They say that Taurus represents all of the best elements of the old money bourgeoisie.  They are generally conservative law abiding citizens with ambition and a strong will, but they also know when it is a good idea to follow and they will never sacrifice something on a matter of principle.

They are also very sociable people who love engaging in conversation and meeting new people.  The drawback is they usually only gravitate towards people of the same demographic as them and have little interest in meeting people who may be radically different.

On rare occasions a Taurus may be obstinately and exasperatingly self-righteous, unoriginal, rigid, ultraconservative, argumentative, querulous bores, stuck in a self-centered rut. They may develop a brooding resentment through nursing a series of injuries received and, whether their characters are positive or negative, they need someone to stroke their egos with a frequent, "Well Done!" Most Taurus’ are not this extreme though.

A Taurus may not look like it from the outside, but they usually have a great taste for the finer things in life, but disdain those who unnecessarily flaunt their material possessions.  They like to keep things low key and enjoy them on a personal level.  This also extends to the world of art, where private collections and rare collectables often give them great joy.

They are more than averagely amorous and sensually self-conscious, but sexually straightforward and not given to experiment. They make constant, faithful, home loving spouses and thoughtful, kindly parents, demanding too much of neither their spouses nor children.

They can be over possessive and may sometimes play the game of engineering family roles for the pleasure of making up the quarrel. If anyone offends their amour proper they can be a determined enemy, though magnanimous in forgiveness if their opponent makes an effort to meet them halfway.
