Stable Stubborn Taurus
As we continue our journey through the zodiac we come to the sign of Taurus, the Bull. Elementally, Taurus is an earth sign interested in what is tangible. Taurus as a rule, is not interested in philosophical conversations, they are more interested in what‘s for dinner.
There is singularity of purpose with Taurus and it all comes down to survival, and once that is assured, it comes down to comfort. No other sign has a more comfortable, comfort zone. And no other sign is more ‘stuck’ in their comfort zone than Taurus.
Because their major motivation is stability they can often find themselves in situations that are less than optimal, yet they stay there because that’s what they know. This can be frustrating for friends, family and lovers who know their Taurus can do better. Unsolicited advice is generally not a good idea with anyone, but especially with Taurus! And even if they ever get around to asking your advice about something the chances of them taking it are slim to none. Knowing this can save you a lot of frustration when dealing with a Taurus
So why do we stay with these stubborn ‘bull headed’ folk? To sum it up in one word, dependability. Taurus will always be there for you. They may not buy you extravagant gifts, take you on that trip of a lifetime to Italy, or go out dancing, but they will be there when you need someone to pick you up from the side of the road when your car has broken down. Or they will always have a ‘special’ cushy chair for you when you need a place to escape your hectic life and find a little peace. They’ll even have snacks for you to make you feel extra special. You will never go hungry or be let down by a Taurus, not when it’s something that comes naturally to them.
And speaking of what comes natural to them…Money. Yes, Taurus is the money sign. They have it and they keep it. They are much more generous with their time than their pocketbook, yet if you need new tires, or a loan to get your roof fixed, Taurus is your sign. They will expect to get paid back, but you can take your time about it. They don’t rush, so they don’t generally expect you to rush. And they only give if they are in a position to give.
“Slow and steady wins the race” is a Taurean saying if ever there was one. They do move forward, albeit slowly. Yet in that slow pace they create deep roots that can give them longevity and give their creations longevity. Some famous Tarueans with long careers are Cher, Barbara Streisand, and Al Pacino. And those Taureans whose creations have long outlived their lives, include William Shakespeare, Malcolm X and Karl Marx.
So whether it’s a good meal, a ride to the airport, a beautiful sonnet, or an awesome foot rub, Taurus makes this world a much more hospitable place. And for this we are grateful.
