It's easy to recognize when Taurus season—April 20 to May 20—is upon us without having any preexisting astrological knowledge. That's because Taurus personality traits are strong, unwavering, and strong-willed. You know—bull-headed. So, it's almost certainly obvious when all your fiercely loyal friends' birthdays are crammed into the spring-month window. Expect a slew of repeat parties where you feel obligated to show up. (Leave it to a fixed sign to select the same birthday-brunch spot year after year).

Still, there are ways you can better understand these complex bulls, so below you can find a rundown on telltale Taurus personality traits. If you are a Taurus, then you've probably come to terms with being known for your stubbornness (possibly the most forward-facing attribute of this sign). And if you're friends with one of these bullish types, you can probably recognize their Taurus-aligning characteristics, like allegiance and commitment to you.

These are 7 Taurus personality traits the bull in your life will identify with.

1. You have a reputation for being "stubborn"

Take it as a compliment—it means you're determined and unfailingly persistent, both of which can bode well for you regarding career and life goals.

2. Treating yourself is a lifestyle, not a hobby

You demand a lot from everyone, yourself included. But you know what they say: "Work hard, self care hard."

3. You're not usually emotional, but when you are, it's all melodrama

You usually keep a cool head, but when you snap, it's like an explosion.

4. Your approach to friendship is quality over quantity

Being such a dedicated and loyal friend means that you don't really have the time or energy to maintain relationships with people you don't deeply care about. This means your friend group is small and intimate.

5. Some call it being a control freak—you call it extreme independence

When you do something, you commit yourself to it 110 percent, which means you're not the most flexible person in the world. But, hey, there's a price to pay for your intense dedication.

6. Being determined means you can come across as argumentative

You're not trying to be contrarian, but you expect certain things to be done in certain ways.

7. You’re extremely charming and personable when you feel like it

Because of your persistent nature, you can set your mind to accomplish whatever you want. That means you can be super friendly and social—when you choose to be.

Forget the sun, forget the planets, because your moon sign is actually the key to figuring our your astrological identity. And if you need a quick astrology reading, great news: there's an app for that.
