Taurus Compatibility with Other signs

In zodiac and astrology, a lot of differences come from various factors that govern the 12 distinct signs. There are four different elements (Fire, Earth, Air and Water), three different qualities (cardinal, fixed and mutable signs) and there are also corresponding planets (Mars, Venus, Mercury, Pluto, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune with the Sun and Moon) thrown in for good measure. All these factors directly influence the different ways the signs of zodiac interact with each other, how they behave and how they are judged. That being said, there is one defining characteristic that can be found in all of the signs, and that is the representation of polarity: positive or negative, inward or outward, impassive or expressive, introvert or extrovert. Though it might not be accurate, this telltale characteristic of each sign can be regarded as the simplest way to determine a sign’s basic traits. Particularly, Taurus falls under the most accurate personality polarity – negative. Being on a negative polarity does not mean that Taurus is doomed to be a pessimistic person; in fact, the sign is considered to be one of the most inwardly positive signs of the zodiac astrology.

TAURUS – The Bull

Individuals are who are born between April 21 to May 20 are under the zodiac sign of Taurus. This sign known as “The Bull” is considered by astrologers to be a “fixed” sign when it comes to cardinal qualities, because the period it falls into is the freshest of the seasons, when the Earth is most green and fresh. This means that Taurus has stability, is very resistant to change and has a tendency to take things slow and enjoy the company of friends and acquaintances. Taurus is well known for being inwardly peaceful, patiently grazing about and minding its own business unless otherwise bothered, which will then cause it to maim and rampage, just like a taunted bull.

TAURUS – Mythology

There are many allusions of the Bull in Greek Mythology: it is commonly associated as being the bull Zeus took the form of when he abducted Europa. It is also known to be derived from the Minotaur, a wild beast trapped inside the Labyrinth and slain by Theseus. It is also known as the Cretan Bull, which was made famous by being part of the Twelve Labors of Hercules.

TAURUS – Qualities

Being a sign ruled by the planet Venus with Earth as its corresponding element, Taurus is known to be very sensual. They are also very slow to anger because of their known stability and inner peace. However, they can also become very possessive at times. Since individuals born under this sign are known to be “bull headed”, they will not stop until they achieve a certain goal in mind, no matter what it is and who they step on. This stubborn nature would be their undoing.

Although very sensual, they are also known to be the quietest and gentlest people among the horoscope signs. They are also very soft-spoken but very much aware of their own actions because of their inward knowledge.

TAURUS – Element

Earth is the defining element of Taurus. As with the other earth signs (Virgo and Capricorn), this sign is said to be both sensual and practical (probably where the term “down to earth” originated from). Earth signs are also known as being associated to fertility. That is why during the Grecian times of the gods and the goddesses, The Bull is one of the strongest symbolic images of fertility.

TAURUS – Governed by the goddess of love and beauty

Venus is known to be the governing planet of the sign of the Bull. Venus’ influence on the sign is mainly through creativity, as people born under Taurus are known to be very creative individuals. They are not only known for their outward creativity, but they mainly express all of their creative talents by being in total coordination with themselves.

As with all the signs of zodiac, Taurus also has its agreements and disagreements with the other signs. The chart below is based on the Sun-sign compatibility, which stresses the compatibility of Taurus to the other signs under the earth element (Capricorn and Virgo). Taurus is also said to be quite compatible with most of the signs governed by the water element (Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio). The other signs (Aries, Sagittarius, Gemini, Leo, Libra and Aquarius) are deemed to be incompatible based on the Astrological discipline known as synastry:

Taurus is also known to have variable compatibility with its own sign, most probably due to the fact that it is a sign known for its stability and its enjoyment in the company of other people. However, as mentioned earlier, the biggest downfall of Taurus is being extremely stubborn, and a relationship between two stubborn individuals might just not work.


TAURUS compatibility with Taurus (April 21 – May 20)


The similarity between two people in a relationship who are born under the sign of Taurus is strong since they are both sensual in nature. When it comes to physical attraction, these two are considered a perfect match.

They can understand each other’s quirkiness and need for warmth. The bull usually grazes as soon as the action is finished, and that is what they both can relate to with each other: their need for personal time and inward reflections. Out of all the zodiac signs these are the two signs that can relate to each other’s need for stability and balance.  They can be both very cautious and both are looking for security. Because of these qualities, a Taurus couple can be one of the most relaxing and cozy couples to watch and observe because of their slow and purposeful nature.

Unfortunately, those same traits can also be the cause of breakdown of their relationship. Because of their passionate nature and need for constant security, Taurus can be overly possessive and jealous.  They might need to reinforce each other every now and then, but another thing that might hinder this is their stubborn nature.  Neither will let the other totally rule, and they will never give in on any argument. Also because of their constant need for stability and affection, they might be the most boring individuals to ever be together.  They keep on hinging on stability, resulting in the lack of adventure or trying new things, which might end up being monotonous in the long run.  Being that they are a very conservative lot, they will find it extremely strange if their partner tries something new for the first time, as a Taurus will rarely do anything out of the ordinary. Having said that, this might be one of the most traditional couples, and their relationship can certainly work especially since they already know what makes each other tick. As long as one of them is willing to give way to the other, this pairing can definitely reach new levels of intimacy and sensuality.


TAURUS compatibility with Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

COMPATIBILITY – Highly compatible

Compatibility between Taurus and Virgo is considered to be the highest out of all the zodiac astrology combinations. Both of the signs are not only related by their Earth elements, they are also governed by the same planet, which is Venus. Both of these signs are highly compatible with each other in the sense that they have a lot of common ground. Both of the signs want a very successful and workable relationship, and when it comes to love, both wish for security and safety. Whatever Taurus needs, Virgo can surely deliver, especially when it comes to bringing peace and stability in a relationship. Among the most highly respected traits that a Virgo has are faithfulness and loyalty, which the Taurus completely appreciates and respects.

Apart from these, both signs are also considered materialistic, practical and realistic. The Virgo’s sharp intellect powerfully attracts the Taurus. Although they are very similar in traits and qualities, temperament might be a different matter altogether. When it comes to certain traits, the Virgo can have a great deal of patience, but the Taurus can be quite stubborn at times. The Taurus tends to nitpick over small details, and one of those things is the tendency of the Virgo to be free and open minded. This fact is not well-received by the Bull, no matter how well-meaning the intention is. Nevertheless, Virgo can still very much sway a Taurus into a very fruitful and long-lasting relationship.

TAURUS compatibility with Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

COMPATIBILITY – Highly compatible

As with Virgo, Capricorn is also an Earth sign, which means that it displays the same practicality and penchant for earthly things as a Taurus. Both signs are also very realistic and ambitious, which results to a lot of dreams shared together. When it comes to any type of financial concerns, nothing can ever beat this combination. Since both are very adept in handling finances, they can keep each other secure and stable, which is crucial for both signs. Of all the signs of zodiac, both of these signs live off of each other and consume each other’s strengths and weakness. The Taurus makes sure that the home is secure and cozy, searching for stability while providing one at the same time. While the Capricorn strives really hard to provide and be recognized with his or her efforts in making sure that their finances and material needs are covered and well taken care of.


TAURUS compatibility with Cancer (June 21 – July 22)


Cancer is a highly emotional horoscope zodiac sign, which often means that they can be very clingy when it comes to relationships. With that being said, this might not pose any problem and uneasiness at all to the Taurean, because they are also known to be very naturally possessive. Both are very conservative in nature, which means that they can be quite traditional when it comes to particular matters. The Taurus needs security and attention, which the Cancer can happily and willingly provide. Probably the main drawback when it comes to a relationship between these two signs is the fact that they have a very high tendency to cling to each other no matter what they do and where they go.

TAURUS compatibility with Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)


Scorpio is generally considered to be the opposite sign of Taurus. Scorpio is also said to have variable compatibility with Taurus, despite their one obvious common trait: possessiveness and jealousy. Both are considered to be extremely possessive of each other, but while a Taurean can easily control his or her emotions more effectively, a Scorpion cannot. The needs of the Taurus are simply less complex; the Scorpio however, can be quite needy at times. The Scorpio can be very demanding when it comes to the relationship, a fact the Taurus might find a bit upsetting, since it is in their nature to be very calm, relaxed and detached, needing personal space whenever they deem it necessary.

TAURUS compatibility with Pisces (February 20 – March 20)


There are noticeable differences on the outset when it comes to a Piscean and a Taurean, and it is the way they handle emotions and feelings as well as how they express them. The approach of a Taurus when it comes to emotions is that they want clear and tangible results. They want it in its simplest and purest form, and they would rather prefer a very direct approach to anything if they can have it their way. On the other hand, a Pisces can be somewhat eclectic and open to other alternative ways or options, which can be very disconcerting to a Taurus. Fortunately for both signs, they do have a strong common ground in being very peace-loving and easy-going. They also complement each other in their distinct own ways: The Pisces needing the dependability and practicality of the Taurus because of their nature of being dreamers, and the Taurean needing the imagination and unpredictability of the Piscean because of their warm affection and love for stability. 


TAURUS compatibility with Aries (March 21 – April 20)

COMPATIBILITY – Incompatible

The primary difference between the Aries and Taurus is their approach when it comes to opportunities: the Arian prefers to go full-on with anything and if given a choice will often grab the opportunity and act as soon as possible; the Taurean, on the other hand, will prefer a more relaxed approach and would want to understand any situation to its fullness before acting. More often than not, the problem mainly arises when the Arian fails and the Taurean might react with a very smug attitude. The Aries also has a tendency to be impatient, and may become furious with the attitude of the Taurus to chill a bit and take things a little slowly. One wants things to be done immediately while the other plans for the future.

TAURUS compatibility with Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

COMPATIBILITY – Incompatible

Nothing in all of the signs of zodiac loves constant change and motion more that Gemini. This trait can be quite problematic when it comes to dealing with Taurus, who prefers things to be slow, stable, traditional and fixed.  This strong contrast is somewhat the main cause of a very difficult relationship between the two signs. People under the sign of Gemini are generally free folk who hate to be tied down, a trait which can clearly be frowned upon and rejected by the Taurean, especially since this provokes their possessive nature. The Gemini sometimes might misjudge and downplay the seriousness of the Taurus. Even though Taureans are very gentle and laid-back folk who seem to prefer quiet over adventure, they also have their own creative adventurous side, which might surprise the Gemini if they but stay still and pay close attention to the needs of the Taurus.

TAURUS compatibility with Sagittarius (November 22 – December 1)

COMPATIBILITY – Incompatible

Sagittarius is notorious for being risk takers, and is very outgoing in nature. They believe that opportunities are all around, and they have the belief that there are greener pastures out there, something that the Taurus can never relate to. Being a creature of stability and security, the Taurus’ needs are basic and simple, which may in turn confuse the need for growth that a Sagittarius needs. Taureans are basically creatures of habit and may never understand the need for adventure that a Sagittarius will always be looking for. More often than not, the restlessness and the constant need to go out and travel may be off-putting to a Taurus, who usually prefers to just stay inside the cozy comforts of their own home.

TAURUS compatibility with Libra (September 23 – October 22)

COMPATIBILITY – Incompatible

Probably the biggest difference between these two signs is the way they handle relationships, especially the way they approach situations. Libra is known to be a very intellectual sign, which makes them more often than not treat their relationship with a more intellectual approach. The Taurus, on the other hand, prefers a more practical way of handling things, making sure that they are comfortable with themselves first before dealing with the needs of a Libran, which usually involve words of adoration and approval. The Libran also needs a lot of interaction, one thing that the Taurus may be too lazy to provide because of their tendency to be self-satisfied. 


TAURUS compatibility with Leo (July 23 – August 22)

COMPATIBILITY – Highly Incompatible

The need for attention and interaction of a Leo can be a problem if ever a Taurus does decide to be in a relationship with them. Leo always wants to be the center of attention, and their outgoing nature might mean that they want to get this outside of the comforts of the home, a trait that might offend or trigger the possessive nature of the Taurean. Although both signs do value loyalty, both go in completely different directions in handling situations. Leos also have their own brand of stubbornness, especially since they always want to be right no matter whose opinion they are challenging, a thing that will never go easy on the natural obstinacy of a Taurus. One thing that might not be working against both signs is their need for loyalty, because they treat long-term relationships as very sacred and important. Nevertheless, the need for constant compromise might strain the relationship, especially if one does not give in to the needs of the other.

TAURUS compatibility with Aquarius (January 20 – February 19)

COMPATIBILITY – Highly Incompatible

Aquarius and Taurus are completely opposite when it comes to stability: Aquarius individuals, being very intellectual in nature, always try to find new challenges in life, and will more often than not try to find new concepts based on old traditions. Taureans, on the other hand, are terrified of the idea of change. Being creatures of habit, they would rather stay in their comfort zones especially in situations where they need to feel secure and stable. The need for constant challenges and creating new things is what drives the Aquarius to achieve new heights, a thing that might boggle the mind of a Taurean. Aquarians will always be attracted to shiny and new things and will go through great lengths to satisfy their desire and need, while a Taurus will always take the “tried and tested” road, one which will always provide them with a sense of security and peace of mind. Moreover, Aquarians also have this unique tendency to be open and try to share their feelings as much as they can, while the Taurus will often prefer to be left alone in their thoughts, choosing solitude and inner peace over interaction with others.
