The Sun in Taurus
The Sun has entered Taurus. As an Earth sign this indicates a down-to-earth attitude, praticality, resourcefulness and common sense. It is also a Fixed sign, bringing qualities of persistence, reliability, stability, strong reactions and stubborness.
Those born under this Sun sign are generally self-restrained, intense, practical and steadfast. The typical Taurean is quiet, reflective, patient, forbearing, but very determined. They really need stability, security, and reassurance. They are methodical but can be set in their ways and opinions. They are very affectionate and home loving with an appreciation of the good things in life. Once a Taurean has made up their mind it is almost impossible to change it. Being methodical they are ideally suited to work where patience and perseverance are needed. On the negative side they can be possessive, overpowering, and self-centered. Their desire to avoid conflict can result in problems escalting rather than being resolved.
Taureans will find this period good for reflection and self-care. It is also a good time for any form of building or construction, especially DIY. However, in relationships they need to be careful not to be too cloying or clingy, and to give their partners enough room to breathe. They should ensure that they take extra care of their throats at this time. Others will find this a good time for all matters involving the physical realm: the home, the garden, and the body. It is also a good time for tackling difficulties which require a methodical approach.
