Taurus Ascendant

Every Taurus Rising is a sensualist at heart. Many are destined for great wealth though not so many are ever famous.

First of all, your Soul Mates… in ancient astrology, they went much more by Rising Signs. Others with the same Rising Sign constituted your cohort or traveling companions in life.

Those with Taurus Rising include Che Guevara, Zinedine Zidane, David Beckham, Charles Manson, Michael Jordan, Rita Hayworth, Vivien Leigh, Serena Williams, Dodi Al-Fayed, George Washington, Humphrey Bogart, Mia Farrow, Gary Cooper, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Liza Minnelli, David Letterman, George Lucas, Salman Rushdie, Jerry Seinfeld, Queen Latifah, Christian Barnard, Laura Bush, the Dionne Quintuplets, Joan Sutherland, Elle MacPherson, Billy Crystal, Amelia Earhart, Mae West, Bobby Kennedy, Peter O’Toole, Muktananda, Frederick the Great of Prussia, Omar Khayyam, Ho Chi Minh, Lorenzo de Medici, Buster Keaton, Slobodan Milosevic, Little Richard, Wilt Chamberlain, Shelley, William Randolph Hearst, Angela Davis, Wyatt Earp, Herbert Hoover, Mary Queen of Scots, Rodney King, Moshe Dayan, Tom Rather, Villa Lobos and Robert Frost.

What matters to Taurus Rising is becoming useful with inner resources so you can follow through and give generously to others of substance or material things. You always know what those you love need.

Your Ascendant tells you what experiences in life to choose in order to grow. Choose opportunities to develop your inner resources and pick situations where perseverance is going to pay off. Think about Wilt Chamberlain, Michael Jordan and Becks. Don’t be shy about accumulating wealth. Like William Randolph Hearst and La Cuesta Encantada, his “castle” near San Simeon, Ca., Leo rules your 4th house so you really come into your own when you get the house of your dreams.

If used negatively, Taurus Rising can be greedy, jealous, possessive, slothful and sybaritic. They may base their sense of security on comparing how much money they have against everyone else and I am convinced some of you really think you can own another person. I know you have little interest and a hard go of it in keeping up with the times but slavery was abolished years ago, ok?

It’s critical to Taurus Rising to understand the difference between stubbornness and perseverance, accumulation of wealth and greed, loving or marrying someone and possessing them and contentment versus atrophy.

Depending on the sign and house of your Sun, you must pull these positive experiences towards you in order to grow. Your gentle nature likes to find the natural flow wherever you are and the state of innocence permitting a recreation of the Garden of Eden,

You also want to share energy and integrate with others so you will have enough energy to regenerate.

When centered and in touch, Taurus Rising personifies usefulness, conscious sharing and love of Mother Earth.

Your Rising Sign also describes your physical appearance. Taurus Rising often have big necks and are marked by a very special characteristic — the blush. Very sexy!
