We are now well into Taurus season (19 April – 20 May 2021) but what does this mean to you?
After the fiery energy of the Aries season, Taurus connects us with a slow, earthy and loving energy, helping us to pause, reflect, and pause.
The sun moving from Aries to Taurus means that the energy changes from Cardinal to Fixed.
Cardinal is linked to new things, moving energy, and inspired action. Fixed is linked to solid stability and focus.
Make no mistake though, Taurus is not about putting your plans on hold, it emphasizes moving forward in a way that is sustainable and practical.
All your plans, new beginnings, and fresh ideas can still gain momentum.
Taurus season only encourages you to remember self-care and well-being, to be ready to adjust the details of your personal and work routines, and to bring some grounding energy to everything you do.
Taurus still gets things done but in a more practical way.
Taurus is an Earth sign with Venus as the ruling planet. It is the first of the three earth signs of the zodiac and as mentioned, it is a fixed sign.
Those qualities mean that Taurus is here to provide reliability, grounding, and also the chance to have a few pampers.
It’s a great time to establish a routine that works for you, put your plans into constant action, and also carve out time for a little luxury.
I will share with you some of my favorite ways to honor the Taurus Energy in my life and routines as we go through the rest of April and May.
Cleanse your Throat Chakra
Taurus rules the face, neck and throat and it is a good idea to work to remove any energy blocks in your throat chakra to encourage free expression and a pure flow of energy.
- Try a visual meditation: Imagine blue light healing, bathing, and cleansing your throat area.
- Wear blue crystals (turquoise / sapphire) close to your neck.
- Try to sing, express yourself on paper, or by voice when you are alone.
- Make sure your communication is aware and honors your truth.
- Yoga poses such as chest expansion, cobra, neck rotations can help relieve tension in this area as well.
- Take care of your neck by making sure you have good posture while sitting at your desk. Make sure your eyes are level with the top of your monitor and that you are not hunched or bent over.
Mix Self-Care and Indulgence
Treat yourself in a way that actually nourishes your heart, body, mind and soul.
I love learning new recipes that are both healthy and decadent with a variety of ingredients or things I don’t normally spend time cooking for myself.
If you usually eat the same lunch or dinner, switch your favorites for something new and take the time to enjoy preparing it, and eating it.
Head to a farmer’s market or health store to get inspired by colors and scents.
Why not even make it extra special with a beautiful table setting? Or take yourself and a friend or partner on a picnic, and have your lunch outside in the fresh air.
Taurus is all about finding the magic in the mundane. You will find a way to celebrate the pleasures of the earth, while remaining strong and true to your needs.
Make a time for yourself where you might normally rush, for example in the shower or bath, or during your morning or wind routine.
Soak in a hot tub with essential oils, dry your skin in the morning, take the time to light a candle before bed, and write down the things you are grateful for.
If it is possible where you are now, book a massage or other therapeutic treatment.
If you find any of these things difficult to initiate, ask yourself why it is difficult for you to prioritize yourself?
Investing in your well-being will always benefit you, in the short and long term.
Reestablish Your Routines
Aries season can really ignite your creative fire to get things done, but Taurus season is all about being realistic and practical about your methods.
Get a notebook and some pens and write a solid, grounded plan for the next month for yourself. Include practical steps to achieve your goals and things you can do every day to proactively pursue your dreams.
For example, if your goals include things like “manifest a new home”, “write a book”, or “earn more money”, they are obviously big, life-changing dreams that are also a little vague.
You need to break these down into actionable steps for yourself to make them real!
You can find a way to increase your income a little this month and start looking at property listings and getting ideas for your vision board and meditations.
You can plan how you will write your book, divide it into chapters, and create realistic deadlines for yourself.
Make your dreams become tangible things you can work towards. When you do this, you send a message to the universe that you are serious!
Miracles can happen, but you have to be willing to align yourself with them.
Beware of the following:
Taurus energy can be stubborn and this particular Taurus season has some powerful planetary alignments, full of surprises and awakenings that can stir up your stubbornness even more.
Stay strong, steady, and grounded but also be open to whatever the universe is showing you.
Try to be curious and willing to embrace new perspectives and ideas, go with the flow and you’ll have a smoother ride.
The main message from the Taurus Season is — Be productive, take action and prioritize yourself!
You can practice the affirmations:
I am grounded and calm.
I am balanced and whole.
Abundance flows easily for me when I am grounded.
I connect with life with joy.
I know my innate potential.
I have absolute faith in my success.
