Ruling Planet: Venus/Aphrodite/Isis
The sign Taurus is ruled by Venus. Physically Taurus is related to the throat. Taurus is said to have a feminine nature and is, therefore, more passive and receptive in its energy expression. This is not “feminine” in the sense of gender, but feminine in the sense of night and day or positive and negative polar opposites.
Taurus is an Earth sign and as such is connected with fruitfulness, luxury indulgences, and stability. A planet placed in this sign will be a stabilizing influence and manifest its energy in a steadfast and determined manner.
Taurus is also a Fixed sign, and this means that once a course is embarked on, it is rarely deviated from. Maintenance and care of existing conditions over long periods of time, and a reluctance to initiate change are qualities of this sign.
SO BEWARE OF YOUR LACK OF CHANGE BULLS. IT COULD BE YOUR UNDOING!
Taurus is also connected with the resources of nature, and the whole issue of value and worth. This is their connection to the second house, which is also ruled by Venus.

By periodically cutting their strong attachments they can gain greater perspective. There is a talent for relaxation and enjoyment of sensory pleasures.
