The Sun entered Taurus on Thursday, April 20, 2023, 1:14 a.m PDT. Usually, we're used to entering a new season with a new moon in the same sign closely following, but we enter Taurus Season this year right after a new moon total solar eclipse in Aries. And other than Mercury stationing retrograde, it's fairly quiet in the astro skies until May. It's a reflection for us to take some time to slow it down, and allow things to bloom naturally.

A moment for surrender. This doesn't mean we're inactive. It just means we're not forcing anything. We may be feeling unsure about our next steps, a little lost in the residue of headaches and heartbreaks from the eclipse, but Taurus wants to remind you of all the resources that are available at your fingertips. Are you using these tools to their maximum capacity? What could you invest more time in? How could you build out (or in) and give more support to projects you started?

The priority shifts from getting shit done as quickly as possible no matter what to making sure we're nourished enough to complete tasks as efficiently as possible because why do it if it doesn't feel good? Taurus, a sign ruled by Venus, is not interested in hard labor. It's called working smart not hard. It's also about attracting and receiving rather than chasing, though, with Mercury Retrograde attached, it becomes about reviewing and relating.

Be open to new love and healthier relationships with those whose values align with yours this season. We're returning to the basics of love - before it became enmeshed with and dependent on providing financial stability. With Venus entering Cancer along with Jupiter in Taurus, the energy will be filled with soft giggles in the corner as you sit close enough to feel the exhale leave the other's lips. It's a chance to revel in the beauty of pure soul connection.

Expect a financial boost as well with Jupiter in Taurus, especially if you've been giving a lot of energy to what you feel your purpose is. Refinancing and debt consolidation is a theme, but so is emotional spending. Stay grounded in your self-worth this season, maybe a little journaling would help, so that you don't mistakenly give away blessings that were meant for you. Overall, the main mantra for the season will be "ask and ye shall receive", so let's go out and make miracles happen.
