As fixed signs, they share an urge for loyalty and stable affection. However, that doesn't mean they always have an easy relationship. Fixed signs are exactly that—fixed, immovable, penetrating, and stubborn. In short, they are lovers of stability. Taurus and Leo have something in common here. With these two signs, there's a hard square angle for tension and conflict. While this creates friction, the many Leo-Taurus couples prove that some lovers prefer the path of most resistance. The Love Glue When they first start dating, Leo enjoys being the prize possession of the Bull, who shows love with valuable or hand-crafted gifts and advice. Both signs are uninhibited pleasure-seekers, making sex the glue and the catharsis for relationship frustrations. High-spirited Leo helps Taurus cast off their cloak of reserve and indulge in the moment. Once Taurus lets their hair down, they let it all hang out—many love to lounge around in the buff. Leo has a bit of the exhibitionist in their make-up, too—get ready for some artful tableaus and gestures of sensuality. Both signs know how to have fun, often preferring languid, relaxed pleasures over sustained busyness. Taurus the builder often prods Leo to turn their wildest dreams into tangible reality. Further into the relationship, Taurus and Leo will discover that what doesn't kill their bond makes it stronger. Here you have two notoriously stubborn types, and there will be high-noon showdowns throughout their relationship. Tensions flare when Leo isn't getting the adulation or attention they expect. If Taurus is absorbed elsewhere for too long, the Lion roars. When Leo feels consistently disrespected, as if their needs don't matter, it can become a fundamental problem in the relationship. A Little Friction Taurus, because of their mellow nature, sometimes finds Leo demanding or frustrating. Here's a couple that may argue all the time but still end up side by side in rockers on the porch. It doesn't always work, but friction can be a beneficial force in relationships. It's love with an edge, and that can keep a couple together for life. High points are pride in children and other shared creations. Taurus and Leo are a creative team when their formidable energies are diverted away from drama and squabbling. They thrive together when their shared intensity is used to manifest their dreams. With Taurus and Leo, communication is key. If both partners are open and honest with each other in expressing their feelings and their needs, it'll minimize conflict and reduce jealousy. When conversation gets heated, it's important for each sign to take a step back and assess things calmly. Though Taurus and Leo are both extremely passionate, and things between them can sometimes get out of control, they know how to apologize and make up. At the end of the day, the love between Taurus and Leo is hard to break. These hedonists love life, and they are proud of what they make together, whether it's a small craft project or an entire home. This resourceful pair knows how to work hard and play hard.
