Element and Quality of Taurus
Taurus is a sign of the Earth element, and because of its association with the planet Earth, it is perhaps the earthiest of all signs of the zodiac. Earth is the element of practicality and stability – it is sensual and enjoys life in a physical body. Earth confers discipline and a desire for success, and can be somewhat conservative in nature. Taurus is a fixed sign, resistant to change but with a powerful ability to persevere despite all odds. Taurus can be stubborn, but they also possess great power when they are motivated.
