Taurus in Love

Consider the bull for a moment - there is the one that grazes peacefully, picture-perfect, in the pasture then there is the other, moving ferociously towards the object of its intent, impervious to any obstacle, and really rather dangerous. They're both you, of course, but fortunately the raging bull within hardly ever gets an outing: in the main you are the most patient and contented of creatures.

Taurus is truly the earth-goddess of the zodiac - sensuous and monogamous, happy when your sexual needs are fulfilled and stoical when they're not. But like all goddesses, you have your diva moments - usually when someone has moved the goal-posts in a relationship, changed his mind and given you reason to doubt his fidelity. You, of all the signs, believe in possession - no, not the poltergeist kind, but life-long ownership of those you love. And therein lies your biggest problem. While it may take you time to give your heart to someone, once you have it's a commitment without an escape clause. And although you are loving and long-suffering you have a tendency to suffocate your partners, which can drive them away.

That old cliché if you want something you must first give it wings and send it on its way was tailor-maid for you. Very few living things thrive in captivity, so by giving your lover room to breathe, he'll freely give you all the love, loyalty and security you need. You may have to practice the technique of saying: 'Be out as long as you like, Darling,' and, ' My goodness, hasn't time flown, is it only a week since we spoke?' but once you get it, your man will be putty in your very capable, reliable, tactile, soft and tender hands. In fact he'll never ever want to leave them.

The Tauran Man

This man does not move very fast. He does not believe in the sudden storm of love and he'll need to road-test you for a very, very long time before he proposes marriage. As with everything in life, he wants guarantees and value for money. Mr Taurus is predictable and reliable, not spontaneous and daring, so if you want thrills and spills, head in the opposite direction. What the Taurus man is into is food and comfort - he's the couch-potato with a fondness for haute cuisine. He's also very sensual and sexy - quite the marathon man of the bedroom Olympics. To hook this guy, aside from being solvent and punctual, dazzle him with your intellect and tell him tall tales.

Who's For You

Leo and Aquarius are the top two signs in your little black book, with Scorpio and Taurus coming an equal third - with your own sign it's like looking in the mirror, all your good points and bad points are revealed and are addressed through each other. The Aquarian man fascinates you with his cool approach to life and love - he's a mystery you just long to solve, however, in the long run this guy's cool can come to feel like ice. Mr Leo is sexy and powerful: you can bask in the glow of his style, charm and talent, yet years into the relationship his obsessive self-interest could leave you cold. The Scorpio man is an excellent match - sex should be fantastic, and you're as jealous and possessive as each other: there are just enough sparks and just enough compatibility to keep your relationship throbbing with life for a life-time. Pisces and Cancer are two more great matches for you - they're happy if you're happy, adaptable and kind, and they dislike fights as much as you do.

Life Love Money The Year Ahead for Taurus

There is greater harmony and balance in life, at least until May, so set your plans in stone as early in the year as possible. Saturn and Jupiter are in positions where they can help you find success and happiness, and the further you are prepared to go for your ambitions and desires – quite literally in some instances - the better. Other people make your year, whether they are opening up new territory for you and backing your ideas or because you have someone by your side who makes everything so much better. Uranus enters Taurus on 15 May, which is when the fun really begins! April birthdays are first in line for the unexpected and the unconventional, although you may have to wait until late October to discover quite what this involves. And if you are aged 42-44, the time has come to liberate yourself from aspects of your life that no longer serve a purpose. 2018 is break-out year.

Until early November Jupiter will be in the perfect place to bring the right person into your life and turn love affairs into life-long partnerships. And if you are indeed ready to marry, the weekend of the 14th April could be perfect. Uranus’ transit of your sign will take roughly seven years, so at some point you can expect a challenge to the stability of a long-term relationship. This does not have to be a bad thing, however. A separation can give a couple time to breathe and time to yearn for what was once there: something April Taureans may experience this year. Relationships that come into being in 2018 are unlikely to follow a predictable course: don’t put them in a straight-jacket - release your free spirit.

The long-term picture is good, and the foundations you put in place in 2018 are part of that success story. It could be a case of who you know rather than what you know helping you realize an ambition or it may be that joining a new company or forming a partnership aids success. Money should be in greater supply, and it will be easier to find funding. The eclipses of 31 January, 15 February, 27 July and 11 August could prove instrumental in shunting you onto a new career trajectory and/or they may inspire a home move. Mid-May is another period of opportunity, growth and change. Even though you may prefer to do things the same way as you have always done them, the world around you is changing fast and it will be essential to update your skills, your strategies and your outlook. A rut is no longer a place of safety.
