Which Star Signs Should Taurus Date?



Which Star Signs does Taurus get along with most easily? What are the best, the worst – and the most intriguing – compatibility matches for Taurus? Which Star Signs should a Taurus man or woman date?

Taurus Compatibility

Because Taurus is such a laid-back and easy-going Star Sign, it does a very good job of getting along with most other people, even those who are quite different to itself. However, for optimum compatibility, the best match for Taurus is someone who shares its feet-on-the-ground outlook and just wants to get on with enjoying life.

Signs Most Compatible With Taurus

As a Star Sign ruled by the element of Earth, the safest bet for a Taurus is probably one of the other two Earth Signs, i.e. VIRGO or CAPRICORN. The favorable 120° – or 4 Signs – spacing between Zodiac Signs in the same Element makes for an especially harmonious relationship and a level of compatibility well above the norm.

Both Virgo and Capricorn are good compatibility matches for Taurus since they share Taurus’s practical, cautious and material approach to life. However, Capricorn probably just beats Virgo as the better compatibility choice for Taurus. A common desire for worldly success and appreciation of the importance of money make Taurus and Capricorn natural born allies.

Really excellent too, in terms of their ability to harmonize with earthy Taurus, while also helping it to develop more sensitivity, are the Water Signs PISCES and CANCER, spaced by 60° – or next but one – from Taurus. Many believe this kind of Earth-Water combination is actually the ideal – and surely it’s no coincidence that a high proportion of successful compatibility matches are between people with birthdays two Zodiac Signs apart.

What About Another Taurus?

So what about another TAURUS as a good compatibility match? On the plus side, you’ll definitely know what makes them tick, since they embody so many aspects of yourself. Especially with a Taurus of the opposite sex, the chances are you’ll be strongly attracted to their best Taurean qualities – like their steadiness, patience and incredible sense of stylishness.

But because we don’t tend to like our bad points when we see them reflected in somebody else, there will also be things about Taurus people – most likely their stubbornness and inertia – that you’ll positively hate! If so, better take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror!

Signs Least Compatible With Taurus

The truth is, Taurus, your ideal compatibility match will rarely simply be a clone of yourself (how boring would that be!). But neither, for that matter, should their Star Sign be too astrologically antagonistic to your own.

For this reason, you should be cautious – in the absence of redeeming features – about folk born under the Star Signs of LEO and AQUARIUS. Because both these Signs are at a challenging 90° angle (or 3 Sign spacing) from Taurus, the differences between you may be so vast, the chances are they’ll be too incompatible – and just too much hard work.

Of these two Star Signs, Aquarius just qualifies as the worst possible compatibility match for Taurus. Due to its cautious conservatism and strong resistance to change, Taurus may find it harder than most other Signs to cope with Aquarius’s highly progressive, rebelliously non-conformist outlook.

Signs spaced at 150° (or 5 Signs) from Taurus, such as SAGITTARIUS, can present more minor compatibility challenges. However, although traditionally considered to be ‘awkward’, and involving Signs in conflicting elements, 150° relationships aren’t necessarily quite as bad as they might appear. Okay, these may not be your first choice, but neither should they be your last. So don’t make the mistake of writing them off as unsuitable – in many cases a love match could work out fine!

Why Opposites Attract

Rather than someone who conflicts with you, Taurus, what you’re really looking for, from a Star Sign compatibility point of view, is the kind of person who is able to balance or complement you in some way. For this reason, the Sign diametrically opposite your own, i.e. SCORPIO, can be a great compatibility match for you, Taurus.

Opposite Star Signs are often magnetically attracted to each other, their strong yin-yang polarity giving them the potential to complete each other like two halves of a perfect whole. When dating a Scorpio, straightforward, down-to-earth Taurus can benefit from its opposite Sign’s more intuitive and deeply probing approach. Taurus’s tendency towards inertia is less of a problem with power-driven Scorpio by its side.

Neighboring Star Signs

Although Taurus is quite different from its immediate neighbors, ARIES and GEMINI, in reality it can relate quite well to – and frequently enjoys quite a good level of compatibility with – these Star Signs. This is because people whose Sun Sign is Taurus often have Mercury or Venus – which can never be far from the Sun – in the preceding or following Signs of Aries or Gemini. Many Taurus-Aries or Taurus-Gemini couples will therefore embody a number of each other’s characteristics and have far more in common than you might initially expect.

Taurus Compatibility ‘Wild Card’

Although not technically recognized as a good compatibility match for Taurus because of the awkward 150° angle, LIBRA is a popular ‘wild card’ partnership choice for the Bull. Both ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, Taurus and Libra are linked by their shared desire for peace, harmony and creature comforts and in each other’s company they have the ability to enjoy life to the full.

Taurus Worst Compatibility Match*: AQUARIUS

How Can Taurus Improve Their Compatibility?

To improve their chances of getting on better with every Star Sign, Taurus should focus on showing others less of their most annoying traits, i.e. their obstinacy and inertia, and more of what's most endearing about them, i.e. their patience and dependability. If you're a Taurus, in general everyone will find you easier to live with if you're a little less uncompromising and a little more prepared for give and take. This will be particularly important in the case of Star Sign matches which present the biggest compatibility challenges for a Taurus, as detailed above.
