How Does a Taurus Woman Behave When She Is Upset?

Taurus is known as the anchor of the zodiac. They cherish stability and find comfort in consistency. So what happens when a Taurus woman’s sense of security is disturbed? How does a Taurus woman act when she is upset?

Being upset can result in two fundamental emotional reactions: anger and sadness. Craving stability, it is not easy to provoke a Taurus woman to anger. But when pushed beyond her limit of tolerance, beware! She will charge like a raging bull and she may hold a grudge afterwards. When a Taurus woman is sad, she tends to withdraw and seek solitude. She may feel like the whole world is against her and that nothing is going right. She needs time to regroup before engaging with the world again.

Now that we have a general idea of what to expect when a Taurus woman is upset, let’s delve deeper into the specifics. What things might incite a Taurus woman’s anger? What might make her sad or depressed? What can you do about it?

Let’s begin with a brief overview of Taurus.

Overview of Taurus

Taurus is the sign of the bull. It is an earth element, meaning that Taureans are grounded. 

Like the bull, Taureans enjoy relaxing, particularly in peaceful, beautiful settings, surrounded by soothing music, delicious food, and luxurious comforts. Pleasure is a necessity for Taureans, and they feel most content when pampered.

Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and money. The influence of Venus makes Taurus the most sensual of the zodiac signs.

As friends, Taurus women are trustworthy and dependable. In the workplace, they are ambitious, focused, and resilient.

Taurus is a fixed sign, an astrological quality that reflects Taurus’s steadfast, loyal nature. Taurus women prioritize consistency and reliability in all areas of their lives.

Taurus is famous for being stubborn. But their stubbornness is due to strong will and determination. This makes them strong and unwavering. Because of this, Taurus women may linger in unhealthy situations – be it romantic relationships, friendships, workplace environments, or homes – longer than necessary just to prove a point.

Taurus women also have a possessive side and at times can overwhelm romantic partners with their doting showering affection.

Now that we have a basic understanding of the Taurus zodiac sign, let’s explore what might provoke a Taurus woman to anger. What causes the raging bull to charge?

What Makes a Taurus Woman Angry?

It is difficult to pinpoint exactly what will push a Taurus woman past her level of tolerance and into anger. Is it one particular thing, a combination of things, or repetition of something that is irksome to her? The truth is that the answer is all of the above. 

Whether or not anger is triggered depends on several factors, such as her overall mood and level of stress. For example, Taurus women do not like being hungry. It stands to reason, then, that if you do something that bothers her when she already is hungry, it would elicit a stronger response than if you do the same thing when she is not hungry.

Fortunately, when it comes down to it, Taurus women just want peace and quiet. Craving stability, they don’t try to rock the boat, so when someone provokes them, it has to be something really bad. Of course, really bad is a relative term. What is something really bad for her might not seem like an offense at all to you.

What are examples of these really bad things?

Generally speaking, anything that poses a threat to a Taurus woman’s sense of security and stability will push her over the edge.

  • Sudden or unexpected changes
  • Challenges to her sense of control
  • Disrupting her daily rituals
  • Being rushed
  • Interrupting her concentration
  • Interrupting her speech
  • Being asked to change her mind
  • Invading her space or property

Taurus women find comfort in their daily rituals. Therefore, rushing them or interrupting them while engaged in these rituals is bound to elicit anger. Being asked to change her mind threatens her sense of control. Similarly, rearranging furniture without her input, tampering with her phone or computer, or general monkeying with valuable-looking things all represent unexpected changes.

A major thing that can provoke anger in a Taurus woman is betrayal of their trust. Examples of this include:

  • Lying and deception
  • Unfaithfulness
  • Someone flirting with their lover or spouse
  • Being blamed for things that they didn’t do

Betrayal of trust would be a major blow for just about anyone, but it particularly affects Taurus women. This is because they are very loyal, tolerant, and caring toward people they love. In their minds, they already have endured a plethora of minor offenses by you, but have chosen not to focus on them in lieu of maintaining the peace. So they view betraying their trust as a devaluing, or outright rejection, of all of the times that they have been tolerant of you. It is a double blow.

Finally, people who refuse to take responsibility for their own actions, who exhibit a lack of common sense, or willingly show ignorance, also anger Taurus.

How Do Taurus Women Deal with Conflict?

Conflict is inevitable in any friendship or relationship. Taurus women most often try to stay away from conflict with loved ones or co-workers, because the strong influence of Venus means that they desire to make them happy in any way possible.

There is a difference of degree between debate, disagreement, arguments and fights. A Taurus woman will easily get into a debate with you and ardently defend her position. However, she can sometimes take discussions a little too far, letting her stubbornness take over and turning something interesting into something annoying. In this regard, she becomes her own worst enemy.

Taurus women have a tendency to draw out debates until they become exhausting, but she really just likes to prove her point. Whether she is trying to stand up for herself or just let you know that whatever the two of you are talking about is important to her, her inability to drop things until she’s satisfied can be off-putting.

While Taurus women usually seek to avoid confrontation, her vigorous debating style can feel like confrontation to the other person, causing them to be defensive and lash out. The debates then can evolve into disagreements, arguing, and fighting. Things can be said by both parties that are hurtful.

How Do Taurus Women Behave when They Are Angry?

Although it is difficult to identify what will provoke her at any given moment, rest assured, you will quickly realize that you have made a huge mistake when a Taurus woman is angry. If they are pushed over the edge, she will avenge your current offense, plus all the previous offenses that she has tolerated (even ones that you were unaware of).

It is a good time to be careful what you say.

The influence of Venus usually means that Taurus women will be quick, if not eager, to forgive your transgressions. If you make her angry, she will discuss the problem, and will eventually say that she forgives you. However, the legendary stubbornness of Taurus comes into play here as well. Once you make a Taurus woman angry, there is a decent chance that she will stubbornly hold onto that anger for a long time, sometimes for life.

Angered Taurus women have a tendency to hold grudges, at times to the point of seeking revenge. She might say that she forgives you, but she is not about to forget what you have done. She definitely will put you on a long probationary period, watching carefully to see if you make the same mistake again.

What Makes a Taurus Woman Sad or Depressed?

First, all of the things that make her angry also can make her sad. In fact, depression often follows a flare up of anger. 

Overall, a Taurus woman likes peace and quiet. When this is disturbed, she might be angry in the short term. But in the long term she might blame herself, viewing it as her failure to shower those important to her with love and affection. This can lead to sadness and depression.

Taurus women become depressed when they are not surrounded by beauty. They need art, music, flowers and ambiance to inspire them.

In their perfect world, Taurus women would spend all day bathing in a tub overflowing with essential oils. It therefore stands to reason that situations that interfere or deprive her of the things that she cherishes would make her sad and depressed. Some examples include:

  • A controlling romantic partner.
  • A friend or romantic partner that does not share her love of beautiful things.
  • Any situation that stifles creativity.
  • A sloppy romantic partner, friend, or coworker.
  • A workplace composed of drab cubicles.
  • A micromanaging supervisor or boss.
  • Being required to attend dull perfunctory meetings.
  • Living in a run-down house/apartment or neighborhood.
  • Noisy neighbors.
  • Overbearing in-laws.

This is not to imply that a Taurus woman cannot tolerate these and other similar situations, only that she would not be happy with them. Once a Taurus woman has chosen you as a friend or romantic partner, their loyal, genuine nature means they are in it for the long haul. They will resort to Herculean efforts to preserve the friendship or relationship even if it means that they are unhappy. At times, this leaves them vulnerable to being taken advantage of or emotionally abused, further exasperating their sadness.

How Does a Taurus Woman Act when She Is Sad or Depressed?

A common scene in movies is the following interaction.

“What’s wrong?” he queries, noticing that she appears to be bothered by something.

“Nothing,” she replies with a sigh. 

Of course, the tone of her reply suggests that everything is wrong!

This describes a Taurus woman perfectly.

Because Taurus women don’t like conflict, they tend not to communicate and tell their romantic partners or friends when and why they are upset. They attempt to maintain a sense of stability even when it’s just a facade.

If you have managed to make a Taurus woman sad, she will tend to seek solitude, both physically and emotionally. She won’t want to be in your presence. You will have to wait for her to overcome her sadness before she is ready to interact again.

Don’t expect her to tell you just how much you have hurt her. If you try to force the issue, it likely will provoke anger. Respect that a Taurus woman needs her solitude to understand her feelings and overcome her sadness.

Another way that she might escape is by nurturing various vices. Among these are gorging on junk food, ice cream, or chocolate. She might also indulge in a full spa treatment or go on a shopping spree lasting several days. 

On the other hand, she might seek out her favorite hobbies like reading or going on a hike to distract her mind.

How Do You Apologize to a Taurus Woman?

The good news is that Taurus women are not unreasonable. They actually want to please the people that are important to them and will welcome the opportunity to reconcile with you. Below are eleven steps to take when seeking forgiveness.

  1. Respect her need for solitude. She needs time to process through her anger or sadness and to restore a sense of equilibrium. However, don’t give her so much space that you appear to be ignoring her. This will send the wrong message that you do not take how you have hurt her seriously. The best guide is to be available, but don’t be pushy.
  2. Deal with your own pain. By definition, every conflict has at least two people contributing to the problem. Chances are you also were hurt in some way as well. Use the time that she needs for solitude to come to terms with your own pain. Your apology will not be sincere if you have not recovered from the harm she caused you.
  3. Forgive yourself before apologizing to her. Everyone makes mistakes, but your apology will only be effective if you forgive yourself. This is because guilt is very distracting, and an apology is not about you but the person you wronged.
  4. Help her feel secure. Choose a quiet environment where you know that she feels comfortable. Let her know how special you think she is. It will help her to open up to you faster. Be physically affectionate (but not too pushy) to show that you care.
  5. Don’t come bearing gifts. Although Taurus women love to indulge in pleasurable and materialistic luxuries, this is not the proper time. She likely will doubt the sincerity of your apology if you appear to be trying to buy her off. Bring gifts another day, when it will appear unrelated and spontaneous.
  6. Avoid controlling the conversation. She will likely listen to what you say, but really she just wants to talk about how she feels and why she’s right. The best thing you can do for her is to let her rant. Allow her to let off steam until she calms down. Don’t try to change the subject until she does.
  7. Avoid drama. Taurus women tend to forgive if you can justify your actions or appeal to their emotions. But they don’t respond well to drama – most of all crying or lying – which they consider as a failure to stand up and take responsibility for your actions.
  8. Do not argue or try to convince her that she is mistaken. You won’t win. If you challenge a Taurus woman in this way, be prepared for a lengthy conflict. She will argue obstinately, determined to make you agree with her. Remember. One of the things that make her angry is being pushed to change her mind. She already has decided that you are guilty. Accept it and move on. 
  9. Don’t try to reverse the situation so that she is at fault. This is not the time to mention what you think she may have done wrong. Though Taurus women have no qualms about pointing out your wrongdoings, they are sensitive to anything that threatens their sense of justice.
  10. Do not seek to reach a compromise. The purpose of an apology is to acknowledge your mistakes, not to divert focus to her transgressions. Just say you’re sorry, she’s right, and move along.
  11. Be sincere. Consider how what you did or didn’t do affected her. Don’t make up excuses for why you did what you did or blame others. She will interpret this as you trying to evade taking responsibility for your own actions. Most importantly, mean it when you apologize. If you’re not genuine, you’re not going to get anywhere with your apology.

Final Considerations

Having a friendship or romantic relationship with a Taurus woman can be a very rewarding experience. You will not find anyone more loyal, affectionate, and caring than her. She is someone who gives more than she expects to receive.

 Yes. She has a stubborn side. This can make her difficult to handle at times. It also can cause her to remain in unhealthy, at time dangerous, situations. She believes that she has invested so much into the friendship or romantic relationship that she can’t let it go.

We have learned that if you manage to make her angry, watch out. Her rage will be strong and she may hold a grudge. If you make her sad, she will disappear for a while so that she can process through her pain.

Finally, we have learned that she will be ready and willing to listen to and accept your apology. Just make sure to follow our 11 steps!
