Having a Taurus Ascendant makes Venus your ruling planet, the planetary archetype that steers the direction of your life. This signifies a life devoted to pleasure, embodiment and artistic pursuits.
From the outside, you come across as someone pleasant, well-mannered, nice to have around, who radiates stability. You tend to appear calm and collected, and this is a quality people tend to appreciate in you. A fixed Earth sign, Taurus is the voluptuous, receptive side of Venus, which means that you might feel especially inclined to bring these qualities to every space you enter, in addition to take pleasure in sharing these experiences with others. You’re probably considered captivating, talented in an artistic sense, and able to make the most of whatever resources are at your own disposal. Your peaceable Venusian charm is endearing and magnetic to those around you.
Taurus rising people have a love of good food and good company. Your Taurus qualities add a grounded nature to your outside behaviour, and you possess enough stamina and stubbornness to stabilize the energy of your Sun. Yet, you don’t mind putting in the necessary work to generate an income that enables you to afford what you want: comfort and security are high on your priority list. At the same time, you can be quite inflexible and hell bent on progress at your own pace (some would say stubborn). This is somehow the key to understand your interaction with the immediate environment and to those around you. The boundaries between you and the outside world are firm, steady and solid.
You may feel a strong affinity towards all that is organic and with the medicine of Nature. To you, connection with the Earth is the ultimate nurturing experience. However, there is also a hedonistic streak to your personality that must be kept in check from time to time, to minimize your tendercies towards overindulgence.
