Chinese Astrology describes the character of the Horse as one of reliability, intelligence, adaptability and loyalty. People born in the astrological Year of the Horse are expected to acquire some of these fine characteristics. When these traits are added to the Western Astrology sign of Taurus the Bull it introduces a great ability to understand and reason. A Taurus Horse personality is believed to be a good mixture of the Bull’s realistic and predictable nature and the Horse’s imaginative intellect and versatility. This makes the Taurus Horse individual fairly moderate in his all of his or her thinking, actions and mannerisms.
Taurus Horse Traits
This combined set of admirable characteristics that the Taurus Horse possesses arm them with great life skills. They are able to express themselves articulately, assess things carefully and make sound judgments. Their fine balance of smart and steady with a touch of imagination allows them to not miss opportunities. A Taurus Horse enjoys interacting with others and their moderation helps them easily get along with most other people. At work they quite like challenges and are not afraid of a little responsibility. Their reasonableness and considerate manner lets them direct or supervise others without being overbearing.
A Taurus Horse is quite ambitious but this is not necessarily in a financial sense. They often have aspirations to do other things that do not involve making money. These individuals usually believe that their are much more important considerations in life goals than monetary gain. The Taurus Horse is usually family-orientated and likes to build firm foundations where he can feel secure. These people tend to like to travel and enjoy the freedom of going somewhere different, however they are always glad to be back home. They greatly appreciate the warmth and comforting feeling of the company of family and familiarity. If working or studying far away from home these Taurus people will almost always return as soon as they are able to.
As the Taurus Horse loves their family home so much, it can take a considerable time before they contemplate settling down with a partner. Personal relationships are one area in their life where their moderate approach does not seem to have such an effect. They do not find expressing emotions easy so seek soul mates who are patient and easy to communicate with. A Taurus Horse will generally only open up to those who he or she knows well and trusts implicitly. Once they do reveal their inner feelings these personalities are very loving and surprisingly passionate.
Amid his tendency to be a little undemonstrative the Taurus Horse may have another weakness to his personality. It is the inclination to be obstinate but not all Taurus Horse’s are prone to this. If this negative trait is present it can sometimes appear at times when these people are angry, upset, afraid, tired or stressed. This proneness to be extremely stubborn at times is possibly the influence of the strong determination from both strong animal presences in this particular astrology combination. Its appearance is for the most part infrequent and short lived.
Taurus Horse Compatibility (Love & Friendship)
When they do relax, this is one of the most enjoyable signs to spend time with. Taurus Horses are meant to be social. They are naturally great conversationalists, can make others feel at ease, and are excellent hosts. Their creative minds and deep interests in unusual subjects make them many people’s favorite guests at social gatherings. It’s really a shame that Taurus Horses choose to spend so little time truly engaging with other people. Once they’ve gotten lost in their work they can change dramatically into stubborn, irritable, hot-tempered, frustrated individuals with little patience for distractions. Close friends and family learn to live with this, but for others it can be off-putting.
Success in love is entirely up to the Taurus Horse. They have everything it takes to be successful - a natural charm, a deep connection to their passions, and a romantic sensibility. They fall in love fast and hard, and deeply desire to succeed in relationships as much as they do in their work. Relationships become challenged, though, by a Kangaroo’s stubborn need for success. Even though they see their work as a necessary path to supporting their family, they have a hard time realizing how much their obsessive working affects their relationships. Not only are they off in their own worlds most of the time, but they often also let stresses from one part of their lives affect the other. Trouble at work makes them moody, volatile, and difficult to be around at home. This creates more stress at home which they then find affects their work, creating a snowball effect that can quickly blow everything out of proportion. Taurus Horses need to find a balance within themselves if they ever want to achieve balance with someone else.
Taurus Horse Business (Career & Goals)
With their drive and determination a Taurus Horse can truly succeed at anything they choose to do. However, certain careers make for better fits than others. Taurus Horses are very independent. Whatever they do, they need to make sure that they are not unnecessarily slowed down or held back from doing what they know they need to do. Bureaucratic careers in government organizations or big businesses can easily stifle and frustrate the eager Taurus Horse, bringing out their famous temper that does not fare well for these types of careers.
Ironically, though they need freedom and independence, it is most healthy for Taurus Horses to work with other people. This helps keep them balanced and gives them a way to express themselves outwardly instead of bottling up their frustrations inside. Taurus Horses are naturally talented in marketing. Careers in advertising, public relations, and the like are among the best fits for this sign. Those who don’t enjoy these lines of work can always succeed in selling their individual services on a freelance basis - whatever their specific talents and focus may be.
