Taurus Best and Worst Relationship Matches
Much of everything that you ever wanted to know about your Taurus lover is constituted by his/her relationship with Venus, Taurus’ planetary ruler. Contrary to the more commonly held perception of the Taurus being extremely reliable, stable, solid and perhaps a bit stuffy, Taurus can be extremely sensual, especially when you chuck him/her into the emotional blender. Once the more romantic aspects of the bull’s sun sign kicks into high gear you will be surprised by the physical intensity of the relationship, and you may, in fact, be overwhelmed with the tactile way in which your lover shows you affection.
We can see this side of Taurus in other aspects of the bull’s personality. Usually people born under this season of the sun cycle have a great desire for simply physical pleasure, and you may have noticed comfortable furniture, nice beverages and food filling their fridges and adorning their living rooms. They are connected closely to the ears, neck and larynx, and as a result enjoy beautiful music, good conversation and the touch of loving hands.
The most important thing to remember if you are dating, making love to, or in a long-term, full-fledged relationship, with a Taurus, your affection is best expressed through the same mode that your lover enjoys other parts of his/her life, with simply expressions of sensual enjoyment. Touch them, instead of saying something sweet! Instead of a book, get them wine, instead of art, give them a massage. Make love to them when they least expect it, and sit them down for their favorite meal. This will seal the deal, and create a loyal, caring, and delicate lover.
There are a few drawbacks to having a Taurus lover in your life, and they begin with the communication difficulty that the bull can have. Though they like talking about philosophy, politics or their own particular interests, if the conversation turns toward more difficult subjects, such as problems in your relationship, or lack thereof, they may be unlikely to engage your concerns. This needs to be worked out with some very focused discussions of what Taurus’ view as unnecessary exchanges. If it is not practical then it is not something that they are interested in. A way to promote more dialogue is to sandwich the difficult stuff with a nice bottle of wine, or a good day on the beach, or any other hedonistic activities.
You may also have noted that bulls in your life can be moody and a bit withdrawn sometimes. This is closely linked to the their stubborn inability to ‘role with the punches.’ This is a very real part of a Taurus’ life. Make sure to encourage a more open-minded way of viewing the world, and you will help your boy/girl get out of the doldrums and into the bright sun of the world.
A word directly to those born under the Taurus sign: be careful not to see the special people in your life as part of your collection of ‘fun’ activities. A problem that can face you is seeing people in an instrumental way that can devalue the unique worth of each person in your life. This can be a more serious problem when it comes to people who you deal with romantically. Most people get tired of being treated like a pretty bubble that must be dusted occasionally, and even though you think you are showing the right amount of interest, you may find yourself alone wondering how it all went wrong. Remember, if you care for someone, their needs must be met even more aggressively than your own, and maybe they will reciprocate, and then everyone wines.
