Among the traditional associations to Taurus is the realm of material stability and security. And there’s no doubt about it, Taurus likes his security in tangible, unchangeable forms – like gold bullion, or valuable antique furniture, or a really superb Ferrari. Abstract wealth, tied up in investments, or wealth of a non-corporal kind (like knowledge, self-understanding, friends, and other less graspable commodities) is not really wealth to a Taurus.

Often he relaxes so much that he barely moves again. Astrology for Lovers

Scorpio has an uncanny way of perceiving what other people don’t wish to be known. Often they don’t know it themselves, which makes things even more uncomfortable. It is very unnerving to feel that somebody knows something about you that you don’t know yourself. From early childhood on, Scorpio sees through hypocrisy and sham with his curiously, tuned nose for undercurrents. Being watery, he will often not be able to formulate these perceptions. More likely, he’ll have strong, immediate gut reactions to people. And you can be pretty sure that when he smells brimstone, he’s liable to be dead right. The trouble is that he smells brimstone just about everywhere. Astrology for Lovers
