4. They have been to known to have the occasional dramatic outburst


Being strong-minded the Taurus can definitely be a bit ‘bull-headed’ and argumentative at times and has been known to occasionally cause a bit of a scene.

5. They have a cool demeanor that’s deceptively relaxed


When not in an argumentative state however the Taurus comes across as very cool, calm and relaxed. This leads many to think they haven’t a care in the world.

8. They’re not good at ‘letting go of things’

9. They’re opinionated and don’t ‘sit on the fence’


The Taurus is an extremely opinionated creature that’s more than capable of capable of forming their own ideas. And once a Taurus has decided on something… they rarely change their mind.
