Taurus is sensual, indulgent, grounded, and secure, and is represented by the astrological bull.

Taurus Zodiac Sign
Taurus is the second zodiac sign. It comes after fiery Aries, which is impatient and impulsive, so Taurus has learned how to slow things down and take a beat. It comes before Airy Gemini, the sign of the mind, so Taurus is more focused on the body, hence being so sensual.
And with Venus being the ruling planet for Taurus, this brings out the sensuality.
As an Earth sign, Taurus is practical, reliable, stable, and focused. As a Fixed sign, this doubles down on that energy, and Taurus can be the most grounded of the signs. When Taurus isn’t grounded, this generally leads down some bad roads.
Grounding is ultra-important for this sign!
Being the astrological bull, Taurus can be focused. It can take a little while to get going, but once Taurus does, it sees things through to the end. It keeps going, and very little can deter Taurus. This can lead to some stubbornness at times, but it does make Taurus formidable.

The Impact of Taurus Season
With the Sun moving into Taurus, this begins Taurus season, which lasts for about a month.
During Taurus season, we’re all taking our time, moving at a slower pace, and once we make a decision or get started with an action, we see it through. We firmly believe in our choices and actions and can keep going no matter what.
It’s a good time to get more grounded, especially if Aries season was frazzling and maddening. We can get more in tune with our bodies, and develop better confidence by listening more to ourselves. We can engage with the physical world in a tangible way, and feel more connected to the moment, the present, the here, and now.
When the Sun is moving through Taurus, this will impact the Taurus parts of your natal chart. The Sun lines up with them at some point during Taurus season, and you can really channel that inner Bull!
Taurus in the Birth Chart: Planets
So, where do you find your inner bull? The first and most obvious place to find Taurus in your birth chart is if you have any of your planets in Taurus.
Sun, Moon & Rising in Taurus
A Taurus Sun, Taurus Moon, or Taurus Rising is going to manifest the bull energy strongest and most obviously because the Sun governs your true self, the Moon governs your emotional self, and the Rising governs your outer self.
You connect deeply with the bull when you’re a Taurus Sun, you bring out your inner bull when emotional if you’re a Taurus Moon, and you show your bull externally when you’re a Taurus Rising.
Mercury in Taurus
If you have a Taurus Mercury, your inner bull comes out when expressing yourself and communicating.
You may be someone who takes a while to make decisions and put together plans, but you can get on a roll once you move forward. You just don’t want to be in any rush, and can push back against anyone who tries to rush you.
Venus in Taurus
If you have a Taurus Venus, your inner bull comes out in relationships and dealings with others.
You may be slow to start a new relationship or partnership, but once you commit yourself, you’re in completely. You can be surprisingly passionate and loyal in romantic relationships.
Mars in Taurus
If you have a Taurus Mars, your inner bull comes out when you’re pursuing something.
Mars is the planet of energy and drive, the one that takes initiative, so you may be slow to start new projects and ventures. Once you get started, you’re almost impossible to stop, and this is one of the more formidable positions to find Taurus.
Jupiter in Taurus
If you have a Taurus Jupiter, your inner bull comes out when expanding your life and choosing opportunities.
You can take time to make a choice and to make expansion start, but can see them through once you do. You may focus on practical opportunities, or ones that provide stability and security, and can expand your life in quieter ways that don’t disrupt too much.
Saturn in Taurus
If you have a Taurus Saturn, you may struggle more with embracing your inner bull than most of us.
Saturn restricts and limits, and there may be some lessons you have to learn before you can use your Bull energy. Once you do learn the lessons or overcome obstacles associated with Taurus, you can find great strength in your ability to be practical, focused, and disciplined.
Uranus in Taurus
Only older folks at the moment have Uranus in Taurus (we’re talking people born in the mid-1930s to the early 1940s). You’re someone who knows how to merge the practical with the unconventional and can push for your way like a bull to make radical change happen.
Neptune & Pluto in Taurus
Neptune and Pluto were last in Taurus in the 1800s, so I don’t think there’s anyone alive who has these positions! If you did, you’d be a bull spiritually with Neptune and a powerfully transforming Bull with Pluto.
Chiron in Taurus
If you have a Taurus Chiron, you can take your time when it comes to your approach to healing and dealing with emotional issues but can see it through once you do start and accomplish far more healing and growth than the rest of us. You can focus on healing that helps you feel confident, stable, and secure, and the more grounded you are, the more you can grow.
Now remember, as the Sun moves through Taurus, it links up with each of these positions and lights up the energy for you. Your attention is brought to the planet and to the energy of that planet, and you can feel the Bull energy stronger.
Make use of it!
Taurus in the Birth Chart: Houses
Let’s say you have no planets in Taurus. That means your inner bull is found through your astrological houses!
One of your natal houses should fall in Taurus (depending on the house system, some may have more than one; and some may have none, in which case look to the house that falls in Aries since that means Taurus is inside that house).
