Every Taurus profile will tell you that members of this sign can be extremely stubborn.  This is such a strong characteristic of Taurus that people often forget that there is a benefit to this trait.  The stubbornness of this sign ensures that needs are met and work is completed.  When a Taurus puts their mind to something, there is nothing outside of themselves that can put a stop to it.  Represented in Western Astrology by the bull, Tauruses are strong willed, determined, and dependable.  They are passionate about the things that they value most and they will protect their vision at all costs.  Security and safety are of great importance to this sign, not just for themselves, but for those they care about.  Tauruses often keep a small group of close friends around rather than try to please the masses, and in return they are loyal, generous, and protective of this group of people.

It wouldn't be a complete Taurus profile without mentioning some of the less desirable traits as well.  Taurus's need for security can become so wholly overwhelming that members of the Taurus sign often find themselves swimming in deep waters of fear and anxiety.  Any change that comes along only increases their uncertainty, which only makes Taurus feel more worried that something will go wrong.

In the Western Zodiac Taurus is the dependable one.  Like Capricorn, Taurus is a hard worker and is patient and persistent in their goals, but they are also more sensitive, romantic, and future-focused than Capricorn.   They are not terribly expressive (unless there is another influence in the birth chart that changes this), but they are indulgent.  

Tauruses like to host parties at their own homes, where they feel comfortable.  Some might think Tauruses are materialistic or snobby, but Tauruses have good taste.  They like creative things and often can express themselves artistically through their hands (sculpting, pottery, etc.).  This is a very romantic sign that thrives on one-on-one relationships.  For a Taurus profile, I must offer this warning: don't ever push a Taurus past their limit to see what will happen.  You won't like what happens when they blow their top and all of the kindness and generosity goes out the window.
