Best Lover: Scorpio
Most Suitable Life Partners: Scorpio, Leo, and Aquarius
Best Fit for Children: Virgo
Taurus can be very kind, gentle and loving — but if there’s one thing this earthy person has trouble dealing with, it’s the concept of sharing. Don’t think less of your Taurus for being somewhat protective. It’s the nature of the bull to acquire goods and to preserve what has been achieved. Nothing thrills Taurus more than the joy of the well-hunted-down and wisely purchased luxury item, except possibly an even nicer present — preferably from you. Taurus will put laser-like focus on the process of purchasing (or hinting for) items that are practical, useful, and yes…somewhat extravagant.
Venus, the ruling planet of Taurus and the goddess of love and beauty, makes Taurus especially voracious when it comes to sexual appetites, so turning Taurus on is as easy as getting close enough to deliver a friendly “come hither” look. Once this volcanic love machine gets started, you’ll be treated to a continuous flow of orgasmic explosions you’ll never forget! Erogenous areas include the neck and ears. The person who originated the quip, “Blow in my ear and I’ll follow you anywhere” must have been born under this deliciously sexy sign!
Your Taurus With Chocolate
There is one delectable comestible that brings Taurus’ lofty tastes right back down to earth. Even in the middle of a conversation about buying “the best” and “having it all,” chocolate is Taurus’ great equalizer. From the ordinary brand-name Kisses to the most succulent French or Belgian varietal truffle, Taurus has trouble not loving anything flavored with or touched by the fruit of the cocoa bean.
Is a True-Blue Friend
Offering chocolate is a good way to befriend a person born under the sign of Taurus, but to keep this interesting individual around, you must earn trust and respect. This can be done only over time, because Taurus doesn’t act on “gut instinct.” To speed up this process, you will have to demonstrate that you have no intention of preying on the fruits of Taurus’ labor. As a friend, Taurus will always be there for you, but you must be willing to reciprocate. You may want to vent your anger or commiserate over a bad day, but he’ll insist you also give your full attention to a plethora of fears, concerns, and worries that seem to be totally antithetical to the placid, steady person you know. Bring him back to earth with simple pleasures such as spa dates and nighttime hot-tub sessions. Any time you can bring Taurus back in touch with the senses, you’ll both be raving about the great time you’re having.
Taurus Likes to Do It…Again and Again
Taurus’ attributes, from sensuality and passion to affection and peace-keeping, come from a strong affiliation with Venus, the planet goddess of love. Taurus brings out Venus’ earthy, lusty side, and once he learns what is satisfying to him, he’ll stick with the comfortable, familiar, and predictable. This can sometimes be a problem with Taurus, who habitually will go to the same places, eat the same foods, and have sex in the same position, time after time. Once he finds something that is pleasing, the tendency is to repeat it, over and over, long after most other people (including you) become quite tired of it! If you dangle the prospect of pleasure under his nose, though, you can entice the bull to experiment, if only one new food, thing, or method of seduction at a time.
Type of Lover:
Taurus Sticks to the Job Until It’s Done — Even in Bed
Taurus people aren’t overly competitive by most measures, but they will work hard to ensure that they please you. Their sense of pride pushes Taurus to work at being more attractive, faster to arouse you, more perceptive, and sexually potent than anyone else you might have been with before. Rarely will your Taurus lover lose interest in you; in fact, even if your “mood” could go either way, Taurus won’t be pushed away until you are truly satisfied. Of course, if you manage to get your Taurus off and running to the races in the meantime, there won’t be any complaining.
In Bed: Taurus Is
All About the Pleasure of It All
Taurus’ fixation on the pleasures of the flesh really pays off when it comes to sex. While this comparatively quiet and unassuming person might not seem like it, in bed, Taurus is an orgasmic pleasure machine! Remember, the neck and ears are Taurus’ hot spots, so start your seduction there. The response you get can come on like a freight train, so do hang on for a very powerful ride. Taurus is ardent and determined about reaching orgasm, and you’re a huge part of the process. The more you get turned on, the harder and more heartily Taurus will devour you! Taurus is capable of connecting with you on a soul level during sex and in the relationship, but like all things with the trust-but-verify bull, this will take time.
Taurus Takes a While to Come Around
You’ll also have to wait for Taurus to decide it’s time to declare yourselves a couple. Once this is done, though, you won’t be sorry. Taurus’ loyalty and dedication is always a good choice for those who need someone reliable and solid. A Taurus may quiver under emotional storms when he feels them, but will always be the voice of calm, detached sanity when you go through yours. Taurus will always look for practical solutions that keep the peace and try to quell your fears, out of love, of course — but not without other motivations. After all, if you’re not settled and serene, who will keep Taurus from teetering off the deep end?
The Heart: Hard on
the Outside, Soft on the Inside
Your Taurus partner might seem to be strong and emotionally resilient, but in truth, he’s a big old softie. If you want to keep Taurus around, you’ll have to remember to heap on the compliments and praise. Above all he’ll want to know that he pleases you like no one else…and will be devastated upon finding out this isn’t the case. If you think breaking up with a less possessive and attentive partner is “hard to do,” you’ll really have a hard time when you make an attempt to leave a relationship with a Taurus by saying “no hard feelings.”
Taurus Never Lets Go
If you ever decide to call it quits, you will hear from your erstwhile and bull-headed companion again and again throughout this lifetime, whether or not you wish to. (Social networking via the Internet has only made this more certain than it was in the days of maudlin poets, wistful troubadours, and passionate love letters delivered by carrier pigeon.) Taurus doesn’t necessarily want to pick up where you left off. It’s more like a complete inability to ever totally let go.
This can be an area of difficulty while you’re in a relationship with Taurus, too, because exes will always be brought up and ancient scenarios rehashed. The best thing you can do is let it fly, because you won’t change it anyway! By now, it must be obvious that Taurus likes things the way they are, and fully expects you to be strong and confident enough to realize you are the one and only object of desire and will always be. Once you can come to terms with that, you will have earned your way into an extremely enjoyable, if somewhat repetitive, relationship filled with effusive love, delicious passion, and lasting respect.
Fit: Taurus Likes to Build Muscle and Stamina
Taurus is a rather hearty type, usually with a solid build. As long as an urge to overindulge isn’t obeyed more often than it is restrained, he can remain lean and muscular. Taurus excels at weight-bearing exercise and sports that require strength. He’ll prefer activities that allow him to stay close to the earth, yet feel as though he has mastered it. Weight lifting and bicycling are great ways for Taurus to achieve this. The lack of variety doesn’t bother him a bit, and he enjoys measuring his progress by steadily improving repetitions, distances, and times. Let your Taurus spend a bit of time developing cardiovascular stamina so you’ll get more out of this lover in bed too!
