The Sun moved into Taurus on Monday. A shift from “outta my way!” to “show me the money!” took place.
Taurus is Fixed Earth, represented by the Bull.
Earth signs are the builders. Building things that last. Things that last = security. Capricorn climbs the mountain. Virgo separates the wheat from the chaff. And for his part, Taurus is the stubborn craftsman. Creating things of quality, that stand the test of human use are the talent of the Bull.
This second sign is Venus ruled, therefore form absolutely must meet function. All is right with the world, when it is has a sensual purpose.
Family, home, nature—good food and drink surrounded by that which we love. These are the Bull’s bread and butter. These are the things that last.
And to come full circle with the money theme—with Taurus it really does all come back to investment. Seeds are planted because they turn into food. Money is made because it ensures consistent comfort down the road. Relationships are nourished because there is nothing that screams security like friends and lovers that have your back. Nothing is undertaken that doesn’t portend a practical return of some sort.
Security, stability, longevity, beauty.
Everything else is irrelevant.
