The Sun entered the zodiac of Taurus just under a week ago, on Saturday, April 20 – welcoming an earthy, feminine, nurturing, and comforting energy – which after everything that has been going on astrologically over the last few months, feels very needed. This is a season for tapping into a more grounding, connecting, and nurturing energy, allowing yourself to lean more deeply into the pleasurable aspects of life, indulging the senses, and tuning into the feminine nature. This is an ideal period to relax, soften, and cultivate ease, while also aligning with and attracting what you want, instead of trying to make something happen or rush things along.
Sun in Taurus, April 20 – May 21
Taurus is the season of enjoying what is, following the season of Aries, which is one of much outward action and growth, with a huge increase in energy. Looking even at the external environment, it’s hard to miss everything that has recently blossomed and bloomed all around – making this a time of taking it all in and appreciating after a period of action and growth, slowing down enough to enjoy and indulge, bringing the senses back to life! Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus, which is representative of love and beauty, both of which are quite evident in the natural world during this time…
This is also an ideal period to care for yourself – paying attention to how you feel and focusing on experiences and encounters that feel good – cultivating this nurturing, comforting, indulgent energy. Tune into your physical senses and allow yourself to enjoy every moment as much as possible! Do something you have never done or haven’t done in a while, something that excites you just at the thought of it. Smell flowers, really listen to birds, go outside and feel the sun and the breeze on your skin, enjoy and savor every bite of your favorite food, really lean into a hug or warm embrace from a loved one. Even the simplest of experiences should be taken in completely and enjoyed thoroughly, being entirely with the pleasurable aspect of each moment. Give yourself permission to relax, allow, and receive!
The divine feminine is also a huge theme during Taurus season, as both Taurus and Venus represent the divine feminine. Relaxing, allowing, and receiving, as just mentioned above, are qualities of this feminine energy – a time for aligning and attracting – letting go of any need to “make” or “force” anything to happen, relinquishing any need to rush or hurry, trusting all will happen and unfold when and as it should. Taurus’s element is Earth, and our Mother Earth is also a perfect example of this divine feminine energy – this is the most opportune time to really connect with and appreciate her and all of her loveliness during this Spring season!
“Forget not that the Earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.” -Khalil Gibran
