How Taurus and Leo Can Get Along
These two signs are both fixed: Taurus is fixed earth and Leo is fixed fire. Two mutable signs are one thing, but two fixed signs are stubborn, squared. Are you thinking what I am thinking? If they start out agreeing on something together, they will be unmovable. But what if they don’t agree on the same thing?
Taurus is a fixed earth sign. Leo is fixed fire. Think of a hot earthen oven and its bellows. If not crossing paths, these two would make quite a team, fighting unit, company, or even romantic union. But things would have to be already agreed upon. Moving quickly, changing on the run, taking notes for tomorrow, and flowing adaptively are not part of the Taurus-Leo relationship.
Leos like to lead. Tauruses do not absolutely have to lead but do not mind following if it’s a plan they helped come up with and agree with. Taurus has their own self-protective security, and Leo is not known for being quietly diplomatic. The Taurus would have to agree to let the big Leo personality take the lead. It could work if Taurus does not take offense.
The thing about Taurus is that they can look like they are going along with everything on the outside, and yet on the inside they are sizing you up. Leo is blissful unless strongly opposed. They are going to assume things are wonderful until they get into a fight. This relationship could suddenly get dramatic.
A “positive postulate” could be drawn quite easily from these two. Leo is affable, sociable and outgoing. Tauruses are sweet, warm and mellow and would let Leo stay up front. This makes for a nice public image and a potentially harmonious coupling. Taurus could be the harder working part of the match, and Leo could do the public relations part of the operation. This is the kind of partnering—whether romantic, platonic, or for business—would have an almost deceptively attractive outer image. Tensions might face inwards, but they would both smile and have an aura of outer grace.
Initially, Taurus would find Leo’s sunny ways very appealing, and Leo would see the warm Taurean energy as inviting and winsome. Since they are both fixed, neither would come off as flaky, unpredictable, or too “individualistic”. Styles would be conventional and classically colorful. They would dance well together. Leo trying to lead. Taurus agreeing to follow. The fixedness could be a problem romantically, if someone made a suggestion that the other should make a big (or little) change. Leo would be insulted, since they feel they are close to flawless. Taurus would be offended because they have their act down, and it has worked quite well all this time, thank you.
Conflict Quotient: Watching a fight between these two would be like watching a brawl with no winner. Just use your TV imagination. A lion does not bring down a giant bull without help from the female lions. The lion would be staring at a four legged pair of hard horns, meaning that a draw is all that could be envisioned. Seriously, it’s not that these two are uncivilized, it’s just that one would ask: “Who is going to give in?” Most likely, Taurus would give in, but get compromises that Leo “officially” did not give up. And that could work. It’s a matter of style as much as substance.
Peace Parlay: Life in the end is repetitive and mundane, and so is Romance itself. This factor asks the question: "Can we be bored together over the long term?" The advantage for Taurus and Leo is that they both love basking in the sun. And truly, getting joy from your work is natural. Taurus loves pleasure and reflection. Leo might start prowling, just because they have not gotten as much attention as they like. Once they got this far, the two could be very relaxed together.
Keep Up The Interest Graph: Leo is always looking for new friends and admirers. This could make them see new terrain and always make things fresh and interesting. Taurus could like the places that Leo discovers and sample new dishes and cuisines. Taurus might have to do much following, but enjoy the trip.
Seven Year Itchiness: There are some signs that by their nature are more stable in their love interests and family concerns as time goes on. Others are not. The 7 Year Itch and Leo are naturals. Not that they would be unfaithful, but they would probably be more tempted than the average sun sign. Taurus, sensual Taurus, has a great smile and a nice smooth voice. If not too overweight, Taurus might stray into another pasture, if Leo has been particularly annoying.
ASTROCOMPATIBILITY POSSIBILITY RATING: 65% Positive Long Term - 50% Short Term. A short term relationship could be very attractive to both. But it also means they would not have had a struggle yet. However, as time went on, they would have to resolve differences. If they were mostly on the same page in the beginning and then struggled to work things out, it could be pleasant long term.
