All About Taurus traits

The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decan’s energy since no planets will colour its expression. So the Taurus traits in the general section (of the Taurus decans) will speak for the Taurus rising meaning as there is no planetary filter. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so the influences in the general section will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others.


Taurus Traits by Rising Sign Decan

Taurus Decan 1 from 0º to 10º Taurus. The raging and ravenous mouth behaviour that features in this decan is undoubtedly passionate. At the very basic level a superb kisser, when they stop talking that is.. and, I would imagine anything *ahem* oral is well starred.

Interestingly Bernadette Brady gives the example of Poppy King the cosmetic entrepreneur whose business grew from her idea of finding a better lipstick. Queen Cassiopeia was also punished for “mouthing off”. It seems there is a certain amount of punishment here for just being too beautiful or too clever or both. 

Taurus Decan 2 from 10º to 20º Taurus.  It will be hard for these folk not to play the smothering parent with their beloved. In my research I found many who had been touched by the unfortunate or even so-called ‘evil’ aspects of this decan. There may be some inherited ancestral karma. The subject can take on too much of their partner’s burdens and woes. If they absorb too much of other peoples negativity they can end up attracting the misfortune associated with the stars here.

Taurus Decan 3 from 20º to 30º Taurus. The lover will provide an inspiring muse for these artistic bulls. They want a love that transforms their life, truly madly and deeply just like the film (Sometimes they can fall in love with an actual ghost.) Taurus 3 rising is not afraid to jump into the most unsuitable relationship because they figure that a bit of suffering is good for the soul. For them, it doesn’t feel like true love unless your heart is bleeding all over the kitchen floor. It doesn’t matter how many times these folk are wounded in love affairs, they get up again and again and again.
