Sun Moves into Taurus. Getting Grounded

Ahhh…. I love stepping into Taurus season. In Australia it marks the beginning of Autumn and a longing to go inside put on the open fire and get baking. I have learned much about the beauty of this sign in recent years, after having met some seriously awesome examples of Taurus being done extremely well.

This Taurus season is accentuated by the first of our eclipses across the Taurus/ Scorpio Axis. We encounter a partial solar eclipse on May 1st where we have an abundance of Taurus energy with the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Uranus and the North Node. This is a serious opportunity for setting new intentions around self worth, self love and our relationship to the material aspects of life, including money.

The full moon lunar eclipse then occurs in Scorpio on the 16th, bringing with it a need to face whatever may have been bubbling up inside us since the previous eclipses in November last year. I will be writing much more about this in my Full Moon in Scorpio workbook.

Energy levels start to rise as Venus and Jupiter move from Pisces into Aries this season. In fact it may feel more like an Aries season as we move into mid May than the previous Aries season did.

The ruler of Taurus, Venus is in Pisces, where she happily weaves her magic with Neptune and Jupiter in Pisces. But now, with the Sun, Uranus, Mercury, and the north node in Taurus, the theme to me for the first part of Taurus season at least, feels like a very sensual, creative, physical yet equally disruptive and transformative kind of energy.

Pisces and Taurus are creative, sensual energies. Pisces expresses this more emotionally, and Taurus does so in a more physical sense. With most of our planets falling into one of these two signs throughout most of this season, it will provide a beautiful launch pad for self-expression, creativity, and sensuosity. It is a time for treating our physical senses and basking unashamedly in what brings us pleasure.

Taurus and the experience of preparing, cooking, eating and sharing food are a match made in heaven. Physical nourishment abounds during this time, so go forth and bake that cake, cook that slow casserole, and share the food with family and friends. Whilst you are there, nourish your sense of hearing with the gift of beautiful music. Venus and beautiful music go hand in hand; whether you sing ( most Taureans I know have a great singing voice), play an instrument or bathe yourself in the delights of music, this is the time to do so to assist you in moving into a more relaxed state.

Taurus themes get turned up significantly with the New moon and partial solar eclipse occurring on May 1st at 6.28pm. This is the first eclipse of the year occurring along the Taurean and Scorpio axis. As with all new moons, the focus is on new beginnings but this is significantly accentuated now. On May 1st Mercury moves into in Gemini, and communication, ideas and connections become part of the theme, for a while at least, as he turns retrograde on the 10th.

Energy levels get turned up, and our motivations grow after the eclipse as Venus moves out of Pisces and into Aries, where she can exert her independence and self-reliance.

Uranus in Taurus is not comfortable, and this has been all about disrupting the Taurean sense and need for status quo. This can offer us of course, a genuine impetus toward change and to fully embrace it.
