Artist's Description

More from my zodiac series…Taurus…with a twist…

Taurus (♉) is the second astrological sign in the Zodiac, which spans the zodiac between the 30th and 59th degree of celestial longitude. In the Tropical zodiac, the Sun transits this area of the zodiac between April 21 to May 20 each year.
Individuals born during these dates, depending on which system of astrology they subscribe to, may be called Taureans
Taurus has been seasonally associated with the flourish of spring. Because the season has settled, astrologers call it a fixed sign, indicating stability, resistance to change, and the ability to ‘enjoy the people’. According to astrologers, the sign is governed by Venus, the planet of art, procreation and indulgence, which adds the traits of creativity and appreciation of life’s material luxuries. The moon is also associated with this sign, which it governs by exaltation.

Astrologers classify Taurus as a negative or passive (introvert) sign. This gives the characteristics of being reflective, receptive to the ideas of others: typically, a ‘thinker’ rather than a ‘doer’. But being of the earth-triplicity, Taurus is considered by astrologers to be a highly practical sign which is happiest when involved in some kind of creative process. Although generally considered easy-going and placid, as a fixed sign Taureans are likened to the bull in being slow to show anger, but capable of raging if pushed too far. It is also said Taureans enjoy basic ‘creative comforts’ and don’t allow others to disturb them easily, but they don’t forgive and forget easily. Joanna Watters (2003) defined a keyphrase for this sign as “I possess”, and summarises its strengths and weaknesses: "The positive side to this fixity is a ferocious willpower and absolute loyalty to loved ones, although they need to guard against possesiveness.
