Taurus and Leo Compatibility: The Lover and the Royal

Something about this relationship always puts me in mind of European kings and their sophisticated courtesans. A Leo of either sex is regal by nature, and a Taurus of either sex loves the good life, so this is a promising match. Taurus and Leo compatibility ensure a joyful, loving and flamboyant relationship, with Leo’s generosity definitely turning Taurus’ head.

Actually, both Taurus and Leo are quite demanding personalities, and both expect a great deal from their lovers. Leo in particular insists upon being adored, while Taurus insists on a comfortable lifestyle. In as much as they will enjoy the high life together, this would make a good marriage of convenience for the pair – but fortunately there is much more depth to it than that. Taurus and Leo compatibility can be scorching hot when times are good. Leo is captivated by Taurean sensuality, while Taurus loves the way that Leo can make him or her feel special.

With Leo ruled by the Sun, symbolising life itself, and Taurus ruled by romantic Venus, the astrological compatibility between this couple is off to a good start. Their shared love of luxury and comfort will certainly play a part, but for Leo and Taurus compatibility is also characterised by loyalty and fidelity. So far so good.

However, both of these signs are fixed signs. For this couple, change is a thing to be avoided at all costs. When you add in the stubbornness of Taurus and the pride of Leo, it seems that this partnership will hold onto their relationship even throughout the worst of times – and even when the relationship is destructive. Even if it all goes horribly wrong, admitting that a mistake has been made is hard for both Taurus and Leo; compatibility in good times won’t save this couple from a long, painfully drawn out breakdown should push come to shove.

But what could cause this outwardly compatible pair to disintegrate anyway? The key lies in knowing that both Leo and Taurus are very wilful signs. Each wants to get their own way – and will sulk, manipulate and generally refuse to give in until their will is done. When this stubborn couple clashes, the battles can rage for ever and a day. Even if one partner finally has the sense to compromise, bearing grudges is a speciality for Taurus and Leo; compatibility may never recover to its fullest extent, and both partners will find it hard not to refer back to the sore points of an argument at (many) a later date.

Taurus is an earth sign, and it’s worth remembering that earth can be scorched by fire. In the long term, Leo’s fiery passion and emotional demands may be simply too much for Taurus, who just wants a peaceful life. Don’t forget either, however, that fire can be put out by earth. If the Taurus partner has the upper hand and is forever dampening Leo’s enthusiasm for life, Leo may just discover that the magic is fading fast. Taurus and Leo compatibility, for all its positives, can be a treacherous balancing act when two strong wills compete. Without compromise and deliberate efforts to work with one another, a battle for domination can result which will never be resolved to either partner’s satisfaction.

Of course, every relationship has its potential pitfalls. Essentially though, romance is a good fit for Leo and Taurus. Compatibility of interests and lifestyles mean that by and large this is a relationship filled with flamboyant pleasures, trust and generosity of spirit. For the mythological Lover and Royal, happiness can indeed be everlasting – provided the Taurus Lover remembers who, exactly, is in charge, and provided the Leo royalty remembers to indulge the courtesan’s sensual side.

  1. A taurus woman likes privacy and enjoys distance relationship. They are always neat. Taurus woman do not like demanding from anyone she is in relationship. But if they meet Libra, they usually want to have Libra attention.

  2. This is a great article. I’ve just broken up with me leo women, well at least thats what I was trying to do before she rebroke-up with me. I get the feeling that tomorrow we will be back together, and a similar thing will happen another time. I would ask her to read this article but I know she will never allow herself to be changed by some silly article on the internet. Especially because I’m the one who recommended it. Not because she doesn’t trust anything I subscribe to her but only because she refuses to appear or admit that she could be wrong about something and my recommendation of this article would appear ,to her, that I may be right. Not too sure what to do here…

    • Hey this sounds like my situation… so did yall break up again?

  3. Im a leo woman and I think you should show her the article! If she reads it maybe she will change her mind by knowing all the good things both of you have to offer to the relationship

  4. I am noticibke taurus and this article has helped me and my friend bond even thiugh we r not dating we have gotten closer we did just have a fight as well

  5. Im a leo woman dating a tarus man and i must say that the passion between us is unreal!!! The way he kisses and touches me I makes me shiver inside and melt. I love his voice when he’s making love to me and I feel like even tho we have our disputes he’s the only one for me. We don’t wanna ever end what we have and soon possibly get married one day Taurus men ooze sex appeal. I can get lost in his eyes forever.

  6. wow is all i can when its bad its real bad , but when its good its great …I’m a taurus female and he’s the leo …he’s very sensitive to my words and it causes issues i have to learn to be a little bit more compassionate guess

  7. same for me I’m the Taurus female my man is the Leo both very passionate when we do everything hard when we live we love hard when we hate we hate hard this relationship has seen so many break ups and make ups every time there’s a break up it always feels like the last then we’re together again right now we’re fighting I’m fighting for more attention but right now it seems he’s cheating I’m so use to having him all over me that once the fighting began I haven’t tried to get him back it’s been 2 weeks with him on the couch I’ve been very emotional a part of me wants to rip his clothes off and the other part wants to beat his ass up he’s been very distant someone tell me what’s wrong with him is he finally done or is he cheating he’s cheated in the past ….. I’m starting to want to look for attention elsewhere ..

  8. Im leo woman. He broke up with saying that im not capable.

  9. So true since day 1 chemistry, love, loyalness and passion. Nothing better then a Leo and Taurus.

  10. I have just started dating a tarus male im a leo female .this article has really opened. My eyes to how he behaves. But now I know why maybe I need to be more patient lol x

  11. I’m a female Taurus having been in relationships with Scorpio, Taurus, Pisces, Virgo, and Cancer. All supposed to be my best matches…None of these were healthy relationships. My latest is a Leo and this seems to be far and away my best relationship to date. It does not go unnoticed that my father is a Leo…hmmm…just an observation.

  12. I’m a Leo Woman and being with him is like a fairy tail …. I admit I’m more stubborn than he is and everytime we argue we make it up and become closer ,,, the Leo is the crazy one when their mad so it’ll be better to be a Leo woman because the Leo man can get very physical I agree with everything in this horoscope !!!

  13. I’m a leo and my partner is a taurus, we’re on and off every other week it seems. She’s very stubborn and can be insensitive, however she’s also giving to a fault and would do anything for me. We literally love each other one day and hate each other the next. She says that I’m clingy and I overthink everything. Which is true, but I can switch my affections very quickly, thus I try to keep my focus on her or else my eyes will wander and I genuinely care about my taurus, I don’t want to lose the fire for our relationship.Though she wants to get married I have major reservations. We’ve known each other a while but have only been dating six months…I think I must exercise patience, I believe she lacks the will or maturity to do this. I will also give her some space, so she doesn’t feel smothered. This article was insightful.

  14. I was with one Taurus, biggest waste of time. Let alone he had a huge problem with drinking and keeping his flame going. Good lord what a waste. I am sun/mars conjunct in Leo and I simply need for more passion that this sign can provide.

  15. What love my lady Taurus female ….omg …ruff….

  16. I’m a leo woman I’m dating a Taurus , I love him very much , but he’s always out with his friends , & I don’t get to talk to him as much when he out with them , but when ever he goes back home he calls me /: , I love him so much I just wish he wasn’t always so busy , when we talk to each other he makes me feel like a princess , & He makes me feel like the most beautiful girl in the world . I like the feeling of having his attention , but when he be with his brothers/friends I don’t hear from him & that’s what makes me want to move on . and I’m trying so hard to have patience , cause I love him , from how he treats me he seems like a good guy , even when I’ve said things during arguments he’s never said anything disrespectful , he never called me out my name or anything . And I never felt so beautiful when I’m around him . I’m trying to stay around longer for him. But I hope I’m not waisting my time

  17. I’m a Taurus chick dating a Leo guy & yes. Soo much love & fiery passion in our relationship & sometimes bitter war, but what all you Leo cuntys out there must remember, were still sensitive & I still remember every horrible thing said & done to me by my lover (Forgive but never forget, & I’m sure most taurus women will agree aswell) but regardless, its love & worth the pain 😐 x
