Taureans are driven by their affections rather than there emotions. They need to feel emotionally and physically secure and stable. They prefer their lives as they are and like the idea of permanency. Change is not easy for Taurus as they are a fixed sign by nature. Taurus is here to learn about values material and financial as well as emotions and sexual desire. What is really important to them, is it material possessions, relationships, integrity, faith. The Taurus house is related to money, and how is money earned. What is the purpose of money, and how will I use it? For what purpose?
Here are some Taurus character traits: Slow methodical, practical, reserved, determined, strong will, patient, self disciplined, persistent, loyal to family and friends, warm hearted and loving, honest, integral, keen sense of smell and touch, love the earth, not a risk taker, like steady routine, common sense ..stubborn, possessive, slow to change, lack flexibility, lazy, resentful, inflexible, greedy, self indulgent, materialistic, strong personal opinions and closed to other's ideas.
The most compatible signs for Taurus are the other two earth signs, Virgo and Capricorn. They also are attracted to Cancer and Pisces. Scorpio is their opposite sign so there may be struggles, but you know what they say 'opposites attract'. This combination can work if the moon or ascendant signs are compatible. Taureans are affectionate, loving, and romantic. They like warm and cozy romantic dinners, a sensual massage, Romanic music and are so very sensitive to touch and smell.
The Sun entered Taurus on April 21, please refer to last months astrology column for April 21-30 th .
Taurus in an earth sign, and when the sun shines on one earth sign, it gives a positive boost for all earth signs.....so Virgo and Capricorn will feel good this month! ..

Your astrological chart is a psychological map of your personality; more specificallyyour genetic coding. Your environment has also been an influence or perhaps has deepened your innate patterns.
We can change these by listening to our own intuition and surrendering to our higher self. Healing can take place through Grace ... the essence of unconditional love.
My most basic belief is "Listen to the inner voice".
