As an earth sign, Tauruses are focused on being rooted in everything they do. They take pleasure in both the natural beauty of the world and material possessions which allows them to live the most beautiful and rewarding life possible. Tauruses are very true to themselves and hate dishonesty. They are responsible individuals who are some of the most loyal throughout the zodiac. These traits lineup to create a devoted person who will never waver in both loyalty and love. However, the Taurus is not without their weaknesses, as with all signs they have traits that could ultimately bring them to their destruction. Tauruses are often stubborn and unwilling to listen to other views. Being so grounded has its limitations, they are possessive with their beautiful possessions which can also extend to people and are uncompromising when dealing with situations that don’t align with their views.
