Welcome to Taurus season, babes! Represented by both the Empress and the Hierophant in tarot, Taureans know how to enjoy the finer things in life. This Venus-ruled sign is perhaps the most indulgent of the zodiac, catering to all five senses and inhabiting a "treat yourself" mindset, despite their proclivity to stubbornness and dislike of change. Some may call them lazy. Or, perhaps, they have simply mastered the concept of working smarter instead of harder -- and playing just as well. Taurus is a fixed sign (hence the stubbornness) and is depicted by a bull. Be careful where you tread with this sign and their loved ones. You know what they say happens when you mess with the bull...
Locate where you have Taurus in your natal chart to identify where its influence will be highlighted most for you these next few weeks. For example, I have a Taurus stellium in the 8th House, so self, communication, and romance, as well as my transformation within them, will be themes to focus on.
Eclipse season all begins during this time, and a few planets go retrograde. A few transits to watch out for:
Apr 20th - Juno enters Pisces
Apr 23rd - Last Quarter Moon in Aquarius
Apr 29th - Pluto turns retrograde in Capricorn + Mercury enters Gemini
Apr 30th - Pallas enters Taurus + Partial New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus

May 11th - Jupiter semi-square Uranus in Taurus

Now, without further ado, let’s find out what the signs may experience during this season.
Taurus | Virgo | Capricorn
This season may require you to make some changes, Earth signs (I know, that's the last thing you want to hear/read), but know that it will be for your benefit. Some of you have been stuck where you're at and not making any real, purposeful moves, causing you to create strife where there doesn't need to be. Some of you are clinging to your old ways instead of embracing an adjustment period, because even though you are unhappy with your current situation, at least you know what to expect from it. Unfortunately, that is also causing you to stifle your growth and preventing you from living a life you truly desire.
It's time to put yourself out there and start taking the risks that can help bring you closer to to achieving your goals and dreams. Try something new, something you've always wanted to do but never got around to doing. Step outside of your comfort zone - and don't be afraid to make a fool of yourself. Success rarely happens without mishaps, nor being able to laugh at yourself when you stumble. The only constant thing in this life is change, babe. Otherwise, it's complacency, and then, are you really living?
Significant placements: Libra, Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Aquarius, Gemini
Significant numbers: 2, 4, 7, 11, 222, 444, 777, 1111
Affirmation: I am fully connected to my life's purpose and I am taking the right steps everyday.
Gemini | Libra | Aquarius
This season, you are being encouraged to focus on your spirituality, Air signs - however that looks to you. You may just be starting out on your journey, or you may have already gone through several awakenings. No matter where you are in life, listen to your intuition. Ask questions and try to see beyond the mundane and day-to-day activities. Wealth and romance may be on your mind. Get clear on what each of these look like for you and where they fit into your life. These elements will grow and flourish the more you focus on what you want, as well as what will satisfy your wants and needs. The more you tap into your innate abilities and follow your inner guidance, the more you open yourself up to receiving. Try not to follow the beat of another drum, and follow yours instead.
While this reading is intended for Taurus season, it is timeless. Attuning to yourself is not a one-and-done task. Pay attention to what you learn over the course of these next few weeks and how it can be applied in the coming months and year. Trust yourself to do the best you can with what you already have, and watch yourself flourish.
Significant placements: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Significant numbers: 0, 3, 5, 12, 14, 000, 333, 555, 1212, 1414
Affirmation: I only allow positive people that want the best for me into my life.
Pisces | Cancer | Scorpio
What drives and motivates you, Water signs? You're being asked to attune to your strengths and identify your weaknesses, and harness the student within you. As much as we may like to think we know everything, that is an impossibility. Humans cannot know everything there is to know about all the topics that has spanned human existence - and beyond. There is always, always something to be learned.
This season, find something that you're passionate about and makes you think further than the basic needs of human survival. Learn. Take a new class, find a guide, have a discussion or civilized debate with others about a topic that interests you. Try to see from outside of your own perspective. Then, take what you've learned and apply it into your life as you see fit. As you seek out your studies, be mindful of egocentricity. There is always room for growth and expansion if you allow it.
Significant placements: Cancer, Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Significant numbers: 3, 4, 7, 12, 13, 333, 444, 777, 1212, 1313
Affirmation: I only focus on what is truly essential in making me happy.
Aries | Leo | Sagittarius
This season, you're being called to bring balance and purification back into your life, Fire signs. It's time to clean house and release those heartbreaks and old relationships once and for all. You may have the chance to connect with someone that has true soulmate potential, possibly even someone from your childhood or a past life, as well as achieve all of the material wealth and success you long for. But, something or someone is holding you back and preventing you from achieving the life you desire, with the connection you crave. It's quite possible that you're the one standing in your own way.
Do whatever it is you need to do to get yourself re-centered. Journal, clean your space, smoke cleanse, perform a cord-cutting ritual, burn those pictures (safely, of course)...release the old so that you can move forward and regain clarity. You must make room for the blessings coming your way.
Significant placements: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

Affirmation: Happiness begins with me alone. I have the power to create my own happiness.
