Taurus is characterized as reliable, patient, steady, and trustworthy. Those born in the sign of the bull are either sensually elegant or very earthy. Their strength is that they can survive the most difficult of challenges.
As a fixed sign, Taureans don't like change; they'll think things through before acting. But at the same time, sometimes they need to learn to let go rather than hanging on to a losing situation. And when working with a Taurus, avoid approaching them with a philosophy that says "my way or the highway," unless of course you want to hit the road.
The 2nd house is Taurus's "natural" location, and in their homes Taurean people like beautiful and luxurious items, especially well-made possessions of long-term value and durability.
Through Venus, Taurus brings beauty and earthly healing to the world. It is not uncommon to see artists, singers, and massage therapists with a Taurean influence in their chart.
Taurus rules the throat, thyroid gland, wealth, beauty, and wheat fields.
