The Taurus Star Sign is the second in the Zodiac. Of all the Star Signs of the Zodiac Taureans are the most sensuous and their sense of touch is heightened.
The Taurus Star Sign is represented by the Bull and comes under the influence of the planet Venus. The planet Venus governs love and beauty, friendships and creativity.
The Taurus Star Sign is from the element of earth which relates to practicality and groundedness. Because of this Taurusans are very practical and work hard to achieve all they want in life. And because of the influence of Venus they seek comfort and beauty in everything.
Each Star Sign of the Zodiac can be divided into three subsections called Decans.
Each Decan roughly corresponds to 10 degrees or 10 days of the Star Signs time period. Decans can provide a more detailed account of an individual's personality traits and character and reveal how people born under the same Star Sign can be very different.
The Taurus personality can differ according to which one of the Taurus Decans an individual is born under:
This is the first of the Taurus Decans and is ruled by the planet Venus.
