Taurus 2021 Horoscope (April 20 - May 20)

It’s Taurus’s time to shine. The dependable earth sign encourages us to find stability and keep our goals in sight. 

Figure out what you want, make your plans and gather resources for the future. With your foundations set for success, you can aim for bigger and better things.


Knight of Cups | Queen of Cups | Nine of Wands

The sun is shining and spring is in the air, but you feel like there’s a dark cloud over your head. Old troubles are haunting you. The feelings and emotions they’re bringing up are causing problems in your home and workplace. If left unchecked, those feelings and thoughts will make you miserable. 

Don’t be afraid to take a mental health day or a mental health week. There’s no shame in taking a break or confiding in a friend. If your problems are bigger, seek professional help. You deserve peace of mind, but it might not be easy. 

Sometimes other people hold us back. Other times, we get in our own way. It’s time to stop letting your past and negative thoughts run you ragged. Understand your struggles and find the help you need to continue through life stress-free. 


Five of Swords | King of Cups | Eight of Swords 

Things are not entirely going your way. While some problems have been laid to rest, others have gotten worse. It’s time to make use of your Taurus energy. 

You have boundless determination and patience to see your problems straightened out. This season might see you talking out your issues with coworkers. Or sitting down with your SO for a long-needed emotional check-in. 

Whatever your issue is, it’s time to work them out. Don’t let your problems pile up on you. Although you may feel helpless, the power to remove your problems and reach success lies within you.

Empress | Ten of Swords | Two of Cups

Life has not been too kind to you. But the work you’ve put towards developing positive relationships is helping you push through. 

You’ve got solid support systems at work and home to help you get through hard times. You will need them in the future, as the bad times are not far off. 

The going may get tough for a while, and you may want to isolate yourself. However, remember your friends and family are there to help you. Don’t be afraid to reach out in times of need.



Nine of Wands | Three of Cups | Knight of Cups

The powers that be have put you through the wringer. You’ve weathered the storm of life and come out mostly intact. 

It’s a testament to your inner strength and the power of friendship. It’s not often that we pull ourselves out of trouble on our own, so pat ourselves on the back. 

Use these lessons on charity and unity to help others, and make the world a better place. 


The Lovers | Knight of Swords | The Devil

It doesn’t feel good to go about life without a plan. After the confusion you experienced in Aries, you know how unpleasant it all is. 

Steady and reliable Taurus is helping you experience the peace that comes with balance. Don’t let others destroy your newfound peace.

It might be a rude colleague getting on your nerves or bad energy making you stressed out, either way, it’s on you to push those negative energies out of your life. You are the only person in control of your life and no one gets to ruin it for you.

The Chariot | Ace of Wands | Queen of Cups 

You may not have shaken off the bad energy that haunted you in Aries. Whether that bad feeling is a person or a state of mind, it’s got you feeling out of sorts. Either life is dragging you along without your consent, or you’re forcing your way through life with little results.

Because of this, life seems to have lost some luster. The stress of working too hard or dealing with too much stress is making you feel fragile. You’re feeling exhausted and neglected, either because you’re giving others too much or letting them take too much from you. 

Be selfish. Treat yourself to peace and quiet. You deserve to sleep easy every once in a while. 


Ace of Swords | The Hierophant | Six of Cups

After a less than stellar time in Aries, it seems to be tough for you. You’re stuck in a fog and you’re running into problems wherever you go. Whether it’s not being on the same page or having a major difference of opinion, things are getting spicy and not in a fun way. 

It might help if you didn’t carry your stress and problems all on your own. Delegate, confide in others, stay open to others’ opinions and thoughts. Teamwork makes the dream work. You’re used to complete control but that’s not working out right now. It’s becoming a negative pattern. 

It’s time to find a new way to work with others and get rid of the habits that make your life difficult. Improvement starts with you. Figure out the root of your problems and find ways to correct the behaviors that make life difficult. 


Eight of Wands | Four of Cups | King of Swords

You felt like you were on top of the world. Unfortunately, things are slowing down and it’s cramping your style.

It may be time to take a break – not from the stress of working, but the stress of trying to make things work. A watched pot never boils, and you attempting to force results probably won’t do any good in the long run.

Two of Swords |  Three of Cups | The World

You’ve got a difficult decision to make. Life has put you between a rock and a hard place. This isn’t the first time you’ve been stuck in the dark. 

Luckily you have experience dealing with the unexpected as well as a support system, so you can find your way out of this rut. The only downside is you have to choose between two evils. Make your decision, get out of your rut and find your happy ending. 


The Magician | Ten of Swords | Five of Cups

Someone or something in your life is pulling the wool over your eyes. Life seems nice and happy, but there is some element hiding disaster – big or small. You need to find it, whether it’s fake friends or two-faced colleagues, then remove it. 

Or it’s just a change in attitude and outlook on life. It will help you breathe easier and hold your head up higher. The experience may be painful or stressful, but you’ll find yourself in a better place for it. 


Six of Swords | Two of Swords | Nine of Pentacles

You’re trying your hardest to move forward. Your old job and relationships are holding you back though. They’ve got their hooks in you, and you’ve got no interest in getting them out. This has put you in a difficult position. 

You can stay where you are, held back by old news, or move forward into the unknown. Neither is particularly appealing.

But taking a step forward, no matter how frightening or disappointing it may be, will still do you some good. Remember, you have to put effort into changing your life. Choose and see where you’ll end up.

Two of Swords | Five of Cups | Knight of Pentacles

You’ve got a choice to make and none of your options look good. But the longer you wait to make a decision, the worse everything will become. Once you’ve made your choice, you’re going on to bigger and better things. 

It may not feel like this in the beginning though.

Think of this upcoming decision as a final warning. Your relationships are unfulfilling, your work is uninspiring and life feels dull. You have the chance to make it change, but only if you choose to do so.
