Famous Taurus That Share Your Sign

Your Symbol in the Stars

 

 

 
Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac, and the Sun resides in this sign from 21 April until 20 May each year. The symbol of Taurus is the Bull, for reasons that will be developed in the next few paragraphs.
 
As a Taurus, you are likely to be very patient, a hard worker, and one of those people who constantly puts forth much sustained effort. Your demeanor is slow and deliberate, and attempts by others to hurry you rarely succeed. You need time to adjust to new ideas and changes. You can be stubborn to the point of becoming rigid, but you are practical and constructive in nearly everything you do. You carefully consider options before starting any action or coming to any conclusion. You function best under conditions where there is predictability, and where you can exercise a degree of control.
 
Good-natured and friendly, your placid demeanor rarely shows upset or anger. When you are aroused, as suggested by the symbol of the sign, your reactions are very much like those of the angered bull. This anger can be reckless, and often lingers.
 
There is a certain reluctance in the Taurus nature to try anything new or different. You don't take many chances, and you believe in sticking with the familiar and comfortable. There is not much adventure in your soul, and it is probably fair to label you a conservative individual. The danger with Taurus is the tendency to become too narrow-minded, and to dismiss anything that can't be seen, touched, smelled or tasted.
 
You are not usually the first to learn a lesson, but when it is mastered, you are not likely ever to forget. Retentive and steadfast, you don't scatter your energies. You may be lazy at times, perhaps not spending any energy at all for extended periods. Yet long term, you are very willing to assume responsibility and shoulder more than your fair share of the load.
 
You may be materialistic, often showing interests in money, security, and comforts in life. To those you love, you often show your feelings in a material way, and you appreciate the same in return. The Taurus personality is sometimes too concerned with money and possessions. Perhaps a little indulgent and luxury-loving, you relish creature comforts and appreciate beautiful possessions. Because of these interests, you have good taste in clothing and furnishings. You also may have a talent for landscaping and working with plants and flowers to make your surrounding more pleasant and appealing.
 
You may excel as a cook, but even if you don't have the inclination to prepare it, you certainly enjoy food; perhaps too much. Because of this, you may have a battle with your weight. A slow metabolism and lack of interest in exercise often compound this problem.
 
A natural interest in art and music often leads to careers or hobby pursuits in some form of art. Taurus is the sign that rules the throat, so you may have a fine singing and speaking voice.
Love relationships are very important to you. Since you don't like being alone, you may settle for a partnership that is less than ideal, instead of accepting loneliness. Once settled in a relationship, you are very steadfast and dependable. You are exceedingly loyal, and make a very faithful friend. The most appealing aspect of Taurus, that sweet and loving temperament, is the often present when the Sun appears in Taurus.
In Taurus, Mercury produces a mind that is patient and practical. Your thinking is often conservative, and your thought processes are fixed and stable. You are more apt to learn from experiences than from formal training. Your powers of concentration are outstanding. Thinking and decision-making is based upon that which is practical, material and surrounded by common sense. Many will consider you a "slow-poke" when it comes to mental matters and communicating ideas. You are slow to form opinions because you put much thought into questions before you render an answer, and you don't like to be rushed in this.

You may excel in handling financial matters, for you are very dependable in managing money. You have a shrewd business mind and a natural inclination toward management of resources.

Often this position marks a degree of mental stubbornness and steadfastness. Once you have made up your mind, you do not like to change it or hear differing arguments and ideas. In extreme cases, you may ignore obvious conclusions that differ from your initial decision. Guard against a tendency toward intellectual obstinacy and the highly opinionated views that sometimes plague Mercury in Taurus people.

Venus in Taurus produces a practical, stable, and constant persona. Your approach to love and romance is simple and direct. Your sincerity is attractive and often irresistible. You take love seriously and with careful consideration.
 
Yet, you can be so much fun to be around. You are rarely too serious-acting, moody or unhappy. You know how to have a good time and to help others to do the same. You are easygoing and cheerful most of the time.
 
There is an attraction to the luxuries of life, and often a tendency to overindulge in sensual pleasures. You may have a weakness for good food, good wine, fine furnishings and clothes, and many more objects and activities that delight the senses. The best of everything will be yours if you can figure a way to afford it all.
 
This large appetite extends to love-making and romantic involvement. This sign produces the most earthy sex drive.
 
When you fall in love, it is usually permanent and dependable. Your nature is faithful and permanent. You require a deep commitment from your partner and you are willing to give the same in return. You are loyal and a one-love person. But your demands on that one lover can be great.
 
If you feel insecure, you may become jealous and overbearing with your mate. Just as you are loyal and dependable, you are very possessive and jealous if your emotional security is threatened.
A Taurus Moon emphasizes the material side of life, and emotions are centered on the comforts and possessions in life. You tend to be a collector and an accumulator of the things that, in your view, make up the "good life." With the Moon in Taurus, you want the best that life has to offer, and you find it difficult to settle for less. The emotions are earthy and practical, highly attracted to material possessions and the satisfactions that come from material comforts. Your fondness for wealth and inborn understanding of the material world might result in a natural business sense and a gift for making money.

This is a stable position for the Moon; reactions and emotional responses are slow, but full. Easygoing, even-tempered, and good-natured, you are a great companion and a devoted friend. You don't anger easy; you believe in loving, not fighting. Little annoyances don't really bother you very much. There is a deep emotional need to gratify physical appetites. You can be very possessive, and sometimes quite self-indulgent. Stable and steady, loyal and lasting, you are a determined, if sometimes stubborn person.

In a romantic sense, no lover of yours will ever want for affection. On the other hand, this person may feel a little smothered by your possessiveness. Yours is a strong sense of ownership, and this may extend to your partner in a romance. It is important to remember that you can't buy love and you don't own your lover. Your needs and desires are simple, down-to-earth and of a practical, physical nature. Sensual and strongly sexual, your enjoyment of sex is direct and unabashed. You very much like physical contact; hugs and back rubs. With friends and lovers you can be quite demonstrative.

Sense impressions are very strong, the sense of touch and taste is highly developed, and you probably have a pleasant speaking and singing voice. At least you are fond of music, art, dancing and all things that make life more pleasurable. You innate good taste probably extends to decorating the home and having a great sense for interior design.

You have deep powers of concentration and generally a conservative outlook. Your ideas are very conventional. You only welcome those ideas which are compatible with your stable temperament. Conservative and conventional, you have to avoid becoming narrow-minded and fixed in your opinions. You don't like contradiction, simply because you don't like to argue. You will stick to your ideals through thick and thin, being blindly faithful, sentimental, affectionate and basically timid.

Mars in Taurus denotes plenty of practical and emotional energy, while the physical side is often rather flat, and the interest in the intellectual is also a strain.

The planet of energy is not very active in Taurus, as the physical drive is reduced to a low gear. You may lack thrust and mobility, but make up for this deficiency with outstanding endurance. You are obstinate in many ways, yet practical, determined and very stable. You pursue your material goals with intent determination. Results are based on dogged persevering after a course of action is determined. Once you finally get rolling in one direction, it is nearly impossible to change your course. In Taurus, the energies of Mars are indeed channeled into a practical mode that may center on acquiring money, creature comforts and material possessions. Much your energy is apt to be aimed at securing wealth and a very comfortable lifestyle. Patient and precise in all that you do, you are a natural crafts person and the fruit of your efforts is likely to produce a quality product.

Also high on your list of priorities is the satisfying of physical desires. You are very sensual and sexual partner. Your approach to sex is straightforward and uncomplicated, without fantasies or fetishes; never rushed or over-anxious. Emotionally stable, you are apt to be a devoted and loyal partner.

The negative side of Mars in Taurus is often the lack of flexibility. Taurus is a fixed sign and energies expressed here sometimes come out looking like stubbornness. Even emotions can be held on to too tightly and then released with a major blow up.

This placement of Jupiter indicates a stable and beneficial use of money and resources. You feel that the accumulation of wealth is important to provide the high standard of living that you so desire. You have an appetite for the best of everything, especially food; you have gourmet tastes, and the finest of luxurious surroundings your means can afford. Since you can usually attract the assets you need, you tend to live quite well. In business, you are steady and patient. You can see things on a large scale and bring them to fruition. A little on the stubborn side, you don't like being pushed or directed. You are very conservative and orthodox in most of your views.
Saturn is in Taurus giving you a very strong need for financial and emotional security. To be happy and comfortable, you have to have your daily affairs in order and under strict control. Unfortunately, the placement doesn't give you much unless you earn it. You are a very thrifty person, spending only for what you really need. Your nature tends to patient and disciplined, and you approach to life reflects a matter-of-fact attitude. What you may lack in spontaneity, you more than make up for with your willingness to work hard for success. You are well suited for big business or politics, although your determination can also reap benefits in other fields, especially in the arts.

Uranus
Many of your peers born during the years when Uranus was in Taurus will be rather deliberate in viewing and effecting change on a broad scale. Revisions to the status quo must be proven to have concrete purpose and reward, and those that do will be set in stone.
