Taurus Love and Romance Overview
As a native of Taurus, you understand perfectly well what I’m talking about when I reveal your fidelity and good, old-fashioned commitment to the institution of love, marriage and family life.
You value love, friendship and the security that goes with having stability in your life with someone that you know and trust on all levels. In fact, it can be devastating for you to feel that your honour or trust as been broken and this is why, for some Taureans anyhow, it takes a little bit longer for them to make that commitment, feeling it necessary to investigate and understand another person clearly and deeply before giving their hearts over to them.
Once you choose to embark on the path of love with someone, they may need to prepare themselves for your dogged and relentless fixity of purpose and inflexibility at times on your opinions. Hopefully, you’ll meet someone who is not perhaps as strong-willed as yourself as a clash of egos is likely if your partner is as or more opinionated than yourself.
You have a clear idea of how you like things to be done and where you want your life to take you. Once you’ve made your mind up, it’s very difficult for your partner to change it. Compromise will be one of your key words and lessons in life on your journey of love. If you can yield, not in everything, but even at times in small matters, this will go a long way towards knocking the edge off otherwise tense relationships.
Sensuality and sexuality are of prime importance to the Taurean – not simply for the sake of pleasure but for the deep and abiding bonding that occurs through physical intimacy. Although Venus is the primary ruler of Taurus, Mars ruling the sign of Scorpio is the marital and personal relationship planet for those of you born under this star sign.
This combined influence of Venus and Mars makes you highly sexed, erotic and keenly interested in exploring the deeper issues of sexuality in relationship. In the less evolved type of Taurus, however, this can dominate the relationship and create power struggles between lovers. Try to keep the physical and pleasurable elements of your relationship in perspective.
Because security, material and creature comforts are of significance to you, you’d need a partner who can fulfil these deeper, instinctive Taurean needs. It’s not that you measure the value of another person by how much they earn or by what they have, but you are a pragmatist, a person who realises the ways of the world and that it can be difficult to exist in our modern day society without financial independence which affords you the freedom and peace of mind that you aspire to.
On the other hand, there is a simple and uncomplicated part of the Taurean nature which means the day to day simplicity of life also appeals to you. Sitting on a bench under an open, clear, blue sky with the sound of birds and the wind rustling through the trees is enough to make you feel alive and emotionally and romantically satisfied with your partner if you can share these things in the same measure with them and feel that they appreciate nature and the simple things in life as well.
Your partner needn’t lavish expensive gifts on you for you to feel content. A loving look, a hug or simply an SMS text or email letting you know that they’re thinking of you is more than enough to make your day.
The end result of a compatible relationship for Taurus should always include the potential for having children and taking the relationship to that next, most important stage of family life. Your partner must share these values with you if you are to feel truly fulfilled in a relationship. Your nurturing, compassionate and loving ways are seen perfectly in your ability to create a wonderfully harmonious domestic environment in which children and your partner take pride of place.
Creating a safe haven for your family is an instinctive talent that Taureans possess – both men and women of this sign. When friends or relatives visit they feel comfortable in an atmosphere of love and nourishment, which is what you endeavor to create as the crowning glory of any relationship you value.
You are one of the most loyal and dedicated of the zodiac signs and stability is highly prized by youwhen it comes to relationships. In reading this, Taurus, you’ll understand what I mean when I say that for you, the sensual and sexual side of your life takes a back seat to stability, both financially and emotionally. Unless you feel comfortable and at ease with the person you are with, then you find it hard to let go, open up and give your heart completely to someone.
You have a tendency to get stuck in certain patterns of life and relationships are no exception. This could also relate to a situation where you’ve broken up with someone and once that happens it’s not easy for you to let go of the romance that you may have given your all to. Allowing time to heal you could be a long and drawn out process until you’re ready to attempt love again, if at all. You do, however, need a partner, so you must always remain open to the possibilities that life can bring you.
In love, you are also possessive, just as you are with some of your material belongings. And if you choose someone that you want to spend your life with, they must be 100% committed to the cause. You mustn’t, however, allow jealousy to take hold of you, especially if these feelings and negative attitudes are baseless. You must under all circumstances extend trust and a sense of independence to the one you love. By doing so you’ll find that your partner will reciprocate and be less prone to wandering. Trying to smother your lover would be disastrous to the interests of your relationships.
You’d prefer to fall in love with someone who is financially stable. This doesn’t mean that he needs to be a multimillionaire either. To you it’s enough if the person has a regular, steady income and has a good pattern of saving and responsible and economic views. That’s enough.
Although you are honest, sometimes you are quite simple and straightforward in the way you do this. I might add that some people would even find you a little too honest. Good communication may sometimes require you explaining and going into a bit more depth your reasoning behind what you’ve said. Try to develop this component of your relationship as there may be occasions where you’re incapable of saying too much and could move into shutdown mode, again, to the detriment of what could otherwise be a great relationship.
With adaptability comes for compromise, which is also absolutely necessary for relationships to thrive. You should try your hardest to remain open to doing things a little differently, to being a little more spontaneous for your partner and enjoying life without worrying about money too much as well. Being frugal and security–conscious is important, but not at the expense of the development of your relationship with someone who may want excitement and spontaneity in the relationship.
Once the sensual elements of your nature come to the surface, you tend to become fixated on the pleasurable aspects of that feeling. Try not to allow yourself to get carried away by overindulging these sensate patterns in your personality. Once again, the secret, as with anything and in particular in your relationships is moderation.
No fly by nighters….
When you do finally meet someone you are attracted to, you need quite a bit of warm up time to get to know them, to see whether they’re serious and to see whether or not you can make a life with them. As I’ve said, for you, love is for keeps and particularly if you’re in your 30s or older. You’re not interested in the fly by night romances or one night stands.
