There are so many quotes and sayings about Taurus that it took me quite some time to choose my all-time favourites.
The house of Taurus in astrology is one that focuses on action, good looks, ambition and making things happen.
If there is anything that really sums up the Taurus personality traits and characteristics, it is all about stability, and stability, of course, is rooted in security.
A fully mature and developed Taurus is a very secure and stable person. There are no two ways about it. The problem is getting to that stage. This is really the challenge of all houses of the horoscope.
Whether you are an Aquarius, an Aries, a Capricorn, a Pisces and any other sign, you really have to work on getting to the most polished aspect of your astrological personality. This is what will make you a better romantic partner, this is what will make you a better parent, employee or business owner, and this is what really will make you a better person all around.
Here are some quotes and saying about Taurus that go to the heart of Taurus maturity.
Again, they all have aspects and shades of the key elements of stability and security.
“You Get Out What You Put In”
The typical Taurus may not be aware of this quote or might not particularly say it. However, this quote definitely applies to them. The Taurus is all about making things happen.
The Taurus is very ambitious. The great thing about this horoscope sign is that he or she in not unwilling to put in the work to make dreams come true. This is why it is not uncommon to see Taurus people at the highest levels of corporations, universities or any other organization.
They are willing to put in the hard work. This should not be a surprise; after all, the Taurus is symbolized by the bull. The bull is strong. The bull has a lot of power. The bull has a lot of strength.
With the proper direction, with the proper goals and the proper system, the bull can pretty much do anything.
The saying “you get out what you put in” definitely sums up the willingness and ability of the Taurus to put in the work needed to make his or her dream come true.
“You Cannot Square Zero”
The Taurus is very practical. Unlike the Virgo, which often lives in a very philosophically pure world, the Taurus deals with the world the way it is.
The Taurus is all about practicality. The Taurus understands that he or she did not create the world but merely inherited it. As a result, the Taurus is more than content to work with the way things are to make his or her dreams come true. One reality check that almost every Taurus gets is that you cannot square zero.
In other words, if you have nothing, even if you put in lots of energy into nothing, it will still remain nothing.
Taurus people are all about practical processes and practical systems. This is why they often get criticized for being conventional thinkers. They cannot seem to get out of the box.
The reality is that thinking out of the box is one thing, but trying to square zero is another. Too many people try to get so creative that they really are trying to square zero. In other word, they are trying to do something impossible.
The Taurus really sees through this and is more than happy to stay thinking within the box.
“You Cannot Eat Dreams and Hopes”
There are many signs of the horoscope that are very idealistic. These are men and women that married purely for love and end up in impoverished situations. These are you men who gave up their lives for a cause that is ultimately, tragically futile.
These are people that stick out their necks for causes that eventually end up being debunked by history. What do they all have in common? They all focused on dreams and hopes. They all focused on building a better world that really remains only in the world of fantasies and dreams.
The Taurus does not want to have anything to do with that. The Taurus is a typical earth sign. This is a bull with all four of its legs firmly planted on the earth. What this means is that the Taurus is focused on what exists now, what is real, what is practical now.
What is doable in the here and now. The Taurus is not like a super hippie Steve Jobs who is all about bringing things that do not exist into reality. The Taurus is a doer, not a thinker. This might strike many Taurus as insulting, but it is actually a compliment to them.
They look at things that are doable now and make the best of those happen. Of course, the world need dreamers.
The world needs idealists. However, balancing those people are people pretty much of the earth and who are very practical.
It is not uncommon for Taurus to say something to the effect you cannot eat dreams and hopes.
In other words, all the hopes and dreams that you may have will not put money on the table will not feed your kids; will not take care of your needs in the here and now. The Taurus’ clarion call is to focus on the here and now.
“I Will Believe It When I See It”
Another key saying about Taurus is “I’ll believe it when I see it”. The power to believe something that you cannot see is actually one of the most important power humans can ever attain to. Seriously. This is how the world really gets advanced.
If Steve Jobs did not visualize the truly immense creative power of the computer, we would not have all these amazing inventions.
If Tim Berners-lee did not envision a hypertext link linking to another document, we would not have the internet; we would not have the World Wide Web.
Our world is created and destroyed by ideas, and ideas make life go around. Unfortunately, the Taurus is not a denizen in the world of ideas. The Taurus is a doer; the Taurus is an implementer, but definitely not an innovator.
This is why the phrase, I’ll believe it when I see it, definitely applies to them. They are a constant prisoner of what is possible right now.
They cannot truly imagine what is out there. That is why the arts, for the most part, escape true earth Taurus. There are some Taurus that has water sign elements and air elements, those are artistic Taurus’s.
However, when it comes to true earth sign, Taurus signs, there is no shred of artistic or philosophical dimensions to them and they are more than happy with this.
The world is a happier place because they are true to themselves and they focus on what they are strong at. If you need a solid manager that can focus on what needs to happen now, you cannot go wrong with a Taurus.
“Even the biggest dreams are possible if you chop them up to small enough pieces”
All this discussion is not to say that the Taurus are just dreamers. That they do not have goals, that they do not have ambition. If anything, the word ambition, defines Taurus. What we are discussing is really the kind of dream or ambition.
They are not big vision people. They are not people who come up with things that do not exist yet. They are great with things that are already possible. They are great with making goals for situations that already exist.
How great are they? Even if you set up a seemingly impossible goal, the Taurus can make it happen. Why? Because they believe in the quote “Even the biggest dreams are possible if you chop them up to small enough Pisces”.
If you think about it, this is a very empowering quote, because it gives you a road map into making your dreams come true in the here and now.
If your goal is to make million dollars, the Taurus would walk back from the final objective of one million dollars and go through the process of making that money. He or she would create strategies.
From those strategies, there would be goals. A time line would be imposed on those goals and there would be a lot of testing whether the goals are being met and whether there are efficient ways t meet these goals. Put these all together and if the processes that are selected are correct and up to the job, the goal is taken care of. This is the reality. Unfortunately, most people do not like to believe this reality.
A lot of people think that it is impossible to own the biggest house, drive the best car, and make a million dollars, anything that is pie in the sky.
The Taurus, as long as it is in the realm of the possible and material, can make it happen because they think in terms of “planning grids”, and one key aspect of this planning grid is to chop up seemingly big or impossible dreams into small actionable Pisces, and impose a realistic deadline.
Sometimes you have to aim for the sun to hit the moon
As mentioned above, one of the best ways to describe a Taurus is that they are practical. They do not come up with goals that are so far out there that it would seem that they are impossible to implement in the here and now.
Instead, they focus on goals that can be achieved and they have strategies and systems to achieve those goals. One of these strategies is to aim for the sun so they can hit the moon.
The real target is the moon, but they know to take things to extreme enough levels so that they can actually achieve their objective.
These are just some of my favourite quotes and sayings about Taurus. There are so many out there that I am sure you have your own favourites too.
