Five Need To Know Taurus Personality Traits

Taurus people can be difficult. Renowned for their tactile sensuality and resolute calm, they will nonetheless default to obdurate stubbornness if under pressure. Knowing these five baseline traits will help you handle any Taurus, under more or less any circumstance.


They are extremely attached to their possessions. Don’t fuq with their stuff. Your taking of even a minor Taurean item is a boundary violation to them. Taurus Moon people are particularly inclined this way. Not fuqing with the stuff of a Taurus ranges from not stealing their Porsche to not moving their toothpaste from its usual position.


They feel stressed by people who insist on neurotic, complex dialogue when food, money, or sex will do just as quickly. Their thought process follows a flow chart that first checks whether they need to alert the authorities and then if eating, spending or orgasm will help. 


They are more similar to their fellow Fixed signs than you might think. They are a more sensual version of Aquarius or like a Leo without the stage presence. Taurus is a lot more like this lot than you might think. They don’t invest in being seen as “weird” or “unconventional,” but they’re completely capable of adhering to a unique belief system. Don’t confuse their placid demeanor with complacency. 


Taurus does not like spontaneity OR for things to be scheduled. Both fuq with the Tao Of Taurus. Some call this control-tripping – Taurus says it’s Zen. If Taurus says they’re doing ‘nothing’ on a Saturday night, that’s not an invitation to in-fill their time.


Music is a way into their heart – you’d think it was food but they won’t trust you to cook/choose a restaurant. You know they love you when they give you music. Never criticize their musical taste.

  1. i have a taurus friend, aquarius moon , we’re not in the same city. her bday is on the 19th of may ; any suggestions?

  2. lol.
    I’m a Taurus Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, with Leo rising, Aquarius moon.. and Leo NN.

    This post makes me laugh.. I never know which part of me to blame, but now I know, it’s all the same. I’m not even a particularly materialistic Taurus ( I thought that must’ve been the Aq. moon) .. i can’t stand too much stuff and clutter everywhere. I’ve been trying to practice minemalism, but I have too many crafty projects and cooking utensils that I neeeed and clothes.. i work in an awesome vintage clothes shop.

    But I am on the path to getting rid of having so much shite. Must be the Toro Zen that so desperately needs peace and calm and tranquil and no stuff everywhere. sigh.

    ‘Taurus does not like spontaneity OR for things to be scheduled.’ haaaa…. this is 100% true. God we must be annoying. My mum always called me ‘contrary’. I just prefer to do what I like when I want to. I’m never hurting anyone. I am very much just trying to keep to myself. Peeps be too demanding sometimes.

    The anxiety that comes with having to stick to plans, or walking into someone elses plan is gross. yuk. No wonder the world is so stressed. Look at the crap most people put themselves throught because of ‘obligation’ and ‘making plans’. Fuq that. How can you know how you’re going to feel next thursday at 8? I know where i’ll be. In bed.

  3. “Taurus does not like spontaneity OR for things to be scheduled. Both fuq with the Tao Of Taurus. Some call this control-tripping – Taurus says it’s Zen.”

    It’s my way or the highway. They rival Aquarius for always being right and Scorpio for never being wrong.

  4. I don’t think playing hard to get will work with Taurus. They aren’t the type to go chasing after someone, more than likely. Taurus is loyal, and expects the same from his people, so it doesn’t matter how long it has been. If you show you are still one of his people, he should respond. Just call him.

  5. * Don’t crap on with neurotic complex dialogue when food, money or sex will do just as easily.

    Yup. I wish my virgo man would get this…………

  6. I’m a Libran with Taurus Moon and so I suppose that makes me emotionally feel comfy/have a habit of being methodical, reliable, grounded, earthy, leisure-prone lifestyle, into god quality clothes/food/people/music.

    1. you are so venusian!!! 🙂 Where’s your Toro moon.

      I have venus in Libra in 9th (big on justice and I fall for people with accents) and Jupiter in Toro in 4th house. Home is very important to me. My favourite place to hang is the sofa!! 🙂

  7. That was me above. I do know what you mean about respecting a guy who can follow through if he’s interested. I’m Aries with Mars in Aries so a confident man of action appeals to me.

  8. The truth about taurus is theyre supposed to be reliable, like good food and clothes/ fashion, but I dont believe in star signs.

  9. Ok Toro’s.. what are your feelings on being given gifts from a lover? This thread is teaching me so much about my toro/gem.

    1. Gift advice for Toros:

      #1: Buy nice or buy twice, obvs.

      #2: nothing wrong with a solid practical useful gift / one that saves the person money down the road and shows you care about his/her security/wellbeing / etc

      1. I have north node Taurus and this gift advice is exactly correct. Gift giving from my family is TRIGGERING!!!!!!

  10. This is all making me feel sorry for the Taurean wife who Saggy man whore who likes to piss off in a multitude of ways. It sounds like making Taureans upset would be pretty easy, but his rebellion (one of many) is by spending a ton on strippers whenever he gets sent to Vegas on business. She retorts with an extravagant closet of essential gifts for herself and the kids. I can only imagine she keeps him because she imagines he’s something someone else wants. LOL!

  11. Sorry, but I can’t with Taurus.
    Disclaimer: Unless they are super haute bulls & aphrodites, completely self-actualised and zen. Those few are like mystical energy fields of quiet movement, a torus in fact.
    I do believe most of the Toro’s who love astrology and haunt the halls of this forum are these haute bovines.
    But those that are lo Toro Sun, can be dyed-in -the-wool stick-in-the-muds. So obsessed with their own pleasure and not at all interested in the common good. Their fixity probably plagues me as I am Gem Rising but with Sun Leo, Moon Scorp. I feel like I act all floopy, but am actually really quite fixed myself. So when a really rigid person confronts me with their implacable, ‘that’s how I am’ness, it boggles my mind.

    But so many Taureans are creative that it astounds me. Musical to the extreme – the last three muso’s I met were all Taureans. And amazing every one. They have the determination and stick-to-it-ness to that the ethereal requires to materialise itself on this plane.

    I love this idea of the Taurus being a bit like the other signs, would love to see this explanation of the other signs also!

  12. Can this be true for someone with a north node in taurus???? … I hate it when people touch my stuff, i get very pissed off, to the point where I will declare war. I’m also aware if someone is intruding in my space when im not around. I love sharing music, food and books particularly if i really like someone. I also find it difficult to have a balanced life, i like routine but then i get bored with it and prefer spontaneity, then i feel the urge to get back into a routine when life feels too overwhelming and thus the cycle continues.The only other taurus thing is my lillth. overall I have sun in gemini, ascendant in cancer, moon in cap. so relating to the above, is it my north node in taurus that is connecting to these aspects?

  13. Anony_Aus/Lux Interior is My Co-Pilot

    Yeah…espesh the “Do not fuq with their stuff”. The Taurean hoarder in my family is a case in point.

    They know where it is. They know if it’s been moved.

  14. Taurus Sun, Moon and Mars with Saturn,Venus, Chiron and Lilith in Pisces, hence the mud. Gem asc…I can talk to you about anything, cook you the best dinner you’ve ever had, and then fuq you until your eyes roll back into your head. Most men run Do NOT try and schedule every minute of my life, my ex-husband tried that and yeah, note the ex. I like spontaneity as long as I’m not doing my time is mine Zen thing! Gem asc helps with this I think. If I send you music you have a hook in my heart but if you don’t get it..well, there are other fishermen in the sea. Great post Mystic!

  15. Raché (Aqua/Tauri)

    OMG thank you. I feel that Taureans are way misunderstood sometimes. Yeah, we’re easy to spot because of the stereotypically true Taurean traits, but so many descriptions of Taurus act as if this is all there us to Taurus, neglecting the deeper picture under the surface.

    “Taurus does not like spontaneity OR for things to be scheduled. Both fuq with the Tao Of Taurus. Some call this control-tripping – Taurus says it’s Zen.”
    is so. dead. on.

    And yes, you know that I have love for you if you get music, a book, interesting journal articles, or food. Or a letter, handwritten.

  16. xox rockstar libran publicist xox

    TAURUS moon

    if one thing is moved in mon over-stacked abode
    (supporter of maximalism as an interior style – empty white boxes are for vVrgos…………)

    any moved object (even by 1cm) glares harder than a misspelt word on a screen
    (am dyslexic) & a writer (not a publicist – but Mystic coined that monicker in 99 on her old blog – when that, last century, was my daily toil)

    back to post in hand
    TAURUS hate having their shit touched
    idea messed with
    dont fuck with it

    PS daveyl if you’re out there
    FINALLY after 10 years – got Le Ram’s stats

    Aries with TAURUS rising
    plus (not that he’s astro savvy, nor for the matter am I) – he only knows he LOVES LIBRANS (me / father / son) & HATES Bulls!!

    can attest if one thing in his compound is moved by 1cm – BOTH of us will notice

    moral to story – don’t fug with a bull – not an idea / don’t take over their concept & most of all – do NOT rearrange their shit

    without permission!!



    1. Raché (Aqua/Tauri)

      I get very upset whenever I can’t FIND something or if someone has taken something without asking. Me and my dad (Taurus sun) both freak when our stuff gets messed with at all. If someone has so much as opened a drawer to his desk even without disturbing anything, he knows. Taureans have a psychic connection to their stuff. lol

      His siblings tell stories about how when he was a kid he would take all the balls and collect them in a pile then guard them instead of playing with the other kids and get pissed whenever anyone messed with them or tried to take them. Classic Taurus.

      1. Le Ram – ironically – has a passion for Taurus bashing!!

        his significant ex pre me is one
        as is his former best friend, now no longer an acquaintance (sad)

        however his biz partner is
        & I have T – moon

        so to discover his T rising was not only hilarious but telling

        he goes SPARE when can’t find something (sawed by decades of hard living deteriorating memory) – combined with lives in a compound – stuff everywhere

        any possession broken or lost is re referred to ongoing

        funnily – when something goes missing in the compound – he asks me to ‘do that thing that you do’ – its become a sport – intuitive exercising in a way – after asking myself does said object ‘feel lost’ – if answer is Y – can usually divine location within the rambling piles of STUFF housed in the compound!

        so yes – agree entirely!!

  17. Oh my. Dead on. Music can be a spiritual thing but if I really care about you, I’ll give Art. One fellow I was deeply in love with I commissioned an artist for a drawing of his other love which was a plane. Lovely drawing with full on top of the line framing. Caught up with the same love 20 years later and he was still telling me I was the best lover he’d ever had.

  18. I’ve known two Toros, both very different.

    One was a little witch who seduced the head of the department and attempted to control everyone through him. When he became engaged to another woman, she got him sacked. Then she tried to seduce the new boss and she ended up sacked. She sued the company for sexual harrassment and lost.

    Toro two was a wonderful male friend who I swear was my brother in another life. Instant connection from minute one. He played guitar and when he sang sounded EXACTLY like James Taylor! He was also a canny hunter – deer came to him as if they were summoned. Never a shortage of venison.

  19. hiddendragonqueen

    ah music. from the heart to the heart. true- it is not to be shared with anyone less than worthy. and while my gem stuff sees everything in shades of grey, in matters of the heart toro fixedly knows only black and white.

    2 toro moons splitting up: plenty of stuff for both. each had a very clear sense of what is whose, and respected that intrinsically. until it got to the kitchen- biggest fights in the whole deal were over the cast iron collection and mortars and pestles. the record collection has yet to be divided… i think we can both see the drama it will entail and neither of us have the energy to go through that at the moment. plus i sense he’s not completely over me and it’s a way of holding on.

    1. hiddendragonqueen

      i adore the sensuality, but i don’t think i could go for a toro man even though my m-v are there. so HAIRY. ewwww!

  20. Caught up with Uncle Toro the other night at family do.
    The first thing he always asks is something to do with his garden – as im a gardener, the other night it was ”how do you make your grass look really bright green, lush and soft ?” Just to mess with him i said ”conditioner and combing”
    Asked him did he miss not having a boat, he replied ”you know what boat stands for ? Bring Out Another Thousand”
    We meet up for final talks on his Sagg daughters wedding on the weekend, (She’s marrying a Columbian Piscean she met in Spain ! – tres Sagg !)
    His first wife – Saggies mum was there, a beautiful Katakan, she made a carb coma feast (plus short soup for moi who doesnt eat meat), he was showing her a photo on his phone, and she asked to borrow his glasses, you could see him jolt back, then reluctant;y hand them over..i had to not laugh.
    He bought a lovely notebook that his Cappie (2nd) wife had made lists of things to ask/check on.
    Gemmie sister informed me the only ”notes” he took was ”2.30″ – the time he has to be 2 blocks, yes he bought a place 2 blocks away, at his Piscean mums home (our Nans) for photos ! Looks like his Cappie wife will be writing the speech ! Mind you, he gives great bear/bull hugs and always smells yummo.
    He is incredibly generous with my boys school fundraising events, often kicking in $200…Love him dearly, and love hearing him laugh, he loses all composure and really lets rip, also loves pulling ranks on people, and just got a new puppy (so his other dog doesnt get lonely) that is allowed to sleep on the bed!…great with animals, tight as a ducks butt with his daughters.

  21. Here’s what I have in Taurus, my 2nd house, all of which are getting some serious saturn barbell action. Sun, Jupiter, Pallas, Vesta, Moon – and all this bookended by Venus & Chiron on one end, Mercury at 0 gem on the other side. Astro’s been intense. The Scorping, bloody hell.

    I don’t seem to mind if the toothpaste gets moved, as long as you can tell me exactly where you put it. Everything else above seems pretty spot-on.

    Spontaneity will drive a Taurus moon bats if it’s not his or own idea, and on the scheduling side this works a little better but only if you keep the schedule loose and light. Flexibility is the key, which seems paradoxical to Taurus’ Fixity / Stubbornness, until you think about how flexibility allows your dear Taurus a degree of control. And yes, like Aquarius, control is comfort. Nothing to be proud of, but it’s still true.

    1. Shinefromtheinside

      J – You are so right about the Taurus Moon! My moon is in Taurus and if I choose when/how/where to be spontaneous it’s all good… but if someone else does… oh geeze… it’s really hard for me!! If there are options, then I’m better with it all!

      Oh and I keep my own separate tube of toothpaste! 😉

  22. Taurus Rules:

    1. Don’t fuq with my stuff.
    2. It’s ALL my stuff.
    3. Don’t bother me with your stuff. If I cared about it, it would still be MY stuff.

  23. This was great, so spot on! Taurus / Virgo rising here.

    That bit about schedules and spontaneous happenings… Omg could anything be more true? It’s like, just LET it happen- im the most dependable person you will ever know- if I’m 10 minutes late for work, it’s cause I needed to redo my eyeliner! Or get coffee from that place that’s always got a line! Or have morning sex with my hot ass Gemini husband! DUH peon brains

    And yes, we love money. I hoarde it and I blow it on insanely lavish things that other people find ridiculous but are jealous of. The story of my life really… Stuff & men that others can’t have and want.

    1. Raché (Aqua/Tauri)

      I didn’t fully comprehend understand the “Leo sans stage presence” bit until I read your comment. This is awesome.

      I think Taureans are probably like the most snobbyish of the zodiac in a way, yeah? Like we IDENTIFY with our stuff and our taste in stuff. Leo can be superficially flashy, yes, and Capricorn likes status but has — in my opinion — a very earthy, grounded, and ironic/humorous side as well. But Taurus thinks their taste is superior even if it’s in something cheap because it’s THEIR opinion, so you MUST only try it and then OF COURSE you will love it.

      Taurean tip #361: Never say “no thanks” to something a Taurus’s cooked and is offering you. They will automatically hate you. lol

      1. Omg- YES I found myself being at several of my very close friends for becoming vegetarians because It ruined my insane desire to cook French food!? then I took it as a personal challenge and learned to cook gourmet vegetarian out of spite… And ended up converting myself? Who does that lol!!
        I am a total snob. IA with you totally. Leo’s have good taste but throw way too many temper tantrums. I find capricorns (women anyway) to be a bore an incredibly socially off putting. Like… A dress from tj Maxx if that makes any sense.

        I love being a Taurus. We are like ancient Greeks. 🙂

  24. Catherine-the-grateful

    I have Sun, Mercury, Venus in Taurus, with Gemini rising. I have no problem with people with people tocuhing my stuff, or my money, I’ve always been more “whats mine is yours” about my stuff, BUT dont touch my food! haha If I find out those awesome leftovers got eaten, or you’ve trespassed my sacred chocolate stash, watch out!
    Always wondered why I get along with leos so well, and have always felt secretly more scorpio (that could be my Scorpio mars/Saturn/ conjuction though)
    The Gemini rising makes me much too impatient to carry on like a typical steady Taurus though. I have a best friend who is very Tauro, and the pace at which she opperates infuriates me sometimes!

    1. I am still stumped on how to figure out the rising sign. I know what mine is based on but for my Toro / Gem guy I don’t have his time. Does that matter/ He is right on the cusp. Just curious because what you say is very much like him.

  25. Perfect timing!! Yes, my toro/gem communicates thru music. It can be a little sad when he posts things on FB when he is trying to release a past heart break. What do they want when they communicate like that. He doesn’t give up his money AT all unless it is for himself or his mother. Routine is definitely not his thing and I am good with that. I wonder what he is like in a committed relationship? I just can’t do the kinky talk to him that he wants!! LOL!! After 3 years I am failing with the interview!!

    1. Sounds like he’s fishing with that musical prose. Seek him out. Nothing sexier in this world than a woman unafraid to be the courtier on occasion. and a most importantly give a hug. don’t try to control him or corral him with trivial stern ultimatums. And affection. But assuming you’re a virgo it won’t be an issue 😉 and honey, music is our mercury in matters of the heart.

      1. As Taureans age, they evolve! They become more tolerant, accepting and forgiving. So if you fuq with them, they’ll overlook your shortcomings! And we are the snobbiest sign because we know class when we see/feel/smell/hear it! Did someone say that we’re the most sensual astro sign?

        1. Smudge, that is what I have noticed with him. Although it has been stressful for me getting to know him and going thru my life challenges, every time we breakup he gets more open. Maybe me too. I feel very safe with him and that is tuff for a Virgo.

      2. I like your thinking Gren! Enjoying my time with him!! Its been a bit stressful but I think I am catching on to what he wants after 3 Years and 3 breakups. Let’s see what happens. 🙂

  26. Holy shit. I just kind of realised i’m Saturn in Taurus in the 6th. I freaking loathe people touching my stuff. If it happens i sanitise it. I probably give some sort of horrified nostril-flare curl-of-contempt-lip look. I locked the new cabinets and drawers at my office only once, then realised that noone goes into them anyway. I think they know.

    They know about my major food stash: i have cleared out a whole section – no files, no folders, no office bullshit, just my emergency food. Every day is an emergency. My colleagues like to come and have a gander at the food section occasionally – they find it funny. Then again, I always share food and good coffee. If someone forgets their lunch and has no time to buy any due to appointments, i’m the first to give them food. The thought of anyone starving is terrible. But the thought of me starving is also stressful: i never say help yourself. I offer service.

      1. No. I, too, have Taurus in the 6th. I serve through food, art, music, and good atmosphere. The thought of handing someone bad coffee horrifies me.

        Saturn may simply indicate that her workplace/daily routine (Sat/Cap) is where the primary commitment is. Or where the stuckness happens.

        But the sixth house is a personal house –still below the horizon. It’s all personal below the horizon.

        Who made that rule, anyway? Saturn isn’t a personal planet so it must not affect you, personally? Holy cow. I could write a book about how Saturn’s affected me, personally. Nothing like boundaries!

        Do you subscribe to the idea that Pluto is no longer a planet, too? And therefore has no force in a chart? I’m curious.

        1. “Who made that rule, anyway? Saturn isn’t a personal planet so it must not affect you, personally?” I’m with you. I think Saturn impacts people pretty directly. I mean, its part of the cross of self (Aries/Mars), home (Cancer/Moon), partner (Libra/Venus), and career (Capricorn/Saturn). I could crap on and on about Saturn!

          1. hiddendragonqueen

            yes i agree. saturn underlies everything. i think about him as the “below you” card in the celtic cross. as personal as it gets!

      2. Saturn’s not personal? Could i watch while you tell a Scorpio that?

        And yes the 6th house is terribly personal. It’s how you comport yourself daily, not just in front of others but with yourself. How you groom, dress, eat, manage time, go about your tasks, interact with your nearest and dearest, nurture and consider the people regularly in your sphere…all the choices you make about your day to day, say so much about who you are. And i think this is why some say the 6th is the house of magic. It is personal and not performed on a whim but honed through years of practice. The way you live is like a daily prayer. I suppose i consider it my duty to do my best in that regard, and i try to do everything properly. That is why i loathe people touching my stuff. They can be careless and do not get the personal magic you have imbued your things with. In addition, Saturn is transiting in opposition to my natal Saturn at some future point, and it feels rather urgent that i get this sector right. Already, my progress has somehow unearthed some powerful 12th house Scorpion stuff. I don’t know how this works but i knew it would be the key because i’m too used to coping with intense happenings, sudden grief and loss, dramatic things. I think some of how i have coped is locked in aspects of mundane habit, but it is hard for me to see just by thinking about it. I have to do it differently and do it every (fqing) day and learn the joy of it. And i get now that i have real Mutable freedom if i can do this right. Saturn is not society’s structure; it’s yours, it’s down in your very bones and how you treat your very self, body, stuff and work. I believe it is also carried by your ancestors, and that could even be DNA based as much as family habits. So yeah, Saturn is personal, deeply and chronically personal, in my view.

  27. Accurate and succinct!
    You forgot to mention, the SENSUALITY bit! If you want a Taurean, make sure you know how to KISS! It’s called foreplay. If you can’t spend the better part of a night kissing, don’t bother with a Taurus. We don’t like to be rushed…..on anything! And, even though we might not be so verbal….doesn’t mean we don’t know what we want. Did I mention that we love “words” and can be seduced with eloquent emails!!!

  28. ? Alter ? (@AlterEgoTrip_Se)

    This is very informative, I would say I see the similarity of the Scorpio vibe brought down to an extremely earthly, physical level. I am entangled in my life with too many people who have Mars in Taurus. I am surrounded, my husband, my mother, my former best friends even.. a current close friend.

    My son is Sun in Taurus, my husband, who is Sun in Gemini has Mars in Taurus as well as Mercury in there, in the 12th house being totally his Asc ruler (since we SHARE that)

    Another close friend who has no planets or points on Taurus (as I) have been pondering the entire Taurus thing for a very long time. His wife also like my husband, Venus in Aries, Mars in Taurus, we are trying to figure out the way these things work to be honest.

    Do they show us they love us when they give us their “credit card” and join accounts? Just curious now. What are they trying to teach us?

    1. Money is about control – someone on another earlier post said Scorp’s don’t take lovers, they take hostages, but actually, I think the hostage taking thing is Toro. Scorp possesses you psychically, long after they/you have left, because they touched you in healing way and/or hurt you somewhere inside that only they can.

      With Toro, the money thing is not about teaching you anything. It’s about trying to say ‘can’t you see how much I care since I am willing to share my dosh with you????” (when I am so possessive about what’s mine???). “And isn’t that enough for fuq’s sake”””????
      On a level that I’ve seen many Toros deny, the negative side of this is that sometimes it’s about controlling you by making you too comfortable materially to leave – or at least about making you realise that life would probably be whole lot less comfortable without them. It’s an unwritten contract: I provide, I rule. Full stop.

      I think Toro is often deliberately blind to power dynamics they are using but don’t want to see. His powers of denial are truly extraordinary: there’s just no basis for a conversation about it all – it’s all so simple, to Toro, and if it isn’t, then it’s because YOU are neurotic, or don’t appreciate them; it’s certainly not because THEY are capable of any convoluted machiavellian motives.
      Right, yeah.

      Toro’s keep more secrets FROM THEMSELVES than any Scorpio ever does. For that reason, they get lazy about hiding their peccadilloes, so it is easier to catch them out.

      1. bugger, that was me and I forgot to mention name.
        You can tell I had a few bad experiences with first two lovers (Toros – multiple toros with Venus in Aries!) can’t you!!! The fact that the first one – at age 17 – who cheated on me and then went on to become a multi-millionaire and rang me out of the blue a few years ago – some 30 years later – to say he still loved me and wanted to cheat on his wife with me, from across the globe, doesn’t endear me any to Toros. Life at work is such a bummer of mad hours – which he picked up on after a few conversations- that he was basically trying to spin me a “let me take you away from all this” line. My thoughts? Sigh. Tempting for about two seconds. At the price of total control of me and betrayal of some innocent woman who has put up with him for all these years? No thanks.

        1. Uranian&Plutonic Virgo

          I love learning about these things – thank you both for the insights!!
          Never gone out with a Taurus, and don’t know that many (obv peeps whose sun signs I know, hehehe…)
          I have only Taurus Chiron and my 7th house is Taurus.
          Thank you again, loving these things that I can ponder about and cache in my brain. 🙂

      2. There is that aspect to them.. where they want to materially possess everything or bring things down to “see how much I love you.. I gave you..” Yes I would like to believe that everything is not down to that, but my fear is that the shadow of the Taurus energy IS.. money is the love replacement, and how they can run hot and cold..

        Passions exclusively on their clock, not the other way around.. which is disturbing for me. And with that there are no planets but Neptune in Scorpio, sensing that the hostage taking is down to the just the material level.. being captured, jailed and limited. As if they head off opportunities for us to be self-sustaining and they are very critical in our works and careers.

        (not my Cancerian friend with Mars in Taurus, mercury in Gemini and Moon in Gemini, he’s an exception, and has been a “rock” for a long time.)

      3. Raché (Aqua/Tauri)

        This is so, so true.

        My dad is very emotionally cold. However, he is completely loyal to my mom despite them having no passion and a lot of disagreement.

        He shows her he loves her by working super hard at his engineering career to make a lot of money and have a nice house and land, saving steadily for retirement, and by always making sure there is enough in the banking for everything she needs (she is a Cancer, loves getting a deal so nothing too crazy). But he is very emotionally distant.

        The same with us kids. He never hugged us or said he loved us, but he got us horses and drove us to every rodeo, spent tons of time teaching us to read at a super early age, looked over our math homework every night after 14 hour work days, etc. Taureans show their love by doing, but can be stifled when it comes to being emotionally expressive.

        1. My mum is a Taurus. You’re so right! She bought me all sorts of things when I was younger and constantly fed me (cancer ascendant maybe?) to show her love but not much for saying it or listening to my thoughts or feelings.

      4. “I think Toro is often deliberately blind to power dynamics they are using but don’t want to see. His powers of denial are truly extraordinary: there’s just no basis for a conversation about it all – it’s all so simple, to Toro, and if it isn’t, then it’s because YOU are neurotic, or don’t appreciate them; it’s certainly not because THEY are capable of any convoluted machiavellian motives.
        Right, yeah.”

        Excellent observation. Same for Caps who’ll deny manipulation ’til the cows come home.

        In fact I’m starting to disbelieve that anyone can be unconscious of their own motives. You just have to dig. People hide from themselves yes. But they absolutely know what they are hiding from! We ain’t pretty sometimes…..humans that is.

  29. True. All true. I’m a Taurus with Scorpio rising. Food, money, sex; all extremely important and things we are extremely good at making and doing… Schedules are a prison and spontaneity is overrated.. If your lucky we will sing for you…

    1. “Food, money, sex; all extremely important and things we are extremely good at making and doing” – Hit the nail on the head if I may say so myself 🙂

  30. I’m a double Taurus with a Scorpio moon and that’s so true for me. In fact, I was about to post it to my FB site until I read the part about sharing music, my God that would be too revealing because it’s true. I feel subtle rage when somebody displaces my stuff. Yes, subtle rage exists.

    1. Omg…. I love “MysticBull”…. as I am a Taurus Sun with a Scorpio Moon conjunct Neptune! Wish I thought of it first
      : ) !

  31. my landlord is tauras….he lost all respect for me cause i was late once with the rent and then due to extreme lack of sleep lost the door key. This guy has a hard heart its beyond his star sign
    i have had no door screen for a month but he too busy with his his excess stuff a truck which rots in the backyard and a speed boat.

    he is overcharging us all for living here and it took me a lot of effort to get a wait for it……..$5 discount of the rent. Tauras has a real base energy about them mainly the men, the yoga types look like little buddha’s.
    they like aries but patient get them to do anything or try to make them budge just no. They respond to big piles of money going in their hand

  32. SO timely as I have just started sharing a house with a Taurus. Just about everything I do is spontaneous or planned… Que? Is there some other way of doing stuff? Fortunately we are both Camus ‘Outsiders’ and not at all interested in each other romantically. It’s a business arrangement. He doesn’t know his time of birth but I’m guessing Cap, so with lots of 1st house Cap myself I can deal . I got an early warning signal when the very nice wooden breadboard of his I was admiring (and using), was ‘disappeared’ out of the kitchen. It was a very nice chopping board. I just have to remember not to crap on like an air head Aquarian.

  33. and never ask a Taurus that doesnt eat seafood if you can forse feed him a prawn… goes against EVERYTHING in their Tao but they will politely decline with a ‘no thanks’ Love them totally.

    Gemini 1001 with taurus rising living with Taurus upon taurus upon taurus.. i mean everything in taurus!!!

  34. Sun, Moon and Mercury in Toro (what I like to call the Toro Trifecta) and yes yes yes I agree with these points esp. the music. Also – that image has blown my mind, it’s like a self portrait. It’s a perfect reflection of how I feel right now (minus the muscular, bulging cyclist thighs!)

    1. Hey, me too, Sun conjunct Moon, and Mercury in Taurus. Some people say Mercury in Taurus is slow-witted, but I totally disagree. It is thorough, practical thinking, an application of abstract ideas to real goals. And nobody ever accused me of being slow-witted, quite the opposite. Perhaps it is more like an old buddhist slogan, “nine thoughts to each word.”

      1. Charles – agreed! No one has ever dared call me slow witted but I am very good at making the impractical, practical. With a little thought (as glacial speed) I can usually make anything happen.

  35. Too funny! Too true! I’m Taurus sun with Leo rising and Aqua moon so…??? and of course it’s completely Zen, no question!

  36. Spot ON, Mystic. Must be why I seem to “get” those with prominent Taurus..”like Leo without the stage presence and scorpio without the secrets”- brilliant. I have suspected for a while but now truly believe Pisces beau to be Taurus rising. Leo-like in choosing clothes (quality, fine textures) but less flashy. Scorp-like in the x-ray vision but not as intense. And music….to a T.

    Great bit “The truth about…” i agree with david5379- more signs!

  37. omg. nailed it. I hate to run to a schedule or to be planned – but I don’t much like surprises either. What? It is zen! And as for the music – well. Exactly. Don’t crap on, full stop. Everything important can be said in two sentences or less. Right?

  38. The best sex I ever had was with a Taurean artist. He stopped midway and insisted on looking at my body as he ran his hands over me to appreciate the aesthetics of my body by the moonlight.

    *le sigh*

    1. Good lord, my Toro ex was one sensual, body-worshiping horny bastard.

      Me: Venus-Mars conjunct in Libra. Him: Venus in Aries trine Mars Sagg. We were pretty awesomely romantically aligned and our Virgo-Toro earth combos made for such a great team….before we split. His emo Kataka ascendant and my less-than-transparent Gem moon figured prominently in a very messy break-up, though we’re great friends now. Zero tolerance for neurotica and the music bit is dead on. Sensational print!

  39. that really makes me feel bad, my sister is always offering me music and I always flippantly blow her off…. but then again, shes always eating my food and drinking my drinks when im there, like, a thing of lemonade or whatever will be there a whole month and the weekend im back suddenly guess who wants some, as a kid I had to find things she didnt like just as some sort of refuge from the constant “sharing”/ compulsive copying of tastes, so suddenly having tastes for the only things I like while still eating drinking her own stuff is pretty messed up and insulting on a toro level, spose it balances out, oh pluto,you should do a “the truth about” some other signs maybe

    1. Ha ha, I should just move around all her stuff next time im there tee hee, shes about as fixed as I am mutable, ascendant(leo) sun(taurus) and moon(aqua) (and her mercury/mars/midheaven are taursus as well, oy), once she actually confronted me CONFRONTED ME, because I moved this shampoo thing somewhere else, so it wouldnt fall and because it was in the way mind you, and she was legitimately upset I did not put it back, but she does tons of far worse things, and I just have to bite my tongue, uggh I can go on forever whining about her, thats family I guess, shes great, but obviously difficult
