The Sun is currently in Taurus

The Sun is the most visible and important planet of astrology at the level of physical life and symbolically represents ego and will. The Sun spends about 30 days in each sign, so that the cycle of the 12 signs defines our year. With Sun in Taurus, and especially in the beginning of this period, everyone has an increased focus on the material world. Even for non-nature lovers, with the maturing splendor of the spring-time all around them they are in love with the beauty of their natural surroundings and take joy in sensual pleasures. Gardening becomes the craze. Taurus is patient. Through patience and persistence a solid sense of self-worth is the goal and this leads to an increase in net worth.

Taureans revel in the pleasures of life. They crave the security and comfort of relaxing in the warmth of their home environment. They value the senses and the enjoyment of material things.

Although they are quiet on the surface, almost passive, Taureans possess a powerful will and can be quite stubborn at times, and perhaps somewhat rigid in their thinking. Taureans also tend to be loving, obedient and loyal. Material rewards seem to come easily to them, and they are able to lead the good life without being excessively concerned about it. Taureans are practical, and provide a purposeful, productive and stabilizing influence for themselves and all those around them.

Taurus by Element and Mode

The element related to Taurus is Earth.

The Earth element is feminine or yin, in-taking and receptive. It corresponds to the Jungian typology of Sensation. The Earth energy is grounded and heavy, responding to the gravity of physical circumstances and limitations. Earth people are in touch with their bodies and the pleasures of the physical world around them. They are givers of form and structure. They endure. They are self-sufficient in a way that the lighter Fire and Air elements are not.

The mode of Taurus is Fixed.

Fixed signs are in-taking rather than outgoing, receptive rather than originating. People with many Fixed signs tend to be stubborn and difficult to sway from their intended course of action.

Ruling Planet of Taurus

The ruling planet of Taurus is Venus.

Venus is the planet of love and relationship. Venus is in-taking, rather than out-going (as represented by Mars), and rules the signs Libra and Taurus. Venus has its exaltation in Pisces, and is associated with aesthetics, beauty, refinement and romance. Its position in the chart indicates the area in which the give and take of love, affection and sensual pleasure will be expressed.
