Taurus, represented as a bull, is is a peace loving sign that can also be a force of nature. As a fixed sign, you can count on predictability, stability and loyalty. With this fixity also comes determination and stubbornness.
Taureans are known to have long memories. This could be very helpful as they work their way to the top. Generally a peaceful sign, although Taureans can let things go, they will never forget. Push them too hard or one too many times and you will see the proverbial bull in the china shop.
Ruled by the planet Venus, Taureans are attuned to the finer things in life. Harmonious colors, savory foods, quality fabrics, pleasant music, and comfortable surroundings. Although romantic, they are very practical too.
They have a decisive and methodical mind. Second to Sagittarius, Taureans have high integrity. Practical as ever, Taureans can't be bothered with keeping track of lies and creating façades. They are also one of the strongest of the signs - in soul and physical strength. They need to be careful though - the combination of their fixity and love of food can given them a tendency towards weight gain.
If you have a Taurus in your life, you can count on a loyal, dependable, kind-hearted person who you never have to worry about.
