(WellnessPursuits.com) – Resourceful and reliable, Taurus folks get along well on a platonic level with nearly every member of the zodiac sign, even though their views don’t always match others. After all, it’s hard to get mad at such a loyal sign. Sure, Taurus can be a bit stubborn at times, but it’s only because they want what’s best for their loved ones.
Here are three things you should know if you’ve got a Taurus in your life:
1. Taurus is a Fixed Sign
Taurus is a fixed earth sign, which means they are grounded, dependable and sometimes a bit stubborn. Tauruses like stable plans and predictable situations. If you invite your Taurus pal out for Mexican food, don’t suggest switching to an Italian restaurant instead. Sudden plan changes make Taurus nervous, and they may become irritable.
Like other earth signs, Taurus can be a bit of a homebody. If you’re dating a Taurus, you can still expect plenty of fun-filled dates — they are sensual and devoted, after all — but you can also expect plenty of cozy nights cuddled up on the sofa together. This can be frustrating for signs that are always on the go, such as Gemini and Sagittarius, which is why Taurus often pair best with laid-back, sensitive signs such as Cancer and Pisces.
2. Tauruses Protect Their Loved Ones
Dealing with an unfair boss, a backstabbing friend or a rude teacher? Don’t expect your Taurus friend to be happy about it. Tauruses protect their loved ones, and they’ll happily help you stand up for yourself when needed. If you’re an adult, this may include developing a plan to stand up for yourself at work or distance yourself from a toxic friend or significant other. If you’re the child of a Taurus parent, don’t be surprised if they contact the principal or superintendent if they feel you’re treated unfairly.
Taurus also believes guidelines are in place for a reason, and they expect others to follow legal documents, traffic laws and store rules. If your ex violates your divorce decree, expect Taurus to show up at the contempt hearing with you — possibly even as a witness, rather than a support partner. If someone speeds through the neighborhood while kids are playing in the street, expect Taurus to share their thoughts about it with the driver. Taurus may come across as assertive at times, but they have soft spots for their loved ones and will always strive to keep them safe and happy.
3. Tauruses are Sensual and Sentimental
Want a girlfriend who cooks dinner each night or a husband who surprises you with roses and jewelry on special occasions? Look for a Taurus partner. Tauruses are traditionalists, which means they’re into old-school actions, such as opening doors and paying for dates. Many of them fall into stereotypical gender roles, which can be comforting to signs who want to date someone charming yet predictable.
Despite their fixed natures, Tauruses are often true romantics. They are sensual partners who won’t hesitate to kiss your neck while you cook dinner or rub your back in the checkout line. You can count on Taurus to remember your birthday and anniversary, and Tauruses are usually faithful partners. Just make sure you let them know you appreciate their kind actions, as Tauruses can become grumpy if they feel you take them for granted.
Tauruses can be a bit quirky, but their quirks are predictable. Taurus folks march to their own beat, but they still have many traditional views, especially when it comes to romance. They’re not as adventurous as air or fire signs, but you can count on them to stick by your side no matter which curveballs life throws your way.
