The Taurus Zodiac sign is born between April 21st and May 21, and they’re classified as the element Earth- along with Capricorn and Virgo. If there’s anything that a Taurus is known for, it’s usually they’re stubbornness, however there is more to a Taurus than meets the eye. On this note, the following is everything you need to know about this specific Earth sign, Taurus:
What Is Their Personality Like?
If there’s something admirable about a Taurus, it’s their perseverance. If you need something done, get a Taurus to do it and they’ll finish the task with everything they’ve got. It’s not in them to do things half way. This is why Taurus is seen as someone to be looked upon in the workplace.
In the career aspect, if a Taurus decides their goal on something, they’ll do everything to go after this. In this sense, their perseverance along with their stubbornness can also be a negative trait in the sense that they tend to stay in things too long before they walk away- relationships, friendships, and other toxic areas of their lives.
They have an admirable amount of patience and resilience and it’s challenging for them to walk away from something, especially something or someone they truly love. Their persistence allows them to believe that things might eventually change for the better.
Another characteristic of a Taurus is their fondness for the nice things in love. This is a sign known for their luxurious life. They love spending on material things.
They will choose comfort, luxury and pleasure above everything else. Most likely, a Taurus is the one that looks so good, and their outfit and their physical appearance clearly shows this. If it’s a Taurus male, they’ll make sure they’re properly groomed and they have chosen the perfect suit and tie for that meeting.
If it’s a Taurus woman, they’ll have the perfect makeup, attire and shoes and capture the attention of everyone as she enters a room. Beauty, class and elegance is what a Taurus stands for, and they won’t settle for less.
A Taurus is also patient, as mentioned above. They take their time with literally everything, even with significant decisions. Most often than not, they’ve already thought of every outcome possible for every scenario.
It’s probably why a Taurus may tend to overthink even the simplest of things. In getting ready, they especially take their time and that’s why they’re often late, whether to work, to a party and maybe even to their own birthday. It’s nothing personal, they just don’t find the need to rush things at all.
A Taurus is also a relaxed and chill individual. They don’t put too much energy into things and they’ll let you do what you prefer. This can come off as aloof at times, but they’re just too relaxed in their own world to care. Take this opportunity as the chance to do your own thing while the Taurus in your life is lost in their own world, probably relaxing in their imaginary vacation. They’re just really chill, and it’s nothing against you.
What Is Money Like?
When it comes to finances, that’s where the strength of a Taurus is at best. They love the luxurious life and everything related to money, which means that they manage and spend their finances well.
When they have a budget, they stick to it, no matter the costs. They may have the urge to spend their money on the things they want, but they know they need to stick to their budget if they want to treat themselves later on- and that’s exactly their motive behind their savings. They may obsess over money, but they manage it the best. They just love the feeling of spending their money in one go, in a shopping spree most probably.
Don’t ever tag along when a Taurus goes shopping if you know you’re more than likely to get bored. A Taurus is patient, and this is evident even when they go to the mall and spend on things they want.
They’ll try all kinds of outfits, and it’s going to take hours before they make the final decision is what clothing they choose to spend on. The same goes for Taurus men, they’ll spend hours before calling the shots on which item to buy. If you’re a rather impatient person and you do your shopping fast, don’t invite a Taurus to come along with you.
What Are They Like In Love and Relationships?
A Taurus makes an excellent lover in relationships, but they don’t start that way. They need time to feel safe and secure in any environment as Taurus isn’t a sign known to thrive in changes. When a Taurus feels like they can trust you and let their guard down, that’s when they become romantic.
It may not be obvious, but a Taurus is touchy-feely in relationships. They become such a hopeless romantic, especially when they extremely love and adore the person. Their main love language is material gifts, obviously, and the second being physical touch.
A Taurus is a very sensual lover and this is part of the reason why they can’t do long distance relationships- that would be torture. In love, a Taurus needs to be close to the person to feel intimate once they already trust this person wholeheartedly.
A Taurus is also guilty of being clingy and needy with their significant other, and they need to keep their emotions in check- especially if their romantic partner happens to be one in the element of Fire. Not everyone loves a clingy and affectionate partner, because that’s a Taurus for you.
A Taurus values long-term relationships and knows the value of friendships and especially family. If there are any values that they grew up with, they’ll most likely find a partner that aligns with their morals and values.
Otherwise, they’ll end up feeling constantly frustrated in the relationship. They are extremely loyal and their loyalty is part of why they become so guarded at the beginning. They know their loyalty can be taken advantage of, and they take extra precaution in giving this to people.
Their weakness is shown with their emotions and they know they tend to overthink things to an extreme. They deal with a lot of emotions in general, and they can be hard on themselves because of this.
They wear their hearts on their sleeves, although it may not be obvious, but a Taurus has an extremely big heart. They’re good people and tend to feel things deeper than others do. A Taurus also tends to be highly dependent on other people for their happiness, such as co-dependent relationships.
This may be why they struggle in walking away from both friendships and relationships, especially toxic ones. They have a good heart and they believe they have it in them to be patient enough to wait for the other person to change. A Taurus also doesn’t like the idea of change, so when change is present, it causes them anxiety and overthinking. They like the familiarity and comfort, and they aren’t fond of the unknown.
How Is Their Compatibility?
The most obvious compatible signs for a Taurus are its fellow Earth signs- Capricorn and Virgo. With the same element, they naturally thrive and blend together. An Earth sign values wealth, status and success and these are principles that would act as a foundation if a Taurus does choose another Earth sign for a partner. However, there is more chemistry and compatibility with a Taurus-Scorpio relationship, and here’s why:
Taurus and Scorpio
Despite the intimidating exterior of a Scorpio. it’s a sign that functions on feeling and having emotions. Scorpio is often the one sign mistaken for a Fire sign instead of Water, because of its strong and aggressive personality- something that only Fire signs possess.
When a Taurus and Scorpio clash together, the Scorpio is there to understand and listen to all of the Taurus’ extreme and complication thoughts and feelings. When Earth and Air come together, there is a mutual understanding of emotions.
These are two signs that value loyalty and thrive in long-term relationships very much. They both value comfort, security and safety. Although, the Taurus is stubborn and the Scorpio can get passive-aggressive, this compatibility balances their differences out. a Scorpio is also very protective of their loved ones and there’s nothing they wouldn’t do to protect them, at all costs.
Taurus and Capricorn
Being both Earth signs, these two have a lot of similarities rather than differences. They’ll most likely bring each other up, and the Capricorn will inspire the Taurus even more to stay focused and driven with their goals, while the Taurus will teach the Capricorn on patience and persistence.
These two signs make an ambitious relationship. However, things can get challenging because of the nature of the Capricorn to be emotionally distant and cold while emotions come natural to a Taurus.
If they meet each other half way, they can learn to balance out their emotions and make this work. The emotionally distant side of the Capricorn can trigger negative emotions to the Taurus, and this is why it’s important to meet half way. Despite these two being Earth signs, they have significant personalities that are rather contradicting.
