Collapsing old discussions (pre 2010)

General[edit]

How do you define compatibility? Isn't that something anyone can have, instead of just certain few? Slowish guitar (talk) 15:49, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Compatibility section needs to go or be improved[edit]

Please see discussion on Aries Talk page Robert Currey talk 17:02, 13 July 2011 (UTC) [re-edited link Robert Currey talk 17:05, 13 July 2011 (UTC)]

Notable People from History born when the Sun was in Taurus[edit]

Please see the discussion on the Aries talk page regarding the suggestion that the list of notable persons should only include historical names (no living persons) and should not extend beyond 20 names. Currently the Taurean list has 17 entries:

Charlotte Brontë, Catherine the Great, Oliver Cromwell, Henry Fonda, Sigmund Freud, Adolf Hitler, Saddam Hussein, Lenin, Daphne du Maurier, Karl Marx, Florence Nightingale, Eva Peron, Bertrand Russell, William Shakespeare, Peter Tchaikovsky, Leonardo da Vinci, and Orson Welles.

Please use this section to propose additions or amendments to the main article content. -- Zac Δ talk! 13:26, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

Leonardo da Vinci - his name was removed with the edit summary: "da Vinci is clearly not Taurus and needs to be exluded from the list". I've restored it. The dates given for da Vinci on this site are using Old Style dates (have added notations to that effect in the da Vinci article). The reported 15th April equates to 23rd April by modern reckoning. Da Vinci's horoscope, with source info about his time of birth are published by Astro databank: http://www.astro.com/astro-databank/Da_Vinci,_Leonardo. (One reason why it is better to discuss proposed edits to this list prior to publication).

How about Harry S. Truman, born May 8, 1884 Gregorian, died Dec. 26, 1972? It'd be nice to have some democratically-elected Taurean leaders to offset some of the dictators. Msramming (talk) 02:59, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

Makes sense - I've added that so the list now has 18 entries. Thanks, -- Zac Δ talk! 04:23, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

Table[edit]

Can anyone fix the size of the Definitions table so it's a smaller width, it gets in front of the writing under the right-side sign and planet associations(more like the table on Aries, Gemini, i also noticed this to happen on a few other signs). 95.180.84.110 (talk) 16:01, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

Body part[edit]

The associated body part for Taurus should be the neck and shoulders, not genitalia.

Redirection of Western Zodiac signs[edit]

On 22 October 2012 the contents of the articles for the individual signs of the western zodiac (Pisces (astrology) etc.) were removed and replaced with redirects to Astrological sign#Western zodiac signs. These edits were made by User:Dominus Vobisdu with the edit summary: Unsourced and unsourceable cruft. No justification for stand-alone article. This did not seem to follow a community discussion.

Following concerns raised at the Reference Desk I will, after posting this, restore the articles to the form they were in immediately before their redirection. At least some of the articles seem to have been significantly reduced in size also prior to this redirection, however I have not reverted these changes.

Because I am sure editors may wish to discuss this (perhaps to reinstate the redirects, or make other changes to these articles), however a discussion spread among the talk pages twelve articles in question would be too dissipated, I suggest Talk:Astrological_sign#Redirection_of_Western_Zodiac_signs as a centralised discussion location. An editor with more experience than I in Wikipedia policies may wish to move this discussion to a better location. LukeSurl t c 15:19, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
