Taurus and Cancer – Match Made in the Heavens?


You know those couples you see on the street corner, holding hands, arms wrapped around each other, eyes milking with love. If you’re recently out of a break up, you probably want to vomit. Your therapist tells you that you’ve just lost your rose colored glasses, and that this cynical stage will pass. You also think you’re paying her too much, but that’s a story for another day. Love like that? Impossible. There’s something about that couple that looks like it’s been plucked straight from a hallmark Christmas movie. There’s no way love that deep, that real, exists.

The light changes, and the couple walks across in front of your car, their smiles effortless, the pep in their step making them float. Even their laughter makes your ears bleed. They’re in the honeymoon stage, surely. Except they’re also like eighty-years-old, have rings on their hands, and their kids and grandchildren are railing behind them. Seriously? Can love like that exist?

Taurus Zodiac Symbol


Just because you’re ruled by Venus, the planet of love, Taurus, doesn’t make you an automatic lover. In fact, as a fixed sign, you prefer stability and dependability, and as a result, you very well may have been single for a significant time. Time is precious, and you know you can always depend on yourself. You’re picky about who you date, but you’re also a genuine nurturer by nature, meaning you have love to give, and you enjoy giving it. It’s just a matter of meeting the right person. You’re patient and understanding to an extent. You don’t like to be pushed out of your comfort zone. Fortunately for you, there are some signs in the zodiac–like little ol’ Cancer–who know exactly how you feel.

Cancer Zodiac Symbol


Like your symbol, the crab, you, Cancer, understand the saying that happiness is where home is. Ruled by the moon, the planet of intuition and emotions, you’re a sensitive spirit who very much appreciates your space and solitude. You’re a cardinal sign–the aspect of the Zodiac that starts each of the four seasons, and this makes you a front-runner when it comes to going after what you want. But unlike other cardinal signs (Aries, Libra, and Capricorn), you are also a water sign, which makes you more of a dreamer than the rest. Like your planet, the moon, being a water sign means you lean towards the emotional when it comes to interacting with people, making you empathetic of others but also incredibly genuine in how you express yourself.

Taurus and Cancer in Friendship

Your friendship is akin to the hallmark couple on the side of the road: effortless, you two just click. If Taurus, the earth sign, is a hilly, meadow, then Cancer, the water sign, is the creek that flows downhill, and gravity is the bond that keeps you two together. When you meet this person, you instantly understand you found someone special. While you both are kind, understanding, and patient, it’s difficult to find someone who has those qualities, while also matching your low-key energy.

You’ll have no problem with compromising your own desires in order to placate your friend’s needs, and because this is a mutual trait of yours, you’ll find that sacrifice isn’t even necessary in your friendship. Your selfless nature will make it so the two of you will always have each other’s backs. It’s more likely that disagreements won’t even occur between the two of you, and while the two of you are the less talkative of the Zodiac signs, you’ll never question your friendship, because your trust will be built out of the seamless vibe you two share, one that doesn’t require reassurance with words.

You two are more tentative when it comes to dating. Taurus, you’re the more grounded and realistic of the two, and you won’t let yourself fall for someone until you decide they’re worth not being a stranger. You often don’t talk about the early stages of dating to your friends, but if you do, Cancer will be one of them, mainly because they will understand your hesitance. Cancer, like Taurus, you are interested in genuine connections with people and while you will fall a little faster than Taurus, you will know how to identify genuine people when you see them, and just in case you’re not sure, you know you will have the practicality of your Taurus friend to keep you grounded just in case.

Taurus and Cancer in Love

If Cancer is the one who builds the house, then Taurus is the one who sweeps in and makes it a home. That natural balance in your friendship only deepens when it comes to love, and if you started as friends, it probably won’t take long before you take that extra step into something more. Even as strangers, you’ll see the spark, and although you might not be able to identify what’s causing the flame, you’ll flock to it, because you’ll sense that the connection between you two is deeper than anything you’ve experienced before.

You’re looking for the same thing in life: a stable, loving relationship without drama, where you both feel loved, wanted, and respected. And with this match-up, you’ll find that your instant click in communication will mean your first date will be filled with conversation over action. Expect the second date to be at one of your places, but not because you’re ready to hop into the bedroom. If anything, you both prefer the comfort of home and when you find someone else who enjoys that, you know you’ve found the place you want to be.

Fights happen. Even in a perfect pairing like this, you two are bound to have disagreements. And it will most likely stem from both of your inability to express your thoughts directly. You two prefer to show your love with actions: acts of service or quality time are your preferences. You both are internal processors and need time to focus and process what you’re feeling to understand it and express it to one another. However, your loyalty to your love means this won’t take long. You’ll always express yourselves eventually and when you do, your apologies will be genuine and honest, and always lead to more growth.

Sexy Time: Slow and Steady or Chompin’ at the Bit?

Taurus, intimacy for you is a tender, sensual, and bonding opportunity to develop closeness with your partner more than you already have. The depth of your physical bond will only grow based on how close you feel to one another, as Cancer, you find yourself more attracted to people you have an emotional connection with. As a result, you may not get under the sheets immediately, both of you wanting to be certain that this honeymoon stage you’re experiencing is the real thing. But in the same way, you crave a mental connection with your partner, you both want to experience physical affection, so there’s also a chance you’ll encourage those questioning thoughts, trust your gut, and just go for it. And you’ll be happy you did. If anything, you will find that sex between you two only solidifies the depth of your bond.

The Verdict?
