According to the sidereal zodiac, this weekend the Sun enters into the sign of Taurus, the second sign of the zodiac. Taurus represents manifestation of the creative potential, procreation, nurturing, and material comforts. The symbol of Taurus is the bull. Under its influence, one may be physically powerful, hard-working, wanting to be connected to one’s environment, creative, materialistic, motherly, and/or bull-headed.
Taurus is a fixed earth sign ruled by Venus. Ascendant in Taurus indicates one likes to present oneself to the world artistically or beautifully, such as in how one dresses or decorates one’s home. Taureans love the fine things in life: food, jewelry, art, music, etc. Sun in Taurus indicates a soul with a strong desire to create and nurture, either through artistic endeavors or through children. The influence of Venus (mother, love) and the earthiness (Gaia, Mother Earth) are potent for the Taurean soul. Moon in Taurus indicates one has a strong “mother’s instinct”, and is sensitive and openly emotional. One may especially be moved by beautiful art and music, and easily cry tears of both sadness and joy.
