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 20 at 1:14 a.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.
Taurus Season 2023 comes in with a bang. The Sun moves into Taurus just hours after a powerful Solar Eclipse, and immediately squares Pluto. Mercury turns retrograde the day after, on April 21.
In other words, go with the flow and take it easy through most of this Taurus Season, if you can. The energies will start stabilizing around May 19, but until then….the eclipse season (lasting until May 11 this year) is too erratic for making major decisions or starting important undertakings, and Mercury Retrograde adds another kink.
Instead, try some of these Taurus Season ideas:
1 - (Re)connect with Your Values
Escalating interest rates driving up your mortgage. For those who can afford buying a home, that is! A near-miss banking crisis. International conflicts. Your grocery bill still going through the roof. The unsettling talk of de-globalization. Trying to stay abreast of AI and ChatGPT.
The last 12 months have been…interesting, to say the least.
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 since 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
