Taurus - Scorpio Love Compatibility




Because Taurus and Scorpio have diametrically opposed personalities, for good love compatibility 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 Taurus and Scorpio is traditionally considered to be rather exciting! When two people are born under opposite Star Signs, such as Taurus and Scorpio, 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. Here Taurus’s calm, steady, down-to-earth outlook ideally balances Scorpio’s extreme emotional intensity. At the same time, 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 Taurus and Scorpio, 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.

Taurus and Scorpio 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 Taurus-Scorpio relationship, but could ultimately destroy it unless kept firmly in check.


Sexually, Taurus and Scorpio are among the best matched, 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.


Both these Star Signs have strongly held opinions which they’re reluctant to budge from because they always think they know best. For this reason, unless at least one of them is willing to give way to the other – which doesn’t happen very often – Taurus and Scorpio can easily become embroiled in subtle mental power games which tend to go on and on.

Taurus and Scorpio rarely argue openly though, and their disagreements are more likely to be marked by long uncomfortable silences than by angry words. The main problem for these two Star Signs is that neither is much good at communicating its inner thoughts. Taurus holds its tongue because it’s too keen on a quiet life to risk upsetting the peace, while Scorpio prefers to wait until it’s certain of outright victory before going in for the kill and hammering its point home.


One of the biggest compatibility challenges in a Taurus-Scorpio 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.
