First of the Earth signs, Taurus represents the richness of Spring, the fertile ground lush with texture and color. Sensual and earthy, this is the territory of the planet Venus, "mistress" of this sign.
As Spring settles in, those strongly influenced by Taurean characteristics display a certain obstinacy. The Bull unconsciously works toward the produce of future harvests.
Natives of this sign never rush into anything without taking the time to carefully think through their decisions. They are patient and naturally industrious... almost to a fault.
Perseverant and courageous, Taurean natives have the innate ability to focus their efforts. However, they tend to concentrate on material rewards.
