Taurus (April 21 - May 20)
Ruling planet: Venus D
Taurus is a fixed-earth sign, suggesting a double dose of stability - something the zodiac apparently needed, soon after its combustible Aries stage, before it could sensibly diversify. Fixed energy isn't going anywhere, at least not until it has pulled together and organized all its resources. In addition, methodical earth likes to takes its time when building supportive structures that ensure durability. Thus, Taurus has little trouble planting its hooves on the ground and firmly connecting with the world of matter-a tangible substance it knows it can count on to not rapidly change in form.
Matter is appealingly solid and predictable to Taurus, a sign that needs to feel safely enclosed by protective and even permanent boundaries.Taurus is keenly aware of what it owns, since the things it possesses become strong emotional attachments-even those that have great resale value.
Venus, the ruler of Taurus, rising in that sign, makes the form beautiful as well as strong, also giving artistic ability and musical inspiration. Taurus people are pre-eminently "thorough and steadfast" in everything they do: In love, in hate, in work or play, they persist in a given direction, and neither reason nor argument will turn them. They are verbose and argumentative in defense of their actions or opinions; they grasp new ideas slowly, with difficulty and conservatively, but once comprehended and espoused, they always remember what they have learned and defend their opinions to the last ditch.
