With Venus spending the next couple of weeks from the start of this forecast period in Taurus, having just snogged Jupiter a few days ago, you might still be glowing a bit. By all means continue to enjoy the planet of love traveling through your sign (note this can be self love, just as much as love for another). Remember amidst the fun however that this is the month before your personal birthday period and the Sun is traversing your solar 12th house. This is an excellent time to reflect on the year past and to contemplate deeply what you will value and manifest for the next year of your life.
