Taurus' natural placement in the zodiac is the second house of personal material resources. What you value may undergo major shifts and fresh new starts at the Taurus New Moon. Gratitude and appreciation are two values most likely to increase during this time period. Your sense of innocence can get renewed if your heart and mind are open to it.

Earth Day starts at the beginning of the Sun’s entry into the sign of Taurus on April 22nd. Taurus’ symbol is the bull, its associated color is green. It is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, beauty and money.

Taurus is a feminine earth sign and ruled by the planet Venus, the goddess of love. Taurus' zodiac symbol is the bull, the sign of Wall Street. Material comforts and possessions (things) are all important to Taurus. The Taurus native is associated with earthly pleasures, luxury, comfort and an abundant, fertile and creative life.
Taureans are known for being dependable and reliable. They can make great team players. As a fixed, earth sign, Taurus can be a rather conservative and stubborn and resist change. They prefer a relaxed, predictable lifestyle and can be prone to laziness and narrow-mindedness at times.
When Venus’ love energy is immature she can become jealous and possessive. She can feel threatened when something, or someone she loves and holds dear is being supplanted, or replaced by something that is new and foreign to her.
Provoking a Taurus is never a good idea as they can suddenly turn and charge at any perceived opponent with great ferocity when they feel threatened.
