Taurus doesn't often take the traditional road. Though they're capable of rising to great heights, many insist on doing things their own way, and usually end up changing things for the better.
Singer Adele found a record contract when a friend posted her demo on MySpace. Since then, she's achieved enormous success while remaining her own woman, refusing to be a certain way to suit others.
Likewise, fellow Taurus Miranda Cosgrove was home schooled by her parents in Los Angeles before being discovered as a singer at a local restaurant and rising to fame as an actress.
Lesson: Never tell a Taurus no!
