Fact 1: Taurus’ are stubborn

One of the greatest weaknesses (and arguably - strengths) of the Taurus is their tendency to be incredibly stubborn. Think you can talk them into something? Think again, my friend. Being under the horoscope sign of a bull, they are just as likely to hold their ground and not be moved.

Fact 2: Taurus’ are simple (in a good way)

The Taurus tends to enjoy the simple things in life like working in the garden, snuggling on the couch in their favorite pajamas, and enjoying the company of their favorite people (even though their circle tends to be on the smaller side).

They are likely to love dogs because dogs are loyal and always happy to see them, which helps with the Taurus tendencies towards insecurity. They are likely to prefer spending time at home with their dog and significant other instead of spending the night out on the town.

Fact 3: Taurus’ love to cuddle

To a Taurus, touch tends to be extremely important to the way they experience life. This tends to mean that they need to snuggle with loved ones and they need lots of kisses and sensual touches from their lovers.

Disclaimer: they ONLY want to cuddle with the people they’re close to. They tend to be very affectionate in romantic relationships and feel the most loved when physical attention is granted to them.

Myth 1: Taurus’ aren’t very smart

Some people may have the idea that the simple nature of the Taurus makes them the least intelligent zodiac sign. While the Taurus may be less intelligent than other signs (maybe), this doesn’t make them unintelligent. On the contrary, the Taurus is just as likely to be very intelligent as most signs. Taurus’ tend to be methodical and to take their time – that doesn’t make them stupid, it just makes them more thorough with their tasks.

Myth 2: Taurus’ are rude

The Taurus’ tendency towards being stubborn, possessive, and uncompromising tend to make them come across as rude at times. However, Taurus’ are incredibly reliable, patient, and responsible – none of which are rude in the slightest.

Myth 3: Taurus’ are materialistic

While the Taurus does tend to be a bit high maintenance when it comes to their clothes (they tend to prefer high-quality clothes and dislike synthetic fibers), this doesn’t make them materialistic with EVERYTHING. They are basically only a bit snobbish when it comes to their clothes because they are personally picky, it has nothing to do with you or social status and is, therefore, not that materialistic. Plus, they don’t tend to be materialistic about their possessions, only what they wear and frankly, they’re allowed to be.
