Taurus and Leo can be a challenging relationship to make work. The low scores represent the initial compatibility of this match. However, you're 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 a high initial challenge, and not a long term pessimistic 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 Leo man or Leo woman.
This relationship is a battle of practicality and patience (yours) vs passion and ego (your Leos). You tend to be down to earth and sensible, while your Leo tends to be dramatic and extravagant.
You like to plan and work towards a better and more secure tomorrow, while your Leo is often more interested in living large today.
Leo is an egocentric partner, who by nature tends to take credit for things around them. Your partner probably lives for attention and praise, and may be unhappy without a minimum level of excitement and drama in their life. To a degree, the success of this match depends on how okay you are with all this.
You like to be appreciated, while your Leo likes to be admired. This is subtle but important difference. You want security and affection, while your Leo mainly just wants admiration and attention.
There's a good chance that neither of you will be impressed with the others style, unless you make the effort to see each others strengths, needs and viewpoint.
You both can have bad tempers, and being fixed signs you both can be very stubborn at times. Fights are likely to end in an ugly stalemate if you let them escalate far enough. Neither of you are known for backing down when provoked.
You both appreciate the finer things in life - quality and luxury possessions and vices. You both tend to be possessive and jealous, valuing commitment and loyalty in a partner. Neither of you give up easily.
Money can be an issue in this relationship. You like to save for a rainy day (at least until you have a substantial nest egg) while your Leo likes to spend and enjoy - often as a way to demonstrate their success to the world.
Leo is also typically a very social partner, while you tend to value time at home more highly, often not wanting to go out and mingle unless there's a good reason to.
You're more sensual, while your Leo is more passionate. Like your respective elements (you're earth and your partner is fire) there's a danger of earth extinguishing Leos fiery passion, rather than fueling it.
As in other areas of the relationship you don't see the need for drama, while it can be one of the main things which turn a Leo on. As with other fire signs, arguments have been known to make them amorous.
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 like to be admired, while your Taurus likes to be appreciated. This is subtle but important difference. Your partner wants security and affection, while you need admiration and attention. However neither of you will be impressed with the others style enough to offer much positive feedback in this area, unless you make the effort to do so.
This relationship is a battle of practicality and patience (Taurus) vs passion and ego (Leo). You tend to be dramatic and extravagant, while your Taurus is down to earth and sensible. You want to live large, while your Taurus wants to plan and constantly work towards a better and more secure tomorrow.
The biggest thing you have in common is that you're both fixed signs, and therefore very stubborn. When you disagree on many things this of course isn't good! You also both can have bad tempers, so fights are likely to be ugly, and gridlocked. You both appreciate the finer things in life - quality and luxury possessions and vices.
You both tend to be possessive and jealous, valuing commitment and loyalty in a partner. Neither of you give up easily.
Money is likely to be an issue. Your Taurus very much likes to save for a rainy day, while you like to spend and enjoy.
You're very social while your Taurus is far more of a homebody, and sooner or later will stop wanting to go out as frequently as you do. This is a very practical partner, and as in other areas of the relationship your extravagance may put them off.
Your Taurus is more sensual, while you're more passionate. You may wish your partner was more emotional at times, and like your respective elements (you're fire and your partner is earth) there's a danger of earth extinguishing your fiery passion rather than fueling it.
So is this article conclusive? No! This article is based only on sun sign interaction.
