How To Get Along – Taurus and Leo
AstroCompatibility Is The Goal
This series on AstroCompatibility will cover all of the potential matchups in the Zodiac. We will continue this series thinking about and commenting on Taurus and Leo.
Leo and Taurus. Both Egos Sturdy. One Outlandish, the Other Content. Taurus not Impressed, but Might Smile at Leo. Leo Wants to be Adored.
These two signs are both fixed. Fixed Earth and Fixed Fire. Two mutable is one thing. Two fixed is stubborn squared. Are you thinking what I am thinking? I am thinking: “Well, if they both start out agreeing on something together, they will be unmovable. But what if they don’t start out agreeing on the same thing?
Taurus is a fixed earth sign. Leo fixed fire. Think of a hot earthen oven and its bellows. Again, if not at cross purposes, this would make quite a team, or a fighting unit, or a new company, and even a romantic union. But things would have to be in an “already agreed upon state”. Moving quickly, changing on the run, taking notes for tomorrow, flowing adaptively – none of those things look like they would be a part of the Taurus / Leo plan.
Leos like to lead. Taurus does not absolutely have to lead, and does not mind following, if it’s a plan and agenda they helped come up with and one they agree with. Taurus has its own self-protective kind of 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. Again, it could work, if Taurus did not take offense. The thing about Taurus is that they can look on the outside like they are going along, and yet on the inside they are sizing you up for getting gored. Leo is blissful, unless strongly opposed. They are going to assume things are wonderful, until they are in a fight. This could get dramatic suddenly.
Positive Postulate: If you come up with a “positive postulate” it could be drawn quite easily. Leo is affable, sociable and outgoing. Taurus would let Leo stay up front, and they are sweet, warm and mellow. It could make 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, business or friendship would have an almost deceptively attractive outer image. They would both smile and tensions would be inner tensions. Outer grace would be the style.
Romance Recommendation: Initially, Taurus would probably find Leo’s sunny ways very appealing. Leo would see the warm Taurean energy as inviting and winsome. Since they are both fixed, neither would come off as flaky or 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.
