Venus, the ruling planet of Taurus, as well as of Gemini, influences both sign differently. With Taurus, Venus is less sophisticated, easily taking off spiritual and intellectual covers and coming down on Earth. A typical Taurean can be a friendly, tender and impulsive kind of a person, although he may not show it. The bull is a very precise symbol of this sign. The Taurean-born people use power and strength to get what they want. They are often called "the salt of the Earth", since there is no sweetness in them: they know exactly what they want and work hard to get it.
Taurean-born men can often be kind and gentle, giving way to weak features of their character. But you should understand, this does not mean they lack temperament and therefore be careful not to rage the bull. It is hard to make them lose their temper and still harder to cause antagonism inside of them, but once you make them mad, they become real "bulls in the china shop" and are ready to destroy everything they see.
However, they value true beauty. Most Taurean-born people are attracted to arts and music, and most of all - to the beauty of a human body. They are ardent lovers. Astrologers often say that Scorpio - the opposite of Taurus - is a wild partner. A Taurean-born is considered to be much wilder than a Scorpio-born during the intercourse. The basic difference is that intellect often makes those born under the sign of Scorpio forget about sex in order to achieve success in other spheres of life. As for those born under the sign of Taurus, they are so excessively strong that sex is a kind of relaxation for them.
Taurus rules the Second House of Horoscope, which is called House of Money. The Taurean-born people are extremely materialistic and often take on projects than allow them to earn a lot, however, they are not like the ambitious Capricorns. They live for today.
Taureans are slaves to comfort. At home they have all technical innovations to make life easier for themselves and for people they love. The Taureans know the price of everything, but, which is more important, they can estimate the coefficient of pleasure that this particular item of luxury may give.
Venus - the planet of Taurus - is often called less successful, but merely in comparison with the more successful Jupiter. Still, Venus is a good friend of Taureans giving them happiness and good luck and making them very attractive for friends and lovers.
Since Taurus not a highly intellectual sign, under the influence of Venus the Taureans develop a tendency towards self-satisfaction, in other words, towards laziness. They often say:"I know I could reach whatever I want if I really cared. Why try hard then?" That's true, Taureans can really achieve whatever they want but mostly it is about enjoying the thought rather than doing anything. This quality also makes them rather reserved. They are not used to making compliments to their loves or wives (husbands). Most of them substitute such poetical words (their feeling really are poetical but they are too shy to talk about them) with expensive presents. Their lovers are grateful for such signs of affection, however, the Taureans should try to reveal their feelings in a more direct way.
The Taureans are very strong and energetic people but they rarely agree to waste their energy on unreasonable things. On the whole, every effort they make with a positive aim in mind must be rewarded, otherwise they simply get upset and lose any interest in the affair. Nothing in the world can stop them from completing what they have started. Stubbornness is a serious flaw that threatens Taurus's career.
They find it hard to understand other people. Still, in general, it is a positive sign. A Taurean-born person is friendly but sometimes can be a bit boring because of a certain reticence and reserve. Taurus rules the neck and throat. Most Taurean-born people prefer singing or listening to somebody else singing than talking. A lot of actors, TV and radio directors (born under the sign of Taurus) are very successful, because in their profession one needs to have a strong and pleasant voice.
Taureans feel a tense sexual excitement when speaking in front of an audience for nerve ends of the throat are connected with the ear. That is why they often say that they have to avoid making love before speaking in public so that the vocal chords were free from sexual tension.
We can state that the personality of a Taurean develops on a stable, consistent level. But remember: never try to push the bull off its path.
