The Taurus Mixtape: Rock Steady


Shout out to all of the Taurus family out there !! Yes… the time has come where we pay homage to you, and with good reason.

I’ve always had an issue of how Taureans are portrayed in many Astrological texts. The bull somehow gets typecast as slow-witted, dull, ultra-obstinate and just as a downright snoozer. Somehow, these characterizations never fit my real life experience with Tauruses.

I have always found them to be very passionate, loyal people who have the tenacity to see their vision through to the very end. Now… this is not to say that their vision may be fixed straight ahead possibly giving the peripheral little consideration, but their heart is always in the right place without a doubt. When the bull is mis-using their energy, the “if it ain’t broke” mentality may rise to the surface.

This is where incorporating some of the energy of their complimentary sign, Scorpio will give them some “act right”. Taurus is a builder. One of their tasks is to create and acquire physical manifestations of their labor. As an earth sign, Taurus wants to know what success looks like, whether it’s that new Lexus or an extra 20 g’s in the bank account. From the bull’s point of view, motivational tapes are fine, but brick and mortar is where it’s at.

If anyone in the zodiac is the steady rock with  the physical stamina to boot, it’s you, Taurus. You can and WILL get it done. I present to you my musical dedication.
