Taurus Basic Zodiac Information:
Date Duration: April 20 to May 20
Sign Quality: Fixed
Planetary Ruler: Venus
From April 20 to May 20, the Sun is in Taurus. Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac and it’s cycle starts in spring - Taurus season. Taurus is symbolized by the bull and is associated with the element, earth. Taurus is ruled by the planet of love, Venus. Taurus energy is generally calm, but has the tendency to become aggressive especially during difficult situations. During this time every sign of the Zodiac will be exposed to Taurus' energy. How this energy affects you depends on your personality and ability to adapt to the changes around you.
Taurus souls are straightforward and methodical. They love to bask (mostly alone) in the fruit of their efforts and believe the path to success lies in a disciplined and organized approach to work and life.
During this season, Taurus may feel extra passionate and go for bigger gains and rewards. They will see rewards coming as a result of their sensible approach to work and life. Taurus may feel like spending on themselves during this time of the year as their way of realizing what their hard work has brought them. Most Taurus prefer to keep to themselves and so their spending may be misunderstood by others as greedy or poorly planned.
Taurus’ taste for success may come off as materialistic or excessive but most Taurus just want to surround themselves with things they love and they also want others around them to enjoy themselves too. Taurus just sees this as the right way to live and have a tendency to fill their life with things they find beautiful.
Those in Taurus have a tendency to be bullheaded. They do not like change and once they’ve set their mind to something, they will not alter it. Taurus see this trait as a strength and it can (and will) lead them to success in different facets of their life. They have a strong sense of duty and many Taurus are most comfortable with routines and work passionately to grow in their careers.
Taurus season may be a good time for many to work harder on their goals, small and big alike. You can take advantage of Taurus' determined energy to focus on endeavors that would be beneficial to your long-term success. Taurus' energy and ability to get things done with intense focus and determination can help anyone who has trouble concentrating on their goals. However, if you feel that you are more attuned to the aggressive part of Taurus' energy, you might want to slow it down a bit during this season. Fortunately, there are stones and crystals that can help you out during Taurus season whether you want to take advantage of Taurus' energy to turn your goals into reality or you want to slow down a little and learn to appreciate the present moment.
A Closer Look at Taurus' Strengths and Weaknesses
Taurus beings are very down to earth people who, unlike the bold Aries, like to stay away from the spotlight and live their lives keeping away from trouble. They are practical and have an almost hard-headed sense of principles that they absolutely follow, even to their own detriment.
Taurus are well aware of what is acceptable in social situations and business settings and have a rigid sense of accepting these unspoken rules and believes life would be simpler if everyone around them did the same. Taurus is not very good with situations that deviate from the norm and struggle with keeping up with wilder, more spontaneous people.
Taurus are more like the strong, silent type. They are very reliable and easily gain people’s trust as their value for honor and sensibility is easily picked up on by those around them. They may not be the fun daredevils of a group, but when something needs to be addressed and fixed behind the scenes, Taurus find it easy to handle problems calmly and patiently.
When something is working perfectly, people don’t notice it. It’s only when something goes wrong that people start talking about it and bring attention to the matter. This is a truth about the world that Taurus is very aware of as they are used to keeping things in running order without taking any praise for it.
Taurus would prefer to fix the problem on their own and often ignore the loudest voices and their complaints. Taurus are very persistent and will stay on top of matters, tunnel-visioning on the problem until they solve it, possibly ignoring those around them providing real help as they are drowned out by the loudest complaints.
