Sun Sign Astrology: Taurus

Taurus is the second sign of the Zodiac, with the Sun visiting April 20th, and leaving May 20th. Taurus is an Earth sign,  alongside Virgo and Capricorn. As a result of its Earth influence, Taurian’s are very grounded, stable, and down to Earth,  but sometimes look only on the surface and fail to delve into the depths. Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus, the Roman Goddess of beauty, pleasure, creativity and emotion, and inclines Taurian’s to be too materialistic at times, but with exceptional creative abilities.

This sign is practical and determined, however stubborn and resistant to change. Their perseverance means that other people are often dependent on them to pull them through difficult times, and because of their generous nature they are more than willing to lend a helping hand.  This perseverance also means that they are usually successful in their chosen career, but they have a hard time letting go of projects that may not be conducive to them, out of their need to follow something through to its completion. Stubbornness comes hand in hand with their determination, and they refuse be defeated even if it is not in their best interest to succeed. Taurian’s are often resistant to change, they like everything in their life to be constant – their career, relationships, home –  and feel anxious when this becomes threatened. Because of this, Taurian’s will close themselves off from new experiences out of fear of change.

On the other hand, Taurian’s are incredibly sensitive and serene, thanks to the influence of Venus. They are affectionate and loving, and are inspired by music, nature and the arts which carries through into their love life. They often collect beautiful pieces of art work and love anything with an element of design and creativity. As a result, Taurian’s usually have an expensive taste and a love of the finer things in life, making them sometimes overly materialistic. Because of their keen eye, others may look to them for advice on interior or fashion – you are a taste maker. This carries over into your relationships, and you often look for the most beautiful and unique looking partners to have on your arm, but only if the relationship is committed and caring.

Famous Taurian’s include: Audrey Hepburn, Fred Astaire, George Clooney, Harper Lee, Leonardo Da Vinci, William Shakespeare, and Tchaikovsky – I think you will agree that all of these people fit the description of a Taurus perfectly due to their creativity and passion for creating beautiful things.
