Sun in Taurus
April 21 – May 20
Symbol: The Bull
Ruling Planet: Venus
Soul Purpose: To grow away from the material and realize their most important value is what exists in the soul.
Taurus represents the passive qualities of venus and the values of the 2nd house. In fact, the 2nd how the house of what we value, as well as material assets and wealth. As the second sign in the zodiac, you can think of Taurus as representing that second stage of life, where we begin to explore and take delight in the world through our senses. Similarly, Taurus loves to stimulate their senses with beautiful sights, food, drink, textures, ect.
In understanding Taurus Sun, one must understand the Sun’s relationship to its ruling planet, Venus. You see, Sun is an enemy to Venus, so in this sign, the Sun’s mission of following your ambition and soul’s purpose can get lost in seeking material possessions, sensual pleasure, and wealth. Whether or not you have a healthy relationship with possessions, or tend to place too much value on materialistic things, look at the condition of Venus.
One of the strengths of Taurus is their ability to be content and find pleasure in each moment. They truly have an unspoilt way of enjoying what the world has to offer. They should focus on their ability to be present in each moment and enjoy what they have, rather than focusing on needing more.
They will need to be aware of their tendencies to become “stuck in a rut” due to their resistance to change. Remember Taurus, growth can only come from making necessary changes and sometimes embracing the unknown.
