planetary ruler | element | modality

planetary  ruler  -  venus

each sign is ruled by a planet. and the planets in your chart are functions and forces within you.

venus symbolizes beauty, love, pleasure and your relationship with yourself and others.  venus represents the yin, the feminine and relates to the psychology of listening.  in the natal chart, venus indicates the types of relationships you value and attract, how you create balance and harmony in everything and anything you do (relationships, your home, and environment.) venus also influences the type of relaxation and pleasure you seek and enjoy.

venus rules 2 signs: taurus + libra.  taurus (the yin or inner expression/side of venus) represents your essential needs and values.  it embodies your sensual nature, self worth and assets (both inner and outer).   on the other hand, libra, connects you to the "other"and how you relate to others.

element  -  earth

the earth element is yin in nature, meaning its expression is inward; energy moving toward its center.

earth energy embodies the grounded energy of creativity, practicality and resilience. it's a fertile + passive energy that relates to the world on a physical level.  physical/body needs are important as is material security.  pragmatic routines + sensuality energizes earth signs and too much movement, sudden change + an emphasis on emotions can deplete it.

taurus represents earth energy that is natural, fertile and lush.

 modality  -  fixed

the modality of a sign describes how that sign moves through the world.

fixed signs give value, meaning and purpose to the cardinal signs that precede them on the zodiac wheel.  so, taurus, gives value and meaning to aries' actions. fixed signs have an affinity for the planning and building phase of creative projects.  they value reliability, consistency, predictability and stamina.  too much change throws them off.  fixed signs tend to be focused, loyal, stable, predictable and consistent but they can also be stubborn and resistant to change.

to establish predictability
in their lives
the earthly, creature comforts in life
to find comfort
in the every day chores.
material safety, security and stability
to discover
their inner and outer resources and assets.
a sense of beauty in life,
routine, simplicity, building, touch, sensual pleasure, good food, good smells, beauty and music.
a sensually oriented and fulfilling life.  the good life.  
strong survival needs can lead taurus to over-accumulate possessions
like money, cars, fancy homes . . . 
to enjoy the more sensual side of life.
to indulge in the comforts of all 5 senses - the touch of human skin, the taste of fine food and drink, the finer scents in daily work, the sight of a beautiful person or scene, the sound of music.
to withdraw into themselves to develop their own value systems.
how to keep your
inner taurus grounded
reconnect to the energies of the earth and the nature of the five senses.
discover yourself as your greatest resource. 
healthy boundaries.
when taurus energy is out of balance, it can create physical issues in the throat, neck, cervical spine, inner ears or thyroid.

i have.
i create self-reliance with every metamorphosis, enjoying the sensual world along the way.
the river of change is leading me to fertile ground.
i find peace and abundance by discovering my true potential.
i recognize and am able to let go of old, stuck patterns.
i am learning something new from every experience.

how can i engage with more of my senses and find greater beauty in my daily affairs?
what are my values?
what are my essential needs?
what would i sacrifice for survival?
what helps me feel grounded and centered?
what do i need to feel more stable and secure?
what am i willing to face and resolve so i can move forward?
what boundaries do i need to set in order to bloom more fully?
where am i overdoing or underdoing my taurus energy?
