Taurus Season Is Coming: Here’s Your Horoscope for the Week of April 17

Weekly Horoscope
After a hectic Aries month, the sign of Taurus tells us that it’s time to slow down our pace and just chill.

By now, we’ve become accustomed to life indoors and have adjusted our separate work and home habits accordingly, understanding that “hustle culture” isn’t something we should pressure ourselves into for the sake of our mental health.

Through the energies of Taurus, we will be more encouraged to lie back and take pleasure in the things that make us happy, whether it’s binge-watching a feel-good show or discovering a new hobby. Taurus also calls us to appreciate the little things — the ones we take for granted — and our relationships with people who we miss the most.

Above all, Taurus shows us the importance of finding comfort in our homes as the world rapidly opens up, propelling us back into our old routines of reporting to the office, meeting up with friends, and traveling within and out of the country. Though this may excite you, don’t push yourself too far! There’s no shame in just staying a homebody for a little while longer.

Something worth noting, though, is that Mercury Retrograde is also coming this week, exactly a day after Taurus season begins. This planet of communication retrograding in the first earth sign of the astrological year means that all of us will be susceptible to stubbornness, pride, and frustration over things that don’t follow your exact plan. What we must do to combat this energy is to just be more open to changes and mishaps, and to keep ourselves grounded and humble.

Here’s how the energies of Taurus will affect you this week:

Aries (March 21 to April 19)

You’re finding it difficult to stay positive after recently experiencing unfortunate events. Drained and unmotivated, you just don’t have it in you to chase after your goals anymore. It won’t be easy but trust in the timing of the universe—the sun will shine again eventually. In the meantime, appreciate what you have and the people who continue to choose to stay. Let them refuel your engine with that much-needed creativity and inspiration!

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You feel like life is spiraling out of your control and you are unsure now of the road you’re on. You need now to make a logical decision, so try your best to detach yourself from your emotions. Be honest with yourself. Clarity will come in time!

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

There may be some indecision in your life but trust that you will be able to handle all these hectic situations with mindfulness and clarity. You are a master of your emotions right now and a great communicator. Allow the universe to lead you to where you’re meant to be.

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

You are currently being offered opportunities that are full of emotional fulfillment. Relish this love and creative abundance as you freely share your gifts and talents with the world! Don’t doubt yourself; remember that you got here and achieved your successes on your own. This is your sign to chase your dreams!

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Drastic changes are coming but you have enough time to prepare and protect yourself from them. There’s no use running and avoiding them; focus your energy on knowing how to adapt. Don’t be afraid to take risks to free yourself of outside forces that are trying to take control! Be brave in creating the life you want to live.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Because of recent accomplishments, your head is spinning with so many plans and ideas you want to pursue. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and explore new things so you can learn, grow, and improve! Remember that it’s just as important to take frequent breaks too to recharge your energies. You’ve got this!

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

You’re on a roll with pursuing your creative passions, expertly maximizing your skills and talents to bring plans into reality. Remember to always be clear with your intentions and truthful with yourself. Life is better lived when you’re aligned with your values.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Disappointing setbacks have you feeling stuck in a rut, and filled with pain and resentment. You’re looking for someone to blame but that really won’t help. It’s okay to give yourself a moment to feel bad. Eventually, start reflecting on the lessons you’ve learned from all this so you can begin your healing process. In time, you’ll get back up again and move forward.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You feel that you lack spiritual fulfillment and crave something that will give you that deeper meaning or connection with yourself or with the universe. But how can you do so if you’re not allowing yourself to feel vulnerable? You must listen to what you’re truly feeling and chase after what you want no matter what anybody says. After all, this is your life, so live it to the fullest!

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Your self-doubts, fears, and anxieties are keeping you from reaching your fullest potential. You have to assess what it is that keeps you rooted in place and let it go so you can freely live your life the way you’re supposed to. See all the good that’s around you and acknowledge all you’ve done that has brought you here. You are stronger than you know. Just keep going!

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Mistakes are inevitable and no human is perfect. Once you accept that, you’ll reach that breakthrough you’ve been waiting for all this time. Be open to all the changes, learn from your failures, and be ready to grow from these experiences so you can create opportunities for yourself instead of waiting for them to come to you.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

You’re hustling through your days with a laser focus on your goals, completely confident in your capability to achieve them. Remember, though, to always take time out of your busy schedule to listen to your inner voice, evaluate your priorities, and assess if this is where you truly want to be. If there’s a moment of self-doubt, know you can always rely on trusted friends for support.
