In the world of astrology, Taurus is often known for luxuriating. In matters of love, sex, work and play, Taureans have exacting tastes and prefer comfort to labor — read: working smarter and not harder —when it comes to getting what they want.
After all, you spent all of Aries season coming into your power, so now it’s time to enjoy the fruits of your labor(s) and really just bask in them. That’s why, for our Taurus season zodiac sex tip, we’re encouraging you to embrace each other (literally) by embracing spooning.
(As we say every month, you can find out about your individual horoscope and birth chart information — particularly when it comes to love and sex— by looking at your own placements. Your Sun, Moon, Rising, Mars and Venus are a great place to start. We totally recommend doing a full reading with an astrologer at least once for the full experience and maximizing your star-powered knowledge. Getting your chart read by a pro and hearing their insights can be such a special experience and I can’t recommend it enough!)
If you want to know why we chose spooning for sexy Taurus vibes, that’s easy — it’s a tactile, highly intimate position (no social distancing when you’re mimicking cutlery) that is all about being nice and close to your partner, accessing all the things you love about them without having to do much heavy lifting or exert yourself too much. Perfect for sleepy mornings or lazy nights where you can take a little extra time together and pairs incredibly well with your coziest blankets, your favorite candles and whatever else you need to feel sensual and present in your body with your partner. Taurus season reminds us that all of those good things in our lives are meant to be enjoyed.

“Taurus is an old-fashioned type when it comes to love, a complex combo of toughness and sensitivity. To the outside world, you may appear completely composed, but inside, you’re a hopeless romantic looking for that ‘love of a lifetime,’” as the Astro Twins write about Taurus lovers. “Your needs are basic: you want a stable, loyal partner who’s affectionate and classy. Why, then, does it seem so hard to find? For one thing, Taurus hates change, and that’s why you don’t just throw yourself into relationships. Once you’re in, you’re in. Predictability may bore some, but for you, it simply provides a canvas on which you create a lovely twosome.”
A good spooning position has room for adjustments — trusting that Taurus-ability to know what feels good and elevate it. But you can totally shift how you hold one another to make room for power and softness, for quick and sweet thrusts or sustaining, long lasting romps (hello Taurean endurance!) and it’s all too easy to have your hands do some exploration of their own to keep things engaging all the way through. All the things that let you and your partner(s) feel amazing while also feeling close and intimate.
And, ultimately, it’s a solid, reliable move that allows you and your partner to get what you’re craving and really take the time to enjoy it and each other. What’s more Taurus than that?
