Taurus and Scorpio: Compatibility in Love, Sex and Life


When Taurus and Scorpio come together for love or any kind of relationship, opposites attract as passion is ignited! These two privacy-seeking signs prefer the comforts of their own home, which can lead to isolation if you don’t force yourselves to get out from time to time. A Taurus-Scorpio relationship can be sexy even through the mundane, since you both turn each other on with constructive criticism.

Taurus and Scorpio: Your compatibility clicks and clashes

Where you click:
Opposites attract…and burn with erotic charm! Like a pair of under-the-radar celebrities, your relationship often evolves in the most private of places. For both Scorpio and Taurus, your home is your castle…the kind with a drawbridge and a crocodile-filled moat. You live powerful lives in the outside world, and thus, you need to escape. There’s plenty of spicy stuff going on behind closed doors however, even if there’s a danger of becoming too insular as a couple. Sensual Taurus snaps sexy Scorpio out of “power games” mode, creating a safe space for vulnerability. Scorpio provides the security that quells Taurus’ abandonment issues. Ahhh. You’re both music lovers and stellar cooks, so entertaining as a couple will be a four-star experience for your lucky guests. 

Where you clash:
Both of your signs have a penchant for revenge—and if someone does you wrong, watch out! You won’t stop until the other person has PAID. Hell hath no fury like a Scorpio or Taurus scorned! Too much time in your bubble can breed contempt. If you don’t leave your nest every now and again (and nurture independent interests!), you can turn on each other with “constructive criticism.” If you find yourself focusing on the other’s flaws, let it be a sign…it’s time to separate from each other for a few hours!

Love and compatibility by element

Taurus is earth and Scorpio is water

For the most part this is a harmonious blend of two compatible energies. Both earth and water signs seek comfort, security and consistency. The two of you provide that nicely for each other. This is the kind of relationship that can even begin in primary school or college, then last throughout adulthood. You easily slip into a comfortable groove, especially once you live together. Your home can be a cozy, welcoming space—the hub for gathering family and longtime friends. Parenthood can be an area where you shine together, too.

There are differences, of course. The nature of water is emotional, while earth tends to be more grounded and practical. While a water sign might start a sentence with “I feel” an earth sign is probably more responsive to a statement that begins with “I think.” Feelings, to the earth sign, seem random and hard to follow—if there’s a problem in the relationship, the linear earth partner wants you to get to the point so they can figure out how to fix it. Unfortunately, the intuitive water sign doesn’t work that way. They need to process things in a more circular pattern, starting with their emotions and intuition—which, for water, is the most trustworthy guide. The earth sign must learn to respect the water sign’s “gut feelings,” even when they seem to defy sensibility and logic. By contrast, the water sign might want to unpack some of those emotions with a therapist or compassionate friend, rather than with the earth sign partner. Once the water sign gets to the root of what’s bothering them, THEN they can present it in a less emotionally-charged way to the earth sign. The result? The water sign will find a partner eager to problem-solve, rather than a defensive or dismissive person who patronizes them when they’re at their most vulnerable!

Your fluctuating moods may collide, causing dramatic fights that can escalate into an unnecessary cold war.

Earth signs can seem cold or overly harsh, doling out tough love when water sign feels sensitive. The water sign can get clingy and overly dependent, creating a parent-child dynamic. Make an effort not to lapse into these well-worn roles just because it’s easy. You can also get stuck in a rut of doing the same-old things or being fearful of change together. Bringing in a friend, colleague or family member who’s a more dynamic fire or air sign can help. You might even have a child together who’s a fire or air sign. Instead of treating them like the family misfit, allow them to introduce novel ideas to the clan, and respect their greater need for independence.

There are four elements in astrology: fire, earth, air and water. Each one plays an important role in the greater whole of humankind. A love match with someone from of a different astrological element can be challenging, but also a beautiful opportunity to evolve. After all, differences push you both to grow and step outside of your own experience.

divider-graylove and compatibility by quality or triplicity
Taurus and Scorpio are both fixed signs

In astrology, the “qualities” or “triplicities” reveal the role you play in a relationship or collaboration. Are you a starter, a doer or a finisher? Do you like to take charge and have a plan, or do you prefer to go with the flow? As fixed signs, you are guardians of your “turf.” You like to plant a flag and set up your base, building an empire from there. If the two of you share an agenda, you can be an indomitable duo. Hello, power couple! But if you’re fighting for different causes, things can get ugly fast. You’ll both dig in your heels and stubbornly defend your territory. When you turn on each other, it can be an endless war, with blame and judgment, defending your point of view just to protect your ego. Your best bet is to channel this urge into creating a shared legacy—running a business together, starting a family, hosting all the holidays. Since fixed signs have a traditional side, you might both enjoy having everyone gather at your stately home for summer barbecues or New Year’s Eve parties. Just be careful not to get SO set in your ways that you insist on doing the same things year in and year out. Fixed signs can be allergic to change, so as a duo, you’ll need to actively invite new experiences into your world to prevent from getting stagnant.

divider-graylove and compatibility by polarity

Taurus and Scorpio are both yin, or feminine signs

In astrology, every sign has a “polarity”: you’re either yin (feminine) or yang (masculine). You are  both yin signs: receptive, sensitive and intuitive. When all is good, you are deeply simpatico, nurturing one another and sharing romantic, thoughtful gestures. The downside? Your fluctuating moods may collide, causing dramatic fights that can escalate into an unnecessary cold war. You can also get SO tuned into each other’s emotions that your bond turns codependent. While it’s lovely to build a cozy cocoon, make sure you don’t get stuck in that bubble and stunt each other’s personal growth.

divider-graylove and compatibility: your aspects

Taurus and Scorpio are opposite (six signs apart)

In astrology love matches, we also measure compatibility by the aspect, or distance, between the two signs. Your signs are opposite, or six signs apart. Your opposite sign lives directly across the zodiac wheel from you. However, you’ve got more in common than the name suggests. This sign can be highly compatible, even a soul twin match. You each have a distinct role, but you’re a tag team, too. With an opposite sign, you’re challenged to grow as a person and take responsibility for your part of the relationship. It’s like taking a big step back to get a clear perspective of your life. We tend to view things from a close-up, missing the whole picture by hyper-focusing on a detail or two. With an opposite sign, your life appears in full relief, like a finished painting. Suddenly, it all makes sense. This can be a little uncomfortable, but if you’ve manifested an opposite sign partnership, it means you’re ready to grow up.
