Taurus zodiac sign is the first earth sign in the zodiac. It is fixed in nature and is ruled by the planet Venus. Taureans are noted for their love of the Earth and it's cycles. They are very grounded in the expression of their energy. As such they can be very slow to move in to action and to initiate change. There is an earthly heaviness associated with the energy of this sign. Do not ask a Taurean to leave the comforts of his home and surroundings without a lot of resistance. Infact the word stubborn comes to mind quite often when we talk about Taurean energy, hence the fixed nature of the sign. It's not so much that they are difficult but it just takes a lot of momentum to get them moving. They follow their own rythms of time before they can begin a new task. On the other hand once a Taurean is engaged in a task they will see it right through to the end, there staying power is immense.
Taurus energy endows it's recipient with a love of all the sensual pleasures, taste, smell, hearing, sight and touch. This is very much connected with the beauty given to Taurus by the planet Venus. Taureans have a certain grace and charm and style about them. They like the finer things in life, good food and wine and beautiful objects. Don't ever damage or take away a Taureans favoured possession as they will soon let you know how attached they are to these things. American Indians say; "if you love something give it away so you own it and it doesn't own you". Taureans could take good note of this.
This is a tenacious, diligent and patient personality. Determination is a key feature of the Taurean personality as are inflexibility and a dislike of taking risks. They like routine and security and are extremely reliable, loyal and dutiful and make excellent team players. With the Taurean energy being so earthly, they are practical people - their heads are not in the clouds but in the here and now, often concentrated on manifesting physical wealth and comforts. They are often reliable and sensible even it takes them a while to get there.
CareersPeople with Taurus energy can use this energy in a number of professions. They make great gardeners as they are so in touch with the earth and it's beauty. They often make good farmers for the same sort of reason. They are also known to make great artists and musicians with their appreciation of the senses. With their connection to the earth they could also make good practical business people accumulating lots of wealth. Taurean energy that is distorted or misused could result in the person obsessed with food and drink, or someone bound to his material possessions or too lazy to get up and achieve anything.
In the interest of security, Taurus accumulate money in the bank, but also spends on quality luxury items. They spend on property and insurance and only invest after careful research.
