April 20 – May 20
Take it s-l-o-w as you follow the dewy rose petals and heavenly chocolate aroma down a secret garden path. At the end of the path, Taurus sits in her luxurious home, eating a Michelin-starred gateau in haute couture. The ambient music in the background is as sensual as the bull herself. And when the mood strikes, she dances with such elegance and grace it’s like watching a swan lake spectacle.
Ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, Taurus is slow, sensual and rooted in all the earthly pleasures. This Earth Soul doesn’t leap too far beyond the comforts of the delicious five senses. She is connected to her body and moves with the pace of nature. Her divine lesson: to remind us to slow down to sample Earth’s array of sweet sensual pleasures.
As the zodiac’s second sign, Taurus is all about security and stability. Naturally, the earth sign is a master builder of a treasure trove of wealth and a glorious home to boot. She has the stamina, patience and resourcefulness to move one first class brick at a time. And of course, her exquisite creations are practical, eco-friendly and built to last.
Once Upon A Time
There once was a giant bull named Cerus. Cerus loved to meander through the charming Greek villages, smelling the delicious aromas of baked bread and herbs. Sadly, he was too big for a leisurely stroll in town, and ended up trampling over all the fruit stands and small children. Naturally, the villagers were terrified by the wild bull.
One day, the goddess Persephone found Cerus stomping on a field of spring flowers without realising it. Then, something magical happened! In Persephone’s divine presence, the bull found his inner zen and stopped crushing the innocent blooms.
One small step at a time, the spring goddess taught Cerus to manage his incredible strength. And every year thereafter, the two companions would reunite in early spring (aka Taurus season). Persephone would ride on top of the giant bull, so they could ignite the blooming of flowers.
However, all good things must come to an end. Every fall duty calls, and Persephone would descend into the underworld. So what’s a bull to do without his special companion? Cerus flew to the cosmos to wait patiently for another spring as the Taurus constellation.
