Both the silence and the roar of the Bull are an experience known, sooner or later,
to every "Michael" who has the Sun, Moon or Ascendent in Pisces, in an association
with Taurus. But especially to the Sun Sign male Fish.
When the Taurean girl plays romantic marbles, she shoots to win, and to
keep all the aggies. But when she forgets her common sense, she'll find herself
playing "Blind Man's Bluff," and that's a game she could lose, unless she cheats
a little, and peeks out from under the hanky tied over her eyes. She might as
well, if she's playing with a Fish. He'll certainly cheat a little, by peeking out
If it looks like it's leading him into the hook of a permanent attachment, he
could be a poor loser, and scoot away before he gets caught. But that's only his
protective Neptune reflex action, and he'll be back. His instinct to return may
be guiding him well, because there's lots of hope for lasting happiness inherent
in a love affair between this man and woman.
The Bull and the Fish both like peace and quiet. They both believe in letting
sleeping dogs lie. Why ask for trouble? There's enough of that falling in
your lap every day, unsolicited, without chasing it, is her feeling. The Pisces
man agrees wholeheartedly. Whistle for trouble and it will zoom right in on you,
is the way he sees it. So, don't whistle where Lady Bad Luck can hear you, or
she'll be sure to pop open the lid of Pandora's Box, and you'll have no one to
blame but yourself. Well, that's not quite right. Piscean misfortunes are rarely
their own fault. The Fish just naturally gets tangled in other people's torments,
because he's a such a good listener.
Another thing these two Sun Signs often have in common is that, after all
the care they take to avoid sticky seaweed (in the case of Pisces) or barbed wire
and brambles (in the case of the Bull) they both stand a good chance of falling
into the grip of the gloomies anyway, thanks to their mutual inclination to
brood, and their tendency toward pessimism. But the Taurus girl is often more
patient, and more certain of the final outcome, than the inwardly restless Pisces
man. She doesn't mind setting a bear trap for something or someone she wants,
then waiting without a murmur of discontent, as long as necessary, for the jaws
to snap shut. In fact, she may even enjoy waiting for people when they're late,
because it gives her a chance to practice her calm in emergencies.
It's not a bad habit for her to possess, if she plans on becoming seriously involved
with a Fish, because most Pisces men have never been on time in their
lives. Unless they have a Virgo or other more stable Moon Sign or Ascendent.
There are some Pisces men who are late for work, for the movies, for dental appointments,
for New Year's Eve (mostly because they start celebrating it in November)
and for their own weddings (sometimes even missing them altogether).
The Pisces man may wonder what his true image is to the Taurus girl. He
won't really care, but he may wonder. A Fish usually doesn't work up a lot of
anxiety symptoms when he's in love, at least, not on the surface. He may fret
mildly about the rent money, what life really means, what the future holds andsuch, but to Pisces, romance is a natural state of being. This bright, gentle, po"anywhere,
The Taurus girl instinctively "feels" through her senses. She has a serene
charisma, a soothing aura, an exquisitely tender touch, and an instinctive desire
to blanket the man she loves with warm affection - to tickle him with soft
feathers of humor. Combine that with her throaty midnight whispers, and her
soft Venus curves, and you can see why they usually vibrate to the same emotional
rhythm. Her feminine tendency to gently submit to, and not attempt to
dominate her man, is enormously satisfying to the Piscean male, who may have
been through some romantic nightmares with more aggressive females. Taurus
and Pisces know how to clearly communicate their mutual desires to each other,
as well as how to fulfill them, so their physical union can be a beautiful experience
of both earthy passion and unearthly ecstasy.
However, their total happiness together depends on which kind of Fish he
is, the kind who sinks (by choice) or the kind who swims rapidly upstream. If
he's the sunken kind, lurking among the conch shells at the bottom of the ocean,
hoping to find the lost continent of Atlantis down there - or maybe just meditatingan abstract scientific theory in the cool, green quiet - he may be immune
to all the mermaids, however alluring. That is, unless he finds one with two
strong feet planted on firm ground, who's willing to support him both emotionally
and financially until he reaches his dream. A Taurus girl may be willing to
fill that double order for a while. But after a time, the Bull's slow anger will be
aroused. If he leans on her patience too long with what she regards as a lack of
good sense and a disregard for security, she'll explode into one of her rare, but
violent rages, and when the thunder dies away, the Fish will have quietly disappeared.
But she won't notice, because once she makes up her mind, this girl
doesn't look back. She read about someone who did that, who was turned into a
pillar of salt for her weakness.
Even if he's an active, swimming Fish, with stronger fins and tougher scales,
she may still not comprehend how it is with him, what he goes through in coping
with everyone's tears and troubles, and touches for cash. A Fish can be wonderfully
clever and creative, in clear water. But if she constantly muddies it with
her earthy stubbornness, and others keep polluting it with impositions on his
time and sympathy, he may turn to the solace of a few rainbows on the rocks at
the corner bar. Then she'll start to frown or pout. And that's the beginning of
The three-part formula for breaking a Taurus girl's heart is: false promises,
deception and idle drifting. The triple formula for healing it is: honesty, fidelity
and dependability. If he remembers that, it could be the beginning of the end of
If she accepts his need for periods of isolated contemplation to relax his jangled
nerves, he'll always return to her serenity, for a few jokes, a warm bath, a
cup of hot soup - and those throaty midnight whispers. And that could be the
beginning of a love as special, and as worth waiting for, as Groundhog's Day or
Christmas morning. Beneath the passion they feel is the warm foundation of
the 3-11 vibration of true friendship which never fails to deepen love,when it has passed the test of Time.
etic man, if he's a typical Fish, is very much at home in romantic waters, where
he probably learned to swim and dive at a shockingly early age. The Taurus girl
was still swooning over Deanna Durbin films, or cracking up over Howdy Doody
(depending on her age group) while he was planning his first seduction (or being
seduced himself, which is more likely). Love, or the fulfillment of it, comes late
to the average Taurean female, which is perhaps why she appreciates it and values
it more than women born under other Sun Signs. It's the waiting that
makes things seem special and exciting, whether it's Christmas, Groundhog's
Day or your first kiss.
Whatever his image may be to her, I hope she tries to halfway understand
him. I say halfway, because she'll be lucky if he doesn't baffle her completely in
the beginning. He's so absolutely different from every other man she's ever
known that she can't help being secretly excited by his mysterious elusive quality,
even though she normally doesn't trust a complicated or changeable personality.
It's because of the magnetic 3-11 vibration between them, a Sun Sign Pattern
implying a karmic tie, which is responsible for the strong feeling of
compulsion in the relationship. A Taurus woman may feel a strong attraction
toward certain Scorpio men too, but it will be mostly physical. With a Pisces
man, it often goes deeper than that, and it's not so easily explained. Besides, he
so obviously needs someone to cook for him, believe in him, comfort him and
love him, all talents in which she excels.
She may occasionally give in to moods of self-pity and dark forebodings.
But when her perspective returns, she'll submit to the gentle influence of Venus
again, and slip back into her old, comfortable ways. When she's herself, a Taurus
woman is firmly convinced that anything can be cured with a tub full of
warm water, a cup of hot soup, some cool reason and a few jokes. And that includes
everything from trivial upsets to major tragedy. The Pisces man's complicated
depressions may need somewhat more extensive and intricate, less prosaic
therapy, but he'll enjoy her treatments. She has an undeniably calm and
relaxing influence upon his spirit when he's troubled.
Sexually, these two relate well to each other. His Neptunian approach to
sex can be described in two words: sensuous and romantic. So can hers. Both of
them are determined to feel every possible shade and tone of sensual experience
it's possible to know while confined in the flesh, so there will probably be an excellent
rapport between them physically. The Pisces man lives almost entirely
in and through his psychic nervous system. In his sexual behavior, as in all his
activities, he yearns to escape into an ever-higher heaven
anywhere out of the world!"his blindfold, to see where the relationship might be leading him.
