Horoscope for Taurus

Whether you are an April or a May born Taurus, this is your month, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of May in Taurus. Your birthday month doesn't run its course until 21st May, with plenty of support before then to embark on what is likely to be an extraordinary solar year. For the first time in eight decades, the Sun returned last month to find Uranus in Taurus, as will Mercury when he returns on 7th May and Venus on 15th May. With Uranus here until 2026, the beginning of a seven year journey to find your personal truth overlaps the start of a new solar year. Yet until returning to Taurus Venus and Mercury start the month in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, where Venus is taking your heart on a nostalgic trip down memory lane and Mercury is helping to close old doors. It is not until Mercury returns to Taurus on 7th May and Venus on 15th May that you will be ready to fully embrace this new solar year. While the Sun and Mercury will both leave Taurus on 21st May, turning their attention onto income matters, Venus will stay on. Venus and Mercury, the planets of love and communication will both be in Taurus during some stunning conditions from 16th May to 19th May. It begins with Mars' return to your communication sector on 16th May and with Mercury already in Taurus, this will add to the communication support you already have. What Mars can do is push through communication barriers and that is what makes the timing of his return so auspicious. For it is during Mars' first full day in your communication sector and during Mercury, the planet of communication's final days in Taurus that the Moon will return to your relationship sector on 17th May. This begins the lead up to a Full Moon on 19th May, one that has the potential to create an opportunity for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough.
