Taurus and Aries:

Probably one of the most problematic pairings in the Zodiac, Aries and Taurus don’t have many differences but the ones they do have can be quite vital in the relationship. Aries in an incredibly independent sign, and likes to enjoy fun, light hearted relationships with the person they love whereas Taurus has a tendency to emotionally invest in a relationship with someone they really love.  Aries being a fiery, passionate sign can be very carefree with their relationships, often doing before thinking and this can really upset Taurus who tends to get quite jealous or possessive when they feel their relationship is threatened but this is only because they put so much thought and care into the relationship and they’ll be damned if something is going to mess it up. Taurus’ temper can match that of an Aries, sometimes even outdo it but as Aries’ let go of arguments as quickly as they arise, Taurus is one to hold onto that for a long time and can withdraw from their partner if trust and stability is broken. Aries love to win, and when they do they tend to rub their partners nose in it but when they lose, they pretend it never happened, this can anger Taurus since it’s not fair to them.

However with the right level of understanding, this pairing can create a comfortable yet exciting atmosphere. Taurus is the most passionate of the earth signs which appeals to Aries nature. Taurus is a very sensual sign, appreciating things like good food and massages regardless of how simple or it might be. They know just how to pamper Aries, which they enjoy as much an Aries does. They’re very good at handling Aries’ temper since they’re much slower to anger, it builds up over time, which is good for Aries because it means someone is keeping a firm grip and isn’t going to blow up back in their face right away. Aries can bring Taurus out of their comfort zone – for better or for worse- and should pay attention to Taurus’ limits if they want to avoid upsetting their partner greatly – Taurus’ need stability and nothing would break their heart more than their own partner to break it for them. This pairing needs a lot of work and a lot of communication, they need to learn to stay calm and patient but potentially this pairing could be very rewarding.

Taurus and Taurus:

As compatible as same sign pairings are, they all have their flaws, materialism and insensitivity are two big ones in this relationship. Taureans are very materialistic signs, the house and the car are a BIG part of commitment for them because it represents a comfortable, functional home, which is important to Taurus. Materialism can be good sometimes in that you end up with a nice home and a lot to show for it but the problem with it when in relationships is that, the flame can die out and at the end of the day, when asked “Why do you stay in the marriage if you’re not happy?” Taurus’ answer could be “Well there’s the house… and the car.” As for insensitivity, Taurus’ can be insensitive to one another which means emotional issues in the relationship could cause more disruption than they would in other pairings. What I’m trying to get across here is that Taurus’ determined, materialistic nature could lead to them seeing the relationship as more of a goal, something to be completed and by the time they realise that that’s not what relationships are about, their feelings for each other could’ve changed completely.

However this pairing is incredibly compatible despite the setbacks mentioned above! This is possibly the most secure pairing in the Zodiac. Both partners are very loyal and emotionally invested in the relationship. They have a mutual understanding on the importance of the relationship to each other meaning they’re more likely to make it work. Both signs have incredible patience which means fights are quite rare, they won’t fight about trivial things making the relationship a very peaceful one. Both partners are sensual and romantic, constantly pampering each other and making small romantic gestures. The reason this relationship is one of the safest is because both partners will tend to be quite dependent on each other and the chances of one of them getting cold feet and backing out is slim because they fall in love very carefully, making sure they’re certain of their love/attraction for this person. This pairing is one of the easiest if the two can manage to keep the creativity flowing and the flame glowing, this can be a lifelong love.

Taurus and Gemini:

Taurus and Gemini are generally not a very compatible pairing, mainly because Earth and Air signs don’t mix very well, but there are also characteristics exclusive to these signs as to why they’re not compatible. Taurus is quite a jealous lover, preferring to have their partner to themselves and getting quite upset if they feel their partner is straying whereas Gemini hates to be tied down by someone, they’re known as the sign who have trouble with staying faithful and this is a huge no-no for Taurus. Taurus’ safe and secure nature isn’t exciting or challenging enough for Gemini who is always full of new ideas and goals. Gemini always needs new things to keep them busy and Taurus might now be able to keep up, preferring the comfort of home and security. Gemini, being an impulsive liar can end up hurting and manipulating Taurus without noticing it, causing Taurus to build their wall and dig up their hatchet.

However, like with every pairing, this one has a lot of potential. Taurus has a love of the arts which can spark a real intellectual stimulation in Gemini which is what they really need, it might even bring out their creative side and encourage them to produce new ideas. You need quite a lot of patience to be able to put up with a Gemini, not particularly in a bad way, it’s just they’re constantly jumping from one thing to another. Luckily, Taurus has more than enough patience to tolerate this as long as Gemini is willing to meet some of their needs too. Both signs are insensitive to an extent so there’s mutual understanding when it comes to comforting and emotions etc. which can benefit especially Gemini. Taurus’ seem to lack imagination and creativity but when in partnership with Gemini, Taurus can be exposed to new ideas and may find interests they never knew they had. Both signs are quite humorous so a good friendship can make a good foundation. If Gemini can be careful with Taurus’ emotions and if Taurus allows Gemini to have their space, this pairing can work.

Taurus and Cancer:

This pairing is generally quite compatible but it’s not without its faults. Both signs are very possessive in their relationships. They don’t really mean to be, it’s just a defence mechanism more than anything, since both of these signs tend to root their emotional security in their relationships. Taurus’ possessive nature stems from their need for emotional stability and Cancers’ stems from deep seated insecurity. Because of this, there’s the possibility that the relationship could turn toxic, so they need to be cautious of that and make sure they don’t get too carried away and swept up in the relationship. Taurus’ can come off as insensitive which to sensitive Cancer can seem upsetting and hurtful, as if Taurus doesn’t care. Cancers are naturally very manipulative signs, they manipulate to keep themselves safe, sometimes without noticing. Taurus, who values loyalty and trust above all can feel cheated and betrayed if Cancer’s manipulative qualities shine through. This can cause Taurus to either lash out or shut down, either way holding resentment for Cancer, in turn hurting them.

However this pairing has been known to be quite successful due to the loyalty and nurture involved in the relationship. Both signs require and provide undying loyalty to each other which promises a strong, long lasting relationship. Both signs like to take care of each other in different ways, Taurus makes Cancer feel pampered and treated, while Cancer turns a house into a home which Taurus greatly appreciates. This pairing is the classic “settled couple” stereotype in that their relationship has solid foundations and can last a lifetime. Both signs are very involved and tuned in with one another since relationships are a big part of their lives. If Taurus can try to provide more empathy and sympathy, Cancer might be less inclined to let their manipulative side get the better of them.

Taurus and Leo:

Fire and Earth signs tend to be a tricky match and Taurus and Leo are no exception. Leo’s have a naturally flirty energy about them which Taurus can sometimes misunderstand as “flirting with other people”. This can annoy Leo since they don’t like other people to have a grip on them. Although Taurus’ enjoy equal partnership, they desire to be the breadwinner and “master of finance”, Leos however want absolute dominance because they prefer to be the centre of the relationship. This can lead to disagreements and although Taureans are patient signs, they’re also quite headstrong and when Leo challenges that with their own stubbornness, calmness will go out the window. Leo’s pride could end up getting wounded by Taurus’ possessiveness, as they need constant adoration of some form and if Taurus isn’t providing it, they’ll look for it somewhere else. In bad situations, this relationship could just deteriorate to a title.

As with any pairing, this one does have its upsides. Both signs are incredibly loyal to each other and nothing could prevent them from being faithful. Leos have a bright and exciting outlook on life, when Taurus is introduced to this perception, their love can become less heavy and dense. This way, the relationship is still loyal and trustworthy but not as heavy and daunting as earth sign’s love generally is. Taurus being an incredibly sensual sign, is excited by Leo’s passion for romance and sex. Leos are a sucker for those who can shamelessly proclaim their love for them and Taurus has absolutely no trouble doing so. Taurus loves to pamper and treat their lovers and Leo loves to receive that treatment. Another thing that ensures a long lasting between these two is that neither of them like change, if they have made a commitment with each other, it will take a lot for them to break it and create any inharmonious change.

Taurus and Virgo:

As compatible as earth signs are together they have their faults. Both signs are incredibly determined to make the relationship stable and long-lasting that without really noticing, the spark could go out and the relationship could go stale. Virgo, being the main perfectionist and neat freak of the zodiac, might unintentionally start nit-picking at Taurus which could irritate Taurus and maybe even hurt them a bit. If Taurus’ hidden rage and resentment becomes apparent to cool, passive aggressive Virgo, it can be incredibly repelling. As passive as Virgos are, they have a very sharp tongue and know just which words can make someone tick. If they use this against Taurus and cross any form of line, Taurus’ will hold onto it and never let it go, psychologically punishing Virgo in whatever way they see fit. Neither signs have much of a capacity for emotions which can make the emotional issues more difficult to deal with than usual.

However if the signs keep the relationship exciting this match can most definitely be successful. Both signs thrive in stable relationships and will combine Virgo’s rational-type-determination with Taurus’ romance oriented determination to create a secure, sensual relationship. Virgos generally have a very strong libido which can simultaneously be satisfied by and excite Taurus’ sensuality. Taurus has endless determination and patience which Virgo values and appreciates above most. Both signs are very humorous which means a good friendship between them can make a strong foundation for them to build on. Neither of these signs likes to be put too far out of their comfort sign which means both partners are quite content to keeps things the way they are. If these two can keep the relationship fun and stimulating, this pairing could be one for life.

Taurus and Libra:

Even though Taurus and Libra are the most compatible signs for each other, they do have their downsides. Libra being a very gentle and conflict-avoiding lover can be scared or thrown off my Taurus’ (hardly provoked yet terrifying) rage. Libra’s live and breathe love (whether it’s romantic or platonic) and have a flirtatious air about them. Taurus may confuse this for Libra being flirty with others and may take it very personally and hold resentment. Because of Libra’s hate for conflict and confrontation, they’ll often take the blame in relationships and apologise first to restore the relationship to its initial state of harmony. Taurus may use this to their disposal which can be quite unfair and upsetting to Libra. However Librans can be quite critical in their partnerships, in pursuit of the perfect partner. This may make Taurus feel self-conscious or insecure, making them retreat into themselves.

However, like I said, these signs are the most compatible signs for each other. Both signs LOVE partnership and value it equally but for different reasons which gives diversity to the relationship. Taurus is a very sensual partner, adding the spice to Libra’s love of romance to create a very dream-like relationship which can be a very relaxing aspect of their lives, the part where they can unwind and let loose. Both signs have a love for the arts, Taurus loves the arts that appeal to the senses (music, visual art, photography) and Libra loves the intellectual based arts (writing of all types, theatre). If Taurus isn’t too forceful with their stability, they can provide good grounding for Libra’s who sometimes tend to float from reality. If Taurus can learn to accept Libra’s flirty nature and not take it so seriously and Libra can ease up on the criticism, this match is very well suited for a long-term relationship.

Taurus and Scorpio:

These two signs are opposites, sister signs. As with any pairing that consists of opposites, it can either go really well or horribly wrong, depending on the amount of effort both signs are willing to put into it. Both of these signs are the most resentful, grudge-holding of the Zodiac which means that when they have a serious falling out, it will take them ages, if ever to restore harmony to the relationship. Both signs have a vicious temper when provoked which makes them a very dangerous couple if they’re aggressively inclined. Both signs are insensitive to each other’s emotions and since both feel things very deeply, this can lead to them getting very hurt. Taurus’ likes to have financial dominance in the relationship but Scorpio demands full control. Scorpios don’t enjoy being reliant and being relied on, and Taurus’ tend to be quite dependent in relationships.

However sister signs can be very compatible if they can understand their differences. Both signs expect nothing less than absolute loyalty from their partner and give it back in return, making a very stable foundation to build on. Scorpios need a lot of time for self-reflection and self-discovery in their lives and thus need a partner who will be patient and willing to let them grow. Patient Taureans are perfect for this. Taurus’ are very insensitive signs and might also have a problem communicating their emotions to their partner. Scorpios, being water signs, are very intuitive, and can tell when Taurus’ is having a hard time or is upset and can respond accordingly to avoid a big confrontation about it but at the same time comforting them. Scorpio can benefit from Taurus’ stability greatly since they need someone to keep them steady while they find themselves. Both signs are very emotionally resilient which promises a long lasting relationship. If these signs are willing to compromise, understand and accept each other’s differences, this can make a very promising relationship.

Taurus and Sagittarius:

Taurus and Sagittarius can be a very tricky match, as fire and earth signs generally are, but Sagittarius’ adventurous nature could compromise it even more. Sagittarius’ hate possessiveness, being the free-spirited learner of the Zodiac, Sagittarius needs freedom in a relationship if they’re going to make it work which means Taurus’ jealous nature could repel them. Taurus’ like to settle, to have a home type relationship but Sagittarius’ find it ridiculously hard to settle. Taurus’ craves structure and stability which Sagittarius doesn’t have, on the contrary, they can be quite irresponsible and tactless. Whereas Sagittarius’ are quite optimistic, Taureans are very rational and although Sagittarius can benefit from that, it could also bore them. Sagittarius’ have no time for grudges and resentment, and thus, if Taurus is going to try hold it over them, they will just back out.

This pairing can learn a lot from each other though if they are willing to compromise with one another. Taurus’ love for the arts and their sensual nature can appeal to Sagittarius a lot seeing as they love learning and experiencing things. Over time, as they get used to it, Sagittarians can find comfort in having stability and even find a way to make it exciting for both of them. Taurus can show the beauty of the home, romantic contentment and simplicity and Sagittarius can show Taurus the wonders of the outside world and things beyond their knowledge. This may scare Taurus but Sagittarius will be there to hold their hand. Basically, this relationship is one in which both partner s learn an awful lot about life, the world and themselves. If Taurus allows Sagittarius to satisfy their restlessness and Sagittarius makes an effort to commit to the relationship, this relationship will be a happy one.

Taurus and Capricorn:

Like other earth pairings, this one can be really good but also has its drawbacks. Capricorn is a very ambitious, work oriented sign and Taurus being a very home oriented yet ambitious sign, may feel challenged and neglected at the same time. They like to be financially dominant in the relationship and if their partner is outdoing them they may feel belittled. Capricorns are also very independent signs and need their own space, whereas Taurus’ who invest everything into their relationships can be quite dependent on their partner, sometimes overstepping boundaries. This can result in Capricorn feeling smothered and trying to back out. Capricorns can be quite pessimist which does effect the ending result of the relationship; whether or not it’ll work. Where Capricorn likes to be in control, Taurus can be possessive which can result in a power play between the two. If the two signs get caught up in just making the relationship last for the sake of the title, the relationship can grow stale.

However there is a lot to be said for this pairing, as earth signs are generally very successful in long-term relationships. Both enjoying stability and structure, the foundation of this relationship is very strong and sturdy. Taurus’ being the sign of comfort and sensuality loves to pamper and treat Capricorn who works hard and is quite self-sacrificial in their work (they tend to be stressed a lot). Capricorn notices Taurus’ practical potential and encourages them to be more disciplined and ambitious. A long-lasting relationship between these two will result in a very luxurious, materialistic home, since Taurus enjoys retail therapy and Capricorn can help make sure Taurus is being smart with their money. Capricorns buy things of high quality and longevity. If these signs can establish good boundaries, keep things interesting and meet each other half way, they can really work.

Taurus and Aquarius:

Earth and Air combinations are always quite an unusual pairing, Taurus and Aquarius are no exception to that. Aquarius loves freedom and individuality above all else. They do not care if their partner is jealous and they also won’t care if their partner is trying to make them jealous, seeing as they don’t have a jealous bone in their body. They really won’t appreciate Taurus’ jealous/possessive streak. The defence mechanism of an Aquarius is generally to pull away the more their partner pushes and since Taurus (out of desperation most likely because of their emotional investment) will push to try to make things right, Aquarius will keep pulling away. Both signs here are very opinionated and may clash on certain subjects (some may be quite important to either of them). Taurus craves intimacy and sensuality whereas Aquarius is more interested in a meeting of the minds and isn’t quite bothered with romance.

However these two can also be the pairing to move mountains. Aquarius is a very unconventional thinker and likes to come up with philosophies and ideas. Taurus comes across very strong and has the means to make these ideas and philosophies really sit with people. Working together, these two are a very influential couple. Although they don’t admit it, Aquarius’ needs routine, they may not like it, but they need it, Taurus naturally provides this for Aquarius without any confrontation that Aquarius may find embarrassing. Both signs value and desire and equal relationship, team work. Taurus provides unlimited patience while Aquarius deals with their own mind which can often kick up a storm when on the verge of a new idea. Aquarius can show Taurus all the benefits of intellectual stimulation, and show them new ideas that will really make them think and question. If Taurus can learn how to control their possessiveness and Aquarius can extend some intimacy, this pairing makes the perfect team.

Taurus and Pisces:

Earth and water signs tend to go quite well with one another, mainly because water is fluid and can change to suit the situation. However Pisces is a sensitive soul and can be scared of Taurus’ rage if they ever crossed them enough. Pisces don’t like conflict and will normally hold more of a passive aggressive stance in relationships. When Taurus isn’t getting the reaction they want, they’ll only go further, forcing Pisces to possibly shut down the emotional part of their psyche as a defence. Pisces can also be manipulative at the best of times when they want something. If Taurus catches on to this they can be greatly upset and hold onto it throughout the relationship. Taurus might be too overbearing in the relationship and Pisces as a very mutable sign likes to be able to flirt with other possibilities. Both signs can be quite delusional when it comes to their relationships, refusing to see something if they’re not happy with it. This can turn the relationship dangerous if they’re not careful.

However this pairing is also a very understanding one. Both tend to invest their emotions in their relationships so they both treat it with care and there isn’t a case of one person being more involved than the other, which is normally a problem for Taurus. Both of them hold the same values in the relationship; harmony and stability, which means there’s rarely any misunderstanding in the relationship or any kind of “what are we?” type questioning. Pisces being a very spiritual and transcendent sign can make the relationship a very awakening experience, mixed with Taurus’ sensuality, the energy between the two is very intense. Pisces’ intuition allows them to sense when something is wrong with Taurus and will do whatever they can to make them feel better. Pisces and Taurus relationships are usually very empathic in an unspoken way. Taurus doesn’t like to take risks which makes Pisces feel secure and safe while they dream away. With enough discipline on Pisces part, and self –control on Taurus’, this partnership is incredibly successful.

Taurus fear of commitment goes far beyond their stubbornness.  In fact, it has nothing to do with stubbornness and everything to do with responsibility and trust.  As a fixed earth sign, Taurus sticks to the tried and true because security is important to them.  Taurus works hard because Taurus is sure of the security that’s derived from hard work.  Yes, they are attached to the material world, just not in the way other people are.  Much like 1 + 1 = 2, Hard work + responsibility = commitment.  When it comes to love, it’s different.  Taurus is certainly more than they seem.  Most of the people that will enter their life will never know or understand them completely.  Every Taurean goes through an experience where they tried to reveal who they were only to be ignored, unrecognized or simply misunderstood.  Commitment in love means surrendering ourselves to another person, trusting that they won’t hurt us one bit.  That is why it takes us a long period of time to truly open up and commit.  We want to be sure that you will assure us the best of love and the best of security.  Don’t give up on us.

This might be the realest post I’ve ever written

I hoped you liked my brief run down of a Moon in Taurean personality!

Taureans are warm, loving, gentle and charming most of the time. Motivated by self preservation, the Taurean is not a risk taker and weighs every decision carefully, in a slow and methodical manner. To more impulsive people, Taurus may appear a bore. Opinionated and obstinate, once a Taurean makes a decision, it is written in stone. Don’t expect radical thinking and innovative ideas here. Basically grounded, material people, Taureans prefer the known to the unknown, the tried to the new. They love the earth, comforting things, sense of ownership, and generally treat those they love as possessions.
