Does the stubborn, fixed energy of the bull blend seamlessly with the flighty, cerebral energy of the twins? In many cases, astrology says yes. Astrological signs that favor different elements can be a brilliant match because two very different people with different strengths can fortify each other and teach them valuable lessons.
In this article, we will shed light on the compatibility between Taurus and Gemini – in friendship, relationship, and in bed.
Let’s begin with Taurus
Taurus is the second zodiac sign of the calendar, ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty, abundance, and love. Taurus loves to cultivate a peaceful, comfortable home and is a sensual sign that loves fine wine, gourmet food, and a satisfying physical relationship.
Taurus is a fixed sign, ruled by the earth. This makes them very solid and hardworking. If they were offered a small, cozy house or a ticket for a trip around the world, they will definitely choose the first option as a sense of security and comfort is extremely important to them.
One of the only ways to truly upset Taurus is to somehow question their decision making, or prevent them from accomplishing a task. They are of such a nature that when they start something, they want to finish it at any cost. If you tarnish Taurus’s reputation as a dependable worker bee, the wrath of the bull will emerge. Taurus can be set in their ways, but they are not known for being hot-headed, unlike Aries. Most of the time, Taurus is patient and will do just about anything to keep the peace.
How about Gemini?
Gemini is the third zodiac sign of the calendar, ruled by Mercury. The twins of the horoscope are philosophical, intellectual, and free-spirited. Gemini is famous for having a dual nature that can prove both exciting and confusing to those in Gemini’s orbit. They have boundless energy and love to explore, experiment, and try new things. Gemini always has countless projects going at once and has a great ability to do more than one thing at a time.
Gemini is a mutable air sign, which means Gemini tends to be in many places at once, both mentally and physically. Gemini gets easily worked up, but tends to be a fun, intelligent, and adventurous companion who keeps life exciting. The twins love to gossip but do not have a vengeful or calculating nature. They are mostly curious and highly intelligent people with boundless energy that people find attractive.
If they were offered, like the Taurus, a small, cozy house or a ticket for a trip around the world, they will incline to the second option, because traveling and living life to the fullest is very important to them. They stick to the motto: “Live for today because yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come.”
When Taurus and Gemini Meet
Gemini and Taurus have much to offer each other. Gemini can coax dull and domestic Taurus to try new things and Taurus can help high-strung Gemini relax and be a little more grounded. Sensual Taurus can excite curious Gemini in the bedroom and cerebral Gemini can help expand Taurus’s intellectual horizons.
It is known that such signs, whose elements are favorable, work best together. For example, the air sign goes well with the fire, because adding air to the fire creates an even bigger fire. Water signs, in contrast, go well with earth signs, because the earth gives water space to flow. However, with Gemini and Taurus, it is different. This is probably due to the proximity of these two signs, which sit side by side in the horoscope.
Taurus and Gemini Strengths
Communication, the basis of every relationship, works great between the two. Geminis are mostly the ones who talk, and Taurus likes to listen to their other half. The bull, being a very receptive sign, remembers as many details as possible, and here and there surprises the Gemini with something the twins talked about a long time ago.
Taurus, a practical sign ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty and art, can create beautiful works of art. In order to do so, they need an idea and motivation, and Gemini is the one who will help them with that.
Geminis are the ones who come up with new ideas and are the brains of this couple, whereas the bulls are the ones who make and turn thoughts or ideas into reality. In this respect, Gemini and Taurus form a couple that could work great not only personally, but also professionally.
If the two travel together, Gemini will show Taurus the most interesting places, views, and hidden gems. In return, Taurus will reward their Gemini friend or partner with an invitation to a delicious dinner.
Taurus and Gemini Challenges
The most common trigger for difficulties in their relationship is the living energy of Gemini. While Gemini sees the meaning of life in experiences, pleasant moments, and memories, Taurus needs to be surrounded by beautiful material things. In this respect, the views on the life of the two differ. Taurus thinks of Gemini as naive, and Gemini thinks of Taurus as materialistic.
It also seems to Taurus that they can’t keep up with Gemini. Gemini can get up early in the morning, clean the whole apartment, prepare the food, and reply to important emails, while Taurus still sleeps or lies in bed. The biggest problem occurs when the two travel. Gemini wants to see as much as possible during their stay abroad, but with a long-sleeping Taurus, this is a problem. Gemini begins to stress and they are also very likely to go on a trip or excursion without Taurus.
Taurus has great patience, as opposed to energetic Gemini, who would like to have everything right now and right here. Thus, Gemini’s impatience can irritate Taurus here and there.
Taurus and Gemini in Bed
Gemini and Taurus get very well along in the bed. Both signs like long foreplays and a long act. They are also very sensual and consider their time together in bed as a deeper connection than just a physical connection. Both want to touch, hugs, massage, romantic words, and want to “give” and “receive” equally. Usually, in such a relationship, no one is dominant or submissive.
Despite their differences, Gemini and Taurus have enough common ground to be strong friends and tender lovers. Both Gemini and Taurus embody the lightness and brightness of spring. Neither sign is prone to brooding or famous for holding grudges.
In the cosmos, the planets of Mercury and Venus are side by side. Gemini and Taurus fundamentally understand each other, even if they may have occasional superficial clashes. Earth and air need each other to remain in balance. When Gemini and Taurus meet, there is great potential for a joyful, lasting relationship that will enable both parties to learn and grow. Gemini and Taurus are just different enough to move forward in harmony while still keeping life interesting.
