Just like the emotional sphere, the cerebral plane and the action-oriented arena, the material world is influenced by astrology. Some zodiac signs are quite happy feeling, thinking or doing, but a few signs are happiest acquiring material possessions and experiences. The zodiac sign of Taurus is chief among them. This is the zodiac sign of getting rich, buying things and enjoying the world of the here and now.
Every year the Sun visits the zodiac sign of the Bull at the same time of year. Spring has sprung, love may be in the air, the weather is warming up and our attention turns to enjoying the finer things in life. Every Taurus has a deeply defined sense of taste, putting all that the world has to offer under an intense scrutiny and savoring only the best whenever he or she has the chance. While the Sun is in Taurus, people of all astrological signs are bitten by the luxury bug. From April 20 through May 20, everyone will have an encounter with the material world and pursue love through an idealized sense of wealth. This does not mean a frivolous spending spree; Taurus is notoriously aware of the value of his or her dollar. Luxuriousness applies to the best of the best, not the most expensive. When a Taurus is interested, the value of something far exceeds whatever its price might be.
The planet Venus rules Taurus. This is the planet that rules love, art and beauty, so whenever the Sun visits this zodiac sign we are all driven to embrace the finer things in life that can be held and touched, be they a gorgeous lover, a fine piece of jewelry or a large handful of cash. These things all have value that exists in the present, unlike spiritual values (connected to an eternal future) or emotional values (connected to our sentimental attachment to the past). Venus’ concern with value makes it the planet that demands all be revealed and judged, while Taurus is the zodiac sign most concerned with the here and now.
Read below to see where love and luxury will meet up for you between April 20 and May 20 of this year. Is the charging bull heading toward you with a delivery of the best that money can buy or a pointed suggestion for you to head toward the exit with a new love on your arm? The pace of the Sun in the zodiac will reveal it all, sign by sign …
Aries March 21 – April 19
The Sun in Taurus can seduce you into thinking that a like-minded person may be your soulmate. Are you trying too hard to impress this person when all you have to do is discuss what you believe and he or she will be putty in your hands?
Taurus April 20 – May 20
Your solar return signals a birthday and as much as you want to let love rule all, the things you will be getting to unwrap seem to be more important than before. It is only if things are going well with your lover that your lust for material gain is soothed.
Gemini May 21 – June 21

Cancer June 22 – July 22
While the Sun is in Taurus, you have a month to get the press and acclaim for which you have been aiming. Is there a project that needs special attention? Perhaps something you buy soon will make everyone turn their head and take a second look at you. Will your ex be among your audience?
Leo July 23 – August 22
The opportunity to expand your career possibilities presents itself. Are you willing to relocate while the Sun visits Taurus in order to meet the right people? There could be a long-distance relationship intertwined with your decision, so take time to ponder the ramifications.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
A lover from a far off place could come into your life while the Sun is in Taurus. Look for the flirting to speed up from casual to constant in record time. You might have to avoid criticizing things as this person may think that you are a snob or spoiled by your comfortable position in the world.
Libra September 23 – October 22
There is a lot of worry over the fate of what other people are thinking and doing. If you are becoming preoccupied with what a rival is getting accomplished, stop now before it becomes an obsession. Invest in a new business venture that takes up your time and rewards you for paying attention.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21

Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
The Sun’s visit to Taurus coincides with a promotion at work if you are employed or the best job prospect in a long while if you have been looking for work. Good-looking coworkers are more tempting than ever before if you are looking for a relationship to develop quickly.
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
You might splurge on a work of art or book of poetry or make a grand purchase of a cultural artifact that is important to you. If you have been less than generous with a lover, your aesthetic pursuit will be your only source of pleasure while the Sun is in Taurus.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
While you stay around the house in order to please a lover, the Sun’s visit to Taurus delivers some inexpensive solutions to making your love nest a true castle. The transformation produces tension until your brilliant redecoration is complete.
