Represented by the bull, Taurus is known to be a sign that is grounded. They like operating in balanced and stable environments and tend to be the bedrock for their loved ones. Tauruses typically keep to themselves, are super observant and love a routine.

Their penchant for the finer things in life and finding the balance between work and play can easily elevate any friend group. Think of these earth signs as that one friend who knows all the best spots to party, but can also cut out some R&R time and plan a fabulous girls' day at a posh spa.

Cool as they are, Tauruses are also renowned for their stubborn nature. According to Co-Star Astrology, "[Tauruses] are not going to do something they don’t want to do. They’re slow to change their minds because change threatens their sense of stability. They can become so set in their routine that they get too comfortable and lose sight of what really matters."

So, how do all these traits show up when Taurus is your rising sign? (That is, Taurus was ascendant in the eastern horizon at the time you were born.) Unlike your sun sign, which is more about your ego and the way you present yourself to the world, your rising sign determines how people actually perceive you and how they interpret your actions. For example, someone who is as determined and action-oriented like an Aries can be perceived to be stubborn, headstrong and unyielding if they are Taurus rising.

Below, we tapped Psychic Teagan, premier astrologist with California Psychics for a full breakdown of the Taurus rising sign.

What are the personality traits of a Taurus rising?

Though they're thoughtful, kind and poised, Taurus rising signs still have a strong personality. They may not be the loudest ones in the room or the most outgoing people, but they hold firm to their opinions and always need to know full details before partaking in any plan.

"They’re an earth sign, so they’re going to be super grounded," Teagan tells PEOPLE. "They’re very practical people. Their personalities are strong, so they’re good people to lean [on]."

Because of their need for stability and their practical nature, Taurus risings are also seekers. They're big researchers, very keen on planning and being meticulous. "They’re like sponges," Teagan says. "They just can’t get enough information; they’re always seeking intellectual stimulation. If you can get their minds going, they will talk and talk and talk all night long."

What is the mindset of a Taurus rising?

Again, because Taurus is an earth sign, they're more likely to take a minute to make a decision. Taurus risings really want to assess, so don't expect them to be impulsive; they’re going to weigh every pro and con, assess all possible outcomes and even offer up alternatives before they proceed with any choice. "I like to refer to them as 'the slow and steady,'" Teagan explains.

Which zodiac signs are most compatible with Taurus rising signs?

With Taurus rising being an earth sign, fellow earth signs Virgos and Capricorns will make for the best connections, says Teagan. However, Tauruses can make things work with Scorpios, who are their congenial elements (or direct opposite).

"Scorpio is a water sign, but they have enough differences to really learn from one another," Teagan explains. Other water signs Cancers and Pisces can also get along well with Taurus risings. "So Virgo, Capricorn and Scorpio would be the top three [most compatible], and then Pisces and Cancer would follow," she says.

Which zodiac signs are least compatible with Taurus rising signs?

When it comes to the least compatible signs, Taurus risings will struggle with Gemini and will most likely have some friction with two fire signs: Aries, who can be a little too fiery, and Sagittarius, who can be a bit too spontaneous. With Aries, Gemini and Sagittarius, Teagan says Taurus risings will have to "really focus to make those relationships work."

How are Taurus rising signs in relationships?

While Taurus risings are very affectionate, they don’t ever want to look like they’re not in control, so they may hold back or prove to be reserved in the beginning of a relationship.

Still, Taurus risings are very loyal and will bend over backward for the people they love. These signs are the type to move things around in their schedule to accommodate you and show you they care. "It can be frustrating for some people because Taurus tends to be a bit slower in verbalizing how they’re feeling. They need time to open up, but once they do, there are no ifs, ands, or buts about it. You’re going to know exactly how they feel," explains Teagan.

Another thing to note, per Teagan: "The way to a Taurus rising’s heart is through their stomach. They love food!"

How are Taurus rising signs in friendships?

Much like how they operate in their romantic relationships, Taurus risings would prefer to avoid talking about their emotions. Instead, "they’d rather present to the world that everything’s okay than show insecurities or a sense of vulnerability."

As friends, Teagan says they can sometimes seem a little wishy-washy, but only because they don’t always know the right things to say and their body language can come off as aloof. "They don’t want to show vulnerability, so they will revert any questions back to you if they start to get anxious," she says.

They are, however, very protective of their friends and loved ones and again, are very dependable people.

How are Taurus rising signs as parents?

"What I love about Taurus rising as parents is they’re very, very patient," says Psychic Teagan. "They offer a nurturing, very loving and soft place for their kids to land."

She continues, "They’re also really good with routines because, in their mind, they want routines too. So as parents, they’re going to offer a sense of security [and stability]."

How are Taurus rising signs in the workplace?

As colleagues or managers in the workplace, Taurus risings are true bulls: tenacious, hardworking and focused. Because of their unbeatable work ethic and firm opinions, Taurus risings can sometimes come across as very headstrong, because when they believe they're right about something, they won’t back down. They also have no problem challenging someone.

At the core, Tauruses want everyone they’re working with to be the best possible version of themselves. They are great team players, but they're never afraid of interjecting or being assertive.
