Taurus as Relates to Musical Ability and Preferences, I am trying to feature music, as it relates to the zodiac, as a part of my blogging. I am currently working on a book entitled Music Under the Zodiac. Its main thrust is a complete and new discovered musical therapy system by key signature. I know that nowadays any price is difficult to afford. If you attend to my blogs regularly, of course whatever is there is free. You will at least have a taste of some of the chapters. It will sell for $2.99 when it becomes available.
Taurus (April 21-May 20)
Portrait of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
The Type of Music Preferred for Listening
Listener: This sign, in contrast to Aries, likes slower and melodic music. Keep in mind that while Aries is ruled by the dynamic planet, Mars; this next sign is ruled by the planet of beauty, Venus. Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet and the Overture of 1812 are two melodious selections that those born under this second sign of the zodiac would enjoy. In today’s vernacular it can be expressed as hard rock for Aries versus soft for Taurus. This “bullish” sign has great inner resources. The music can be slower, but yet an added firmness gives interest to the pace.
Preferred Instruments and Performing Style of Taurus
Performer: Because the ruling element of this sign is earth, this person is the grounded rhythmic anchor of any group. Thus, Taurus does well in ensembles be it a band, with chamber music, a Broadway ensemble or of course, an orchestra.
In opposition to Aries, those born under this sign are usually not naturally a showmen. Rather, they provide the solid base on which a group may be built. Instruments of interest for Taurus are the double bass, bass guitar, tuba, baritone, or bassoon- all “foundation instruments”. The melodic percussion section, like the xylophone or marimba, are also of interest. Of course you can add any instrument that is played with beautiful melody. Unlike Aries, this second sign of the zodiac prefers to practice at a slower tempo. This is fine at first but, if the music specifies, increase your speed. For this purpose the metronome is helpful.
Edgar Degas, L’Orchestre de L’Opera, (1868) Bassoons appeal to those born under this second zodiac sign of spring. They are, what I call, a “foundation instrument”- the backbone of any group.
This sign can develop a fine technique. By nature, they are diligent workers. Taurus has a spiritual inclination that draws him to fine arts. This is true of all people with Venus as their “ruling planet”. Happy Birthday!
