I have a Taurus son that will be turning 17 this May. He sure loves to eat and sleep and definitely does thing on his own schedule, and once his mind is made up on something that's it. He has good taste in music and hopes to become a chef one day after he joins the military when he turns 18. He's a true blue Taurus. Out of my 3 kids, he's absolutely the most laid back, drama free kid. We've had our moments of locking horns when he was growing up, as I have my own set of horns as a Cappy, too. But those square offs were usually not intense and sayed pretty grounded. We're pretty close now, and we love roller skating together. They were never even as close to intense as they are already with my 4 year old, lord have mercy. LOL
Taurus, your sign is associated with the second month of spring, making your sign a fixed sign, but also everyone can clearly see the signs of this season in full bloom when your birthday comes around. Everything looks beautiful, it’s an earthy season that feels like everything has come alive, which leads to the next point, your sign is ruled by Venus and symbolized by the bull. Taureans, like the bull have two speeds of energy; chill, living a slow, comfortable pace, or ready to charge. One of Newton’s laws is an object in motion stays in motion, an object at rest stays at rest. Taurus is immovable or in motion. Think of a bull. When a bull is charging, you won’t get it to stop until it’s ready to stop. Same goes for when a bull is comfortable napping in the meadow, under the shade of a tree, with a full belly, you won’t get it to move.
Taurus natives are usually sensual people. They enjoy experiencing life through the material world and their senses. Food, touch, smells, and anything that engages your senses makes you feel alive. This is an earth sign, you’re earth in bloom personified. Taurus natives are hard workers. They’re solid people that like having routines and security. Taurus is associated with the second house of astrology, which governs over personal security, personal values, personal assets and belongings. You like your things. You like your food. You like your naps. When a Taurus shares food or shares their resources and possessions this is a huge indicator of love from the Taurus.
You work on your life in a methodical way and you take your time. You follow no one’s timeline but your own, and you don’t want anyone hurrying you up or slowing you down for that matter. You do things your way on your time frame. You count on doing things that have been tried and true, too. You aren’t one to jump on the bandwagon for newfangled stuff, it has to prove itself and be reliable and of good quality. Same for your relationships, you count on reliability from others. It will really irk you when something you own or someone you’re close to isn’t reliable.
On the other side of you being able to fend for yourself, and your dependability that you offer to partners and employers, you can have a lazy streak, too. Well, it can come off as lazy to others for sure. Taurus natives enjoy their sleep and perusing life at their leisure. You take time to make a decision, but your decisions will usually be wise in the long run, this is the tortoise vs the hare discussion here, you, Taurus, are the tortoise. You may feel sluggish at times, too weighted and tired to even move, you just want to stay put. It can be this way with getting you to be flexible in your thinking, too. Once you have your mind made up, that’s it, no changing it. You’re determined, stubborn, and you’ll rebel against anything or anyone that pokes and prods at your will trying to change you. It takes smooth persuasion to get you to go along, but anyone that forces you into anything will be met by your bull horns.
Tarueans depend a lot on having emotional support from their family, and if they don’t get the support it can make them come across very “bullish” to their family members. Otherwise, in healthy conditions with people you care about, you can be counted on to be a rock for them, you provide for them, and you want them to learn to provide for themselves, too, but you’re not going to let anyone you care about go without a roof over their head and food in their belly. As a parent, you want your children to have security, even as they’re older adults, you want to make sure that they can count on you, so you invest your resources and work efforts as wisely as you can when others depend on you.
Your life, your mission, is making your world secure. Once you feel safe; so your home, your job, your marriage, once it’s set and you feel secure and valued, you’re a loyal and dependable spouse, parent, and employee. You know what you value and you want to be treated fairly, for you know what you’re worth, you know your value and the value of things and people around you.
Taureans want to avert crisis and drama. They don’t like power struggles. Their direct opposite is Scorpio, and Scorpio tends to always be involved in drama, crisis, and power struggles. Taurus, you’re way over on the other end of the spectrum. Leave me the hell alone and leave me out of it, is the Taurus way. You don’t like things or people that are overly complex. You like simplicity, stability, and practicality. You shrug your shoulders at a lot of things deemed crazy and overcomplicated. You just want to live. You feel respect, devotion, and admiration within yourself regarding the simple pleasures in life; eating and enjoying every morsel of the food you eat, the sounds of a bubbling brook, the feeling of a good neck rub, sleeping on satin sheets, watching your kids play, laying out in the sunshine, having four walls around you in your home. You want a solid foundation and you’re sign IS the foundation energy of the zodiac. You’re salt of the earth and down to earth.
Many people that have an earth sign as their Sun sign adopt more traditional and conservative opinions and ways of life. You may feel it’s important to value tried and true concepts, traditions in society and family, and you may take on more conventional roles and interests. You may dress more conservatively, too, although dressing style usually doesn’t have as much to do with Sun signs as much as it does say the person’s Moon or Rising signs.
Taurus tends to remain calm. It takes a lot to stir the bull, but once the pot is stirred, watch out. You really don’t want to charge anyone with those bull horns, but you will if you really must or feel very triggered. Taurus natives are usually introverted and don’t feel the need to be around lots of people, they like their distance, and thrive in serene environments. Most of the time this introverted nature is more due to not wanting to confront or deal with problems with other people, too, or not wanting to risk and deal with the potential that problems could come up.
Taurus can sometimes come across as selfish. They’re usually quite modest. What happens though is they’re driven to have the best and want to give the best to their family, similar to a Capricorn. A Taurus might want something as well, but not go right out and splurge, they’ll wait until they have the means to make a purchase or take a trip or get the dance lessons for little Jane. Taureans are prudent and patient.
Many Taurus natives have an eye for art, they may enjoy drawing, architecture, or taking photos for example, Venus rules over art, money, beauty, and love.
New Moon in Aries
Tonight there’s a New Moon in Aries. Aries is the sign that teaches you to believe in yourself. We also have the Sun (ego, work, personal foundation, what you want), Moon (feelings, inner world, what you’re drawn to, what you need to feel safe), Venus (love, money, art, beauty) and Mercury (communication, ideas, exchanging information, short trips) , as well as Chiron (asteroid, wounded healer) in Aries. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and is ruled by Mars and symbolized by the headstrong Ram.
New moons are all about setting intentions. Make your goals fierce. We’re talking about Aries energy here; God of War, passion, desire, birth, taking initiative, physical energy, courage, competitiveness, fertility, and raw, primal energy. What you set as goals/intentions today will activate between now and the Aries full moon on October 20, 2021. This is a time of fresh starts.
What does your inner warrior want to take on and tackle? How do you want to take part in shaping your life? What makes you feel fire in your belly? What are the things that test your limits and make you fume? This will show you what you’re passionate about. What are your beliefs and how do you stand up for them? How can you express your opinion, even if it’s unpopular? How do you enact your personal no trespassing sign that tells others, here are my boundaries, honor them or take a step back?
Where have you been knocked down? Do you have a strategy for your comeback? This is the time to put you first. Aries energy is all about the self. It’s a “me first” vibe. This isn’t the time to play small or be afraid. How do you fill your cup, so that you don’t burn out? When you lead your life with boundaries and putting yourself first with the intention that it’ll also benefit others, that’s when you succeed. Aries says let me fill my cup so I can then give to you. You cannot pour from an empty cup.
Aries is excited, enthusiastic, and hot blooded. There’s a zest for life with Aries energy. Emotions is energy in motion. What are you feeling right now? Find what makes that spark in you come alive and let it light your path to a fulfilling life. Always do what excites you. Aries can be impatient. Excitement will keep you motivated, inspired, and on the fastest path. Excitement is also a form of higher consciousness. Follow your joy, follow your excitement and lead a life you’ll love. If you ask yourself, “do I really want to do this” and the answer is no, honor that and move on. When you feel your blood pumping and you feel your heart beating, you feel that fire in your belly, go with that!
This is a time to tap into desires and let your talents spring forward. Aries is the cardinal sign that leads us into Spring and a new astrological year. This is that same energy you need to find in yourself of the seed mustering up its energy to grow and burst through the soil.
