Every sign of the zodiac is “ruled” by one of the planets in our solar system, and the ruler of Taurus is Venus. The second planet from the Sun is archetypally related to the goddess of love, beauty and art. Venus is a sensual, erotic planet. In mythology, the Greek Aphrodite was a beauty who frequently cheated on her husband, Hephaestus.
So, Venus has needs, and her zodiac placement indicates the style in which she fulfills them. Taurus happens to be an Earth sign. Of all the four elements (Earth, Fire, Air, Water), Earth is most concerned about the physical body, what can be experienced with the five senses. Taurus doesn’t put as much stock into intuitions, inspirations and thoughts as what’s here and now. This sign lives and breathes sensation. The texture of someone’s skin, the smell behind a lover’s ear.
The added benefit of lovin’ with a Taurus man is that his is a fixed sign, which means that once he gets going, he’s got stamina for the long haul. Taurean sex is akin to the slow food movement — he savors every bite!
What Taurus doesn’t do
Taurus is neither experimental (Aquarius) nor into power games (Scorpio). He does not need to be worshiped (Leo). He’s not into talking about it (Air), and although he loves to connect, he’s not all mushy (Water) during lovemaking.
