15 most common Taurus weaknesses

Right, let’s get stuck in. And just to warn you, we’re not going to hold back on this one…

1. Stubborn.

Ah, Taureans – the epitome of stubbornness. You’ll never find a group more steadfast in their opinions and beliefs than those born under this sign. While it’s true that some of the less desirable traits associated with Taurus can be attributed to strong will, there’s usually an underlying reason why people of this zodiac sign are so headstrong. The main reason why Taureans are so stubborn is that they tend to be quite risk-averse. They don’t take decision-making lightly, preferring instead to take their time, weigh all the options, and consider all the potential outcomes before committing to anything. Unfortunately, this can lead to them getting stuck in a rut, as they’re unwilling to take chances or try something new. Anyone who has a Taurus friend knows that once they’ve decided something, they won’t be changing their mind any time soon. Anyone born under this sign should just try to keep a bit more of an open mind.

2. Lazy.

Taurus is an Earth sign, meaning they are naturally connected to the physical world. Many Taureans tend to be quite laid back, preferring comfort and security rather than taking chances or trying something new. This can lead to a tendency towards laziness, as Taurus will not take action unless they are guaranteed security from it. They may also prefer to do things in their own time and can be slow to make decisions, due to their need for security. Additionally, Taureans may refuse to adapt or change their lifestyle even if they are presented with an opportunity that could benefit them in the long run. This often results in a lack of motivation and ambition, leaving the Taurus stuck in their comfort zone. Taureans should try to remember that just because they are comfortable doesn’t mean they shouldn’t try new things and put themselves out there. Life is for living!

3. Materialistic.

Anyone who knows a Taurus will know they like nice things.  Taureans are incredibly loyal and practical folks who take comfort in the tangible things around them. They’re often drawn to the security that money can bring and having things of monetary value can give Taureans a sense of accomplishment. Plus, they just like to have nice things. Taureans are known for appreciating beauty, so it’s no wonder that they’d be drawn to luxuries. So if you want to understand why Taureans might be a bit materialistic, it’s because they’re looking for security, accomplishment, and the feeling of being surrounded by beauty. For some, this can be off-putting as not everyone values luxurious items and flashing the cash. It’s good for Taureans to bear this in mind, and to try to keep their obvious love of luxury to a (tasteful) minimum where possible.

4. Posessiveness.

Taureans are known to be possessive because they want to make sure that their possessions and relationships are secure. They don’t like change, so it can be difficult for them to accept when things don’t go as expected. Being possessive also ensures that Taureans remain in control, which reflects their natural stubbornness and aversion to surprises. Additionally, they may be trying to protect themselves from the pain of loss, so it’s best for them to remember that change can lead to growth and opportunity. Ultimately, Taureans should strive for balance when it comes to their possessiveness. While it’s important to maintain security and stability; letting go of control can open up a world of possibilities.

5. Short tempered.

Taureans are notoriously short-tempered, and it can be a bit of a challenge for them to keep their cool. This is because Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of emotions, which means that Taureans often have strong feelings and reactions when something upsets them. They also tend to be very stubborn and fixed in their opinions, so when something doesn’t go their way it can be difficult for them to adjust or accept a different point of view. On top of all that, Taureans are naturally very headstrong and tend to want to get things done their way – which can lead to frustration if they feel like someone is trying to infringe on their independence. All of these things can add up to a short fuse. You have been warned!

6. Jealous.

Taureans are known for being jealous people. They can feel threatened if they see someone else getting something that they want or having something that they don’t have. At times, it can lead to irrational behavior and even verbal arguments as a way of expressing their disapproval of the situation. Taureans are also very stubborn, and if someone tries to take away something from them they feel that they rightfully own, they will fight tooth and nail to win back what is theirs. This often comes out as jealousy in their behavior. Taureans need to nip their jealous feelings in the bud before they spiral out of control and negatively affect the relationships in their life!

7. Dependant.

Taureans can be dependent on their relationships because they often become overly attached to people and things. Taureans often put too much trust in others without fully thinking through the consequences of their decisions, which can lead them into situations where they may become dependent on others for support. Additionally, Taureans tend to be very comfort-oriented, which can make them too content relying on the same routine or habits and make it difficult for them to try something new. Even when presented with a chance to grow and develop, Taureans may be resistant because of their aversion to change. Ultimately, this combination of trust and complacency leads many Taureans to become dependent on the people and things around them. It’s always good to keep an element of independence, and all Taureans should remember that you can’t rely on everyone around you to get things done.

8. Self-absorbed.

Taureans can be self-absorbed because they love to do exactly what they want, exactly when they want. This can be both a strength and a weakness, depending on the situation. They can get too wrapped up in their own ideas and thoughts and have the inability to think of other people’s thoughts as equally as valid as their own. Taureans can also think that their way is the only way of thinking. They can often be stubborn and refuse to compromise, even if that would make a situation better. In extreme cases, they become so rigid in their thinking that there’s no way to reach an agreement. Taureans tend to think that their ideas are the right ideas, and they aren’t willing to budge. They would benefit from being a little less self-absorbed and being open to other ways of thinking. Instead of assuming that they are the only right person, Taureans should remind themselves that other people’s ideas can be just as valid as their own.

9. Selfish.

As Taurus is known for being one of the most stubborn and possessive zodiac signs, it’s no surprise that Taureans often come across as selfish. They can be fiercely protective over what they care about, quick to defend their beliefs, and adamant about getting things done in their own way. Plus, Taureans tend to appreciate the finer things in life and appreciate material possessions, so it’s not unheard of for them to be a little too self-centered when it comes to getting what they want. If you’re dealing with a Taurus, just remember that their selfishness is usually rooted in wanting safety and security. Taureans of the world – don’t forget to put other people’s needs first now and then. It’s good to remind yourself that there are other people with needs just as important as yours.

10. Over indulgent.

Taureans are overindulgent because they don’t like to deny themselves anything pleasurable. They want to enjoy life and are willing to go the extra mile to do so, which can lead to an overconsumption of things that bring them comfort or pleasure. Doing what they like, buying what they like, and eating what they like, all come naturally to a Taurus. They’re not in the business of denying themselves anything they want, and they won’t be told ‘no’ by anyone else. They value comfort and luxury and this can sometimes come across as materialistic or over-indulgent. It might be helpful for Taureans to understand that sometimes in life they will have to compromise. You can’t always have what you want!

11. Inflexible.

Let’s face it, Taurus is one of the most inflexible signs of the zodiac. They often have a hard time accepting new ideas if they don’t fit their existing belief system or worldview. They’re also quite set in their ways and find comfort in doing things the same way, no matter how inefficient or outdated it may be. This can often be a source of frustration for family, friends, and coworkers. It’s important to remember that this inflexibility isn’t personal – it’s just how Taurus rolls. Taureans need to be open and willing to try things different ways, and to appreciate other people’s thoughts.

12. Insecure.

Despite the fact that Taureans are known to be very secure in their beliefs, they can also suffer from insecurity. Taurus is a fixed sign, meaning that they dislike change and resist it fiercely. This resistance to change can lead to feelings of insecurity when faced with unexpected or unfamiliar situations. If everything they know is thrown into the air and they are facing instability, they can lash out. This comes from a place of insecurity. Additionally, Taureans may feel insecure about their appearance and material possessions, always striving to be better and better. They also tend to be very stubborn in their opinions, which can cause conflict with others and make them feel vulnerable. Taureans – remember that you don’t have to be totally in control the whole time. If you’re presented with something new or unfamiliar, see it as a challenge to master, not a setback to avoid.

13. Inability to let things go.

When it comes to sweating the small stuff, Taureans come up top. They aren’t very good at letting things go and can struggle to move on from past mistakes or disappointments. They often get stuck in the same patterns of behavior and thoughts, and they lack the ability to let go of grudges. This can make it very difficult for them to create a positive outlook on life and keep their minds open to new possibilities. They also tend to be highly sensitive and can take things too personally and become overly defensive or easily hurt. Finally, as we know, Taureans are notorious for being stubborn and set in their ways, which can make it difficult for them to compromise or collaborate with others. All of this can lead to a lot of inner turmoil and dissatisfaction if left unchecked.

14. Domineering.

Well, the stereotype of Taureans is that they can be a bit domineering and stubborn. This is largely due to their overwhelming need for security and stability in their lives. Because of this, they can sometimes come across as bossy or rigid when trying to maintain control over their environment. They also have a strong desire for comfort, luxury, and pleasure in life. As such, they can be possessive of their belongings and sometimes overly cautious when it comes to taking risks or venturing out of their comfort zone. It would be good for Taureans to take a step back and to acknowledge when they start to act a little bit domineering and overbearing. Pump the breaks and remind yourself that you can let things go a little bit.

15. Irritable.

Taureans are irritable because they are a combination of being passionate and sensitive. You won’t catch a Taurean backing down from what they believe in. This can be a great strength when used correctly, but it can also lead to some minor but powerful outbursts of emotion. If they feel like they aren’t in control, or they’re facing something unfamiliar or unknown, their insecurity can manifest in the form of irritability. They feel any emotional disturbance deeply, so if someone or something poses a threat to their security or sense of stability, they won’t hesitate to express their displeasure in an aggressive manner. It takes a lot for a Taurean to admit when they’re wrong, so it’s no wonder why things can get a bit tense.
