As a Taurus born on April 23rd, your determination and stability are amongst your most defining qualities. Once you have set a path for yourself, you stick to it with great determination. At times, you may become so dedicated to a task that you forget to address your most basic human needs. While others admire your determined nature, your efforts are to insure security and stability in life. There is little you value you more than a comfortable existence and you will not rest until you have acquired it.

Earth

The Taurus's elemental pair is Earth and in fact, you have the only fixed relationship with Earth of all the zodiac signs. Much like the firm ground you stand on, you are stable and powerful. This quality is a credit to your special relationship with Earth. As is the case with all Earth zodiac signs, your elemental influence also gives you practical and realistic sensibilities. You will do well in life by choosing to keep your feet on the ground and not in the clouds. Earth's influence is not without its challenges however, as you run the risk of being overly cautious.

Your sign's ruling planet is Venus and as you were born in the first Decan, or part, of the Taurus sign, you receive a double helping of Venus's power. Venus is the planet of harmony and subsequently, directly links to your sociability, values, cooperation and appreciation of beauty. More so than any of the Taurus Decans, your planetary influence makes you loving and materialistic. You enjoy to be loved, as well as showing love, which explains why you are such a "touchy feely" person. Ever faithful, you value security in relationships and are quite loyal. You require aesthetically pleasing surroundings and probably are known for your good taste. In love, find a partner that shares in your loyalty and appreciation of the finer things in life, as this will bring you the most happiness.

While choosing a career is one of life's great difficulties, you are fortunate enough to have abilities that can allow you to explore numerous career fields. Your hands on nature, could take you into art, especially sculpting. On the other hand, your social nature could lead you to people-based careers, such as teaching, social work or retail. You may find that your emotional awareness, could resonate in the hearts of readers, as was the case for William Shakespeare, who was also born on April 23rd. In whichever career you choose, do not be afraid to follow your values, not unlike Michael Moore, another of your celebrity birthday twins.
