The stabilizing, grounding energy of Taurus season has proven to be so productive, it's likely got you feeling like your year is moving in the right direction. The weather's warmer, days are longer, and you've had time to prioritize your personal relationships, creative endeavors, and any passion projects you've started. Sticking with things isn't always easy, especially since immediate results aren't always apparent — but Taurus season is encouraging patience because the fruits of your labor are on their way. The best day in May 2021 for each zodiac sign to really utilize this fixed energy will be May 8, as it'll promise that what you've been striving to obtain will finally reach its peak.
Before the sun moves into Gemini on May 20, Venus in Taurus and Jupiter in Aquarius will be squaring off on May 8, fusing their benefic significations in order to provide you with abundant, enjoyable energy. The square aspect is commonly known as a tense aspect in astrology, but when two benefic planets are involved, it prompts tension that is pleasant, positive, and essential for growth. As Venus — planet of unity, relationships, and creativity — and Jupiter — planet of growth, abundance, and optimism — come together, you'll likely feel prompted to overindulge a bit, specifically in the area of your birth chart that contains Taurus and Aquarius. Since you've been working hard during Taurus season to get some necessary roots planted, this is a perfect time to connect with loved ones to celebrate your accomplishments.
Each zodiac sign will be experiencing the energy of this transit in different ways on May 8, so if you're looking to be enlightened, look no further.
