Taurus Season Break-Down


Latin for “bull,” the taurus is the second sign of the zodiac. It lies between aries and gemini, lasting from April 20th to May 20th. Of the four elements, taureans are earth signs, making them patient, grounded, loyal, and very stubborn. Taureans stereotypically are fairly materialistic and are often seen as gluttonous or lazy. With their stubbornness comes an intense resilience for taureans, making them hard workers and very loyal. Stubbornness, of course, comes with flaws. Commonly seen in a taurus is a sort of my-way-or-the-highway attitude. The ruling planet of the taurus is Venus (the planet of art, love, and beauty). This takes the taurus’ materialistic approach to life to a different, more level pattern, seeking comfort in nature, the company of loved ones, and general pleasant surroundings. 

What does it mean to be an “earth sign”? Each zodiac element possesses different traits and includes three of the signs. For example, the signs that fall under the earth category are taurus, virgo, and capricorn. Each of these tend to be resistant to change and likes to stick to what they know. They are often connected to nature and are very in tune with their senses. 

The ruling planet of a sign predicts core traits of each sign by following the archetypes depicted by a planet’s defined god or goddess. Venus is the ruling planet of both taurus and libra. What this means for taureans is that they like to enjoy the more materialistic sides of life and fall under a divine feminine ruling.
