Sapphire, emerald and ruby for a happy Taurus
The month of April belongs to the sun sign Taurus. The second sign in the zodiac calendar, Taurus is ruled by Venus – the goddess of love, beauty and pleasure. Like the mascot, the bull, Taurus people are believed to be bull-headed and very stubborn. The Taurus sun sign is closely related to the Earth element and hence they are known to be down-to-earth and practical people.
Taurus are well-known for their steadfast and strong personalities. People born under this sun sign are those you can depend on the most during a crisis. They are calm, strong and disciplined and can turn any negative situation around. But their inability to be flexible in situations and to accept different viewpoints stick out like sore thumbs.
Taurus makes best friends for life. They are lovable, loyal and extremely faithful to the friendship. They also make for good life partners—they are appreciative of their better-halves and are also very romantic. They will make the spouse feel loved at all times. Work-wise, Taurus are known to be industrious, efficient and always ready to take a risk.
The gemstones for Taurus include sapphire, amber, rose quartz, emerald, garnet and aventurine. Sapphire is the traditional birthstone for the month of April, and comprises many varieties of corundum, including ruby. Taurus can use sapphire stone to achieve inner peace and spiritual awakening.
