Planet Neptune really tunes into the fashion style of the moment, as it’s all about the glamour, the art, the style of the time.

Neptune in Taurus – A Venus Ruled Sign…

With Neptune in a Venus-ruled sign, Taurus, the areas governed by Taurus can be glamorised, idealised, or dissolved and diluted…

What’s more, the tone of Venus itself will resonate…

This seems to be a little magazine type offering, published by Chicago Engraving Company.

This ‘Picture Gallery for Young Folks’ has floral garlands and a pastoral scene, and it’s pink!

Dated April 1881, on the 19th, the Sun, Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune, Chiron, Venus Rx, and Pluto would’ve appeared in Taurus…

Here is a print from that same month…

Print, France, April 1881…

I love that we can see some of the fashion and furnishings of the day in this image; two of the children bring gifts of flowers (a plant).

We see a woody glade and house plants, too! Perhaps Neptune’s passage through Taurus romanticised foliage and gave a great reverence for nature and the natural world…

Impressionism, Romanticism…

In the Meadow, Oil on canvas, 1888–92

Pierre-Auguste Renoir was born 25 February 1841 at 06:00 am in Limoges, France, with Neptune Rising.

A great artist and Pisces, his Aquarius Ascendant (14º48′), Neptune (15º20′) and the North Node (17º20′) are all tightly conjunct and pronounced in his chart.

Between 1888 and 1892 Renoir painted a number of works in which the same pair of girls—the blonde wearing a white frock and the brunette a pink one—engage in leisurely pastimes. Here, they pick flowers; the same models appear at the piano in a painting now in . These intimate genre scenes, which celebrate youthful innocence, found a ready market in the early 1890s.

Vincent van Gogh was born on 30th March 1853, with Neptune, Mars and Venus in Pisces.

Later in life his work developed, so that he created a new approach to still life and local landscapes.

His paintings grew brighter as he developed a style that became fully realised during his stay in the south of France in 1888, when he broadened his subject matter to include series of olive trees, wheat fields, and sunflowers.

This was when Neptune in Taurus was sextile his Venus, and was also regarded as the high note of his career…

Born With Neptune In Taurus…

There are two ways we can observe Neptune in Taurus.

One is through the influence this transit had on people, and the art, music and fashions that became popular during this time frame.

The other is to examine those with the transit or planet prominent – and indeed the zodiac sign.

Natalia Goncharova (born July 3rd 1881 to October 17th 1962), a Cancer Sun with a stellium in Taurus: Mars, Saturn, Neptune, Jupiter, Venus and Pluto.

A Russian avant-garde artist, painter, costume designer, writer, illustrator, and set designer, she is a unique example of person born with such a strong chart signature.

Notably, she was a member of the German-based art movement Der Blaue Reiter, yet it’s hard to ascertain the part Neptune plays…

Rolf de Maré (9 May 1888 – 28 April 1964) was a Swedish art collector and leader of the Ballets Suédois in Paris in 1920–25.

A fascinating man, he was born just before a New Moon in Taurus, with the Sun, Moon, Venus, Black Moon Lilith, Mercury, Ceres and Neptune in Taurus – Neptune at the 29th degree of Taurus…
