Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus, traditionally known as the’Goddess of Love’. Actually, Venus rules both Taurus and Libra, and as a rule, she holds court over two areas of life: love and money. Obviously, that is simplifying and diminishing the full power of Venus, as she is much more complex than that!
The planet Venus deals with what we value in life – our sentiments, compassion and what gives us pleasure. Taureans often possess great beauty, charm, grace and artistic talents, and they are always trying to blend cooperation, love, unity and harmony between people. When any of these things are not working in their life, they feel out of sorts. Therefore they like to maintain an even balance to feel comfortable within themselves.
On the more negative side, these people can be indifferent, perhaps even superficial, and sometimes overly flirtatious. So basically, the crux of the matter for Taurean and Libran personalities and their happiness, is to learn how to blend and maintain this fine balance in their daily life. Once this is done, they will be able to face every day with a sense of inner peace.
The sun is in the sign of Taurus from April 21st to May 22nd. Taurus being an earth sign, represents,’the freshly plowed earth of springtime, ready for the seed’.
The key phrase for the sign of Taurus is’I have’. In the physical body this sign rules the cerebellum and the throat. Many famous singers are born in the sign of Taurus.
People born in this sign can sometimes be very stubborn, slow, steady and don’t like to be pushed into anything. This is where’the bull’ comes from! They must be given a bit of time to assimilate new ideas, but once they get this time, they eventually come around. Security and the material world are of great importance to the people born under the sign of Taurus. They are considered the’money sign’ of the zodiac. I like to joke that before they are out of nappies, they have already established their own savings account at a local bank!
