Ahh Taurus, the notorious hard-headed bulls of the zodiac. They’re stubborn and immovable, but at the same time, we love them for the consistency, dependability and stability they bring to any group. And as with real-life bulls, you need to approach them with prudence if you want your relationship to remain smooth sailing. That’s why we have this list of six things you should never say to a Taurus, ya know, just to help you out.
1. “Let’s just go with the flow and wing it.”
Tauruses are the most stubborn signs in the zodiac, but that doesn’t mean they want to hear about it. For them, an argument is about expressing their viewpoint concisely and being doubly (triply, if we’re being for real) sure that you hear and understand where they’re coming from. Brushing off a Taurus’s behavior as stubborn can make them feel dismissed, which revs up their defenses and forces them to double down on their position.
2. “You can work faster if you multitask.”
Tauruses prefer to expend their energy and resources in manageable strides as opposed to spreading themselves too thin. The idea of multitasking for the sake of completing a task faster just doesn’t mesh with a bull’s state of mind. See, a Taurus values consistency. So they’ll focus on one thing at a time, combing through the fine details, crossing their T’s and dotting their I’s. To a Taurus, the process is the work.
3. “Do you really need another pair of Chelsea boots?”
Ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, it’s only natural that Tauruses gravitate toward luxury. And with shopping at the tips of their fingers, critiquing these bulls for taking self-care to the extreme is asking them to go against their nature, especially because they’re actually not frivolous spenders. If you happen to see a Taurus with the latest Stuart Weitzman boots, trust that they either bought them on sale, or they’ve been saving up for months!
4. “You’ve got the bill, right?”
Tauruses are great money handlers, so springing an unexpected expense on them won’t go down well. If you’re in a serious financial bind, they’d be more than happy to help you out, of course. Just don’t show up to brunch assuming they’re going to foot the bill just because you volunteered to do so last time.
5. “[Typing…]” But Ultimately Left on Read
When Tauruses fall in love, they fall hard. We're talking lavish dinners and long, heartfelt texts, just to woo you. So, if you feel inundated by their grand displays of affection and you're craving some alone time, it’s wise for you to communicate. Ghosting them out of frustration may leave these bulls feeling neglected, then you have to do double duty to convince them you're just as committed to the relationship as they are.
6. “I booked us at this cool hostel with a communal bathroom.”
Tauruses are fixed signs, which means they have a low tolerance for constant change. They feel safest when there’s a stable routine set in place, so naturally, spontaneity is just not their thing. Tauruses are all about controlled fun, so instead of backpacking through Europe making decisions on a whim (and a budget), expect months spent planning to make sure they have first-class plane tickets, a hotel suite featuring a breathtaking ocean view and the best of the best when it comes to vacation activities.
