Taurus and Gemini is a challenging match in most respects, as you have little in common and opposite temperaments.
The low scores represent the initial compatibility of this match. However, 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 a high initial challenge, and not a long term negative view.
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 Gemini man or Gemini woman.
While this isn't a horrible match in terms of ugly fights, it can become a slow and painful battle of temperaments if you let it.
If people call you stubborn, this is a match which will really bring that out! Your Gemini is impatient and highly articulate, and this relationship may sometimes feel like a barrage of a thousand arrows (your Gemini) bouncing off of a rock (you).
Gemini often dislikes routine - they like stimulation and even a little chaos. You're patient, they're often completely impatient. You'll probably lose arguments consistently as your Gemini is a master negotiator, which can get frustrating (especially if you know you're right but lose anyway!)
You may have trouble keeping up with your Gemini, who tends to be very active and busy. You certainly admire and value hard work, but you really don't enjoy the chaos, bustle or inefficiency of Gemini's rampant style. Even in areas such as sleep you may be incompatible - you like a good 7+ hours, while your Gemini may well be happy on just 5.
Gemini is outgoing and sociable, while you're far more reclusive. Arguments over whether to go out or stay in will likely arise, and your Gemini will end up going out without you. Couple this with your desire for commitment, and your Gemini's friendly and spontaneous nature, and you can see where this is heading.
You like material possessions and creature comforts, while Gemini values knowledge and information over possessions, which they often look at more as a ball and chain. You like the tangible, while they value concepts more. You value the home while your Gemini can live in a hotel and be fine with it as long as they have a phone and laptop to keep in touch with the world.
Compromise is of course the key to all this. This relationship can easily be good however unlike some it won't "just happen" on its own. This is a relationship where you really need to understand your partner, and appreciate the differences between you.
Without compromise (or the right attitude) this is a relationship which you may find exhausting at times. You may consider your partner too flighty or unstable, while they find you too predictable.
Let your partner bring out your wild and reckless side occasionally, and enjoy that opportunity!
You'll find your Gemini enjoys variety - while you really don't. They often have a fondness for the occasional quickie, where you're less likely to. Similarly, Gemini is often more stimulated verbally than physically. You're a master in the bedroom, but certainly not because you keep a narrative running!
As in other areas this can make for the best of both worlds, or it can be a recipe for frustration.
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.
You're spontaneous, witty and adaptable, while your Taurus is cautious, sensible and stubborn.
Without understanding and mutual tolerance there's a danger they'll see you as flighty and unstable, and you'll see them as boring and predictable. You'll both probably find the other to be too much work, until a compromise is reached.
You do best under pressure, enjoy a little chaos, and like to be busy. Your Taurus likes planning, stability and routine. You like stimulation while your Taurus prefers security. You'll find your Taurus to be slow and deliberate in most things, and their patience to be infinite by your standards.
Taurus is very home loving, likes creature comforts and places relatively little value on ideas or concepts. Meanwhile you like to go out, socialize and have adventures, and don't place nearly as high of a value on staying at home every night. Even in areas such as sleep you may be incompatible - Taurus generally likes a lot, and you like comparatively little.
On the bright side, you'll easily win most arguments, however this is very much a case of winning the battles, while losing the war. No one can wear down a Taurus through attrition!
You can be partial to the occasional quickie, and probably favor variety over routine. Meanwhile your Taurus probably isn't and doesn't! This is a partner who likes physical affection, and has little need for communication during sex.
This makes for a great opportunity to "see the other side" of things, and with compromise can be a good match. Without some patience and understanding on both sides it also has the potential to be frustrating at times.
