Essential Oils for Your Astrological Sign: Taurus
Taurus season is a time to stabilize ourselves as we settle into the full swing of spring. Taurus is characterized by the bull, a sign of strength and steadiness as well as luxury and enjoyment. As our surroundings are changing and developing with new life and growth, it is a perfect time to find balance and enjoyment in our lives.
Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac and provides a stark contrast to the fiery Aries that it follows. Being both a fixed and earth sign, Taurus is very unmoving and unchanging. This means that they are grounded in the real world and often methodical in the way they do things. Taureans inner bullish nature can also lead them to be willful, negative, and resistant to change. They are goal oriented and highly focused which can lead them to concentrate so deeply on a task or project that it may lead them to exclude others' help or suggestions. Those with Taurus placement have unyielding determination and stand strongly behind their opinions and beliefs. This means they are unlikely to be swayed about things they feel strongly about but it can also make them deeply headstrong and obstinate. Being ruled by Venus gives Taurus a gentle and loving side to balance out their stubborn, bullish nature. People with Taurus placement love to indulge in the pleasures and beauty of life. Earth signs are rooted in the physicality of the world and the body and Taurus especially values the enjoyment of pleasurable experiences in all aspects of life. Taureans feel and enjoy the luxuries of living in the physical world more deeply than others and tend to indulge more as well. Whether it be fine foods, a long nap, or a long stroll through a spring garden, Taurus finds the beauty and harmony in treating oneself well.
