Taurus, imagine this. You’ve just bought a house, and everything is perfect except for the yard. It’s completely barren, just one pile of dirt. You have a vision in mind, and you know exactly what you want to develop: a beautiful concrete slab, the start of a deck. It will be stable, level, grounded, and smooth.
There’s just one problem. Your partner, Gemini, thinks it’s too predictable. They want flowers, maybe a bit of shrubbery, and definitely lots of color. You know their opinion is probably going to change by tomorrow, and you’re not surprised when you wake up and find that’s exactly what has happened.
So what did they do? Instead of coming up with new decorations, something natural to decorate the yard around the concrete slab, they’ve let your two dogs run straight across the wet concrete, creating an entire path of prints. And then they carved your names into the corner around a big heart.
It’s not what you have picked for the yard. Far from it, but you love it, anyway, Taurus. Because you know you picked as your partner, and there’s a reason Gemini constantly draws you in.
What happens when Venus, the planet of love, meets Mercury, the planet of communication?
Taurus, like the smooth concrete of the original plan for your yard, you are stable and level-headed, preferring simplicity and groundedness. And although you are careful with your money, your house is far from a shack. You have a fondness for the finer things in life, and when you spend your money, you know how to spend it well. Like the bull, the symbol of your sign, you are relaxed until provoked, and when that happens, everyone in the vicinity beware because you won’t hold back your thoughts.
Fortunately, that doesn’t happen often. You’re a calm person by nature, Taurus, and as long as you’re following your schedule, beating the drum of your predictability, then all goes well in your life. As the most grounded signs of the Zodiac, you Taurus, struggle with your patience for more impulsive signs, but over time you’ve learned that with certain signs, the benefits of your similarities outweigh the differences.
While Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, you, Gemini are ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication. And boy, does that describe you. You crave connection with other people and love learning about strangers and figuring out how you can make them your friends. However, you’re also a bit of a wild card.
Your symbol, the twins, means that there are two different sides to your personality: a more controlled, balanced side, and your impulsive, spontaneous self. It’s the reason you initially agreed with your partner about the slab of concrete in the backyard and then immediately had forty-five different ideas of how you could make it look even better. As an air sign, you’re empathic, intellectual, and curious, and although you are much more impulsive than your Taurus counterpart, your ability to put yourself in other’s shoes allows the two of you to build a unique relationship, partnership, or friendship.
Gemini and Taurus in Friendship
Taurus, you consider yourself pretty level-headed, and you thrive on consistently and predictably in your life. Gemini, you are indecisive, enthusiastic, and always open to new experiences. On paper, the two of you would make a strange match, and yet somehow it works. Gemini (between May 21st-June 21st) and Taurus (April 21st-May 20th) are next to each other on the Zodiac wheel. When two signs border each other like this, there is the possibility of being born on the ‘cusp’ or right in between the two signs (in this case it would be May 17th-May 23rd) which means that you often have personality traits from both signs. And even if this isn’t the case, this overlap allows these two signs to understand why the other person behaves and acts the way they do.
Friend Date: Mani/Pedi or Streaking on the Beach at Midnight?
Taurus, you typically prefer a quiet night at home, while you Gemini need to be getting out of the house, meeting people, and experiencing new things. This would often mean that you two might not end up in the same two places to become friends, but Gemini’s ability to interact with pretty much anyone, means they have probably found their way into your friend group somehow. And Gemini doesn’t always need to be out and about. Although they are natural extroverts, they also crave time alone and will occasionally opt for slower-moving nights, like the game night or group hangout you decide to throw at home, Taurus. And what you discover when you two meet up is that there is an allure to each other’s lifestyle. In fact, Gemini is probably one of the best signs to encourage Taurus to come out of their shell and leave behind their predictable schedule for a bit of fun.
Friend-Fection: Keep It on the Dl or Text ‘Love Ya Biatch?’
The reason you two are capable of connecting so well together has less to do with what you two actually do, and how you do it. Because no matter where you two go, you’ll always find something to talk about. While Gemini is usually the one bringing it out of more introverted Taurus, once Taurus starts talking, they will continue with a passion that Gemini understands. You’re both independent and hardworking, and it’s not surprising if the two of you have similar jobs, hobbies, or interests. Either way, as friends, you offer each other just enough support to keep the other moving forward, even if it’s usually Gemini who has to encourage Taurus to speak up.
Dating Advice: Send His Name or Send His Social?
Gemini, you are the more playful and sociable of these two signs, while Taurus, you prefer practicality and simplicity. These differences in your personality are often reflected in how the two of you date. Taurus, with dating, you are only patient for so long. You don’t like games and avoid them at all costs, which is often why you don’t have high expectations when you start dating. You’re realistic, and for that reason, you don’t talk much about who you’re dating, until you’re sure that potential exists.
Gemini, you’re the opposite. You are a talker! You will not only spend an entire first date finding out everything there is to know about your date, but then you’ll call five friends on your way home and tell them all about your night. Of all your friends, however, you value Taurus’s level-headed opinion. They keep you grounded when you’re starting to lift off the ground, while you, Gemini, are the first one Taurus will call when they start to get excited. It’s a balance, and it works. Unlike most signs, your differences are what makes your friendship great.
Gemini and Taurus in Love
There’s a big chance that if you’ve gotten to this point, you two were friends first. And even if you met as strangers, you realized that you two could bond in a deep way, one where even as lovers, you two feel like you’re friends. That’s not to say this match up is all roses and kisses, however. Remember how this started? You guys might have moved in together, but Gemini still let the dog run across the wet concrete. An intimate relationship between these two signs will take more work than a friendship. Taurus will need to tap into that well of patience, and you, Gemini, will need to communicate your desires and need for spontaneity. If you two keep silent on these matters, resentment can brew and your fights will turn out as passionate as your fun.
The First Date: Roses or KFC?
When you two first meet, you might write off your differences as lacking potential. Taurus will be quieter of the two of you, and won’t want to stay out late. You have a schedule, after all. Gemini will do most of the talking and may overwhelm the conversation. But what you will discover is that you two, while having different approaches to life, are similar in your kindness and understanding of other signs. If you can get past your unique approaches to communicating, you will discover that Taurus’s steadfast loyalty, and Gemini’s enigmatic charm, will create some interesting and fun conversations that will probably keep Taurus up late, and turn Gemini into a listener instead of just the talker.
Love Language Do’s and Don’ts: A Dealbreaker?
Taurus, you express yourself in your actions. You’re better at this than words, and although you know your Gemini prefers words of affirmation, sometimes you struggle with expressing yourself. Giving is an effortless aspect of your personality. If you two fight before you express your apology, you’re more likely to take out the trash, cook dinner, and clean the house before you mention a single word. This can prove a problem for you, Gemini. You’re an external processor, and you need to talk your thoughts out the minute they come, especially if you’re frustrated.
Sometimes your Taurus partner will shut down when this happens but don’t freak out. You just need to understand they express themselves differently than you. And Taurus, you, as an internal processor, will eventually come around, ready to have the conversation Gemini needs. As long as you two understand your differences, you can make this work. And remember the key to love languages: asking for what you need but also giving what your partner needs, even if it’s outside your comfort zone. In this case, that would be you, Taurus, learning how to speak up, and you, Gemini, understanding that Taurus will talk when they’re ready.
Sexy Time: Slow and Steady or Chompin’ at the Bit?
If you two have gotten past your initial differences on that first date, it’s probably because you’ve recognized that sometimes you don’t need to date yourself in order for things to work. Gemini, it’s your confidence that will initially attract the more shy Taurus. While, Taurus, it’s your steadfast stability that the fickle, indecisive Gemini will flock to. It’s also probably because there is an immediate physical attraction between the two of you.
Taurus, you’re a sensual individual, who wants to embrace every aspect of intimacy with your partner. For you, it’s all about sharing your energy with another person. Gemini, you like this and all, but you have a bit of a problem with immediate gratification, and while this passion will light sparks in Taurus, it can also be a bit overwhelming early on. Taurus, you may want to go slower, while Gemini may risk getting bored. But once you two have developed an understanding between the two of you, you’ll establish a balance in your relationships that expands beyond the emotional and mental intimacy but your physical connection as well.
This friendship, despite your differences on paper will unfold effortlessly and seamlessly, the two of you building each other up. As a couple, those same differences that brought you together as friends, may initially put you off. But once you understand the benefits you two can offer each other, you’ll find that as long as you Taurus, continue to communicate, and you, Gemini, give them the space to do that, you have the potential for something solid, healthy, and real.
