Their famously stubborn nature is a gift, not a curse. Being a Fixed sign, falling right in the middle of the spring season, Taurus people are committed and reliable, as immovable as the animals symbolizing their sign. Taurus' symbol is the bull's horns, a straightforward glyph for a no-bullshit sign.
April 20 - May 20
Taurus people are so insightful and peaceful when in their natural element: on the couch with a remote and some snacks.
Taurus's tarot card, the Hierophant, sits (a Taurus always prefers to sit) on a throne, dispensing wisdom. The fifth of the trump cards in the Tarot, the Hierophant is a guide to the five senses. Fitting that Taurus is the toddler of the zodiac, newly capable of enjoying all the sensations the world has to offer. Taurus is relaxed and receptive, basking in early spring now that the fiery energy of the previous sign, Aries, has conquered the winter. Tauruses enjoy the feeling of silk on their skin, the sound of lovely music, the taste of delicious food, the sight of beautiful art, and the smell of perfume...you get it: Taurus is all about the good stuff in life!
Their famously stubborn nature is a gift, not a curse. Being a Fixed sign, falling right in the middle of the spring season, Taurus people are committed and reliable, as immovable as the animals symbolizing their sign. But be aware: The vain and Venus-ruled Taurus does not like to be called a bull or a cow.
Venus is the planet of beauty and prosperity, and she rules two signs, Taurus and Libra. Libra is an Air sign, allowing Venus to express herself intellectually. In Earth sign Taurus, Venus manifests in physical, material form--hence Taurus's association with cash, jewels, and a hot body.
Taurus' symbol is the bull's horns, a straightforward glyph for a no-bullshit sign. Its colors are earthy and green, appropriate for the tranquil and luxurious grazing cow luxuriating in the warmth of spring.
Earth day appropriately coincides with this sign's month, as does 4/20-a cusp Aries/Taurus holiday, because a fat joint is very much called for during the transition from Aries' bloody war for rebirth to the verdant peace Taurus enjoys on a fresh, luxurious Spring day.
If you know a Taurus person, you'd likely describe them as chill. They're super zen, and usually remind their friends not to sweat the small stuff. Taurus people know how to stay in the moment and enjoy what the world has to offer.
