The relationship of Aries and Taurus is all about the balance of energy between masculine and feminine, coming from the ruling planets (Mars for Aries and Venus for Taurus), impulsive and deliberate. Aries brings excitement, while Taurus brings security and romance. Aries wants to jump right in, while Taurus prefers to go much more slowly; Taurus is sensual, patient and gentle, and Aries, though totally unsubtle, is attracted to those qualities, seeing Taurus as their rock, totally stable and loyal forever.
Sometimes Taurus can be possessive, infringing on Aries’ independence, but if Aries can assure Taurus that the relationship is secure and stable, Taurus can be as flexible and tolerant of independence as Aries needs them to be. An Aries-Taurus partnership can be a great learning experience for both Signs. Aries might sometimes play off that Bullish laziness, or try to push Taurus into making hasty decisions, but the Bull can usually convince the Ram to slow down a bit. Taurus can help Aries rein in some of the impractical impulses, and Aries can help Taurus be more spontaneous and adventurous. If both partners understand compromise, they can make theirs a mutually giving and satisfying relationship.
