I have been interested in astrology since 1965 and use it daily. I have sun, moon, rising and mercury in Taurus.
Taurus is a yin or feminine sign. For years, I wondered why I was slow to anger, but when angry was violent and out of control. I let things build up to the point of explosion. My ego, personality, the way I appear to others and my thinking processes are all Taurian.
The proverbial stubborn bull has no equal…Scorpio and Capricorn to a point, but Taurus takes the cake in being determined. We are jealous and possessive with people and things, but mostly our things. We just do not want anything taken from us. We are all about security; we ‘know’ we do not control sex, but our opposite Scorpio does! A Taurus sun sign always has a Scorpio descendant, so study your descendants’ input.
Taurus is the ruler of money, and with four major signs in Taurus, perhaps I should have more. I do have a stubborn streak as an old hippie born in the Haight/Ashbury district of San Francisco in the 50’s. I pretty much listen to the beat of my own drum.
I think what my sun, moon rising and mercury represent is an appreciation for appreciation. It sounds weird, but the path to greater riches of all kinds in simple appreciation
I have always worked for myself and never liked school or college. I cannot stand boredom of any kind and fight it wherever it comes up. My duty is to be happy, even if I was a hobo hoping trains, or homeless. True wealth is loving all that is and not being afraid to communicate and ask for things. Only work at what is ennobling and advance your gift of spirit.
To show you how stubbornness can work, just realize there is nothing new under the sun. Life is a playground to learn faith and courage. Our only duty is to serve at our gift and be happy doing it. I have had four wives, Taurus, Scorpio, Libra and Capricorn. These times we are going through remind me of 1964 to 1967.
While money rules commerce and trumps sophistry, Taurus cannot ‘buy’ love or loyalty. The best thing a Taurus can do is stay focused on business and let God bring the crown of glory. It takes a special woman to accept a Taurus, but few if any are more loyal, despite their human foibles.
I hope this was not too long and it helped someone.
