Taurus Man and Scorpio Woman Compatibility
He was a brave man; but for a moment he had to stop there
and wipe his brow, which was dripping like a candle. Then
silently he let himself go into the unknown.
A Taurus man who feels himself sinking into the mysterious underworld of a Scorpio female’s magnetic attraction, is either headed for what may be the most traumatic experience of his life – or the most uplifting. The outcome will definitely not be neutral.
It might be the former, if there’s a negative aspect between the Sun and Moon in their respective horoscopes. But if these two Luminaries are in a harmonious relationship*, it could very well be the latter. Assuming everything is cool with their planets, it’s all right for him to sink in, but he might want to tuck a copy of the Bible under his arm, as he falls into the immeasurable depth of her love. It’s really a good idea to study the Holy Works before becoming involved with this woman on an intimate basis. No matter what they say or do, Scorpios can always find a passage in the Scriptures to justify themselves. And they’ll quote it, to make sure you know their motives are blameless. Not only are they experts on both the Old and New Testaments, but they also have the psychic ability to read between the lines – and what Scorpio finds between the lines is quite a testament in itself. * From Venus Trines at Midnight fey Linda Goodman.
Not every Scorpio girl has the Bible committed to memory, of course, but it won’t hurt to take heed of the possibility. If she doesn’t quote the Scriptures when she’s loving him, or stinging him, she may have memorized large chunks of the Tibetan Book of the Dead. At the very least, she may have dropped into a couple of Hare Krishna meetings, or had an Egyptian scarab tattooed somewhere on her body, visible only to the “naked” eye. No? Then check her dressing table (if you can find the key to unlock it) and see if she has a pack of tarot cards, or a well-thumbed copy of the I Ching tucked in among her love potions, exotic perfumes and aphrodisiacs.
I don’t mean to imply that this woman’s nature is too hot for a Taurean man to handle, or her psyche too coolly mysterious for him to penetrate. After all, that silent film star Rudolph Valentino, the sheik to end all sheiks was a Taurus. So the Bull is quite capable of sneaking into a Scorpio girl’s tent, under the stars, with his nostrils dilating romantically. Since she’s chemically attracted to the opposite sex of her opposite Sun Sign (Taurus) she may even run out of the tent barefoot to meet him. If she does, she’ll resemble Queen Nefertiti herself, in the moonlight. That’s what makes it all so special. In the quiet moments of their aloneness together, a Scorpio woman can become to her Taurus man the image of every love goddess down through the ages. In the daytime, she slips on her Scorpion mask and becomes Susan, the shy secretary – Millie, the modest maiden – or Laurie, little-girl-lost.
Despite her apparent tranquility and surface sweetness, this is not a female who is easy to live with. She’s fascinating, feminine, intelligent, loyal and passionate. But she is not an innocent, wide-eyed maiden who is willing to become a love object. Scorpio lives in the emotions, but sometimes they’re bottled up inside for years. That’s why she seems so docile, then suddenly, with no warning, she erupts into boiling anger – or disappears into frozen silence, which is even harder to cope with and certainly more difficult to understand.
For a time, she’ll go along with what her man says, unless he becomes too demanding. Then she’ll show her hidden strength. Tact and compromise are not her strong points. For that matter, they’re not his either. Neither Taurus nor Scorpio has much idea of what it’s like to see the other person’s point of view. No, that’s not quite right. Taurus has trouble seeing another point of view. Scorpio sees it quite clearly, with her uncanny perception. But she still prefers her own wishes to what her ouija board may tell her someone else’s are. They’ll have to make some adjustments here, or spend their lives together with their backs turned, arms crossed, and mouths sealed in stubborn silence. Both of them were born under a Fixed Sign. But both of them were also born under a feminine sign, so they can be equally gentle and sympathetic, when they choose to use these “negative” vibrations, which are the “feminine” compensations for the “negative” qualities of their Sun Signs.
He’s ruled by Venus, the planet of peace and love. She’s ruled by Pluto, the planet of explosive passion and mystery. Their sexual compatibility, therefore, is usually full of strange surprises and sensual ecstasies. She associates sex with the mystery of her own existence, and respects it as a sacred act of love. She also has a devouring curiosity about its secret implications, which can only be satisfied by ever deeper intimacy with the man she loves, although there will always be an aura of purity about her desires. Sex is never cheap to a Scorpio woman, and she’ll insist on being loved for her whole self, not just for her physical appeal. So will he.
The Taurus man may never totally comprehend their lovemaking in as much depth as she does, but that certainly won’t prevent his enjoyment of it. To the Bull, as to the Scorpion, sexual expression is an act of worship, a constant renewal of spiritual strength, through the giving and receiving of passion between them. However, sex alone is never enough for a lasting union, even when it’s as fulfilling as it normally is with Taurus and Scorpio in their 7-7 Sun Sign Pattern relationship. Other facets of their love will need constant attention. It’s never easy for these two to reconcile after a serious quarrel. Their mutual Fixed vibration keeps them apart. Scorpio says, “I will forgive. But I cannot overlook.” Taurus varies this only slightly, and says, “I will forgive. But I can never forget.” They’re both lying to themselves. What they really mean is, “I can’t forgive.” Because, true forgiveness does overlook, and true forgiveness does forget. The refusal to truly forgive is a dark and evil thing. The seeds thus planted in the heart will grow into cold and lonely isolation, premature aging, chronic disease and emotional neurosis, as surely as an acorn will grow into a giant oak tree.
His comic sense may be another cause for tension between them. The Bull needs an occasional practical joke and a constant touch of humor to make his life, which is serious enough, bright and bearable. She may laugh at his comic remarks, but her eyes won’t be smiling, and he’ll soon learn she can’t stand to be teased, because she’s never been able to really laugh at herself. His rich humor is what makes him such a warm human being. Instead of being annoyed by it, if she will let some of his laughter linger in her heart, she might find it’s the extra dimension she needs to color her own emotions a few shades lighter.
The love vibration between Taurus and Scorpio is perfectly symbolized by the strange pilgrimage of Taurean silent screen idol Rudolph Valentino’s much discussed “Mystery Woman,” who, despite whispered rumors, has never been provably identified to this day. Whatever her name may have been, her Sun or Moon Sign was surely Scorpio (which might be a clue to her identity). Yes, she could only have been a deeply bereaved Scorpio woman, conceiving Life, Love, sex and death to be inseparable, as she made her lonely visits to her Taurus lover’s grave, dressed completely in black, her face covered by a veil to offer the memory flowers of her intense passion, grief and loyalty each year, with unwavering faithfulness, on the anniversary of his death.
That’s the way it is with Taurus and Scorpio. No light flirtation, or casual affair. It will be frigid disinterest, total disaster – or a devotion which will last a lifetime, and beyond that, past forever. All – or nothing at all. The Bible will come in handy, either way.
