Analysis of the Relationship
Characteristics of Taurus
Taurus has a lot of ego as the center of the life-giving sign. After Aries makes its prestigious roundabout to the world to bring in energy after the cold winter, Aries stops showing off as the first child of the real year, and Taurus gets its chance. Taurus wants to prove itself just as strong as Aries, but still as its own unique soul. Taurus has second-child syndrome.
Taurus is the fixed earth sign, and as the first fixed sign of the zodiac, it has an extra dosage of being stubborn. Taurus isn't always sensitive to other people's plans and how to be malleable with those plans. They like things done the way they see them. Sometimes, they have a mentality of "my way or the highway." This is why they are the bull. They will charge after what they want; they can be headstrong without much consideration.
There are many soft-hearted Taurus characters in this world who like the garden of life and tending to it to make the flowers keep growing, keep spinning, and cultivating what life needs. Earth signs are more manager-like signs. They want to provide, they want to take care of tasks, and they are pretty good at this.
Characteristics of Gemini
Gemini is the end of spring, and, in a way, it didn't work for the fruits it automatically gets. It takes things as they are. Gemini is one of the most spacious, free, and accepting signs of the zodiac—depending on their mood, because Gemini is Jekyll and Hyde. It is symbolized by the twins: a sign of duality.
Gemini has flowers already, so it doesn't have the built-in complexes Aries and Taurus have to make sure life happens. By the time Gemini arrives, life already is. This might be why Gemini is more philosophical than a ego-strutting ninja. Gemini are intelligent, curious, fluctuating, and full of variety. This will baffle Taurus at times because Taurus is more opinionated and searching for something more exact. Gemini would prefer to go with or create a flow or a structure. Gemini can get their hands into two different worlds at once and still be comfortable with those parallel and contradicting lenses.
The Two Signs Together
In a healthy Taurus and Gemini relationship, this combination will see each other as a major team. They have two strong mental focuses and, combined together, they can be incredibly united. They could do whatever they want. Bring about world peace? Sure! Bring about the world's end? Sure! They have the skills to link up to each other, without feeling as though they are losing themselves.
Earth + Air
They understand the differences between them and see those differences as defined. Perhaps that's the often-overlooked quality of an earth and air sign pairing. Water tends to want to merge entirely. Fire wants to consume entirely. Water is theoretically supposed to be a good match for earth; fire is supposed to be a good match for air.
The only thing is, mixing a yin-and-yang relationship can allow two people to cover more ground. When you have relationships that are of the same element or are both yin or are both yang, it can cover the same ground and end up causing certain tasks to never be accomplished. This is problematic because it can come with some heavy consequences down the line.
Consider this: Whatever are your daily habits, where your feet point, and what things you accept into your life all play into the fate you have at the end of the road. If you have two people functioning the same way, you are essentially bringing in the same demons and the same angels—rather than correcting the demons you have with their angels.
This is why yin-and-yang relationships, like Taurus and Gemini, can really be a positive. You relieve some of your stress rather than amplify it. You cover certain ground you didn't know existed; you end up with a full experience.
Tips to Make the Relationship Work

- Gemini should not play games with Taurus' temper. Gemini is skilled at keeping ease and calm. This helps the relationship with Taurus. Rocking the boat with a Taurus can end in a temper tantrum. Gemini has some edge in this arena however because they can use unorthodox methods to derail conversation into their favor. They also can use a calm demeanor to soften heated arguments.
- Plans are good for you. Follow through with them. Gemini does well with impulse; it is how they operate. Taurus can make good plans. Know that you have different lenses.
- Split up the responsibilities based on who prefers what. You should have some ease with this in being such different elemental signs. Taurus likes to manage their surroundings; Gemini likes to lead in unorthodox ways.
- Don't get into battles of who is more smart. This could lead into a crazy downward spiral. Taurus has blunt force to their intelligence; Gemini has a never ending stack of wild cards.
- Neither of you can manipulate the other. Work to balance out your strengths and compromise.
- Taurus -- don't get so independent that you don't communicate properly to Gemini. Neither of you should leave each other in the dark.
- Remember to focus on positive energy. The best couples in the world focus on kindness and generosity.
- Gemini, be more comfortable with your body. Communicate with it. Give more hugs and kisses. It is easy as an air sign to forget to do this when you are so much in your head.
Balancing the Relationship
Keep in mind, Taurus is fixed, dependable, and hard working. They want things to get done. A home environment with lots of unfinished projects can stress them out. Gemini is more curious, open to change, and likes multiplicity. You'll have to work to balance out these factors so as not to annoy each other. It may at times feel like a battle between the closed and the open minded. Accept each other for your differences and play your cards to benefit each other. You'll attract to each other naturally because the other person has what you lack.
Taurus will want some ground, and Gemini is all about bouncing around for energy and freedom. Try letting one person lead and show their world at a time, and letting go of any preconceived notions. Together you can both teach each other more about the world and create a more refined path. Both of you will bring something different to the bedroom. Gemini likes to flirt as a precursor and Taurus is more sensual as an earth sign.
Playing at Different Speeds, Blend It Together
Taurus offers a lot more common sense, stability, and direction to the relationship. Taurus wants to be in the world and pragmatic. It takes care of the garden, while Gemini lives in the garden. Taurus feels great pride in being the part of the year where all the flowers and crops are in bloom, the spring rains, the flirty romance of that time. Gemini is infatuated with life having an almost stoned-like personality. Gemini will have to accept that Taurus doesn't want to talk all the time. Gemini loves to talk for the sake of talking and going with life and what it has to offer, and this could annoy Taurus from time to time when they constantly see tasks needing to be accomplished. Gemini sometimes doesn't realize how much effort is put into making the world happen before it arrives. Sometimes Taurus doesn't realize we need to play in the stage of life and not just cultivate a stage. As consecutive signs, they can bridge these differences together. They won't feel such great dissonance as in other relationships.
Gemini has a talkative, abstract, extreme intelligence that flies fast. Gemini is ready to go and do, and Taurus handles a different kind of density in life. Taurus sees the practical and can see what gears are not working in life. Taurus may find Gemini to be too frenetic at times. This relationship is all about acceptance and knowing people go at different speeds.
