Tauri are steadfast.

The second sign of the zodiac, Taurus is an earth sign, symbolized by the bull. A fitting symbol, indeed, as the bull encompasses the way a Taurus is measured and their methodical work ethic with a subtle nod to their innate stubbornness, as well.

Those born under a Taurus sun make up the most reliable, persistent and careful people of all the zodiac. They're patient with themselves and with others, never rushing through their projects or ideas but, instead, meticulously planning each step to ensure that it will bring them closer to their end goals. The diligent aspect of their personality leads many Tauri to flourishing business careers, complete with healthy bank accounts and lasting financial security.

Having a knack for numbers comes in handy for this sign, as Taurus is ruled by Venus — the planet of love and beauty. We see the ruling planetary influence in a Taurus's near-insatiable lust for luxury and love of material goods. Our ever-determined bulls desire only the very best of the best, the creme-de-la-creme and top-of-the-line of… well, everything. From curated artwork to sleek silk sheets to fine-dining experiences at five-star restaurants, Tauri want it all and they will put in the long hours of work to ensure they get just that.

Taurus-born can thank ruling-planet-V for their natural eye for design. It leads them to fill their homes with high-quality, craftsmen pieces and sprinkle tasteful accessories throughout. Transitional or traditional design styles will showcase their refined taste and spaces a timeless and comforting feel, reflective of their character.

Tauri require spaces that encourage leisurely lounging and the occasional self-indulgence. To that end, special attention should be given to their bedroom design. The use of soft colors, luxurious fabrics and time-withstanding furniture work in tandem to give Tauri the stability needed for recharge and relaxation.

Equally important, still, is that a Taurus's home is outfitted for optimal entertaining (and impressing!) their many house-guests. Tauri transform hosting into a virtual art form — continuously wowing friends with their furnishings and floral arrangements alike.

Luxury-lovers to their core — your Taurus will appreciate the meticulous planning and strategic saving you implemented to take them away for the weekend.
