Taurus, you're the strong, persistent accumulators of the zodiac.

When you decide to do something you move in a steady, consistent pace towards it and seldom can be swayed away from your goal. You're tough, stable and extremely stubborn.

You love beautiful, luxurious things. From art (frequently of yourself) to expensive cars, homes, clothing and jewelry; you're driven by the need to feel secure and surround yourself with beauty. You love to indulge all your senses. You cannot resist candy and sweets. You love getting a massage, dancing or relaxing in a hot tub especially if this affords you the total enjoyment of your mate.

Security is very important to you and you are one of the most loyal signs of the zodiac. Ownership is at the top of your list, whether in property or love. You tend to be possessive, jealous, extravagant, flirtatious, lazy and love to show off your possessions.

Melodious, soothing sounds are also important to you and often you have a voice that can enchant a wild beast.

You work best in a luxurious environment with a set routine.

You can excel as a florist, gardener, beautician, manicurist, model, art dealer, artist including painter, sculptor, jeweler and woodworker, classical musician, treasurer, banker, stockbroker, accountant, cashier, money broker, singer, dancer, massage therapist, throat specialist, designer and entrepreneur.
