Although you tend to have a keen wit and are intellectual, you may become fixed in your opinions. Sometimes you may let your vices get the better of you and go to extremes, such as becoming too lavish in your home decor or clothing.

Taurus is the second of the zodiac signs and is represented by the bull. This sign is ruled by Venus (Aphrodite) the goddess of love and the element is earth. Taurus is an extremely materialistic sign and money and possessions figure on the list of top priorities for Taureans. They are connoisseurs of fine things and can appreciate beauty in everything around them ranging from the beauty of a simple rosebud to the melodious sounds of Mozart.

Taureans falls into category of strong, silent types. They have a great deal of inner strength and capacity to withstand tough situations and come out of them without scars. Their religious faith is strong but can sometimes be surprisingly unconventional.

They are warm-hearted and can be extremely affectionate. They can be relied upon to be good friends who will be a solid support in times of trouble.

Taurus governs the throat and neck and so Taureans are susceptible to throat infections, goiter and respiratory ailments such as asthma. They also have a tendency to develop diseases of the genitals, womb, liver and kidneys and can easily get overweight.

Astropsychology of Taurus

Money, money, money… The conversations of those born under the sign of Taurus inexorably revolve around money, their life is based on money, their desires and the most secret ambitions concern money. So it is natural that money dictates Taurus’ moods and sensations and drives them every time when a choice is needed. By working hard on this unique idea of material enrichment, money comes but how much energy is taken up?

The main problem of many people born under this sign is not making money but giving yourself time to spend it. Money is determined by the happiness it brings us and those who work or invest 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, end up depriving themselves of freedom and easy going nature which are necessary to be happy. So the irritability and the coldness of these people could be the symptoms of an emotional earthquake that is about to happen.

Combining work and love is not easy for anyone, but the Taureans, by favoring the importance of money, are running the risk of losing the meaning of life that is not only made up of promotions and salary rises, but of love that could turn into hatred, of hard work that requires rest, marriage, children and fun.

If someone points out that it is better to go on a holiday than looking at a computer screen all day, you say you’d rather drive a luxury car than an old Fiat. Sure, it’s nice to make money but making money is only the first step. To savor the pleasure of being comfortably off, you have to know how to spend, or better – to have the courage to spend what you have saved.

Your bank account is not enough, nor is the apartment in the centre of the town or the expensive furniture. Money is important, but don’t be surprised if your wife leaves you for someone as ordinary as a factory worker. This happens and you’ll be indignant to realize that the working class can find heaven on Earth.
