Relationships are not for the weak-hearted; they take dedication, patience, and above all, understanding of your partner. Astrology can help people to understand each other, which leads to acceptance of our partners. When we can accept our partners, we allow them to become their best selves. When we try to change our spouse, we lose interest anyway, so understanding your partner remains one of the keys to a successful relationship and marriage.
This post will look at the Taurus individual particularly in a committed relationship. These tips are not really for casual dating, although the first tip could be applied to a casual interaction with a Taurus. However, you will make greater use all of these tips if you are in a committed relationship or married to a Taurus.
Note that not every Taurus is the same, but they will share similar tendencies.
1. Expect Them to Be Traditional (and Stubborn)
Taurus individuals tend to date long-term. At the very least, they always want a partner or company with whom to enjoy good times. Expect marriage to be on the table if you have been dating for a while and things are going well. Domestically, they want to uphold traditional male/female roles. Family values and culture are also a big part of their decisions in relationships, so be aware if they are religious or have a culture where family is involved in the courting process.
You will find it difficult to change Taurus’ mind about these things. Traditions are solid because they have produced desirable results for generations. A Taurus will rely on what is shown to work. To change their mind about something, you will have to present overwhelming evidence that overturns their current perspective. Even then, you still have to compromise on their terms, as Taurus individuals tend to stick to what is pleasing and relaxing for them. Taurus lives by the motto “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” They don’t like to be surprised or coerced with opposing ideas, so don’t spring up the conversation randomly on a calm day.
2. Let Them Be (A Bit) Lazy
This is a big one. Taurus is a sign that has a tendency towards laziness and enjoying downtime. They can spend a lot of time in front of the television, playing games, eating, and drinking. But more often than not, they do so after a day of hard work. Taurus natives are likely to work hard for their money so they can spend it on the hobbies they love. So let them be a bit lazy, especially if your Taurus partner is busting their ass for the family.
If you just want to be a part of their downtime, you need to contribute something worthwhile; otherwise you are making things worse. One way to squeeze your shoe through the door is cooking. Most Taurus people love to eat delicious and fresh foods, so if you can cook well you will undoubtedly be a source of comfort for your partner. Other routes are playing their favorite music; buying their favorite fragrance; finding and buying art in their favorite color; slow dancing; giving massages; finding a relaxing activity you can enjoy together like painting or poetry.
Just make sure you are not fattening them up, nor that you don’t get yourself into a routine you do not plan on continuing long term yourself. Remember that Taurus loves its familiarity and habits; if you stop after a while they will notice and start to feel neglected.
3. Your Partner Has Routines
Speaking of habits, you have probably noticed before reading this article that you partner has some deep-set habits that they have had for years. Taurus is a stoic sign (being both of earth element and of fixed modality); Taurus individuals tend to stick to what has always worked – not out of laziness but because it’s already proven to work, so why try something different. You could find that unless your Taurus partner is curious about something already, it takes a great amount of effort to convince them to try something new.
Other signs could see this as rigidity, stubbornness, or obstinance. But for Taurus natives, their habits are vital to their sense of security and emotional stability. They need to have everything organized and structured so they can make movements in confidence. Therefore, their routines are typically vital to their financial success in some way, or they have cultural or familial roots that hold immense value to them.
Since this article is about accepting your Taurus lover, just accept who your partner is, habits and all. You chose them after all. If their habits are concerning to you, perhaps a marriage or long term relationship is not the right move for your relationship. However, if their habits are in line with your own, or you think they are negligible, you can work around them.
Worse, however, are those routines your Taurus partner has that are a detriment to the success or financial gain of your home. Perhaps they are too lazy and are no longer watching their weight. Your job as their partner is to get them motivated again. As with tip 1 above, show them the effects of their current habits on the family and how they could be doing more to help out. A healthy Taurus will understand and make slow, steady changes. A negative Taurus will rebel and blame others or make excuses for their own mistakes.
4. Sensual Sex Awaits
Taurus people are sensual and love to explore their spouse’s body. People with their natal Venus in Taurus especially are fond of very slow, sensual, passionate sex. Outside the bedroom, they may be touchy-feely and hands-on. Taurus natives receive great satisfaction when they can feel their partner enjoying the act.
Though Taurus likes their intimate moments to last a while, they prefer the same methods each time. If their natal Uranus aspects their natal Venus or their natal Sun, or if they have Mars in a water sign or Uranus or Neptune in the fifth house, they may desire some creativity and exploration in their sex life. But for the most part, they like the same positions, the same foreplay, the same colors, the same everything when it comes to bedroom fun.
If you want to introduce something new into the bedroom, try to implement it slowly. That way your Taurus partner slowly gets accustomed to it, before it solidifies as another part of the midnight boogie.
5. They Like Their Toys and Money
Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac and it symbolizes our attachments in the material realm – possessions, money, family values, personal values, and resources. Naturally, you can expect your Taurus partner to have a plethora of extraneous possessions that they do not need. These natives identify strongly with what they own. Put simply, they express themselves through their belongings.
Such is the reason Taurus natives are known to be hardworking. They know that in order to enjoy material goods, they need money. And these natives will accrue all the money they can to buy the food, cars, gizmos and gadgets they want. Ruled by Venus, Taurus is also associated with comfort, luxury, and beauty (albeit on a more crude scale compared to Libra). Because Taurus natives are such pleasure-seekers, they may find it hard to control their spending on luxury goods like fancy decorum, dinners at fancy restaurants, alcohol and recreational drugs, overpriced but comfortable clothing, etc.
As Taurus’ partner, you can expect to see them spending money on these goods from time to time. They may even ask advice on a future purchase they want to make. That’s when it’s up to you to be honest about whether or not your home needs that item. It may not be your job to police their wallets/purses, but when their spending habits get out of hand, you are the voice of reason to protect your home.
Equally so, some Taurus individuals find it difficult to part with their money and possessions. They go for the cheapest option available for no apparent reason, other than they enjoy looking at a fat bank account. They also become hoarders who refuse to let go of old items that are useless or broken, promising to repair it ‘someday’. In these cases, Taurus natives are attached to the sentimental value of their belongings. All you really can do for these people is get them the help they need to shake them out of such a poor mismanagement of their Taurean talents.
