The other bull-like animal of the zodiac is Aries--the battering ram! I find Aries to be infinitely more frustrating and stubborn than Taurus. When Aries disagrees with you,
- they let you know, immediately, and very loudly
- they keep on reminding you that you are wrong, until you beg for forgiveness
- they always have to have the last word
- did I tell you they keep reminding you how wrong you are?
- they will keep trying to convert you, even after you've admitted your error
It's almost like being beaten repeatedly over the head with a virtual 2x4. Fortunately, since Aries is a fire sign, you can distract them and they eventually forget the issue. Taurus, however, is an earth sign, and--earth signs never forget. Anything. So, where Aries is aggressively obstinate, Taurus is, basically, comfortably immovable. It doesn't take much to set off a battering ram, but the bull won't charge unless you provoke it. And it may even decide that charging is too much trouble after all.
Given the choice, I'll take the Taurus any day!
