Broken up with an easygoing Taurus? Then you must really have been pushing it some! Taurus has a reputation for being quite placid and sweet-natured and it takes a lot to make it lose its rag. When that happens it can be quite scary – and a bit of a surprise. Few people are aware of the sheer force of a Taurus’s hidden anger until they’ve been on the receiving end!
So what’s behind this duality? Well, on the one hand Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, for which reason it prefers a harmonious existence and will normally do its best to avoid unpleasantness. At the same time, of course, it’s also the fixed earth sign – which probably makes Taurus the most inflexible sign in the Zodiac!
What you need to understand is that Taurus, more than any other sign, has its feet firmly anchored in the ground. For this reason, trying to get a Taurean to budge when they have dug in their heels is not only pointless and frustrating, it’s also inviting big trouble. If you’ve ever incurred the wrath of a charging bull, you’ll know that it’s something to avoid!
If you’ve been dumped by a Taurus, it’s often because you’ve made the mistake of trying to get it to move too fast. The bull – the symbol of Taurus – is a strong-willed animal that hates to be hurried and won’t be prodded into making any kind of decisions until it’s good and ready.
On the other hand, once it is finally set on a course of action, Taurus isn’t one to change its mind. You can try every trick in the book to persuade this sign to do a flip, but the stoical Bull won’t bat a gorgeous eyelash. Not, that is, until its admirable patience finally snaps and you’re treated to one of Taurus’s famous tirades.
How else might you have landed yourself in trouble with a Taurus? Well, maybe by making things a bit too over-complicated and overlooking the simple basics that make a relationship work for this sign. Good food and good sex, in that order, are all a Taurus really needs to be happy – and you can rest assured that they most definitely won’t be happy if either are in short supply.
Once you’ve been dumped by a Taurus, don’t expect to be able to get back together again in the twinkling of an eye. Just as it takes a long time for Taurus to decide to break up, it will also take quite a while for it to cool down and be ready to make up. To win back your Taurus ex, try tempting them with offers of gourmet dinners, a great massage or an ostentatiously expensive gift. Because yes, with Taurus, sometimes money really can buy you love!
