Aries and Taurus Compatibility: The Hero and the Lover

The signs are good for this relationships – after all, with Aries ruled by Mars, the planet of passion, and Taurus ruled by Venus, the planet of love, how could it go wrong? Aries and Taurus compatibility can work pretty well, since both signs find in the other something they lack themselves. It’s not all plain sailing, of course – what relationship is? But astrology compatibility tends to determine these two as a partnership worth watching.

Bold, pioneering Aries likes to be the hero in life, while gentle, placid Taurus represents the lover and bon-vivant. This relationship is marked by a tremendous strength of will on both sides, though, so trouble can flare when neither side is willing to compromise. Aries likes to get what Aries wants at all times, but Taurus is famous for being stubborn to the extreme, so it’s hard to tell who will be in charge in this partnership. In fact, for Aries and Taurus, compatibility works best when neither side trumps the other entirely – this can actually be an equal pairing when it’s working well.

There will certainly be passion aplenty, brought by Aries’ fire, and the passion will be sustained throughout the long term by Taurus’ slow burning sensuality. Although Aries has a temper to be reckoned with, Taurus is a relatively passive and calm sign; it will take a great deal to provoke the Taurus partner into firing back at Aries. This is quite healthy, because Taurus won’t take Aries’ tantrums too personally, but even Taurus can only stomach so much before losing patience. When Taurus does let rip, Aries might well wonder what’s hit them, so the Aries partner is well advised to know where to draw the line. For Taurus and Aries, compatibility will generally be a smooth road, but punctuated by very occasional meltdowns when Taurus has had enough!

As partners, these two are good for one another. Taurus brings some much needed common sense to Aries’ risky and rash behaviour; in return, Aries brings some excitement and fire into the relationship, which can only by a good thing for Taurus, who does sometimes get stuck in a rut of their own making. Aries and Taurus compatibility is a very positive thing for both signs in general; even if not in a relationship, these two star signs make very good friends.

Regardless of gender, in this romance it is Aries who provides the masculine qualities and Taurus provides the feminine. Aries will lead and Taurus will follow, but Taurus passivity is blended with a strength of emotion and character which will ground Aries in a very healthy way. Aries and Taurus compatibility works so well because this polarity of masculine and feminine covers all bases and helps the couple have all the inner resources they need for a successful long term love.

Surprisingly though, for such a positive match, this relationship might be slow to get off the ground. You see, Taurus wants to be seduced, wooed and chased. Aries just wants to get on with it and is unlikely to waste much time with the flowers and chocolates stage. To get this Aries and Taurus compatibility off to a good start, Aries should slow down to the pace of life enjoyed by Taurus. Take your time. When Taurus rewards Aries with the sensual smile and open arms, it will be worth waiting for. All Aries people need a rock in their life, someone to turn to when the going gets tough. All Taurus people need a firecracker in their life to turn up the heat a little. For Taurus and Aries, compatibility is high precisely because they are what one another needs.

Remember that in life’s mythological journey, Aries is the hero and Taurus is the lover. And so it is when Aries and Taurus come together – there’s likely to be a happy ending for these two, provided Aries and Taurus compatibility is not rocked by a refusal to compromise. This partnership is more than capable of seeing each other’s points of view and of meeting somewhere in the blissful middle. What good story would be complete without the hero/heroine getting the guy/girl in the end?

  1. Hi Daisy,

    One of the biggest keys to lasting attraction is when opposites do attract… they can have a fascination with each other that can last for a life time… and on a personal note, It’s really great to hear of your parents being successfully married for so long!

  2. this is so alike to both myself and my boyfriend i am an aries very fiery person and always wanting to try new things were my boyfriend is very laid back somtimes to laid back if you ask me,hes very stuborn and likes to get his own way never admits hes wrong which is annoying!but i love his caring and generous side and keeps me above water when i start to go of tracks lol. thanks for info very interesting vick x

  3. This is true. My boyfriend and I are very compatible. He the taurus and I the aries, and sometimes he may be too calm or lazy but i can learn to work with that because everything else he has to offer is great. We’re great bestfriends, sometimes more friends than an actual couple but thats what makes us such a great relationship.

  4. I’m taurus and i have meet Aries and I love him already but i have a boyfriend who is libra butb that Aries is my best friend and I want him to be my soul mate

  6. I recently started dating a Taurus. I am also a Aries! I am going through a divorce right now with a Leo which was a bad mistake. But I can say even though I just started dating and getting out of a bad marriage. I have never been treated the way this wonderful man treats me. I know I need to take it slow. I want it to go soooo fast! It’s crazy I already have such big feelings for him and I don’t understand why. The things he says are just melting! The way he acts is soooooo sexy to me! The way he is with his twin boys ( he is a single dad, mom not involved at all!) It just makes me want him so much more! How do I control myself to move slow so I don’t lose him? I just can’t help it I just meet him and im already falling for him! Help me! They say love at first site ya right but damn I have only known him 2 weeks and im falling fast!

    • I totally understand you!!!!!!!

  7. I completely agree, I am an Aries and my husband is a Taurus. I love to do different things all the time and lose interest very quickly. This caused me many problems earlier in life. Then I met my husband who encourages me to follow through with the things I start. He has faith in me and reminds me that I am very strong willed and smart even when I don’t believe it. He is very stable and saves money where I make money and spend it fairly quickly.
    However, we have come to many compromises over the past 6yrs and it seems like our love has only grown through the struggle of our differences. No we are not a perfect couple but I would not have anyone other than MY TAURUS for MY HUSBAND.

  8. I just got into a relationship with a taurus and me being a aries girl… I’m happy being with him. He knows howbto handel each and every stupid tantrum of mine in all the ways… Hope it lasts forever! 🙂

  9. I am a Taurus woman, and my man is an Aries, i recently got out of a 5 year relationship with a leo man that was painfully boring, i started falling for my Aries man while i was in the relationship. Iv never been happier with a partner, he is crazy wild, and full of life, i love him with my every being, and he loves me. I really feel i have found my soul mate! i thank the universe everyday for him! and i hope this lasts a lifetime.

  10. Its crazy Im an Aries woman in hsve met a Taurus man. At first it really didnt like him but the more we have been around in talked . I notice alot of thing I like about him. He hasva very calming sprit always says the right things in omg in bed we are eye to eye. Only thing is he married slput up in i think his wife is trying to come back . Its to much to stomach but our friendship is wonderful we are open with eachother in both can talk about anything with no judgement on either end. I think im faling for him but i take it day by day not letting him know more then needed. In its crazy he can already tell when im thinking to hard in something is wrong its like he pays me slot of attention where im kind timid in scared to kind approach him in frount of ppl. All in all we are good friends .

  11. I am a Taurus and my daughters father is an aries. I agree with this so much except he isn’t sexual at all. Doesn’t like to make moves. I do believe it has nothing to do with him being an aries but his own thing. I just don’t get it lol he’s content with not being sexual, and I no he isn’t cheating. I believe in astrology to the max, im just not grasping this part of him! Very frustrating…does anyone have advice haha

  12. I’m very surprised by reading this. Every relationship I have had with an Aries, (which were quite a few-for awhile it seemed like I couldn’t get away from them!) ended not so good to horribly.

    • I’ve had the same experience with Aries man once was totally enough for me haha

  13. I am As Taurus met an Aries man in oct. 2014.. We are just friends. I feel we have great chemistry .. I think about this guy ALL THE TIME !! I feel like he’s my Soul mate .. I don’t know what it is we got.. He is so busy with work. & his kids.. We hardly spend any alone time together .. A few days ago I compose a long detailed letter like message & sent to him . Expressing myself to him . He read it . But No response , Reply comments nothing .. He’s still talking to me.. But nothing special or extra.. I care so strongly for him . That I am not interested in no other guys ..meeting anyone new or Anything .. I Am All his .. If he would just open his eyes. & ears & his heart.

  14. I just merry am Aries man two days ago and the conversation is wonderful , he seems very nice. is Been a year since my divorce from a Pisces which he was a narcissist so this is a pleasant change. It’s only Been two dang days so I will keep my fingers crossed for the best.

  15. its crazy how these comments & the description are all so true I am an Aries woman and my man is a Taurus we are perfect together its a love i never felt before but I’m sure y’all know the rest lol

  16. I am an aries and my bf is libra. We love each other so much til I met this Taurus man. He seems to be business minded and so am I. He’s very calm and sometimes bored to talk to but he’s so very sweet and nice. We like each other already and he thinks that I’m his gf already cause he doesn’t know I have a bf. Now, idk what to do because my Libra bf is very caringg too and we always have a topic to talk about While the Taurus, he keeps saying how much he loves me and he wants me to come with him and introduce to his family. I only know this Taurus man for like 2 months while the Libra was like for 4 months already before we commit. My ex was a sag, we love each other so much but I broke upwith him due to his unemotionless attitude and he always agree with me, he dont share his opinions and he just STOP showing his love and care but he really wants me to stay with him but I can’t anymore. I almost date a leo man but they’re very egoistic and vainyy and I dont like it.
