Taurus is a strong, dependable sign. Its keynotes are structure and endurance, and many of the crystals associated with Taurus ground energy into the physical body. Kunzite aids Taurus in removing obstacles that would otherwise overly engage this sign’s patient persistence. It also connects Taurus into deep centeredness and inner security. Rose Quartz encourages positive expression, unconditional love, trust, and harmony. Pink Tourmaline promotes feelings of joy and enthusiasm, and helps one to trust in the power of love. 

The Moon of Growth (Apr 20 – May 20)
This period is one of growth and dramatic change. This is a time for putting down new roots, towards expansion in material directions. The influence is one of rapid change.

Earth Element
Taurus is an Earth element—practical, careful, reliable, and resolute. They impart form and structure.

Material and sensual earth signs like to enjoy the pleasures of life. Earth shapes matter. Earth is the element of the material world—it’s stable and grounded. Practical and productive, it’s concerned with self-sufficiency and security. Earth signs are sensual signs. This is the element most involved in the physical body and the senses

A Fixed sign
Very earthy, quiet, affectionate, patient, and stable. Taureans are determined, practical, stubborn, and resistant to change. 

Zodiac Compatibility
Taureans in any relationship are steady, reliable, and rarely get upset, but they’re most compatible with Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. 

Famous Taureans
Barbara Streisand (Apr 24), Audrey Hepburn (May 4), and George Clooney (May 6).

  1. Hi Laurie! Lucky me – I have two Taurians – my son AND my daughter, though my daughter has some Gemini influence being closer to that sign. Stubbornness? Gee, ya think? 🙂

  2. Yep the stubbornness describes both of the Taurus two in my family. My older brother was born mid May and is very friendly and a great volunteer, but he runs hot and cold as a 29/11 and he is not very healthy. I go months without hearing from him and he was little to no help with my mother or father at the time of their greatest needs. He is a financial wreck.
    We seem to have little in common except liver disease and our facial features.

    My niece is also a Taurus and she has a Norwegian Bi-polar disorder and I can not predict her behavior.

    My brother would hate to think “pink” anything…he is a manly BLUE person.

    They both want so much control and are the center of their own attention.

    I find myself very much avoiding 29/11s and my Taurus connections, and by doing this I feel better about myself.
    Good write up here – thank you…

    • Patricia – That stubborn streak often stands Taureans in good stead because they stick-with-it until the job’s done.

      I’m pretty sure that if I was stuck on a deserted island that I wanted off of, I’d want a Taurus personality with me because they’d see to it that it happened. Me, on the otherhand (a Libra) would be focused on making it pretty while I was there (not so great for getting off the island)…

      • I think I learned from my Taurus friends – that if I was on a desert island with them – they would demand I get them off or would get themselves off and I would be totally on my own….I have always needed to do my own thing and follow my own pathway around them.

    • A Taurean can carry off pink, purple or even daisy chains without a bother. (Just hang it from horn to horn.)
      And while I’m here – Happy Christmas and a mellow new year to you and yours.

      • Paul – The visual you provide here (bull with daisy chain hanging from horn to horn) has me smiling this morning. Happy Holidays and a Healthy New Year to You and Yours as well, thank you 🙂

  3. My first mother-in-law is a Taurus and a wonderful woman. She and dad remained close to me even after the divorce from their son. Dad passed away some years ago, but Mom and I still keep in touch. They used to tell me I was the daughter they never had 🙂

  4. Hi, Laurie — my mother (April 29), my sister (April 30), and I (May 6) are all Taureans. Nice to know I share a birthdate with George Clooney. We are all stubborn for sure. I prefer to use the term “tenacious.” I totally agree with self-sufficiency and security — every move I make fulfills one or the other. When I was dependent upon my parents, I really REALLY disliked it. Dependency is not easy for me. There are times when I need to depend on others even if it is only to give me a ride to and from the auto mechanic. My goal is to remain totally independent until I join that great circus in the sky.

    • Barbara – I can say with confidence that every Taurus I know is self-sufficient, independent, and loves their freedom. Equally, once they have a bee in their bonnet, they’re highly motivated and there’s no stopping them. My hat is off to that type of tenacity 🙂

  5. Laurie, both of my parents were strong Taureans. “Taurus is an Earth element—practical, careful, reliable, and resolute.They impart form and structure.” These attributes describe my remarkable parentes perfectly! I am loving this fascinating insight. Thank you for your “Green Brain Enlightening Knowledge”.

  6. Ah, Laurie, a whole lot, including my sons Sammy (May 15) and Danny (May 17). My third son Jeremy is May 27, and my oldest daughter Melanie is May 30. (Both are Geminis)

    I just read some of the traits to them and they were pleased at some of the positive attributes.

    If my son Sammy isn’t stubborn and resistant to change, I don’t know who is. But he needs to eat vegetables, which he obstinately ignores despite teh pressure we apply.

    Beautiful flouescent pink shade there!

    • Sam – You’ve got two Taureans and two Gemini’s (today’s post) living under your roof. Hula Burgers! That combo alone makes for a HIGH ENERGY household, and that’s only taking into account four out of seven people who share a roof! The month of May looks to be an extremely EXPENSIVE month for you and Lucille. I can well imagine, however, that at least some of your children like to receive movie theater passes as gifts (my son and Kayley sure do).

  7. Laurie, I couldn’t for the life of me remember in Taurus people in my circle of until today. It’s very odd considering that approximately every twelfth person in the World is a Taurus. Then I remember my old 10th grade boyfriend in Delaware was born under that sign. Bingo! Steady as a rock, one of the kindest people I’ve ever met in my life. He moved to California and that took care of that. I do wish I knew some more, they must be mighty fine people.
