The Sun in the sign of Taurus gives stability, practicality and a significant amount of patience. Taurus people can be also quite stubborn and very persistent in tastes and preferences.
People with Sun in Taurus tend to have a very pragmatic and materialistic approach towards life. They want to try everything practically, to see how a particular thing works, and they may not be especially happy to accept something very new or unusual.
Sun in Taurus energy will be at its best in situations where the tasks require dedication and perseverance.
Most people know their Sun Sign (a.k.a. Star Sign), which can be easily found from the date of birth using widely available tables of Sun Sign dates. However, in many cases, when the date of birth is close to the border between two signs, such general tables can be wrong. This is because the precise date and time of the Sun's entry into a Sign of the Zodiac differs quite substantially year after year. Even for the same year, the time of the Sun's entry into, say, Aries will be very different in New York and Tokyo.
As an example, everyone born on the 20th of January 1980 in San Francisco has Aquarius for their Sun Sign, because the Sun was already in the Sign of Aquarius then. However, most popular tables will tell you that January 20, 1980 still belongs to Capricorn.
I created this Sun Sign Calculator primarily for those who want to find their true Sun Sign. By entering your date and time of birth and specifying the time zone where you were born, you can make sure that the probability of an error is minimal. However, this calculator isn't perfect, in some cases it can make a mistake. See Sun Sign Calculator and its Limitations, as well as a description of a few alternatives.
