All about Taurus Sign personality, traits and characteristics

A Taurus has all the power of action that an Aries has. But Taurus is not satisfied with action for its own sake. Their actions must be productive, practical and wealth-producing. If Taurus cannot see a practical value in an action they will not bother taking it. Taurus' forte lies in their power to make real their own or other people's ideas.

They are generally not very inventive but they can take another's invention and perfect it, making it more practical and useful. The same is true for all projects. Taurus is not especially keen on starting new projects, but once they get involved they bring things to completion. Taurus carries everything through. They are finishers and will go the distance so long as no unavoidable calamity intervenes. Many people find Taurus too stubborn, conservative, fixed and immovable.

This is understandable, because Taurus dislikes change - in the environment or in the routine. They even dislike changing their minds! On the other hand, this is their virtue. It is not good for a wheel's axle to waver. The axle must be fixed, stable and unmov-able. Taurus is the axle of society and the heavens. Without their stability and so-called stubbornness, the wheels of the world {and especially the wheels of commerce) would not turn.

Taurus loves routine. A routine, if it is good, has many virtues. It is a fixed - and, ideally, perfect - way of taking care of things. Mistakes can happen when spontaneity comes into the equation, and mistakes cause discomfort and uneasiness - something almost unacceptable to a Taurus. Meddling with Taurus' comfort and security is a sure way to irritate and anger them. While an Aries loves speed, a Taurus likes things slow.

They are slow thinkers - but do not make the mistake of assuming they lack intelligence. On the contrary, Taurus people are very intelligent. It is just that they like to chew on ideas, to deliberate and weigh them up. Only after due delib­eration is an idea accepted or a decision taken. Taurus is slow to anger - but once aroused, take care! See also Taurus Man and Taurus Woman.

About Taurus

Taurus people are introvert. They are quite in general and they like remaining within themselves for most of the time. They are cautious and they have a very carefully approach towards the other people. This often keeps them safe and they do not get hurt. Their personality is dominantly sensitive and this introvert attitude is their natural defense against the other people. They keep themselves safe and they do not let their personality get damaged by the behavior of others. They remain within their own world for most of the times.

Taurus generally represents the calmness of the human personality. They do not panic that easily. They have the ability to handle difficult situations without losing their focus. Their calmness is also represented in their approach towards other people and intractable things. This makes them artistic. They do have a sensitive personality which perfectly couples with their artistic personality.

Taurus people seek physical pleasure in all the areas. Because they are sensitive, they often enjoy the physical interaction more and they drive more pleasure out of it. Moreover, the Taurus always seek comfort. They want to maximize their happiness and they do so in every other situation. This develops artistic thought, romantic behavior and poetic emotion in their personality.

The Taurus are hardworking by nature but they set their own pace. They do try their best to meet the deadlines but they can’t be dictated pace. They have their own pace but they remain dedicated to their tasks within that pace.

The Taurus are good at appreciating others and recognizing their talents. They do not seek praise themselves but they feel more comfortable in recognizing the talents hidden in other fellows. They appreciate such talents publicly and drive their pleasure from this public acknowledgement. Making Taurus happy is easy. They find great happiness in stability, good accommodation and physical satisfaction.

Taurus personality traits

Taurus in love

In love, the Taurus-born likes to have and to hold. They are the marrying kind. They like commitment and they like the terms of a relationship to be clearly defined. More impor­tantly, Taurus likes to be faithful to one lover, and they expect that lover to reciprocate this fidelity.

When this doesn't happen, their whole world comes crashing down. When they are in love Taurus people are loyal, but they are also very possessive. They are capable of great fits of jeal­ousy if they are hurt in love. Taurus is satisfied with the simple things in a relationship. If you are involved romantically with a Taurus there is no need for lavish entertainments and constant courtship.

Give them enough love, food and comfortable shelter and they will be quite content to stay home and enjoy your company. They will be loyal to you for life. Make a Taurus feel com­fortable and - above all - secure in the relationship, and you will rarely have a problem. In love, Taurus can sometimes make the mistake of trying to control their partners, which can cause great pain on both sides. The reasoning behind their actions is basically simple: Taurus people feel a sense of ownership over their partners and will want to make changes that will increase their own general comfort and security.

This attitude is OK when it comes to inanimate, material things - but is dangerous when applied to people. Taurus needs to be careful and attentive to this possible trait within themselves. More on Taurus Compatibility.

Taurus and finance

Taurus is very money-conscious. Wealth is more important to them than to many other Signs. Wealth to a Taurus means comfort and security. Wealth means stability. Where some Zodiac Signs feel that they are spiritually rich if they have ideas, talents or skills, Taurus only feels wealth when they can see and touch it.

Taurus' way of thinking is 'What good is a talent if it has not been translated into a home, furni­ture, car and holidays?' These are all reasons why Taurus excels in estate agency and agricultural industries. Usually a Taurus will end up owning land. They love to feel their connection to the Earth. Material wealth began with agriculture, the tilling of the soil.

Owning a piece of land was humanity's earliest form of wealth: Taurus still feels that primeval connection. It is in the pursuit of wealth that Taurus develops intellec­tual and communication ability. Also, in this pursuit Taurus is forced to develop some flexibility. It is in the quest for wealth that they learn the practical value of the intellect and come to admire it. If it were not for the search for wealth and material things, Taurus people might not try to reach a higher intellect.

Some Taurus people are 'born lucky' - the type who win any gamble or speculation. This luck is due to other factors in their Horoscope; it is not part of their essential nature. By nature they are not gamblers. They are hard workers and like to earn what they get. Taurus' innate conservatism makes them abhor unnecessary risks in finance and in other areas of their lives.

Taurus career and public image characteristics

Being essentially down-to-earth people, simple and uncom­plicated, Taurus tends to look up to those who are original, unconventional and inventive. Taurus likes their bosses to be creative and original - since they themselves are content to perfect their superiors' brain-waves.

They admire people who have a wider social or political consciousness and they feel that someday (when they have all the comfort and secu­rity they need) they too would like to be involved in these big issues.  In business affairs Taurus can be very shrewd - and that makes them valuable to their employers. They are never lazy; they enjoy working and getting good results. Taurus does not like taking unnecessary risks and do well in positions of authority, which makes them good managers and supervisors. Their managerial skills are reinforced by their natural talents for organization and handling details, their patience and thoroughness.

As mentioned, through their connection with the earth, Taurus people also do well in farming and agriculture. In general a Taurus will choose money and earning power over public esteem and prestige. A position that pays more -though it has less prestige - is preferred to a position with a lot of prestige but fewer earnings. Many other Signs do not feel this way, but a Taurus does, especially if there is nothing in his or her personal birth chart that modifies this. Taurus will pursue glory and prestige only if it can be shown that these things have a direct and immediate impact on their wallet.

Life of Taurus

Home and family are vitally important to Taurus. They like children. They also like a comfortable and perhaps glam­orous home - something they can show off. They tend to buy heavy, ponderous furniture - usually of the best quality. This is because Taurus likes a feeling of substance in their environment. Their house is not only their home but their place of creativity and entertainment. The Taurus home tends to be truly their castle.

If they could choose, Taurus people would prefer living in the countryside to being city-dwellers. If they cannot do so during their working lives, many Taurus individuals like to holiday in or even retire to the country, away from the city and closer to the land. At home a Taurus is like a country squire - lord (or lady) of the manor. They love to entertain lavishly, to make others feel secure in their home and to encourage others to derive the same sense of satisfaction as they do from it. If you are invited for dinner at the home of a Taurus you can expect the best food and best entertainment.

Be prepared for a tour of the house and expect to see your Taurus friend exhibit a lot of pride and satisfaction in his or her possessions. Taurus likes children but they are usually strict with them. The reason for this is they tend to treat their chil­dren - as they do most things in life - as their possessions.

The positive side to this is that their children will be well cared for and well supervised. They will get every material thing they need to grow up properly. On the down side, Taurus can get too repressive with their children. If a child dares to upset the daily routine - which Taurus love to follow - he or she will have a problem with a Taurus parent.
