taurus season horoscopes april may 2023

Taurus Season 2023 begins on April 20th, making its start date wedged right between the ultra potent Aries Solar New Moon Eclipse and Mercury Retrograde. All of this Eclipse and Retrograde energy is going to flavor the grounded, earthy season of the Bull, guiding us to transform, awaken, and shift our lives in a higher and more aligned direction.

Taurus Season always favors small, methodical, and practical steps that are rooted in long-term strategies rather than short-term ones. We are asked to look to the future and to ensure we are creating a solid foundation as we journey towards our goals and dreams.

Mercury in Retrograde until May 14th, will assist with this, guiding us to reflect, move slowly, and learn from our past.

Taurus Season also brings a Lunar Eclipse on May 5th in the sign of Scorpio. This Eclipse holds some potent and personal energies that will be guiding us to go within. Something may come to an end or we may find ourselves needing to let go of outdated relationships, beliefs, or habits.

On May 16th, right before Taurus Season comes to an end, Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, moves into Taurus creating a new cycle of energy. Jupiter in Taurus is destined to bring an expansion of abundance and changes to the finance industry.

On May 21st, the Sun wraps up its journey in earthy Taurus for the air sign of Gemini.

Let’s now take a look at your horoscope for Taurus Season April 20-May 21, 2023. You can read for both your Sun and Rising Sign:

Taurus Season Horoscopes April-May 2023


Taurus Season begins right on the tail of the Aries New Moon Solar Eclipse. This powerful Eclipse, will be a rebirth moment for you and it’s likely new opportunities will come your way. As your season comes to an end and the Solar Eclipse energies begin to integrate into your being, you may have to turn your attention to your health and well-being. Be sure you are listening to your body and not burning the candle at both ends. Your body will speak if something is out of alignment in your life. As you approach the Scorpio Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on May 5th, financial matters may come up for your consideration. This is a good time to get your finances in order, especially regarding investments or debts. The energy of this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse could feel quite intense and while money issues may be on the table, you may also just be feeling a lot of emotions bubbling beneath the surface. If this resonates, be sure to take the time to dig deep and uncover what is really troubling you. There is the potential for some breakthroughs and ah-ha moments here if you are willing to do the work. Mercury will also be in retrograde during Taurus Season from April 21 until May 14/15. Mercury can create a slow-down effect, but it’s a great time to continue working on all of those projects that you have started, but have not yet finished. Jupiter, the planet of expansion and abundance will be on your side with this too, helping to expand your vision and bring opportunities your way, but by the end of Taurus Season on May 16th, Jupiter will enter Taurus, and this abundant energy will leave with it. Make the most of Jupiter’s time in Aries while you can!


Happy Birthday, Taurus! It is a big and busy season for you, but the Sun is in your corner, allowing you to shine bright! Your Season begins on the tail end of the Aries Solar Eclipse, which may have brought some surprising information or new revelations your way. Eclipses tend to bring fated events that push us further along on our soul path. They are like quantum leaps into a new state of consciousness. Think about the highest vision for yourself and then act from that place, whatever has come up for you. You may feel some intensity brewing as you move towards the Lunar Eclipse on May 5th. This is a little bit more of a challenging Eclipse and could bring an ending to something you have been working with for the last 18 months or so. This Lunar Eclipse could also trigger relationship issues, guiding you to focus on your connections with others, or alternatively, you may find someone leaning on you for support. Just be clear with your boundaries, and all will be well. Mercury will be in retrograde for most of your season and in your sign, which means you are going to feel the effects strongly. Mercury Retrograde in your sign can create some mental fogginess and get you reflecting or pondering over the past. You can’t change the past, but there may be something you can still learn from it. On May 16, Jupiter, the planet of expansion, abundance, and silver linings moves into your sign, allowing you to reap the benefits of its fortunate energy! Having Jupiter in your sign can expand your life in new and interesting ways. It can also help you to focus on the bigger picture, allowing you to see things from a more worldly perspective. While the energy of Jupiter is considered a positive omen, it is always a good idea to be mindful of overindulging or doing anything in excess when it visits your sign. Enjoy your birthday season,, and be sure to take the time to celebrate yourself!


After the fiery heat of Aries Season, Taurus Season brings a grounded slower pace. Mercury, your ruling planet, will station retrograde early in the season on April 21st, guiding you to collect your thoughts and perhaps ponder the journey you have traveled. This reflective space should be a welcome change to the fast pace of the last few weeks, so be sure to decompress and clear thoughts and anxieties that you no longer need to hold onto. The Scorpio Lunar Eclipse on May 5th may trigger you to reevaluate how you choose to spend your time and what projects you wish to dedicate your time to. This has been an ongoing theme for some time, but this Eclipse indicates a turning point or perhaps a transition point where you can act on what is calling your soul. As this is a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, you may have to let go of a project or two. It could also be that a project you have been working on for some time comes to a natural close, allowing you to transition into something else. Your health may also be your focus as the Sun moves into Taurus. This would be a great time to get a check-up and take care of any nagging symptoms. The energy of the season is also supporting you to reward yourself for all of your hard work! Take a break, book a spa day, and turn off your devices. Do whatever feels the most relaxing and indulgent to you. Taurus season is all about pleasure, but the path of pleasure can quickly lead to over-indulgence or prioritizing short-term gains over long-term gains. You have a sharp mind, but just be mindful of this as you journey through the season, especially when it comes to focusing on your priorities.


The Aries Solar Eclipse on April 19/20 is a powerful one for you, and as we begin Taurus Season, you may be riding the high-vibrational waves of whatever this Eclipse brought into your world. This Solar Eclipse may also trigger thoughts around your purpose. You may feel called to shift directions, especially when it comes to your career. Or alternatively, you may just be pondering how to create more meaning out of your day-to-day routine. This Eclipse is a door opener, so set some intentions and see what flies in. As we begin Taurus Season, Mercury stations retrograde on April 21st. Mercury Retrograde can create some mentally sluggish energy, but this may be good! When we feel mentally sluggish, we are called to go within and work from our more intuitive senses, and this can be very powerful, especially for you, Cancer. Your intuitive senses are likely to be extra sharp during this time and may guide you to peel back layers that are holding you back when it comes to living your purpose or finding that meaning you are craving. The Scorpio Lunar Eclipse on May 5th, brings some heavy energy. If you feel this, it could be a sign that you are taking on too much or perhaps not allocating enough time for pleasure and fun. The Moon is your ruling planet, so you will always feel the Eclipse energies strongly, but this is a good time to create more balance in your life. This Eclipse is also triggering matters of the heart, so a relationship may come to an end, or you may find yourself feeling differently about a relationship situation in your life. Information may also be revealed, changing how you feel about a person. There is a chance here for a deeper love to emerge, but it could also be a situation where you finally decide that you deserve better or perhaps are not being surrounded by the best examples of love.


The Solar Eclipse on April 19/20 is one to watch for you as you are closely connected to the energies of the Sun. This Eclipse technically falls in Aries Season, but its effects will spill into Taurus Season, which begins the day following the Eclipse. The Aries Solar Eclipse may see you traveling overseas, or perhaps a new opportunity may open up that will expand your way of thinking. This Eclipse is going to be a door-opener, but for you, it seems to be a mind-opener too. You are being introduced to new people, new ways of being, and new worlds you may not have been exposed to before. With your mind expanding to new levels, you will see this trickle down to all areas of your life. You are changing the way you think, and what you believe to be possible, and changes will follow because of this. This Aries Eclipse is part of a new cycle that we will be working with until 2025, so it will take time for this expansive energy to change and transform your life. While you do have this incredible expansive energy unfolding thanks to the Eclipse, Mercury is in retrograde from April 21st onwards. Mercury Retrograde can sharpen our intuition but also create mental fogginess. With your mind opening to new levels for the first time, it may be confusing to know what to think, how to proceed, and the best way to move forward. If you feel indecisive during Taurus Season, take it slow. You will find it beneficial to think about the long-term and to take small, methodical, and practical steps. Racing ahead or leaping into things may not work in your favor under this energy. As we reach May, we are greeted with the Scorpio Lunar Eclipse on the 5th. This Lunar Eclipse holds an intensity and may trigger deep emotions that need to come up and out for clearing. Your home and family life may be at the center of this Eclipse, but it is an opportunity to create a loving and more supportive environment.


Taurus Season begins on the back end of the Aries Solar Eclipse. This Solar Eclipse is powerful, and its effects will continue to be felt for the coming weeks. This Eclipse may bring some important decisions that need to be made. You may find yourself dealing with a difficult, yet necessary situation. It could be that you are finally called to act on something that has been unstable or has needed your attention for some time. Your finances may also be highlighted under this Eclipse too, and it does feel very positive! Stay open to the abundance of the Universe, as it seems to be on your side. Taurus Season tends to bring slower energy, but this blends well with your earthy Virgo qualities. This slow down will give you a chance to catch your breath and make time for pleasure. Taurus Season is always reminding us to stop and smell the roses and enjoy the company of those we love, so hold this close to your heart during the Season! Mercury, your ruling planet, will station retrograde on April 21, which will also add to the slowdown of energies. Mercury Retrograde can bring some mental fogginess, but this is only so we can go within and listen to our quieter, more subtle senses. You can also channel this Mercury Retrograde energy into brushing up on your skills or a topic you want to know more about. Learning and absorbing new information from the world around you is a great way for you to channel this retrograde energy. The Scorpio Lunar Eclipse on May 5th comes towards the end of the season and carries some intensity. This Scorpio Eclipse may bring some closure around a situation that has been troubling you for some time. You may find yourself needing to have a difficult conversation or needing to communicate your needs. Be clear and to the point, as this will help avoid confusion or miscommunications.


The start of Taurus Season is wedged right between the Aries Solar Eclipse and the start of Mercury Retrograde. This transition point into the season of the Bull will bring intensity, and strong energies will course through the cosmic skies, turning your attention to your relationships. As a Libra, you are very good at thinking about others and imagining yourself in their shoes. You are always concerned with what is fair and just, and are very caring in your approach. Under this Aries Solar Eclipse, however, you may find yourself needing to be firm in your boundaries and with what you wish to tolerate. Communication will be key here, so think about what you mean, and then be clear with how you express it to others. While you may struggle with a relationship, there is a good chance that this struggle could lead to a deeper and more meaningful connection. You may even find yourself looking to take a relationship to the next level. Eclipses tend to come in pairs, so the partner to this Eclipse will be the Scorpio Lunar Eclipse on May 5th. This Eclipse will trigger issues relating to your self-worth. These self-worth issues may be connected to the relationship issues you experienced under the Solar Eclipse. While the Solar Eclipse energies are likely to be seen manifesting in your physical world, the Lunar Eclipse is more subtle in its approach and is something you will likely only feel on an internal level. Under this Lunar Eclipse, you may be drawn to go within, and reflect on where self-esteem or self-worth issues may be showing up for you. The Lunar Eclipse could also stir issues relating to your finances and income. You may also find a project or job you have been working on comes to an end. If that is the case, have faith that a new door will soon open, leading you to something more aligned with a higher sense of self-worth and self-love. Libra, you are so good at protecting and caring for the needs of others, but under the Taurus Sun, and especially as we get into May, you will have to bring the attention back to you.


Taurus Season brings an Eclipse in your sign on May 5th. This will be a Full Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse. This Full Moon Eclipse will be triggering a transformation that has been unfolding over the last 1.5 years. This transformational journey has been triggered by the recent lineup of Eclipses that have all fallen in Taurus and Scorpio. Scorpio, is of course, your sign, but Taurus rests opposite you on the zodiac wheel, making those Eclipses significant too. In fact, when the Sun shines in Taurus, it beams right back down to you due to your position in the cosmos. This reflective beam that is shining your way will bring a focus to your relationships and how you choose to interact with others. This is not just your romantic relationships, but all the relationships you keep in your life. Taurus Season in general, allows you to feel more open and connected to others, and this will be amplified in 2023 as right before the Sun shifts into this earth sign, we have a powerful Aries Solar Eclipse. If you have been dealing with a difficult relationship situation, this Eclipse can bring some fresh energy, guiding you to look at things differently or perhaps shift your perspective to something brighter. You may feel more connected to yourself at this time too, allowing the idea that you are your most important relationship to feel more believable. While the Aries Eclipse technically falls in Aries Season, its intensity means we will feel all through April. By the time we reach May however, we will be feeling the Lunar Eclipse vibrations moving in. As mentioned earlier, there is another Eclipse in Scorpio on May 5th. This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is part of this transformative journey you have been moving through. This Eclipse is going to trigger your need to get back to yourself, to focus on your health and well-being, and to make sure you are your biggest support. It’s energy is deep and will help to uncover all that is blocking you from realizing your full worth and potential.


Taurus Season begins on the tail end of the powerful Aries New Moon Solar Eclipse. This is one of the biggest cosmic events of 2023, so its definitely going to be something we will feel well into Taurus Season. This Solar Eclipse will bring some lightness into your life. It is going to open doors, bring new opportunities, and hopefully, get you excited about life! You can really channel the energy of this Eclipse to bring more joy, abundance, and opportunity into your life. Use it to your advantage by setting intentions, putting yourself out there, and reaching out for those opportunities you have always wanted. Doors can open under this Eclipse and you are in one of the prime spots in the zodiac to receive its blessings. While the energy around this Eclipse does feel uplifting, it does carry some intensity too. Eclipses tend to bring transformative events or events out of the blue that shift our life direction in some way. They can also bring awakenings and ah-ha moments that can change our way of thinking or being. This Eclipse may bring the energy of change into your life, and that could be difficult to adjust to, especially at first. Taurus Season also brings another Eclipse on May 5th. This Eclipse is definitely the heavier of the two and is a Scorpio Full Moon Lunar Eclipse. This Lunar Eclipse will trigger us on a deeper and more internal level. It’s likely that whatever this Eclipse brings is something we will be dealing with in private or within the confides of our own mind, body, and heart. A secret could be revealed under this Lunar Eclipse, or perhaps you just feel guided to go within and unlock some of the emotions, thoughts, or feelings you have hidden or tucked away. You may find yourself looking over the past, and reflecting on the journey you have traveled. This is a very reflective Eclipse for you, and this will be heightened by Mercury Retrograde which will be in full swing by the time the Scorpio Eclipse arrives. Overall, Taurus Season is going to be a transformative one for you. It is best to move slowly and to focus on building a solid foundation with anything new that arises.


Taurus is a fellow earth sign so this Season always jives well with your soul. You will feel more grounded and connected to the energies of the cosmic sky, and any intensity that came up during fiery Aries Season will feel easier to manage. As the Sun shifts into Taurus, Mercury will enter retrograde on April 21st. This is the first retrograde planet we have had since January, so we will feel a slow down effect taking place, allowing us to digest and integrate all that has transpired. Mercury Retrograde’s energy will also help us to integrate the powerful Aries Solar Eclipse energies which reached their peak on April 19/20. This Solar Eclipse is one of the biggest cosmic events of the year so having Mercury Retrograde right after it feels like a sign from the Universe that we are getting time to work with, feel into, and digest its energies. This Solar Eclipse will be guiding you to focus on connection and community, as well as your home and family life. It has beautiful energy that will help you to take steps to create a loving environment around you. This Solar Eclipse can also be a very spiritual experience for you too, allowing you to open more of your higher chakras. As we journey into May, we are greeted with another Eclipse in the sign of Scorpio. Peaking on May 5th, this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse carries some intense, transformative energies. This Lunar Eclipse will feel far more personal for you, and may stir deep seeded thoughts, feelings, or even fears. It may be necessary for you to dig a little deeper and to work through some painful emotions in order to clear and rise. It feels like you are being called to step out of your shell and out into the world, and this Eclipse will be guiding you to shed any emotions or thoughts that are holding you back from doing so.


Taurus Season begins right after the Aries New Moon Solar Eclipse which peaks on April 19/20. Shortly after this Eclipse on April 21st, Mercury stations retrograde. Communication is going to be highlighted for you strongly during the start of Taurus Season. The Solar Eclipse is triggering your throat chakra and Mercury Retrograde is also asking you to go within so you can communicate from a place of higher clarity and greater truth. Communication will be a theme for you during this time, not just how you connect with others, but how you speak to yourself and how you choose to express your thoughts and feelings out into the world. You may also find yourself dealing with sibling issues under the Solar Eclipse energies. A sibling may need your support, or it could be that a sibling bring an opportunity or a new perspective that helps to shift the way you are thinking about things. As we journey deeper into the grounded, earthy energies of Taurus Season, you may find yourself slowing down and entering a more reflective space. If you don’t feel like acting or rushing ahead, lean into that and give yourself the space that is needed. Taurus Season tends to get us focusing on the future and our long term plans, not our short term ones. We may need to take small, methodical steps forward in order to get to our goals, rather than rushing ahead and trying to make everything happen all at once. Slow and steady wins the race is definitely a motto for you. On May 5th we are greeted with another Eclipse, this time its a Scorpio Lunar Full Moon Eclipse. This Eclipse carries some intensity that may trigger your sensitive side. Your psychic senses may feel more alive and your dreams may hold prophetic messages for you. There is a transformation that will take place under this Eclipse that is likely to trigger feelings around your career or higher purpose. New career opportunities may be on the horizon for you, or you may find a project or job you have been working on coming to a natural close. Whatever unfolds, know that Eclipses tend to bring events that help us to level up to the next chapter of our soul’s evolution. Trust in the journey!


Taurus Season is filled with Eclipse and Retrorgade energy, both of which can be highly transformative and awakening in their own ways. The Aries Solar New Moon Eclipse is one of the most powerful Eclipses in 2023 and peaks right before Taurus Season begins on April 19/20. This Eclipse is a door opener, meaning that it can bring opportunities, new insights, and fresh inspiration. It is a time to plant seeds and to think about what you wish to attract into your life. This Eclipse holds abundant energy for you, and may very well bring an opportunity to make more money or to expand your income in some way. Feel connected to the abundance that this Eclipse provides! Know you are worthy and know you are deserving of wealth. Mercury Retrograde begins on April 21st, and will bring a slow-down effect to the cosmic skies. This slow-down is welcomed however, as it will help us to digest and integrate some of those Solar Eclipse energies. During Mercury Retrograde, your intuition may be highlighted and your dreams may be more prophetic, so pay attention to any signs and clues the Universe may be sending your way. Trust your instincts and look within for guidance. The Scorpio Full Moon Lunar Eclipse follows on May 5th. This Eclipse holds some intensity, and may trigger feelings of insecurity. Rather than allow your insecurities to get the better of you, use them as fuel to learn, to expand your knowledge, and to become a student again. It is ok to be the student. It is ok that you are still learning. That is what life is about! Give yourself some grace to adjust to any learning processes that have come up for you. Remind yourself that it’s ok not to know everything and to make mistakes along the way. An opportunity for travel may also come up in early May. This trip is likely to be very healing for you and may expose insights or information that can help to activate a deeper understanding.
