Sign Combinations: Sun in Taurus and Taurus Ascendant
Two people with the same Sun sign will share some similar traits. However, not all Taurus Sun individuals present the same way, and that’s where their Ascendant sign (or Rising sign) comes into play.
The Sun sign is also modified by the Sun’s aspects and house position, and a full interpretation of a person’s natal chart can be illuminating. Even so, Sun-Ascendant combinations can reveal interesting differences (and similarities) between people born under the same Sun. You’ll find the Taurus Sun, Taurus Rising combination interpreted below.

What does it mean to have the Sun in Taurus AND a Taurus Ascendant?
Sun in Taurus – Taurus Ascendant Combination
Earthy personality with an earthy vibe.
Presents strength yet gentleness and calm.
Description: The combination of a Taurus Sun and a Taurus Ascendant makes for a very reliable, comfortable, and authentic person. The way they come across in first impressions is very true to how they are in their everyday lives, making them feel naturally trustworthy and dependable. They have a strong, quietly confident presence that feels very welcoming.
This combination exudes a calming and down-to-earth energy. They seem (and are!) very emotionally steady, which makes people around them feel comfortable and that they can rely on them. Taurus-Taurus are the types of people you feel you can open up to easily and quickly–you sense you’ll get great advice from them due to their ability to see things rationally and logically.
They love to luxuriate and come across as very relaxed, making them the types of people who feel almost immediately like an old friend.
Being highly sensual, they are often huggers, even with people they are first meeting. Physical touch can be their love language, and they exude warmth. Further, their warm and inviting first impressions readily draw people to them.
Despite this, they have a harder time letting new people into their inner world, primarily due to their resistance to change. Their friends need to gradually weave their way into their world and find a way into their highly routined life!
Stubbornness is second nature to a Taurus, and this combination makes that clear to anyone around them. They do not want their well-curated life to be disrupted, and they will make it known. When it comes to being asked to do something they do not want to do, they will not put on a front. They are not afraid to say “no.” At the end of the day, they want to feel safe and secure, and change or uncertainty can often make them feel uneasy.
Similarly, they are very confident in their beliefs and ideas and will easily argue on their behalf. They give the impression that they have it all figured out due to their steadfast attitude towards nearly everything they do. Confident that they know the best way to do things, people clue into this vibe and are confident in them as well.
With their tendencies towards focusing on logic and realism, they often DO have it all figured out. However, sometimes they may get stuck in their stubbornness and are unable to adapt to new ideas and methods quickly.
A Taurus is nothing if not honest and reliable. With the Sun and Ascendant in this sign, they both come across that way and can back it up with genuine dependability. They are very steady and supportive, making the Taurus-Taurus person easy to trust with responsibilities and with people’s friendship.
Key Traits of this combination
You will find most or all of the following traits, depending on how the natal chart is configured:
- Emotionally steady
- Strong and stubborn, yet gentle and calming
If the Taurus Sun-Taurus Rising person has the Sun in the 1st house of their natal chart, they have powerful personal presence. People notice them! While they give off a gentle, calming, warm vibe, they’re also someone people feel they can rely on or turn to. In practice, they’re gentle leaders.
If, instead, the Taurus Sun is in the 12th house, this is a more retiring personality. They’re still strong and stubborn, but they’re not quite as noticeable or comfortable in their skin as the Sun in the first house Taurus-Taurus people. The Taurus Sun in the 2nd house, similarly, isn’t as “out there,” being more rooted and introverted.
Whichever is the case, the Taurus Sun-Taurus Ascendant person’s Venus position will tell more of the story, refining the picture further.
Likes: quietly taking the lead, doing their own thing, creating harmony, keeping the peace, eating and enjoying themselves, some routine, predictability.
Dislikes: uncertainty, unpredictability, being told what to do, changing course too quickly.
What’s the difference between the Sun and Ascendant sign?
Your Taurus Sun sign traits are your core personality characteristics. When someone meets you for the first time, they more likely see your Ascendant attributes, which in this case is also Taurus!
- Same elements: Taurus is an earth sign (Earth signs are grounded, earthy, and practical).
- Same modes: Taurus is a fixed sign (Fixed signs are determined and resist change).
- Compatible elements and same modes: With the Sun and Ascendant sharing the same sign, what you see is what you get! People often get the right impression of you from the jump. This also helps you feel more comfortable in your own skin. Of course, there’s more to your story, and that’s described by other factors in your chart, such as your Moon sign, but it helps that you represent your core personality traits when you present yourself to the world since there is less chance of misunderstandings.
Taurus Sun Sign
There is something very solid about Taurus natives, no matter what the rest of their charts say about them. Though they are dependable most of the time, this generally shows itself more in habit than in outright helpfulness.
Taurus natives are sensual folk–and this includes sex, but extends to pleasures in all areas: they delight in the sensual pleasures of food, a comfortable blanket, a richly colored aquarium to look at, the smell of flowers or spring rain, pleasing melodies, and so forth… Read more about Taurus Sun.

Slow, steady, and capable are adjectives that we can safely attach to individuals born with a Taurus Ascendant. These natives have tremendous stamina and staying power. They’re often quite loyal to those they care about. Although they generally don’t come on strong, they have personal presence; and they fairly radiate stability.
The sign on the Ascendant generally reveals how people start anything new. Taurus, by nature, is resistant to change. In truth, it can be difficult to sway Taurus rising natives–they’re often rather stubborn and fixed in their ways. Their first responses are to feel things out, not in the way a Pisces might attune to their environment, but in the realm of the five senses.
They have well-developed sense of smell and touch, and respond to the material world… Read more about Taurus Rising (Taurus Ascendant).
