Does my Zodiac sign fit me?
I've never been an expert when it comes to zodiac signs and what they mean, but I did know that, with my birthday on May 17th, I'm a Taurus. And I did know that the Taurus is a bull and stubborn. That's it. That's all the knowledge I had, so I looked it up to learn more.
I ended up consulting a website with the web address of: https://www.astrology-zodiac-signs.com/zodiac-signs/taurus/ and learned the following (pulled directly from the website):
Color: Green, Pink
Day: Friday, Monday
Greatest Overall Compatibility: Scorpio and Cancer
Lucky Numbers: 2, 6, 9, 12, 24
Date range: April 20 - May 20
Strengths: Reliable, patient, practical, devoted, responsible, stable
Weaknesses: Stubborn, possessive, uncompromising
Taurus likes: Gardening, cooking, music, romance, high quality clothes, working with hands
Taurus dislikes: Sudden changes, complications, insecurity of any kind, synthetic fabrics
There was more explanation to it, but I think the above just about sums it up. Honestly, I feel like only part of this fits me. I would classify my element as air more then Earth and I'm not a huge fan of green or pink for me (though green is my son's favorite color and pink is one of my oldest daughter's favorite color). I do like Monday and Fridays but I prefer the weekends because that's when my whole family is off. My husband is a Libra, not a scorpio or cancer. He's and I think he's the most perfect match there is for me. My lucky numbers are none of those listed above...but my birthday does fall between April 20th and May 20th (being May 17th)!
And then there's strengths. I try to be reliable and responsible and think I've finally made it and have been happily believing that for years, but I also feel as if there's always room for improvement. I am devoted, loyal and stubborn, however, but I wouldn't say I'm uncompromising and not many of the likes listed really fits me, though I do like music and my favorite genre is romantic comedy. I guess you could say I like to work with my hands if you count writing and reading as working with you hands, however I doubt that those qualify.
So, basically, I think the description of a Taurus is about half right when it comes to me, which I guess isn't horrible odds! What about you? What's your zodiac sign and does it fit you? Let us know in the comments!
