Taurus Moons are down-to-Earth and have a mellow attitude no matter what the Sun Sign.

The Moon is traditionally known to be "exalted" in Taurus. Taurus is an earth sign, and that's feminine and thus receptive. And the Moon is the receiver of the Sun's light, so Taurus is a synchronous home for all the Moon represents -- responding, instincts, feelings and feelings.

Taurus Moons are more responsive than active, and that's why they often seem passive, immovable.  They want to feel sure of the steps forward and can be ultra conservative about change. 

You'll be at home when the Moon is in Taurus (transiting). 

The Comfort Zone

Taurus generally is a sign that likes the familiar, the cozy and stable. The Moon shows what makes us feel secure, so for Moon Taurus, it's all about building a solid life, with solid people.

Taurus is fixed energy, and that's the current of settling in, and fleshing things out. Once Taurus Moon fixates on something -- or someone -- that goal becomes the stabilizing focus. 

It can be hard to budge a Taurus Moon from his or her course because there's so much determination there. Yes, they're stubborn and bull-headed, especially you're trying to get them to welcome a change.

And yet, Taurus Moons are pleasure-seekers, and so, a pleasure to be around. Because they value relaxation, they make it a priority and fully relish it. That has a jovial effect on the mood of the moment, and many good memories can be shared. 

To warm up to a Taurus Moon, invite them to a sensual feast of any kind -- something that leaves the senses buzzing long afterward. For hints look at balancing the earth elements when there's too much, or too little.

A Taurus bogged down in stuff and emotional baggage becomes inert. Taurus-stye depression tends to lead to overindulgence and lying around.
