Taurus Positive and Negative Traits
Taurus Positive traits
Taurus people are ruled by Venus, and have an attractive face and personality on first meeting. They are magnetic and charming. Taureans are ambitious people and once they have a goal in mind they work towards that with dedication and commitment to ensure it is achieved.
Taureans are loving people, they like peace and harmony generally. They are very patient and are able to wait for the right opportunities to come their way rather than make rash decisions to start a number of things all at once.
Being an earth sign, they are usually practical people, who do not often get carried away with airy fairy or fantasy ideas. They are down to earth and diplomatic, and look at the material and tangible benefits in taking a decision or venture. For this reason they make good business people. They are loyal to their partners and friends.
Their persistence and determination make them succeed where others may have given up under similar circumstances. Like the Bull, they keep going until they have achieved what they set out to do. This is another reason why they make for good business partners.
Taurus Negative traits
Taurus people are known for their stubborn nature, just like the Bull who may sit in one place all day and refuse to move. This can be a major negative as they may end up wasting a lot of precious time sticking to a decision or opinion that they have made, when it is infact not the right one. Also they can come across as arrogant for this reason, and refuse to admit their faults.
Taureans are very patient, and often it takes a long time or something big, to make them angry on something, but once they are angry, then their wrath knows no bounds. Once the sleeping Bull has been awakened then it is very hard to calm them down. Anger for a taurean builds up slowly inside them, and then it comes out in a volcanic explosion, and they may be very expressive of how they feel.
When they are challenged they are unwilling to back down, it’s almost impossible to stop them in their thought process, they just have to get their point made, and until their point has been made they will not rest- a downside of their persistent nature.
Taurus people are very unforgiving to start with, if someone has wronged them. They may totally ignore the other person, or indeed make it very hard for the other to even approach them. This is part of the taurean arrogance that comes into play. To apologise to a taurean, a person must be fully prepared to swallow their own ego and get on their hands and knees with their nose to the floor, this is just to make the Taurus notice them. Once Taurus has been suitably convinced that the person is truly regretful and ‘sorry’, only then will they forgive and be ‘okay’ with them again.
They certainly have a materialistic nature which isn’t always a bad thing, but it can make them selfish in their decisions, this comes back to the practical nature they have and the earthly instinct of survival. However they are ethical individuals and do not use any unfair methods or deception to get their goals.
Although Taureans work with great conviction to achieve their passions, they can be set back a lot by their sheer laziness to get up and do something in the first place. This is something that they will learn over the years and try to control within themselves if they are to be successful and make the most of opportunities that come their way.
Lastly, Taurus people are very proud and have a very high opinion of themselves, which can rub people up in the wrong way!
