April 20 to May 20

Following the start of spring in the northern hemisphere and the initial burst of fiery energy of Aries, Taurus symbolises having and holding what one owns. The crops of spring are growing, and it’s a time of plenty and abundance for this Venus-ruled sign. This is a time for stillness and stability and those born under this sign are known for their placid, calm nature.

What does it mean to be a Taurus?

Like Libra, Taurus is ruled by the goddess of beauty and love. Where the Venusian rulership of Libra is expressed through relationships, with Taurus, Venus comes through in an appreciation for the finer things in life. Taureans are known as the most self-indulgent, sensual sign of the zodiac, but this may be more because they know how to slow down and savour what life offers. Symbolised by the Bull, they can also be fiercely determined – Taurus knows how to patiently, slowly build toward a goal. This is a sign that won’t stop, even if it takes years to reach their desired objective. And once they get there, they are definitely going to relish it!

What are the qualities of a Taurus?

Some of the best qualities of Taurus are their perseverance and strength. Taurus is the type of individual that can finish projects where others would give up. They don’t, however, like change. As long as they can continue enjoying the stability they’ve built for themselves, Taurus is an easy-going sign. If provoked enough, however, the Bull of the zodiac can unleash a powerful anger.

Who is a Taurus compatible with?

Taureans are often reliable, offering a solid, earthy presence that can be a great comfort for security-seeking signs like Cancer, Pisces, and Virgo. They are also compatible with Capricorn as both signs value hard work and are willing to work toward their goals and desires.

What zodiac sign should a Taurus marry?

Taurus can marry the other earth signs, Virgo and Capricorn, and enjoy a lasting relationship. They can get into their own rhythm of life and live happily ever after. Taurus and Cancer also make a fruitful pair in a long-term bond. These two can create a cosy, welcoming home and can maintain a loving, warm relationship. Both signs also can be possessive, however, so they’ll need a good deal of communication and openness to avoid jealousy issues.

Is Taurus loyal?

Taurus may be the most loyal sign of the zodiac. In love and friendship, Taurus is loyal and enduring. However, they’re not the most forgiving sign. Taureans can be stubborn so you can lose this loyal companion if you cross a Taurus’ red line.
