Taurus Season! A fixed and steadfast sign when the Sun moves through the sign Taurus and we all experience “Taurus season” for the next thirty days. Through Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, we strengthened our instinctual will; now that we’re moving into the second sign of the zodiac, we are moving from an awareness of that will and deepen exploring the theme of quality through the physical material world. In the sign Taurus, we deepen our connection to the physical body through the awareness of our physical senses–we desire quality scents, food, music, touch becomes essential to our experience. Taurus is an Earth sign ruled by the planet Venus, and for this very reason, the quality of material and physical experiences become utterly important and life-sustaining. After all, if we are to enjoy this human experience, isn’t it worth it, don’t we deserve to live a quality life? To pamper ourselves, to wear quality nail polish?
This season we have four planets: Pluto, Saturn, Venus, and Jupiter all going retrograde; which means that you’ll need to pause for a moment and allow things to fall where they may–pushing forward with plans won’t lead to anything other than frustration, delays, and bad timing. Allow the natural timing of events in your life to unfold with patience, understanding, and acceptance. All retrogrades are a beautiful time to rethink, revisit, and reorganize the past several months–to get clearer about your future.
