Taurus - Apr 21 - May 20:
Keyword: "I Know".
Taurus is solid in nature and is symbolic of the fertility of spring brought into fruition/conception (whereas Aries symbolizes the seed). It symbolizes foundations; the neck is the foundation for the head, but it is also symbolic of holdings of property and objects which have permanence. The solid quality is not necessarily in the material sense, but describes someone or something that is able to continue at length with a project without easily quitting. Solidity is persistence. By the medieval era the element of earth was ascribed to Taurus. Earth is cool and dry which describes the placid nature these natives are said too have.
In relation to the sign of Aries, which has to do with expression and awareness, Taurus is about the awareness of other things outside the self for the first time, introducing the idea of object permanence, and as a result, is a producer of wealth. It is interesting in this regard that the Moon is exalted in this place and that it is associated with Plato's "Other". The Moon also has alot to do with fortune. Valens says, "Those born in this zoidion will be good, versed in a handicraft, hard-working, good at preserving things, pleasure loving, music loving, generous, while some of them will be husbandmen, planters, builders". The ancients say that Taurus has these qualities because it has adopted Venus as its house steward. The other signs adopt planets in the same manner.
