How To Get Along – Taurus and Libra
The Bull and the Scales
This series on AstroCompatibility will cover all of the potential matchups in the Zodiac. We will continue this series thinking about and commenting on Taurus and Libra. You can get an EBOOK with all 12 possible matchups in one document, for each sun sign, including, of course, Taurus and Libra at Christofer's new website: http://www.astrologygetalong.com.
Taurus - Libra
Libra is Air and Cardinal. Taurus is Earth and Fixed. However, they are both ruled by Venus. This brings a pleasantness and warmth to both of these signs. Libra is a much stronger and more firm opponent than many signs will admit. They are the only inanimate signs of the zodiac. This should send a message. They are coldly unconquerable from an argumentative point of view. Taurus, using their power and stability brings sound conservative actions to this couple. Libra likes this and sees the Bull as reasonable. And the Taurus does not need to take on Libra at every turn.
Libra and intellect go hand in hand. Libra is about balancing it all. The Art of Love is held by Librans as a thing to master. Playboy, or playgirl, they can see mastery in so many of life’s challenges. They are about getting their way. Not so much to just get their way, but because their way is the reasonable, well thought out, measured way. Librans are restless down to their toes. The irony is that their goal of absolute balance is not really achievable in their dynamic dualistic world. Thus enters the Taurus from stage left. The Taurus, in their ingenious approach to existence, can sleep soundly, digest fully and appreciate completely, while the world spins in its chaotic way, with all of its parts in a state of flux.
Positive Postulate: Venus’s ruler ship of both of these signs, declares that a positive spin will always be a part of the public relations campaign for this couple or partnership. Taurus is about making cozy, making comfortable, making peaceful and rich. Libra loves to try all of these things and analyze why coziness and comfort should be the reasonable predominant rule. Taurus’s existential comfort and Libra’s intellectual balance will create a picture of optimistic realization. This may not be the inner reality, all kinds of turmoil could be cooking, but the outer image should be well taken care of.
Romance Recommendation: Taurus will take very kindly to Libra’s artful approach to love. Libra will smile at Taurus’s sensuality. They could both bask in the beautiful balance of romance pulled off like a Hollywood flick. If there are no outstanding problems, romance could be one of the big positives to the togetherness of this couple. If there are problems, intimacy could be affected, but since the ideal and standard could be set so high, a lack of intimacy might hasten the solution to those problems.
Conflict Quotient: Libra, like a lawyer, can take four different angles on an argument, looking reasonable and sounding reasonable as they keep their outer composure. This can have the dual effect of making the arguing party feel as if their arguments are not as valid, and also make them doubt themselves. Taurus is blessed however, with a self assurance that transcends reason. Being bull headed came to colloquial use because the bull is just going to do what it is going to do. It does not need an apparent reason. This can confound Libra. Libra hates to be confounded, especially when it is only the will and not the head that is involved. It is hard to know who has the edge here, but it does not matter, as the conflict will probably be concluded well, because they both really dislike it.
Peace Parlay: Life in the end is repetitive and mundane, and so is Romance itself. This factor asks the question: "Can we be bored together over the long term?" Libra, at rest, with nothing going on in its head can actually be downright boring. Thankfully though, this does not happen to the Libra frequently. Taurus would not see “boredom” in the same way as Libra might. Boredom for a Taurus would lie in lacking what it needs, and being stuck in a spot where they can not improve their condition. Taurus will do its best not to let that happen, and Libra, always wanting to balance its environment would also be committed not to allow the couple to sink into a listless colorless boredom.
Keep Up The Interest Graph: Libra’s purpose is beauty and balance. Just through technique and freshly conjured new ideas, they can spruce up the rooms in their houses, and the activities of their friend, Taurus. Taurus can lavish Libra with the newly purchased niceties of physical life, and Libra can weave a new rationale for the newest edgy philosophy of life that they are going to embrace. As long as Libra still cares, they would bring their fertile mind to the fore. As long as Taurus is still lowing with its soothing vocal tones and their bringing their mellow smile, they can both keep up new and revitalized interest.
Seven Year Itchiness: There are some signs that by their nature are more stable in their love interests and family concerns as time goes on. Others are not. The Libra is the most talented lover in the zodiac. That does not necessarily mean that they are promiscuous or indiscriminate. Actually, Libras are discriminating. However, the 7 Year Itch is there as a kind of filtering agent, and both Libra and Taurus could fall prey. Though there is a conservatism in both. This would mean that temptation would have to sprout from true deep dissatisfaction or anger and hurt and probably arise through “accident” (unconscious calculation) and then come about through indirection.
ASTROCOMPATIBILITY POSSIBILITY RATING: 80% Positive Long Term - 75% Short Term. Libra and Taurus could enjoy their first encounter. As they got to know each other, and saw even more similarities, they could be dynamite. This is a good natural match; Their differences could actually build their individuality. Taurus could soothe troubled Libra in general. Libra could give a focus to Taurus.
