Taurus isn’t necessarily like a bull in a ring with a toreador. They could be more like peace-loving Ferdinand, seeking the gentle meadows filled with flowers, sunshine and natural beauty. It’s only Taurus’ stubbornness that can make them angry enough to charge at someone who is disturbing their peace.
Taurus’ are noted for their determination. They get to where they are going not because they are exceptionally fast or clever, but because Taurus will not be distracted from their goals. Their need for stability and simplicity can motivate Taurus to create a life for themself that is quite functional, though it might seem boring to someone else. But Taurus’ aren’t interested in taking unnecessary risks that can put their solid footing in jeopardy.
Taurus motto should be, “Take care of the senses and everything else will take care of itself.” It may be that their attraction to material things is less about the objects themselves than it is about the pleasure they bring to their senses. Comfortable living and working space is important to Taurus, along with nice linens, clothing, food and music. As one of the most practical signs, Taurus’ outlook on life is usually quite sensible. As Taurus plods along in life, getting what they need in order to survive, they shouldn’t forget to look at the beauty that is beyond the material world of material possessions.
Earth signs are naturally practical. In this lifetime we are bound to the Earth. There is no escaping the reality around us. The Earth is about as real as it gets; it can be felt, weighed and it has substance. Accordingly, the Earth signs base their lives on what is real, not what is imagined. Sensation is valued over thoughts or feelings. Earth signs live with their feet on the ground. Others seek their advice because of their basic sensibility. For Earth signs, seeing is believing. The Earth of Taurus is simple and sensible. It’s about getting back to basics. This is about working the Earth in a garden or about having the tools we need in order to build.
SECOND HOUSE: POSSESSIONS
The Second House symbolizes those things that are of value to us. Personal possessions are within this domain, as is our money. Anything having personal value is associated with the Second House. It also represents those things we value that are not things. When you think about what is most important to you-your own values-your are indeed thinking about your Second House.
RULING PLANET: VENUS
Venus is the planet of love and desire. She is in charge of romance and beauty. But Venus isn’t only about physical love; she’s also symbolic of the ideal love. When we see a beautiful painting or other work of art, Venus is present. She is the beauty of a rose as much as she is the attraction we have to someone we love. As the ruling planet of Taurus, Venus is sensual and simple. We fulfill the senses with beauty and life is good.
