Those born between April 21 and May 21 fall under the sign of Taurus, and this article will break down their common characteristics.

Taurus: April 21–May 21

What do Charlotte Bronte, Robert Pattinson, and Adele have in common? You guessed it; they are all born under the astrological sign Taurus.

One of the most unique astrological signs, Taureans are unique and unlike the rest of the crowd.

Taurus people usually look very calm and cool on the outside, but they have a deeper personality once you get to know them. They are also known as great socializers because of the way they mingle with the crowd, no matter where they are.

Being close to a Taurus can be fun, but this doesn't mean that they will be opening their lives to you.

They have deep thoughts, and no one around them will be able to guess what they are currently thinking. You will only get to understand the deeper thoughts of a Taurus once they let you into their mind.

They will usually prepare themselves first, and you need to earn their trust before they allow you to read their minds. That is why if you are serious about knowing a Taurus, earning their trust first would definitely be a good idea.

Taurus people usually love planning ahead of time because they don't like to be caught doing nothing with their lives.

Taurus is an earth sign, which makes them good when dealing with their physical and personal senses. These senses are typically connected to things that make them feel delighted. They are also known to be pet and nature lovers, and some believe that this is because they are earth signs.

If this is your first time to get to know a person who happens to be a Taurus, make sure to avoid making them feel separated from everyone else because they will automatically remove themselves from around you.

Do Taurus Signs Hide Their Feelings?

One astrological sign that is not so fond of instant change is Taurus. Having instant changes will make them feel very worried and nervous about what's ahead of them.

People born under the sign of Taurus typically don't like the idea of something new, because this means they have to deal with something they are not familiar with. It frightens them to have to deal with something that is not familiar to them; that is why they avoid instant change.

They also feel very anxious when they feel their lives are not in the proper order. To avoid this certain feeling, they will have to remove themselves from the situation. They also don't like feeling insecure, but once certain situations arise, they don't have any choice and do feel very insecure.

A lot of people don't know that Taurus signs are sensitive since they are very good at hiding this aspect of their lives. This is the reason why they easily get hurt and offended when things don't go their way.

Taureans are also known to take things personally, which can sometimes lead to complications in their relationship with other people. They are also very secretive, and they are not fond of talking about their feelings with other people. Unlike the other astrological signs, Taurus has a closed-book life, which means that only a few people know their true selves.

The Taurus Career

People who are born under the Taurus sign are known to be business-oriented. They have the perseverance to achieve their goals when it comes to their chosen field in business.

They don't usually give up that easily, even when everyone else around them has given up.

They are typically good at financing. That is why most people who are financiers are born under the astrological sign of Taurus. They have the ability to know where they can build money and can easily manipulate their own ways to succeed.

When it comes to spending, Taurus people don't love it, but they love surrounding themselves with great food and possessions. The good thing about them is that they know when and when not to spend their money, especially if their business is going to be at risk.

They don't like risking their business because they know that their stability in life and their security will be lost, which will cause them to feel insecure and stressed out.

So You Are Attracted to a Taurus

If you're going to attract a Taurus, make sure to avoid making them feel like you are rushing into things. You need to be as patient as you can be because they are very patient as well.

You can entertain them by making them laugh since this is usually the way to attract them. Let them be amused by your ways for them to enjoy your company. If you are really serious about attracting a Taurus, then serving them sumptuous meals would be ideal because they have a love for food. You can take them to a fancy restaurant or cook for them if you have a talent for cooking.

You can also talk to them by bringing up topics such as money, business, finance, and possessions. Just make sure that you are prepared to talk about something that has sense, or they will surely shut down instantly.

Dating a Taurus

Women who are born under the astrological sign of Taurus are good at seduction. They have the tendency to get everything that they want without feeling impatient at all. They have the ability to wait until they get to have the things that they want.

If you're a man who doesn't have any plans for the future, then dating a Taurus is a bad idea. A woman who is under the astrological sign of Taurus loves security and stability, and planning ahead for the future is important to them.

Women under Taurus are known to be very devoted, loving, loyal, supportive, and very protective as well.

If you have a relationship with a Taurus, you should expect her to be very passionate about you. She has everything that you need, and she also expects to have everything that she needs back.

You can get her heart by courting her and impressing her with things that will surely make her heart melt. But beware not to cross them because they can show you the other side of their personalities, which all Taureans are born with.

A Taurus man is quite sensible, but don't expect them to melt your heart. They love having a woman that is not just any woman out there.

If he sees you, don't expect him to approach you immediately, because he will have to observe your actions as well. You don't need to worry about anything because they are very patient. So taking time before you open yourself up to them is not a problem.

Once you capture the heart of a Taurus man, expect him to be protective of you. They are very romantic in different ways, loyal, generous, and very faithful. That is why they also expect the same thing from you. If you are a woman who loves excitement and adventure, then you need to find someone else because Taurus men don't have a thing for women like this.

Just like the Taurus woman, the Taurus man also has an eye for security and stability. Taurus men are known to be good providers for their families, which makes them an excellent choice for the woman who is right for them.

I'm a virgo woman. Not long ago i was involved in a relationship with a taurean.He was very quick in impregnating me three weeks down the line.To be frank i never new alot information about him and he hardly opens up to tell me much about himself.Cause of that i took out the baby cause i didnt understand this game.Three months down the line, he once again impregnated me.He just told me to keep this baby.I threatened to remove it also.He pleaded with me yet still didnt reveal alot about himself.This guy is far older than me.He never told me he was married with 2 kids until we were involved in a grudge one time that he revealed it.Dont you think he was just trying to take advantage of me?He is a man of integrity,very caring, always made time for me and respected me so highly but i still try to understand why he does this.Can someone explain to me perharps he never told me he loves me and moreso i think he is taking thins so fast.We are just a year datingOur first

I’m a Taurus woman who recently started dating a cancer man. It is a bit of challenge if I say so myself, due to personality conflicts...but we’re just alike on so many levels and it’s freaky sometimes. There’s something about this man that soothes my spirit and my soul. I feel protected when I’m with him, and his kisses takes me to another atmosphere. It’s been weeks, and we haven’t even made love yet. I’m conflicted in my feelings with this Cancer man for reasons I have yet to discuss. Stay strong my Taurus sister and maintain your power. Best wishes to you with however you decide to deal with your situation. Blessings and Happy Holidays to you and yours. ❤️

I'm a taurean and my partner is a cancer. Honestly, we talked to one another 4-5 years ago and we only get closer 2 years back. It is a roller coaster ride, but i really enjoyed the company especially when he made me laugh. I always spoilt him with gifts and food dining out but when i didnt get things on my way, my guy start to sulk. n that sucks but also cute. thanks for this.

let him go .And start loving yourself you deserve better

Lara1983 on May 22, 2019:

I am a cancer and I’ve been talking to a Taurus for about 1 year and couple months, it been a rocky 1 year but at the same time the best, I’m just so confused on what to do He’s told me so many times “I’m not ready for a relationship” but yet we go in dates and he buys me a lot of stuff, we’ve fallen off 2 or 3 times the first time he wasn’t ready for a relationship so we stopped talking the second time something happened and he blocked me on everything but the on Valentine’s Day he showed up to my house with flowers and chocolates?! And we’ve been okay since then his birthday was a couple weeks ago and I got him some gifts then we went to the movies that Friday then I graduated and he walked right past me and my family on graduation and never texted me congratulations which I was upset? I got into a fight with my friends and they told me they were gonna text him and tell him lies about me so me and him could stop talking, which I don’t think he would believe them? I texted him last night to see how he was doing and he said “he had somethings going on” idk if he mad at me or he distancing cuz he has stuff going on? He once told me “when things get to comfortable I dissapear” and I never understand? When I call him and need something or I’m danger or emotionally not okay he right there to safe me and tell me everything okay?! So idk if he cares or if he wants something? He been to the hospital with me before the time I got kicked out he was there to help me, idk if I should wait around or just say goodbye?

Hello I am a Taurus woman that was born May 11th 1984 and I was on and off with a Taurus man that was April 23rd and this is an extreme love-hate relationship because of him mainly being so stubborn both ways from Aries and Taurus cusp. He has been the worst person that I've known as far as being selfish and intolerant and impatient if you even say anything wrong. the April Tauruses are not in too much detail and don't have as much compassion and loyalty as it may seem that they are faithful though. Me being the May Taurus female is always taking care of everything and willing to spend no matter what to make our lives comfortable and complete and he feels though the world owes him everything and don't have to spend or put towards anything. He seems to be madly in love with me but fear of future because life is a party for him. We both don't have any kids so I thought that this would be the best factor for us. He needs his face at times that we are not seeing eye-to-eye but can be up under me all the time if I am pampering him. He is very lazy and expects you to do everything knowing my May Taurus traits.Smh! He has a good job where he can retire from but you would have thought that he don't and can not care so fast even about the people that he love. April Taurus men and may Taurus men are complete opposites. April Taurus man will run from you in a minute as soon as you say something they don't like and may Taurus men you can't get rid of and are too possessive and will pay too much attention to you where they might not get their lives together.

You need to work on your insecurity.

Shristi on April 20, 2019:

I am a Taurus woman and my boyfriend is also taurus man. Both we are happy and stable with each other. But the problem is that he still talk with his ex girlfriend who got married three years before. Even in front of me. It seriously make me insecure. No doubt I also had past relations it's all over .Now I have no contact with my ex bf after getting him. Not even try .I am fully devoted in the present relation with this taurus man. I don't know what to do .I should leave him or stay. Just confuse. :(

Vivek Verma from India on March 31, 2019:

Avery ... This is your answer from my point of view.

First is that I am pure taurus male . My story is I am in love with awesome Aquarius girl. But at this I am not very stable in my career so I told her that I am going to build my career because now days I have a golden chance in my career which can gives me stability in life. So I have to be more focus on my career right now. Even I think of her each and every second of my life but I have to make distance only to help our future. That's why I don't call or msg her frequently . Worst part is that she thinks that I am ignoring her. She don't believe me and test me every time, I like the way she is .

she really don't know about financial condition truly , she is rich and very higher status than me, I have to reach to her status, then I can talk to her family about marriage till if she should wait. Thats my story.

Avery on March 27, 2019:

Hi im avery and I'm a leo my taurus man acted really good to me at the beginning but now after i told him i liked him he acts kinda distant , when i wanna give him candy or any thing he always says no thank you even when he acted good to me but i find ot wierd since taureans love food and he never text me first jntil i text him amd sometimes he ignores and before he used to stare at me even if i looked back but now if he stares at me he avoids it but sometimes i feel like he forgets himself and still stare lmao , i find him really confusing even tho he rejected me cause i like him for a month and i told him i think that's the reason why he rejected cause he need more time to commit, can someone explain to me cause i feel so confused by his actions

Erica and Carlos Cashion AZ on January 16, 2019:

Omg my boyfriend of 12 years is a Taurus and this is him to a flippin T!! Is quiet, soft spoken,very good looking does not like anybody new, the friends he has are the same ones he has had since childhood. Doesnt like anyone poking into our relationship. If he is doing stuff he likes to do he is committed and gives it his all. But there is no swaying him even if hes wrong hes right. Likes to stay home enjoys a routine and sleep. Loves money I call him Mr. Krabbs

Jayda on January 16, 2019:

I'm a Taurus and this is all true about me

laila on December 17, 2018:

this page is a big help, cause in really just getting in tuned with my inner taurus.:)

Carmon on August 23, 2018:

I can agree with everything other than a Taurus man does not like excitement out of a woman I think sometimes our fear hold this in place but if you're in love with a woman that is exciting if you love her sometimes you let down those walls just to watch her do something she enjoys and in the middle of that find yourself enjoy the excitement it's a turn-on I was born May 10th 1984 I'll jump out of a plane I've gone bungee jumping I've done a whole lot of exciting stuff and I normally didn't think I would do all which I enjoyed oh why being talked into it by a woman that I'm in love with so I think it's yours would do whatever to please his woman as a man at least that's my opinion

vandana on May 15, 2018:

that's really very true

people never understand us

MaeWest on March 18, 2018:

First of all Taurus men over the age of 60 are NOT anything like when they were young. In fact someone needs to create astrology for Seniors ! I am 61 and a December Capricorn my friend George is 64 and a April Taurus. We have known each other for 40 years. We are soul mates. We never married each other were never sweethearts no lived together. I always had other men for a husband or a lover because I knew from the get go how George was! He liked that I had no kids and was very independent. Now when they talk about them being good lovers and spending money NO that was not him. I dated other men for the good love making and restaurants. George was just my buddy that I laughed with and we cooked at my place all the time and he left the next day. He would help me move or fix something when I needed it. When I moved out of the country he came to visit me for week. I even stopped seeing him for 8 years because I did not want this anymore and my hear ached all the time I missed him and ladies AFTER the age of 50 you don't find good men anymore ! and because men change and their man hood I will call it does not work as well as it did they shy away from women. I started looking him up last year in August 2017 and we are taking baby steps again in our 61 and 63 year old ages again but i love knowing i have a man that looks me up when he has the time. I don't like smothering anyway. I also don't chase men I never have I am not needy and I am very independent. In fact next month for his birthday we are going to Las Vegas. I invited him to join me and will treat him to a fabulous Steak dinner. He can go 2 months and NEVER text or call me and then all of a sudden he calls out of the blue and we get together and we pick up where we left off. I am glad that I am the more adventurous of the two because he can get into a shell or get boring and he deserves more than that for himself. But I don't care what zodiac sign you are all older people start becoming the same. We are slower, we watch our money and we want other people around us that are like that. I am healthy and attractive for my age and I feel sexy around George. So I like to make him laugh and feel young when hes around me. Some things on our bodies don't work like they use too when you get old but you can find other ways to show affections. Now I would love for us to live together and all that good stuff but not really. Taurus men like allot of space "for weeks and months " and i like my independence so thats WHY we get along so well !

Taurus women ..I’m dating a Taurus women and I have completely lost her trust what can I do to win her trust back

Everything is accurate!#TaurusSquad

Cam4250 on January 26, 2018:

So so true

Me on January 14, 2018:

This is very accurate people don't understand us and our struggles

Za'riyah on January 02, 2018:

I'm a young Taurus & everything was true except the part about being patient I'm a very impatient person I like things done my way or the hard way & once you cross me I'll be the devil. Food is the key to my heart & adventure I like my partner to show me they love me, but most Taurus goes both ways were always interested in our fantasy & it gets us in trouble or even caught up.

Helena Miller on December 23, 2017:

This is very accurate..

Mandip Kunwar on December 12, 2017:

People never try to understand us.

sony on December 04, 2017:

Every line is being totally related to my character......

Rose on November 01, 2017:

This is so true. Although, as a Taurus lady, I feel like it is quite upsetting that people always think that we are made out of stone, that we can handle everything. We are people too, we have a heart and emotions. A little compassion and willingness to understand goes a long way :)

Anam on September 19, 2017:

Its all about me as a taurus woman Feel proud

Leonix on August 17, 2017:

This is so damn true...

OwlLegendary000 on July 27, 2017:

I am a Taurus, but food is not my favorite thing in the world. You must know that not every Taurean is like that. Personalities don't depend on your zodiac sign, they depend on your choices and who you choose to be.

Caribbean Bull on May 20, 2017:

"Taurus people usually love planning ahead of time, because they don't like to be caught doing nothing with their lives." - OMG, this is so me! I'm a Taurus. They say that Taureans are stubborn, have strong sense of justice, and loyal. I like to think that they are also true for me, LOL! Your hub is so interesting. Voting it up and awesome!
