Have you been in any china shops lately? Witnessed the smashing of plates, the tossing of horns? It would be a mistake to be seduced into complacency by a Taurean woman’s docile, big brown eyes and long lovely lashes. This sign can attack, but only if provoked by one too many a red flag. She has a hot and fiery temper, and will unleash it when pushed to the limits; however Taurus women are generally sweet natured, with a liking for pretty little objects of affection. A personal serenade or some exotic orchids would do the trick nicely.
Taureans are also persistent, sometimes determinedly so, obstinate in the face of adversity, and stubborn to the point of utter exasperation. This ability to hang on through tough times and bad, as well as her emotional strength, make Taurean women a force to be reckoned with. Some celebrity Taureans rushing headlong into the limelight include Cher, the Empress Catherine II of Russia, and Penelope Cruz.
Understanding Taurus Woman
The Taurus woman is tender and caring and she may have some firm opinions that can’t be changed - but that can also equate to strength of character. This is the second sign in the Zodiac and spring is in full bloom when the Taurus celebrates her birthday.
She is sensible and patient – very winning qualities. Taurus element is earth, and Taurus Woman could be described as the original earth mother. True to her symbol, the Bull, she can be placid but also stubborn, and an explosive temper lurks underneath that though slow to ignite, is tumultuous when it comes.
But the Taurus temper is rarely seen, for Taurus Woman aims for balance in life. She loves nature and desires nothing more than to live in comfortable and colorful surroundings.
Although she is clever, she is not interested in proving herself an intellectual for the sake of it and will be content to let her friends shine while she provides the convivial surroundings in which to do it.
She likes security, so she will go through life planting and nurturing seeds like a devoted mother, and she will patiently wait for them to take root.
Because she is basically unadventurous, change can be a threat to her. She is more likely to get into a rut, preferring to preserve the status quo, so that any change that happens in her life usually comes from outside. However, whatever experiences life brings to her she learns quickly from them and is unlikely to make the same mistake twice.
Taurus is ruled by docile Venus, and is a passive, feminine sign. Her appeal is luring, earthy sensuality and practicality. Her main challenge is to learn to share.
Love & Taurus Woman
The bull loves treats and will respond to sweetness and light much better than to whips and shackles. A Taurus woman is true and steady and may appear a little undemonstrative. Nothing could be further from the truth! Remember that fiery temper of hers? There is passion lying underneath the calm and stable facade, she simply has not unlocked it for the entire world to see. Taureans can sometimes be in love with blinkers on and be completely focused on their love life. Passionate and always tender, Taurus Woman is seductive and will pamper her partner both in the bedroom and out of it. She will take her time in a relationship and needs to be wooed. She wants to get to know her partner and will not commit until she is sure she has made the right choice. She does get jealous, but only if really provoked.
Affectionate and sensual, a Taurus woman enjoys the romantic thrill of courtship, but rarely rushes into a relationship. Her relationships may take quite a while to get off the ground, because she thinks carefully about all the ramifications of intimacy with her partner before she commits herself. Some Taurus women can date someone for some time, and her partner feels everything is going well, when in fact she may not have made up her mind. She is very generous with her partner, and although Taurus is known for being somewhat self-centered, she in fact often puts the needs of someone she loves above her own. She doesn’t require as much excitement as other women, and she offers a relationship that is constant and comforting. It’s very difficult to truly anger the Taurus woman, as she has a way of shrugging off things that others might react to negatively. She is nurturing and cares for her loved ones in a surprisingly romantic way, given her logical way of dealing with the rest of her life. However, she has her limits, and her loved ones must learn what these are, and strive to never push beyond them. The gentle, thoughtful demeanor they have grown accustomed to can transform into a driving force of fury.
When it comes to attraction, Taurus’ secret weapon is serenity. There is a composed, peaceful, and patient quality to Taurus that is unmistakable and irresistible to many. Potential suitors sense that she’s solid, never desperate or overly needy, and genuine. More often than not, Taurus women are described as "real" or even "the real thing". She’s not flashy, yet she makes a statement. She’s sensual and feminine yet firm and strong-minded. There’s an extremely soothing aura surrounding Taurus that is really quite rare in a world seemingly filled with stressed-out people. It’s easy to trust a Taurus, and to count on her.
In a pinch, Taurus will rarely engage in a messy argument, although she does have a legendary temper if completely provoked. If cornered, her refusal to "go there" might be a little frustrating at first, but usually wins her "the argument that never was". Why fight with someone who seems above it all? You’ll only wind up feeling silly and appearing excessively emotional in contrast. She is good at walking out if she feels you’re blowing things out of proportion. She firmly believes that the best revenge is silence. And, she’s probably right.
She’s expert at scoping out a new person in her life, although she rarely comes across as the type of person who questions and doubts. Instead, she seems to be a great listener. While she’s rarely gushing, she offers solid advice and support. Taurus takes quite a bit of time to let a lover into her heart, but when she does, she can be unstinting. She’ll defend you to death, if the need arises. In fact, she comes alive when she needs to defend or protect a loved one.
Relationships & Taurus Woman
There are few signs more committed and devoted than a Taurean woman. She would make a perfect partner for the right person. Taking it slow and easy, she will stay the course until the fruits of her labors blossom into the relationship she wants. This perseverance is noted in every aspect of her life, but it is with her lover that the Taurean will be most tenacious. She enjoys the closeness of relationships and thrives on affection and intimacy. The Taurus woman also loves being right and is usually too willful to change her mind about that, so you best practice the art of appeasement when required. She is most compatible with Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, and Pisces.
She can be a little reserved around those she doesn’t know, but that doesn’t mean she ever lets herself be taken out of the game.
The nurturing ways of a Taurus woman make her a great giver in any relationship as long as her partner is committed to the union and makes her feel secure and protected. Treat her improperly and you’ll see the tenacity of her personality in full force. She can give the cold shoulder like no one else. She may seem quiet and subdued at times, but not when it comes to protecting what she claims as hers.
Friendships & Taurus Woman
Do you remember those high school friends who said "Best Friend Forever" and signed off with kisses in your yearbook? Chances are, ten years down the line, those friends from high school who are still your BFF will be Taurean women. The bull takes friendships seriously, and she is constant, loyal, and devoted. In return, all she asks is that you remain as true to the herd as she is to you and all will be well. Taurus women typically don’t need hordes of friends, as quality over quantity is her motto, and this extends to most areas of her life, not only friendships. She will ignore people she doesn’t like rather than try to pick a fight with them, and doesn’t go out of her way to rouse up that sleeping temper.
Career & Taurus Woman
Because of her sometimes expensive taste the Taurus woman is prepared to give her all in return for a good salary upon which she can rely, working overtime when necessary and giving her full commitment. She is not usually an innovator or a natural leader, but she is a hard worker. Dependable and persevering, the Taurus woman excels in whatever task she takes on. With a creative eye and enjoying the stability of a day-to-day routine, she would do well as a florist or antique collector.
But this lady loves money, so combining that with her positive characteristics and the Taurus woman is ideally suited for positions in banking, stockbrokerage, insurance agencies, accounting and real estate. Give her a million dollar home to decorate and sell and this woman will think she’s died and gone to Heaven. But the list does continue: teacher, herbalist, chef, doctor, architect, musician, caregiver.
While a Taurus is capable of following orders and can be wedged back in the corner of an office doing data entry, there will always be a reason for taking this type of job. She can stay in one job for a long time because she knows that only by being patient will the job description evolve and the pay increase steadily. Security is important to a Taurus - flash usually isn’t. Those Taureans in managerial positions aren’t usually fiery leaders, but they are stalwart and competent – excellent traits for leading the employees.
Money & Taurus Woman
The Taurus woman is generally good at finance, and giving financial advice. She knows how to work the system and get the best out of it. She is not a wasteful spender, but she does like luxurious living. However, she will not risk her security to fund it. She would much rather do without than put at risk the security of her lifestyle she values so much.
She’s not greedy, but can be materialistic and strives for a financially secure lifestyle. Investments will be sound choices offering the comfort of safe returns over any risk ventures.
Being practical, this woman will look for good value on purchases, but won’t sacrifice quality to save a few pennies. Go cheap on the lady and you might find your gift in the garbage and replaced with one she bought herself.
Family & Taurus Woman
Taurus Woman is an excellent mother, but she does expect obedience and good behavior from her children. She doesn’t like laziness either, so children with a Taurus mom can expect to be kept on their toes. That being said, she will be their best friend their whole lives through and will teach them her own strength and resilience, and protect them from whatever the outside world chooses to throw at them.
Taurus women have many fond memories of their childhood and often carry on many of the traditions of their family. She is loyal to family members but will go her own way in certain areas if it suits her purpose. She is not easily swayed if her mind is made up. She is sentimental to a degree, but not to the point of becoming controlled by it. After all, she is very practical.
The Taurus woman loves nature and the outdoors, but rather than the wild randomness of uncultivated land she likes to be among well-ordered fields, orchards, and vineyards. She takes a great, fulfilling pride in a beautiful garden, especially a tasteful mix of productive vegetables and fruits with lovely flowers. Even the urban Taurus woman’s home reflects her strong connection to the earth, with earthy colors, combinations, and touches.
Health & Taurus Woman
Taurus rules the throat, and Taurus women tend to have musical and melodious voices. Their throats might also be vulnerable. They should take care not to become too stressed or worried, as this can result in insomnia and depression. She needs to retain balance in her life and it’s important not only for her mental health but also her physical health that she does this.
Fashion & Taurus Woman
Far from wallowing in the mud, the Taurus woman is in reality a little bit of a label snob. She loves the finest imported fabrics and only buys quality clothes. Tailor-made suits are an investment because she understands that the perfect fit will never go out of style. Practical, classy, and tasteful, Taureans prefer embellished flats to silly stilettos, and impeccably cut pants to miniskirts. They love accessories that highlight their best features, often their graceful necks, and own necklaces and scarves by the dozens. Subtle and smart, this Earth sign favors neutral colors like cream, ivory, and khaki, accented by rich browns or luscious gold.
Her main gemstone is the emerald. Emeralds are especially appropriate worn as necklaces because the body part ruled by Taurus is the neck. Emeralds have traditionally been associated with loyalty, belief in immortality, love, and faith. Her main color is green. Taurus generally looks best in earthy colors, denim, and white. She looks at clothes (and people) in terms of how they might feel to the touch, and even if an outfit looks fabulous, if it doesn’t feel fabulous next to her skin, she’ll avoid it. Interestingly too, she usually sniffs out new clothes, and is more aware than most about how certain fabrics absorb smells!
She sticks to her favorite clothes and jewelry, and many a Taurus woman will own more than one of each of these favorite pieces. If she finds the perfect fit and style of jeans, for example, she’ll go back and buy a second pair in case something happens to the first, rather than risk trying a new style. While Taurus can pull off a lot, she doesn’t look good in boxy or uncomfortable-looking clothes. She loves fresh, uncomplicated, and clean scents, and is the first to notice an unusual or offending smell.
