Studying your own zodiac sign is a good way to learn all the details about the type of person who makes a great partner for you. And when it comes to the Taurus compatibility chart, the kind of person they attract should be no surprise.

Taurus Compatibility: Overview

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

Taurus is associated with the Second House in the zodiac chart, which rules all the earthly pleasures: wealth, property, sensuality, and physical boundaries.

What makes someone a good or bad match for a Taurus?

Taurus is stubborn and possessive, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. They’re driven to protect their property and their loved ones. If luxury and security are important to you, you couldn’t ask for a better partner.

Taurus loves to collect beautiful things, invest in the future, and share everything with the people they love most. And their ideal match would have these qualities in common.

Taurus Compatibility With Each Of The 12 Zodiac Signs

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 your zodiac sign measures up.

Taurus and Aries

Love: The Taurus/Aries couple might take a little while to get used to each other, but once they get comfortable, they’re a fantastic couple.

Aries can’t live without action and adventure, while Taurus is like a beacon of stability and comfort they’ll always return to. Even though Taurus wants to protect Aries, they won’t stand for anyone trying to control them.

Sex: Both of these signs are sensual, but have different ideals when it comes to the physical act of sex.

Taurus focuses on the pleasure of themselves and their partner, not really caring much about the end goal. On the other hand, Aries lacks the emotional and passionate approach that Taurus desires.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: For a marriage or long-term relationship to succeed, Taurus and Aries need to get on the same level.

At the beginning of a relationship, Taurus’ stubbornness and Aries’ need for adventure can cause discord; however, once each respects and appreciates the qualities of one another, they are a great complement to each other.

Taurus and Taurus

Love: Out of all the pairings in astrology, a Taurus/Taurus couple is one of the strongest. That is, 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.

Sex: The benefit of two Taureans in bed together is that they know what the other wants sexually.

Taurus craves touch and is very sensual, and having a partner who not only has that but is also gentle and giving, makes for strong sexual compatibility.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: Above all, Taurus wants a partner who shares their values, and a relationship or marriage between these two signs is built to last.

They know the needs of each other, and rise to the occasion to fulfill them. A problem can arise, however, due to their stubborn nature, and can only be successful if they don’t wait on the other to make the first move in all aspects of love.

Taurus and Gemini

Love: A Taurus/Gemini couple has much to learn about how to show love in ways the other understands.

Taurus craves physical touch, while Gemini needs intellectual stimulation. Gemini is flighty, while Taurus expects undying loyalty.

Sex: A sensual Earth sign and an Air sign don't care about an emotional connection — what could go wrong?

Since Taurus wants physical touch and intimacy, and Gemini could do without any semblance of emotional attachment, these two signs are much too different to have a strong sexual relationship.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: Even if Gemini is faithful in a marriage, they can’t help but flirt with others, which is not something Taurus will put up with.

Eventually, Taurus will develop trust issues, and Gemini will become 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.

Taurus and Cancer

Love: Taurus and Cancer are very well-suited for each other.

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.

Sex: For Taurus, sex is about pleasure; for Cancer, sex is about intimate connection.

Luckily, Taurus and Cancer have very high sexual compatibility, since Taurus’ need for stimulated senses and Cancer’s need for relaxed interaction work well together. The only problem is that these two don’t have a strong sexual drive, so as long as there are no issues initiating sex, the trust and connection are there.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: When Cancer and Taurus fall in love, their relationship is based on tenderness and their shared need for understanding.

Each tends to be open and forgiving, meaning any problems that arise in their marriage can be settled without fear of a breakup. 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.

Taurus and Leo

Love: The Taurus/Leo couple will quickly find themselves in a competition, as both think of themselves as King or Queen.

Both are Fixed signs, meaning they love tradition and routine, but couldn’t be more different from each other. They have the capability, to be honest with one another, but will find trouble with having patience.

Sex: Taurus and Leo have a medium level of sexual compatibility, mainly because of their passive attitudes.

Each wants the other to satisfy them but tends to be lazy when not motivated. Despite this, they can have a fulfilling sexual relationship if there is excitement, and knowing their own personal desires and needs.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: Expect a lot of stubborn stand-offs and refusals to compromise even a little bit with a Taurus/Leo relationship.

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 they can build something great together.

Taurus and Virgo

Love: Peace-loving and loyal, a Taurus/Virgo couple is extremely compatible both physically and emotionally.

That is, if they can be bothered to pursue it. But Taurus compatibility with Virgo faces challenges when two Earth signs get together, in that they just don’t tend to be very good at sharing emotions.

Sex: Taurus tends to give their sexual partner a calming experience in the bedroom, focusing on physical pleasure above all else.

This is refreshing for Virgo, who struggles to express themselves sexually. If Virgo can quiet that analytical voice in their head, they can open up a world of great satisfaction.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: On the surface, the Taurus/Virgo couple seems a bit bland and boring.

And since Virgo is on particularly shaky ground, Taurus will have to patiently take the lead. But if these two can open up enough when they’re alone, they can enjoy one of the hottest, most satisfying relationships anyone could ask for, leading to a long-lasting marriage.

Taurus and Libra

Love: The planet Venus rules Taurus and Libra, and both of these signs exhibit different sides of this planet’s romantic energy.

A Taurus's compatibility with Libra 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, and their relationship.

Sex: Taurus wants to feel comfortable and catered to during sex, and while Libra is gentle with their sexual partners, they can run into trouble when it comes to understanding what the other wants. If they can learn to be patient, there’s a chance of a somewhat satisfactory relationship here.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: While Taurus and Libra have many things in common with their shared hobbies and interests, and have an appreciation for the beauty of the world, this couple is likely to drift apart before they drive each other crazy. Without warmth and understanding, a long-lasting relationship cannot happen.

Taurus and Scorpio

Love: A relationship between Taurus and Scorpio should be based on a deep romantic connection, or else they may never leave the friendship stage. While Taurus can easily capture Scorpio’s attention, their shared qualities of being stubborn and jealous can lead to a lack of trust.

Sex: Their attraction to each other is high, and since both are sexual creatures by nature, sex between these signs can become emotional. Taurus wants their needs met, and Scorpio is more than happy to do this, as long as Taurus is open to trying new things, and Scorpio remains gentle.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: For two signs who place such a high value on loyalty, Taurus's compatibility with Scorpio means this 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 suspiciously themselves, setting off Taurus’ red flags, and then Taurus starts 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 legendary.

Taurus and Sagittarius

Love: 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. Taurus is set in their ways and will not take to Sagittarius’ need to change constantly.

Sex: Taurus and Sagittarius’ low sexual compatibility is mainly due to Sagittarius’ attitude in the bedroom.

Neither understands the needs of one another, and in the event of a rare sexual connection between these two, it would only be possible if Taurus becomes less rigid and Sagittarius learns to slow down and appreciate physical pleasure.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: 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.

There is a chance of a long-lasting relationship or even marriage if they start as friends and build a deeper connection over years, or even decades.

Taurus and Capricorn

Love: The Taurus/Capricorn couple might not be able to satisfy each other emotionally, but when it comes to getting things done, they have the potential to build an empire together.

If there is a sense of motivation from Taurus, and excitement from Capricorn, there is potential. These two would also make great business partners if there is no romance.

Sex: Both zodiac signs find it hard to open themselves up and be vulnerable, which can cause problems in bed.

Taurus wants a tender approach, while Capricorn is highly attracted to physical activity, but they can form a strong sexual bond if they respect each other’s individual needs.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: The possibility of a strong marriage is there, but only if they’re both willing to take emotional risks and tell each other exactly what they really want.

These two signs are devoted and loyal and are likely to try their best to make the other happy. That is if they know what needs to be done.

Taurus and Aquarius

Love: There is not a lot of common ground in a Taurus/Aquarius match.

Taurus likes to set boundaries and follow a routine, while Aquarius’s 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.

Sex: Taurus, who is all about a slow and gentle approach to sex, is completely turned off by Aquarius’ distant nature.

Because there is a lack of creativity between these two in the bedroom, there is a low chance of sexual compatibility. The only way to find pleasure with one another is if Taurus teaches Aquarius what they want, and Aquarius puts in even an ounce of energy.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: They might be able to appreciate each other’s physical beauty and intellectual perspectives, but over the long-term? It’s not likely.

While both Taurus and Aquarius have in common their tendency to march to the beat of their own drum, they’re just bound to confuse each other more than anything else.

Taurus and Pisces

Love: The honest and heartfelt emotional connection of a Taurus/Pisces couple is truly touching.

Taurus helps keep Pisces’ feet on the ground, and 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.

Sex: Taurus's compatibility with Pisces shows in the bedroom, and as a sexually compatible pair, the two inspire one another on a deep, emotional level.

Water sign Pisces is captivated by a tender sexual experience, which is exactly what Taurus wants and gives. This match can lead to intense sex, leaving both partners extremely satisfied.

Long-term Relationships and Marriage: Both zodiac signs can have a loving relationship, as each highly values romance, beauty, and the idea of love itself.

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.
