The Most Toxic Relationship Traits Of A Taurus

It is commonly said that if you mess with the bull, you get the horns — if you find yourself on the bad side of a Taurus, that might be an accurate statement. As the second sign in the Zodiac, Taurus falls between April 20 and May 20, and is an earth sign ruled by the planet of love and money, Venus. According to Horoscope, Taureans take pride in their drama free romantic relationships (they're best with a Capricorn or a Cancer) and because of their trustworthiness and honesty, they are described as the "anchor of the Zodiac." A Taurus will typically focus on consistency and reliability, and genuinely appreciates when their efforts are matched and rewarded, both financial and emotional (via Allure).

Like any sign, Taureans have their very own set of positive and negative characteristics. Although this sign is considered the most sensual, strong, and stable of all the Zodiac, Taureans can quickly become an unforgiving pest if they feel abused (per Love to Know). This grudge-holding nature is part of their stubbornness, and just like a bull, an unwavering Taurus will win in fight every time. As you may have guessed, these strong character traits can have a big impact on a Taurus' relationship. 

A Taurus may forgive, but will never forget

If you are in a relationship with a Taurus, be prepared to be ignored at times, as they do not enjoy conflict. If there is a major disagreement, or a Taurus feels disrespected, it may be quite some time before they come back around, if they do at all (via BOLDE). The stubborn Taurus is known for sabotaging relationships with avoidance, and can be so strong-willed that — if you don't make the first move — you may never hear from them again (via Love to Know). Looking to improve your relationship with a Taurus? Encourage them to explore their interests and communicate more effectively. 

The traits that make the bull such a wonderful friend and lover can also be the cause of their difficult characteristics. Taureans are the first of the four fixed signs – making them patient, determined, and grounded — all of these traits lend to their stubborn and controlling tendencies. The Taurus may eventually forgive you, but it is a rare bull that will forget, or let you forget, how you hurt them or abused their trust (via PINKVILLA).
