PERSONALITY
Taurus is genuine, practical and extremely determined, and has got a tremendous willpower. You cannot be lead anywhere against your will, but you gladly and faithfully follow someone in who you trust. You are a stable, balanced down-to-earth, peace-loving and law-obeying citizen. You are, however, not very fond of change. You are very possessive and very afraid of being in debt. You are often more of a practical than a theoretical person. Most times, you are reliable, steadfast, cautious and fair. You are not easily shaken by misfortune, but sometimes you are all too bound to your own conventions. You are mild, calm, good-natured and modest, and you are not easily angered. You dislike quarrel, and you avoid disliking anyone. You may, though, if heavily provoked, suddenly explode into violent outbreaks of furious anger and loose all of your self-control.
In rare cases, you tend to become ultra conservative, unoriginal, self-glorifying, quarrelsome and self-centred. You are also very dependent on compliments.
Even if it is not always obvious outwards, you are very aesthetic, and you like art, music and beauty. And at the same, you deeply detest ugliness. You may have artistic talents. Often, you are very religious.

PROFESSIONS
You are very hard-working, and a skilful labourer. You are loyal towards your superiors, and you are reliable, practical, methodical and ambitious. You are also very creative and successful as a self-employer.
You are well fit for many different branches – you may for example be a banker, architect, construction worker, and almost any type of bureaucrat, auctioneer, farmer, pharmacist, chemistry worker or industrial worker. You may also be a good superior within education, music and sculpting.

RELATIONSHIPS
You are a generous and faithful friend, but you rarely make friends outside of your own social class. You are very fond of pleasure, physical closeness, comfort, luxury and good food. This do not seldom lead to drunkenness, over-sensuality and over-desire. You are more amorous than the average person, sensually self-aware and sexually straightforward.
But you are a faithful and home-loving partner and a loving parent.
You are most compatible to
Taurus – Physically, this might be an excellent combination. Tendencies towards stubbornness and jealousy might cause problems, but still, as a whole this is a very stable and secure relationship.
Cancer – This is most often an excellent combination. You are both rather calm and caring, and both of you are housing a deep love of home and family.
Leo – There is a strong attraction between yourself and Leo. Leo might fulfil your desire for luxury and pleasure. To achieve a long-lasting relationship, Leo does though have to keep under control its will to dominate, and you have in your turn got to control your
jealousy.
Libra – You and Libra both appreciate beauty and the more exclusive things in life, and you might become very happy together.
Capricorn – You and Capricorn has got a lot in common. You are both responsible and practical. You understand each other very well, and you are very compatible emotionally. Your calm personality is just about what cold and distant-keeping Capricorn need to open up. It is, however, very important that you two heavy-hearted personalities try to have some fun, too, now and then.
Pisces – This is most times a very successful combination. Emotional Pisces finds great comfort in your compassionate nature, and you like the romantic, sensitive and flexible Pisces. You share a deep love for beauty and passion. Dreamy Pisces is brought down to earth by your down-to-earth personality, and Pisces might make you start dreaming.
You are not as compatible to
Aries - At the first sight, this might look like a wonderful combination. Your affectionate personality is exactly what Aries seek. You like the outgoing personality of Aries, and Aries
appreciate your down-to-earth nature. However, you are all too different for this to work in long terms.  
Gemini – A very bad combination. Gemini risk being all too restless and changeable for your calm persona. Pensive Gemini might find you all too shallow and materialistic. Neither is this a good match physically, as your sex drive is very much larger that of Gemini.
Virgo – You and Virgo has got a lot in common. Both of you want comfort, and both of you are down-to-earth and materialistic. But your tendency towards powerful emotional outbreaks now and then might be very trying for controlled Virgo, and Virgo’s tendency towards nagging and pedantry risks to get on your nerves, since you are very sensitive towards criticism.
Scorpio – There is vast mutual admiration between you and Scorpio, but also a lot of jealousy. This is a very volatile and probably not very long-lasting combination. The physical attraction is however overwhelming, and with the immense sex drive of both parties, there
would be a lot of sexual enjoyment in this relationship.  
Sagittarius – Restless and freedom-loving Sagittarius might have a difficult time coping with your calm and possessive nature, and straightforward, open and generous Sagittarius risks to make you easily make you jealous.
Aquarius – This is a very difficult combination. You are both of you fond of idleness and convenience. But this virtually also the only thing you have in common. Aquarius risks to become irritated by your conservative nature and you find it difficult to cope with the secretive and introvert nature of Aquarius.

THE MYTH BEHIND THE SIGN
To seduce Europa, the beautiful daughter of King Agenore of Phoenicia, Jupiter, the lord of the gods, transformed himself into a grand bull and visited her as she was bathing with some friends by the shore of Tyre. The girl jumped up onto the bull’s back, and he took her with him to the island of Crete. Later, Europa gave birth to a son, who became King Minos of Crete.
