The Best and Worst Lovers for Taurus

For Taurus, horoscope compatibility requires a partner who is willing to offer security and physical affection, and who can keep Taurus in a comfortable lifestyle. When it comes to star signs, compatibility ratings are only a generalised guide, but just for fun here’s a look at some of the best (and worst) zodiac sign matches for earthy Taurus.

Terrific Compatibility with Taurus

The signs which enjoy best compatibility with Taurus tend to be earth signs (with some reservations) and water signs. Earth signs share similar values to Taurus, while water signs are generally non-threatening to Taurus’ need for safety, and help to channel deeply held emotions and to lighten up the Taurean imagination.

1 – Taurus and Virgo

Two earth signs together can be a staid and stuck in the mud combination, but it works for Taurus and Virgo. This sweet, romantic and old fashioned relationship is rooted in shared values, dignity and hard work.

2 – Taurus and Pisces

Sharing a karmic bond, Taurus and Pisces are just what each other needs and deserves. While Taurus provides a rock of common sense which Pisces can cling to when overwhelmed by worries, Pisces provides the imagination and sensitivity sometimes missing in the Taurus horoscope; compatibility thrives between this pair, much to the surprise of onlookers.

3 – Taurus and Capricorn

Another earth-earth combination, but this one works because Capricorn is a cardinal sign and will take action to keep the partnership moving forwards. In the Taurus horoscope, compatibility over life goals is essential, and this couple agree on all the important things. A surprisingly sexy partnership too, this one, with sensuality only increasing as the couple mature together.


Astrological Nightmare Relationships for Taurus

By and large, Taurus struggles most with fire signs and air signs. Fire signs are a little too “in your face” and impulsive for staid Taurus, while air signs are just on a different thought level altogether, and too eager for action and frivolity.

1 – Taurus and Aquarius

Two fixed signs battling it out head to head – Taurus horoscope compatibility with Aquarius is never going to be an easy ride and frankly, is often a complete mess. This is a relationship built on mutual annoyance. Taurus hates change, Aquarius drives change – it’s just not going to work out without an awful lot of work on both parts.

2 – Taurus and Gemini

Another earth-air combination, but this one struggles for different reasons than Taurus-Aquarius. Gemini and Taurus simply don’t understand one another very well, and tend to communicate in different ways. Gemini’s lively nature will only provoke the jealousy and possessiveness that is rooted in the Taurus horoscope; compatibility here will be punctuated by outbursts and rows.

3 – Taurus and Sagittarius

What can you say about this partnership? Possibly the most cautious sign in the zodiac, meeting up with probably the most adventurous. It’s a mismatch of security versus risk taking, and it’s often not pretty for either partner. Taurus horoscope compatibility depends a little too much on getting his or her own way to really cope with the free spirited Sagittarius on a long term basis.

These star signs compatibility ratings are purely for entertainment – always remember that astrology compatibility is more complicated than Sun sign matches or mismatches.

  1. Aquarians and Gemini have been my nemesis every time. They are copy cats and copy what you do, pull you down, think bland ordinary is gorgeous and hate anything unusual beautiful, hate you getting compliments, are physically and mentally cruel and abusive and drive you to suicidal feelings. Cold, changeable and self absorbed, arrogant and empty. Women are masculine looking and the men womanly. They delight in attacking you. They lie cheat and backstab. Tell you you are thick, like a frog, ugly etc when you are not. Put everything first apart from you. Laugh if you help people. Psychologically disturbed and control freaks. Absolutely awful.

    • Whoa! Feel better now? Lol…sounds like you’re dumping a lot of qualities of a couple personalities into the vast expanse of “all”….

  2. When I look at Virgo on paper they seem like a nightmare but for some reason I just get along with them so well it’s ridiculous. I feel Pisces and Cancer are good matches too.

    Worst matches are definately Aquarius and Gemini. I don’t get along with them at all.

  3. Just to say I’m a middle-of-june Gemini (june 10th) but my moon is in Taurus, hence I’m reading this page (my ascendant is also earth sign, Capricorn) Personally I think the moon makes a huge difference because I’m normally the “mother” of the group and quite attracted to earth sign people in general, and we all get along great =)

    Also I would never even dream of backstabbing people and absolutely despise gossiping. I know 2 other Geminis like this too, one is a friend who is waaay quiet and introverted, smart and adores reading (june 13th) Another is my brother (june 19th, Cancer cusp) who also has his moon in an earth sign (Capricorn) and we’re both homely, family oriented, devoted and loyal. I do know 2 middle-age Gemini women born may-june cusp (Gemini-Taurus people) and they too show strong Taurus familiy-devotion and loyalty despite being labelled as the most mutable sign possible. One is my aunty who actually married my Taurus uncle!

    And just to illustrate how messy the only-sun-sign readings can be, the biggest two-faced lying piece of garbage I’ve ever known in my whole life is my father…and he is a Taurus, yep. Compared with my humble Taurus uncle there are MAJOR differences.

    I would say the 3 qualities I value the most (holding it in both other people and myself) would be: Stability, Devotion, and Loyalty above all else.

    p.s- on a side note, although I’m an air-sign Gemini, I do find it hard at times with Aquarius people too haha, both girls and boys. Prefer an earth-sign buddy over them any day~~~

  4. I am a Taurus my best match is cancer, Virgo. I have not been with Pisces but sounds like a good match. Aquarius is the worst Match by far and then Gemini. Never thought I would get married but I have met my cancer lady all up hill. Love this page
