Taurus Rising

Meaning of Rising Sign

Taurus rising means that Taurus was the zodiac sign that was on the eastern horizon at the time of your birth. As a Taurus rising, you're ruled by earth, and your ruling planet is Venus, the planet of love, beauty, long-term connections and money.


Because Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty, it's typical that this placement has a pleasing face to look at. They can charm anyone with just a swift glance! It doesn't just stop there though. This placement will likely have an aesthetic look to all of their features, including hair, skin and body formation.

Taurus rules the neck and shoulders, so their Taurean figures are likely to come out in these areas very strongly. Taurus is the sign of the Bull, so Taurus rising natives will often have very sturdy and strong shoulders. They could also have thick necks (or no neck at all from the looks of them).

Taurus is unmoving and unshakable, so, therefore, a Taurus rising should have such a body. This placement will often appear stout or have a square-shaped body. They may also be of average height with brown-colored eyes or hair.

At its core, fixed-sign Taurus is not one to compromise. While this energy is steadfast in pursuit, they are also impossible to mediate with if there is a disagreement. So, a Taurus rising will not be willing to change anything about their immediate surroundings anytime soon. They might even prefer to stay in their hometown—they know the place, they have their favorite spots, and they have locked down a routine.

In the mind of a Taurus rising, “slow and steady wins the race.” This rising sign will not make a quick, irrational move. They will contemplate how to react to any situation to make sure it is the appropriate response. And that's why stubbornness can happen. When you take so long to decide on something, you have an aptitude to make the right choices—and, therefore, assume that you're correct.

It's not that this placement is slow … it's that they truly value their time. So, they definitely won't waste it on someone who doesn't deserve it. This makes Taurus rising personalities very loyal friends and partners.

Rising sign placements refer to very physical parts of ourselves, including energy. When a Taurus rising gathers enough energy to do something, they will go through with it. But you cannot make a Taurus rising do anything. There could be times when this sign would rather lounge around all day long eating popcorn and watching movies than performing actual activities.

The first impression a Taurus rising gives to others is someone who is super calm, chill and easygoing. This person could get along with any (nice) stranger. But, if that stranger is pushy, intrusive or too bombastic, the Bull will not take this well. Taurus rising is always peaceful, so most likely they will simply walk away. Watch out, though—while Taurus risings are very patient, they can blow up on anyone if pushed to their limits!
