The second sign of the Zodiac, Taurus, enjoys the good life - both physical pleasure and material goods. But like the bull they can be somewhat bull-headed and stubborn. They're the most practical of the signs, plodding along until they reach their goal, but once that goal is reached they're happy to indulge themselves in material goods. But if you worked as hard as most bulls do, you'd deserve the rewards as well. They're patient and dependable and tend to be somewhat conservative.
Taurus is ruled by Venus and governed by the affections. People born under this sign will go out of their way to avoid ill feelings. They are modest and do not seek popularity. They can be very devoted, either to another person or to an ideal. Their love is deep, lasting and undemanding. Humble by nature, they seldom ask for anything for themselves. They are both sensitive and keen witted. They are not afraid of hard work or the unpleasant aspects of life. Emotionally truthful, they make good-natured, reliable and faithful friends, although they are inclined to brood and need encouragement. Their gift for study makes them scholars and artists and they excel at work that requires patience.
Your best matches, whether as friends, lovers or partners, are those born under the sign of Capricorn and Virgo, and to a lesser degree Pisces and Cancer.
Famous Taurus include: Queen Elizabeth II, William Shakespeare, Robert Browning, Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, Sigmund Freud and Audrey Hepburn.
