Taurus is an Earth sign, which accounts for their grounded nature. Practical and realistic, Taurus are excellent employees. Loyal, committed and long-term thinkers, Taurus will see their projects through to completion, no matter what or how long it takes.
Conservative in their approach to life, Taureans are often happiest at home. They are often avid gardeners and excellent cooks. Ruled by Venus, Taurus loves to be surrounded by beauty, and their homes are often a reflection of their good taste and need for comfort.
At their best, Taurus is loyal, dependable and bring a practical voice of reason to heated situations. At their worst, Taurus can be stubborn, unmoving and overprotective.
Spotting a Taurus
How to spot the Taurus woman:
The Taurus woman is the original earth mother, and this is often reflected in her personal style. While her style leans more towards comfort, if there’s a sign that steers clear of fast fashion, it’s a Taurus. She has expensive taste! As a general rule, Taurus women love quality, timeless pieces and stick with their favourites.
How to spot the Taurus man:
Truthfully, you may not even notice him! The Taurus man can be incredibly reserved and self-conscious around people he doesn’t know. Not into anything flashy or over the top, he has a low-key, classic style. Not one for spontaneous adventures, you’ll find him cozied up at home or at one of a handful of places where he feels comfortable.
