They find it easy to make money and stay on same projects for years, or until they are completed. What we often see as stubbornness can be interpreted as commitment, and their ability to complete tasks whatever it takes is uncanny. This makes them excellent employees, great long-term friends and partners, always being there for people they love. Earthly note makes them overprotective, conservative, or materialistic at times, with views of the world founded on their love of money and wealth.

Taurus – the Wandering Bull Being the one who betrayed their best friend, goddess Hera herself, this is an unfortunate being that has to wander the Earth in order to find freedom. As if something was always poking them behind their back, reminding them of happiness that once was, stinging and pushing forwards, they close up in their own worlds, lonely and separated from their core. To find love, a Taurus has to travel the world, change perspective or make a shift in their entire belief system and their system of values.
TAURUS LOVE AND SEX
One always has to be prepared to have patience for a Taurus lover. They are extremely sensual, touch, smell and all pleasurable senses being extremely important to them, but they also need time to create a safe environment and relax in their sexual encounters. When they create enough intimacy with a loved one, they become a bit gooey, sometimes even needy, and have to keep their emotions in check, holding on to practical reasoning, while embracing change and initiative of their partner at all times.
For long-term relationships they often choose people from the same social environment that are able to respond to their intellectual needs, but also the expectations of their family and close friends. Holding on to traditional values and the practical side to life, this is a sign that rarely chooses a partner who won’t fulfill basic expectations of their upbringing, often showing and receiving attention through gifts and material things. If they stick to the moral code too stiffly and refuse all taboos and adventurous approaches, they could end up swimming in frustration and anger issues they don’t know how to resolve, often manifesting through the person standing in front of them. Taurus compatibility with other signs can be complicated.
This is a sign of physical pleasure, hedonism and the flow of emotion that isn’t reserved for just anyone.
TAURUS FRIENDS AND FAMILY

HOW TO ATTRACT THE TAURUS MAN
If you are in search for a strong, loyal and generous man, Taurus is the person you are looking for. He is trustworthy, patient and tender when in love, always in search for a returned emotion. He will not pick on subtle hinds and suggestive looks from those who flirt with him, being a bit slow on the uptake as if waiting for someone to ask them out. He dislikes artificiality of any kind, and values conversations filled with genuine statements, especially when it comes to compliments and love declarations.
A Taurus man needs time to build trust and anyone on a chase for his heart needs to take the time earning it. As a person of very few words, he will seem impossible to penetrate at times, as if nothing can touch him. An invitation for a delicious home-cooked mean is always a safe bet when dating this man, as well as choosing a place that is comfortable and cozy, rather than popular or modern. Turned to nature and common thinking, he will see sex as something that comes when the time is right, rarely puts any pressure on his partner and feels like it is something to be enjoyed, not so much something to crave for. A part of his fixed, static character is the potential inability to forgive betrayal, and he needs to feel truly safe to settle down with one partner for good.
HOW TO ATTRACT THE TAURUS WOMAN
If you want to seduce a woman born with her Sun in Taurus, you will need to appeal to her sense of romance.

They need things to move slowly, and will rarely jump into a sexual bond quickly and without thinking long and hard about her choices.
A Taurus woman longs for true love and security. It is very unlikely that she will give into her desires and instincts quickly, and if someone wishes to have her heart, they will have to spend a lot of time and energy into the game of winning her over, making her feel comfortable. Once she falls in love she becomes affectionate, intimate, close and loyal, standing by her partner for as long as he is faithful to her. She has an eye for beautiful things and appreciates simplicity of fine things in life, so the way to approach her is through enjoyable shared moments, respect for privacy, fine food and a gentle touch. This is a woman who doesn’t like to feel rushed when dating and needs to have her time. Once she feels comfortable and secure with someone, she will happily and quickly give her heart without holding back.
