Taurus in Combined Astrology
The Western Zodiac sign of Taurus symbolizes patience, dependability, and strength through determination. They have a strong need for security, both financially and emotionally. Taureans are famous for their stubbornness which sometimes hinders but mostly helps them. Members of this sign can hang in there long after most others have given up. The Taurus stubbornness can be frustrating to others, especially when Taureans refuse to do something just because they were told to.
They are loyal and generous friends who are always willing to lend a hand, though they will have a harder time parting with money this way because it contradicts their deep seeded need for financial security. The Taurus stubbornness can be frustrating to others, especially when Taureans refuse to do something just because they were told to. Taurus prefers to keep a few close friends rather than be part of a large group. They need to have time to themselves and don’t like to open themselves up to people they don’t know well. Taureans are also rather self-indulgent and enjoy comfort and luxury more than most other signs.
Taureans don’t like to take risks. Deep down they have a lot of fears and anxieties, almost all of which also have to do with a need for security, but they will put them aside and fight persistently for what they believe in. This is not a particularly adventurous sign. Taurus prefers to build on an existing foundation rather than venture out into the wilds of life. Despite their anxieties, Taureans typically appear cool and confident on the outside. In love they are one of the most romantic signs in the Western Zodiac, though they are also one of the most withdrawn.
Taurus in Combined Astrology
Combined Astrology is the merging of the 12 signs of the Western zodiac with the 12 animal signs of the Chinese zodiac. I find it a very interesting and accurate form of Astrology and it is perhaps the type that I know the best. Most people are always fascinated when they read their combined sign for the first time. It really does help define who you are, questions that you may have had about yourself that your normal astrological sign hadn’t been able to answer completely can normally be answered using this method. Almost everyone knows there western sign, Aries, Taurus, Gemini etc but not everyone knows about there Chinese sign.
Unlike the western signs, which are taken from the date of your birth, Chinese astrology is more concerned with the year of your birth and each sign begins on the Chinese New Year. There are 12 animals, The Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. Each sign comes around every 12 years, for example I was born in 1978 which was the year of the Horse. The next Horse year after that was in 1990, 12 years later.
The 12 signs of the Chinese Zodiac affect Taurus in different ways. The following analyses show the difference between different kinds of Taurus.
