You’re probably aware of the idea that each Sign is ruled by one of the planets, and that the planet which rules a Sign tells us something about that Sign’s nature. Leo is ruled by The Sun, and Leos tend to be shiny and warm and outgoing, Mercury rules Gemini and Virgo, and as a result both those Signs are usually fairly quick-witted and sharp, and so on.

Taurus and Libra are both ruled by Venus. As a result, they can both be fairly romantic Signs, and fun to be in a relationship with. But Taurus and Libra can have very different approaches to romantic pursuits.  Taurus has a tendency to sit back ad let its charm bring mates their way, and Libra is a little more… shall we say “proactive” in these matters.
