Did you know that it takes the Moon just 28 days to travel the whole zodiac, visiting each zodiac sign in turn? That means that every month, the Moon spends around two and a half days in each zodiac sign.
Astrologers call these lunar visits to each sign Moon transits, so we might for example say that today is a Taurus Moon transit day. The Moon’s core astrological energies are all about feelings, emotion, intuition and subconscious urges, so when the Moon transits through each of the twelve star signs, these energies are expressed in a slightly different way according to each zodiac sign.
Each Moon transit in astrology has a slightly different flavor, feeling a little different to the few days before it and the few days after it.
Born with the Moon in Taurus?
Perhaps you were born on a day when the Moon was in Taurus? In that case, we say that you have a natal Taurus Moon. In astrology, this lunar energy adds emotional stability to your character, along with tenacity and staying power. It does, however, also make you rather possessive and stubborn.
The Transiting Moon in Taurus
When the Moon transits Taurus, emotional energies are generally stable and relatively calm. The Taurus Moon likes to build and to seek security, so by and large this is a good Moon transit for consolidating progress and for enjoying or furthering the status quo.
Taurus is a sensual earth sign, so when the Moon transits Taurus, sensuality and creature comforts are high on the agenda – that’s what makes this a lovers’ Moon, good for cozy cuddles and intimate fun.
Astrology shows that people are often slow to anger during a Taurus Moon, as patience is increased – but only to a point. When tempers do flare, expect spectacular fireworks born of pent-up resentment.
Often the Taurus Moon is a good time for hard work and solid background efforts. These lunar energies are productive and creative, but it’s not easy to start new things under a Taurus Moon transit; Taurus is a fixed zodiac sign after all. This lunar energy is conducive to long term, sustained efforts, so don’t expect a quick fix during this transit.
When the Moon is in Taurus, good things to do include:
- Have a cozy night in with your lover
- Cook your favorite meal
- Enjoy a massage or a spa day
- Stay firmly within your comfort zone
- Make long term romantic promises
- Dance, swim or otherwise move gracefully
- Catch up on overdue projects
- Plant things, harvest or attend to the garden
Your Moon in Taurus Horoscope
Aries Horoscope During a Taurus Moon (Aries dates: March 20 – April 19)
Slow down! Your normal urge to race ahead simply won’t work during a Taurus Moon transit, so accept this enforced slow down for the good thing it is. Enjoy the scenery instead of racing onwards. This is a good few days to look at your budgeting and spending, as the cautious Taurus Moon energies will help to curb some of your more impulsive financial habits.
Taurus Horoscope During a Taurus Moon (Taurus dates: April 20 – May 20)
When the Moon transits your own sign, your emotional comfort zone is stable, secure and very, very comfy, so this should be a laid-back few days. Possibly too laid-back in fact, and you may be inclined towards laziness for a while. Nevertheless, it’s a great time for love and romance and if you can find some motivation from somewhere, you can also get through some difficult but productive work.
Gemini Horoscope During a Taurus Moon (Gemini dates: May 21 – June 20)
Taurus Moon energy is slower than Gemini would like, so you may feel a bit frustrated and hemmed in by this transit. Instead of getting annoyed, try turning your thoughts inwards. The Taurus Moon transits your spiritual zone, and this slower pace of life makes it the ideal few days for meditation or seeking spiritual answers. These energies are kind and sympathetic, so it’s a good time for helping others.
Cancer Horoscope During a Taurus Moon (Cancer dates: June 21 – July 21)
The grounded energy of the Taurus Moon is helpful to you, as it tones down your emotional level and helps to soothe your worries. Life probably feels quite safe and secure for a few days, which again helps you to make progress in all areas of life, because you feel that you don’t have to be on the defensive. It’s a good time to make new friends, as your confidence improves.
Leo Horoscope During a Taurus Moon (Leo dates: July 22 – August 22)
The Taurus Moon is a good time for you to get ahead at work. Less flamboyant than Leo – and arguably more serious – the energy of Taurus is ambitious but careful, helping you to make a good impression when it matters most. Watch out for increased stubbornness during this transit, however, and a desire to prove that you’re right. You may well be – but you don’t need to shout it from the rooftops.
Virgo Horoscope During a Taurus Moon (Virgo dates: August 23 – September 22)
When the Moon is in your fellow earth sign Taurus, you’ll feel creative and curious about the world around you. The highly practical Taurus energy matches your own practical Virgo nature, so this is a good time to attend to hands-on matters. Sensuality is also boosted, so put love first for a few days and enjoy some special times with your partner. If you’re single, this is one of the best lunar transits for dating.
Libra Horoscope During a Taurus Moon (Libra dates: September 23 – October 22)
The Taurus Moon puts you in an indulgent mood, wanting the best in life, especially in terms of food, drink and other pleasures.

These energies do benefit you in terms of adding conviction to your decisions, however. Stronger decision-making boosts your leadership skills at work too.
Scorpio Horoscope During a Taurus Moon (Scorpio dates: October 23 – November 21)
The highly sensual Taurus Moon energies transit your love zone, so this is a wonderful few days to be in love.

This is all about intimacy, comfort and being happy in your own skin – definitely a lunar transit Scorpio needs from time to time.
Sagittarius Horoscope During a Taurus Moon (Sagittarius dates: November 22 – December 20)
Taurus Moon energies are a little bit too sluggish for your liking, so you may feel frustrated for a few days, wanting to move faster than life seems to allow.

Make the most of this earthy vibe by getting out into nature.
Capricorn Horoscope During a Taurus Moon (Capricorn dates: December 21 – January 19)
The solid, stable Taurus Moon energies suit you perfectly, and you can use this time to create new business ideas or to incubate new plans.

Beware of being too stubborn or set in your ideas, however. Be open to change.
Aquarius Horoscope During a Taurus Moon (Aquarius dates: January 20 – February 17)
The Taurus Moon brings out your affectionate side and you’ll enjoy a loving and good-natured few days under this influence. It could also be argumentative at times, however, as the Taurus Moon enhances your Aquarius stubbornness, especially within the family environment. It’s a good time for home improvement or DIY, as you’ll have a creative eye for new décor or comforts.
