TaurusApril 20 - May 20
After yesterday’s tumultuous Saturn-Uranus square, the Universe blesses us with more open-hearted vibes as the Leo Moon harmonizes with Mercury in Gemini. We may be reflecting on how courageous we’ve been this year, and this encourages us to keep the faith. Taurus, you’re encouraged to spend more time outdoors and spend less time trying to force yourself to be productive in the more traditional ways. The more you can laugh, dance, play, and create today, the better you’ll feel. Balance out the intensity of eclipse season with the lightness and joyfulness of today’s transits, and remind yourself that even in the midst of unforeseen changes, everything in your life is aligning exactly as it’s meant to.
The main astrological aspect of the week is the Saturn-Uranus square on Monday, which will be felt all month long. Then on Sunday, Cancer Season begins, marking the start of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. Taurus, with your planetary ruler Venus now chillin’ in Cancer, you may not be able to handle how sensitive you feel this week, especially as we approach the start of Cancer Season this weekend. Use Monday through Thursday’s Leo and Virgo Moons to find creative and practical ways to accomplish your goals, while giving yourself many periods of rest. Mercury’s retrograde through Gemini is activating your security sector, making you feel a bit restless when it comes to finances. But once the Moon enters Libra this weekend, you may connect with someone who helps you feel more at ease with your new lifestyle. Take deep breaths and stay centered.

Venus’ entrance into Cancer makes everything feel more homey and sensitive for you this month, Taurus. Let your more sentimental side emerge and take the lead, particularly since it’s retrograde and eclipse season, and there’s a lot of inner healing you’re undergoing. Take the softer approach to communication and connection, and be aware that although sometimes you’ll feel overwhelmed by the emotions that come up, allowing yourself to feel them will be deeply liberating, particularly by the time the Solar Eclipse in Gemini occurs on June 10th.

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.
