Films of the Zodiac: Taurus

What movies represent the spirit of Taurus you ask? Well, Taurus is a tricky sign. It’s an Earth sign, probably the MOST earthy Earth sign. It represents not only the stubbornness of the bull, but also the immovable nature of the Earth. It also represents the bounty that the Earth provides. As the symbol of wealth, taurus loves the finer things in life. Think of earning money and enjoying spending every dollar. Stable, immovable, dependable, responsible, unwilling to bend or change. The movies I feel exemplify this big ole bitch of a sign are…

Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron

I had a dream like this once.

I chose this movie because of its wild and untamed natural setting, as well as its title character, Spirit. He’s an untamed stallion that never compromises his wild heart. He’s one stubborn asshole, that’s for sure. He doesn’t let anyone ride him, except the equally wild Little Creek, a Lakota who was also captured by the U.S Calvary. Both are put through a lot of hardship in the hopes of breaking them, and neither ever gives up hope of returning to the comfort of the great wide plains they call home.

The Great Gatsby (2013)

Turn up for what, old sport?

Another aspect of taurus is its love of fine things. No movie screams pure opulence like The Great Gatsby. The parties, the mansions, the GOLD. Everything here screams ‘I’m protecting myself in the cave that is my money’. Like a Taurus, Jay Gatsby is an incredibly stubborn character who will literally not change no matter what, even when Daisy is staring him in the face begging him to understand. Also like a Taurus, he is durable on the surface, but underneath he is a soft hearted individual. He’s not suited to play the game like his compatriots, although he definitely wants to.
