The Taurus sign is dependable, patient and a lover of all that is beautiful. The first earth sign in the zodiac, Taurus cherishes stability and sensuality and anything soft, silky, luxurious and rare. Material possessions rule this zodiac sign but not in a greedy “gotta have it all” way . . . there is just so much to be enjoyed in life!
Taurus loves good food, stunning art, long baths, meaningful sex, silky fabric, and deep and lasting love. Just like the earth, this sign reminds the rest of the zodiac signs that pleasures are meant to be enjoyed and there is beauty in everything and everyone.
Life isn’t always fun and games, however, and while Taurus does like to keep the peace and stay calm, they can and will get angry if pushed enough. This isn’t something they like to do, but they will defend themselves or a loved one with the loyalty that only a bull has.

Taurus are sensual souls that crave stability and financial gain. They are determined and hard workers that excel in professions where they can be creative and relied upon to lead and contribute in a meaningful way.
Thinking fast under pressure is a skill, as well as keeping the peace between coworkers. You want this sign on your side when the going gets tough because they can carry much more than their own weight and responsibility.
