Gemstones for Taurus Season

Updated: May 22, 2023

If you've been feeling fired up from Aries Season, Taurus Season is here to help you bring it down a notch, smell the roses, and enjoy the finer things in life. This Earth sign season also brings with it Mercury Retrograde- making it a great time to slow down and regroup.


Taurus Season April 20 - May 20 Symbol: The Bull Planetary Ruler: Venus Element: Earth This Taurus season, slow down and get in tune with the rhythm of your body and/or nature, but make it luxurious. Venus rules Taurus and loves the finer things in life. That could mean scheduling an extra long massage, going out for a fancy meal, or buying high-end new hiking gear. You’ll know you’ve hit the right balance when it feels indulgent and like a sound investment. Just make your choices carefully during the Mercury retrograde (more on that below). At Taurus’s best they are patient, and at their worst they are stubborn. Focus on patience this season as we navigate through a Mercury retrograde and eclipse season. This season won’t be a time for manifesting (well, not until the New Moon on the 19th), but it is a good time for reflection and steady progress toward your goals. It is an excellent exercise to practice grounding yourself whenever we move through an Earth sign season. What would you need to feel secure?

Important Dates:

During eclipses, mercury retrogrades, or any other astrological thing you might read about, remember not to panic. Mercury retrogrades happen at least three times a year. There is a minimum of four eclipses a year, sometimes six. Your life probably doesn’t descend into chaos once a quarter every single year. The key to mercury retrogrades is to remember to pay attention more closely. During eclipse seasons, it is time to pause your manifestation work and go with the flow. Sometimes the Astro weather affects you more than others, depending on your birth chart. But things are constantly in motion, and new vibes are always on the way.

New Moon in Aries + Hybrid Solar Eclipse April 20

Technically this new moon is in the last moments of Aries season. Four hours before it becomes Taurus season. This eclipse is the first eclipse in the Aries/Libra series. It is our preview of the series that will run through 2025. Now would be a great time to take notes of life events and things you notice during that time. Every Eclipse series tells a story. As we move through this series, track your story to better understand what it will mean for you.

Mercury Retrograde April 21st

If you fear something, it is best to face it head-on. So if the mention of Mercury retrograde makes you clench your jaw consider this, an enemy can’t surprise you if you know they’re coming.

Mercury Direct May 14 (+Mother’s Day!)

Mercury goes direct just in time to celebrate Mother’s Day! But the post-retrograde shadow period officially ends May 31. What does a post-retrograde shadow phase even mean? Mercury won’t travel at its usual speed until two weeks after the retrograde ends. Continue to proceed with caution.

Are you ready to manifest again? It’s time! Now that you’ve made it through all of the above, you should know exactly what you want to turn into reality. This New Moon is connecting with BIG regenerative energy. Use all that power wisely and move something from an idea into the physical world.
