This is how Taurus gets along with others, based only on their Sun signs. These are compatibility interpretations for all 12 possible combinations with Taurus.
Yes, this is a limited and incomplete way to determine compatibility. But, Sun-sign compatibility is still the base for overall harmony in a relationship. We explained this in one of our synastry lessons where we said that it’s best to start with compatible Sun-sign elements.
The rule of thumb is this: yin and yang do not see eye to eye. Yin goes with yin, and yang goes with yang. While relationships between yin and yang can succeed, they require more work. The earth and water zodiac signs are yin. The fire and air zodiac signs are yang.
Taurus and Aries
Taurus and Aries is a yin-yang partnership. It is possible for the sensuality of Taurus to join with the force of life of Aries if they both work to achieve that. They can complement each other in a good relationship, but they must learn to respect each other’s natural differences: Aries is impulsive, is a fighter, and is characterized by action. Taurus is concentrated and walks slowly but surely. With effort, this can succeed.
Taurus and Taurus
Taurus and Taurus is a relationship that can work, as long as they both keep in mind that neither one of them is conducive to action. Therefore, the risk in this relationship is that they get too comfortable staying at home so much that they end up disconnected from social life. They may even get bored as their preferred routine becomes a rut. This relationship will need movement.
Taurus and Gemini
Taurus and Gemini together make a difficult relationship in terms of understanding each other’s basic needs. They have very different natures. Gemini is expansion, movement, inconstancy and infidelity. Taurus is the opposite. They will collide again and again, but if love is really what unites them, they will be able to smooth things out and build a relationship with some stability.
Taurus and Cancer
A relationship between Taurus and Cancer can turn out to be excellent because they will support each other in valuable ways. Taurus will be in charge of sustaining Cancer in a material way. Cancer provides emotional support and inspires Taurus to continue working for their home. Cancer will also feel protected emotionally with the material security provided by Taurus.
Taurus and Leo
A relationship between Taurus and Leo will be difficult to carry out. Their natures are opposed to each other. However, they can come to complement each other by giving the relationship time and room to grow. They will have difficulty understanding each other. For example, Leo has social needs, Taurus has a need for introspection. Leo is opinionated and commanding, Taurus is accommodating.
Taurus and Virgo
Taurus and Virgo make an excellent relationship with enormous possibilities of becoming stable and solid. Taurus and Virgo are two earth signs that share many qualities. They have similar tastes: they both love the home, they love to plan projects, better themselves, cultivate their minds, analyze expenses and household demands, etc. Of course, they should be careful not to fall into a rut.
Taurus and Libra
A relationship between Taurus and Libra is not very advisable because both members will feel destabilized by the different qualities of the other. Taurus is firm, secure, solid ground; Libra is change, movement, constant doubt. Whenever Taurus needs certainty, there will be Libra giving doubt. Even so, it is worth trying if love is present.
Taurus and Scorpio
When Taurus and Scorpio come together, the passion, sensuality and eroticism will be extraordinarily wonderful. But in everyday life, certain situations can cause speed bumps for this relationship. Scorpio is too controlling. Taurus will not bear the emotional stings that Scorpio will surely give. For this relationship to work, Scorpio must respect Taurus as they are.
Taurus and Sagittarius
A relationship between Taurus and Sagittarius can be summed up in five words. Difficult, difficult and more difficult. Taurus and Sagittarius are very different in their needs. Perhaps when they are older and have matured in life, they may come to understand each other. But during their younger years, Taurus and Sagittarius will not figure out how to take the relationship forward and, at the same time, be able to feel comfortable with the other and their own lives. Sagittarius does not understand Taurus’s motto: “Slowly but surely.”
Taurus and Capricorn
Taurus and Capricorn are two earth signs that complement each other in an excellent way. They will enjoy this relationship greatly because they will do it the way they like it: taking it step by step, planning each movement, perfecting what works, rejoicing with a movie at home, and reaching the top triumphant. Everything is in their favor to build a stable relationship.
Taurus and Aquarius
A relationship between Taurus and Aquarius is one that can bear fruit with a lot of work and a huge dose of patience. Their natures collide with respect to the freedom and independence of Aquarius, as opposed to Taurus’s focus on home and relationship. But if each one yields a little, they may come to understand that there are times when each of them need to be alone, without implying that they stopped loving each other.
Taurus and Pisces
Although Taurus and Pisces are both yin, this is a difficult relationship to get off the ground. They must give of themselves a lot in order to understand their different natures. Taurus is primarily a material being, and its life is focused on the material. Pisces, on the other hand, is a spiritual being. Although Pisces also requires the material, its focus is on transcending it. If they learn to complement each other, they will both feel safe and protected.
Taurus in Love and Passion
After overcoming the initial difficulties, inevitable in any emotional relationship, Taurus drops their guard and immediately feels comfortable enough to give free rein to their sensuality.
They consider sexual activity a basic need, like eating or drinking. As lovers, they behave with spontaneity and generosity, and often show a surprising passion. Sexual dissatisfaction affects them more than other signs, and puts them in a very bad mood.
They love to dress up and dine in fancy restaurants. They spare no expense when it comes to having fun and only settle for the best. A partner of a Taurus can expect a life of style.
Faithful and trustworthy, they do not usually look for a paramour, because above all they aspire to maintain a stable relationship. They feel insecure if their partner does not give themself body and soul.
Taurus in Marriage
Marriage is a commitment Taurus takes very seriously. They want their relationship to be stable and long-lasting. Given their pragmatism, they plan things out well in advance. They usually decide to get married in church and have a big ceremony.
Over the years some Taurus men become a little possessive. They think their partner belongs to them, and some go to the extreme of controlling all their actions. When that happens, it’s best to stop them in their tracks.
Otherwise, a wife of Taurus has nothing to worry about. Her wishes are his command, and he is her loyal and attentive husband.
Taurus women provide their partners with constant and unconditional support. Sooner or later they end up forming a family, which does not prevent them from continuing to cultivate their many interests, some of which could become more than just a hobby. Those who marry a Taurus woman will enjoy the company of a loving and hardworking woman.
