Taurus Birthstones: April 21 To May 21 - The BullThe astrological sign for Taurus is the bull and the birthstone for Taurus is the Emerald, but there are other stones which are also prominent in this star sign. Remember to only wear these if you wish them to bring influence into your life.
The tradition of giving gifts of jewelry with corresponding birthstones has become a centuries old tradition, and over these years even the traditional stones have changed somewhat.
For example if you are born in May, you are still Taurean, however the traditional stone was Agate, and for April this is Sapphire. Modern times dictate that Taureans with birthdays in May have special connections with the Emerald and in April this is a diamond, so I suppose you can take your pick.
If you are searching for a gift for a friend or loved one and you are unsure of what stone to choose, perhaps you can take the nature and personality of the person in question and select the best stone from these choices, you believe fits their persona. Another tip is that Rose Quartz is the energy stone for Taurus, while the other stones mentioned are power stones - they are essentially for luck.
People born under the sign of Taurus are ruled by the planet Venus and this is the 1st sign of Earth Triplicity as well as the 2nd sign of the Tropical Zodiac. They are a sign which represents purposefulness and determination and this is reflected in the type of birthstones which are representative of the star sign.
Taureans reflect the earth element and are not fond of change, so if the friend or loved one you are buying a birthstone for has expressed a fondness for the Emerald, they may not be terribly delighted to receive an Agate, even as a gift. Make sure you know a person well before you purchase a gift of this nature for them. They are stubborn by nature and may not even believe you if you tell them that agate is the traditional birthstone for this sign. Remember they don't like to be challenged, rushed or bullied into believing anything.
Their flowers are violets or pink roses, although mine are definitely not and their colors are earth shades and turquoise which mine definitely are. Lucky numbers are supposedly 6 and 4, so I shall have to try those numbers if I ever play the lottery.
Taureans also find it very difficult to rely on other people and for this reason tend to be very dependable. They have a tendency to apathy or indolence, but wearing yellow will offset this. There is also an inalienable quest in these people for personal security, and any spiritual truths are only revealed to them by material efforts. They are practical, reliable and tend to be strong physically as well as mental, but can be very stubborn, conservative and even possessive.
