Taurus and Sagittarius is often a very challenging match, with very little in common or much desire to compromise on key issues. The 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 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 Sagittarius man or Sagittarius woman.
In many ways this partner is your total opposite, irresponsible and unreliable, and may at times feel more like a child than a lover!
Of course, there's also a positive side to this. Sagittarians are fun! Optimistic to the point of being carefree and reckless, your Sagittarius isn't held back by much - their zest for life and blind faith in the future taking care of itself may repeatedly amaze you.
Sagittarians also tend to be very spontaneous and free spirited, traits you may find either refreshing or irritating in a long term partner.
You tend to be home loving, while your Sagittarius is often more interested in travel and adventure, preferring not to be tied down. This also applies to making a commitment too early in relationships, which conversely is likely to be very important to you.
Another area of potential conflict is communication. You pride yourself on being rational and honest at all times, and so does your Sagittarius. However, their delivery is legendary for being blunt, direct and abrasive.
They rarely feel that something is better left unsaid, and may feel that you're not being honest in your approach, while you may feel they're just unnecessarily rude! Neither of you is likely to change your view in this area.
You're more sensual and erotic, while your Sagittarius is more spontaneous and fun loving.
With compromise this can be a good match, offering the best of both worlds, however you may both feel like something is missing without that compromise. For example, you may both wish the other was more romantic.
The main problem here is that you're not on the same page. If you can both make the effort to understand and respect the others viewpoint and needs it can make for a very complimentary team.
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 sensible, stable, responsible and predictable. They enjoy routines, tradition and long term planning. They also thrive on stability and security.
In many respects this is exactly the type of down to earth partner you need, and indeed in a business partnership it can work very well without much effort.
Sadly, in a romantic involvement this partner is likely to seem dull or smothering at times, while they may find you reckless and lacking in self discipline. You like to have fun, and in many ways this partner is way too serious for you. They may feel more like a parent than a lover sometimes.
Very practical and down to earth, Taurus often likes to be in charge of a relationship, and if there's one thing you dislike, it's being controlled.
Your Taurus is likely to be more stubborn than you are, so while you may initially attempt to be flexible and accommodate them in the long term you're unlikely to change them.
On the plus side, this partner is likely to be exceptionally good with money, and usually 100% loyal. Neither of these traits are usually near the top of a Sagittarians 'lover wish list' - though possibly they should be!
A final area of potential conflict is your directness and brutal honesty. This is likely to rub your Taurus the wrong way and create argument occasionally - your Taurus pride themselves on their rational thought and honesty, but they deliver it in a diplomatic way. They often have a lot of difficulty accepting that you need to be so direct to do so.
You're more spontaneous and fun loving while your Taurus is more sensual and erotic. In the short term this can be a fun match, but in the long term you're both likely to feel something is missing unless a compromise is reached.
This can be an exciting and challenging relationship, offering the best of both worlds - your sense of fun and your partners down to earth practicality. If you can meet in the middle you'll both learn much from the experience, and end up with a very strong relationship.
With that said, it won't just happen and will need nurturing and understanding on both sides to get around some of the obstacles listed above.
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.
