Smart, ambitious, and trustworthy, Taurus is the anchor of the Zodiac. They are amazing friends, colleagues, and partners. Taurus value honesty above all else and are proud that their personal relationships tend to be drama free.
Bulls has a reputation of stubborn. However, they’re never in their ways. This searching sign is willing to see another point of view. However, they won’t flip-flop on an opinion just to make someone else happy. They will shift their thinking only if they truly have a change of heart.
It’s the Bull that serves as the Taurus’s mascot, and along with that comes the expectation that these folks are bull-headed and stubborn. Bulls are actually among the most practical and reliable members of the zodiac, and they are happy to plod along, as it were, in pursuit of their goals.
The good news for Bulls is that once they get to the finish line, they’ll swaddle themselves in material goods.

They feel the need to be with their people and feel love and beauty. People born with their Sun in Taurus are sensual and tactile, considering touch and taste the most important of all senses. Stable and conservative, this is one of the most reliable signs of the zodiac, ready to endure and stick to their choices until they reach the point of personal satisfaction.
Ruled by the persistent and plodding Bull, Taurus energy has two speeds. It’s either calm or aging and ready to charge. This zodiac sign has a built-in energy conservation program.
It will patiently access whether something is worth the investment of time and resources. This sign encourages us to break our work into simple steps then take daily action. Taurus is the sign of the builder, helping us create concrete results for our diligent efforts.
Under the influence of a Taurus planetary transit, we roll up our sleeves and finish the job. The positive essence of Taurus energy shows up as patient, organized, supportive, romantic, careful, and dedicated.
On the flip side, Taurus energy can also be overindulgent, stubborn, lazy, vain, tightfisted and too cautious. Routine-loving Taurus can often be stuck in our comfort zones and habits.
Taureans are reliable people who often feel deep attachments. Others can count on them to be kind and generous because they’re the type who likes to give a hand always, who wants to inspire others to become better and even to solve their loved ones’ problems.
Because they’re good with the material aspects, they could do great working in banks and financial institutions. Powerful and ambitious, they can resist harsh situations for years, especially if this means making someone in their life happy.
You can rely on them to accomplish the tasks even if they sometimes like to procrastinate. However, being stubborn draws success to them.
Sensual and nice, they’re at the same time assertive and stable. Because Venus rules them, they will always be generous and caring.
The sign of the Taurus often hold association with the material world, which is not the best thing when it comes to feelings. Because they’re an Earth sign, Taurians can be lazy, passive, too stubborn and focused only on possessions.
They’re usually terrified of losing people and their own wealth, so it’s possible for them to become too controlling. However, they can go from one extreme to another. Also, when accepting they need to change somethings about themselves, they end up being these irresistible and sweet persons.
Just like the animal that represents them, Taurians can sometimes be too obstinate. Many consider them lazy because they have a difficult start. However, they’re only the type that gathers energies and focuses only on what needs to be done.
While it’s rare to see them angry, you can be sure they know all about this feeling. Calm on the outside, inside they’re in fact volcanoes that no one wants to see erupting. Therefore, it’s better not to mess with them.
When in a relationship, Tauras fall irrecoverably for the person they love, so their tendency to become possessive becomes very real with them sometimes.
Those who are more detached from the material world may see them as greedy and over indulgent.
Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, luxury, and beauty. Legend has it that when Saturn castrated his father, Uranus, Uranus’blood spilled into the sea, impregnating the sea foam and giving birth to the goddess Venus. (Who knew this charming goddess came from such violent origins?)
In Renaissance artist Sandro Botticelli’s famous painting The Birth of Venus, the goddess is fully naked, perched exquisitely on a clamshell.
That is sensual Taurus in a nutshell. This sign’s Venusian energy adds charm and embellishment to everything it touches, from food to fashion to home decor. Venus was the Goddess of Love, Beauty, and Pleasure, and Taurus has pretty much taken up where she left off.
Bulls are fond of all things pretty, whether it’s in their home, at a museum or on the stage. Life as one sweet pas de deux is how the Taurus-born like it.
To onlookers, this may look like so much materialism and blessed excess, but Bulls really aren’t interested in living without beauty in their lives. Beauty to the Bull also comes in the way of happy home life, one that includes a partner and a stable relationship.
When Taurus season rolls around, every sign can think of it as an opportunity to do more of what they love. Be open to your senses. Spend a whole day in a department store playing dress up, or get lost for hours in an art museum.
During Taurus season, the power of Venus puts us more in touch with the beauty of the world around us, as well as within ourselves. Think of this as a gift and indulge. Venus would.
Since Taurus is the first earth sign in the zodiac cycle, it’s like the bedrock that sets the foundation. Many Taurus people are stabilizers, ensuring that there’s security for themselves and others.
Under the influence of a Taurus planetary cycle, we all become more grounded and easy going, taking the proper steps necessary to ascertain our goals through diligent effort and output.
Earth signs are the builders of the zodiac. To these signs, creation is a tangible proposition. Whether it’s building jobs or home or creating comfortable rooms within that home through the acquisition of possessions, Earth signers are all about what is solid around us.
Those influenced by this element feel best once they have accumulated a goodly number of worldly possessions. The risk inherent in this, however, is that these individuals may become greedy and far too materialistic.
The element of Earth also confers a sense of duty, responsibility, and reliability to those in its sphere. These are the people you can count on to be there when you need them. Those influenced by Earth also tend toward caution and conservatism, in both desire and approach. That said, they are sensualists, certainly, in that they appreciate a good meal and fine wine better than anyone else.
The logical mind of an Earth Signer is always appreciated. In keeping with this measured approach, these folks also display considerable recuperative powers.
On the flip side of things, however, those supported by Earth may be so caught up in their objectives that they might overlook the feelings of others. It is a big picture, after all, but these folks may be more concerned with the finish line than the journey they are taking.
The Hierophant is the masculine counterpart to the high priestess. He is also known as the Pope or the Teacher in other Tarot decks and is ruled by Taurus.
The Hierophant is a religious figure sitting between two pillars of a sacred temple – though this temple differs from the one in which the High Priestess sits.
He wears three robes – red, blue and white – and a three-tiered crown, both representing the three worlds over which he rules (the conscious, subconscious and super-conscious).
In his left hand, he holds the Papal Cross, a triple scepter that signifies his religious status. He raises his right hand in a religious blessing, with two fingers pointing towards Heaven and two towards Earth.
The Hierophant’s task is to pass down his spiritual wisdom and initiate the two into the church so they can take up their appointed roles.
This imagery speaks to a shared group identity and a rite of passage to enter the next level. The crossed keys at the Hierophant’s feet represent the balance between the conscious and subconscious minds and the unlocking of mysteries, which only he can teach.
It symbolizes a need to conform and social approval on the one hand, and mercy, forgiveness, compassion, conformity, and inspiration on the other. This card means that you know how to solve your problem even though it isn’t very easy.
When the Hierophant card is reversed in a Tarot reading, it symbolizes unconventionality and unorthodoxy in addition to vulnerability and frailty. Although some might not understand your desire to mix things up, it might be necessary. It can also mean total freedom if you’re willing to buck the norms and embrace an alternative way of being.
