Taurus Monthly Horoscope for April 2020


Taurus (April 19-May 20) — I had a feeling Uranus in Taurus would mix things up for the financial markets, though I never imagined we would be on quite the wild ride we’re on now. Yet your role in all of this is to bring some stability to whatever environment you encounter. You don’t need to do much, and you don’t need to assert your authority. Rather, consider yourself a kind of guardrail to ensure that nothing goes over the edge, or over the top for that matter. Your appeal to those seeking leadership is spiritual. You are exuding a soulful quality most people will not be able to name, but they will surely notice. It’s not the kind of thing you want to put a label on anyway. Yet you’ve been through so much for so long that it has put you into contact with the deeper elements of yourself, and this is what’s tempering you. Now, with Saturn in Aquarius hovering on the midheaven angle of your solar chart, you are feeling the calling of a new kind of inner authority. Usually this location, the 10th house, is about worldly responsibility, power and accountability, though for you, this is first going to manifest as being in command of your life. You do not need to do much with this, or about it. Rather, tune into the sensation of your steady mind, and your ability to work with time in a new way. Notice how people respond to you, and respond in your presence. Feel that out carefully, so in case there is a moment when you have to take action unexpectedly, you will know how to handle yourself.

Sign Description for Taurus

(April 19-May 20) — Calm, collected and attractive on the outside, raging like a tempest on the inside, Taurus is the blacksmith shop of the soul. If you’re a Taurus, you’ve incarnated at this time for the purpose of being shaped and tempered. Just be sure you go gently on yourself even during the tempering process. And remember that such deep working out should be harnessed in the form of creative energy as well as sensuality. You need both.


While you’re famous for your supposed stubbornness, few understand that you’re trying to work out your inner complexities and don’t want to make a move or a decision until you feel you’re all sorted out. But there is always more to sort, and at a certain point you have to go with the experiment of living.

Change is challenging for you. It’s easier if you think it’s your idea, so make sure you keep coming up with new possibilities to keep yourself on the move. And speaking of ideas, change is indeed easier if you are connected to your creative process. You might need to finally move because you want to do something with your space.

Not enough room for an art space, yoga area, recording studio or practice room in your house? It’s finally time to go somewhere bigger.

Remember that confidence and digging in your heels are two entirely different things. You must handle your possessive nature carefully so as not to alienate others, and remember that as much as you might like to be ‘taken possession of’, this doesn’t really work for you. At a certain point you will need your independence.

Your sign is associated with the planet Venus, which is bright, beautiful and has an atmosphere of ammonia cooking at 900 degrees centigrade. It’s healthy to let some of that fire and passion out into the open. Taurus is a sign of the earth element, and is also a fixed sign, coming in the middle or peak of a season — which happens to be the season of Beltane, the pagan celebration of sex.

Your erotic nature is more promiscuous than you may want to admit, however, you also have a strong drive to bond with others. You must find a balance between the two. To learn more about yourself, look up the sign of your Venus as well as your Moon, two elements in your chart closely associated with Taurus.
