The year brings an increasing feeling of hope, optimism, and spiritual protection, dear Taurus. Events in 2023 continue to expand your innate compassion, warmth, or inner eye. Your intuition heightens to possibly even uncanny levels.

The biggest headline of the year for you is Jupiter in your sign from mid-May forward. You are more expansive, exuberant, and enthusiastic. This transit heightens your optimism and increases your generosity. What happened in the past is not very important to you now – it’s the future you’re eyeing now. You feel freer to be yourself, and others accept you more readily. Intimate opportunities are likely to abound, or it becomes easy to count on others for support. It’s a great time to attract or enhance a committed relationship or pool your resources with someone. There is a risk of overindulgence.

Especially in June, you feel ready to set plans in motion that will allow you to accomplish a cherished endeavor or dream. Turning a long-standing dream into a reality is a possibility.

Until May, you might find more joy in time to yourself. You’re building your inner confidence. Nevertheless, reminders to take more downtime persist as the year advances with the North Node moving out of your sign in July. Aim to take time from your busy schedule to recoup now and then. Avoid pushing yourself too hard, and don’t neglect your more spiritual needs as you pursue other goals.

Saturn’s move into your eleventh house this year helps you be more selective with whom and how you spend your time, which may be necessary to help you focus, simplify, and restore your energy. You’re taking your personal life more seriously. Some friendships can face tests. If one door shuts, another seems to open in 2023 with Jupiter’s transit of your sign.
