Scorpio - Taurus Love Compatibility


The Power-Broker and the Provider


Because Scorpio and Taurus have diametrically opposed personalities, for this love match to work it’s essential that both people are willing to celebrate, and not criticize, the contrasting qualities which they observe in each other but which they don’t personally possess.


As far as love compatibility is concerned, the combination of Scorpio and Taurus is traditionally considered to be rather exciting! When two people are born under opposite Star Signs, such as Scorpio and Taurus, there’s often a strong attraction between them because they’re magnetically drawn to qualities and traits in each other which perfectly complement their own.

Each has the ability to compensate for the other’s weak points – and in this case Taurus’s calm, down-to-earth outlook ideally balances Scorpio’s extreme emotional intensity. Equally, Scorpio’s inner strength and resourcefulness are well matched by Taurus’s more practical skills and know-how, potentially creating an exceptionally powerful team.

Problems arise only if these two 'fixed' signs are too inflexible with each other, or if one tries to convert the other to its own particular approach – in which case the differences between them can become a major hindrance rather than an asset.

In a long-term relationship, to avoid an ongoing battle of wills, Taurus has to accept it's unlikely ever to be successful in unravelling the Scorpion's mysterious complexity, while Scorpio has to learn to respect the Bull's much more simplistic and matter-of-fact approach.

Although there are some major emotional differences between Scorpio and Taurus, these two signs are strongly attracted to the qualities in each other they themselves are lacking. Feet-on-the-ground, placid-natured Taurus does a good job of balancing and calming Scorpio’s intense and all-consuming feelings. In turn, Scorpio can help Taurus to look beyond face values and enjoy a deeper level of intimacy and emotional involvement.

Scorpio and Taurus are also powerfully drawn to each other by what they share in common. Both signs are extremely emotionally stubborn, neither being willing to back down or give way once they’ve made their mind up. This inability to ‘let go’ also makes both signs highly possessive and controlling of each other. All of this injects a lot of passion into a Scorpio-Taurus relationship, but could ultimately destroy it unless kept firmly in check.


Sexually, Scorpio and Taurus are among the best matched of the star signs, the strong yin-yang polarity between them giving them the potential to complete each other as two halves of a beautiful whole!

A bit of give and take is necessary of course, with a little more sensitivity needed from Taurus – and from Scorpio, a little less – and with both signs needing to control their tendency towards sexual insecurity and jealousy. But given their loyalty and commitment to each other, it's something they're usually prepared to work at.


One of the biggest compatibility challenges in a Scorpio-Taurus relationship stems from both signs’ difficulties – for different reasons – in airing serious issues and bringing them out into the open.

Simple-hearted Taurus, who never looks much beneath the surface, finds it hard to recognize problems unless they’re staring it right in the face – and in any case is far too stoical and too fearful of upsetting the peace to risk an angry confrontation. Manipulative Scorpio is only too aware of subtle, underlying conflicts and power struggles, but deliberately keeps its secret insights to itself until it’s ready to use them to its own advantage.

To get the very best out of this relationship, both signs have to be willing to communicate more openly and directly about the things they really care about.
