Taurus – Earth
Practical and independent, as your birthday shows, you are an ambitious and broad-minded individual with a fine mind. Preferring to keep busy, you have vitality and are able to make quick decisions. A tendency to disappointment or frustration may sometimes sap you of your positivity, so having a definite goal or worthy cause is vital.
With the influence of your Sun in the Virgo decanate of Taurus, you are articulate and resourceful and often intellectually endowed. This also suggests a skill with criticism or an ability to deal with detailed, technical, or research work. The practical emphasis of this combination also points to a natural business sense or a capacity for analyzing monetary situations.
Usually you prefer to be given a free hand to make all your own decisions, and you dislike taking orders from others. Your ability to inspire people with your great plans and enthusiasm indicates that you have the potential to organize new and exciting ventures. However, by becoming willful and stubborn, you may lose the admiration you desire and become insecure. Fortunately, you also possess a wonderful sense of humor that can prevent you from becoming too self-obsessed or compulsive.
Around the age of eleven, when your progressed Sun moves into Gemini, you are likely to experience some changes and find new interests. Over the next thirty years, study and relating to others will become more important to you. There is another turning point at the age of forty-one, when your progressed Sun moves into Cancer. This is liable to increase your sensitivity, and you may place more emphasis on family and a secure home base. From the age of seventy-one, when your progressed Sun enters Leo, you become stronger and more confident in your self-expression.
Although you often seem unemotional, underneath you have a caring and kind nature. You are happy in the company of those with whom you share some type of intellectual activity. Occasionally you may become too serious and need to develop a more impersonal or detached view. As a good communicator, you get along with most people and can mix well with different groups. Hidden insecurity, however, can be expressed in a negative way by argumentativeness or overindulgence. Partnerships can be especially beneficial for you if there is equal give and take.
