Taurus - April 21 - May 21

No bull in the proverbial china shop
but of the astrological skies 
you’d ride bareback upon the animal
assured by its strength and muscular form 
Ruled by Venus and of the second house
A feminine introvert or negative sign

A lover of all things nature and natural
Earth, loyal and faithful but needs stability
Although stubborn enough to charge at one disturbing the peace
Fulfilling the senses with beauty
Neck and throat sensitive and strong (aim affection here!)
Homely content, liking the comforts of life

Attracted to material things in simplest form
although from senses – tactile or pleasing to eye
Naturally practical likes comfortable space for home and work
Food clothes music and linen of importance 
for ‘things’ are of value, money and those not materialistic 
Sensation more important than feelings and thought

A Taurean can appear boring to others
Practical and sensible in approach
Basing life on the real not imagined
Not willing to take unecessary risk
nor put foundations that are solid in jeopardy
Happy with stability and simplicity so long as functional

Not to be distracted and not exceptionally clever
You get to where you want to be through determination
Always needing the tools to get back to basics and build
A feminine introvert or negative sign
Life is good, ruled by Venus sensual and simple
In Venus Taurus is about physical and idealistic love, arts and beauty

Patient, reliable warmhearted and caring nature
One determined and persistant, a creative, placid creature
Needs watch health especially throat, repiratory, abscess and rheumatism
Stubborness and inflexibility can sometimes be issue
Possessive and relentlessness yet loving
Law abiding and somewhat hostile with change

Witty and practical, faithful and generous to friends
More than averagely loving and very self-conscious
Fixed in opinion down to experience and acceptable patterns
Steadfast, just and firm when faced with difficulty
These are not afraid of dirty hands nor shy of hard work
At best in positions of trust and responsibility

Strength is sensible outlook on life
Weakness of being unable to accept less than you can achieve
Seeing is believing
and because the feet are firmly on the ground
others will come to this sign for advice
as they plod along taking only what is needed to survive

    I hope you are much better now?? Hey, I got a MOON sign book and found, even though I am Virgo, my moon is in TAURUS. One's moon sign used to be considereed more important than the sun sign we use today!! So I am a double earth, Virgo/Taurus and proud of it!! I am so much like this description you gave here, but I like to think also "clever" Luv ya, andrea ps is it your sign?

    Goodness don't know however I missed this - I assume during one of my more major health problems... so sorry Andrea! In response, yes I land as a Taurean - not something I really pay much attention to really but was asked to write this and Gemini for a good artist friend of mine Maria Szollosi to go with her works produced at the time. An enjoyable challenge! xx

    This is an interesting piece though I have to admit I'm not into astrology. I really like the message in your last stanza. Thank you for sharing your poem with us and for your kind comment. Karen
