The Personality Traits of a Taurus
Taurus is widely recognised as one of the calmest and most stable signs of the Zodiac, as is to be expected from an Earth signs. They are very thoughtful people who are able to master their emotions and be extremely patient. Thanks to this, they are able to make good progress with everything that they put their minds to and overcome most obstacles that come their way. This allows them to be very determined people, who will see challenges through to the end.
As Earth signs, it is no surprise that Taurus are very interested in money and material goods. However, this does not make them materialistic; rather they are interested in the security that money brings. Furthermore, family is very important to a Taurus, and they will seek money in order to provide better for their loved ones.
This quest for security often makes Taurus into very resourceful people. They will be very good at earning money, or sourcing whatever they need in material terms, in order to achieve their goals. They can also be very generous with their resources, and will not shy away from helping others in need.
This is because a Taurus will have a heart of gold, and as they are ruled by Venus, the planet of love, peace and harmony, they will always care for those around them and seek to establish a nurturing environment. They will be generous towards friends and family, and will do everything that they can to ensure that those closest to them are looked after and well provided for.
Taurus are often very traditional people with clear values and beliefs that are almost impossible to change. They cannot be fooled easily and are happy to stand up for what they believe in. Similarly, they are not easily influenced by others and have the self-confidence to stick by what they believe to be right.
As a result, Taurus are very responsible and dependable people. Both at work and in their friendships/relationships, people can rely on them. Taurus is a fixed sign, which means that they are able to keep going and push through barriers, regardless of what job they are presented with. However, they will do so with the minimum or risks, preferring to find safe ways of achieving their goals.
This means that Taurus possess an abundance of patience. It is rare to hear a Taurus complain about standing in a long line or receiving slow or substandard service. Furthermore, they do not mind waiting for others to finish their jobs, as long as they know that it will be done properly in the end. A Taurus is aware that Rome wasn’t built in a day, and they feel no need to rush things, especially if it means a sacrifice in quality. As such, they tend to have very calm and gentle natures, making them highly approachable people.
That said, while a Taurus may be patient, they never give up. Just like the Bull that symbolises a Taurus, once they see a target, they will head straight for it. Extending the metaphor, Bulls will take the time to analyse a situation and look for the opening they need to attack, and this is just how a Taurus will approach a problem. While it may take a Taurus a little while to get going, you can be sure that once they begin, it will be a valiant effort that is full of energy and very likely to succeed.
The sign of Taurus is ruled by the five senses, and people born under the sign will love the pleasure that can be found by exploring all of their senses. This means that Taurus enjoy physical affection and are quick to give hugs to loved ones. However, while they are quick to show affection, they will struggle to talk about their emotions, and find it hard to open up.
This combined with a Taurus’ love of materialistic things, can make them seem a bit superficial. They will always be looking to own the finest clothes, eat the best foods, and visit the most beautiful places. As an Earth sign ruled by Venus, Taurus is truly in touch with the physical world but often forgets about the emotional.
This can also make Taurus a bit greedy. They are always looking for more, be it food, clothes, money or anything else. They love to overindulge and will treasure all of their valuable items. Furthermore, if they are feeling satisfied with what they have, then it can affect their drive and they can become very lazy.
However, when working towards something, Taurus are very practically and are excellent at logical planning. It means that it can take them a little while to feel comfortable with something, and this can be very frustrating for those around them who wish to move a bit faster. It can even cause some people to view Taurus as slow, lazy, and unnecessarily cautious.
As noted, Taurus are committed to their beliefs and it is very hard to change them. This is because they struggle to open up emotionally and give serious weight to the views and ideas of others. Because of this, they may come across as stubborn and closed-off, and a Taurus will struggle with empathy. However, Taurus are naturally warm-hearted, so with a little self-awareness, they are able to overcome this trait.
Should they not, then they may find that they become unexpectedly selfish. A Taurus likes things to go their way and according to the plans that they have made. When this doesn’t happen, they can become angry and frustrated. A Taurus wants to be in charge, and may struggle to follow others’ leads. This is because a Taurus truly struggles to leave their comfort zone and try new things. They wish to feel grounded at all times and prefer to take the tried and tested route. This can cause a Taurus to become a bit stuck in their ways, and they will have to work hard to break out of the mould and try new things.
This is not an overly negative thing; rather it is the by-product of deeply ingrained traits. A Taurus is instinctively kind, is highly capable, and wants what is best. As long as they can learn to let go a little, and recognise that not everything can be controlled, then they will prosper and feel fulfilled.
How Taurus Treat Love and Relationships
With Venus as the ruling planet, Taurus are all about sensuality and physicality. For a relationship to have a chance, a Taurus must feel a physical attraction from the very first moment, not because they are shallow people, but because a Taurus lives for the physical senses.
More problematic, is the reluctance of Taurus to let their barriers down and allow their emotions to show. Taurus are very reluctant to open up at all, they want to protect their inner selves, and it will take a long time for them to let their guard down.
Furthermore, a Taurus will not hugely enjoy flirting; rather, they would prefer a real in-depth conversation rather than platitudes and frivolity. They have an excellent ability to tell when people are being honest, and will quickly lose respect for someone if they feel that they are not genuine.
When it comes to long-term relationships, a Taurus will be looking for someone with the same values regarding family and who is able to meet their intellectual needs. Traditional values are often hugely important to a Taurus, and they will only be interested in partners who share these values. However, it is important that a Taurus learns to try new things; otherwise, they may feel that life has become a bit stale and they may unfairly blame their partner for this.
A Taurus will often be drawn to their fellow Earth signs (Virgo and Capricorn). The partnership will often be very calm and stable with absolutely no drama, which to others can be somewhat confusing. However, it is exactly what an Earth sign needs, the ability to spend time together without having to worry about explosive fireworks going off. They can build extremely solid foundations that will last for years.
For example, Virgos and Taurus will stay away from drama and both have the desire to commit for life. Neither sign is comfortable with very public displays of emotion, but they will have an almost psychic connection and instinctive understanding of what the other needs. Both signs love things of beauty, and they will pursue a relationship that is full of it. Capricorns will have the ambition to match Taurus’ persistence. Together, a Taurus and a Capricorn will be able to achieve a huge amount, and each will be able to rely on the other completely.
If a Taurus wants to move away from Earth signs then a Pisces may be a good match. Pisces are imaginative and emotional, and therefore able to help draw Taurus out from their shell. At the same time, Taurus will provide grounding to the Pisces and reduce the drama in their life.
Taurus’ Approach to Career and Money
Taurus take a slow and steady approach to nearly everything, and this is a great aid at work. It makes them into fantastic project managers, able to take an idea, break it down into its component parts, and build a plan and the strategies needed to see it through to its end. A Taurus is not looking for glory and has little time for office politics; rather they get genuine satisfaction from completing tasks and have a real desire to do their best.
These skills also make Taurus very good leaders who are able to delegate and praise others for a job well down. They will normally lead by example and find it easy to gain the respect of those working for them. While a Taurus likes to work in a step by step manner, this doesn’t mean that they are pedestrian thinkers. They can be extremely creative in coming up with new approaches and solutions, but they will not implement them until they feel that they have been properly thought through.
At work, a Taurus will be very diligent. They are often the first to arrive and the last to leave. They are happy to work on a team, and they will do everything necessary to get a job done. While these are excellent qualities, it does mean that Taurus has to be a little careful that others do not take them advantage of them.
As mentioned, Taurus is an Earth sign and as such, loves material things. This means that money is hugely important to them. However, it is not just that Taurus enjoys luxury; they also like the feeling of security. Therefore, they won’t necessarily spend irresponsibly, they are more likely to wait until they are sure they have the funds before they allow themselves their next indulgence.
Furthermore, Taurus are very logical people and they are good with numbers. This means that they are good at balancing their budgets, planning their finances and setting up investment accounts. Taurus also have an excellent sense of self-worth and they will feel no shame about asking for a promotion or raise. This combined with their natural perseverance means that a Taurus will normally manage to quickly advance in their chosen careers.
Taurus are more suited to routine jobs than those that require risk or rapid decision-making. For instance, they may not be very good at building their own companies, as they will not respond well to the risks involved. However, they can be fantastic bankers, financier and accountants, and are also likely to thrive in the real estate business or as a trader.
However, many Taurus will prefer something a little more creative, and it is not unusual for a Taurus to excel at the arts, as they require a great deal of dedication and perseverance. In fact, Taurus love beauty, so spending all day working to create something aesthetically pleasing may be the perfect thing.
How Taurus Responds to Friends and Family
Family is very important to Taurus. They normally love children and will cherish time spent with those who love them. Family routines and traditions are always highly important to a Taurus, and they will go out of their way to remember birthdays and turn up for every special occasion.
This same loyalty and devotion applies to friendship. Once a Taurus makes a friend, they will expect it to be for life. Taurus are also a huge amount of fun to spend time with and they can be very funny. They take friendship seriously and they will remember birthdays, anniversaries, and other important occasions. However, because they take it seriously, it can take a long time for them to accept someone as a friend wholeheartedly.
Taurus never respond well to lies and they tend to be suspicious of those who flatter them too much. They would much rather engage in a respectful argument, and this can go a long way towards cementing a friendship.
It is not unusual to find that a Taurus’ best friend is a Pisces. A Pisces is able to help a Taurus engage with their own emotions, while at the same time provide no nonsense support and be ready to head off on adventures together. Both Taurus and Pisces recognise that time spent at home can be just as enjoyable as a busy day out, and Pisces are also adept at taming Taurus’ stubborn streak. In short, the two signs complement each other and together make a secure unit that are able to have a huge amount of fun.
One of the best things about being friends with a Taurus is that they are excellent in any type of crisis. They are there to provide support and at the same time, are more than capable of helping with any practical steps that need to be taken. Similarly, if you make a mistake, then a Taurus will remain loyal and they have no time for drama, so will avoid all types of gossip.
Friends and family often provide the biggest source of motivation to a Taurus. They want to be there for them in every way possible, and will do everything they can to ensure that they are.
With their determination, perseverance, and ability to succeed, it is no surprise that there are many Taurus celebrities. Here you can learn a bit about them and what it is that makes them so clearly a Taurus.
Born 22 April 1986, the actress Amber heard refuses to conform to labels and in a manner typical of a fixed Earth sign who happily speaks their mind, Amber was very open about her bisexuality when she announced her relationship with the photographer Tasya van Ree at the 25th anniversary celebration for GLAAD in 2010. Furthermore, in a more traditional Taurus style, for a while at least, she seemed to be a grounding influence for Johnny Depp.
Born 26 April 1980, the actor Channing Tatum is a brilliant example of how Taurus’ perseverance can lead to great success. He had to work extremely hard to get to where he is today. Before becoming Magic Mike, Tatum earned an athletic scholarship to college and worked doing odd jobs including in construction and modelling. However, he never took his eyes off the prize and steadily made it to the top of the career ladder.
Born 28 April 1981, Jessica Alba is known to be an eco-friendly domestic guru, which fits perfectly with a Taurus’ desire for the material. She has her own line of environmentally friendly household products and is reportedly very good at restoring old furniture, once again showing the practical side of being a Taurus.
Born 2 May 1975, David Beckham is an excellent example of a Taurus. Becoming one of the top football players in the world requires far more than natural talent, it also requires practise, practise and more practise, something a Taurus excels at. Furthermore, Beckham has shown plenty of interest in the material with his own line of underwear and swimwear. He is also devoted to his family and reportedly has a number of tattoos in tribute to his wife and children.
Born 5 May 1988, Adele is no stranger to success as the first woman in history to top Billboard lists for best artist, album and single in the same year. Furthermore, she is down to earth in true Taurus style, as seen through her social media posts and the way in which she is happy to communicate with the audience at her concerts.
Born 6 May 1961, actor George Clooney shows both the success and responsibility that are associated with Taurus. He is known for freely expressing his political views and his more serious side can be seen in some of the films that he makes with his production company.
Queen Elizabeth II
Born 21 April 1926, Queen Elizabeth II displays many signs of being a Taurus. She is clearly a very determined woman who has successfully ruled over the commonwealth for a very long time, in fact, she is the longest ruling monarch. Furthermore, there can be no doubt of her loyalty to the people of the UK, something that is Taurus through and through.
