It is an astrological fact that you ideally look like your ascendant. A.k.a. your rising sign. If you know your time of birth, this is very easy to establish via Astrodienst.
So if you are – say – a stealth Scorpio with Leo Rising, it’s auspicious to LOOK Leo. Even if your Scorpionic psyche shrivels at the mere thought of big hair, bling and a 20 metre radius ostentatious entitlement scent from a designer/model/celebrity you personally feel a psychological affinity with.
Taurus Rising is often blessed with a BIG presence, excellent boobage or pectorals and the (possibly) linked ability to wear ballgowns like others wear gray marle trackpants and Ugg boots. That is, the Taurus Rising person vibes relaxed in the get-up.
Mariah Carey, a Solar Aries, is a classic Taurus Rising. Note the juicy soft look to the skin. That’s not just product and photo-shop – Taurus Rising is Venus Ruled, a gift for the complexion. Elle MacPherson – also Solar Aries/Taurus Rising busts out a ball gown when she wants to say “hey bitches, I is still the Alpha” for whatever reason.
The Taurus Rising can work shoulders as an erogenous zone with big-goo-goo, long lashed cow-eyes to devastating effect. Voila Rita Hayworth – Libra with Taurus Rising.
Sculpted, plush lips are also a Taurus Rising/Venusian specialty item. Mae West (Leo, Taurus Rising) had hers immortalized in a couch designed by the Taurus Surrealist Salvador Dali.
And here she is reclining on her actual couch in full odalisque glory, the couch being – of course – the gravitational sector of the Taurus Universe. These folk transmit deep relaxation rays. Their presence is generally reassuring, rarely skittish or nerves inducing.
It’s true that sometimes the Taurus Rising chilled-out inscrutable vibe can be due to other substances – this Ascendant does totally value their relaxation and it’s a really bad idea to fuq with it. Snoop Dogg is Solar Libra, Taurus Rising. He has foundationed a whole empire based around his chill presence, music, weed and women.
Other male Taurus Risings have turned their enviable pecs + goo-goo eyes into an asset in the lucrative, albeit volatile, teen girls It Boy market. You know you’re dealing with a Taurus Rising guy, when they have a cute young bobby calf air. Taylor Lautner – Aqua with Taurus Rising fits that vibe.
As does The Beckham – he’s Triple Taurus – Sun/Mercury/Rising – and with the (he says) anal retentive fridge ordering to prove it.
Some mistake the Taurus Rising chill serenity for a “trample over my boundaries” invitation – a grave error. Nobody polices their borders like a Taurus Rising. Yes the grass is always greener in THEIR pasture but that doesn’t mean that YOU are going to be grazing in there alongside them. N.F.W. Exhibit: Serena Williams – Libra with Taurus Rising.
Taurus Rising peeps also have the knack of being able to look good whilst partying – seriously, they’re creatures of decadence as well as staunchness and they can actually do elegantly wasted in a way that most cannot. Drunk tennis, for example, as modeled by Capricorn/Taurus Rising Marianne Faithfull.
Taurus Rising types sometimes worry that their desire for tranquility and adoration of simple pleasures – Sex, Eating and Shopping – makes them dull compared to more adrenaline driven types, but no. Possibly it keeps some of them looking ludicrously youthful. This is Piscean Gloria Vanderbilt, aged 91, Taurus Rising, heiress, designer, writer of erotic novels and mother of CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
In an interview promoting her sexy book Obsession (written on her Uranus Return, aged 84) she told the New York Times:
“I’m always in love, that’s one of my secrets,” she said recently, sitting in the living room of her apartment on Beekman Place. “I’m determined to be the best I can be for as long as I can, and when I’m not, I have my plans. I walk a lot and watch my diet. That’s the key of it. I’ve always had a lot of energy.”
And…To judge from the book, at least, you can enhance your quest by scrubbing your torso with sea salt, bringing the skin to a glow before applying scented gardenia oil and a smidgen of honey aphrodisiac, so that you “can let loose shaking onto the breasts a goodly amount of chocolate sprinkles, which will adhere prettily.”
Okay so all the being ruled by Venus, Sex, Serenity and Chocolate Sprinkles on the Boobage in the world probably won’t produce her particular look – that’s money. Which happens to be the favorite color of Taurus Rising.
