Planets in Taurus
You are the second sign of the Zodiac, Taurus, with the Bull as your symbol. Though the charging Bull represents power and strength, don’t let the symbolism confuse you – You can be rather soft and sophisticated in your nature. Just like a bull is docile until it is tempted, you are also easy-going till the time you are provoked or instigated. You are known for your determination, though, and there is not much that can distract you from your goals.
You give a lot of importance to simplicity and stability in life, though many others around you may find you boring and lacking in excitement. You simply refuse to take unnecessary risks that can jeopardise your stability. You also attach a lot of significance to creature comforts, and can be quite materialistic, but this is what gives you that pragmatic touch. Though you cannot exactly be called an extrovert, you can be an excellent friend. You tend to assume the role of protector and guide to the friends who are close to you. Outlined here are merely generalised traits.
Astrology deals with ten planets, namely the Sun, the Moon (the two luminaries are considered planets in astrology), Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Minor celestial bodies, such as the Dark Moon, asteroids and the nodal axis, are also taken into account. Each planet has its precise function in the natal chart, and represents a specific energy. The planet’s action is influenced by the sign it tenants. It plays out primarily in the area of life indicated by the house where it is posited.
Taurus Ruling Planet: Venus
As many of us know, Venus (Aphrodite in Greek mythology) is the Goddess of love. She was considered to me "the mother of the Romans". She was married, but had many lovers and admirers. She was also the mother of Cupid, and could even make herself a virgin at her own will. Venus has a lot to do with nature and growth as like Venus. She gives Taurus their desire to spend most of their time, effort, and money to surround themselves with beautiful and sensual things. A happy home and stable relationships are everything to Taurus.
As fast and impulsive as Aries is, Taurus, the fixed earth sign next door, loves to wait. Taurus has endless patience and turns any planet in this sign into a solid, thorough force to be reckoned with. Taurus planets never quit—even when they probably should. They’re responsible, reliable, honest as they come, practical as the day is long, and not afraid of hard work. They are fixed, so their reputation for stubbornness isn’t accidental. However, the opposite side of the coin of stubborn is "solids—and that they are. Planets in Taurus are regular rocks, endowed with a "stick to-itiveness" that other planets envy. Since Taurus is ruled by Venus, it’s not surprising to find that these planets are sensual and luxury-loving, too. They love to be spoiled—whether with good food, fine wine, or a Renoir painting. Taurus planets need peace and quiet like no others do. They don’t like their schedules to be disrupted, and they often need to be reminded that comfortable habits can become ruts.
