This can be a very supportive combination. Cancer provides the warmth, affection, and relationship security that Taurus craves, while Taurus offers the stability and loyalty that Cancer needs to feel safe. Taurus and Cancer can nurture and comfort one another, showing mutual compassion and treating each other gently and tolerantly, unless other elements in their natal zodiacs incline them toward uncharacteristic harshness.
In a romantic relationship, Cancer is inclined to see Taurean jealousy as a sign of love, while Taurus will find Cancer’s possessiveness reassuring rather than off-putting. These two will enjoy spoiling one another with good food and thoughtful gifts, and even-tempered Taurus should have a stabilizing effect on Cancer’s moods, while Cancer’s tendency to cater to partners and friends will make Taurus feel loved.
Cancer and Taurus will usually have similar lifestyle preferences, which increases their overall compatibility. If this pair move in together, they will probably prefer a place outside of the city center, somewhere relatively quiet with plenty of natural scenery. Their acquisitiveness and enjoyment of home-based projects will enable them to create a beautiful living space together. Both like to establish a comfortable home and turn it into a serene oasis away from the chaotic world outside. Although neither is inclined to seek out large, noisy social gatherings, they enjoy entertaining friends at home or spending time with others outdoors or in cozy local venues such as a small neighborhood pub or restaurant.
Taurus and Cancer tend to get along harmoniously when living together unless other elements in their natal zodiacs are highly incompatible, and they can also work well together in a business partnership because both tend to be reliable and devoted to anything they undertake. Their good work ethics and perseverance can be applied effectively to the development and growth of a business or the pursuit of individual projects they undertake together.
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.
