Taurus has been described as patient, self-indulgent, stubborn, and boring, but only a Taurus can really understand what you’re really like beneath those labels. The bull born between April 20 and May 20 can be such a happy sign, if only everyone would do everything exactly like you want them to. Here are 12 reasons why you might only understand Taurus if you are one.
1. You enjoy the finer things in life.
Taurus personalities are more than willing to pay a little extra for a bit of luxury, whether in dining out, on vacations, or in decorating their homes. Everyone likes nice things, but you REALLY do. Quality over quantity is your motto. Even if you can buy the same thing at a discount store for $5.00, you would rather have the imported Italian hand-crafted one that cost half of your paycheck.
2. This can make you a little materialistic.
Those born under Taurus can become fixated on material, superficial goods, and may sometimes feel resentful if they can’t have those goods NOW.
You love prizes and rewards.
Your hardworking and competitive nature has left you craving rewards and prizes. You look forward to the end result, which is why you love the work so much.
3. You’re just a liiiittle bit stubborn.
Taurus, the stubborn Bull, has a hard time being told they can’t do what they want to do. On the plus side, this makes many Taurus personalities persistent and reliable. As a Taurus, you know that the personality trait of stubbornness doesn’t always apply to you, right? You can think of at least one time that you compromised on something, can’t you? No? We didn’t think so, and we promise not to tell anyone that science backs up your unwillingness to compromise either.
4. You’re possessive in your personal relationships.
You tend to lavish attention upon those closest to you, and that (in combination with your stubbornness) can lead you to be a bit territorial. In love, your possessive signs might have a tendency to show up. You are loyal to the one falling into your eyesight. You pleases to listen to your loved one’s sorrowful stories! The most important thing is – you will never let your loved ones feel lonely or disappointed.
5. You’re not a big risk-taker.
Practicality and comfort are important to the Taurus, so they’re not likely to seek out risk and adventure for risk and adventure’s sake. A Taurus likes to take things slowly and steadily.
It’s not a boring routine, it’s called discipline.
Others do not understand your dedication to doing things the same way, at the same time, over and over again. ‘Aren’t you bored?’ they ask. Only Taurus could understand that the discipline of a finely-crafted routine has taken years to perfect so that all of our needs are met regularly.
6. You’re your own worst critic.
Because working hard and being reliable are important to you, you judge yourself extra harshly whenever you (rarely!) fall short of your own very high expectations.
You’re cursed to be disappointed.
Everyone else seems to be satisfied with having lower standards, but only you can understand that the high expectations you hold are our minimum level of tolerance for what you encounter in your environment. Taurus demands excellence! Too bad no one is able to provide it consistently.
7. You’re independent.
Those born under Taurus believe they can take care of themselves – and usually, they’re right. You’re good with money and good at being alone. You can do everything on your own, even if people say you can’t! You also like to be on your own every now and then.
No one works harder than you, if you’re determined about something.
Taurus is very similar to the symbol for their sun sign; the Taurean bull is dedicated to pulling the plough and working the land to provide for the family. Taurus is the ultimate provider. Bills will be paid, and loved ones will be well fed, secure, and provided for in a Taurean household. Taurus is excellent with finances and is capable of being independent. Taurus is patient and able to delay gratification (sometimes), so they are likely to have a healthy retirement savings and have thoroughly researched investment options. Stability also pleases Taurus so they will look for work they can stay with for their entire career.
8. You’re prone to the occasional dramatic outburst.
If a Taurus lets too much frustration build up-which can happen particularly in bouts of extreme stubbornness-he or she can have trouble calmly dealing with all that emotion. Taurean people might look calm on the surface, but only a Taurus could understand the things that are churning away in our minds and bodies. Just because Taurus doesn’t seem to get emotional doesn’t mean that we aren’t capable of emotions. As a sign ruled by both Venus and the Moon, Taurus is an emotional wreck fairly often. Why can’t everyone else just be better at hiding it?
9. You’re generous.
While Taurus personalities tend to be frugal whenever possible, they’re more than happy to share their money (and belongings) with friends and family in times of need.
Your gifts are the best!
We’ve already mentioned how well Taurus does with finances, so in the rare instance that a Taurean is broke, it’s probably because they gave away all their stuff. Taurus loves to give. To show their love, Taurus wants you to have all the cool stuff that they have.
10. You may have a weird thing about needing to touch stuff.
Only a Taurus could understand that cashmere is the only acceptable form of wool to touch your skin. When it comes to shopping, fabric feel and comfort is as important as the look. You like to explore the world through your hands. If it isn’t something that can be touched in the physical world, you usually don’t care for it. If it’s an abstract concept or it’s in the future, you don’t need it.
11. You know how to balance your life.
You’re great at balancing your social life with your school life and everything else. You know the importance of making sure you take time for yourself too.
The way it was was perfect, but then you had to go and change things. You could not possibly understand how mad it makes Taurus when you change their routine and move things around. Taurus needs to be a master of their environment. Everything has a place and time. Taurus requires you to do it our way.
12. With you, loyalty is mandatory in a friend or romantic partner.
Taurus demands that you be dedicated to them and they will, in return, be dedicated to and possessive of you as well. In fact, Taurus may treat you a bit like their prized possession if you are their lucky romantic partner. Taurus loves attention and praise from their partner. If you can prove your devotion to Taurus, they will stand by you forever. Crossing a Taurus, on the other hand, may send you running for the hills. Taurus can hold a grudge like no other sign in the zodiac and those horns are very sharp and pointy.
