TAURUS – The 2nd Sign of the Zodiac


Symbol: The tough bull, constantly charging and dashing at its opponent-displaying a fiery temper that is slow to boil. The bull fights to the end. He does not stop his charging and dashing and will not calm down unless he subdues his opponent or the opponent subdues him. Either way, somebody has got to win and somebody has got to lose when in to it with the Bull…

Taurus Symbol

House & Motto: “I have” therefore I am: self-esteem and earning abilities, I am finance, possessions and material things in life. I am security and resources. I am what you value in life alongside your very own self up to and including money.

I am the SECOND house, the baby of the bunch, who will kick and fight if you try to take my things from me. My approach to the world is like that of a baby.

“I have” because all of my possessions belong to me and like a baby, I hold on to them tightly because they are mine. Everything I see that I want is mine. Everything that I have is Mine! Mine!

Element: Earth (a solid) is relatively firm, compact, hard, rigid, and substantial. Alone, it is serious, not superficial or trivial. It is emotionally restrained and deliberate, secretive, strategic, reflective, and cautious so that it may make sound judgment, observation and evaluation. Earth is steady, fixed, stable, and does not tremble or totter. It is constant, unwavering, unfaltering, solid, resistant to pressure, and does not easily change its shape. Its responses are restrained-for fear of insecurity. It seeks perfection through deliberation and discrimination; untrusting of that which they cannot see, smell, touch, taste or hear.

Earth is practical and responsive by examining worthiness via tangibility.

Disposition: Typically, even numbered signs are introverts. Introverts tend to focus their energies on things in and of the world for themselves, and do not thrive on or require energy from it (in order to contribute to it). They do not like a lot of action and are usually non-verbally expressive and not a very sociable people. Introverts are most often quiet, retiring and introspective. They dislike parties and (by their selection and choice) have few friends and are reserved and distant except when in the company of those intimate friends. They prefer to be less “active”-less active in that they like to “study” the world and all that is in and of it without having to be active in it (because they tend to dislike excitement and hustle and bustle). Introverts are typically not risk takers and instead, are very calculating rather than impulsive. They are slow to answer, and prefer to do any kind of concentrated efforts alone. They are not very easy-going and carefree with everyday matters in life because they tend to take life matters very seriously. They prefer working alone rather than in groups and prefer an organized and systematic way of life.

Instinct: Objective (thinkers) are receptive to the object rather than the subject. They are not influenced by personal feelings and instead; think of the object while forming an opinion, as “thinking” is priority over feeling-to them.

They do not process subjective feeling with ease, therefore it is easy for them to think and deliberate rather than cope with emotion and feeling.
