Chinese Astrology describes the character of the Horse as one of reliability, intelligence, adaptability and loyalty. People born in the astrological Year of the Horse are expected to acquire some of these fine characteristics. When these traits are added to the Western Astrology sign of Taurus the Bull, it introduces a great ability to understand and reason. A Taurus Horse personality is believed to be a good mixture of the Bull's realistic and predictable nature and the Horse's imaginative intellect and versatility. This makes the Taurus Horse individual fairly moderate in his all of his or her thinking, actions and mannerisms.
This combined set of admirable characteristics that the Taurus Horse possesses arms them with great life skills. They are able to express themselves articulately, assess things carefully, and make sound judgments. Their fine balance of smart and steady with a touch of imagination allows them to not miss opportunities. A Taurus Horse enjoys interacting with others, and their moderation helps them easily get along with most other people. At work they quite enjoy challenges, and are not afraid of a little responsibility. Their reasonableness and considerate manner let them direct or supervise others without being overbearing.
A Taurus Horse is quite ambitious, but this is not necessarily in a financial sense. They often have aspirations to do other things that do not involve making money. These individuals usually believe that there are much more important considerations in life than monetary gain. The Taurus Horse is usually family-oriented and likes to build firm foundations where he can feel secure. These people tend to like to travel and enjoy the freedom of going somewhere different; however, they are always glad to be back home. They greatly appreciate the warmth and comforting feeling of the company of family and familiarity. If working or studying far away from home, these Taurus people will almost always return as soon as they are able to.
As the Taurus Horse loves their family home so much, it can take a considerable time before they contemplate settling down with a partner. Personal relationships are one area in their life where their moderate approach does not seem to have such an effect. They do not find expressing emotions easy, and so seek soulmates who are patient and easy to communicate with. A Taurus Horse will generally only open up to those who he or she knows well and trusts implicitly. Once they do reveal their inner feelings these personalities are very loving and surprisingly passionate.
Amid his tendency to be a little undemonstrative, the Taurus Horse may have another weakness to his personality. This is the inclination to be obstinate, but not all Taurus Horses are prone to this. If this negative trait is present, it can sometimes appear at times when these people are angry, upset, afraid, tired or stressed. This proneness to be extremely stubborn at times is possibly the influence of the strong determination from both strong animal presences in this particular astrology combination. Its appearance is for the most part infrequent and short-lived.
