Moon in Aries
Here is an individual who is patient, refined and gentle yet is no push over. You have the ability to assert yourself more than other Taureans. This may be for your own ambitions but you do it so nicely. The impulsive side of the Aries Moon needs to be checked as it can seem if you lack consistency of thought and action. Broadminded one moment – you can be overzealous the next, especially if contradicted. Also you can be quick to judge a situation and then later do a 180 degree turn around and take the opposite stand point just as adamantly. You have great leadership potential but try not to push others to your will. You do not like it when others try this ploy. Harness that Taurean charm to improve personal interactions.
Moon in Taurus
You need to surround yourself with beautiful objects that you have personally procured through hard work. This gives you both enormous pleasure and a feeling of security. You have great taste but can be overindulgent with your pleasures if left unchecked. Generally described as conservative due to your respect for protocol and procedures as they give you structure as does hard work because you see that it is a way of meeting your need for security, particularly financial security. You are a valued friend due to this double dose of Taurus. Loyal to your loved ones and a calm personable way of being honest, you rarely give offence as you are sensitive to pain and do not like inflicting it on others. Just take care not to dominate lesser souls with your opinions and judgements. However, the advice is usually appreciated.
Moon in Gemini
The Sun in Taurus and the Moon in Gemini can seem quite contradictory in nature due to the Sun’s need for stability and little change whereas the Moon in Gemini has a subtle restlessness due to an intellect thirsty for knowledge and experiences. However, the mental acuity and mischievousness of Gemini gives the serious though charming Taurus a more social demeanour and therefore you seem to be a more approachable individual. Many would think the Gemini need for constant stimulation would be waring on a Taurus but it makes the way for change a lot easier. However, there is a danger to being a little too quick to judge and stubbornly hold onto that opinion regardless. It would be wise to keep the mind mentally stimulated with further study. It may also help you to formulate opinions based on fact rather than assumption which is another trap you can fall into.
Moon in Cancer
There is a tendency to be a little too sensitive and emotional, however you find comfort from your home and family as these give you stability. Nurturing by nature, you have the capacity to steer others into being productive and motivate them to succeed though you will not want to take any credit for it. Try to harness that Taurean stubbornness and not relent to the Cancerean trait of letting others push you around. That just makes you resentful. You need to stand up for yourself and be firm with your decisions if you want to be taken seriously. You do try to hide when you should not have to. Have faith in your intuition as you do have sound business sense thanks to Taurus’s acquisitive tendencies. You may not be able to give reason to your decisions but you can trust your gut instinct.
Moon in Leo
A natural born leader due to Leo’s confidence, magnetism and bearing. You get the job done and that earns you the respect of your peers that you think you deserve. Your pride can be your downfall as you tend to take your own advice rather than heed that of others. This is mainly due to your having definite opinions, an implacable will and an abhorrence to change. Having said that, you are usually well organised and your good common sense allows you to see how to utilise this and reach your goals. Moon in Leo’s tendency to be overly generous will be checked by Taurus’s need for material gain. Though when it comes to luxuries, both sides struggle over practicality vs. desire – what you want as opposed to what you need. Beauty will always win out however!
Moon in Virgo
This is a person with pragmatism in spades. Moon in Virgo has an air of good sense, poise and calmness that resonates well with the Taurus persistence, stability and cautious nature. However, you may need a kick start as you are too busy looking at the finer details of what needs to be done and achieved rather than doing it. Once you get going though you get stuck in and produce amazing results due to your initial ground work. The lesson is to learn to be discriminating and not to be bogged down with details. Try not to be too pessimistic or whiny when things do not go your way. Or too critical of others who have more success at the same task as it looks petty. You have a good mind and can grasp concepts others may not. This is a good placement for the Moon as there is a focus on others rather than the self. Having Sun in Taurus and Moon in Virgo means you can and will benefit from some much needed pampering when required.
Moon in Libra
Both Taurus and Libra are ruled by Venus so you possess an acute sense of style and appreciate the arts. You thrive on creating a wonderful environment for yourself and your loved ones to live in and enjoy an active social life. There is a reliance on keeping the peace as you do not like conflict due to the anxiety you can feel. The lesson here is to resist giving in to others’ demands as you will be denying your deeper self by accepting these behaviours. Keeping the peace may come at a cost – to yourself. You cannot rely on others to fight your battles for you if you want them to respect you and not think of you as needy or shallow. You need to work in partnership with someone or be part of a team as collaboration brings out the best in your creativity and productivity.
Moon in Scorpio
This is a person who will say it as it is but with unanticipated vehemency. You are more emotionally intense than you appear as you do not want to show others how vulnerable you really are. It does not help that you have a double dose of stubbornness, will and determination but these qualities will keep you going to achieve what you need to maintain stability. They will also keep the competition guessing as to your next move. You are very definite and passionate about your loves and hates. There is no in between with you. Your sensual nature is a magnet to the others though your biggest downfall may be your temper. Jealous flare-ups are possible though it could be because of your desire to make things more dramatic and stormy than they need to be. Or it could be a cover for deep seated insecurity of losing the one you love. Honour that feeling and confide your fears. It will do much to alleviate the tension between you and make for a more fulfilling and honest relationship.
Moon in Sagittarius
Here is an individual with a joie-de-vive. That Sagittarian extrovert mixed with Taurean sensibilities gives you the ability to say what needs to be said at the right time. Even though you are direct, you are sincere and this is felt by those around you. Though you love being around people, you do like your own company. Better that than hanging out with someone boring. You enjoy physical activity as it curbs your restless spirit. However, there is the danger of being a little flighty and running off to have adventures which does not sit well with Taurus’s love of a strong home base. You need to focus on issues and let your Taurus Sun see them through rather than running away. This will ground you and give you confidence and security. You can still take time out to walk and smell the flowers but check if the travel bug is for adventure only and not to escape from more pressing issues before you buy your ticket. Remember – wherever you go, there you are.
Moon in Capricorn
You are a determined and ambitious individual who always has your eye on the prize. You take time to plan your next course of action and do so in a cool methodical and practical manner. There is no time to be frivolous with wishes and dreams. Though you are an unassuming character, heaven help anyone who demands rather than asks you do something you do not feel inclined to do, especially if it will not further your interests. Reliable, dependable and very responsible, especially for those near and dear, you can appear to be aloof and a little cold to others. Security is paramount to you and you may seek to achieve this via material possessions – at the cost of the emotional self. Taureans need to be pampered so Capricorn can benefit from letting the guard down, softening the edges and allowing yourself to be nurtured emotionally. Though you cope well under pressure and handle more than most, do you really have to do it alone?
Moon in Aquarius
Though Taurus likes to adhere to the status quo, Aquarius gives this person a more profound look at the world and those who exist in it. You can appear to be aloof and detached however, you do know how to get along with people and are quite affable, charming and easy going. In fact, you are quite good company and are genuinely interested in people. You are able to use this to your advantage and promote interest in humanitarian causes. Codes of conduct are very important yet you value your personal freedom. Your detachment could be due to overly controlling your feelings.
Moon in Pisces
Dreamy Pisces gives responsible Taurus an edge to its creativity though there is a tendency to lose sight of reality and live in a fantasy world. Personal boundaries need to be put in place. By that, you need to be discerning as to whom you befriend as they can impose on your kindness and empathy. Do not be lulled by flattery though with this placement you are more likely to sense this more than any other Taurean. Do not use avoidance tactics when it comes to instilling and maintaining boundaries. You need to be stubborn so as not to be put upon but do not be afraid of being unkind. You are really being kind to yourself. Your loving personality will smooth over ruffled feathers and merely achieve the kind of love you are seeking by showing others you know where the boundaries lie.
