Taurus are known for being practical, sensual and reliable. In many ways the perfect combination for those looking for a partner. They tend to enjoy the home, be good with money and be highly protective of their loved ones (making them excellent parents too!) Generally easy going and respectful people they can be very stubborn and surprisingly volatile if provoked (an angry Taurus is never a good thing!) Generally they are introverted and prefer a small circle of close friends to large social gatherings. They typically respect tradition and prefer routines, structure and planning to chaos and last minute surprises.
Down to earth
Pessimistic (tend to dwell on the past)
Sensible with money (can be seen as bad some times)
Very protective of loved ones
It's worth noting that most good Taurus traits and characteristics have an equal and opposite bad trait or characteristic. For example, someone who is highly analytical could be described as either intelligent (good) or unemotional (bad). Someone who is spontaneous (good) is also impulsive (bad).
Often hide their feelings
Bad temper if provoked (rarely do well with A-type personalities)
Uncreative / unimaginative
Lazy (typically only when ordered around)
Tendency to procrastinate
Possessions (especially those of unusual beauty or quality)
Planning things in advance
Chaos or unpredictability
One of the fascinating things about astrology is the patterns which exist. Taurus personality traits certainly aren't random. They come from a combination of the signs ruling planet, element, polarity, house and quality. All of these are also used (consistently) elsewhere within astrology and come together to form the unique package which is the Taurus personality.
No. The above traits exist if someone has a Taurus sun sign. However every individual also has other planet placements (Moon, Mars, Venus etc) which modify this behavior. In some cases one or more of the basic personality traits listed above will be modified or even replaced. Only by examining all the planet placements for an individual can we get a complete picture of their unique personality. A skilled astrologer can often calculate these backwards from the ways that the basic sun sign behavior is being modified.
As children we are subjected to many experiences and influences. These can lead to a determined effort to modify our personality and behavior. The traits still exist, but they can be over ridden by free thought. It's fairly common for negative traits to gradually diminish as a person gets older, wiser and more socially adept.
