People born under this sign tend to understand that a slow and steady approach is often a better route to success and aren’t afraid to put in the commitment needed to see things through. While this is a greatly beneficial trait it can make them come across to others as stubborn and inflexible or they may become reluctant to let something go even if this is the best course to take.
Those born under this sign tend to prefer routine and organised lives and will always have a good idea of what they need to or will be doing on any given day. They may wake up, eat, sleep and participate in activities at the same time every day, perhaps by keeping lists or using reminder apps. Taureans can take a long time to adapt to changes such as moving house or changing jobs so may try to avoid these wherever possible.
