15 Inspiring Taurus Season Quotes to Help You Chill Out
We bet you’re beat. With Mercury in and out of retrograde and the whirlwind that is Aries season, the first half of spring has been exhausting. Luckily, days are getting longer, temperatures are rising, and we’re just about to enter sensual-but-sensible, Taurus season.
Starting on April 20 and continuing through May 20, the sun enters Taurus, the fixed Earth sign. As an Earth sign, Taurus reminds us to stay grounded, plant deep roots, and soak in the beauty of nature. (It’s no surprise that Earth Day falls within this season!) On a more figurative level, this season reminds us to slow down and plant seeds for the future.
The bull behind this sign is a symbol of practically, tenacity, and creativity. So while Taurus season taps into a need for foundation, it also asks us to explore our desires and seek out indulgences. All in all, it’s a great time to “treat yo self.”

So what’s the downside of Taurus season? It’s slow. If you’re an on-the-go sign that likes to keep moving (we’re looking at you, Aries), Taurus season can make you feel like your life is at a standstill. But what it asks us to do is stay in the present and experience each moment without wondering what comes next.
Taurus may also trick you into over-indulgence by buying things you don’t need; combat this by staying mindful. Push yourself into doing a little spring cleaning to keep your home and thoughts organized and uncluttered. Lastly, Taurus is famous for being stubborn, and while this is the season for slowing down, don’t stay still because you’re too stubborn to move. Remember: keep your feet on your ground but your mind open.
If you’re struggling during this bull-headed season, these quotes will help you stay organized and focused, but also encourage you to take each day as it comes.
