The decans above are as accurate as they can be within a ten degree orb. But for a detailed exploration of your birthchart please refer to the READINGS page.

NOTE: I started off using the ancient Chaldean rulers of the decanates, but will be adding in fresh material relating to the triplicity rulers in 2015. Click on the links above for a more detailed interpretation of each decan using the fixed stars and celebrity examples. You can also apply the decan character traits to your Ascendant or Moon using these zodiac positions:  Taurus Decan 1 0° – 10°Taurus Decan 2 10° – 20° and Taurus Decan 3 20° – 30°.

    • Hi, Yota!

      My Sun is at 9 Taurus, Mercury at 18 Taurus. I see Taurus as a sign that has to combine Venutian creativity and friendship with physical strength. I like nothing better than building and doing. I even like adding fussy little icing flowers to a friend’s birthday cupcakes.

      But we Taureans don’t like anyone getting near our turf, and react with powerful anger when it happens. So we might leave our cupcakes on our friends’ doorsteps without a card, and then feel completely unappreciated. We have to learn how to share our creations sociably, or we become trapped and despairing inside our thick, material hides.

      So we aren’t usually dangerous at all. In fact, we’re just praying that we won’t mess up, or hurt someone. I like to think that Taurus, at its best, is helping to build God’s Temple. It’s just that people who disturb God’s peace will upset us sometimes…
