BORN MAY 9TH? YOUR SIGN IS TAURUS by Lucas Vanderlinden

Were you born on May 9th? If so, then according to Western astrology, your zodiac sign is Taurus, the sign of the bull. This means that when you were born, the Sun was in the stars that make up the constellation known as Taurus. Let's explore the basics of your horoscope below.

Taurus Overview

Taurus, known as "vrishabha" in Sanskrit, is characterized by certain basic traits. Here's a breakdown of the general make-up of the sign of Taurus:

  • Sign of the Bull: Taurus natives are hard-working, determined, and have a big heart. However, they may show partiality to their own group and be callous toward outsiders.
  • Ruled by Venus: Venus is the planet of sensuality, fine food, the arts, and affairs of the home. Venetian individuals are fond of luxury and the good life.
  • An Earth Sign: Those with a Taurus moon are grounded, thoughtful, and calm.
  • A Fixed Sign: Persons born under this sign are steady, predictable, and slow to change.
  • A Feminine Sign: This makes the native receptive, sensitive, and empathetic.
  • Taurus' preferred gemstone is diamond. Taureans can also benefit from white sapphire and white topaz.

Traits of the Sun in Taurus

In Western Astrology, a person's sign is determined by the position of the Sun. If you were born on May 9th, then you're considered a Taurus according to most people in the Western world. The influence of the Sun in a birth chart varies, but here are some general traits likely to be found in a native whose Sun is in Taurus:

  • You are a talented musician. The sign of Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of the arts. You have a natural inclination towards music and may excel as a musician or singer. Composing and performing for others might bring you joy.
  • You have great endurance. You are a hard worker and capable of bearing a large burden. Loyalty and affection drive you to sacrifice for your friends and loved ones.
  • You do not have many enemies. Others find it easy to get along with you. You have a knack for interacting with others in a way that keeps them happy. Conflict is something you tend to avoid.
  • You have a good sense of aesthetics. Your natural artistic inclination can lead to a successful career in clothing, fashion, design, or any creative profession. If your work doesn't involve creativity, cultivating a hobby that allows for creative expression can be beneficial.
  • You don't like the water. Generally, people with the Sun in Taurus are not very interested in water sports, swimming, or living near bodies of water. You are more of a land-loving person.

Taurus Careers

Taureans are reliable and steady workers with a penchant for the arts. They make excellent employees and team members. Consider these career options:

  • Recommended careers: Your trustworthiness makes you an excellent candidate for roles of responsibility. Taureans thrive as teachers, financial advisors, accountants, or bankers. Their connection to the earth lends strength to careers in farming, animal husbandry, construction, or vehicle maintenance. Your fine aesthetic sense can also help you succeed as an artist, baker, chef, or designer.
  • Careers to avoid: Taureans may want to avoid careers that require quick decisions or constant travel. Occupations like being a pilot, truck driver, surgeon, paramedic, or police officer may not align with your strengths.

Taurus Mantras

A mantra is a short phrase that uplifts and cleanses our mind, heart, and consciousness. It offers relief from suffering and negativity. Taureans can benefit from meditating with the following mantras:

  • ॐ परशुरामय नमः (Om parashuramaya namaha)
  • हरे कृष्ण हरे कृष्ण कृष्ण कृष्ण हरे हरे हरे राम हरे राम राम राम हरे हरे (Hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare Hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare)
