We have eight more days of the Sun in Aries. According to most sources supporting the Tropical Zodiac, the Sun will begin its transit through the astrological sign, Taurus on April 20th. Keep in mind, in the Tropical Zodiac, astrological signs and actual constellations don’t always align, but that’s not an issue.
So, the Sun enters Taurus on the 20th day of April. The symbol representing Taurus is the bull, and a bull can be both fierce and gentle. Aries is where the zodiac commences in the 1st house, so Taurus would be the natural 2nd house. The sun’s energies and qualities blend with that of Taurus and the combination manifests in the arena of possessions. What do you have?
Taurus is a feminine earth sign that’s fixed, and those born under this sign will be celebrating their birthdays between April 20th and May 20th.
Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and harmony, rules over Taurus, which is kind of funny because we don’t think of love and beauty when we think about bulls, but in terms of the house the bull rules, it fits quite perfectly. In the house of possessions we acquire those things we consider beautiful or that which we love because they bring a sense of harmony into our lives and our environment. And the key word there is sense because Taurus is an earth sign, and the element of earth is about sensibility where happiness is gained through flexibility.
There’s a connection between what we possess (2nd house) and beauty (Venus) and our senses (earth). Does it smell good? Does it look good? Does it sound good? Does it feel good? You get the point.
For those of us who are born when the sun was in Taurus, we have the will power and energy to fill our lives with everything pleasing. To go after our love! And that’s the struggle for the bull who is seen as a ferocious creature. To show the world that looks are deceiving, and I’m not the man or woman I appear to you to be. There’s more to me. Love and money are in focus here.
Happy Birthday Season to all you Bulls out there!
