Taurus' Ailments: Sore throats
Taurus' Strengths: Determination
Taurus' Weaknesses: Belief that taking medicine is giving up and seeing a doctor is a sign of failure. Stubborn Bulls sometimes have a hard time accepting medical advice and may try DIY cures or just ignoring the problem away.
Taurus thrives on routine and loves going to the same classes, where they have their spot, their instructor, and a sense of exactly how the class will unfold. Taurus also thrives on a challenge and loves evidence they're getting better. Signing up for a race and using a fitness tracker are great ways to keep a Taurus moving. The Bull always feels good after a sweat session, but getting them motivated can be tough, so easy strategies to get moving are always welcome.
Ruled by the throat, Taurus may find sore throats and colds dragging them down—especially when they find themselves "swallowing" their truth to fit in. While a sore throat is worth a doctor visit, Bulls should check in with their emotions when they're under the weather. Sometimes, not speaking up or holding back can lead to getting sick. Finally, Bulls don't win a prize for suffering—if you feel sick, take a sick day!
Persistent and hardworking, Bulls tend to suck it up. But sometimes, actually acknowledging emotion can help fix the issue. Here are ten ways that Bulls can beat the blues:
Mint: Not only is this a helpful herb for clearing up coughs and colds, which frequently plague Bulls, but the refreshing aroma can improve memory and raise alertness, which are key for keeping a Taurus' head in the game after hours of work.
Thyme: The invigorating scent is key for lifting mood and for making Bulls feel more energetic—great after a long weekend.
Violet: The pretty purple blossoms can make a great, throat-calming tea, helpful for Taureans.
Catnip: As an herb for indigestion, catnip is a perfect first step for Bulls, whose love of luxury sometimes leads them to overindulge.
