Planets, Signs and Houses: Zodiacal Signs Described and Attributes of Various Ascendant and Signs, Chapter III, Part - 7


Dr. Shanker Adawal

Physical Characteristics

The neck will be emphasized. It is usually heavy, especially in later life. Some-times it is unusually beautiful. Just as the bull has curls on the front of the head, so the Taurus native often has a particularly curly lock of hair which will not lie down. He is generally thick set and gives an impression of being solidly and weightily earthed. Movements will be deliberate.


Parts affected may be throat, glands, and generative organs.

Way of living

The Taurus person is at his best in any sphere, where his natural urges can be reasonably expressed. He is therefore better in a position of trusted responsibility, rather than as a go-getter, better in country pursuits than in town, better where he can deal with art and beauty and nature rather than where he is upset by too much movement. The physical emphasis is on his throat; hence he will often be a naturally good singer. Since he is practical and likes solid possessions, he will like to invest his money in house property or interest himself in building.


Gardening, painting, sculpture, music-hobbies, which mean sitting still for a long time, embroidery and so on.

Taurus Ascendant – Benefic & Malefic

Benefic – Sun and Saturn

Malefic - Moon, Jupiter and Venus

Neutrals – Mars

Saturn alone is fully capable of independently conferring Raja Yoga effects on the native.

Jupiter, Venus, Moon, if placed in, or conjunct with lords of 2nd or 7th house cause Maraka evil.

Planets for Taurus Ascendant – Karaka and Maraka

Sun- A natural malefic lord of a angle Sun ceases to be malefic and gives good results, if strong, in regard to comforts advancement amenities, residence, etc. If, however, when it is weak, it would give mental unrest, disease opposition to the public, disfavor from government and bad relation with the relatives.

Moon- Even though being lord of an evil house its affliction would not be a desirable feature in strength it would give good results.

Mars- As lord of the 12th and 7th houses Mars will give effects of the 7th house. Since it is a natural malefic it would cease to be so. If strong and well aspected Mars will give nice results in regard to business matters, wife and government affairs. If weak it will give opposite results in regard to these affairs and would be particularly bad for health.

Mercury- Mercury will primarily give results in regard to the fifth house where its Mooltrikona sign falls. If strong it would give success in examinations of all types, success in planning, authorship, advancement and honour to progeny and the like. If weak Mercury would give the contrary results. Here also it should be noted that if Mercury is influenced by Venus and Saturn benefic for this Ascendant and is strong it would give still better results in the financial domain.

Jupiter- Being lord of 8th and 11th it would not be conducive to health affairs particularly when weak. If Jupiter is strong it would however, be conducive to income and would boost the wealth and honour of elder brother.

Venus- Venus is lord of the Ascendant and the sixth house. Being lord of Ascendant it should prima facie give good results. But it is not the case. Since its Mooltrikona sign falls in the sixth house it has to give the results of the sixth house. Hence it is somewhat bad.

The father of Indian astrology has for the above reasons classified it as bad for Taurus Ascendant people, hence affliction of Venus would be bad for the health prospects of the native, but somewhat good for his financial prospects.

Saturn- As lord of a angle and a trine Saturn in its major period and sub period will give nice results in regard to finances, promotion favour from government, advancement of father etc., if strong, If very weak it can give contrary results also.
