Happy Birthday Taurus♉!
For those born between April 20th – May 19th
The Key Phrase is: I Own.
Taurus♉ is a fixed (directed, willful), earth (grounded, stable) sign located in the 1st quadrant (self oriented/personal) of the Eastern Hemisphere of the chart. Because Taurus resides in the 2nd house of the zodiac and is ruled by the planet Venus♀, beauty and possessing objects of worth are important to Taurus. Material belongings and possessing bring a sense of peace to security-minded Taurus.
In a previous LunarNotes blog we discussed how the sign of Aries inhabits the 1st house of the natural zodiac. The first house is the cusp of the Ascendant also known as the Rising Sign. Because Taurus arrives immediately after fiery 1st house Aries, who screams they have “arrived”, Taurus asks, “What do I desire", and "What shall I possess or own”? Taurus desires to create a sense of security by collecting that which they value. In order to build this sense of security or self worth, Taurus develops a value system. That value system usually includes people, objects of lasting beauty, sensuality and the sense of touch, sensual pleasures including food, jewelry, furs, beautiful surroundings etc, the need to vocalize (Taurus rules the throat, desires, and a love nature).
The ability to earn an income and special talents may all be found in the 2nd house of the natal chart. Venus♀, Taurus’ ruling planet also reflects ability and how we socialize. Taurus is also the gardener of the zodiac and loves nature. If you have no planets in your 2nd house, look to where the ruler of that house (the cusp ruler) is located and, along with its aspects, and this will provide a glimpse of where your talents, values and earning potential is derived.
In matters of health, Taurus♉ relates to the throat and neck. Sore throats, swollen glands, or laryngitis may be more common with Taurus folks. Taurus also rules the thyroid gland which regulates weight. And since food is such an enjoyable activity, Taurus is prone to gain weight with age. Taurus is distinguishable by their lovely, throaty voice and thicker than average neckline. Singers Cher and Barbra Streisand have Taurus as their Sun sign. Because Taurus is ruled by the planet of love and beauty, Venus, many Taureans possess grace of movement and a refined elegant appearance. You prefer to purchase “quality” rather than quantity although you may be the collectors of the zodiac. Collecting provides a sense of security and comfort. The Taurus or Libran (also Venus♀ ruled) personalities are often the best dressed in the room and portray a certain amount of “class”.
Taurus is determined and often unyielding once an idea or value is set in place. Like the bull, Taurus can be absolutely, resolutely unmovable and unwavering. This is a good thing when committing to a project or an individual is required, then you can count on Taurus to “be there”. Negatively, Taurus may be materialistic and tend to hold onto beliefs, habits, things and people long after necessary. Earthy Taurus is sensual and experiences life through the 5 senses. Taurus enjoys luxurious foods and textures and needs to touch and feel everything. You are romantic and make a passionate and steady lover.
Taurus, a fertile earth sign, usually has an affinity with blossoms and gardening. Growth, talent, and nurturing are the realm of Taurus. Desire is another keyword for Taurus: desire, sometimes insatiable, and wanting.
The animal symbol for Taurus is the Bull. His horns resemble the crescent moon. The moon is exalted (feels most comfortable and at ease) in Taurus. An Earth sign, Taurus is deeply sensitive and sensual. The senses, taste, touch, sight etc. are all important to Taurus. Slow to warm up, like the bull preparing to charge, once ready and in motion, is unwavering and determined. Taurus perseveres at all costs.
Taurus’ polar opposite (2nd house: my values, talents, my security, earning potential, my money and possessions) is the intense, watery sign of Scorpio (8th house: others values, others money and possessions). The integration of “my values” versus “what others value” is a life lesson for Taurus, and contingent upon other areas (aspects) of the birth chart.
