Is your “money mojo” rich or poor? Taurus season from April 21st-May 21st influences everybody’s prosperity mindset. Taurus is the second station in the sky. It follows Aries, the first station or ‘sign’ which initiates the zodiac calendar at the Spring Equinox when the Sun perfectly aligns atop the Earth’s equator thus heralding the season of spring that welcomes new life to our planetary ecosystem. Taurus builds upon the seeds of new vegetation and opportunity first budding during Aries, bringing them into full bloom. For this reason, the station in the sky of Taurus has become known as the sign of abundance. In our own lives, Taurus season invites us to assess our resources and appreciate where abundance is in full bloom. Taurus represents the energy we each possess to attract and manifest, and for this reason is symbolized by the psychological archetype of the banker and is often associated with money. Taurus energy might make us feel resourceful, acquisitive, sensual and generous. But if we allow Taurus energy to overrun us then we may feel greedy, overindulgent, possessive or lazy. Some may also experience a rejection of Taurus energy such as shame around prosperity, fear of scarcity, belief that abundance is unavailable to them, or complexes around money. Taurus season reminds us that abundance is simply a matter of perspective, and this month the planets enrich areas of your life ripe for recognizing various forms of wealth and harvesting greater prosperity.

ARIES/ARIES RISING: Find new ways to earn riches. Identify a valuable talent of yours that people would pay for; consider charging more for your product/service or adding bonus value to your product/service to encourage sales; sell unwanted possessions. You are attracting the attention of others during the first two weeks of May when magnetic Venus graces your presentation house, so that’s the ideal time for promoting your image or a product/service with aesthetic value. Give your image a boost especially around May 9th when magnetic Venus trines fortuitous Jupiter. It may be during the last two weeks of May that the tangible results of your efforts manifest. Your hidden area of abundance this month? Your sex life! Take time to enjoy intimate pleasure (even if its with just yourself) and consider adding the spice of sex appeal into how you are presenting yourself or your products/services.
TAURUS/TAURUS RISING: Be the star of your own show. Utilize your appearance and presence to influence others by updating your look to convey a character message (ie: if you want the role then you need to look the part) or literally show up to be personally present to people/venues where you seek greater power. Plan your strategy around the May 4the New Moon and use technology to spread your message on May 8th when expressive Mercury aligns with innovative Uranus. The buzz begins building during the first half of the month and bears results from May 15th-June 8th when magnetic Venus makes your irresistibly attractive drawing admiration, romance or funds (or all three) your way.

GEMINI/GEMINI RISING: Retreat, rest, reflect, rejuvenate. Take a break from your exhausting lifestyle and treat yourself to self-nurturing activities during the first three weeks of the month.

Your hidden area of abundance this month? Your health! A review of your daily habits might reveal the sneaky subconscious rituals that are taking you off course (such as spending too much time on social media, accepting too many social obligations, not sleeping enough etc) and offer an opportunity to incorporate new fulfilling habits that light up your soul (such as meditation, spending time with your pet, tech-free times, outdoor walks etc). You’ll come back ready to be in the spotlight during the last two weeks of the month starting on May 21st when expressive Mercury and inspirational Sun align at the forefront of your horoscope.
CANCER/CANCER RISING: Ride the wave of others to help make your own.
