Taurus and Cancer Compatibility:
Love, Sex, Trust and Life
Home is generally the centre of attention of both these signs and hence any mutual relationship is almost always bound to be happy and compatible. What is very dear to both is a home that is based on a solid foundation, a relationship that is marked by its strength, materials possessions that highlight good taste and of course food that is healthy and tasty. Other sun signs envy their idyllic life style and the ties that they share are strong. The relationship that exists between both of them has its roots within the family itself rather than the outside world. Trouble might sprout only when the Taurus tries his hand at being too domineering and the Cancer responds by sulking with a vengeance. Taurus ought to try very hard to empathise with the ultra-sensitive compassionate nature of Cancer, who in turn must be more open and not indulge in emotional blackmail.
Both these signs are unassertive and are aware of having each other as relatives, colleagues or any kind of intimate relationship. There is a very close bonding with each other and prepared to listen when the other has something to say. Any kind of business or professional relationship between both also flourishes because both try and contribute as much as they can and money and status does not really make much of a difference. Romance is genuine and beautiful and appears to both to be the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Cancer and Taurus both thoroughly enjoy being parents. Taking care of everybody comes very naturally to them. During childhood both these members of the zodiac are respectful to those senior to them and love their siblings and the entire gamut of their relationship.
Taurus and Cancer are Earth and Water signs respectively. They are very well matched and have a like-minded view of all matters in general. It is just as though plants in the soil if watered properly flourish and are extremely positive factors. However, it has to be admitted that Taurus is much more grounded than Cancer and not so emotionally fragile. Thus, Taurus extending a helping hand will make a world of difference. The slightly patchy ground that both these signs could face is Taurus tiring of the Cancerian mood swings and the Cancer feeling that Taurus is not being sensitive enough to their emotional needs.
Taureans are by nature reticent and down-to-earth people who can remain composed even when times are most difficult. Their home life has to be stable and family and a proper flow of finances means a lot to them. Calm and associated come together for them and at the same time are linked to a feeling of reserve and being circumspect. Taureans almost in every situation are grounded and calm. However, infrequently and only when they are pushed to the limits of intolerance there is a display of sheer brute strength. Disappointments are pushed to the back of the mind and a Taurus focuses with the utmost concentration on achieving what he has set out to do. Relief from stress comes by drawing on the deep wells of the creativity that they possess. Modern society does not appeal to them and neither do modern mannerisms and behaviour – sometimes this causes them acute bouts of anxiety.
When love sprouts between a Cancer and a Taurus, it is almost an idyllic situation. Though almost at either end of the zodiac calendar, there are karmic bonds that tie them together; this is further enhanced by an in depth understanding. There is a lot that both the signs share – in any bond of love, they place a lot of value on security. Cancer nurtures emotionally while Taurus envelops his partner in sensuality of every kind. Both these signs are domesticated. There are few things that appeal to them as much as quiet nights spent in the company of their loved one.
Taurus and Cancer are perfectly matched in any kind of business venture. The foundation and organisation is handled by Taurus; Cancer plays a part in running it smoothly, without any glitches. Every once in a while a Taurean tends to dig in his heels; cancer then is all the more tender, loving and understanding until the Taurus is back to his more usual equilibrium. The better part of the time Taurus and Cancer have a smooth relationship. Both fulfil what the other lacks.
Cancer is a Cardinal, while Taurus is a Fixed Sign. In keeping with this attitude, a Taurus rarely changes his mind once he has made it up. The Cancer can rely totally on this rock like stability. Cancer also contributes by inspiring the relationship anew and beginning new projects that the Taurus is likely to relish administering later on.
Cancers can sometimes be rather unstable and erratic. However they are also very loving and compassionate, though when they are angered, it is a different story altogether. In any intimate association with them, one gets to see the hard and yet malleable interior. Their sense of romance can reach almost the heights of fantasy. Once marriage comes to be, they become more grounded and less prone to live in a dream world. Cancer is ultra-sensitive and attuned to the needs and problems of others; they can truly empathise. There is an underlying sense of humour coupled with marked leadership capabilities. If the people they care about so want, Cancerians are happy to change their minds about any issue. Imagination is another hallmark of the Cancer and they enjoy good music and art. Tradition and culture makes a world of difference to them.
The Moon rules Cancer and hence the emotional nature; Venus characterising Love is the overlord of Taurus. Feminine energy is at the core of both of them. An inherent tendency to stifling emotions sometimes can result in the Cancer totally losing her cool. One of the causes of Cancer being attracted to Taurus is because of his forthright and confident nature. Cancer has made the business of manipulating behind the scenes a fine art! This is a perfect reflection of its mentor the Moon which exerts an unseen pull on the earth’s tides. Taurus and Cancer both prefer keeping each other company rather than socializing in large groups.
Taureans seek material security, while Cancerians are in search of emotional security. Thus both fit in a groove very well. Taurus looks for a sure and steady relationship in which he can promise absolute loyalty – which in perfect harmony with the needs of a Cancer. Both take it as a display of true affection. The longing that Cancer has for a lasting emotion is fulfilled. Both these signs are domesticated and are more than happy with the prospect of a family and home. They thoroughly enjoy the prospect of doing anything together and it is big stabilizing factor in their already stable marriage. The financial angle – which is such an important part, they are in perfect synch. Both Taurus and Cancer give a lot of thought to the matter before spending on virtually anything.
Usually easy going and no problem at all to get along with, when they are unpleasant, they can be so with a vengeance. If there is any problem or they are unhappy with a situation, Cancer likes all the attention she can possibly get. Despite sharing a lot of similarities, Taurus finds it supremely annoying to strive to understand Cancer and their mood swings. A further possible glitch is the obstinacy of the Taureans and silence in expressing their caring. This jars on the Cancer and makes her jittery and unsure; in turn this can turn into a war of nerves or a loud slanging match. It can even lead to permanently damaging their relationship. Should enough time be given and some patience shown, theirs is indeed one of the best relationships ever.
The bonding that Taurus and Cancer share is very harmonious. No matter what their relation, both can be relied on for an abundance of emotional support. When Taurus digs in his heels or the Cancer is moody, matters might get a little patchy, but it is never long lasting.
It is the steadfast and sturdy teamwork that is the most appealing factor of the Taurus-Cancer relationship. Both equally enjoy domesticity. The fact that both love their home and family makes their relationship an idyllic one.
