The Yearly Taurus New Moon is right around the corner which makes this an ideal time to connect to the Taurus area and energy in your chart. The results of this connection will help you understand how the sign of Taurus shows up in your life, which will then help you better make your Taurus New Moon goals – I’ll do a separate post on Friday with instructions for that. Today, it’s all about recognizing your own Tauresean side and tapping into the energy that this sign is currently offering to all of us: More self-worth, luxury and pleasure.

Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac, moving from Aries assertive and self-centered perspective to one of awareness of our senses and the rhythms of nature; our values and self-worth; patience and grounding.

Taurus is our first earth sign, sharing the traits of dependability, stability and practicality with the other two earth signs, Virgo and Capricorn. Where it differs is in it’s fixed quality, adding stubbornness and extra doses of strength and determination. It’s ruler, Venus, adds charm, a love of luxury & the easy life and enjoyment of good food and drink. I always picture a vintner as having a Taurus personality – working with the land, loving earthy luxury, patience for long processes that add value and using their senses to cultivate soil that has the perfect blend of desired notes.

A great practice to get in touch with Taurus energy is to do a quick and easy ten minute meditation. Get relaxed, don’t worry so much about posture or correct breathing. Sit anywhere and in a way that makes you feel comfortable. Chose a favorite area of your home or a spot in nature that feels alive to you; somewhere that you enjoy being. After a few deep breaths, bring your focus to the sounds that grace this area, how they make you feel and why they might add to your enjoyment of this spot. After a couple of minutes of focusing on the noises in this place, switch to noticing how the temperature, any movement of air and the vibration through the room feel. Once you have made a connection to this, notice the smells. After a couple of minutes spent on each of those senses, try to allow your focus to encompass all and let them wash over you with their own rhythms.

This is a great practice to connect to your senses in the way a Taurus is typically aware of their senses. Now, take this still practice and put it into motion with a slow-paced nature walk. You will experience so much more stimulation through your surroundings and an awareness of yours and the earth’s natural rhythms; the feel of wind and moisture; smells of dew and wild flowers; the sounds of crickets, birds and critters rustling around in the bushes and trees. With this slowing down and attention to how your senses relate and connect with your environment, notice if this brings a greater sense of value and worth to your mood.

Now that we’ve gone through this practice and felt the energy of Taurus, it’s time to learn where in your chart Taurus rules and how to better cultivate this sign’s senses into that area of your life. A hint, wherever this sign falls, you will be very stubborn. Read for both your Sun sign and rising sign to get a more comprehensive idea of your connection to Taurus.

Aries) Because you are naturally the first sign of the zodiac, every sign rules their natural house, meaning the sign that rules each house in your chart has very similar themes to the area it rules. Taurus rules your second house of earned income, personal resources, your values and how you budget. With Taurus here, you are very stubborn about your personal finances and may find it hard to share. On the upside, you have a great work ethic and understnd the value of a dollar and the value of your skill sets. You tend to understand how to make and save money (although being a rash Aries could counter your desire to save at times).

Taurus) This is your sign, so Taurus rules your first house of assertion, how you interact with the world and your personal style/look. You may have an earthy, slow-paced way about you. You likely enjoy nature but also luxury – we’ll call you a glamping sort. Your senses are top notch and you can’t stand harsh sounds, smells or textures. Natural in your appearance, you emit a stable and enduring quality. When you decide on an agenda, there is no changing it. Something about you says: I’m worth every dollar I make and I know how to make AND save them.

Scorpio) You tend to attract partners who have a very stable sense of self-worth and understand value and the small pleasures in life.

You might make a better income or find more self-worth through partnerships.
