Libra and Taurus Compatibility:
Love, Sex, Trust and Life
Among the various other positive qualities of Taureans is being generous to a fault, easy going and tolerant and loyal to a fault. Taureans when they love – be it a romantic liaison, parents, siblings, relatives or friends, they will pull out all stops to take very good care of them. They prefer to keep to the familiar and rarely move out of the social circle they are used to. Taurus are a strange combination of sentiment and yet remaining fond of luxury and financial security. This genre can work very hard and yet remain unassuming. People belonging to this sun sign Taurus are so grounded that it almost verges on the brink of abject pessimism. This tenacity stems from a do or die attitude and the rock bottom belief they have in themselves and their convictions.
Libra and Taurus are both rules by Venus, symbolic of love and money. They also have in common a strong attraction for love, romance and beauty. A sense of balance is particularly important to the Libran. Both these signs crave peace and harmony and are blessed with a charming personality. The negative elements that both also share is an elitist attitude and laziness. This stems from laziness in a Taurus and intellectual snobbery in the Libran.
Taurus always prefers to follow the customs and norms that are prevalent in his circle; this isn't necessarily because he agrees with everything that is being said or done, but because he is more comfortable with them. Trying to break away from the norms they feel could cause discord and destabilize their life style. In a manner of speaking, this also warns the Libran not to overstep the mark. If the Libra gets into the habit of prodding too much, the Taurus could begin displaying signs of discontentment, which is most certainly not a healthy sign. If both these signs make a concerted effort to cooperate with and understand each other, the effort will bring about positive results. Should this prove fruitful, there is harmony and progress; or else it is a dead-end and no place to move.
There is a common love for the art that Taurus and Libra share. Something that appeals to the physical senses like good gourmet food or the theatre or the movies is top priority for both these signs. Wooing and being wooed – yet another common passion! If there is love factor, courtship is virtually mandatory. Thus the grooves fit in quite well. Libra exudes a charm that Taurus appreciates unless they are being particularly stubborn about some issue. While appreciating the extravagances that Taurus indulges them in, Libra is quite able at smoothening things over and maintaining a serene relationship. There is a lot both have to learn from each other. Taurus is good at preventing Libra from procrastination while Libra helps Taurus to see both sides of the coin.
The Taurus-Libra relationship can swing to either ends of the spectrum. No matter what the situation, there is absolute sincerity and neither is willing to give up on the other. The family bonds are very strong where these signs are connected. Since there is great amity, both are happy to give a lot of time and space to this bonding as well as learning from each other and teaching as well. Thus the relationship is smooth and without any glitches. However a joint business venture could cause problems leading to big time arguments and heavy losses as well. A lot of care should be taken to ensure that this does not happen. There is always the possibility of such a match being a dream match and adjustments are not all that difficult an issue either. Taurus and Libra look forward to parenthood and thoroughly enjoy looking after their children and family.
When there is a love affair between these two signs, it is like the formation of one whole unit. It is a karmic link. This bond is in the nature of a sanctuary for both and both have an enjoyment of the finer elements. It is an apparently slow relationship to develop, but with better understanding there is discovery of many more elements of common interest. Both Libra and Taurus are by and large not militant, but rather peace loving and balanced people. Temperamentally there certainly are differences; Taurus is down to earth and pragmatic and Libra leans more towards the cerebral. However, if Libra can be just a little more elastic and while seeming to give in to Taurus work around to getting their own way things will definitely work out.
Taurus is designated as a Fixed sign and Libra as a Cardinal one. It is Taurus that keeps the momentum going in any relationship between them; Libra is the one who initiates. There is no way to get a Fixed Sign to move and Libra should try and understand the innate stubborn streak in a Bull. If the coaxing is gentle (and Libra is a maestro at this) even mountains can be moved. Taurus being more down to earth turns edgy when Libra is indecisive and takes ages to make up his mind. If Taurus refrains from trying to bully, Libra will find it that much easier to accept any decision that a Taurus happens to make.
Taureans are not by nature argumentative and nor are they fond of starting a slanging match. They just move away and openly display their supreme disinterest in such an unimportant issue. However if this sun sign is needled too much, they display what calibre they are really made of. If it comes to an issue of principles, Taureans are not all hesitant about defending the issue at hand or displaying their strength if so required. This is especially so if the welfare of any loved one is concerned. Libra is at the opposite end of the spectrum. They are not in the least bit concerned about a prolonged argument until proven to be right beyond any shadow of doubt. Like the scale which is their symbol, there must be perfect harmony before they are satisfied. No matter is too minute to be analysed to the very last dregs. This impulsive manner of thinking/living is not at all in synch with Taurus who has his pattern deeply engraved in his modus operandi.
Taurus and Libra are Earth and Air signs respectively. Libra is more cerebral and does not care about whether or not it is practical, while Taurus prefers to simply question in what manner that particular action will help him to achieve his set goal in life. There can be clashes if Taurus gets too possessive or Libra is a mite too social. There are quite a few occasions when neither can understand what the other is even talking about. Both the signs must agree to disagree if they are to get along smoothly.
No matter what the relationship, Taurus and Libra are bound to share opposite points of view. While Taurus prefers to take life very easy and in the most laidback manner possible Libra is constantly moving from one point to another. Librans think very clearly and tend to pick a fight with one is strong like the Taurean! The latter might find Librans tiring, but that doesn't prevent them from becoming furious if the Libran insists on conversing or flirting all the time. For a Taurus, such prolonged conversation is wearisome to say the least. Libra is quite adamant about winning any and every argument and it is unimportant what Taurus feels about the issue. However, the relationship does have some positive factors, especially if both are prepared to make some adjustments. It helps in reducing the radical elements in both.
By and large Librans age well and retain an indefinable charm. They sometimes tend to use this charm as a bait to lure someone into seeing things their way and thus forcing the issue to be favourable for them. Nothing is taken for granted and never are they prepared to hurry about taking any kind of decision. Hardly anything is taken at face value and any matter is thoroughly analysed and researched to make sure of the actual facts. All the facts are weighed and decisions are considered before making up their mind. However, it is just as true that when a Libran finally does make up his mind, they firmly adhere to it.
The best of this Taurus-Libra relationship is their mutual fondness for cultural values, all that is beautiful and of course whatever gives them pleasure. There is always the possibility of alluring romance and magnificent synch in their relationship.
