Best gifts: The newest tech toy pleases the Bull’s drive for getting (and inputting) as much data as possible about their lives. Taurus also loves luxury and can’t resist a high-end box of chocolates or something special from a high-end boutique. Finally, Bulls love getting out in nature and are happy with any hiking accessories that let them explore the earth.
Best spa package: A long massage or pampering pedicure. Taureans can’t get enough physical touch.
Best cocktail: A Moscow Mule or gin and tonic—with extra limes, please. Stiff drinks match the Bulls work-hard, play-hard mentality, but a Taurean can’t resist presentation and loves the copper-mug allure of a Moscow Mule.
Whether it's a long nap, a Saturday morning snooze fest, or a weekend on the couch, Taurus is the master of relaxation. Doing it with a plus one? Even better. But Taurus isn’t a couch potato. They’re intense even in their leisure pursuits and love having an end goal, whether it’s training and completing a marathon, going on a long weekend hike, or doing a month-long yoga challenge.
A Bull’s social circle is likely to include a few friends they met in kindergarten, because once Taurus decides that someone is worth including in their life, they're friends forever. Bulls love spending time in a small social circle of friends they know; they can feel claustrophobic at a club or packed bar. When it comes to weekend relaxation, Taureans love balance. They love socializing but also self-improvement, and they think nothing of spending a few weekend hours catching up on work projects.
Even though Taurus is born at the end of spring, they love the cozy-up-under-the-covers feeling of winter. The Bull isn’t afraid of snow or cold, and loves the feeling of fresh air and wind on their face. For a Taurus, a day outdoors followed by a night by the fire, hopefully cuddled skin-on-skin with their favorite plus one under a cozy blanket, is pretty much perfect. And forget about dreary days; Taureans see the sometimes-dull days of winter as an ideal time to hunker down and finish a project.
Can you say spa-aah? This work-hard, play-hard sign is all about well-earned R&R and loves spending an entire day camped out under a beach umbrella at an exotic resort. The hotel is part of the adventure, too, and a Taurean takes notice (and delights!) in high thread count sheets, rain showerheads, and plenty of room service options. While Taurus will happily go on an adventure travel vacation, where they’ll take the lead on a twelve-mile hike or kayak for hours, they like knowing there’s a cozy, private room at the end of the journey.
Taurus is persistent, driven, and fiercely loyal. The colors that best exemplify these traits are:
Pink: Think of the pinkish-orange after a brilliant sunset. This hue—a sign that the Bull is stalwart even after a fiery upheaval—shows Taurus' loyalty and no-drama lifestyle, and is a great color to wear (or choose as an accessory) to project that calm demeanor at a job interview.
Blue: While the color may seem tranquil, like a calm ocean, blue represents that there’s a lot underneath Taurus' surface, hinting at the inner life that a Taurean is happy to share—once they decide to let you in.
Green: Just like their emerald gemstone, green addresses Taurus' solid anchorage is to the earth and their own divine Truth. Wearing this color is especially key in high-pressure situations, where Bulls can feel calmed by remembering who they are.
Purple: Historically the color of royalty, purple appeals to luxury-loving Taurus, who's one of the signs with enough panache to pull it off.
The colors that Taurus should avoid are:
Red: This intense color is too much for low-drama Taurus.
Gold: Hardworking Taurus doesn’t necessarily seek out the spotlight, and this color can feel too showy for Bulls.
Black: Taurus can veer toward pessimistic, and the color black can bring out that fatalistic quality in a way that may be off-putting to others.
