Rising Sign: Also called Ascendant or the First House Cusp: Patient, trustworthy, stable, cautious and down-to-earth.
Personality Traits of Taurus: Our birthday greetings to all our Taurus readers – one of the most stable, dependable and trustworthy signs of the Zodiac! Taureans are better at keeping the ball rolling rather than starting new projects, and do not mind routine work (unless they have Aries or Gemini planets).
They are very patient when it comes to people’s problems and give practical advice, especially in financial matters. However, they are not very flexible in their thinking and dislike changes. They are usually quite stubborn but also very predictable. Real estate and land are the best investments for Taurus. They have a lot of tenacity and keep on doing things long enough to achieve something in a tangible way.
Taurus is an Earth sign and is “ruled” by Venus, which makes them practical and “down-to-earth”. They like to possess objects of beauty rather than just admiring them. This reflects in their love of collecting antiques, crystal etc. In speech, people with Mercury in Taurus are very understanding, consistent and thorough. They also enjoy history and tradition. However, they can also miss on opportunities because of too much caution.
If Venus was in Taurus, then they are very loyal and romantic in love in a rather traditional way. The sign of Taurus is compatible with other Earth and Water signs i.e. Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn and Pisces.
