Heavy energy out there. All that fixed earth Taurus. It's easy to get bogged down. And to give up.
You know that's Shadow Taurus, right? Giving up. Withdrawing. Isolating. Shutting down. It's a survival instinct, gone wrong. If you're feeling less than enthused, this could be why.
But this is still a fertile season. Taurus is also about new growth. Yes, even with the current opposition from Saturn in Scorpio.
The evening of April 30th to May 1st is Beltane, a fertility festival. Even if you don't feel like celebrating, the wheel of the year continues to turn. The energy is potent right now for creating something new. Saturn's limits may narrow the scope, but there's still something to work with. The pulse of new life is happening, and it's bigger than you. This is encouraging, because it means there's always hope, no matter how insurmountable your problems are. Not that your problems aren't valid, but there's always something more to reach for.
Remember, efforts made in Taurus will be slooow. You may have to push a bit harder, be a bit more patient, take things one day at a time.
The Tarot card associated with Taurus is the Empress. She's the Earth Mother, and she signifies abundance, creation, sensuality...sometimes she literally means pregnancy. The version I've included here is from the Sepia Stains deck, by Bethalynne Bajema.
