ISLAND ASTROLOGER: THE SENSUOUS GARDEN OF TAURUS SEASON

We’ve entered Taurus season, the time of year when we collectively get to enjoy the sensuous garden of pleasing delights. The world is teeming with beauty despite the storm of misery-inducing media, and with Venus in Pisces we have the opportunity to make our daydreams a reality – or fall prey to the lazy intoxication. In the season of the bull, follow your bliss with a relentless stubbornness and practice intentionally avoiding red flags.

Here are your horoscopes for the week. Read for your rising and sun signs.

Taurus

April 20 – May 20

Happy Taurus season to all of our beautiful bulls out there! As the sun directs its spotlight upon you, think about your unique spark – the aspect of yourself that sets you apart. Leaning into your individuality will allow those around you to express their own quirky parts more freely. It looks like your friends are positioned to help you blossom in the coming weeks, so find the gardeners in your midst and welcome the watering cans. 

Gemini

May 21 – June 21

Time spent alone will do wonders for your personal autonomy and your creative mind, so step away from the hubbub for a bit and relish in your solitude. Your work-life is receiving great blessings from our planetary guides and is probably awash in activity. Be sure to remember that you are not your work, and caring for yourself in times of high public activity is just as important as the work itself.

Cancer

June 22 – July 22

The recent full moon brought up your life-roots, such as your physical home, your birth family and chosen family, and the most hidden parts of yourself. Now is the time to release the feelings around these themes that no longer serve you so you can enter the next lunar cycle with only the necessities. Shed the heavy weight and press forward with a renewed sense of open adventure.

Leo

July 23 – Aug. 22

Your career and public-facing life are being highlighted this Taurus season, and it would serve you well to maintain an awareness of the other people who have their skin in the game. Think of shared interests as a map to success rather than roadblocks to be overcome because your success is deeply entwined with your stakeholders’ hopes and dreams – you’re not a lone island, you’re a member of a colony. 

Virgo

Aug. 23 – Sept. 22

There is a planet party in your house of partnership and endings, Virgo. Either you’re deep in the swell of sweet romantic bliss or you’re in the process of ritualizing the completion of an important project. Take some time to let your mind rise above the activity and attempt to look at your current place from a bird’s eye view to gain clarity. What have you been missing or overlooking? There is always more information beyond the horizon of your immediate environment, so see if you can open your field of vision.

Libra

Sept. 23 – Oct. 23

Modern life is filled with new updates, quick memes and breaking news – it can be difficult to create a personal groove when the world is in a state of constant flux. In the next few weeks, it is an ideal time for you to set up an individual routine to stay grounded in the never-ending noise – begin a daily health regimen, start a daily mindfulness practice, create a new morning ritual. Your sanity is precious.

Scorpio

Oct. 24 – Nov. 21

The pleasure principle is still very active in your astrology, and it only looks to be ramping up. “Give yourself over to absolute pleasure” à la Dr. Frank N Furter, and enjoy all the revelry being offered to you. Don’t lose sight of your responsibilities, however, because every party is followed by the inevitable cleanup. It is a much easier job to put things back in place if you’ve been minding the stacking dishes during the fest. 

Sagittarius 

Nov. 22 – Dec. 21

Your home is your temple and it is your job to treat it with the proper reverence. I imagine you have been doing so, or at least feeding into the divinity that resides in the place where you lay your head. Accessing your inner temple guard will not only support your own home life, but help you to treat other spaces with the same respect. Then, you will be a welcome guest into every home you enter.

Capricorn

Dec. 22 – Jan. 19

As you continue to structure your personal finances, remember that keeping it local will help your wallet. Staying with the familiar can begin to feel boring and mundane, but right now you have the opportunity to find serious magic in your neighborhood and with close relatives. Making dinner with friends can be just as special, if not more, as a fancy feast at the place with the classy water glasses. 

Aquarius

Jan. 20 – Feb. 18

You are in the midst of a  2+ year process of hammering out your personal boundaries and maturing into a healthier version of yourself – keep up the hard work. At the moment, it might feel like your needs are being met with an invisible guiding hand, but soon it will be up to you to take the reins. Spy where your resources are coming from and start doing the work to keep those channels open.

Pisces

Feb. 19 – March 20

We’re still in the midst of an enchanting planetary Pisces party, and you are receiving the joyous benefits of love, healing and abundance. Breathe it all in. Potential conflict – or at least a bit of agitation – appears to be on the horizon, though, so prepare your ship to chart some choppy waters. Flowery words and empty platitudes won’t be helpful when the battle comes.

Aries

March 21 – April 19

You’re still in the midst of an internal expedition – identify your secrets, fight your inner adversaries, come to terms with your reflections. Emerge from this exile victorious. You’ve just received a boost of energy in your process, like a fellow soldier has come to your aid. Over the next two months, wield your sword to cut through the limiting beliefs that you have about yourself.
