Sex and sensuality meet with Venus in Scorpio and Mars in Taurus. Though this lusty duo has its planets in opposing signs, both partners display a healthy interest in anything related to “getting it on.” Together, they create their own special form of Tantra, bringing the art of sex to its highest level. Though the challenges of their differences may sometimes slow their desire for union down, when they persevere, they are able to join together in a seamless dance of intimacy.
Venus in Scorpio thrives in relationship when deep emotional waters are shared with her partner. Loving to dive down into the bottomless depths of the psyche, this Venus views sex as the best way to express the depths of her feelings for her partner. Venus in Scorpio has a magnetic attraction, a smoky and mysterious “something” that attracts others while at the same time scaring them just a little bit, too. Love is for the long-term with this Venus, and for this reason, she has a possessive “’til death do us part” approach to anyone who tugs on her heart strings.
Mars in Taurus actively seeks sensual outlets of pleasure: touch, taste, sound, sight and smell. The more the better, as far as this Mars is concerned. Mars in Taurus woos in a steady, comfortable way, providing solid material offerings to the object of his affections. This Mars may move at a snail’s pace, but when he locks in on a lover, it takes a lot to shake him loose. Venus in Scorpio’s depth and mystery drive this Mars wild, uprooting his secure base and yet offering an expansive menu of sensual pleasures to delight and titillate him. Mars in Taurus’ easy sensuality and grounded, slow and steady approach to love and sex in turn draws Venus in Scorpio towards him.
These two run into rough waters only when they try to make the other be more like them and allow power struggles and ego battles to dominate their connection. As they learn to be the “yin” to each others “yang” they will find that together they create a perfect whole of love and intimacy.
