Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Character Traits of the Astrological Sun Sign Taurus
You won’t get much argument out of a Taurus if you call them stubborn, inflexible and unchanging. Most of them see their inherent stability and practicality as a virtue. Taurus loves good food, a good laugh, and the finer things in life, anything that feels good in a “touchy-feely” way. You can leave a Taurean for years, but count on them to be the “same old Joe” years later. They do kind of get stuck in their ways – but they are usually comfortable with that. They don’t feel the need to brag, to blow their own horns, in fact, if you want to confide a secret and be sure it will be kept, make friends with a Taurus. You can count on this sign to back you up once they have decided to make you part of their “collection of oddities”. And they do like to collect – both people and tchotchkes. Astrologers don’t talk much about “imagination” and Taurus, but in my experience, Taurus people are greatly imaginative, perhaps because of the strong influence from Venus. George Lucas is a Taurus, and there is no arguing he’s one of the great creative visionaries of our time. Their path to success is not usually the rocket-fast path, they pick a slow, steady pace, and once they have decided they want something, they almost always get their way. Perhaps under-rated as lovers because of their dowdy reputation (and lack of interest in bragging), the true Taurus type is in fact one of the more romantic and passionate, if at times unimaginative lovers. They are faithful and reliable to a fault.
