Taurus is the second astrological sign in the modern zodiac. It is the grounding Earth sign coming right after Aries fire sign! Just like the Ox, Taurus (the Bull) is reliable, patient and practical. Taurus is about "work hard, play hard." They're one of the most hardworking Zodiac signs, but they know all about self-care too!
As a sign, Taurus is fixed, an astrological quality that reflects Taurus’s steadfast, loyal nature. Fixed signs are excellent at maintaining systems and Taureans prioritize consistency and reliability in all areas of their lives. It must be noted, however, that Taurus does have a bit of a reputation: What a Taurus perceives as dedication is often regarded by others as stubbornness. Accordingly, these bulls may end up lingering in unhealthy situations — whether relationships, jobs, or homes — longer than necessary just to prove a point. Despite their occasional obstinance, however, Taureans are dependable partners, soothing their friends and lovers with their trustworthiness and devotion.
Taureans are ambitious, smart and persevering. Like the bull that represents them, they will overcome any obstacle that comes between them and their goal! I think one perfect example of the Taurus is "The Rock," Dwayne Johnson!
Also like the bull that represents them, Taurus is also known to be stubborn (even if they're wrong, but don't say I said that lol!) And since they like security and stability, they tend to take the safe road.
If you need a gift for a Taurus, I hope you can use these as a starting point for what to pick and what may suit a Taurus!

NOTE about Zodiac Recommendations:
Reading about our astrological signs - a way of recognizing the grouping of stars that were in the sky at the time we were born, is fun and insightful! It's an entertaining and meaningful generalization that can give us a glimpse of a person's BASIC characteristics, preferences, flaws and fears. At different times and situations in my life, I can associate myself with qualities emphasized in EACH of the signs, and it's a very cool way of bringing about an awareness and making me THINK and pay attention to myself and my life and the people around me! The very same way that I use beads to express myself and give me time to reflect and appreciate and heal.
