If this couple was just one more example of “opposites attract,” it might be a little easier to figure out. However, this earth and water blend is surprisingly compatible, even though, zodiac-wise, Venus in Taurus and Mars in Scorpio are on opposite ends of the spectrum. Confusing? Maybe for everyone else, but for the partners in this pair, their unique chemistry is endlessly fascinating, so who cares if it’s a little complicated to the outside world?
Venus in Taurus is stable and nurturing in relationships, wanting nothing more than to feel comfortable and sensually satisfied. As long as this Venus feels cared for and respected, she is as easygoing as a cow in a grass-filled field. Venus in Taurus has an innate ability to provide her partner exactly what he needs on a physical level. Though potentially possessive and stubborn in relationships, Venus in Taurus also has an inner calm that is soothing to all who come into her presence.
Mars in Scorpio is one of the sexiest of all the placements for Mars. Seeking transformation and intensity in relationships, this Mars knows exactly how to magnetically attract pretty much whomever he wants. As a water sign, Mars in Scorpio seeks to connect emotionally, as well as physically, with the object of his desire. This Mars wants to possess his lover inside and out, and has little patience for anyone who cannot match his depth.
Venus in Taurus has a placid calm that intrigues Mars in Scorpio, making him want to dig beneath the surface and stir up this earthy goddess of sensuality. Mars in Scorpio’s passionate intensity awakens Venus in Taurus in a powerful way, catalyzing a potent chemical reaction that is hard for her to resist. The unique interplay of this couple’s energy kindles a fire that has the potential to burn brightly for some time to come.
