How to Recognize Taurus?
The natives born on and between April 20 and May 20 belong to the Taurus sun sign. The natives are smart, ambitious and trustworthy. They have two energy speeds. Some of them are relaxed and contented and others are hyped-up and ready for the charge. They are strong and possess an attractive sense of confidence and stability. They possess a strong and silent attitude. They will talk in monologues like ‘yeah, nope, thanks, hello’ until they know the person completely. They prefer to move deliberately and speak sparingly. They are solid and steady and nothing can disturb their peace and calmness. They won’t move an inch even if you use all tactics to disturb them. They are happy and satisfied when they spend alone time. They will get raged and obstinate if you push them too hard or tease them too much. They have good control of their anger. Even a short temper Taureans gets angry once in a while. When they do get angry or mad, they can demolish everything. They always indulge in the things they can touch, smell, taste and appreciate the finer things in life. They are stable, patient, and determined. They live a balanced life with hard work and great success. Their sense of determination infuses stubbornness in them. They do not stick to the same things and are eager to see the point of view of others. They don’t change their opinion to keep others happy. They are very cautious and take lesser risks.
Taurus is a passionate sign and the natives want to seek out pleasures. The natives are amazing friends, colleagues, and partners. They give too much value to honesty. This is why their first date would be similar to the job interview. They ask too many questions just to find out that you are a good fit for them to start a relationship. Both Taurus men and women would hold a grudge if their partner would lie to them, even if it is white lies.
