Taurus taurus
(Born between April 20 - May 19)
This month's sign is Taurus the Bull, a feminine earth sign ruled by Venus. It is appropriate that Earth Day is observed annually on or close to the day the Sun enters this sign in April. Taurus loves the outdoors, gardening, farming, picking up rocks, and looking after the environment. They don't mind getting their hands dirty and usually have a carefully landscaped property. They prefer the country life. Living in the city is too hectic for them.

They are laid back people who take a long time to accomplish things. They can be lazy and if they don't feel like it, they won't do it. They know better than anyone how to relax. Quite passive, they smile politely and just sit there. Being a fixed sign, they are probably the most stubborn and set in their ways than anybody. They procrastinate.

Taurus men and women make good bankers, stockbrokers and realtors. They like to accumulate money and real estate. They are good at making money and hold on to it too tightly. They must learn to share the wealth and not be stingy. Taurus folks appreciate fine art, music and architecture. They love gourmet food and fancy restaurants. They have tastefully decorated homes with quality furnishings. They don't go for the ostentatious like Leo, but their furniture must be sturdy and finely crafted, such as Ethan Allen for example.

They tend to be short and stocky, and have great physical strength. They are prone to neck injuries and sore throats. But since they don't get as stressed out as most people do, they are healthy and hardly ever sick. They rarely get angry but when they do, they explode. Get out of the way. They work hard if they want to achieve something, and have great patience and endurance.

This Month's Horoscope
During the first half of the month the Sun Mars conjunction will continue to influence activities at home. There may be arguments, upsets or an accident. Things will calm down by Labor Day. Just ride the waves. Try to get along with your family. Or there may be a lot of work in the house to do, and everyone is getting along just fine. It’s not necessarily a difficult period, but there is a strong focus on home life, and for some it will affect the career or public life too.
