All about Taurus
The second of the twelve signs of the Zodiac, Taurus is symbolized by the bull. One of the most reliable Zodiac signs, a Taurus understands the value of hard work and achieving their goals. They are grounded and realistic – content to work on the same project for multiple years as long as they see progress. They are known for being extremely stable and pragmatic.
In relationships and with their friends, a Taurus is deeply loyal and prefers simplicity – not drama. Governed by Venus, they are very sensual as you get to know them more and like to be pampered with comfort and luxury.
Day to day, a Taurus loves their consistent routines and doesn’t like surprises or sudden changes. At times though, you may have to step back and evaluate your routines to make sure your consistency doesn’t turn into a rut.

Taurus: The Bull
Symbolized by the bull, a Taurus has two dominant moods. They spend most of their time persistently working as symbolized by the old adage “slow and steady wins the race”.

Most of the time though, a Taurus is consistent and understanding of the value of hard work. To others, they may appear to be stubborn but they know their goals and they know the path to achieving them.
