April 20th, 2023 ushers in Taurus season, the Bull, and Tarot Card Key 5, The Hierophant.
Check out these astrological highlights during Taurus season:
4/20 - New Moon in Aries & Solar Eclipse - This New Moon is a good time for setting intentions around being bold and starting something new, among up energy to move forward with something that has stalled, and having courage to initiate change. Eclipses bring revelations and life changing evolutions, solar eclipses specifically are seen as bringing new beginnings and opportunities. Interestingly, this New Moon and Solar eclipse falls on a Thursday, Jupiter day, where the theme is growth, expansion, and luck.
4/21 Mercury Retrograde - Our written, verbal and even non-verbal communication can become unclear, confusing, delayed or outright deceptive; tech gear and modes of transportation (forms of communication and travel) may also malfunction. Check out Mercury Retrograde: To Fear, or Not to Fear.
5/5 Full Moon in Scorpio & Lunar Eclipse - This Full Moon is a good time for releasing things around overly emotional situations, obsessions, and detrimental secrets. Be incredibly mindful of how you feel, this day is extremely important and potent. This Lunar eclipse will bring revelations and endings that have the potential to bring intense emotional responses.
5/7 Venus in Cancer - There will be a strong focus on family, home, relationships, romance, empathy, compassion, heightened intuition, deep emotions, guidance, support, comfort, and all things beauty related. Nurture yourself and those around you!
5/14 Mercury Direct - Amen, enough said!
5/16 Jupiter in Taurus - with dedication, hard work, patience and being practical we are able to invite in growth and luck, particularly around security, wealth, home and family. The key here is to keep your nose to the grindstone.
5/19 New Moon in Taurus - This is a good time for setting intention around health, wealth, and security. Take the time to connect with your 5 senses, cook a good meal and ground yourself. Checkout some of my favorite grounding techniques, 13 Best Crystals for Grounding, and Meditation 101.
5/20 Mars in Leo - You can do it, put your mane into it! This is a good time for being super charming, charismatic, and confident (remember the three C’s).

Here’s a look ahead at what Taurus season will bring or how each zodiac sign can work with the energy this season. To get a more well rounded picture, look at your Sun, Moon and Rising zodiacal signs.
Aries - Knight of Wands RX - Whoa, slow your roll! Take your time, focus your energy, don’t rush in, and be prepared for delays. Anything worth having is worth waiting for.
Taurus - Eight of Pentacles - It’s time to put your nose to the grindstone and get the work done! It’s important to not let outside influences distract you, your keen eye and dedication to mastery is key.
Gemini - The High Priestess RX - If you are not silent and still, then the faint whisper of your intuition will be missed. Listen and trust, even in spite of what seems “logical”. Be mindful of keeping and exposing secrets.
Cancer - The Hierophant - There is a time for play, and a time for getting serious, falling in line and doing the work. This is a time to dive deep into your religious or spiritual practices and get on track for true alchemy and enlightenment.
Leo - The Fool RX - Where are you holding back or letting caution keep your feet cemented to the ground? You won’t know if the journey is worth taking unless you take a chance and let Spirit lay the yellow bricks before your feet.
Virgo - Judgement - You are being called to something greater, something of true value, something in alignment with Divine Will. This can even be an actual judgment delivered. Will you heed the call?
