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 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 Scorpio man or Scorpio woman.
Often Scorpio is criticized for being too jealous with partners, but you're one of the few signs who will see it for what it is, and probably find it flattering and endearing.
In a worst case scenario your stubbornness could make for a bad match with their jealousy, however both of you are so totally loyal that this shouldn't be too much of a problem either way.
On the surface you're very similar, but underneath you're very different; while you're generally a relaxed and laid back person, your Scorpio is often a hive of mental and emotional activity. You'll probably come to admire and appreciate your their intensity and passion.
You'll soon also come to appreciate your Scorpios gift for being intuitive this is a person who sometimes borders on the psychic when it comes to knowing things they shouldn't! Fortunately you're such an open and straightforward person that this won't cause the issues it might otherwise.
Scorpio is also a master negotiator, and while this may frustrate you initially it's actually a very valuable skill to have in your team toolbox. You'll come to appreciate your partners advice on how to better understand and handle others.
You may find your Scorpios secret nature to be somewhat frustrating, but on the positive side you'll enjoy how mysterious and intriguing this makes them. This phenomenon will diminish as you gain more trust from your partner.
Your partner is more emotional than you are, and will in many ways bring out the best in you because of it. As an example, Taurus is more sensual, while Scorpio is more passionate. The net result will be to bring out the romantic in each of you.
You're both inclined towards being thrifty and often interested in investment, and together make a great team financially, avoiding much of the potential friction you might have with other partners. You're slightly more prone to extravagance than your partner is, but by the rest of the worlds standards you're pretty much on the same page.
Within the zodiac you're opposites, and will find each other both fascinating and frustrating at different times. However, you have much in common, for example: you're both determined and ambitious; you both tend to prefer staying in to going out, you both expect total loyalty and can be sure of it with each other. You both can be inclined towards being pessimistic.
Be wary of arguments! You both can be incredibly stubborn, and it's likely you both have bad tempers if pushed far enough. On the bright side, if a Taurus Scorpio relationship can survive the first year, then very often it becomes a keeper!
A Taurus Scorpio relationship will almost certainly have some very strong sexual chemistry. You both tend to enjoy slower lovemaking, and your partners passionate nature will do much to inspire your sensuality, and vice versa, both bringing out the best in each other.
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.
