Western Star Signs
Aries periodically becomes gripped with an idea and feels that the time to act on this idea is NOW. Taurus prefers to fully digest the whole idea and responds to situations with a more practical and cautious attitude. If Aries stumbles or fails, then Taurus may react with an "I told you so" attitude. This can be infuriating to Aries and very detrimental to the relationship.
If you can appreciate your different approaches, Taurus can help supply the practicality and consistent dedication needed to help bring Aries' ideas and impulses to a fruitful completion. You have very different rhythms. Aries is quicker but less persistent and steady than Taurus.
At heart, Aries is more of the self-starter. Taurus has more of the power of persistence. Taurus may need for Aries to cool it from time to time.
Essentially, if Aries wants to be happy, Aries needs to be first and best. Somehow, some way, Aries need to find a competitive outlet. On the other hand, Taurus needs to be assured that everything's O.K., safe and secure. Once that's taken care of Taurus is ready for gracious living. That is to say, Taurus needs some good food, antique furniture and passion.
Taurus likes to touch nice things, own nice things, wear nice things, eat nice things and have nice things. For Taurus touch or the physical world is real and gives comfort. In fact, "I Have" is something of a philosophy for Taurus.
It is important that Taurus acquire some mastery over the physical, practical and earthly world. Then, paradoxically, Taurus must learn to let go. Taurus will only find security by acquiring a sense of self that is separate from possessions. Actually, it's not so much about what you possess Taurus, but about not being in "survival jeopardy."
