Who is Taurus?taurus

The Sun sign Taurus is the Fixed Earth sign of the Zodiac and is all about pursuing value, meaning and purpose. Gathering and surrounding themselves with people who are sympathetic and trustworthy is a primary goal for Taurus. Safety first, comfort second, is their motto. And the first will usually lead to the second. If you gain the trust of a Taurus, you have a friend for life. Also, Taurus accumulates things they feel are extensions of themselves and help make them feel more connected to the world. The key phrase here is “feel” – Taurus’s are very sensual. They look to experience life through the five senses. And, while their sixth sense is available and quite sharp, it is customarily under-utilized in favor of being and staying grounded. Taurus will typically have collections of books, art or whatever. This is an underlying dynamic, with which Taurus constantly struggles and strives to satisfy. They are always seeking to add value meaning and purpose to their lives by adding things they perceive as conducive to their current energetic condition. Taurus remains staunchly connected to that which works for, and is familiar to them. They are imbued with a steadfastness, which can be misunderstood or misinterpreted as stubbornness. But, in reality, they are loyal and single-minded about their views and how they perceive the world – after all, the world is a dangerous and illusory place. Holding on to what works and makes sense is tantamount to survival.

Those born under the astrology sign of Taurus come into the world between April 21st and May 20th. It is the second sign of the zodiac, right after Aries. They are considered stable, loyal and determined. Members of this Zodiac sign also enjoy creature comforts and the finer things in life, so Taurus tends to be aware of opportunities to succeed and be rewarded – financially.

As with all signs, the evolutionary level of the Soul will determine Taurus’s capability for empathy, awareness and perspective.

Taurus at Work

At work, a Taurus is dependable, reliable and rarely shy’s away from a challenge. However, once they’ve mastered a particular task, they will cherish the routine of the task and find great satisfaction in their duties. This being said, if an opportunity for advancement arises with a commensurate raise in salary, Taurus will eagerly compete for the position. Money is very important to Taurus. It is the epitome of value, meaning and purpose – trumped only by love of family. Additionally, those born to this astrology sign play by the rules and will typically do the right thing when circumstances present themselves. Temptation to wander from the ethical or honorable path is counter-intuitive to their make-up. They abhor anything they cannot trust, or that presents a confusing conundrum. Don’t mess with the mind of a Taurus – you will be blackballed from their world forever.

Their love for methods, structure and rules serve them well if they choose to pursue an executive position or embark upon an entrepreneurial venture. It is important for Taurus to remind themselves to look at the big picture, as they have a predisposition to focus too closely on the tasks at hand. Focusing is important, and a valuable skill to possess, but there also needs to be a continual referencing for the longer term in order to be sure they are still on track and heading in the proper direction.


Taurus at Play

When it comes to free time, those born under this astrology sign will typically be attracted to more cerebral pursuits and primarily desire to remain in low-key environments. Taurus is perfectly pleased to spend time with themselves reading, listening to music or lying in the sun – or all three at the same time! Leisure is luscious and Taurus shows us how to do it well. However, periodic socializing is something Taurus knows they must endure, but it is not their first choice of activities. Going to a movie or anywhere they can be “played to” is the preference for Taurus if they are with others. Even though Taurus is not necessarily gregarious and social, this zodiac sign does enjoy being around people – people of their own choosing, that is – and these people find them comfortable to be around. If you are not in a Taurus’s inner circle, you may not understand why people like them. They will hold back and even recluse themselves until they know they can trust you with their time and energy. There is no distrust here, they have just simply not connected yet.

Taurus appreciates beauty and, especially nature. They are an Earth sign, remember. Outdoor sports can be the type of free-time activity that appeals to them – once in a while – but they would much rather enjoy a day at the local museum. While they enjoy being out in the world, their astrological makeup gives them a soft spot for home life, as they prefer to be surrounded with comfortable things and a sense of stability and domesticity. As stated before, this includes people – but especially family.


Taurus and Money

This zodiac sign does like the finer things in life, and will not mind spending a little extra money on food, wine and vacations. This, of course, means they pursue ways to make money. This is where Taurus shines. Creative energy is applied in droves when it comes to the subject of making money. There is a drive – almost obsession – with money. Business ideas and schemes are abundant in the mind of a Taurus. And, while not necessarily a bad thing, the pursuit of money can become an addiction. So, keeping the subject of money in perspective, is important. There can also be a preoccupation with material possessions. Those born under this zodiac sign need to be surrounded by nice things to make them feel “whole,” and view these objects as a reward for hard work. And rightfully so – Taurus’s are hard workers. It is interesting to note, that in addition to Taurus’s predisposition for acquiring wealth and material possessions, they are quite generous. If someone they are close to needs something, they will not hesitate to provide it.


Taurus and Love

A Taurus is loyal and steady. They make good mates and excellent life partners. While this sign of the zodiac is prone to stubbornness, anyone in a relationship with the sign of the bull can expect a few principled standoffs, but they will never be petty or unfair. Love, in the traditional sense, may be reinterpreted with Taurus as a partner. Respect, trust and loyalty are the hallmarks of a Taurus in a relationship. Romance, intimacy and physical love are more expressed, rather than communicated. The energy of connecting and feeling love through one-on-one experiences is very intense and Taurus’s are enthusiastic lovers.


Taurus Compatibility

Taurus is compatible with any sign it can trust and that doesn’t try to change them or redirect their thinking. They will do well with Virgo, and sometimes Cancer, but other signs can – and do – present challenges. Like Taurus, these zodiac signs enjoy domestic comfort and closeness. The Virgo’s intellect will match Taurus, and a Cancer will bring a supportive space to virtually all pursuits. While they are most compatible with these two signs, they can also find happiness and compatibility with Libra or another Taurus. The astrology sign which is directly opposite – Taurus’s polarity – is Scorpio, which Taurus will avoid at all costs. The only area where Taurus and Scorpio overlap, and where some type of compatibility can be found is in their mutual intense passion and sexual appetites. While Scorpio’s sexual prowess is legendary in astrological circles, Taurus is no slouch. They have as much (if not more) sexual energy and endurance. This is the common ground, if and when a Taurus and a Scorpio find themselves moving toward a relationship. Lastly, Geminis are flighty and reckless compared to Taurus. There may also be issues with Pisces, as they tend to prefer living idealistically, instead of remaining firmly grounded, and Pisces will also judge Taurus for their material needs.

When we look at Astrology Compatibility, we must look to the polarities of the sign in question. For Taurus, that is Scorpio. As Taurus “reaches out” to experience Scorpio, they can feel they are moving outside of their comfort zone. They can also feel as if they are being shown something they have little or no control over, as the polarity of every sign is what ultimately “completes” that sign. However, the unknown and oft-times fear-based elements of a sign’s polarity, can be looked at as something to be resisted at all costs. It can be perceived as a potential warning of death. A symbolic death, but a death, nonetheless. On the positive side, it can also be viewed “from a distance” and tentatively approached with a mindfulness and willingness to open up to one’s self. One thing is for sure, there is an enormous opportunity for learning and personal growth with the lessons of a sign’s polarity. The key is to remain grounded in the Sun sign and integrate the polarity. This will dimensionalize the overall experience of living and add immense value to life.


Taurus: Final Thoughts

As a Taurus zodiac sign, you are active and steady but you appreciate fine things and a stable home life. People will look to you in the workplace to lead them with good values and straight-forward ethics. When it comes to money, you like it – a lot! You are a trustworthy person to be around, and can be counted on to do what you say. You are predisposed to making proper choices and enjoy the rewards of your hard work – and the hard work itself.
