How to Read Your Taurus Stellium

Every Taurus stellium is going to be expressed differently for each person and how you experience it will depend on many factors, including the state of your entire natal chart.

But, you can get a start reading your stellium in Taurus by following the steps below.

  1. First, notice which planets are included in your Taurus stellium.

    This will show you which areas of your mind and soul are shaped by this earth sign and which parts of your psyche will be melding and working together.
  1. See what house or houses the planets of your Taurus stellium sit in.

    The house or houses involved will shed light on which parts of your life your stellium may be most evident. Which territories in your life will your dominant sign of the bull shine through?
  1. Check the aspect grid to see if there are any major aspects made to the planets of your Taurus stellium.

    Aspects are special angles made between two points on an astrological chart that add another layer of complexity to your stellium. Planets in aspect have a relationship with one another and this can introduce friendly or tense connections from planets elsewhere in your chart to your stellium, depending on the angles made.

Transiting Taurus Stellium

Among your natal planets aren’t the only place where you can spot a stellium in Taurus. Anyone can have multiple planets in their sign of the bull through the currently moving planets.

In astrology, the currently moving planets are called transiting planets. They continuously move and connect with the signs, houses, and planets in your own birth chart and have the potential to usher in change and transitions to your life.

A transiting Taurus stellium could have the same consequences as a natal stellium in Taurus, but with one huge difference. Its influence is temporary and will only last as long as the stellium holds together in the sign. 

A transiting Taurus stellium can spark changes, behaviors, and feelings that pop up in your life, but its influence will weaken and eventually end as the planets of the transiting Taurus stellium move on to other areas of your chart.
