Taurus with Libra: Their Love Compatibility

Pleasure Seekers Who Love to Be in Love

Both Taurus and Libra are ruled by the love planet Venus. And Venusians tend to share a love of material excess and sensual indulgence.

The difference is that Taurus is the down-and-dirty kind of Venusian and Libra holds the moral high ground sort. With physical affection, look to Mars and Moon signs for common ground where earth and air can meet. It's the idea of something versus actually doing it.

But there's a strong physical attraction at the get-go, which makes them ignore clashing personality traits. Will it last? If the ideal can meet the real, yes.

They Love to Be in Love

Taurus and Libra are signs that love to be in love. Libra is a breezy dream to Taurus, who appreciates this air sign's social grace and elegant style in dress and conversation. Libra is intrigued by the settled aura of the Bull, bringing up visions of a happy domestic life.

They go far together sharing the finer things, both being connoisseurs of refined pleasures. With Libra mingling and Taurus serving up the appetizers, you've got great party hosts here.

Taurus in love is laid back, preferring the other to be drawn in and to read their minds.

Libra in love looks for the admiring gaze and has an instinct to charm.

Libra is a talker, and some are constantly fishing for feedback, which will surely drive Taurus crazy. To relax, Taurus likes to chill and not respond, and this can become a source of conflict for this pair.

The Love Ideal and What's Real

Look at Venus for clues here. In Taurus, Venus is languid, sensuous and an attractor (a feminine earth sign). In Libra, Venus is moving on air, concepts, the idea of fairness in all things. If Bulls are too stuck in their ways, with a side of selfish, Libras' balance alarm blinks red. What's more, Libra can be exhausting to the chill Bull, who may feel there's too much togetherness and chatting at times.

Libra is a cardinal sign, which is always pushing at the edge. And it's a sign that has a reputation for constantly wanting reform in a relationship. This can seem provocative and highly irritating to the more easygoing Taurus. The Bull is about contentment and chafes at constant pressure to improve things.

Slow and Steady Versus Fits and Starts

When trying to relate long term, both Libra and Taurus can fall into times of passive inaction. They're both very ambitious Zodiak signs but act on their terms and with a strategy that makes sense to their nature.

The Taurus rhythm is steady but slow, and Libra's vitality comes in fits and starts. Libra's mind is searching and clear, while Taurus can stubbornly hold to one viewpoint. The Bull sees red when Libra starts casting too wide a net, flirting and attracting all over the place.

Libra lives to converse, but Taurus will find all that talk exhausting. Taurus may be alarmed by Libra's constant pushing for changes in the relationship and may begin to resent the upheaval. Taurus and Libra have to strive for mutual understanding for this pairing to work. When it's good, it's about living well and with abundance, but when things go wrong, this relationship could hit a relationship cul-de-sac.

Upside: Both love the finer things, eye for style and craftsmanship, foodies, appreciate an elegant home, romantics.

Downside: Unrealistic expectations, a sensualist meets an intellectual, the Bull's lusty animalistic side makes Libra crinkle her nose. Each should be realistic about:

Taurus and Libra Love Story

"The Taurus man is hot and cold. I have known a Taurus man for years and he has recently expressed interest in me. But he moves so slowly to ask me out that I don't have the patience to wait a month for a date. I like him a lot. Doesn't he understand that other men are interested in me and he can lose the chance if he doesn't ask me out?"
