Welcome to July, Taurus! Your sex life this month will be sensual, unpredictable, and full of sultry vibes. Venus, your ruling planet, enters Cancer on the 3rd of July, activating your communication sector. This takes place one day after the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer kicks off the month and makes you feel so much more vulnerable than you’re used to. You may find yourself feeling emotional when having sex or when connecting romantically with others. This month’s eclipses will be major heart-openers for you, but since you’re someone who tends to keep up a guard and protect yourself until you fully trust your lover, you may find it hard to really let yourself be seen sexually and emotionally at first. Once Mercury goes retrograde on the 7th though, you will start to notice some repetitive patterns in your relationships that must be nipped in the bud for you to truly feel sexually liberated.
Mercury Retrograde plus Venus in Cancer will have you seeking long-term sexual satisfaction, and not short-term flings or one-night stands. But at the same time, Uranus, the Planet of Surprise, is in your sign until 2026, and this causes you to constantly be feeling multiple sensations at once, and often changing your mind about what you want. This can feel frustrating for you since you’re used to consistency and logic, but you should not let this turn into sexual frustration. Use your moodiness and shifts to switch things up in bed with your partner(s). Surprise them just as much as you’re constantly surprising yourself with your eccentric needs. Let them know if you’re in a period of limbo or figuring yourself out, so that you can be transparent about where you are sexually and emotionally. The more open your communication this month, the better. Don’t expect people to read your mind, or to know what you want in bed. You’ll have to be more direct and show them what you want. Take the lead.
Mid-month, eclipse season continues with a Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn, activating your sector of adventure, expansion, and growth. These are themes you’ve been working on both in and out of the bedroom, especially when it comes to pushing yourself out of your comfort zone. Sex during this eclipse will therefore be out-of-this-world. You may let some of your darker fantasies be clear around this time. Whether that involves S&M, threesomes, polyamory, role-play, or whatever else speaks to you, you’ll have the confidence to speak up and let your partner(s) know.
It’s so important to be honest with yourself during this eclipse, Taurus. Even if you try to repress your truth or your desires, they will come out some way or another. But since a Lunar Eclipse also symbolizes endings, it’s possible that a relationship or situationship may end at this time, especially if you feel like you haven’t been able to grow or evolve together. Even if the sex is great, if there’s no depth or consistency to the relationship, you’ll feel prepared to let it go, even if it’s just temporarily…
Once Leo Season begins on the 22nd, your sector of roots and familiarity is activated. Leo energy tends to be fiery, passionate and ultra-confident, and you will start to emit these qualities as a lover. It will be wildly attractive to those you’re with, and they won’t be able to take their hands or eyes off of you. You’ll find yourself having wild fantasies about what’s possible, and once your ruler Venus enters Leo on the 27th, followed by the Leo New Moon on the 31st, you’ll realize that you were the only one standing in the way of making those fantasies come true… You’ll start to go after what (and who) you want with less fear, and you’ll end the month of July feeling sexually blissed out and rejuvenated.
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.
