Practical, reliable, and stubborn, this Zodiac sign is known for their patience and their laissez-faire attitude to life.
Though they’re one of the easiest signs to understand, they’re still mysterious in their own way, so the following facts will help you get what Tauruses are all about.
#1. They don’t wallow in their misery.
Taurus is a dynamic sign that prefers action over words and shapes their actions accordingly.
When things get hard, they believe in fighting to improve with all they have and refuse to fall into self-pity or similar feelings, considering them a waste of time.
For Taurus, either you do or you don’t. There is no in-between.
#2. They need to feel appreciated by their loved ones.
While Tauruses are self-assured and confident enough to neither want nor need other people’s approval, they do care deeply about those they love and their opinions.
Tauruses are very self-sacrificing when it comes to their loved ones, and not having the approval, appreciation, or love of those they care about can be devastating.
#3. They have high expectations of others (and themselves.)
Though this doesn’t reach the same level as Virgo, Taurus has very lofty expectations both for themselves and others.
Unlike Virgo, who is kind of like that, Taurus does so because they want what’s best for others, and self-improving is part of it.
They don’t push you to do better because they expect you to be better, but rather because they think that can help you improve your life in the long run.
#4. They only want the best.
Tauruses have very high standards when it comes to the things they love.
As passionate lovers of all things physical, comfort matters to Taurus, so they aim to fulfill their baser needs in the most satisfying ways.
#5. They live in the present and don’t plan for the future.
Saving money, having a retirement account, investing, and generally planning for the future are things Taurus finds remarkably hard.
Some might be able to do it, but the vast majority live their day-to-day lives as if there were no tomorrow, spending on their here and now with no concern for the future.
#6. They don’t believe in revenge.
While Taurus can hold a grudge like no one else, they don’t believe in getting revenge.
Revenge involves spending time and effort on those who wronged them, and Taurus would rather just cut those people out of their life.
#7. They need plenty of alone time.
Even the most social Taurus needs to spend time away from people, recharging their batteries, and spending time with their favorite person in the world: Themselves.
#8. They’re reserved when meeting new people.
No one would ever describe Taurus as shy, but they’re definitely reserved, at least when meeting new people.
They prefer saving their true selves for those that matter, so expect lukewarm interactions until Taurus decides you’re worth their time.
#9. They’re huge couch potatoes.
Tauruses are lazy, even when they’re fit-freaks; They prefer spending their afternoons relaxing, watching a movie, or reading a book rather than going out for some drinks.
The ones that exercise push themselves as hard as they can and then laze around the rest of the day.
Why spend more energy on something than absolutely necessary?
#10. They have an excellent memory.
Tauruses don’t forget. Ever.
Their fantastic memories border on superpowers, and they’re capable of remembering even the most inconsequential stuff.
Give them a date and ask them to tell you what they can remember. Chances are they might even remember what they ate.
#11. They rarely ask for help.
Taureans prefer to try and do things themselves before asking for help.
Maybe it’s their stubbornness, perhaps their independence, but they’ll exhaust all their recourses before asking others to help them.
#12. They’re willing to sacrifice anything for their loved ones.
No one loves like a Taurus, and few people are as willing to fight for their loved ones like this sign.
When it comes to their loved ones, they transform into a bulwark, an immovable force that won’t compromise and will protect their loved ones no matter what.
Don’t try to hurt those Taurus loves. Just don’t.
#13. They find it hard to forgive.
When you think about it, it’s pretty logical. Tauruses have excellent memory and are incredibly stubborn, which means that once slighted, they struggle to let go.
Tauruses may not believe in revenge and are, in fact, more likely to cut people out of their lives, but that doesn’t mean they forgot when someone wronged them.
#14. When they say they’ll do something, they will.
Tauruses don’t make promises lightly. If they say they’ll do something, you better believe them, because they’ll keep that promise no matter what.
Their word is important to them, but even more important is how much they hate it when they let others down.
#15. Things are very black and white for them.
An unfortunate consequence of their stubbornness, Taureans tend to have very clear-cut mentalities with no room for grey-thinking.
#16. They like weird and unique people.
Taurus hate deceit, both in large and small doses.
People who pretend to be something they’re not are always in Taurus’s bad side, while people who are unashamedly themselves tend to be liked by this zodiac sign.
People with strange hobbies, ‘unconventional’ personalities, and those who live their lives regardless of what others think are always very attractive to Taurus.
#17. They value their peace and quiet.
Taureans value their mental well-being as much as their physical, which often means they can’t thrive in stressful environments where they don’t feel comfortable.
Part of Taurus’s couch potato characteristics comes from this. They like chilling at home so often precisely because it’s where they feel more at ease.
#18. It’s impossible to argue with them.
It doesn’t matter if you’re right, and Taurus is wrong. It doesn’t matter if logic, physics, history, and every science under the sun proves your point.
When Taurus digs in their heels, there’s nothing you can do to change their mind. You’re mistaken, they’re right, and that’s all there is to know about the subject.
#19. They’re surprisingly calm.
Despite their stubbornness, Taurus is one of the most chill signs out there; They know how to take their time, enjoy themselves, not take things personally, and live in the moment.
They’re the kind of sign that wants to live their day-to-day life as peacefully as possible, so even though they can be quite stubborn, they’re the perfect people to go to when you need to relax.
