Taurus -The Bull
April 20 to May 20
Taurus is an Earth Sign
This sign can be called the sign of strength. Alongside there is a deep-rooted stubborn nature which is practically impossible to change. Venus, the governing planet, is emotional and takes these Taurian trends rather than repressing them. This explains the sympathetic side of a nature that is very strong willed. The Taurean can be won over more by emotion than by reason. Taurus persons are opportunists but Taureans can accept what is in store for them rather than chasing after them – though some do call them opportunists. . Ideas are absorbed and retained by them. This is because of an outstanding memory usually associated with them. Taureans are foresighted – planning ahead and usually can successfully complete any project. Another facet is that they tend to look on any borrowed ideas as being their original.

This sign is indelibly associated with excesses and are tactile to say the least, enjoying tenderness and sensuality. Comfort and luxury are almost essential pleasures for the Taurean. A sumptuous meal and a good wine are all elements of a good life, highly appealing to a Taurean.

However, once a Bull achieves what he is pursuing, they will splurge and indulge in a lot of material comforts. This cannot really be considered self-indulgent in view of the very hard labour they put in.Venus, a rather self-indulgent beautiful lady, who did not deny herself much. In ancient Roman mythology, Venus was the Goddess of Love with all that it entailed. It can well be said thatTaureans have pretty much taken over from where she cried halt.
