Taurus And Gemstones
Publised on Jan 13, 2016
The word Taurus is derived from the Greek word 'Taurus', which means a Bull. In Sanskrit, it is called वृषभ (Vrishabha). It represents procreation and power. The ancient seers considered a bull to be a representation of this sign. Being immensely physically well built, they have an enormous competence to breed its stock. In this form, it is a storehouse of the procreative energy.
वृषलग्ने भवेज्जातो गुरुभक्तः प्रियंवद: |
गुणी कृती धनी लुब्धः शूरः सर्वजनप्रियः ||
Those born in the Taurus ascendant are respectful to elders, soft-spoken, well-mannered, energetic and active, wealthy, money-oriented, audacious and overall liked. It is considered to be one of the luckiest sign out of all 12 signs. Taurus represents materialistic growth.
Qualities In A Taurus Born:
Modesty for achieving objectives-
A person born under this sign has an armory of soft speech, well-mannered behavior, competence for tackling adverse conditions and tactful opponents. They don’t show their cards until they have achieved their targetted objective.
Respect for Elders-
They are always keen to learn different skills or upgrade them for an economically sound future. Showing respect to elders and experts is one of the factors for their materialistic growth.
There is a Sanskrit shloka, which perfectly suit the Taureans:
अभिवादन शीलस्य नित्यं वृद्धोपसेविन ||
चत्वारि तस्य वर्धन्ते आयुर्विद्या यशोबलम||
Through a set of good manners and by giving proper respect to the elders, one can achieve longevity in lifespan, skills, fame and power.
Risk taking ability-
Risk is an integral part of any entrepreneur’s story. One may not hope for some growth without undertaking any risk. Taureans are proficient in managing risks and establish stability in life.
Drawbacks In The Taurean Natives:
Materialistic thoughts over Spiritualism-
Excess of everything is bad. Taureans have a preoccupation for material assets, especially luxury goods and wealth, and equates them with happiness and fulfillment. Sometimes, this excess obsession for materialistic wealth breeds unhappiness. For removing such type of thoughts, one should wear a good quality Blue sapphire. It would enhance the humanitarian side of the wearer.
For achieving growth, Taureans can change their statement as rolling stone. They have the quality of changing the meaning of the statement without changing a word. This drawback of dualism can be rectified by using a Blue sapphire, worn in the middle finger.
Taureans are extremely goal-oriented that they often form a belief that the humankind revolves around them. Their self-indulgent streak makes them offensive, and ignorant of others’ emotions. In this case, an emerald can be the perfect solution as it would make the native sensible, realistic and responsible.
