Taurus Characteristics and Personality Traits
Taurus Zodiac Sign – ruled by Venus.
Your Sun Zodiac sign may not best describe your personality features, your characteristics and general qualities that you bring to life. For many people, their Ascendant or its planetary ruler is the more obvious characteristic, or sometimes the Moon sign.
The function of Taurus, more than any other sign, is to witness to the value of the senses in human life. We are material beings with physical bodies which have needs and desires, and Taurus says, in effect, these needs are valid, the body’s desires are to be valued and appreciated for their own sake. Good food, good wine, good sex, a beautifully furnished home and tastefully chosen clothing are all to be enjoyed, and can make Taureans feel good about themselves, and so make them more lively and satisfying contributors to human life as a whole.
After the exuberance, imagination and activity of the first sign of the zodiac, Aries, Taurus may seem to some rather slow and inert by comparison. However, the spark that Aries provides would never take effect, always grounded in the physical world, unless there were people who could work out the practical implications and bring them to fruition.
