Taurus the Bull

In Greek mythology, the Bull came from the tale of the god Zeus and the Phoenician princess Europa. To capture the princess’ attention, Zeus transformed himself as a handsome white bull. Europa was captivated by Zeus’ charm when she saw him that she decided to hop on his back.

When she did, he carried her across the sea to the island of Crete. There they settled and became parents to three children named Minos, Rhadamanthus, and Sarpedon.

Taurus is a constellation most noticeable during the winter months in the Northern Hemisphere. The Orion’s Belt is often used by stargazers to locate Taurus’ star clusters, Hyades, and the Pleiades. The red giant Aldebaran, which forms the Bull’s eye, is the constellation’s brightest star.

The second radiant star of the Taurus is Elnath, which forms its northern horn.

The Tenacious Taurus – What Makes Them Extraordinary?

Symbolized by the Bull, Taureans are tenacious and strong-willed individuals. Taurus relish luxury and comfort.

They value their day-offs because they like it in their pajamas, either curling up in bed with a good book, playing endless video games or just lounging in front of the TV all day. Movies and chill, anyone?

Taurus tend to be among the calmest signs in the zodiac. Although usually chill individuals, other signs should be careful not to mess with a Taurus because when they get mad, they tend to be the meanest pack like raging bulls.

Taurus people are also determined with their goals, being the bull-headed that they are.

Taurus, its Element, and Modality

Taurus’ is an Earth sign together with Capricorn and Virgo. Aside from their sensual nature, Earth signs are known to be grounded, practical and trustworthy.

Alongside Aquarius, Leo, and Scorpio, Taurus is also a Fixed sign. Those in the Fixed modality are perceived as loyal and stubborn.

Taurus, its House, and Planet

The ruling planet of the Taurus sign is Venus. Hence, Taureans have obtained the sensual qualities of the planet of love. Something about their aura is screaming ‘satisfying lover’.

The Second House is linked to finances and material possessions. Being in the Second House, Taurus seeks life’s assurance through the money they have and the things they own.

Taurus In Love

Compatibility with a Taurus

Because Taurus are pleasure-seeking and sensual individuals, two Taureans in a relationship are going to be very mindful of each other’s needs. Together they will enjoy life’s pleasures.

Problems may arise when one or both parties get exasperated. They have to be very careful in stirring each other’s negative emotions. Because the couple in a Taurus relationship are both stubborn and unyielding, it will be difficult for both of them to settle on something.

Since Taurus are determined in pursuing their goals, they tend to set everything else aside. They might unknowingly make their partner feel taken for granted which can make the relationship go down the drain.

However, Taurus are loyal and dependable so as long as each party is willing to compromise and problems are talked through, there is going to be a fantastic connection

Most Compatible Signs with Taurus

The most compatible signs with Taurus are Cancer, Capricorn, Pisces, and Virgo.

Taurus and Cancer

Are you currently attracted to a Cancer? Or are you already in a relationship with one? Then do not mess that up, Taurus.

Cancers and Taureans are a match made in heaven! The Crabs are very emotional folks who will be protected by the sensual Bull. These two will both enjoy the simplicities of life.

They will share so much affection in their relationship because it is exactly what they both need. Taurus’ gentle approach will be truly cherished by Cancer.

Taurus and Capricorn

One may think this a boring pairing because of the Taureans’ laid back attitude and the Caps’ uptight nature. However, they are mistaken. What makes a Taurus-Capricorn relationship exciting is their deep connection shared by intelligent conversations and heartfelt understanding.

The Sea-Goat’s mature approach to everything will help their Taurus partner achieve their goals. The couple in this partnership will achieve so much because Capricorn is a good organiser while Taurus is truly determined in finishing any plan.

Moreover, the Bull’s tender spirit will assure the Cap that it is not all that difficult to love and be loved.

Taurus and Pisces

Taurus and Pisces are a perfect union because both signs desire pleasure and romance. Pisces is so creative they tend to live in a world of their own and the Taurus is there to ground them.

The bull-headed Taurus will learn how to be more flexible with a Pisces on their side. The Bull’s sensuality and the Fish’s creativity will allow each other to explore an enchanting ride into their relationship.

Taurus and Virgo

Virgo is a sign of virginity while Taurus is ruled by Venus – how can this be a match? Because the Maiden is afraid of getting hurt and may have a different understanding of sexuality, the Bull is there to teach her a side of love and intimacy she does not know she needs.

The Taurus’ nurturing quality is something a Virgo would appreciate. Meanwhile, Virgo’s intelligence and power to reason will help Taurus develop a greater perception of the world. This will be a harmonious partnership if these two fall in love.

Least Compatible Signs with Taurus

The least compatible signs with Taurus are Aquarius and Leo.

Taurus and Aquarius

Opposites attract, they say, but this may not well be the case for a Taurus and an Aquarius. Taurus is more conventional while Aquarius chooses to take a more progressive approach to things.

The Water-Bearer is also stubborn like the Bull and this can cause a lot of problems into their relationship. Aquarians love seeking adventures, which is something that Taureans are not into as they prefer comforting scenarios than thrilling chases.

Taurus and Leo

A relationship between a Taurus and Leo will not be an easy one because with both being fixed signs, they will have to fight off each other’s stubbornness. A demanding Leo will be frustrating to a Taurus.

There will be disagreements and it might be hard for them to reach a compromise due to their inflexibility. More so, Leo loves socialising which is something a Taurus would not prefer to be doing.

Taureans would rather stay at home on a Friday night while Leo would love to go out and have fun. Both signs seek pleasure and sex play a large part in their relationship, but will that be enough to keep it going?

Is this incompatibility bad news for you, Taurus? Do not get discouraged though! Some good things take hard work.

For those signs not included in either of the lists, then take it as good news. You may not be the most compatible, but you are not as bad either.

Have you ever wanted the sound of the ocean splashing in the background as you work at your desk, or cook dinner in the kitchen?

The White Noise Maker is something I use every day. It has 6 sound options including Thunder, the sound of the Ocean, a summer night, rain and white noise.

I love the sound of rain playing in the background, or the sound of the ocean waves crashing on the sand. Sometimes I use it when I go to bed, or even in my office with my Asakuki Diffuser giving off the gentle scent of lavender in the air.

It`s also nice having the Himalayan salt Lamp on in the background with my Crystal Tree of Life next to it. I have them in my office and they create a “zen” feel for me while I’m working.
