Zodiac Sign of Taurus


Aries, the fiery, impulsive Ram makes an interesting partner for Taurus, the generally calm and centred bull. The Ram is always ready for action, while you may prefer just sitting quietly. Although the two of you may not seem to have much in common, you can find shared interests and goals that can bring you together. While this isn't going to be the easiest of combinations, it can be very rewarding for both of you. As an Earth Sign blending with a Fire Sign, be aware that you are perfectly capable of destroying each other. Aries has the power to infuriate you with impulsive and selfish actions, but you have the power to squash your Arien lover's childlike enthusiasm when you dig your heels in and refuse to budge. Aries is ruled by fiery Mars, while you are ruled by peace-loving Venus, making it difficult for you to communicate, no matter what your gender happens to be! You'll need to be more tolerant than you are used to, because your natural possessiveness and thrifty budgeting will aggravate the fiery Ram, who loves nothing more than to splash out on a reckless spending spree. However, you both have a strong creative drive and will enjoy working together as a team for the same goals. Once you have learned to respect each other's differences, this should be a very rewarding relationship. The combination certainly requires discipline and motivation. It often requires the support of compatible Moon and Ascendant signs. An Aries partner will always be inclined to be impulsive, which could drive you batty in the long run. They just never seem to learn! An affectionate affair can turn into a difficult marriage. Seek out creative projects to work on (including raising a family) and you can channel your combined energy into creating something positive. Top


Two Bulls can make beautiful music together, whether you are on a country farm or city flat. It's easy to spend time with someone who has similar values and enjoys the same things you do. The two of you will naturally be attracted to each other, but since you both tend to attract rather than pursue, one of you will have to make the first move! The double Earth factor - and the fact that Taurus is ruled by sensual, charming Venus - can lead to many sensual days and nights... even if this is not an intimate relationship, you will enjoy sharing sumptuous meals in comfortable surroundings. The down side of this is that you are also both likely to put on weight and otherwise indulge in excessive behaviour. Venus is artistic, musical and attracts money, so you can build a good life, if you choose. Neither of you enjoy being told to stop nor is moderation in your vocabulary, so it might be wise to take up some sort of physical discipline together. Yoga is perfect because it increases flexibility... something you could use help with in both body and mind. The two of you will also benefit from spending time in parks and gardens, where you can relax and focus on the simple sweetness of life. This combination can work well but is best when Moon and Ascendant harmonize in other signs. Without a motivating factor, it would be very easy for you to get into a rut and stay there! This is a good combination for all kinds of relationships, but works especially well for long-term commitments.  Top


You may be taken by the Twin's undeniable charm, but you might also want to think twice before falling in love with a Gemini. Most Bulls are possessive by nature, and you cannot possess an airy Gemini any more than you can own the wind. This can make a good friendship, family, or business oriented relationship, but in more intimate relationships harmonious aspects between Moon and Ascendant are needed. Because Gemini is of a Mutable nature, he or she won't understand your need to put down roots and general discomfort with change. As far as Gemini is concerned, being free of constraints and exploring different worlds each day is about as close as one can come to heaven. You like to know you can count on things being regular, predictable, and dependable. To Gemini, that spells b-o-r-i-n-g. Of course, your rich imagination and creativity makes you anything but dull, but the flighty, Mercury-influenced Twins sometimes mistake sheer variety for quality. With peace loving Venus guiding you, you may decide to be patient with Gemini and allow him or her to finally realize that you truly are a partner worth settling down for. But then again, you may decide that trying to get a Gemini to commit isn't worth the trouble. This combination is not the easiest for close, personal relationships but can work well when harmonious aspects between personal planets and Ascendant exist. You can learn a thing or two from each other, but it will require patience and understanding on both parts!  Top


Your encounter with Taurus the Bull has the aroma of a fine home-cooked meal. The delicious pleasures of Venus attract your senses, for the Bull has an irresistible personal magnetism that will draw you into their circle, rather than actively seeking you out. While the Bull is very fond of members of the opposite sex, Taurus prefers to be courted. Taurus, however, is straight-forward and down-to-earth in sexual matters. The Bull prefers a no-nonsense approach; too much verbalising or complex fantasising is not really Taurus's thing. Music or other forms of sensual, non-verbal expression will strike a chord in the Taurean nature. Faithful friends (and dedicated enemies), Taureans prefer long-lasting relationships and seek to build strong alliances, although they can be misled by their sensual natures, especially when young. Taurus however will grow more stable and discriminating as time goes on, for the Taurean character is naturally inclined to permanence and the satisfaction of a job well done. Sensual Taurus, an Earth Sign, provides a good, solid grounding to your emotional nature (Cancer being a Water Sign). Water and Earth mix to form a fertile soil in which seeds will grow. Together, the two of you can be fruitful and multiply, whether you are creating a family, a business, or an artistic enterprise! However, having opened the floodgates of passion, Taurus can be insatiable and possessive, so Taurean emotions will be trifled with at your peril. The great side of this is that Taurus is intensely loyal and makes a caring, life-long partner, who will seek to provide for and satisfy your every need. This is a perfect match. Top


The glamorous, dramatic Lion may grab your attention, but be prepared to engage in epic power struggles and battles of the will. The two of you share ambition, determination, and an undeniable animal attraction, but you also possess iron wills. This can be a wonderful partnership, but first you must tame the beasts within. Because you are both Fixed Signs, you have a powerful sense of purpose and are unlikely to be deterred from your goals. This can also be experienced by others as extreme stubbornness and obstinacy! When you focus your combined staying power on achieving worthy ends, nothing can stand in your way. Unfortunately, when you focus on trying to control and dominate each other, you end up in an endless stalemate. Mutual respect is required in this relationship, because without it you may find that your best friend has become your worst enemy. The creative arts can bring you together, as Leo loves to be in the spotlight and you love to share in all things beautiful. Leo is filled with inspiration, but you have what it takes to make dreams come true. Because Leo is ruled by the Sun, he or she has a need to shine. Venus gives you the skills it takes to help others shine, making you the perfect PR person for the less tactful Cat. When you work together, you have incredible potential to both inspire and entertain. This combination is difficult but can be rewarding. If more harmonious contacts exist between your personal planets and Ascendant, it should be easier to communicate and understand each other. Top


The Bull and the Virgin are very comfortable together, making this a very natural and easy combination. In fact, it's likely to be a case of love at first sight! Of course, you may be annoyed by Virgo's occasionally nit-picking perfectionism, but overall you will enjoy spending time with someone who is as solid and practical as you are. As two Earth Signs, you have much in common. Both of you are interested in financial security and physical comfort. Taurus keeps a careful eye on expenditures, which pleases thrifty Virgo. However, you may want to spend more on luxuries, while your opposite number may insist on only the bare necessities. Virgo can help you to economize better, while you can show Virgo the value of occasionally indulging in small pleasures. You are both interested in good value and quality, so you both tend to be good stewards of your resources. Together, you can build quite a fortune if you put your minds to it. The physical side of life is also important to you both, but you may need to coax the sexual fires into business with Virgo, who has a long fuse, and explodes if you are patient! Virgo may play food cop more than you like. Virgo can help you to be more health and diet conscious, but you can show Virgo that it's quite all right to indulge in gastronomic delights on occasion. Both of you have been blessed with the gifts of common sense, resourcefulness, and practicality, which makes for a very solid astrological combination. This can be a long lasting and rewarding partnership of any kind and works especially well in family and marriage. It's a successful team that makes a perfect match. Top


Although you may be very different in temperament, you'll find much to like about your charming Libran partner. You both appreciate beauty and delight in the finer things in life, which can build a basis for an enjoyable relationship. Human connections are very important to both of you, and you will both work hard to make a relationship succeed. But first, you must learn to appreciate each other's differences! Both signs are ruled by Venus, so comfort and company are high on your list of priorities. The way to the Libran heart is through appreciation and admiration. Make sure you understand this need for appreciation if you want to make progress. Libra is very much about relationship: your Libran partner seeks to please and views lovemaking as an art. Creating the right environment for love is very important and a failure to do so on your part will soon see Libra looking elsewhere. Libra is a Cardinal Sign, so is inclined to take the lead in your activities. However, Libra is notorious for waffling back and forth over everything, which can drive even the most patient Bull batty. Once you decide on a course of action, not much can deter you from it... whereas Libra may change direction several times in the course of one day! You can help Libra see which choices make the most sense... something you have an uncanny gift for. In return, Libra can help you respond more gracefully in social situations, even when you feel more like a raging bull. In time, though, Libra's casual, fickle attitude toward love may really get to you. You are naturally possessive, even jealous, and this urge to own and control will not sit well with your flirty Libran. It is not the easiest combination, but a match can work if you are both willing to compromise. Harmonious aspects between other chart factors, such as Moon and Ascendant can produce a long and happy partnership; otherwise this romantic combination will not last long. Top


Steer clear of this relationship if you can't take the heat, because when the Bull and the Scorpion get together, you can expect the mercury to rise! You'll either love each other or hate each other, but you'll never be indifferent about the relationship. Because you are both Fixed Signs, you can expect a battle of the wills to erupt from time to time. You each have strong opinions from what is the best brand of breakfast cereal to who should run for political office, so it's best to agree to disagree from the start. You are both very loyal to what you hold dear, and that can include each other, which can be a very good thing. It is important to find activities you can enjoy sharing, because this is a relationship that benefits from having shared goals and experiences. Family is usually of high importance to both of you, but you may not agree on the best way to handle family relationships. The truth is probably that if you meet in the middle, you will be more effective than if you stick to your own personal extremes. This can be a challenging combination but also a very passionate and loyal one. Harmonious aspects between Moon and Ascendant will go far in assuring that this will be a long lasting and rewarding connection. Top


It's not that you don't find the Archer amusing and pleasant to be around... it's just that you are interested in putting down roots and Sagittarius wants to go around the world at least three or four times before even thinking about settling down. If the two of you find yourselves in a relationship together, chances are very good that you have complimentary Moon and Ascendant Signs that help you to overcome your fundamental differences. Expansive Jupiter urges the Archer to aim ever higher, always moving on to the next goal or conquest. Life is a quest for this Mutable Sign, and while he or she may enjoy the feast at your table, it is usually just a stop along the way. As a Fixed Sign ruled by Venus, you would much prefer to spend your days in familiar, comfortable surroundings. Even if you love to travel, you are more likely to require luxury accommodations, while your Sagittarian friend will get excited over pitching a tent on Mount Everest! Some of you, especially those influenced by Fire and Air Signs, will enjoy camping in the wilderness. But in general, a comfy couch and an interesting program to watch on the television is more your style. While this isn't the most compatible combination, it can work when more harmonious connections between Moon and Ascendant exist. With patience and understanding, the steady Bull can learn to live with the venturesome Archer. Top


When the Bull and the Sea-Goat get together, it may seem like a match made in heaven. With so much in common, it is easy for you to get along with someone who has such good taste! The two of you have a talent for attracting the finer things life and can do very well as a team in both business and personal relationships. Conservative Saturn influences Capricorn, giving the Goat a serious and responsible nature, with the ability to work towards long-term goals. As a Taurus, you are in tune with pleasure-loving Venus, so it will be up to you to help your Capricorn lover loosen up a bit. In turn, the Sea-Goat will support you in your efforts to improve yourself, which isn't usually on the top of your list of things to do. While you are no stranger to hard work, many Bulls are content to maintain the status quo. Capricorn, on the other hand, is always looking for a worthy mountain to climb. There is a time to strive and a time to rest and enjoy, and together you two have a good chance of finding the perfect balance. Because you are both Earth Signs, your temperaments are fundamentally similar. In the art of lovemaking, Capricorn is enthusiastic and adventurous when aroused, but can be possessive and jealous when threatened. However, you can be comfortable knowing that the loyal Goat will always be there for you. You both enjoy the pleasures of the senses and should have a very passionate sex life... a bit too earthy for some perhaps, but for the two of you it is just right! This is generally a very pleasant combination for love and marriage, but also for business, pleasure, and in family relationships. It can make a wonderful, long-lasting partnership that will benefit the two of you and the community you live in. It really is a perfect match! Top


This is a most unlikely match, but it often happens that you are strangely attracted to the unique and original Water Bearer. Of course, after the initial sparks cool, you may wonder what you could have possibly been thinking when you joined forces with someone so different from yourself. In the end, this relationship will only work out if both parties are willing to compromise and grow. The differences between you are legion. You are notorious for your dislike of change, but Aquarius thrives on the new and unusual. In fact, the more unusual, the better for Aquarius. You, on the other hand, prefer the tried and true. Comfortable, familiar surroundings make you feel safe, and a secure Bull is a happy one. Your idea of heaven is likely to be a home-cooked meal followed by relaxing comfortably in your own garden patio, which Aquarius could do well to experience now and then. Everyone needs to be grounded and centered which is something you come by naturally. In return, your Aquarius partner can help you open up to the wonderful possibilities in life, and to be less afraid of an uncertain and changeable future. As an Earth Sign, you may find it very hard to relate to the Water Bearer's Air Sign nature. You thrive on outward and concrete expressions of affection, while Aquarius may seem detached and emotionally unavailable at times. Possessiveness is a natural instinct for you, but Aquarius is a fiercely independent and unpredictable soul. Of course, because you are both Fixed Signs, you are equally capable of great loyalty and devotion. It is better for you to be friends than to be enemies, because as enemies you could potentially destroy each other! This is usually a difficult combination. Harmonious aspects between Moon and Ascendant can increase the potential for compatibility, and with patience and understanding this can be a rewarding relationship. Top


This could be a match made in heaven. Ruled by Venus, you love everything beautiful and sensual, which is something your Piscean lover is likely to be. No matter what the Fish looks like on the outside, he or she knows the value of music, art, and culture in life. Spending time feeding your physical senses will be important to your relationship. However, the temptation to overindulge will always be strong, especially when it comes to rich foods and alcohol. If you can incorporate moderate exercise and other healthy habits into your daily routine, you will be able to enjoy all the pleasures in life for many years together. Because Taurus is an Earth Sign and Pisces is a Water Sign, the chances are very good that this will be a fruitful union in more ways than one. Material success, creativity, and happiness can be yours when you are in harmony with each other. However, if you, as a Fixed Sign, are too controlling and rigid with the Mutable Fish or Pisces gets too vague and undependable with you, the result can be an emotional quagmire. Pisces, ruled by healing Jupiter and inspired Neptune, can bring inspiration and imagination to the relationship, while you, being more practical, can turn your shared dreams into reality. When the two of you come together to create a home and family by being the best that you each can be, you should be remarkably successful. This can be one of the most compatible and comfortable combinations of the Zodiac. It can be a very successful and rewarding relationship, in fact, it's a perfect match. Top
