The Taurus Zodiac Sign Traits in Astrology
Taurus, the Bull, is the second Zodiac sign in the horoscope. Taurus belongs to the element earth and the fixed quality. The Taurus Zodiac sign is that of the settler, who cultivates the earth and ensures everyone's livelihood. The peasant of old, the worker who carries society on his shoulders. Taurus has trust in what's palpable.
The Taurus Zodiac sign in the horoscope is conservative and stubborn, doubting there's much good in novelties or change. We know what we have, but not what we get. That's from a firm understanding about the basics of life, such as the farmer experiences. We sow and we reap, we are born and we die, winter is followed by spring and summer by autumn. These things remain the same, and man does best to faithfully adapt to them. That's the base of the Taurus horoscope.
The Taurus horoscope trait is to observe and respect what the hands can touch, while the rest is more or less something of the imagination and should be dealt with accordingly. So, the Taurus Zodiac sign makes it a point to be slow to adapt to new things, whether they be inventions or emotions. But when finally a change is adapted, that will be the norm forever on.
The archetype of the Taurus Zodiac sign in the horoscope is the farmer, making use of the soil and remaining close to nature. But cultivating it and feeding of it, not just passively marvelling at its beauty. According to Taurus, beauty is something of the imagination.
Feelings, on the other hand, are alive in the Taurus horoscope, although they can also be said to stem from the imagination. But they are felt, as clearly as if belonging to the senses, so Taurus can indulge in them - be it cautiously at first. By time, they can grow to passion. Taurus has no objection to experiencing what it is to be alive.
Those with Taurus as their horoscope Zodiac sign are born with the sun in it, between April 20 and May 21. For more about the Taurus Zodiac sign influence in the horoscope, see the links in the menu to the left and below.
Taurus Horoscope TraitsThe Taurus Zodiac sign, starting when spring makes everything in nature sprout, is the horoscope sign of the down-to-earth settler, with the traits of one who takes care of the land and everything on it. The practical mind, doubting everything that's not palpable. It doesn't have to be farming or handicraft, but those types of occupations fit the Taurus Zodiac sign very well.

Taurus CompatibilityThe Taurus Zodiac sign, which is that of the steady settler, belongs to the element earth, which is that of material things and the handling of them. So do Virgo and Capricorn, but that doesn't necessarily mean Taurus is particularly compatible with them - they might be quite unattracted to one another. Nor for that matter is the Taurus Zodiac sign always incompatible with, say, the air signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.
All the astrological traits of each Zodiac sign have to be considered when examining their compatibility. Read more about what it means to the Taurus horoscope here:
