April 21 was the first day of Taurus, the first earth sign of the Greek Zodiac. People born between April 20 and May 20 are generally patient, reliable, honest as they are practical, and welcome hard work. However, this patience can turn to an uncompromising stubbornness, since they will never quit, even when they really should. They’re considered “fixed” because of this tendency to stick their feet in the ground and not give an inch.
Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet and goddess of love. This means they’re sensual, experiencing the world through touch, taste, sound, and smell as much as they do through sight. Because of this they need space and quiet to recharge. They like their routines because of the comfortable constancy, much like their personalities. They may need a bit of a push to try something new, but will find it’s well worth it.
Their colors are green, for growth and nature, and pink, for nurturing and love.
Now here’s the interesting thing about the Zodiac that not most people know about. There’s a period of about 10 days surrounding the switch from one sign to another called the “cusp”. During this time, the two signs blend, giving people born during this time the best (and worst) of both signs. These people are called “cuspians”.
People born between March 21 and April 19 are Aries and have a reputation for being impulsive, no matter how often that impulsiveness pays off. This impulsivity, as well as their short temper, confidence, and passion, bleeds into those cuspians, creating an interesting individual that is not to be messed with.
Aries-Taurus cuspians are a blend of opposites, which is mirrored in their colors of red, passion and strength, and green. They are courageously impulsive, knowing this idea is a good one, and will dig their heels into the earth whenever they’re challenged. Their calm steadiness can become an everlasting grudge, their nurturing constancy can become a passionate enthusiasm that will lead to new experiences.
