Welcome to the Characteristic of Taurus, the web page that presents the traits of those persons who, rather uncomfortably, were born under the Bull. This may provide inspiration to card makers wishing to reflect the recipient's nature in a card

Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)
is the fixed/earth sign.
Taureans stubbornly cling to their own ideas and habits and may fail to take advantage of new ideas or situations, because they cannot see their practical use. They have to understand that while tenacity and a stable temperament yield reward in many endeavors, tolerance and flexibility are the best assets when it comes to personal relationships. Always struggling to keep peace and harmony in their lives, The warm-hearted Taurus is equipped to listen to someone's problem and then give them the advice they need. They are patient and very persistent in arriving at their goal in life. In fact, they are so stubborn that once they've made up their mind about something, nothing short of an atom bomb can change it. With friends and mates, they tend to be jealous and possessive. However, Taurus will lavish emotional and financial attention on friends and loved ones to a fault.

Before leaving the subject Characteristic of Taurus, here's the traits of the Earth Signs of which Taurus is one

Earth signs
 (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) are usually solid and dependable, just as the ground beneath us. They are gifted at manifestation in the concrete world and take pleasure in finding useful purposes for everything. Earth signs are natural recyclers--they deplore wasted resources of any kind. The disadvantage of Earth signs is that too often attention is focused on material production. They can become caught in repetitive ruts, forgetting to use their imagination. Earths frequently attract fire signs into their lives to provide an element of excitement and change. But then, of course, the Earths must deal with anxiety over what the more unpredictable fires might do next. The dance of life continues.
