The Sun in Taurus

If you're feeling like a fancy dinner or a shopping spree, the sun might well be in Taurus.

This season is both indulgent and practical, promoting a feeling of security primarily through the possession of material goods. It might seem like Taurus season is superficial, but it's anything but: when the sun is in Taurus it's easy to understand that luxurious lifestyles come through hard work. Taurus season is about working hard and playing hard, creating a natural sense of balance and equilibrium. Slow and steady wins the race. Taurus is the sign of the Bull, so this month you might feel extra stubborn and likely to dig your heels in.

Sun in Taurus Personality

"Creature of habit" was undoubtedly first used to designate someone with their sun in Taurus. They want what they want and generally put in the work to get it despite their lazy reputation. Overall, Taurus is a mellow sign who faithfully adheres to certain routines, comforts, and a "pleasure principle" (shout out to Taurus queen Janet Jackson)—regardless of available time or funds.

They exemplify the urge for quality in all of us but usually not purely due to materialistic tendencies. Taureans derive real emotional satisfaction and peace from the things that they own. “Security” is the keyword here and one of their driving motivations. It's a fear of these natives to be left without. They need to feel comfortable and at home wherever they are. Therefore, Taurus will pursue this need for comfort stubbornly.

Positive Traits

Taurus boasts an eye for beauty with a penchant for natural aesthetics. Unlike their Venusian sister, Libra, Taurus' fashion picks are less likely to include extravagant gowns and sparkles, instead opting for lovely yet tasteful pieces. Still, like the Bull symbolizing their sign, Taurus makes for a reliable worker who strives for stability—material or otherwise.

Though not the swiftest, a Taurus' worth ethic is impressive. They're known to complete tasks and projects for which other signs would have long since thrown in the towel. This dependability extends to their relationships, where they're known to be devoted partners and friends.

Negative Traits

At times, the Taurean love of luxury runs amok and degenerates into greed and gluttony. Additionally, Taurus' need for stability may slow their actions, causing them to stall where they should start. Snap decisions aren't their forte, and they balk at changing plans or circumstances. In the realm of relationships, they're similarly intransigent.

Much like their sister sign, Scorpio, what's theirs is theirs. Though, to their credit, they're a little less obsessive about it. At Taurus' worst, their loyalty becomes possessiveness that seeks to bend others to their ironclad will. In this way, the Bull becomes a bully.


Amidst the hustle and bustle of modern life, there is Taurus, sipping on a smoothie and enjoying their free time. Whereas others in the zodiac may favor a less balanced work/life balance—yes, we're looking at you, cardinal signs—the Bull knows the value of rest. However, all things must occur in moderation, a concept with which Taurus may struggle.

The Bull's internal clock may be a little divorced from that of society at large. No amount of prodding or pushing can force them to leave their beds or general positions. Sure, they may love the lap of luxury a little too much, but don't we all?
