Taurus, and so begins a year of evolution.  As the month begins, Mercury goes direct in the fiery sign of Sagittarius, with your ruler Venus having entered Sagittarius a few days earlier. On top of this, two days ago Jupiter, the Planet of Abundance, shifted direct in your sign. It’s a busy and exciting start to the year astrologically. This particular series of transits are great for focusing on your personal development. There’s a lot happening internally right now and these cosmic energies will help speed up the process of growth that you’re experiencing. This energy can also be quite stimulating, particularly since Mercury, Venus, and Mars are all in Sag. Find ways to stay grounded, socially as well as spiritually through whatever means you’ve come to feel comfortable with. Soak up all the inspiration that you’re feeling as you embark on this new chapter of your life. Affirm that 2024 will feel freeing.
