According to tarot.com, Taurus people are both sensible and sense-driven. Their stubborn determination motivates hard work and leads to a lot of successes, but their inability to admit when they are wrong can cause rifts in personal and professional relationships. Indulgent by nature, the Taurus knows how to slow down and appreciate the finer things in life — but may need to be reminded that satisfaction can be found outside material possessions and luxury experiences.
In honor of Taurus season, here are a few celebrities who have lived up to the sign.
Adele was born May 5, 1988.
In her 2017 Grammy Awards acceptance speech, Adele embodied one of the strongest Taurus traits: an unwavering commitment to her point of view. The decorated singer spoke about her struggles as a mother and artist before turning her attention to her fellow nominee, Beyoncé. Adele said that while she was humbled by the recognition, she could not accept the award over Lemonade, which she called mesmerizing, soul-baring, and empowering--especially to black girls. In true Taurus fashion, she later turned her words into action and snapped the trophy in half to share with Bey. (x)
Asked about the speech after the fact, she reiterated her loyalty to her last living musical idol:
Mark Zuckerberg was born May 14, 1984.
Unlike the self-aware Adele, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg uses his Taurus determination to feed his Taurus greed. ONTD fav The Social Network showed how Mark built his megacorporation on the backs of his former friends, all while stubbornly refusing to admit that he crossed an ethical line by shoring up power and profits for himself.
Is there anything admirable about Mark? Well, patience is a (Taurus) virtue, and he managed to endure a 10-hour testimony before Congress made up of the kinds of questions your grandparents ask you about the online. He did do it while seated on a 4" thick cushion, but what do you expect? This sign craves physical comfort.
Cher was born May 20, 1946.
Though she just squeaked by on the last day of Taurus season, Cher still shows strong traits of the sign. She lives an inarguably luxurious life, taking full advantage of her career as an entertainer to adorn herself with vibrant colors, over-the-top silhouettes, and lots and lots of bling. She is unapologetic about who she is — sometimes to a fault. For example, Cher responded aggressively to a Native American woman's skepticism about Cher's alleged Cherokee ancestry (x):
When others called her out on her attitude, she did not apologize; instead, she insisted that she would not have been dumb enough to say that had she known the woman was Native herself. (x)

She continued (x), bringing up earlier criticisms of her old song's racism:

Though she clearly agreed that her critics had a point (given she planned to stop performing the song in the future), she held her apology hostage because of their tone. (x)

A few hours later, presumably after she let her Taurus temper cool, she did apologize to those to whom she caused "any" pain. (x)
