Have you ever heard people refer to “Taurus Season” but not been sure what it means?

Well, Taurus season starts when the sun moves into Taurus and a number of other personal planets join it during the month-long transit of the sun through Taurus.

Taurus is an earth sign and brings a slow and steady grounded energy with perhaps a touch of stubbornness!


April 20-May 20

Ruled by: 


Ruling house: 

2nd – Natural Skills and Talents & Resources (I like to call it the entrepreneurial house)

Best things to focus on during Taurus Season:

Focusing on the financial foundations of the goals and actions that you have activated in Aries season.

Personal Planets in Taurus:

Mercury – doesn’t move into Taurus until the end of Taurus season on the 16th May 2024

Mercury in Taurus brings a slower but potentially stubborn approach to communications. ⁠

The best way to harness the Mercury in Taurus energy is to tune into your body and your heart for what you really want to say. I find that placing one hand on my belly and one on my heart helps me to do this.⁠

It’s a great time to take your time to express yourself and to question where you might be being stubborn for no good reason.

In business, you can have a grounded and practical communication style.

Venus – Venus moves into Taurus on the 30th April 2024

When Venus is in Taurus you might feel more sensual, magnetic, and more committed to your work.

It’s a good time to start or commit to new business relationships. You might find that you seek out more stability.

The way to harness Venus in Taurus energy is to focus on what makes you practical, dependable and stable.

Because Taurus loves quality and luxury watch out for overspending.

Where is Taurus in your chart?

To find Taurus in your chart you will first need to create a chart at astro.com if you don’t have it already.

Then you will want to look around the edge of the chart and find the Taurus Glyph.

Then look to which houses Taurus spans in your chart to see which areas of your life Taurus season is likely to play out in.

If you want an easy reference chart for the signs and houses register for my free Astrology Basics course.

In my chart below you can see that Taurus spans my 8th House of Sex, Power, The Underworld and Mysticism and Other People’s Money.

I’m always a bit nervous when I see the 8th house being activated I have to admit, I’ve had really good things happen to me during this time of year as well as really challenging things – either way it’s time to hold on and try to enjoy the ride!
