Taurus zodiac sign is represented by the symbol of
'The Bull' and just like a bull, a Taurus person is strong and silent.
In the first instance, a Taurean comes across as extremely quiet and
reserved person. Only after you get close to him will you have a proper
conversation, rather than simple monologues. He moves deliberately and
is as steady as the 'Rock of Gibraltar'. Once a Taurus has made up his
mind, it is impossible to move him even slightly. If you leave him
alone, a Taurean will come across as a very easygoing person.
You push him somewhat and he becomes stubborn. Still trying to make him
budge, beware of the violent temper. A Taurus person is hardly impulsive
and never gets angry without a reason. Infact, he has the perfect
control over his emotions. However, when a Taurus does get angry, it is
better not to get in the way or you are bound to get trampled. The anger
also takes time to come down. He is quite attracted to the opposite sex,
but attracting people to himself seems more preferable to him.
One of the typical personality traits of a Taurus is passivity. You can
count on him to be there when you need him, but he will never be the one
to call on you. At the same time, he will know 'what to do' and 'how to
do it'. Worrying, fretting or getting nervous is definitely not one of
Taurus characteristics. It is in his nature to be stable and stoic. He
takes his decisions slowly, after careful considerations. Taurus people
love their home and change upsets them. Don't tell a Taurus that he's
stubborn; he'll never believe it. He thinks himself to be patient, not
Taureans have this amazing quality of bearing emotional and physical
pain, even for years, without grieving or complaining. The more the
troubles come pouring in, the stronger he will come out to be. A Taurus
is nothing if not loyal and dedicated to his family and friends. He has
a good appetite and loves food and drinks. He has a funny bone too; it's
just that he prefers broad and slapstick comedy to subtle humor.
Taureans are hardly cruel. At the same time, they are seldom broke.
Sooner or later, the money will come to them.
A Taurus is not stingy and his pockets, along with his heart, are
always open to friends and family. He loves grandeur and he is deeply
interested in the various forms of art. Music usually has a very special
place in his life. The ideas of a Taurus are always sensible as well as
practical. He is not the one to build castles out of air. Synonymous
with lasting love, Taurus people are not prone to wandering. They love
luxury, but detest waste and extravagance. Last but not the least, they
are dependable, strong, patient and trustworthy.
