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.

Taurus 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.

Taureans 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.

Sometimes 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.

Taureans 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 partners

For some 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.
