Our sun, moon and rising signs show different sides of ourselves, with the rising will reflecting what others see in us, the moon sign showing us how we heal and the sun sign representing how we present ourselves to the world. Taurus sun, moon, and rising signs reflect the same practical, dependable energy of the zodiac sign but express it differently.

The major differences between Taurus sun, moon and risings

One thing these placements all have in common is their desire to have security and stability. Taurus is a Venusian sign that enjoys the finer things in life. It is a placement filled with creative potential and innate talent. It is the second sign in the zodiac in which we can see the powerful and courageousness of preceding sign Aries, but more stubborn. After all, this is a sign that is in opposition to Scorpio, ruled by Mars. 


Taurus is a fixed modality, meaning that conflicts will surely arise if they do not get their way. They can be formidable opponents and are strategic when focused on success, but they can also be the most romantic people to be around. Learning to admire their gifts and be more confident in who they are will open them up to bountiful opportunities since they will learn to rely on themselves and not seek a partner to make them feel complete.

Taurus sun

The sun in Taurus emanates Venusian energy, rooted in a deep yearning for security and stability. Taurus finds joy in art, shopping, music, and all things Venus. This sign symbolizes and craves luxury. 

While Taurus may seem preoccupied with security, they are willing to work hard to attain it. Taurus can appear lazy to others, but only when they are not passionate about what they're doing. They will go above and beyond to be the best when they find the project, vocation or subject they are passionate about with ambition only a Capricorn can rival. Taurus is relentless when it comes to their success — if someone gets in their way, they will do their best to prevail. 

Even though others may envy them due to their looks or success, this placement may have the natives may struggle with self-doubt and low self-esteem despite their ability to shine. However, with maturity and time, they can learn to love and protect themselves and their energy. Taurus is a sign that can make a statement, revealing their potential to others.

Taurus moon

When it comes to finding their place in the world, this is a hard-working sign that will know how imperative it is to be patient. The foundation they desire will be sturdy, which makes them highly selective when making decisions, and they will opt to play the long game. Because this is a Venus-ruled placement, the native wants a partner to help balance their need for stability and show them emotional security. The protection they want from their partner is that they want to be shielded from insecurities. The Taurus moon will not tolerate games by those who seek a romantic adventure with them because this will not compute for them. 

In their career, they will also prefer something that will help them potentially build in the long term. Temporary employment or short-term projects are foreign to them because they desire something long-lasting. The Taurus moon receives emotional validation when they see their hard work take off, their income grows and they know that their financial decisions are correct. They take great pride in themselves and the work that they do.

Taurus rising

Natives with this placement will be known for their beauty. This Venus-ruled rising sign exudes charm, allure and magnetism. Those with this placement are imaginative and ready to break boundaries and create new foundations, especially when helping the collective. It is easy for the natives to lead others because they have massive charisma that may appeal to the masses. They are loyal, committed and always willing to work hard to learn something new that can help them rise above. 


Taurus risings are independent spirits. Nevertheless, they enjoy being loved and getting swept up in romantic adventures. An ideal partner puts them in the spotlight, sees the real them, is loyal and feels proud of who they are. 

Finding a good routine can be challenging for the natives because they may constantly be second-guessing themselves; however, when they feel confident and empowered, they can move with grace and establish perfection. They are a contradiction. While others may view them as emotional and sensitive souls, they will also see the Taurus rising's resilience and courage, especially when fighting for their dreams.
