This profile indicates personality traits you will have if the zodiac sign of Taurus is prominent, but not necessarily your Sun sign, in your birth chart. If Taurus is your ascendant or Moon sign or if Venus is prominent these characteristics are likely to show.

The positions of, and relationships between, the planets in your birth chart will show the predispositions you have and how best to use them successfully in life in the world.

Don't know your Ascendant? Don't know your Moon sign? - and how they interact with the Sun and all the other planets and points in your birth chart? A consultation will give you all of this and many find that it gives them a tremendous boost in their search for meaning and fulfilment in their lives and in their relationships. You can have a consultation by telephone from anywhere in the world, or face to face in Minehead, Somerset (UK), recorded for you to keep.

Taurus Zodiac Sign - Basics:

Element: Earth, Quality: Fixed, Ruler: Venus.

Characteristic traits

Taurus enjoys the sensual world for it's own sake (compare Virgo which has to do something with it). Down to earth, pragmatic, will stubbornly pursue a task to completion without deviation once it has the impetus to get going (which may take a while).


Taurus has difficulty seeing beyond the end of its nose. Philosophy? The spiritual realm? Forget it! The earth is all there is and I'm going to enjoy it. So limited resources when the earth disappoints.

A word of advice

When in the depths of disillusionment and your own solutions show no signs of working, just consider the possibility (oh yes, I know, it's very unlikely) that there may be something in another's idea.


As a Taurus your ideal mate will be happy to indulge your big sensual and sexual appetite. Your habit of attracting partners with strange ideas and life paths which seem to you unnecessarily complex is frustrating I know, but whoever said relationships were straightforward? See Taurus Man or Taurus Woman for hints about your Taurus partner.

Taurus Star Sign - a Deeper Look

The function of Taurus, more than any other sign, is to witness to the value of the senses in human life. We are material beings with physical bodies which have needs and desires, and Taurus says, in effect, these needs are valid, the body's desires are to be valued and appreciated for their own sake. Good food, good wine, good sex, a beautifully furnished home and tastefully chosen clothing are all to be enjoyed, and can make Taureans feel good about themselves, and so make them more lively and satisfying contributors to human life as a whole.

After the exuberance, imagination and activity of the first sign of the zodiac, Aries, Taurus may seem to some rather slow and inert by comparison. But the spark which Aries provides would never take effect, would never be grounded in the physical world, unless there were people who could work out the practical implications and bring them to fruition.

Many who are sympathetic to astrology espouse deep spiritual values, and are seeking what is beyond the physical world, to put their lives into a framework of some form of ultimate divine meaning. Perhaps you know some of them, or may even be one yourself. Maybe you are often criticised by your more 'spiritual' or 'evolved' friends for being too earthbound and failing to seek a higher meaning to life. According to the law of opposites you are likely to attract such people into your sphere of influence! Listen to them, but do not be distracted from your enjoyment of the physical pleasures of life. For you, the path to the spiritual lies through the physical, as in some parts of Christianity the divine is approached through physical means called sacraments.

I mentioned that you may attract fiery spiritual people into your life whose values seem at odds with your own. This raises compatibility issues. Another energy you may attract is that represented by the sign opposite yours - Scorpio. For you, enjoyment of the physical world is a straightforward affair - why complicate it? Scorpio, however, says that you must get beneath the superficial appearance of things to the deeper significance, in particular the significance at the level of gut feeling. For Scorpio life must be intense at the feeling level, and they may get themselves involved in deeply complex situations just so that they can feel intensely engaged. Why? you might ask, especially if you love such a person with whom you strongly desire compatibility. Doesn't the sensual world provide pleasure enough by itself? No, not for some, and maybe not even for you in the long term, as we all have Scorpio energy in our birth charts somewhere.
