Your essential guide to the week ahead from Citizen Femme’s resident astrologer, Zana Wilberforce.
Taurus season is upon us, bringing self-care and earthly pleasures to the forefront of our needs. We’re feeling grounded but glam, favouring long baths and lengthy pamper sessions in true Taurus-style. Slow yoga, scented candles, and bodily care are all part of the agenda as we realign our wellness goals while channelling the sign of the bull for the next four weeks ahead.
December 22 – January 19
The Sun will be hanging out in reliable Taurus for the next four weeks which is great news for your sign. The prevailing earth energy means you’re in your element. Though you thrive on a heavy workload, don’t forget to check in with your body, ensuring a balanced diet and an undisturbed wind-down routine.
January 20 – February 18
You’re happy to hunker down this week when the Sun enters Taurus on Monday 19 April. Taurus season is all about self-care which means a wellness weekend away could be calling. Look into Birch’s ‘midweeker’ for a creative escape. The research process is just as soothing for your ever-busy mind.
February 19 – March 20
You could be feeling more grounded this week when the Sun enters Taurus on 19 April, kicking off Taurus season 2021. A long bubble bath with energising lavender or eucalyptus oil is one way to indulge in the slow-moving Taurus season energy. Light a scented candle to add to the soothing ambience.
March 21 – April 19
Now is the perfect time to start a fixed workout routine with the Sun entering stabilising Taurus on 19 April. You’re naturally energetic and require moments of stillness to realign your thoughts. Slow and steady poses with a focus on the upper body will help you with concentration and opening up the throat chakra.
April 20 – May 20
The Sun enters your sign on Monday 19 April, putting you in the spotlight for the next four weeks. Ruled by sensual Venus, you love the finer things in life. Get pampering with a soothing facemask and this Typology Toning Body Scrub. As it’s your birthday season, you might be tempted to invest in a signature piece like an artfully crafted clutch.
May 21 – June 20
Your ruling planet Mercury and the Sun both slink into Taurus this week. Though a part of you is yearning to get back out there, there’s a pull to rest up in preparation for your subsequent birthday season shenanigans. Try a recipe with a fancy ingredient like truffle oil to channel Taurus decadence.
June 21 – July 22

July 23 – August 22
The start of Taurus season this week helps you feel centred and grounded. Being able to unlock your creativity in various art forms could spark some ground-breaking ideas.

September 23 – October 22
Your inner homebody makes a show when the Sun hunkers down in steady Taurus this week. Sink into a soothing meditation routine for grounding, ideally on a daily basis to keep your wandering mind at peace. You may want to keep a journal close to jot down any noteworthy inspirations.
October 23 – November 21
As we move away from the frenetic energy of Aries season and enter Taurus season for the next four weeks, you could be feeling extra intuitive. Embracing the slow and sensual comes naturally to you now more than ever, right down to the music you listen to or the way you decorate your home.
November 22 – December 21
You’re torn between hunkering down for Taurus season or embracing your inner hedonist. You can combine the two by simply having a day to follow your whims. Getting out and about or having an impromptu dance party (solo, in the living room) unlocks your creative genius.
