Taurus and Scorpio: Will They Make it or Break It?


A scorpion and a bull walk into a bar… no this isn’t a joke that ends with a priest appearing around the corner next. So let’s pretend that this scenario is playing out. What do you think would happen? Would the bull step on the scorpion? Or would the scorpion sting the bull first, instantly killing him before he, too, faced a similar fate? 

Before you double-check if you’re reading the correct blog, hear me out. Love is complicated folks. Sure, maybe this is how these two animals would interact if they ever crossed paths in real life, but if you’ve read even a fraction of these articles, you’ve probably picked up on my penchant for metaphors. So metaphorically speaking, you might be surprised to find out that if these two animals strolled into the bar, they wouldn’t immediately switch to fight-or-flight mode.

But quite the opposite. The bull would probably buy the scorpion a drink, but not before the scorpion bought him a shot. In this fantasy world, these two actually get along quite well. And that’s where you two come in: Taurus, the bull, and Scorpio, you guessed it, Mr. Scorpion.

Taurus Zodiac Symbol


My bull-headed friend, you’re a bit stubborn, aren’t you? Are you staring at your screen right now with a single eyebrow raised, not impressed? Well, hear me out. Taurus, there’s more to you than just your inability to back down from your passions (and who said that’s a bad thing?!).

Your symbol, the bull, represents your determination and strength, while being a fixed, earth sign explains your nurturing nature, your patience, and groundedness.

Rounding you out is Venus, the planet of love and beauty that rules your sign, and this is where you value the best in all things: books, movies, art, and most importantly, your relationships. You have high expectations, Taurus, and you don’t settle for less than what you know you deserve.

Scorpio Zodiac Symbol


Scorpio, you, like your Taurean partner, also know exactly what you deserve. Your symbol, the scorpion, symbolized your power and intimacy, but also your penchant for coming after those who wrong you.

Respect is everything to you. Unlike Taurus, however, you’re ruled by two planets: Pluto–the ruler of psychic energy like intuition, and Marsh, the rules of communication and self-expression.

This combination means that you’re a force to be reckoned with and you don’t hesitate to speak your mind, especially when you’re talking about something you’re passionate about.

Like Taurus, you’re a fixed sign, which gives you the same determined stable energy Taurus possesses. However, unlike Taurus, you’re a water sign, which means you’re not just in tune with your emotions, but you feel things intensely, and this makes your approach to life a bit of a ‘my way or the highway’ mentality, which might repel some signs, but will elicit respect from others.

Taurus and Scorpio in Friendship

In the Zodiac, signs that are on the exact opposite sides of the wheel possess an instant attraction, a magnetic pull neither of you fully understand. That is the case for you, Scorpio, born October 23rd to November 21st, and you, Taurus, born April 20th to May 20th. Often, in these match-ups, the signs share a difference in personality but similar core values, but you two have more in common personality-wise than you may initially think. Both of you are incredibly determined, and when it comes to getting something that you want, like the stubbornness of a bull or the bravery of a scorpion, neither of you will back down.

Friend Date: Mani/Pedi or Streaking on the Beach at Midnight?

If your mutual friends introduced you two in a group gathering, they probably braced themselves, expecting it not to go well. Taurus is a bit of homebody, steady and grounded, while you, Scorpio, are much more of a wild card, not biting your tongue when someone pisses you off.

Your friends are probably surprised then, when they discover that Taurus is actually amused by your bluntness, and you Scorpio, automatically give Taurus the respect you sometimes reserve to give people until you know them better. Scorpio is more guarded than you, Taurus, but you, Taurus, appreciate that; it frustrates you when people just jump into friendships or relationships without truly knowing someone. 

You both value loyalty, and you’ll find that when you hang out, it’s less about what the two of you do together and more about the conversations you dive into. This is a relief for you, Scorpio. You often feel like you constantly need to be moving or entertaining your friends, and when you’re around Taurus, you discover that you don’t have to wear the mask you normally dawn in life.

You can truly be you. And Taurus, when it comes to hanging out with friends, it’s just nice to meet someone like Scorpio who is flexible and understanding of your desire to hang in, while also being blunt and honest about what they want and feel.

Although you’re a water sign, Scorpio, you’re often mistaken as being a ball of fire. In the wrong hands, your intensity can come off as obnoxious, but to the ones who understand you, they know you’re just passionate. For this reason, friends like Taurus, will give you full reign to dive deep into the conversations that matter, even when it comes to talking about personal aspects of your friendship.

Taurus, you’d rather show your appreciation for your friends than talk about it, but there’s something about Scorpio that draws you out of your comfort zone, their directness and honesty as pure as they come. You won’t join in to the same level as they do, but you will listen to everything they have to say and offer your thoughts will just as much genuineness.

Dating Advice: Send His Name or Send His Social?

Scorpio, you are an emotional–and sexual being–and for that reason, you won’t hold back in expressing your feelings to your friends when it comes to dating. Taurus is the opposite and usually tired of hearing their friends fall head over heels for complete strangers, but listening to you, Scorpio is a different experience. While you, Scorpio, feel your emotions hard, that doesn’t mean you jump headfirst and fall in love after a first date.

You have a guard up and know better than to trust the first person who buys you roses. Still, you’re still human, and affection is something you enjoy. If anything, the way you handle–and talk about–new love is something Taurus admires. You Scorpio, offer a safe place for Taurus to express the feelings about new love that they often would keep to themselves.

Taurus and Scorpio in Love

With love, you two are fiercely protective of the people who matter to you. Loyalty is a core value you both share and although it may take time for you both to fully trust each other, once you open yourselves up to that experience, you’ll both realize that you’ve met a partner who mirrors your love, passion–and stubbornness. You both crave stability and won’t back away when things get rough.

But just like your friendship, disagreement may arise, and you both will struggle with shutting down emotionally, especially if you feel like you’re in the right. Neither of you are fond of being wrong, but when push comes to shove, you will put your relationship above your ego, and although it may take time, you will eventually learn how to apologize.

First Date Icon

The First Date: Roses or KFC?

This first date will be an interesting one, mainly because the connection simmering between you two will be less in the words that are said, and more in the silence between sentences. Scorpio, while you have a guard up in love, you can immediately tell that Taurus doesn’t play games. They’re straight shooters, both in the vibe they get off and in their words, their practicality keeping them firmly in the present moment. You need this Scorpio, because while you want love, you know that trust is something built over time, and you’ve been fooled in the past by people who go all in too fast.

Because of your down-to-earth nature, Taurus, you will probably prefer a quiet night at dinner over a crowded bar, and Scorpio is a-okay with that. You both are fixed signs after all, and stability is something to be sought after. But Scorpio can also be an extrovert when things get dull, but not with you Taurus. In fact, you might be the first person Scorpio is content enjoying conversation with over having a wild night out. And that’s how they know you’re special.

Love Language Icon

Love Language Do’s and Don’ts: A Dealbreaker?

You two will differ in this, and that can either make or break this bond. Taurus, you express your love through your actions, preferring quality time and acts of service over long-winded conversations that analyze any potential problems in your relationship. Scorpio, you’re too passionate to keep your thoughts in, especially when you feel wronged. You speak your mind as soon as something hits you, and you really don’t like it when Taurus shuts down.

This can lead to some volatile argument if you two aren’t careful–Taurus, after all, can only be pushed so far. It’s more likely, however, that the two of you will shut down emotionally in the moment, resorting to silence over yelling. As long as you can remember that your relationship is worth the conversation, you two will eventually learn how to work through your issues and end up stronger than you were before.

Sexy Time Icon

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

It may take you a bit of time to reach this point, but when you do, let’s hope for your neighbors’ sake that you don’t live in an apartment building with thin walls. With intimacy, you two are a force of grandeur.

Taurus, you’re incredibly sensual, and you often do best in expressing yourself through action, and that includes what goes down behind closed doors. You thrive in an environment where you can show your love rather than speak it, and when you meet someone who shares this trait, you two are bound to have a good time. 

Scorpio, this is where you get your reputation for having a fiery spirit. Not just a ball of fire either. You’re a nuclear bomb waiting to explode, eager to explore every aspect of your partner possible. And when Taurus’s sensuality meets Scorpio’s energy, and you dance together on the stable ground you’ve developed in your relationship, nothing is off the table.

The Verdict?

Keep in mind that if you two don’t figure out how to communicate, you both have the potential to sweep things under the rug, where resentment can fester. Fortunately, for you two, your bond will be so effortless that you won’t have to worry about intense disagreements rising.
