What's My Sign?

Day 7: Your Zodiac Sign and If You Think It Fits Your Personality

There was a time I came into possession of a book of all the zodiac signs and their indicators on everything about life; marriage, love, friendships, positive and negative aspects of the sign, etc. I read it through on all the members of my family. I certainly saw traits in each person that were outlined, but I also saw fallacies in the descriptions. I also noticed that though 2 members of my family share a sign, they were not the same person.

This proved to me that the descriptions were general. Mostly, we latch onto the truths, the things that work for us, and quickly forget about the parts that don't, just as I was quick to refute the negative aspects of my own sign.

I am Taurus.

Taurean Woman
When you come across a Taurus female, the first thing you will notice about her is her undefeatable emotional strength. She is capable of handling the severest of problems, without shedding even a single tear. She has the infamous Taurus temper, but it is seldom displayed. Atleast not until the provocation is too much to digest. She is as feminine as any other female, without the unnecessary tantrums. A Taurus woman has no desire of dominating her husband. She will let him handle the reins, infact this is what she secretly desires. She is independent and has a mind of her own, but she does not want to dominate in the relationship. Taurean women do not see social status while making their friends. They want to be friends with people who do not hide their true nature and come across as they really are.

Their friends may be a little weird, but they will not be phonies or hypocrites. In return, she will expect them to stand by her when she needs them. A Taurean woman also gets jealous, but only if you exceed the limits of casual flirtation. Everything has a limit and this also does. It's better not to provoke her anger or you will be very sorry. (I usually never let things get this far.)

She is brainy, but not too much interested in intellectual subjects. She is practical in her thinking and does not feel the need to indulge in mental gymnastics. She is balanced in her approach and you will hardly see her in a restless disposition.

A Taurean girl hates anything artificial, be the flowers in her vase or the friends in her life. She has to feel the fragrance of real roses and the presence of real people. The beauty of Mother Nature especially pleases her. She loves to be amidst colorful surroundings, like gardens blooming with flowers. (This is why I'm in charge of the landscaping and why I love gazebos.) She is also very much interested in the art forms, like painting. She is a tomboy at heart and will enjoy many guy-things like horse riding, going on a roller coaster ride, fishing, etc.

Taurus women make excellent mothers, except for the fact that they cannot tolerate disobedience or defiance in kids. Laziness and carelessness also makes them angry. Otherwise, they will be more of a friend to their children than the typical mommies. (I desire to be the neighborhood mom, but that disobedience thing gets me every time.) A Taurus woman will also teach the kids how to be strong and will protect them from the big bad outside world. She never shirks from or whines about her responsibilities. Her man will be expected to do the same.

Here's where it begins to fall apart...

A Taurean female has good taste, so please be very careful before taking her out.
(I do? have you SEEN my wardrobe?? I guess no money has something to do with that. And when I was dating, the tomboy, practical side of me would not care what restaurant we went to.)

She is a very good cook herself and you will always be treated to excellent homemade food.
(I don't cook much. I can cook, but I'd rather not because I am a klutz. I drop things, spill things, go about things the long way. I can learn, but if there is someone else to do it for me, then I'll let them! Hubby says I make the best mashed potatoes. He is right. Also, I hate doing the dishes.)

She is a very good host and will be there to help her man in any and every way she can.
(I am not a good hostess..I need to be taught.)

A Taurean woman will care for you when you are ill, will back you in your new business venture and let you take over the control of the home. And, you will always be treated to a warm, cozy home when you come back from office!

(I do help my hubby and care for him and the kids when they are sick. But the warm cozy home, well, only if I remove myself from the computer to do it! *sheepish* I desire a warm cozy home, though. The visual organization nails me to the wall..)

Another one
: blessed with a charming and fascinating personality. Due to her magnetic personality, she becomes center of attraction in any party or event. Taurean woman typically has a rounded body with a thick neck and a broad forehead. She has a beautiful complexion, bright eyes, dark hair, broad shoulders and well-developed muscles. She has a nice, friendly way of communication. Taurean women are very careful about their appearance and need to have a strict diet to attain slimness. They are very careful about their appearance, be it hairstyle, beauty treatments or wearing attractive clothes.
(Again with the appearance! I guess I pay attention to it, but can't do anything about it.)

Negative Traits

Taurean women are too possessive about their belongings. They are too lazy and have a tendency to live life the easy way. They are somewhat stubborn and lose some good opportunities due to this nature. Being fond of food, they have a tendency to gain weight.


Here's where it falls short..

A career that requires social interaction is most suitable for the Taurean women. Since Taurean women lack in originality, they are not able to initiate great plans. They can follow the ideas of others. Due to great organization skills, Taurean women can effectively work in the world of politics and finance. They can be excellent artists, photographers and gardeners.

(Social interaction, yes, a must, but politics? no way. finance? not really. organized?? if controlled chaos is organized.. and artists, photographers, gardeners, yeah I can go for that, but those aren't really money makers are they? Guess I'm doomed to write.)

And yet another:
  • will complete tasks which others find boring or too difficult, amongst other aspects making her very sensible and reliable.
  • highly sentimental and emotional over loved ones, possessions and even routines. As might be surmised from all this, she really doesn’t like change, and can be very hard to persuade!
  • She dislikes and avoids risk, and tends to be gentle and tolerant of others, with a strong sense of honor and integrity. Practical and stable, she has an above average level of common sense.
  • Sensible with money, it’s likely she’s astutely tuned to financial matters and material gain, and may come across as frugal. In her defense, this isn’t due to greed, but because money equals security and stability in today’s world. It’s the ‘security and stability safety net’ which she values, and not wealth for its own sake. If she already has that security net in place then you’ll find she’s more than happy to share it with loved ones, even to the point of being overly generous.
  • likes gardening, which aligns to many of her core values - growing, nurturing, patience, practicality etc.
  • Her relative shyness in the bedroom also makes it that much more fun to try and corrupt her a little!
An here's the kicker, an explanation provided by this website for why we don't all fit the mold:

"There are many other planets which can have an equal or greater effect on their personality. Makes sense, as ultimately everyone is of course unique."

This one doesn't go into enough depth to have anything specific to nitpick, since they cover their claims with the statement above.

So, does it match? Yeah, but are there others that match as well? Sure. I had this discussion with Eloquent Mess, whereupon he was to guess my sign. He didn't get it right off. Then again, he is no expert.
