Your superpowers: Steady, stubborn, strong, sensual, earthy, determined, practical
Despite the bullish comparisons, Taureans as Earth signs are usually calm and practical and are often relatively gentle. Tactility runs through the sign, which makes pausing to touch and play with things, people included, high on the agenda. You're a stop, smell and stroke the roses kind of person.
Stubbornness is where the animalism comes into it - you're frequently found standing your ground, refusing to be moved, literally and figuratively. A personal development point that's well worth taking into account.
Attention to detail
Your grounded, earthy, sensual ways are legendary. Ruled by Venus, goddess of love and beauty, you know how to saunter slowly, always taking your time to smell the flowers.
You’re extremely tactile, and like to run your fingers over objects (lovers included). If a meadow full of wild violets is unavailable, you’ll just as happily keep yourself busy with other pleasures of the flesh. Cooking, preparing food, and of course eating can also fulfil your need for lusty indulgence.
You’re best known for being stubborn, lovely Bull. This is because you will stand your ground, come what may, which isn’t a bad thing when used with positive intent. The only problem is when you fold your arms over your chest and refuse to even listen to other people’s point of view, simply because you don’t want to bother with being challenged.
You’re also a creature of habit, and can get stuck in ruts that keep you from moving forward. This can happen in relationships, jobs, and sometimes with your exercise routine. You have to force yourself to change things up every now and then, just in order to push yourself out of those all-too-familiar comfort zones.
Taurus rules the throat, making self-expression a vital part of your existence. You must have creative outlets each and everyday. Have a tendency to lock up your emotions? Do something about it ASAP, or else you might suffer from sore throats. Speaking of your throat, you might be blessed with a knockout singing voice. Try it out, even if you think you’re not any good. Belting out your favourite Adele track in the shower does count, Ms. Bull.
Taurus Compatibility - Love and Sex
Human beings are high on your list of amenities: you like to have the loveliest, most creative ones in your presence at all times. When it comes to relationships, try to avoid the boring or ultra-stable kinds of partners you usually go for because they feel safe.
Think out of the box when it comes to lovers – you need someone that stimulates your senses and forces you to take risks. Seek out a totally transformative partner, one that sort of scares you into bold acts of creative power.
Do NOT date a coach potato, because that will give you too good an excuse to be lazy. A lover who’s willing to cook for you, while you watch, is the biggest turn-on of all. No sign can keep it going all night like you can – that Taurean stamina is the stuff of legends. But no matter what – don’t get too comfortable because when the boring creeps in, your communication can grind to a halt.
Taurus Beauty and Style
Speaking of comfort, you may have a strong attraction to the good life.
Striking, supple possessions are extremely important to you. From bags to shoes to furniture, you want the best (and preferably handmade) stuff. This isn’t because you’re overly concerned about status, it’s because you need to be surrounded by loads of beauty, the more sensual, the better. You like to run your fingers over your stuff. You adore texture. Your worst nightmares include scenarios in which you have to leave home in a rush and can’t pack your favourite things. You adore earthy colours, florals, and any hues that remind you of tending to a lush garden.
