Taurus is known for their trademark steadiness and security. But far beyond boring and predictable, it makes them passionate and determined about what they say, do, and love. When they work, they work hard. And when they relax, they relax very hard. And when a Taurus loves, they love the hardest they can.
Ruled by Venus, Taurus evokes a subtle and sensual sexuality. Taureans loves pleasure. From the finest wines to the most decadent chocolate, dining with a Taurus is guaranteed to excite and engage all of the five senses. And it is likely that shortly after, the pleasure will continue in a more intimate setting as Taurus is keen on carnal delights as well.
From the arts, to music, film and literature, a Taurus is a true aesthete, who delights in what is visually pleasing and physically pleasurable. They can spend all day luxuriating in a cozy nook reading a book, with their hands deep in the dirt of a budding garden, or physically exerting energy on an outdoor hike. No matter what they choose, they participate in their activity like it’s an art form.
As the sign associated with the earthly realm, Taurus is known for securing resources. While that can extend to financial matters and material goods (Taurus loves all the shiny things!) it can also extend to their attitudes about friends, family and lovers. Taurus can be quite possessive and when they feel threatened about a job or relationship, may exhibit jealous or insecure behaviors.
You could try to convince a Taurus that they’re wrong about something, but the effort will exhaust one of you and that will likely not be the Taurus. With their well-known stubbornness flares, a Taurus will stick to defending their point of view, often even in the face of evidence to the contrary. Symbolized by the bull, they may be slow to anger, but can be quite headstrong when triggered.
As a fan of creature comforts, surprises do not rank highly on a list of what Taurus loves. As a sign that takes comfort in security, it may make a Taurus less prone to be an adventurous traveler or in wanting to venture too far from home. It can also manifest as staying in a secure job but one that does not inspire passion or creativity in them, simply because they prioritize a steady paycheck instead of personal satisfaction.
As a Fixed Earth sign, Taurus’s sturdiness also extends to their romantic relationships. Because they crave security and prize stability, Taurus will avoid any kinds of soap operatic behavior and will want to minimize any kind of drama. They have a tendency towards being chill and easy-going -- once they’re secure about how they feel about you, they won’t play any mind games with you.
When you’re friends with a Taurus, scheduling planned dates will go a long way in easing any of their social anxieties – just be prepared to tell them that what they should wear, what they should bring, and what time they should be there, while also allowing them a bit of a grace period for their notorious tardiness. With their home being very important to them, you will also find a Taurus being the first to ask if you’d rather just come over, hang out on the couch and watch some movies, their idea of the perfect social gathering.
Taurus values practicality and predictability in their work environment. Their routine is important to them, as they like to know what to expect and what is expected of them. Last-minute redirections, intense deadlines, or changes in management or leadership are likely triggers for a Taurus to feel frustrated, as their trademark inflexibility will rear its head. Impress a Taurus instead with long-term results and you’ll be met with their dedicated and quiet capabilities.
