Taurus Personality Profile:

The second sign of the Zodiac, Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and desire. A strong and solid sign, Taurus governs practicality and security. It is an earth sign and very magnetic.

Practical, reliable Taureans are great lovers of sensual pleasures, although they do tend to be rather stubborn, possessive and conservative. Firmly anchored in the material world, they have a fine grasp of what is needed in order to lead the good life. Of course, Taureans are capable in emergencies, where they have an instinctive understanding of what to do, but under normal circumstances, no-one can force them into anything without due time for thought and consideration.

Taurus rules the throat, giving a powerful, often beautiful voice. The influence of Venus opens up a world of musical talent and appreciation, so Taureans are good singers and musicians, or at least, love music and can be a force on the business side of music.

Health problems are often focused on problems to do with the throat and neck, or by polarity with the reproductive organs, the kidneys and so on. Taurus is naturally lazy and tends to overindulge, so a good approach to health and wellbeing would include a well-planned regime of disciplined exercise and diet.

Taureans are very strong-willed and often quite creative. The Moon is exalted in Taurus, giving success with matters to do with the public and, combined with the influence of Venus, a passionate nature endowed with a strong sense of loyalty and fidelity. Taureans are kind and generous with friends, with whom they develop an unspoken rapport.

Hunky Taurus is physically strong and solidly built. Many of them favor weight lifting or other body-building routines to keep in shape and they enjoy sports requiring strength and endurance. They also like to putter around the garden, and delight in other outdoor activities: picnics, hikes, trips to botanical gardens or the zoo. They tend to be rather subdued, but also have a fine sense of humor, and enjoy social life.
