Taurus Traits and Star Sign Personality

Do you know the traits of a Taurus? As the zodiac’s second sign, Taurus traits include stability, a security-seeking mind and a need for things to be grounded. Understanding Taurus traits can help you get along with this sign in love, work and life.

What are Taurus traits?

Have you ever met someone who was hardworking, persistent and even a little bit stubborn? Chances are, this person was a Taurus, the sign born between April 20-May 20. Learning the Taurus star sign personality and Taurus traits can help you coexist in harmony with this zodiac sign, which can be sensual and elegant but also overindulgent and lazy.

Chief among the traits of a Taurus is their built-in energy conservation program. Taurus energy has two speeds: relaxed and contented (like a steer luxuriating in a verdant pasture) or hyped-up and ready to charge (Toro, toro!) like a Bull. A Taurus will patiently assess whether something is worth the investment of their time and resources. Then if the green light flashes, it’s all systems go! But until then, slow and steady wins the Taurus race. This sign encourages us to break our work into simple steps then take daily action. Taurus is the sign of the persistent provider who loves life’s earthly pleasures. As the zodiac’s second sign, Taurus craves a sense of security and stability.

What kind of person is Taurus?

Positive Taurus astrology traits include patience and organization, and being supportiveness, romantic, careful and dedicated. They’re not afraid to take their time in order to get the job done properly. Taurus people are determined, driven and known (no surprise!) for their stubborn streaks. Or maybe they’re just really, really committed? But once a Taurus makes up their mind to move in a certain direction, it’s hard for them to shift gears. But hey, at least they’re consistent!

Difficult traits of the Taurus sign include overindulgent, stubborn, lazy, vain, cheap, and overly cautious. Taurus is a stabilizing fixed sign and a grounded earth sign. But as the second sign of the zodiac, Taurus can also get us stuck in their comfort zones and habits. Although they talk a good game about their lavish and decadent tastes, many Tauruses can have a tendency to spend their money and resources in excess. Taurus people can be grounding, bringing a sense of ease and contentment. Unless, that is, they’re worked up about something…then steam pours out of their ears!

While these traits of the Taurus sign can make the rest of us impatient, their dedication is also endearing, and their sensual charm is irresistible.
