Taurus and Scorpio bring sensuality and sexuality today in one erotic package.   They are legendary for being possessive, because they meld their lives so completely with those they love. 

Both have personae that come across as self-contained, being fixed signs of rooting in.  That's what's shared here, a desire for security, whether its material or emotional.  

This is attractive to the other, as a challenge, and as something potentially solid.

Both the Bull and the Scorpion want love that lasts and is deep and soulful.

You'll get clues reading about the Taurus-Scorpio polarity, since these signs are opposites. That means there's a familiarity there, but also a sense of being with your polar opposite.  That makes this a relationship that will provoke growth, and requires high trust and shared goals.

Come Hither Stare

Scorpio's magnetic aura is captivating to Taurus, who sees a prize worth possessing. Taurus is one of the few signs that meets the Scorpio glare with an equally fixed gaze. The chemistry comes from this showdown, and delicious tension of what might happen.

Taurus in love is tactile, loyal and looking for a sure thing.

Scorpio in love is enveloping, jealous and fiercely protective.

They telepath a mutual understanding of what that reserve and seriousness is about. Through sensual pleasure and relaxed, but intense times, they gain entrance into the others private world.

Taurus appeals to Scorpio's desire for a settled, constant mate. Their big shared vice of being possessive can be the fixative that holds them in place. They know how to reassure the insecurities, and even welcome a smidge of jealousy as a sign the other is truly enmeshed.

Scorpio has intuitive powers and Taurus is master of the 3-D physical world -- as a team they can experiment in bringing visions into form.

The Bull shows Scorpio how to relax and let down their guard.

The Venus-ruled Taurus is a safe haven and demonstrates how to create beauty in a sometimes 'ugly' world. Scorpio pulls Taurus into depths previously unknown, and invites the Bull to greater self-understanding. Taurus gets schooled on the psyche, and drawn into the worlds of mystery, deep emotional transformation and sexual catharsis.

Fixations

The Scorpio-Taurus works because they've met their match in the other. When Scorpio gives the evil eye, Taurus doesn't back down. Both can be stubborn and "fixed" in their stance, but in their refusal to yield, a strong bond is formed across that divide.

Things go wrong when neither is willing to compromise, and the arguments grow more fierce and entrenched. It works well when there's a common goal -- a shared sense of purpose -- and they can become immersed into challenging feats together.

In the sack, they're passionate and deep, Scorpio emotionally and Taurus sensually. They speak with their eyes. As long as the personal barricades never get too high, this is a powerhouse duo that can last a lifetime.

Upside: Love glue is heavy duty; ambitious and self-motivated; sensuality + sexuality = satisfying intimacy; similarly reserved and self-controlled; shared desire to cocoon/go into cave; deeply rooted emotionally; loyal; passionate.

Downside: Danger of stagnating; jealousy a biggie; control and manipulation off the charts; the Bull is passive and the Scorpion is covert with agenda; much unspoken causing build-up of negativity.
