Crystals For Taurus
If you were born from April 20th to May 20th, you are a Taurus.
Taurus, the second sign of the zodiac, is all about reward. Unlike the Aries love of the game, Taurus loves the rewards of the game. Think physical pleasures and material goods, for those born under this sign revel in delicious excess. They are also a tactile lot, enjoying a tender, even sensual, touch. Taurus adores comfort and likes being surrounded by pleasing, soothing things. Along these lines, they also favor a good meal and a fine wine. The good life in all its guises, whether it's the arts or art of their own making (yes, these folks are artistic as well), is heaven on Earth to the Taurus-born.
Zodiac Sign: Taurus
Ruling House: Second
Ruling Planets: Venus
Taurus is ruled by Venus, a lovely goddess who didn't deny herself many things. In ancient Roman mythology, Venus was the Goddess of Love, Beauty and Pleasure, and Taurus has pretty much taken up where she left off. Bulls are fond of all things pretty, whether it's in their home, at a museum or on the stage. Life as one sweet pas de deux is how the Taurus-born like it. To onlookers, this may look like so much materialism and blessed excess, but Bulls really aren't interested in living without beauty in their lives. Beauty to the Bull also comes in the way of a happy home life, one that includes a partner and a stable relationship.
Jade is found to be a good stone for the bull. Jade is a hard, tough, strong, green crystal. It is a Guardian Harmonizer, which is a crystal that protects. The Guardian talismans do not reveal their inner strength. These stones rarely, if ever, form transparent crystals. Rather, they hide their strength behind an opaque mask, obscuring the power they possess. Jade is also an outstanding stone to use in protecting your loved ones in the physical world. In the spiritual world, they protect your beliefs from your doubts. Green Jade is an ancient talisman of protection and luck. It makes an excellent "lucky stone" to protect you against ill fortune.
Malachite is another traditional crystal associated with Taurus. This stone helps release stress and balance the left and right brain. Itâ€™s one of the only stones that can activate all chakras. Malachite is a excellent protector of children. In the physical world they are fantastic amulets for protecting your loved ones, your possessions, and your physical security. When they have the Earth Power of a Builder from their chemical makeup, these crystals are perfect aids in building up wealth, or improving our lot in life both materially and spiritually. With their predominately green color Malachite brings us the power of respect and compassion teaching us humanity, discretion, and honor. They help us act more charitably, and focus our efforts on service to others.
Jade is a talisman of personal protection and one of the joy of nature. It is a powerful guardian of your loved ones and your physical security. Jade will bring you the blessings and protections of many Goddesses.
