Taurus is the second sign of
the Zodiac and is ruled by Venus. People posited in this sign of the
Zodiac are contented, loving and are expansive in nature. Practical,
reliable Taureans are great lovers of sensual pleasures, although they
do tend to be rather stubborn, possessive and conservative. Firmly
anchored in the material world, they have a fine grasp of what is needed
in order to lead the good life. Of course, all individuals belonging to
Taurus are capable in emergencies, where they have an instinctive
understanding of what to do, but under normal circumstances, no-one can
force them into anything without due time for thought and consideration.
loves the rewards for the work or task that they perform. Taureans enjoy
a tender, even sensual, touch. They adore comfort and like being
surrounded by pleasing, soothing things. Along these lines, they also
favor a good meal and a fine wine. The good life in all its guises,
whether it's the arts or art of their own making (yes, these folks are
artistic as well), is heaven on Earth to the Taurean-born.
don't start out with the intention of getting stuck. They simply want to
get things done, and it's that steady, headstrong persistence that winds
up being viewed as stubbornness. The Moon is exalted in Taurus, giving
success with matters to do with the public and, combined with the
influence of Venus, a passionate nature endowed with a strong sense of
loyalty and fidelity. You are kind and generous with friends, with whom
you develop an unspoken rapport.
individuals of the Taurus sign can be a bit arrogant about their work
and they like to work at their own pace. There tends to be a focus on
material acquisitions in life, and the only reason they work is for the
money it provides to allow them to get what they want out of life. They
crave comfort, satisfaction, and pleasure; all of which they feel can be
had with money. Their strong desire for emotional and material security
leads them to work hard.
are very serious and loyal once in a relationship, and tend to be very
sensual and patient, which generally makes for great lovers. However,
after the novelty of a new love wears off, there's a danger of becoming
a couch potato.
Possessions to the Taurean are very important. In fact, possessiveness
is the major Taurean fault. The two go together. Taureans love to own
beautiful things, and they really do need to be aware that their partner
is not an extension of this basic urge. The realization that no one can
actually be possessed by another can be a cause of real heartache to
Taureans. The sooner they learn to adopt a self-analytical and critical
attitude in their expression of love the better, as this can help them
to express themselves in a less claustrophobic way towards their
reason, they like not only to become involved with, but also
overburdened by, others' problems. Because of this involvement, Taureans
sometimes feel that a friendship is a property, and they often get very
possessive and jealous.
