Venus often influences her children in a way that makes them passive, and once they assume this position, they become rather smart and quick using non-sexual moves to get what they want. The Taureans like to be admired and indulged, in this way they get expensive presents.
Those born under a sign of Earth are capable of using their charm in a practical way. They think that any good thing in the world is worth working for. Since they believe in the fair play, they are no good as businessmen and should therefore stay away from anything dealing with economics where one needs to be pushy and a bit tricky. They just find themselves unable to survive in this cutthroat competition. In general, non-sexual moves of the Taurenas work better in love life and not in business or social affairs.
