What Are the Positive and Negative Traits of Taurus?
General characteristic of the sign
The main forming Taurus traits belong to the typical manifestations of the Earth element. It is a female sign that is under the influence of Venus. Taurus is usually pictured by the corresponding animal that is firmly standing on the ground. This ox seems to be coming out of the earth. Therefore, there is an intimate connection between them. The Earth gives the Taurus its strength. On the one hand, it helps the Taurus to have both feet on the ground, on the other hand, the Earth attracts the Taurus and doesn’t allow him or her to quarrel with their nature.
Best professions for Taurus
People born under the sign of Taurus often are great economists, executive managers, trade workers. According to the statistics, this sign has given the biggest number of all Ministers of Agriculture, a lot of bankers, financiers, and even politicians. This results from the fact that they exercise good judgment in all spheres. They are very earthy, practical, even pragmatic people. Speaking about the negative qualities of Taurus, which Earth gives them, we should mention, first of all, conservatism and pursuit of stability. But, on the other hand, conservatism is necessary and useful in any serious business. Therefore, if a Taurus shows healthy conservatism, then it adds to the success of the business in which he is engaged. The same conservatism helps the Taurus people to become good lawyers. Their aspiration to follow the earlier established order helps them to achieve great success both in society and in all other spheres.
We should emphasize one important peculiarity: Tauruses work effectively when they are on solid ground, that is when they have a life platform of any kind (a healthy family, high social status, significant savings, inheritance; as well as stocks of intellectual resources or energy).
Moneymaking of Taurus
People born under the sign of Taurus pile up money to feel safe. It is a necessary condition of their life. Taurus’s moneymaking is neither a bad trait nor a good one; it is simply natural. We give it either a good or a bad mark when we begin to analyze how the Taurus uses this money. If they use what they have saved up for good causes, it is good. If the Taurus is a grabber, it can’t be worse that that.
The Taurus as a child will always collect something: candy wrappers, pennies, books, or stamps. Parents have to be very attentive to these fancies of their children so that they didn’t evolve into some unpleasant qualities. Sometimes the constant desire of the Taurus to be on solid ground runs to the absurd, then he can’t use any abstract or philosophical concepts because he needs a precisely formulated task. By the way, people born under the sign of Taurus struggle to study, they have to put a lot of effort into acquiring new knowledge, but as soon as the information is in the head, it will stay there for a long time. Besides, they need material incentives in all activities including studies.
Moneymaking is rather a good trait when steered in the right direction. The superior quality of the Taurus representing the Earth element is the aspiration to consistency and accumulation of information. Tauruses are very patient, to obtain what they want they can work for a long time until they execute their plan. Persistence, i.e. ability to achieve the objective by all means is an excellent personal quality when it is connected with constructive affairs. The most prominent Tauruses are ready for it. Diligence, persistence in the achievement of the purpose is usually characteristical for all Tauruses. Another trait is the fecundity of their genius. The most striking examples are Karl Marx and Honoré de Balzac.
Hypersensibility of Taurus
Another unusual quality of the Taurus is hypersensibility. Their sensitivity can reach the level of a medium’s talent, using it they can perceive the objects literally as a medium, that is at the astral level. Among Tauruses, there are a lot of predictors, mediums, healers who can accumulate in themselves natural energy. If to speak about the lowest manifestation of the Taurus, then this is a grabber, a greedy person.
The zodiac sign often leaves an impression on the physical appearance: as a rule, Taurus men are stout and imposing, while Taurus women are most beautiful: they have lovely big eyes, that are a bit bulgy and liquid, their eyelashes curve skyward, they have a snub nose and irresistible dimples on the cheeks.
Temperament and character of Taurus
The fact that they are under doubled influence of Venus and the Moon adds to sensitivity and sentimentality and explains their good taste. People born under the sign of Taurus love a quiet style of dress. However, their clothes are always well-tailored, most preferably it is made of luxurious silks or wool. They don’t like necklaces, rigid collars or ties, preferring perfumes with a gentle smell. They often change clothes, but always choose the same style if they think that it suits them.
Usually, Tauruses are peaceful and patient. The need for harmony forces them to put up with a lot of unpleasant things, but their patience may grow thin one day, and you are lucky if you never get to see it. Tauruses don’t like disputes, especially when people turn on caps lock voice, and cannot stand discord in their life.
Tauruses trust their senses and internal beliefs that are based more on feelings than on logical conclusions. They are careful observers that prefer to double check before they draw any conclusions.
Tauruses value objectivity, they don’t like to reflect, they are less religious, than other zodiac signs and possess excellent memory. Usually they keep their word. They can annoy themselves and others by their indecision and unwillingness to deal with a situation that is subject to continuous change. They should overcome the opinion that they are the centre of the universe. Besides, they should learn to be loyal.
Tauruses are reserved, as far as it concerns their personal affairs even if they are talkative. They are generous, but at the same time greedy. It is necessary to learn how to balance different options: “to give” and “to take.” Tauruses are sensible and pragmatic. Tauruses feel more sharply than other zodiac signs.
