Vrishaamsakagate svasmin sukhadaasca catusPadaah. BPHS, Effects of Karakamsa, 3
The Atmakarka in Taurus (Taurus Svamsa) indicates pleasures and quadrupeds.
If your Atmakaraka falls in Taurus in Navamsa, your self-development in this life involves material security. During the time these sutras were written, quadrupeds were one of the most valuable assets a person could have. They provide convenience, resources, food, transportation, and more. The most accepted and basic interpretation of this sutra is that it gives material comforts. For some, it may literally involve working or gaining from animals.
The significance of the number 4 is emphasized in quadruped. The number four represents stability, strength, and endurance. Your life will be marked with experiences that are meant to make you more stable and secure. The strength/condition of your svamsa will indicate the ease (or struggle) you gain material security.
Taurus Svamsa Soul Desire
Your soul wanted to be born to explore the physical/material pleasures that our world has to offer, and you shouldn’t feel guilty for that. This desire to be in control of your own security often gives Taurus svamsa an entrepreneurial spirit and sense for business. Family businesses are also possible.
Notice how quadrupeds are almost always involved in work that is of benefit to others. Cows, horses, dogs, sheep, goats, and other quadrupeds are prized because they help people at large. One way that Taurus Svamsa’s can increase their material security is by helping others. Ultimately, you’ll want to reach a point where you’re using your resources for the highest good.
For the Taurus svamsa, they can only begin to look at their emotional security after first obtaining material security. A lack of emotional security can lead to overindulgence and excessiveness. This svamsa can accelerate their growth by “sharing the wealth” and using their resources to benefit others.
