(April 20-May 20)
Renowned Taurus composer Johannes Brahms (1833–1897) completed his first symphony when he was 43 years old—even though he'd started work on it at age 22. Why did it take him so long? One factor was his reverence for Ludwig van Beethoven, the composer who had such a huge impact on the development of classical music. In light of Beethoven's mastery, Brahms felt unworthy. How could any composer add new musical ideas that Beethoven hadn't already created? But after more than two decades, Brahms finally managed to overcome his inhibition. He eventually produced four symphonies and scores of other pieces, and left a major mark on musical history. For you, Taurus, I see the coming months as a phase comparable to the time when Brahms finally built the strength necessary to emerge from the shadow that had inhibited him.
