When we struggle to make sense of love, work, or our inner lives, it’s smart to turn to the stars. For many generations, the zodiac has been used to help people understand individual and universal experiences and make connections with friends and loved ones. The more you understand your zodiac sign, read your daily horoscope, and consider your birth chart, the more you can trust your instincts when it comes to making important choices, setting paths for the future, and even falling in love. It’s particularly helpful to look more closely at the traits of our sun signs — and today, we’ll explore everything there is to know about Taurus women.
The Traits of a Taurus Lady (April 20 to May 20)
People can identify as an Aries, a Gemini, or a Pisces, but the truth is that there’s a lot more to it than that. In addition to your sun sign, you’ll want to contemplate the personality traits associated with a sign’s element, modality, and ruling planet. Taurus is an earth sign, which means they have both feet planted on terra firma. Along with earth signs Capricorn and Virgo, Taurus signs are known for being grounded, which means they often have a plan and stick to it until they meet their goals.
Taurus also has a fixed modality, which is essentially doubling down on their grounded nature. Fixed signs, including Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius, are those that fall in the middle of the season, which is why they are known for being solid … and sometimes struggling during periods of change or discomfort. Part of that is because Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus, which is associated with love, passion, money, and beauty. Taurus is therefore an expert at creating a beautiful and rich life for herself, thus it’s little wonder why she doesn’t want to stray too far from home. While there are many common traits you can expect to find between two people of the same sun sign, they can also vary between the sexes. Below, you’ll find just a few of the typical traits shared by Taurus women.
Ambitious and Determined
Taurus may love her creature comforts, but she isn’t afraid to put in the hard work to get them. Because Taurus is a fixed earth sign, she has a plan, and she’s dedicated to seeing that plan through until she’s realized all of her goals. The ruling planet of Venus means that Taurus signs tend to be intelligent and forward-thinking when it comes to money, and it’s no surprise when her investments or plans pay out. In fact, Taurus is most at ease when she’s setting herself up for future stability and comfort.
Taurus women do need to watch out when that ambition gets out of hand. Taurus can sometimes put her blinders on when it comes to meeting her goals, making her come across as cold or difficult to reach. She isn’t, really — she just has her eyes set on the prize. If there’s one area where Taurus can use a little balance and softness, it’s here, but there’s no denying that all her ambition will pay off in the long run.
Kind and Sweet
If you are able to get below the surface of a Taurus female’s bullish exterior, you’ll find a kind woman whose stubbornness is just one piece of her puzzle. They don’t open up to new people easily, which means if you find yourself in the confidence of a Taurus, you’re among a lucky few.
In love and in friendship, Taurus takes her time, but she commits with her whole heart. If you’re not in all the way with a Taurus, it’s best to back out early, rather than let them get hurt. If you are in it for the long haul, pay attention to Taurus’ love language and be direct in your affection, whatever form it may take. This sign is also deeply loyal, both in friendship and in love. They protect and fight for their loved ones, and while this is typically a peaceful sign — think of a bull in the meadow — you don’t want to stick around once they start stamping their hooves..
Taurus is a Venus gal through and through, and not just because they love to love in a deep and fulfilling way. Taurus is also enticed and excited by life’s deeper and richer things, and work hard to create a sensual and comfortable life for themselves. This means Taurus loves anything that tickles the senses, so their homes are often filled with sweet-scented candles, fresh fruits, and bright flowers. Taurus women can also be passionate lovers, but it takes an emotional connection to get them in the mood. They’re not likely to strip down — emotionally or physically — until they feel seen, heard, and understood. Intimacy with a Taurus is deeply sensual and erotic, but it’s not likely to be adventurous or out of the box. Taurus likes spending time in her comfort zone at all stages of life.
Most of the time, Taurus is associated with the bull because of the bucolic landscape. Taurus does love a meadow of fresh spring flowers and sunshine, after all. There’s even the association with the bull of Wall Street, since Taurus is money-savvy and smart when it comes to her financial future. But if Taurus gets a reputation for being stubborn, well — bulls do know how to lock horns.
Taurus likes to think of herself as determined, and she’s not wrong. Her ambition and determination are inspiring, and she can achieve just about anything she wants. But there’s no doubt that Taurus knows how to dig her heels in when there’s something she doesn’t like or wants to do. Most often, this is when Taurus is asked to deviate from her routine or set path, since this zodiac loves her comfort zone and isn’t eager for change.
Taurus is also quick to defend a problematic romantic relationship or stay in one longer than she should. Taurean women take a long time to let someone into their spaces and hearts. Rather than look foolish, a Taurus woman in love will commit to her decisions. When it comes to setting boundaries and living their best lives, it’s therefore important for women born under this zodiac sign to find balance between sticking to their guns and dying on a hill they don’t really believe in.
Responsible and Reliable
Those born under the Taurus zodiac sign thrive on common sense and practicality. This sign is the one you can turn to if you need a resume looked over or help changing a tire. They feel most at ease when set up for success, which is why Taurus’ bag is always packed with tampons, makeup remover, pens, and band-aids. She loves to lie back and relax, but only when she knows her house is in order. Because Taurus is also such a loyal friend, she’s the person you can trust to have your back, even when it’s inconvenient. It takes some time to become that person for Taurus — they must protect their soft underbellies, after all. Still, once she lets you in, she’s yours for life.
Taurus women lead rich and fulfilling lives, but they do so without straying too far from their favorite fields. They thrive on sensuality, and love creating a home that serves as a sanctuary. Above all else, this sign knows how to run a very relaxing bath for herself, and other signs can definitely take notes on self-care.
Taurus isn’t a lazy person, however. In fact, this fixed earth sign is one of the hardest working, most responsible, and most reliable of all the zodiac signs. She’s always there when you need her, and she’s not afraid of taking on a challenge with just her wits and the contents of her well-stocked purse. Taurus doesn’t let people in easily, but once she decides you’re worthy, she’ll have your back 100 percent. Just remember, you’ll want to have her back with the same enthusiasm in return.
