Both signs are mythically linked to strongly built beasts. There's plenty of physical endurance to keep the love going into the night. Lots of love gymnastics and sensuality. It's a passionate love match! But a few red flags are hoisted when it comes to long-term romance. Unless other energies bring balance, Taurus and Sagittarius find themselves a temperamental odd couple. Taurus craves security and roots. Sagittarius thrives in freedom and movement. Taurus is slow earth and likes to stay put, while Sagittarius is fast fire -- the two elements are at odds. However, look for other love compatibility factors in the birth chart, especially the Moon and Venus signs. Both Taurus and Sagittarius, though have a lust for life, that sparks an initial attraction. The Bull is a conservative lover when it comes to commitment. Taurus asks, is this worth my investment? Sagittarius has a spirited, experimental outlook on love -- they'll try anything once! A seasoned Sagittarius, ready to explore deeper intimacy, is a better match here. Taurus in love is huggy, sensual, and possessive. Sagittarius in love is a free agent, socially curious, and easy-going. Lusty Lovers At the heady beginning of the affair, the settled sensual nature of the Bull intrigues the (centaur) Sagittarius. Sagittarius widens Taurus' world, gets them traveling, and introduces them to exotics of all kinds. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter and seems at times to have that lucky thing going on, even though they've got a reckless streak. Taurus can catch some of that optimism, and give living in the moment a try. Venus-ruled Taurus shows the Archer favorite cafes, artists, and musicians, a collection of artisan this and that. Tensions rise if Taurus prefers mainly home-bound pleasures, while Sagittarius wants to be out and about. They demonstrate their love physically, and that unspoken language is a strong glue. They'll need some compromise, to satisfy different social tempos. Taurus is the sign of heightened senses, that craves slow pleasures. Sagittarius may be more quick to the punch, and athletic, in pursuit of carnal desires. Slow and Swift The restless Sagittarius finds the Taurean focus too fixed at times, and starts to consider the Bull slothful and a bit of a dullard. Sagittarius can be just as zealous about their opinions, and if judgments begin flying, it can be hard to find common ground again. The explosive, adventure-seeking Sagittarian nature sets off alarms for the more cautious, productivity-minded Taurus. Taurus may think Sagittarius too scattered and careless. The last straw comes when Sadge bluntly tells the Bull what's wrong with their way of doing things. Under perceived threat, the Bull stubbornly stomps in place a few times, and might just show that rarely seen, but legendary rage. Some rather alarming wrestling can become a pattern. But if Taurus and Sagittarius have their eyes open, and know the danger signs, their differences could make this an interesting mojo blend. The Pros of a Taurus-Sagittarius Love Match Both signs have strong libidos, enjoy sampling new cuisine and cultural activities together, cut to the chase, and are very physical. They're hedonists who love a good party, but also realists who deal with 'what is.' The Cons of a Taurus-Sagittarius Love Match Both signs may have their patience tested. The possessive Bull makes walls close in for Sagittarius; While Taurus is chill, the Sagittarius moves at a fast pace. Taurus travels with steamer trunk while Sagittarius packs light.
