Taurus decan 1 are ruled by Mercury. These people are gifted orators and fight their battles with words. They are supreme propagandists. For them the pen really is mightier than the sword. Mercurial bulls love to learn and are great conversationalists. Talking and eating at the same time is their unique talent. They are useful at dinner parties, since they bring the best wine and fill in awkward silences. Too much of the fine wine though can turn them into ranting bull who never leaves. Very hard to move them once they get comfortable and fixed into a juicy topic. Birthdays April 20 – 30.
Taurus decan 2 are ruled by the Moon. These bulls are tenacious and ambitious; they rise to the top through sheer determination, patience and stamina. Taurus decan 2 is mild mannered, an ace seducer and extremely persuasive. Taurus rules the throat so these folk can be powerful orators or singers. Their speech is a potent tool for propaganda and spin-doctoring. Being ruled by the Moon does make them popular, seeming to be the father or mother of the people. Politically these people give you the feeling they will take care of business and your life is safe in their responsible hands. Birthdays May 1 to May 10.
Taurus decan 3 are ruled by Saturn. It is appropriate that the dark lord of time Saturn rules this decan since it houses the infamous star Algol. This part of Taurus houses bohemians and temperamental, artistic types. These bovines are probably less set in their ways than the classic Taurus because of the influence of our dashing hero Perseus. They can be daring, but are still very much fixed in their determination to pursue their dream. Taurus decan 3 are extremely chivalrous, they have impeccable manners and a lot of class. They have great taste and appreciation of the aesthetic, managing to dress like a lord even if they can only afford to shop in charity shops. Birthdays May 11 to 20.
