Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac, symbolising growth and development. Representing the age period between 7-14, Taurus is the youngest earth sign and will incarnate to establish roots. During this phase of evolution, a soul will begin to understand control over their environment and become aware of what belongings are theirs. This will also bring about the valuable life lessons that care, maintenance and respect for valuables will increase their life span. Other lessons experienced in this period of evolution are sharing, trading, and working in harmony with others (after the sometimes-painful realisation that one cannot always be the centre of attention). Taureans represent a nurturing face of our ego, caring, managing and maintaining. They can be seen as the evolutionary stage between Aries and Gemini, transmuting flaming, direct and straightforward energies into airy spacious and changeable ones.
Taurus is ruled by Venus, enjoying the fine pleasures in life while concerning themselves with harmony and beautiful surroundings. Part of the programming of their incarnation is to establish security and fine possessions, deeply involving themselves in the material world. They will fine-tailor their homes, work environment, and gardens to be uplifting and atmospheric. A Taurus can transport you to a heightened state through their creative use of space and biogeometry. They are also incredibly sensual beings, attentive to sex, food, comfort, relaxation and self-care.
Because Taurus is a fixed earth sign, it is usually pictured as stubborn and confrontational like its symbol the bull, but in the interest of harmony, the Taurus can be surprisingly flexible. They are contemplative, and carefully map out strategies to achieve their plans, however they can procrastinate and lose momentum. Their negative side, which may come about in emotional turmoil and disappointment includes; laziness, resistance to change and an obstinate outlook. When in balance, a Taurus will be determined to reach their goals and make a caring friend, colleague or sibling. Taureans are wise in their advising, they become strategic and acute observers who are insightful in regards to the activities of others.
Taurean’s are prone to stress and tension being carried in their shoulders. They are also likely to suffer with earaches, headaches and stiff necks. This can come about from emotional burden and blocked expression of their truth.
Taureans will thrive by retaining a large measure of autonomy; yet will make a great addition to the team for as long as they can muster it. They will not often tire of what they set their minds to doing, and will perfect and master their life’s work. Don’t mistake a Taurean’s interest in their self as selfishness, they always have the best interest of those around them as well… they live for love, and the people that are dearest to them.
