Taurus Woman and Pisces Man Compatibility
To Michael the loneliness was dreadful. “If only something would make a sound!” he cried. As if in answer to his request, the air was rent by the most tremendous crash he had ever heard the roar of it echoed through the mountains….
Both the silence and the roar of the Bull are an experience known, sooner or later, to every “Michael” who has the Sun, Moon or Ascendent in Pisces, in an association with Taurus. But especially to the Sun Sign male Fish.
When the Taurean girl plays romantic marbles, she shoots to win, and to keep all the aggies. But when she forgets her common sense, she’ll find herself playing “Blind Man’s Bluff,” and that’s a game she could lose, unless she cheats a little, and peeks out from under the hanky tied over her eyes. She might as well, if she’s playing with a Fish. He’ll certainly cheat a little, by peeking out beneath his blindfold, to see where the relationship might be leading him.
If it looks like it’s leading him into the hook of a permanent attachment, he could be a poor loser, and scoot away before he gets caught. But that’s only his protective Neptune reflex action, and he’ll be back. His instinct to return may be guiding him well, because there’s lots of hope for lasting happiness inherent in a love affair between this man and woman.
The Bull and the Fish both like peace and quiet. They both believe in letting sleeping dogs lie. Why ask for trouble? There’s enough of that falling in your lap every day, unsolicited, without chasing it, is her feeling. The Pisces man agrees wholeheartedly. Whistle for trouble and it will zoom right in on you, is the way he sees it. So, don’t whistle where Lady Bad Luck can hear you, or she’ll be sure to pop open the lid of Pandora’s Box, and you’ll have no one to blame but yourself. Well, that’s not quite right. Piscean misfortunes are rarely their own fault. The Fish just naturally gets tangled in other people’s torments, because he’s a such a good listener.
Another thing these two Sun Signs often have in common is that, after all the care they take to avoid sticky seaweed (in the case of Pisces) or barbed wire and brambles (in the case of the Bull) they both stand a good chance of falling into the grip of the gloomies anyway, thanks to their mutual inclination to brood, and their tendency toward pessimism. But the Taurus girl is often more patient, and more certain of the final outcome, than the inwardly restless Pisces man. She doesn’t mind setting a bear trap for something or someone she wants, then waiting without a murmur of discontent, as long as necessary, for the jaws to snap shut. In fact, she may even enjoy waiting for people when they’re late,because it gives her a chance to practice her calm in emergencies.
It’s not a bad habit for her to possess, if she plans on becoming seriously involved with a Fish, because most Pisces men have never been on time in their lives. Unless they have a Virgo or other more stable Moon Sign or Ascendent. There are some Pisces men who are late for work, for the movies, for dental appointments, for New Year’s Eve (mostly because they start celebrating it in November) and for their own weddings (sometimes even missing them altogether).
The Pisces man may wonder what his true image is to the Taurus girl. He won’t really care, but he may wonder. A Fish usually doesn’t work up a lot of anxiety symptoms when he’s in love, at least, not on the surface. He may fret mildly about the rent money, what life really means, what the future holds and such, but to Pisces, romance is a natural state of being. This bright, gentle, poetic man, if he’s a typical Fish, is very much at home in romantic waters, where he probably learned to swim and dive at a shockingly early age.
The Taurus girl was still swooning over Deanna Durbin films, or cracking up over Howdy Doody (depending on her age group) while he was planning his first seduction (or being seduced himself, which is more likely). Love, or the fulfillment of it, comes late to the average Taurean female, which is perhaps why she appreciates it and values it more than women born under other Sun Signs. It’s the waiting that makes things seem special and exciting, whether it’s Christmas, Groundhog’s Day or your first kiss.
Whatever his image may be to her, I hope she tries to halfway understand him. I say halfway, because she’ll be lucky if he doesn’t baffle her completely in the beginning. He’s so absolutely different from every other man she’s ever known that she can’t help being secretly excited by his mysterious elusive quality, even though she normally doesn’t trust a complicated or changeable personality. It’s because of the magnetic 3-11 vibration between them, a Sun Sign Pattern implying a karmic tie, which is responsible for the strong feeling of compulsion in the relationship. A Taurus woman may feel a strong attraction toward certain Scorpio men too, but it will be mostly physical. With a Pisces man, it often goes deeper than that, and it’s not so easily explained. Besides, he so obviously needs someone to cook for him, believe in him, comfort him and love him, all talents in which she excels.
She may occasionally give in to moods of self-pity and dark forebodings. But when her perspective returns, she’ll submit to the gentle influence of Venus again, and slip back into her old, comfortable ways. When she’s herself, a Taurus woman is firmly convinced that anything can be cured with a tub full of warm water, a cup of hot soup, some cool reason and a few jokes. And that includes everything from trivial upsets to major tragedy. The Pisces man’s complicated depressions may need somewhat more extensive and intricate, less prosaic therapy, but he’ll enjoy her treatments. She has an undeniably calm and relaxing influence upon his spirit when he’s troubled.
Sexually, these two relate well to each other. His Neptunian approach to sex can be described in two words: sensuous and romantic. So can hers. Both of them are determined to feel every possible shade and tone of sensual experience it’s possible to know while confined in the flesh, so there will probably be an excellent rapport between them physically. The Pisces man lives almost entirely in and through his psychic nervous system. In his sexual behavior, as in all his activities, he yearns to escape into an ever-higher heaven “anywhere, anywhere out of the world!”
The Taurus girl instinctively “feels” through her senses. She has a serene charisma, a soothing aura, an exquisitely tender touch, and an instinctive desire to blanket the man she loves with warm affection – to tickle him with soft feathers of humor. Combine that with her throaty midnight whispers, and her soft Venus curves, and you can see why they usually vibrate to the same emotional rhythm. Her feminine tendency to gently submit to, and not attempt to dominate her man, is enormously satisfying to the Piscean male, who may have been through some romantic nightmares with more aggressive females. Taurus and Pisces know how to clearly communicate their mutual desires to each other, as well as how to fulfill them, so their physical union can be a beautiful experience of both earthy passion and unearthly ecstasy.
However, their total happiness together depends on which kind of Fish he is, the kind who sinks (by choice) or the kind who swims rapidly upstream. If he’s the sunken kind, lurking among the conch shells at the bottom of the ocean, hoping to find the lost continent of Atlantis down there – or maybe just meditating an abstract scientific theory in the cool, green quiet – he may be immune to all the mermaids, however alluring. That is, unless he finds one with two strong feet planted on firm ground, who’s willing to support him both emotionally and financially until he reaches his dream.
A Taurus girl may be willing to fill that double order for a while. But after a time, the Bull’s slow anger will be aroused. If he leans on her patience too long with what she regards as a lack of good sense and a disregard for security, she’ll explode into one of her rare, but violent rages, and when the thunder dies away, the Fish will have quietly disappeared. But she won’t notice, because once she makes up her mind, this girl doesn’t look back. She read about someone who did that, who was turned into a pillar of salt for her weakness.
Even if he’s an active, swimming Fish, with stronger fins and tougher scales, she may still not comprehend how it is with him, what he goes through in coping with everyone’s tears and troubles, and touches for cash. A Fish can be wonderfully clever and creative, in clear water. But if she constantly muddies it with her earthy stubbornness, and others keep polluting it with impositions on his time and sympathy, he may turn to the solace of a few rainbows on the rocks at the corner bar. Then she’ll start to frown or pout. And that’s the beginning of the end.
The three-part formula for breaking a Taurus girl’s heart is: false promises, deception and idle drifting. The triple formula for healing it is: honesty, fidelity and dependability. If he remembers that, it could be the beginning of the end of his loneliness.
If she accepts his need for periods of isolated contemplation to relax his jangled nerves, he’ll always return to her serenity, for a few jokes, a warm bath, a cup of hot soup – and those throaty midnight whispers. And that could be the beginning of a love as special, and as worth waiting for, as Groundhog’s Day or Christmas morning. Beneath the passion they feel is the warm foundation of the 3-11 vibration of true friendship which never fails to deepen love, when it has passed the test of Time.
