The Taurus/♉Scorpio♏ Relationship Axis ☄
Ascendant/Descendant (1st house/7th house)
Knowing your partners 7th house cusp (the relationship house) and the ruler of that house will indicate the type of partner you may attract or are attracted to and the method of relating within a relationship.
The Ascendant, or Rising sign, is the sign rising on the horizon at the time of birth. This is the face we show the world, the “mask” for which our Sun hides behind. This is the outer personality, temperament and disposition as well as how we experienced our early home environment growing up. It is the way others see us and also provides indication of our physical appearance. The ruler of the Ascendant and the aspects (connections to other planets in your birth chart) further delineate and define your physical appearance.
The Descendant, or 7th house cusp, its ruler ,and the aspects it makes in the chart, symbolises the type of partner you are attracted to or who you may attract into your life. The 7th house is the house of all partnerships including marriage and legal contracts yet also considered the house of open enemies or the Defendant in a law suit.
Taurus’♉ ruling planet is feminineVenus. If you have a Taurus♉ Ascendant, you appear practical, sensual, and hardy and maintain a reliable and steadfast disposition. You prefer kissing and caressing, especially in the neck and throat area. Because you are a fixed, earth sign, it would be difficult to change your mind on any subject or idea. Yet once you set your sights on some one or something, your focus is unwavering! You desire loyalty and passion in your relationships. Jealousy and possessiveness are a tendency as well as a propensity for conceit and overindulgence.
With Mars/Pluto ruled Scorpio on the descendant, you seek a sexy, intense, sensual and passionate partner. Loyalty is a must. A superficial relationship would hold no appeal for this placement.
When you have the birth data of a potential partner, take a glance at their Mars♂ or Pluto♇ placement since these planets rule your Descendant. If your potential partner has these planets in ease with other planets, that energy will be brought into your relationship with this individual. One thing you just don’t know about any individual, even with birth data, is how emotionally and spiritually evolved that person is and how they have dealt with their past life challenges and relationships. The best method of understanding this is by speaking with the individual to see where they are in their life. Squares (tension) are absolutely necessary for growth as well as in relationships. Without them,the necessary work to advance take a back seat, and life stagnates and may be uneventful.
It is also possible for a Taurus♉ Ascendant person to attract a partner who has Venus♀ prominent in their chart. Prominent Venus would be in aspect to the Sun, Moon, Mars or Mercury or elevated in conjunction to the MC (10th house cusp) or IC (4th house cusp) conjunct or ruling their Ascendant or Descendant or Sun☉ sign in Virgo♍, Capricorn♑ and Cancer♋.
Knowing the date, time and place of birth is important in making the determination of the Ascendant or Rising sign, the sign rising on the horizon at the time of birth. This cusp sets up all the other house cusps. (the divisions of the houses or areas of life.)
