Aries's symbol is associated with the head, and they’re known to dive head first in with passion and excitement in all aspects of their lives, including their relationships. This makes them passionate lovers who like to take the lead in relationships.
Aries give their relationships all the effort they have which helps them navigate conflict rather than avoid it when it arises. The sign is ruled by Mars, the dynamic red planet named after the Roman god of war. It strengthens this sign with the courage to go through the hard times. However, this bravery also comes with a temper when things don't go their way. The good news is that they don't tend to dwell. They forgive and forget easily in their fast pace moving through life.
Aries may be quick on their feet and even impulsive but they also have a natural inherited wisdom. They are cheerful, optimistic individuals who like to assume the best in all situations.

Taurus is the second of the 12 astrological signs, Aries' neighbor, and is represented by the bull constellation. Being an air sign, a Taurus naturally knows how to ground themselves. This means that Taurus can remain stable even when they're under stress. However, they have a specific lifestyle to cope with it. Taurus need consistency and routine in their everyday life because it gives them predictability and control. As long as they're within their comfort zone, they are able to handle everything that comes their way.
Taurus likes to follow the rules out of principle. Their values center around honesty and they care deeply about how their actions affect those around them. They're not the type to sugarcoat just to make you feel better. They are relied upon to say it exactly how it is. In fact, Taurus is stubborn and stuck in their ways.

Aries and Taurus Communication
Communication isn't Aries and Taurus's strong suit. They both express themselves differently According to Inbaal Honigman, celebrity psychic and astrologer, Aries fire may not always work with Earthy Taurus: "They don't really worry about the outcomes of their actions or about the victims of their words, they're committed to telling the truth in all circumstances," she says.
In contrast, she says that Taurus thinks ahead: “They are tactful and expect some tact from others as well,” Honigman says. Unless Aries and Taurus can find a middle ground between their opposite approaches to communication, Taurus will find Aries insensitive and Aries will feel turned off by Taurs' sensitivity.
The problem is that both of these signs are stubborn and unwilling to see each other's perspectives at first. When Aries are upset their temper is triggered and they will throw a tantrum.

An orgasm isn't the goal however for these two, it's more about how the experience of together feels like.
