Taurus - Llewellyn Worldwide by juliedillon Taurus - Llewellyn Worldwide by juliedillon
Here is the next image I did for the Llewellyn Worldwide 2014 Astrology Calendar. :)

Taurus: April 20 to May 21. Fixed Earth sign. Loyal, steady, receptive, sensuous, likes beautiful things. Colors - The colors of leaves and earth in May: emerald greens and browns. In tune with nature, and as such likes gardening and farming. These are people that enjoy making things: artists, craftspeople, bakers, musicians, gardeners, etc. I chose to depict Taurus as a strong, beautiful farm girl who loves working in the dirt but also appreciates a manicure and pretty jewelry. (Although it is kind of dumb to plant lettuces right next to trees, but I birches are one of the symbols of the Taurus and I really wanted to include them ;) )

You can preorder the calendar if you like, or just check out the rest of Llewellyn Worldwide's offerings at

My father was a taurus and that is so much him! Uhm, apart from gender. And the hair. ;-)
shykitten34 Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2015
its kind of funny but I'm a Taurus may 3 but I'm almost the complete opposite of all of this. I like blues, grays, and blacks. I hate the summer, can tolerate the spring and LOVE the winter. I can't do artistic or crafty things at all I rarely bake and I can keep two or three plants alive.

Don't misunderstand I like the picture it's nice I just saying, I'm a bad Taurus (I think I was born under the wrong sign).

Well done!
Simply gorgeous!
This would explain why I love to hike and camp a lot! :-)
And I love to cook too!

I'm a proud Taurus, and in all honesty the women of my ancestry probably looked like that. If I had more muscle and less pudge I would too!

Sometimes painfully practical, are Taureans. I know. I get bitched at constantly about it. Oh, and I can't keep a cactus alive to save my own life. I can make any other plant thrive. But a cactus, which needs no attention at all? I kill the poor bastards. I literally love them to death. lol. I think everything needs attention but apparently this is not true. Who'da thunk?!! I sure didn't.

I actually like this interpretation you have here. She's a little rounder. Happier. Closer to the natural wealth of the earth than the ethereal fairy-like people most often depicted. I'm a bean pole myself, but I do indeed like your interpretation, Julie.

I can look back at my own wild gallery of Nature inspired artwork and say, "Yeah. That's a Taurus." I've got satin and ribbons to flowers and dark decaying earth and then chaotic color patterns.

I liken us to Toreador Kindred. "We're the sexy ones." *wink*

juliedillon Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2013
Really? I don't see any resemblance, but okay.
GingerFoxy Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2013  Professional
Definitely a very good job on the brief.
I'm a Taurus. And seeing the colour green and the nature theme constantly in the descriptions always makes me groan... Aquarius and some other signs always have something cool. For me it's always grass and being a sometimes stubborn hippie. Meh, I say!
Obviously, not your fault. I'm mostly grumbling about the star sign descriptions. Taurus tends to have the least variation. Although recently I came across a chemistry zodiac, that was cool. Taurus was matched with Titanium there.
juliedillon Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2013
Well, I have to go with the descriptions and represent the symbols of each sign to an extent, since that was the requirement of the assignment. I know some Scorpios were miffed, too, but again, I can't stray too far. And in a few cases where I *did* stray a bit, I got complaints for that, as well. ;) Personally I identify with Taurus' themes and colors and traits a lot more than that of my star sign (Aquarius). Maybe we can switch? XD
GingerFoxy Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2013  Professional
Oooh, definitely a tempting trade! ...we just have to figure out how it can be done :giggle:
TrueformValor Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love this! Even without much horticulture knowledge I somehow keep my potted plants alive. *Taurus for ever! <3*
silvanoir Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013  Hobbyist
I am a lady Taurus and I like gardening :)
IvyHeil Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013
i don't like this one :(
GDupons Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013
I am a Taurus. It's true, I have the same figure like the girl. But gardening is not my thing.
paulinca Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
awww I was hoping for some glorious maleness like that aries lol. But i understand, female taureans are awesome. Great job on the depiction!
Gryffgirl Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2013
That is my husband's sign! Very down to earth indeed! :iconlovegreenplz:
reptilecobra13 Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2013
I'm a Taurus and a farm kid. Love it.
JediMase Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013
It's not dumb to plant 'em there - they can tolerate shade.
MidnyhtNoon Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013
I am a Taurus and that is almost my exact shape. It has my appreciation. Shamelessly we love the good things in life x3
swiftgold Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love this, it looks great :D I grew up thinking I was Gemini, with the constellation on my wall and everything, but it wasn't until my 20s that I heard about the cusp thing and that I was Taurus, too. Suddenly it seemed to fit me a whole lot better (especially the utter stupid stubbornness, heh). Now if I can just keep my plants alive this year...
B-rad-Tyga Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013
I love being a Taurus. It fits me well :)
str4yk1tt3n Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013
This is lovely.
AquaMind Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Soo pretty :D
Sorry, I just want to ask. Why she doesn't has any horn like other zodiac, she is taurus the bull? :|
juliedillon Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013
I didn't give every sign their animal/symbolic aspects, just a few. It didn't seem to fit with this particular image. :)
AquaMind Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Hehe..I think you're right, sorry again :)
Keep your hardworks, can't wait to see the rest of them :D

keight Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013
Love those aurochs behind her. This whole series is beautifully done and I do apologize for not commenting on each one. Turn of the year craziness going on here.

:D I'm one of those Aries/Taurus types; if born a minute later, I would have also had different ancestral given names.
juliedillon Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013
Thank you so much! :heart: I'm really glad you like them so far :D
