Taurus is my zodiac sign

Dedicated to all Taurus….

Astrology , horoscope, zodiac, stars, the Milky Way –  such mystical words at least for me. The view of the starry sky is always fascinating, isn’t it?

Can you imagine that these stars and constellations can make a significant impact on someone’s personality depending on his(her) date of birth. 

People like to study horoscopes. Some want to know their future, the others want to get answers (and better promising answers). 

I was the same way when I lived in Russia. I was checking my daily horoscope, trying to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Right now I don’t have any time and interest in daily horoscope forecasts. 

However, I am still a Taurus. 

Here are sign characteristics. Let’s see how they match me.

 According to astrology, zodiac, signs website: 

Element            Earth

Quality              Fixed – what does it mean?

Color                 Green, Pink

Day                   Friday, Monday – are they my happy days?

Ruler                 Venus

Lucky numbers: 2, 6, 9, 12, 24 – should I put them in my lottery ticket?

Strengths: Reliable, patient, practical, devoted, responsible, stable

I completely agree with those characteristics. Maybe I should add them to my resume? 

✔️I sometimes think  I am a little bit too practical.  I don’t like to throw things away until I get the most out of them. The problem is that it may take a while until I actually reuse (recycle) these items. For example, I needed to store my old t-shirts somewhere until I crochet a kitchen rug out of them. 

✔️Because I am patient it’s only me who takes Crackle to the vet or somewhere else. 

✔️Responsible – when my husband tells me to do something, I really try to do it. 

✔️Stable – of course I am, until a new idea gets into my “unstable” brain. 

Weaknesses: Stubborn, possessive, uncompromising

Who said that stubborness is weakness? In 2015, I took a permit test. I failed on Wednesday morning. I was very angry with myself, I didn’t tell Daniel. On Friday morning (the same week), I passed it! Daniel said, “ Good thing that my wife is so stubborn”. Since then, I don’t consider it as weakness, this is my strength. 

✔️Yes, I am possessive. My husband knows. I told him at the very beginning, “Everything that is yours is mine, and everything that is mine is mine”. LOL Even my husband doesn’t belong to himself. 

Uncompromising – really? I think I am pretty flexible.

Taurus likes: Gardening, cooking, music, romance, high quality clothes, working with hands.

Who said to my husband that I like gardening? I’ve done a lot of this in Russia. Now I just keep him company in the yard. However, I get all the credits for a nice looking front yard. 

I guess I may like cooking because I love to eat. But not only that. Being Russian, I am very hospitable, I like to cook for my family and friends. Living in the US, I have to learn a new way of cooking. I can make 7 types of soups but I don’t know how to cook meat. It doesn’t make the process of cooking pleasant, but I’m stubborn. So, my husband and I are still alive. And I’m proud of my recent achievement – Chicken Parmesan. 

My musical taste is very poor or cheap. I like pop music, something I can dance to. I don’t know any famous singers and bands. But I do love live music. Live music is one of the ten things that make me happy. 

Romance? I’m not 14 years old, I’m too practical to be romantic. 

Who doesn’t like high quality clothes? I do. But I used to experience a shortage of money. Because of this I developed a bad habit of buying cheap or discounted things. I try to look good though. But it seems to me I am losing the skill of buying matching clothes. So I buy what I buy.

I love working with hands. I really do. I can sew, knit or do a simple craft. 

Taurus dislikes: Sudden changes, complications, insecurity of any kind, synthetic fabrics

Sudden changes and insecurity of any kind – who on Earth would like that! 

Complications are not bad sometimes. They keep me on my toes. 

According to Cosmopolitan on Apr 19, 2019:
The Earth sign collective are practical, stoic, determined and materialistic. Taurus are famous for their stubbornness, but there’s more to them than that….they’re bit of a dark horse.
Ruled by the planet Venus, they share her traits of beauty, artistry, hedonism and a love of luxury comfort. 

That was an interesting remark of a “dark horse”. I think it’s true. I’m not as simply as you can think.  There is always something in my mind that I don’t share with.

Let’s talk a little bit about the zodiac year in which I was born.

Year of the Rat.

Personality of the Rat


Adaptable – ✔️

Smart – not as much as I would like 

Cautious – ✔️


Alert – ✔️

Positive – ✔️

Flexible –  ✔️what did I tell you before?

Outgoing – ✔️

Cheerful – ✔️


Timid – yes, I am cowardly. 

Unstable – only when I get a new idea.

Stubborn – what? Again? It looks like a diagnosis!

Picky – probably, But I’m a woman after all.

Lack of persistence – true, I can’t stand up for myself. I don’t know how to argue. 

Querulous – really? Well, why not.

Intelligent with high thinking faculty, but conservative in practice. 

So, what do you think, do I match my horoscope characteristics?
