HOROSCOPE

The Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus, but as you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, you also receive a dose of Saturn’s mysterious power. While Venus’s influence can be witnessed in your social and warm nature, your discipline, order and perseverance can all be linked to Saturn’s planetary influence. Your planetary powers combine to make you the most disciplined of all the Taurus Decans. When you complete a task, it is done thoughtfully and with a great attention to detail. Surprisingly, you do not desire any praise for your hard work, because above all, you value the security and comfort of material gains. Although you may be serious to the outside world, you are kind-hearted and playful in the comfort of your home life.
