Taurus can also get introverted, enjoying rest and enjoys nothing more than the laid-back appeal of home and tradition. When it comes to sex, Aries is not about the climax, but the steady, gentle passion and enjoys putting in the time in foreplay and build-up. Taurus approaches emotions the same way – through gentle words, actions, and service in day-to-day work.

Taurus may seem like a drag for the always excited and looking for fun Gemini, and Taurus is racking his brains trying to keep up. At its worst, tempers can come flaring from the two, and Gemini is not afraid to speak its mind and can get ugly.
At it’s best, the two will find each other’s weakness as a place that they can complement with their strengths. Planning can be made fun through spontaneity, and adventures can be less dangerous through caution.
#10 Taurus – Sagittarius
An earth and fire, and fixed and mutable signs, the difference between the two is not necessarily sun and moon – but Venus and Jupiter, their ruling planets. Sagittarius tend to be irresponsible and a jokester, which may be infuriating for the always dependable Taurus. Sagittarius will be likely bored with this match-up, Taurus on the other hand will be rattled with the tactlessness and recklessness of the archer.

Sex will be fiery but other than this, not much connection can be found between the two.
#12 Taurus – Aquarius

Taurus are down-to-earth but temperamental, while an Aquarius is on the unconventional side and can be aloof. Aquarius will find dealing with Taurus’ temper and moodiness a waste of time and find Taurus’ tendency to go for safe boring. Domineering Aquarius will not appreciate the stubbornness of Taurus. Taurus wants a secure partnership from the get-go while an Aquarius wants freedom – and this can really dampen intimacy.
