Taurus and Libra Compatibility

These signs are from opposite seasons but are ruled by the same planet. Both Taurus and Libra are guided by Venus, the planet of love. They are not complete opposites, but they do have a lot of opposition. So while a Taurus-Libra relationship can thrive, it will take a little work to get to a place of understanding and harmony.

A Relationship Between Opposing Signs

Taurus is an earth sign, and Libra is an air sign. Taurus, though yin, tends to be a highly masculine, competitive, and present-minded sign. Libra, though yang, tends to lean toward femininity. Libra strives for fairness and balance and considers the past and present.

Taurus is the heart of spring, when the grass is green, the birds sing, and flowers are in bloom. Libra is the beginning of fall, when the leaves change colors, when the northern hemisphere starts to cool, and when the days start to shorten.

Each Sign Has What the Other Lacks

Where Taurus wants to compete, Libra wants to focus on equality. Where Libra struggles to make a decision, Taurus does it for the Libra. When Taurus has a hot temper, Libra can cool it.

Is Libra and Taurus a Good Match?

It can be, but these two can have a lot of communication problems and different goals. The main key is to apply empathy—try to be in the other person's shoes and see how they interpret the world.

Taurus can be blunt, and Libra can be sensitive, but Libra can also be thick-skinned. Libra will enjoy Taurus' humor, quick wit, and decisiveness. Libra will feel safe with a Taurus; they'll get to show off their earthy side, and they can connect by camping, hiking, and enjoying the world in a balanced way. Libra likes gardens because it feels like it is contributing to the world. Taurus will like that Libra is softer, more emotionally gushy, but still has brains. This is a fascinating blend to Taurus. They'll also feel like they've won a worthy prize.

Learning to Communicate

The two will need to work on communication problems. Sometimes, it is going to feel like they're living in two completely different worlds. You talk in different ways and have different goals.

Taurus, as an earth sign, loves to give by acts of service. Libra loves to give by affection, time, and compliments. Sometimes the two of you will be earnestly communicating with each other but not able to understand each other. Don't be afraid to seek out a counselor or a mediator to help you practice emotionally intelligent language.

Libra and Taurus at Home

Libra needs to accept that a clean space, sound finances, and traditions mean something to Taurus. And Taurus needs to understand and respect that Libra needs time to detox.

Libra is not a sign that always likes to be on the go. They like to spend time at home to recover from the world's pains. Libras get overwhelmed by the insanity of life. Fortunately, Taurus also likes the home life. Taurus wants to take care of the home; it wants its five senses satisfied, and it wants its partner to be happy and satisfied. Taurus, in a selfish way, can take it personally if their partner is not happy.

In order for a relationship between these signs to work, Taurus and Libra will need to understand each other's differences and find a way to balance them.

Practical Taurus vs. Abstract Libra

Taurus can be practical, and Libra can be abstract. Sometimes, the things Libra does really baffles Taurus. Both of them like nice things; they can be hard workers (Libra can also be prone to sloth-like behavior), and both want to experience pleasure—material and otherwise.

How to Deal With Anger

Libra may eventually blow up out of nowhere. They have a limit with Taurus brushing things off and undervaluing things that Libra likes. It is hard to tell when this will happen, because Libra values a lot of things. All the little gripes add up until they eventually pop over something with their partner.

Libra should be careful, because a Libra's temper isn't near as frightening as a Taurus' temper. Taurus will come at you with all their power as the bull. You can get pinned to a corner when Taurus is upset, and all you can do is take cover. Having both of you feeling on edge is going to suck. Try to be sensitive, slow down, and be considerate.

It can feel like a battle of the air vs. the earth: You have one considering the practical world, and one considering the spiritual world. Taurus has a much bigger ego compared to Libra, who is often selfless. Taurus has a lot of pride for being the center of spring—technically, the center of life. Taurus also has a chip on its shoulder and feels like it isn't good enough because it is the second child after Aries.

Achieving Peace and Harmony

Libra is neutral, thoughtful, and indecisive. It is good that this relationship pairs a softer, more peaceful person with a more competitive person. Taurus is often seen as a hyper-driven competitor. They may be ambitious, full of goals, full of hope, inspiration, and a desire to fight. Libra will want to offer harmony while Taurus wants to keep the rhythm going.

Libra will have better social manners and it can help pacify the Taurus and make them more charismatic. Taurus will appreciate the qualities Libra offers. A lot of signs enjoy relationships with Libras because of how harmonizing they are. Libra likes to explore the artistic, delving into a number of projects and making a lot of messes. Libra needs to keep in mind that a lot of mess can stress out a Taurus.

Both of these signs have traits that can drive the other crazy and potentially end a budding relationship. Here are a few classic Libra-Taurus pitfalls to watch out for.

Worst-Case Scenarios to Avoid

If Taurus becomes too much for Libra, the Libra may try to escape. Libra is sensitive, and when their partner is too much for them, it can cause them to have extreme anxiety and make fast, impulsive decisions without communicating super well. This can really confuse the Taurus, who doesn't understand why Libra would suddenly fold.

If Libra becomes too unattached, too unfocused, and too messy, Taurus may get overwhelmed and quit the relationship. Taurus needs some amount of seriousness from their Libra partner. Too much flightiness and aloofness don't bode well with Taurus, who desires to accomplish goals and make the world a better place. Taurus also has a certain amount of attachment to traditions or conservative outlooks.

Tips for the Relationship

  • Know that you are different. You have different desires, appreciations, and goals, but you can harmonize together and have a beautiful and pleasurable relationship.
  • Watch your tempers. Getting too angry and blowing up at your partner will make the situation worse. Focus on emotionally intelligent language. If Taurus blows up, you must confront it, Libra. Don't just sweep it under the rug. Stand your ground. If Libra blows up, talk to them logically.
  • Ditch the mind games. Taurus, don't play mind games with the Libra just to get a rise out of your partner. Increase your level of faith in people so you don't practice destructive behaviors.
  • Pump up the romance. Libras like declarations of love. They enjoy handwritten letters; they like handmade gifts, and they like having the authentic version of you. They are romantic-idealists.
  • Enjoy some deep conversations. Both of you have high intelligence, so you will enjoy a number of conversations and interests together.
  • Pamper and dote on each other. Libra is intelligent but can feel insecure. Taurus does well to pamper their Libra and dote on them. Libra also does well to pamper Taurus.
  • Share the load. You can split up household chores easily by your different interests and talents.
  • Embrace change. Know the relationship will evolve, change, and transition.
  • Don't be too pushy. Taurus needs to be careful about how much it pushes Libra. Taurus has a tendency as a rock to push the Libra frequently, and this can eventually make the Libra snap.
  • Accept Libra's messy balance. Accept that Libra can be messy and get their hands into all kinds of things and impulsive behaviors, while also offering balance.
  • Taurus—be sensitive. Think before you speak. Don't always be brash or cut things down. After a while, this hurts the Libra's feelings, and they will take it personally.

      I'm a Libra guy, age 18, and I have been dating a Taurus, also 18, for almost three months now. I've dated before, but no one has drawn me in the way he does. For the first month, our relationship was a total whirlwind. Things moved super fast. I met both of his parents, even though they're divorced, within 24 hours of meeting him and we were boyfriends within 12 hours of meeting. We have a lot of common artists and he makes me laugh and he's probably the most handsome guy I've ever seen. Normally I wouldn't say this so soon, but we really do love each other. He told me one week in at the end of a movie. It was so cute. He looked at me and went "I've wanted to tell you this the whole movie, but I made myself wait. Mars, I love you." I outright swooned. For the first month and three weeks, we were in a moderately long distance relationship of about a three and a half hour drive, but we made it work.

      We pamper each other and share interests and we love to share new knowledge with each other and have new experiences. Our relationship is great, the best I've ever been in actually, but we do struggle with communication. I get insecure and he is more introverted - needs a lot of space to himself at times and doesn't really text much - so there are times that I need to talk to him in order to get reassurance and he doesn't answer. I'm mentally all over the place and he's very focused, engaged in the moment and present but ignoring everything else, so we're really different. It's sometimes difficult to understand how he thinks, but I'm sure he also struggles to understand how I think. He's very calm and steadily hardworking, whereas I'm more sensitive and unstably hardworking. Like, yes, I am hardworking, but I have fits where I work furiously without cease and then I'll be really unmotivated for like a week.

      We're also both really busy, but since I've moved for college and now he only lives 45 minutes away, we've carved out one night of the week that we dedicate to each other and it's really great. Wednesday nights are what I most look forward to throughout my busy week. It's nice to be with someone who I feel safe around and trust, and even though we are very different, he's worth the work.

      I will start off by saying that this is the most accurate article I’ve read about the Taurus/Libra relationship. I am a Taurus woman 31 and have been with a Libra man 32 for four years now. It is not easy to be a Taurus in love with a Libra, and vice versa. We have had communication barriers, he has left me several times. I left him and there has been a lot of hurt in four years. Not ever physical so do not think that is at all ok. It has been a crazy roller coaster. I didn’t give him his space when he asked for it so therefore he took it. And all of his stuff to lol. Let me remind you multiple times. It wasn’t until a couple of months ago that our communication has been better than ever. I finally said enough is enough and I left. I decided I was done. Normally when I am done I don’t go back. But there is something about this man that nobody else has ever had over me. I LOVE him. While separated I slept with another man. I do not recommend this at all. I am not proud of what I did and I hate myself for it everyday. I am honest and he knew about it before we decided to reconcile. It is the hardest thing for him to deal with, which in turn is harder for me because some days he is not happy with me and he will tell me. So then I give him space to think to calm down. I have to reassure him everyday. We fight and argue but we know we love each other and we are willing to endure what it takes. And it takes a strong couple to be in a Taurus/ libra relationship just as the article said a Libra will get scared if the Taurus pushes too hard. He finally came out and told me all the times that he had left me was because he got scared. I wanted marriage and libras have a hard time with decisions he has constantly fought himself about marriage he said he wants to make sure he marries me for the right reasons and not just to be married. It wasn’t until I realized that I love him no matter what either as my husband or just my significant other we were together and that’s what mattered most and our relationship has been better than ever. You have to love and really be in love in order for this relationship to work you have to want to forgive, communicate, be humble and kind and really understanding to be in a Taurus libra relationship and in my opinion all of those things are the definition of love. So if your Libra/Taurus relationship makes it, you will know that it’s love and not lust. It can work you just have to want it to. Our song is actually Kane Brown- Work!! Hope this helps.

      I am a Taurus women dating a Libra guy for about two years.

      He was married for a while and separated from his wife a few years ago. Been separated from his wife and knowing that he found someone else, he still had no intentions of divorcing his wife until I decided to end my relationship with him. Years later now he decides to file for a divorce because i had to push him.

      As time goes by, i find out that he is extremely lazy, speaks one lie after another, uses a lie to cover up another lie forgetting that i know the truth. If we have to go out anywhere he has absolutely no style or class with him, if not he is always broke. When we chill at home about the only thing he can actually speak about is his work and always trying to compare his line of work with mine when we are in completely 2 different fields off work.

      Recently I've been pushing him away or shutting him out of my life as i just feel its getting a bit to much and i feel myself getting more and more irritated with him. When I try talking to him about what he is doing wrong, he immediately denies it and repeatedly says and I love you too, frustrating me even more.

      I am now at the stage, where i feel bad for pushing him to getting a divorce that I dont know how to make or break this relationship.

      Look for something new and let yourself go from this. Your thoughts are not clear, and he wants to move on without you. It will be okay. Love is somewhere else.

      Give yourself time before you decide whether this is something you want long term. Be honest about how you feel both to yourself and your partner.

      I'm a Libra man married to a female Taurus for 21 yrs. I'm not 100% sure of Astrology plays out but we are the Perfect Team. When one is down, the other takes over. It works both ways.

      I am teaching her (Taurus) to be more Emotionally Intelligent and it's working. I tend to be more vocal as I want her to know how I am feeling. I don't believe in keeping everything inside as she tends to do. She's working on it. It's bad for health.

      We can both be very stubborn once in a blue moon only a Taurus tends to outdo a Libra. She can stay angry/slilent for one week and I just want to apologize for her to make things right again.

      I don't do that anymore, I just give her, her space. After 21 yrs I can say I would do it all over again, regardless of what sign she is. She is my Twin Flame, The One for me in this life and beyond.

      I wouldn't have it any other way. I love my Taurus wife. LibraAngel from The Bay

      I am taurus. In love with a libra since 10 years. Who never gave me a real commitment. Am still waiting. Why? I dont know. My heart never accepts letting him go. Yes libras are very cool. And we taurus have a hot head compared to them. But they are very very manipulative. Their charm makes them win with a clean image everytime. Hate their indecisiveness seriously.

      I'm a Libra attempted relationships with 3 Taurus men....and honestly these things are true... In many aspects... Libra is more sensitive and often Taurus bluntness hurt us... Well Libras are as blunt but we have a tendency to choose our words well and sugar coat things... I always took all my splits with Taurus very hard as I seek stability and loyalty... Long term committment... I know Taurus does too...but it often takes em longer to decide on this than the libra... In my opinion although both wants marriage... Libra is more likely to jump the gun and feel anxious by Taurus patience to wait for the "perfect moment" Libra believe in making the moment perfect...as opposed to waiting for it...
