Characteristics Of Taurus

Taurus is the calm in the center of a storm. They can make life nearly conflict free with their ability to resolve issues. Without diluting the facts, they will massage them until they are harmonious and in balance. Do they go too far with little regard for their own personal feelings? If they are a Taurus, they just might do that.

With the love of a secure, safe place to be and a willingness to do whatever it takes to get it, Taurus can become a “yes” person. When one agrees with almost anything, just to avoid conflict, something is eventually going to explode. When it does, beware! Once the damage is done, there is no taking it back.

Energies: Harmony energy expressed as comfort, safety and balance.

This is a very strong energy that seeks to find comfort, safety and balance in the resolution of conflict. That is its entire purpose. Harmony does not just happen, it takes patience and a loving heart to see through the differences and come to a resolve that results in a safe environment.

Virtues: Patient, security loving, persistent and placid


  • Patient


Nothing seems to press your buttons. No flying off the handle for you. You are seen as the kindred heart and calming influence by all.


  • Security loving


Your environment must be safe and secure without the feeling of danger lurking around the corner. Others in your life sense this and are drawn to protect you from harm.


  • Persistent


You are like a train going down hill, without brakes to slow you down. You are so task orientated that there is nothing that can stop you, once you have a destination in mind.


  • Placid


You don’t show your emotions often, but when you do, it is a pleasure to behold. Your mild-manner conceals your inner most emotions.

Vices: Jealous, possessive, self-indulgent and blaming

Your negative characteristics are really just your positive qualities that are not yet balanced. That just means your vices are still in progress and haven’t yet matured into the virtues they will become.

You want to have all the possessions that others have as your own and often express a jealous desire for what you cannot have.


  • Possessive


What you have is yours alone. Sharing is a foreign trait to you.


  • Self-indulgent


You lack self-control in pursuing your own pleasure and satisfaction.


  • Blaming


You tend to blame others for your failures.
