The Taurus long-term plan – and Taurus
does tend to plan long-term – focuses on homes, families
and children. Taurus adults take parenthood in their stride.
They create comfortable and secure backgrounds in which their
offspring can flourish and then set about planning their family
with characteristic enthusiasm and precision.
Taurus father is kind, affectionate and understanding,
and liable to spoil his children with expensive presents.
He has great patience and is quite prepared to spend long
hours helping the youngsters with their homework, more concerned
that they learn their lessons thoroughly than learn them fast.
He will tend to set them high standards and expect them to
share his own intense respect for property and belongings.
Taurus mother also gives her children plenty
of her time, attention and physical affection. She insists
that they keep themselves and their bedrooms clean and tidy.
She indulges their whims until they clash head-on with her
own. She does not take kindly to being disobeyed, crossed
or ignored by wilful or rebellious youngsters. Taurus parents
are pretty unflappable until a mutinous teenager tries to
take advantage of them. Only then will the full force of the
Bull’s temper explode.
Taurus adults tend towards a traditional
family lifestyle, with Sunday lunch an established practice.
They are conscientious about attending school functions and
sports days. Once the years of rebellion are over, Taurus
parents usually end up the best of friends with their children.
Unlike certain other Zodiac signs, they are well able to move
the relationship forward from that of protector to confidant.
