Your sign is that of earthy Taurus, the second sign of the zodiac, the sign characterized by endurance and sensuality. Taurus is also associated with material goods.  Venus , the planet of love and beauty, is your ruler, and makes you a very warm and faithful person. For the most part you are even-tempered and show a great capacity for affection, as well as an appreciation for beauty and art. You are loyal and reliable. You keep your promises. As the first of the three earth signs, you are realistic, patient, and persistent. You are the most grounded sign of the zodiac, preferring to put down roots and aiming for stability. Comfort, even luxury, is very precious to you. And indeed, you rule the second house, the sector of the horoscope that encompasses money and possessions. This house describes your value systems, including the value of oneself.

Your sign is a fixed sign, dear Taurus, meaning you enjoy responsibility and taking charge. However, you are not a doer - you are a delegator! Like every genuine Taurus, it may take you longer to get involved with something, but once you do, you don't want to stop. You are more passive than active, and prefer to have the world move around you while you sit still and direct.
Belonging to the fixed group and earth element Taureans have great stability, persuasiveness and downright stubbornness! Home lovers that make excellent coffee. Ruled by the planet Venus. Like the bull, you do not move unless there is something worth moving for. You like to keep a firm hand on your possessions and nothing makes you happier than a nice, secure material prosperity. The good things in life are what you crave, because you love to luxuriate in sensual delights.

Your strengths lie in your decision-making abilities; you don't make snap judgments or jump to conclusions. You engage in careful consideration, as hastiness and impulsive actions do not appear in your script. In your relationships, you are fully committed and faithful, and you seek harmony and inner peace.  But you too have a few weaknesses. One trap you may fall into is that of obstinacy and self-righteousness. Due to your firm beliefs, you are deaf to any kind of criticism. This inflexibility can cause you to resist change and procrastinate. You run the risk of becoming lazy, overindulgent, or convinced of your own infallibility

Taurus has a stubborn streak, combined with a sturdy physique and tremendous physical stamina. Tenacious in getting what you want, your great patience can be the very key to your success. You need, however, to overcome a tendency to procrastinate and a certain difficulty with undesirable habits and behavioural patterns.

Ruled by Venus, planet of sensuality and beauty, you are considered physically attractive. Appreciative as you are, my dears, of good food and fine wines, you may yet avoid an expanding waistline... physical fitness and staying in shape having such a high priority with you. Since you enjoy presenting yourself in the best light, you simply delight in cosmetics and other beauty aids and, no slave to fashion, you select clothes that either show off your best points or are extremely comfortable. Physical comfort is paramount and you do so love the feeling of soft, luxurious materials.

Sociable, yet unobtrusive, you enjoy social occasions, especially in the company of friends, even though you can be rather rude and obnoxious when the mood takes you. This is no doubt due to your innate shyness. Some of you need to overcome a fixation with personal appearance and learn to grow old gracefully. On bad days you can be despicably lazy and take little or no interest in your physical appearance or manner of dress.

Taurus has materialistic, status-seeking tendencies. You take pains to hide it, but you can be unduly influenced by the powerful or wealthy. Although your practicality is often self-serving, you are pragmatic and can usually be relied upon for constructive suggestions that help others as much as yourself. The finer things in life must include art and music, for you are innately talented, with a pleasant, resonant voice. Beware of infections and injuries to your neck and throat and you are subject to earaches and infections.

 

Taurus Children

The Taurus child is resolute, practical, obstinate, and conservative. He or she is reliable and careful in speech and action. Taurus children can be known to hold back emotions and desires until provocation releases them. Taurus children who are taught to control their emotional outbursts can develop into sensitive, intuitive persons. The Taurus child loves beauty and harmony and loathes disorganization. Taurus children are also generous, kindhearted, trustworthy, and intensely strong willed. They love the good things in life but are rarely overly dramatic or charismatic. A Taurus child will be gifted with many talents. He or she will be good at executive work and being in charge of others as well as with things to do with the earth, such as real estate, mining, and oil fields. Taurus is often competent in positions of trust and confidence, such as a doctor, nurse, or judge. Even though practicality is a strong part of the Taurus makeup, Taurus can also make wonderful artists, especially in the fields of architecture, interior design, and textiles.

Taurus Women and their Zodiac Characteristics

The Bull could be considered the worker bee of the Zodiac, not the image you might have of this hard-charging sort. Taurus is reliable and loyal, easy to get along with and a good team player. They're also practical and grounded, as befits an Earth Sign. If you want things to get done, call the Bull. You may have to ring them two or three times, though, since they can be a bit lazy to get going, but once they're up and running, look out! There's a focus and single-mindedness of purpose there that can come in plenty handy. Taureans can be notoriously strong-willed, so it's a good idea for colleagues to lay down the law first -- the Bull will follow their lead and work hard. So hard, in fact, that Taureans are often the pillar of a company, the community and certainly their family. Hey, that's what those strong shoulders are for! Organization is also something that is best placed in the Bull's capable hands.

While the Bull can do well in business, an artistic streak is also present. More apparent, though, can be the Bull's f
requent stubborn streaks, which can defeat a lot of hard work. And that temper! It's mercifully swift, so duck while plates are flying, and you'll be fine. If Taureans can keep their focus on the steady accumulation of material goods and an occasional dose of earthy, sensual pleasures, life will be grand.  The Taurus office is likely to be a comfy, cozy den, a place where guests will feel welcome and the Bull can hold court. Driving around between appointments is likely to be done in a sport utility vehicle, with ski racks on top as a sign of practicality and success. If it's a lunch date you crave, the Bull can just as easily take you for a BLT or filet mignon -- it all depends on your value to this discerning member of the Zodiac.  Taureans are well suited as bankers, artists, accountants, musicians, gardeners or any profession that requires patience and determination.

Taurus is also associated with  any occupation that involves the shrewd acquisition of land, investments, or goods which inclusive of banking, farming, floristry, interior design, architecture, food, engineering, construction, general medical practice, executive secretarial positions, stable occupations in established institutions.

Taurus, the feminine (yin) sheath of Venus, is attractive and magnetic. Taureans have personal magnetism and are able to draw others into their circle, rather than actively seeking them out. In other words, while they are very fond of members of the opposite sex, they prefer to be courted. A tender meeting of like minds over a delicious repast, combined with fine wine and luscious music, in a secure environment where nothing unexpected is likely to occur is  Taurus  ideal scenario for seduction. Taurus, however, is straight-forward and down-to-earth in sexual matters. A no-nonsense approach is favoured and too much verbalising, or complex fantasising is not really Taurus's thing. Music or other forms of sensual, non-verbal expression will strike a chord in the Taurean nature. Taurus sexuality is strong and deep, though not necessarily electric on the surface. Sensual, but conservative, Taureans prefer a cosy courtship, replete with good food and wine in copious quantities. Ruled by Venus, the goddess of beauty and desire, Taureans are strikingly attractive, in a somewhat statuesque way. Taureans sensuality and readiness to please make them a desirable partner for one who seeks a solid, secure and long-lasting relationship. Taurus  have a marked fondness for all pleasures of the senses, but, of course, do not give themselvesf lightly to mere passing fancies. This reflects their great strength and loyalty. Elegant, erotic Venus stimulates their earthy appetites, which can be voracious when awakened. Indeed, Taurus sexuality is more readily aroused when your appetite for edibles has been assuaged.


Faithful friends (and dedicated enemies), Taureans prefer long-lasting relationships and seek to build strong alliances, although they can be misled by their sensual natures, especially when young. Taurus however will grow more stable and discriminating as time goes on, for the Taurean character is naturally inclined to permanence and the satisfaction of a job well done. Like the Bull, Taurus is slow to anger, then briefly furious before returning to a state of preferred placidity. A lot happens below the surface with Taurus. Friends can be quite surprised by sudden changes of heart which have actually been bubbling down there for longer than anyone could have suspected! Admirers should be aware that having opened the floodgates of passion, Taurus can be both insatiable and possessive and Taurean emotions will be trifled with at your peril. The great side of this is that Taurus is intensely loyal and makes a caring, life-long partner, who will seek to provide for and satisfy your needs.

 

Behavior When In Love

The typical Taurus:
  • is devoted and steadfast
  • settles quickly into a stable affair
  • loves glamour
  • is extremely vulnerable to people who accept his or her affection but only want a flirtation
  • will never forgive a betrayal
  • the male is generally the strong silent type
  • the female is usually an earth woman/Venus

Expectations

The typical Taurus expects:
  • his woman to be very feminine
  • her man to be all male
  • a promise to be kept and never broken
  • a wholesome, natural approach to physical love
  • to be pampered
  • to wait for a commitment to be made

 

Taurus and Sex

 When a typical Taurus makes love it is the most physical and natural pleasure in the whole world. Sex is never a power game for a Taurean; it is something very natural to be enjoyed. Taureans, especially females, are sometimes embarrassed about their bodies if they feel they are being criticized. On the whole, Taurus regards nudity as natural and wholesome.

 

Taurus and Partner

The person who contemplates becoming the marriage or business partner of a typical Taurus must realize that Taurus will expect absolute loyalty through thick and thin and will probably want to establish a routine way of doing things his or her way. Given this, the person who partners Taurus can expect honest devotion, a long-term relationship, and a partner who can keep his or her head in any emergency.
 

Taurus Man As A Partner

He will want a partner who enjoys his way of doing things. The partner should be prepared to take the responsibility for good public relations while Taurus works quietly away ensuring that money and power come their way. The Taurean husband wants a marriage partner whom he can possess, body, soul and dowry. He needs a woman who enjoys physical love, since to Taureans there is no division between love, sex, and marriage.

Taurus Woman As A Partner

She will want a partner who is attentive and appreciative. Common sense is essential in any partner of a Taurus. She, like her male counterpart, will look for a business partner who will bring prestige to the business. The Taurean wife wants to be given gifts and treated with gentleness. She does not want to be patronized, but she does want her man to remember her birthday and other anniversaries. She needs a husband who will let her organize at least a part of his life and who will never give her cause for jealousy.
 

Polar Sign

Scorpio is the complementary opposite sign to Taurus. Although relations between Taurus and Scorpio can be difficult because they are both stubborn signs, Scorpio can show Taurus how to gain insight into the needs and motives of other people, and thus also into his or her own life. In this way, Taurus can use his or her natural sensitivity to help in the service of others.

Taurus and Friends

 In general Taurus likes a friend who is reliable, unchanging, and not given to sudden excitement or changes of plans. Taureans are very warm and affectionate toward their friends. They enjoy friendship with people who have good taste and with whom they can enjoy a quiet conversation or a concert or a football game.
They will enjoy people who have strength of character and qualities of endurance like their own. Toward such friends, Taurus will always be gentle, kind, loving, and totally trustworthy. However, on the negative aspect, Taurus can be very jealous of any attention given to someone else.  Taurus does not like signs of weakness, physical or emotional, and can be quite direct about them.

In 1853, on a tour with the Hungarian violinist Reményi, he met Joseph Joachim and Liszt; Joachim, who became a lifelong friend, encouraged him to meet Schumann. Brahms's artistic kinship with Robert Schumann and his profound romantic passion (later mellowing to veneration) for Clara Schumann, 14 years his elder, never left him. After a time in Düsseldorf he worked in Detmold, settling in Hamburg in 1859 to direct a women's chorus. Though well known as a pianist he had trouble finding recognition as a composer, largely owing to his outspoken opposition – borne out in his D minor Piano Concerto op.15 – to the aesthetic principles of Liszt and the New German School. But his hopes for an official conducting post in Hamburg (never fulfilled) were strengthened by growing appreciation of his creative efforts, especially the two orchestral serenades, the Handel Variations for piano and the early piano quartets. He finally won a position of influence in 1863-4, as director of the Vienna Singakademie, concentrating on historical and modern a cappella works. Around this time he met Wagner, but their opposed stances precluded anything like friendship. Besides giving concerts of his own music, he made tours throughout northern and central Europe and began teaching the piano. He settled permanently in Vienna in 1868.

Florence Nightingale

Name: Florence Nightingale
Birth Date: May 12, 1820
Place of Birth: Detroit, Michigan, United States
Nationality: American
Occupations: nurse

 Florence Nightingale was born into a rich, upper-class well-connected English family at the Villa Colombaia, Florence, Grand Duchy of Tuscany, and was named after the city of her birth.[2]Her parents were William Edward Nightingale (1794–1875) and Frances "Fanny" Nightingale née Smith (1789–1880). William Nightingale was born William Edward Shore. His mother Mary née Evans was the niece of one Peter Nightingale, under the terms of whose will William Shore not only inherited his estate Lea Hurst in Derbyshire, but also assumed the name and arms of Nightingale. Fanny's father (Florence's maternal grandfather) was the abolitionist Will Smith. Inspired by what she took as a Christian divine calling, experienced first in 1837 at Embley Park and later throughout her life, Nightingale committed herself to nursing. This demonstrated a passion on her part, and also a rebellion against the expected role for a woman of her status, which was to become a wife and mother. In those days, nursing was a career with a poor reputation, filled mostly by poorer women, "hangers-on" who followed the armies. In fact, nurses were equally likely to function as cooks. Nightingale announced her decision to enter nursing in 1845 evoking intense anger and distress from her family particularly her mother.Florence Nightingale's most famous contribution came during the Crimean War, which became her central focus when reports began to filter back to Britain about the horrific conditions for the wounded. During the Crimean campaign Florence Nightingale gained the nickname "The Lady with the Lamp", deriving from a phrase in a report in The Times:
She is a ‘ministering angel’ without any exaggeration in these hospitals, and as her slender form glides quietly along each corridor, every poor fellow's face softens with gratitude at the sight of her. When all the medical officers have retired for the night and silence and darkness have settled down upon those miles of prostrate sick, she may be observed alone, with a little lamp in her hand, making her solitary rounds.[5]

William Shakespeare

Name: William Wordsworth
Birth Date: April 23,1564
Death Date: April 23, 1616
Place of Birth: Cookermouth, Cumberland, England
Place of Death: England
Nationality: English
Occupations: poet and writer 

William Shakespeare (baptised 26 April 1564 – 23 April 1616)[a] was an English poet and playwright, now widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's preeminent dramatist.[1][2] He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon" (or simply "The Bard"). His surviving works consist of 38 plays,154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright. Shakespeare was born and raised in Stratford-upon-Avon. William Shakespeare was indeed lucky to survive to adulthood in sixteenth-century England. Waves of the plague swept across the countryside, and pestilence ravaged Stratford during the hot summer months. Mary and John Shakespeare became parents for the first time in September of 1558, when their daughter Joan was born. Nothing is known of Joan Shakespeare except for the fact that she was baptized in Stratford on September 15, and succumbed to the plague shortly after. Their second child, Margaret, was born in 1562 and was baptized on December 2. She died one year later. The Shakespeares' fourth child, Gilbert, was baptized on October 13, 1566, at Holy Trinity. It is likely that John Shakespeare named his second son after his friend and neighbor on Henley Street, Gilbert Bradley, a glover and the burgess of Stratford for a time. Records show that Gilbert Shakespeare survived the plague and reached adulthood, becoming a haberdasher, working in London as of 1597, and spending much of his time back in Stratford. At the age of 18 he married Anne Hathaway, who bore him three children: Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith. Between 1585 and 1592 he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part-owner of the playing company the Lord Chamberlain's Men, later known as the King's Men. He appears to have retired to Stratford around 1613, where he died three years later.
