Reliable and patient Taurus, this is your time to shine. As you celebrate your birthday between April 20 and May 21, get ready to embark on a new year with your trademark loyalty and practicality. Since you enjoy stability and being surrounded by love and beauty, check out our guide below for custom wellness, style, and give-back ideas to inspire and guide you this month and beyond.
The element associated with Taurus is Earth. That, along with being born in the prime of Spring, makes for a sign that truly adores mother nature. This sign is also persistent; what can often be seen as stubbornness (we prefer to call it commitment) gives you the ability to complete tasks with whatever it takes. This month, take all of those qualities and try geocaching. Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. There are geocaches of all kinds all over the globe; you can easily join the game with the Geocaching app. Take advantage of the warmer, longer days and dive into the challenge of a real treasure hunt!
Wear: Taurus Zodiac Pendant Necklace or a Diamond or Emerald Birthstone Necklace
Commemorate your birth month by adding a zodiac pendant necklace or diamond or emerald pendant necklace, to your birthday wish list. The Taurus pendant epitomizes the grounded, committed, and reliable qualities of the person wearing it (plus Mathematics offers pendants in two different lengths—original and shorty). And depending on where your birth date falls, choose either the Diamond or Emerald Pendant Necklace, featuring the official birthstone of all April and May babies, respectively. Are you an April baby who wants to stay within a certain budget? Mathematics offers an alternative to diamonds with their White Sapphire Pendant Necklace.
Give Back: ALS Awareness Month
Your natural sense of commitment means you are dedicated to any cause you affiliate yourself with. May is ALS Awareness Month, observed to raise awareness of and foster research for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. ALS is a progressive, fatal, neurodegenerative disorder of upper and lower motor neurons. Remember the Ice Bucket Challenge from 2014? That initiative raised $115 million for ALS research, as well as awareness for the devastating disease. While progress has been made, there is still much more to be done. Become an advocate for healthcare reform, development of ALS drugs and treatments, or raise awareness in your community by creating a One Dollar Difference fundraiser of your own by hosting a bake sale, run a marathon, or donate your birthday and raise funds.
