Features of Ascendant of Taurus
If a person has Taurus rising, they tend to be placid and easygoing. They also have charming social manners and a strong artistic bent, for the sign of Taurus is ruled by Venus, planet of love and aesthetics. They want to create beauty and harmony in their life, and many Taurus Ascendants have a flair for writing, decorating or composing music.
Taurus-Rising people dont push their opinions on others. On the other hand, once they make up their mind, they rarely change it. These people hold on to their opinions and can be very stubborn and obstinate.
Taurus-Rising people have a reputation for laziness that is not entirely deserved. It is true that they love creature comforts, elegance, luxury, physical ease and lots of leisure. However, they can and do work very hard, especially if motivated by the promise of money or by the approval of someone they love. Determined, persistent and strong-willed, they possess endless patience to see a thing through, to make it a success.
Taurus is the sign of wealth and material possessions, both of which are extremely important to them. They have a tendency to brood about their future security. They may have to struggle for money when they are young, Taurus-Rising people tend to accumulate wealth as the years roll by. Owning things can sometimes become a mania; they covet possessions and once they own something they guard it jealously and are heartbroken if they lose it. They never resign themself to the fact that things break, tear, wear out, get lost and are stolen.
In relationships, as well, they tend to be jealous and possessive, although they are adept at hiding this. One of their weak points is their vanity and they rarely forgive anyone who ridicules them. Having to cope with rivalry is hard for them. They may try to pretend the prize is not worthy of their talents.
As a person with Taurus rising, they tend to have an unusually good-looking face, large round eyes and clear skin. Often their neck is short and thick, and their body gives the impression of weight and sturdiness. Becoming overweight is a problem, especially in later years.
The planet Venus, which rules Taurus, is very prominent in their horoscope. The influence of Venus bestows grace; charm; a love of pleasure, art and adornment; and social awareness. It also encourages overindulgence, superficiality, jealousy and conceit.
