A Glimpse at Dark Side of a Taurus
Who is Taurus?
Before delving into Taurus negative features, let’s have a look at this zodiac sign and its common characteristics.
Individuals born between April 21 and May 20 and symbolized by the Bull are called Taurus (or Taureans). Associated with Earth element, these people are influenced the characteristics of steadfastness, dependability, endurance, protection, and patience. They are extremely stubborn, strong-headed, rigid, inflexible, materialistic, and raging when provoked.
There’s even a saying goes: “Left along, a Bull happily grazes, but it will chare if being bothered!” Also, they are deep thinkers, and this is not always a good thing, because they have the tendency to over think everything.
They believe in loyalty and take love very seriously. However they can be possessive and probably show strong jealousy if they sense the insecure. Negative traits of Taurus, when it comes to love romance, like stubbornness and illogical insistence might lead to stalemate once jealousy is involved.
What are Taurus bad traits?
Taurus at their worst are obsessed with their own comfort while compulsively spending money on their both physical and material desires (food and luxury items). Well, these individuals have a huge appetite for everything; they just dislike working for it. Because they don’t want to be uncomfortable, they can become lazy and messy sometimes.
They must be careful not to let their sedentary life overcome them to the point where it’s too much trouble to even go out for fun. In addition, they don’t care if there’s a line of cars waiting behind, as they are going to go as slowly as they want.
These people can be found at all hours of the day standing in front of a mirror trying to catch slight imperfections. They will then try a new-to-the-market topical cream to address those blemishes.
Now, take a look at several Taurus bad traits, including a few negative qualities we’ve just mentioned in the earlier, as the following:
As we all know, stubbornness is one of key traits of a Taurean. Easy going and respectful, but Taurus can be stubborn and rigid in their approach. It is impossible to move them from their decisions once they’ve made up their mind.
Astrologically, the root of their stubbornness comes from their desire of comfort and fear of change. You can easily realize when they are stubborn because it can be manifested in plenty of ways. Especially when Taurus natives are suffering from emotional issues, they will shut down, stay distant from everyone, and keep saying “I’m fine” consistently.
True Taurus stubborn nature irritating people is why they engage in an argument or a fight. Never expect them to back down because they will make you give up first. One they decide to do anything, it won’t be changed.
They tend to be rude and ignorant of others’ emotions, also.
It is good to value money, yet Taurus born sometimes takes it too far and becomes frugal; maybe because future is extremely important for them.
On the other hand, some Taureans are prone to be self-indulgent, especially when it comes to purchasing things for themselves. Influenced by their prominent traits, they love finer things in life and when being surrounded with beauty. Rather than taking camping or adventurous trips, they prefer spending time in a wonderful resort.
Because of their big love for beauty, some even question why Taurus hate ugly people but of course that’s just one of misconceptions about the Bull natives.
This is the major negative trait which often leads to jealousy and resentment. The more they love their partner, the more possessive they become. Although they are not explicitly jealous, they view their mates as their personal property.
Why Taurus is so possessive?
Many question this, but please understand that Taurus possessive personality is a natural attitude that comes from the zodiac sign. On the bright side, possessiveness means they truly care for and protective of their loved ones. However, their insecurity is too much making them become jealous when seeing others with their partner.
4. Emotionally closed off
If you look for an appropriate term, then it’s probably emotionally detachment. Unlike Gemini or Leo who easily become the soul of the party, Taurus is the kind of person that will sit in the corner of the room and not make any conversation with anyone. In other words, don’t expect them to be the center of attention.
It’s not simple to get a Taurus to open up due to their insecurity and uncertainty. They need a long period to form close relationships with people around. In addition, they don’t like to have a huge social circle; it’s better to be with few but true friends.
For Taureans, nothing is above their self-respect. They are quick to get into revenge-mode if their ego is hurt. Keep in mind that the Bulls never forgive and forget, and obviously can’t take anybody insulting them at all.
So generally what are Taurus worst traits?
A negative Taurus usually focuses on their own needs at the end of the day. Because of their possessiveness, they are a selfish person to others. They can be stubborn, insensitive, or arrogant at times, but they are still best known for their generosity, as well as caring and loving nature.
With their easygoing and hardworking nature, plus sensuality, you can get attracted to Taurus individuals in a moment.
