Earth sign Taurus, ruled by romantic Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and money, is the zodiacs pleasure seeker extraordinaire. Those born between April 20 and May 20 — or who have other Taurus placements in their birth chart — adore everything artistic (from music to dance to theater) and romantic (think mood lighting, warm, cozy blankets, and all of the candles and essential oils).
Few signs appreciate luxurious scents and textures like a Taurus, and theyre also known for their penchant for languorous lovemaking with plenty of foreplay. The name of the game for the Bull is taking their sweet time. Even when it comes to getting angry, theyre known for their long fuse. Yet, as the fixed sign of the earth bunch, they can absolutely dig their heels in, stick to whats tried and true, and earn their rep for being hard to budge.
If youre similarly pragmatic, patient, and luxury-loving, youll likely click with a Taurus. (It also bears noting that your sun sign is just one piece of a really complex, nuanced puzzle known as your natal, or birth, chart, which is worth glimpsing over to see which house Taurus rules and if you have any planetary placements that connect with the fixed earth sign.)
TAURUS COMPATIBILITY with EACH SIGN of the ZODIAC
To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet positions from their date of birth and then compare them to your own. This unlocks the real power of astrology and gives much more useful and specific information, such as how they view you, how to turn them on, how to avoid arguments with them etc. If you would like to explore this further please see the astrology compatibility readings page.
Taurus and Aries Compatibility — Problematic Pair
Cardinal fire sign Aries, is semi-sextile, or one sign apart, from Taurus, which makes for a little uneasiness. Preferring to move through life slowly, soaking up information through all five senses, and possessing a long fuse, the Bull might find the Ram way too fast-paced, while the Ram could be frustrated by the Bulls plodding pace and preference to stick to tried-and-true experiences over new ones. But if theyre open to seeing the world through one anothers lenses, Aries can help Taurus get out of any ruts they find themselves in while Taurus can show Aries how to slow down and be more present in the moment.
Taurus and Taurus Compatibility
Two Taureans can absolutely be a match made in heaven, as theyll see eye-to-eye on prioritizing pleasure, art, and comfort, coming up with a practical game plan for getting ahead, and — perhaps most importantly — moving at a glacial pace (for better or worse!). The only dilemma here is that theres double the stubborn, fixed energy in this pairing, so if neither Bull is willing to compromise at least a little, they could find themselves at a standstill.
