Taureans are warm, loving, gentle and charming most of the time. Motivated by self preservation, the Taurean is not a risk taker and weighs every decision carefully, in a slow and methodical manner. To more impulsive people, Taurus may appear a bore. Opinionated and obstinate, once a Taurean makes a decision, it is written in stone. Don’t expect radical thinking and innovative ideas here. Basically grounded, material people, Taureans prefer the known to the unknown, the tried to the new. They love the earth, comforting things, sense of ownership, and generally treat those they love as possessions.
