Fire Signs
Western Zodiac Chinese Zodiac

The builder of the Zodiac, Taurus is ruled by Venus, and its symbol is the bull. Those born of the Bull are known to be methodical, faithful, and tenacious. Gentleness, an abiding calm, and the patience of a saint are also characteristics, although these may mask a stubbornness that can be revealed during the course of an argument.

Overly careful and conservative in some cases, they also pride themselves on a job done thoroughly -- there is a tremendous work ethic present here - there is no one more dependable, loving and loyal than a Taurus. They also have great stamina; however, they can become very possessive!

Taureans also make really good cooks. With a fine aesthetic sense and stubborn will to have things its own way, Taurus invariably surrounds itself with material beauty -- be it artistic or natural. TAURUS is most compatible with: CANCER and PISCES

TAURUS represents the Throat in the Human body. Many of our best singers are Taurus, Bing Crosby, Barbara Striesand, Cher, Willie Nelson, Judy Collins and Billy Joel.

  Goat (Ram, Sheep) Elegant, shy, pessimistic, and highly accomplished. Initially they seem to be better than those of other zodiac years. This creative, esoteric Sign needs plenty of time alone in which to feed its Muse.

This Sign makes a great craftsperson or artisan, or perhaps a teacher of New Age studies -- any occupation that allows its mind the full range of freedom. Goats tend not to be very materialistic in general, finding plenty of riches in their own imagination. However, especially when in love, the Goat can be quite a lavish gift-giver.

These high-strung creatures need to feel loved and admired lest they start worrying incessantly - they need plenty of love, support and open reassurance from their lovers. If a relationship is marked by conflict, they will often pull away -- either physically or simply by retreating into the safe haven of its imagination.

Goats are very religious and very passionate in what they believe. They are also wise and gentle. Compatible with: Rabbits, Pigs, and Horses.

***Note 2003 is the Year of the Goat!!!
