Would Edison fire people who salted their food before tasting it? We have heard this story many times, but we have no evidence to support this. Another version of the story has Edison watching people eat before he hired them. If they salted their food before tasting it, they did not get the job. (Source: Edison National Historical Site)

    Moon in Taurus in the 12th, and the nature part is spot on, I’d love to live in a secluded cabin in the woods one day.

    Taurus in 10th house not sure about cooking but a career in beauty is nice. People always gauk whenever I make an effort to look nice otherwise when am home am in slacks and a vest. Also I work with alot of women wherever I go. I dont know about vocals. I sound like dying fish but I love singing. I usually need money , I like to share but its never enough sometimes. I have mars in Taurus in 10th and I heard thats a detrimental aspect so idk

  • Jorge Santos

    What do you mean “Two singers ” on Taurus in 7th house? This means that it may be probable that I marry a singer ?

    • Hi Jorge, because the 7th house indicates one-on-one relationships, a duet is possible. Taurus rules the throat and Taurean people often have a nice singing voice. You could attract someone with whom you enjoy singing (and it doesn’t have to be professional). Or maybe you attract someone who shares your love of music.

    6 th house Taurus.. Lazy about helping at chores? NOT TRUE! i enjoy in this.. as long as nobody pushes me or directs me what do i have to ..This really bothers… me that kind of opinios.. Sometimes this astrology is slopy..in texts..

    • Hi Nina Nipomembno,

      Much of this depends on the rest of your chart. The place of Saturn would have a lot to say about your industriousness, for example.

  • Kathleen

    My Taurus ascendant is dead on. I’m patient, simple & a couch potato. I like natural beauty, hate wearing make up & refuse any plastic surgery. Thanks for the blog Michelle!

    • Thanks for reading, Kathleen.

    i have venus & jupiter in the 9th and this is spot on! i’m a pisces sun, but i’m not addicted to drugs or alcohol like most. my addiction is great food (mostly sweets!) and traveling to exotic places! 

  • Gosh that pic on Taurus in 1st exactly what I have in mind about my Taurus ascendant..^^ and I hate it, cuz it’s the source of my feminine side lol

    • But you have Sun in Virgo too – that’s feminine. Taurus ascendant is a couch potato – or a garden flower 🙂

      • Yah, the plus part I look pleasant and pretty. Taurus asc make people respond nicely in face to face interaction but it’s overly passive and love comfort zone, also lazy somehow.
        Very simple! That’s true^^

        My ruler of the chart; Venus, also in Libra, that doesn’t help at all 🙁

  • Taurus in the 6th is exactly like me. I really get’s to the essence of what kinda person I am. Even the throat issues. It looks like placidus works much better for me if you consider this house.

    • Michelle

      Where is your Venus?

  • Stawr

      Mercury Taurus(chart ruler) house 12. Oh yes financial security is very important too me. But treating myself is very important too. But when treating myself I make sure I don’t go over board. I give my self a monthly budget for clothes shopping. I will treat myself to other things…as long as I know I have a good cushion of money in my bank to do so. This was pretty spot on for me.

    • Michelle

      Taurus loves creature comforts and good food, good wine and good art – which all tend to be expensive. 

  • Sherribil

    I’m Taurus 9th house. Hedonism rules 🙂

     Maybe I’ll delve more into power plays when I do more with the 8th house. Power scenarios would have to bring Pluto into the mix as well as any planets in the 8th house. Also, the sign on the 8th house cusp might show how you approach power, but you would have to look to the ruler of the 8th house (Venus in your case) for more information. Check out the post The Ruler of the 8th House in Houses: http://astrofix.net/2010/05/11/ruler-of-the-8th-house-in-houses/

  • I am a North Node 8th house Taurus and I totally agree. Cooking is sexy, I love fresh smells, I love for me and my partner to be fully naked during Sex, and there is no intense passion just sensuality and pure pleasure. Awesome description. I’d be interested to hear about how Taurus energy influences the Power aspect of this house.

    Taurus 1st and a little bit of 2nd. I am all what you said about the taurus in 1st. sensual… as in. i can’t help it. but i don’t like the stuck in the rut but theres some truth about that. im always being stuck in the rut.

    • In my mind Taurus is the sign of an artist. So many great artists have at least one planet in Taurus. You have the ascendant in Taurus – anything else?

        no mich, my asc is aries. but my 1st house is taurus. and there’s sedna and chiron inside it. er… im sort of using painting to heal myself. having chiron in taurus makes me think that i will be in arts for the rest of my life. no choice. lolz

        • That’s a lovely way to heal yourself.

          I don’t know if you know, but I have a BA in oil painting 🙂

          • Anonymous

            i know that you are an artist. i can feel it. the way your words are crafted etc. i tried to paint in oil once or twice, just in paper etc, i stopped. didin’t enjoy it. =)

            • People seem to either love oil painting or hate it.

              It’s so messy and complicated 🙂

              • Anonymous

                hehe yeah… i’ve discovered how messy and complicated it is. what i don’t like with it is that it could easily ruin my brushes. lol! but i did finish 3 oils paintings so far. not sure i will come back to it anytime soon. im having a blast with my water colors. do u still paint?

                • I haven’t done any serious painting in a while. I think I’m relegating it to a hobby: for fun only.

    “A world view that supports sensual excess. Philosophies that support lazy, passive, self-indulgence. Philosophies that support hedonism.”

    my taurus is on 9th, that’s sooo true, haha

    I’m really enjoying these Michelle. Taurus in the 2nd for me–i sure can’t believe how similar my chart is to Demi’s. I’ve never looked at it, but i forgot how many times it will say Demi when i’m looked at something from my chart. Lot’s of similarities to what you said, but maybe not as extreme as what is said. I’m not a hoarder for instance, but i have had some things for a very long time–and i can usually say, “oh i got that when i was still in highschool,” or whatever. Like tell you exactly when and where. I do like to wear comfy clothes when i’m at home, that’s true. I do like to sing, make things and do art–but i don’t do any of that for a living.

    • It’s possible that you could find a way to earn money from those 2nd house activities even if they are not your main job. I have a Libra 2nd house and I’ve made money from being an art model and from doing makeup for people- but neither as a main occupation.

  • Sploshing seems like it could also be a 5th house activity- depending on how serious the person takes it.

  • Christine

    Taurus ruling the 8th — Potters are pretty sexy, imo. And ‘sploshing’ sounds a lot dirtier than it actually is.

    •  Taurus 8th house I love it when a woman is cooking……

    I’m loving this series! I am a total Taurus 4th-5th houser…mostly 4th. As soon as I get home I change into my sweats & get comfty. My home is my sanctuary, and if it’s in a disarray I go crazy and have to get it back into order so that I can be at ease. Its one of my highest aspirations to have a beautiful home that is warm & inviting, embedded in nature & earthiness. To have a garden filled with herbs, plants & flowers, sunlight streaming through my windows, a body of water near by…brick, copper, wood, stained glass, good fresh food…ah! I am a super Sagittarius with 6 placements in the sign and Neptune is my only earth in Capricorn…but by north node is Taurus in the 4th! I’m a firm believer in the simple things in life bringing joy…I had the most amazing flan today and nearly went to heaven with each bite. I very much enjoy ‘doing nothing’ as well as being very active. I do love art as well, but pursue it very privately as well. Spot on! I can’t wait to see the rest of the signs in action 🙂

    • Thank you for reading my blog JChristine- I’m so happy that you like the series! I was thinking about my boyfriend when I wrote the 4th house description. He also has the North Node in Taurus in the 4th house. btw…that’s a lot of Sagittarius!
