Sun in Taurus

Taurus natives are generally strong, quiet, deliberate, practical, exacting, determined, persistent, persevering, compassionate and loyal. They like getting their hands on their work, building things, and seeing the tangible, practical results of their effort. Routine work does not bother them as long as the end result in useful and serves some concrete purpose. Possessions and material things are usually of great significance to Taurus natives. This is because they don’t feel emotionally secure unless they can see and touch the objects they own. This intense need to possess and enjoy with the senses can drive Taurus natives to be extremely productive or extremely acquisitive. Lesser evolved Taurus natives can treat people as objects or possessions, thus leading to difficulty in relationships.

Taurus people work at a slower pace than most, but they always finish whatever projects they start. Because of this, they are reliable, trustworthy, careful and steadfast. They are better at sustaining what others have started rather than starting things themselves. Taurus natives can be lead, but never pushed. It takes a lot to make a Taurus mad, yet if they are pushed over the edge, well, all heck can break lose. Simply imagine an angry bull and you know what a Taurus is capable of when he is pushed too far. You know the saying about a bull in a china shop, right? When angered, Taurus natives need plenty of time to cool down. It is best to just leave them alone. You will know when things are out of their system. With anything Taurus natives need time to assimilate and mull things over. Don’t rush them or push them.

Taurus natives are slow to change their opinions, but once changed it is very difficult to change them back. People tend to feel secure around Taurus natives. In times of crisis they are generally cool and collected and have the patience and ability to come up with practical solutions to problems. Taurus natives hate pain and being sick.

Taurus natives have a love of harmony and beauty and they can be extremely affectionate and romantic. But, they do have a decided fear of loss. The feelings that usually accompany this fear of loss are possessiveness, jealousy, laziness, stubbornness and extravagance. If there is no desire to possess anything or anyone, then there is no fear of loss. Taurus natives need to learn to desire only mental and spiritual things and to release the desire to possess people emotionally and physically. Their other need is to find a true sense of values. They need to learn detachment. They must be willing to let go of people and things.

Taurus is Fixed Earth, and its keyword is "I have". Symbolized by the Bull, it rules the neck and throat in the body. The first of the four serpent signs of the zodiac, Taurus represents latent or coiled up will and power, not yet fully expressed. It symbolizes matter, substance, and receptivity: the fertile earth of spring receiving the outrushing seed of Aries. You are earthy, sensual and sexual, and love to touch and to be touched. Slow, steady and stubborn, you can’t be pushed, and need plenty of time to digest your experiences or to get accustomed to new ones. Possessions and material objects are very important to you, and you need to guard against possessiveness, jealousy and greed. You will often focus in this life on developing a sense of values that transcends that which you can possess.
