When the Lover of the zodiac meets and falls in love with the Homemaker, you have a recipe for long term happiness and stability that few can match. Cancer and Taurus compatibility is rooted in shared values and a similar outlook on life, which makes this couple great friends and trusted allies as well as ideal lovers.
At the heart of this relationship is a mutual need for security, which is what makes the partnership so strong. While a desire for emotional security is strong in Taurus, Cancer compatibility insists on an ever greater level of emotional stability, so these two signs are a good match in that regard. At the heart of this stability, of course, lies family life. This star sign match is one of the strongest in the zodiac when it comes to home life, and there’s much domestic bliss to be had here. Indeed, for Cancer and Taurus, compatibility is very much focused on the family. Both signs adore being parents, and both signs believe that family life is of the utmost importance.
Expect this couple to keep themselves pretty much to themselves, however. They’re not great social animals, and much prefer the company of each other and their children instead of seeing friends or enjoying activities beyond the home. Privacy is important to both Cancer and Taurus; compatibility between this couple will be a very intimate affair, not to be broadcast to the world. Having said that, both signs are also highly sensual in nature, so they will enjoy a strong sex life – just not in public!
The depth of love shared by Cancer and Taurus is in part born of a karmic link between the two signs, and is underscored by a healthy level of mutual respect. Both partners love to nurture and spoil others and neither is likely to stray far. Since possessiveness can be an issue for both Cancer and Taurus, compatibility depends on this couple spending as much time together as possible- which is fine by them, but might upset mutual friends or extended family members. These two live in one another’s pockets, but they like it that way!
This blissful match is likely to get stronger as the partners mature, because deeper into the relationship each will appreciate the other even more. It’s not a relationship without its stresses and strains however. Under pressure, these zodiac signs handle life differently and that can cause conflict. When the chips are down, Taurus will pig-headedly forge ahead anyway, whereas Cancer will retreat and shut down emotionally. It’s vital that the couple communicate clearly and openly during times of crisis, otherwise Cancer and Taurus compatibility may struggle just when the couple need one another most of all.
As a water sign, Cancer gives nourishment and life to Taurean earth, helping Taurus to express his or her emotions more fully and freely. In return, Taurus’ earth sign qualities soak up some of watery Cancer’s excess emotions, helping the Cancer partner to stay happy (and sane). It’s this natural, inherent give and take which helps to shore up Cancer and Taurus compatibility even further – quite simply, this couple are good for one another’s mental and physical health! Theirs is a tender, romantic and loving partnership of equals, and perhaps symbolises one of the ideals of family life which other star sign compatibility pairings aspire to.
Granted there isn’t all that much excitement, risk or deliberate chaos in this partnership. Domestic bliss is all very well, but not everyone’s cup of tea. Others may find this couple slightly boring or pedestrian – but when more explosive relationships have come and gone, who will be the elderly couple holding hands in the rain? Taurus/Cancer. Compatibility like that is priceless, and each of this couple will happily eschew a wilder life in favour of this stable, balanced and deeply loving bond. For their lucky children, the Lover and the Homemaker really do make an unbeatable combination.
