You can see what's in store for your month ahead with a 30-day Astrology Forecast, but one thing's for sure -- life is about to smell much sweeter!

Taurus is ruled by Venus, the goddess of love, which surrounds us with beauty and abundance and sensuality. Our senses are awakened to fall in love all over again with the things that make us feel good to look at, touch and taste.

As the Taurus Sun shines down at the height of spring, we're all encouraged to delight in earthly pleasures. This nurturing of self will ground us, and help us to build strong and practical foundations moving forward.

Those born from about April 16-22 were born on the Aries-Taurus cusp, and those born from about May 17-23 were born on the Taurus-Gemini cusp. Being born on the cusp simply means that you were born during the transition time between two zodiac signs, so you retain some qualities from each sign.

Indulge in the beauty and pleasure of the physical world, Taurus style -- it's good for your soul!

Here's how to make the most of life during Sun in Taurus:

What to do: Delight your senses! It's time to enjoy the best things in life. Lounge in bed with your lover, indulge in delicious food and drink, and go on hikes to breathe in all the beauty of nature. Feel alive and love it!

What to say: "No." Taurus is symbolized by the stubborn Bull because they always want to have their way. Use this Sun in Taurus energy to get your own way and make yourself happy now, and just say "no" to anything that doesn't feel right.

Where to go: Get outside! Nature-loving Taurus is most at home when surrounded by scenic wonders -- think rolling hills, fresh grass, blooming flowers and crackly forests. Plan a camping trip, go for a hike or rent a cabin in a scenic setting while the Taurus Sun shines.

What to wear: Something soft and fuzzy! Taurus is all about texture, so wear things that feel good to the touch -- cashmere, soft suede, silky fabrics and luxe leathers will do the trick.

What to buy: Shop for finest of everything you can get your hands on. Look for fragrant and gourmet things that will awaken your senses, such as chocolate, perfume and flowers. These things are not superficial or trivial -- they will nurture your soul, so spare no expense!

What to watch out for: Taurus is known for never giving up, and that's a good thing unless … you're wrong. And if you make the Bull mad, they sure can charge! Be aware of being too stubborn or having angry outbursts while the Sun is in Taurus. Make an extra effort to more flexible now.

What to look forward to: Comfort and happiness! Surround yourself with beauty and physical comforts, like a true Taurus always does, and you'll enjoy this as a beautiful opportunity to nurture your soul throughout the Sun in Taurus season.
