Apr 20 - May 20
An earth sign, Taurus-born individuals are usually grounded, practical and realistic. However, they also are attracted to material and physical pleasures, and can be hedonistic. They actively look for and treasure the beautiful things in life. They consider touch and taste to be the most important of the five senses, and will regularly seek out things which stimulate those senses.

Whilst being hedonistic, Taurus can also be stable, reliable and conservative. They are practical and realistic, always seeing the most probable outcome and working according to that outcome. When they start a project, they will always see it to its completion. Commitment is a huge part of this star sign. This commitment makes them great friends, employees and lovers, often keeping these relationships for many years or even for a lifetime. But they have a love of money, and this can sometimes cloud their judgement and get in the way of important decisions about love or their career. Their loyalty comes from being governed by the planet of Venus, and it also gives them the characteristics of creativity, gratitude, and great affection. But they don’t like sudden changes, and are wary of criticism, especially when it comes from the people they love. They also are not accepting of liars, and will hold grudges against anyone who wrongs them.
Taurus and Love
Incredibly intimate, Taurus loves to please their partner, and also to receive pleasure themselves. But they also need to have a safe space to do so, and need to create a close and loving relationship beforehand. If not kept in check, their emotions can sometimes take over them, and they can become co-dependent on the other person, being needy and unsure of themselves. The love language of Taurus individuals is focused mainly on giving and receiving gifts, and they also value intellectual conversation, as well as intimate touch. They will often choose people for a relationship that are in the same social circles, and withhold the same values as themselves.
Taurus and Friends/Family
Many of the friends of Taurus began in childhood, and will tend to last a lifetime. They are loyal and always willing to lend a hand to friends in need. However, with new social contacts, they can be more closed off and take a while to build up trust. But once you become friends with a Taurus, you will have a friend for good. With family, they are very close, and appreciate time spent at home or with family members. They enjoy hosting dinner parties and other gatherings, and love being around kids. Traditions are important to them, but they also like creating new customs for their future family and friends to enjoy with them.
Taurus and Career
Being hard-working and reliable, this makes them a perfect employee to have in any company. They like sticking to routine, and will see a project right through to the end. However, they need to be constantly rewarded or praised for their work in order to gain a sense of value or purpose. They need to find worth in their work, but they are also motivated by money and financial gain. They want to have a career which helps support their sensual and exquisite tastes, and which also gives them the assurance that they on are the right life path. Occupations that suit Taurus-born individuals include: artist, banker, administrator, and accountant. They are especially adept at financial careers, or anything that involves numbers.
Taurus-born individuals are great people to have in your life, always loyal and willing to help.
