Facts About Taurus You Should Know, (But Don't) According To Astrology

In astrology, Taurus is the second zodiac sign, and its symbol is recognized by the sign of the bull. And just like a bull, the Taurus personality can be very unpredictable. So, if you're born between April 20 and May 20, you are a Bull!

Taurus will definitely surprise you with their patience and stability, seeming more level-headed than most other zodiac signs. As one of the Earth signs, they are known to bring a very calming and relaxing vibe to whoever they are with. Unfortunately, most people tend to focus on their negative attributes and assume that's what they're all about.

There are a lot of things the Taurus zodiac sign doesn't like: insecurities, sudden changes, or complications. But there are just as many things they love, especially friends and family.

For every single weakness of a Taurus sign, there are two strengths. Rather than perceiving them as the rough and tough stereotype, focus on other traits and learn something new about one of the best zodiac signs. 

1. One of the best Taurus traits is their calm attitude.

Several people equate the Taurus to an out of control bull in a china shop. In general, Taurus is a pretty is a very calm person. Earth, their ruling element, helps keep them grounded and calm during stressful situations.

That being said, this element can also cause them to be a little stubborn and get frustrated when it comes to getting out of their usual schedule. When this happens, Taurus might become a little frustrated, but they work very hard to avoid these situations.

2. This zodiac sign isn't lazy.

Indulging in some luxury every once in a while is no big deal. When it comes to the texture and textile-lover that is the Taurus, living lavish might happen more often than not. These aren't free rides, though; they work extremely hard to be able to live the kind of life they enjoy most.

Being surrounded by high-quality products and accessories means hard work and dedication to get it. The Bull will use their power to indulge in the things they love. Their love for gardening, cooking, and pretty much any handy work also proves their worth when it comes to their dedication.

3. If Taurus wants to be your friend, it may take some time.

It seems that Taurus can't be bothered to talk or go out to get lunch with you. This isn't the case, however. Taurus would love to spend time with you, but they have to get to know you first. They tend to move with caution, not committing to something fully before they've had a few very calculated thoughts.

Because they like to take their time, it can make others think they're being shut out or ignored. If you stick around for a little, you'll end up making a friend for life. They just need to be alone sometimes, and that's okay. 

4. They are more than materialistic.

Everyone can appreciate the finer things in life. Having a closet full of nice clothing and accessories shouldn't take away from the other aspects of the Taurus.

While they decide to buy the finer things, they also decide to work hard so they deserve them, and share these things with their loved ones. A wardrobe of designer clothing isn't worth it if close friends and family aren't there to share it with them. 

5. And Taurus also isn't overly possessive.

Some people become part of the bull's comfort zone. When they have built this circle of very important people, they become protective of them. They just want consistency, security, and honesty in all friendships and relationships.

Making sure everyone they care about is doing okay is their personal goal. When things stray from this, it can get a little intense, but your friend is just worried about you. Once they see things from your point of view, it'll become a lot easier, and they'll seem less possessive and more supporting.
