Dates – When are Taurus People Born?
Taurus is the star sign of anyone born between April 20 – May 20. Taurus’ element is Earth which makes them practical, hard-working and resilient, a bit on the stubborn side and, some might say, once someone born under this zodiac sign makes up his or her mind there is no shifting them. However, because the ruling planet of Taurus is Venus, the ‘earthy’ elements are softened by this feminine influence making Taureans compassionate, loving, calm and exceptionally tolerant.
Temperament – What are the Characteristic Taurus Personality Traits?
Taurus is said to possess a natural beauty and anyone born under this sun sign is likely to be exceptionally attractive and among the most charming of the zodiac signs. Your warmth will attract people to your side, both male and female, and your sensuality makes you a wonderful lover. Your desire for security can sometimes make you seem materialistic but the driving force is your overwhelming need for stability and to feel safe. You are ambitious and because of your determined nature, you will not stop until you achieve your goals. This makes you an excellent employee and the ideal environment for you is a large company where you can shine.
The expression ‘my home is my castle’ particularly applies to the sun sign Taurus. Your feeling of security is reinforced by having a beautiful home and you will not hesitate to spend your hard-earned money surrounding yourself with luxurious items. Those born under the astrological sign Taurus are drawn to nature – which makes them excellent gardeners and it’s not surprising to see them surrounded by pets. Their love of luxury extends to good food and wine and they make excellent cooks – in fact, their love of the good life is something they need to temper a little to ensure they maintain their good looks and great body!
Compatibility – What Sun Signs are Most Compatible with Taurus?
Charm, sensuality and good looks means anyone born under the astrological sign of Taurus is seen as extremely desirable and will have no shortage of offers! The lucky partner who gets you will not be disappointed as your ‘earthy’ attitude to lovemaking and your desire to please makes you a dream lover. However, despite being ruled by Venus, the God of Love, you are cautious and you don’t give your heart lightly so you will think long and hard before committing to a longterm relationship.
In Tarot, The Hierophant represents Taurus and symbolizes conformity, stability and tradition. Once Taurus makes a commitment they tend to stick with it through thick and thin.
The biggest danger in having a relationship with this zodiac sign is that they may see their partner as yet another of ‘possession’ which may give rise to jealousy. Other earth signs, like Capricorn and Virgo, make excellent partners as, right from the start, you have much in common.
Work – What is the Best Career Choice for Taurus People?
Because of your ambitious nature and your dogged determination, anything Taurus sets their mind to is guaranteed to succeed. You are a dream employee but you don’t like interference – give someone born under this star sign a project, then leave them alone to do it their way! Provided you can overcome your fear of taking risks, particularly financial risks, then running your own business is likely to give you huge satisfaction.
Keep an eye open for opportunities and don’t be afraid to take them. Despite your desire for safety and security in all things, explore your very real creative side – art, music, writing, dance and design are all possible careers for Taureans in addition to working with luxury goods and cosmetics, cookery, horticulture and, of course, anything to do with finance!
Wellness – What Health Issues do Taurus People Have?
Being one of the ‘beautiful people’ can be a big responsibility! But beware, because Taurus is the sun sign most prone to weight gain – and their love of all foods – sweet, rich and decadent can make keeping that lean and lovely body difficult. The neck and throat are the areas of the body particularly associated with this sun sign and many suffer from nasty sore throats. Wrap up well in cold weather and snuggle down regularly with hot honey and lemon drinks.
If weight gain becomes an issue, make sure to have your thyroid checked as it may be under-active. Regular exercise is particularly important for Taurus but find something you enjoy doing – join a gym, go to a dance class but get moving!
