Those with the Sun in Taurus can be the most down-to-Earth of the signs, so naturally they’re the ones reveling in earthly pleasures. Their sensuality is legendary, whether they’re cooking up a sumptuous feast in the kitchen or turning on the tantalizingly slow charm in the bedroom.
Sun in Taurus seems more firmly rooted in the physical world than the other signs, and so, can be as immovable as a mountain. It’s hard to get a Taurus to rush into anything, which can be frustrating to everyone else. But once a decision has been made, it’s usually a sound one. And that same stubborn deliberateness keeps Taurus fixed on a goal, long after others have given up.
Taurus people are the “builders” of the Zodiac, and to use that analogy, they want to see all the blueprints of a project before going forward. But on their watch, you can guarantee that no buildings – or relationships -- will fall down due to flimsy construction.
Big motivations for Taurus are a desire for material and emotional security. This sets them on a path to find a partner or career for the long haul. They’ll stay put where they are and carefully cultivate a stable, deeply rooted life. On the down side, this can cause them to linger in a job or with a mate that they’ve outgrown.
Sun in Taurus is easy going until truly mad, at which time you’ll see the raging Bull in action. Lurking within every serene Taurus is the potential for a seething rage that re-establishes a sense of order by force. Respect them and allow them to take their sweet time doing things, and all will be well.
