Now let’s get into what sets the 2024 Taurus Season apart from those in other years...

As the 2024 Taurus season begins, the Sun squares off with Pluto in Aquarius. It’s a sign that deep, shadowy bits of the psyche are stepping up for recognition and healing. Given that eclipse season is just winding down, it's a not-so-gentle reminder that your Shadow work is never done. Knowing yourself, owning up to who you are on all levels, is the work of a lifetime. Make it a part of your daily life, and you’ll make slow but steady progress.

Taurus’ ruler Venus is striding through Aries. Here Venus operates outside her usual comfort zone, learning how to chase her own desires.( Think of her humming “these boots are made for walkin’” and you’ve got the idea.) It’s not a time for compromising over what you need, But on the flip side, that’s not always easy on relationships. But this Taurus season, being true to yourself is paramount.

Venus is sharing Aries with a fast-talking, hard-negotiating Mercury. That’s not great for patience, but it is the ideal energy for plain speech and clearing the air. If there’s something you’ve been hesitant to say, now may be the time. Just remember, other’s tongues may be as sharp as yours. Plus, Mercury is retrograde, so prepare to apologize. A lot.

As always, it’s the Moon that sets the mood for the season. Luna finds herself in discerning Virgo, which can cast an uncomfortable pall over the coming month. The Moon in Virgo is committed to continuous quality improvement. Or, the desire to keep tweaking things until the results feel right.

Simplicity is usually what the Moon is seeking, given that she’s facing off with stern Saturn in Pisces. If you’re feeling the urge to pair down and purge, you are tuning into the cosmic vibe. Again, slow and steady is the secret sauce here. If you’ve got big projects to tackle, commit to doing a little bit every day until you’ve accomplished your goal.

Taurus season also begins just hours before a slower-moving story unfolds: the Apri 25 conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus in Taurus. These two planets meet up once every 13 years, give or take. Jupiter uplifts and expands what it touches, while Uranus likes to shake things up so we don’t get too set in our ways. Put the two together and we get a strong drive for freedom for soul-centered self-expression, even if it means upsetting our cozy nest to do it.

Their celestial meetup is even more potent for it’s energizing sextile with feisty Mars in Pisces. Here, Mars is like the cheering section in the stands, encouraging everyone to just go for it. Whatever “it” is for you.

Best Approach to Taurus 2024

So, where does this leave us? Though Taurus season is usually about kicking back and enjoying life’s many pleasures, this one has much more get-it-done drive. If you’ve got stuff on your plate that needs you to brave up and do it, there’s a lot of cosmic support for your endeavors.

Just remember, take it slow. Don’t try and multitask, finish one thing at a time and you’ll find your are getting more done. And, working with others may be a little bit more challenging than usual. Keep your head down and stay in your lane; if everyone does the same it could be an incredibly productive month. But if you do need to bargain, keep it simple and ask for exactly what you need, without the frills.

"It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop."
