This is a challenging combination. Aquarius’ rebel ways do not blend easily with Taurus’ cautiousness. And both are so stubborn that compromise is iffy. But the unexpected silver lining is this: if they decide to make a go of it, this couple’s mutual stubbornness can create a life-long union.
Venus in Aquarius loves to do her own thing. Ms. Aquarius is more interested in a meeting of the minds (with a partner who engages her interest) than a traditional relationship. She wants a lover who keeps her guessing instead of one who keeps her safe. Her detachment makes her very accepting of her partner’s demands; it takes a lot to ruffle her friendly composure. But the one thing she will not tolerate is restrictions on her freedom. Venus in Aquarius can be a steadfast partner, but she’ll leave abruptly if her lover tries to force her into a routine.
Mars in Taurus is the sure thing. Here is the steadfast lover; what he lacks in originality he makes up for in sensual indulgence. Mr. Taurus likes his routine and does not respond well if someone breaks it. Normally placid and supportive, it takes a lot for him to lose his temper. But when he does, watch out. He’s not interested in games, challenges or the thrill of the hunt. He knows what (and who) he wants. Mars in Taurus won’t be showy when expressing his interest, but the object of his attraction will have no doubt about how he feels.
Venus in Aquarius will rock Taurus’s boat. His tolerance and her continuing interest will depend on other factors in their charts. Both are set in their ways, but both have the potential to be life-long partners. Taurus can ground Aquarius, and Aquarius can loosen up Taurus’ routine (if he’s open to it). Each can live with the other’s differences if they accept that freedom and stability can balance each other out. Together, they just might create an unflappable partnership.
