It is of course far too simplistic to assert that we are all typical of our sun signs. Logic implies that we are all rather complex, with our own particular strengths and weaknesses.
However, an individual birth chart analysis, where many other factors as assessed, can help to give a clearer picture of what we are made of, astrologically — and even throw light upon which health issues may affect us through our lives.
Nevertheless, the sun’s position by sign will always be a key factor and general indicator of our health.
Strong Supporting Role
Taurus lies in second place in the zodiac, the fixed earth sign and traditionally rules the neck, throat and thyroid gland. It’s sometimes easy to forget that the neck bears the weight of the head, yet correlates with the essential Taurus function of being supportive, dependable, even stubborn.
Strongly Taurean individuals are said to be prone to problems in the neck region. Taurus is ruled by Venus and this sign often produces excellent singers — which inevitably leads to problems with the throat, too.
Gardening for Peace
Taurus also rules the thyroid gland, which if low functioning through a lack of the thyroid hormone, can lead to slowness, weight gain, tiredness and depression. Sometimes there is too much hormone produced, which leads to hyperactivity. A healthy thyroid gland is clearly very important for our general well being.
Because Taurus is fixed earth, he or she likes security, stability and peaceful surroundings. Perhaps for this reason, Taurus loves gardens and gardening, generally a very calming pursuit which can work wonders for maintaining mental health.
Astrology is also about polarities, meaning the opposite sign can produce a reflex action in terms of health. The opposite sign to Taurus is Scorpio, which rules the genital and lower bowel region, which are also said to be potentially vulnerable areas for they typical Taurus native.
It is interesting to note that at the same time a male reaches puberty, his voice also becomes that of a man — Taurus/Scorpio polarity.
- Naturally, it is always a good time to look after ourselves, mentally and physically, though especially during these trying times.
