Aries Woman and Taurus Man Compatibility
This post is based on Linda Goodman’s Book “A NEW APPROACH TO THE HUMAN HEART LINDA GOODMAN’S LOVE SIGNS” for the Love Compatibility of Aries woman with Taurus man.
“Get your things, Peter,” she cried, shaking. “No,” he answered…. ‘7 am not going with you.” “Yes, Peter.” “No.”
A romantic involvement with a Taurus man is sure to be an educational experience for the Aries female. She thinks immovable objects (him) are simply things to kick aside, leap over or melt with the irresistible force of Mars heat (hers). Not this one.
She shoves – he sits. She pushes – he pouts. She demands – he digs in. Then, look out. The next step could be: she weeps – he walks. Away, that is – for keeps. But Bulls and Rams can do other things together. Like, if she smiles – he’ll soften. If she coaxes – he’ll cuddle. If she bear-hugs – he’ll beam. You’ll notice it’s always she who initiates the first move between them… of any kind.
They may quarrel about money (her extravagance – his economy), or lock horns over the Aries need for excitement, and the Taurus need for peace and quiet. But with some effort at adjusting to each other’s different metabolisms and personal mannerisms, this man and woman can find a rare and very cozy contentment together.
Since she demands, and requires (both), an abnormal amount of freedom, it’s a fortunate thing the Bull is not unduly jealous. He’s not jealous, but he is very possessive. The difference between these two qualities can be found in the dictionary – or through living with each other. She’s jealous. He’s possessive. They should carefully check Webster, and take it from there.
Yes, a Taurus man is stubborn, there’s no denying this astrological fact. His sometimes blind, unreasonable bull-headedness can be unpleasantly aroused, if an Aries girl wants him to pick daisies with her when he wants to snooze – if she subjects him to her friends, when he wants to quietly read – (at other times, he’ll be happy to entertain them all with his marvelous humor) – or if she insists on spending more than he earns, faster than he doesn’t earn it. Yet a wellloved Bull will bear up under a great deal of “sound and fury, signifying nothing” but noise and nonsense, with tranquil aplomb. Normally, he’ll take it with an unruffled good nature when she fights with his boss or his relatives, howls with a toothache, loses her engagement ring in the mashed potatoes at a restaurant, and doesn’t realize it until after they’ve left, the place is closed and the garbage truck has already done its ruthless chop-chop thing.
A contented Taurus man will patiently put up with most Aries misguided missiles of enthusiasm unless he’s pressed too hard, and too often. Then, he’s likely to erupt into the infrequent but ever latent and smoldering Taurean anger. Rams who have never been exposed to the Bull’s anger should not press their luck. And that happens to be a most serious astrological warning, in no way intended to be humorous.
If he’s handled gently, with a decent amount of consideration for his own feelings, this man will stick by the girl Ram he loves through the darkest storms, like a steady rock of solid love, covering the miseries of her mistakes with a warm, protective blanket of sheer devotion. It’s rather like coming home, all safe and secure, from a long journey through a frightening nightmare of rejection, where no one really cares or understands. He cares, even if he can’t quite understand her temporary emotional traumas. And he’ll usually back up his caring with a dependable bank account, and a leakless roof over her head (not to mention a well-stocked refrigerator), to the very best of his steady ability, while he builds slowly and surely for an even more secure, and even luxurious, future.
In the average love affair or marital relationship between the Bull and the Aries woman, she’ll provide the ideas and the energy while he provides the stability and security. This applies to both the financial and the sexual aspects of their cooperative venture.
Although Taurus men are as practical about love as they are about everything else, they’re also deeply affectionate, quietly romantic and deeply sentimental. The Aries woman who’s grown into the mistaken impression that her usually undemonstrative Taurus lover or husband doesn’t really love her anymore will never fail to be periodically surprised by receiving an extravagant Valentine, or other card, on some unexpected holiday, which expresses the shy Taurean feelings tenderly and eloquently, in the words of the verse.
Still, there could be some problems concerning the physical sharing of their love, after the first magnetic attraction of Male-Positive and Female-Negative polarity loses its novelty. Sex is, to the Aries woman, a form of release – mental, emotional, physical and spiritual. It’s the visible manifestation of the Mars Faith and Strength combined, in a powerful urge of self-expression. To her, sexual activity justifies itself as a thrilling fantasy, which could, in some miraculous way, known only to her, make every dream she’s ever dreamed come true. Sex is, to the Taurus man, a normal and natural function, for the purpose of achieving two very tangible and sensible results – the satisfaction of sensual and erotic flesh needs – and children. A family.
She’s compelled to release the Mars sexual energy, even if it doesn’t result in much of anything, except frustration – and imaginative romancing is absolutely essential to her. He doesn’t see the sense in releasing any kind of energy unless its purpose is to produce something practical and useful – and the typical Taurean does not regard daydreams as either essential or productive. Consequently, the girl Ram may gradually and eventually become impatient with her Bull’s desire for frankly sensual and somewhat unimaginative lovemaking – and he may (at a relatively slower rate of speed) become honestly puzzled by the trip to the stars she feels must be synonymous with passion, in private, wistfully wishing he could take her there but sensing they might get lost, because he’s uncertain of the route … . and after all, there’s no map to guide him. A harmonious relationship between their mutual Suns, Moons and Ascendents will miracle away these differences in their natures, and allow the two of them to achieve a rich fulfillment through their sexual union, as well as in every other facet of their togetherness.
However, with a tense aspect between their natal Luminaries and/or Ascendents, it may be difficult for the Aries female to keep the Bull in her pasture, unless she makes a constant and conscious effort to please him, an unselfish urge that does not come naturally to the typical Arian. It takes mountains of hurt and resentment to make a Taurus man leave a woman he’s once loved (or permit her to leave his possessive domain), but once he goes, he is gone. Permanently. A little tenderness today can prevent a lot of tears tomorrow.
Despite the many arguments these two are almost destined to have in the area of both mutual and individual finances, she’ll soon learn a touching truth about her Taurus man’s attitude toward money, which is so vastly different from her own (assuming they’re both typical of their Sun Signs, and their birth charts don’t confuse matters with a variety of planetary positions that create the exceptions that prove the astrological rules). In the beginning, she’ll think he’s an outright tightwad, and he’ll think she’s as improvident and careless with cash as they make females (he believes they’re all made, more or less, in a similar extravagant mold). Gradually, however, his great Bull’s heart will be moved, when he slowly comprehends that her carelessness with cash is nearly always motivated by impulsive generosity. He’ll see that, although she spends a good deal of money on herself (Aries represents the first astrological house; therefore, all Rams are exceptionally concerned with their physical appearance), she spends even more through her gestures of giving, much in the sense that a child gives, with a feeling of sheer delight in pleasing others and receiving the reward of their happy smiles. He’ll probably relax his attitude somewhat then, regarding his initial disapproval of her wild and carefree spending. In fact, after their relationship has had time to solidify into a permanent pattern, her spontaneous generosity may even cause him to love her more.
At the same time he’s learning to adapt to her financial looseness, even affectionately, she will be discovering that he’s not such a miser as she first thought him to be. She’ll realize that his caution stems from his uncontrollable need to be sure of tomorrow’s security, his deep-seated fear of being suddenly thrown out into the street and forced to rely upon the charity of others or the government, which would kill his proud spirit of self-sufficiency. And she’ll see that, once her stubborn, but kind-hearted, steadfast and loyal Bull knows their future is reasonably insured (not excessively, as is the case with the typical Crab or Goat), he’s genuinely generous. Barring an afflicted Moon or Ascendent in Earth or Water elements, he’ll be as tickled as she to give gifts to their friends and families, and lend money to those who need it, without pressing them for repayment – as long as his basic nest egg for tomorrow is left untouched, the amount of which, of course, varies with each individual Bull. But the typical Taurus male won’t take huge chances with his security. If his Aries woman tries to convince him that they should move into a better apartment or house, and trust a promise someone made to them regarding future paychecks, commissions or bonuses, to make up the difference in rent or mortgage payments, she’s engaged in a futile endeavor. The Bull won’t move an inch until he’s sure he can handle the extra burden. To Taurus there’s never been a promise since the world began that’s been made of anything but talk and thin air – both materials he’s found to be totally unreliable for the purpose of building anything concrete and lasting. Yet, when push comes to shove (an excellent descriptive phrase to use with Taurus) this man will share half of whatever he has with anyone whose real need he’s been made aware of, most especially his family, friends……….and the woman he loves.
There may be times when the Bull’s stubbornness seems like the coldest kind of cruelty to an Aries girl. For example, he may say something unkind to her in public, when she’s been frisking too much for his taste and acting up in general, and it will cut her to the quick. She’ll try to force him to apologize, openly or at least to admit he didn’t mean it (which he didn’t, and she knows it), while he sullenly refuses to grant her the verbal solace and reassurance she’s seeking (or, rather, demanding). As she continues first to command, then finally to plead with him to retract his statement, he’ll grow even more silent and removed, like a chunk of marble, unseeing, unhearing, unfeeling – apparently.
Then she’ll impulsively run out, angrily weeping, into the night. He’s the coldest, cruelest man she’s ever known, and it’s all over between them. He can’t do that to her. A few blocks down the street (maybe twenty or more, depending on the extent of the adrenalin she was generating when she stormed out of the place where she left him) – she sees a coffee shop, and wanders inside, to sit by herself, crying all over her donuts, and fiercely hating him until their favorite song hits her ears, from the ceiling speakers, reminding her of what she’s lost by walking out on him. So, she pays her check, leaves hastily and ends up standing on a street corner, forlorn and alone, trying to hail a taxi to take her home – sorry, at last – and now really frightened. It’s late, there are no taxis anywhere, and she has to walk home, giving her time to think over a lot of things as she hurries down streets that seem unusually quiet and deserted.
But… who is that there in the shadows, leaning calmly against the building across the way, waiting patiently for her? It’s him. He’s still there. She feels a surge of happiness as she runs across the street into his safe arms. He didn’t go away and leave her after all. It’s all right again. No, he didn’t go away – this time. He’ll probably still be there, patiently waiting for her after the next fiery, emotional, farewell scene too. But, someday…..
If she’s wise, she’ll count her blessings before it’s too late.
