For those who believe in it, astrology can be a powerful tool for introspection and self-knowledge — or you can use it to talk shit about your ex and obsess over your crush. Journey with us as we do both, and then head to the comments to live your truth.

Tauruses are grounded and cozy and love snacks, which is excellent. I’ve never dated a Taurus but I lived with one and our house was EXTREMELY well cared for and well decorated. And there were a lot of snacks!

Archie is the only Taurus I’ve ever dated, and I’m not at all putting on a show when I say it’s the absolute best. The best thing about dating tauruses is that they don’t really sweat the small stuff. They’re all about comfort, and doing things that feel good, and they prioritize those things not only for themselves but for their partner as well! They are pretty direct and open about their own wants and needs, and good at fulfilling mine in all the ways they say that they will. I feel like a Taurus is a partner you can count on being there with care through all the bad stuff and celebrating the hell out of all of the good.
The worst part about dating a Taurus is that they are stubborn babies.

My first ever girlfriend was a Taurus and to be honest beyond a particularly stubborn streak I didn’t really pick up on very much stereotypical Taurean behavior. In general I tend to like Taurii, at least on a friendship level. They can hang.

I’ve never dated a Taurus but think I would really like it? I’m very into consistency and stability, and I think dating a Taurus might take some of the onus off me of being the main provider of those things in a relationship. Tell yr Taurus friends!

Positive: Ride or die, and nurturing without being like, suffocating? They’re very practical.
Negative: they kinda get stagnant and are hella moody.

I married a Taurus and let me tell you, it was the best decision I’ve made. Living with a Taurus means you’ll always have nice things, even if sometimes they can’t afford them. They enjoy staying in and eating good food, being your ride or die, being right, and for everything in their life to make sense and have a place. If you have a tendency to lose your keys or your sunglasses or your mind, a Taurus will remember where to look. If a Taurus doesn’t like you, you’ll know. If they like you, you’ll know. I like that. I don’t find that Tauruses are overly emotional. They are practical, but also romantic. They remind me of that Mean Girls quote when Regina is talking about Aaron Samuels and how “”all he cares about is school and his mom and his friends””. Tauruses LOVE their friends. And they marry their friends. But also when you marry them, you marry their friends, so make sure you like their friends.
Negative: They are really stubborn. Just incredibly, annoyingly stubborn and set in their ways. They can be hard to drag out of their tiny little comfort zones. In that sense, you really need to learn how to trick Tauruses into adventure. I hope that doesn’t sound evil. I mean trick in the nicest possible way. Maybe I mean incept? Make them think it was their idea to try say BBQ sauce finally at age 30. With Tauruses you have to learn to pick your battles.

Dating a Taurus can be very wonderful, and I say that as a Gemini who is supposedly not compatible with Tauruses sexually/romantically. Full disclosure: My relationship with a Taurus ended very dramatically. But before it did, I enjoyed the Taurus’s love of adventure, comfort, and fierce way of loving. Yes, she was stubborn and also averse to change. But she brought out a very fun and uninhibited side of myself.
