Every zodiac sign has wonderful gifts associated with it, but there are also challenges that you might face, especially if the sun is currently in the your sun sign. Stones work to encourage your gifts and help you face your challenges.
The sun is currently in Taurus (April 19th - May 20th). If your sun sign is not Taurus, these stones are still useful. The zodiac energy of each sign surrounds all of us based on the time of the year. The energies of Taurus are at work now.
Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac. When the sun enters Taurus is one of the best times of the year. The weather is starting to get warmer, the heaviness and struggles of winter are lifting, it's time to start enjoying the life you are living again. Taurus brings happiness and warmth following the frantic, get-up-and-go energy of Aries. The Taurus energy is calmer and full of gratitude. Taurus is also known to be stubborn energy. a Taurus wants what they want and won’t accept anything else. This energy can become stagnant if you don't allow yourself to be open to new people, ideas, and opportunities. Be aware of this so you don't allow yourself to become to set in your ways and miss out.
