The Zodiac’s second astrological sign, Taurus, the Bull, is classified as an earth sign as well as generally being introverted. Taurus is ruled by Venus, and is generally considered to be compatible with other earth signs such as Virgo and Capricorn. Born between April 21st and May 21st, Taurus tends to be rather stodgy and unimaginative as well as a seeker of stability and permanence. They also can be (like it’s namesake) incredibly stubborn.
A Taurus-Aries match will find it difficult reaching an agreeable balance between the impulsive nature of Aries and the stay-at-home nature of Taurus. It could work, but not without a lot of work.
Taurus and Cancer have many similarities, the most prominent being a shared need of security and affection. Cancer’s tendency to maintain grudges, whether real or perceived, creates friction in this relationship, although Taurus’ understanding nature is a plus.
Other than a common love for music and the arts, Taurus and Libra have little in the area of compatibility to build a relationship on. Taurus’ compatibility signs, dependability and predictability, clash with Libra’s romantic and sometimes contradictory ways.
Taurus and Capricorn share a mutual like for possessions, and both also offset the other’s weaknesses. These qualities can be built upon to create a successful union.
A Taurus-Taurus match appears, at first glance, to be impossible, given the stubborn nature of Taurus. The problem lies in Taurus’ possessive nature. It’s important to develop outside interests, with the partner’s blessing. If successful, a marriage is possible.
A Taurus-Gemini match is one of the least recommended among the Taurus compatibile signs. Whereas Taurus tends to be settled, settled should never be applied to a Gemini. It’s difficult to imagine a successful union between these two.
Much like Taurus-Gemini, there are too many obstacles, compatibility-wise, to expect much from a Taurus-Leo match. Leo is extravagant and outgoing: Taurus is the polar opposite. Not recommended.
Taurus’ stick-to-it-ness and Virgo‘s sharp intellect make a good combination, although Virgo’s simple outlooks may conflict, eventually, with Taurus’ propensity to plan ahead, almost obsessively. Patience and
discussion, however, can overcome most obstacles.
Taurus-Scorpio presents an interesting contrast, along with many similarities. Taurus’ obstinancy and Scorpio’s sometimes unpredictable anger looms as red flags, although sexually, few matches appear to be better suited for each other. Long-term is possible, but not without considerable compromise.
Another match not highly recommended is a Taurus-Sagittarius union. The domesticated nature of Taurus conflicts with the live-and-let-live Sagittarius attitude. Relationships between this pairing will be temporary.
The highly analytical nature of Aquarius will eventually cause Taurus to abandon any long-term hopes for a successful relationship. Taurus tends to play ostrich, going to great lengths to avoid confrontation, while Aquarius lives for it.
Probably Taurus’ best match, Pisces‘ sometimes meek, needy nature falls perfectly into Taurus’ nurturing, security-providing tendencies. Excellent pairing.
