How to Make a Taurus Woman Happy

Is a Taurus woman right for you? How do you make a Taurus woman happy?

If you follow astrology, you may hear some misleading matchup advice. Maybe you’ve heard that you should “never” date a Taurus. The truth is you can make it work with any zodiac sign. Your so-called imperfect match could become your life partner if you take a chance.

Astrology is a helpful tool for “decoding” people. No matter what you believe, it’s always helpful to have another tool in your romantic arsenal.

So if you’re interested in a Taurus, how do you make a Taurus woman happy—and find yourself happy with a Taurus woman?

The Taurus woman

Taurus is the second of the 12 zodiac signs. It begins its cycle in the middle of spring every year during Taurus season, which falls between April 20 and May 20.

Sensual Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty. This zodiac sign loves great food, romance and beautiful things. The Taurus woman is sensual and sensory—she loves to touch, taste, smell, hear and see things of beauty. The Taurus woman is happiest when surrounded by the best of everything.

Like the bull that symbolizes this sign, the Taurus woman operates at two speeds: totally relaxed or charging headfirst towards a target. She prefers to keep the peace, but when she’s pushed past her limit, watch out! Underneath it all, she just want to be comfortable, and surrounded by life’s finest offerings. Taurus knows what she likes, and that’s that. She sticks with her opinions, and she doesn’t change unless there’s a really good reason.

She can be infuriatingly stubborn—but on the upside, she’s also loyal and dependable.

Is the Taurus woman your “dream match?”

The Taurus woman is a romantic in theory, a realist in practice. While she may date many, her love is reserved for someone she’s certain she’ll meet and stay with forever. She’s a huge family person—whether with her biological clan or her chosen fam. Loyal and stable, the Taurus woman can get wrongly cast as “boring.” She’s not! She just appreciates life’s simple pleasures like no other sign. A Taurus woman will live in the moment and soak it all in.

She’s a creature of habit who loyally sticks to her deep-rooted opinions, favorite foods and vacation spots, and other creature comforts. She loves her family and might crave a more conventional lifestyle, complete with kids and a gorgeously-appointed home. But she’s also adventurous, eager to seek beauty and pleasure—especially once she knows there’s a secure base to return to afterward.

Thinking of challenging one of her cherished opinions and values? Watch out. The Taurus woman can be a bit of a bulldozer. When she pushes, you’ll need the strength to push back—or to hear her out without reacting. That means knowing and accepting yourself enough to stand up for your beliefs when you go hoof-to-hoof with a Bull goddess. If you can express your limits without putting hers down, you will win her respect and her heart.

Taurus is a fixed sign, which is exactly what it sounds like—a woman who’s “fixed” in one place and doesn’t budge (this sign is symbolized by the Bull, after all!). It’s the frustrating side of her loyal nature…but you’ll have to accept the good with the bad if you want to be her mate for life.

How to spot a Taurus woman

You may find a Taurus woman at an artisanal or exclusive restaurant, a wine bar or any epicurean event. Or, you might just spot her in her own kitchen, making magic with her chef’s knife and glazed copper pots and pans. Relaxing with friends and family is her favorite off-duty activity—and if it happens to take place at a spa, all the better. Since she’s so earthbound, you might find her at a spiritual event that involves sound healing, crystals, guided meditation or something that allows her to access the divine through the mundane.

This musical and stylish sign might be performing as the lead singer in a band (Taurus rules the throat), showing off her dance moves (a la Taurus TikTok star Charli D’Amelio) or shouting into a BULL-horn as she leads a protest that aligns with her fiery convictions. The Taurus woman love creature comforts and can be a materialist—whether that shows up in her expensive outfits or her overstocked pantry. You’ll find the more glamorous she-Bull shopping at an upscale boutique or department store (she’s brand loyal), writing music and poetry, fastidiously editing a video, studying art at a gallery, preaching about a passionate topic or…taking a power nap.

Many Taurus women love luxury. The more Venusian of this zodiac sign clean up beautifully, causing jaws to drop as they float around in diaphanous dresses, bespoke heels and tasteful jewelry. But there’s also a gritty, down-to-earth sector of Taurus women that’s the complete opposite—totally utilitarian and proletarian, wearing the simplest clothes (think cargos and T-shirts) or accessorizing her tattoos with skater-style chains, heavy boots and thrift-store finds.

The “natural habitat” for a Taurus woman

The Taurus woman is a provider. Her tenacious sign rules material comforts and daily income. She likes bringing home an ample paycheck, enough to never have to think twice when she picks up the check or treats a loved one to a lavish gift. When she’s “on-duty,” her natural habitat is a workplace where she’s expressing her values while being in service to others.

What a Taurus woman does for a living

Taurus is one of the zodiac’s hardest working signs—loyal, organized and persistent. While she loves to lounge once the workday is over, nobody is more dedicated when there’s a job to complete. She’ll finish what she starts, even if it means late hours.

Taurus women make strong managers. They are methodical and practical, excellent planners and organizers. They are professional and grounded, not afraid to call things as they see them. They are gifted visual thinkers.

Jobs a Taurus woman is likely to have include: business owner, retail banker, project manager, real estate agent, photographer, art director, filmmaker, interior designer, dancer, musician, art dealer or museum curator, restaurant owner and/or chef, makeup artist, singer or performer

What a Taurus woman wants in a partner

Taurus is the sign of self-esteem and you’ll need plenty of confidence to be with this woman. She loves a partner who is smart and strong. Although looks are important to her, the Taurus woman needs a mate who won’t crumble when faced with life’s challenges. Her ideal partner has a reserve of inner strength, the grace and wisdom to know which battles to choose, and won’t commit to anything without a rock-solid plan.

Do you have a steady job? Big plus for the Taurus woman. She is confident enough to support herself and expects others to do so as well. That said, if the chips are down and she loves you, this powerful provider sign will always have your back. But you’ll need to bounce back fast if you want to keep her respect.

She’s all about putting down roots. The Taurus woman typically wants have a family—or at least, someone to grow old with and to share a beautiful home. Once this lusty goddess sows her oats, she’d rather follow the same routine for 60 years with one person than constantly swap partners. Her idea of variety might not be partners but new restaurants.

Life with a Taurus woman is comfortable and safe, save the occasional bullfight! She’s demanding, but she repays you with unparalleled loyalty.

Flirting with a Taurus woman, “romantic stuff”

What’s it like interacting and being intimate with a Taurus woman?

Flirting & dating and your first date

The Taurus woman likes a “try before you buy” approach to dating. She’s a commitment-cautious sign, so while she likes to plant roots and family is important, she’s nowhere close to thinking about these things on the first date—or even the first few dates. There’s always a chance she’s in one of her lusty phases and just looking for a no-strings good time. Relax! The Taurus woman does, however, like to be wined and dined. Want to turn her on? Carry yourself with confidence, and behave well in public. Be ready to put your best foot forward.

Your ideal first date with a Taurus woman is to a concert, political fundraiser or play, dinner at an elegant restaurant where you might linger and order a bottle of wine before or after your meal, and share some straight talk. Flowers are a thoughtful gesture to bring her before you go out, or pick up along the way home from your date.

Sex with a Taurus woman

Sexual confidence is a hallmark of the Taurus woman. When it comes to erotic escapades, this earth sign is always up for pleasures of the flesh. Keen on the senses, she loves to taste, see, touch, and smell you. Your natural scent is her biggest turn-on, so make sure you’re clean but also sniffable! Don’t rush to the finish line in the bedroom, either. Think of your boudoir adventures as a lavish, multi-course meal.

Atmosphere is important to a Taurus woman, and she loves to create a lush setting. Rose petals, candles, luxurious pillows and clean sheets (the higher the thread count, the better), are all big pluses to set the scene.

A Taurus woman’s turn-ons and turn-offs

If you want to keep a Taurus woman happy, it is helpful to know here turn-ons and turn-offs!

Taurus woman turn-ons: consistency (she hates sudden change) and punctuality; knowledge of music, art and cultural literacy; genuine admiration and passionate expression; being sensual, strong and classy; being savvy with fashion, food and wine. The Taurus woman also is turned on by a partner who puts an emphasis on family and life’s simple pleasures.

Taurus woman turn-offs: interrupting her when she’s talking or talking too loudly/making a scene; having an empty fridge or a messy house, trying to change her or tell her what to do, over-complimenting or being inauthentic, fighting for fighting’s sake, being tacky or cheap, not showering or wearing overpowering scents, playing games or making her jealous, rushing her or flirting with anyone else in front of her.

Dating a Taurus long-term

If you make it past the Taurus woman’s extensive screening process, she has decided you’re a keeper. Now, she’ll begin setting up a life too good for you to want to leave. Here’s how you’ll know: she may act married before either of you have popped the question, your relationship becomes more intimate (and remember, intimacy is more than sex!), she takes you shopping or asks for help researching a big-ticket item, and/or you’ve met her family or friends.

A Taurus woman will call it quits if she feels neglected, lonely or forgotten. If you’ve shown her a reason for why you may not be “the one”—she’s done! But this is not an overnight decision. Taurus hates change, and it takes a lot for her to want to bother ending a relationship. But if she commits to it being over, remember that a Bull seldom misses the target she’s charging toward.

If she… 

Gets quiet. She’s savoring a moment or just relaxing. Or, she’s observing you “in the wild” to see if you are partner material. Join her in the moment or express yourself. If you don’t know what to say, ask her opinion on a topic.

Stops contacting you. She’s decided you’re not the one. If you think she’s wrong, invite her out and show her otherwise. If she doesn’t respond, move on. But if you insulted her and you’re waiting for an apology, call and ask if you did offend her. If you did, graciously apologize. (Then, never again repeat the offense!)

Picks up the tab, gives you gifts. Tauruses treat and spoil people they like, not dependent on romance. Enjoy it but don’t interpret it as love. If she wants more, she will tell you!

Introduces you to her family and/or closest friends. She seeing how you fit in. Taurus is a loyal sign, so chemistry with her clan is a deal-maker (and lack of it is a deal-breaker). Be kind, interested and make a good impression. Listen more than you talk.
