HOROSCOPE

The elemental pair of the Taurus is Earth and of all the zodiac signs, you have the only fixed connection with Earth. Your special relationship with Earth makes you as stubborn and stable as a 2 ton bolder. It is this quality that makes you reliable and grounded. Embracing Earth’s prudent qualities will allow you to work towards realistic goals, but this quality can become detrimental if you adopt an overly cautious attitude. Many valuable life experiences can be missed as a result of a conservative nature.
