The sign Taurus is ruled by Venus.
Physically it is related to the throat. It is said to have a feminine
nature, and is therefore more passive and receptive in its energy expression.
Taurus is an Earth sign and as such is connected with fruitfulness and
stability. A planet placed in this sign will be a stabilising influence
and manifest its energy in a steadfast and determined manner.
Taurus is also a Fixed sign, and this means that once a course is
embarked on, it is rarely deviated from. Maintenance and care of existing
conditions over long periods of time, and a reluctance to initiate change,
are qualities of this sign
Taurus is also connected with the resources of Nature,
and the whole issue of value and worth. Therefore it is associated with
finance, worldly goods and security. People with a strong emphasis in
this sign tend to be materialistic, and often get stuck in a rut.
By periodically cutting their strong attachments they can gain greater
perspective. There is a talent for relaxation and enjoyment of sensory pleasures.
Basically you seek stability and security. However some of the greatest
testing times of your life come when your values change and periods of
instability arise. These periods will often be accompanied by the need
to lose or give up something to which you are extremely attached.
Your fate is to understand the very nature of attachment and yet develop
greater flexibility in the face of gain or loss.
Partnerships can be affected by your inertia as regards the need for
renewal and change. When your self-worth is reflected by inner values
which can never be lost, you become a tower of strength for yourself and others.
Other things being equal you can build a wall of security around your loved ones.
However you may have rather fixed ideas and principles, and you rarely allow yourself to be influenced.
When those around you desire change, this can create a good deal of frustration.
