Taurus and Aquarius is often a challenging relationship to make work. The very low scores represent the initial compatibility of this match. However, you are both strong willed enough to make this work, and if you succeed the scores would be much higher.
If you can both adapt to the others style this is a relationship which will improve steadily over time, and eventually rival any other match. The low scores represent only the initial compatibility of this match.
These scores show the averages for data collected from my clients over the past 20 years. It's important to note however that individual relationships vary enormously. This is a summarized picture, a real compatibility reading is needed to judge a real relationship. It's also worth noting that Soulmates can be found in any sun sign match, even those which are statistically likely to have low compatibility.
This article is in two halves, the first is written from the viewpoint of the Taurus man or Taurus woman, and the second is written from the viewpoint of the Aquarius man or Aquarius woman.
This is an unlikely match based off just sun signs. If you've got as far as dating, then one or both of you has almost certainly got some strong contrary influences in your natal chart (so take this sun sign only generalization with a pinch of salt)
You're both unconventional in your own ways and capable of being very stubborn. While not individually a problem, in match with someone with such a radically different view of life it doesn't bode well.
Your Aquarius is an intellectual partner, full of new ideas and concepts, and often with a rebellious streak which favors trying new approaches constantly.
Often highly creative, and with an inherent desire not to be tied down or restricted by a person, society or expectations. It's likely you will feel they are reluctant to commit to the relationship as early as you would like. While usually totally faithful, your Aquarius may hate the concept of belonging to someone else.
This is a visionary partner who rarely cares for routines, etiquette or schedules, who you may feel is both rebellious, lacking in self discipline or just plain contrary!
You like stability, while it may often appear this partner likes a little chaos occasionally. While they don't like chaos for it's own sake, they do like to shake things up sometimes. Overall, you're a sentimental guardian of the past, while your Aquarius is a high tech light always probing ways to make a better future.
A highly analytical and objective person, your Aquarius is likely to often be preoccupied and perhaps a little distant. You prefer a more intimate relationship on this level, and may start to feel somewhat lonely emotionally, while they may find you needy or smothering.
From the above you can probably already tell this partner is the total opposite of yourself! This can make for an endlessly stimulating relationship - If you both have the patience to understand and respect the others needs and viewpoints (life would be very dull if everyone was identical, after all).
I've noticed two key elements to successful couples in challenging relationship matches. The first is attitude - both partners need to accept that "differences are good" and not a negative thing - laugh about them, don't criticize them. The second is the desire to understand and respect your partners needs and viewpoints.
I mention the above here, because.. well, Taurus's have been known to be a little stubborn over accepting other peoples viewpoints. Sometimes :)
An exciting lover, you won't be disappointed with your Aquarians open mind or willingness to experiment. On the other hand, they may not always give you the level of emotional connection you prefer, and you may start to feel they don't take sex as seriously as you do.
It's important to note however that we're looking only at sun signs here. There are many other planets which can have an equal or greater effect on someone's personality. Makes sense, as ultimately everyone is of course unique. Generalizing too far based just on sun signs can therefore be misleading.
To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results.
This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information: everything from how they view you, how to turn them on, how to avoid arguments with them etc. If you would like to explore this further please see the compatibility readings page.
Your Taurus is likely to be a very conservative, traditional, predictable and down to earth partner - reliable, solid and just plain comfortable!
Taurus's are very likeable, with many endearing quirks which often defy logical analysis. For example they can often become very attached to routines, performing obscure tasks with diligence simply because "I've always done this" and often refusing to consider the option of changing. They're a sentimental guardian of the past, while you're a high tech explorer of the future.
You're both unconventional in your own ways and capable of being very stubborn. While not individually a problem, in match with someone with such a radically different view of life this can create some issues.
In many respects you're opposite to this partner. You like a high level of independence, both in thought and love, while this partner enjoys tradition, routines and often has a great need for a very committed relationship.
This is a partner who likes to plan everything in advance, while you often prefer a far more spontaneous approach to life. It's likely your Taurus will want (or demand) a firm commitment from you far earlier than you will feel comfortable giving it. They want to know where they stand, and are mentally mapping out the next 30 years, while you're wondering what's for lunch!
No matter how much you enjoy your Taurus you may find it difficult to make them secure in this respect - they just don't share your concept of independence within a long term relationship.
At the extreme, you may at times find your Taurus boring, unimaginative and predictable in these areas, while they find you too unconventional, independent and rebellious. As in all things, compromise, understanding and respect are key.
This partner is a relatively serious lover, whereas you tend to be much more playful and light hearted, not needing the same high level of ritual, bonding or surrounding affection. Sometimes you just want sex, while they will nearly always want to make love.
It's also likely that your Taurus will need encouragement to appreciate anything too unconventional in the bedroom. Again, you can choose to look on this as hard work, or you can choose to look at it as an exciting opportunity to corrupt them! Don't be surprised if the phrase "wow, I've never done that with anyone else before!" doesn't get said a lot...
Overall this is a partner you may feel is sometimes too needy or clingy, who in the long term is likely to ground you way too much for your taste. Keep in mind then that these are positive traits, which you will benefit from if you become more tolerant of them.
So is this article conclusive? No! This article is based only on sun sign interaction. In order to provide a lot of people with information it's a convenient and fast way to generalize, but it's far from conclusive at this broad level. To get a complete picture we need to take all the other planets and their interactions into account for each of you, with a real astrology reading...
