Your opposition on the astrological wheel guarantees a magnetic polarity. A Taurus man and a Scorpio woman often have an irresistible chemical attraction!
The two sun signs have so much to offer each other. Taurus has an inner calm that soothes the churning Plutonian emotions of a Scorpio, while she has a burning intensity and passion that ignites the Bull’s normally placid imagination.
It was opposites attracting…until it wasn’t!
The two of you seemed to have SO much in common, with just enough differences to make it interesting for you. You both deeply enjoy being in the moment and fully experiencing the pleasure it can hold- but, you are, unfortunately, both remarkably demanding in your own ways and this can cause some serious problems!
You are both so quick to forgive….yourselves. Each other, not so much
In addition to being just a bit on the self-indulgent side, you’re both also just a little bit reluctant to deal with the whole “making up” thing. Once bitten, twice shy describes both of you- yet, you go about your own ways expressing that.
There’s nothing at all wrong with wanting good things for yourself, and there’s nothing wrong with wanting the best out of life- another thing you share an appreciation for. Where it gets a bit weird is, you want things to be fully explored, no stone unturned and you want to know it all, no matter how messy or complicated it gets.
Taurus, on the other hand, is just adamantly opposed to such things and he’d rather they be cut and dried. His insistence on this sort of thing may come across as obnoxious- and it may also lead to him dismissing your feelings if he feels they weren’t “expressed properly”. (And make no mistake, “What does that even mean?!” is an entirely appropriate response.)
Both of you are deeply invested in making relationships work but you go about it totally different ways. This can create a lot of confusion and upset between you but that needn’t be the case.
Understanding the Taurus man mind- from a Scorpio woman’s perspective
Scorpio, you would do well to think of him as more a complex puzzle and less an insensitive jerk. I know how hard that can be, but if you write him off in your mind as being thoughtless- then, thoughtless he will likely be until one of you ends it and moves on.
Extremely masculine, Taurus men tend to be a bit more of the traditional male- even when they don’t seem to be, outwardly. I’ve known more than one poet, musician, and artist that for all intents and purposes seemed every ounce the enlightened male- right up until you got him to open up.
Then, you realize, he’s got an inner Ward Cleaver the likes of which will startle you with its stodginess. They are remarkably physical men who also are deeply tapped into the collective unconscious- which, for a man can be particularly difficult, let alone one that has such a deep need for traditional values inside of him!
You may have noticed he can be just a little on the vain side, at times, too- and while he’s not dropping the benjamins on spoiling you: oh, he’ll pay out the nose for a good haircut and odds are good he’s wearing the best cologne.
This makes him appealing from the outset- because, well, he’s foxy, he takes care of himself: but when you two decide to take steps further, it can be very annoying to see this play out. After all, he should be spoiling you! Isn’t that what the blogs typically say of these men?
That is true in a lot of cases, but, for Taurus, particularly one who’s been single a while: he’s the priority, then you are. It takes him a bit to adjust to any change, let alone considering another person’s feelings! But, it can be done. This is not a lost cause at all- but how do you unlock that romantic nature they’re supposedly so famous for?
Keep it simple, Scorpio!
Taurus men tend to be very simple- not simple-minded, now, but they value pragmatism and simplicity to the very core of their being. All too often, women make the mistake of over complicating things- especially Scorpio women- with a Taurus man.
You try delving into this one to figure him out and you’re going to overthink it. If you want him to treat you special- or just right, read on. You need to remember to keep things simple. That’s the start.
A long conversation about this isn’t going to work out very well. Open, candid honesty will but only if you’re going about it the right way: and that right way is one that doesn’t stab him right in the ego. Taurus men have notoriously easy-to-wound egos and you’d do well to remember that as you go.
There is another breed of Taurus man, too- the one who is all about that clean living. He may be very much an environmentalist, he may be active and always on the go: and he will also want you to be, as well. If you’ve managed to snag one of those- get ready to get fit, because he will see that as a perfect way to spend time together.
Now, you probably already know that his passion is an intense, powerful thing- but, it may seem to wax and wane, which is a little bit on the “too little” side for you. He doesn’t like innuendo and he cannot stand anything that looks like a mind-game- so, again, being direct is the only way to go with him and never, ever assume there’s so much more beneath the surface. Mostly. His feelings are another matter from his thoughts.
If you’ve already lost your cool- you probably know, their reactions can make this so much worse. Notorious for not being easily ruffled, you may have been on the receiving end of a Taurus man telling you that you were being over emotional or that perhaps, you just don’t see things the right way.
Using your strengths as a Scorpio woman to snag that Taurus man
You know, much has been said about Scorpio and I’ll try to refrain from such jokes here, but, one thing that works for a Scorpio woman when it comes to seducing a Taurus man: that stare. Your eyes are probably going to be a bigger draw to him than you might imagine- because, in them, he can see that there’s a depth he’d like to explore, and he can almost sense the passion beneath.
I don’t really think I have ever seen a sign that gets more misunderstood than you Scorpio women. Of course, most of you tend to like it that way: not so much being misunderstood as being mysterious and enjoying playing with people just a bit.
This may not be your best bet with a Taurus but it can also be a big, big draw if done correctly. Think about it in fractions- you want to be about 85% consistent and stable and 25% mystery that keeps him on his toes for good measure and that will be a nearly intoxicating blend.
Though people say what they do- the truth is, deep down, you’re looking for that profound connection, the once in a lifetime love that just maybe your soulmate- and your Taurus man could be that for you. Maybe.
One of the assets you possess- and one that might put off your Taurus, too: you are remarkably perceptive and can get to the heart of things pretty easily. In a well-played sense, this enables you to see past his tough exterior, the veneer of not really caring and get to the love that is underneath- and probably, the fears he has about it as well.
On the other hand, if you push or prod him before he’s comfortable opening up- you might just find your calls go unanswered. You will want to just keep your observations to yourself on that front for a little while, while you build the trust between you.
He needs to know that you are a safe person to open up to, in order for him to open up fully on his own- which is exactly what you want from him. This may bug you a bit because you can see the areas where he’s a bit on the hypocritical side with stark clarity: but woe betide you mention it and end up on the receiving end of that patronizing tone he takes!
It’s really best to allow yourself to be open with him in a calm fashion about the things you think and feel: he will typically follow suit, albeit perhaps a little slower than you’d like.
Here is where it gets tricky for a Scorpio woman in trusting her Taurus man
You have to understand one thing about a Taurus man: when he can make your face light up and he can make you just radiate joy, or, well, an orgasm: he’s at his happiest, believe it or not. If he knows that he can take care of your needs, make you laugh, get you thinking, this is what he’s going to do and he will relish every minute of it. Doesn’t sound like the Taurus you’re dealing with? Read on.
At his core, Taurus is a very primal Earth sign. He has this innate desire to provide, particularly for his woman. I think all too often, we have come to this point in our culture where we think that “men providing” is an outdated relic- and for a lot of people, it’s not possible anyway, because most households now need two people working. However, that doesn’t mean that men have lost touch with this and certainly not Taurus!
So, how do you bring this out in him? You have to trust him to do it and he will know if you don’t. He may not say so, he may not relay his observations as much as you do: but he knows. This urge to provide for loved ones goes very deep into his being and if he can make sure you are taken care of on all fronts- that’s what he will want to do. But he has to know you want that and he has to know you’re receptive to it, actually receptive.
All too often we allow fear, insecurity and even pride to stand in the way of the relationships we deserve- and for a Scorpio woman, this one’s a toughie because it can be hard for you to be open and vulnerable in these ways: but that’s exactly what you should do in order to appeal to that side of the Taurus man.
You might wonder what it is he wants in return when he’s being kind to you, or when he’s being romantic- and that’s something he picks up on. It’s important to bear in mind that of course, he wants something in return! Not what you’re thinking, though- I am sure he wouldn’t say no to that, either. No, the Taurus man is looking for that one woman that he can spend the rest of his life with, the companion and best friend that he can trust above all else. Not too bad, right?
The key is, being open and letting him know that woman just might be you. Being receptive and vulnerable yourself will go a very long way in encouraging similar behaviors in him.
Taurus in the bedroom
As I mentioned above, Taurus men tend to be remarkably physical and the sex is usually amazing. However, you have to be careful with this one- because, well, they’re indulgent and if you’re a match for them in bed: don’t assume you’re a match for them otherwise.
Even a Taurus man who has a wife but isn’t satisfied sexually has been known to step out for some strange- but, they won’t leave that stable relationship no matter what they say to justify the cheating. Typically, though, a Taurus man IS a highly loyal one.
You have to understand that what’s been said about the possessive nature of a Taurus is absolutely one thing you can bank on, no matter how it manifests in him. He won’t have a problem with public affection…as long as it shows other people your his. If it’s just a little over the top, he may balk at that, but, he’ll probably throw his arm around you or otherwise indicate “She is mine” which is always kind of nice.
Problem is if you’re looking for a guy who’s going to be sort of mellow about this, if you want someone who needs a bit more openness- he may not be the guy for you. If you are able to accept your role in his life as just the booty call on the side, he may stick around if he’s married, he may not. Either way, he’s unlikely to upset the applecart at home.
Stability is everything for them, even in the bedroom. Playing hard to get will pretty much assure he darts off to easier to get: so your directness is an excellent strength for you in this regard. He CAN be romantic- but, conventionally so.
If he hasn’t gotten around to clarifying your position in his life- you also shouldn’t assume that he sees you as some sort of “on the side” or that he sees you as only a sexual playmate, either- he may just be waiting things out, seeing how it goes and making sure that you are a safe bet for him.
In the bedroom, your best bet is to keep your expectations known and clear- without damaging his ego. They take a great deal of pride in their ability to satisfy their lovers, and depending on how you broach the subject- you might accidentally hurt his feelings when all you wanted to do was have a little sexual exploration! Be sure you open with some praise for his prowess and then, go from there to gently talk about the things you’d like to have in the bedroom.
Here is where things get just a bit tricky because you will need to be highly tolerant of some behaviors that don’t make a whole lot of sense. You are remarkably compassionate, but, if he’s not opening up to you about whatever it is he’s afraid of: it’s hard for you to be all that compassionate.
As a Scorpio, you really dislike anything that sniffs of laziness and he often engages in that, as well. You aren’t one to get stuck in a rut at all- but he is. Matter of fact, many is the Taurus who has remained in a bad relationship just because it was all he knows! This is actually not as bad as it sounds here- all these areas where you vastly differ from your Taurus man can be a HUGE asset once you get into the long-term scenario you’re after.
The most important thing for you to rely on, the thing that will get you through just about anything else on the list is your ability to communicate, Scorpio. You cannot afford to play the mysterious with him on this front- it just will not work. Clarity and calm are needed whenever you express yourself with him and you cannot push him- he’ll push back and bullheaded as he is: it may hurt.
You might have noticed that the two of you have a small handful of important things in common: but when it comes to most things, you are completely the opposite. Still yet, the magnetism here is too much to resist!
You probably enjoy a remarkable amount of chemistry which, sort of creates an intense bond between both of you. Because you’re both a bit on the jealous side, you may find yourselves going back and forth on that one quite a bit- but, for you two, this one will be MUCH easier to talk out.
Go slowly and gently when talking about what creates jealousy within you and allow him to do the same and you’ll find that helps a great deal. This may be a little difficult because of the vast differences in the way the two of you feel things- he’s fairly simple, you are very complex- but, if you put aside your stubbornness and meet him halfway, you’ll find his stubbornness subsides a bit, as well.
Much has been said about the potential for a soulmate connection in this pairing- however, you have to understand that a soul mate is meant to challenge a person: and this relationship, soulmate or no, will do just that! You will find that, between the two of you, when one compromises a bit, the other also does.
You are both much more apt to make changes based on rising to the challenge another one of you presents in their actions than you are being nagged or talked at. That much you certainly have in common!
Both of you have a strong tendency towards hiding emotions: though you hide different feelings for very different reasons. Taurus men tend to hide the depth of their love for another person out of fear of rejection or being hurt, whereas you tend to hide intense feelings of anger or hurt out of not wanting to be perceived as “too intense”.
But I think we both know people think that anyway, so you may as well go for it. For you, conveying the things you feel in a calm fashion when you aren’t in the heat of the moment will almost be cathartic- and, more than that, it will enable him to trust you enough to be vulnerable with you, too.
This can be a remarkably intense yet complicated relationship between the two of you. Though you’re just drawn to him- you may at times also feel like maybe you hate him and he likely feels about the same way: that’s what happens when passions run the gauntlet and it’s pretty normal!
Both of you enable the other to open up about things you might not feel like you can with anyone else- and that’s not something to sneeze at! You’re going to have to, however, allow each other the time and space to work through those more shadowy sides of each other, especially if there’s been hurt in your pasts!
You both may be very hesitant to allow yourselves to be vulnerable and you’re careful not to trust without good reason: which is a powerful point of understanding that can be used to grow closer, as well, when you talk about it together.
