Astrology: Taurus Qualities and Karma

Hello fellow Taurus friends, 

If you were born between April 21st and May 20th, your astrological sun sign is Taurus, the bull, like me! So what does this mean and how can we use this idea to gain a better understanding of ourselves? First, let’s breakdown what astrology is all about.

For thousands of years, cultures have noticed that people who are born around similar times possess many similar personality traits. It is thought that the position of the stars at the time of our birth determines what type of energy we bring into the world, as if we are just a microcosm of the macrocosmos. 

Let’s take Taurus as our example. Born in the Spring, Taurus babies possess many of the season’s qualities. Taurus is an Earth sign, meaning it’s all about cultivation and growth. Taurus may not be the spark that starts the fire, but is definitely the wood that keeps the fire burning. 

Like Spring, this sign is all about creating and manifesting in the material world. Because of this, Taurus has a great appreciation for beauty and a deep belief in abundance (think about nature itself). Taureans believe in their inherent self-worth as a creation of Mother Nature.

But the great irony of this source of strength is that it can also be the source of our weakness. Tauruses can be possessive and greedy. On their challenging days, they can experience fear of scarcity - of not having or even being enough.

Taurus babies can always look to nature as an example of the natural ebbs and flows of the universe. Earth experiences seasons in order to continue to be abundant. Winter comes to eliminate what is no longer needed so that new life can thrive in the Spring. 

Remembering this cycle can remind us that when there seems to be scarcity, we are actually preparing and re-engergizing for future manifestation. Appreciate this time! Use it to take good care of yourself and get strong for what's to come.
