Last Month’s Love Horoscope for Taurus
Your New Moon shines on the 15th in your first house of personality and ego, making this a great time to meet someone new. Make sure you are out and about in the sort of places you can meet someone.

Clearing the air and moving on is the best way to handle this.
YOUR LOVE LIFE ADVICE: Mercury the planet of communication will move through your sign from May 13th – 29th and will give you a great opportunity to say what’s on your mind in a timely manner and in a way that is appropriate for patching things up.
Love and Relationship Guide
Taurus: Love in Slow Motion
Taureans know who and what they want, and they take their time when it comes to matters of the heart. Sensual and never in a hurry, their love is referred to as “Earth child” love, which provides soothing comfort to those lucky enough to experience it. Although they are known as hopeless romantics, Taureans feel the need to secure their future first before entering a serious relationship. Patient and loyal, they expect a partner who will appreciate these traits and give them back in return.
NO BULL IN THE BOUDOIR
A Venus vixen, you earthlings like the finer things in life most of the time. And in relationships, romance is a must. You are no ’wham bam thank you mam’ type deal. Flings aren’t your thing most of the time. Your prefer monogamy over anything else and usually enjoy making love versus having sex.
You’re looking for someone stable, romantic and consistent in a relationship. Someone who enjoys dining out and cooking or cleaning up the dishes after you’ve cooked. You also love a man who brings you flowers – for no other reason than he saw them and thought of you. Or a woman who stops by the shops on the way home and grabs you a slice of your favourite dessert or a bottle of wine you enjoy – just because.
Sensual, loyal and always refined is how most astrologers would describe you. So it makes sense that you need someone along those lines by your side. Virgos, Capricorns and Pisces are all good matches for you as they all understand your need to be constantly ’wooed’.
You tend to stick with the water and earth signs as a rule. Fire and air signs tend to rattle your cage too much. Scorpios, Cancers, Pisces and Capricorns are all people that understand you and vice versa. You are extremely loyal and expect that in return. If someone lets you down, you take a long time to get over it. And you prefer to have a handful of true blue friends versus far flung group of people that you touch base with every now and again. Ugly behavior (drunkenness, cheating on partners etc.) isn’t something you tolerate either.
Being an earth sign and ruled by harmonious Venus, you do tend to keep your family close by. While your siblings may choose to take off overseas or move interstate, most Taureans can be found within a 20 mile/km radius of their family and extended family. Growing up and as a teenager, more than likely you went through some mood swings along with growth spurts. As you mature, the mood swings calm down but you are still very headstrong and that can alienate you from some family members – especially siblings. It’s up to you to show them how you can handle stress and be a contributing family member all the time, versus just when you can agree to disagree!
TALK TO ME…
You’re not exactly known for your chatterbox ways Taureans, however when you are relaxed and with the people you love, you are actually very funny and witty. Some of you are simply shy and don’t like to hog the spotlight. Which actually makes you a great dinner companion or flatmate!
WHEN TALKING TO…
Other bulls – You feel at ease and the conversation flows easily. Especially if you’re cooking or working out together – you like nothing more than a nice meal followed by a leisurely stroll with another bull. Plus shopping together is a blast!
Gemini – Twins tend to take over and dominate the conversation. Or they skip all over the place and you end up trying to work out exactly where you are in the conversation versus simply enjoying each other’s company.
Cancer – One of your go to signs as far as nurturing and being genuinely interested in what you have to say and help you figure issues out. A water sign, you are an earth sign – water and earth make mud and mud sticks!
Leo – Their ferocity and energy can be a bit overwhelming for you at times. Leos are fire signs and like most of the attention on them. However if you enjoy being part of their entourage and all of the fun Leos bring with them, you can hang with them every now and again.
Virgo – This is one sign you definitely click with and can talk to about anything and everything. A fellow earthling, you feel connected to Virgos and grounded with their company. You can talk to them about your relationship issues with your partner and trust that it will go no further too.
Libra – Librans bring out the best in you – they too are ruled by Venus the goddess of love and romance and understand your need for quiet time and surrounding yourself with beautiful things – flowers, candles and home goods. Great shopping partners for you – they are usually very stylish so are a great help.
Scorpio – You two bond quickly and remain friends forever. Sure you might havesome ups and downs – but you are opposite signs in the zodiac and love spending time with each other. You can trust them completely and they can trust you – so you both know where the bodies are buried!
Sagittarius – Sags are super confident and this can at first be slightly overwhelming for you – as you are much more humble. You might feel as if they egg you on to say and do things you aren’t comfy with. However, whenever you need someone fun to hang with…
Capricorn – Another great earth match up for you. Capricorns are ruled by serious Saturn and usually have one or more lessons to teach you in this lifetime. You could find a great mentor in a Capricorn – someone who is wise and great with finances too.
Aquarius – This sign is way too ’iffy’ for the majority of you. They’re very cerebral and aloof and you might get the feeling that they’re talking over the top of you rather than to you some of the time. If you do hit it off, it will be on their terms.
Pisces – They’re dreamy and super sensitive which is often difficult to navigate – moody as well but then again, you can be moody too – but when you are both in a great mood, there is no one better to talk philosophically with than a Pisces.
