Moon in Taurus

If you have the Moon in Taurus, your emotional nature is steadied and others find this quality soothing in you. You are generally even-tempered and peace-loving and are not easily ruffled or given to emotional displays. You can be downright stubborn at times, especially when it comes to making changes that are emotional in nature or that require emotional adjustment. You seek security and often expect this security to come from materials possessions and resources. Hence, you desire to collect material goods and money.

You cling to things from the past or things you are used to in order to find this security. A great deal of affection and closeness is needed by you and this helps to assuage feelings of insecurity. But sometimes you hold onto people much too closely so they feel they can’t breathe. You expect loyalty in love and you are very devoted to those you care about. You have the tendency to indulge in sensual comforts and activities. Eating rich or sweet food seems to give you security. You may have a weight problem because of this. Food can become a substitute for emotional satisfaction and love.

Taurus are resourceful, determined, and persistent. You perhaps have a green thumb and are good at getting anything to grow and prosper. You are happiest when working with your hands, probably with the earth or things of the earth. You can be lead but never pushed into doing things. You hate and fear sickness and pain. Too great a comfort with the status quo can prevent you from making necessary changes. Don’t be too rigid in thought or deed.

The Moon is at its best (exalted) in Taurus: you deeply appreciate life’s fundamental values, and are strongly centered in the material and your senses. Your emotions and desire nature are intense, and you’re sensitive and receptive to the world around you. You have a lot of charm and a love of beauty, but your sensuous appreciation of all things can become laziness. Money and a great need for security are important to you, which you fill through emotional attachments and with things. You’re stubborn, have a lot of pride, and are good at holding your temper; but god help anyone when you lose it!
