Taurus Career, Money & Success
Taurus' Career Mantra: "One step at a time."
Taurus greatest career strength: Persistence. A Taurus will look at a project, break it down into steps, and get things done, even if it means burning the midnight oil. Taurus never utters the words "too busy" and quickly becomes a cherished member of any work team.
Taurus greatest career challenge: Respecting authority. A Taurus will go the extra mile-if they believe in the project. But if they don't like a project or a manager, they'll dig in their heels and get things done, but with some side-eye and shrugged shoulders. Bulls need to learn that, even if the project isn't managed the way they think it should be, following a boss's orders is all part of the process.
Taurus' Work Style
Bulls are amazing project managers, able to conceptualize an idea, break it down into parts and suss out who can best do what. This sign isn't looking for the glory and hates office politics. A Taurus would much prefer a day of checking things off their to-do list to spending hours in endless meetings, and they inwardly roll their eyes whenever workplace conversation turns to gossip.
Taurus is a smart, well-respected leader who is great at delegating and giving credit when others deserve it. Taureans may not be the flashiest bosses, but they lead by example. They can be incredibly creative when given the time and opportunity to do so, and they're uniquely talented at bringing their brainstorm to fruition at work. They are also diligent. That coworker who's the first one in and last one out in the office is likely a Taurus. Bulls are team players, and will do whatever it takes to get the job done. This is great when all team members are on the same page, less great when other coworkers take advantage of Taurus' natural lend-a-hand attitude.
Taurus' Dream Careers
With above-board ethics, dependability, and resourcefulness, Taurus is in demand on the job front. With the attributes of persistence and thoroughness (as well as the allure of a big paycheck to finance a luxurious lifestyle), the Bull can undoubtedly build a sound career. Likely job titles include:
Executive: Observation and follow through for corporate higher-ups and industry giants make you favored by the gods of business. Respect for authority and hard work keep you on deck for projects requiring managerial savvy, grounded progress, and completion. They know they can depend on you, Taurus. And you know that you've earned that bountiful bonus once the deal closes.
Chef: Taurus has the much-needed finesse and patience to develop great culinary talents. Your Venus-inspired palate loves the best of the best, and you can beautifully create five-star meals and plating designs that rival your top competitors in the business. Dedication to long hours and determination to succeed will keep renowned restaurant critics singing your praises.
Politician: Honorable and intuitive, Taurus can measure the field of public opinion and help small or large communities achieve common goals. Constructive and practical, you work tirelessly to help balance budgets and give much-needed aid in education, the arts, and culture. Your trustworthy demeanor and ability to be a good team player evokes your constituents' respect and support.
Architect: Designing and building structures can align perfectly with Taurus' methodical, structured mentality. Your immeasurable patience and talent give you staying power with every aspect of original design, structural re-modifications, function, safety considerations, and interpersonal communications with clients. Guard your stress factor against the long hours with pleasurable leisure activities.
Biologist: Attention to detail, a love of logic, and an interest in the natural world makes biology a great choice for science-loving Bulls. Equally content to work solo with a microscope or connect with colleagues for meetings, ideas, and fieldwork, Taureans are satisfied rolling up their sleeves and working long hours to learn new things and contribute to the field of science.
Taurus and Money
Bulls love luxury, but they also love to feel secure, so they make sure that they have the funds to pay for their splurge before whipping out the plastic. Logic and numbers appeal to that rational Taurus brain, so they enjoy balancing budgets and setting up investment accounts. Since Taureans know what they're worth and what they deserve, they won't let emotion cloud the picture when it's time to negotiate or ask for a promotion or raise. In general, Bulls are often described as "good with money" and recognize their hard work to get anything they have.
If You Work for a Taurus Boss
Taurus has plenty of stamina and a flawless sense of organization. Willing to stretch a deadline if you need more time, this boss is a comforting presence rather than a dragon. But he or she wants detailed estimates and loathes on-the-job improvisation. Your Taurus boss wants plain talk about any problem that's worrying you, evidence that you're cost-effective asset for the company, and professional discretion.
Results matter. A Taurus boss will likely be in the office before you, but they aren't watching the clock (unless you're habitually late). Of course, it's nice to come in early, but know that a Taurus boss cares far more about results than how many hours you've sat at your desk.
Look your best. Although down to earth, a Taurus cares about appearance. Unbrushed hair, scuffed shoes, and faded outfits won't impress a Bull boss-they like sharp dressers.
Keep it real. A Taurus boss is fair, but they hate office drama when it interferes with clear communication and efficient procedure. When you must loop a Taurus boss into an issue, be sure to keep things fact-based.
Skip the excuses. If you didn't get something done, be ready to make sure it gets done ASAP. If your excuse is valid, share but keep it brief, as a Taurus boss is much more concerned about how to fix things and get back on track.
Tidy up. Your Taurus boss wants the office to be a place of beauty and serenity. Appeal to that side by making sure that your workspace is neat-they hate seeing piles of paper everywhere.
What Success Means to a Taurus
Taurus thrives on getting things done, especially when that involves solving a problem. Taurus thrives on work that others may see as too difficult, they're always happy to go the extra mile to make sure that everything is correct, even if it means reading the same document 20 times. Taureans appreciate when their hard work is noticed-bonuses, paychecks, and benefits mean a lot to them-and they'll drive a hard bargain to ensure that they get what they're worth. The Bull loves material goods, but their purchases aren't showing off. To a Taurus, luxurious accessories are a consistent reminder of their hard work and effort.
Awakening the Inner Taurus Bull
Every Taurus has an inner Bull-a "get it done at all costs" creature-inside of them. When a Taurus' energy seems to be flagging, it's a safe bet that they're out of touch with that element of themselves. Here's how to find it and get back on track:
Go outside. Stepping onto the earth without shoes will anchor a Taurus like nothing else.
Set up a schedule. Bulls love dominating their to-do lists. Checking off boxes can help a Taurus realize just how much they've gotten done.
Get physical with a partner. Taurus thrives on skin-on-skin contact, so arousal and orgasm are sometimes exactly what they need to get back on track after a rough patch.
Hear a pep talk. Taureans won't toot their own horn, but they won't mind if their friends do it for them. Hearing how much they've accomplished and how much they mean to people reminds Taurus of their important place in the world.
All of the above strategies are especially powerful in a month that manifests a full moon in Taurus!
