Characteristics of Taurus Sun Sign People
Taurus, Symbolized by the Bull
Huge Nature Lovers
Lovers of Earth, Taurus sun sign people enjoy hiking, camping, birding and both strenuous and relaxing outdoor activities. They appreciate all things of beauty, art, and music, but especially nature. Taurus people are the ones beginning community gardens in your town, and puttering around in their own gardens as well. Many travel to National Parks such as Yellowstone in WY or Acadia National Park in ME to take in the marvelous natural sites.
They are the environmental activists in your community, and will fight to preserve any buildings or land of historic value. Taurus rules the throat and neck, and they have gentle hands which have a healing touch. Naturally quiet, Taurus sun sign people do not speak unless they have something that really needs to be said. So be sure to listen. They listen to everyone else, and often make the most sensible suggestions after all the others have spoken their piece. They do not like to hear others argue, and try to keep all their relationships on peaceable terms. So if you have a Bull in the house, open up a bottle of wine, put on some nice music, put on the fireplace, and take it from there… They will not get angry unless they are really pushed too far. Taurus people are usually a calming influence on the people around them, the dependable “rock” that everyone leans on.
Stable and Cautious
Taurus is a fixed Earth Sign, symbolized by the Bull and ruled by the planet Venus. Taurus Birthdays fall on or around April 21st-May 21st, but each year varies slightly, so be sure to consult a book called an Ephemeris to be sure. Your Sun sign is never “on a cusp” as many people have been led to believe, it is always in one sign only. There are cusps, but they separate the houses of the zodiac, and have nothing to do with your Sun sign or birthdays. Taurus sun sign people are calm and pleasant to be around, because they have harmonious Venus as their ruler. This gives them a kind and gentle demeanor. You feel safe when surrounded by the arms of a Tarurean, and their lusty love nature sneaks up on you in a surprising, but wonderful way! They are stable and cautious, which helps draw people to them, and are great at mediating disputes of any kind. But do not forget their symbol is the Bull, and although Taurus sun sign people do not get angry all that much, beware the times they do! Do you know what a bull looks like when he is charging at that red flag? You get the picture. This is a place you do not want to go without a lot of forethought.
Hard Work Builds a Stable Life
Taurus sun sign people like to live in comfort, but do not have a need to own many material things, just the special ones that make them feel happy. Beware, this could include a pair of shoes that belonged in the garbage twenty years ago, or a stuffed animal from childhood. They will not live without what they feel is essential for the comfort level that they crave. Taurus sun sign people enjoy eating good food at nice restaurants or are good cooks themselves, or both. They enjoy listening to their favorite music, and may be really good singers themselves.
Their homes are beautifully, yet comfortably decorated, so they have a nice, lived in feel. Taurus sun sign people have green thumbs and most likely have a beautiful garden, greenhouse, or many well-tended houseplants. They are very hard workers, and normally are financially secure from young ages. Security is very important to them, both financially and emotionally. If they do not own a company, they are well placed in the one where they work. It is rare to find a Taurus sun sign that does not pay bills on time or own property, and have a nice home on a lovely piece of land. They always have some cash put away for that proverbial rainy day.
Takes Relationships Seriously
Taurus sun sign people do not engage in frivolous relationships, but like to take their time to get to know somebody well. When they decide to take the plunge into a serious relationship, they are in it for the long haul. They are very devoted to their lovers and children, and will change plans immediately if either needs them for anything important. This is saying a lot for a person who enjoys structure and is not one to just call in sick for a mental health day from work. Taurus sun sign people are so very devoted to the ones they care about. Patient to a fault, Taurus is among the most persistent signs in the zodiac. They do not like change. Try to suggest that they get rid of that ratty shirt they have been wearing for twenty years, and you will face the wrath of the Bull! Do not forget, the opposite of persistence is stubbornness.
Taurus is Ruled by Venus, Planet of Love
The key phrase for Taurus sun sign people is “I have.” Their possessions are very important to them, as we have established. Do not forget it. I was once married to a Taurus man for 34 years before he passed; and he still had his bronzed first pair of baby shoes his Mom saved! I recommend buying Hefty bags in bulk and filling them when your beloved Taurean is out!
They need to have emotional and financial security, but are stable people who are willing to give that back to the people they love. Taurus sun sign people make loyal friends and will take on their problems if they can think of a concrete way to help. They are a bit jealous and possessive in love relationships, so you may want to watch out for that, though they are gentle and will not cause any scenes. They may pout and are not beyond trying to make you feel guilty for not paying attention to them. Taurus people are big on analysis, have will power and normally achieve their goals. They like to do things their own way and it is best not to interfere, just trust them to make the most sensible choices. Relax, you are in very capable hands.
