Taurus the Bull 100% Cotton T-shirt
Taurus the Bull! (20 April - 20 May)
Many people make oversimplified assumptions about people born under the Earth sign Taurus, but these folks are more complicated than they at first seem. It’s true, their “bullish” nature shines through in their tendencies towards stoic determination and down-to-earth practicality. Taurus people are dependable, hardworking and intelligent. They’re adept at making plans and sticking to them, but can get pretty put out if anything comes along to upset things. This level of dedication and persistence with attention to meticulous detail tends to allow them to rise to prominence in their chosen fields: they have the habits and the talents that make for big success. If you push the bull, the bull will most certainly push back, however, and they can be a little unbending when it comes to the authority-worship expected in modern society. If a Taurus person feels like someone is wrong or just a waste of time and energy, they don’t care who it is or how important they may be, they’ll speak out! Taurus tends to form strong opinions that can set into dogma if they’re not careful (and this may account for the fact that there are more than a few famous dictators as well as “giants” in systematic fields like philosophy, psychology and political science who were born under Taurus!) They also appreciate a well-ordered life and can be criticised by more volatile signs for being too resistant to change.
But lest we forget, the planet that rules Taurus is Venus, the goddess of Love. And that’s where Taureans’ more complicated qualities start to really shine through. Taurus folks may be known for working hard, but they know how to play and relax just as hard! They are warm-hearted, easy-going and generous towards the people in their lives whom they feel they can trust. While Earthy practicality could lead them towards an ambitious materialism, Venus tends to soften this into a flair for the comfortable, especially in their home sphere, which is sacred to them. They love the cozy and comfy things and have a keen appreciation of art and luxury. They can also be quite sensitive and take offence strongly to heart, so be gentle with these tender bulls! While their more obvious qualities might make them seem like impossible workaholics, it’s just not true. They can be so expert at chilling out, they can seem downright lazy at times! Their meticulous nature and focus allows them to create a beautiful, well-thought out world of comfort, and they know how to luxuriate in it.
Some famous Taureans (see if you can spot some similarities): George Takei, Adele, Cher, The Rock, Malcolm X, Queen Elizabeth II, Hirihito, Adolph Hitler, Mark Zuckerberg, Vladimir Lenin, Sigmund Freud, Saddam Hussein, Bono, Terry Pratchett, David Attenborough, George Lucas, Karl Marx, Immanuel Kant, Jim Jones, Harper Lee, Ella Fitzgerald, Orson Wells, Enya, Benjamin Spock, Liberace and Salvador Dali… to name only a few!
Anyway! Astrological t-shirts for the Taurus in your life are here (if they prefer a v-neck, those are here, too)! Designed in the colours traditionally associated with each of the signs, Taurus rules the front of this one in red-orange, deep indigo, deep warm olive and rich brown-mauve, presented together with the astrological symbol and a representation of the actual constellation in the sky! The back is printed with our red-orange triangle logo in a field of stars.

About the shirt itself:
- 150 g/m2 (4.5 oz per sq yd). 100% Cotton Preshrunk Ring Spun Jersey Knit (white contains polyester).
- Seamless double stitched 2cm neckband - not a floppy thing, it holds its shape well, even after constant wear and washing.
- Taped neck and shoulders for comfort and to keep it looking smart.
- Double-stitched sleeves and bottom hems for strength and durability. You can do anything in this shirt (well, don't wrestle alligators in it, maybe, but then that would tear just about any cotton t-shirt).
- Quarter-turned for a supremely neat finish. Seriously, these are well made.
These make great gifts.
