The Ram and the Bull

The stubbornness and strength of the bull combined with the energy of Aries gives a considerable capacity for perseverance and leadership. Such a person can follow through where others give up and that quality alone may cause him or her to rise to leadership. Once at the top, an Aries Taurus cusp individual can dig in and stay there better than most. The only real problem is that Aries, which is symbolized by the Ram, tends to try and ram through problems. When this is mixed with the bullheadedness of Taurus, it can make for a volatile combination that can be quite hard on juniors who don't follow through on the intentions of Command. An Aries-Taurus person can be as blunt as they are bold. And such an individual exemplifies determination with the volume turned all the way up. Depending on other personality traits, such a person can make a courageous pioneer, a top notch general or a ruthless dictator.

The sentimentality of Taurus can often modify Aries' rather cold attitude. Taurus may be stubborn, but the Bull has a strong sentimental streak that will often dominate later in the transition. This can cause the odd phenomenon of a tough minded Aries who can be motivated less by facts and more by emotion. Altogether, an Aries-Taurus cusp is one of the more interesting transitions as both signs have characteristics that seem mutually exclusive and yet can combine in interest ways. Dynamic, yet stable. Fiery and passionate, yet sentimental and gentle, strongly aggressive and stubborn. An Aries-Taurus individual is a unique mix that will definitely make life interesting for anyone they encounter.

Aries can be quite judgmental and has no qualms about sitting in judgment on the worth of others. Aries is ruled by Mars, the god of war and when mixed with Taurus can be a stubborn and dangerous opponent. However, this tendency will lessen the more the date of birth tends toward Taurus. Taurus is ruled by Venus, the goddess of love. Taurus is more sensual than Aries and an Aries to Taurus transit can lean toward the intellectual, if early in the cycle, or more toward the sensual if later in the cycle. Which sign has the most influence, depends on where in the transition a person is born. The preceding sign has the most influence at the beginning and the least influence at the end. Although that influence never completely goes away and remains throughout the transition.

People born on the Aries-Taurus cusp also exhibit many other characteristics. The intellect of Aries and the love of sensual pleasure of Taurus combine to create an individual who has an appreciation of art, especially fine art. They may become art collectors or have hobbies related to art or the collection of objects that exhibit fine workmanship, such as miniatures or even classic model railroads. When the energy of Aries dominates, you can expect a person born on the Aries-Taurus Cusp to be an active participant in sports, rather than an observer. At the very least, they will be an action oriented individual. While Taurus is less active than Aries, both together can make a contribution and in some cases tend to magnify each other’s characteristics, because two characteristics from different signs can be complementary. For example, the tough mindedness of Taurus can turn the volume up on the Aries tendency to be judgmental. And the Aries trait of intellectualism mixed with ego, can make Taurus, who loves to be the center of attention, more desirous of achieving acclaim for intellectual prowess.

Aries Zodiac Sign

Aries zodiac sign cusps are ambitious persons, who love to engage in great enterprises. With them the intellect is the main feature, but they always find it difficult to understand their own emotions and feelings. They are too often inclined to fly off at tangents and will rush into danger somewhat recklessly. When not living up to the highest strength of their character, they have a tendency to jealousy, they expect loyalty from others and may be somewhat exacting in this respect. When fully individualised, these persons make very grand characters, especially in all pioneer work, their enthusiasm rarely being daunted by obstacles. When their mind is made up they seek to overcome all opposition, more by their dominant will and masterful spirit than by simple perseverance.

Taurus Zodiac Sign

Taurus zodiac sign cusps are slow, plodding, patient, enduring, persistent, executive and matter-of-fact persons. They are remarkable for their conservatism, and they never seem to waste their strengths like the Aries types, who scatter them everywhere. Persons possessing the strongest wills are born under this sign, but when living for themselves exclusively, they become as obstinate as it is possible for them to be. They can be very determined, persistent and dogmatic; they usually speak with a quiet, firm, inflexible and almost authoritative tone. Possessing a considerable amount of physical vitality, the Taurus become furious and violent when severely angered, but as they are usually slow, careful and cautious, it takes a very great deal to excite them, although when very excited they stand beside themselves with rage. They can do a great amount of good by their steady, building capacity, being capable and able to carry out all plans entrusted to them.
