After a month embracing the sensual and grounded nature of Taurus season, making ‘self’ the priority we’re about to see energies shift to an outwardly focus. From May 22nd the universe calls in Gemini season, the first air sign of the zodiac year, inviting us to get social.
The sun has officially entered the season of Taurus, calling in a much needed sense of ease. From the 22nd of April to the 21st of May a shift can be felt from Aries’ ‘do it all’ nature, to the slow burning energy of Taurus. Calm, deliberate and considered, Taureans are known for approaching life one step at a time and appreciating life’s simple pleasures along the way.
