The Snake in Chinese Astrology is thought to represent an intelligent, intuitive and elegant personality. Taurus in Western Astrology is represented by the Bull and these individuals are believed to be calm, practical and dependable. The mix of Snake and Bull in a Taurus Snake works well and creates responsive and reliable personalities. They are immensely receptive to the world around them and to the needs and feelings of others. A Taurus Snake usually has a high level of perception and plenty of patience. They are generally kind and considerate and fairly open in displaying their emotions.
Taurus Snake Traits
The Taurus Snake as a rule is hardworking and thorough, he will take his time with tasks but they will be perfectly completed. These characters are very conscientious, adaptable and accommodating and tend to enjoy working with likeminded people. Their interest in new ideas makes a Taurus Snake rather interesting to converse with. These are not particularly sociable or outgoing individuals but they do love to chat. They often prefer a couple of really close friends to lots of casual ones. In friendships they will be supportive and can be relied upon to not discuss your business with anyone else.
A Taurus Snake is often quite intellectual and their receptive natures make them inquisitive too. They love learning and will often use some of their free time to improve their knowledge or skills. As they are also patient and understanding many of these personalities make good teachers or managers. They take pleasure in sharing information and explaining things to others. At home the Taurus Snake usually expresses his or her tasteful side and will display it in their choice of decor. They enjoy making things for their living environment and can be rather creative as well as realistic in their planning. These people also have a love of nature and can be keen on gardening. They are also often fascinated by animals and will like and possibly keep pets.
As the Taurus Snake is so receptive and alert he or she is also very attentive in personal relationships. These personalities are often excellent at reading body language and so it is extremely rare for them to not recognize a partner’s mood. They can be wonderfully warm and affectionate and brilliant at saying the right things to lighten the atmosphere. The Taurus Snake tends to have a firm grip on his or her emotions but can suffer from a little insecurity. They need soul mates who will be capable of boosting their confidence when they are feeling self conscious.
Weaknesses in a Taurus Snake personality are focused on their insecurities, most likely due to their over receptiveness. As they are such experts at deciphering other peoples probable thoughts it can sometimes make them a little too conscious of themselves. They can occasionally be filled with self doubt and need a bit of reassurance from family, friends or partners. As they mature most Taurus Snake’s learn to cope with this weak spot in their personalities, they appear to grow more confident with age.
Taurus Snake Compatibility (Love & Friendship)
Though they have a reputation for being sullen, evasive, and even moody, Taurus Snakes are actually quite social by nature. They prefer a small, close, consistent group of friends to having a wide variety of acquaintances. With close friends they will let their guard down and will share their innermost feelings, which they typically bottle up, and on a good day can be as charming, funny, and giving as anyone. Their idea of giving is more likely to be in the form of introspective, emotional support rather than the giving of money or material possessions - for everything dollar they give away is seen by them as taking them one step further away from security.
When they do have to enter unfamiliar social situations, Taurus Snakes seem surprisingly at ease. In reality, they are observing, evaluating, and reacting to their new acquaintance, maintaining a neutral politeness and generally friendliness until they have decided whether or not to share elements of their true selves with this stranger. This goes for casual social situations as well as dating. Leaving themselves open for rejection is anathema for a Taurus Snake, and violates their innermost need to feel comfortable and secure. This makes finding a partner a slow and challenging task for this reserved sign.
When they do fall in love, though, Taurus Snakes are true companions. Like their animal namesake, Taurus Snakes mate for life, and will defend their family and closest friends with surprising ferocity. A Taurus Snake may let you look at their territory, but they will never let you take it without a fight. The true duality of this sign comes through in love. Few things can distract them from their keen focus on their future goals, but this is one of those few. Once you have partnered up with a Taurus Snake, they consider you a part of their plans for the future, and can even be a bit possessive over this relationship.
Taurus Snake Business (Career & Goals)
Careers are where the Taurus Snakes focus most of their attention - for this is the key to achieving the “permanent security” that they believe they need to be at peace. Taurus Snakes are skilled in analyzing situations, which makes for success in analytical careers. Analysts, evaluators, assessors, financial advisers, and subject matter experts are all well within the natural ability of this sign. The whether or not these careers will fulfill their innermost needs depends on how well they fit the Taurus Snake’s own vision of his or her future.
Taurus Snakes prefer working alone or in familiar groups. They hate change and the unknown, which means careers in customer service, retail, or sales are all bad fits for this sign. What few would guess is that Taurus Snakes have a strong passion for art, music, and creativity in general. Taurus Snakes are big dreamers who often feel that they have to choose between their goal of financial security and their true passions, creating a lifelong conflict to find their true selves. The ultimate career for a Taurus Snake is one where they can be creative, free-thinkers but also somehow ensure a secure livelihood. Obviously, this is extremely difficult to pull off, but if anyone can figure out a way to do it, the ever-persistent Taurus Snake is the one who will.
