Love Matches -- Taurus and Leo

A Battle of Wills

By

Upside: High passion factor; the love lock here with loyalty is hard to break; hedonists loving life; proud of what's created together - home, children, material possessions; resourceful pair that works hard and plays hard.

Downside: Indifference as a strategy to drive the other crazy; compromise a challenge; rageful fights; stubborn to a fault.

Fixed Earth and Fixed Fire

Fixed signs can't seem to stay away from each other. Same holds true for Taurus and Leo, though that doesn't make it an easy relationship. There's a hard square here, for tension and conflict, but many Leo-Taurus couples prove that some prefer the path of most resistance.

When first dating, Leo enjoys being the prize possession of the Bull, who shows love with valuable or hand-crafted gifts and advice. Both are uninhibited pleasure-seekers, making sex the glue, and the catharsis for relationship frustrations.

High-spirited Leo helps Taurus cast off its cloak of reserve, and indulge in the moment. Both know how to have fun, often preferring languid, relaxed pleasures over sustained busyness. Taurus the builder prods Leo to put their wildest dreams into tangible reality.

The Love Glue

Further into the relationship, they'll discover that what doesn't kill their bond, makes it stronger. Here you have two notoriously stubborn types, and there are high noon showdowns throughout this relationship.

Tensions flare with Leo isn't getting the adulation they expect, or even the time of day. If Taurus is absorbed elsewhere for too long, the Lion roars! When Leo feels consistently dissed, like their needs don't matter, it can become a fundamental problem.

Taurus finds Leo demanding, and taxing on their mellow nature. Here's a couple that may argue all the time, but still end up side-by-side in rockers on the porch. It doesn't always work, but friction can be a refining force in relationships, too. It's love with an edge, and that keeps them wedged in for life.

High points are pride in children and other shared creations. Taurus and Leo are a creative team, if their formidable energies is diverted away from drama and clash of wills. They thrive together when that intensity goes into manifesting the dream.
