Those born under the Zodiac Sign Taurus (Vrushabha), the second Sign of the Zodiac calendar, focus on the rewards they would get for their efforts and hard-work, and would not plunge headlong into the challenge of the game without thinking through it. Symbolized by the Bull, the Taurus natives are down to earth and display a no-nonsense approach, often only saying what they really mean.
Practical, stable and reliable, the Taurus prefer to take each day as it comes and march towards their goals slowly but steadily. Their strength is in their stability, loyalty and dogged determination. It takes a lot to deviate the Taurus from his path and make him lose his focus. The Taurus wants to reach their final destination, and they will!
But, the Taurus are averse to taking risks, and certainly are never rash. The reason number one – the Bulls are security lovers – their security net is paramount to them. Reason numbers two – they are lazy and have an inherent need to hold on to their possessions. So, all in all a Bull likes to play a safe game. Well, that is not such a bad thing always, though this tendency may stop them from going all out and having fun.
These security-loving souls like to be rooted to their environment, work, home or opinions. Others may call it their stubbornness, but the Taurus prefers to call it the need to guard their stability. This makes their mind closed to new ideas and radical changes. But, this doesn’t stop them from giving their best to whatever they undertake. Thus, they may be stubborn and headstrong; they also possess a dogged determination that’s so rarely seen elsewhere in the Zodiac. No wonder, the Bulls rarely buckle under pressure and adversity. They prefer to be in a rather Zen-like peace. Don’t mistake them to be withdrawn, though.
Usually, the Taurus are extremely patient and dependable. But when annoyed, the Taurus will rage and turn ferocious and unstoppably angry. Sure, they are temperamental, but once the thunder dies down, they also prove to be the sloppiest of sentimentalists. They are also quick to regain their Buddha-like stance, almost as if nothing happened!
The Bulls also carry a very strong sense of values and possess a distinct personality. Besides, they are very artistic and sometime very musical too. The good life in all its forms – the fine arts, music, good food, physical pleasures and material goods are heaven on Earth to the Taurus-born. If you closely observe a Taurus, you will see that their possessions speak highly of the need to own the best. This is not to say that they are self-centered individuals, but materialistic they are. Plus, family lovers that they are, the Bulls also ensure that the things they do or possess make their near and dear ones happy.
Overall speaking, most Taurus natives are excellent individuals. However, their stubbornness, combined with their trademark laziness, can create problems they may find difficult to deal with. Often they make little or no effort to change the situation they are around them. Hence, they may find themselves in similar kinds of situation again and again. The life partner a Taurus chooses bears a strong impact on the personality of the Taurus. Thus, they need to find someone, who will give them the much-desired stability. Usually, Taurus – Taurus , Taurus – Capricorn, Taurus – Libra and Taurus – Virgo make for good life partners.
Taurus Moon likes the familiar instead of the exotic. They will be prepared to put up with just about anything to preserve this familiar sense of security. Strong-willed, they are set in their ways. They want to create a solid, comfortable existence so they feel secure and happy. Moon in Taurus is steady, and makes those near them feel comforted. They can be very conservative and set in their ways. Sociable, Moon Sign Taurus loves companionship. They are emotionally balanced, and like to finish one thing before starting another.
They don’t like unpredictable or messy situations or emotional outbursts. They take their time before committing to anything, but once they do, they are reliable and persevere, no matter what it takes. You can usually trust their instincts. They analyze every move first to find out what is the safest course. They can become predictable and slaves to routine, since this gives them a sense of security.

They will stand by their mates even through the worst of times. Their loyalty is a quality to treasure, although they have been known to test their relationships to see if they will survive a challenge. They are gentle, thoughtful and kind.

The urge to collect usually begins when they are very young. They have the ability to get a bargain or a lot for their money. This may give others the impression that they must keep up with your lifestyle to be your friend. They prefer people who offer the same level of energy and sincerity than those who may be well-connected financially.
High voltage of the previous days, associated with the passage of the moon through the sign of Aries, is falling. In the days of Taurus people feel safe, secure and peaceful. The ground is no longer escaping from under their feet; everyone is standing firmly on the Earth and feel quite confident. Thoughts are not jumping like crazy in the heads, and the reactions are slowing down. In the days of Taurus, we all are a little bit “unsophisticated browsers”. In addition, we are now hard to budge; there is a tendency to stubbornness. We become peaceful, slow and a bit phlegmatic. In these days it is good to deal with the household chores, to solve everyday problems in life – to buy food, make minor changes in the interior of the house, and spend this time devoted to the routine current affairs. But it will be better to wait with the business. It is better not to enter any large deals and not to sign any important contracts. There may be many mistakes due to the slow response and inability to think quickly.
Taurus is a sign of the Earth element and it is managed by the planet Venus. Therefore, a person, whose moon is in the Taurus zone, will be sensitive to his physical environment and to comfort, will be very responsive to the harmony and disharmony of relations with the outside world.

In life such a person will unconsciously choose and, above all, perceive the situations, which by their nature are quiet, slowly evolving, stable, giving the opportunity to unwind and relax, giving the possibility of some accumulation of comfort. And in any situation, these components will be perceived first.
Every situation is always wider than what we perceive, we are always interacting with only a part of the situation, we always build our relationship with the inner world of the situation, and what we perceive and see in the first place, is determined by the moon in the sign.
