The Taurus Personality

Out of all the 12 signs of the zodiac, Taureans are the biggest pain in the butt to many people because of their stubborn, controlling, possessive attitude to life in general. They are very good at giving advice, and love to get into your ear about any matter they think they are the experts in, but they are not too happy about accepting advice from others who may know more about a subject than they do. Taureans are like a dog with a bone; they will never let go of a situation, always holding on, afraid that someone may take away what is theirs. Taureans are known as the exaggerators of the zodiac and some do have a tendency of telling half-truths at times or blowing things out of propor­tion when communicating with others. Financial and emotional security is important to them, as they are insecure and at times very selfish people. They need to know what their regular daily routine is and that certain things will always happen at certain times. They totally dread the thought of not having any money in their old age and it is said you will find that many Taureans of the past are some of the richest people in the graveyard, because they are too mean to spend any of their wealth.  Taureans can never be pushed into making a decision about anything; they need to have a good procrastinating think about it first. This is why they miss out on bonus opportunities in their life, due to the fact they are still standing at the station when the goods train has departed.


Taurus in Love

Taureans are extremely passionate, although very slow at times to get the relationship moving at a fast pace. They make excellent, stable partners, but they must learn to control their possessive attitude. The need to be touched and loved is very strong in them and although they can sustain themselves for great lengths of rime without emotional and sexual contact, their natural glow seems to fade if affection is not forthcoming. Sexuality plays a major part in a Taurean's life. Although they are driven by a healthy animal lust they are also very practical about making a commitment; but when they do they will always feel better, more alive and stimulated after a good sex romp with their partner. One good thing about their sexuality and love is that they possess a good dose of consistency and endurance. They toe good hearted and generous with their lover and will go to any lengths to make their partner happy. In return, however, they insist on staying power and total loyalty.

The Ideal companion for them would be someone who enjoys making love with a little spice and variety, someone who can experiment and introduce them to new and exciting forms of lovemaking. Taurus needs more pleasure than excitement and it is important for them to experience the fulfilment of love from the top of their head to the bottom of their toes. There is a wide spectrum of individuals that appeal to them and they also attract to the more rugged type of individual, especially one with a high sex drive. One thing they should always remember; they will never find true love by controlling the people around them and their environment. They should never invest their emotions in people who are not truly worth it; otherwise sorrow will come knocking at their door.


Health and Wellbeing

Taurus governs the neck and throat, muscles and veins. Usually the constitution is exceptionally strong and robust. The neck and throat being the weakest parts, Taureans are subject to sore throats, diphtheria, mumps, quinsy and tumours, in the region of the throat. They are also liable to heart and kidney problems, blood disorders, diabetes, problems of the generative system, veins and sexual organs. Laziness is fatal to their health, so work and exercise are their best medicine, together with less food and alcohol.


Career and Occupation

Taureans can be plodders and their motto could be "slow but sure". Taureans love trust and responsibility, where a sense of material values and practicality is a part of their everyday routine. They can be artistic and have a produc­tive flair that can be exercised in the absence of urgency, risk of sudden changes or insecurity. Taureans can be patient, persevering and economical, and prefer a routine job with a pension at the end.  They are not afraid of hard physical work and do not worry about getting their hands dirty. Many Taureans attract to the outdoors and make good fanners, gardening and horticulture experts, landscapes, bricklayers, builders and prospectors.

Taurus is also attracted to anything beautiful, elegant and colourful, and people of this sign can be great artists, beauticians, hairdressers, fashion designers, florists, interior decorators, jewellers, models, musicians, travel and resort managers, confectioners and milliners. They certainly don't like to be rushed off their feet where work is concerned and the fast lane or rat race is not the place for them. They are much happier when they can go at their own pace, take control of the work situation at hand and operate at their own speed. Taureans love money and security and would enjoy working in the banking industry, stock market, accountancy, insurance or investment consulting. Taureans also make good pay-office clerks, cashiers and government employees. As long as they have their material and emotional security at hand they will always be happy; however; their biggest problem is greed. They always want more. Taurus children have great intelligence and fantastic mental abilities. Parents should help them find a way to combine their excellent reasoning power with their feelings. Taureans can be successful in business and will endeavour to make lots of money, for material security is important to them. They could follow a career in investment brokerage, import-export business, the travel industry, sales, the stock exchange, electronics, aviation, computers, art, writing, music, singing, composing, creative design, media, banking, biology, cosmetics, antiques, retail floristry, fruit growing, farming, restaurants, business administration, office work as a personal assistant, confectionery manufacturing, interior decorating, money lending or gym instruction.


The Taurus Woman

The Taurus woman is usually cool, calm and attentive, with an aloof exterior. She can be attractive and she likes to wear the finest clothes, jewellery and perfume. A Taurus woman needs to be needed, touched and hugged, as physical contact is important to her. She certainly loves to frequent nice restaurants, eating the best gourmet food; however she usually prefers her own environment and enjoys entertaining at home with family and friends.  The Taurus woman can be very fixed in her ways, a trait that gives her obstinacy, persistence, tenacity and dependability, together with a pompous, self-righteous air. Material resources are extremely important to her, as she has this need to possess and control her life independently. She is also possessive other family and loved ones. Let no one try to steal her husband or lover - it is like waving a red rag in front of a bull.

Taurus women can be greedy and jealous of the wealth, success or beauty of their peers. The Taurus woman lives a simple yet complex life; she can be resourceful and has the knack of manipulating resources and people to get her own way. She is extremely self-conscious, creative and habit-bound. She usually sticks to the same routine and seldom likes change or interruptions to the way she does things. She can really dig in her heels and then stubbornly refuse to acknowledge it. You can certainly trust a Taurus woman with your money and secrets; she truly believes that honesty is the best policy. Her word is like a written contract; she will always stand by it. Taurus women love to be organised at home or at work. Their built-in time clock computes how much time they will allocate to their different tasks. Taurus women are usually punctual for appointments and meetings, and can be relied on for running (functions, seminars or even the family birthday party. Comfort and contentment are always important to the Taurus woman. Her self-indulgences are boundless; keeping her weight down can sometimes be a problem. The Taurus woman is a godsend in an emergency or tragedy; she has the ability to handle the most delicate situations for others in a cool methodical manner. If you need a dose reliable friend, look no further than a Taurus woman.


The Taurus Man

Taurus men are usually extremely practical, with their feet firmly set on the ground. They can be very protective and, in many cases, noticeably possessive of their partners and anything that belongs to them. They are most consistent and dependable, although you can never push a Taurus into anything quickly. As a realist, a sensible and cautious person, Taurus likes to think issues and decisions through thoroughly and move carefully. Taurus men are basically very genuine, steadfast and constant in their affections. Others will value their sincerity and reliability highly, as it is easy to build a relationship based on trust and fidelity with Taurus men. Home and family will always be of utmost importance to a Taurean. He cherishes his surroundings and will love and protect his family. He will always take his responsibilities seriously. Strong, loyal family ties are important to these men and they love to establish roots and settle down.

The Taurus nature is immovably stubborn, proud and, in many cases, extremely selfish. When this man makes his mind up or takes a stand, he will not back down. Most Taurus men do not like too much change in their daily routine; they become very uptight or unsettled under the pressure of continuous variety. Success and winning are important to Taurus men; they thrive on the exhilaration, and it is important to them to be seen to be successful. The respect of their peers, particularly the people they admire, will sweeten their satisfaction even more. Taurus men make good managers; they are thorough and like to be organised in whatever they do. Unfortunately, due to their insecurities, they have a tendency to procrastinate and bend the truth at times, or even avoid the issue at hand. Taurus men are not motivators, nor do they like to venture out in front, breaking new ground or establishing new paths. They would prefer to have others do the dirty work, while they get the credit for it.


Taurus in 2016



Major Trends

GENERAL HIGHLIGHTS: A very special year is indicated as lucky Jupiter spends from January to September in your sector of luck, entertainment, social activities, sport, travel, children, relaxation, creative activities and social life. Your home and environment should be secure and domestic matters will occupy your mind and this is a good year for making decisions relating to home and family life. Your sense of timing is extremely good now and, as luck will seem to have it, you will probably conveniently find yourself in the right place at the right time. Personal relations with others can improve and disputes can be sorted out once and for all.

During January and February expect much pressure on yourself in the work scene and you will also be open to new opportunities for advancement. Creative activities will be attracting you this year as well opportunities connected with art, music, theatre, design or writing. With lucky Jupiter in your entertainment area you may feel more optimistic within yourself and willing to try new ways of doing things to improve your status or quality of life. This is a time to plan for greater personal security, an excellent cycle to negotiate important changes or reconstruct your life’s direction. These may take the form of people, places, lifestyles, relationships, jobs, behavioral patterns and habits.

From August to December you are capable of great mental effort during this period and your energy is extremely high. However, you are likely at times to be very irritable and touchy, especially if you imagine your ego is threatened. Your anger will be simmering, and with Mars in the independent sign of Sagittarius, Capricorn and Aquarius during the cycle, you may unconsciously make a sarcastic remark that can provoke others. Think before you speak and try to avoid fights, verbal confrontations and other emotional situations.

2016 is a good year for any physical work around the home or office, clear out junk, remove old files, shampoo the carpets or redecorate. If you can keep your cool throughout the year, much can be accomplished, both physically and mentally. You could also have brilliant success with examinations, tests, interviews, or a new venture or job start. You will feel extra energetic this year, avoid overdoing things or your health may suffer.

Attempt to simplify and reduce your life to absolute basics by systematically separating from situations that are no longer relevant or sustainable. This is a positive year to visit your doctor or dentist for a general check-up. 

RELATIONSHIPS: Venus will extract much love for you in the months of March, April, May, August and October and during this period you will certainly have your love life dripping with passion. This year will certainly help you bring everything out into the open and will allow you to take care of any family or personal problems that may be troubling you.  However, care should be taken throughout this busy year especially between the months of February and June as you may be impatient with certain restrictions or added responsibilities in your life, real or imagined, that you become disruptive in your close personal relationships. 

Avoid possessiveness and intense emotional upsets either instigated from yourself or from someone close to you. Minor criticism could spark power struggles or emotional maneuvering if care is not taken. The results may be neither pretty nor pleasant. On the other hand, such an encounter may provide the impetus for self-analysis, which, though you may not enjoy it, may prove to be useful. During this time, put reason before emotion or sentimentality. You will be very aware of the difference between reality and illusion.

You are in the process of inner change and transition throughout this year. Taking a bold step, past the point of no return, away from former structures and securities may be required now for you to succeed emotionally.
The practical workings of any relationship concern you now and you could not pick a better year to talk out and work out any misunderstandings in your love life if you put your mind to it?

CAREER, OPPORTUNITIES AND LUCK: With such an array of planetary aspects in your horoscope, this is one of the few years that can truly be characterized as fortunate. It can bring about unexpected breaks and good fortune, as well as a feeling of being free and able to take on anything life has to offer. You are more daring than usual and more willing to experiment with life. Everyone has restrictions in life that sometimes seem to get in the way of growth, but we seldom are in a position to ignore them completely.

This year, especially from March onward, could bring positive circumstances, sometimes sudden and sometimes subtle, which would allow you to break away from some of these restraints. Travel, new job opportunities, new study interests, new spiritual insights, may be available to you.

This is a good year for entertaining, or throwing a dinner party for friends and loved ones, you will easily attract others to you and you need emotional stimulation.

Overall, 2016 represents an enormous opportunity to broaden yourself, enjoy new experiences, and expand your inner growth. It is likely to make your life much more interesting and rewarding. A financial matter proves extremely successful, you may decide to extend your credit facilities, borrow a large sum of money, or you may strike it rich through the stock market, luck and good fortune.

Substantial gains can be made in real estate, new business ventures, travel, cultural pursuits and entertainment. You may take up a new lifestyle that will be affordable through increased income or good luck.
