Famous Taurus-Cancer Couples: Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, Jack Nicholson and Angelica Houston, Anthony Quinn and Katherine DeMille, Jack Klugman and Brett Somers, George Lucas and Linda Ronstadt.
When these two team up, it’s all about home, family, warm hearts and full tummies. Life tends to center around the kitchen and family room. The ‘audience” is a small enthusiastic crowd of one or two, creating a secure circle of life and love. Both partners are rabid about security. They eat, drink, sleep and breath it. As long as they both contribute equally to this ideal haven or port in a storm, things go well. Problems start if one partner is irresponsible or seems not to be contributing to the secure package (called “Our Future”) by taking foolish risks or, really, any risks at all or even shows a pulsebeat now and then. They tend to get things set up and want to keep them that way, thank you very much. Pretty soon their house begins to look like a garage sale. That’s ok. They love the feeling of old, familiar things.
Attract a Taurus Man as a Cancer Woman: Ask him how he feels (meaning are his physical needs being met). Fuss over him – is he eating right? Does he need help with some errands? How’s work going? Keep the conversation very personal. No need to invite the Obamas into the small talk you’ll both enjoy so much. Brush imaginary lint off his shoulder. Straighten his tie. Mirror his body image during conversation. Become more aware of your own body language so you are communicating in the language he understands best.
How to Attract a Cancer Woman as a Taurus Man: Let slip that you pay your bills on time and are supporting a vulnerable elderly relative (or would love to). Ask her about her mother. Your mantra must become “Family is Everything to Me” – of course you don’t mean what she means by that but all’s fair in love and Guerre. Be a conscious tipper. Study the bills carefully before handing over your credit card. Act like you take money very seriously.
Degree of Romance: The urge to submerge and be protected is too urgent to allow for much romance. There’s just enough to be decent to each other on Valentine’s Day.
Degree of Passion: Passion is a little disturbing to these two because it is not premeditated and therefore untrustworthy. Who needs passion as a motivator when the fanatic desire for security underlies every word and deed?
Degree of Friendship: They can be fast friends because they each tend to focus on one other person. It would not occur to one of them to divvy out a microeconomic KIVA loan until they both had enough “stuff” for themselves and that day will never come for these two.
Degree of Marriage: Perfect for marriage and gathering of the clans every Sunday afternoon for a BBQ. Don’t even dream about inviting strangers and stay off that chair. That’s where Uncle Harvey always sits.
Progression of Relationship: Predictable. A huge big deal is made about meeting each other’s families.
Sex: They rely on the feelings of touch associated with sex to bond them nonverbally. They have a strong infantlike visceral connection based on taste and smell. Their lovemaking includes special textures, noises and pet nicknames.
When It’s Over: Endless tears of self-pity with little growth accompanying. Neurotic fears about splitting up possessions. He may continue to live in a room downstairs or in the basement long after they gave begun the separation process.
