Whether you’re single or in a relationship at the start of the new year, you might find yourself wondering about your love life forecast in 2016. Will you find love? Get engaged? Finally stop fighting with your partner? Enjoy being single? Well, this might be your year. Bustle sat down with astrologist Susan Miller for our podcast The Chat Room to see what the universe has in store for us in the upcoming year. And there's some good news — Miller, the founder of AstrologyZone, says there's good luck coming for all zodiac signs in 2016. But when it comes to finding new love, who’s in the best position to do it in 2016?
“Taurus is really in the greatest position to find love,” Miller tells Bustle. “My Taurus friends say, ‘Oh yeah? Well, it’ll take a total eclipse of the sun for me to find love,' and actually they’re going to have that!”
According to Miller, there are three important eclipses this year for Taurus: March 8, September 1, September 16
All earth signs, including Virgo and Capricorn, and all water signs including Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio will feel the effects of the eclipses as well. As Miller says, they are the most notable points in the year to watch out for because, “eclipses are the most dramatic tool the universe uses to create change.”
When an eclipse is coming, Miller suggests to keep an open schedule in order to prep yourself for any unpredictable changes the universe decides to throw at you.
So, if you’re a Taurus, such as myself, the year might finally bring you the love you’ve been waiting for. When it comes to finding that love, looking for someone you're compatible with is a good place to start. If you’re a Taurus, these are the signs to keep an eye out for:
According to Miller’s AstrologyZone, “This is a heavenly mix, so if you are attracted to a Virgo, grab this lover and hold on tight!” Because both Taurus and Virgo are earth signs, they want plenty of the same things from a productive life to spending time on cultural activities. While Virgos tend to be worriers afraid of letting people down, Taurus people rarely worry about anything and will take the necessary actions to help their Virgos out.
Since Taurus is all about loyalty, they’ll greatly appreciate their Virgo loves because Virgos are all about fidelity and integrity. When it comes to sex, Taurus are known for being great in bed. Virgos, on the other hand, are a little more reserved at first, but with Taurus’s notorious patience, things will work out. Besides, Virgos are great communicators and that’s always a plus in the bedroom. Miller writes, “It couldn’t get any better than this!”
Capricorn is another earth sign, meaning the two signs have a built-in intuitive understanding. Both Capricorn and Taurus are hard workers with a determination to succeed. They are both great at finances, are reliable, and neither will purposely try to embarrass the other. Capricorns will bring a sense of humor to the more serious Taurus. Communication between the two signs will be very good, as they both love music and art.
According to Miller, they will both easily talk about their goals and dreams, and will have no trouble understanding each other. When it comes to sex, Taurus will take the lead and bring out the Capricorn’s hidden passionate nature. Both signs are commitment-oriented, and the pairing won’t result in the usual disappointments. All in all, “life together will be unusually harmonious.”
Pisces may be a water sign, but they’re also perfect matches for Taurus. According to Miller, the relationship between a Pisces and a Taurus will be a good mix of good, fun times and deep intimacy. In short, it’s a “rich, mature relationship.” Keep in mind, there are a lot of differences between the two. For one, Pisces aren’t really known for being realistic. Taurus, on the other hand, are all about practicality. Pisces, unlike Taurus, are not really materialistic. But since Taurus are so financially responsible, they’ll be able to help their Pisces partners in money matters. Furthermore, Pisces fall in love with much intensity, which Taurus values. According to AstrologyZone, when Taurus and Pisces get together in the bedroom, it’s complete love making. There’s tenderness, affection, and each action is pure and real. So, despite their differences, “this is a love that endures.”
“You’ve found your soulmate,” Miller writes in AstrologyZone. Both Taurus and Cancer want the same things out of life, from a good family and home to stability and security. Both signs are sensual. Time together will be “cuddly, close, and cozy warm.” Cancers are homebodies and are willing to show their love by cooking, which works just fine for Taurus, who love to eat. When it comes to money matters, Taurus will spend on luxury, while Cancer will spend time on the clearance rack. The mix of the two signs results in sex that's passionate and nurturing. It becomes a genuine expression of feelings. Overall, it’s a great match.
What About Incompatible Signs?
If you’re a Taurus and the person you’re interested in is a Gemini or a Libra or an Aries, don’t be alarmed. While there are obviously some signs that are more compatible than others, Miller says, “I think you can get along with any sign, though some of them might be a lot of work.”
Either way, good luck to all you Taurus people out there! Love is just around the corner. According to the stars anyway.
