All You Need To Know About The Bulls

Taurus: April 21 – May 21

Perhaps the most misunderstood star sign, a lot of people think of Taureans as laid back, lazy and stubborn. Sure, they can come off like this sometimes, but actually, those behaviors are driven by a more intellectual and analytical nature than they are credited with.

Born between April 21 and May 21, Taureans ponder deeply on all matters… this could range from love, life, money, work, the weather to something as less significant as a random Netflix series from last year. They deconstruct situations carefully, pull them apart to understand how things work and what makes people tick. This takes a while (hence them seeming lazy) and when it’s done means that their conclusions are thorough and rock-solid (hence why they seem stubborn because they know their own mind).

To get an idea of the classic Taurean personality traits and types, we need only to look to some of the most famous bulls (the sign’s spirit animal): Mike Adenuga, Adele, LatashaLagos (our editor), David Beckham, Malcom X, Damilola Adegbite to name a few.

Taurus individuals

Taureans can be gentle and they can be fierce, they don’t like to be pushed, they have strong opinions, and they love their home comforts.


PERSEVERANCE (misinterpreted as possessed)

If you want something done then ask a Taurus. No task or challenge will beat them, they have endless reserves of tenacity, patience and resilience. As the tide on the shore, they’ll just keep coming back at it – Till its something its time to move on from i.e. relationships, feuds, unwinnable video gaming competitions, etc.

AESTHETIC (misinterpreted as: fussy)

This star sign likes the good life, prioritizes their comfort and pleasure over pretty much all else, and loves luxury. Their appearance, their homes, their material world will look, feel, smell and taste awesome! Remember this on birthdays and Christmas. Do NOT think the regular handbag from the local retail market will hold sway with this gal. Nope. They only want “the best”.

PATIENT (misinterpreted as: immovable)

Taureans live life at a slower pace than most other people (they’re usually late for stuff, too). What actually drives this is a deeply held desire to ponder and consider their every move (as well as yours). They like to analyse… everything. And it’s this eternal deliberation that makes them so stubborn. They have already thought it all through and therefore are totally clear on, and committed to, where they stand.

SENSUOUS (misinterpreted as greedy)

Taureans are intensely physical creatures- they revere the pleasures of the material world (rather than imaginative capers or fantasy stories). So: food, drink, chilling, pampering, shopping, sex. Basically, that’s it. That activity-combo is what makes Taurus tick. And, they can have difficulty finding the off button for the aforementioned. This can lead them into trouble…

CHILLED (misinterpreted as zoned out)

“ARE YOU EVEN LISTENING TO ME?”… this is something that partners of Taureans will get used to screaming, in sheer frustration and desperation, through locked doors/down stairways/into their other half’s face. Nope, they’re not listening to you (unless you’re offering food/drink/sex/money). They are thinking. Or even, sometimes, just, you know, “chilling”. Taureans love doing nothing. Just being kind of vacant. Let them be. It means you can get on with whatever you want to do and they won’t bother or fuss over you. Enjoy it!



The key to a lot of physical pleasure, and therefore the access code to their enjoyment of life (as well as quelling their deep-rooted Earth sign desire for security). ALL Taureans obsess over, respect and manage their money. They enjoy investing and saving.


Taureans don’t eat to live, they live to eat. Food is massively important and they enjoy cooking and hosting dinner parties but, even more, going out to eat at any given opportunity. Natural-born food bloggers!


They don’t even need Netflix. Just give them a dressing gown, a fluffy blanket and some peace and quiet and they can stay on that sofa for HOURS. Doing NOTHING.


I can’t put my finger on why, exactly, but Taureans are always hot stuff and draw admirers like moths to a flame. They only need to glance at a dating app, and it lights up with invitations. They know how to have a good time, so they make for a great company – in love or friendship! They love attracting admiring attention and are expert flirts.


It’s not just a necessity or pragmatic list-driven activity but, rather, a specialist event undertaken for its own pleasure. They’re the kind of people who will go “downtown” all day, browsing and ambling around their favourite boutiques and stores (with a nice lunch too, obviously). They take shopping seriously. Don’t tag along unless you do too – you’ll be bored…

We understand now and we love you.
