Being a Taurus or your Ascendant is Taurus:
As a Taurus Sun sign, you are the second astrological sign in the zodiac. This also makes you the first Earth sign and the first Fixed sign. The planet Venus is your ruling planet and represented by the 2nd house – ‘I need’.
Tranquility, joy of life and sensuality are essential to you: you are a simple and quiet nature. You find happiness easily because you are not competitive, your relaxed attitude and your common sense invariably lead you towards fulfilment, even though you are not the number one, nor do you move in haste. Constructing is important to you. Your patience and your persistence yield strong, steadfast, sustainable efforts that can withstand any pitfalls. You are gentle, with a slow thinking process, but once you have opted for an orientation, nothing, nor anyone, can make you change your mind. You loathe changes in general and once you have taken the few major unavoidable decisions in the course of your life, you are on track.
You are faithful, constant, sturdy, patient, tough, persevering, strong, focused, sensual, stable, concrete, realistic, steady, loyal, robust, constructive, and tenacious. You need security, but you are also stubborn, rigid, possessive, spiteful, materialistic, fixed or slow.
Foods you like are apples, pears, berries, corn and other cereals, grapes, artichokes, asparagus, beans. You are also likely to enjoy the tastes of cloves in cooking and a warm cup of spearmint tea.
In the body: Taurus governs the neck and the throat.
