Astrology: Sun Signs Taurus
|If you were born when the sun was in Taurus, then you are
likely to be strong-willed, persevering and steadfast. The symbol for Taurus is the bull,
and when you are determined you are like a bull, and in a charge, nothing can stop you.
You may appear fairly calm and relaxed, but when something gets you going, then other
people had better watch out. You are practical and
grounded and show a great deal of discipline. You can be cooperative, artistic and even
The persistence of Taurus, compared with Aries, is strong and fixed. Whereas the Arians are quick to take action and follow their passion, the Taurians are slow to get started, but once they have built up their momentum, they are much more persistent in chasing their goals. The difference between Aries and Taurus here, is that Arians are quick to get started, whereas Taurians are slow. Taurians are concerned with practical and realistic ideas as they relate to their personal resources and wealth. Arians act in relation to motivations and enthusiasm, whereas Taurians are much more thoughtful in a practical way. They are cautious and careful in what they do.
As a Taurian, you are idealistic in a practical way. You may dream of building something which is real and can be visualised - something tangible; whereas Arianss, for example, are idealistic about an idea that fills them with passion and motivation. The idealism of Aries is fiery, whereas the idealism of Taurus is down-to-earth.
Taurians are well known for their concern with personal resources and wealth and Taurus's greatest fear is loss and poverty. For this reason they tend to be thrifty, and others might see this as being stingy or miserly. They see it as prudence and carefulness.
Taurians are steady, composed, courteous and even charming. They can appear as slow to other signs. They are dependable and loyal and seek to conserve what they have. They are scrupulous and honest in what they do, although this is a practical kind of honesty.
Taurians are productive. They can be charming,
affectionate and sometimes generous. They are calm and thoughtful in a practical way.
Where the other signs do not have the Taurian qualities, they may be wasteful, neglect their personal property and fail to complete what they have started.
Body PartsTaurus rules the neck, the ears, palate, larynx, tonsils, thyroid gland, lower jaw, occipital region, cerebellum, atlas, and cervical vertebrae, vocal chords, carotid arteries, jugular vein, and the pharynx.
