What to Wear 

Taureans find beauty in everything, especially their clothes. You’ll find them in sensual, practical outfits (like a dress and boots on a temperate spring day) but with unique, exquisite details. Their styles are generally quite grounded, but they’ll always find a way to add a bit of luxury wherever they go.

What to Do

1. Invest in new bedding

Turning your bed into a cozy oasis isn’t usually a priority when summer rolls around, but for a Taurus, hopping into a cloud at the end of the day for a little R+R is everything. Go the extra mile with fresh sheets, whether you put yours in a new fancy detergent or invest in a new sheet set, and maybe even a cozy duvet or blanket to match. Whatever you do, make it feel as comfortable as possible. 


2. Go for a walk in a new area

Taureans love routine (even more so than Virgos, if you can believe it), so getting out of their usual to try something new is a big deal for them. And what better time than your birthday to head out on a little adventure? Take your normal hot girl walk to the next level by heading on a new route. Maybe you’ll pick up coffee from a new shop along the way or meet up with a friend to enjoy some extra time together. 


3. Host an outdoor picnic

Celebrate everything spring has to offer by hosting the most quintessential spring activity: a picnic! Invite all of your friends to a local park, your backyard, or anywhere with a little outdoor space. Taureans like to make things as extravagant as possible, so we won’t be alarmed if you bring out all the stops. If you’re too busy celebrating your birthday, you can always make it a potluck or do takeout.
