We’re moving, once again, into Taurus season – the astrological season of sensuality, sensibility, and a deep connection with Mother Nature.
Taurus is a generous, loyal, and charming sign that can draw anyone in. Their warm personality is inviting and uplifting – especially when they’re emotionally balanced. Like any zodiac sign, however, the Taurus personality possesses both positive and negative traits, and the negative traits are generally amplified if the body’s vibrations are unbalanced. This guide will tell you everything you need to know about the most powerful chakra for the Taurus personality and how to find the balance you need to amplify your best traits.
We each have seven major chakras in our bodies at all times, acting as points of energy. And it’s important to keep these chakras balanced and open so they move freely and allow our energy to flow. While chakra work is important for every zodiac sign, each sign has a chakra that connects with it and affects that sign most powerfully.
For Taurus, that chakra is the Heart chakra. When this or any chakra is misaligned within the Taurean body, they can feel unmotivated, stubborn, impatient, disloyal, and resentful. It’s important for the Taurus to balance their chakras, especially the Heart, to maintain emotional balance and compassion.
Before we explore chakra work for Taurus, let’s take a look at the personality traits that makes Taurus so unique.
Taurus Personality Traits
Positive Traits Include:
Negative Traits Include:
- Addictive behaviors
Every sign under the Sun has both positive and negative traits; however, the negative traits seem to stick out more prominently when the chakras are blocked or unbalanced. Exploring the astrological associations with the chakras makes it easier to understand the chakra work that proves most beneficial for earthy Taurus.
Taurus Chakra Work
Taurus is ruled by friendly, sensual Venus, a planet that influences beauty, love, and finances. It is important for a Taurus to balance all seven of the major chakras; however, the Heart chakra is connected to Venus and acts as a powerful force within the Taurean body. If you’re a Taurus and you begin feeling disconnected, cranky, and stubborn, it is very likely that your Heart chakra needs some attention.
The Heart chakra is also known as Anahata in Sanskrit, meaning “unstruck, unhurt, and unbeaten.” Located in the center of the chest, this chakra rules our emotions, feelings of love, and compassion.
When the Heart chakra is flowing smoothly, Taurus will feel gentle, kind, generous, and relaxed. This chakra encourages deep connection and intimacy with loved ones, and it enhances the natural sensuality of the Taurus.
On the other hand, when this chakra is unbalanced, blocked, or overactive, you’ll feel irritated, impatient, and inflexible.
How to Balance the Heart Chakra
The Heart chakra is the fourth of the seven major chakras. Balancing this chakra will allow you to embrace your natural sense of compassion, love, and connection.
Heart Chakra Crystals
Crystal healing is beneficial for many ailments in life, including blocked chakras.
- Rose quartz is connected to the Heart chakra and has powerful healing properties. This stone encourages confidence and self-love, as well as compassion for others. This crystal also works to heal existing emotional wounds, allowing you to move on from pain and hurt.
- Malachite is a balancing stone that heals the Heart chakra. This stone helps you feel more grateful, while simultaneously attracting more abundance and love into your life. Malachite absorbs negative energy and helps emotions rise to the surface, allowing you to acknowledge them and let them go.
- Amazonite is another powerful Heart chakra stone that brings peace and calm during moments of stress. This crystal has anxiety-reducing properties that help you relax, sending harmonizing energy to the Heart chakra.
- Clear quartz is a great stone to use when working with any chakra. Known as the master healer, this stone sends healing energy throughout the body, eliminating negativity.
Working with crystals can be as simple or complex as you want it to be. You can place crystals in your workspace or meditation room, or even in your pocket. You can also place a crystal in a glass of drinking water for 30 minutes to create a healing elixir. Or, try holding a crystal in your left hand while meditating or practicing your chakra-balancing visualizations.

In Living Color
Each of the seven major chakras is associated with a color of the rainbow, with the beautiful hues of green representing the Heart chakra.
Surrounding yourself with this color is an easy way to send healing energy to this chakra. Try going for a walk through the woods or simply spending time near the greenery in your own yard. You can paint a picture of an emerald forest or incorporate more seafoam shades into your wardrobe.
Green is not only an easy color to find in our food pyramid, it’s often the healthiest option.
When you’re trying to open your Heart chakra, include as many green foods into your diet as possible. Spinach, broccoli, green peppers, kale, spirulina, and asparagus are all excellent options that connect to this chakra.
Meditation is one of the best ways to release negative energy from the body, which is often the cause of a blocked or overactive chakra. Visual meditation is especially useful for balancing the chakras. Close your eyes, focus on the Heart chakra, and visualize a beam of healing green light circling in the center of your chest. Breathe deeply and imagine the light spreading throughout your body.
Yoga is another great way to balance the chakras, as it synchronizes the body and the mind. Wheel pose, bridge pose, and upward facing dog are especially healing to the Heart chakra.
Positive affirmations and mantras are excellent for balancing the chakras. Repeating something as simple as, “My Heart chakra is open and flowing,” can be beneficial for chakra healing.
Going with that Taurus Flow
When you heal your power chakra, the Heart chakra, you unleash everything about your personality that radiates with love and light. Once your Heart chakra is open, you’ll be able to follow your own peaceful, sensible flow and embrace your sensual Taurus nature.
Maintain Heart chakra health to amplify the most attractive parts of your personality to manifest the love and relationships you’ve always wanted.
