They love a solid home base, a strong relationship, nice possessions, good food: all the comforts of domestic life.
Theirs is often the ideal family that people of other Signs strive for, with strong ties between them and a relationship that is family-oriented rather than toward the outside world. Their only major problems arise when Taurus insists on having its own way and Cancer responds by sulking. Both of these celestial bodies vibrate with feminine energy. Cancer often keeps emotions bottled up and simmering inside, which can lead to occasional boil-overs. As the Moon controls the tides of the Earth, quietly affecting all life, so does Cancer, manipulating behind the scenes.
Cancer tends to be sentimental, and both partners prefer to enjoy each other rather than socializing with large groups. Water and Earth are compatible as tangible, physical entities. In turn, Taurus tends to have a more stable view of life than does Cancer and is less prone to emotional turmoil; therefore, Taurus can help Cancer stabilize their tumultuous feelings.
This can provide Cancer with an emotional rock, as Taurus is entirely dedicated to the relationship. In turn, Cancer can bring new inspiration to the relationship and start new projects that Taurus will enjoy taking over later. The steady, reliable team they make. Both Signs are dependable and nurturing, strongly oriented toward domestic life together.
Then, there's your Moon Sign, which shapes your emotional outlook. And finally, you have a rising sign, which is the face you show to the world.
If you want to figure out all three of your own signs, I recommend checking out Cafe Astrology's website. The most compatible zodiac sun signs: Fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius stereotypically tend to get along best with other Fire and Air signs: Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. But even with all of this information, the question remains: Can we really trust the zodiac to tell us which signs are meant for one another?
On the one hand, it sounds unlikely the stars could be controlling us.
On the other, when you consider that for years—centuries before dating apps had algorithms—matchmakers around the world used astrology to determine whether two people would make ideal partners, the zodiac does seem like a helpful tool. Instead, the reality is that though astrology provides us with a guide, in the end, we have complete control over who we choose to love.
Of course, many couples whose signs are astrologically compatible do indeed find themselves subliminally drawn towards each other. Take, for instance, my friend Michael Cardenas—a Taurus who also happens to be a professional witch and owner of the magic website Olde Ways. He says he and his Libra partner, Jon, knew right away that they were a perfect match.
An opposite example of such synergy comes via Cosmopolitan editor Julia Pugachevsky and her boyfriend, who have compatible fire sun signs, but incompatible lunar signs, which can—at times—lead to emotional miscommunications. Couples will often use "incompatible" astro signs as a motivational tool to work through differences. This variance can help the couple evolve together through a deeper understanding of themselves as individuals and as partners, Walker says.
Taurus relationships and romance
Emily Shippee , the managing editor at Teen Vogue, met her current partner before knowing that her Aries sun sign was a great match for her Aquarian beau. After dating for months, I gave them a couple's reading that helped them learn that they were ideal matches, based on their rising signs. Shippee, especially, was in awe, finding that her partner fell into her seventh house of relationships a factor that an astrologist can calculate through your birth chart.
