Taurus is an Earth sign

People of Earth signs tend to be practical, loyal, responsible, down to earth and cautious. They tend to prefer to plan things down to the last detail and to avoid unnecessary risks (they don't get a thrill from risk taking like some other signs do). They typically prefer long term relationships over one night stands, and are often more concerned with practicalities than being swept off their feet, and tend to value stability and loyalty from a partner.

The air signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
The water signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

Taurus is a Negative sign

People of negative signs tend to be introvert, responsible, practical, serious and more likely to be pessimistic (when compared to people of positive signs). They typically relate better to people of other negative signs (though their soulmates are typically of positive signs).

The negative signs: Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces

Taurus is a Fixed sign

People of fixed signs are known for their determination, deep thoughts and persistence. They tend to achieve more than the other (cardinal or mutable) signs due to being so willful. On the negative side they can be stubborn, opinionated and inflexible.

The cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn
The fixed signs: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius

Taurus is ruled by Venus

Venus represents how you find and appreciate beauty in life. What qualities you are drawn to. Venus rules love, desire, romance and beauty. It's a simple and sensual attraction and desire to own. Conceptually it represents romance, attraction, harmony, friendships, beauty, art.

Taurus is associated with the 2nd house

The second house symbolizes things of value to us, and how we nurture their growth, how we become established, how we apply deliberate action. Conceptually the second house also shows how we use resources covering concepts such as stability, steady progress through sustained effort, investment and security.

Are you really a Taurus?

If you were born on the first or last day of Taurus then it's worth noting that the signs do not neatly correspond to calendar days. You may wish to check out the articles on the Aries Taurus cusp or Taurus Gemini cusp.
