Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
Taurus is the second sign of the Zodiac and is the first of the Earth Element followed by Virgo and Capricorn. Taurus is a sign of Fixed Quality and is ruled by Venus. The Zodiac glyph is the Bull, which is symbolic of a slow but sure, practical and hard working nature. Talented and interested in multiple streams of income, people born with the Sun in Taurus are usually happiest when close to home where they can garden, make, fix and tend to things in a concentrated yet relaxed manner. Beyond their usual socially acceptable style, Taurus people also like originality and will, at least, stick a feather in their hat, wear a scarf with polka dots or paisley or dawn a flashy tie. Sensual, comfortable and realistic, Taurus will do what they are asked, but aim to be on their own terms and time. The classic issues the Bull expresses include being stubborn, quietly proud, lazy and over sensual. Getting a Taurus to change their mind or attitude requires clearly convincing practical rationale and patience. Positively, Taurus born persons will bring a fine combination of sensitivity, sensibility and steadfastness to daily tasks and problem solving. Often very attractive, yet devoted and loyal, Taurus is a very good candidate to be a life-long mate. The basic challenges to overcome include over sensuality, rigid attitudes, beliefs and set behaviour patterns. Taurus is about priorities, values, personal possessions, practical reality and the cultivation of talents. Farmers, carpenters, builders, bankers, brokers, bakers, jewellers, singers, artisans and metallurgists are common occupations.
Famous Taurus personalities that depict the sign include:
- George Lucas – film producer
- Michelle Pfeiffer – actress
- Barbara Streisand – singer & actress.

There may well be background and foundational work to do. It may not achieve outer recognition but it has to be done. It will take until next week to achieve full speed.
A charge forward should be evident now. Mercury in Aries will not exactly help, however. It could leave full of energy but uncertain where or how to direct it. To overcome this, try to make snap decisions regarding the small stuff and activate a momentum that pushes you to be proactive.
The Sun in Aries and Venus re-entering Aries says: go within to decipher your priorities this week, Taurus. Mars in your sign indicates pioneering initiatives and when the Sun follows suit next week, you will be like a bull out of the gates. This is especially true if you know what you want and have created a plan.
Imagine a nuclear submarine. It is big and pushes a lot of water but it can also move very quickly. The metaphor serves to describe some of the energy patterns at play for you now. A metamorphosis process is underway all the while. It features identifying what makes you special and morphing to adapt.
