In 3 days, on April 19th, the Sun moves into Taurus, kicking off Taurus Season! This means we're exiting Aries Season, a time for energy, taking initiative, and new beginnings. This proved to be an excellent period for that, but now we enter Taurus Season, and energy slows down so we can take a beat and catch our breath.
If you're a Taurus (Sun, Moon, or Rising), or you have a strong natal Venus (the natural ruler of Taurus) or natal Ceres (argued to be the new ruler of Taurus), you know that this sign wants to slow things down. We've been rushing and gushing, and now we want to press pause so we can assess and better decide on next moves. Fellow earth signs Virgo and Capricorn can do well during Taurus Season, along with water sign Cancer and Pisces. Fellow fixed signs Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius may have more work to do.
This Taurus Season kicks off with Mercury moving into Taurus on the same day (the 19th), and Venus having moved into Taurus on the 14th, so we have strong Taurus energy right out of the gates. The Taurus New Moon on May 11th helps add fuel for stability and security.

About Taurus Energy:
Taurus is the second sign in the Zodiac, and follows energetic Aries. Taurus now sees a time to slow things down, take a moment, and press pause. Taurus doesn't feel rushed into anything, wanting to be confident in its decisions first. Confidence can be important for Taurus, helping to make it more decisive.
Stability and security is important to Taurus, and this can be a time to focus on improving that. Areas that have been chaotic can benefit from the calming energy of Taurus, and doing some grounding work can be highly beneficial.
Taurus wants us to take time to be present, in the moment, and reconnect with nature and our bodies. This is a sensual sign focused on the physical world, and we can strive to be more connected.
When you're a Taurus native (or have a strong Venus, Ceres, or stacked 2nd house, which corresponds to Taurus), you're likely someone who naturally takes your time, strives to be confident in your decisions, and is one with your body.

Taurus Season gives you a chance to slow down coming out of your season, Aries. Energy has likely been high, and you can use a little break to rest, replenish yourself, and gather information you need. Anything you do pursue now, you can stick with for a while, so you want to make a good choice. You can focus on bringing more stability and security to your life as well, and may want to take time to ground yourself so you approach everything from a solid position.
Taurus Season is your time, Taurus! When it's your season, it's the time of year for you to focus on what you want to get started. Your energy can be higher, you can be more excited by the opportunities you have, and you can charge forward enthusiastically. This can be a time of new beginnings, projects, and ventures, so think about what you want to embark on now that can be a focus for the next year or so of your life. You can get things started quickly, and feel good about your chances.
Taurus Season can make you get some rest, Gemini, and that may be especially important this go around since the next season is yours (and comes with some wonky astrology!). Take the time you have now to rest, recharge, replenish your energy, and eliminate anything weighing you down or finish anything that has taken up a lot of your time. Releasing can be helpful for dealing with the energy to come. Turn inward, connect to your intuition and subconscious, and reconcile with past issues.
Taurus Season can help push you to do things differently, Cancer. You can focus on what you want to try that's new and unusual or unconventional, and can be more willing to push outside of your comfort zone. You can be more independent and innovative, and willing to expand your social circle or make the most of existing connections. You can think more about your future and what you hope it will be like, and changes you make now may be for the purpose of getting you closer to that dream future.
Taurus Season can help with your goals, Leo. You can be more ambitious, disciplined, and focused, and this can help you make progress, achieve something, or hit a high point in some way. You can get recognition for what you've done right, and make important connections with important people. There may be extra responsibilities now as well, but you can handle them. You can work on long-term plans with a more practical eye, and understand what needs to be done to stay or get on the right direction.
Taurus Season may provoke you to push for some more space in your life, Virgo. This may be in small ways, and you can work within the restrictions you have to find the space you need. You may focus on expanding your mind, learning new things, having new experiences, and you can learn from everything you do. You can be more optimistic than usual, and want to focus on the bright side of situations. This can open you up more, and you can be bolder and more adventurous.
Taurus Season can get you focused on solutions to problems, Libra. You can throw yourself into any situation or project that requires you to be fully invested, and the more you dig, the more you uncover. You can find information that helps you see the way out of challenges, and you can do the serious work that needs to be done. This can also be a time to transform in some way, some part of yourself or of your life, and you can work on it from the core so it lasts for a long time.
Taurus Season lights up your relationships, Scorpio. You may want to spend more time with the people in your life, and you can give them more attention. You may feel more comfortable doing things with a partner, or want to do more to help others. This may feel like a time when it's more about other people than about yourself. At the same time, you may strive to have better balance, so you can try to maintain the middle. You may want to avoid dramatic people, and stick to some peace and harmony.
Taurus Season lights up your work, Sagittarius. You can be much more productive, getting as much done as you can to the best of your abilities, and can be efficient and orderly. You can improve your schedule and routine, and squeeze every last drop out of every second you have. This can be a great time to make progress with work and get attention for work you've done, but you should also try to make time to rest and take care of yourself so you don't burn out. Self care is good!
Taurus Season lights up love for you, Capricorn. You can spend more time with the people you love or doing the things you love, and you may have less patience for anything you don't love. This can make your solid work ethic a little less solid than usual, so try to get done what needs to be done and make extra time for play when you can. Creativity can be high, and this can help you focus on the little things and get work done if you feel you're being creative with it.
Taurus Season lights up your home and family life, Aquarius. You may want to spend more time with family or those you think of as family, and you can be more supportive, but also want more support in return. It's good to strengthen your support system, and this can help you feel more emotionally stable and secure. You can make improvements at home, and want to feel comfortable. This is generally a time when you may prefer to stick to your comfort zone instead of going out of it as much as usual.
Taurus Season stirs up mental energy and communication for you, Pisces. You can come up with plenty of new ideas that excite you, and you can focus on short-term plans to make things happen quickly. You can work on gathering information you need, getting advice, and talking things over, and talking can be something that helps you feel more secure. You can share what you're thinking more easily and openly, and feel more connected to others and more like yourself.
