THE SIGN OF TAURUS, THE BULL Ruling Planet, Venus
Number, 6; Color, Blue; Day, Friday; Jewels and Metal, Sapphire, Turquoise, Emerald, Coral and Copper,
On leaving the Sign of Aries the Sun enters that of Taurus, the next in order in the belt. In Ancient Egypt the bull was worshiped as the symbol of fecundity, and while the Sun was in the Sign of Taurus, a great festival lasting seven days was held in honor of Osiris, the giver of Life, whom the people saw represented by the bull. Probably the sacred cattle of the Hindus to-day are a remnant of the same belief.
The Sign is one of Earth, and frequently the characteristics of the lower nature are found in its influences. But the period was considered the most favorable of all for the starting of any great work. The two temples of the Jews were begun when the Sun was in Taurus, and there is every reason to believe the same period saw the laying of the first stones of the Great Pyramid.
As is the case with all other Signs, the name was not bestowed indiscriminately, and thus the Taurus people who are true to type have many of the characteristics of the bull, as those of Aries have of the ram. People born at the beginning of the Sign are patient and plodding, but very difficult to guide or advise. Slow to forget and forgive, they are apt to brood over their wrongs, while obstinacy is their chief fault. Fortunately the influence of Venus softens and modifies many of the faults of the Sign. She is the incarnation of Love, only, unfortunately, she has more than one aspect. When at her highest she gives the beauty of unselfish devotion, of unswerving loyalty, but when “afflicted” the love she inspires may be the basest passion.
Taurus, being an Earth Sign, her lower influence is often exerted there, yet everything depends on the individual horoscope, and it is impossible to lay down general rules that must be followed. It is certain only that in one form or another Venus will make herself felt to those born under Taurus.
To a great extent the influences of the Sign and the Planet contradict each other. ‘While Taurus gives obstinacy, Venus may bestow irresponsibility. In that case a person will not listen to advice, but insists on going his own way to ruin, through frivolity and self-indulgence. Taurus gives business ability, Venus artistic talents. If the aspects are good these influences merge smoothly, and we find the artist endowed with the common sense which enables him to win wealth as well as fame. If the aspect is evil the power to create beauty remains, but nothing of value comes from the gift.
Frequently Taurus people are fond of money, but Venus may change them into spendthrifts. If she is ill aspect, money will be theirs either through work or inheritance, but they will throw it away as fast as it is accumulated. Often they have no sense of money value, spending right and left without thought of the morrow.
To keep in good health they should lead very active lives, with plenty of business interests and outdoor exercise. If they are allowed to be idle they drift with the tide, giving way to their worst impulses. Those born under Taurus between sunset and midnight will never be able to keep money as Venus is too strong for them. Those born between midnight and sunrise may become rich.
Generally they are ardent lovers, and may marry more than once.
