Last Updated on October 24, 2022

If you are lucky enough to have a Taurus in your life, then you already know what I am about to tell you.

Smart, friendly, and down to earth, the Taurus is a likely partner-in-conversation for just about anything from serious life advice to humorous banter.

Those born under the sign of Taurus are known throughout the zodiac as being trustworthy and dependable.

They come through in the clutch. Add in some friendliness and warmth for good seasoning and you got yourself a bull.

Ruled by Venus, the planet of love, it is not unheard of for the Taurus to partake in sensuality, even hedonism.

However, the bull seems to keep it in check, being well-grounded, practical, and focused on achieving its goals.

As a fixed sign, the Taurus is driven and determined.

They also have a reputation for being stubborn and even quick to temper, but let’s be clear here, you did not hear that from me.
The Taurus is usually hardworking and committed. From love to career, they seem to know what they want and are fueled by stars to go and get it.

Below is everything you need to know about which zodiac signs are best and least suited for Taurus compatibility based on sun signs alone.

For the most accurate description of good compatible matchups, it is important to understand your complete natal chart.

The Best Matches For Taurus Compatibility

Compatibility with Taurus is the best with their fellow earth signs who all value hard work, goals, and staying at home together.

The Taurus can be a winning combo with two of the sensitive and intelligent water signs as we will see below.

Since we’re talking about romantic connections here, if your Taurus man in question also has Venus, the planet of love in his chart then I recommend you also read our article here on the Venus in Taurus traits.

Taurus and Capricorn

The Capricorn and Taurus compatibility match is known as the power couple of the zodiac, hence, they care great soulmates.

Both hardworking, intelligent, and friendly signs, these two in love could take over the world if they desired to.

If the bull wanted a run for their money concerning stubbornness, Capricorn the goat can deliver.

This is a good thing, though. Both the Taurus and the Capricorn understand that the whole “stubborn” thing is an unfair critique anyway.

They both know that it is their devotion and commitment that people mistake stubbornness for.

And this devotion? Well, it is for their friends, loved ones, family, careers, and goals in life.

In my opinion, things that are well-worth being stubborn for and Capricorn/Taurus connection is excellent because these two share the same values.

The Capricorn is a bit more driven than the Taurus, who does not complain about taking it easy and indulging occasionally. The Capricorn digs all of that too.

So, when the more dominant and driven goat tires themselves out in the endless pursuit of achieving their goals, the sensual Taurus will be right there with dinner on the stove, the candles lit, and a good movie on deck.

Taurus and Virgo

The Taurus is sweet, and the Virgo is sensitive, no two sun signs could be more nurturing of each other.

Both signs are practical and hardworking and these two likely share the same priorities: loyalty to their partner, family, career, and staying at home.

Taurus with Virgo works so well because of some of the contrast between the two signs and the balance that they feed each other.

The Taurus is fixed and grounded. The bull is self-assured and proud. On the other hand, Virgo is a mutable sign who is known for being critical and sometimes goes off the deep end with worry.

In this harmoniously balanced relationship, the bull shows the over-analytical Virgo how to stay grounded and the Virgo keeps the Taurus in check when they go off into over-indulgence.

The Virgo knows how to get things done and will help the Taurus to focus and make their dreams into a reality.

In the bedroom, the Taurus will be much more open, as a sensual and physical sun sign. The Virgo is much more subdued.

This sun sign relationship is built on loyalty, so this is a good yin and yang balance if both parties share that deep connection.

Taurus and Cancer

What happens when two possessive, yet devoted sun signs meet and fall in love? They give each other fully to one another.

This could be seen rather remarkably in the Taurus/Cancer bond.

These two are domesticated, stable, and forward-looking.

They are alike in pretty much every way with only one real big difference: Taurus is an earth sign, and Cancer is a water sign.

What this means in broad terms is that while the Taurus lives through analyzing and rationalizing, the Cancer exists mostly through their emotions and intuition.

The Taurus thinks of every possible outcome to a decision while the Cancer goes off of feeling. This is also how the two primarily communicate as well.

If the above leads to any disagreements, it will be the many things that they agree on that will keep this couple together and the Cancer/Taurus going strong- mainly, staying at home.

Taurus and Cancer are the two most domesticated signs of the zodiac.

These two signs are extremely loyal and seek security. Both the Taurus and the Cancer are hardworking and goal-oriented.

This perfect alignment of values will leave this couple with little to squabble about, which is a good thing because both signs have hot tempers.

Taurus Compatibility With Pisces

If the Taurus has been wondering if there is any other sign out there that appreciates sensuality as much as they do, they need not look any further than Pisces- the most sensual of the zodiac.

The tough bull and the sensitive fish, who would have thought?

Just because the Pisces wear their feelings on their sleeve 24/7 and the stoic Taurus does not, really does not mean a thing.

The Taurus is pretty sensitive too and has a rich emotional life, even if they do not fully understand it.

Pisces is the ideal sun sign to help the Taurus get in touch with that side of themselves.

Both signs are intelligent homebodies who like to consume the finer things in life from the arts, cuisine, nature, music, books, and film.

Both the Taurus and Pisces love good conversation and humor.

The Pisces’ imagination will entertain and intrigue the Taurus to no end and in the bedroom Pisces’ intuition and Taurus sensuality together are dynamic.

All of this entirely depends on the specific Taurus and Pisces, of course. There is a chance that the two signs can over-indulge if not kept in check.

If both signs have it relatively together and are focused on their goals, then this is a beautiful, magical, almost physical relationship.

Worst Taurus Compatibility Matches

Some signs do not fare well with the Taurus romantically.

Taurus generally works the best with sun signs that share the same values. Some, like the sun signs below, have values that run counter to the Taurus’.

Taurus and Aquarius

Have you ever seen somebody kick over another person’s sandcastle at the beach? Maybe you have not but have seen a Taurus and Aquarius relationship. It is basically the same thing.

To better put this in perspective, imagine that the sandcastle is the Taurus’ need for comfort, stability, and security, and the foot that kicks it is everything about what the Aquarius represents.

The misunderstood Aquarius marches to the beat of their own drummer, and one could say that their objective in this life is to challenge traditions.

This means stability as we know it, something the Taurus looks for throughout their entire lives.

The Aquarius is off-beat and always playing with expansive and abstract ideas and has an alchemic way of bringing them into life.

The practical Taurus does not understand any of this at all and would much prefer to be with a more level-headed and down-to-earth person.

The Aquarius will have little interest in the Taurus anyway, as they see the bull as too materialistic and rigid.

Nothing about the Taurus will excite the Aquarius and vice-versa.

Taurus with Aquarius is not good. Both signs are extraordinary in their own right, but for a romantic relationship, they will do far better with a sun sign who shares their same values.

Taurus and Gemini

Taurus with Gemini is weak because the two signs have little in common.

In every aspect of their lives, The Taurus looks for stability like a heat-seeking missile. This is especially the case with their romantic involvement.

The Gemini is a free sign, not only because they are mutable, but the Gemini is particularly known to be flighty.

Maybe not in an ADD sort of way, but they do have this remarkable ability to jump from one thing to the next, often making decisions and taking actions at the drop of a dime.

The Taurus is much too grounded and cautious to understand the Gemini’s unpredictable ways.

In a sense, the double-sided and mutable Gemini (who is nicknamed “the twins”) may also have difficulty understanding why they do some of what they do as well.

Everything from activities to the conversation will go this way with the pair, leaving the Taurus desperately looking for some sense of routine and normalcy.

This is sure to bring out the stubbornness of the bull and the Gemini will think the Taurus takes everything too seriously.

Taurus and Sagittarius

Just because Taurus is ruled by the planet of love, Venus does not mean that their love is well-suited for everyone.

A connection with Sagittarius is not good for many reasons, most pronounced is their difference in values.

The fire sign of Sagittarius is explosive and daring, a complete extrovert and social butterfly.

Meanwhile, the more reserved Taurus tends to lean towards being an introvert.

This should not be a total dealbreaker, however, the ruling planet of Sagittarius is Jupiter, which represents travel and exploration.

Taurus is one of the most domesticated sun signs and Sagittarius natives would likely work for the airlines if they do not already.

The Sagittarius is all about freedom and at the end of the day, the Taurus would much rather just stay at home with their partner.

Taurus’s connection with Sagittarius is highly doubtful as both seem to be here on earth worth completely different missions and both signs are pretty steadfast about making them into a reality.

Taurus and Aries

Remember the sandcastle analogy from earlier? Let’s use that again here.

The sandcastle still represents the Taurus’ values and this time the foot that kicks it represents the Aries.

Unlike the Aquarius in the earlier scenario, who has their reason for kicking the sandcastle, the Aries kicks it just to kick it.
Aries, the aggressive young ram, thrives on conflict for conflict’s sake. The Taurus is hardworking and carefully constructs a comfortable, peaceful, and stable life for themselves.

Compatibility between Aries and Taurus tends to be a big negative. If this relationship even starts, to begin with, it will end pretty quickly in one of three ways:

1) The Taurus ignores the Aries’s constant challenges to fight them, in which case the Aries leaves to go find someone else that will fight them.

2) The Taurus thinks Aries is a bully, gets too stressed out, and then leaves.

3) The Aries pushes the Taurus just enough to bring out the bull’s famously bad, yet well-checked temper, and a fight that will end all fights ensues.

This locking of horns will likely be so bad that there cannot be any reconciliation ahead.

The Taurus Man

The Taurus man is stoic in every sense of the word. Well, at least they want you to believe that.

Tough on the outside, the bull is a nature lover as a native of Venus. He is sweet and charming to those who know him.

The Taurus man is sensual and physically expressive, yet appearances would have you thinking that he was more reserved.

This is possibly true with his day-to-day decision-making, but when he is in love, he is going to show it selflessly and with tons of affection.

The Taurus man is intelligent and communicative, he chooses his words wisely- he says what he means and means what he says.

He is hardworking and goal-oriented. Chances are this man is successful and seeks a mate with a similar drive. Finding a partner who shares his values is a priority for him.

The Taurus man is a homebody. A force to be reckoned with at his 9-5, he cannot wait to get home and indulge in some good food, romantic company, and an evening with his partner.

The Taurus, only matched by Cancer, is the most domesticated of the sun signs.

The Taurus man is the perfect catch: an ambitious go-getter and a selfless and sensual lover at home.

If you have been dating a man born under the sign of the bull but you’re not sure if it’s going anywhere, then I recommend you to read our article on Taurus man in love to help you discover his true feelings for you.

The best sexual partners for the Taurus man are Capricorn, Virgo, Cancer, and Pisces.

The Taurus Woman

The Taurus woman is the definition of a powerful woman. She is as strong as a bull, but as a native of Venus, she is as feminine as they come.

She is an artist at heart and drawn to things spiritual. If you told me that you know a Taurus woman from yoga class, I would not be surprised.

She is practical, intelligent, and communicative. While known for expressing her love physically, she needs stimulating conversation, preferably of the smart and humorous kind.

As a fixed sign, she is likely confident. The Taurus woman knows who she is and is looking for a partner who is the same.

The female bull is self-reliant and independent, so having a partner for her is a plus and not a necessity. She would much rather be alone than with someone insensitive, boring, or otherwise fake.

When in a relationship, she is devoted. Known to be a loyal lover, the Taurus woman seeks a partner who shares her values but also someone who does not bore her to death.

She appreciates genuine, interesting, and stable people in her life and to win her heart you will likely need to be patient and show and prove that you are a special catch.

Taurus Compatibility – Final Thoughts

The intelligent and friendly earth sign of Taurus craves stability, comfort, and peace. If a sun sign shares these values, their differences will likely balance each other out in beneficial ways.

The Taurus in love is devoted; stubborn, yet selfless. They are trustworthy and dependable and in it for the long run.

Compatibility with Taurus is good with other domesticated homebodies who like to partake in sensuality at home: winning and dining, good books, and movies, with some stimulating conversation in the mix.

Some sun signs not only have different values than the Taurus, but their values actively go against what the Taurus works so diligently at building up for themselves, their sandcastle.

For this reason, Taurus compatibility is poor with Aquarius, Gemini, Sagittarius, and Aries.

Conversely, Taurus makes an excellent partner for sun signs Capricorn, Virgo, Cancer, and Pisces.

All of these signs prefer to stay at home and gravitate towards intellectually stimulating conversations and activities.

Some of these signs are hardworking and goal-oriented, and the others can be as well, depending on other aspects of their natal chart and their overall character.
