"One of the ironies of relationships is their success depends on your ability to not have a relationship. While mastering the art of intimacy is essential, you need to be comfortable with yourself first. This demands a level of healthy independence, and how you deal with being alone is clearly indicated in your chart. If the thought of not having a partner drives you to make desperate choices, this will impact the quality of your relationships. But if you’re so terrified of getting close to someone that you construct emotional walls, this will impact your love life as well. True security consists of accepting the fact that you are just fine as you are, single or paired up.
Even though Taurus is ruled by Venus, relationship planets in this sign can create a high level of self-sufficiency in a partnership. You’re grounded in the sense that you have everything you need within you. If you’re single and looking, Taurus can manifest extreme patience, because you’re concerned with quality over quantity. You can stubbornly wait for years (if need be) for the right person. Of course, if this energy is overdone, it can stagnate into the eternal bachelor/bachelorette who hunkers down fearfully, because inviting someone in would mean changing your routine."
