TaurusApril 20 - May 20
Taurus, look after yourself first. A strong tension between the Moon and Mercury is going to highlight some of your Mercury retrograde themes – so the next few days will be a good time to lean into this healing journey. You may be noticing a need to ground yourself, to slow down, minimize and connect with simple pleasures. The universe is inviting to shift your awareness out of your head – and into your body. Nurturing your nervous system with rest, hydration and relaxation is often the path to best serve your expansion. As simple as it seems… life will flow more seamlessly when you feel empowered and good within yourself. Like attracts like. This means that rather than getting too caught up on external matters – your priority is nurturing yourself.
Taurus, the month begins with the New Moon in Pisces receiving hopeful and expansive blessings from Jupiter. Your social spaces will have a kind of magic to them. Allow yourself to be showered with compliments. Get involved with the causes that are close to your heart. On the 6th, Mars and Venus enter Aquarius, making it a great time to connect with the ones that can help further your career. Mercury enters Pisces in your area of innovation on the 9th. Much can come from exchanging unusual and inventive ideas within your groups. On the 18th, we have the Full Moon in Virgo, bringing some romance into your life. Be selective about who you want to attract. If you want people to grow and have fun with, make sure you’re invested in your own growth and happiness. On the 20th, the spring equinox brings the Aries Season and the beginning of the zodiacal year. Then Mercury enters Aries as well on the 27th. Check in with yourself each morning. Meditate. Your inner life will need as much love and attention as the things you put out into the world.

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.
