You get me Taurus, you really get me
As a Scorpio, I find Taureans fascinating because they understand fundamental parts of my nature like no other astrological sign. Not just the overtalked sex thing (le sigh), but loyalty, passion, creativity, and did I mention loyalty. So this was fun to write and discover how we are similar and how we are different. I absolutely kept a soul sister in mind because she embodies that blend of creativity, routine, and I will cut you if you hurt my friends qualities that make Taureans rockstars.
Key Oil: Eucalyptus
Oil Blend: lemon, lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus
The second house sign of the zodiac is Taurus, the Bull. Taurus is considered a fixed earth sign, ruled by Venus. Those born under a fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) find it very difficult to change. Earth signs are grounded, practical and unchanging. Now add the energy of the Bull, characterized as stubborn, plodding and bull-headed. Poor Taureans, being both fixed and earth, they are the most unmovable, stuck signs in the zodiac, with a stubborn will and resistant nature. Luckily, being ruled by Venus, they also have a gentle, sensitive side; a real saving grace. They do not like change. Their inflexible disposition translates to stiffness in the rest of the body, too.
Taurian people are known for being loyal homebodies who are often reliable, determined, and practical with a love of stability. Being ruled by Venus gives this sign the advantage of handling difficult situations in a dignified way and the ability to see the beauty in the world around them.
Taureans have a gift for beauty, thanks to their Venusian natures. They enjoy pleasure in all aspects of their life, whether it is fine wine, good food, art, music or a beautiful garden. They need a salubrious setting in order to feel at peace within themselves and with others and will take time and care to produce such an environment. Taureans seek harmony and sensuality and will enjoy both almost to excess. They are tactile people, loving delicious, tender, slow and affectionate touch. But Taureans are not all sweetness and light. When in their bullish nature they can be negative, lazy, obstinate, resistant to change and willful. They are capable of concentrating their entire being on a single goal, and working persistently toward that purpose, to the exclusion of other’s reason or suggestions. They have unyielding determination, which makes them hard workers and practical, reliable colleagues, but also can make them appear obdurate and inflexible.
Those born under the Taurus sign are encouraged to utilize the benefits of Eucalyptus because Taurians are often riddled with problems in the throat, neck and thyroid. In most cases, this leads to sore throats, stiff neck muscles and reoccurring colds. Eucalyptus oil assists in the healing of sore throats and is often used in neck massages to release tension, allowing the Taurus-born person to handle difficult situations in a dignified way and enjoy feeling grounded and steady. Taureans tend to carry much of their stress and tension in their shoulders and neck. They are prone to sore throats, earaches, headaches and stiff necks. They carry their emotions in this upper torso region, feeling that they have to shoulder responsibility, carry other people’s emotional loads, be burdened by the woes of the world, duck to avoid confrontation and do backbends for others. All these contortions, brought on by the need to please others, soothe over situations and take away other’s pain, put a load on the poor bull’s upper body.
Essential oils that support their sensual natures are jasmine, neroli, patchouli, rose, sandalwood, ylang ylang, clary sage and black pepper.
Oils that can help the bull easy back from their intractable, headstrong ways are coriander, lemon, peppermint, pine, chamomile, helichrysum, marjoram, neroli, lavender and vetiver.
Oils that alleviate aching muscles and stiffness are eucalyptus, ginger, juniper berry, lavender, lemon, black pepper, chamomile, rosemary and sage.
Oils that aid in relieving the bull’s headaches are jasmine, eucalyptus, peppermint, lavender, rosemary, juniper, melissa, rose, clary sage and lemon.
