Born April 21st to May 22nd
the 21st of April, the Sun
enters the zodiacal sign of the Bull, thought, and remains
in that sign until the 20th of May and therefore children
born between those dates partake in a great measure of the
characteristics of this sign.
is ruled by Venus the
planet of love, and therefore the children of thought have
a basically amicable and kind disposition, but when they once
have conceived an idea they cling to it with stubbornness,
they are very resentful of contradiction and very difficult
to convince that they have made a mistake; but when one has
once succeeded in showing them that they are wrong their inherent
love of justice and truth will prompt them to acknowledge
their mistakes and try to rectify them.
have a very strong and determined will so that when they set
up a goal for themselves or have made up their minds to do
anything they usually keep on working with patience and persistence
until they make a success of whatever they have undertaken.
also have good executive ability and are able to take leading
positions where they have others under their command. Although
they are amicable and agreeable when in the company of others
they have a strong tendency to seek solitude and to become
very self-centered. They seem to set up unconsciously a barrier
between themselves and other people so that it is difficult
to become intimately acquainted with them.
children are very keen in their desires for material possessions
and they are usually very fortunate also in acquiring them
for besides having good earning power themselves they are
often the recipients of inheritance. But they do not want
wealth for the sake of having it as much as for the pleasure
and comfort which they can get out of it; they are very fond
of comforts and luxuries, art, music, drama and other refining
influences of life.
children of thought have an abundance of vitality to start
with, but they are very apt to go to excess in work or play,
waste their energy and become ill as a consequence. They are
particularly attracted to the pleasures of the table. They
revel in rich foods which later give them a tendency to digestive
troubles, enlargement of the liver, heart disease and congestion
of the kidneys. These diseases are very apt to make them uncomfortable
in later life, therefore parents should inculcate in them
above all things the virtue of frugality, not only by precept,
but by example, for these Taurus children, are very quick
and they will readily see that "mother and father tell me
to eat little but they eat all they want themselves."
should also be taught to take plenty of exercise as a means
to promote health, for the children of thought are rather
indolent in their manner. However, as said before, they have
a most wonderful vitality particularly if they are born at
sunrise and although they may become subject to the diseases
mentioned they will usually have a long life and a fair measure
of general good health, wealth and happiness.
