The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and the feeling of spring is strong in the air! This is now officially Taurus season, and it is time to nurture that you wish to grow, ground yourself, immerse yourself in beauty and pleasure of the senses and mind, and find new ways to be creative.
Venus, the planet of beauty, pleasure, and possessions, entered the fixed earth sign of Taurus on April 14, 2021 where it will transit through May 3, 2021. Venus is in its dignity while in Taurus and loves being in the sensuous, loving, and creative placement of Taurus. Venus in Taurus enables you to see your own value in how you can foster your self esteem, find new ways to earn money, and ground yourself in the beauty of nature. Taurus is very grounding energy and is the most connected with Mother Earth out of all of the earth signs: Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.
Mercury, the planet of commerce and communication, entered Taurus on April 19, 2021, where it will tour through May 3, 2021 when it enters the sign of Gemini for more than two months. Mercury in Taurus is practical. Many born with Mercury in Taurus have memories like a steel trap. This is excellent influence for getting practical with your financial plans, focusing on how you can be more creative, and build your self worth.
The Sun, which is ego and identity, entered Taurus on April 19, 2021 at 4:33 pm EDT, where it will transit through May 20, 2021 when it enters the mutable air sign of Gemini. Currently, The Sun, which is your heart core; Mercury, which rules your thoughts; Venus, which represents love, desire, and finances; and Uranus, the planet of innovation and chaos, are all transiting in the fixed earth sign of Taurus.
The energy has shifted much since the Aries season. It is not as fiery, and it is very creative energy for all of us to work with, however bear in mind that all of the personal points in Taurus will square Saturn in Aquarius, which is a reality check of how you can be more practical in your spending, your time, and your resources yet innovative and futuristic at the same time.
This is a good time for all of us in that earlier in the year there was a robotic pace with so much emphasis on Aquarius in the New Age of Aquarius. It has brilliant possibility for learning and technology; but, it can feel nonstop and impersonal. The Pisces season had a lot of heavy emotions and endings, as we prepared for the potent New Moon in Aries at the world point. This New Moon in Aries at 22 degrees of the Cardinal Fire sign of Aries propelled many of us forward in new directions, as we all reconcile the Saturn/Pluto conjunction that occurred last January at 22 degrees of Capricorn. This legendary Saturn/Pluto conjunction that occurred last January of 2020 changed and eliminated many structures in our lives and in the world. As of recent, many are taking the story to another level, imitating new beginnings, moves, breakups, new relationships, and pivotal life change.
On April 22, 2021, Venus meets up with Uranus at 9:01 pm EDT at 10 degrees of the fixed earth sign of Taurus. With Uranus cycles, you can expect the unexpected. This is highly creative, romantic, and fun. This is an excellent opportunity for networking and meeting people and financial circumstances can come out-of-the-blue.
Perhaps you meet a new romantic partner or do something fun and exciting. It can potentially be chaotic in existing relationships; but, the moon in Virgo makes supportive aspects that day, and it is likely more fun and inspiring tone to the day.
On April 23, 2021, there is a big planetary change, as Mars, the planet of action, ego strength, and courage, exits the sign of Gemini and enters the Cardinal water sign of Cancer, where it will transit until June 11, 2021. Mars in Cancer is in its fall position, as it is exalted in the opposite sign of Capricorn. It is still in a cardinal sign, which are action oriented. Mars in Cancer is in harmony with all of the planets transiting in Taurus.
On April 24, 2021, Mercury meets up with Uranus, the higher octave of Mercury, at 2:42 am EDT. This can bring some very unexpected news. With Uranus cycles, whatever you think it is, it will be something different. This is is brilliant for brainstorming, networking, marketing, and writing in all forms. On April 25, 2021, Venus forms a challenging influence to Saturn, planet of restrictions. Although Venus loves being in Taurus, maybe there are some reality checks around what you are creating in your life. Perhaps, there are some reality stops around partnerships. Mercury spars with Saturn later in the morning of April 25, 2021 at 7:58 am EDT.
This is an excellent aspect for laborious work that requires a lot of concentration. However, it can be potentially restricting when it comes to others. There are still some really beautiful aspects, and reality checks can be helpful in solidifying your creation. Venus, the planet of love and desire, meets up with Mercury at 6:19 pm EDT. Write down and say out loud what makes you happy, and what you wish to really have. This is an aspect of love, kindness, and creativity. Many musical people have this influence.
On April 27, 2021, Pluto, the planet of endings, evolution, power struggles, and transformation, stations retrograde at 4:04 pm EDT at 24 degrees and 48 minutes of the Cardinal earth sign of Capricorn. We feel the station five days before and five days after.
This could bring many turning points and endings in our lives. There can be huge emotional stirrups, volcanos, and violence with Pluto stations. There can also be incredible empowerment, and a sense of what you wish to release and purge. This is a critical time, as May will prove to be a highly busy month for all. Try to get accomplished as you can with all of the planets still direct.
