As we make our way through the warm and abundant spring, we get ready to welcome our next zodiac season in the sign of the Taurus. Kicking off on April 20th, the Taurus season is all about regaining balance in your life and establishing more of a set routine. As a result, this is often deemed as a time of pacing yourself, grounding your energy more, and making plenty of time to pamper yourself along the way.
As we enter their season, this Taurus energy is beaming all around us for all Zodiac signs and is likely to affect us in a number of different ways. So to give you a better idea of what you can expect to feel for the next several weeks, today, we’re going to talk all about the Taurus season.
We’re going to cover Taurus’s personality traits, ruling element, planetary influence, and some of the key energies that the other Zodiac members can expect to feel while we linger in their sign. So, without further ado, let’s dive in and get started.
Taurus Personality Overview
Starting with their personality, the Taurus sign is most known for their calm, patient, and hard-working nature. Often considered to be the mother of the Zodiac due to their wise, patient, and nurturing nature, the Taurus is focused on all things grounding and stability. They are excellent workers, live by a routine, and always do things their way, even if it takes them longer.
On top of that, they are also incredibly generous and patient with those around them and will always lend a helping hand if they can. Aside from this, the Taurus is also incredibly hard-working. They are diligent, precise, and will stop at nothing to reach their goals, even if it may take them a little longer to get there. Unlike the Aries, the Taurus is never in a hurry to reach the finish line and understands the importance and value of a slow, steady approach to achieving their goals.
However, outside of these general personality traits, with the earth as their element and the bull as their sign, Taurus can also be incredibly stubborn, which can cause them to be extremely inflexible at times. They are very firm in their beliefs and their values and often don’t like changing them as this can mess with their sense of stability and routine.
As a result, this can sometimes make them difficult to understand in relationships and may result in them butting heads with their partner without resolution. This can also make it hard for them to want to listen to people in times of anger or stress and could have them appear quite cold to those around them. For that reason, the Taurus would do well to work on keeping more of a level head in times of heated discussion and understand that just because someone else has a different belief than them doesn’t mean it has to be an argument.
Aside from their general personality, when it comes to their planetary ruler, Taurus is ruled by the planet of Venus. Known as the planet of love, art, and beauty, the energy of Venus is greatly reflected in the core of the Taurus personality, as Venus is often considered to highlight the values of our soul. She allows you to find balance and to live a life that revolves around finding pleasure and fulfillment in all that you do, which is exactly what the Taurus enjoys most.
With this planet as their ruler, this can allow the Taurus to find beauty in the mundane, balance in the chaos, and ensure they are living their best life through it all. Not to mention, this is what often drives the Taurus to fill their lives with things of comfort and balance, such as a home filled with cozy items, a well-paying job, or a career plan set in stone. Overall, this allows the Taurus to feel more in control and grounded in their life, which can greatly affect their overall mindset and mood in their day-to-day life.
Lastly, since Venus is also considered to be the planet of beauty and luxury, this likely influences the Taurus in their need for inner peace and stability. The Taurus sign greatly values self-care and self-enriching practices. This warm and tender influence from Venus’s vibrant aura is also likely what plays a large part in the Taurus’s natural mother-like qualities, allowing them to be kind friends, gentle lovers, and a natural body to lean on in times of turmoil.
Next, aside from their planetary ruler, the Taurus is also deeply influenced by their elemental sign: earth. Known as the element of stability, the influence of this element is believed to contribute to the hard-working and independent nature of the Taurus. With that said, Earth signs are known to be incredibly practical with incredible self-control.
Much like the grounded earth below us with its many elements and energies in balance, earth signs value security and stability in all that they do. This allows them to craft and build new foundations from a steady level and allows them to truly chase after their wildest dreams.
As a result, earth signs are naturally focused and tend to move at their own pace. The mindset of the earth sign is a slow but steady approach to achieving their dreams, and they are not wrong. A slower approach allows the Taurus to set small, meaningful goals that keep them motivated. This allows them to see the results of their efforts over time and maintain a steady and clear approach to reaching new heights.
However, while the earth element can certainly contribute to the hard-working personality of the Taurus, it can also make them very resistant to change and can contribute to their stubbornness when presented with changes that they didn’t quite plan out.
They can be pessimistic in times of failure and be incredibly over-critical of themselves. Not to mention, since they are very focused on working hard, despite their balanced mindset, the Taurus can sometimes struggle with the inability to take a break. Taurus can sometimes find themselves feeling burnt out when they push themselves too hard and will need to be better at maintaining a true balance to keep their head level.
Next, on top of their ruling planets and elemental sign, each Zodiac sign also has a symbol that they are represented by that pays homage to their overall energy. For the Taurus, this symbol is represented by the bull, which is a great reflection of the heart of the Taurus.
Throughout time, this bull was often considered to be the animal of both love and strength. While very strong and intense when they need to be, the bull also can be incredibly gentle and will happily keep to themselves unless otherwise provoked. With its mighty horns, the bull is also incredibly ambitious in chasing after their goals and will stand their ground in times of difficulty no matter what.
While they may sometimes appear bull-headed, their drive and strength allow them to work incredibly hard, stand firm in their beliefs, and defend what they care for while also maintaining a kind heart. As a result, this symbol greatly reflects the genuine and unique aura the Taurus holds and is what truly makes them a one-of-a-kind sign like no other.
How does the Taurus season affect other signs?
And lastly, now that we’ve gone over some of the key traits and correspondences of those born under the Taurus sign, we also wanted to talk about how this earth sign affects the rest of the Zodiac members while we linger in their sign.
With that said, while we linger in this earthy season, the Taurus is a natural at boosting your work ethic and focus. This can have the signs feeling more optimistic and ambitious for their future as their career and personal projects likely come front and center. However, unlike the Aries season that encourages you to charge ahead full-speed, the Taurus is more efficient and steady in the way they navigate their goals and keeps a productive approach without overworking themselves.
Because of this, the signs may find themselves prioritizing more of a routine this season. Gone are the days of spontaneity and endless overtime at work, as the signs begin to focus more on stability in their life. As a result, this is a time of a slow but steady pace as all the signs begin to level out things in their life and look at their goals in a more long-term way.
Now, while hard work is certainly a key aspect of the Taurus season, it doesn’t mean it isn’t also a time of pampering and nurturing for your soul as well. Since Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and pleasure, this is also a great time to focus on improving yourself and your life in a variety of ways. Whether that’s developing more of a self-care routine, pampering yourself with a massage treatment, or redoing your environment to fill it with more things that feed your soul, now is an excellent time to focus on upgrading your life in the way you see fit.
To go along with this, you may find yourself feeling especially connected to nature this season and may want to be in it more often than before. This could have the signs seeking more outdoor activities, such as sports or nature hikes. More than anything, Taurus loves to find beauty in simplicity, so spending time outside may just inspire the Taurus to channel more artistic creativity, become more connected, and help to ground their mood overall.
Lastly, since the Taurus does have quite the stubborn streak, don’t be surprised if you find yourself feeling a little more stubborn than usual this month as well. As a result, you may have a hard time accepting criticism or input from those around you and could find yourself feeling awfully defensive when someone approaches you with a different opinion.
You will need to do what you can to keep your cool and remember that just because someone has a different opinion than you doesn’t mean that they are attacking you. Try to keep a level head and hear them out this season if you want to avoid conflict.
Overall, the Taurus season is a powerful time for grounding, finding stability in your routine, and hard but steady work. For that reason, if you’ve been looking for the perfect opportunity to regain balance in your life, steady your energy, and readjust yourself to new goals, now may be a perfect time. More than anything, this earth sign is bound to help you find your balance this month and help you to reach and achieve your dreams like never before.
Happy Taurus season!
