KnowTaurus Scope July 4 – 5

Taurus, make space for the small, easy and replenishing pleasures. The Moon is still in Virgo, inviting us to connect with our natural rhythms until Tuesday night when it shifts into Libra, bringing awareness to what it means to be in relationship with ourselves and the world around us. A shift in energy occurs on Tuesday, when Mars leaves its home sign and enters your slow moving, pleasure seeking sign until August 20th. Pay attention to the little things that feel good. Take note about what helps you cope amongst the chaos. Cultivate the things that help you get rid of what annoys you. Don’t push your feelings away, be with them. Be present for yourself and for the people that matter. Mercury also leaves its home sign to enter nurturing, safety seeking Cancer until July 19th. Activating communication, and bringing more movement and engagement into your day-to-day activities.


KnowTaurus June ’22 Scope

Key Themes: Restoration, emotional healing, nurturing yourself, unifying material and spiritual realms

Taurus, you’re finding your balance again. The eclipses of last month were particularly intense for you, given that they took place on the Taurus-Scorpio axis. This means that the year of 2022 has been flavored by a deep process of transformation, upheaval and evolution. You’re growing, learning and shedding the old skin of past fears and limitations. It’s up to you how much you choose to embrace or resist this process, which in so many ways – is actually a gift.

It’s only natural if you’re feeling exhausted or overwhelmed, it’s been a lot (!) – and you should be proud of yourself for moving through the last months with grace and strength. Now, you can use this next month as a time for restoration.

In general, June is going to bring you some solace and relief from the intensity. First, we have Mercury wrapping up its retrograde in your sign on June 3rd. This auspicious time will bring you a sense of grounding, clarity and empowerment. You might start feeling more like yourself than you have for quite a while. Enjoy this process, and honor it by taking time for yourself and nurturing yourself with beautiful food, conversations and spaces. You deserve that!

It’s not an entirely smooth path forward, as we do have a Saturn retrograde commencing the very next day (until October 23rd). This long retrograde will be shaking themes up on a societal level, as it takes place in the rebellious sign of Aquarius. This planetary signature is all about breaking down redundant structures, unhealthy leadership models and patterns of authority. It may evoke a time of societal reconfiguration, as we begin the large task of figuring out how to work together as humans – in a fairer way.

There’s no need for anyone to be in poverty, suffering or struggling – and with the North Lunar Node in your sign, the universe is reminding us that there really are enough resources on this beautiful planet, for all of us.

Taurus, you might notice some shifts in your career and finances sector with this transit and if that’s the case, trust the process. This Saturn retrograde invites you to connect even the most ‘material’ realms with meaning. There may have been previously decompartmentalization between themes like saving money and your spiritual connection – but this doesn’t have to be the case.

Rather, when your whole life flows together in alignment, so too will more abundance Taurus. Venus (your ruling planet of love and beauty) is in your sign until June 22nd, further emphasizing this learning.

On June 14th, a powerful full moon in Sagittarius brings you adventure and. Stay open to new opportunities around this time, which can be social and exciting. Things may take on a more internal focus as we enter Cancer season on June 21st. This is the time to turn most of your awareness towards your emotions; identifying, honoring and expressing them.

About Taurus

Element: Earth

Mode: Fixed

Ruling Planet: Venus, the Planet of Love & Beauty

Where Youll 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.
