Taurus and Libra is a match with a number of challenges, though you may have more in common than it first appears. If you can both adapt to the others style this is a relationship which will improve steadily over time.
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 Libra man or Libra woman.
Libra is a very sociable partner who enjoys attention, and there's a good chance this will bring out your possessive side either directly (by appearing flirtatious) or indirectly (by always wanting to go out or be on the phone).
Worth a quick mention then, Libra is usually a 100% loyal partner, however they often feel the need to 'test' their attractiveness via flirting. It's harmless, but most Taurus's have little tolerance for it, triggering a vicious circle of becoming more jealous and possessive and pushing your Libra further away.
There may also be arguments over going out or staying in - while not unsociable you don't feel the need to have such a massive circle of friends as your Libra likely wants to maintain.
A very talkative partner, Libras love to debate and discuss, to weigh both sides of an argument and probe every angle of a situation - this can be tiring to some Taurus's, who often prefer to think about things in solitude and only discuss them afterwards - you don't feel the need to have a human sounding board to form opinions with, and may not feel the need to always find a fair or perfect solution. Libra is a very charismatic and skillful communicator, and very hard to ignore in this respect!
You're both ruled by Venus, and share a love of beauty and luxury in all forms, while both being highly diplomatic and charming (though your Libra is more likely to make an effort to be charming all the time, which you see as unnecessary). You both want a loyal partner and a committed relationship. You both can be highly romantic.
You tend to be pessimistic, while your partner is more of an optimist. You're more stubborn, and likely to have a bad temper if someone provokes you enough. This is likely to be very off-putting to your Libra if they see too much of it.
You're more of a physical lover while Libras are often more mental, enjoying romantic talks and a degree of romantic build up. Again in this area your preferences are likely to differ, you preferring cuddling and caressing while your partner prefers sexy conversation. This can work well, giving the best of both worlds, but only if you both are prepared to compromise.
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.
Taurus is an exceptionally stable, predictable and down to earth partner. It's very hard not to admire their strength of character and determination, though many Libras prefer a slightly more volatile, unpredictable or passionate lover (so it's your job to encourage and bring out that side of them!)
You're far more sociable, while your Taurus often is more of a homebody. Your outgoing nature will very likely be taken as being flirtatious, making your partner insecure. This will make them increasingly jealous and possessive, which may become a vicious circle if a compromise isn't reached fairly early.
When analyzing problems you're more of a communicator, while your partner is more of a solitary thinker. This may seem a trivial difference, however your Taurus is nothing if not stubborn, and an uncommunicative partner can be a major shortcoming for some Libras to accept.
Once a Taurus makes a decision it can be nearly impossible to dissuade them via conversation. You're much more flexible and your Taurus's stubborn side may be either something you admire, or something you just can't understand.
You're both ruled by Venus, and share a love of beauty and luxury, while being highly diplomatic and charming (though you're far more likely to make an effort to be charming all the time, while your Taurus is much more selective). You both want a loyal partner and a committed relationship, and you both can be highly romantic.
You tend to be optimistic, while your partner is likely to be more of a pessimist. As a rule you're more easy going, whereas your Taurus probably has a bad temper if pushed far enough (tip: don't!)
Taurus is a slow and sensual lover, and this can be a good match, with both of you leaning towards being romantic and patient lovers.
You tend to appreciate a fair amount of intellectual stimulation - such as poetry or sexy conversation, while your Taurus is more inclined to be physically romantic and tactile, enjoying cuddling and caressing. With compromise this can make for a great variety of experiences, or the failure to meet either of your needs without.
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...
