Aries season, it's been real. We kicked off a new astrological year with the sign of the ram last month, and it put a fire under all of us when it came to starting new projects and speaking our minds.

Prepare to feel more tuned into the present moment because the sun has left behind high-energy Aries in exchange for Taurus. While some of us may feel bittersweet about the change, others will be reveling in it. It's a good time to be an earth sign.

As a fixed Earth sign, Taurus energy tends to be grounded, slow-moving, and very much rooted in the physical realm. This 2019 Taurus season, from 20 April to 20 May, is also the start of a long chapter of internal metamorphoses, which began when Pluto started retrograde on April 24.

Of course, the coming month will bring all different sorts of ups and downs for everyone, so here's what Taurus season 2019 means for each zodiac sign.

1. Taurus (20 Apr - 20 May)

Happy birthday Taurus! You've survived another year and you should look back on just how much you've experienced and learned. It's time for you to focus on who you are becoming, as opposed to how you've seen yourself in the past. Don't be afraid to make a big change that lets the world know who you are now. What you do now will only enrich your growth. Anything that you can do to get out of your normal routine and shake things up is going to feel amazing.

2. Gemini (21 May - 20 Jun)

Pay attention to your dreams, feelings, and intuition for practical guidance on how to strengthen and stabilize your inner world. Look at change as a process to help you grow. Hitting your goals is going to feel especially excellent this month.

3. Cancer (21 Jun - 22 Jul)

As Taurus season begins the moon wanes, giving you the chance to reach your goals. Take time to visualize your goals this month. Consider how you bring joy to your work, and how you bring happiness to the lives of your loved ones.


4. Leo (23 Jul - 22 Aug)

Make the most of this time by taking concrete steps toward achieving long-term goals. Go out and enjoy nature, anything to quiet the mind & experience some tranquility.

5. Virgo (23 Aug - 22 Sep)

What you're really feeling inspired to do is open your mind and drink in new experiences. Leave behind your predictable routine and try something new. If an opportunity to go the distance arrives, don't let doubt hold you back. Trust that the wind wants to take you places. Broadening your physical, mental and spiritual horizons -- through travel, study or meditation -- gives you valuable new insights into how to create greater security and abundance.

6. Libra (23 Sep - 22 Oct)

Flexibility will be your greatest strength. Hold your head high as your ruling planet Venus moves through fiery Aries. Keeping a positive mindset will help you navigate the unexpected. You've got this.

7. Scorpio (23 Oct - 21 Nov)

It's time for you to go back to the drawing board when Pluto, your planetary ruler goes retrograde. Take an objective look back at your most important ideas from last year and where your learning opportunities lie. Look for feedback from your friends and coworkers to get a better scope of your goals and where they should be.

8. Sagittarius (22 Nov - 21 Dec)

Use this earthy influence to implement new and improved self-care habits and strengthen your overall sense of health and well-being. Make a list of your priorities to your happiness and well being first, and fit in time to achieve your goals. The key to success is consistency.

9. Capricorn (22 Dec - 19 Jan)

Cut out all the nonsense in your life preventing you from feeling a deeper sense of joy. This nonsense could take the form of a mental block or habits no longer serving you. Take time to inspect your goals and if they are truly serving your needs.

10. Aquarius (20 Jan - 18 Feb)

Balance is critical this season, so be sure to take care of your health and incorporate something nurturing into your daily routine. Pluto's retrogrades only occur once per year - look back at the hurdles you've overcome and use your adaptability to your advantage. Get out of your comfort zone and expand your mind by pursuing your niche interests.

11. Pisces (19 Feb - 20 Mar)

Reflect on your aspirations when transformative Pluto goes retrograde. Consider how you're spending your energy and if you can redirect it towards healing and relaxing instead of breaking new ground.

12. Aries (21 Mar - 19 Apr)

After celebrating your season, the sun is ready to help you buckle down this week, Aries. Take in the spring weather and enjoy the sunshine. Prepare for mysterious Pluto's retrograde by looking inward. Take time to clarify what you have, what you need and what you want.

Be sure to meditate, chill, and make time for a little journaling or quiet space this month after a very busy and powerful birthday period!

I Went To "The Bachelor" Auditions

And here's why you won’t be seeing me on TV.

It’s finally time to admit my guilty pleasure: I have always been a huge fan of The Bachelor.

I can readily admit that I’ve been a part of Bachelor fantasy leagues, watch parties, solo watching — you name it, I’ve gone the whole nine yards. While I will admit that the show can be incredibly trashy at times, something about it makes me want to watch it that much more. So when I found out that The Bachelor was holding auditions in Houston, I had to investigate.

While I never had the intention of actually auditioning, there was no way I would miss an opportunity to spend some time people watching and check out the filming location of one of my favorite TV shows.

The casting location of The Bachelor, The Downtown Aquarium in Houston, was less than two blocks away from my office. I assumed that I would easily be able to spot the audition line, secretly hoping that the endless line of people would beg the question: what fish could draw THAT big of a crowd?

As I trekked around the tanks full of aquatic creatures in my bright pink dress and heels (feeling somewhat silly for being in such nice clothes in an aquarium and being really proud of myself for somewhat looking the part), I realized that these auditions would be a lot harder to find than I thought.

Finally, I followed the scent of hairspray leading me up the elevator to the third floor of the aquarium.

The doors slid open. I found myself at the end of a large line of 20-something-year-old men and women and I could feel all eyes on me, their next competitor. I watched as one woman pulled out her travel sized hair curler, someone practiced answering interview questions with a companion, and a man (who was definitely a little too old to be the next bachelor) trying out his own pick-up lines on some of the women standing next to him.

I walked to the end of the line (trying to maintain my nonchalant attitude — I don’t want to find love on a TV show). As I looked around, I realized that one woman had not taken her eyes off of me. She batted her fake eyelashes and looked at her friend, mumbling something about the *grumble mumble* “girl in the pink dress.”

I felt a wave of insecurity as I looked down at my body, immediately beginning to recognize the minor flaws in my appearance.

The string hanging off my dress, the bruise on my ankle, the smudge of mascara I was sure I had on the left corner of my eye. I could feel myself begin to sweat. These women were all so gorgeous. Everyone’s hair was perfectly in place, their eyeliner was done flawlessly, and most of them looked like they had just walked off the runway. Obviously, I stuck out like a sore thumb.

I walked over to the couches and sat down. For someone who for the most part spent most of the two hours each Monday night mocking the cast, I was shocked by how much pressure and tension I felt in the room.

A cop, stationed outside the audition room, looked over at me. After a brief explanation that I was just there to watch, he smiled and offered me a tour around the audition space. I watched the lines of beautiful people walk in and out of the space, realizing that each and every one of these contestants to-be was fixated on their own flaws rather than actually worrying about “love.”

Being with all these people, I can see why it’s so easy to get sucked into the fantasy. Reality TV sells because it’s different than real life. And really, what girl wouldn’t like a rose?

Why was I so intimidated by these people? Reality TV is actually the biggest oxymoron. In real life, one person doesn’t get to call all the shots. Every night isn’t going to be in a helicopter looking over the south of France. A real relationship depends on more than the first impression.

The best part of being in a relationship is the reality. The best part about yourself isn’t your high heels. It’s not the perfect dress or the great pick-up lines. It’s being with the person that you can be real with. While I will always be a fan of The Bachelor franchise, this was a nice dose of reality. I think I’ll stick to my cheap sushi dates and getting caught in the rain.

But for anyone who wants to be on The Bachelor, let me just tell you: Your mom was right. There really are a lot of fish in the sea. Or at least at the aquarium.
