The ascendant/rising-sign, whether Taurus or otherwise, describes how we appear to be, whereas the sun sign describes who we really are in a wider sense than just appearance. The charactersitics of Taurus will somewhat modify and shape the characteristics of your sun sign.
For example, if you are an Aries with Taurus rising, then you will tend to be less impulsive than the typical Aries (for most Aries this would be a good thing). Or if you were a Pisces with Taurus rising, then you could well use the Taurean quality of endurance to your advantage. If you are an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn) with Taurus rising, then you have a double
double earth emphasis, which can (but does not necessarily) lead to extremes in words and/or actions.
With Taurus rising/ascendant, the common Taurean qualities that will flavor your sun sign include being: caring, artistic, persevering, fixated, materialistic, and stubbornly uncompromising.
