Taurus season is here, and with it, we welcome beloved mercury in reggaeton and a powerful Lunar Eclipse on May 5th to shake us back into alignment. Our amiga Esoteric Esa has your horoscope for the season, so you can hone in themes that will support your evolution.
Taurus season brings the arrival of abundance. Feeling luxurious, amiga? It’s that Tauro energy influencing you to treat yourself and raise your vibration. Taurus is an Earth element in astrology, which is best known as the bull of the zodiac. Why would this Venus-ruled zodiac sign be represented by an animal that doesn’t seem so lavish?
A bull is dependable and strong, and their determination gives Aries a good run for their money. A Taurus and a Capricorn will embody what hard work looks like, but Taurus can also teach you what true self-care is. They understand relaxation to be a sacred ritual that many people overlook.
It’s a season of feeling driven and dedicated to yourself. Taurus season is major jefa energy. It’s your season, amiga! You’ll be feeling sensual and magnetic with this Taurus season energy, thanks to it being ruled by Venus. You can tap into the ability of using divine feminine sensuality as a powerful manifesting tool now through May 20th before Taurus season concludes. Venus is the planet of charm, beauty, and pleasure. This is a season best spent pampering yourself, and consider it a method of recharging your batteries.
Mercury retrograde is occurring now through May 14th in the sign of Taurus. Yes, during Taurus season. Before you head to the hills to isolate and avoid any human connection, relájate. Literally, a Taurus would tell you to “relax.” Honestly, in moments of crisis, a Taurus will keep you grounded and guide you through. Get you a Taurus baddie in your inner circle, y’all.
Back to Mercury in gatorade; this is a time of not avoiding major decisions. Situations involving your stability, such as finances and life transitions, will come up this retrograde because it’s happening in Taurus. This is a time of testing your true connection to your intuitive voice and analyzing the direction in life you desire to develop. Don’t hesitate to make risky moves during this retrograde because the reward is abundantly awaiting. As always, ask for a second opinion, read the fine print on the paperwork, and seek the appropriate counsel from professionals needed to make the best decisions for you.
Taurus season hosts a powerful Scorpio lunar eclipse on May 5th to help you symbolically rebirth areas of life you feel are ready for endings. It’s going to get honest, raw, and uncomfortable in May. Discomfort is the seed of growth. Dig deep and bloom, chula.
Read on for your Taurus season horoscope for both your sun and rising signs.
