Scorpio and Taurus Compatibility: The Sorcerer and the Lover

For Scorpio and Taurus, compatibility is desperately dramatic, hauntingly intense and poisonously potent. These two signs are opposite one another in the zodiac and in theory they fit very well together, like two halves of a heart. In practice, however, these powerful personalities – much as they are drawn to one another – find it difficult to cope with one another on a long term basis.

Taurus, the Lover, is down to earth, sensual, romantic and, crucially, open and honest with his or her feelings. The Scorpio Sorcerer is easily more than a match for Taurus sexually, but masks his or her whirlwind of emotions with a mysterious and inscrutable mask. For Taurus, love compatibility involves trust and transparency, but for Scorpio, secrecy is an inherent part of life. The mythical Sorcerer won’t want his or her mysteries offered up by Taurus for the world to see, so the archetypal Lover will have to learn to accept some element of emotional withholding from Scorpio. Scorpio and Taurus compatibility has to overcome this fundamental difference in approaches to life – and that’s only the fist hurdle.

To be sure, there is a tremendous attraction between these two individuals. Together, they can take one another to heaven, hell or (frequently) both. It’s a highly sexual partnership, and also a very private one – although Taurus believes in open communication, he or she will be as keen as Scorpio is to keep their bedroom activities away from the rest of the world (if only because the rest of the world will think they’re exaggerating anyway…). Scorpio and Taurus compatibility is about more than just sex, though. Both partners are exceedingly possessive and jealous – but here’s the thing: in this powerful and potentially destructive relationship, either partner may deliberately provoke the jealousy of the other, in order to reassure themselves how much they are loved. This is heady stuff and not always healthy for either partner psychologically.

Because both zodiac signs are fixed signs, both Scorpio and Taurus will hold onto their opinions for dear life, with neither willing to compromise or back down. When they clash on day to day issues, the fights can be epic and frightening in their intensity. Onlookers could be forgiven for wondering how on earth the relationship could ever be patched up again after what they’ve witnessed – but before you know it, with smouldering sex on the agenda, this couple will be back in one another’s arms. Don’t make the mistake of thinking they’ve forgiven each other, though. For Scorpio and Taurus, compatibility means never having to say you’re sorry….but never forgetting a grudge either.

Although the Taurus partner will often appear to win an argument, through sheer force of will, it’s actually the Sorcerer who pulls the strings in this relationship. Out-manoeuvred by Taurus intransigence, Scorpio will resort to clandestine manipulation, emotional blackmail or even petty spite behind the scenes. The Scorpio Sorcerer is not an enemy you want to have, but star sign compatibility pits the Taurean Lover against this powerful force. Taurus, more so than most signs, can win Scorpio over by helping Scorpio to trust and to believe. Scorpio and Taurus compatibility, held together always by that sexual chemistry, can also grow into a positive force for good once Scorpio realises that Taurus isn’t going anywhere. Once Scorpio understands the constancy of Taurus’ love, compatibility will deepen.

As an earth and water combination, this couple can be good for one another, in small doses. When the relationship is working well, earthy Taurus can help to calm the boiling whirlpool or Scorpio emotions, while Scorpio can help Taurus move past logic and common sense into a more ethereal world of emotional possibilities. It’s a complex dynamic, however, and all too often this more positive side of Scorpio and Taurus compatibility is lost amid the drama, the passion, the intensity and the pain.

Definitely a life changing relationship, this is a partnership which will leave its mark on both Scorpio and Taurus. They may rapidly learn to hate one another, almost as fast as they fell in love in the first place – but can they live without one another? Such is the magnetism, an almost fatal attraction, that this couple will emerge from this relationship as changed people, however brief its lifetime.

    • I had the same type of boyfriend! Always manipulative and turning things around on me all the time (I’m the taurus).

It can be very toxic but at first it was so incredible and we were very compatible

  3. I am a Scorpio and my boyfriend is a Taurus. We argue more when we are apart, and hate being apart. We can both admit that we cannot stand the other at times, but would hate for the other to leave their side. He exhibits little trust in me, because he believes I hide things from him and am sneaky. Staying together has not been easy, we have had our rough times, as most couples do. We have the same idea for our future, but he believes that we should take it one day at a time rather than me getting lost in a fantasy. When we argue, it’s the worse. Nothing gets resolved, it’s better that we calm down then later make up, that way we are able to make more rational decisions. I like to take charge and dominate and he was more nonchalant, but I guess he has gotten tired of my masculine ways and has started putting his foot down. I don’t mind, I enjoy him stepping up and being in control. &The sex is amazing, I constantly have urges and he sure knows how to satisfy them. I love him so much and cannot wait to see what our future has in store.

  6. I’m a Taurus or an aires-taurus cusp I believe. And my boyfriend is a Scorpio. We actually compliment each other very well. We both get jealous sometimes but both are very much on the same page almost all the time and have the same views on almost everything . We don’t really argue much, but when we do have our momentsite we usually just talk things out. But the attraction is spot on. I have never fallen for someone so quickly. Though we have been friends for years before even thinking about actually being in a relationship together.

  7. My son’s dad is a scorpio. He was so manipulative he was controlling demanding he was mean. Very Very jealous and possessive. Everything that i just read is so true about a taurus and scorpio lover from the beginning till the end my son’s dad and i definitely cant stand his ass.

  8. I am a Taurus woman! I have been with my scorpio love for a short time but we have gone through all these phases very quickly. The overly possessive moments which i hated so much i felt i couldnt Go anywhere or speak to anyone. Over time its a trait i learned to adore being possessed is something i actually always wanted,knowing i am his sun and moon makes me grin. The sneaky manipulative ways which were just to see how jealous i would get and How id react to it. Our passion overrides all of the b.s though. Our sex life is oneness,through our passion we gained deeper Connection And we are truly soulmates. He makes me feel like the sexiest most desired thing in this world!! At first glance i was ready to run but the bull in me never backed down, just as a woman id do things calmly. I say the best way is to let him feel like the king and this is a relationship that can last a lifetime. Hard work and headache as a earth sign in dont budge but i left is flows of emotion hit me like the wave of sexiness he is. I love my scorpion King!!! my sexy man

  9. Everything about this article is totally accurate and correct. I am Taurus and my ex girlfriend is Scorpio. We have the same likes and dislike yet we fights alot. We are currently apart now and she is now with someone else and so am i, but i just can’t love again like i love her and we both can’t stay away from each other. We still have sex and misses each other. Thats the best relationship i have ever had.
