I think that most astrologers would agree that Leo and Taurus represent one of the most complicated and challenging couples of the zodiac.
The thing is that we can’t say that they aren’t compatible at all but, for some reason, it’s so very difficult for them to find common ground.
My intention wasn’t to shatter all your hopes right at the beginning of this article, but I really need to emphasize and warn you that you’ll need to put a huge effort into making your relationship work.
There are so many differences you’ll need to embrace or overcome. There are many ups and downs you’ll have to deal with and overcome together…
On the flip side, there are some things that can connect you for life. You’re both very ambitious and hard-working, and you aren’t planning to stop until you reach all of your goals and dreams.
You both seek a steady commitment, and loyalty is your most important quality. You’re both in love with stability, and once you find a person who can ensure it for you, you fall strongly and deeply in love with them.
It wouldn’t be fair to reveal it all to you here in the introduction part and leave you without any reason to keep reading below, right?
So, keep scrolling down for a full compatibility report about the, let’s say, perplexing relationship between the fiery Leo and the earthy Taurus.
Leo And Taurus Compatibility In Love
So, are Leo and Taurus compatible? I don’t want to dwell on it anymore, UNFORTUNATELY, the stars won’t quite align when it comes to the Taurus-Leo relationship. However, this doesn’t mean that they will be totally against them.
They will just try to make them work a bit harder to make their relationship work.
Taurus is an earth sign. People born under this sun sign are grounded, stable, and they always tend to approach life steadily.
While, on the other hand, people born under the fire sign of Leo are outgoing attention seekers who enjoy being in control of everything.
For Taurus, their partner always comes first. If their needs clash in any way, they will always try to fulfill their partner’s and leave their own ones aside.
That’s not the deal with Leo. They always put themselves first, and it’s very hard for them to leave that place for someone else.
This love match needs to work on making balance in their relationship. If the earthy Taurus tries to change the fiery energy of their Leo partner, they’ll only distance them away.
And, if the attention-lover Leo tries to change the shy nature of Taurus, they’ll only scare them away.
When it comes to Taurus-Leo compatibility in bed, that part should be perfect. Taurus is sensual and Leo is passionate. Once they decide to take that step in their relationship, they won’t want to get out of bed like ever again.
Leo Man And Taurus Woman Love Compatibility
The first thing I need to say is that this relationship is a lot more promising than the one between the Taurus man and the Leo woman.
This couple actually has pretty good chances to succeed in building and maintaining a healthy relationship. Of course, a lot of time and patience will be needed from both sides.
Only their stubbornness and inability to compromise can get in the way of their happiness.
Both of them long for security and stability in life. They want to find someone who’ll be able to commit only to them and stay loyal no matter what.
Because of those common values, they’ll click as soon as they meet, and as they keep getting to know each other, their connection will only grow stronger and deeper.
They are one of the rare fire-earth couples that actually get along pretty well.
After all, just as the lion is the king of the jungle, so is Leo the king of the zodiac. And, she always has to stand by his side and be his proud queen.
Taurus Man And Leo Woman Love Compatibility
This will be, let’s say, a bit more of a challenging relationship. However, challenging doesn’t mean that it’s impossible.
The fiery Leo woman will want to be the dominant one in this relationship, which will greatly bother the Taurus man. He simply won’t be able to accept it.
Just to be clear, he isn’t one of those dominating alpha males, but he simply wants a healthy, well-balanced relationship.
This couple will really need to practice and cultivate tolerance. It’s the only thing that can help them maintain a healthy relationship.
The Taurus man is stubborn and strong-willed, and the Leo woman is full of pride, which means they’re pretty bad when it comes to confronting and disagreeing about something.
It’s difficult for both of them to accept and admit that they’ve made a mistake, and it’s even harder for them to apologize.
Both signs long for admiration and attention, and this is the part where they’re most compatible with each other. They’ll both try to show a lot of affection, love, and devotion to the other side.
Another field they will get along in pretty well is their intimate life. Both are passionate and sensual, and I’m sure that the spark will never leave their bedroom.
Leo And Taurus Friendship Compatibility
What do you think? Do Leo and Taurus get along in friendship? We already saw that they aren’t quite compatible when it comes to love and relationships, but does this mean they’re incompatible in friendship, too?
It doesn’t. Of course, much better friends for Leos would be Aries, Sagittariuses, Libras, or Geminis, and Cancer, Pisces, and Capricorns would be much better choices for Tauruses.
However, Leos and Tauruses can build a pretty stable friendship that may last a lifetime.
Both are fixed signs, which is their biggest similarity. They only need to work on their communication skills and try to gain each other’s trust.
Also, they need to be a lot more empathetic and try to understand and accept their needs, values, and perspectives.
Leo Vs Taurus (Similarities And Differences)
This is the challenging part of the Leo-Taurus relationship… They have many, many similar traits, but their differences definitely prevail.
In some cases, opposites do attract, but I’m afraid that this is not the case when it comes to this couple. Truth be told, there are so many differences between them that it’s almost impossible to make this relationship work.
ALMOST. Remember this ‘almost’ because it’s the most important part of the sentence above.
Let’s talk about their differences first. The thing is that these two zodiac signs are associated with different elements, and I think this is where all of their differences begin.
Leos are a fixed, fire sign. That makes them fiery, passionate, creative, spontaneous, independent, and energetic.
They’re also ruled by the sun, which means they like to be in the center of attention and that they always shine and radiate positive energy.
On the other hand, Tauruses are an earth sign. They’re in stark contrast with Leos because they’re grounded, calculative, patient, dependent, jealous, and apathetic.
They’re a Venus-ruled zodiac sign, which makes them too sensitive and a bit shy.
You see… Leos thrive in self-confidence, and they enjoy always being in the spotlight. Contrary to them, Tauruses don’t like that, and they always choose to be somewhere aside and away from all that spotlight.
People born under the sign of Leo are pretty outgoing, and they always like to meet new people and make new friendships.
Tauruses are totally against this, and they prefer to stick to a smaller circle of friends; the trustworthy people they’ve known for their entire life.
If they find a way to accept each other’s differences and make a balance between them, they’ll be able to build a relationship that most people will envy.
When it comes to their similar traits, stubbornness is definitely on the top of that list.
Tauruses are stubborn as bulls and Leos aren’t quite far from that. It’ll be hard for them to accept and admit their mistakes and apologize for their wrongdoings.
Luxury and material things are a field of life where these sun signs are definitely compatible. They’re simply pleasure-seeking signs who are used to the finer things in life.
Also, another trait they have in common is ambition. They’re hard-working, productive, and goal-oriented. If they succeed in maintaining their relationship, they’ll do amazing things together and build a huge empire.
9 Tips To Make Your Relationship Work And Last A Lifetime
Just because this is a very complicated and challenging match doesn’t mean that it is impossible for them to build and maintain a successful, long-lasting relationship.
It just means that you’ll have to try hard to make it happen. The truth is that your relationship will be full of peaks and valleys and, if you truly love each other, you’ll have to be ready to climb and stay committed to climbing.
‘Too stubborn to forget, too proud to apologize’―This is your relationship killer
Together with Aquarius, Leo and Taurus are known as the most stubborn sun signs. They don’t like to be told what to do, and once they put their mind to something, there is no person that can prevent them from doing it.
Both of these signs have an uncompromising nature, and that’s why when the first conflict arises, it’ll shatter their relationship.
The thing is that both Leo and Taurus need to put their pride aside because there is no such thing as pride in love.
If you have made a mistake, just admit it and offer your sincere apology to your partner. Practice saying those three little words, ‘I’M SORRY’, because in your case, they’re more important than saying ‘I love you’.
Overcome your differences
You need to understand this; even those couples who share great compatibility have differences. But, the thing is that they choose to embrace those differences rather than allow them to divide or separate them.
Believe in the good old saying, “Opposites attract”, and let your differences become the reason for your strong bond.
The power of the middle ground
Making compromises… I can’t understand it… I swear this is the easiest thing in the world, but it’s the thing that is missing in most relationships nowadays.
The world would be a much better place if only all people would be like Virgos and Cancers when it comes to compromises.
The truth is that there is no healthy relationship without compromises. And, if you want to build a lasting relationship, you both need to be ready to compromise on some things.
You need to find that balance that will keep your relationship healthy.
Turn judgment into understanding
No matter what your partner says or does, don’t judge. If they do something bad, warn them about it and explain why it’s bothering you that much.
You can’t expect understanding from the other side if you aren’t willing to offer some yourself. The easiest thing is to slap a judgment on someone; trying to understand what made them do what they did is the difficult part.
Your partner will never understand what they did wrong if you just simply judge them without offering any reasonable explanation. But, if you talk with them about it, you’ll make them think about it and they probably won’t do it ever again.
Trade your expectations for appreciation
You both need to be less demanding, less expecting, and more appreciative of your partner. Don’t just focus on the bad things or those things that are missing in your relationship; be thankful for all the good parts of it.
Unrealistic and high expectations can only lead you to disappointment. Those disappointments will eventually make you doubt your partner and your relationship, which will end up in a breakup.
Maintain a strong sense of self in the relationship
This is the most common problem when it comes to this love match. One of them (or even sometimes both of them) tends to lose themself when they’re dating for a longer time.
It’s probably because this couple often chooses to avoid conflicts.
Both Leo and Taurus are very stubborn, they’re both very difficult on compromising and apologizing, and they’re aware that a simple fight over something stupid could be destructive to their relationship.
Relationships can’t grow without healthy communication
This is closely related to the previous paragraph. So, we already said that Leo and Taurus choose not to express their honest feelings and talk about things that are bothering them just to avoid conflicts.
They think that avoiding fights is how they’ll keep their relationship, but it’ll actually do the opposite. They can bottle up those things inside for a while, but sooner or later, it’ll all come to the surface and that’s when the real problems will arise.
“With Taurus and Leo, communication is key. If both partners are open and honest with each other in expressing their feelings and their needs, it’ll minimize conflict and reduce jealousy.” – says the famous astrologer and Tarot card reader, Molly Hall.
A tip for Taurus: Leave your jealousy at the door
Along with Scorpio and Cancer, Taurus is known as one of the most jealous and possessive zodiac signs. That’s why it’s hard for them to maintain a relationship in general.
Also, that’s why this love match has few chances of succeeding. Leo is free-spirited and social. They like to be surrounded by people all the time, and this is something that will really bother their Taurus partner.
However, Taurus needs to know that their partner is one of the most loyal and devoted signs in the entire zodiac, and that they would never do something that might hurt them.
If they don’t take control of their jealousy, their possessiveness will eventually take full control of their relationship and damage it in the worst possible way.
A tip for Leo: Be more considering of your partner’s feelings
This goes only for Leo; your partner is a human being, which means they’ve feelings, too. If you keep neglecting your partner’s feelings, they will leave you sooner or later.
You see… You’re actually pretty similar to Taurus here. You both want to be heard. You both want your feelings to be validated.
That’s why it shouldn’t be difficult for you to understand the needs of your Taurus partner because you have pretty much the same ones.
So, you have to listen to your partner more. If they say or if you notice that something is bothering them, talk to them about it.
Show understanding and empathy for their feelings and you’ll see how it’ll make your relationship a whole lot better and stronger.
The Bottom Line
The pairing of Leo and Taurus can be pretty complicated, for most astrologers, even impossible. However, I believe in the power of love, and I think that this love match is able to beat all the odds.
Okay, the stars don’t quite align in your case and fate definitely didn’t make you soulmates, but you can go against all of it
IF you want to keep your love and make your relationship work.
The zodiac compatibility of Leo and Taurus teaches us that at the end of the day, one thing is for sure; love is the most powerful force in the world. It is the force that can overcome all obstacles and win all battles.
If you truly love each other, nothing else is important… Not your compatibility, not your differences… Absolutely nothing else but your love.
