I don’t know too many Taurus’s but the very few that I personally know are extremely hard-working, entrepreneurs and self-starters.
If you would like to know all about yourself, past just your sun sign, I suggest going to cafeastrology.com and getting your complete Natal Chart. A natal chart uses your date of birth, location of birth and time of birth to exactly point out the alignment of the planets the exact moment you were born. This gives you detail as to all of your signs, not just your sun sign, which will more accurately describe your personality, characteristics, love life and so much more. For example, my sun sign is in Pisces, but my Venus is in Aries. Your Venus sign describes who you are/characteristics romantically, in love and with a partner.
Last week I posted an Instagram asking our followers to comment their sign and the most commented sign would get a blog post dedicated love life, career paths, connections to the universe and challenges you may face based on the characteristics of your sign. Okay, so onto Taurus’!
Taurus is the persistent provider of the zodiac, the sign that helps us seek security, enjoy earthly pleasures and get the job done.
Taurus is the second of the 12 signs of the zodiac, which begins its cycle in the middle of spring every year during Taurus season—it falls around April 20-May 20. Whether or not you have Taurus planetary placements in your chart (find out by doing a free chart here), it’s important to understand the energy of this sign, as various planets travel (or “transit”) through Taurus all year long, activating this sign’s earthy energy for everyone, regardless of your Sun sign.
Ruled by the persistent and plodding Bull, Taurus energy has two speeds. It’s either relaxed and contented (like a steer luxuriating in a verdant pasture) or hyped-up and ready to charge. (Toro, toro!) This zodiac sign has a built-in energy conservation program. It will patiently assess whether something is worth the investment of time and resources. Then if the green light flashes, it’s all systems go! Until then, slow and steady wins the Taurus race. This sign encourages us to break our work into simple steps then take daily action. Taurus is the sign of the builder, helping us create concrete results for our diligent efforts. Under the influence of a Taurus planetary transit, we roll up our sleeves and get the job done. The positive essence of Taurus energy shows up as patient, organized, supportive, romantic, careful, and dedicated. On the flip side, Taurus energy can also be overindulgent, stubborn, lazy, vain, tightfisted and too cautious. Routine-loving Taurus can get us stuck in our comfort zones and habits. Make sure that consistency doesn’t turn into stagnation or inertia.
Taurus is one of the three zodiac signs grouped under the earth element. The other two earth signs are Virgo and Capricorn. Since Taurus is the first earth sign in the zodiac cycle, it’s like the bedrock that sets the foundation. Many Taurus people are stabilizers, ensuring that there’s security for themselves and others. Under the influence of a Taurus planetary cycle, we all become more grounded and easygoing, taking the proper steps necessary to ascertain our goals through diligent effort and output.

On rare occasions, a Taurus may be obstinately and exasperatingly self-righteous, unoriginal, rigid, ultraconservative, argumentative, querulous bores, stuck in a self-centered rut. They may develop a brooding resentment through nursing a series of injuries received and, whether their characters are positive or negative, they need someone to stroke their egos with a frequent, “Well Done!” Most Taurus people are not this extreme though.
They are faithful and generous friends with a great capacity for affection, but rarely make friends with anyone outside their social rank, to which they are ordinarily excessively faithful. In the main, they are gentle, even-tempered, good-natured, modest and slow to anger, disliking quarreling and avoiding ill-feeling. If they are provoked, however, they can explode into violent outbursts of ferocious anger in which they seem to lose all self-control. Equally unexpected are their occasional sallies into humor and exhibitions of fun.
Taurus is ruled by Venus, a lovely goddess who didn’t deny herself many things. In ancient Roman mythology, Venus was the Goddess of Love, Beauty, and Pleasure, and Taurus has pretty much taken up where she left off. Bulls are fond of all things pretty, whether it’s in their home, at a museum or on the stage. Life as one sweet pas de deux is how the Taurus-born like it. To onlookers, this may look like so much materialism and blessed excess, but Bulls really aren’t interested in living without beauty in their lives. Beauty to the Bull also comes in the way of happy home life, one that includes a partner and a stable relationship.
Taurus values harmony in their personal lives, so they’ll work hard on keeping their mate happy. The Bull’s penchant for sensual pleasures, of course, can only help things along! Bulls can also be the sappiest of sentimentalists. Will all this overweening attention to their mate turn a Bull into a possessive mess? Probably not, although these folks do have to manage their tendency to latch on a bit tight. At the end of the day, however, TaurusÕs are true romantics and loyal to the core.
Strengths: Reliable, patient, practical, devoted, responsible, stable
Weaknesses: Stubborn, possessive, uncompromising

Practical and well-grounded, Taurus is the sign that harvests the fruits of labor. They feel the need to always be surrounded by love and beauty, turned to the material world, hedonism, and physical pleasures. People born with their Sun in Taurus are sensual and tactile, considering touch and taste the most important of all senses. Stable and conservative, this is one of the most reliable signs of the zodiac, ready to endure and stick to their choices until they reach the point of personal satisfaction.
