The Taurus Woman: Love, Sex, Friendship, Style
The Taurus Woman
Have you been in any china shops lately? Witnessed the smashing of plates, the
tossing of horns? It would be a mistake to be seduced into complacency by a
Taurean woman's docile, big beautiful eyes and long lovely lashes. This sign can
attack, but only if provoked by one too many a red flag. She has a hot and fiery temper,
and will unleash it when pushed to the limits; however Taurus women are generally sweet
natured, with a liking for pretty little objects of affection. A personal
serenade or some exotic orchids would do the trick nicely.
Taureans are also persistent, sometimes determinedly so, obstinate in the face
of adversity, and stubborn to the point of utter exasperation. This ability to
hang on through tough times and bad, as well as her emotional strength, make Taurean women a force to be reckoned with.
Some celebrity Taureans rushing
headlong into the limelight include Cher, the Empress Catherine II of Russia,
and Penelope Cruz.

The Taurus woman is tender and caring and she may have
some firm opinions that can't be changed -- but that can
also equate to strength of character. This is the second
sign in the Zodiac and spring is in full bloom when the
Taurus celebrates her birthday.
She is sensible and patient – very winning qualities. Taurus' element is
earth, and Taurus Woman could be described as the original earth mother. True to
her symbol, the Bull, she can be placid but also stubborn, and an explosive
temper lurks underneath that though slow to ignite, is tumultuous when it comes.
But the Taurus temper is rarely seen, for Taurus Woman aims for balance in life.
She loves nature and desires nothing more than to live in comfortable and
Although she is clever, she is not interested in proving herself an
intellectual for the sake of it and will be content to let her friends shine
while she provides the convivial surroundings in which to do it.
She likes security, so she will go through life planting and nurturing seeds
like a devoted mother, and she will patiently wait for them to take root.
Because she is basically unadventurous, change can be a threat to her. She is
more likely to get into a rut, preferring to preserve the status quo, so that
any change that happens in her life usually comes from outside. However,
whatever experiences life brings to her she learns quickly from them and is
unlikely to make the same mistake twice.
Taurus is ruled by docile Venus, and is a passive, feminine sign. Her appeal
is luring, earthy sensuality and practicality. Her main challenge is to learn to
Taurus in Love
The bull loves treats and will respond to sweetness and light much better than
to whips and shackles. A Taurus woman is true and steady and may appear a little
undemonstrative. Nothing could be further from the truth! Remember that fiery
temper of hers? There is passion lying underneath the calm and stable facade,
she simply has not unlocked it for the entire world to see. Taureans can
sometimes be in love with blinkers on and be completely focused on their love
life. Passionate and always tender, Taurus Woman is seductive and will pamper
her partner both in the bedroom and out of it. She will take her time in a
relationship and needs to be wooed. She wants to get to know her partner and
will not commit until she is sure she has made the right choice. She does get
jealous, but only if really provoked.
Affectionate and sensual, a Taurus woman enjoys the romantic thrill of
courtship, but rarely rushes into a relationship. Her relationships may take
quite a while to get off the ground, because she thinks carefully about all the
ramifications of intimacy with her partner before she commits herself. Some
Taurus women can date someone for some time, and her partner feels everything is
going well, when in fact she may not have made up her mind. She is very generous
with her partner, and although Taurus is known for being somewhat self-centered,
she in fact often puts the needs of someone she loves above her own. She doesn't
require as much excitement as other women, and she offers a relationship that is
constant and comforting. It's very difficult to truly anger the Taurus woman, as
she has a way of shrugging off things that others might react to negatively. She
is nurturing and cares for her loved ones in a surprisingly romantic way, given
her logical way of dealing with the rest of her life. However, she has her
limits, and her loved ones must learn what these are, and strive to never push
beyond them. The gentle, thoughtful demeanor they have grown accustomed to can
transform into a driving force of fury.
When it comes to attraction, Taurus'
secret weapon is serenity. There is a composed, peaceful, and patient quality to
Taurus that is unmistakable and irresistible to many. Potential suitors sense
that she's solid, never desperate or overly needy, and genuine. More often than
not, Taurus women are described as "real" or even "the real thing". She's not
flashy, yet she makes a statement. She's sensual and feminine yet firm and
strong-minded. There's an extremely soothing aura surrounding Taurus that is
really quite rare in a world seemingly filled with stressed-out people. It's
easy to trust a Taurus, and to count on her.
In a pinch, Taurus will rarely engage in a messy argument, although she does
have a legendary temper if completely provoked. If cornered, her refusal to "go
there" might be a little frustrating at first, but usually wins her "the
argument that never was". Why fight with someone who seems above it all? You'll
only wind up feeling silly and appearing excessively emotional in contrast. She
is good at walking out if she feels you're blowing things out of proportion. She
firmly believes that the best revenge is silence. And, she's probably right.
She's expert at scoping out a new person in her life, although she rarely
comes across as the type of person who questions and doubts. Instead, she seems
to be a great listener. While she's rarely gushing, she offers solid advice and
support. Taurus takes quite a bit of time to let a lover into her heart, but
when she does, she can be unstinting. She'll defend you to death, if the need
arises. In fact, she comes alive when she needs to defend or protect a loved
Taurus and Relationships
There are few signs more committed and devoted than a Taurean woman. She would
make a perfect partner for the right person. Taking it slow and easy, she will
stay the course until the fruits of her labors blossom into the relationship
she wants. This perseverance is noted in every aspect of her life, but it is
with her lover that the Taurean will be most tenacious. She enjoys the closeness
of relationships and thrives on affection and intimacy. The Taurus woman also
loves being right and is usually too willful to change her mind about that, so
you best practice the art of appeasement when required. She is most compatible
with Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, and Pisces.
She can be a little reserved around those she doesn't know, but that doesn't
mean she ever lets herself be taken out of the game.
The nurturing ways of a Taurus woman make her a great giver in any relationship
as long as her partner is committed to the union and makes her feel secure and
protected. Treat her improperly and you'll see the tenacity of her personality
in full force. She can give the cold shoulder like no one else. She may seem
quiet and subdued at times, but not when it comes to protecting what she claims
Taurus and Friendships
Do you remember those high school friends who said "Best Friend Forever" and
signed off with kisses in your yearbook? Chances are, ten years down the line,
those friends from high school who are still your BFF will be Taurean women. The
bull takes friendships seriously, and she is constant, loyal, and devoted. In
return, all she asks is that you remain as true to the herd as she is to you and
all will be well. Taurus women typically don't need hordes of friends, as
quality over quantity is her motto, and this extends to most areas of her life,
not only friendships. She will ignore people she doesn't like rather than try to
pick a fight with them, and doesn't go out of her way to rouse up that sleeping
Taurus and Sex
A Taurus woman is extremely captivating in the bedroom. Her lovers are often
surprised by her virtuosity, expecting a steady, plodding physical relationship
but finding an intense sexual being instead. She likes her play times to be
brightened up with conversations, and sly seductions. Even so, it's less about
what you say than about what you do that's important to her. Taureans treat sex as
fantasy land, a way of escaping from the more mundane aspects of life, and yet
still manage to bring a whole lot of earthiness to the mix. She takes pleasure
in the warmth of physical contact, but her more adventurous side might require
prompting. Don't think boring because her stamina is unmatched. The Taurus woman
knows what she likes and will make sure her partner knows exactly what that is!
Passionate and always tender, Taurus is seductive and will pamper her lover both
in the bedroom and out of it. She will take her time in a relationship and needs
to be wooed. She wants to get to know her partner and will not commit until she
is sure she has made the right choice. When she does commit though, it's probably forever. She does get jealous, but only if really provoked.
Sex with the Taurus woman is a deeply sensuous experience. She likes a lover who takes time to savor the moment, and doesn't think much of a person who thinks foreplay is something you do on the golf course. She is often content with repeating the same things in bed, but before you decide that's boring, remember that contentment means she's not going to rush out and find a replacement if you're going through a dry spell. She may not be the one to suggest a new position, but she's usually very open to the idea if you do.
Her appreciation of the simple pleasures in life, combined with legendary stamina, is a real plus. Too often people become restless in their sex life, failing to appreciate the basic pleasures of sex. Not so with Taurus, who can truly keep a long-term sexual relationship alive, not necessarily with variety but with untiring passion. This is especially true for women with Moon and/or Venus in Taurus.
She is placid and slow to anger, but the lover who arouses her jealousy won't be allowed to forget it in a hurry. She is looking for her Prince Charming, and wants a steady, romantic, and fulfilling relationship.
Words don't move her in quite the same way as actions do. She finds it hard to
get over a failed romance, but as a romantic at heart, soon gets herself back
into the game again.
Taurus and Career
Because of her sometimes expensive taste the Taurus woman is prepared to give
her all in return for a good salary upon which she can rely, working overtime
when necessary and giving her full commitment. She is not usually an innovator
or a natural leader, but she is a hard worker. Dependable and persevering, the
Taurus woman excels in whatever task she takes on. With a creative eye and
enjoying the stability of a day-to-day routine, she would do well as a florist
or antique collector.
But this lady loves money, so combining that with her positive characteristics
and the Taurus woman is ideally suited for positions in banking, stockbrokerage,
insurance agencies, accounting and real estate. Give her a million dollar home
to decorate and sell and this woman will think she's died and gone to Heaven.
But the list does continue: teacher, herbalist, chef, doctor, architect,
While a Taurus is capable of following orders and can be wedged back in the
corner of an office doing data entry, there will always be a reason for taking
this type of job. She can stay in one job for a long time because she knows that
only by being patient will the job description evolve and the pay increase
steadily. Security is important to a Taurus - flash usually isn't. Those
Taureans in managerial positions aren't usually fiery leaders, but they are
stalwart and competent – excellent traits for leading the employees.
Taurus and Money
The Taurus woman is generally good at finance, and giving financial advice. She
knows how to work the system and get the best out of it. She is not a wasteful
spender, but she does like luxurious living. However, she will not risk her
security to fund it. She would much rather do without than put at risk the
security of her lifestyle she values so much.
She's not greedy, but can be materialistic and strives for a financially secure
lifestyle. Investments will be sound choices offering the comfort of safe
returns over any risk ventures.
Being practical, this woman will look for good value on purchases, but won't
sacrifice quality to save a few pennies. Go cheap on the lady and you might find
your gift in the garbage and replaced with one she bought herself.
Taurus and Family/Home
Taurus Woman is an excellent mother, but she does expect obedience and good
behavior from her children. She doesn't like laziness either, so children with a
Taurus mom can expect to be kept on their toes. That being said, she will be
their best friend their whole lives through and will teach them her own strength
and resilience, and protect them from whatever the outside world chooses to
throw at them.
Taurus women have many fond memories of their childhood and often carry on many
of the traditions of their family. She is loyal to family members but will go
her own way in certain areas if it suits her purpose. She is not easily swayed
if her mind is made up. She is sentimental to a degree, but not to the point of
becoming controlled by it. After all, she is very practical.
The Taurus woman loves nature and the outdoors, but rather than the wild
randomness of uncultivated land she likes to be among well-ordered fields,
orchards, and vineyards. She takes a great, fulfilling pride in a beautiful
garden, especially a tasteful mix of productive vegetables and fruits with
lovely flowers. Even the urban Taurus woman's home reflects her strong
connection to the earth, with earthy colors, combinations, and touches.
Taurus and Health
Taurus rules the throat, and Taurus women tend to have musical and melodious
voices. Their throats might also be vulnerable. They should take care not to
become too stressed or worried, as this can result in insomnia and depression.
She needs to retain balance in her life and it's important not only for her
mental health but also her physical health that she does this.
Taurus and Fashion
Far from wallowing in the mud, the Taurus woman is in reality a little bit of a
label snob. She loves the finest imported fabrics and only buys quality clothes.
Tailor-made suits are an investment because she understands that the perfect fit
will never go out of style. Practical, classy, and tasteful, Taureans prefer
embellished flats to silly stilettos, and impeccably cut pants to miniskirts.
They love accessories that highlight their best features, often their graceful
necks, and own necklaces and scarves by the dozens. Subtle and smart, this Earth
sign favors neutral colors like cream, ivory, and khaki, accented by rich
browns or luscious gold.
Her main gemstone is the emerald. Emeralds are especially appropriate worn as
necklaces because the body part ruled by Taurus is the neck. Emeralds have
traditionally been associated with loyalty, belief in immortality, love, and
faith. Her main color is green. Taurus generally looks best in earthy colors,
denim, and white. She looks at clothes (and people) in terms of how they might
feel to the touch, and even if an outfit looks fabulous, if it doesn't feel
fabulous next to her skin, she'll avoid it. Interestingly too, she usually
sniffs out new clothes, and is more aware than most about how certain fabrics
She sticks to her favorite clothes and jewelry, and many a Taurus woman will own
more than one of each of these favorite pieces. If she finds the perfect fit and
style of jeans, for example, she'll go back and buy a second pair in case
something happens to the first, rather than risk trying a new style. While
Taurus can pull off a lot, she doesn't look good in boxy or
uncomfortable-looking clothes. She loves fresh, uncomplicated, and clean scents,
and is the first to notice an unusual or offending smell.

The Taurus Woman: Fashion & Style
Ruled by sensuous Venus, the Taurus woman was born to love, and to be loved.
Lush and curvaceous, her idea of a workout is walking to the beauty salon. She
is used to turning heads, and knows how to make the most of her Venus-blessed
The Taurus woman loves to shop, but not for her the rush and bustle of the
sales. She likes to savor the experience, spending time choosing just the
perfect pair of shoes, just the right bag, or the perfect blouse to go with the
pants she just bought. It doesn't matter how much she paid - the Taurus woman
will make everything look like a million bucks.
She is artful at disguising her curves if she needs to, and making herself look
as sleek as a Persian cat when those curves become too ample. The Taurus woman
is always watching her diet, but she makes sure she saves some calories for her
favorite food, like chocolate. Soft sensuous fabrics make the most of her
For casual wear, the Taurus woman likes comfort, and she is not very comfortable
in lycra. She likes to touch a garment before she decides to buy it. The Taurus
woman has highly developed senses of touch, sight, and smell. She loves a fabric
that feels luxurious; colors that make the most of her own coloring; and most of
all she loves the smell of new clothes. She will browse for hours without buying
anything, just enjoying the luxury of indulging her senses.
The Taurean woman loves cosmetics, skin care, and fragrances, and tends to stick
with her favorites. She will always have a signature perfume, whether her taste
runs to a light floral or a heavy duty Venus trap fragrance that she employs
without shame. She loves an indulgent beauty routine, always making time to
moisturize her whole body. She knows the soft and sensuous touch of her skin is
one of her greatest assets.
She loves old fashioned jewelry, especially pieces that have a romantic history.
Her home has a touch of luxury too, with the kitchen and the bathroom likely to
be the rooms she checks out first. Deep comfy velvet couches will be a must.
When it is time to go glam, she goes all the way. The Taurean woman knows
exactly what suits her in make up and hair, and will go against the trends to
make sure she is always at her sexiest. If the trend says purple eye shadow and
short hair, she will ignore it, knowing that smoky eyes and long luxurious hair
are what really suits her (and what potential lovers really like!). She will
spare no expense on her hair, loving anything that is fragranced and that gives
her hair more volume.
Though not intensely competitive, the Taurus woman does like to succeed in her
career. It means a better salary and more opportunities to indulge her passion
for shopping. But it is not always about her - she loves to indulge her loved
ones as well, and the person who falls for a Taurus woman is in for a lot of
She can be high maintenance, and this might scare some lovers off. The Taurus
woman needs a lover who wants to be petted, and who wants to spoil in return.
She loves the good life. Her idea of Heaven is dinner at a really good
restaurant (even if she is on another diet!) and a great show or movie after.
Venus makes her hopelessly susceptible to romance. Promise me anything, she
says, but give me moonlight and roses, and never forget the heart shaped box of
chocolates on Valentine's Day!
Sex with the Taurus woman is a deeply sensuous experience. She likes a lover who
takes their time, and doesn't think much of those who think foreplay is
something you do on the golf course. She is placid and slow to anger, but the
lover who arouses her jealousy won't be allowed to forget it in a hurry. She
wants a steady, romantic, fulfilling relationship. She finds it hard to get over
a failed romance, but being a romantic, soon falls in love again.
The Taurus woman enjoys life to the full, and frankly wants the best of
everything. The person who wins her heart can be sure that they have just been
paid a very great compliment!
