Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac, and it is all about reward. Unlike the Aries individual who loves the game, Taurus loves the rewards of the game. And that is a very interesting concept. The Taurus person loves hard work, and doing that work to achieve their goals. They love the idea of achieving all that comes with the hard work they put in. Whatever the project may be, family, career, school anyone of these. The satisfaction that they feel from all of their hard work transfers into the physical pleasures and the material goods that they receive from this. The new house, the nicest car, the best schools for their children, gourmet food, fine wines and the list goes on. Only the best for the Taurus individual and their families, they are very into the idea and concept of the family unit and will do anything to make and keep them secure and keep them that way. There is no doubt that they love he good life and all that comes with it. Taurus is a fixed earth sign, so their feet are very firmly planted in the ground. So they can often be very determined, bull-headed and stubborn. In some instances this can be a good trait, but that is not always the case. Sometimes these traits can also work against them, but as it is with all of the signs of the zodiac, it is a personal choice if you decide to go with the higher or lower energy of your sign at birth. If you choose the lower energy, daily life will be difficult and if you choose the higher energy, you are on your way to a more positive and peaceful life.
The Sun is in Taurus from April 21st to May 22nd. Taurus represents “the freshly plowed earth of springtime, ready for the seed”. And the keyword for this sign is “I have”. Taurus rules the throat in the physical body and also the cerebellum. Venus is the ruling planet for the sign of Taurus, so the individual will naturally have many of the traits associated with this planet. Venus has always been considered to be “the Goddess of Love”. When you are dealing with the planet Venus, you are only dealing with love and romance, but you are also dealing with those things and traits that make up beauty. That could mean that the Venus individual loves and appreciates beauty in every sense of the word. The Venus person will love the arts, entertainment and fashion. For example they could get totally hypnotized by a beautiful sunset. Often the Venus person can be very artistic themselves. They may work with arts and crafts, or be a fashion consultant. You will find that the Venus individual likes to work in a career that beautifies their surroundings and everyone else. These are very positive traits to have and they take them to the limit.
