Taurus, which is the second sign in 12 zodiac signs, is ruled by Venus, the love planet. Represented by the Bull, people born under this sign (April 20 – May 20) are resilient.
Being the child of Earth, they carry fixated quality within them. Talk about unshakable, that is almost the perfect word to describe them. They are creatures of habits and probably the one set of people averse to change.
Maybe because the earth is so physical, these people are fascinated with physical objects like nature. They are also materialistic. When they think of living life, their mind reels with thoughts of luxury.
A Taurus love life reflects their “snail-paced”; taking things slow and steady. Their love for perfection makes them take infinity of years to scrutinize their love interest before picking the supposedly perfect option.
At work, they are very efficient when a thorough task needs to be performed. They leave nothing untouched while carrying out the project to a satisfactory level of perfection. However, the focus prevents them from multitasking.

This fixated nature makes it difficult for them to adapt to change. Oh, how they hate to be pulled out of their comfort zone. This might make them sound like lazy individuals but you’d be surprised to see how dedicated they are to tasks set before them.
If there is anyone who knows how best to work and play, it’s the Taurus. They are ardent lovers of pleasure. Anything that will give that feeling of satisfaction is welcomed. However, they gravitate towards extravagance.

Taurus: Negative Personality Traits
Stuck up on their feeling of “I know best” and “I can do it my way”, they are some stubborn set to deal with. Even when criticized, they don’t budge. These people are most of the time dogmatic and close-minded. Anything change is antagonistic especially when it involves risk-taking. Watch how they sit hard like rocks in their opinion.
They can also wind up lazy when they get too comfy living the life of vacancy. They glory in the time spent doing nothing. As perfectionists, they can find themselves wasting time trying to make things perfect. If they are not careful, they would lose important people in search of the perfect ones.
Materialism is their vice. Their love for pleasure and material things can make them so sucked up by their desires that they become greedy and even apathetic to the needs of others.
Their routine minds leave them unadventurous. Afraid of the uncertainties of life, they cling to security rather than explore wilder options. Often, they bore friends with their predictability. It’s like they have nothing new to offer.

Being strictly organized people, they always make plans and love to share their goals with their partners. This intensifies the bond. Sharing dreams is like being in the same story. A love story!! Isn’t that just beautiful?
Taurus natives do not have buttered words that will charm their partners. They are not so good at expressing their feelings through words. However, they do better at acting out the words “I love you”. You can perceive it in every action they take.

Taurus and Health
They are notable for their great physique and strong stamina from birth (you cannot easily topple over a bull, can you?) However, their health begins to deteriorate as they grow older.
Funnily, they often distrust the doctors and stubbornly refuse to follow health instructions. You will most often catch them eating unhealthy food. The Taurus native lives to eat, and who knows what is on that luxury food list?
They are vulnerable to colds, larynx issues, sore throats, and thyroid problems.
To live a healthy lifestyle, they need to avoid unhealthy food as well as binge eating. Exercise should be a necessary part of their lives and moderation should be taken when picking diets.
It is also important that they learn to be moderate and not overwork themselves trying to make sure everything is perfect. Besides, it can leave them feeling unfulfilled, especially when they are unable to get the desired result. They need to learn that perfection can sometimes be unrealistic.
