If you’re a Taurus, you need to know two things about your sign: Taurus is ruled by Venus (the planet of love, pleasure, beauty, money) and symbolized by the bull (placid and calm one minute, raging and stampeding the next). Taurus is a misunderstood sign, sometimes lazily characterized as a stubborn, deliberating, possessive homebody. Actually, y’all are deep thinkers and analysts who spend such a long time coming to your conclusions and thinking everything through TWICE that you can seem slow (especially when compared to a Gemini or Aquarius).
What’s more, Taurus is a zodiac sign that everyone can get along with. They’re pleasure-seeking, laid-back (until they’re not…), and always ready for a good time. And about that “not”: You do often come off as stubborn because you don’t like changing your mind. Well, it took you a lot of energy to decide on your POV, and you’ve probably already mentally countered the arguments they think will sway you. Don’t underestimate the bull, okay!
People with significant Taurus placements love security, surety, comfort, companionship, pleasure, and indulgence. You’re stoic and strong, confident in your own skin, and you make great company (especially for spa days, shopping, fine dining, or chill days at home). You forge lasting, loyal relationships, and you never give up on anything you put your mind to. You know that hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. That’s exactly why you’ll find so many rich, successful, and famous Tauruses out there!
Tauruses need extra crystal help when it comes to thriving in fast-paced, demanding environments. They also benefit from crystals to help them relax from the stress of perfectionism and the pressure to exceed others’ expectations (or their own). Tauruses are known for their stamina but can struggle when a situation calls for a short burst of high-octane activity or thinking, so crystals that sharpen clarity and boost energy are great allies.
You don’t really need any help living your best life, but if you’re looking for a little boost, these crystals will help sharpen your mental focus, ground you, protect you, enhance your sense of security, and tons of other good stuff. Also, aren’t they pretty? You love pretty things.
