Taurus, your planetary ruler Venus shifts out of Leo on October 2nd and enters Virgo until the 27th. You may find that your sexual desires go from being super activated, to being more subdued. That doesn’t mean you won’t be having sex or won’t be turned on — but it does mean you’ll be much more selective and perhaps even antisocial as the month of October begins, particularly due to the influence of the Aries Full Moon kicking off the month on October 1st.
This full moon activates your sector of spirituality, so some Taurus’ may have been practicing abstinence or celibacy for most of the year, and it’s around the beginning of October that you’ll realize just how much of an effect it’s had on your physical and spiritual health. If you feel like you’ve evolved quite a bit due to taking a break from sexually merging with others, this full moon you may receive an awakening that tells you it’s time to let your lover(s) in again, or to call them in through manifestation practices where you get super clear on what you want. Venus’ presence in Virgo is here to help you do so.
But Taurus, make sure that you’re not solely focused on the type of sexual and romantic partner you want this month — put the energy out there regarding the type of lover and bomb sex partner you also will be, in your most ideal world. How many times will you make your lover cum and scream your name? How many remnants of nail scratches will be visible on their back? Hickies, anyone? Just because Venus is in Virgo doesn’t mean you’ll be feeling prudish this month — you’ll just focus more on the details of the sexual bliss you and your lover(s) decide to feel.
If you’re riding solo and don’t feel like sex is in the cards for you, think again around the Libra New Moon October 16th. Libra, like Taurus, is ruled by Venus, the Planet of Love, so this is one of the most powerful new moons for setting love and sex-related intentions. One caveat though: Mercury, the Planet of Communication, and Mars, the Planet of Action, will both be retrograde this month, in the signs of Scorpio and Aries respectively. You may not be feeling as direct, aggressive or even desired as usual with Mercury and Mars being retrograde, but it’s all in your head Taurus. Before trying to connect with another person sexually or emotionally, spend time around the Libra New Moon hyping your own self up in front a mirror, or creating a very sensual sexual haven in your bedroom. The more intimately you connect with yourself and activate your sexual aura, the more of a magnet you’ll become for the sex and intimacy you desire from others. Watch the visual for Dossé-Via’s “Love Mantra” if you need cosmic inspiration to help activate the divine love you deserve — and it’ll also turn you on too.
But what if you’ve denied yourself the ability to receive and give pleasure, Taurus? That’s the question you’ll start asking yourself during the second half of October, when Mercury Retrograde shifts into Libra, and Venus, your planetary ruler also shifts into Libra on the 27th. You’ll realize around your annual Taurus Full Moon on the 31st that you’ve been your own cockblock in more ways than one, and the key to really feeling sexually satisfied is to let go of all the reasons why it might not be the “right” time, place, experience, etc… Hush, and let love in. Dive into the penetrating waters of Scorpio Season as the month ends, and let yourself come alive again by the abundance of pleasure pouring into and around you. This is just the beginning.
As a Taurus, you are ruled by Venus, the Planet of Love and Relationships. You are also a Fixed sign, making you very passionate and somewhat stubborn when it comes to sex and partnerships. No wonder Taurus has a reputation for being such a head-strong lover, and for leaning towards extremes both in and outside of the bedroom. One minute you may feel super horny and need sex as an outlet for your intense emotions, and the next minute you may feel very private and introverted, and want to shun everyone away and go on a sex sabbatical. This back and forth in your sexual nature can both intrigue and deeply confuse your sexual partners. One thing’s for sure, you prefer to have a connection with someone who wants to merge their mind, body and soul with you rather than sleep around. You often lean towards monogamy rather than polygamy, but there are exceptions that occur when the mood is right (and perhaps if you’ve had a few drinks or substances in your system). You like to know that your sexual partner has chosen you and only you, and this helps you become even more invested in the sexual act. When you feel both a physical and emotional connection with someone, the amount of passion that you invest into sex increases exponentially.
Your Taurus self cannot handle shallow lovers or sexual partners. While yes, you are visually stimulated and do enjoy beautiful people, you are also a very profound sign and always thinking deeply and seeking to unravel people’s true personality. So you’ll seek to merge physically with someone who has more to offer you than just their body. You seek partners of substance who can provide you with a variety of sensations and conversations. You also want to make sure that they’re not playing mind games with you, because you want to be their priority, and not just an option. At first, your all-or-nothing intensity may be too much to handle for some romantic partners, particularly Air or Fire signs who tend to keep things light and fun. So you may find yourself drawn to Earth and Water signs who also tend to crave commitment and intimacy. But because you’re not one to shy away from a challenge, if your sexual conquest ends up being a Fire or Air sign, you’ll enjoy getting them to be sexually hooked on you and remain consistently in your bed. There is something about you that can lead to people constantly having you on their mind, Taurus, and you’re well aware of this gift and you don’t use it lightly.
One of the most legendary things about you when it comes to your sex style, Taurus, is that you like to be prepared before getting it on. You will take time to make sure you’re properly groomed and that you feel good in your skin. You also want your sexual partners to have put in that effort, because luxury is important to you. The aesthetic of your environment matters to you — think candles, an incredible playlist, and snacks nearby to recharge your batteries after a series of erotic rounds. As for the foreplay, that’s the one aspect of sex you don’t take lightly. From frisky text message exchanges to deep tissue massages, you don’t miss a beat when it comes to setting the mood and amping up the anticipation with your sex partner. Sometimes people may view you as too slow and steady, and they may be ready to get to have a home run while you’re barely getting to second base, so it’s important for you to communicate your desires and lovemaking style to minimize confusion.
You’re the type of person who would love to have a sex rendez-vous planned in advance so that you can mentally and physically prepare for it. You aren’t as into spontaneous quickies, and because you’re a Fixed sign and less adaptable than most, you may even turn them down altogether if you feel unprepared or caught by surprise. While you tend to be more predictable in the bedroom, you’re never boring. People who engage in sexual relations with you are often out of breath by the end of round one due to your tenacity and consistency. For people to truly see you unleash your uninhibited side in the bedroom, they have to earn your trust and loyalty and you have to feel like they’re here to stay. Then they’ll be in for non-stop sexual thrills that last all night (or day) long.
