Welcome to Taurus season! This season is all about slowing down, getting intentional and connecting to yourself, nature and things of this material world. Taurus season is my absolute favorite (although I might be biased because I’m a Taurus baby.) This is a season of pleasure, enjoyment and connection.
On April 21 there is a Mercury retrograde in the sign of Taurus that lasts until May 14. Mercury, the fast moving planet of communication has gotten a bad rap with retrogrades, but I would like to offer a reframe here: this time period where things may seem chaotic and frustrating in our outer world can be a beautiful time to slow down, and turn inward. This is an invitation to revisit themes on where we can integrate and incorporate more Taurean energy into our lives.
Taurus season invites you to take more time for yourself, dive into luxury and pleasure and connect to your body and nature.

I recommend reading your horoscope for your rising sign. Your rising sign denotes which area of your life planets are moving through and therefore will be more accurate.
For Aries rising, Taurus season is a story around your money, personal wealth and bringing more love, romance and connection into your home life.
The sun enters the sign of Taurus on April 20 bringing energy and focus to your second house of money, resources and material possessions.
With a Mercury retrograde quickly following the entry of the sun into the sign of Taurus, this could be a good time for you to revisit your relationship with money. How are you spending your money? Do you have a budget? Are you cultivating new skills or talents to start that side hustle? It might be time to reflect on how your current job or career affects your financial wellbeing.
Digging into finances is not always the sexiest of tasks, but getting serious about your spending habits now could really benefit you in the long run. Saturn, the planet of maturity and structure, is sending positive energy for you to get deliberate about this area of your life. Sure, Saturn can be tough and no nonsense, but he always delivers–whether it’s an uplevel for heeding his advice or a little spanking if we choose to ignore this task master, Saturn always gives us the goods.
If you have been thinking about travel, the beginning of May might be a good time to shake up your routine with a romantic getaway, or a fun night out on the town with your bestie. This is a good time to rediscover joy and pleasure in your everyday life and step out of your daily routines.
When Venus, the planet of love and beauty enters the sign of Cancer on May 7th, you might find yourself taking on a more nurturing role in your close relationships. With Venus in this watery sign you might be feeling more connected to your loved ones or inspired to do a little nesting around your home to beautify your living space. Themes of a sentimental nature could arise for you, and there is no judgment for staying at home and binge watching rom coms on Netflix with a box of tissues close by.

It is understandable if matters dealing with money have felt stagnant or frustrating during this retrograde period, but as quick moving Mercury heads direct, things in this area of your life should start to pick up speed.
