Taurus (The Bull)
21st April - 20th May
With sensual Taurus, the Bull, as your star sign, the Sun shone through an earth sign on your birthday. The Sun in astrology stands for your inner nature, the stamp of your true character. The second sign of the Zodiac, Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and desire. A fixed (strong and solid) sign, Taurus governs practicality and security. It is a feminine sign and very magnetic.
Practical, reliable Taureans are great lovers of sensual pleasures, although you do tend to be rather stubborn, possessive and conservative. Firmly anchored in the material world, you have a fine grasp of what is needed in order to lead the good life. Of course, you are capable in emergencies, where you have an instinctive understanding of what to do, but under normal circumstances, no-one can force you into anything without due time for thought and consideration.
Tactile and Sensuous
Tactile and sensuous, you have a nose for personal comfort and physical pleasure. You are nevertheless quite pragmatic, with a good appreciation for the financial values as well as any aesthetic qualities. Taurus loves nature and natural things, but due to a fondness for comfort and ease, the Bull can be quite lazy. To preserve your health, you need to take some regular exercise and control that tendency to overindulge in rich foods and the other pleasures in life.
Taureans are very strong-willed and often quite creative. The Moon is exalted in Taurus, giving success with matters to do with the public and, combined with the influence of Venus, a passionate nature endowed with a strong sense of loyalty and fidelity. You are kind and generous with friends, with whom you develop an unspoken rapport.
Love of Music
Taurus rules the throat, giving a powerful, often beautiful voice. The influence of Venus opens up a world of musical talent and appreciation, so Taureans are good singers and musicians, or at least, love music and can be a force on the business side of music.
You also like to potter around the garden, and delight in other outdoor activities: picnics, hikes, trips to botanical gardens or the zoo. You tend to be rather subdued, but you have a fine sense of humour, and enjoy your social life.
Strong and Solid
Hunky Taurus is physically strong and solidly built. Many of you favour weight lifting or other body-building routines to keep in shape and you enjoy sports requiring strength and endurance. Health issues are often focused on problems to do with the throat and neck, or by polarity with the reproductive organs, the kidneys and so on. Taurus is naturally lazy and tends to overindulge, so a good approach to health and wellbeing would include a well-planned regime of disciplined exercise and diet.
Taurus colours are brown, russet, and turquoise. The beautiful emerald, a rare variety of the mineral beryl and as costly as a diamond, is your birthstone. The emerald's rich green color is quite appropriate too, since it is the color of money, lush countryside and relaxation. Geometrically, the emerald takes the shape of a six-sided crystal and six is the number of love. Flowers for Taurus are the red rose, daisy, lily, and daffodil.
Your sexuality is strong and deep, though not necessarily electric on the surface. Sensual, but conservative, you prefer a cosy courtship, replete with good food and wine in copious quantities. Ruled by Venus, the goddess of beauty and desire, you are strikingly attractive, in a somewhat statuesque way. Your sensuality and readiness to please make you a desirable partner for one who seeks a solid, secure and long-lasting relationship.
You have a marked fondness for all pleasures of the senses, but, of course, do not give yourself lightly to mere passing fancies. This reflects your great strength and loyalty. Elegant, erotic Venus stimulates your earthy appetites, which can be voracious when awakened. Indeed, your sexuality is more readily aroused when your appetite for edibles has been assuaged. Let's get first things first! Taurus has hungers and can be quite methodical in the satisfaction thereof. The pathway to the connubial bed is strewn with foodstuffs...
A tender meeting of like minds over a delicious repast, combined with fine wine and luscious music, in a secure environment where nothing unexpected is likely to occur is your ideal scenario for seduction. Taurus, however, is straight-forward and down-to-earth in sexual matters. A no-nonsense approach is favoured and too much verbalising, or complex fantasising is not really Taurus's thing. Music or other forms of sensual, non-verbal expression will strike a chord in the Taurean nature.
Admirers should be aware that having opened the floodgates of passion, Taurus can be both insatiable and possessive and Taurean emotions will be trifled with at your peril. The great side of this is that Taurus is intensely loyal and makes a caring, life-long partner, who will seek to provide for and satisfy your needs (so long as they are sure that the food supply is in no danger of running out...)
Taurus, the feminine (yin) sheath of Venus, is attractive and magnetic. Taureans have personal magnetism and are able to draw others into their circle, rather than actively seeking them out. In other words, while they are very fond of members of the opposite sex, they prefer to be courted. Taurus is straight-forward and down-to-earth in sexual matters.
A no-nonsense approach is favoured and too much verbalising, or complex fantasising is not really Taurus's thing. Music or other forms of sensual, non-verbal expression will strike a chord in the Taurean nature.
Faithful friends (and dedicated enemies), Taureans prefer long-lasting relationships and seek to build strong alliances, although they can be misled by their sensual natures, especially when young. Taurus however will grow more stable and discriminating as time goes on, for the Taurean character is naturally inclined to permanence and the satisfaction of a job well done.
Like the Bull, Taurus is slow to anger, then briefly furious before returning to a state of preferred placidity. A lot happens below the surface with Taurus.
Friends can be quite surprised by sudden changes of heart which have actually been bubbling down there for longer than anyone could have suspected!
