Taurus and Scorpio are often drawn together, and this intense and powerful connection can work well in a platonic friendship, a business partnership, or a romantic match, provided that jealousy or mutual stubbornness don’t destroy the relationship. When things go well with this pairing, the connection is beautiful and transcendent; however, if these two clash on any issue, the results can be explosive.
Both Taurus and Scorpio tend to be very loyal and stable unless other elements in their natal zodiacs incline them in other directions, which enhances their compatibility. Also, Taurus is laid back and easy going, and therefore less likely to make Scorpio feel threatened or provoked. And both signs tend to be hardworking and ambitious, so projects they undertake together have a higher-than-average likelihood of success. However, the prospects for this pair will probably depend on their ability to compromise. Because both individuals are strong-willed, it may be difficult for either to give any ground when conflicts arise, which can lead to a deadlock that poisons the relationship over time.
Shared interests are also important to the success of this match. While more independent types are fine going off and doing their own things, both Taurus and Scorpio tend to be possessive, and their jealousies are less likely to be triggered if they do things together on a regular basis.
Communication is another challenging area for these two. Tauruses are slow to anger, so they don’t usually bring things up until they become relationship-destroying issues, and Scorpios are often secretive about their feelings. This can lead to a situation where issues festering beneath the surface finally bubble up and explode, driving these two apart.
On the plus side, Scorpio and Taurus have some important things in common that can increase the likelihood of relationship success. Both usually like to spend time at home and alone with their partners. Both like to pursue some solitary projects and interests, and they will respect one another’s perseverance and strength of will when it comes to seeing things through. In addition, both Taurus and Scorpio are fixed signs, which means that they are more likely to stick with their relationships, even if things grow difficult or dull. They are commitment-oriented and not inclined to be fickle, so neither is prone to abandoning relationships due to boredom or being a fair-weather friend. If these two part ways, it will probably be the result of irreconcilable differences rather than loss of interest.
Note: There is more to astrological compatibility than sun signs alone. Other elements in a person’s natal zodiac also play a role. Ascendants (rising signs), moon signs, and other planetary placements and aspects also shape personality and affect compatibility. For example, a Capricorn with Leo rising will be more extroverted than a typical Capricorn, and a Taurus with Aries rising or the moon in Sagittarius will be more compatible with Sagittarius than a typical Taurus.
