Introducing Taurus – “I have”
April 20 – May 21 (these dates are a rough guide only)
Taurus is the second sign of the Zodiac and its symbol (or glyph) represents the Bull, the leader of the herd.
According to Greek mythology, Zeus fell in love with Europa, the daughter of the King of Tyre. Because Europa was constantly guarded by her father’s servants Zeus changed himself into a beautiful white bull with golden horns.
He then mixed with the herds, that belonged to the King of Tyre and which were grazing in a large field by the sea.
Europa was walking along the beach and noticed this beautiful animal which she went up and fed. The splendid bull was so beautiful and friendly that she climbed onto its back and grasped its golden horns.
Gradually the white bull wandered onto the beach. It ran into the water and began swimming towards the island of Crete. By this time is was too late for Europa to climb off.
When they eventually came ashore, Zeus changed himself back into his own form. Realising that he could not marry her himself, Zeus gave Europa in marriage to Asterius, the King of Crete.
The constellation of Taurus only shows the head of the Bull. This is because his hind quarters are under water as he swims towards Crete.

Taurus is an Earth sign
The Zodiac is divided into four Elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water, which represent the four basic modes of being. Signs that share an Element are generally regarded to be harmonious with each other.
The Element of Taurus is “Earth” which it shares and is compatible with Virgo and Capricorn.
The Element of Earth stands for man’s material resources, his environment and his possessions and belongings.

The signs of the Zodiac are also divided into Qualities: Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable and signs that share a Quality are generally regarded to be hostile to each other.
The Quality relates to the basic temperament of an individual, who will have a prevailing identifying characteristic that is rarely altered through life – nor does it need to be.
Each of these Qualities views the world very differently, their reactions to stimuli are different so that any action they take will be different too.
The Quality of Taurus is “Fixed”
A “fixed sign” is a sign of the zodiac that marks the midpoints of the seasons and therefore Taurus occurs during the fullness of Spring.
Fixed signs tend to be stable individuals who are solid and inflexible. They are wary of change, particularly new ideas and ways of doing things.
However, they are full of purpose and are totally loyal to their family, friends and beliefs.
Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius are also fixed signs. As a result they are less likely to be compatible with Taurus.
The positive side of Taurus
Taureans have limitless patience and are very inquisitive and resourceful.
They are very sensitive towards people’s feelings and organising their finances and business affairs are a real strength.
Taureans have a great affinity for the beautiful things in life.

Taurus Negative Traits
What’s to dislike about Taurus?
Ruled by Venus, the planet of love, Taureans can be possessive. They are also the most stubborn sign of the Zodiac.
They can also be insecure and like to brag about their possessions.
This means that they have a tendency to judge others by what they have.
What is Taurus good at?
Taureans can do well in many different professions: banking, architecture, building, almost any form of bureaucracy, auctioneering, farming, medicine, chemistry.
In industry they make good managers and foremen.
They can be good at surveying, insurance, education. However they can also do well in the arts: music and sculpture.
Some Taureans are gifted enough in singing to become opera stars or to excel in more popular types of music.
They can also gain fame as a chef.

Taurus lucky colour: Green
The colour associated with the planet Venus
Green suggests nature as in plants and forests, life, stability and restfulness. However, while in modern times the colour has come to represent the environment, it can also represent jealousy and envy.
Green should never be worn on serious or “sensible” occasions. It has a soothing effect on the nerves and has come to symbolise prosperity.
Green has also been regarded as the colour of eternal life, as seen in evergreens which never change their colour or shed their leaves.
This means that because it can have a soothing effect green is often used in hospitals – it is thought to help lower the stress levels of both patients and carers.
Green is believed to be an unlucky colour for those who are about to be married. However, it is otherwise considered lucky if an individual wishes to attract attention.
Positive qualities of green: Harmony, balance, refreshment, universal love, rest, restoration, reassurance, environmental awareness, balance and peace.
Negative qualities of green: Boredom, stagnation, blandness, lack of energy
Taureans are also drawn to deep blues, violets and sometimes pastels or florals. They prefer soft patterns that are suggestive of nature or natural things.
They are also attracted to soothing colours that created harmony and peace, such as the calming tone of lilac.
Taureans can also be helped by yellow. This is because it inspires the mind and helps to offset the inherent tendency of this Sign toward laziness and lethargy.
Other favourable colours: Pink, orange, cream, coral, white, bright brown, black
Are you and your partner compatible? Will it last?
Taureans are sensible and practical people and this underscores their love lives. Although they enjoy being at home and love a quiet evening in with good food and good conversation, they are romantic and it means a lot to them to have a deep relationship.
Money is important to materialistic Taureans and although they may not exactly shower you with gifts, when they do buy you a gift it will be the best. They can be very direct about their needs and wants and are very passionate.
Taureans need someone who is practical and strong like themselves. If you are looking for love with a Taurus, take it slow and easy. They like to build their relationships on strong foundations that could well last a lifetime.
Taurus is a very affectionate and loyal sign of the Zodiac and Taureans have a lot to give when they find the right person.
Practical but sensitive!
Taurus Man is very down to earth and is unlikely to sweep you off your feet. Just like Taurus Woman he is looking for stability and security, is practical when it comes to love. He is looking for a longterm commitment.
They may appear to be overtly practical but underneath Taurus Man is very sensitive, but he is very good at hiding it. He may brush off rejection, however, deep down he will be hurting.
Although no Prince Charming, your Taurean Man is romantic but will hesitate to say “I love you”. Faithfull and affectionate, he will love and accept you for who you are.
Taurus Woman can appear to be very old fashioned, but dig beneath that “straight” exterior and you may find someone surprisingly seductive. However, she will never be promiscuous or casual about the relationships that matter to her, as she values security and stability.
Being in love brings out the best in a Taurean Woman. She loves to care for those close to her and will be open and loving.
Confident in her own judgement a Taurus Woman will give you her all, but she will expect the same in return.
Taurus and Aries have very different personalities. Taurus will not be hurried and will be turned off by the energetic enthusiasm of Aries, who tends to be a lot more impulsive. An affectionate affair may be fun, but in marriage Taurus may have to cope with occasional unfaithfullness from Aries.
Taurus may find it hard to tolerate with Leo‘s majesty. Leo is vivacious, Taurus can be practical. Leo is very giving. Taurus can be selfish. Leo can be hard to please, which may prove to be too much trouble in an affair and certainly makes the prospect of a long term relationship even less likely.
Taurus and Scorpio have some similarities. Taurus can be very stubborn when angry and Scorpio’s own anger is something of which all signs of the zodiac should wary – Scorpio really does have a sting in their tail! Because of their physical compatibility they may enjoy a tempestuous affair but marriage would only be possible with extreme tolerance on both sides.
As far as physical love is concerned Aquarius is too introspective to be too interested in Taurus. Aquarius is more mental and Taurus more passionate. A casual affair may work for a time but marriage less likely to be successful.

How to woo a Taurean
Taureans are food and home loving people, so cooking at home will appeal. However, they will also enjoy a nice, quiet evening out where you can share great conversation and good wine.
Taureans love to laugh and have a great sense of humour, so if you do decide to go out, a comedy show, movie or club will suit them just fine.
