Taurus, the real thing Astrology by Tara Greene

Happy Taurus Time April 20 @ 5:41 am EDT- May 20 

Taurus was once the first sign of the zodiac in Ancient Babylonian times, when the Vernal/Spring equinox began. Taurus is  ruled by the planet Venus who was known as ISHTAR.. Because of the precession of the Equinoxes Aries is now the 1st sign of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere.

During the month when the Sun soaks up Taurus energy we all slow down, we are primarily in our bodies, more grounded, and indulging our senses which can feel much more acute.  Taurus is stable fixed earth, it is our body and resources. Taurus is stubborn, and can be lazy, they like to be couch potatoes.  Known as nature lovers, Taurus do love to stop and smell the roses and it is good for them to garden and be surrounded by nature. Taurus’ likes practical things, they are often artisans and  work well with their hands. Taurus works hard because they like the rewards. They can spend money lavishly too. 

The 2nd sign also governs the 2nd house in the natural system which governs income and money. Real estate, art and traditional blue chip things are what Taurus values. Venus blesses Taurus with fine taste,  a love of art, great food, beautiful fabrics, and the like. Taurus rules the throat chakra and they are often good singers, speakers and musicians. 

You can usually spot a Taurus by their build, usually very strong and healthy, well muscled. They like harmony in their relationships.  Taurus people can be vain. They are loyal and reliable but stubborn. They are straightforward uncomplicated, hate change and act from their need for comfort first.  They can have huge tempers though which can flare up unexpectedly. Do not egg on a Taurus, they can be like enraged bulls, from which the word bully comes. 

Taurus is the symbol #5 in the Tarot The Pope, Heirophant, High Priest, Rabbi 

Taurus is compatible with other earth and water signs. Also Libra as Venus rules both of these signs.

  1. I think it was kind of Tara to not belabour how tranquil, some would say ‘boring’, some of the Taurus personalities can be. But that’s the way we like it….

    Food and music and love of beauty and comfort kind of sums us up. And the importance of music cannot be overemphasized for natives of this sign. Other amazing singer/musicians born with Taurus Sun are lead singer of the Ramones Joey Ramone, Cher, Peter Framptom, Barbra Streisand, Iggy Pop and Stevie Wonder.
