Today's post celebrates Taurus as part of my Zodiac Dresser series, in which I explore the horoscope through outfits. This sign's combination of femininity, conservatism and materialism always makes me think of 1950s June Cleaver/ Betty Draper stereotypes. Many astrologers consider those born under Taurus to be the most attractive in the zodiac. Possible proof: born April 22, 1923, Bettie Page was a Taurus!

Strong and sexy,
Taurus stands firm in beliefs,
as lover and friend.

Taurus seems to have a strange duality in that it is represented by a bull and yet ruled by the planet Venus, named for the goddess of love and beauty. The field metaphor is what helps me personally make the connection.
Are any of you born under the sign of Taurus? Are you especially attractive, dependable or materialistic?
