Ever since I first heard the word astrology I have been curious about what it’s all about. Terms like sun signs, bio rhythms, and zodiac all made me wonder what kind of drugs were being consumed by the people who were practicing this stuff. I think what got me started on my research of everything celestial was the psychic Ms. Cleo. If you don’t remember Ms. Cleo from the late night infomercial’s then you either don’t own a television or are under the age of ten.
But this article isn’t about Ms. Cleo. It’s a look at the life of a Taurus. After reading about typical characteristics and behaviors of my zodiac sign, I got kind of creeped out because it was all true. I know that a lot of skeptics think that the zodiac information is vague and could describe anyone, but everything was right on the money. I even read different sign’s profiles to see if their characteristics were anything like mine and they weren’t.
There are twelve signs in the zodiac: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. Your sign is based on your birthday and each sign has either an animal or some other symbol that corresponds with that sign’s personality. All signs also are governed by one of the these four elements: earth, fire, air, or water. These represent your emotions. There are also planets assigned to each sign, but I still don’t know what the significance of this is.
As a Taurus, I am represented by the bull and governed by the element earth. My planet is Venus for whatever reason. All I know is that the goddess Venus was the goddess of love in mythology, so Taurus is the most sensual of all the signs.
A Taurus is infamous for being very stubborn or “bull” headed. We love material goodies and the finer things in life, like good food, silk sheets, and long bubble baths in Chanel No. 5. We also love money, but not the money itself. We love the financial stability we get from it. Taurus’s basic need is stability. This means in the home, in their relationships, and in their bank accounts.
Taurus is known for being laid back, loyal, and prone to snuggle, but on the flip side they also tend to be jealous and lazy. We are also very determined and steadfast. Once we set out to do something, then expect it to be done even if it may take a while. Slow and steady is our motto.
Taurus is also known for their sensual side. We love romance and enjoy expressing our feelings with warm caresses and physical love. Don’t expect to get bored in the bedroom with a bull as your partner, for we are also known for our stamina.
We tend to be plump, yet voluptuous and sexy at the same time. A Taurus typically has a stocky figure and round face. Our eyes are usually large and inviting, but not in a raw sexual manner, but rather in a warm tender way. Having large shoulders and a stout physique makes a Taurus particularly well suited for tough manual labor.
There are many different aspects to any zodiac sign, such as sun signs and ascendants. I have never really grasped these detailed and rather confusing concepts but am quite content with discovering new things about my sign. There are even compatibility charts that tell you how your sign will get along with another sign. These are also quite accurate.
I love being a Taurus. I get to be lazily determined, jealously loyal, and sensually plump! Might sound confusing to some, but it suits me just fine. You’ll just have to learn about your own sign to see what the stars say about you. You may be surprised!
