HOROSCOPE

The Taurus’s ruling planet is Venus, but as you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, Saturn’s influence also plays an important role in your personality. While it is the influence of Venus that links to your appreciation of beauty and sociability. It is Saturn’s power of control that is reflected in your perseverance, order and wisdom. Your unique planetary power makes you the most disciplined of all the Taurus Decans. You are hard working and organized in all of your efforts, as security is one of your most fundamental concerns. As long as you and your family are taken care of, you have little interest in the limelight. Although you are surely considered serious by most, those closest to you would be the first to attest to your fun-loving and caring nature.
