BORN APRIL 28TH? YOUR SIGN IS TAURUS by Lucas Vanderlinden

Were you born on April 28? If so, then according to Western astrology, your zodiac sign is Taurus, the sign of the bull. This means that when you were born, the Sun was in the stars that make up the constellation known as Taurus. Let's dive into the basics of your horoscope below.

Taurus Overview

Taurus is known as "वृषभ" (vrishabha) in Sanskrit, or the "bull." Each sign of the zodiac is characterized by certain basic traits. Let's explore the general makeup of the sign of Taurus:

  • Sign of the Bull: Taurus natives are hard-working, determined, and have a big heart. However, they tend to show partiality to their own group and can be callous toward outsiders.
  • Ruled by Venus: Venus is the planet of sensuality, fine food, the arts, and affairs of the home. Venetian individuals are fond of luxury and living the good life.
  • An earth sign: Those with a Taurus moon are grounded, thoughtful, and calm.
  • A fixed sign: Persons born under this sign are steady, predictable, and slow to change.
  • A feminine sign: This makes the native receptive, sensitive, and empathetic.
  • Taurus' preferred gemstone is diamond: Taureans can also benefit from white sapphire and white topaz.

Traits of the Sun in Taurus

In Western Astrology, a person's sign is determined by the position of the Sun. If you were born on April 28th, then you're considered a Taurus according to most people in the Western world.

The influence of the Sun in a birth chart will change depending on various factors. However, here are some general traits likely to be found in a native whose Sun is in Taurus:

  • You are a talented musician: The sign of Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of the arts. You are a skilled musician and singer. You may like to compose music and desire to perform for others.
  • You have great endurance: You are a hard worker and capable of bearing a large burden. You do not mind sacrificing yourself for your friends and loved ones due to your loyalty and affection for the people in your life.
  • You do not have many enemies: Overall, you are a simple-hearted person, and others find you easy to get along with. You know how to interact with others in a way that keeps them happy with you. You do not like conflict and will almost always choose to avoid it.
  • You have a good sense of aesthetics: You are a naturally artistic person. You can earn a good livelihood in clothing, fashion, design, or some other artistic and creative profession. If your work does not involve your natural creativity, then keeping a hobby that allows for creative expression will be very helpful for you.
  • You don't like the water: Usually, people who have the Sun in Taurus are not very interested in water sports, swimming, or living in places that border oceans and lakes. You're more of a land-loving kind of person.

Taurus Careers

Taureans are reliable and steady workers with an affinity for the arts. They are prized employees and team members. However, you may undervalue your own worth and toil away for years for the sake of another's profits.

Recommended careers: Your trustworthiness makes you an excellent candidate for roles of responsibility. Taureans make wonderful teachers, financial advisors, accountants, or bankers. Their connection to the earth lends strength to careers in farming, animal husbandry, construction, or vehicle maintenance. Your fine aesthetic sense can also help you succeed as an artist, baker, chef, or designer.

Careers to avoid: You may want to avoid careers that require quick decisions or constant travel. For example, Taureans may not make the best pilots, truck drivers, surgeons, paramedics, or police officers.

Taurus Mantras

A mantra is a short phrase that uplifts and cleanses our mind, heart, and consciousness. By practicing mantra meditation, we can experience relief from suffering and negativity.

Taureans can especially benefit by meditating with the following mantra:

ॐ परशुरामय नमः
Om parashuramaya namaha

The Vedas contain many mantras that are effective for different people according to their unique circumstances. However, some mantras are universal. The following maha-mantra, or "super mantra," is beneficial for people born in any zodiac sign:

हरे कृष्ण हरे कृष्ण कृष्ण कृष्ण हरे हरे हरे राम हरे राम राम राम हरे हरे
Hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare Hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare
