Taurus Facts Overview
Following Aries, Taurus is a fixed earth sign.
Fixed signs fall in the middle of every season (winter, spring, summer, and fall) and act as a stabilizer. While an Aries may get a group of their friends pumped up to go fishing, a Taurus would be the one to pack water, gather the fishing poles, bring bait, and make sure everyone wears their sunscreen.
The ultimate goal of a fixed sign like Taurus is to provide a solid foundation. Without these Zodiac signs, we’d all end up on a boat, burned, with nothing to drink!
Because of their desire to ensure all the Ts are crossed and Is are dotted, Taurus-born are extremely reliable and make great friends, family members, and employees.
Taurus is also an earth sign, which speaks to why those born between March 20 and April 20 are so grounded. They’re often not afraid to play the long game and slowly build a solid foundation.
They won’t find their head in the clouds like their neighboring sign (*cough* Aries *cough*) and often find themselves creating a realistic plan.
With a bull for a sign, it’s no surprise Taurus stands for getting the job done and never wavering from the plan.
Taurus Facts: Personality Traits and Characteristics
On a good day, the Taurus personality is:
- Down to earth
- Strong willed
On the flip side, you may also see these traits in your Taurus:
The fact is that Taurus women know what they want and are patient enough to get it.
They may be the tortoise in the tortoise and the hare, but they always win.
Her friends may ask her how she always seems to know what to do, and she may not even be able to tell them! Taurus women have amazing intuition an aren’t afraid to act on it.
Taurus ladies are highly analytical and often scrutinize potential friends and partners to ensure they’re worth their time and energy.
Because a Taurus woman invests so much in her relationships, they are protective of who they let in their inner circle, and may come off as distant or cold. However, once they open up, they don’t hold anything back.
Taurus Woman in Love
In love, a Taurus woman will stop at almost nothing to ensure her partner is happy. She wants to be the best she can be and looks at relationships like a project she needs to execute.
However, because of her loyalty and need to please, a Taurus woman may stay in a relationship longer than she wants to.
Long story short, a Taurus girl is someone you can depend on. She’s strong, practical and reliable. Because of her loyalty, she’s careful who she falls in love with. But once she does, stars align and she’s ready to settle down.
Partners of Taurus women know almost no one takes better care of them than she does. Her ultimate goal is for everyone in her life to be happy and satisfied. The only thing she asks in return? To be loved and cared about.
If she senses she’s being taken advantage of she will quickly go cold and distant.
Looking for a man who knows exactly what he wants? Look no further! Taurus guys are extremely focused and rarely waver from their end goal.
While they put a determined, cool, calm, and collected front up on the exterior, don’t forget that Taurus is ruled by the planet of love (Venus). That means there’s a hopeless romantic tucked away behind those stubborn eyes.
In a relationship, a Taurus man loves routine. Sudden changes may totally throw him for a loop and make him respond with fear or anger.
On the flip side, he’s vastly loyal and goes above and beyond to please who he’s with. People around him may make jokes that he makes the rest of them look bad because he’s always bringing home flowers for his partner or planning romantic outings.
Taurus Facts: Men and Their Friends
His friends may not look to him for leadership, but when they come up with a crazy idea, they know he’ll pull all the strings behind the scenes to make it happen. A Taurus man is likely the reason his friends kept making it home after their college parties because he never ditches someone in his inner circle.
Because he invests so much in his personal relationships, a Taurus man will be pretty picky about who he really connects with. People may see him as aloof or judgmental, but he’s just deciding where his energy is best spent.
Long story short, a Taurus guy is someone you want in your corner. Not only will he ensure your plans go off without a hitch, he’ll stay loyal through the end.
Fun Taurus Facts and History of the Zodiac Sign
Taurus is one of the oldest known constellations, which actually makes perfect sense if you think about it… since Taurus-born are all about playing the long game.
Taurus guys and gals are likely to be the ones nodding along while the rest of us have a revelation.
Taurus doesn’t coincide with the constellation of Taurus (which isn’t unusual), so it’s actually a continuation of the sign of Aries. This shows up in shared personality traits like stubbornness, perseverance, and loyalty.
However, those with the Taurus Zodiac sign definitely have their own identity (just ask anyone around them!)
One of the myths surrounding Taurus is that of Zeus abducting Europa (a Phoenician princess). The story says that she was having fun with her friends on a seashore when Zeus first laid eyes on her. He instantly fell in love and approached her disguised as a bull. Europa was attracted to the beauty of the bull and jumped on his back to ride him.
Zeus then took her across the water to Crete, where she gave birth to his three sons. After this, she married the Crete king Asterion from whom these children inherited the rule of the island.
To this day Taurus is referred to as “The bull of heaven” or “The bull in front.” Its sign is also a bull.
Taurus Love Compatibility
Let’s get on the juicy stuff, shall we? Here are some of the signs lucky enough to play nice with the Taurus Zodiac sign.
Taurus and Cancer
Taurus and Cancer are two peas in a pod. They both understand the need for stability and share a strong value in emotional sensitivity. These two signs could talk for days rarely have a communication problem. To top it off, they’re likely to understand each partner’s unique perspective on intimacy and fit together like yin and yang.
Taurus and Capricorn
Because both of these signs like to tell it how it is, there’s rarely any miscommunications between a Capricorn and Taurus. These two signs both place a high value on trust and intellect, so they’ll be the ones chatting in the corner for hours while their friends discuss last night’s game. This pair can balance each other’s perceived coldness out and create a fire that could pass the test of time.
Taurus and Pisces
Talk about a match made in heaven! A Taurus Zodiac sign and Pisces duo can be straight out of a Hallmark movie. This relationship is all about giving and receiving, and each partner will do an equal amount of both. They both understand the need for emotional intimacy and will each make a point to ensure the other feel loved and cared for.
On the flip side. Here are some of the least compatible signs with Taurus that will likely drive a change-resistant Taurus away:
Taurus and Sagittarius
Born adventures, Sagittarius folk hate sitting still and thrive on spontaneity. This can be a real nightmare for a Taurus who loves routine and predictability! Sagittarius are also known to speak their mind without much thought about how it will make someone feel. This tendency may hurt a Taurus’ feelings and cause them to close off or turn cold.
Taurus and Gemini
While Geminis love romance and emotional chats like Taurus does, they bore easily and love to shake things up. A Taurus would rather sit at home and enjoy a night in, while a Gemini would like to take the town by storm with a group of friends. This would likely become an exhausting impasse that could cause both parties to lose interest.
Taurus and Aquarius
Free-spirited Aquarius may not understand the routine-loving Taurus’. Because they like to fly by the seat of their pants, they may feel like their Taurus counterpart is taking life too seriously or being a drag. On the flip side, a Taurus may get stressed by the lack of planning their Aquarius partner is doing. Trust may quickly become an issue with this duo.
Taurus Facts: Career
By now it’s probably no surprise that those born under the Taurus astrology sign live for routine and detail. Without lots of Taurus’ in the workplace, projects would often go half finished or unravel.
Taurus will likely find themselves thriving in a support role rather than a leadership role at the office. Not because they aren’t leaders, but because they’re wonderful supporters. They give upper management the ability to dream big and then they focus on executing the plans.
They tell it like it is so in a workplace they may earn a rep for being cold or blunt. Ultimately though they really care about the end result and are just trying to get all the information they need to ensure success.
Cool Taurus fact: Their bosses know they can count on them, and coworkers who have earned their trust know they will always have their back.
In a nutshell, Taurus workers will likely find a position where they work the same schedule daily and will rarely switch jobs or companies once they find a good place to settle in. However, because of their loyalty, they also may stay in a position that no longer serves them longer than they should.
Taurus Facts About Money
As a general rule, Taurus is a very generous Zodiac sign. They want their close friends and family to be well taken care of and have all their needs met.
A Taurus has probably been saving money since childhood, so it’s not uncommon for them to have large bank accounts. However, because they are risk adverse, they will rarely put large chunks of money in investments or try their hand at gambling.
Because they love plans, those with the Taurus astrology sign will probably follow a budget closely. They’ve also been known to argue at the checkout counter over a few cents!
