Libra and Taurus Compatibility
Even Though these two planets are from different seasons, they are ruled by the same planet, Venus. Venus is also referred to as the planet of love, so both these zodiac signs show intense feelings when it comes to love and romance. But these two signs have a lot of opposition even though they are not complete opposites.
So Taurus and Libra can only have a long-lasting relationship if they can overcome their shortcomings, have patience, and understand each other to work in harmony.
Taurus is very blunt, like the bull, unlike Libra, who are sensitive. Libras are fascinated by Taurus's humor, witty nature, and decisiveness, and they feel safe with them. These two zodiac signs can enjoy various activities together like camping and hiking. Taurus love the fact that Libras are emotionally effusive but also have a brain.
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 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
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.
Personality Traits of Libra and Taurus
Taurus is considered to be the anchor of the zodiac sign. They are known for their stability and consistency. But anyone who endangers their sense of security might face their wrath. Taureans are very trustworthy and friendly, and they are ready to go to any extent to keep up their side of the friendship.
Taurus symbolized by bulls are stubborn and are set in their ways. They have a true nature, and that doesn't mean that they are trying to be difficult. This quality makes them highly resistant to any change. They are also opposed to the idea of someone else having authority over them and tend to find themselves as the perfect leaders.
Love Compatibility of Libra and Taurus
These are two signs that, according to astrological science, are karmically linked. They are both earth signs and look for security and trust in their relationship, and they share a love for art, poetry, and culture. Even though it might take a lot of effort to start their relationship, and they might only find a few common interests at the beginning as they start knowing each other better, they are sure to have much more in common.
Both Taurus and Libra appreciate fine dining and theatre, collecting art and music, and aesthetics premium for these signs. Courtship is an integral part of their romantic relationship, and they both tend to fit well once they overcome the initial hassles.
Taurus is mesmerized by Libra's charm, and Taurus doesn't seem to get in the way of the diplomatic Libras. This helps to keep things smooth and to keep the peace between them. Libras are content with the luxury that Taurus provides them. And they both have a lot to teach each other.
Libra helps Taurus to see the different sides of a situation. These couples share a love for beauty and luxury and create a great romantic bonding when they understand each other. Both these signs have charming personalities, and they have the desire to create harmony in their relationships.
Sexual Compatibility of Libra and Taurus
Both these signs are ruled by Venus or the god of love, so they have a special spark in their relationship. But they have opposite characters. While Taurus loves to be comfortable and relies on a sense of touch and taste, Libra relies on their eyesight and is attracted to anything that feels pretty or smells attractive. They do connect but in their unique ways and thus have different approaches to sexual pleasure.
The main difference between these two signs is because of the difference in their exalting planet and elements. Taurus is an earth sign and exalts in the moon, whereas Libra is an air sign and exalts in Saturn. They are likely attracted to opposite things. Taurus relies on emotions and tenderness, and Libra relies on its depth and good timing.
Taurus is more emotionally attached in the relationship, whereas Libras are physically attached, making it hard for them to understand what their partners want. But irrespective of how different they are from one another, they can still be fairly attracted to one another due to their ruling planet. Taurus is a feminine sign, whereas Libra is a masculine sign, and thus they can mend the differences between each other. They are both gentle lovers and tend to stay away from stress and drama, but they need to be extremely patient to be a really good fit.
Trust And Communication of Libra and Taurus
Taurus are very particular about trust in their relationship, but Libras can damage their trust as they are liked by everyone, especially if they are unsure whether they want to be with their Taurus partner at the beginning. If Libras cannot make the most basic decisions, then it can certainly hurt Taurus's ego.
The main downside of Libras being with Taurus is that even if they are Libra's first choice, they might end up flirting with many others, which may completely break the trust between the two. Especially with the insecure Libra specimen, it will be hard to build a trustworthy relationship that might last long.
Libra's search for acceptance goes a long way, and they are sometimes unfaithful to their partners in the process. But their quality is in their search for justice and that they rarely act on their insecurities, but they are still unstable, especially when they try to have a stable relationship with someone as stable as Taurus.
Libras are indecisive and are never certain of what they want, and on the other hand, Taurus is always certain and unchangeable, which makes it almost impossible for them to have a calm and prosperous relationship.
They are two different slides of Venus: Taurus represents a peasant girl, whereas Libra represents a city lady. So when they combine their ego, problems become very prominent.
Values and Emotions of Libra and Taurus
Venus is the ruler of both Taurus and Libra, and it represents its value. They have the same values as their similarities are based on what their rulers like and don't. But this is quite different between the two.
The main similarities between these two zodiac signs ruled by Venus are that both are truthful and search for a magical and mystical love with Venus exalted in Pisces.
But the main difference is that Taurus values tenderness and touch on their way to a magical relationship, whereas Libra values responsibility and seriousness. Their final goals are the same, and they value the ability of their partners to love them, but they choose opposite paths.
If these partners fall in love with each other, their true point of connection will be finding someone who values them. If they are attracted to each other, then the chances are that they might be madly in love with each other, but in most cases, they are too careful to end up in a long-term relationship.
Even though both of them want the same thing, they will rarely find it with each other. Taurus generally doesn't give enough space to Libras to discover themselves and Libras end up spending too much time looking for their faults.
