Is Taurus a well-balanced sign who analyses all perspective and angles?

We all know how the Libra archetype is well balanced personality who analyses the situations from different perspectives, different povs, and different angles, and ultimately comes up with a solution from this analyzing (especially in regards to making a compromise in relationship and negotiation issues where they try to make everyone happy by giving a 3rd option where everyone wins). This is especially true in competitive things where they for example choose a strategy in tennis that will easily cover weak points while giving a guaranteed victory after analyzing all what-ifs in the sports' complexity or making a war strategy based on analyzing a map for hours and from multiple experts' perspective instead of one's conceit that will create a balanced momentum that will cover up weaknesses and turn puny strength into devastating KO power.

However I notice recently many Taurus people act the same way despite how Taurus is infamous for being the most stubborn sign and the most fixed of personality. They too analyze things from outside of their personal perspective with a cool emotionally distant logic and try to often come up with a situation to accompany all those different points. Indeed as seen in businesses they analyze the multiple what-ifs and create security for weaknesses such as signing up for excellent insurance policies.

In addition they often try to compromise with people esp in negotiations to find a solution that will leave everyone walking from the meeting with a smile on their face.

However despite that Taurus gets the hack for lacking the balanced mindset of Libra. Why is this? I asked because not only does Taurus share the same ruling planet as Libra but they also are described as with similar traits to Libra such as easygoing.

Is Taurus more balanced than what pop astrology would lead us to believe (at least for a fixed sign and an earth sign)?

Re: Is Taurus a well-balanced sign who analyses all perspective and angles?

Based on the Taurus suns I know very well, I would partly agree. I agree that Taurus likes to be fair and impartial. That said, if a Taurus has made up their mind about something, it is nearly impossible to change their conclusion. I think they are less likely to argue than a Libra, and I think that's because they value peace even more than Libras, but they value consensus less. They'll listen, but they'll go on believing what they believe. I think this is different than a Libra, who can change their mind fairly easily if given a good argument for why they should.

Re: Is Taurus a well-balanced sign who analyses all perspective and angles?

A couple of snippets that might aid you along your observations. Traditionally speaking, Taurus is a cold and dry sign which means that it is melancholic. The melancholic temperament is the one that is what one would see as the most stereotypically intellectual - strong memory, cool logicality and a penchant for long and sustained cogitation on problems that they deem worth focusing on.

Your findings on the Taurian influenced in your life would be well met with the western siderealists. See here: http://www.solunars.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=101#p616

But then, none of this is pop astrology, is it?

Re: Is Taurus a well-balanced sign who analyses all perspective and angles?

I would seem that how a Taurus Sun analyzes would be greatly dependent upon the condition and placement of Mercury. For example, a Taurus Sun with Merc in Taurus would view things rather differently than one with Merc in Gem or Merc in Aries.

And quite honestly, I would also include the condition and placement Moon, to fill out the picture.

the characteristics of a Taurus individual will all depend on the aspects it receives...depends on whether the sign is afflicted or supported.

I agree. Just remember, Taurus is Fixed-Earth, very inclined to the material world, and values possessions.
In my own system, is its Regulator, and Jupiter its Motivator. It's also in-Service to Venus.
