Upside: Both love the finer things; eye for style and craftsmanship; foodies; appreciate an elegant home; romantics.
Downside: Unrealistic expectations; a sensualist meets an intellectual; the Bull's lusty animalistic side makes Libra crinkle nose.Fixed Earth (Taurus) and Cardinal Air (Libra)
Both Taurus and Libra are ruled by the love planet Venus. And Venusians tend to share a love of material excess and sensual indulgence. There's a strong physical attraction at the get go, which makes them ignore clashing personality traits. Will it last? If the ideal can meet the real, yes!
Taurus and Libra are signs that love to be in love. Libra is a breezy dream to Taurus, who appreciates this air sign's social grace and elegant style in dress, conversation. Libra is intrigued by the settled aura of the Bull, bringing up visions of a happy domestic life. They go far together sharing the finer things, both being connoisseurs of refined pleasures. With Libra mingling and Taurus serving up the appetizers, you've got a great party host duo here.
Look at Venus for clues here. In Taurus, Venus is languid, sensuous and an attractor (a feminine earth sign). In Libra, Venus is moving on air, concepts, the idea of fairness in all things. If Taurus is too stuck in their ways, with a side of selfish, Libra's balance-alarm blinks red. And Libra can be exhausting to the chill Bull -- too much togetherness and chatting at times.
Libra is a cardinal sign, which is always pushing at the edge. And it's a sign that has a reputation of constantly pushing for reform in relationship. This can seem provocative and highly irritating to the more easy-going Taurus. The Bull is about contentment, and chafes at constant pressure to improve things.
When trying to relate longterm, both Libra and Taurus can fall into times of passive inaction. They're both very ambitious signs, but act on their terms, and with a strategy that makes sense to their nature.
The Taurus rhythm is steady, but slow, and Libra's vitality comes in fits and starts. Libra's mind is searching and clear, while Taurus can stubbornly hold to one viewpoint. The Bull sees red when Libra starts casting too wide a net, and flirting and attracting all over the place. Libra lives to converse, but Taurus will find all that talk exhausting. Taurus may be alarmed by Libra's constant pushing for changes in the relationship, and begin to resent the upheaval. Taurus and Libra have to strive for mutual understanding for this pairing to work. When it's good, it's about living well and with abundance, but when things go wrong, this relationship could hit a relationship cul-de-sac.
