Taurus Sun Scorpio Rising

There is an Opposition Aspect between these two Signs who oppose yet attract one another simultaneously. The person with this combination will also often be fascinated with Egypt and ancient Egyptian civilization (South Node in Scorpio indicates a past life in Egypt, which carries through into a Taurus or Scorpio personality). The issues concerned with this combination arise around physical relationships (and desire) with others. Manipulation and using others to satisfy one's end goal, self-worth, and value are possible. This all connects to tapping into one's own power, as well as a connection to the Earth and its natural cycles.


In Greek mythology, Scorpio is ruled by Pluto (Hades), and Taurus is ruled by Venus (Aphrodite). Hades is Aphrodite's Uncle, and Aphrodite had an obsession to rule the hearts of everyone. As a result, she sent her son Eros (Cupid) to shoot an arrow into Hades' heart- taking it forever. Hades is also known for his obsession with Persephone, Demeter's daughter, since the moment he saw her. He took her into his Underworld and forced her hand in marriage. This story gave way to the dawning and opening of Seasons, Spring, and Summer. When Persephone is with her mother Demeter, it is Spring and Summer, and when she resides in the Underworld with Hades, it symbolizes Autumn and Winter.

Many Astrologers believe that Earth rules Taurus, as this Sign connects with plants, the soil, and Earth elements. In addition, Taurus Sun, Scorpio Rising represents the seasonal cycles of death and transformation, a significant aspect of what Scorpio means.

Although they are Opposing Signs, Taurus' Earth Element naturally supports Scorpio's Water Element, and they are very soothing for one another. When emotions surface due to Scorpio Rising's sensitive feelings, the Taurus Sun will bring calm to the eye of the storm. This Rising Sign makes Taurus a bit more emotional than the usual Taurus, assertive and determined, with occasional obsessive tendencies.

How to Recognize Taurus Sun Scorpio Rising  


When it comes to appearance, a person with this combination will indulge in the color black by wearing it or having distinct dark features and also enjoy wearing deep blues, reds, and greens. As a result, they will have a "dominating" appearance that may seem to intimidate others.

Taurus Sun Scorpio Rising Career

In career, Leo rules the Midheaven, meaning that as introverted as this Taurus character can be, when it comes to their job, they need to shine! They want to be noticed for their efforts, and their career needs to be centered around creativity. They may revolve their career around children, possibly decorating parties, baking cakes, and other delicious food for them. They may even choose a career as a singer (as Taurus rules the throat). Aries governs their 6th House of everyday work, so they have to be leaders in charge of whatever they do, and they like to be independent and a pioneer in their field. They may be involved in fitness, such as personal training or military work, and this Scorpio/Taurus energy also lends itself to psychology and detective work.

Taurus Sun Scorpio Rising Health


Aries rules their 6th House of Health, so these Taurus people need to work out often and sweat it out. Their natural Scorpio Rising energy often makes them hold on to grudges and want to seek revenge. A 5-day a week workout plan combined with a well-balanced diet full of healthy proteins, carbohydrates, fruits, and vegetables. They must stay well hydrated to avoid headaches, which can be a major complaint. Visiting the gynecologist regularly if female and checking the prostate yearly if they're a male is essential for staying on top of health.

Taurus Sun Scorpio Rising Love 

Taurus rules their 7th House of relationships, marriage, and love, and the Sun will be here, making connection and sensuality a big theme in their life. Focused on marriage from a young age, they will desire a stable partner, both emotionally and financially. In matters of the heart, other Scorpios and Taureans will be attracted to this person. Pisces will fit in perfectly, along with Cancer, Virgo, and Capricorn. Librans, Sagittarians, Geminis, and Aries will make fast friends. There will be more ground to cover with Leos and Aquarians as they pose a challenge.

How Taurus Sun Scorpio Rising Should Start the Day 


Rising signs dictate the beginning of the day, so as a Scorpio Rising, this person needs to sit for a while and be in their own space when they wake up. If they have a partner, they will enjoy getting physical with them in the morning. They should then meditate and lift their energetic vibration to a more positive state before getting out of bed. It is suitable for them to connect with water first thing in the morning, so splashing the face and taking a few sips of water is the right approach. Eating a hearty breakfast, followed by a morning workout and a warm shower, makes this person feel confident and strong. They need to take the time to pamper themselves to feel attractive, as this adds to their feelings of self-worth. Only after all these things are done are they ready to begin working!
