Taurus Traits | Birthday | Pantone ColorsMay 17, 2016
If you know a Taurus, then hold onto them for life,
there is no other love like a Taurus love!
May is my birthday month, well you already know this if you follow me on Instagram (or of course know me personally). During the course of the last two weeks, I have been meeting other fellow May babies to celebrate our birthdays together. And somehow, during our dates, us being Taureans was a topic of discussion at one point or another (not that I am complaining). Though not everyone is a strong believer of sun signs, everybody entertained the thought for sure, some even curious to know what our strong traits are. So here I am, writing about it instead, so the next time someone asks, I can simply direct them towards this post, haha (just kidding of course). I am only highlighting Taurean strengths here, because they more than make up for the weaknesses ;)
Taurus Dates: April 21 to May 21
Symbol: The bull
Be advised though, I am no expert on the subject; these top six traits mentioned here are based merely on the fact that I am a Taurean myself and a lot of reading about the sun sign. Though I do know quite a few Taureans who do not match many of my descriptions below.
I, for one, am a proud Taurean...
Stubborn you said, then look no further. Taurus and stubborn are more like synonyms. Though being stubborn is regarded as a weakness, I like to think that we are extremely driven which is where our stubbornness stems from. We know exactly what we want and won’t give up until we reach our goal(s). Once our mind is made up there is no turning back (for good or bad).
We come with a no nonsense disclaimer. I often smile when I hear, ‘a Taurean speaks two things; sarcasm and realness’ (cuz it’s true). We won’t talk behind your back because we will do it in front of you, to your face. Talk to us only if you are genuine and real, because as they say, we can smell bullshit from a mile away!
Quality over quantity is our mantra. May it be our friends, the company we surround ourselves with, the things in our closet (or even reading blog posts haha), quality definitely wins. Acquaintances may be many but friends are few, we keep them close to our heart and guard them with our lives.
Being organized comes naturally to us. We are excellent planners and always want to know what lies ahead. Yet, we can be full of surprises too. Need a party planner, then look no further, we are creative, as focused as a bull, can get shit done, and at the same time know how to have fun (we work hard and party harder).
We no doubt enjoy the finer things in life and yet treasure the simple things just as much (if not more). Our love for beautiful things, good food, good wine might seem materialistic, but most times a small gesture or a hug is all it takes to bring a smile on our face. In short, we know how to LIVE life.
There you have it, and today, I am also sharing with you the pictures of what I wore for my birthday dinner with the hubs. I am obsessed with the Pantone colors of 2016, not because they are Pantone approved but because they look absolutely beautiful together and are a personal favorite - Rose Quartz and Serenity (aka rose pink and blue in layman’s terms ;)). Mix and match these delightful pastel colors for a chic look!
If you know a Taurean who fits the bill, then lucky you, if they don’t then tell me how they are different?
Stay tuned to know where I celebrated my birthday weekend…
