Taurus Talks

As the Sun moves into Taurus, here are some quotes from a few famous names that reflect their Sun in Taurus and their Moon sign too - enjoy!

I don't have a sense of entitlement or that I deserve this. You'd be surprised at the lack of competition between nominees - I think a lot of it's imposed from the outside. Can I have my champagne now?  Cate Blanchett, Actress – Sun in Taurus/Moon in Aries

I find it a great antidote... lipstick and mirrors and hairspray.  Joanna Lumley, Actress – Sun in Taurus/Moon in Taurus

He that has eyes to see and ears to hear may convince himself that no mortal can keep a secret. If his lips are silent, he chatters with his fingertips; betrayal oozes out of him at every pore.  Sigmund Freud, Psychologist – Sun in Taurus/Moon in Gemini

I recorded the song live in front of an orchestra, and yes, I was very moved, I was in tears.  Burt Bacharach, Composer – Sun in Taurus/Moon in Cancer

I was a personality before I became a person - I am simple, complex, generous, selfish, unattractive, beautiful, lazy and driven.  Barbra Streisand, Singer/Actress – Sun in Taurus/Moon in Leo

For the first time ever, overweight people outnumber average people in America. Doesn't that make overweight the average then? Last month you were fat, now you're average - hey, let's get a pizza!  Jay Leno, Comedian/TV host – Sun in Taurus/Moon in Virgo

I just cash in on the fact that I'm good looking, and I've got a nice figure and girls like me.  Sid Vicious, Punk singer – Sun in Taurus/Moon in Libra

Sometimes, when I'm alone, I put on six inch heels and wear nothing else and dance around in front of the mirror and do my little stripper dance.  Tori Spelling, Actress – Sun in Taurus/Moon in Scorpio

Straight-away the ideas flow in upon me, directly from God, and not only do I see distinct themes in my mind's eye, but they are clothed in the right forms, harmonies, and orchestration.  Johannes Brahms, Composer – Sun in Taurus/Moon in Sagittarius

I'm scared to death of being poor. It's like a fat girl who loses 500 pounds but is always fat inside. I grew up poor and will always feel poor inside. It's my pet paranoia. Cher, Singer/Actress – Sun in Taurus/Moon in Capricorn

When you are down and out something always turns up - and it is usually the noses of your friends. Orson Welles, Actor – Sun in Taurus/Moon in Aquarius

I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it. Audrey Hepburn, Actress – Sun in Taurus/Moon in Pisces


  1. These are really good, Mandi, and deeper than they look upon inspection. Great quotes that reflect the Sun and the Moon. Thanks.

  2. Thanks Ellen, I'm glad you enjoyed them. I think a person's Moon sign is just as important as their Sun sign and it's great to see both reflected in the things people say and do.

    Forgot to note that the quotes come from

  3. Mandi!!!! I love these quotes!!! Just brilliant!!! Thanks for putting this together!!!

    Taking the Sid Vicious's combination and his quote:

    I just cash in (TAURUS SUN) on the fact that I'm good looking (LIBRA MOON), and I've got a nice figure (TAURUS SUN) and girls like me (LIBRA MOON WITH 7TH HOUSE INFLUENCE). How accurate.

    Sad, that he'd died on his Saturn cycle phase: closing square of Tr SATURN to Natal SATURN.

    ... and Cher's quote! Oh My!

  4. Hi Chilla,

    Thanks so much for your comment, I really enjoyed putting the quotes together. Yes the Sid Vicious one was one of my favourites too.

    Also Cher, that need for material security (Taurus), which is echoed in the Capricorn moon, yet so often that feeling of 'lack 'you get with a Capricorn Moon, the Moon of course being in detriment in that sign.

    Thanks again! I intend to do quotes like this for all the signs, I did Aries last month :D
