Taurus Compatibility Chart
Below is a chart of the compatibility of Taurus with each sign.
Several factors are used in determining this. Some of these factors are the aspects between Taurus and the other signs, the personalities of the signs involved, and observation and experience as to how the various signs interact with each other.
Read on to learn the signs that are the best matches for Taurus.
Capricorn is an excellent match for Taurus. These signs have a naturally harmonious relationship with each other. They are both Earth signs, and they understand each other very well. In many ways, these signs think alike.
Both of these signs are very practical and down-to-earth. Yet, even though they have many similarities, they are different enough to provide balance to each other.
Taurus is calm and quiet, enjoying the pleasures of the material world. Yet, taken to excess, the positive traits of Taurus can become inverted and turn into laziness and hedonism. Capricorn is resourceful and diligent, working hard to achieve success in life. Yet, Capricorn can also be prone to workaholism.
When these signs get together, however, they can help each other find the right balance. Capricorn can help motivate Taurus, and Taurus can help Capricorn relax and enjoy life. This is a wonderful combination.
Another fine match for Taurus is Capricorn’s opposite sign, Cancer. Taurus and Cancer are the two most domestic signs in the zodiac. They share many of the same interests and values. They both have the same need for security, and they both strive for warmth and comfort.
From the outside, it can sometimes be difficult to tell these two signs apart. Yet, they do have some very important differences. Cancer is much more emotional than Taurus. Cancer natives are natural caregivers, and they worry about those that they love. Indeed, they worry about a great many things.
Cancer is also much more active than Taurus. Even though Cancer natives tend to stay home a lot, they are very busy in the home.
These differences help these two signs to provide balance for each other. Taurus can help Cancer to stay calm, and Cancer can help Taurus find motivation. In general, these two signs bring out the best in each other.
Another very good match for Taurus is Virgo. Like Taurus, Virgo is an Earth Sign. This means that these signs share a sense of grounding in the material world. They have an intuitive understanding of each other, and they agree about many things.
Yet, there are some important differences between these two signs that help them to balance each other’s excesses. Virgo is practical and hard-working, but also has a great deal of nervous energy. This sign aims for perfection, which is rarely possible. This can make Virgo natives prone to extreme stress and worry if they are not careful.
The calm and quiet Taurus can help Virgo to relax and to gain perspective. In this way, Taurus provides an anchor for Virgo. In turn, Virgo is another sign that can help motivate Taurus. Virgo will also help Taurus to maintain more healthy habits when it comes to diet and exercise.
Scorpio is the sign that is opposite to Taurus. In theory, opposite signs are the natural partners for each other. In practice, however, some opposite sign pairs are more compatible than others. Taurus and Scorpio have a high degree of compatibility with each other.
One of the primary characteristics that these signs share is steadfastness. Both of these signs generally mate for life, and they take their partnerships quite seriously. They also share the negative tendency to get jealous, but this works in their favor when they get together. They instinctively know what to do to make the other feel secure.
These signs truly are the opposites of each other, though. Scorpio is bold and passionate, whereas Taurus tends to be gentle and calm. This allows them to balance each other. Also, while tense, the opposition creates a great deal of physical chemistry between these signs.
Just as there are some great matches for Taurus, there are also some quite difficult matches. Below are the most troublesome matches for Taurus.
There are technical astrological reasons why Taurus and Sagittarius have difficulty together, but in reviewing the general nature of the signs, it is rather obvious that they would not be compatible.
Taurus needs quiet and stability and absolutely dislikes change. For natives of this sign, the ideal life is one in which they stay in one place, doing the same thing every day. If they have good food, good sex, pleasant surroundings, and a comfortable chair, they have everything that they need.
This type of life would be unbearably dull and boring for a Sagittarius native. Sagittarius needs adventure and freedom. This sign withers if confined to one place. Travel is an absolute need for Sagittarius to stay happy and healthy. To Taurus, the life of a Sagittarius would be frightening and uncomfortable.
Additionally, Taurus is prone to jealousy, and Sagittarius is absolutely allergic to any hint of possessiveness coming from a partner. It would be very difficult for these two signs to find any common ground.
Gemini is another sign with a very low level of compatibility with Taurus. This sign is not as prone to wanderlust as Sagittarius; however, Gemini still gets bored very easily. Gemini has no understanding or patience for the Taurean desire for consistency and repetition.
There are some very obvious difficulties between these two signs. For example, Gemini loves to flirt, and Taurus is famous for being quite jealous and possessive. Yet, in some ways, the larger issues are easier to reconcile than the myriad smaller ones.
One of the biggest challenges for this pairing is finding common ground on a day to day basis. As we mention in our Taurus traits article, Taurus is happiest when every day is like the day before, with no surprises and very little variety. Such a lifestyle would bore Gemini to tears.
Gemini thrives on new experiences and rarely does anything the same way twice. In many ways, this sign is like a butterfly, flitting from flower to flower. This would cause Taurus to feel constantly insecure and off-center.
Aries thrives on conflict, competition, and challenge. Taurus needs peace, quiet, and comfort. It will be very hard for these two signs to find common ground. Taurus finds Aries noisy and exhausting, and Aries find Taurus dull and frustrating.
Unlike many incompatible pairs, this match is not very volatile. It is, however, very unlikely. In most cases, these signs do not have enough in common to get together at all. If they do get together, the lack of volatility is not a strength, but a weakness.
At heart, Aries needs a good fight on a regular basis. The archetype for this sign is that of a warrior, and in modern times, there is not always an outlet for the aggressive energy of this sign. While many natives of this sign channel their aggressive and competitive spirit into sports or other physical activities, it also comes out in their relationships from time to time.
The problem for Aries is that it is incredibly hard to get Taurus to argue. Taurus does have a formidable temper, but it rarely rises to the surface. Most of the time, Taurus will just ignore Aries when Aries tries to pick a fight. Aries will find this extremely frustrating.
If Aries does persist long enough to get a rise out of Taurus, they will have a battle from which will be very difficult to recover.
Taurus men are most compatible with their fellow Earth sign Capricorn, as well as watery Cancer.
Both Capricorn and Cancer share Taurus’ down to earth and practical nature, as well as their desire to feel connected and needed.
Taurus men are able to form long term-love relationships with both of these signs, as well as earth sign Virgo, that understand but also challenges Taurus.
They also make a surprisingly good match with sharp-tongued Scorpio.
Taurus men tend to have the ability to see through the more challenging aspects of Scorpio’s personality to the deeply feeling person underneath.
Plus, Taurus and Scorpio have excellent sexual chemistry.
Taurus males also have a comfortable and safe bedroom chemistry with Cancer and Capricorn.
Taurus women are most comfortable with their elemental matches, the earth signs Capricorn and Virgo, but also form strong relationships with the nurturing water sign Cancer.
She also finds herself drawn to the emotional water signs Scorpio and Pisces, in whom she often sees someone who “needs” her and to whom she can provide structure and balance.
When it comes to long term love and marriage, Taurus women work well with all of these signs.
In the bedroom too, but here Taurus women tend to find themselves more fulfilled by the water signs Cancer and Scorpio.
But when it comes to being able to talk about everything that really matters, no one is better for Taurus than Cancer and Capricorn.
Taurus women will find that most of their best friends come from these two signs.
Taurus needs security and stability in relationships and is the most compatible with the other Earth Signs, Capricorn and Virgo. This sign also does well with Water Signs, such as Cancer and Scorpio. Taurus is able to get along with most signs, however. The notable exceptions are Sagittarius, Gemini, and Aries.
Yet, love is complicated and so are most people. There are many factors besides a person’s Sun Sign that influence their personality. Furthermore, love and romance rarely follow logic or reason. Sometimes the most compatible couple falls apart, and sometimes the most unlikely pair stays together for life.
Whether a relationship will survive depends as much on motivation, compromise, and willingness to stay together through life’s challenges as it does on natural compatibility.
