They manages to possess, and "have" just about everything possible. Very gentle, steadfast, stubborn and at times, slow. They plod through life making other's dreams come true by taking other's projects and making them shine. Down to earth with a no-nonsense approach, saying what they mean with a very strong sense of values. You will find nothing cheap or shoddy about them or what they own. Waiting until they can afford only the best, including fine food and wine. Often artistic and sometimes very musical since they are ruled by the throat.
Personality Traits :
Taureans like to be rooted -- whether it is your environment, work, home or your opinions. Thus you are a picture of stability to some and to others you can be stubborn, with a mind closed to new ideas and a certain unwillingness to change. But it works both ways, you are determined and do not easily buckle under pressure and adversity. You are patient, loyal and caring. Like the bull that represents your zodiac sign, you will be slow to anger but once annoyed, you will rage and turn ferocious.
There is no stopping you then. Like fire, you can be a good friend and a bad enemy; you can also be quite shy and reserved. But like the proverbial bull in the china shop, a little clumsy in both life and language being remarkably outspoken and expressive with speech and exaggerated hand and arm movements when enraged. You are not the kind to undertake risky ventures and certainly are not too apt to be rash. This is partly because you are lazy and partly because of your need to hold on to what you already possess.
You like to live comfortably and are a good provider. Ruled by Venus, you seek the pleasure of the senses and to you, being a true admirer of beauty, material comforts are far more important than for other zodiac signs. You are stubborn, carrying this trait to all spheres in your life, thereby, in a way, closing your options for a better life. Your stubbornness, combined with laziness can create problems you will find difficult to deal with. Often you will make little or no effort to change the situation around you. Nothing seems to drive you but the temptation to acquire some material benefit to keep you and yours happy.
WHAT BRINGS YOU LUCK
Rose pink, brown, grassy green and all shades of blue are good colours for Taureans. Friday is your lucky day, whereas number six and others that add up to it bring you luck. In gems, you should go for diamond, white zircon and moonstone. Venus is your ruler and your element is earth.
PROFESSIONAL AND MONETARY WELL-BEING
Taurus is the money-sign of the zodiac and make excellent businesspersons. Not only will you be successful in making money; you will be able to preserve it well. You should be able to develop your business profitably and very rarely allow any rash decisions to harm your interests. You will make good financiers and bankers. If you choose the arts, as some Taureans do, it is more likely to be music, where you will excel; also doing well in work connected with land or environment.
Romance and Family
Taureans are family-oriented people and enjoy spending time with loved ones. You are drawn towards children and the children in turn, look up to you. Large-hearted to the point of being self-sacrificing, always putting your family's needs above your own, and getting along with everyone, unless they try to dominate you is the Taurean way. Strong believers in fidelity and stable relationships, you can be romantic, attentive, tender, and affectionate.
Rarely feeling the temptation to stray, you can be quite possessive and can indeed get jealous if your partner's attention wavers. The romance with your partner is something that will be of constant interest and is unlikely to die even when you settle down to the routines of married life. Taurus will find an ideal match in fellow Taureans, Virgos and Capricorns. Marriage with an air sign like Aquarius could also prove successful. You will take a fair amount of interest in what you fill your house with and will definitely do your best to provide all material comforts.
Health and Fitness
This zodiac signs rules the neck, throat, tongue, ears and the thyroid gland and care should be taken to avoid any trouble in these areas. You are muscular and athletic, but you have a tendency to put on weight Vegetarians should consume good quality protein from lentils, pulses and fish It is very important to take good care of your health, as people belonging to your sign are predisposed towards heart-related complications later in life. You can avoid this by maintaining a simple exercise regimen. Aerobics, brisk walking, cycling, swimming, etc. at least three times per week would be ideal. Yoga is good too, but is not a substitute for aerobic activity.
As most Taureans do not bring home their work pressures, you are not likely to suffer from stress-related problems. You are also very slow to anger. However, when you do, it takes a long time for your anger to cool down. This poses an additional danger for your heart and blood pressure. Whenever you feel a bout of anger rising within you, take a deep breath, count to ten or walk away. Although you tend to look rather stocky and are prone to put on weight, you can be surprisingly graceful in your movements. You have a good complexion and noticeable eyes.
Taureans are prone to throat infections that if neglected, they may lead to laryngitis. Thyroid and constipation are also common complaints.. You maintain a high protein/high fat diet. You must also consume good quality protein from lentils, pulses and fish (if you are a non-vegetarian). Stay away from fatty meats and cheese.
The second Sign of the Zodiac, is all about reward. Unlike Aries, who just loves the challenge of the game, Taureans love the rewards, the big payoff. Think physical pleasures and material goods, and a Taurean will spring to mind, for those born under this Sign revel in delicious excess. They are also a tactile lot, enjoying the tender (and sensual) touch. Taureans adore comfort and like being surrounded by pleasing, soothing things. And this applies to their palate, too - they favour a good meal and a fine wine.
The good life in all its guises, the fine arts, or art of their own making, are heaven on Earth to the Taurean-born. The Taurean mascot is the Bull, along with which comes the expectation that these people are bull-headed and stubborn. Yes, they are. This is due to the Fixed Quality attached to their sign, so expect that things will occasionally grind to a halt. That said, Taureans don't start out with the intention of getting stuck. They simply want to get things done, and it is that steady, dogged persistence which winds up being viewed as stubbornness. Bulls are actually among the most practical and reliable members of the Zodiac, and they are happy to plod along, as it were, in pursuit of their goals. The good news for Bulls is that once they get to the finish line, they'll indulge in comfortable, luxurious material goods.
Taurus is ruled by the Planet Venus, the Planet of love, beauty, art and indulgence. In ancient Roman mythology, Venus was the Goddess of all those things, and Taureans appear to have taken up where she left off. Bulls are fond of all things pretty, whether it's in their home, at a museum or on the stage. To onlookers, this may look excessive, but Bulls really aren't interested in living without being surrounded by beauty. To the Bull beauty also comes in the form of a happy home life, one that includes a partner and a stable relationship.
Taureans value harmony in their personal lives, so they'll work hard on keeping their lover happy. The Bull's penchant for sensual pleasures, of course, can only help things along. Bulls can also be the soppiest of sentimentalists. Will all this overweening attention to their mate turn a Bull into a possessive mess? Probably not, although these people do have to manage their tendency to latch on a bit tight. At the end of the day, however, the Taurean-born are true romantics and loyal to the core.
The Element associated with Taurus is Earth. No pie-in-the-sky for these practical people, since they would much rather be on terra firma. Bulls tend toward conservatism, and this is often seen in their daily behaviour. No far-out schemes (that's Air) or shrieking ultimatums (like Fire) here. Taureans far prefer to take each day slowly and steadily work toward their ultimate goal.
For that matter, those born under this Sign are happy to stick with their projects until they have reached a successful conclusion. They are also extremely patient, and dependable along the way. Does that sound earthy enough? The only kink in this well-oiled chain is the heckler in the gallery that tries to scold the Bull. The Torean may have a short temper. If provoked, a Bull can get argumentative, but they'll calm down eventually, and come back to centre, since these people would much rather be in Zen-like peace. The Earth in this Sign does tend to act as a balancing mechanism, so that things never get truly out of hand. For every one person who considers the Bull a pain, there are two who will say 'No way!' and happily take the Taurean's gentle charms when Taurus is ruled by the Planet Venus, a lovely gal who didn't deny herself many things.
In ancient Roman mythology, Venus was the Goddess of Love, Beauty and Pleasure, and Taureans have pretty much taken up where she left off. Bulls are fond of all things pretty, whether it's in their home, at a museum or on the stage. Life as one sweet pas de deux is how the Taurean-born like it. To onlookers, this may look like so much materialism and blessed excess, but Bulls really aren't interested in living without beauty in their lives. Beauty to the Bull also comes in the way of a happy home life, one which includes a partner and a stable relationship.
Along these lines, those born under this Sign are happy to stick with their projects until they have reached a successful conclusion. They are also extremely patient and dependable along the way. Does that sound earthy enough? The only kink in this well-oiled chain is the heckler in the gallery that tries to upbraid the Bull. These folks may not have a hair-trigger temper, but it's short enough. Bulls in a hissy fit can get pretty argumentative, but eventually they'll calm down and come back to center, since these folks would much rather be Zen.
The Earth in this Sign does tend to act as a balancing mechanism so that things never get truly out of hand. For every one person who considers the Bull a pain, there are two who will say 'No way!' and happily take the Taurean's gentle charms any day seeing as how Bulls are generally strong and well-built, it's no surprise that these folks enjoy testing their strength on the field of play. Expect to find a Bull engaged in a spirited game of hoops or mountain climbing. Hiking is also a favorite pastime, since it keeps Taureans close to their beloved earth. Indoor adventures are also favored by Bulls, which is why the opera or ballet is right up a Taurean's alley. When it comes to love, the Taurus-born are devoted, romantic and somewhat possessive. Their sensual nature has a way of erasing any mistakes! Since Taurus rules the neck and throat, Bulls would be wise to keep a silky scarf at hand, ideally in a warm (and soothing) earth tone.
The great strength of the Taurean-born is in their stability, loyalty and dogged determination. Bulls want to get the job done, and they will. What better way to get the riches they so fervently crave?
