When Taurus and Gemini come together, they both need to give each other time to learn about the dynamic of the relationship. Both partners have a great deal to give each other! Gemini's Symbol is the Twins, and this Sign can often be of two minds about things. If Taurus can let go and give one Twin the security it wants while allowing the other Twin its freedom, this can be a long-lasting relationship. Early in the relationship, Taurus may want too much for Gemini's taste, but if Taurus is willing to wait a while, Gemini will eventually settle in to a dependable relationship that both partners will enjoy.
Taurus and Gemini have different approaches to life; Taurus is more sedate and practical, and Gemini is intellectual. It can be hard for Gemini to accept the down to earth approach of Taurus. It might be hard for Taurus to accept Gemini's flightiness and occasional lack of substance. Taurus can help Gemini to be more involved in life and to see the depth of ideas, rather than simply the surface. Gemini can help Taurus add variety and fun, bringing new excitement into both lives.
Taurus is ruled by the Planet Venus and Gemini is ruled by the Planet Mercury. Both of these Planets are close to the Sun, so they're always in the same neighborhood, even though they are very different. Venus is physical; it's about romance and sensuality. Mercury is the Planet of communication and has both masculine and feminine energy -- Gemini will take on the form that it chooses. Taurus doesn't need to be dazzled with Gemini's brilliance, but wants a dependable, sensual partner. Gemini has a more intellectual approach, but is good at understanding other people; they can learn to be the romantic and sensual partner that Taurus loves.
Taurus is an Earth Sign and Gemini is an Air Sign. Gemini makes decisions based on intellect, while Taurus is more practical. Taurus asks, 'How will this help me achieve my goals in life?' Gemini simply finds what interests them at the moment without having a set plan in mind. Conflicts can arise in this relationship if Taurus is too possessive or Gemini is too aloof or detached. Both need to learn that they view the world in different ways. Taurus can be too set in their ways for Gemini's taste, but Gemini may be too unpredictable for their Taurus partner. As long as Taurus understands that although Gemini may flirt, the relationship is still important to them, things will be fine! Gemini must use their flexibility to bend to their partner's will on occasion.
Taurus is a Fixed Sign and Gemini is a Mutable Sign. Taurus tends to be down-to-earth and focused on one project at a time, but Gemini likes to move from pastime to pastime as the feeling takes them. It's easy for Gemini to become interested in the projects to which Taurus is devoted. In turn, Taurus needs to give Gemini the independence that the Twins crave. Taurus can make Gemini's ideas produce something, even if Gemini has moved on; Gemini can show Taurus that versatility is sometimes better than a Fixed determination to do things one's own way.
The best aspect of the Taurus-Gemini relationship is the security the two can give each other, once Taurus allows Gemini to offer that security freely. Both partners can learn to look at the world through new eyes when they open themselves to each other. As long as they communicate, theirs will be a stable and happy relationship.
