Taurus, (April 20 to May 21) the second sign of the Zodiac, is the Bull. Focused on security and stability, the Taurus is the most faithful of all the signs. Strong, silent, the most introverted of all the signs, Taurus is likely to be cautious and controlled. Those born under Taurus are very practical and determined, well grounded and in touch with nature. They take things as they come, without worrying or stressing. They have strong values, and tend to think long and hard about their decisions. Once they’ve made those decisions, it’s easier to move mountains than to change the mind of a Taurus. Ruled by Venus, Taurus expresses the practical simple beauty side of this planet.
You do not have to have this as your Sun sign to carry the qualities of this energy. If you have an Ascendant in this sign, or heavy placements in your birth chart, this can show up in your life as well. If you have your North Node in this sign, try and bring the positive energy of this sign into your life. Having the South node here means that you need to lean away from the more negative qualities of this energy. Some of those qualities may show up in your personality.
The Energy of Taurus
Nothing personifies Taurus more than the Greek myth of the Minotaur, or bull-headed man, when it comes to stubbornness. Once those hooves are dug in, Taurus is just not going to move. But the Taurus will probably deny that they’re being stubborn; they prefer to call it “sensible.” Or “patient.”
Normally calm and reliable, Taurus is content to be left alone, with a very long fuse….but if that fuse ever burns, watch out. Taurus has a temper. Push him to his limits, and the phrase “bull in a china shop” takes on a whole new meaning. Taurus very seldom gets mad, but when they do, they don’t just get a little annoyed, they get furious. It may take weeks for the dust to clear after a Taurus tantrum.
Taurians are steadfast, loyal, and grounded. They are stable and balanced. They’re smart without being overly intellectual. They’re not likely to strike out for the unknown, but will prefer familiar territory. They’re patient, reliable and loving.
In the workplace, Taureans are good craftspeople, good with their hands. You can trust a Taurus; they make good managers and foremen. They’re good in the fields of banking, architecture, farming, medicine or chemistry. These are fields in which you can be creative, but within a framework of stable practices and science. Taureans are good workers and not giving to goofing off. Because they’re not big risk-takers, they can be trusted with the company finances and are completely reliable and trustworthy.
Taurus likes to build his fortune, slowly and steadily; he loves money and material possessions, though he isn’t stingy. He can be very generous, especially to friends and family.
In the zodiac Great Year, the Age of Taurus took place approximately 4300-2150 BCE which witnessed the rise of Mesopotamian and Egyptian civilizations. This was the era of the Bronze age in Greece, rise of Minoan and Mycenaean cultures. This was a period characterized by the growth of agriculture, and the building of pyramids and megaliths. Bull cults were prevalent in Assyria, Egypt, Crete.
