the taurus moon is sensitive, caring, and rooted in the loving power of venus. this sensitivity can have its downsides - you must take care to not be taken advantage of by others, and simultaneously to not allow your own sensitivities to make you shut down when you feel slighted. you thrive in security and comfort, leaving the chaotic sorts of relationships to other signs.

the taurus shawl is a rich green, featuring a soothing garter body and simple crescent shape with a touch of elegance at the edge thanks to a combined cable and lace border.
