The second sign of the zodiac, Taurus comes forth quickly, laying foundations of security and bringing the new cycle that Aries initiated down to earth. A fixed sign, therefore resistant to change, once a Taurus is comfortable, they settle in. Because Taurus so greatly dislikes change they cannot be rushed into anything new. As an earth sign, one of the densest elements, Taurus resonates with the richness of the earth and the sensual pleasures that come from it.

If you lack in the self-esteem department, you may become stuck in the rut of financial limitation. When you are happy with yourself and your work, the financial security you seek will find its way into your life. Be careful not to brag though, as taking yourself way to seriously can have a very negative impact on your relationships. If you value yourself, you do not have a need to continuously have your ego stroked by others. Life has a way of reflecting the love you have for yourself.

They can also become possessive, stubborn and unchanging, even when change is necessary.
