This sign of Taurus governs the neck and throat of the Grand Man, or Microcosm.
It is a fixed, nocturnal, feminine, vernal, earthy sign, and is the positive pole of the Earth Triplicity.
The higher attributes are secretion and will.
The Sun enters this sign
each year on or about April 21, and departs from the sign on or about May 21. The Sun on entering the sign should
be given six days before coming into full touch and action with the influence of the sign. A person born between
the dates of the 21st and 27th of April would not receive the full central results of the sign's individuality, as
he would be born when The Sun was on the edge of the sign. This is known as "The
Cusp." Its nature and impulses partake of the sign The Sun has just passed through or out from, and the
native will also partake of the attributes of the sign of the Zodiac in which The Moon is located at the time of birth.
This is a very hard sign to overcome.
Those born under it are fearless and kind, and very magnanimous when not
irritated. They are generous, and apt to load themselves with the burdens and sorrows of others. Money has no
special value in their minds except for the good it will do. They have no wish to hoard, and are always ready to
divide. They prefer to help with money rather than by the expenditure of time or sympathy. They have great power of
concentration, and make the best metaphysical healers. By the power of their will they can project their thought
to great distances and hit the mark. They are exceedingly fond of the good things of the earth, and like to spread
feasts for their friends.
These Taurus individuals are sometimes guided far too much by externalities and
appearances. Their whole physical nature seems to grow out of the five animal senses. However, when they
develop above the sensual appetites, they are most powerful mentally and spiritually, making apt writers, and
quick, brilliant speakers. They are very zealous and sanguine in any line of thought they may take
They often become leaders, and readily adapt themselves to the time and the
society which calls them into action. They can memorize with the greatest ease. When friendly, they are very
loyal, and remain so as long as they are permitted to rule and have their own way. When they become enemies they
are the most bitter and relentless of the whole twelve signs.
Almost all persons born under Taurus possess some kind of physical medium-ship,
and are quite apt to be found among Spiritualists who deal in phenomena. Their clairvoyant gifts are usually very
marked. They can even feel the minds of other people and know their thoughts.
Taurus rules the neck, and that part of the brain that governs the sex
principles. Those born under this sign may have full faces, wide noses and mouths, shining flesh inclined to
reddishness, large shoulders, and are generally of powerful build.
