The Best Things About Being an Aries-Taurus...
- Just remember that when you're involved with an Aries, you're involved with an explorer, a risk-taker, a thrill seeker and a pioneer.
- When you're involved with a Taurus, you're involved with a sensualist, a nature lover, an indulger and a money lover.
- Among the strongest combination of signs when it comes to meeting goals because of their reliable persistence, those born under the influence of both astrological signs are able to initiate and successfully complete projects and activities.
- Aries is ruled by the planet Mars. In ancient Roman mythology, Mars (and his Greek equivalent, Aries) was the god of war. He was bold, aggressive, energetic and courageous. On the negative side, he was impulsive, compulsive and quick-tempered, and he could give in to anger and a will for destruction. Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus. In ancient Roman mythology, Venus (and her Greek equivalent, Aphrodite) was the goddess of love, beauty and pleasure. She represented joy, happiness and appreciation of beautiful things. On the negative side, her appreciation for sweets and luxury could result in overindulgence. Mars was active and high-spirited, full of physical energy and vitality; the Aries/Taurus-born reflect his leadership and initiative. They are strongly independent and determined and have the physical stamina to stay their course. They have a great love for culture. It's important for them to feel good. They often maintain extensive art collections and tend to be artistic themselves, sometimes through singing. They enjoy partnership and marriage, and use their charm -- as well as their focused perseverance -- to work toward harmony and personal security. An individual born on the Aries/Taurus cusp has the potential for great satisfaction in life, thanks to the balance of great action and great will.
The element associated with Aries is Fire, and the element associated with Taurus is Earth. Fire Signs are physical beings who tend to respond to the world through action. Earth Signs tend to respond to the world by examining the worth of each possible response. The combination of these two elements provides a solid foundation to pioneer uncharted territories.
The Aries/Taurus tends to want what they want, when they want it. The Aries side of their character needs to accept that this isn't always possible and stop butting their heads, ram-like, into the nearest wall. Aries/Taurus people can also be extremely patient and dependable. Their ambition ensures that they are hardworking and helpful to others. The blending of their elements, earth and fire, gives them a general focus on building things and seeing their ideas through to completion. However, the fixed opinions of the Aries/Taurus can be surprisingly unchangeable, even when they have discovered a flaw in their logic.
In their leisure time, Aries/Taurus tend to play as hard as they work at the office. They greatly enjoy athletics, as sports give them a positive and healthy outlet for some of their natural aggression. They appreciate both individual challenge, especially aerobics, as well as the group challenge of football and soccer. Aries/Taurus tend to enjoy outdoor activities, such as hiking, that allow them to get close to the earth. Conversely, their appreciation of art and culture sends them to the opera and exclusive galleries. The Aries/Taurus cusp individual could possibly be an expert rock climber, kayaker or skier. Intense activity and drive channeled through a great love and respect for the natural beauty of the outdoors is often seen with this astrological aspect.
The great strength of the Aries/Taurus-born is in their energy, initiative and courage. Their ability to take a project and go with it is unparalleled. Their more earthy side brings out their stability and perseverance. Methodical determination enables them to be productive when others have long since given up. With the combination of fire and earth, they are one of the most dynamic, stable and passionate characters of the zodiac.
April 19 to April 23
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. It represents birth and the first realization of self. Taurus, the second sign of the Zodiac, moves beyond what is represented by Aries. Taurus begins to physically explore the world. Aries tend to display strong leadership, and their extroverted and assertive nature lets them eagerly lead the new cycle of the zodiac. Taureans tend to be richly sensual, enjoying the good things in life and the physical pleasures that come with them. Together, these two astrological signs denote an active and dynamic pioneer who responds to the world by examining the worth of each possible response. The ability to follow through and complete projects that others may have abandoned through boredom or because it was too difficult is blended with the sign of new beginnings. This promises a tremendous amount of fulfilling adventure and achievement for those born on the Aries/Taurus cusp.
The astrological symbol of Aries is the Ram. Like the popular conception of the Ram, Aries people are able to accomplish a lot by sheer energy and force of will, ramming their way to their goals. In this way, Aries exemplifies the cardinal quality assigned to it. The astrological symbol of Taurus is the Bull. The term bullheaded applies to Taureans in both its positive and negative connotations, and Taurus exemplifies the fixed quality assigned to it. The Aries/Taurus can be blunt, and they are bold and strong. They are among the strongest combination of signs when it comes to meeting goals because of their reliable persistence. Those born under the influence of both astrological signs are able to initiate and successfully complete projects and activities.

Attractions: As with all cusp people, they are attracted to other cusps-Taurus/Gemini(May 19-24) and Scorpio/Sagittarius(November 19-24) cusps especially.

As with all people born under a cusp, the Aries/Taurus person is of two conflicting element, in this case it is fire and earth.
These people will show the fiery forwardness and willfulness of Aries but also the practicality, endurance, and nurturing of Taurus.
They have markedly dominant personalities.
They become very uncomfortable if forced to submit to another control.
They are highly strategic in thought and action.
They are not in a hurry to see results, therefore they are masters of thorough and painstaking preparation.
They must learn to back off and allow things to happen as they will.
Try to be more sensitive to the feelings of those around them.
Born on the cusp of Aries and Taurus, the rulers of this combination are both Mars and Venus. Intrinsic in this mixture is the aesthetic romantic love typified by Venus and the passionate, action-orientation of Mars. Such people must feel deeply the focal point of their life and pursue it boldly. This cusp complements actors, actresses, fashion designers and dancers who feel that the beauty and drama of life springs forth from the deepest urges of creation.
The Fire element of Aries and the Earth element of Taurus can be both constructive and destructive. The constructive side of the sign shows a harnessing of energy to support and promote domestic existence. The Taurus side of this cusp has the expectation of creating something for posterity...the creation of children, the establishment of relationships and business are all equally important in the life of this combination...and chivalry reigns supreme.
The down side of this cusp demonstrates itself in burnout. The practical aspects of creating life here on Earth can stifle or even obliterate the inspiration inherent in this combination. Frustration occurs when the desire to propel the dream is thwarted by those of lesser motivation or real world restrictions. The typical "bull in a china shop" syndrome can manifest itself under difficult auspices and the desire to tear down structures that do not support the tender side of the personality become evident. Competition for a mate can take over the mentality of this cuspian until victory or failure is achieved. Children born of this combination need to be encouraged to pursue activities and studies that they love.
The Martian carry-over from Aries gives this cusp an impetuous touch that can become both powerful and dangerous through the self-willed and often stubborn nature of Taurus, with its emotional and pleasure-loving Venus in control. When these cuspians act impulsively, then their plans suffer, but they seldom give up the ship. Having started out as go-getters, they become bullheaded and determined see it through. Often, they will take up enterprises just to prove that they can put them across...and they usually do. Because of this, they should exert their powers along honest and worthwhile lines. Their self-esteem is exceeded only by their urge for self-gratification, which will make them unreasonable and overbearing unless they develop self-control.
Briefly summed, this mixture is an excellent blend of natures, provided a person chooses undertakings that are not only worth the effort involved, but also worthy of it. Here is a chance to turn initial drive into sustained power, particularly because those born on this cusp are suited to all the occupations given under Taurus, but should have greater prospects in those fields than the average person of that sign.
Those of the Aries/Taurus combination should always remember, however, that their strength does not lie in the creation of ideas, but in their development, which is all the more reason for choosing well and wisely in the first place. It is important that the Aries/Taurus individual learn how to "back off" and allow things to happen as they will. It is also necessary for he or she to be more sensitive to the feelings of others. As with all cusp individuals, these cuspians tend to be attracted to others born on the cusp...particularly those who fall within the Taurus/Gemini and Scorpio/Sagittarius combinations.
Notable Aries/Taurus cuspians include: Adolf Hitler; Catherine the Great; Vladimir Lenin; William Shakespeare; Catherine de Medici; and Barbara Streisand
