Between blossoming flowers and longer days, you might be extra eager to jump into all of your spring festivities — but Taurus season, which arrives on April 19, is here to teach us the value of having patience. Just like tulips and daffodils that require a ton of patience, so too do our goals and objectives. You’ve planted the seeds during the hustle and bustle of Aries season, now it’s time to stand back and let the universe work its magic — and knowing how Taurus season 2022 will affect your zodiac sign is a must.
“Taurus season will usher in a period of grounding and focus. The next four weeks will be all about incremental change, patience, and focus,” astrologer Lauren Ash tells Bustle. “With Taurus influencing both romantic communication and our finances, expect an increased focus on saving money and recommitting to the people in life who matter most — including ourselves!”
Taurus season is all about comfort and stability, which is a much-needed change of pace after the chaotic rush of Aries season. The earth sign rules the second house of values and finances, and while the urge to splurge will run wild, it’s also a good time to reflect on the things that matter most to you and attract more of what brings value to your life. As a fixed sign, the bull is a great motivator to get things done, making it an ideal time to finish up any projects left on the backburner. Taurus season is a great time to connect with the earth as well as yourself, so you want to make sure you don’t skip out on your self-care routine.
Not only will we be having an intense solar eclipse on April 30 in Taurus, bringing dramatic changes and energetic shifts to the collective, but we’ll also be facing Mercury retrograde, too. “We’ll experience our second of four Mercury retrogrades for the year from May 10 to June 12,” explains Ash. “While Mercury retrograde usually gets a bad reputation for skewing communication, many signs will find this retrograde energy bringing unexpected career and love opportunities their way.”
But don’t let that scare you — there’s plenty of cosmic blessings to go around during Taurus season. “After spending some time in dreamy and optimistic Pisces, Jupiter enters cardinal fire sign Aries on May 11, bringing an energetic surge of authority, passion, and independence your way,” explains Ash.

Time to get real about your finances, Aries. Have you gotten a little too comfortable with splurging lately?

Now it’s time to buckle down and get back on your grind in terms of money and material goods,” says Ash. “While the desire to spend, spend, spend will be at an all-time high during Taurus season, it’s best to focus on building security and saving your pennies for a rainy day.”

It’s a good idea to take stock of your life, specifically your relationships, and get realistic with what your needs are. “You may find yourself needing to lean on others more than usual.

Relationships are changing for you this month, some for better, some for worse.”

Your burning desire for novelty is coming to a halt this season, Sagittarius. This time is about doubling down on your objectives and goals. Incorporate new habits in your daily routine to keep things spicy and entertaining. “It’s time to focus on getting back into the swing of things. Although you’re known for your fun and flirty side, people underestimate your savvy and skills,” says Ash. “This month is about aligning your daily habits with your long-term goals and shifting your focus on the future.”
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
