When are Taurus dates?

Taurus season officially starts April 19th or 20th depending on where you are on the planet. It is the second sign of the astrological calendar, following Aries, and lasts until May 20th when we then transition into Gemini season.

 


What are Taurus’ traits and personality?


Taurus is a fixed, earth sign, ruled by the planet Venus and represented by the symbol of the Bull. As we have learned from other fixed signs like Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, fixed sign traits tend to bring qualities of maintenance and stability while completing or actualizing what the Cardinal signs have started or set in motion.

It's a great time to therefore work within areas of structure during this time period. Another side of the Taurus personality as an earth sign, like Virgo and Capricorn, is that it brings very grounded energy with a solid foundation. “Slow and steady wins the race” has Taurus written all over it, as it brings loyalty, stability and practicality without any sense of rush or haste.

Although Taurus brings a “keeping it real” attitude to this time of year, with Venus as its ruling planet Taurus season also has a strong focus on physical beauty and also how we give and receive love. With spring in full bloom this comes as no surprise that we all might be feeling a bit more lustful for life and appreciative of the small beauties found in everyday life, like cherry blossoms, birds chirping, and sun-kissed afternoons.

 


How to benefit from and tap deeper into Taurus energy?


If it feels like time has been flying by the last weeks you aren't the only one, and with fiery Aries supporting that forward moving energy, not to mention having zero planets in retrograde, it’s no wonder. But now might be the perfect time to slow things down a notch and indulge in the grounding vibes Taurus season has to offer. Maybe use the coming weeks to focus more on a personal routine devoted to emotional, mental or physical wellness.

Now is also a more stable time to reflect on all that activity from the last four weeks in Aries and hone in on what of those fiery efforts you want to cement in moving forward, as Taurus energy is great for structure building with long lasting effects.

And to further benefit from Taurus’ grounding energy, take some time this upcoming astrological season to actually connect with the earth. Maybe take a barefoot nature walk or get your hands dirty and plant some herbs on your balcony, anything to connect with nature and feel its powerful, healing and grounding energy to further support you during Taurus season.
