This zodiac sign has a built-in energy conservation program. It will patiently assess whether something is worth the investment of time and resources. Until then, slow and steady wins the Taurus race.
This sign encourages us to break our work into simple steps then take daily action. Taurus is the sign of the builder, helping us create concrete results for our diligent efforts. Under the influence of a Taurus planetary transit, we roll up our sleeves and get the job done.
On the flipside, Taurus energy can also be overindulgent, stubborn, lazy, vain, tightfisted and too cautious. The other two earth signs are Virgo and Capricorn. Under the influence of a Taurus planetary cycle, we all become more grounded and easygoing, taking the proper steps necessary to ascertain our goals through diligent effort and output.
Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, luxury, and beauty. Who knew this charming goddess came from such violent origins? That is sensual Taurus in a nutshell. As their constellation and symbol they are known for can testify, those born under the Taurus zodiac sign can be bullish and stubborn. They do not like quick change and will fight very hard against it.
It is difficult to change their mind once they have made a decision, and this can make for a tough situation if you have to work on a shared project with them. When changes are needed, it can be difficult to convince them that it is necessary, and even when you do, they will naturally want to take their time and progress gradually, which can irritate their teammates, family and friends.
Sometimes their connection to the material world can make them a bit possessive - with both people and things. Their appreciation for what be sensual can become greedy for those under this zodiac sign that lack maturity or low self-esteem. Being naturally patient people, it takes a lot to make a Taurean angry, but when they are, be sure to stand back as far as you can. This zodiac sign is rather fierce and protective when they are pushed too far and too fast.

The Taurus zodiac sign likes to take it slow in all areas of their life, and love is no different. They need to establish a strong foundation and feel secure and stable before making the decision to establish a relationship. They may take a while to commit to any serious relationship - but this also means that they will stick with a relationship and work hard to make it good.
They often make loyal marriage partners, reliable parents, and attentive lovers. The downside of this however, is that they can stay in relationships that they are no longer happy in for much longer than they should, thinking that they can make a hard situation work if only they put in the effort. They do not tolerate partners breaking their loyalty and will never forget transgressions of fidelity.
They are not likely to commit these types of transgressions themselves, and if they do will feel incredibly guilty about it.
What delights Taurus the most is the idea of starting a home with their partner, building a life with someone that they adore. Loyalty is something that is very important to those under the Taurus zodiac sign. They will be fiercely loyal to friends and family, and usually expect the same from others.
As a fixed earth sign, Taurus lives in the here and now. Gemini cuspers will have the most advantages this month. Although the digestive system is sensible, during this week you are not going to experiment anything unpleasant at this level. Taurus can still be kind of lazy in bed, wanting the partner to do most of the work. May can be the month where some change occurs.
They love to laugh and are generally the funny ones in their friend groups. They will savor any time spent with family and friends, and will never miss the opportunity to help the ones that they love. They are also very protective, and will also fight for their loved ones if they feel like they are being threatened. They can have trouble losing friends and family because these constitute major changes in their lives, but their grounded natures help them to get through any grief they may be feeling.
With their slow and deep thinking, they can take a lot longer than most to figure out what they want to do with their life. They may be late bloomers, and hit milestones much later than their peers, but when they do eventually make a decision, they will get comfortable fast and stay there for as long as possible.
Taurus, like in their relationships, can have a problem with staying in jobs that aren't working out for longer than they really should. This can be due to a sense of loyalty, or the fear of change. Usually, they are very hard workers, and the type of colleagues you can really count on when you need an extra hand.
Loving nature, they can be inclined to better enjoy jobs that allow them to be close to nature, or at least give enough free time to visit.
