Brace yourself for impact, starbabes—Taurus season 2023 is bringing all the cosmic drama. The sun will be in headstrong Taurus between April 20 and May 21, with both eclipse season and a pesky Mercury retrograde caught in the mix. Yes, you heard that right. These ultra-dramatic transits tend to be pretty generous with communication mishaps and emotional outbursts, so expect the next few weeks to feel like a crash course in patience and self-love. Just as the resilient Taurus weathers any storm with grace, the collective is being inspired to stay grounded—and knowing the astrology of Taurus season 2023 is a must to revel in all of the Venusian magic.
Welcome To Taurus Season
Knowing the energy of Taurus season requires a bit of background of the valiant earth sign. For starters, Taurus is an earth sign, making them down-to-earth, patient, and artsy—which is totally on brand with the blooming of spring. Since earth signs pride themselves on tolerance and unwavering faith, Taurus season asks us to pause and pace ourselves as we wean away from the hustle and bustle of Aries season and enter a calm and tranquil space.
Thanks to their Venus ruler, Taurus is super sensual with an eye for the finer things, which might explain why you find yourself indulging in your self-care routine (candlelit bubble bath, anyone?) or lounging in bed for a little longer. On the flip side, the romantic sign errs on the stubborn side. After all, they’re symbolized by the bull—so when it comes to collaborating at work or confronting your partner, seeing other perspectives may be a little challenging while the sun is in Taurus.
Associated with the second house of finances, possessions, and self-value, Taurus rules all things in the material realm. That makes this season a powerful time to review your budget and practice self-compassion. Basically, if ever there were a time to pamper yourself—shopping spree included—it’s while the sun orbits in Taurus territory.
Your Seasonal Forecast
Spring is in full bloom and so is our regularly scheduled chaos à la Mercury retrograde, which starts on April 21. Mercury’s backspin is known to induce confusion and confrontation, making Taurus season 2023 ripe with relationship drama, communication hiccups, and travel snags. But with the help of Taurus’ steady energy, this season poses a perfect time to withdraw from the mayhem and take things slow. Needless to say, it’s not the time to sign off contracts, start new habits or commit to anything major.
Things will get deep around the full moon lunar eclipse in Scorpio on May 5. Full moons are about completion and naturally bubble your deep needs up to the surface, but in astrology, a lunar eclipse—which only happens on full moons—are heavy on the endings. La luna’s ingression into the transformative water sign Scorpio prompts uninhibited emotions and the power to release things that don’t align with your higher self. Deep wounds within your personal relationships may show up in ways you can’t ignore. But despite the uneasiness that comes with change, fresh beginnings wait on the other side.
Despite the turbulence during Taurus season, you can count on the bull to help you build stamina and patience.
Expect to feel nostalgic near May 7, when Venus enters tenderhearted Cancer. The delicate water sign tends to induce sentimental feelings whenever the planet of love is stationed in the sign. Domestic matters may prove to need extra attention right now. It could be a good time to weed out the people that don’t feel safe or consider what family means to you. When Jupiter, the planet of abundance, rendezvous in Taurus on May 16, clarity about your finances might help us create healthier and stable habits. Whether it’s opening new investments or monetizing your hobbies, the invigorating new moon in Taurus arriving on May 19 is a perfect time to plant seeds toward your financial growth. That also goes for your relationships, too, as the invigorating new moon in Taurus arriving on May 19 pushes you toward achieving your highest ambitions this year.
Despite the turbulence during Taurus season, you can count on the bull to help you build stamina and patience. Take things slow and don’t hesitate to play hooky from your day-to-day and opt for an impromptu self-care day—candlelit bubble baths, Ben & Jerry’s, and all.
