Patient, Warmhearted, Reliable, Persistent
The most important things to a Taurus are peaceful surroundings and a happy family. They live for the people they love. They make true friends. They will go to great lengths to help someone in need, but only if they think it is really necessary. They have been called penny-pinchers and stingy, but that is not really the case. It is their need for security that causes them to stretch every cent as far as they can to protect themselves from being needy.
While some may see them as selfish, and it’s fair to say they will protect their own interests first, they also have the best interest of those around them at heart as well.
Never impulsive, they will think carefully before acting. Sometimes they risk the danger of procrastination as they lose their impulse to act for all their thinking. They are valuable and insightful advisors who will carefully map out a strategy and wait for the right moment to implement their plans. They are good problem solvers, usually able to come up with a practical solution to a problem.
While they require time and leisure to allow their thoughts to find the proper form, once they decide on a course of action, they will persevere until the goal is reached. They are stubborn and while they like to be on a team, they generally will not sit in a follower role for long, as their dominant urges will eventually come into play.
They do not like to be in the limelight. While they have many interests in all physical matters they don’t crave activity. They easily enjoy being an observer too. They are naturally skilled at working with their hands.
