TaurusApril 20 - May 20
Taurus, pick up the pace. Stability doesn’t justify the experience of discomfort. Today the collective will feel a harmoniously fiery aspect, as the Moon in Sagittarius trines Mars who retrogrades through Aries. We might suddenly see the way forward: our life dreams may start turning into clear, actionable steps. Or, this might look like the desires of your inner world coming fusing together with a newfound sense of motivation… Taurus, for you this means tapping into the fire element to bring needed change into your life. There are many areas where you are restless and feeling stuck. You have your motivations for keeping things as they are, but if you’re honest with yourself – these motives are grounded in fear. Today, tap into your inner flame, bravery and courage. Assert your needs, and take the first steps.
Taurus, your relationship needs are shifting – it’s time to ask yourself what you really want. Today, as Mercury retrogrades through Scorpio, it comes into an opposition with Uranus. This means the day could carry a lightning shock type energy, as we see themes of exposure and skeletons coming out of the closet. We might experience an upheaval in our lives, or we could subtly notice truths that always lay beneath the surface… Taurus, this all takes place in your sector of relationships. You might be noticing more about others around you, and not all of it is good. Pay close attention to your triggers, and as they occur, trace them backwards. Why do you feel that way? Your triggers can point you in the direction of your needs. Today, identify and own those needs.
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.
