Ruling Planet Venus
Colors Pink, Green, and Earth Tones
Rules the Throat (and Throat Chakra) and neck (shoulders?)
You find many Tauruses in the dance world as you also find them published in literary journals or you hear their voices gracing favorite compact disks. Taurus is a Fixed Earth Sign and similar to the other two Earth Signs (Virgo and Capricorn), Taurus people have strong bodies. If they don't work in the arts, you can find these folks making practical pottery, running businesses, or working in gardening, landscaping or on farms. They enjoy growing things. They enjoy spending time among animals and they spread beauty in the world.
Taurus Sun, Moon, and Ascendant prefer heavier foods. Sure, you can entice a Taurus person into eating a green salad once in a while but they won't leave the table until you follow that green salad with something more sustainable that includes root vegetables. Potatoes, anyone? I've met very few Taurus people with food allergies or intolerances. They relish food too much, after all, many Taurus people grow and raise their own food or have memories of families or ancestors who did.
Taurus people approach life through their senses. They have highly developed senses which they engage with long before they speak their first words. And some of these Taurus people will surprise you too. They might have begun talking later than their siblings or peers and then they develop a gift for poetry and prose, much like Shakespeare, a Taurus.
Taurus people tend to have stronger bodies and a few of them are quite thin such as Audrey Hepburn, who resembled a deer. I have also met Taurus women with incredible hair--thick and luxurious. Often, they have wavy hair and smooth skin. Remember they have Venus as their ruling planet. Venus brings beauty into the world.

The best careers for Taurus are careers that allow Taurus to move at his or her own pace. They are usually good at accumulating and managing money. If they're not the wealthiest person on the block, they're also not the poorest one. They use their resources wisely but they will indulge for beautiful things and delicious food. You'll find few vegans in this group as they lean towards an omnivore diet. And if they don't come from the world of dance or yoga, it might be a real challenge to get them to exercise. Walking is better for them than jogging. Yoga is an excellent practice for them to keep their joints flexible and to help them go with the flow.
If you have Taurus friends you can rely on them. They are loyal and they are usually on time when you meet with them. On the downside, Taurus has a reputation for stubbornness and fixed opinions. This is also true for Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius. Scorpio is their dark opposite sign or their polar opposite. Every Taurus has some Scorpio in their personality. They will project their Scorpio traits on others.
If the Taurus person had a rough childhood they benefit from therapy. Only it's near impossible to get a Taurus person into a therapist's office. Again, their stubbornness surfaces. They don't want to probe their deep subconscious mind unless they are rewarded with a thoughtful art project that brings them recognition. Even then, they will clean up the project so that it's pleasant for others to take in, as with Stevie Wonder and his upbeat songs.
If you are a Taurus person, happy birthday. This year, you experience the North Node moving into Leo (May) and Jupiter transiting into your opposite sign, Scorpio in October. Pluto remains in a fellow Earth Sign, Capricorn and gives you strength as you undergo more transformation. Neptune and Chiron in Pisces ask you to pay attention to your dreams and go with the flow. This year you can manifest anything if you can dream it first. However, do this for the highest good.
