When Aries and Taurus come together in a love affair, the partnership is a natural union of Love, represented by Taurus, and Passion, represented by Aries. This relationship is all about balance. Aries wants to jump right in and get into it, while Taurus prefers to go much more slowly. This can create a problem; Taurus loves to be wooed and romanced — two concepts that are basically foreign to straightforward, brash, totally unsubtle Aries. An Aries-Taurus partnership can be a great learning experience for both Signs. Taurus can help Aries rein in some of the more foolish, impractical impulses, and Aries can help Taurus be more spontaneous and adventurous.
Aries is a Cardinal Sign, and Taurus is a Fixed Sign. In this relationship, Aries is not going to get their own way no matter how hard they try — so it’s a much better idea not to try at all. Taurus is a Fixed Sign that won’t budge; Aries will get much further with finesse and charm (Taurus is a real sucker for both) than with argument since Taurus never loses a debate. Both Signs want to be the leader in the relationship, so compromise is essential.
What’s the best aspect of the Aries-Taurus relationship? The passionate nature of the partnership. This is an excellent balance of energy between masculine and feminine, impulsive and deliberate. Their contrasting personalities and ability to learn from one another make theirs a mutually giving and satisfying relationship.
ARIES & TAURUS TRUST
Both of these signs have the ability to form a stable relationship filled with honesty. Neither of them is flaky or runs away from a good challenge. This can contribute to a positive attitude and open agreements on honesty when they are together. They both have a need to search for their one true love, as Mars and Venus always do. This can lead to infidelity and typical love triangle issues, due to lack of emotion from Aries or a lack of self-worth by Taurus partner. Still, if they communicate well from the beginning, they will usually find how important mutual trust is to both of them and try hard not to jeopardize it.
If you’re attracted to a Taurus then ultimately it’s because you admire or want the stability they can offer. In turn they most likely want to be slightly more carefree, bold or reckless. Neither of you can change who you are, so the workable solution is to understand and learn from each other, and not focus on fault-finding.
ARIES & TAURUS EMOTIONS
These are both highly emotional signs, but they don’t show it in the same way. It is safe to assume that as much as they may love each other, it will be difficult for both of them to know they are loved. Although some of the rituals can be taught in time, this is not a solution if they don’t feel enough closeness.Aries shows their emotions loudly and openly, in a way that is sort of rough and inpatient. They don’t give much time for the other person to give an emotion back, and act as Fire, their element, without much sense for anyone. Taurus may find this superficial, too intense or even phony, as they don’t recognize this type of behavior as love. Taurus shows their emotions in a silent, slow process of giving. They will show love through cooking, touching and gentle words. The problem is in the fact that Aries finds this boring, stiff or even untrue.
ARIES & TAURUS VALUES
This is an area in which they match quite well. Although they seem completely different, their main objectives are pretty much the same. They both value material security, since Aries is ruled by Mars, a planet connected to the fear of existential crisis, and Taurus is an Earth sign, material in their core and very inclined to the financial world. They both cherish character and strength, physical and verbal, and need someone who will not disappoint them as the first impression fades.
ARIES & TAURUS SHARED ACTIVITIES
Aries and Taurus really want completely different things. While Aries is active, ready to run, train and needs to use the energy through any kind of physical activity, Taurus has the need to rest and gather energy almost all the time. Even if they go for coffee together, there is a big chance Aries partner will finish theirs and be bored in about 20 minutes, while Taurus partner would sip their coffee enjoying it, than order some cake. The only activity they would both truly enjoy is a walk through the park and any slow outdoor activity to restore contact with nature.
This is a relationship full of personal challenges and individual depth. If they want to succeed as a couple, many internal issues in both must be solved. Only if they both accomplish peace in their lives, have just enough education, just enough other relationships and acquired just enough humor, they might be able to put aside their differences and listen to each other well enough. It is not that hard, except when you are used to using your horns.
