420 Isn't Just a Day to Smoke Weed

Are you ready for the best holiday of the year? This 420 is an especially exciting one, because it’s also the day Venus moves into Aries and the first day of Taurus season! As these changes move into effect, the general mood changes big time with the shift in astro-weather. You’re transitioning from bright, excitable Aries season to the vibes of calm, cool, and collected Taurus, while at the same time, the way you approach relationships goes from the ultra-emotional, compassionate, dreamy style of Venus in Pisces to the vivacious and bold attitude of Venus in Aries. This Sun/Venus meld promises to combine perfectly to make sure you’re having a fun and exciting time with friends while still having plenty of you-time to chill out and unwind.

Taurus is the zodiac’s biggest stoner by far, which is fitting since Taurus season usually starts on 4/20. Don’t get it twisted—Taurus is also the zodiac’s hardest worker and always takes care of business before unwinding and having fun, which makes this an especially productive month where you can wrap up any big projects for class or work. Taurus is the sign most likely to reward itself after a long day by toking up, getting stoned, and vegging out! Taurus isn’t known for being very emotional or philosophical. Instead, it’s more materialistic and only concerned with the physical world—the tangible things it can see, hear, smell, taste, and touch. Taurus tends to be such a fan of weed because it can experience cannabis’ tension soothing, anxiety reducing, appetite increasing, aphrodisiacal effects quite nicely with its very tactile way of living. You can channel these sensual Taurean vibes this 4/20 by trying out CBD skincare products, picking up a tincture or oil, or rolling up a new strain of flower! For some product suggestions this 420, be sure to check out our post from last week.

There’s just one thing to look out for—Taurus loves earthly pleasures so much that it’s can be somewhat hedonistic. Don’t waste the whole month getting high as a kite—Taurus energy is best used to keep you grounded and focused so you can get through the end of the semester or wrap up that big presentation at the office. Basically, this is the month to work hard so you can play hard, especially if you’re a Taurus, Virgo, or a Capricorn! Taurus season is an optimistic and productive time of year for these earth signs and brings extra benefits in the form of travel opportunities and a busier love life! Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius feel the pressure a little more this month. It’s a critical time of year for these signs where they can level-up big time at work, seriously tidy up their home life, or take a relationship more seriously—as long as they’re willing to put in the work.

Venus in Aries’ influence only promises to enhance the nice time you’re having this Taurus season. Venus is the planet of love and affection, and in fiery Aries, it helps you approach others in a more eager and bold way. Since Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, representative of fresh starts, you’re especially excited about connecting with new people. You’re already having a great 420 celebration thanks to Taurus season’s influence, but with how charismatic and upbeat you feel with Venus in Aries, you can bank on meeting new friends at your smoke sesh and having an especially nice time with them. Venus is also the planet of pleasure, and in newness-loving Aries it feels even nicer now to splurge on a special treat like a new piece of glass or some fire edibles and share with friends!

The fun-loving, high-energy vibes of Venus in Aries will be especially on for the fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. For the next few weeks you’re adding more and more names to your friends list. They tend to stay at the “acquaintance” level for now, but someone that vibes particularly well with you can easily become your next bestie. Romantically, Venus in Aries brings a string of burning-hot crushes—but the spark tends to fizzle out fast. Aries is easily bored and doesn’t mind moving on to something more appealing if it loses interest. However—if you match with someone you have real chemistry with, the spark can catch and become a blazing-hot love affair. The temperature in your most important relationships are rising for Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. Your best friend, S.O., boss, and family are even more important in your life now. Family gatherings, professional meetings, and tons of time with your bestie/boo are on your agenda. This helps you to level-up big time and get the promotion you’ve been looking at, get closer with mom and dad, or turn your situation-ship into something more serious.

Taurus season continues until May 21 and Venus stays in Aries until May 15. This is accompanied Mercury, planet of communication, also blazing it in Aries, and Mars, planet of action and energy, hanging out in hyper-social Gemini, motivating you to flex your going out muscles. This astro-weather is the perfect time for social outings with your best friends where you can also meet new faces expand your social circle. No 420 plans yet? Ring in Taurus season connecting with like-minded new friends and join Nice Paper, Estrohaze and Cannaclusive, we’ll be hosting a consumption friendly event in Brooklyn. Happy holidaze, nice people!
