Taurus Colours, Patterns, and Designs
The typical Taurus prefers deep blues, violets, and sometimes pastels such as lavender, pink, and mauve. This sign is associated with colours that soothe and suggest harmony and peace. Calm floral colours such as lilac are linked to the sign of Taurus.
Copper is also a Taurus colour due to its association with Venus, the ruler of Taurus. Venus rules all things beautiful and sensual, and Taurus colours often have luscious or sensuous associations. Because Taurus is co-ruled by the planet Earth, soft, natural greens are also associated with this sign.
Taurus patterns are soft florals and batiks. Taureans tend to prefer designs that suggest nature or natural things, so patterns will usually have rolling curves rather than straight lines, and solid colours will be understated rather than harsh and abrasive.
Gemstones associated with the sign of Taurus include malachite, jade, diamond (April), and emerald (May).
Taurus Trees, Plants, Flowers, and Foods
If purchasing plants, seeds, or food, there are certain trees, flowers, and edibles associated with the sign of Taurus. Taurus trees include the willow (April 15-May 12) and the hawthorn (May 13-June 9), as well as the sycamore, pecan, cherry, ash, cypress, and apple.
Taurus flowers, herbs, and foods are those ruled by either Venus or the Earth. These include violet, lily, lovage, mint, elder flower, fern, cloves, primrose, thyme, poppy, strawberry, apple white rose, daisy, and daffodil, as well as root vegetables such as potatoes, turnips, and carrots.
The Atypical Taurus
Not all Taurus people will conform to the typical Taurus profile. A Taurus whose rising sign is in Aries, for example, will be very different from one who has Pisces rising. A Taurus with Aries rising will likely be less concerned with comfort and have more mechanical aptitude, whereas with Pisces rising, the Taurus person may be less sociable but have more refined artistic talents.
