You need physical security to feel safe and secure in the world, which is why so many of you can be materialistic, possessive and with serious attachment issues. Many of you put your dreams on hold just because of your over-riding need for material possessions and the comforts that money buys. Consequently, you are adept at developing the material and external aspects of life but deny the development of the inner life that is equally important in the quest for meaning. One of your major challenges this year will be a lack of money, a feeling that there is not enough money but on a more subtle level you will be feeling that you are not enough of a person. Your struggle for money now is really an identity struggle but on a level so deep that all the money in the world will not help you feel enough as a person because the real issue is facing all your lacking self-worth issues and the building back stronger not your money but the building of self-esteem. It's the problem of not entirely valuing yourself that is up for the shift in consciousness, it's just that being a Taurus has caused you to identify with the outer world security when in reality the only thing that will ever keep you feeling safe in this crazy and unpredictable world will be an inner value system which is your challenge to develop over the coming cycle. So you can expect some growing pains with the lack of money issues or the feeling that the cash flow that you had is no longer enough money for you. You will tend to worry more about making money but it's also an important opportunity to see how your self-worth is tied up with your money. Just because your money becomes shaky doesn't mean that your life has to shut down. Actually you are in a cycle of transition that will allow you to make even more money in the future but only after you learn to stop identifying with your cash. Taurus knows how to make money and you could actually make it more effortlessly when you let go of the emotional charge on it. Which is part of the lesson for you now. Esoteric Astrology looks at Saturn as representing karmic debts that must be paid in this lifetime, also called one's Dharma, or a person's sense of what is their job as a spiritual human being during their current lifetime. The Nodes indicate the overall soul journey, or the karmic river flow that is the undercurrent of everyone's life and often the karmic relationships which come into our lives to help the process of events unfold. Saturn is transiting with the North Node together in the sign of Gemini from October 2016 through April 2018. This period will be a time in history that all of us are forced to face our karmic or important life issues that the Gemini influence indicates for you with 2nd house financial issues. This combination happens about every 20 to 25 years but it hasn't happened in Gemini since the 19th Century. The last time you might want to look when these karmic forces were forcing us to do some major inner house cleaning was 1978 to 1979 in the sign of Virgo. Jupiter is the planet of expansion, growth and prosperity. Often the sector that it's transits during the year is where you will feel lucky or protected. Jupiter is transiting until the end of July the sign of Cancer which brings it's influence to your 3rd house sector ruling speaking, writing, ideas, siblings and short trips. August 2017 through August 2018 Jupiter will be in Leo transiting your 4th house sector ruling home, family and real estate. Cancer tends to be more beneficial for your sun sign than Leo.
