To fully understand Taurus Ascendant people, you need to look deeply into the actual sign of Taurus. Taurus is ruled by Venus , also known as Aphrodite in Greek Mythology. Cronus (Saturn) castrated his father (Ouranos - Uranus) and threw the testicles into the ocean. A white foam was produced from there, and Aphrodite rose, fully grown. That is why Venus is exalted in Pisces. She was born in the ocean. Therefore, in order for Aphrodite to be born, three gods were involved - Ouranos, the great father god of the sky; Cronus (the Titan), who castrated him; and Poseidon (Neptune), who ruled the ocean.   

Therefore a Taurus Ascendant has within them, the stability of Cronus (Saturn), who rules Capricorn, the sensitivity of Poseidon, who rules Pisces, and the ability to be in and take charge, like Ouranos, the great sky god.  


With Taurus Ascendant people, all fleeting thoughts are entertained, allowing their possibility to become permanent. Quality is always more important than quantity. Great importance is placed on traditions, habits, readiness of resources, and the maintenance of the status quo. They view with suspicion undesirable changes.

In contrast to Aries Ascendant folks, Taurus Ascendant people do not value grand adventures or the next new thing. Instead, they are looking for stability, security, and the quiet it takes to make sound decisions. They can sometimes seclude themselves in privacy, as Taurus AC people are the most self-sufficient Rising signs, able to handle anything independently. Most importantly, Taurus AC is all about sensuality

Taurus is a feminine Earth sign that is of the Fixed modality.

Taurus Ascendant Motto and Looks

Their Motto in life is "I have ." They can be very materialistic and need to consume and purchase things to make them feel good. They can be extreme hoarders and love showing off expensive threads, cars, and the latest cellphones, etc... Their Instagram page will always be full of material things, for example, "Look what I just bought," and low and behold, the latest Louis Vuitton bag appears on their page. However, their page will be filled with things they cook as well as their gorgeous gardens or plants.


Taurus Rising people often have thick necks and two bumps on the top of their foreheads (indicating the two horns of the bull). They often put most of their weight on their stomachs and around their waists, and their legs are thinner in comparison. 

Taurus Ascendant Qualities - The Good

They are warm people who love working together in a group. In doing so, they benefit from the unique ability to connect with different people and build a social network. They recognize people's skills and can delegate tasks according to their observations in a beautiful way. However, don't pressure them into deadlines, put them under undue pressure, or make them stress about the future, or they immediately lose their luster and flexibility- becoming stubborn and lazy. 

The body is a focal point for Taurus Ascendant people because they must be in that body, feel themselves sensually, and become well acquainted with self-pleasure. Therefore, high importance is placed on physical closeness, touching, and depth of bodily sensations


The Bull's Achilles heel is the future - fear of the unknown or loss of things intensely loved jeopardizes sustainable means of comfort. So accepting change is the balancing force for this Venusian sign- adapt at all costs, even if it threatens what's always been done. 

Taurus Ascendant Qualities - The Bad

Taurus Ascendants can really indulge in anything that brings them pleasure through their senses. They can easily become addicted to food , alcohol, and making love with multiple partners (though not always at the same time). They can also be exceptionally stubborn, often so to prove a point as they always like to be right. If angered enough, their tempers are enormous, like a boiling kettle, and they literally become very scary "bulls in a china shop."  

Taurus Descendant - Scorpio

The Descendant  of Taurus is the intense Zodiac sign of Scorpio . Scorpio seeks transformation through change by uncovering or facing the painful music.
