Love, Zodiac

Loyal, luxurious Taurus needs someone to share all of life's riches.

Studying your own zodiac sign is a good way to start learning all the details about the type of person who makes a great partner for you. And when it comes to the zodiac signs who are most compatible with Taurus, it should be no surprise the kind of person they attract, especially considering what their horoscope has to say.

Taurus is ruled by Venus, which we all know is the planet of romantic love and beauty. But did you also know that Venus is associated with financial wealth?

The sign of Taurus is associated with the Second House in the Zodiac chart, which rules all the earthly pleasures: wealth, property, sensuality, and physical boundaries. Taurus is stubborn and possessive, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

They’re driven to protect their property and their loved ones, and if luxury and security are important to you, you couldn’t ask for a better mate. Taurus loves to collect beautiful things, to invest in the future, and to share everything with the people they love most.

Your zodiac sign presents a general overview of your personality, but when you’re looking for love, it helps to know what’s going on in your Seventh House. This segment shows the type of person you have the best zodiac compatibility with. And the positions of your natal Venus and Mars have a lot to do with your love life, too.

If you’ve already got someone in mind, or if you’re wondering what type of person you should be focusing on, here’s how each of the zodiac signs matches up romantically with Taurus.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

The Taurus-Aries couple might take a little while to get used to each other, but once they get comfortable, they’re fantastic together. Just remember, Taurus, that even though you want to protect Aries, they won’t stand for anyone trying to control them.

Aries can’t live without action and adventure. Taurus is like a beacon of stability and comfort that they’ll always return to.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

The Taurus-Taurus couple is one of the strongest pairings of the Zodiac, if they can agree to put any power struggles aside and work together.

Taurus wants to be the boss of their own turf, and it’s hard for them to share the throne. There are bound to be some confrontations and head-butting at first, but when these two finally become a united front, nothing can threaten them or their property.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

The Taurus-Gemini couple are going to have to learn how to show love in ways that the other understands. Taurus craves physical touch, while Gemini needs intellectual stimulation. Another challenge is Gemini’s flightiness: Taurus expects undying loyalty, and even if Gemini is faithful, they can’t help flirting.

Eventually, Taurus develops trust issues, and Gemini gets tired of feeling like they’re being held in a gilded cage. These two are going to have to make a lot of compromises if it’s going to work out.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

These two are very well-suited for each other. Cancer loves nothing better than feeling safe and protected at home, and Taurus appreciates someone who places so much personal value on their physical treasures.

Practical Taurus might have to learn to open up a little, since Cancer’s approach is emotional and intuitive. By the same token, Cancer will have to learn that not everything involves multiple layers of feeling — sometimes what you see on the surface really is all there is to it.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

The Taurus-Leo couple will quickly find themselves in a competition, as both think of themselves as “King” or “Queen.” Expect a lot of stubborn stand-offs and refusals to compromise even a little bit.

If anything is going to save this relationship, it will be their shared love of art, beauty, and creativity. They may never develop the type of gentle intimacy that we associate with romance, but there’s a great deal of mutual respect here, and it’s very possible that they can build something great together.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

On the surface, this couple seems a bit bland and boring. But if these two can open up enough when they’re alone, the Taurus-Virgo couple could enjoy one of the hottest, most satisfying relationships anyone could ask for.

Peace-loving and loyal, they’re extremely compatible both physically and emotionally — if they can be bothered to pursue it. The problem when two Earth signs get together is that they just don’t tend to be very good at sharing emotions. Virgo is on particularly shaky ground here, so Taurus is going to have to patiently take the lead.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

The planet Venus rules both Taurus and Libra, and both of these signs exhibit different sides of this planet’s romantic energy. This doesn’t guarantee they’ll be happy together for very long, though.

See, Libra loves everyone, constantly triggering Taurus’ jealous streak. Both of these signs tend to be a little insecure, too, so they’ll always be questioning themselves, each other, their relationship. The Taurus-Libra couple are likely to drift apart before they drive each other crazy.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

For two signs who place such a high value on loyalty, the Taurus-Scorpio couple have a lot to learn when it comes to trusting each other. Scorpio doesn’t trust anyone at first. And when they suspect, they may start acting suspicious themselves, setting off Taurus’ red flags, then they start to act strange.

If they can get past this awkward stage and become truly comfortable with each other, their romantic relationship is sure to become the stuff of legend.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

The Taurus-Sagittarius romance is a lot of fun... for a little while. It’s hard to stay together for long when Taurus can’t understand why Sagittarius won’t sit still and focus, and Sagittarius is so easily bored by Taurus’ predictable routine.

They have a lot to offer each other at first, and will probably remain great friends throughout their lives, but there’s not a lot there to hold them together in a committed relationship.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

The Taurus-Capricorn couple might not be able to satisfy each other emotionally or sexually, but when it comes to getting things done, they have the potential to build an empire together. These two make great business partners. Romance? Not so much.

The possibility is there, though, if they’re both willing to take some emotional risks and tell each other exactly what they really want. These two signs are devoted and loyal, and likely to try their best to make the other happy, if they know what needs to be done.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Let’s be honest: there is not a lot of common ground here. Taurus likes to set boundaries and follow a routine, while Aquarius’ very nature is that of chaos and change. Taurus is materialistic, grounded, and possessive; Aquarius values ideas and can’t stand to be tied down.

They might be able to appreciate each other’s physical beauty and intellectual perspectives, but over the long-term? They’re just likely to confuse each other more than anything else.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

The honesty and heartfelt emotional connection that the Taurus-Pisces couple enjoys is truly touching. Taurus helps keep Pisces’ feet on the ground, Pisces shows Taurus how beautiful it can be to stick one’s head in the clouds now and then.

Pisces’ imagination is an inspiration for Taurus, who loves being privy to all those secret visions. The only challenge here is Pisces’ shifting nature, but if Taurus can roll with these changes, and if Pisces can respect Taurus’ need to know what’s going on, these two are likely to share a long, beautiful life together.
