Taurus: The Practical Bull (April 21 – May 21)

Bulls are very practical, consistent, stubborn and habitual. They have a possessive nature, can be indulgent, extremely devoted, and enjoy earthy pleasures. They can be laid back only after their control issues are in check and are often dogmatic by nature.

Taurus are resourceful, thorough and dependable in nature. They know how to be responsible and stable when it is important (to them) yet they have a placid and comfortable mode that is sometimes not the best direction for them. Considered solid, earthy, and strong, they are money-oriented, practical, productive, cautious, yet in their younger years they may be even musical and artistic.
