Taurus can be confusing, and nothing seems to bother them. They love to get into an argument, just for the heck of it, for sheer entertainment. Otherwise, they don't really care to get into a conflict - for one simple reason: it is a waste of time, and not worth sacrificing their comforts, or peace of mind.
Make no mistake about it, this sign is not depicted as the Bull for nothing. As difficult as they are to be irked, when pushed beyond their limit, the Taurus will charge like a Bull. With the makings of a serial killer, the Taurus is considered the deadliest of signs - if, and that is a "big if", they decide to react. They are tolerant, super slow, lazy, and their stubbornness is way beyond measure! They love their comforts too much to think of anything else. But they are dedicated. If the Taurus is hurt beyond their limit of tolerance, they dedicate themselves into a revenge, plan all actions and counter-actions, and wait for the opportune moment - to "perform" their revenge.
Want to anger a Taurus?
They can be a raging bull!
Angering Taurus might take a while, considering they are grounded, tolerant and very patient. But they are possessive by nature, which probably provides the best way to irk them. Also, if they are asked to change their mind ... the less said the better!
Invasion of space or property (lovers/spouses are considered their property) is not appreciated. Messing with their furnitures, phones, gadgets, computers - especially valuable looking things - would be playing with Taurean tolerance. Disrupting their daily rituals might cause a flare up. And if that is not enough, flirt with their lover/spouse to completely get under their skin. A word of caution, it might take a while but when they are finally angered, they will charge - usually, not instantly.
Taurus' perfect revenge
It takes a lot to anger the Taurean but once done, there is no stopping the raging bull. They forget nothing. If they are pushed over the edge, they will avenge their current offence, plus all the previous offences they have tolerated (or even avenged), plus interest. As if they maintain a ledger book for everybody, the Taurus explosion builds slowly but surely. It is best to stay away from the Taurus' bad book. While it is infrequent for this fixed earth sign to be angered, they may be violent when their Mars (masculinity) and the Moon (emotions) are posited in an air or fire sign.
Taurus hardly trusts, and easily un-trusts. A Taurus is understanding, loyal and a heart friend who can be relied upon. They are super loyal and caring about people they love, and they are ever-tolerant by nature. But if they are hurt in a manner that they can't forgive, a revenge is bound to follow - someday in the future. They will strike, only with the best laid plans, and only when it hurts the most. They can wait for years, even decades, to exact a revenge - and when the moment comes, their revenge is usually too well-planned to fail, and clinically executed to every detail - leaving no room for a 'second bout'. The very reason that this lazy sign invests great time, planning, and effort to exact a revenge is to make sure that they do not have to face a similar dispute in the future. These 'silent killers' are infamously credited with 'unsolved mystery cases', while they withdraw into their world of comforts - without a finger pointing towards them.
Tauruses hold their grudges for a very long time, and that is a good thing because it provides a lot of time to ask for forgiveness. Depending on the offence, they do not forgive easily.
On the other hand, Taurus is emotional. If you have unwittingly hurt a Taurus, you have time to ask (not beg) for forgiveness. They tend to forgive when played emotionally, or when you can justify your actions. But they dislike drama, and most of all 'lying' or 'crying' - which they consider as a failure to stand up and own your actions. Just like their 'slow to build' rage, the Taurean forgiveness is as complex. They would forgive in a manner that the dispute never happened at all. But, if violated again (beyond the edge), they 'cancel' all their previous forgivings and come out with a revenge for all your previous offences - even the ones that you had completely forgotten about!
Testing the Taurus endurance
Small, irritating things that no Taurus can withstand
|Try to act nervously beside them, like "crack-crack" with you fingers, or eat your fingernails (chick-chick), or wriggle your foot - and try to transfer your nervousness to them. Also, they are strong creatures and usually get well quick. If they are down with fever (or some other ailment), act nervous and keep asking if they are okay - maybe every hour.|
|Try decorative touches to their possessions, or suggest changes - like, "Surprise! See how I did your living room when you were away","Why don't you paint the interior pink, it will look better. Please, I insist", etc.|
|Try to prove that they do not remember something, when they are sure that they remember exactly what happened - like, "She was wearing a red shoe, you don't remember well. It was red, not blue" when it was blue, and they remember it.|
|Try to assure that you know the directions to a place, and then get "lost" on the way. Maybe, even refuse to ask somebody for directions because you think you can figure it in your GPS mobile - which you cannot.|
|Try taking control of the remote when they are lazily watching the television - and change the channel without asking if they were watching something. Also, keep changing the channels every other minute, zapping in fast rhythm.|
|In general, any attempt to challenge their basic Taurean traits, will anger or irritate them. For example: nagging them, committing something and then not following through, being rushed, expecting them to rearrange their schedule for you, stealing their food, etc.|
Best way to get them back in mood
For Taurus, there is nothing more pleasurable than emotional care - and that means something soft, something tasty and something enjoyable. A treat of "comfort foods" - pizza, fried chicken, pasta or a chocolate cake - does wonder. A generous serving of homemade favourites will surely relax the Taurus more. And, if the type of relationship allows it, you can follow it up in the bedroom.
Note that the above observations are mere solar-scopic indicators based on generic Taurus traits and behaviours, and do not consider the other planets of an individual's Natal Chart required for real Horoscopic readings. Other planets may enhance, suppress, and even nullify certain Taurus behaviours.
Also remember, anger is a basic human emotion and revenge is a reaction to anger. Each sign has a different response to anger, with differing approaches. Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) will explode in fury, then be hanging out with you again the next day. Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) will mope around for a while, but get over it if a sincere apology is offered (with the exception of Scorpio, who might never forgive you). Air signs (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini) will distance themselves or resort to the silent treatment. Earth signs (Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo) will not forgive so easily, these signs can hold a grudge for decades depending on the offense.
