Say what? Your zodiac sign is famous for consistency, but the only constant in your 2023 Taurus horoscope is change!
Repeat after us, Taurus: Change is good. And it’s lucky—especially in the second half of this year, when a fresh 12-year chapter of your life begins anew. In the first few months of 2023, push yourself to (lovingly) release people and situations that are no longer a fit. Distance yourself from draining friendships and energy vampires. Your reward? Sweet success.
If your career’s been moving at a slower pace for the past few years, get ready for professional liftoff this spring! A surprising supporter could emerge to champion your work and open doors. (Where did THEY come from?) Keep everything on the up-and-up and avoid any shortcuts or shady schemes. The temptation to gamble will be strong in 2023, but this is ultimately a marathon, not a sprint.
Taurus will be lucky with: Embracing a total life makeover, taking calculated risks
Taurus will be challenged with: Curbing your impulses, letting go of people and possessions you’ve outgrown

2023 Taurus horoscope highlights
Love is sweet and sentimental—and also sensual—for Taurus in 2023
Where’s the balance between “me” and “we”? That’s the question as the North Node hovers in Taurus until July 17. If you’ve been hyperextending yourself in relationships, rein that in. In 2023, developing your own interests makes you highly attractive—and it might be the “warning shot” your S.O. needs to step up their game. Meanwhile, the karmic South Node in Scorpio could connect you to a meant-to-be mate.
Has a relationship been rocky? The May 5 lunar eclipse delivers a critical “choose or lose” moment. If it’s all green flags, you’ll enjoy a sentimental summer while your ruler, romantic Venus, gets cozy in Leo from June 5 to October 8. Cohabitation or other home matters could be on the table, but brace for speed bumps while Venus is retrograde from July 22 to September 3.
Buckle up! Career growth will be sudden and rapid for Taurus in 2023
With so much fresh-start energy swirling around, Bulls might not be sure which direction to charge in first! Not only is renegade Uranus electrifying your sign all year, but on May 16, horizon-expanding Jupiter bounds into Taurus for the first time in a decade. Comfort zone—what’s that? With the galactic gambler pouring Miracle-Gro on your life until May 25, 2024, seize any opportunity to travel, learn and experiment with new income models. You’ve already been stretching since the lunar North Node landed in Taurus on January 18, 2022.
Good news for your 2023 Taurus horoscope comes midyear! You’ll have that destiny-driven fuel in your tanks until July 17. Your dedicated exploration could bring a rich manifestation with the Taurus full moon on October 28—the final lunar eclipse in a trio that began on November 19, 2021. And as powerhouse Pluto weaves in and out of your career zone starting March 23, you’re heading back into boss mode for a fresh, 21-year cycle!
Get ready to sweat during this sporty year, Taurus.
Get your glow on! When robust Jupiter lands in your sign on May 16, it kicks off a yearlong cycle of vitality. But don’t wait until spring to clean up your eating, detox your habits, hydrate and sweat (then hydrate and sweat again). Hit that in the first half of 2023 so you can be ready to enjoy a sporty, active summer.
Jupiter can drive up indulgence, so make it your goal to be a “healthy hedonist” with treats that do your body good. And when the South Node backs into Libra on July 17, you’ll need a pleasurable routine that keeps you inspired. Try core-based workouts and anxiety-busting meditations.
Taurus reconnects to roots, reunites with fam.
Family reunion time! Your ruling star Venus sashays through Leo, showering your fourth house of kin with sentimental vibes from June 5 to October 8. Reconnect with relatives or “chosen family” to celebrate your bond. Head’s up: Venus spins retrograde from July 22 to September 3 which could throw a wrench in planning or arouse some old feuds. Try to schedule any big events before or after those dates.
With Saturn heading into your community zone for three years this March 7, you’ll be judged by the company you keep. Join an elite networking group, apply for that country club or take on a board member position for a community organization!
Your 2023 Taurus horoscope, by the planets
Jupiter in Aries and Taurus
Jupiter in Aries:
For the first five months of the year, free-spirited Jupiter drifts through Aries and your twelfth house of cathartic release. This mystical, reflective phase only rolls around every 12-13 years. While life won’t come to a standstill, can you learn to appreciate the unhurried, peaceful pace?
Jupiter in Taurus:
Jupiter makes its long-awaited arrival in Taurus, blazing a trail through your first house of self- expression and identity until May 25, 2024! This is absolutely a reason to celebrate!
Mars in Gemini
Your money moves could lead you in all sorts of fascinating directions in the first quarter of 2023. On January 12, action planet Mars snaps out of its ten-week retrograde. But what is the true key to success for you, Taurus?
Saturn in Pisces
On March 7, 2023, ambitious Saturn arrives in Pisces, visiting your communal eleventh house for the first time in 29.5 years and activating your esprit de corps. You’re no longer keen to call the shots alone. How will you make a success of this concept while Saturn splashes through Pisces’ enlightened waters until February 13, 2026?
Pluto in Aquarius
This year, Pluto only visits Aquarius for a brief preview spell, from March 23 to June 11. Your evolution from nomad to mogul won’t happen overnight. Pluto weaves back and forth between Capricorn and Aquarius a couple more times before plowing ahead through Aquarius from November 19, 2024 to January 19, 2044.
Pluto is slow-moving, strategic and super secretive. Ready yourself for some long-range planning.
