Taurus Season: April 20 – May 20 ~
Welcome to the season of the bull. After passing through the fiery & passionate flames of Aries Season, we are now ready for a new chapter where we can begin to put our dreamiest ideas to the test by finding practical ways of actually making them happen in the here & now.
Taurus is sign that loves to create comfort & harmony and prefers to take its sweet time to create quality things that are built to stand the test of time.
This is the time of the year when we can begin to take the sparks of what could be and start to make them real. There is still so much hard work to be done, and anything that is not truly meant to be ours just might crack under the pressure.
With 4 planetary retrogrades still going on, the process of achieving the next level of your goals is meant to be slow, steady, and very deliberate now. Whether you are thinking about how to increase the flow of love, admiration, money, wisdom or power into your life or career, nothing truly worth having will come without a solid thought process behind it.
Some of the most major upcoming astrological events over the next month include:
- Pluto Retrograde – April 20 – September 28, 2017
- New Moon in Taurus – April 26, 2017
- Mercury Retrograde Ends – May 3, 2017
- Full Moon in Scorpio – May 10, 2017

ARIES / ARIES RISING
(March 21 – April 19)
After a month of exploring your relationship with your lovely self and others in your close circle, it’s time to go after what you really want. With the Sun now zooming through Taurus and your 2nd house of Values, you will be exploring what matters to you most in your life + career, as well as how you’re going to get it. This is an excellent time to formulate a wish list of what your perfect life + career would be like, and then get ready to begin working on bringing it into your life in the future.
Meanwhile, the Full Moon in Scorpio will land in your 8th house of Business. Once you know what you want, you’ll need to release any limiting beliefs or insecurities that have been keeping you from getting it in the past. What are some ways your financial picture could be more secure? Any issues that are keeping you from attaining a healthier flow of abundance & security will come up to the surface now to be released and transcended. By the time this month is over, you’ll be ready and raring to go tap into your network to start turning your wish list into a reality! << Back to Top
TAURUS / TAURUS RISING
(April 20 – May 20)
Happy Birthday, Taurus! After a month of diving deeper into your psyche and contemplating what your life has been about up until this point (and possibly letting go of some things that are no longer a good fit), it’s your time to party! With the Sun now shining down in your sign, this month is all about celebrating you & your true identity. It’s time to come out of your comfort zone and show your amazing skills and talents to the world while getting even clearer on your mission and what makes you so special. Be bold & ask for a raise, or launch a new branch of your business that will make your work life even more exciting & rewarding.
On the flip side, the Full Moon will be landing in your opposite sign of Scorpio. As you begin to scale new heights, old fears may come up to the surface to remind you of what you need to leave behind in order to become this bolder & brighter version of YOU. Say goodbye to the dark drudgery that tries to tell you that you’re not good enough – especially if these are words coming from your close romantic or business relationship issues with other people. Whether it is possible (or not) for you two to truly get along, this will be a great time to get stronger in your own self-worth and break out of other people’s limiting expectations of you. << Back to Top
GEMINI / GEMINI RISING
(May 21 – June 20)
After a month of exploring new ways to give & receive in your community, you’re ready to re-visit your raison d’être (your reason for being & doing anything in life). With the Sun now heading through your 12th house of Mystical Pursuits, be prepared to go deeper. If there are things you’ve always wanted to accomplish in your life + career, now is the time to ask ‘Why not me? Why not now?’. You were made for greater things than getting stuck in a stale work environment or any other parts of your life that have become too small for your bright boldness. Use this time to contemplate your next move and feel into the reality you truly want to create. Don’t forget to dream big! And then, go a level bigger. :)
Meanwhile, the Full Moon will be landing in Scorpio and your 6th house of Daily Routines. As you begin to realize what you really do (or don’t) want from your life + career, you’ll want to take a look at the parts of your daily life, work & health habits that have been keeping you from setting yourself up for success & feeling your best. It’s time to put your bad habits behind you and learn to celebrate your body, mind & spirit in much more supportive ways. Just try not to beat up on yourself along the way – it’s never too late to clean up your diet, re-organize your routines, & get on a better track! << Back to Top
CANCER / CANCER RISING
(June 21 – July 22)
After a month of expanding your career and identifying new opportunities for growth & expansion, you’re ready to bring what you’ve learned out into your community. You have always been very good at understanding how others are feeling & knowing just how to nurture others, so who around you is in need of your special skills, and how can you be of help? With the Sun cruising through your 11th house of Community Affairs, you may just find that finding new ways of giving back to others can even create a rewarding new avenue for you to receive in return.
But first you may want to look into the reasons why you have been afraid to receive in the past. With the Full Moon falling in Scorpio and your 5th house of Creativity, it’s time to release any issues that have been keeping you from allowing yourself to simply have FUN. Life isn’t just about working, you know! Allow yourself to let go of the need to always be so productive so you can tap into a better give & take relationship with your to do list. As you plan things you want to do for work, don’t forget to schedule in some non-negotiable ways to allow yourself to let loose and celebrate the finer things in life, too! << Back to Top
LEO / LEO RISING
(July 23 – August 22)
After a month of exploring new horizons, meeting new people, and/or learning new ways of being & doing, it’s time to take the information you’ve downloaded and put it into your career. As the Sun floats through Taurus and your 10th house of your Career Legacy, you’re ready to expand on the things you want people to know you for, and put more meaning & purpose into your money-making process. You may feel ready to start something new, but be warned that this Retrograde Season will most likely require several revisions before you stumble on the right course of action for you. You’ll be better off looking back to uncover the things you loved & enjoyed in the past in order to bring more of these things into your current workflow and go from there.
On the flipside, the Full Moon in Scorpio will be landing in your zone of Home & Family. The trick right now is really about learning how to balance your personal life + career in ways that feel exciting and stable for you, which is something we all have to work on at some point, but this month it’s especially true for you. Is your living situation working well for you, or is it time for a change? Like I said, with this Retrograde Season, you will probably want to avoid rushing into a big move, but you can begin to release the smaller issues that have been causing you friction or tension back at home and learn to let go. << Back to Top
VIRGO / VIRGO RISING
(August 23 – September 22)
After a month of strengthening the ways you earn & manage your financial resources, the Sun is now streaming through your 9th house of Travel, Education & Spirituality. It’s time to seek out new ways of exploring & being in the world and expand your horizons in exciting ways. What have you been wanting to learn more about? Perhaps that means taking a class or going on a trip somewhere that has always intrigued you. The things you end up discovering now may even be able to help you make your career more meaningful next month (in Gemini Season) when the Sun moves into your Career Zone!
On the other end of this, the Full Moon will be falling in your 3rd house of Networking, which is more about tapping into your current circle of friends or associates and learning from one another. You might find that some of your connections are no longer serving you, or that you’ve grown tired of talking about the same things with the same people. This is a good month to allow others to do their own thing and focus on what lights YOU up the most. Your old friends & co-workers will most likely still be there for you when you get back from your explorations (and plus, you will even be able to have some interesting things to add to the conversation!). << Back to Top
LIBRA / LIBRA RISING
(September 23 – October 22)
After a month of exploring new ways to strengthen your relationships with others, it’s time to bring your focus back to your practical matters. This month, the Sun will be zooming through your 8th house of Shared Resources, helping you re-think and re-imagine how you earn your money and manage your finances. Perhaps its time to think about investing in yourself through a Roth IRA, or putting a budget in place to keep more of your money where it belongs – in your pocket! Just watch out for risky moves – with so many planetary retrogrades still going on, it’s not a good time to go all in on anything too major.
By the Full Moon in Scorpio, which falls in your 2nd house of Values, you may find that the things you used to want are only holding you back now. Every day you keep growing as a person, but your spending habits may have stayed the same. It’s time to let go of old expectations or ways of thinking and remind yourself of what really matters to you NOW, so you can re-set your course toward a more fulfilling destination – like financial freedom! << Back to Top
SCORPIO / SCORPIO RISING
(October 23 – November 21)
After a month of re-setting your daily routines and finding new & better ways to support yourself in life and work, it’s time to look more deeply into the company you keep. As the Sun scoots through your 7th house of Close Relationships, get back in touch with your support group and find healthier ways of relating to the people around you. Perhaps this means strengthening a romantic relationship, or teaming up with a business partner to create a joint venture that can help support you both. Just be sure to get clear on how you really want to be expressing yourself before you include others in the decision-making process.
As the Full Moon falls in your sign and your 1st house of Identity, things may start to get a bit intense. This will be a time to let go of the person you used to be and release any self-beliefs that have been keeping you from relating to others in healthier & more fulfilling ways. As the sign that rules transformation, you should be no stranger to the idea of metamorphasis. You are worthy of so much more than your previous self may have been led to believe, and it’s NEVER too late to change & grow in your understanding of yourself and foster healthier relationships with the people you surround yourself with! << Back to Top
SAGITTARIUS / SAGITTARIUS RISING
(November 22 – December 21)
After a month of finding new & exciting ways to bring more fun and creativity into your life, it’s time to focus on the way you’ve been treating yourself. As the Sun moves through your 6th house of Daily Routines for Work & Health, you’ll want to revisit the way you go about your day and make sure it’s working in your favor. Perhaps that means getting back on track with your yoga practice, being more mindful about the meals you make, or limiting your working hours so they no longer take over your personal life. With the right support system in place at home, you can go so much further in your work!
On the other hand, the Full Moon will be falling in your 12th house of Mystical Pursuits. This can be such a healing Full Moon for you, as you can finally let go of anything that has been freaking you out and begin to find more peace of mind. Nothing is usually as bad as you make it out to be, and you’ll be able to use this time to let down your guard and let go of any dark feelings that have been weighing on your mind so you can step back into the lighter & brighter side of life. << Back to Top
CAPRICORN / CAPRICORN RISING
(December 22 – January 19)
After a month of diving deeper into your home & family matters, I’ll bet you’re ready to bring more fun & enjoyment back into your life. With the Sun now sauntering through your 5th house of Creativity, this is the time to allow your sometimes overly strict demeanor to loosen up a bit and look to the more playful side of life. Instead of crowding your schedule with an endless list of to do’s, try lightening your load a bit and allowing more time to just BE, or maybe you just need to plan some non-negotiable time to go out on the town and have some fun. Try to treat your leisure time with as much urgency as you do your work projects and I think you will find that EVERYTHING will flow so much more sweetly for you this month. You may even come up with some extra creative ideas along the way!
With the Full Moon landing in your 11th house of Community, you will also want to take a deeper look at any issues that have been holding you back from showing up & sharing more of yourself with others. If there is some old drama leftover from your circle of friends, let it go (or let them go!) so you can come out of hiding with confidence. The world needs some more of that special magic that only you have to offer! << Back to Top
AQUARIUS / AQUARIUS RISING
(January 20 – February 18)
After a month of spreading your wings and finding new ways to network, collaborate, and celebrate your connections with others, it’s time to bring it back to your home turf. As the Sun moves into your 4th house of Home & Family, your focus will be brought to your comfort zone, security, and nurturing the people you love. Perhaps this means making your home more of a harmonious place to live, strengthening your ties with loved ones, or setting yourself up for a more secure future.
As the Full Moon falls in Scorpio and your 10th house of Career, you will also be asked to release any issues that have been holding you back from expressing yourself more fully in your career. Ultimately, it’s important for your home & work life to be in balance, and this moon will help you see all the ways that you have not been, so you can eventually discover a sweeter sense of serenity between the two. << Back to Top
PISCES / PISCES RISING
(February 19 – March 20)
After a month of diving deeper into your values and what you really want out of your life + career (and why), you’re ready to put yourself out there and be brave enough to actually ask for it. With the Sun moving through your active 3rd house of Networking, this month will be all about meeting new people and/or revisiting old connections and finding new ways to learn & share with one another. Stand strong in what you really want, and the universe will help deliver the people you need on your side to help you make it a reality.
With the Full Moon falling in Scorpio and your 9th house of Travel, Spirituality & Higher Education, you will want to release any desires to escape or constantly crave what you don’t have. If you look around you, I think you’ll find that you already have everything you need & more to help you create your dream life. You just need to learn how to use what you’ve got and make the most of it! << Back to Top
