March 19th ushers in Taurus season and Tarot Card Key 5, The Hierophant.
Check out these astrological highlights during Taurus season:
4/29 - Mercury in Gemini - New ideas, inspiration, curiosity, social life, conversations, writing, artistic expression, music, and tickling the intellect are at the forefront now. Have fun being witty and indulging in humor, but be mindful of deceptive plays on words, drama, gossip, and using words as weapons; especially when Mercury goes retrograde next month. Remember that thoughts and words have power.
4/30 - New Moon in Taurus & Solar Eclipse - The New Moon is a good time for setting intentions around security, being grounded, and the home. Take this time to connect with your 5 senses, appreciating the beauty in nature, good food, music, art, comfort and taking care of money matters.
5/2 - Venus in Aries - This sets the tone for things to heat up quickly, a feistiness and passion permeates the air. When it comes to our relationships, love and romance, and perhaps even our values and justice, we are independent, assertive and dominant. We live to flirt and love the chase, BUT we have to be careful. In the midst of this excitement, there is a tendency to be impulsive which can lead to elopements, one night stands and even affairs. This heat is also known to cause jealousy and possessiveness.
5/10 - Mercury retrograde - Our written, verbal and even non-verbal communication can become unclear, confusing, delayed or outright deceptive; techgear and modes of transportation (forms of communication and travel) may also malfunction. Check out Mercury Retrograde: To Fear, or Not to Fear.
5/10 - Jupiter in Aries - We are looking for expansion into new territories, grabbing the ram by the horns and taking center stage, meeting challenges head on, and creating our own prosperity, abundance and good fortune through our willpower, determination and hard work. This is also a time where we have “go fever” with the need to travel and explore, the world is your oyster.
5/16 - Full Moon in Scorpio & Lunar Eclipse - expect to feel every range of emotion very intensely, and be mindful of obsessive behaviors or taking things to the ‘nth degree. Psychic senses are expected to be off the charts, but may be muddled with the Lunar eclipse. I advise sitting back and riding this one out for chapters that need to come to a close on their own.
Here’s a look ahead at what Taurus season will bring or how each zodiac sign can work with the energy of Tarot Card Key 5, The Hierophant. To get a more well rounded picture, look at your Sun, Moon and Rising zodiacal signs.
Aries - The Fool - Don’t think too hard, just do and let Spirit and your gut be your guiding force to propel you in the direction you are intended to take. Sometimes the best plan is to not have a plan, to go merely by instinct. HOWEVER, you will have to step out of your current element to prevent fear and anxiety from past experiences from holding you back and taking chances.
Taurus - Two of Cups - Looking for a partner or needing someone to support you? This is a good time for new relationships and partnerships to enter the arena. It’s not about how long they will stay, but rather how valuable their presence is and the amount of healing or benefit that one each can have in this time. Perhaps an offer you cannot refuse is on the way.
Gemini - Two of Pentacles reversed - This can be a time of difficulty around keeping a balance in your finances, and/or perhaps just simply having too many things on your plate at one time. Create a budget, make cuts or adjustments where you can, and take a hard look at your priorities and what is unjustly demanding your attention.
Cancer - Four of Cups - You are in your element, the rest of the world is tuned out and you are not looking to have any form of mindless distractions at this time. This can be a great time for going within to create order and stability, and being able to discern genuine offers from the falsities, just make sure that you aren’t walled off to the point of missed opportunities.
Leo - Eight of Pentacles reversed - Now is the time to focus on you and doing the work on the self and inner circle rather than focusing your attention on your external affairs. This isn’t to say that you should completely abandon your outside world, only that you need some time redirecting your attention; be mindful of being a perfectionist to the point of paralysis.
Virgo - Six of Wands - You did it, and it’s time to own it and stand in your power! This is a time where you are not only successful in your endeavor(s), but are recognized for your achievements and the hard work that it took. Whatever you have been working diligently at, expect to make strides during Taurus season, and don’t shy away from giving yourself a pat on the back.
Libra - The Tower - And down comes the tower of Babel, the carefully laid stones of falsehoods, doubt and/or ego that prevent true growth, faith and enlightenment. Expect swift changes and epiphanies through the crumbling of false foundations and shocking revelations. Know that when the tower is struck and the bricks begin to tremble beneath your feet, those that flee fare better than those that white knuckle it to the end.
Scorpio - Page of Cups - Is your imagination flowing and creative juices flowing from the Divine? Perhaps you begin hearing the faint whispers of Spirit guiding you or a new opportunity that will fill your soul is only mere days away….However the Page or their fish comes to you, know that all things begin in the heart and the mind before they manifest in the material.
Sagittarius - Six of Swords - It is time to put down the sword, to back away from the strife, disappointment, defeat and all of the other mental-emotional cocktail that’s been plaguing you. Fair winds and calm seas are before you if you’re willing to take only what you need, leave the baggage behind, and set sail towards the horizon without a single glance back at what once was.
Capricorn - Knight of Pentacles - Slow, steady and methodical can be rather boring and leave one feeling like the work will never come to an end and the goal will never be met, but in reality, this is Spirit properly setting the table before the feast. Those that are working on long term health and growth tend to avoid fast food joints for a reason, quick and easy isn’t usually built to last.
Aquarius - Queen of Pentacles - At home, minding your business, cooking good meals, beautifying your nest and making it cozy, tending to your finances, sense of security and wealth, and nurturing the ones you care for are all at the top of the to do list this Taurus season. When you think of security, luxury and pleasure, what do you think of? That is where you put your energy.
Pisces - The Hermit reversed - if you have been in hibernation, it’s time to come out of the shadows and reenter society, expect to have company in the coming weeks. However, if you have been avoiding or missing much needed self reflection time, you may be being forced into it sooner rather than later. You may also find yourself walking away from a mentor or being in a leadership role that has lived its purpose.
