The existence in which Taurus are most likely to flourish is a peaceful life, where they can feel safe. This sign likes comfort and is afraid of going without. If they feel secure, they are the happiest beings on the planet. Their aim is to be surrounded by loved-ones, their ‘tribe', and live in a warm, stable environment. On the other hand, if this is not the case, those born under this sign can very quickly feel anxious. They are naturally fragile beings. Taurus are inclined to be somewhat lacking in initiative by nature.
They like to chew things over and yes, it is not an unusual sight to see Taurus ruminating over old issues that have been occupying their mind. They start off by looking for security and stability and will show great perseverance in achieving what they want. They can keep calm for some time and keep quiet about vexations, but watch out when their anger mounts up. It can quickly get out of control.
Unlike Arieses, Taurus bear grudges and never forget. They will take a long time to get angry, but also take a long time to forgive and trust people and so on. This is how it is with those born under the sign of Taurus. They are consistent, patient, loyal in their relationships, but they need time.
Taurus are also sensual beings, who love physical contact with the person they desire. They are “physical” beings, to whom contact is as important as words. They love pleasure and the delights of the flesh, and when they are in love, they are tender and gentle. This natural sensuality makes them sensitive to the beauty of nature. They like walking and love the forests and flowers, their perfumes.
Similarly they will appreciate the fine things of life: art, music, sculpture, photography… Being very focused on culinary pleasures, this is a sign that loves entertaining guests in the home, the home being one of their main concerns. Taurus are hungry for sensation and were born to appreciate the pleasures of the senses.
Strengths of Taurus
Even though Taurus seek security, they are not self-centred individuals and give a lot to those they love. They are reliable, generous and loyal! Human relationships are their life-blood. They like giving to others and making an effort to provide them with anything that is missing from their lives.
