TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
SYMBOL: The Bull
RULING PLANET: Venus
COLOUR: Pink, lush green
BODY PARTS RULED BY THIS SIGN: Neck, throat, glands
The most dedicated of all zodiac signs, Bulls are famed for their determination in all aspects of life. You have a keen aesthetic sense and your affectionate nature, loyalty and problem-solving abilities top your list of best qualities. As for weaknesses, you can be stubborn, self-indulgent and overly materialistic.
Earnest, honest and genuine, you are regarded as the salt of the Earth. Possessing a grounded and realistic outlook, you have both feet planted firmly on the ground and are not easily swayed by fads, passing trends or the opinions of others.
Venus, your planetary ruler, bestows you with a unique appreciation for beautiful things. Often physically attractive, you can be found working in the beauty or fashion industry. As your sign rules the throat, many Bulls are gifted with a lovely singing voice.
Career and Money
Careers with clear set goals and structure appeal to earthy Bulls. When tasked with a specific project, you tend to become completely focused, even fixated, until the job is seen through to satisfactory completion. As you value life’s little luxuries, being well remunerated for your hard work is vital. In the workplace you are thoughtful, dedicated and consistent. However, in an unfulfilling job, you can become lazy, arrogant and stuck.
When it comes to money management, you are well organised with your finances. Bills tend to be paid on time, whenever possible. Spending extra cash on pampering treatments such a day spa, quality cosmetics or fine dining motivates you to grow your money tree and increase your earning capacity.
In relationships you are patient and protective. Once a new partner has earnt your trust, you are an energetic, robust and confident lover. Sexual pleasure is paramount, having the power to make or break a relationship that otherwise ticks all of your boxes. The most negative characteristic for taken Taureans is possessiveness, so resist the urge to become too clingy. Ruled by Venus, the planet of love, you express your feelings through your thoughtfulness and devotion to you partner.
Taureans are not always compatible with one another, as two bulls can lock horns. Both stubborn personalities can lead to a stalemate, with neither one willing to back down. You vibe high with fellow earth signs such as Virgo and Capricorn, while Scorpios seduce you with their air of mystery. Avoid Aquarians. They are too emotionally cool for your warm heart and Leo’s showy style suffocates your down-to-earth nature.
Family and Friendship
Bulls are 100% dedicated to their loved ones. Your family sees you as sensible, responsible, and generous. Whilst you are gently nurturing, especially towards children, at times you can come across as strict and controlling. which can cause conflict. Family members will always turn to you for guidance as you rarely let them down.
Friends come to you when they need someone to be upfront without the sugar coating. Occasionally, a lack of tactfulness can hurt the feelings of those closest to you. However, your overall good nature draws people towards you as they know you will always have their backs and come to their defense.
More susceptible to sore throats and head colds than most, you can be stubborn when it comes to seeking treatment for your ailments. You thrive on a consistent exercise routine where you know what to expect. A physical challenge with evidence that you are improving is important to you. Using a fitness tracker app or a fitbit can help you keep track of your progress.
Given that an expanding waistline often plagues Bulls, counterbalance your love for rich comfort foods with extra servings of fresh fruits, vegetables, and complex carbohydrates.
