From Apr 2002*
The Sun enters Taurus around the midnight hour Friday night / Saturday morning. When the Sun is in Taurus, people will use their personal energy more persistently, practically, purposefully, and with more determination than at other times. They value behaviors and methods that are steady, powerful, dependable and "conserving of energy and resources."
They also emphasize acquisition of income and possessions, using and storing the resources necessary for survival, nurturing new life and new growth, and enjoying physical sensations and pleasures. They will also be concerned with aesthetics and harmony in their environment and with asserting their abstract personal values.
