Each astrological season influences us in different ways. Whether we consciously recognise it or not, cosmic energy affects us all.
Between the dates of April 20 and May 20 we go with the flow of Taurus season. As the 2nd sign of the zodiac, and the first Earth sign of the astrological calendar, Taurus season helps us summon the strong and stable nature of the Bull, giving us the strength and patience to calmly go about our tasks, with a more realistic and grounded sense of what needs to be done.
So, all those exciting ideas born during Aries season can now take a deliberate step forward by harnessing the persistent and steadfast qualities of the Bull. But, grant yourself permission to take a break from the fast-moving, high energy of Aries and plod more methodically into greener pastures, diligently acknowledging each practical step you need to take along the way.
Taureans are known for their persistence and commitment to achieving the end goal, but their slow and contented approach to accomplishing tasks means they don’t forget to live in the moment and take in all the physical pleasures of the world around them.
Ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty and love, those born under the sign of Taurus are always eager to indulge themselves in the luxuries of the five senses and seek out pleasure of both body and heart. With the help of Taurus we can bring focus back to what our physical bodies are craving and may suddenly be more aware of exactly what that is.
Taureans have an unwavering sense of who they are and what’s most important to them and are often unwilling to compromise on these things. Although this gives them a reputation for being bull-headed or stubborn, their pre-occupation with creating strong and stable foundations for themselves and others means they are more steadfast and balanced then they are often given credit for. The infamous temper of Taurus is only ever seen in rare instances, so it is safe to abandon those images of the angry, charging bull!
Thriving on duty and responsibility, Taureans simply roll up their sleeves and get the job done when something is deemed important to them. This is when the bull can be seen charging ahead at full steam. When this happens, there is no match for the stamina, will and perseverance of a Taurus. At most other times, Taureans are contented and relaxed, happy to take their sweet time and enjoy the ride – seemingly conserving their energy for the next flight of fancy.
Use the discerning and patient energy of Taurus to accomplish the things that are most important to you this season. Build something new and amazing or revisit a tedious project with renewed commitment. Use the creative and passionate energy of Taurus to awaken a sensual awareness or reconnect with earthy pleasures.
It is said, the bull does not like to walk on shaky ground, and the energy of Taurus can help lead us to improved stability, if we can simply go slowly and put in the hard work to get there. With the energy of Taurus behind us, the finish line is in sight and this time we might actually have the strength to go the distance.
