TAURUS....The Bull...21 April to 20 May (My #4 granddaughter and late sister-in-law were born under this sign).
Taurus, is the Fixed Earth sign, and represents the fertile earth herself. Taurus specialises in making people and things grow. The Earth element means you are a Sensate Type, physical, sensuous and sensually driven, slow-moving.
Your Fixed quality means you have fixed attachments, favoured ways of doing things, regular habits by preference, earthy routines unlikely to vary. It also means you seek depth of connection, take your time, display great patience, make things grow. You can also get stuck in tender traps, hold in your feelings and close your minds to other people's values if they are too different from yours. You are most happy when you feel an organic connection with your body and with nature, while putting your higher values into practice. You are 'the utiliser' of the zodiac, the second sign, and your key phrase is "I have".
Planetary Ruler is VENUS: Planet of love and pleasure.
Substance, beauty, consumption and pleasure are your earthy concerns. In ancient Arabic astrology Taurus is "of cold and dry nature" and "its angel holds the keys of the creation of paradise and of hell." As one of the signs linked to the desire nature, you are well aware that desires fulfilled can be heaven or hell.
Venus is associated with harmony, companionship, beauty, love, luxury, sensitivity and indulgence. Venus rules both Taurus and Libra. and Taurus is 'the night sign' of Venus. In the body Taurus rules the neck, throat, thyroid gland, larynx, vocal chords and shoulders. Sufficient times of quiet and rest as well as regular rests from rich foods and drink make a healthy happy Bull.
Venus represents the bounty of balanced pleasures and also the harsh consequences if desires overpower love. Her special message to Taurus is to enjoy the bounty of life guided by the light of love.
My sister-in-law always had a beautiful garden so obviously had a green thumb. She admired lovely things and her home was always well kept. She certainly had to show patience as my late brother could be somewhat trying at times. Not having seen my granddaughter for over 11 years I can't really say whether she is a true Taurus or not. Were you or a member of your family born under this sign and, if so, do you run true to form?
