Taurus and AquariusWhen Taurus and Aquarius come together, they can move mountains — if they can figure out how to coordinate their efforts. Taurus’s practical, down-to-earth approach to life is about as opposite as can be to Aquarius’s unconventional, out-of-this-world approach to just about everything! Taurus resists change and Aquarius is the most progressive of all 12 Signs of the Zodiac. How do these two get along, then? They may appear to have few common interests, but they share a very strong desire to succeed — which means they may make better business partners than lovers.
Since these two can both be extremely opinionated, they must take care not to get into arguments, especially because of their dissimilar reactions to tension: When Taurus gets angry they tend to charge like the Bulls that they are; when Aquarius feels pressure, they tend to pull away, using an aloof demeanor to put space between themselves and their ‘tormentor.’ This can make Taurus push even harder, causing Aquarius to pull further away … and so on. They like to do things their way with as little fuss as possible. Modern, progressive Aquarius may find Taurus’s dedication to routine a bit boring. Taurus will find Aquarius exciting yet may feel frustrated trying to keep up with this inventor’s quick mind. Despite their differences, however, they do have something to offer one another. Though Aquarius will have a hard time admitting it (even to themselves), they’ll find Taurus’s solid base to be comfortingly supportive, and Taurus will find Aquarius stimulating, if not altogether comfortable.
Taurus is ruled by Venus (Love) and Aquarius is ruled by Saturn (Karma) and Uranus (Rebellion). Venus is a warm, feminine energy and Saturn a cold masculine energy. Uranus is about all things strange and unusual. Venus focuses on beauty, romance and sensual pleasures, all of which are important and pleasing to Taurus. Saturn causes Aquarius to focus on hard work and discipline to achieve goals; Uranus lends an Aquarius that revolutionary thinking. Taurus can show Aquarius that life is based on emotions and improved by beauty and comfort. Aquarius can show Taurus how to keep striving for betterment — and how to move away from something if it isn’t working, an important lesson for Taurus to learn.
Taurus is an Earth Sign and Aquarius is an Air Sign. Aquarius focuses on intellectual connections and pursuits while Taurus focuses on more practical and sensual interests. Where Taurus asks, ‘How will this help me achieve my goals in life?’ Aquarius asks, ‘What else?’ These two can have trouble understanding one another; if Taurus clings too closely or if Aquarius seems too cold and aloof, trouble can erupt. If they operate from a base of mutual love and respect, however, these two can grow to understand how one another works.
Taurus and Aquarius are both Fixed Signs. They’re both stubborn and, once they make up their minds, don’t like to change their viewpoint or opinion. This steadfastness extends to their personal life: Once they’re committed to one another, almost nothing can make them decide to abandon the relationship. If the relationship is smooth and mutually beneficial, this is a good thing, but if the relationship is inhibitive for either or both partners, their refusal to admit it should end can seriously hamper both of their growth in life. If they realize that working together is more yielding than butting heads, they will remain productive. Since Taurus tends to be more practical, they might be the first to back down in an argument — if they deem it practical to do so.
What’s the best aspect of the Taurus-Aquarius relationship? Their unstoppable team power that is possible once they clear their path of obstacles. Both Signs have very powerful personalities, so neither will dominate the other — no matter how hard they try! This relationship can be truly exciting and satisfying once these two Signs work out how it’ll work between them.
