Taurus. Stable, serene, abundant. The zodiac’s port in a storm. Bulls have a way of calming the wild beast and making us all feel that everything will be okay. But what about in love?
I can already hear the objections. Aren’t Taurus greedy and materialistic, interested only in their own comfort? And what about their stubbornness? Don’t they refuse to change their mind about anything ever? And isn’t “stable” just another word for “boring”?
Not at all. I mean, yes, Taurus loves food and sex, love and money. But honestly, who doesn’t? And while they’re hardly the most flexible of signs, is that really such a bad thing? And though Taurus isn’t always down to party, well, who among us is? The truth is, Taurus is generous, supportive, and reliable. From where I’m standing, that sounds like a pretty good deal!
Taurus is incredibly supportive. And what’s more, their support is practical. Romance and compliments are great, but who is going to do the dishes, hmm? Let me give you an example. Years ago, I had just left an abusive partner and was living on my own for the first time. I was a wreck, to put it lightly. My best friend, a Taurus, not only helped me move, but showed up with my favorite flowers and several days’ worth of homemade dinners. She helped me decorate and make the place feel like home. She even stayed with me the first few nights while I got used to being by myself. THAT is Taurus love.
Taurus is also sweetly, blessedly low maintenance. It takes so little to stay in their good graces. They don’t require constant energy exchange like Scorpio or grand displays like Leo. Once you’re one of their people, that’s enough. Just be good to them, feed them, and when the chips are down, show up. That’s it. Doesn’t that sound like a relief?
Additionally, Taurus is deeply accepting. I know they have a reputation for being judgmental, and while that is true to some degree, it is also used very selectively. Once you’re in their circle, judgement no longer applies. They accept you as-is. This is because due to their inherent self-esteem. The thing about Taurus is, they like themselves just fine. They wouldn’t tolerate anyone attempting to change a hair on their head. And when you’re close to them, the same applies to you. They don’t buy the narrative that we must all strive for improvement all the time. For Taurus, good is enough is, in fact, good enough.
Taurus is also far from boring. Their ideas are firm and strong, but they’re also deep. The friend I referenced before? She is, hands-down, the most captivating person I’ve ever met. We have been friends for nearly 15 years, and I have been fascinated for every second of it. She has really, truly, powerfully thought through her ideas, which has allowed her to explore corners most would overlook. And YES, Taurus can evolve and change their mind! They just do it on their own time, and not because someone pushed them there. They’ll only change because time, evidence, and experience have made it clear that it’s the right thing to do, not just to make someone happy. Some may call it frustrating, but I call it integrity.
Finally, Taurus has staying power. They don’t run just because times are hard. They don’t drop you just because something shinier showed up. And in the bedroom, Sting has nothing on Taurus. Taurus rules value, and they know that value accrues over time. Everything that Taurus creates is built to last.
So sure. Bulls aren’t perfect, and they aren’t for everyone. If you want a lover who will shout their love from the rooftops and show you off at every opportunity, Leo or Gemini might a better choice. But if you value stability, comfort, and practical, tangible support, Taurus has your back. You may not paint the town red every night, but you’ll have a deep, fascinating partner who will accept you as you are and stand by your side until the very end. You bring the pizza. Taurus will do the rest.
