Happy Birthday Taurus!
The story that comes to mind for you, Taurus, is of “Ferdinand the Bull”. Do you remember the children’s tale? Ferdinand was getting ready for his big moment, to go and fight the matador in the ring, but when the matador came looking for him, Ferdinand was nowhere to be found! Instead, the bull was dozing beneath a cork tree, enjoying the shade. Okay, some might call you lazy, but it’s actually more that you like to live your life in your own sweet time. And yes, you’re the most stubborn sign of the zodiac!
An earth sign, you’re happiest in nature, whether it’s gardening, hiking, cooking organic—anything that connects you to mother Earth. Your ruling planet is Venus, in Greek mythology she’s Aphrodite, the Goddess of love and pleasure. Your perfect scenario? A fabulous dinner party with friends, a table laid with flowers, delicious food, a jazz soundtrack playing in the background and plenty of good wine, of course. You’re a sensual creature, in touch with your five senses, and if you could get away with serving dinner ala natural…well, let’s just say, you are very comfortable in your body--which is something to celebrate!
Taurus rules money and security. Bulls love to build empires and are usually very successful in business. You tend to be conservative in your values, and are not a risk taker. Slow and steady is your motto, and the same goes for change, in the infamous words of Scarlett O’Hara—surely a Taurus: “You’ll think about that (change) tomorrow!” And like Miss O’Hara, your heritage, your land and home are very important to you. Note, you would not be happy in clothing made from drapes; you do love the finer things in life, and this includes lovely things.
Your family and friends consider you a rock—you’re always there, the one that everyone counts on for support. You thrive in situations where you can take a leadership role, and help others to find their way. Being of value to your friends and community is a big part of want makes you tick. You are extremely loyal when it comes to relationships, it’s “Until death do you part” for you all the way.
At the end of the day, you’re happiest…enjoying the shade under your cork tree, and smelling all the lovely daisies.
