Hello dear readers and welcome to Taurus Season! The Sun visits a new zodiac sign every 30 days. During each season everyone feels the influence of the corresponding sign. Taurus season 2020 begins April 19 and ends May 20. During this period of time there will also be the Taurus New Moon on April 22 which brings an encouraging stretch to our minds and a new vision to life. So for this reason I thought to share some pictures where I represented a Taurus Woman. This photoshoot was a collaboration with Smeruci with whom I worked to bring this project into life. I myself am a Taurus, rising sign Taurus so for a very long period in my life I have been so obsessed with this fact and everything about Taurus which matches a lot with my personality. So since many years ago I have imagined myself being part of a photography project where I would see myself with some bull horns and everything that would represent this sign. So here you go:
The horns, the jewelries and the cape are all handmade pieces of art by Smeruci who were able to put some symbolical meaning to the whole character. The jewelries contain crystals such as smokey quartz, clear quartz, Carnelians, Galena raw specimen and lava stones. They are also combined with sculpted poppy flowers which also represent our roots and the country where we are born, Albania. There are lots of poppy fields in Albania and they bloom a lot during this season but also the colors this flower includes are black and red which also stand for our flag. Basically this character is a mix of zodiac characteristics plus some traditional approaching and of course some magic!

The outfit is inspired by the pagan themed fashion combining a long black skirt with a loose blouse, a gothic style corset and a black cloak with the pointed hood which I adore. Also the make up is based on pagan symbols and details.

We decided to make this photoshoot at a castle in Cape of Rodon in Albania. We chose the image of the castle because we thought it fits with the idea that Taurus is an Earth sing and a steady, conservative and reliable one. Also it’s energy is mostly about grounding and cultivating a sense of ease and contentment.
In ancient days, Taurus was the sign tied to agriculture and the land. Taurus cannot operate in a chaotic environment. It needs a solid, safe and comfortable environment which allows this sign to think. They love comfort so they prefer to surround themselves with natural elements, flowers, plants or just visiting nature in a regular basis. Taurus is the sign that turns ideas into tangible reality. They need to take a lot of time in making decisions, but once they make up their mind, they will never second-guess themselves. During Taurus season, don’t rush on the practicalities of any plan because with this sensible sign, we need to carefully consider every detail, ensuring a high-quality and elegant outcome. Tasteful Taurus loves life’s finer things and hates it when the things are not done in a a proper and planed way for they are deeply focused on every detail. This is also the perfect time to determine yourself into starting or continuing the projects you have been thinking of and also a great time for investing in quality objects that stand the test of time.
“Taureans are considered the most sensual signs of the zodiac, for if Aries symbolizes the newborn baby and the most essential elements of the life force, Taurus typifies the little toddler who has not yet learned language but explores the world through his or her senses. This talent stays within them as they grew up.”

What we often see as stubbornness in Taurus can be interpreted as commitment, and their ability to complete tasks whatever it takes is uncanny. Taurus is ruled by sensual Venus which except sensuality, stands for love, beauty, satisfaction, creativity and gratitude which makes taureans very creative and sensible about the essence of beauty and feelings. They feel the need to always be surrounded by love and beauty, turned to the material world and physical pleasures. That’s why the Bullish season will motivate us all to get creative and to embrace our artistic and sensual self more. This makes them excellent partners, always being there for people they love. So this is a time to anchor in our relationships, desires, and goals. It’s time to take stock and give to those who have shown us respect and reflect about people who have been there for you recently, and who’s keeping you grounded. Recognize and be grateful for these kind of relationships. It’s time to be more open and explore our loving and sensual side and to dive in self-care rituals that brighten our start of each day. Are you ready to endure and stick to your choices until they reach the point of personal satisfaction?
The meaning of the Wandering Bull: being the one who betrayed the goddess Hera herself, this is a being that has to wander the Earth in order to find freedom. As if something was always poking them behind their back, reminding them of happiness that once was, stinging and pushing forwards, they close up in their own worlds, lonely and separated from their core. To find love, a Taurus has to travel the world, change perspective or make a shift in their entire belief system and their system of values.
Taurus: They smile like they’ve never cried, fight like they’ve never lost, love like they’ve never been hurt and live like they’d die tomorrow…
