Marching forward in the parade of zodiac signs, the very physical, practical, and strong-willed sign of Taurus is next on my agenda.
Taurus is the celestial landlord of the second house of the zodiac which is where everything of physical value resides. Physical value includes, money, resources, possessions as well as the physical body which is the vehicle we must use to accommodate our desires. Venus, whose reputation for love, beauty and romance is also legendary for conferring physical beauty to the fortunate individuals born under this sign. Think Audrey Hepburn or the lovely Andie MacDowell. Even the most fragile looking of this sign have one thing in common…their strength. I’ve yet to meet a man or woman young or old born under this sign who couldn’t beat an opponent in an arm wrestle.
Is it any wonder that women and men of outstanding beauty gain an inordinate amount of financial gain for their physical appearance? This doesn’t have to mean physical beauty in the in the typical sense. It also means that a Taurus, even one born without extraordinary good looks, has an inborn ability and understanding of how to make money. Charm is always at their disposal; giving them the ability to get them what they want.
Like the other three fixed signs of the zodiac, bulls have a hard time deviating from any activity that is working for them, but none more than Taurus. “If it ain’t broke. Don’t fix it” should be the official Taurus mantra. Make no mistake about it, even the most unpredictable Taurus likes to stick with a routine. An unpredictable Taurus will always do the unpredictable…over and over again, so no matter how innovative they think they are, astute individuals will always be able to anticipate their crazy moves. Sadam Hussein was an excellent example of an unpredictable/predictable Taurus. I don’t think anyone would disagree with my assessment that he was a paranoid nut case too. (Taureans do have a tendency to be paranoid in case you didn’t know.)
So given the stereotypical activities and interests of this sign such as, banking, accounting, yoga, running, Tai chi, massage, hiking, biking, and tennis, just to name a few, please reference Miss Alba’s extraordinary financial success as a lifestyle products mogul. The keyword for Taurus is “safe.” They are into safety and security in all that they do. Is it any wonder that her Honest Company promotes non-toxic products for consumers. Baby products, personal care, and cosmetics are just a few of the items she is successfully making available to her customers so that they can protect themselves from the countless toxic ingredients that have insinuated themselves into our lives.
So being ruled by the planet Venus, its no surprise that Miss Alba chose a business that promotes and offers toxic free cosmetics and lots of other lotions and potions for the body. Oh, yeah, did I mention how much the second sign of the zodiac loves massages? She certainly is representative of a Taurus who is true to her sign. In astrology that means she is a sign stereotype, which, I might add is not exactly a bad thing.
Stay tuned for Gemini.
