Astrology is a wonderful vehicle to self-knowledge and self-acceptance, which leads to understanding and acceptance of others. Knowledge is power, and self-knowledge is the greatest power of all. The types of astrology used are Vedic astrology with the tropical zodiac, including Jaimini Vedic astrology, and traditional western Horary astrology, the astrology of answering your specific urgent personal questions.

Taurus Sign: Stuff You Likely Haven’t Heard Before

Taurus People Are Often Foodies

If you have someone in your life who loves to feed you and enjoys the good things in life, that person is likely a Taurus Sun, Moon or Venus person. Neeshee Pandit and I talk about the sign of Taurus (VIDEOS BELOW) and reveal secrets about the sign you’ve probably never heard before. The season of Taurus began on April 21st and will continue until May 21st.

Why We Are Not Doing Forecasts Anymore

We will be talking about the signs every month instead of the Full Moon Forecasts. There will be things we discuss that you’ve never heard about the signs before unless you are a serious astrology student. Even then, we have examples and a tie-in to Ayurveda that will likely be new to you.

There are a gazillion Full Moon forecasts every month, and we want to talk about something that will relevant to you for longer than a week. There are many excellent astrologers making predictions on YouTube (AstroLada is very good, for instance). 

Planets in the Sign of Taurus

Neeshee and I talk about the sign of Taurus (in the VIDEOS below, part 1 & 2), it’s qualities and characteristics. The Taurus is the exaltation sign of the Moon (the best sign for the Moon). Mars and Jupiter don’t like being in the sign of Taurus, but there are no planets debilitated in Taurus. Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus.

Organs of the Body Ruled by Taurus

The organs of the body ruled by Taurus such as the thyroid, thymus, parathyroid (Neeshee has some great Ayurveda recommendations for this). Taurus also governs the mouth, tongue, teeth, salivary glands, tonsils, cheekbones, jaw, larynx, the seven cervical vertebrae, and upper portions of the esophagus and trachea.

Taurus rules the face and the senses, sight, hearing, and taste. Most Taurus people are foodies and enjoy the sensual aspects of life on earth. Taurus is the natural ruler of the second house in the birth chart, that which goes into the body and nourishes and sustains life – food.

Fixed Taurus Maintains the Spring Season

Aries begins the spring, but Taurus is the sign that maintains the spring. The modality of Taurus is fixed, which is exactly like it sounds (why do you think Taurus people can be so stubborn and resistant to change??) Fixed signs are stable and create security, and Taurus, in particular, creates material stability.

Taurus is of the earth element. The earth element is a mixture of water, air, and fire, or pitta, kapha, and vata. Neeshee says something informative, along with recommendations, about this mixture and what Taurus is like when it is imbalanced.

Taurus is Feminine & Gentle

The gender of Taurus is female and is a gentle sign. The feminine is receptive and responsive, rather than active and initiating. The ‘gentle’ female signs tend to keep their pain and misery to themselves rather than inflicting it on others. Taurus does well and behaves well when it feels good about its self-worth and, therefore, finds itself in supportive circumstances. The gentle female signs are more about being than doing, and Taurus gives the highest capacity for pleasure. 

The Temperament of Taurus

The caste of Taurus (we’re referring to temperament) is Vaishya, or the merchant, artist, agriculturist, or professional. The Vaishya caste always wants to improve and perfect their craft, no matter what that is. Artisans are people of the Vaishya caste, and they take pride in their work.

The guna of Taurus is Rajas. The three Gunas are Sattva, Tamas, and Rajas and they are present in all things and beings. If you don’t know what the Gunas are, Google them and read more about the Rajas Guna to understand more about the sign of Taurus.

The Consciousness of Taurus

Taurus can bear great burdens because the bull is four-footed. The consciousness of Taurus is rational, logical, and oriented towards the concrete (real) world, like all of the earth signs (Virgo and Capricorn too).

The rational is good common sense and sound judgment, naturally leading to reasonable actions. Taurus has the good sense to be aware of the limitations of the real world and so knows when to ration what is available.

There are more qualities of Taurus that Neeshee and I talk about and we go into a bit more detail on some of the things I’ve written here.

The Taurus Season & Taurus in Your Chart

Everything we talk about on Taurus will be relevant every year during the season of Taurus. It is also applicable to you if you have any planets, your Ascendant in the sign of Taurus. Everyone has a Taurus-ruled house in their birth chart. The chances are excellent that planets are aspecting the house of Taurus as well.

If you are a Taurus Sun, Moon, Venus person, a Taurus Atmakaraka person (the Atmakaraka is your ‘essence’ planet) or if you have any other planets in Taurus, this applies to you.

You may never have heard some of these descriptions of the sign of Taurus before!
