Sun Sign Overview
Your sun— also known as your star sign— is the most fundamental part of your entire natal chart. It’s what you see in the daily horoscope column and is central to your zodiac identity. It highlights the main facets of your personality that are most obvious to you and those around you. Not all sun sign traits will resonate, as each individual has a personal natal chart that reveals more about your personality than the description below.
Taurus Sun Overview
Anyone born between April 20 and May 20 are of the Taurus zodiac sign. Taurus is the fixed Earth sign of the zodiac denoted as the bull. Known for their down-to-Earth personalities, yet what distinguishes them from everyone else is their ‘classic’ eccentricity. Classy and a bit bougie with a double dose of boho, as Taurus dreams big and dreams greener. Their green thumb has a taste for luxurious yet granola, yet what’s simple and authentic. The zodiac’s soul-rocker has a tenacity for what’s beautiful in life — a fiercely compassionate and steadfast soul with a rowdiness putting a fire in their core.
Dare-to-be-different Taurus isn’t what I’d call ‘traditional’ or reserved in their personalities. I’m not sure where people get their free-spirited side confused with ‘conservative’. Sure, many have this thing for timeless trends and the whole thrift store/sk8r boi/80s jock vibe. They strongly value preferences and traditions; however, Taurus is probably one of the least boring personalities one will meet. They’re generally extroverts or ambiverts, though it depends on their personal natal chart. Gregarious and often popular (or have potential to be) due to their quirky charm. Even more reserved Taureans are friendly, though they can come off a bit snooty. Which, is rarely ill intentioned considering something — such as an expectation or complacency in what they were taught — likely made them feel it wasn’t safe for them to express their more eccentric side.
Taurus’s Venusian nature inclines them to art and creation. No matter how chillax they are, they’re the ones with outrageous school spirit and enthusiasm for music, art, and overall life. One defining feature is their spatial and bodily intelligence — to include a strong clairvoyance and clairaudience, depending on the Moon sign. It’s what equips them with considerably natural abilities to build, draw, paint, visualize, and/or physically perform. Whether it’s architecture, visual art, photography/videography, fashion design, construction, modeling/body building, sports (to include dance and cheer), or anything related. More technically inclined placements may suit areas in healthcare, urban development, business, finance, marketing, product design, to include entrepreneurship. Their intelligence is one of their most underrated qualities, yet many choose to channel and demonstrate these abilities creatively. Depends on the native’s personal chart.
As Taurus rules over the environmental sector, Mother Nature, and Gaia, it makes sense to why many have a knack for exploring, studying, and sustaining nature. Also don’t be surprised if some are in agriculture, Earth science, land surveying, natural park services, or anything related. From soaking up sunshine to environmental tourism, they crave new experiences in different landscapes. Anything outdoor recreation and spontaneous luxury vacations with a view are on par with Taurus’s taste. Remember it has less to do with them being superficial or materialistic — they have a knack for generating money as well, as they’re quite hardworking, practical, and focused in this area. ‘Work hard, treat harder’ is the Taurus motto. They’re somewhat thrifty in their spending, but they also have impulsive splurges where the price tag doesn’t speak to them.
Likewise, their energy resonance to sound is pronounced compared to other signs. Anything getting their blood pumping puts them in their mojo, which, makes sense considering they rule the ears, vocal cords, throat, and neck in medical astrology. It’s no wonder why many are powerhouse musicians, especially in areas of sound production (such as a DJ or an instrumentalist). Aside from this, look for the one who always has earphones and rhythmically bumping their heads in on the way to class or in the office — they’re probably a Taurus. Shower singing, cheering in the stands, to blaring the music in their houses and cars serves as a release for them. Or, chill and soul-vibing music helps them achieve yin. Depends on the mood, and more specifically on their personal chart.
Their physicality is one of their greatest assets. Taurus uses personal presentation as an art form in itself — whether it’s their style, bodies, makeup, hair, tattoos, piercings, or anything related. Authentic self-expression is something that should come naturally, but given their individuality has been suppressed in any area — expect them to act out in some way. While they’re rarely harmful to others, they either (1) become vitally complacent in their suppression that has serious mental health implications, (2) they can have dramatic episodes that are overbearing to others, or (3) can be a bit self-destructive through overconsumption. Given they have room healthily grow and self-experiment, however, these will be subtle in their manifestation.
Of course, Taurus is also notorious for their stubbornness. They’re definitely footloose and fancy free, yet they can sometimes be unnecessarily argumentative. While Taurus doesn’t have an overwhelming need to always prove themselves or speak out, get on a topic they’re passionate about and you may be surprised at how outspoken and feisty they’re capable of being. While they can be lazy and love downtime, this whole ‘couch potato’ myth about Taurus isn’t even fair. The conflicting part of their personality is how they seek good vibes, yet they also need a regular energy release. The endless memes about Taurus loving food and snacking? There’s a medical astrology explanation behind it, to include why Taurus needs release. Not only do many enjoy cooking, many love natural foods as is. To include a willingness to spend more money on quality food and dining experiences. (Water placements in their chart can contribute to more laziness, however. Everyone has it in them to be lazy.) They rule the oral receptors for pleasure — hence, why many people associate them with eating, drinking, or substance use.
Additionally, Taurus is noted as the ‘Teddy bear’ for a reason. One convo people aren’t ready to have is how Taurus is one of the top signs who has their generosity and kindness taken for granted. They’re less cautious but instead grow indifferent in how they express their generous and upbeat side. Their dramatic side flairs up if they don’t feel understood, but saying they ‘enjoy drama’ isn’t necessarily true. Not to say they value what people think too much…but they do not want beef with people. One thing they deserve credit for is how they honestly seek peace in most situations. A bit confrontational, defensive, and temperamental at times, but they know how likable they are — and it low key bothers them if they did anything to someone. Lacking emotion is not accurate like the mainstream portrays — they’re softies to a fault and need validation like anyone else.
Taurus’s vibrant spirit makes them gregarious, approachable, and overall pleasant to be around. No matter how out of wack they put themselves in pursuit of their own happiness. The Taurus paradox: their “I’m not here for a long time but a good time” mindset makes them age backwards to where slow and easy living allows for more enjoyment. Green and shiny things offer them solace, but it equally grounds them to the idea that our bodies are meant to physically experience life to the fullest — engaging every physical sense and creating beauty through the lens of our individuality. Taurus wears their third eye on their forehead — representing themselves as symbols of peace, love, and happiness.
