Taurus, the second sign, ruled by Venus, represents enjoyment, stability and creativity. Very true to their earth element, Taurus natives really want to enjoy life, they value their possessions and beautiful things. Taureans can be very enduring, sometimes even complacent and lazy, as long as they have their comforts. Stubbornness is another Taurean trait. Taurus’s words are “I own”. After birth, and the first few months, you start to realize that you are a separate being, separate from your mother. You realize that you have your own body and as you grow you start forming your values, ideas, your own thoughts and own your own things. Aries, the first sign, represent your birth and your body, and Taurus represent what comes after that; it signifies the first 18 years of growing up. The values which you form growing up, and later, those that you come to hold as your own are represented by Taurus.
