Taurus Season and the Solar Eclipse: Boundaries, Blooming, and Abundance by Heather Cohen

Both Taurus and Eclipse Season start on April 20th.

Moving into Taurus Season, we leave behind this Aries Season fireball pace. In Aries, we experience the spark of creation and all of the power and agency to make things happen to birth our dreams. However, in Taurus we slow down and actually do the day to day work of nurturing and tending to what we have created. We can become more in touch with our senses which is easy to do for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere as we move into Spring.

Flowers are blooming, birds are singing, and Taurus rules fecundity (fertility). Imagine The Empress Card in the Tarot - that's Taurus energy. Everything is fruitful and abundant, especially your business as Taurus rules business and banking! If you have Taurus Sun, Moon, or Rising, this will affect you the most, but everyone will feel it to some extent. (Keep reading for sign based horoscopes!)

It is the perfect time to slow down and smell the roses, to put your feet in the earth, to take long luxurious baths, to eat your favorite foods and drink your favorite wines (or beverage of your choice).

Taurus rules the throat so singing and expressing yourself artfully is well aspected. Venus is the ruling planet of both Taurus and Libra. In Taurus Venus is practical, sensual, and moves slowly with ease.  Taurus is an earth sign, so being out in nature is a must and investing deeply in a practical way into your life, business, family, projects, relationships. Taurus is in for the long haul with deep commitment and loyalty.

While Taurus by nature is slow, natural, practical, and in love with the simple pleasures, we have a few sneaky surprises this Taurus season.

For one, Taurus is the home to transiting Uranus. Uranus transits last 7-9 years so Taurus has been hosting Uranus for many years now, with just a couple of more to go, Uranus leaves Taurus in 2026. Uranus is the complete opposite energy to Taurus. Uranus known as "The Great Awakener" uses the element of surprise to "awaken" people in places they have been on autopilot. Uranus in Taurus is both a personal and collective energy.

On the collective level, which affects us all deeply, Uranus in Taurus shakes up our financial systems as Taurus rules finances. It makes us question what we value, as well as how we grow or buy or sell food as Taurus rules the earth/farming etc. Taurus also rules boundaries as all Earth signs do, so it will shake up the boundaries of land, as we are seeing in Ukraine and various other countries. On a personal level the same thing applies, but you will notice it in the parts of your chart ruled by Taurus. While Uranus can be jarring, the goal is truly to wake you up to a better life and a happier existence. Still these methods can be destabilizing in the moment.

Another exciting thing happening in the sky is a beautiful solar eclipse in Taurus, again Taurus is ruled by Venus. Venus is stationed in Pisces right now so she could not be more radiant or well placed for this huge new beginning. April 30 is the partial solar eclipse in Taurus. Eclipses tend to speed up change and with Uranus there are always surprises. Nonetheless this is a very positive eclipse and should help usher in brand new beginnings. Eclipses always come in pairs and so May 15 will be the coinciding lunar eclipse in Scorpio.
