Taurus is a misunderstood star sign. Many people think of Taureans as laidback, even lazy, and extremely stubborn. Sure, they CAN come off like this sometimes, but actually those behaviours are driven by a more intellectual and analytical nature than they’re credited with.

Taureans, born between April 21 and May 21, ponder deeply on all matters - love, life, money, work, the weather, last year’s Love Island. They deconstruct situations carefully, pull them apart in order to understand how things work and what makes people tick. This takes a while (hence them seeming lazy) and when it’s done means that their conclusions are thorough and rock-solid (hence why they seem stubborn, because they know their own mind).

To get an idea of the classic Taurean personality traits and types, we need only to look to some of the most famous bulls (the sign’s spirit animal): Adele, Rami Malek, David Beckham, Queen Elizabeth, Kelly Clarkson, Cate Blanchett and Cher to name a few.

Taureans can be gentle and they can be fierce, they don’t like to be pushed, they have strong opinions, and they love their home comforts.

Perserverance (read: possessed)

If you want something done, ask a Taurus. There is no task or challenge that will beat them, they have endless reserves of tenacity, patience and resilience. Like the tide on the shore, they’ll just keep coming back at it. Until it becomes something which, seriously, it’s time to move on from i.e. relationships, feuds, hotdog-eating competitions etc.

Aesthetic (read: fussy)

This star sign likes the good life, prioritises their comfort and pleasure over pretty much all else, and loves luxury. Their appearance, their homes, their material world will look, feel, smell and taste awesome! Remember this on birthdays and Christmas. Do NOT think the beauty-dupe from Aldi will hold sway. Nope. They only want “the best”.

Patient (read: immovable)

Taureans live life at a slower pace than most other people (they’re usually late for stuff, too). What actually drives this is a deeply-held desire to ponder and consider their every move (as well as yours.) They like to analyse… everything. And it’s this eternal deliberation which makes them so darned stubborn. They have already thought it all through (trust me) and therefore are totally clear on and committed to where they stand.

Sensuous (read: greedy)

Taureans are intensely physical creatures - they revere the pleasures of the material world (rather than imaginative capers or fantasy stories.) So: food, drink, chilling, pampering, shopping, sex. Basically, that’s it. That activity-combo is what makes Taurus tick. And, they can have difficulty finding the off button for the aforementioned. This can lead them into trouble...

Chilled (read: zoned out)

“ARE YOU EVEN LISTENING TO ME?" is something that partners of Taureans will get used to screaming, in sheer frustration and desperation, through locked doors/down stairways/into their other half’s face. Nope, they’re not listening to you (unless you’re offering food/drink/sex/money.) They are thinking. Or even, sometimes, just, you know, *chilling*. Taureans love doing nothing. Just being kinda vacant. Let them be. It means you can get on with whatever you wanna do and they won’t fuss over you. Enjoy it!

What are Taureans into?

Money. The key to a lot of physical pleasure, and therefore the access code to their enjoyment of life (as well as quelling their deep-rooted Earth sign desire for security). ALL Taureans obsess over, respect and manage their money. They enjoy investing and saving.

Food. Taureans don’t eat to live, they live to eat. Food is massively important and they enjoy cooking and hosting dinner parties but, even more, going out to scoff at any given opportunity. Natural-born food bloggers!

Chilling. They don’t even need Netflix. Just give them a dressing gown, a fluffy blanket and some peace ’n’ quiet and they can stop on that sofa for HOURS.

Flirting. I can’t put my finger on why, exactly, but Taureans are always hot stuff, and draw admirers like moths to a flame. They only need to glance at a dating app, and it lights up with invitations. They know how to have a good time, so they make for great company - in love or friendship! They love attracting admiring attention, and are expert flirts.

Shopping. It’s not just a necessity or pragmatic list-driven activity but, rather, a specialist event undertaken for its own pleasure. They’re the kind of people who will go “down town” all day, browsing and ambling around their favourite boutiques and stores (with a nice lunch too, obvs.) They take shopping seriously. Don’t tag along unless you do too - you’ll be bored.

Taurus most attractive traits

Taureans are naturally sexy people, because they are ruled by Venus, the planet of love and pleasure no less. Taureans have a strong inner self-belief, which doesn’t need shouting about, and this draws people to them because they can be trusted. Taureans don’t sweat the small stuff, and this means they’re calming to be around. Taurus also knows how to have a good time, so they are fun and always-up-for-it company.

  • They love pleasure and indulgence, and are more than happy to indulge you too.

  • They are soothing, stoic, chilled, and happy in their own skin. There is no drama or tension in their default state of mind or mood.

  • They possess ~come-to-bed~ doe eyes, all Taureans have got those come-hither eyes, which works wonders for them.

Who gets on best with Taurus?

Nearly everyone fancies them because they have this chilled, sensual demeanour which draws people in, perhaps we sense their love of a good time... But, like all elemental groups, the Earth sign trio (Taurus, Capricorn, Virgo) all get on well with each other. They can talk money, shopping, home improvements and food... and then take a lil’ nap together. Bliss.

The hot tip for hot sex for Taurus is to find a Scorpio lover. Scorpio takes pleasure as seriously as Taurus, and is as committed to, and adventurous about, getting themselves off (*ahem*) which makes for a really, searingly HOT match. An intense, sexual bond.

Taurus, you’re a great pal and a great partner, and we forgive you for not listening to us. Now, wake up, and let’s go have some fun!

Taurus turn ons

  • Sex. You are a super sexy sign, with a healthy big sexual appetite, and a lust for physical contact and connection. Ruled by Venus, you’re totally in tune with your sensuality and it’s a priority in your life. Giving and receiving pleasure is what relationships are built on right? In your book, yes.

  • Eating is a key ingredient of your sensuality and pleasure principles. Good food and drink is more than just ~fuel~ to you, it’s an experience, an indulgence, a reward, and a ~time out~ from life. Good dates always involve some kinda’ deliciousness.

  • Cosy time. Staying home, cuddling up, being one-on-one all snuggly someplace safe is your ideal night (or day tbh) activity. You feel closest, more likely to open up, and more intimate and aroused when you’re alone with your object of affection, just relaxing, no pressure and no major ~stuff~ to do. You know lots of ways to pass the time…

Taurus turn offs

  • Being busy. Having a packed itinerary or schedule and facing a long list of activities to tick off makes you feel tired and grumpy. Your highly tuned sensuality means you struggle to do anything you’re not ~in the mood~ for. You don’t press on. You don’t like going out of your comfort zone (why would anyone in fact?). Life should be lived spontaneously IYHO, doing what FEELS good in that moment. Any whiff of a to-do list, and you’re outta’ there.

  • Nothing makes your eyes go dead and your face fall like the mention of a ~healthy lifestyle~. For Taureans, this is ~code~ for denial, misery, frugality, withdrawal, blandness and gloom. Friends or partners who love to diet, count the calories, exercise daily, live with strict controls on their consumptions just don’t ~get~ you and how you like to live. You can’t bear the pressure or judgment.
