Taurus Season: 7 Things to Try
Each Zodiac Sign carries a unique energy signature, from the confidence and boldness of Aries to the intuition and sensitivity of Pisces. As the Sun moves through all 12 signs every year, we get an opportunity to appreciate the best of each energy - and to invite it into our lives.
The Sun enters Taurus on April 19 at 7:24 p.m. PDT this year.
Taurus is one of the most powerful manifestation energies of the Zodiac, bringing results through steady (even if slow) growth, patience, and connecting with Mother Earth. When the Sun is in Taurus, it's time to focus on and appreciate nature, steady growth and strength, physicality and everything that pleases the senses. And it's also a great time of the year to review your relationship with your finances.
Some things to try when the Sun is in Taurus:
1 - (Re)connect with Your Values
The world has been going through so much turbulence in these past few years. So much is shifting and changing around us on a daily basis, it seems. The pandemic. Global conflicts. Supply chain disruptions, brought on by Saturn-Uranus squares in 2021. And we're not out of the woods just yet, with another hit of the Saturn-Uranus energy heading our way in the fall of 2022.
And, this Taurus Season also brings the eclipses. Another destabilizing energy - even though if changes come into your life under an eclipse, they are usually for your greatest good.
And yet, some things haven't changed. Taurus Season is still the time of the year to ground your energy and to connect with your values. Have they shifted during the pandemic? I know mine have. What emerged as a priority is health and happiness for my family, and appreciating each and every day to the fullest.
Chances are, your core values are still there though. They are your North Star. Your compass to guide you as the world around you is shifting and changing.
2 - Know Your Value
And hopefully knowing your own value is one of your values! This wonderful story (source unknown) is from a Facebook group I belong to, Women's Soul Journey:
Know your value.
3 - Romance Your Money!
Taurus Season brings some verrrry practical energies! Let’s face it, money is important. A lot of our self-worth can be tied to finances.
It never is just about money. It's about emotional security. The feeling of freedom and independence. Status. And sometimes, feelings of guilt, shame and inadequacy can also get into the mix.
I've had quite a few clients over the years who expressed self-limiting beliefs toward money. “If I’m on a spiritual path, I shouldn’t be charging too much for my services”. “If I prioritize my time on building wealth rather than helping others, it’s selfish”. “Who am I to be making so much money?”
Embrace financial abundance, says Taurus. Prosperity is GOOD and you deserve it. Build a relationship with your money. Romance your money. Write it a love letter. “Dear Money, I love the feeling of security and stability I feel when I see you in my bank account”…. “I love the freedom to do the things I want, that you afford me”.
Then make a date with it! At least once a month, set aside a few hours, just for your money. Review your bills. Look for opportunities to save. Review your long-term financial goals. Review your budget. Give your money the undivided time and attention it deserves. Check on your progress. Review your investments if you have them. If you find yourself in a financially good spot, consult a financial advisor anyway – is there an opportunity to make your money work for you better than it does now?
And if you haven't yet, set up regular contributions to a savings account, or an investment account. Taurus energy is all about steady acquisition and growth.
And don’t forget to put down your toilet lid in your bathroom, so your money doesn’t flow down the drain – an old feng shui trick!
Your astrological chart can tell you quite a bit about your financial potential.
4- Ground Your Energy
Taurus energy is about creating stability, finding your center in an increasingly unstable world we live in today.
Connect with Mother Earth. Plant a garden. Or some herbs. Basil is a money herb, so as you plant it, set a strong intention for your finances to increase. Then add it to your meals later in the season.
Go for a walk. Enjoy the smell of fresh green leaves and spring flowers, and the feeling of sunshine (or rain!) on your face.
5 - Indulge a Little
Treat yourself to a really good bottle of wine, a gourmet dinner or a massage. Taurus is all about delighting the senses.
6 - Take a Strength Training Class
Keep that body of yours strong and in good shape. And speaking about your body....
7 - Appreciate Your Body Exactly as It Is!
Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, says Taurus.
A Note for Scorpio and Taurus:
2022 brings some very big planetary energies for you. Many of you will experience the Saturn square to your natal Sun, bringing some growth experiences and challenges to push through. But, there will also be some amazing opportunities for change coming into your life too, with Uranus energizing your natal Sun.
And then of course there are the eclipses, happening in Taurus and Scorpio this year. They will be particularly impactful for:
If your natal Moon, personal planets, and the angles (Ascendant, Descendant, IC/MC) are between 0-4°, 12-18, or 23-27° Taurus or Scorpio, you could be affected by this year's eclipse energy as well.
Leo and Aquarius will also feel these eclipses, to a lesser degree.
