Taurus - Gemini Love Compatibility


Taurus and Gemini are the second and third signs of the zodiac calendar. However in terms of personality traits, the two signs seem to be worlds apart. The Taurus bearing the symbol of the Bull stands for solidity, strength and determination while the Gemini symbolized by the Twins is associated with flexibility and duality. The fact that Taurus is a fixed sign while Gemini is a mutable sign further strengthens these differences. Then again Taurus is an earth sign which makes it grounded, practical and motivated by material goals. The Gemini on the other hand is an air sign which is perhaps responsible for its free-spiritedness and restlessness.

In the light of the above personality differences, love compatibility between a Taurus and Gemini appears to be a tough proposition. Perhaps the greatest obstacle to their romantic compatibility is posed by the Bull’s preference for long-term committed relationship while it is practically impossible for a Gemini to be tied down. The Twins had got some bad press as being fickle and prone to cheating on their partners. It is simply that their hugely inquisitive minds need external stimuli in order to feel alive and this is best provided by meeting new people, communicating with them and trying out new experiences. This sometimes does take the form of brief flings but it is not true that Geminis are entirely incapable of serious relationships. They simply need to be reassured of their personal freedom to be able to commit themselves in a relationship.


Unfortunately this is often difficult for a Taurus to understand who being staunchly loyal themselves expect the same degree of commitment from their partners and when this is not willingly given, can often turn out to be jealous and possessive.

The only way a Taurus and Gemini can live in romantic harmony is to imbibe a little of the other’s positive qualities. If the Bull learns to be less serious and more open to change, he/she might find that being in love also means having fun. A Gemini on the other hand can absorb the values of permanence and consistency in a relationship with a Taurus partner and realize that commitment is not such a bad thing after all.

Taurus Man and Gemini Woman

The initial spark between the Taurus man and Gemini woman is likely to be a clear case of “opposites attract”. The quicksilver, effervescent and sparking sociability of a female Gemini will more often than not floor the stolid and practical male Taurus. Despite his natural reserve, she will quickly help him to open up with considerable conversational skills and once she gets going he will be gratified to find that behind that fluid tongue lies a mind brimming with curiosity and brilliant ideas.

Sexual intimacy might not result immediately primarily because of the Bull’s cautious nature which likes to be sure about something before getting himself to commit to it. However when it does happen, the Taurus lover is likely to surprise his Gemini girlfriend by the depth of his passions. This is because the Bull as an earth sign is grounded in his senses which make him a highly sensual lover. His Gemini partner on the other hand will bring a light-heartedness and variety to the experience which will make it fully satisfying.

However the challenge in this relationship will be to keep the spark glowing once the initial flames of passion have subsided. The male Taurus might not resent the large social circle his Gemini girlfriend as much as the fact that she needs to go out regularly to meet her friends and admirers. A Taurus man likes nothing better than to relax in his own home, surrounded by material comforts and probably with a hot meal awaiting him. His Gemini partner on the other hand thrives on social interactions, verbal exchange and a continuous change in scene. This basic difference might prove to a hurdle in a Taurus man-Gemini woman match in the long run.

Taurus Woman and Gemini Man

Despite the fact that the Taurus woman is slow to open up to strangers, she might find herself giving in to the charms of a Gemini’s sparkling conversation. The female Bull might not have an imagination to give wings to her personality, but she has sense enough to recognize intellectual brilliance where she sees it. And the male Gemini will appeal to her precisely because of his quick mind and intelligent curiosity more than his verbal dexterity and social charm.

Lovemaking between the two might start off as a passionate experience, primarily because of the female Bull’s strongly sensual nature and the male Twin’s fertile imagination. However after a time, the Gemini partner might get bored of the same routine while his Taurus girlfriend might be suspect of his constant need for novelty. Herein lies the fundamental challenge to a Taurus woman-Gemini man pairing. The latter needs a constant change of scene and action to give expression to his multi-faceted personality. To a Taurus woman this might smack of restlessness and worse an inability to commit himself to the relationship. And few things are as contrary to the Taurus personality, motivated as they are in their own lives by consistency and loyalty. Yet another aspect of the Gemini man that is likely to irk the Taurus woman is his inability to take responsibility of a situation and then fulfill it. She might look forward to her partner’s promise of taking her on a moonlit boat ride or out shopping only to find out at the last moment that he is taking her to a game because he has got front row tickets. This flexibility which a Gemini prides himself on usually does not go down well with Taurus partners who might view it as evidence that he will not be able to keep promises when it matters.

However this is not to mean that a love match between a Taurus and Gemini has no chance of success. Far from it, in fact. The easy adaptability of the Gemini which seems so incompatible to the Taurus determined nature can at times be a boon in the relationship; since Taurus is known for their stubbornness, the flexibility of a Gemini partner can do wonders to ease a particularly sticky situation. the key word to their dynamics of their personal relationship will have to be adjustment. Once the two make allowances for each other’s personality traits, the relationship will benefit from the energy and flexibility of the Gemini as well as the solidity and responsibility of the Taurus.
