Zodiac Series: Aries and Taurus


Lexi Day, Digital Media Editor

Do you have a friend that is confident, optimistic, impatient and often moody? Or maybe they’re responsible, patient, and stubborn. If they’re anything like the first description, chances are your friend is an Aries. If they fit the second one, they might be a Taurus. Aries and Taurus are the first of 12 Zodiac signs.

Each Zodiac sign is given based on when the person was born. Aries falls between March 21st and April 19th. Aries, ruled by the planet Mars, is a very determined and straightforward personality. They are hardworking and often fall into leadership when working in a group. They handle stress and pressure with a clear head and can solve problems quickly and creatively.

When it comes to Aries’ relationship with family and friends, they can have a hard time forming strong, long-lasting relationships with others. In their family life, they have to be given freedom to be their own selves. Raising an Aries child requires lots of love and patience. If they feel they’re not getting that, they will not form a close relationship with their family and will only pull away further as they get older.

Taurus signs are born between April 20th and May 20th. Their ruling planet is Venus, giving these individuals a personality that appreciates beauty, creativity, and consistency in their lives. These traits can make people of this sign good at cooking, gardening, and art. As an employee, they are bound to stick with projects for as long as it takes to complete them.

In any relationship, a Taurus will be loyal and helpful. It may take them a while to trust someone, but once they do they’ll do anything to keep the relationship strong and healthy. They love being around family and especially enjoy hosting family gatherings.

Both of these signs are self-confident and motivated, but beyond that they are very different and unique. Each zodiac sign has its own personality, and these two are a couple of really fun signs.
