Taurus woman: 20 April – 21 May
The expression ‘a sound head over her shoulders’ was coined for the Taurean female spirit. A woman who knows how to balance her emotions, a woman who is a woman in every sense – without being a sissy and a woman who knows exactly what she wants in life… that’s a typical Taurus woman for you.
Known for her stubborn yet affectionate nature, the true Taurean will find her way into your heart via two routes… either gliding sensuously into love or tickling your palette with her culinary skills. Either ways she will head for your heart!
There are two types of Taurus woman and both are poles apart. About 60% are aggressive with a strong streak of feminism in them. They like being dominant and belong to the liberated women’s group. The balance 40% of them are true earth sign females… more submissive and easy to be with. But don’t think they lack aggression. The passive kinds too have the vein of aggression in them, albeit a not so strong one.
How can you identify a Taurus woman in a crowd?
The aggressive type of Taurus woman is not too difficult to spot in a crowd. With her nose high up in the air, she is awfully opinionated. She also displays certain masculine qualities like dominance and power play in a conversation or discussion. Trying to control things around her is the core characteristic of this woman.
On the contrary, the passive kind of Taurus females is a sight for sore eyes. She is warm, friendly and forever smiling. Neither an introvert nor an extrovert, she is a curious mix of both. She is also not likely to mingle in a crowd very easily, but you will find her approachable and friendly. Once she is comfortable with you, you will see her as a warm individual and a treat to be with.
What to expect from her on the following points:
Appearance: Taurus women have a very distinct combination of sharp yet blunt features. They have sharp expressive eyes. I have funny observation: I have noticed a small percentage of Taurus women to have a well shaped nose, but generally they have blunt noses. For a Taurus woman the highlight of her face is undoubtedly her lips, usually observed and found are just perfect.
True to her earth sign, her taste in clothes too is earthy. She prefers clothes that are comfortable, generally in pastel shades and in soft fabrics like cottons, linen and denims. Since most Taurus women are creative and artistic, this is reflected in their dressing and you will find them wearing embroidered fabrics like batik and sometimes even whacky designs.
Ambition: Both kinds of Taurus women are highly ambitious. To them growth and climbing up the ladder, both monetarily and socially, is very important. They always aspire for top positions and work diligently towards their set targets.
You will get a better idea of her ambitiousness when I tell you how strongly it is backed by her stubborn will and her persistent need to be economically secure. It is almost impossible to get her to do what she doesn’t want to do or stop her from doing what she has set out to do. She will stubbornly persevere in her efforts till she attains her targets. And in the process it is important for her to make money, which to her signifies purchasing power, stability and security.
What are the general traits of her personality?
One of the highlights of a Taurus woman’s personality and perhaps a misguiding factor as well is her relaxed demeanour. She appears to be outwardly calm and composed, but inside she is bubbling with restless emotions. She is much like a frozen river… icy cool on top and gurgling with action inside. The ice breaks very often and emotional outbursts are not uncommon.
With a Taurus female, caution is her middle name. Be it the aggressive or the passive kind, she makes every move and every decision with great caution. With such a detailed thought process, she is likely to arrive at absolutely correct decisions or come by them rather late. Sometimes her cautiousness makes her almost inactive.
Because of her cautious nature, she is reluctant to accept change. This quality she shares with her male counterpart. Change of any kind, especially brought about by others, is a big no-no for a Taurus woman. So conservative is her attitude that she will never break away from the old order and will prefer to toe the traditional line.
I may have made them sound all intense and serious. But, Taurus women have a unique sense of humour too. They are generally funny people and love to have a good laugh.
What are the finer traits of her personality?
One of the finest traits that I have noticed in Taurean females is their capacity to be feminine without being sissy. Deep inside she is as solid as a rock… at least emotionally. She is emotionally quite sound and any attempt to convince you otherwise is mere eyewash.
She is also quite independent. I don’t mean it in a manly sense but she likes to take things in control and manages tasks related to herself with efficiency.
The one sense a Taurean girl has in abundance is common sense. She sees everything with a practical standpoint. You won’t catch her wasting anything, be it money or emotion, without a reason. Because of this trait in her, she always gets to the crux of the matter and doesn’t believe in philosophical, intellectual or verbal meanderings. However, this does not imply that she is not smart. Her intelligence is directed towards making the most of this practical world.
How is a Taurus woman when in love?
The Taurean love is not just love… it’s a complete package. She will be a lover, wife, friend and guide to you. she will be wife-like even though you are not married, which means she will take care of you and your needs as a wife would. She would also be a guide to you as she will always give you wise practical tips on how to get along with life.
Like I had mentioned earlier, the Taurean is possessive by nature. It is advisable not to make her jealous or suspicious. Since she trusts easily, she finds it difficult to handle breach of trust. Another reason to avoid provoking her is her destructive anger. Very often she is not able to control her anger and it rages on like a storm, destroying everything in vicinity.
When in love perhaps the most outstanding of her traits would be her sensuality. The Taurus girl will tread the path of love rather slowly. She will size you up completely before going ahead. But once things get underway, romance will be in the air forever… it would be akin to her aura.
While dating her, you should…
…get her an expensive (but practical) gift, buy her flowers and take her to a fine dine restaurant. The gift will assure her of your love, flowers would delight her and good food will do the trick for you.
The Taurean female is a woman of taste…and I mean it literally. She likes good cuisine and the right mix of spices and flavours can make her go home with her head full of thoughts of you.If you can pull up a faire extraordinaire, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to invite her to your place for a quiet dinner. And when it is her turn to return the compliment, you can be rest assured it would be a meal you won’t forget for along time, as the lady in question also happens to be an excellent cook.
Remember, a Taurean is very selective about whom she dates. So if she has agreed to meet you it is after careful consideration…and whether a second date would follow depends largely on how you excel at the first one. First impressions mean a lot to her. Although she has patience, she won’t necessarily exercise this virtue in case of dating.But once she commits herself it would be for keeps.
While the typical Taurean isn’t exactly sweet tempered, she is a complete woman in every other way. What’s more…she is in a way aware of her shortcomings and knows how to keep them in check. In spite of being strong willed, she needs a man who can take care of her. In such a scenario who would be the most compatible man for her? Let’s find out!
Taurus woman and…
Aries man: 5/10. His passion can get things started but it won’t necessarily stand the test of time. She is way too practical to suit his impulsiveness. With a woman with such an independent streak, the Aries man might feel tied down and think his freedom under threat.
Taurus man: 8/10. This combination can hit the bull’s-eye…no pun intended. The Taurus man’s stability can impress his female counterpart, whereas her penchant for good housekeeping can keep his comfort levels high. But both will have to learn to keep their obstinacy under check.
Gemini man: 4/10. The compatibility quotient between these two is rather low. The Gemini male is adventurous and impatient, not to mention reckless at times. A Taurean will find these aspects too much to adjust with, while he may take her staid nature as kind of boring.
Cancer man: 9/10. There will be no dearth of warmth and romance in this relationship. The Taurean would know how to deal with his mood swings with patience, while the Cancer man would know how to appreciate her womanly qualities.
Leo man: 7/10. With a little bit of hard work, this relationship can turn out pretty well. The Taurean will have to learn to handle the Leo ego with grace and he would need to be more appreciative of her love.
Virgo man: 8/10. Security is the key word in this relationship. She will be able to draw out the romantic in him, while he will undoubtedly appreciate her pragmatism. Both will be able to satisfy each others’ demands for commitment and devotion.
Libra man: 7/10. Again, a lot of hard work would be needed to make this relationship tick, not to mention lot of compromises. The Taurean will have to be less clingy and needy of a commitment. The Libran guy on the other hand should learn to give her the security she yearns for.
Scorpio man: 6/10. This one would be a really tough one to pull off! The Scorpio man’s secretiveness won’t go down well with the Taurean, making the mercury of her suspicious soar. Both might also get too headstrong for each other to handle.
Sagittarius man: 6/10: If the law ‘opposites attract’ can sustain over a long term, this combination is likely to survive. She would be floored by his adventurous spirit and he will like the idea of returning to a warm home after a hard day’s work. But to really make this work, she will have to tone down her need for security, while he will have to be more ‘home bound’.
Capricorn man: 9.5/10: The Capricorn man is the best match for the Taurus girl. With her loyalty, the Capricorn guy will learn to let his guard down and be more expressive of his feelings. She would also know how to bring his humourous side to the fore. She will always have a strong shoulder to lean on and never feel bored in his company.
Aquarius man: 7/10: If both are ready to learn, they can teach each other a few good lessons in life. She can be an anchor to his wild nature and he can show her how a few laughs can brighten life. These two can together strike a balance between the intense and lighter sides of life.
Pisces man: 9/10: The Piscean’s dreams will get staunch support from the practical Taurean. The Taurus girl is loyal and the Piscean will appreciate this quality in her. She will also show him how to realise his dreams in a practical manner. The Piscean will impress her with his spiritual leaning and intellectual mind.
