From the 20th April 2018 we will be entering the Sun Sign of Taurus until 21st May 2018
Taurus is Represented By : The Bull
Ruling Planet: Venus
Venus is the planet of love and passion. As well as love it also rules art and beauty. As well as Taurus, Venus also rules Libra.
Opposite Sign: Scorpio
The Full Moon of the Month is always in the opposite Sign to the corresponding Sun Sign. So therefore, the Full Moon on 30th April will be in Scorpio
April:Sweet Peas and Daisies symbolising Love, youth, purity.
May: Lily of the Valley symbolising love, passion, beauty and perfection
Colours: Dark Green and Chocolate Brown
Compatible with: Virgo and Capricorn the other two Earth Signs as both of these signs are cautious and share’s the ambitious and materialistic side that Taureans have. Taurean’s match well with Pisces and Cancer, which are two Water Signs as they add some sensitivity and emotion to a relationship. Water signs would likely be attracted to a Taureans emotional strength and independence.
Characteristics & Traits of Taurus
Generosity - Taureans will always make time for their nearest and dearest. They are always willing to help those in need and would be first to help the homeless or give to charity
Dependable - As Taureans are a strong sign they can be leaned on and you can count on them not to let you down. They make wonderful partners, friends and colleagues as they show true integrity.
Earthed - Taureans hold no place for ego; they will never let their successes go to their heads.
Perfection - They believe in perfection and would rather take their time to get things right first time.
Independence - Taureans hate to rely on other, albeit it emotionally or financially.
Persistence - Taurean always go after what they want in life and they put their all in to get what they want.
Stubbornness - A typical Taurean is very very stubborn. If they choose to they will be the most inflexible ever and will not back down. They won’t enter into an argument they will just simple refuse to listen or ignore.
Selfishness - Sometimes Taureans loose themselves. If they are working towards a deadline say, they will have a one track mind and all focus will be on that deadline regardless of anyone else’s wants or needs. Some may say selfish, some would say driven or focused.
Materialistic - Taureans like security. Therefore, to surround themselves with material things and have money in the bank is considered to be security to a Taurean.
Possessiveness -Jealousy and possessives would be the trait that costs Taureans their relationships. Whilst we are all capable of their negative emotions a Taureans stubbornness is unlikely to allow compromise in these areas; thus coming off worse whilst trying to save face.
Frugal - Taureans are often known for their tightness with money. Whilst a good sense of money and saving is sensible and that would a positive trait, often Taureans go overboard with this end up tight with their cash.
