Happy Birthday Taurus! The Sun is in your stars, the sign of The Bull, until May 20. Taurus is a dependable, loyal, down-to-earth and sensual sign ruled by Venus. Collectively, we’ll all be feeling the slow jam of Taurus energy, taking time to smell the flowers and enjoy the pleasures of nature, fine food, and each other (hello spring fever!) We’ll want to indulge in both comfort and luxury. Security will be on our mind. Productivity and focus will come easily now, as long as it’s steady-footed, not the warp drive energy of the previous sign, Aries. Determined Taurus gets shit done, but on their schedule 😉 The Bull has a reputation of speaking truth bluntly and being, um, headstrong (and during Taurus season, we’ll all kinda be like that). This is where the fine art of compromise comes in: both parties need a win-win. Because ultimately, that’s what Taurus energy is about ~ cultivating a high quality, happy, smell-the-roses, fulfilled life for everyone! Below, I’ve curated a list of 10 gift ideas sure to please our excellent Taurus friends. (p.s. The delightful picture of the bull peeking through greenery in Spain is courtesy of pixabay.com)
Dark Chocolate Red Wine Truffles
You just know these truffles will guarantee a smile 🙂 Sweet and deep with a little kick, just like your beloved Taurus! (extra points for including a bottle of their fave red wine)
Raw Emerald Stud Earrings
Emerald is the birthstone for May. It’s known as the stone of hope. She’ll love these raw emerald earrings because they’re practical with boho chic style, and they’re real fucking gemstones. There’s nothing artificial about a Taurus. Feel free to dance in your chair or strut around the room while listening to Patti Labelle and Mariah Carey slay a version of the 1978 hit “Got to be Real“.

Air Plant in Cholla Wood
Taurus peeps groove on trees, gardens, flowers, plants and growing greenery. Gift them a hassle-free “Fasciculata” air plant in a unique Cholla wood holder. Cholla Wood is the skeletal remains of the Cholla Cactus, a sustainable resource found in the high desert of the Southwestern U.S. (and it’s a conversation piece too!)

This high quality rhodonite sphere has natural deep pink color with black manganese veins. Simply holding this stone ball promotes relaxation and a sense of well-being!
How’s Mercury Retrograde been for you? The middle of the week brought the middle of the retrograde (Mercury and the Sun were conjunct). We’re half way through, hang in there 🙂 Mercury turns direct on May 3. Today (4/21) Mars enters the sign of Gemini and will stay there through June 4. This energy will have us dreaming up new ideas and projects, engaging in mind stimulating conversation, and make us way more curious and inquisitive. Curb sharp tongues during this Mars time, words could turn into weapons. Mars will make us highly adaptable to any changes. If you find yourself on edge, try creating with your hands; play a video game or musical instrument; work a puzzle. Gemini rules the hands, and channeling the intense Mars energy through our hands can be very therapeutic right now.
Earth Day is Saturday April 22. Do you have any plans? Please comment below! We’ll be tending our garden and going “Forest Bathing“. Have you heard of it? Scientists suggest that when we walk in the forest for a couple of hours, our immune function and mental health increase from breathing in the forest air that’s full of beneficial bacteria, plant-derived essential oils, and negatively-charged ions. Happy Earth Day to all! Thank you for reading!
