Taurus and Gemini Compatibility:
Love, Sex, Trust and Life
If the tie between the Gemini and Taurus has to mature and stabilize, a lot of effort has to be put in by both of them. Projects that are common to both or money matters - they are the ones that put a crimp on being colleagues, friends or relatives. In every other respect the relationship between both is smooth flowing and hassle free.
In so far as professional or financial matters are concerned, there can be quite a few glitches. The reason for this is simple – Gemini has a conservative view of making and saving money. Just the opposite point of view is felt by the Taurus and it annoys him greatly when he is restrained in any way. Romance flowers very easily between both these signs. However, it is difficult to sustain because what they are basically looking for is very different. This relationship is not very viable in the long run unless Taurus is not quite so determined to get his own way and Gemini stabilizes to a greater degree. Parenthood involves different perspectives for both of them – Taurus is more of a custodian, while Gemini is a buddy to the kids.
By and large Taureans are stable, rather muted, easy-going and tranquil. Of course, if they are pushed too hard, there can be an outburst of terrifying rage. Normally this zodiac sign is far more pragmatic and a lot stronger than a lot of people who surround them. Nurturing the people they love is second nature to them. There is a marked tendency to overwork; but a Taurus knows exactly what goal they are chasing and just how to reach it at any cost despite any bottlenecks that might come their way. Most Taureans feel that it is of vital importance to leave a lasting impression and become cranky when this does not happen soon enough.
Careful consideration must be given to any budding romance between them and just how the relationship can flow along smoothly. Their relationship has a lot to give and there is also a lot to learn. However, plenty of fine tuning and give and take will have to take place. The twins, who symbolize Gemini, typify their being in two minds about almost everything. This might sound a little complicated – but should Taurus be successful in allowing one of the twins freedom and assurance and the other twin a sense of intimacy, there should be no problems at all. When the relationship is still very young, Taurus could be too demanding; at the same time it must also be kept in mind that even Geminis can become steadfast and reliable; all that Taurus has to do is keep hold of their patience.
A shining intelligence draws people to Geminis. Their sharp intelligence and quick wit can successfully extract them from any sticky situation. They have an adaptability that makes a refreshing change. All the different facets of their personality can mingle very easily. This is the complex angle to their nature that is an asset to convincing anyone to thinking their way, wheedle themselves out of any complexity and leave everybody around them in a state of thorough confusion. You never know whether you will find them being crabbity or totally carefree and happy. Moving about at will is part and parcel of their nature and independence is the very breath of life to them. As sparkling conversationalists, they draw people to themselves. Settling down in one spot does not come naturally to them – it is more like them to flit from one point to another.
Venus, which is the Planet of Love, rules Taurus while Mercury (Communication) is the overlord of Gemini. Both these signs have a proximity to the Sun and so while remaining more or less in the same locale are rather different so far as their innate natures are concerned. Venus is symbolic of pleasures of the flesh, sensuality and passion and ardour. There is both – feminine and masculine in Mercury; whatever form of energy can best be put to use is utilised by Gemini. Since Taurus only wants to seek out a reliable partner for enjoying the pleasures of the flesh, the effect of Geminian brilliance on Taurus is more than likely to be minimal. This could cause discord since Geminis themselves have an unshakeable belief that their quick wit is their most outstanding feature. Being highly intelligent Gemini quickly comes to the conclusion that what Taurus hankers after is a sensual and romantic partner.
If the question of survival comes into the picture, Geminis can rapidly adapt themselves to widely diverging points of view. This can however have the effect of giving Taurus the impression that Gemini is not dealing straight. This in turn has the effect of fostering a sense of distrust and Taurus gradually builds a wall around himself. The desire to learn from someone possessing such different characteristics is there in Taurus; but, the basic differences are practically impossible for them to understand. So, if the Taurus begins to feel that he is being pushed too much, he loses his equilibrium and a fiery outburst is the result. Gemini is too practical to get on the wrong side of Taurus. It must be mentioned here that Taurus should be careful on meeting a Gemini for the first time. All seems hunky-dory at the time, but infatuation and true love can never be the same thing. Though Gemini can be very appealing – to them a frenetic social life is much more attractive than mundane domesticity.
Taurus comes under the purview of an Earth sign while for Gemini it is Air. Taurus is pragmatic, but Gemini tends to make decisions random whims and of course his intellect. Gemini tends to flow with the tide and just does not feel the need to adhere to any particular plan. This particular relationship can take a beating if Taurus gets too possessive or if Gemini is remote and standoffish. There must be an effort on the part of both the signs to retain a certain elasticity so that the relationship works out. Despite an outward appearance of unpredictability, Taurus can talk himself into believing that in spite of flirting, the Gemini is taking the relationship seriously. The Gemini would do best to accept the ‘dig in my heels’ attitude of the Taurus when some important issue comes up. Gemini and Taurus are poles apart in their basic beliefs; even if there are possibilities of a relationship developing, it is usually impossible for them to agree with each other. Taurus is grave and grounded while Gemini loves a bit of fun and flits from one thing to another. No matter what, Gemini is almost always a lot of fun for Taurus, while the latter proves to be a pillar of strength for his less serious partner.
Taurus looks at life practically and soberly in contrast to the Gemini’s more cerebral attitude. This is not a very easy combination to handle. Taurus is likely to feel that Gemini it far too erratic and changeable, while Gemini regards Taurus as being too stodgy. There is a lot that both can learn from each other. With the help of Taurus, Gemini can delve a little deeper into life and in turn can be helped by Gemini to learn how to enjoy themselves and add a little excitement to life.
Unless both Taurus and Gemini come to grips about their relationship early on in the game, it can spell nothing but disaster. Gemini wants to put in his own inputs, while Taurus continues to dig in his heels. Finances can also be a source of potential catastrophe – because Gemini loves to spend money, while Taurus is very careful about doing so. To put it in a nut shell, Taurus wants the relationship to be more tactile, while Gemini goes in for the cerebral. If Gemini sidesteps shining too brightly around Taurus and instead showers them with an excessive show of love, that would work far better. If one is to look at the picture in the long run – their paths are tangential. Gemini always needs to be moving speedily, while the chief need for Taurus is stability and being grounded. This is a relationship which is overfull in misinterpretations and drama.
Gemini is a Mutable and Taurus is a Fixed sign. The tendency of Taurus is to concentrate and focus on one thing at a time while Gemini is notorious for flitting from one point to another as and how his mood dictates. If Gemini is not made to feel claustrophobic and can feel independent and Taurus realizes the value of being flexible and versatile, they can be valuable lessons learnt for both.
Basically Gemini is very much of a social being and is in search of a partner who can match his interests. Domesticity does not interest him in the least. A Geminian argument is not always straightforward. Sometimes their points of view are tangential and lead to arguments. Geminis make politicians par excellence. They are adept at mingling a lot of opposing elements and make it seem all too real – despite hanging on a thin thread of truth. A false ambience of peace and truth is created. This apparent detachment of the Gemini can severely upset Taurus because he feels he is not being given enough attention and is also being treated in a haughty manner. Gemini is always looking for a detour that will shorten the time taken to accomplish anything. Taurus can be a balm to the frayed nerves of a Gemini and appear downy and sensual. Gemini acts like a bolt of lightning to the somewhat stodgy Taurus.
The most positive angle to a Taurus Gemini bonding is the sense of refuge that both offer each other. If the lines of communication remain open, the result will be a relationship that is full of happiness and stability.
