Astrology Sign of Taurus

Ruling Planet – Venus

Corresponding House – 2nd House

Crystals – Citrine, Emerald, Kyanite & Aquamarine

Affirmation – “My life is valuable and worthy, not because of outside possessions or circumstances, but because I am a child of God.”

Personality Traits – Taurus sometimes gets a bad rap for being too focused on the material, but the lesson for Taurus is to experience a relationship with material objects, and yet to not define their own vision of themselves by the things (or lack of things) that surround them. Because of this, individuals with a great deal of Taurus energy can project how they feel about themselves onto their possessions. This can also create a tendency to feel unrecognized if someone does not comment on their appearance, house, car or whatever is important to them.

In a Relationship – Taurus will be picky about their own appearance and even your appearance as well. It is not as if they view you as a possession, but they do consider everything around them to be a refection of them, and that does include your appearance. Taurus would rather spend money on saving up to have “nice things” then to purchase something that will do in a pinch. For example, having 2 pairs of high quality socks will be more important to them than 20 pairs of socks from a discount store. This can be a point for great dissension within a relationship if Taurus’s partner does not understand why this viewpoint is important to them.

Spiritual Health – Taurus will want Spirit to “prove themselves” in some way when it comes to Spirit allowing and assisting them with their life. This “proof” will be in whatever form Taurus deems necessary for the moment. Taurus may try different beliefs over time, but when they value a specific belief system, they will stick with it, and even defend it quite vehemently.

Emotional Health – It will be very helpful for Taurus to balance talking with taking action. If one of these becomes out of balance, they can tend to feel burnt out. Taurus would also benefit from belonging to a group that has passion for their interests, like a Classic Car Club, Art Gallery or whatever collectibles and keepsakes interest them.

Mental Health – Taurus can be a bit of a “Hope Junkie” where they live in the future, because “things will be better when I have this or that”. If Taurus can learn to appreciate their life in the now moment, they will find that they begin to experience more messages and synchronicities about allowing their goals to be accomplished. But, if they stay in that place of future thinking, they can lose a grip on being able to accurately assess their priorities.

Physical Health – Taurus should pay attention to digestion and food related conditions. Taurus can be prone to diabetes, liver dysfunction and stomach ulcers. This is because they can fill their life with food and other substances if they do not feel that their needs are being met in other ways. Taurus can also be susceptible to sore throats, and thyroid issues.

Relationship with Food – Taurus individuals tend to be brand devotees, at least until they find something better. The food they choose will be the highest measure of quality by their standards. It would be a rare occasion to see a Taurus buy the store brand of anything. Taurus also likes to eat trendy foods and you can find them at any popular food establishment, where they will probably know the wait staff, or at very least, the maitre-de.

Astrology Sign of Aries

Ruling Planet – Mars

Corresponding House – 1st House

Crystals – Tiger’s Eye, Aventurine, Diamond & Topaz

Affirmation – “I love myself just as I am. I accurately see myself as the Divine being I am and I no longer need to base this view of myself on the opinions of others.”

Personality Traits – Aries can be a bit of a drama king or queen. They want to be surrounded by people who can listen to their problems and cheer for them in their corner. Because of this, there is a inner drive to get as many people involved in what’s going on as they can; this is just their way of drumming up support. This happens because Aries is here to work on issues of self-worth and a big part of that lesson is learning that it comes from within. In order to learn that, it first must come through the lens of having many other mirrors around Aries to teach them about themselves. Aries has conquered this lesson when they learn that self-worth is absolute, and is not based on the attention or adoration of others.

In a Relationship – Aries can be fickle at first. They have a mental list of traits that they seek in a partner and if you don’t measure up right away (or if Aries can’t get you to conform to those standards) they are not going to stick around for very long. But, if the Aries has done the self-healing lessons of this sign, then they will become a true reflection of their partner and be in that relationship to assist their partner in learning the lessons that Aries has just mastered. A relationship with Aries can have highs and lows, but they will always support you as long as that support is returned.

Spiritual Health – Aries most likely will not delve wholeheartedly into any one spiritual practice, unless it also supports them on a social level. Aries needs a more active spiritual practice but does well with yoga, walking meditations, group dynamics and other supportive environments.

Emotional Health – Aries likes to feel recognized, but may have a different standard of what this means than other signs in the Zodiac. The challenge for Aries is not only to communicate about this, but also to understand that others need to be recognized in that same way as well.

Mental Health – Aries loves to have a lot of things going on at any one time. This provides them with a sense of fulfillment and purpose. If they do not find things to do, or do not have healthy outlets for this high energy, they can develop ADD, ADHD, OCD or panic disorders.

Physical Health – Aries individuals usually appear quite beautiful to others, but they do not feel that beauty within themselves. Aries will be the first sign of the Zodiac to line up for plastic surgery, anti-aging remedies, body creams, lotions, potions or anything labels as a “beauty enhancer.” They also have to be careful that if they do not look at the underlying emotions related to appreciating themselves and their beauty (both internally and externally), that they can become very out of touch with the true vision of themselves and can develop body dysmorphic disorder, eating disorders and skin problems.

Relationship with Food – Aries generally has no food preferences, as long as they can be involved in the process of bringing the food to the table. This could be by hosting the party, picking out the restaurant or contributing to the recipe in some way. Food, like anything else, can become an extension of the Aries individual. The challenge here for Aries is to not view another’s reaction to food (or anything else) as a reflection of how this person feels toward the Aries individual.
