TaurusApril 20 - May 20
Look for the beauty again Taurus. Today the same fiery and proactive energy that surrounded our last New Moon continues, as the Sun comes into a harmonious connection with Mars. This beautiful planetary energy might feel like a sword of light slicing through the last weeks of (comparative) confusion. The Sun in Aries shines rays upon our unique and individual experiences – while Mars in Gemini opens us up to an abundance of new potential pathways to our dreams. Taurus, this all moves through your sector of sensual pleasure and beauty. If life’s been feeling flat or disconnected for you lately… it’s time to uplift your spirit by seeing (or feeling) abundance. Today, seek out the little things that provide your body deep pleasure. Whether it’s just noticing the vibrancy of green leaves; feeling sand between your toes or really feeeeling the warm healing water of a hot shower. Remember: your sign is the one most associated with sensuality!
Taurus, what are you afraid of? Today asteroid Juno stations retrograde in Sagittarius. Juno tends to represent commitment, as well as partnership-style (romantically or otherwise). Whilst Juno is retrograde, we’re invited to question our reasons for being in a partnership. Taurus, we’re asked to reconsider if our relationships are balanced, if our needs are being met, and if our commitment is returned. As Sagittarius is a sign of fiery freedom – this time might just reveal where partnership is limiting our own individual journeying. A theme that’s been recurring this year for you has involved a fear and resistance towards speaking your authentic truth Taurus. As the energies of today move through your sector of fears and shadows, you might be able to receive some direct clarity as to why. Do you carry fears around rejection? If not, what negative consequence would occur if you expressed the totality of yourself?
Ruling Planet: Venus, the Planet of Love & Beauty
Where You’ll Find Them: Planting an epic garden, reading a novel, searching for food somewhere
What They Avoid: Small talk, unnecessary outings, and unexpected change
Taurus, the second sign of the zodiac, is symbolized by The Bull. True to its symbol, Taurus is stubborn and inflexible, but also very loyal and self-aware. Taurus is all about security and practicality. They’re the type of person who can remain grounded and solution-oriented. Taurus is ruled by Venus, the Planet of Connection, and is therefore prone to seeking comfort and indulgence. Since Taurus is a sign of extremes — they vacillate between feeling very motivated and productive to feeling sluggish or complacent. As an Earth sign, Taurus benefits from spending time in nature and connecting with the world around them rather than getting lost in the material world.
Taurus is independent and loves their solitude. Professionally, they’d like a career that allows them to call the shots from behind-the-scenes. Taurus prefers working on their own rather than in a big group — they don’t like having to take direction from others. Many Taurus will end up owning their own business or working from home for this reason. Taurus is also a natural artist, but they sometimes hesitate to fully tap into that side of them because they don’t think it will be as financially secure. The ironic part is that if Taurus invests their self wholeheartedly in what they’re truly passionate about, the money and success often follows.
Taurus must learn to control their anger, because while it takes them a while to really get angry, when they do it’s not pretty. Taurus tends to hold a lot of their true self in, and this can make them hard to get to know. But once a Taurus lets you into their life, you see a side of them they rarely show anyone else. Stay on a Taurus’ good side and you’ll have a loyal friend for life. Taurus cares deeply about their friends and family and will go above and beyond for their well-being, but you have to be deserving of that energy first. Taurus has exceptionally high standards and expectations.
Being ruled by Venus makes Taurus one of the most sensual, romantic signs of the zodiac. But you wouldn’t necessarily know that upon first glance because there is a deeply guarded side to Taurus. They’re cautious of letting new people into their lives, so it will take a very patient and special person to unlock the key to Taurus’ heart and have them let down their guard. Taurus commits to those they love in an intense, often possessive way, so getting in a relationship with a Taurus is not for the faint of heart. You’re either in or you’re out with Taurus — no in-between.
