Ever hear of "Ferdinand the Bull"? You know, the one where the bull could not be disturbed for love or money. Well, TAURUS-the bull is a perfect example, these guys/gals will do nothing, go nowhere, unless they want to. And when a Taurus decides to do something, it's like trying to stop a runaway locomotive! It's virtually impossible. Trying to give the bull the `no' answer when he wants to hear `yes', can drive you nuts. He will hound, nag and bug until you tell him to drop dead (and he'll still keep up the pressure), or until you give in.
Do you need a loyal friend, true blue to you, unwavering in the face of opposition? Try a Taurus on for size. They won't let you down if they believe you are a true friend. On the other hand, they can be very stubborn, and will cling to ideas regardless of what you say in opposition to them. They are not swayed emotionally. If you are to have any hope of changing their minds, then you will have to use "logic".
Got a new love interest and you say he's a TAURUS? Well hang on to your hat, (this applies to males and females equally). If you remember the big hit song, "Behind Closed Doors", then you have some idea of what's in store for you. This is sooo.. typical of the sign of the bull. Butter wouldn't melt in his mouth in public, (dislikes public affection, it looks so yucky), but just wait until he gets you alone.
Taureans appear to be laid back. Some of them are, but many of them have great voices. It's a musical sign. Bing Crosby, Perry Como, (are these guys laid back or what?), Fred Astaire, Lee Majors, (well, he did sing once), Queen Elizabeth II, (she always appears to be in control), and Sigmund Freud, (the father of psychology, his real interest was sex).
Every Astrological sign has dominance over a part of the body and TAURUS rules the neck and throat. As a TAURUS, you are susceptible to picking up colds, tonsilitis, whip-lash, etc. Male Taureans often have big necks and stocky builds. This does not necessarily follow for women. Some notable examples are Michelle Pfeifer, Ann Margret, and Carol Burnett.
