When Taurus and Scorpio come together, the result is two signs opposite one another in the Zodiac so a blending of two halves. Signs in polarity such as these often combine to make a whole, each partner’s strengths balancing the other’s weaknesses. Signs in polarity often have a strong sexual attraction, and when they are together the barometer may rise! Taurus and Scorpio have a great deal in common, but because they have such powerful personalities this relationship is often one that goes back and forth from passionate love to passionate disagreement!
Taurus and Scorpio enjoy working together toward owning things: Taurus wants possessions and Scorpio wants power. Both of these Signs are about wealth and resources, including inheritances and taxes. They are both passionate about all aspects of life. They complement each other because Taurus is more about the self while Scorpio is about the immediate group, including family. Additionally, Taurus is more direct while Scorpio is mysterious. Because of their differences, both Signs can grow and learn from each other if they can agree to compromise.
Venus rules Taurus and Scorpio are ruled by Mars and Pluto. This combination is very intense, thanks to Pluto’s influence, but it’s a good balance of masculine and feminine energy. The two Signs coming together form the basic foundation of human relationships — Venus’ love and Mars’ passion. Venus and Mars go well together; Venus is about the beauty of romance, and Mars is about the passion of romance. Scorpio is smoldering and intense, and Taurus is attracted to this intensity; in turn, Scorpio enjoys the devotion inherent in Venus-ruled Taurus.
Taurus is an Earth Sign and Scorpio is a Water Sign. Scorpio is a very deep Sign; it’s an ocean, and too much upset will cause a tidal wave! Scorpio emotionally recedes and recedes, then suddenly roars back with a vengeance. Taurus and Scorpio are strongly loyal to each other, a product of their mutual need for emotional security. But while Taurus is open, with everything laid bare on the surface, Scorpio is more focused on the undercurrents of life. Scorpio can show Taurus beyond the literal surface, while Taurus can teach Scorpio that a spade is sometimes just a spade. Additionally, Scorpio appreciates the Taurean practicality and Taurus enjoys Scorpio’s jealousy — it proves they are adored and appreciated.
Taurus and Scorpio are both Fixed Signs. Once they have a common goal, nothing will get in the way. If the opinions of these partners are different, though, explosions may ensue! It often appears that Taurus will get prevail as the dominant partner, but that isn’t always the case. Sometimes Scorpio won’t even agree to disagree, although they might pretend to give in and later gain revenge through emotional manipulation. It’s important for these partners to discuss what is truly important to them so they can reach an equitable compromise. Once Scorpio learns to trust Taurus and understand the implications of a “partnership”, the pair can achieve almost anything through sheer determination. The relationship will only fail if the two partners truly cannot overcome their opinionated, fixed sides.
The best aspect of the Taurus-Scorpio relationship is their powerful teamwork when they agree on their goals. When Scorpio realizes that Taurus is there for the long term, and will not create the misery that some Scorpios attract to their lives, this relationship can blossom. Their mutual determination makes theirs a relationship of formidable strength.
