Profile of a Taurus
The Taurus is an independent person, not a leader, nor a follower, they set their own pace and work with an impressive perseverance. Taurus make excellent friends, however they don’t have too many as they prefer just keeping those closest to their hearts, in their life. They relish the opportunity to play host/hostess and throw lavish parties as any opportunity, taking the time to spoil those they are closest with.
In business it will always be the Taurus that is last to give up, when everyone packs up and heads off, the Taurus is still there powering through. They have a real head for figures and can do really well for themselves working in this area.
With this handle on numbers, Taurus are not that careful with their own money, they surround them selves with nice positions and can some times lose track of their spending. This is a main reason that Taurus don’t like to take the lead, if they are responsible for budgets in their own businesses then there is a good chance they will over spend, removing their security and stability, which makes a Taurus anxious indeed.
Be careful not to offend the Taurus as they are very sensitive and will often take remarks in the most negative way. They are also not too fond of change, preferring the security of routine. Spontaneity makes them nervous and they aren’t ones to go off dating into the new or unknown.
Preferring to keep emotions bottled up, the Taurus rarely let people know hoe they are really feeling, but you will definitely know when you’ve offended them in some way by the way they close off to you.
A Taurus will live in a house that is beautifully decorated, full of nice possessions that are not flashy or over the top. They much prefer comfort to anything that’s too gaudy! Because of this taste for fine things, Taurus can sometimes come across as self-indulgent, however they are not snobby or pretentious, they just appreciate the finer things in life.
