be extremely cautious about the Taurus weather of 2022. Some people do really well from using Mercury Retrograde market chaos. They buy cheap and sell, quickly, at a profit. You absolutely have to know what you are doing, though, and with Ceres in property sign Cancer, I think April-June 2022 needs kid-glove handling. Obviously if you have Taurus and/or Scorpio factors at 26, 27, 28, 29 you’d want to check paperwork very carefully, as Mercury can be tricky when he appears to be going backwards. People often literally ‘go back on their word’ on such a transit.
Keep your eye on Mars in Taurus in conjunction with Uranus in Taurus at 18 degrees, on Monday 1st and Tuesday 2nd August 2022, as these two together move like lightning, then wildfire. Venus is at 18 Cancer, the sign ruling property, on Tuesday 2nd August and the North Node at 18 Taurus and South Node at 18 Scorpio on the same days, make the start of August absolutely explosive. If you have anything at 18 Taurus/Scorpio/Cancer you’d want to expect the unexpected.
October and November 2022
October 2022 brings us another eclipse, this time on Tuesday 25th October, with the New Moon at 2 Scorpio. Remembering that an eclipse conceals, it never reveals, if you do have anything at 2 Taurus and/or Scorpio in your chart, you’d want to choose another date for big economic choices. As if that wasn’t enough, we have another Full Moon eclipse at 16 Taurus, opposite the Sun at 16 Scorpio, on Tuesday 8th November 2022.
We also have Mercury in Scorpio in November, and Venus as well, so this is a prime time for negotiations, purchases, sales and deals. Skip the eclipse especially if you have anything at 16 Taurus and/or Scorpio and be aware that (even if you don’t) the fact that Uranus, the symbol of all that is unpredictable, unusual, and full of upheavals – is at 16 Taurus, in a rare line-up with that eclipse Full Moon at 16 Taurus, right on Tuesday 8th November. This is likely to be about cryptocurrency. This is also the clearest indication yet that old-fashioned buses (like this one, below) and cars; fossil fuel transport and antiquated train systems, are going, going gone. We won’t see the final push until Uranus goes into Gemini, the travel sign, from 2026, but Uranus in Taurus is about new inventions, and if this isn’t about Elon Musk’s mainstream imitators yet, it soon will be. Uranus rules electricity and new inventions. First in Taurus (the world’s oil economy) and then in Gemini (actual transport) it’s radical. (Image: Unsplash).
The Year 2023 and Your Life Budget
We begin 2023 with the North Node of world karma in Taurus, once again, and the South Node (also showing old debts and credits from the war) in Scorpio, the sign ruling marriages and mortgages, as well as family money. Uranus turning direct in Taurus at 14 degrees of the sign on Sunday 22nd January will show up as an obvious time warp, or time loop, likely involving cryptocurrency.
Watching April and May 2023
We have another ‘money’ eclipse on Friday 5th May 2023, with the Sun at 14 Taurus, opposite the Full Moon at 14 Scorpio. If you have anything in your chart at 14 Taurus or Scorpio, avoid that period, as an eclipse tends to leave you in the dark.
We also have Mercury Retrograde in Taurus at 14 degrees, so that complicates things even more. You may want to give April-May 2023 a pretty wide berth unless you absolutely know what you are doing, and have wide experience in deliberately using Mercury stuck’backwards to profit.
Mercury moves back and forth from 5 to 15 degrees of Taurus, from Friday 7th April 2023, until Thursday 1st June. Always use the shadows (pre and post shadows) with Mercury, and here we have a long shadow cast near Easter, and a really shadowy or hidden moment, actually on 5th May – the eclipse. Something rather interesting happens while all this is going on, though, and that is the arrival of Jupiter (abundance, solutions, good fortune) in Taurus – for the first time in 12 years.
Jupiter in Taurus From May 2023
Jupiter makes his debut in Taurus at 0 degrees of the sign on Wednesday 17th May 2023. For those of you who do have Taurus factors, his entry into your Second House will feel like Santa Claus bouncing down the chimney with a sack of bargains, offers, discounts, and the rest. This is a really interesting time in global economic history, as we have both Jupiter (the biggest and best) and Uranus (freedom, independence, the revolution) in the sign of currency, property, big business, charity and so on.
There is a New Moon on Friday 19th May at 28 Taurus which will ring the changes. You will see a lot of green lights that day. We are also nearing the end of the Taurus weather, with the North Node slowly moving out of the sign in June 2023. After a really heavy, karmically loaded 2022, May and June 2023 will feel like the start of something.
The Nodes Depart Taurus and Scorpio – July 2023
You’ll remember how I mentioned July 11th 2023 was this uncanny echo of the first day of the last war. The Nodes at 0 Taurus-Scorpio and the Moon there too. This seems to be part of what goes down in May, June, July 2023. It would have to involve the European Union, because of Germany, Poland and the United Kingdom. However – there is also America to consider – and the allies – including Australia and New Zealand. The middle of 2023 looks and feels like a brand new global economic deal, but it would be balancing some very old debts and credits.
What you are left with once the Nodes are out of the money signs, Taurus and Scorpio, on Tuesday 18th July 2023, is a clear run of Jupiter and Uranus in Taurus and that is fascinating.
Skipping the Eclipse of October 2023
We have a Full Moon at 5 Taurus, and an eclipse, on Saturday 28th October 2023. It is right opposite the Sun at 5 Scorpio. We also have Mercury and Mars in Scorpio, so October 2023 is extremely important. Ceres is in Scorpio which suggests a change in the balance of power between nations and also on the markets. This is a carve-up, which Ceres always brings. With Uranus and Jupiter in Taurus, right opposite Scorpio, October 2023 suggests a huge (but productive) clash of values. Your life budget versus his, hers or theirs. I’d say the discussions and paperwork would start rolling from Monday 23rd October 2023, but just avoid that eclipse. It’s like driving down a laneway with broken headlights. (Image above: Greg Bulla, Unsplash).
November and December 2023
A New Moon at 20 Scorpio on Monday 13th November is a new start. We’ll see people making new wills; lots of year-end decision-making about the new year to come 2024. There is optimism. Jupiter is in Taurus. Uranus is in Taurus. The Scorpio weather of the final two months of 2023 is fast (Mars is in Scorpio) and determined (Ceres is in Scorpio). We are also seeing Pluto come to the end of his long stay in Capricorn, the sign of Presidents, Prime Ministers and big businessmen. This is going to make 2024 pretty dramatically different to everything we knew, back in the days of Donald Trump and Jeff Bezos.
With Venus in Scorpio throughout December, the end of 2023 feels like the end of so many marriages or live-in relationships; the end of so many family arrangements. Yet endings bring beginnings and there is a feeling that 2024 is the huge fresh start, financially and personally.
The Year 2024 and Taurus Weather
We start 2024 with Jupiter in Taurus, Uranus in Taurus, and Pluto out of Capricorn (the corporate and political world) on Monday 22nd January. That is massive. You have been living with the abuse of power by the people and organisations at the top, since 2008. We all have. Yet, Pluto always brings a take-down and a comedown, and that will. have happened by now, as we’re going to see people power replace corporate and political power. That is what Pluto in Aquarius promises. Aquarius has long ruled ‘we the people and the global community across all genders, ages, races and nationalities. At this point I would expect the new community and local banks, using digital currency (friends helping friends or friends, in the local area) to become a normal part of life. High street bank dominance looks pretty much over by January 2024!
May 2024 and Taurus Weather
This is a really good month to use. The Sun in Taurus, so you can see what you are doing financially. The New Moon in Taurus at 18 degrees of that sign, on Wednesday 8th May 2024. Mercury zipping through Taurus to help with the paperwork, from Thursday 16th May until Monday 3rd June. Then Venus going into the property sign, Cancer, from Tuesday 18th June 2024 and Mars in Taurus, from Monday 10th June. By then, Jupiter will have moved out of Taurus (he leaves on Saturday 25th May) so hopefully this is the useful aftermath of all the solutions and opportunities you snapped up in May.
Uranus in Taurus remains until 2026, but that historic and powerful surge of Taurus weather, particularly in 2022 and 2023 will have transformed just about everything we know regarding the world economy, as I write this on Wednesday 2nd June in the year 2021. If you do have Taurus and/or Scorpio factors in your Second House and Eighth House, do make it your business to be right across the business end of life, during these years.
