21 April – 21 May
Taurus is a fixed, feminine earth sign ruled by Venus – the Roman goddess of love, beauty and pleasure. Very much like the goddess, the typical Taurus possesses a penchant for luxury and, should circumstances allow, revels in delicious excess. With a natural creative flair and an eye for aesthetics, the sensual bull will work tirelessly to have beauty in their lives – and perhaps herein lies the Taurus paradox. Sometimes misunderstood and perceived as frivolous and materialistic, most can easily overlook a Taurean’s incredible steadfast, loyal, determined and practical nature. They certainly do not shy away from hard work and nor are they looking for a fast track to success.
To describe a Taurus as uncomplicated would also be a mistake. Very little happens to them that does not get filed away somewhere deep in the recess of their minds. Thus the bull is well known for their ability to hold a grudge, but on the flip-side would never let an act of kindness (however small) go unrewarded.
