As an Earth sign, Taurus reminds us to stay grounded, plant deep roots, and soak in the beauty of nature. (It’s no surprise that Earth Day falls within this season!) On a more figurative level, this season reminds us to slow down and plant seeds for the future.
When Is Taurus Season?
Taurus season starts on April 20 and continues through May 20, when the sun enters fixed Earth sign, Taurus.
Taurus Season Characteristics
The Bull behind this sign is a symbol of practically, tenacity, and creativity. So, while Taurus season taps into a need for foundation, it also asks us to explore our desires and seek out indulgences. It’s a great time to “treat yo self.”
So what’s the downside of Taurus season? It’s slow. If you’re an on-the-go sign that likes to keep moving (we’re looking at you, Aries), Taurus season can make you feel like your life is at a standstill. But what it asks us to do is stay in the present and experience each moment without wondering what comes next.
Taurus may also trick you into over-indulgence—overeating, buying things you don’t need, or buying more expensive things in general.
Lastly, Taurus is famous for being stubborn. Keep your feet on your ground but your mind open.
