Astrology tells us that as the Sun moves through all the zodiac signs in turn during the course of a year, there is a subtle shift in the underlying energy around us.
When the Sun leaves bold, brash Aries and arrives in earthy Taurus, you’ll notice a more focused vibe, and a more cautious approach to life all round.
During the Sun in Taurus transit, we can obviously expect the traits attributed to Taurus in astrology to become more prominent. Taurus is associated with stability, emotional security, material growth and earthy sensuality, so there is a definite slow down in the pace of life during this transit.
Taurus energy is careful and methodical in its expression – everything has a purpose and a point, and we don’t tend to waste our energy.
Because Taurus is a Fixed Earth sign, this energy brings a lot of staying power and tenacity, which is a real boost to anyone enduring a difficult situation.
Many of us will be rather risk-averse during this transit, because Taurus energy plays it safe. We prefer the tried and tested to the new and dangerously unknown, in all areas of life.
However, Taurus is not a boring zodiac sign – there’s a lot of consolidation going on behind the scenes here, accumulating wealth, shoring up emotional security and laying the groundwork for future success.
During the Sun in Taurus transit, many of us can usefully prepare for the months ahead.
Each sign will experience this transit slightly differently. However, all signs will experience the calming influence, and most of us will notice the more serious and conventional vibe.
You can use the Sun in Taurus each year to assess your progress thus far and to plot a careful course ahead.
Sun in Taurus for an Aries (Aries dates: March 20 – April 19)
This transit activates your financial zone, Aries. The materialistic energy of Taurus is perfect for getting your finances in order and for setting a careful budget for the rest of the year.
Despite your devil-may-care attitude to life, you do feel more secure when you know your money is well managed, so take time out now to bring everything under control.
Sun in Taurus for a Taurus (Taurus dates: April 20 – May 20)
With the Sun now in your own sign, your truly creative nature is unleashed. This is a fantastic time for your personal fertility, Taurus – not only baby-wise, but in terms of birthing new projects, new ideas, new businesses and new ventures.
Whatever you have been incubating can now flourish and blossom, so embrace new opportunities with joy.
Sun in Taurus for a Gemini (Gemini dates: May 21 – June 20)
The Sun in Taurus transit activates your spiritual zone, Gemini. Your logical mind tends to dismiss spiritual experiences that you can’t explain, but the Sun urges you to feel, to trust and to follow your instincts more in this area.
Move cautiously, by all means, but do move ahead with your spiritual learning.
Sun in Taurus for a Cancer (Cancer dates: June 21 – July 21)
For you, Cancer, the astrology says this transit sheds light on your social life and encourages you to find common ground with as many other people as possible.
Loyalty is a big trait of Taurus, and you may find that yours is tested now – but if you can stick to the highest motives in dealing with others, you’ll find that your patience with friends and acquaintances has been rewarded.
Sun in Taurus for a Leo (Leo dates: July 22 – August 22)
The Sun now shines from your career zone, Leo – and since Taurean energy is solid, focused and intent on material success, the signs are good for a promotion or a career win of some kind during this transit.
Keep working, regardless of whether you get recognition or not; even if now is not your time, you’re gaining experience that sooner or later cannot be overlooked.
Sun in Taurus for a Virgo (Virgo dates: August 23 – September 22)
The Sun transiting your fellow Earth astrology sign of Taurus awakens your creativity and inspires your sense of justice, Virgo.
You’ll find other cultures and other ways of life extremely interesting. The key is learning from people, wherever you find them, and to figure out how to incorporate what’s good without losing your own identity.
Sun in Taurus for a Libra (Libra dates: September 23 – October 22)
Any lack of emotional security in your life will show up majorly now that the Sun transits Taurus. This is a good time to carefully examine your psyche and to release emotional blockages, Libra, via counseling or therapy.
Forgive others or seek forgiveness yourself. By cleansing your conscience, you can embrace this transit’s emotionally honest vibe.
Sun in Taurus for a Scorpio (Scorpio dates: October 23 – November 21)
The Sun in Taurus transits your astrology love zone, Scorpio, so sensuality and passion are certainly in the air. If you’re already in a relationship, it’s a good time to get some private time away from the family, if you can.
If you’re dating, this is an excellent transit for falling in love – the initial passion should burn nicely, eventually reaching a strong mutual understanding.
Sun in Taurus for a Sagittarius (Sagittarius dates: November 22 – December 20)
The Sun in Taurus highlights your health zone, Sagittarius. Expect to have a bit less physical energy than normal but – and this is the crucial bit – you’ll be able to use your energy in a more focused and useful manner.
This is a good period for strength training or for slow, graceful exercise like yoga, dance, or tai chi. Ease the pace.
Sun in Taurus for a Capricorn (Capricorn dates: December 21 – January 19)
Creatively, the Sun in Taurus transit brings your imagination to life, Capricorn. It should be much easier than normal for you to play with art and crafts, as you won’t feel that you’re wasting your time.
Invest in some crafting supplies or lessons in a new artistic skill. Art of any kind provides really valuable down time for you and is a great release of stress.
Sun in Taurus for an Aquarius (Aquarius dates: January 20– February 17)
Gather the family for a group hug. With the Sun in Taurus now transiting your family zone, it’s cozy affection all round.
This is a very domestic vibe, Aquarius, so this period is also good for home decorating or renovation, or indeed for buying and selling a home. Beautify your surroundings until they feel uniquely yours, because your emotional state will be affected by the rooms around you.
Sun in Taurus for a Pisces (Pisces dates: February 18 – March 19)
With the Sun in Taurus now in your study zone, you may find that learning new skills takes longer than you might like, Pisces. Don’t be disheartened if you have to go back to basics for a while.
With good time management, you’ll make enormous progress in no time – but you must be patient and wait for results. Education-wise, this transit is a slow-burner, but the results will definitely be worth the wait.
