Getting to Know Taurus
Taurus is symbolized by the bull. A Taurus has the ability to be determined, push through obstacles, and stay focused on what they set out to achieve. Just as a bull will block out everything except the red flag and charge, a Taurus can be stubborn when it comes to sticking to what they think.
During Taurus season, we all may want more independence and to be able to operate on our own terms and follow our desires. We also can use this headstrong energy to focus on what we want and push forward in the area of romance.
Taurus & Venus
Did we mention Taurus energy is also characterized as ‘a die-hard romantic’? It is ruled by the planet Venus and craves a committed partnership where they can be devoted and immersed in all things love. That means we are likely to see new commitments happen during Taurus season and be more focused on our love life.
Taurus is one of three Earth signs. It has a groundedness that makes them more focused on the here and now. It helps us stop spending time planning for the future or working obsessively to prepare for it. It helps us stop and smell the roses so we can enjoy the pleasures of the senses.
As well, being a Fixed sign means most Taureans are capable of being incredibly stubborn and persistent.
