Why I Love Taurus

By Alyssa Sharpe

In my experience, Taurus is the most under appreciated sign, and I would like to change that today, by writing all of the reasons why I love you.

Taurus, you are ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, so it should be no surprise that this beauty is passed to your features, creating a softness and a charming, attractive quality that cannot be duplicated. You have an earthy sexinessthat people are usually never prepared for, and you seem to relish in that fact. You love catching people off guard.

Because of your Venusian nature, you are a lover of harmony, and will shut out conflict whenever you can. But you are not a pushover. You are strong and brave like the Bull that is assigned to you, and will not cower at a fight or be manipulated to surrender. This of course, creates that stubbornness your so famous for—the part of you that we all covet.

Taurus is the second sign in the Zodiac, which rules over the comforts we value in life. Whether that is material possessions or maintaining a good self esteem, no Taurus will deny the comfortability of a warm blanket, soft bed, or strong arms. You will have nothing, unless it’s of quality.

Taurus is very selective. You enjoy a small group of people, and don’t need a million acquaintances to shower love on you. You take pride in the fact that you have had your few close friends for years, as it always has been quality over quantity to you. The things you build, will last a lifetime.

I can call a Taurus at anytime, and we will pick up where we left off, because you never forget. Because you love very deeply and care to truly know those you love.

You are honest. You will not hurt those you love, through white lies. This kind of honesty causes pain to some, but there are more people who love your straightforward approach to communication, than not—even if you fear that you have lost someone because of it. Let those who are not as loyal and honest as you, leave forever.

You are a sign that thinks first of yourself and then of everyone else. And because of this strength, you don’t care about what other’s think of you. And when you meet someone that you do love, you give them your all, don’t change your mind, and work hard to keep them.

You are not wishy washy. You stick to your guns, and are very strong-willed. You are veryintrospective—willing to look inside yourself, to understand what you did wrong if need be. However, you are calculating enough to never have to apologize. That’s the value of moving slowly and observing everything before you act: you rarely leave a mess behind you.

Taurus, my favorite thing about you, is that when you love, you love forever, and you never lose yourself in the process.

The Taurus Child

By Mary Jo Montevirgen

Taurus is ruled by Venus, which bestows Taureans with a love of all things pleasurable to the five senses. It is important to understand this about the Taurus child from birth. The Taurus baby loves to be held and touched often. Giving her lots of blankets and stuffed animals will aid you in fulfilling her need for physical contact. Because Venus also imparts harmony, Taurus baby keeps a warm, harmonious and pleasant demeanor at most times, even when around strangers. As a child, she generally has a warm exterior, even if she has many thoughts and feelings boiling inside. As a child, you won’t see her act very reckless or aggressive. However, she can go through spells like such if she has pent up emotions or thoughts and feels like she isn’t allowed to express them. If Taurus child cannot express herself at home, she will find ways to overcompensate for this. If she his raised in a respectful and loving home, she will project these qualities in her interactions outside her home.

Taurus child likes to maintain an environment with balance and harmony, so when it comes to most things, she likes to go with the crowd. However, when she feels strongly about something, she takes on traits of the bull – unmoving and nearly impossible to get her to change her position. She is often recognized for her logical thinking and good judgment, so she can have very strong opinions about what is right and wrong. Because of this, Taurus child can seem completely at peace until she witnesses or experiences something that goes against her beliefs. Some of the issues she will have may seem trivial to you. In that case, try to save the arguments and power struggles for larger matters. Just like all children, you will have to generate creative parenting tactics to raise Taurus child, especially when it comes to dealing with her obstinacy.

When exerting herself, Taurus child shines when she is around what is familiar to her. This could either be at a familiar place or with familiar people. Being an Earth sign, she responds best to changes when they are made slowly and seamlessly. She also responds well to appreciation, so she will feel encouraged to transition smoothly when you show her that you appreciate her flexibility. However, if Taurus child is about to experience change with something she loves, she will need time to process it so she can think about how to incorporate these changes into her life.

The Taurus child has a healthy and strong build. She loves food, and she will stick to eating what she gets used to! That being said, make sure to teach her how to balance her diet, and that junk food is a rare indulgence. She tends to absorb tension in her neck and shoulders, and physical and creative outlets are best for her to release that. Massages will also serve as especially helpful to her. When tension is built up to the point of anger, it occurs when she notices there is a trend in which she doesn’t get her way. The Taurus child is also susceptible to the affects of sound and color, and can change her mood inexplicably. This does not happen often, though.

Taurus child needs a lot of time to complete tasks. Her mind may work at any pace, but she needs time to plan things out. When she starts something, she is in it for the long haul and she does not give up easily. She operates best when in a comfortable environment, as opposed to a stressful one. Because of her inherent love of comfort, Taurus child can seem physically lazy. This is does not have to stay that way, though. She can be taught to work at a faster pace, for example, if you show her the fastest and most practical way to complete tasks. She likes feeling useful among her family, so you can show her how to multitask chores.

Taurus child does not respond well to authoritative demands or requests without reasons. She cannot be ordered and expected to be obedient – it only makes her more obstinate. Taurus child also cannot be punished by giving her a time out, as she has no issue enjoying her creative mind in silence. Taurus child thinks she knows what she likes, but sometimes she needs to be urged out of her comfort zone to see the possibilities in life. In order to get her to do things she is unsure of, she needs to be convinced with reason. She may have a tendency to hoard her belongings, so it would be in her best interest to learn how to throw things out when she no longer uses them. However, there are certain belongings she does not tire of, so let her choose a few items that she can keep until ready to dispose of. On the other hand, when Taurus child is pushed to do too much that she does not want to, she can lash out when she becomes an adult.

Taurus has an affinity for music and the arts. Her mind is creative, and her creativity needs an outlet. Because she may not instinctively know where to apply her creativity, she may need a little guidance. She may respond well to music, singing or instrumental lessons. However, don’t expect her to want to perform. She won’t feel comfortable performing under a spotlight – at least not the first few times she does it. You may also find that she is a natural when it comes to drawing or painting. When you do find her creative passion, you can use this knowledge to reward her with gifts that will help her further explore her creativity when she has done something worth appreciating. She will embrace these gifts more than another child would embrace his reward of candy or junk food.
