If you’re looking for a better companion, a reliable trainer who’s always ahead of your workouts, or a partner who’ll always be by your side, you’ll want to hunt down a Taurus to fill the role.
Taureans are particularly partnership-oriented, and they see the world through their connection with others. As such, they are almost as loyal as a golden retriever. In case a relationship – be it with a gym buddy, SO, or boss – isn’t working out, they’ll always choose to resolve any disagreements before they call it quits. But for those with a Taurus zodiac sign, devotion to others isn’t their only distinguishing trait: they also view life through an artistic lens, so they feel like it’s an incredible experience that should be lived to the fullest.
To get an idea of all the Taurus zodiac sign has to offer, read the guide below for stats, traits, compatibility, and a wellness guide that will help you optimize your health goals and of physical form.

Characteristics and personality traits of Taurus
Since Taurus are ruled by the planet Venus, they love, well, love, and not just in a romantic sense — their family, friends in their Peloton community, and even close co-workers are just as important as their current boo. While loyal individuals, Taurus are also serious when it comes to matters of the heart, and they need to make sure they feel secure in a partnership before fully committing. But when they finally close the deal, they’ll stick with it for life, as long as they feel appreciated and not taken for granted.
Career-wise, creative Taurus often gravitate towards the arts, as they have many talents that they need let shine. They’re not afraid to hustle, and they know how to work smarter – not harder – which allows them to negotiate the best contract and salary terms, as well as take on even more artistic endeavors. The caveat: they will never stray from their vision or aesthetic, thanks to their stubborn nature, which is why it’s best to let them do their own thing and have freedom in their creative endeavors.
When they’re not expressing themselves through art or spending time with loved ones, Taurus people practice all forms of self-care, as they’re one of the most hedonistic zodiac signs. As a fixed earth sign, Taurus like to indulge in all of life’s pleasures without excuses. That’s why you might find them buying each other flowers, booking themselves a massage, or taking a solo vacation to some magical destination.
To better understand the Taurus’ total aesthetic, consider other Bulls such as Machine Gun Kelly, Megan Fox, Cher, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jessica Alba, Janet Jackson and Adele.
Before diving into Taurus compatibility, it’s important to note that any zodiac sign can be a perfect match for Taurus. However, some zodiac pairings may be better than others.
Taurus and Leo, Taurus and Scorpio, & Taurus and Aquarius
A relationship can become stale when Taurus unite with other fixed signs, including Leos, Scorpios, and Aquarius. These zodiac signs offer Taurus reliability, but they don’t give them much incentive to create. Also, these signs don’t usually act spontaneously, so the partnership energy can get dull after a while. Even though Taurus can be rigid, they like to let go on a whim more often than other fixed signs.
Taurus and Leo
These mismatched pairings can even trigger conflicts. Take, for example, a couple between a Taurus and a Leo. Although the signs often find each other and align in the world, they both have stubborn personalities that make them butt heads. Leos can also be a bit dramatic, while Taurus likes to maintain a laid-back vibe, which can stir up even more tension.
So what signs are compatible with bulls? Virgos and Capricorns tend to align well with Taurus. These earth signs all like to work hard and play hard, which can lead to long nights sipping cocktails, engaging in deep conversations, and connecting on a personal level.
Taurus & Cancer & Taurus & Pisces
Taurus also pair well with Cancers and Pisces, both of which are water signs. Earth needs water to grow, and water needs Earth to contain it. Translation: They need each other to develop and maintain control over their emotions. But the relationship could turn sour if Cancer or Pisces fail on the plans. Due to their emotional nature, water signs often cancel each other out at the last minute, but for a Taurus, punctuality and commitment to projects are just as important as commitment to a friendship or relationship. After all, Taurus work hard and have very little free time, so it’s important for them to make sure others follow.
Taurus & Gemini & Taurus & Libra
Taurus can also share many laughs with Gemini, who is ruled by Mercury, and Libra, who is also ruled by Venus. All of these zodiac signs love to chat together, and you can count on them to blast the group chat with the latest hilarious celebrity news. That said, Taurus can be argumentative when they disagree with others’ points of view, and both air signs tend to be more quick-witted than Taurus, which can give Taurus the impression of being left in the dust.
Taurus zodiac sign wellness guide
Due to their hedonistic nature, Taurus are obsessed with self-care, so they will spend much of their free time receiving restorative treatments, such as massages, facials, manicures, and pedicures. They can even get a luxury hair treatment every week or regularly shop for the latest must-have wellness products to enhance their self-care routine. Sleep is also an essential part of Taurus self-care regimens – if they don’t get 10-12 hours of sleep, they’ll surely lock horns with others.
Remember, Taurus want to work smarter, so they tend to avoid strenuous, high-impact sports and HIIT workouts. Instead, they will enjoy relaxing yet effective workouts such as yoga, Pilates, and cycling. Since Taureans value partnership, they may also obsess over pair workouts, such as acroyoga or no-equipment sweat and strength-building sessions.
Beauty and skin care
Since their planetary ruler is Venus, the goddess of beauty, Taurus take their beauty and skincare routines very seriously. In fact, their bedtime routines might even be an hour-long, multi-step ordeal that includes exfoliating and anti-aging treatments and deep conditioning hair masks. They will use the best, newest and best moisturizers, serums and anti-acne products. When they’re ready to meet up with their gym buddy for happy hour or their SO for a relaxing brunch, they’ll always make sure they’re fully glam — or at least wearing lipstick. Even if they’re hanging out at home, they’ll make sure their hair is perfectly groomed.
Wellness takeaways for the Taurus zodiac sign
Taurus can become hyper-focused on their outer selves, which is why it’s essential for them to think about how they can improve their mind and soul as well. Just think of fellow Taurus Cher Horowitz from clueless, who chose to give her inner self a makeover after focusing on her outer beauty for so long. Taurus can do just that by incorporating meditation, journaling, and other self-reflection methods into their lives.
