Personality

Taureans aren’t afraid of the hard work if that brings them closer to their destination. Being resistant to changing situations, they barely change their minds. Sometimes, they face difficulties forming relationships, but when they do, they are fully devoted.

Being a fixed sign, Taurus present themselves as loyal and true keepers. They are fun and alive like the Spring season. They don’t have an attitude, but not everyone can handle Taurus personality traits. This attribute mostly works in their favor, because they attract attention wherever they go.

Strengths

Resourceful and productive, when a Taurus sets a goal, they complete it despite changing circumstances, regardless of the fact that they hate change. They are peaceful and governed by logic, which means gossip doesn’t stand a chance to lower their high morale and self-confidence. They weigh their words carefully before striking a conversation.

They are extremely patient when learning a new skill, which may be the reason why they are slow learners. But once they acquire that skill, they won’t forget it in a lifetime. Being the creative natives that they are, they love collecting unique, antique things. They are generous and love gifting items that hold high sentimental value for them.

Weaknesses

Yes, they are patient and hardworking, but they are also extremely lazy. Being driven by their own internal compass, Bulls may find it difficult pleasing everyone at work. They are stubborn, possessive, and uncompromising, which makes them extremely vulnerable in the event of changing situations.

They don’t forget things so easily, and therefore, face difficulties mending broken relationships. Being picky and materialistic creatures that they are, sometimes, they treat people as trophies and prioritize them over other things.

Taurus Compatibility

Compatibility2

Taureans need stability and security in a relationship, and therefore, are the most compatible with water and earth signs, Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, Pisces, and Scorpio. They are least compatible with Leo, Sagittarius, Gemini, Aries, and Aquarius.

Taurus Health

Taureans are born with strong stamina and natural resilience, but since the bull doesn’t like to move around much, Taureans may be prone to weight gain, which may further give rise to diseases like diabetes and thyroid.

Those born to this sign must keep their bodies warm to improve blood circulation, digestion, and overall functioning of the body. They are big-time foodies, and therefore must incorporate some form of exercise into their daily routine.

Esoteric Taurus

The Three Decans of Taurus

According to traditional astrology, each zodiac sign forms a 30-degree piece of the 360-degree band of constellations. The thirty degrees of each sign are further divided into three decans of ten degrees each. Each decan contains a slot of 10 days, and every decan is governed by different planets and different characteristics are attached to it.

First Decan of Taurus: Mercury

Born from April 21 to April 30 (Degrees 30 through 39)

Mercury is the ruler of the first decan of Taurus, which makes the people born in this range passionate, attractive, and creative. They are pleasure-seeking individuals who are governed by strong will and determination. Due to the presence of Mercury, natives born in this range may easily feel overwhelmed and nervous.

Second Decan of Taurus: Moon

Born from April 31 to May 11 (Degrees 40 through 49)

Moon is the ruler of the second decan of Taurus, which makes the people born in this range emotional, artistic, sentimental, and down to earth. This amalgamation of Venus and moon is the reason why natives born in this range are lucky and extremely giving.

Third Decan of Taurus: Saturn

Born from May 12 to May 21 (Degrees 50 through 59)

Saturn is the ruler of the third decan of Taurus, which makes the people born in this range stubborn, rigid, and resistant to change. This placement of Saturn amplifies the qualities of Bull in the Taureans, serving to their advantage as well as disadvantage. These natives are typically stern, and disciplined, making them ideal leaders in corporate spaces.
