Taurus: the 2nd Sign of the Zodiac

by Rebecca Brents




Taurus -- time to stabilize ... and plant

Taurus is the second sign of the Zodiac. It follows Aries in the Zodiacal line-up. As a rule, the range of Taurus covers the time from April 20th until May 20th. It is a time of year that emphasizes growth and establishing physical support sources.

It is associated with earning and spending income, acquiring possessions, and using material resources wisely. In mundane matters, Taurus is associated with having enough money to support yourself, arranging a comfortable and beautiful physical environment, planning your next moves to achieve your ambitions.



Taurus -- the mid-spring Earth Sign

The Zodiacal symbol for Taurus is the Bull. Taurus is the Fixed Earth sign. Earth signs are pragmatic, grounded, conservative, and materialistic. Fixed signs are associated with determination, reliability, and willpower. They deal with life's problems by digging in, holding firm, and "staying the course." Thus Taurus brings a firm resolve (which a lot of folks call "stubbornness") to the lifestyle it creates.

The other Fixed signs are Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius. The natural style these signs take in their approach to life can bring challenges to their relationships with Taurus. The other Earth signs are Virgo and Capricorn. Common values and similar preferences in habits and ambitions help these signs find an easier, more natural compatibility with Taurus.



Taurus -- friends of Water and Earth

Traditionally, Taurus is compatible with Virgo and Capricorn, other Taureans, Pisces and Cancer. Cancer and Pisces bring supportive and complementary qualities that can enhance their relationship with Taurus.

On the other hand, a match between Taurus and Leo or Taurus and Aquarius carries special challenges ... and a relationship between Taurus and Scorpio will require well-defined "territories" for each partner ... and a constant willingness to compromise on many issues, for these two signs often hold to different values. As you can see, Taurus / Scorpio relationships can be kind of a mixed blessing.

Physically, Taurus rules the throat. The ruling planet of Taurus is Venus. Taurus is associated with earth colors (browns and tans), natural colors (greens), and pastels. The starstone (not the birthstone) assigned to Taurus is the emerald.

Relevant to Taurus

* The Personal Signs: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer -- They Operate Through Direct Action and Experience ---> Up front and uncomplicated ---> The first four signs of the Zodiac are the Personal Signs -- Aries, Taurus, Gemini and Cancer. They engage life and understand the world through their own direct actions and experiences. Their ambitions don't depend much on other people's cooperation or group support.


Taurus & Gender

* Feminine Signs -- The Earth and Water Signs ---> Signs of Practicality and Emotion ---> Where masculine signs are dynamic, self-motivating and proactive, feminine signs take a more subtle, passive approach when dealing with challenge or working for change. Masculine sign people are life's movers-and-shakers, while feminine signs prefer to be patient, bide their time and "wait and see what happens" before spending energy and resources to make life bend to their will.

* Masculine Signs / Feminine Signs -- It has nothing to do with sex ---> Two orientations on the world ---> In Astrology and metaphysics, Masculine and Feminine refers not to physical gender or personal manner, but to one's basic orientation on the world and one's preferred strategies for dealing with problems. Essentially, "masculine" signs prefer to seize the moment, make things happen and change what doesn't suit them with their actions and choices.

Elements and Gender in Astrology -- Different Ways of Engaging the World ---> The Triplicities ---> To an astrologer, Fire, Earth, Air, and Water are called the Elements or Triplicities - as each contains three signs of the Zodiac. Traditionally, members of the same triplicity tend to get along well with one another. (There are also the Qualities ... or the Quadruplicities: Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable ... whose members tend to have "problems" with one another.)
