I have paid for a three month subscription and its now over ten days and still no activation im disappointed zoosk and there is no customer support please sort this out Conrad. I am a bit concerned about who there chooses the quick pick. Are they blind, If not, do they just close their eyes and throw a dart? I specifically said Anglo s only. What is the status mentally of the person making these choices?
What again am I paying for? I was on Zoosk for a month. I met a guy and we chatted numerous times and exchanged numbers. Things progressed and as of today, he was trying to still scam money from me. He claims to be from Edmonton, Alberta however he is not. He is a scammer, trying to bilk money from women. He has been reported to police with all of his information. You should delete and block him to prevent women from being preyed upon. However, there are many women that are out there looking for someone and they may fall victim.
The authorities are aware that he is on your site as well. Please consider this in deciding on action you will take. The way I see it is our gov. It is ripping people and me unnessary charges. I do not see how these people could sleep at night. I believe I am being discriminated by your company because I happen to mentioned I am a disabled Veteran, I was told my photo was not suitable for your site which is an excuse to block my profile , I told one of your people that I was a disabled Veteran so you have a problem with United States Veteran , so I believe that the other Vet brothers and the VA, should be told of this so they can perhaps contact other brothers about your prejudice with US Veterans.
Awful site — impossible to unsubscribe, so they keep taking money from your account. I made a eft payment. Please acsess my account. Why did you remove the Gallery view for search results? I subscribe to your site this Sunday October 5 and right now I decided to be in this site. I want to cancel. I have been trying to call and to searches for canceling. Please get my request and help me. On different time I can comeback right I have to cancel.
Thank you for your support. I would wait for your response. If the activation fee is waved and there is no automatic billing in the future I will subscribe. But I will not let zoosk automaticly charge me every month. Wave the fee and I will subscribe. This is not enough could someone look into this and my account be unblocked thank you and wait for your reply.
Cancel I want to stop and cancel my account with zoosk. I have been calling no one answers. I cant find anything on the site to cancel. Please get my request in as soon as possible I Robt want to renew. This site is junk! I plan to deny the charges on my CC. Pls be aware everybody, somebody else with the same surname requested their account be cancelled instead mine was cancelled.
My account is now blocked but money is stilling coming out of my bank account If u try and contact zoosk u get no reply. I think the whole zoosk is fake. Once again pls cancel my account thanx. There seems to be technical errors.
Why is this happening? I m no longer interested in this dating site and would expect a refund for what I had to go through! I have made direct payment into your Absa account but is still not connected. I cannot read my messages or send any messages. I have tried calling your phone It Says closed call back. I have a photo in hand to up load to you but I seem to be blocked ,I have no photos in computer only one in hand to upload to you.
Just joined Zoosk October 14 when I decided to order coins for I got cheated twice Zoosk took away my coins and kept my money! Zoosk, you are the lowest form of dating service out there! She will report you to the BBB! Please please please will you change my profile from me a woman wanting to meet a man it says I want to meet a woman and I dint. Drop your one time activation fee so I can join up for 1 month. I told them to stop charging me and they still are and I can find an email so I can e-mail them.
Anyone know their e-mail add? Im very dissapointed in you service. You get people to pay to you sight that after you take there money than you tell them that they cant access the sight unless they post a photo. Thats not fair because if you would have told me that I couldnt get into talking to anyone without a photo than I woulnt have joined your site.
Have you ever thought that some people cant or dont know how to post a photo. All I wanted to do is to be able to talk to someone and to meet new people most other sights will atleast let you talk to someone. I dont know how to post a photo like alot of other people.
Im just a country boy with no cell phone service and all of this is new to me. On other sights you are at least able to communicate with someone. No satellite in my area??? What planet is that on? I immediately contacted them informing them I wished to cancel my membership due to their charging hidden cost.
After cancelling my membership with Zoost I contacted ny bank to put a stop on any payments to Zoost as the hidden fee was debited by Zoost my credit card fraudulently.
I intend taking legal action against Zoost to recover the membership fee and fraudulently obtained activation fee and I urge all other dissatisfied Zoost clients to follow suit and expose their illegal and fraudulent abuse of clients on social media as I also intend doing unless they refund my unlawfully obtained money.
My bank informed me that I should cancel my credit card and order s new one to stop Zoost stealing more of my money without my permission. I recommend that anyone who is still being charged by Zoost via credit card to cancel your credit card and fet a new one with a different account number.
I want to join zoosk now but need activation fee waived and 20 percent discount enail me a promo code. On there it states that if you are bisexual, zoosk will help you set up two profiles. It says if you cannot find answers in faq, then click the contact link to customer service.
I set up a second account, then all of a sudden it disappeared, and said it was no longer valid. There is no way I am paying for the use of this site. I am really not impressed. I think this site is very poorly managed, and I am not risking it. I signed up to zoosk for one month only and they have continued to take money out of my account for three more months! Has anyone gotten their money back? At first it was fantastic. Each day, more and more matches photos were unabled to be opened.
I noticed it got worse everyday. Nothing works, nothing opens. I spent half the day yesterday trying to phone them number disconnected , get the to call back option, tried for 2 hours, nothing happened. Sent 2 emails, no reply and here we are with still no access. Managed to take my payment without any hiccups thought. Please if you can help me. I have tried to subscribe to Zoosk Dating on 2 occasions and all I receive is free coins. I paid for a 1 months subscription and only received coins, without being subscribed.
Then I paid for 3 months and have received more coins, but im still not subscribed. Ive joined other dating sites like Datingbuzz and have had no problems in being accepted with them, no cons with coins. I am seriously not impressed with Zoosk, as now I have made two payments and still not a member on this site.
What makes it worse is I really feel conned by Zoosk and now that I have paid all this money my hands are tied and Im sitting with all these coins that I dont want!!!!!!!
My name is Robert palson I joined your sight about 3weeks ago an I think that this sight is a scam just like match. I paid for 6 months, have only been on 20 days. Seems like there are only a few people on. I just payed 44 dollars to try for a month but I cannot send a message it said subscribe now, and I try to call customer service but cannot reach.
I want my acct close after a month. My mate has posted an explicit picture on my account profile pics causing the administrator to block my account. Would it be possible for the administrator to clear the image and unblock my account? This is outright theft. They are a pack of thieves and wankers!!! How come when you block someone they can still see you?
When you accidentally delete someone you cant click on the alert page to view them? If someone wants to meet you and you paid for a subscription why do you have to buy coins? And why is there no favorites page where you can keep track of how many times someone looks at you?? Why can I not have favorites to see how many times ppl view me or if Im interesting to get to know them. How come there is no where to make a favorites page??
Why do you have to buy coins to see who wants to meet you if you have already paid for a subscription!! This site needs a lot of work or Im done. I dont think this site has the best intentions but does want to try and make the most money…. I was using Zoosk for about a month, I was just checking the place out. I Never put a profile pic on my account. The Mobile app constantly was asking for one so I uploaded a picture I took of the sunset so it would stop asking for one.
I have had an authorized payment come out of my account and I have not been able to make contact. Have had to take further action as company has not replied. I had a month subscription once and didnt go on one date. Hi, I paid R Yes you currently have a member who is not You currently have a Zoosk member,35 from Smithfield, NC. That has a full blown photo of her boob.
Are you going to do something about this? Zoosk is a JOKE! Calling Zoosk is also a rip off, empending hold, no answer and hang up on you. I will be calling in the morning,I tried to call and checked my card immediately and no one is at customer service and the money was deducted. Please return it to my account until I am ready to try the service. All I have on the card is 23 dollarservice and the money was deducted.
This was done today February 6, I have paid for it and kindly would like to use your services. Hello i am trying to get in to my zoosk account and answer some of my members but i cant it seems i am blocked i joined up again through facebook which is weeks and weeks ago and since then i have not been able to get in is there anyway you can help us out with this please i will be very gratefull email me back with a message please thank you very much.
I have contacted Zoosk customer service several times this past week. My question was how do I use Zoosk coins and how many for each use. You answering system is obviously over seas. So, what are my coins good for and how many coins for each contact and does the type of contact different in the amount of coins for each type of contact. Pretty simple question, I think. And the answer is??????????????????????????????? I have subscribed myself in this dating site and have strugled to access to use the service for the week or so, however, for some reson thati dont know, i never could communicate once i try to contact someone, it ask me to became a member i have paid by credit card.
Hi, I paid 3 month subs for a Zoosk subscription hey have no email address where i can send them mail and also i need someone to urgently respond to me as this amount of money is alot to just lose. My account is blocked by the administrator. What can I do to find out why my account is blocked??? I have been trying to pay for a three month subscription with out any success. I have been trying to make contact with Zoosk, there seems to be no contact details to make contact with them, please advise as to how I can get support from Zoosk.
My name is Johan Moller. I am from Johannesburg. I have paid R I made an electronic transfer of R Pls activate my account asap. I hate the fact that there is no option to view yur search results as a graph view. Now you HAVE to view each individualprofile and send out false alets as if you are viewing them as poteltial interests!
Going both ways, it sucks when you think someone is interested in you but was forced to look at your profile, you send a message and get no response! This is the worst dating site I have ever used. I joined up and received a lot of messages straight up. Two days later I paid my joining fee so I could respond to messages and see profiles, completed my own profile and uploaded photos.
On logging onto my email I had received an email from Zoosk customer service confirming that I had cancelled by subscription!!!!. These people are either scams or rip offs as I had definitely not done this straight after paying my money!!!!.
I replied to this email with my concerns and questions about all this but have not had a reply. I have not been able to find a telephone number that I can use or email addresses for my complaint and to find out what and why this has happened. I will be definitely reporting this site and trying to get my money back!!!! If i have been billed i want my money returned. Ihave asked you to delete me off this site. Iagree with Liz this is a rip off. They have taken money out of my account after I had cancel the subscription the same day, which I want back.
Hi Zoosk people you have taken money out of my account under false pretence because I have not had any contact with you for so era year so please put the Greetings, I want to get out from this site I would love to help if you are, if you can get me out of this site thank you. I paid for the Zoosk service 2 weeks ago.
Then, when I try appear a advice that I have never paid. But it is in my credit card billing. How can I solve it? I moved to Kenya on 31st January and discovered that the only communication I could receive from Zoosk was that Zoosk does not operate in my area. I have done everything possible to communicate to Zoosk that since you do not operate in my area, my subscription should be cancelled and the subscription amounts charged on the card refunded. I have just been locked out of my account after less than a month into a 3 month paid subscription.
They say they have no record of me or my email. I have turned the matter over to the Australian Federal Police in relation to credit card theft, identity theft and general fraud. This site is a scam!! I find it unbelievable to find such a scam with such a high profile web site, right in front of the authorities, who shouild be taking this company down.
I bough coins did not receive. I emailed zoosk to tell them to stop taking payments out of my accounts and they did please return my money. I would not have purchased the service if I knew this. Then tonight I mistakenly clicked on the coin purchase and am afraid my credit card is getting charged.
This service seems deceptive and a rip off. I just wanted to take a moment to let you know that I and Kai Jensen met on Zoosk in March and got married on February 28th of this year.
We were both very satisfied with our experience and just wanted to thank you! I paid for one month membership and do not let me continue, the page ask me for different plan to paid, I already paid, please help me do I need mail box id? I have not joined your dating site and you are taking money at my account. Do not proceed with anything without my authority, no monies are to be taken from my account.
Still you billed me R out of the blue on 21 July. Could you please give me an explanation for this? I joined and the first profile that came up there was no way I could read it without buying coins. That is a rip off.
On top of that they advertise on the television that you can join free and that is a bunch of bunk. I would not recommend this site to anyone. I joined the Zoosk site and paid for 3 months. They took the money off my bank and then they blocked my account saying the payment failed.
I checked my bank statement and the money went off. I had to phone them in America from South Africa and they told me that I have to go to my bank and have them reverse the charges.
I send them proof that the money was taken off my bank, but they still refused to refund or reinstate my account. This is a big scame and fraudulent. I have reported them to my bank and they have put a fraud alert on them.
So please be careful! All I want either to unblock my account or refund the money. Personally I would not recommend anyone due to such poor customer service. I have never gotten the sight to work properly and have always had a communication problem. Every time I want to chat I get a message that I need to subscribe. I thought I did that back in April. I did get your help sight and they sent me a e-mail to my old e-mail address and after I read the coaded crap it said to push the red button to reset my password.
I would love to get this cleared up so a phone call would be appreciated!!!!!!!! I am from the Caribbean and I will like to know how to get a code to get Subscribe on zoosk please. I signed up for an account and made my first payment..
I have sent repeated messages and have not received one acknowledgment from anyone. I Signed up for an account and with no reason or warning was blocked by an administrator.
Feeling like some kind of criminal. I have been getting notifications from your sites. I have never been a member or intend to be a member apparently my profile is on your site and I want it removed immediately looks like I may have been hacked.
I did because there were different guys on that website that I wanted to meet. This is the third email I have sent to you, and the issue has still not been resolved. In fact, no one has even responded to my emails. I subscribed to Zoosk many months ago, and the account has been closed for a number of months.
Please fix this before I have to take additional steps. Ich warte bereits seit 5 Tagen auf die Freischaltung. It is a scam, a legal scam. Some worse than others. Zoosk is a very sloppy operation. All smart scammers and con artists do the same thing. Enough to pay all the lawyer and court fees, and then they scram. Money is the biggest addiction of all. Yes, a very sloppy operation for sure.
Sex is the second biggest addiction. HEY, everybody is lonely and wants to get one of those broads into bed, right? I was blocked for no reason please tell me why, if you are not going to let me on stop payment bow please… I was not on your site for one week and you block me not right…. I try all night to figure out how to block this person but unsucessful. Please I need help. Am I doing something wrong. I have my account for about couple years today Zoosk blocked me for no reason they say they dont need give me reason, it make me upset i got couple hundred gifts also some friends there but they block my account the guy told me i earn to much discount and I should open new account no one word explanation why.
Today I finally joined your site? I just thought it was a mistake. I emailed CS to ask about what happens to your profile if cancel or do not renew. Instead of answering my question they canceled my subscription without my authorization — still had a couple of months left. Now they will not respond to me at all. I could believe one or two not replying but all of them, after they have contacted me. Good evening zoosk, Would it be possible you could get me on line tonight on my subscription.
I will pay next week for a months contract. Please if this will be possible, it will be great. THIS is jrtakeachance i want my name off your dating site. I subscribed to Zoosk three months ago. No one want to date you they looking for sex picture. I will not do that.
Please put my money back into my account. I did a payment already on D line. B4 I Make a Cancellation.!! Today this early eve,I just made a PMT. I filled out completely D Qq? I have cancelled my subscription, however yet again this has been taken. The subscription was cancelle last year. I am not going to ring your number, as have tried before and was not answered. As I have cancelled via my account I expect whatever money you have taken from me since last year. Well, maybe i am stupid, a made a one month subscription and i thought that was that, one month and business closed, but I was charged for one year until my credicard balance was empty, when i realized.
I only enjoy one month of the service, when i met one person, but i was charged for 8 months. So i feel like I have been stolen for this service, total amount: I am a full paid member n use cancel my account. Do use think that use can still members money bye cancelling there accounts. I need my account cancelled-please and thank you-have asked many times thru email-please cancel asap!!!! I want to know who the hell is running this two bit shit site. I met a great guy on zoosk 6 months ago and we both cancelled our memberships.
We are still together and happy but in the last 2 weeks I have started getting messages from zoosk members again so my account must have been made active again. Could somebody in customer support please can my account again or email me and let me know how to do it and how it came to be active again. Could somebody please explain how my account has become active again when I canned it 6 months ago. Recently I have started to receive messages from zoosk members again.
Sorry this is the 3rd time I v tried but I m not getting return msg even though the ladies want to meet me could you explain where I m going wrong do I have to pay for every msg I send could you please msg back with step by step how to get my msg through thank you.
I advised them that my credit card had been hacked and asked if this was an issue with other users, they now have cancelled my subscription with no refund and blocked me from signing into my account 3 months subscription and that money now gone, how disgusting is that for customer service — feeling ripped off!
I contacted you on November 19, , request to stop taking out money out of my account and you did not do it. Alexander sent to me a confirmation that the account was closed. So what you can do is send that money back to my account. Thanks very much ZOOSK you have cost me my six year relationship as I cannot explain how after being in a happy relationship for six years that I have out of the blue created a dating profile and am getting multiple emails a day from other men!!!!
I am so distraught and extremely angry!!! How dare you take my private information and create a profile without my approval!!! You have destroyed my life and you deserve to be shutdown for this.
Never use this site as I unsubscribed to it 2 months ago and they are still taking money from a site I am no longer on! I have even just yesterday had to go to my bank and they have put a stop on it. So I will wait till next month till I receive my bank setatement to see if they have succeeded!! I can not even begin to express my frustration. I have been a valued customer of Zoosk on and off for a number of years.
Every payment ends with 4 different numbers from my credit card, and I can assure you I did not buy these coins. I find it unacceptable that this is happening and I am appalled. I feel like I pay enough for my monthly subscription which is of course my choice This matter needs to be followed up urgently and explained to me otherwise I can assure you, you will lose a valued customer and I will spread the news of this nonsense.
Please reply asap so that I can rectify this mistake. I just got billed from Zoosk and I did not ask for an automatic subtraction I do not wish to continue using their service I need my money back. I have had no service.. Since May 28th I have called customer service for them to deactive my zoosk account.
I have been blocked by some company not allowing me to access my zoosk account. I tunes subscriptions must be changed where the auto renewal is always OFF until the subscribing customer turns it ON…. I see a class action lawsuit!!!! There was a charge made to my credit card that I did not authorize and I want it reversed immediately! Just as bad is that there seems to be no way to contact your customer support or a help line, If you are not a member.
I have been trying to deactivate this account for quite sometime, you send emails telling me to do this and nothings works. I am more than fed up and disgusted found a whole lot of creeps on this site. I want my account gone.
I did made payment last week it is now more than 7 days and my subscription is still not active how will this take? Zoosk com and associated websites and Zoosk, Inc.

If you have or do it, it will be considered a violation my privacy and will be subject to legal ramifications. I have tried to ring zoosk. I think my number has been blocked. I will be trying again if I still cant get through. Trust me I will be blasting it all over Facebook and twitter. You have no rights to treat people this way.
I take its because of my comments. EG I get some one wants to meet me this has happened twice. I click on the tab thinking that will take me to the person.
But no it just gives me a load of faces. I then expect it will be in by emails but again no. I have no idea what game you are playing.
But trust me I am not impressed. In fact I am very angry. Why should you be allowed to do this to people. Its certainly not right. I cant get help right now to get back on the zoosk dating site and Iam a paid member!! I tried to change my password as had it a long time and wanted new one well its not responding to the new or old one and its wkend when theres no help!!!!!! Even rang the customer service line, but got no help there, had to leave a message. I need to cancel my subscription.
Please reimburse me immediately. I did not have an option to confirm. I use my emaill address on other website, but could not use this email address on this website. It is so strange. They have agreed to reimburse my NSF the I told them that their mistake should not be mine and I was sorry I had went with this dating site. I asked if I could talk to the manager and they said this was their policy. I am sorry for doing business with them.
They may have screwed you also. Please remove the notifications from my fb acct. I have been trying to get my profile down due to the fact someone stole my picture and are using it for a match.
Please advise how I can remove my profile from sites that I have never subscribed to. I have problems to activate my account.. I have a Capitec saving account — if I want to do my payment with my debietcard..
It show my card had expire or something is wrong… My code and my expiring date is Why can I do not use my card.. If I do a bank transfer how long do it take to active my account. Please because I cannot answer my messages. I receive a message to say Tom Dick or Harry sent a message I try to retrieve it and up comes on the screen it wants me to send a message!!! I understand that you will not debit my credit card at all, as I am now not a member.
I see that you have charged my credit card, now I demand you to reverse these charges. I except to see this credit within 5 working days, as I am a pensioner I can not afford to have you take this money from my account.
I cancled after my first payment so why have u robbed my money from my account I want it back now or in sewing. Gymriz is a user on zoosk that is harrasing me and my mom calling us names and saying very negitive things and very immature he needs to be kicked off no one needs to deal with that.
So far I think you are just out to take advantage of seniors!!!!! But it does not go thru. To plse guide me tthru steps. And very expensive for nothing. So, I find that they already took my money when they closed, the day before my subscription is due to renew. I will fight this!! I have been on and off this site for a few years now I want to know why I have been blocked from this site? Upon trying to log into my account my username is LikeFineWine is received a message that my account had been disabled by a Zoosk administrator.
I also received the email below. My account has been hacked! I contacted google and found out that someone from Ghana reset my ggole password and accessed my email account. I have since created several layers of verification to avoid this happening again. I contacted Zoosk customer service but have yet to receive a response. I would still like to be able to use my username LikeFineWine and create a new account.
To help your new photo go live…. In my search I had selected max 20 or 30 miles. The carousel with men living over 50 miles is wasting mine and their time. Any chance of applying the filter? It has been impossible for 4 days to get any responce from Zoosk. I am locked out and have been a paying customer for 3 years now. Noo one has even responded for 4 days, I have been locked out and I am pre paid for a year and no way to get into this system anymore.
I would like to remove my information from the Zoosk SA site and ensure that no further money is debited for this service. For some reason I am unable to access the site. Please could you help me with this? Dear Zoosk, while I am quite impressed with your dating site! Dear Zoosk I am unable to find a zoosk program that works with windows I also know that zoosk has had a few problems over the past year I would love to rejoin but until You have a program that I can use on the laptop I regret that I will not.
I also dont have a clue as to how to use the app on the phone so I will not be using that either I did find someone on zoosk but they passed away something that happens to old people. If you have any answers regarding windows 10 and Mcaffee then please reply best wishes john kimber. Just read 10 or so of the above comments I dont think I will bother zoosk seems to have changed quite a lot in two years. I want to join your date side but no one answered me please help need speak or I try somewhere else thanks.
Need to ask a question. Because to date I have winked at many ladies and had nobody reply showing interest, so I am probably wasting my time. From your experience what kind of honest answer can you give. Zoosk gonna block me after i paid for three months i demand a refund i font need a bunch of atheists.
I find such sites to be inciomprehensuiible and therefore uselesss. I resent finding a possibility and being unabole to follow it up without paying yet more money. Hi I am enjoying your dating site and would like to join But I do not have a Facebook or twitter account So I am finding it extremely difficult to download any photos from my mobile reguatds. Hi, i signed up for an account and then i subscribed. After doing that i try to message people but the response i get is i have reached my daily limit.
But if i look at the number of contacts i have made it is just less so i am wondering why i get this message. Someone is using a photo of me as their online dating profile picture. I will be taking further legal action if this profile is not taken down immediately! I only send one message and its says i have reached my daily limit i would like to know why is that.
Can you please change my Country to Germany? Apparently, in Zoosk only the administrator can do this. Please help me change countries. Got me too the bloody mongrels. Only way you can stop it is cancel your credit card and order a new one so they no longer have your details.
Feeling totally disadvantaged as I cannot afford to subscribe! I might actually be missing out on meeting someone genuine due to this. Hi I deactivated my zoosk account 6mths ago and im still popping up on the website would you be able to check to see why this would occur.
I called the company a week ago and told them I was charged for 6 months and I only wanted 1 month…I never received my refund. Way back in March I was given a special price on my monthly subscription to Zoosk. I would like to know why you are charging me more than we agreed on. That is not good PR! I am not so satisfied with this. Ever time I click on something it tells me to upload a new picture to continue. I wish to cancel by subscription with Zoosk. I am very unhappy with the choice I have to choose from.
I got to the end of the 6 month period and found I had been debited for a further 6 months. He sticks out his rather prominent chin, flares his nostrils, pins back his ears and you've had it. The bull seldom rushes forward to stomp on your toes. He simply wants to be left alone. Don't disturb him and he'll remain contented. Press him and he becomes obstinate. Shove too hard, tease too much, and be prepared for violent rage.
He can go for months and years on end. Then some unexpected day, a pushy person will pile one straw too many on his broad back. He'll snort, begin to paw the earth, narrow his eyes-and charge. Get out of the way as fast as you can and run for your lifel The Taurean temper is seldom displayed impulsively, but when the bull gets mad, he can destroy everything in his path, up to and including Scorpios.
Destroy is not the right word. It may be some time before the dust settles and peace reigns again. Some Taureana have such control that they only charge once or twice in.
Even the quick-tempered ones won't erupt more than once or twice a year, if that often. Still, it's best to remember that Taurus usually doesn't get just a little mad or annoyed. If the incident is large enough to rock his normally placid emotions, you can count on blind fury, no ordinary anger. I know one Taurus male whose wife had never seen him angry during all the years of her marriage, until one night in a crowded supper club.
An obnoxious drunk stumbled over to their table and made an off-color remark. She expected her husband to handle the man firmly, with his usual self-control, and she was as shocked as the rest of the customers when the Taurean suddenly stood up, shoved over two tables, lifted the man in the air, and sent him flying to the other side of the room, nearly demolishing the bandstand. Not a word was exchanged. I trust this will make you properly cautious. Before even winking at a strange woman, it would be wise to know her escort's birthday.
You can expect many May people to actually resemble a bull, the men that is, and the women born under the Sun sign will have an intangible, elusive bovine quality about them. The look in the female Taurean's eyes will be serene and limpid, yet steady. She will move gracefully, indolently, but with a suggestion of hidden strength. As for the males, the neck will often be thick or muscular, the shoulders, chest or back, or all three, broad and strong.
The entire body will be well proportioned, whether short or tall. The ears are usually small and close to the head. When they eat, they chew slowly, and ordinarily have excellent digestions.
You may notice a lock of hair resembling the bull's forelock , or a curl that hangs in the center of the forehead. Not all, but many Taureans have curly or wavy hair.
It's usually dark, like the eyes and skin. Even the occasional blonde, light-eyed and fair-skinned Taurus people will never suggest fragility of mind or character. Naturally, you can't expect every Taurean to look like Ferdinand the bull or Elsie the cow.
It's true that they frequently have large, generous bodies, ranging from muscular to plump to fat. But if you get that image too set in your mind, you won't. Don't let it throw you. The other planetary influences in his chart can't change that. Just ask his friend, choreographer Hermes Pan, or anyone else close to the dancing legend. Ask them how tough it is to get this Twinkletoes to go somewhere he doesn't want to go or do something he doesn't want to do.
Bing Crosby is also famous for his unruffled personality and his calm, easygoing manner. That was probably one of Bing's sons on the tramp steamer. As for Gary Cooper, take another look at the tall, lanky frame of that hero of the vintage cowboy shows. His solid feet seem to be growing right out of the ground as if they were rooted there. He moves across your television screen with slow deliberation, and the total number of complete sentences the actor speaks in those old westerns is roughly under a dozen.
Following the venerable Hollywood system of type casting, Gary Cooper always superbly played Gary Cooper. And like many another Taurean you'll meet away from stage and camera, the Cooper love scenes feature a romantic girl, who cries, "I love you madly, passionately.
I can't live without you. You're my whole life, darling. Tell me you care. Say you feel the same way. Do you love me? Taurus is strongly attracted to the opposite sex, but aggressive pursuit of any kind of pleasure isn't in his bag of tricks. He prefers to attract people to him. Why should he waste his energy chasing them over the countryside?
A short trip to a farm and some astute observation of the laws of nature will make it clear how the Taurean emotions are activated in both love and friendship. Passivity is the typical behavior. Taureans would rather entertain hospitably at home than go to the trouble of visiting. The effort required for scintillating popularity doesn't appeal to the bull's nature. If you want him, you can call him. Throw out the line of comradeship or romance, and hell pick it up, if it interests him.
He'll know what ' to do with it, too, which isn't always true of the more gregarious signs. Taurus seldom worries, frets or chews his nails. He can pout and brood when things don't suit his fancy, but he's not the nervous, twitchy type.
It's his nature to be stoic, and take things in his stride, and nothing really alters this basic tendency. I know a Taurean, who is both an attorney and a certified public accountant, a double career that would give anyone plenty to take in stride, especially at tax time. Now, this Taurus may bite his nails a little. All right, he bites them a lot.
He talks faster than I do which is pretty fast , and he does have a couple of worry creases in his forehead. But there's a heavy Gemini influence in his natal chart that causes the deceptive speed, and if you look behind the whirling action of his dynamic outer image, you'll still discover a Taurus. His brain may calculate like lightning, but his derisions are made slowly and carefully. His actions are predictable, his character is strong, and you can ask his wife just how much of a pushover he is when she tries to get him to dress up and go somewhere on the nights he'd rather stay home.
He'll listen patiently and pleasantly, but the papers don't get signed until the bull makes up his mind it's the right move. Oh, yes, he's a Taurus, never mind the Gemini wit and agility.
Flighty action is not among his vices. He rushes slowly, and that's not a non sequitur. Taurus people are home folks. There's scarcely a bull who doesn't love to luxuriate under his own roof and stretch out amid comfortable, familiar surroundings.
Change upsets him unless there's a Gemini, Sagittarius or Aquarius Moon or ascendant. If the Taurus you know doesn't own his own home, he's dreaming about it, and he will someday. He's close to the earth, and the love of the land will come to him eventually, one way or another. If he's forced to live in a crowded apartment building, hell probably have a window box full of geraniums or petunias. When the noisy clatter of the city threatens to press in too close, hell determinedly grab his fishing pole and head for a quiet, pastoral spot.
Let the world spin at too dizzy a pace for him, and Taurus simply gets off for a spell until it slows down. If he has no fishing pole or window box outlet, he may dabble in real estate, and make arrange-ments for other people's mortgages, which gets him out to the suburbs occasionally.
There's always a connection with the land, however remote, like hanging around the race track, or taking his Sunday stroll through the park and drinking in the sights and fragrances of nature. The average bull is superbly healthy, with a strong constitution. It takes a lot to put him on his back, but once he's down, he may recuperate slowly, partially due to his stubborn refusal to obey the doctor.
His natural inclinar tion to distrust optimism doesn't promote speedy recovery, either. The sensitive areas for accident and infection are the throat, neck, legs, ankles, reproductive organs, the back and the spinal area. Colds often turn into sore throats, and overweight brought on by the legendary Taurean love of food and drink, mostly food, can put a strain on the heart, and plague the bull with poor circulation, weak ankles, varicose veins and other chronic complaints.
Gout is another possibility. Most May people, however, can easily stay healthier than the rest of us if they avoid obesity, lethargy and kidney infections. If the butt drinks to excess or gets fat and lazy, he'll lose his splendid physique and his robust good health.
One of the main causes for his illnesses is a lack of country air and exercise. His system always needs it, even though his obstinate will may deny it. Speaking of obstinacy, there's no use telling a Taurean He or she is obstinate.
In the bull's mind, he's not stubborn at all. It's a matter of semantics. He's not hardheaded-he's just sensible and firm. For the life of him, he can't see why people judge him so unfairly. The truth is that Taurus is as stubborn as a human can be and not actually turn into solid stone. Taurean men and women seem to be glued to both their seats and their opinions.
A Taurus husband will refuse to accompany his wife to a friend's house if there are no comfortable chairs there for him to sit in. She can plead in vain. He just won't go. A Taurus woman who doesn't approve of her husband's cronies simply.
Still, the bulls can also claim the virtue of patience with justification. Many a Taurean bears emotional and physical burdens in silence for years without complaint. The higher the troubles pile up, the more strength Taurus finds to bear them.
His loyalty and devotion to family and friends often surpass all understanding. Lots of Taurus men and women deserve gold medals for courage under blows of fate that would have long ago broken the back of those born under other Sun signs. I'll go along with awarding a blue ribbon in recognition of the Taurus fortitude. But he's still stubborn. There's very little that turns his appetite faint. The bull can usually eat anything from fried peppers to chocolate whipped cream cake, sour pickles and turnips-all at the same meal-without a trace of indigestion.
Steak and beef-are usually his favorites, and he loves to clean up the leftovers. If alcohol is added, the Taurean can closely. Of course, a Virgo ascendant can keep him on raw carrots and lettuce, washed down with prune juice. The Taureans' funny bones are tickled by broad and slapstick comedy. Many of them fail to catch subtle satire, but they'll howl when someone slips on a banana peel or gets a custard pie in the face.
Taurus humor is warm and earthy, playful and reminiscent of Falstaff. These people are seldom, if ever, really cruel or vindictive. It's a strange fact that cruel Taureans often have many planets in Aries at birth. The two signs don't seem to mix well in the same horoscopes. Hitler is a good example. Now, about the subject of money-the bull and his money are seldom parted. Not every Taurean is a millionaire, but you won't find many of them standing in line for free soup.
Taurus likes to build empires slowly and surely. He starts with a solid foundation, then gradually adds a story at a time, until he's built a stable business and a bank account with muscles. Oddly, Taurus likes to accumulate power, along with cash, but simply for the sensual enjoyment of possessing it. They often turn over the action to subordinates. Just knowing the power is there along with the dollars seems to satisfy the Taurean need for security.
Why should he be bothered with the effort of manipulating all the strings? There are Capricorns and Cancerians around to do that, while he snoozes, smells a daisy or eyes the pretty girls. It's enough that everybody knows who owns the pasture. Sooner or later, money will come to Taurus, and it usually sticks like glue when it does. The bull prizes his cash and his possessions as he does his family, but he's not stingy. The Taurean generous heart and pockets are wide open to real friends in real trouble.
He's impressed by bigness. The larger a building, the grander it is to him, and he'll walk right past the monkeys at the zoo to stare in fascination at the powerful elephants. Taurus will face huge animals with magnificent courage, but he fears a mouse. A tiger on the loose won't cause the bull to flicker an eyelash, while a tiny wasp can send him climbing up the nearest tree in nervous panic.
Fine paintings and great symphonies stir him deeply. Every Taurean owns some evidence of the Venus love for art and music, if it's only an old Caruso record, or a. Many Taurus men and women have beautiful voices. Some of them sing professionally; others warble in the bath, soak in rich oils and dream of gilt-edged security. Music will always touch their lives in some way, and drawing or painting are often either hobbies or careers. The sensuous bull is tranquilized by the color of the sky.
Shades of blue bathe his emotions with peace; also rose and pink, in a lesser way, but never red, as any matador could tell you. The greens and browns of nature calm and soothe him too. Green paper money and a brownstone house will keep him perfectly contented.
Although Taurean ideas are always sensible, they can also sparkle with the clarity and depth of fifteen precious sapphires that add up to six kinds of good fortune, as he doubles his money under the benign smile of the gods.
There's nothing small about Taurus, including his capacity for lasting love and his potential for wealth. Copper, the Taurean metal, is an excellent conductor of electricity and heat, and it glows with burnished beauty through years of use and wear.
Let the excitable ones scurry and squabble for first place. The bull's fixed nature needs no flaming torches to light the way to the security he seeks. Eventually success will come to him, and he will be ready. Because the far-off Venus showers him with the love of luxury, he pays dearly for his possessions and treasures them for a lifetime; yet he's the sworn enemy of waste and extravagance. His home is his castle-and let no man disturb the peace of the bull. Taurus is as patient as time itself, as deep as the forest, with a dependable strength that can move mountains.
Hearst Audrey Hepburn Hitler. Only you'd better not come very close I generally hit everything I can see- when I get really excited. Perhaps you picture the typical Taurus man as a quiet, practical soul, as sensible and down-to-earth as an old pair of shoes.
You may also observe that he's slow to move to action, deliberate and careful. Therefore, you deduce, it's only logical to assume he's not very romantic.
Where did you get the idea you can analyze the Taurean nature by using pure logic alone? Probably from some Libra fellow who's trying to make an impression on you. Logic isn't very helpful when you're trying to solve the riddle of a strong, masculine symbol like the bull, who's ruled by a loving, peaceful planet like Venus. Send that Libra man with his clever mind back to the library.
The buU may take a long time deciding if he wants you for his woman. He's not going to execute a flashy swan dive into the pool of romance and discover on the way down that someone forgot to fill it with water. But once he's made up his mind that you're the one, and once he sets his mind on winning you, he'll make the Libra lover look like a fumbler. He'll even put the smitten lion and the passionate Scorpio to shame. That sensible, practical, slow, determined Taurus male is capable of sending you one pink rose each day until you surrender to his proposal-of marriage-or whatever.
He can even write a poetic song or verse, and bashfully mail it to you without signing it, knowing you'll guess the sender. Taurus can be a tender, gentle and protective lover. His sensual nature will make him vulnerable to your exotic perfume, the smoothness of your skin and softness of your hair.
He may not say so in flowery language to your face, but he will find a way to convey the message. The Taurus sense of touch is a tangible thing. This negative, fixed earth sign is full of contradictions in love. A Taurean will like to see you dress in luxurious furs and rich colors. He may buy you a fragrant bunch of fresh, spring violets for your furs from the little old lady on the corner, and leave a large tip in her basket because she reminds him of his mother. You, however, will definitely not remind him of either his mother or his sister -except when it comes to protecting you from the rude glances of other bulls who try to move in.
Music will stir his emotions and put him in the mood for love. He's almost sure to have a favorite song that reminds him of you each time he hears it. It's the one he keeps playing on the juke box. If you need more proof of the romance in his soul, the typical Taurus man will help. He'll suggest moonlight swims, picnics in cool, secluded woods, and walks down country lanes under the stars.
His will be the largest, fanciest, most eloquent Valentine the postman ever delivered on February 14th. When a Taurus man courts you, he courts you.
He doesn't fool around. You'll probably be taken to dine in glamorous restaurants, with soft lights and violins, and he'll never forget the date you first met or any other intimate anni-versary between you. For the love of buttercups, how much romance do you need? It's perfectly true that the bull isn't a wild dreamer like the Aquarian male. Taurus will never sweep you off your feet like a Leo, or promise to take you floating away to live with him in a fairy castle, drifting on pink clouds forever and a day, like an Aries.
He's more likely to drop by on foot some Saturday night, with the architect's blueprints for the house he plans to build for you, out of real lumber and with real cash. He'll probably make the down payment on the property, or at the very least, on the apart" ment lease, before you become engaged. This man means business. When the bull lifts you across his threshold and plants you firmly in his substantial home, which won't bear the faintest resemblance to a fairy castle, you can be sure the mortgage is secure at the bank.
That's hardly something to complain about. You'll wonder why you ever wanted to be wrapped in those pink clouds, once you've been warmly and snugly enfolded in the soft Taurean blanket of security. You'll be too busy enjoying your new furniture and checking account or the certainty that they're just around the corner to weep for misty dreams that probably wouldn't have come true anyway. That is, if you're a female who appreciates solid value.
Not every woman does, more's the pity. But sensible girls, from eighteen to eighty, value the peaceful, easygoing ways of the bull and his calm, stable nature. His sentimental gestures and pleasantly earthy wooing can be just as satisfying as the soulful, poetic sighs of more colorful lovers, or the dashing excitement of the flashier Don Juans, quite often even more so. Ask any woman who's been sensible enough to get herself good and loved by a strong Taurean. There are lots of contented cows and happy heifers around.
A Taurus man plans for tomorrow carefully. As the squirrel stores his nuts when they're plentiful in the summer, to provide security for the cold, barren winter-the temporary pleasures of a bright afternoon will never distract Taurus from preparing for the days when the slush piles up at the curb.
Naturally, there are drawbacks to a romantic escapade with a Taurus male-all is not peaches and perfection. For one thing, youll have to brush up on your ladylike behavior.
No Taurus man is going to put up with a loud, masculine female who cracks a whip like an animal trainer. If you have any forceful opinions, don't shove them down his throat or brag about your brainpower in public. Privately, he respects a female with intelligence though he places a higher premium on plain common sense , but you'd just better let him be the bright one of the team when you're out.
Make like the emancipated woman in front of his friends and he'll have one of two reactions. If he's a primitive Taurean and you'd be surprised how many of those there are , he's likely to give you a shove and a shaking, maybe even a good smack in the right place when you get. If he's a more sophisticated type, he'll simply clam up on you in front of everyone and sit there like a large chunk of cold stone, refusing to speak a word the rest of the night, until you're so embarrassed you wish the floor would swallow you.
Your friends will be most uncomfortable, too. It can really dampen an evening, not to mention cramp your style. Your first impulse will be to try to undo the damage, but trying to jolly him out of his stubborn mood before it's run its course is literally impossible.
It's like trying to move the Rock of Gibraltar. As a matter of fact, if you attempt to tease him back into normal social behavior, you may wish you had just let him sulk. A hunk of cold stone is infinitely more acceptable than his reaction to your coaxing after you've angered him. Push him too far and he'll turn from a silent sphinx into a bellowing bull, who may very well let loose some mighty earthy language, which will cause your cheeks to flame even pinker. Either that, or he'll say calmly to the group, "Excuse me for breaking up the party, but I have to drag this woman with the tent flap mouth home and teach her a few lessons.
Everyone knows Utterbach takes bribes. With his record he couldn't get elected chairman of the Boy Scout cookie sale, let alone Congressman. You don't know what you're talking about," at which point he'll dig in those heels, fold his arms across that beefy chest, and begin to pout-or clobber you- whichever. If you see him reach for his coat, you might as well put on yours, too.
A Taurus man will seldom leave his woman alone with the wolves, unprotected, no matter how angry she's made him. He'll take her along, by the hair, if necessary. So don't get any ideas of staying behind to get sympathy from the others. When he leaves, you leave.
And I would strongly advise you to apologize before you get home. Running to Mama's arms won't do any good. You share his bed and board, as long as he pays the rent. Mother-in-law interference is about the last thing the typical bull will stand for.
The first time you try that "running home to Mother" routine will probably be the last. After they once experience his fury, your parents wll prefer to keep the door locked and let you handle your own problems. I know a Taurus man with an aggressive wife who found aunique solution. He simply refuses to go out with her in piblic. Her irresistible force met an immovable object- tm.
She can go out and rob other men of their mas-cilinity all she wants, not Taurus, the bull. He's very fond o: This particular Tiurean has refused to accompany her ever since the time tby joined several other couples for. His wife grabbed the menu from him and ordered fa- the whole group. She made unflattering remarks about hi haircut and his tie during the first course, and supplied tb punch line to three of his jokes during the entree.
IS w she goes to social functions alone, while her Taurus nate refuses to budge from his castle. You can't really bkme the bull. He's just being true to his Sun sign.
It's sfll a solid marriage, but you may not be so lucky. So An't tempt your Taurean by shoving him around. He's extremely patient, but he won't wear a ring in his n'se. He doesn't necessarily want a clinging vine, either. H's too practical, and he likes his freedom too much to eijoy a female who sticks to him like rubber cement and cies at the drop of a hanky.
He doesn't mind a woman wth some fire and spunk. It intrigues him and balances hs own steadier maturity. With a smile of detached amuse-nsnt, he'll watch her cheerfully scampering around in tpical feminine fashion, as one would watch a beloved, petty kitten playing with a brightly colored ball of yam.
Jst so kitty knows when the bull gives a strong tug on tb yarn, it's time to stop the fun and games and listen to tb voice of her master. No one can be kinder, more gentle aid truly tolerant than a Taurus man, when his mas-clinity is secure.
Tiurus may sometimes behave like a clumsy circus bear, aid his humor is often rough and ridiculous. But he will n. The bull enjoys shopping around and he'll seldom rush pill mell into a serious courtship.
The puzzled girl he's been taking to the movies every Saturday night for a year may wonder if he's ever going to catch fire. It takes time for him to work up enough steam in the boiler to get the engine going at full speed, but once he's set his sights on a particular female, he can't be sidetracked. He may even forget to be sensible and cautious. The typical Taurus man is blind to any warnings of incompatibility when he's been pierced by Cupid's arrow. The more his friends point out possible stumbling blocks, the more obstinate he gets, and you know how obstinate that can be.
Consequently, the Taurean frequently makes the mistake of getting tangled up with fire and air signs, when he's better off with earth and water, in most cases. Sometimes, it works out beneficially. Opposites can attract, and stay attracted. But when it doesn't, Taurus will take a long time to get over the scars of a divorce before he's ready to settle down again with a wife who more closely matches his own disposition and outlook. The financial picture with a Taurus man is usually excellent.
Paint it pink and rosy. Few Taureans will fail to accumulate at least security, if not wealth. Some of them play the game of Monopoly with real money.
Both real estate and cash are easily conquered by the bull. He probably loves the country, football, fishing and camping. If none of these, he likes flowers, gardening or long walks. He prefers to read books about the dashing heroes of olden days or the biographies of empire builders, rather than sophisticated fiction or deep philosophy.
Most Taurus males subscribe to several men's magazines, some earthy and practical, others featuring glossy pages of feminine. He's the ultimate in a man's man, so don't ever serve him those dainty tea sandwiches with the crusts sliced off. He likes good, old-fashioned home cooking, with. Get yourself a good cookbook. He'll also be willing to take you out to dine frequently.
Typical Taureans don't expect their wives to be kitchen slaves. But he may mess up your pots and pans when he plays Sunday chef and expects you to play bus boy. As a parent, he's a perfect delight.
He'll think it's important to have a son to carry on the family name, but hell love the little girls with special tenderness. Taurus men make loving, affectionate, warm and sympathetic fathers. He'll set high standards for the children and expect them to respect property and possessions. The Taurean dad is patient. He won't mind if the children learn their lessons slowly, so long as they get them correctly.
His attitude is that young minds should be trained gradually toward maturity. You may find that he puts too much emphasis on material matters and showers them with expensive gifts that spoil them. But he'll also shower them with his time and devotion, and the firm hand of discipline will be there when it's needed. In general, life with father, if he was born in May, can be a warm experience, overflowing with love-except for those rare occasions when the bull charges in blind, furious anger, and the whole family has to hide behind the piano.
The typical Taurean husband is generous to a fault with his wife. He won't deny you nice clothes, perfume and baubles; attractive but practical furniture and a full pan-try. The bull seldom skimps on furnishings, clothing or food. Still, money won't bum any noticeable holes in his pockets unless there are impulsive financial aspects in his natal chart.
He loves luxury, but he's just as enamoured with value, and he'll make sure his cash buys more than a salesman's hot air. This man will work hard and need lots of rest. See that he gets it, because he can be quite a grumpy grouch when he's tired and out of sorts. Don't ever nag him or accuse him of being lazy. That's like waving a red flag in his face.
He lives life at his own leisurely pace, and he won't be rushed or pushed. His speedometer is set at one speed-deliberate. Attempts to make him spin merrily through a continual round of whirlwind social activity are doomed to failure. He will enjoy entertaining in his own home, but he'll prefer a few people of compatible interests to large crowds.
Invite old friends, or those who have serious goals and ambitions, and he'll behave pleasantly and hospitably. If you insist on cluttering his castle with emptyheaded, frivolous Go-Go types, he may just disappear from the scene-sometimes permanently.
Buy him one of those papa bear chairs that stretches out into a reclining position. No loud noises, blaring radios and TV sets, chaos and scattered toys, please. Keep your home full of music, beauty and peace. Remember that the trousers fit him better than they do you. Be his woman, and you couldn't ask for a better man. No one else will ever treat you with such gracious consideration. He really deserves to be respected for it.
Taurus love is simple, plain and honest. Taurus gives enduring loyalty and devotion, with a faithful heart. That adds up to emotional security. Com-bined with financial security and romance, there's little else to ask for. So all right, he's stubborn, but remember that stubbornness turned upside down is patience, and that's a rare virtue.
Get a nice, furry, fluffy blanket Taurus loves things that feel soft to the touch , tuck it around him when he's in his papa bear chair, and read him the stock market report. Be sure he gets his hot bath with scented oils and lots of fragrant soap. Serve him a big bowl of rich porridge. Then you're sure to have a strong, gentle man, who will protect you from all the storms.
Contentment is the word. Doesn't it have a cozy sound? Without, the frost-the blinding snow, The storm-wind's moody madness- Within, the firelight's ruddy glow, And childhood's nest of gladness. I remember a conversation I once had with a writer whose mother had been born in May. In discussing her parent's habits and character, the girl happened to mention that "Mother was a tall woman.
And I shall never forget what she said. Mother was shorter than I am. That was just soul talk. A Taurus female is a tall woman. Even if she measures under five feet, she can reach tall enough to meet almost any emergency life chooses to throw h?
In many ways, the Taurean female is the salt olthe earth, a combination of most of the sterling qual-itis every male looks for and seldom finds. Her candor and 'bsic honesty are undiluted with normal feminine tricks ay tears. The Taurean girl has more moral and emotional corage than many a tough male, but she has enough con-fi. It won't be long before y. There's enough self-control in the average Taurus wom-SFs make-up to hold back a team of horses a fair idea olthe force of her hidden will , if she chooses to exercise it.
Let's hope she does. It's a good thng, because her normally placid exterior conceals a sensual nature that could stand a little checking. Men always appreciate her gracious tendency to take Ptople as they are, without quibbling.
They're d'ing what comes naturally; they're not phonies and that's what counts with her. Her close friends may be weird Matures straight out of the world of Toulouse-Lautrec, 01 they may be Norman Rockwell paintings come to life. But they will be real people, not stuffed shirts or statues. When she runs across someone she dislikes, she doesn't start a big campaign to destroy him or challenge his ideals and motives.
She simply avoids him. The Taurus woman can show frigid indifference to her enemies, but if she counts you as a friend, she'll be loyal through all your ups and downs. Her determination to stick with you would make the relationship between Damon and Pythias look like a casual acquaintance. You can drive a Maxwell, climb a flag pole, get locked up in the pokey or wear daisies in your hair.
You are her friend, and somehow she'll justify your actions. There's just a small catch here. She'll doggedly expect you to return her blind allegiance and unswerving loyalty. If you don't give her your complete devotion in return, she can sulk in the comer like a gloomy, gray cloud of repressed resentment. This isn't the same thing as jealousy, however. The average Taurus woman will take the masculine hobby of girl watching in stride. Unlike the Aries or Leo woman, she won't turn scarlet with rage every time you openly admire a pretty girl.
It takes more than a casual flirtation or kissing a good female friend goodnight on the cheek to arouse her Taurean anger. If you go beyond the bounds of her idea of fair play, she can be a holy terror on wheels, but the line is drawn with generous strokes. She'll have to be really pressed to the wall in some way to explode in typical Taurus fury. You can go ahead and wink at that attractive cashier, but don't test her patience too far.
It does have a limit, boundless as it appears to be. If you've never seen her mad, leave well enough alone. These women aren't dominated by strictly mental goals. That's not meant to imply that the Taurus female isn't smart and clever. She can match brains with the brightest men and women, but she's not fiercely interested in figuring out the theory.
Multiple university degrees don't impress or thrill her. Just one is sufficient to gain her respect. Practical common sense and the ability to understand the fundamentals of any subject is, to her, essential. But the typical Taurean girl isn't an intellectual who reads the philosophers for kicks, and intricate ideologies are not her forte.
She's a solid, practical thinker, with no frills or showy mental gymnastics. Her feet are planted on terra firma, and there are definitely no wings attached to her solid heels. Taurus women are seldom restless-they keep their heads and thieir balance. The Taurean perspective remains normally straight and true, with no twists and turns or distortions though a Gemini Moon can put her in a bit of a whirl. She's strictly a physical creature. That will undoubtedly interest you, but to interest her, an object or an idea has to appeal to her finely tuned senses.
She doesn't want to hear that it's "good for her," that "everybody else is doing it," or that it will "stimulate her mentally. To respond with genuine excitement, she has to derive some sensual satisfaction from everything she does. Youll seldom see a Taurus woman stuffing a few artificial blooms in a vase. Her flowers must be real, and have am honest feel or fragrance.
She'll gather huge bunches off pussywillow and bittersweet in the spring and fall, and fflll the house with sturdy mums and dahlias in the summer. Her perfume will usually be exotic and lingering, though some Taurean women lean in the opposite direction, and pirefer the odor of squeaking clean hair and skin. Taurus girls will be visibly moved by freshly washed sheets saturated with the sweet smell of sunshine or the delicious aroma of bread baking in the oven.
She's spiritually aroused by the scent of the morning paper, the intoxicating odor of newly cut grass after a spring rain, burning wax candles or the smoke from a pile of smoldering anitumn leaves.
Unpleasant odors affect her just as drastically, in a reverse way. This is not a girl who will appreciate a pet skunk, even if he has been deodorized. Don't take her on a fish fry unless you take along a can of floral spray. It's the cooking odor that causes the problem. The fragrance of fish fresh out of the stream is different; that's natural.
The stables won't offend her delicate nostrils, either. You may have to make a careful list if you want to woo her with olfactory success. Colors send her senses soaring, too, the richer the better. Every shade of blue, from powder to indigo, will weaken her strong resistance.
So will rose and pink. Wear a blue tie and a shocking pink shirt when you visit her, but not at the same time. Remember, she also has a sense of harmony, and you don't want to look like a co-ed nursery. Her food must taste just right, and she'll usually sprinkle on the seasoning generously unless she has a Virgo or Capricorn ascendant.
Be sure to take her to places with the best chefs, because flat hamburgers and bland pea soup leave her. If you're lucky, she'll invite you for a home-cooked meal, and you may propose before dessert is served. When this girl ties on an apron, it's not just to make cinnamon toast. It's always a good idea to drop in on her with an empty stomach. A typical Taurus woman can cook her way right into your heart, and her kitchen is a real man trap.
Harmonious sounds and beautiful visual effects draw her like a magnet. Most Taurean women have a marked talent for, or an appreciation of music and art. Her doodles on the telephone pad are often very clever drawings.
Concerts and art exhibits are a good bet on dates, and Niagara Falls or the Grand Canyon are the best choices for a honeymoon. She'll be ecstatic at the sight of nature's grandeur.
If you can't afford Niagara, take her to an amusement park. She'll probably love to ride on a ferns wheel, feel the sharp wind across her cheeks, watch the colored lights and listen to the calliope music. The roller coaster will appeal more to her Aries and Gemini sisters. It's a rare Taurus girl who has never been on a farm nor hiked in the country-who doesn't love horseback riding and fishing. With all her sensuality, the Taurean female is a tomboy at heart.
The earth beckons her with a seductive call-and she responds by throwing her arms around Mother Nature in honest rapture. If you want her to throw her arms around you in honest rapture, be sure you don't play raucous music on your record machine, eat garlic without gargling or wear clashing colors. Finally, there's the sense of touch. Taurus women are the ones who complain that your sweater is "scratchy.
The materials she wears will be soft and luxurious to the touch, never irritating, and she'll probably dress with simplicity and taste. Her sensuous nature may not stretch to include fussy lingerie and dainty clothing barring a Pisces or Leo ascendant or Moon.
She prefers sportswear and plain, expensive outfits with no excess trimmings, and she dresses mostly for comfort; her practical nature taking over in the costume department. If she happens to have a heavy Aquarian influence in her chart, she can go a little cuckoo in stores on occasion, but even then her offbeat selections will serve a utilitarian purpose.
As you get to know her better, you'll realize that this girl can be a tower of strength. She's seldom demanding, except in the area of loyalty, and her disposition is gen-erally even, down-to-earth and pleasant. People love her straightforward, easy-going manner-it's as relaxing as a warm bath.
She's probably fond of warm baths herself, with lots of lotions and oils and bubbles. Taurean bathrooms often look like Cleopatra's private quarters. You keep expecting to see a slave appear and start waving a palm leaf fan.
You might have to find out the hard way that a Taurus woman doesn't like to be contradicted, especially in public, but why do that, when you can learn the easy way by understanding her Sun sign? Remember that she likes to do things slowly. If you hurry her or rush her, she'll become angry, and it isn't wise to make a Taurean female angry.
Her tempo ranges from slow to deliberate and steady; it seldom raises. Motherhood becomes her nicely. It blends smoothly with her serene disposition and matches her bovine nature beautifully.
She'll cuddle little babies and adore toddlers, but as the youngsters grow older, she may be too strict and demanding. There's an unbending, stubborn streak in Taurean females that makes it hard for them to accept easily the multiple and confusing changes of adolescence. The Taurus mother becomes angry when her discipline is thwarted. She won't stand for disobedience or defiance.
All the fury of the bull is aroused. She'll also find it difficult to tolerate laziness or sloppiness, and the children will probably keep their rooms neat-or else. The Taurean love of beauty and harmony prevents calm acceptance of untidy habits. Messy youngsters and sloppy surroundings can make her see red. Outside of these few failings, she'll probably be a good parent, more of a friend to her children than a mother image as the years pass.
Most offspring of a May-born woman remember her 'as a warm, maternal image in the early years and a pal with a sense of humor in their later years. The inbetween years-when youthful impatience clashes with the bull's , firm determination-may leave a few unpleasant memories.
She'll fiercely and loyally defend them from outside hurts and teach them to imitate her own honest courage. Taurus females are never sissies. They seldom whine or complain. This is a woman who will quietly take a job to support a husband in medical school or work at home if there's a temporary financial crisis in the family. She ' doesn't have a lazy bone in her body, despite her often I slow, deliberate movements and need for frequent rest periods.
Taurus females are hard workers. She'll walk proudly beside her man, and seldom try to pass him or stand in his shadow. Many a Taurean wife helps her husband with his studies, if he's taking special courses in a professional career, or types up the business correspondence he brings home from the office. She's an excellent helpmate in these areas. Taureans never expect to be supported without contributing their share, and they're miserable with a man who doesn't contribute his, though they'll try to make the best of it.
Taurus women dislike weakness in any form. Her impassivity to pain and emotional stress is almost: I remember a scene I once watched in a hospital.
A Taurus woman was going upstairs for serious surgery, so serious that her chances of surviving the operation were very small, and she knew it. It was a calculated risk. As her husband watched her being placed on the cart that would wheel her to the operating area, she noticed the tears in his eyes.
But she never commented. She made jokes instead, until the nurses giggled and even the doctor smiled. The last thing her family heard her say as the orderlies were pushing and pulling, trying to get the cart into the elevator, was typically Taurean. Instead of glancing back at her loved ones with a tearful look of farewell, she raised up on one elbow and spoke to the young men firmly. A man who marries a female born in May won't marry a cry baby or a gold digger.
She'll expect him to provide for her and manage the family finances sensibly. She'll also want the best quality when it comes to food and furnishings. But she'll always keep a sharp eye out for bargains, and be willing to wait for the luxuries she craves. Quick fortunes without a solid foundation don't appeal to her sense of stability. She'd rather see you build carefully for the future. Making a good impression is important to her, and lots of Taurean women encourage their husbands to aim for a secure future by inviting influential people to dinner.
A Taurus wife is the soul of hospitality. This is a girl who will stay up night after night with a sick child and pray him back to health with a rock-bound faith-the kind of woman who can tenderly replenish a man's store of hope when the world has defeated him, infusing him with her own brave, dauntless example. She's as dependable and predictable as a grandfather clock, as capable of patching a broken pipe or fixing a blown fuse as she is of baking a cherry pie or sewing on a missing button.
There's always room enough and love enough in her heart to welcome strangers and relatives to her hearth, and her house will warm you when you've just come in out of a storm. Like my friend said, a Taurus female is "a tall woman. If not, I'll stay down here. It may begin to be evident that your newborn baby is a Taurean when you try to dress him to take him home from the hospital.
Let go, like a good little baby. Let's get those arms in the sleeves. Did you hear me, Charlie? The nurse comes in. My, what a good baby. Wide awake, but he doesn't make a sound. The nurse approaches your little bull with professional efficiency. All right now, upsy daisy!
