Taurus and Cancer Compatibility

In today’s article, we are going to present the compatibility between Taurus and Cancer, two very well attuned signs, and with a great affinity for each other. 

Taurus rules over the 2nd house, which stands for material values, movable property, food and dietary styles, finances, savings, and material cravings. Taurus is ruled over by Venus, the planet of love and beauty but also luxury. Its temperament is melancholic, its quality is fixed, and its element is Earth. 

Cancer is a 4th Zodiac sign, its natural house is the 4th house of family, home, traditional values, family business, childhood, grandmother’s DNA, left eye, and resting place. Its ruler is the Moon (one of the two Luminaries of the Zodiac), its temperament is phlegmatic (cold and moist), its quality is cardinal and its element is Water. 

The first thing we have to mention is that Venus and Moon are agnate planets and when they find themselves in a complementary aspect (trine, conjunction or sextile) they work extremely well together, bestow talents and gifts of beauty and splendor, and attract natives to each other in a synastry. 

Not to mention that Water nourishes the Earth, and thus, once again we have a complementary statistic between these two signs. They also have very similar values and goals in life.

Taurus and Cancer friendship compatibility

These two signs can exhibit a very profound, close and loyal bond when it comes to friendship compatibility. Cancers are natural psychologists, they are born listeners and as a cardinal Water sign they absorb other people’s emotions and feel intuitively; they can locate what ails other people (spiritually) and aid them in recovering from that. 

Taurus are naturally a very relaxed and reliable sign, they can offer emotional security and loyalty to Cancers, and Cancers can help them open up about their emotions and begin the healing process from the inside. 

They love to cook together, they love staying safe and cozy at home, but they also love adventuring in nature and being surrounded by the elements. They know how to give each other perfect gifts, they remember the small things and dates, and they are very caring and protective of each other. 

This is a very good combination of signs, modalities, and elements, they nourish and support each other. This is a friendship without bumps and unpleasant surprises. These signs deeply love and care for each other and can nurture their bond their entire lives.

Taurus and Cancer relationship compatibility for marriage

Since they are the material for best friends, it’s only natural that they would be great marriage material, as well. 

These two signs have a lot of respect and admiration for each other. Both of these signs value money and financial security, both of them know how to save money and they have a knack for investing, too. 

They both love and admire nature, they love to spend time holed up in a cozy cabin near a lake, they love to garden and plants grow big in their proximity. They love to decorate their home and they take such good care of the small details and pleasantries. 

If they opened up an Air BnB, or an inn, or a cozy hotel, their business would boom since they’re so naturally good and gifted at it. They are also a perfect couple to start their own family business and pass it down to their children and grandchildren as their legacy. 

They have a lot of love and understanding for each other, Cancer provides emotional and intuitive insight to Taurus, and Taurus provides material and emotional security to Cancer. 

Taurus and Cancer score high on this compatibility, as they have a lot to offer and learn from each other.

When it comes to sex compatibility, here too, they score great scores and have a lot to share with each other.

Both Venus and Moon are planets that love to ravel in their emotions and explore them undauntedly and openly. Thus, both Taurus and Cancer love to have sex with each other as they complement their inner and emotional needs for intimacy and sharing through physical touch. 

Cancers are fluid when it comes to sex, they really shine in the sex department as they channel their emotions through passion and intimacy; similar goes for Taurus, they might be very relaxed and controlled in waking life, but when it comes to erotic creativity – they really know how to let go and let it all hang. 

These two can have an amazing night (and morning, afternoons, and evening) together; since their trust and emotional intimacy are already built up, they know how to be themselves with each other, and there are no fears to hold them back from their passionate expression of love through physical intimacy. 

They love each other and they love to be with each other, this is why they work so very well together. The only problem might arise when Cancer desires to lead (cardinal sign) and Taurus isn’t prepared to let go entirely of the reigns (fixed sign), so they clash, but that can be smoothed out pretty quickly and easily as they complement each other so well.

Taurus and Cancer Emotional Compatibility

When it comes to emotional compatibility – another great score for these two! Cancers are very, very emotional, they sometimes manage to control, but it controls them more often than not. 

Taureans are very steadfast and loyal in their emotions, but their temper doesn’t escape them as often as it happens with Cancers. Cancer is ruled by the Moon, the moodiest and most changeable celestial body in our solar system. 

This is why Taurus can be solid rock and a secure anchor for Cancer’s emotions, and Cancer can show safety in feeling and letting go once in a while to a stern Taurus. These two easily build emotional trust and security between each other and this is why they work so great together. 

Taurus has the capacity to absorb and take on most of Cancer’s emotions and feelings, even in their werewolf stage, and Cancer has the power and wisdom to open up Taurus and teach them about the flow of emotions. 

This truly is one of the rare great and compatible pairings, and they have a lot of beautiful moments and deep connections to share. They can have an amazing life together in any setting thanks to the emotional compatibility and safety they feel with each other and when they are together. 

It’s a good idea for Taurus to leave the reigns to Cancer from time to time, and a good idea for Cancer to let Taurus keep the status quo (stability) most of the time.
