When a person has his natal Sun in Taurus, it means that he belongs to the zodiac sign of Taurus. Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac, and has beneficial Venus as its ruling planet. The period of Taurus starts on the 21st of April and lasts until the 21st of May. Slight differences in the exact hours can occur because we should not forget that every fourth year has one day more than the others.
The Sun is the brightest object in the sky, the life-giving star of our Solar System, and also the most important celestial body in astrology. Also called Sol, the Sun is impersonated by the ancient Greek goddess Helios. Life on earth is literally empowered by the Sun’s energy, with it having an effect on all the biorhythms of live organisms. Astrologically, its influences are so important that most people only know the sign where their Sun is placed in, referring to it just as “their sign”.
The Sun rules our vitality and self-perception, making any house it is placed in the epicenter of our life. It has a strong masculine energy, and in the natal chart depicts our father. In addition, it can also show relations with the male gender or generally people who become a father figure for us. In addition, the Sun is strongly connected with activity and self-confidence, and rules our personality and ego. When it is located in Taurus, the mellow and feminine energies of Venus blend with the ones of the Sun. The native will therefore perceive his reality through a Venusian filter, and they realm is based on prosperity and fertility. Thus, Taurus people will be more attracted to wealth and luxury, focusing on expanding their belongings and obtaining more possessions. They will be persistent and work a lot to achieve their goals, and they adore rewards that are material or at least somehow visible. Taurus Sun people have a strong need to feed their self-confidence through what they own – and here we are not only talking about material goods.
Taureans tend to be possessive, even about the people they have around them, and about many other things that are not in the material sphere too. Thus, we can not say that people with their Sun in Taurus have a tendency towards materialism – even though materialistic people may have their Venus strong by placement in their chart. People who have their Sun in Taurus are robust and focused, and have a slower but more stable pace of progress.
Taurus is an Earth sign, and probably the one most connected to agriculture and nature. This is not a surprise, as April and May are the months where the nature flourishes and the fields need the most work in order to have good crops. As a pattern, Taurus people have received this human biorhythm and use it in every aspect of their life. They may need to dedicate a lot of time and energy towards a certain goal and wait for the results to fruit. Yet, afterward, they can enjoy the sweet fruits of success, in a deeper way than other signs can perceive.
Sun in Taurus people like to see goods multiply. No matter if this will be the crops in their field, money in their bank account, their friends or something else, this is the way they understand progress. This is why they can get easier dissatisfied when obstacles come into their life and a strong reason for them to create comfort zones. Taurus people will save up money for the “black days”, and use security pillows in all the life areas where they can be applied. Stability is something they yearn for so that they can be happy, and this is a wise strategy to keep fluctuations low.
All of the above are strongly connected with the natural realm of Taurus, which is the 2nd house. For achieving their prosperity, they will depend on realism more than on luck, while also can be very good organizers and tacticians. They are rather resistant to change, no matter if it is for better or for worse. Taurus Sun people will prefer to stick to their slow and secure progress rather than risking quicker achievement with possibilities of failures.
Venus, the ruling planet of Taurus, will make such natives fond of luxury and wellness. They appreciate beauty very much, which is the direct effect of Venus on their Sun. People with their Sun in Taurus have more tendencies to accumulate beautiful objects than other people, while also will like beauty in people and places. They can be very fascinated by feelings of admiration that objects, people or places can invoke in them. Then, a thirst of making those things their possessions usually starts, which ends up a beautiful quest or conquer. Also, sensuality is another life area that they develop strongly. A Taurus Sun will simply adore to give to his body and mind different types of hedonisms – no matter if it is food, eroticism, body treatments or something else. In addition, Venus will gift them with a charismatic charm, and a lot of Taurus women will even physically have the body stereotype of the Greek Goddess Aphrodite. Taurus tends to give beautiful curves, sweet face and juicy breasts – which obviously is also connected with the archetype of the feeder and fertility. On the other hand, some extra weight is not a rare phenomenon.
The main disadvantage of Sun in Taurus people is being stubborn. Of course, no one can judge them for being what they are – it is quite normal for a fixed sign to have this attribute. Taurus people have this internal need to keep things as they are. Yet, it can delay their own development, or make them lose chances that may not appear later.
Whoever has natal Sun in Taurus and ill-aspected may like hedonism so much that they can become lazy. Laziness is usually a product of the two most benefic planets, Venus and Jupiter. So, people who are connected to signs ruled by these planets are also more likely to develop the disadvantages of those two planets. Taurus Sun people are a little bit more prone to problems of the throat, the neck, and the thyroid gland. The sign of Taurus rules the whole area between the head and the main body, so when a Taurus has his Sun afflicted by natal placement or transit, those may suffer. Naturally, typical Taurus careers are connected with finances, production, and nature. In addition, Taurus can excel in all fields that Venus rules, which involve art, beauty, wellness, and luxury.
The Sun in our charts rules our own father. Thus, in case it is in Taurus, it will give a Venusian type of father. There is a high possibility that the father is occupied in one of these professions. He usually is the stable tree on which the family depends on, the giver and the feeder. He can also be Taurus, or at least have a lot of planets in Taurus or Venus strong by placement and aspects. With good aspects to the Sun, the native regards his father as a strong paradigm of stability, a rock to which he can hang on. An adversely aspected Sun may indicate that the father is a materialistic person, more concentrated on obtaining belongings than seeing the big picture of life.
