Taurus, the second sign of the zodiac, is an earth sign. It values material security and material possession. It is the consolidator - it understands the need to hold on to something, to nourish and cultivate it to fruition. Whether in business or a relationship. Never a quitter, Taurus has the patience to see things through to the end. Sometimes stubbornness and inflexibility get in the way of success, but Taurus has oodles of steady, determined, calm focus... until it blows it's top and lowers it's horns for a confrontation, which is usually a wall-shaking event.
Overall, Taurus is the holder of territory, a maintainer of property or the custodian of what it considers to be of quality and worth. It adores beauty of all kinds, especially in architecture and nature. It is connected to arts and crafts and talents of all kinds, but especially music.
Taurus' planet is the Goddess of love and beauty - Venus - and Taureans are often romantic in their outlook. Venus is also the money planet and Taureans often like to make money by working at something which brings pleasure, beauty or wellbeing to others.
Taurus rules the throat, neck and vocal chords, and natives often have a charismatic quality to their speaking or singing voice. They are tactile and body-centered and enjoy any pursuit where they can use their hands, or feel physical contact from others. It loves the pleasures of the flesh and prefers to spend it's day very centered in the pleasures of the present. They like feeding others but also are prone to temptation where such pleasures are concerned.
Taureans are good in a career which allows them to build up wealth or material objects, and will seek lifestyles which foster material stability, and peacefulness, but also to express their taste for beauty and their talents. They are very practical and so wish to generate the means by which they can live in the style they prefer.
