Why Taurus and Aquarius Click Romantically
How Spring and Winter Connect
Taurus and Aquarius are fixed signs—Taurus, the bull, is an earth sign, and Aquarius, the water bearer, is an air sign.
I believe that any two signs can make a match—it's simply a matter of understanding how they work together. There are instances of both successful marriage and divorce in every pair. It doesn't help anyone to say only certain pairs work—in reality, anything is possible.
Fixed signs are known for making anything go their way. They are stubborn. They are at the centers of their seasons. Taurus season is in the center of spring, whereas Aquarius season is in the center of winter. This position shapes how they view the world. Taurus is incredibly strong-willed: they are all about manifesting their finances, a healthy home, and material goods. Aquarius, on the other hand, is all about the truth, genuineness, and originality. Like all earth signs, Taurus can make for a strong provider for Aquarius.
Taurus and Aquarius Have a Lot to Learn From One Another
An Aquarius lives in a world of thoughts and creativity and sometimes neglects more tangible things before them, like cleaning, paying bills, watching their physical health. Taurus-types are great stewards of physical reality; Aquarius-types are great stewards of the creative. A Taurus will help keep an Aquarius balanced, which is one of their greatest goals. Aquarius can pull a Taurus out of their shell and get them to be more spontaneous, letting them see the world in a whole new way.
An Aquarius is about authenticity—they see what is fake, and they will not stand for it. Taurus is about creating life, rejuvenation, and revealing how love creates more.
Taurus is more reserved than Aquarius, which is amazing considering it is the center of spring. Taurus will need to be careful with its temper. Aquariuses are sensitive and can be hurt by too much negativity. Taurus and Aquarius get along when it comes to sarcasm, dry-humor, and staying light-hearted.
Taurus will be blow away when they see the hidden, emotional side of Aquarius. Taurus needs to be tender toward Aquarius in order for this to come out naturally, in a healthy way. Taurus often fears emotions and will put up walls to avoid them. I think Taurus is worried that emotions—which are related to water—will then lead to action, and Taurus fears expanding beyond its control. Taurus needs to overcome this.
What These Signs Need in a Relationship
Taurus will need to be willing to stretch itself and its resources—this is easier said than done. Aquarius needs someone who is open-minded, tender, sensitive, and intentional. If Taurus holds back from allowing emotion to come into play, it will lose Aquarius. Physical support isn't enough for the Aquarius, so Taurus will need to try harder to keep the romance alive. Taurus, you must apply yourself. This is totally within your range.
What Taurus and Aquarius Can Offer Each Other
Taurus won't keep a tight leash on Aquarius to the degree other zodiacs will. Water signs can entrap Aquarius, Virgo can entrap Aquarius, but Taurus is afraid of taking things too far—they will then see themselves as a manipulator.
Taurus hates the idea of manipulation; it wants things to go their course naturally. This may be because Taurus is opposite of the Scorpio, who is the master of manipulation. (Though, Scorpio is not manipulative out of spite or evil intent, but because it's the magician.) Taurus doesn't jive with that. Taurus is all about spring, about release, rejuvenation, liberation, new colors, health, and prosperity. Forcing things to go a certain way makes a Taurus feel very, very weird. It isn't its nature.
This can be good for the Aquarius, who craves independence. Aquarius does not do well when trapped. It absorbs emotions, and waits until it can let them overflow—as if ready for spring. Don't neglect the fact that Aquarius is symbolized by the water bearer. A lot of people do, and this moves too far away from their complex—and beautiful—emotional nature.
Taurus Must Make an Effort to Attract Aquarius
Aquarius needs help creating the spark in this relationship. Taurus offers a great deal for Aquarius; its dead-center position in the spring gives it a lot to provide Aquarius with—rain, snow, flowers, wind, sunshine, dark days, pollen. Taurus is highly interesting, but it often doesn't want to open itself up to the variety it naturally has.
Spring is a symbol of the physical manifestations of provisions the world has to offer to the species living here. Taurus needs to offer that beauty to Aquarius in order to attract them. How in the world can a Taurus be boring when they have this power? Because they'll forget it, or because they won't believe it is important in the grand scheme of life. A paradox indeed.
Taurus has a beautiful gift—it can make the world green, fruitful, and blessed, if not miraculous. Aquarius will be attracted to this because it houses the cold and the snow. Winter represents both the early stages of life and the later stages—death, aging, and illness. Of course, that can be threatening to Taurus, but it needs to accept this part of the cycle that comes before it. Aquarius is odd in this way because they are both old souls and childlike. They think forward into the future, fueled by their visions of the past. You can't have spring without the vision of the Aquarius—which includes death, renewal, and the passage of time.
Aquarius Can Bring Taurus Out of Its Shell
Are we starting to see how beautiful the two energies are here? Taurus simply needs to come out of its shell. Aquarius is a gift that can enlighten it, bring out that spring energy, and allow them to go much further than they originally thought. A Taurus can be threatened by an Aquarius if a Taurus isn't willing to see itself. An Aquarius desires for Taurus to show off its creative energy.
If Taurus shows this side of itself, Aquarius will be more attracted to it than to Scorpio—who they often get hung up on. Why does the Taurus have this potential? Because ultimately, spring overpowers autumn. Life has greater value than death. But Taurus often buries its head—it needs to learn that it's not just a seed to be planted in spring. It is already blooming when it gets to spring.
There's a certain youthful energy the first few zodiacs receive because they are connected to this spring energy. This can make the early zodiacs somewhat arrogant, leader-like, and brazen. This is where it is important to listen to Aquarius' older soul so that you, Taurus, can harness your energy and make an impact, learning how to spread it without fear. Yes, the Taurus realizes that it can't make every space on this planet green—it fears planting its flowers in places where they cannot grow. However, Aquarius has the eyes to see where the Taurus is missing important chances.
Taurus Helps Aquarius Stay Grounded
Aquarius and Taurus have the capacity to create a relationship with good vibes and energy. Aquarius helps breathe life into Taurus, and Taurus helps Aquarius find ground. In nature, these two already have a cause and effect relationship, meaning that it is incredibly natural for them to get together. It is Aquarius' nature that makes the flowers grow in Taurus. It is Taurus' nature that gives Aquarius' vision the chance to grow.
These two are meant to be, but if they argue against each other over their different methods, they can disconnect from each other. Their arguments are generally over minor misgivings that get blown out or proportion rather than the big picture of how your relationship works. Those misgivings can be quite painful. They need to accept how they work together in order to fully get the spoils.
Taurus is naturally conservative while Aquarius is naturally progressive. It's that progressive energy that allows spring to follow. It's Taurus' conservative energy that allows Aquarius vision to find a place. Don't be threatened by how your partner works here. The more you can accept them, the more you'll understand them. This isn't always easy, especially with two powerfully stubborn people. The more you can see how you work together, the more you can tap into this to make your romance grow.
How the Seasons Come Into Play
It may help this pair to really understand how winter runs into spring. There is a direct cycle here. Consider how important are the aesthetics of the flowers, how careful and tender you must be with your garden to make them grow, and how protective you must be to make sure the plants grow well. Taurus makes a great parent because they have such a strong understanding of how to raise living things. Aquarius, as a visionary, has what makes the Taurus' reality even possible.
However, Aquarius season is not actually before Taurus. Aquarius is at the end of the cycle—it's the 11th house. Aquarius sees how Taurus' actions effect the following zodiacs and seasons. It doesn't just think about the flowers when they are living, but it also think about them when spring is over and they are ready to disintegrate. Their progressive nature helps them consider how the cycle can be even better the next time, and that isn't to threaten the Taurus but to make the Taurus stronger. You may have traditions you've followed to successfully make flowers, but Aquarius sees how that process can be made better to provide healthier fruit.
