Taurus Gifts: Serious and Pragmatic

Taurus has a reputation for being a serious astrological sign (along with Virgo and Capricorn), but serious doesn't mean boring. In fact, Taurus enjoys building careers that are sturdy, solid and permanent. Taurus professions are ones that are built to last.

One of Taurus's finest gifts is the ability to take an inspirational idea and transform it into a viable concrete plan. First born Aries comes up with the idea, but its second born Taurus that makes that plan a reality.

Speaking of making plans a reality; Taurus, think of yourself as a dream maker. Your inherent pragmatism allows you to clearly see the necessary steps that need to be taken in order to make an idea or dream a reality. This is no small feat! Let others come up with the ideas Taurus. You know that you're the one who can manifest them.

The Role of Venus

Many other signs may see pragmatism as boring, but that just means that they don't know you Taurus! Under the tutelage of Venus, your planetary ruler, Taurus professions tend to marry form and function, and then in turn, integrate those concepts with beauty and durability. The amazing part is that Taurus can accomplish this even within the confines of a realistic budget and a looming deadline. Amazing and brilliant, but certainly not boring!
