Zodiac Sign: Taurus
Discover what it means to have the sun sign Taurus.
Thoughtful and gracious, you are the picture of good etiquette. As the second sign of the zodiac, you are here to teach people how to create a secure foundation with their lives. Blessed with the planning skills of a high-powered project manager, you know just what it takes to put ideas into action — and how to get the job done right. At times you can get overly mired in perfecting the details, which can slow your pace. Learning where to relax your standards (at least a pinch) is an important lesson. You rule the throat, which may lend itself to a talent for singing or oratory skills. When you speak, people listen! Family means the world to you. From weddings to religious holidays to birthday parties, you love a traditional celebration with all the trimmings. Ruled by sensuous Venus, you have an artist's eye and appetite. Bring on the gourmet food, high-thread-count sheets and high-end beauty products. You'll splurge where you see fit, but you're also an excellent money manager. Resourceful and hardworking, you know how to provide for yourself and the ones you love. Your stick-to-itiveness can morph into stubbornness. Knowing when to let go can be an Achilles heel, since you tend to hang on to jobs and relationships well past the expiration date. The right mate for you is a solid provider who shares your strong family values.
