When a Taurus man meets a Leo woman, fires spontaneously ignite. Taurus and Leo have a strong degree of sensual compatibility, and the strong Bull can be helplessly susceptible to the soft touch, purring voice, and passionate desires of a Lioness.
Are you having a hard time getting your head around a Taurus man, Leo? Finding yourself confused by his sudden distance or blocked by his almost seemingly willful refusal to take the next step in your relationships? Or, are you experiencing the dreaded Taurus man’s cold shoulder?
Well, I’m here to help and I promise you, by the time you’re done reading this you will better understand this man and yourself- and how you two relate to one another.
Taurus men love home, security and simple pleasures
Taureans have a quiet, earthy sexuality that is both appealing and makes people feel at ease with them immediately. They make friends easily and often have a large network of friends across all age groups.
The Taurean’s first mission in life is to create a secure and comfortable home and a comfortable cache in the bank. But he doesn’t just save money for the sake of seeing the zeros accumulate—he likes to make dreams a reality, and if he loves you, he will quietly and steadily save for years to buy his Lioness anything she wants.
Taurus men love their home and simple pleasures. They are also very close to their family, particularly their mothers. And they enjoy plenty of vigorous outdoor activity, which suits the normally athletic Leo just fine.
As a Leo woman, you have needs and you aren’t all that shy about demanding they be met! Rightfully so- you want to be adored. You want to know, beyond a shadow of a doubt that the man you are with not only loves you but is attracted to you, needs you, wants you and trusts you: above all others, once it’s serious. You’re the Queen of the Zodiac, and of course, you’re not wrong!
Your Taurus man, on the other hand, may prove to be a bit of a frustrating conundrum. Have you felt a distinct lack of romance? Maybe you have felt like he doesn’t really care at all! You may be deeply questioning how he feels because he went from being very affectionate or even passionate to cold and distant. What gives? What happened to the passion?
Probably nothing, actually!
Hear me out! I realize that what you’re going through may have you feeling a little lost, but, clarity is at hand- but first…
If you get more and more frustrated, he gets more and more distant- which doesn’t exactly inspire trust does it? Well, there’s a reason he is the way that he is. He’s a Taurus.
The truth is that a Taurus man and a Leo woman actually have MUCH more in common than you think!
Leo women are fiery, sensual and proud
Leo women have a disarming warmth and beautiful smile. They are known for their vivacity, intelligence, grace, and beauty. Pretty much, they have it all, and in a very sexy package, too. Leos exude enough sexuality for three women.
Leos have excellent taste in clothes and prefer classic styles. You probably have a wardrobe that answers every occasion—equally divided between formal wear, tasteful career clothing, and athletic gear. Leos are athletic, after all, and enjoy sports.
Attention and praise are food and fuel for a Leo woman. She may not always get that from the quiet, steady Taurus, but when he falls in love he will be devoted to her forever, and her fiercest protector.
Leo women do not like confinement, whether it’s in relationships, careers, or physical space. They’re fanatically fond of freedom and chafe at limitations. You’ll want to make sure that you’re secure in your own career, and that you have separate hobbies and social engagements where you can be a star in your own circles.
In your home, you’ll want some autonomy and a space of your own, whether it’s a studio where you can paint or write or even just a quiet reading corner that is all your own.
Leos are very popular and often a social leader, which appeals to the quietly gregarious Bull. He won’t mind sharing you with crowds of adoring fans, as long as you come home to him at night.
The Lioness is sentimental—she’ll have keepsakes from all her previous boyfriends (which your Taurus man may find highly annoying, but he won’t say anything).
So, you would like to be his focus or at least, get him to take some steps to show you how he feels. While you might be wondering what gives, he may not have thought anything was wrong at all- because he was showing you all along. Wait, what?
How can he be showing me how he feels if he’s not showing me anything at all? It’s simple: take a look at what he does do- when he does it, versus what he doesn’t.
Leo Women Expect a Man to Be Commanding Yet Adoring
Leo women admire masculinity and prefer alpha males. But at the same time, you demand respect and crave adoration. You like to feel cherished and need constant praise in order to feel secure in a relationship.
The Lioness also looks for a man who can provide the life she knows she deserves—one filled with luxuries (no matter how small) and literate friends. Just remember to give your patient Taurus time. If you win his love, he will work steadily and over time to build your castle (or yacht, or beach house).
Leo women love gifts and original compliments. You look for unusual and sincere praise, and you love a meaningful gift. Leos also love to shower others with gifts, and set very high standards for themselves when shopping for just the “right” gift.
The Taurus Guy loves consistency. Ever see how do the same matters or you appear to visit exactly the same locations? (Especially if they’re nostalgic!) There have a tendency to be two kinds of Taurus guys in the first phases of a relationship.
The one that’ll just go crazy with all things romantic- just a passionate dream come true and the one which appears to lack any initiative at all. I have heard some Leo women call Taurus men emotionally and romantically lazy! This isn’t actually true.
Additionally, you will probably find that no matter which he is- he is often acting confusing as he flips suddenly cold, and then back to passionate again. This MUST seem odd, given you have likely read a lot about that Taurus consistency- my articles included. It also makes perfect sense.
This has to do with the way that anxiety or worry is processed by a Taurus guy, actually. You may not understand this, but he’ll open when things are secure for him. For some reason, they are quite inclined to be the sort to throw the baby out with the bathwater, therefore it may be EXTREMELY confusing when you believe you’ve been perfect and unexpectedly, he shuts down. In those situations, you need to understand- it likely isn’t anything you’ve done or didn’t do.
One more thing to note is that Taurus isn’t known for making the very first move. You cannot be the wilting flower, waiting to be plucked with this one. He might be inclined towards more conventional romance yet as it pertains to being more forceful, particularly in love, he can need a nudge or two. Or three.
My grandmother always said that with a Taurus man, you have to let him chase you and let him catch you. What do you do with a guy who can’t be pushed but also seems SO oblivious to time to get a move on? Balance your approach. Give and take, though- never, ever hard to get.
Keeping certain things the same is totally a must with him and that may also cause difficulties if he’s not certain what to think of you. He doesn’t need to do anything until he’s entirely certain. So odds are, if you’re confused, he’s more confused. He won’t make a move if he doesn’t know success is assured, you see?
This is because while they may be intensely emotive: they have a difficult time showing it. For them, revealing emotion is frequently an indicator of susceptibility or weakness. This could make him look uncaring- when in fact, his trust is simply not readily won. It takes time and if he can’t trust your affection for him, he may not show his own.
Section of the confusion on his part comes from being a really tender, really heavy soul that gets caught up in traditionally male stereotypes. Needless to say, he adores them but at exactly the same time, take into consideration that which we’re usually told about guys: the stereotypes.
Guys, in general, are to be stoic, powerful or even just dumb! The media and everything else says men should be horny 24/7. A lot of folks understand these stereotypes aren’t accurate, yet, in particular for Taurus guys – they might be difficult.
If he’s opposed to such things: on an emotional level, what appears to be the distance to you may simply be your Taurus man trying way too hard to appear “stoic”, “strong”, and “masculine”. Think of it like Emotional Hard to Get- except, he doesn’t really mean to.
So, how does a Leo woman get her Taurus man in line?
First, KNOW THE TOP 5 TAURUS TURN OFFS!
I go into these in greater detail in my book (and so much more), but these tend to be the top dealbreakers for a Taurus man:
1) Pushy women
I am not talking about making the first move- but, if you look at your texts or inbox and the last 3-4 messages are all outgoing, you might have a bit of a problem. You can fix this, but stop texting him with no response- right now. This is just one example of “pushy” in the context of a Taurus man.
2) Not knowing you care
Hard to get is not at all the approach to take with a Taurus.
3) Being confused about how you feel
If you flip from one mood to another in the span of a few hours or if you aren’t clear with him, he probably won’t make any moves. They’re prone to getting this “deer in the headlights” level of confusion, so don’t confuse him! Keep it simple.
4) Head games
While Taurus tends to be fairly simple, simple doesn’t mean stupid. The only thing that will shut down a Taurus male faster than pushy behaviors is feeling like he’s being had.
5) Thinking you believe you are better than him
Under that calm veneer- Taurus men can be very insecure and often if he thinks you are “too good for him” or if he thinks you think it- he may back off quickly. Don’t ever patronize a Taurus.
If you have inadvertently done any of those things- or done them deliberately, read on! There is hope, Leo!
How To Use Your Strengths and Fight Your Challenges With Ease
Let’s take a look at the basics, here- the biggest advantage you have at your disposal when dealing with the Taurus male. You are both very keen on having the very best- and you, as a Leo woman have absolutely no problem not only knowing exactly what you want but getting it.
Taurus men, on the other hand, they often have a difficult time because they tend to base what they want on what they know they can have. This can lead to them being low in spirits if they don’t get it- which sort of boggles your royal Leo mind. How on earth would one get something they don’t believe they can have?
You have very little trouble with that and tend to know that you deserve the best. The expressive way you convey your emotions and the way you adore gift giving and spoiling people tends to be very appealing to the Taurus sensibilities.
Though most people would readily say that you can be a bit on the demanding side- would you think that of the quiet, steadfast Taurus? Anyone who makes the mistake of thinking they’re not demanding just because they’re quiet is making a nearly fatal flaw, emotionally. Taurus men are not just possessive but they expect quite a bit from their partners, which is something that you, being a Leo woman can fully relate to.
It isn’t all fine dining and hot sex between the two of you, either- though, if you haven’t gotten to that phase of the relationship: you’re in for a treat. His deeply sensual nature can be exactly the kind of adoration you need- when he feels confident in expressing it.
So, bringing that out in him is key- and the way to do that is in the way you approach this. Though in other areas of your life, you may be out in the open and flamboyant about what you want, with him, show him the softer, gentler side of the purring kitten within.
Make what you feel and what you want to be known, but do so by way of a very feminine approach: every date, make sure you’re dressed very well, make sure you smell very well and be sure he knows it’s just for him.
Your planetary ruler is the Sun whereas his ruler is the Venus. This is a powerhouse combination- because astrologically speaking, it forms a strong basic attraction. You both love living in the lap of luxury and both of you are tremendously loyal.
The problem arises in the fixed nature of your signs- you see, we have different modalities in terms of the zodiac. Fixed, Cardinal, and Mutable- each zodiac falls within one of these categories. The fixed signs are Leo, like you- Taurus, Scorpio, and Aquarius.
The energy you carry when you are a fixed sign is very stubborn and very steady. You don’t have any problems taking care of business, and you don’t have any issues moving forward to reach your goals.
Actually, this is something of a deep inner motivation for both you and your Taurus man, which is a strong thing to have in common but can create a bit of head-butting when it comes to HOW.
Neither one of you is fond of change- but, well, you have Leo pride and Taurus bullheadedness in the mix and this is where you can either make it or break it.
Even if your relationship is so awful, the odds of either of you calling it quits in a swift fashion aren’t good: so this can either be a great thing or a bad thing, depending on the quality of the relationship itself.
If your Taurus is out of touch, but there hasn’t been a tremendous amount of conflict, keep this in mind to prevent you from being over the top and pushing too hard.
Likely, he hasn’t given up- but he may need a breather from that intense fire energy within you! Problem is…even that tenacity may well create a big problem when neither one of you wants to admit defeat or own up to a mistake.
A break up that’s drawn out and a relationship that is on again and off again is very easy to lapse into for the both of you in this situation- but it can be avoided!
What will end the relationship and how you can avoid it
Ah, that stubbornly fixed energy! There’s really nothing quite like it and when two fixed signs are walking the same path: you will never, ever stop that couple!
Those of you who’ve been together a while may know this very well- when you and your Taurus man are setting goals in motion, very little stands in your way.
You are both a tremendous support to one another- and, if you’re just newly with a Taurus or trying to get things in order: bear this in mind because this is something that the Taurus man likes to see to let him know a relationship has long-term potential!
The biggest downfall and failure in this relationship, no matter what phase it’s in: is a refusal to compromise. A refusal in your case, to drop the pride and listen and in his- to drop bad habits or mindsets that hold him in place.
To be brutally honest- even one argument between you can drag on and on for weeks to even months if you let it. Neither wants to “lose” and neither wants to “give up”.
Even once that happens, though- both of your signs are NOTORIOUS for holding onto a grudge! You, in particular, may feel like you’re punished over and over again for one mistake made, or like you never hear the end of it! Don’t let him do that.
Of all the things you can use that powerful Leo pride for: never ever let your Taurus man walk all over you. While he doesn’t like being pushed around, eventually, he’ll drop a doormat flat, too.
He wants the best, and well, much as he enjoys getting his way- a doormat is never the best and you do deserve better than that, anyway!
If you have been together a while, now, and you’re here because it’s just been like this for so long: the cycle has to stop with someone, and if you want to work it out, it may be you that has to stop it.
Once you do, however, your Taurus man will follow suit. Might slip up here and there- but, if you mindfully stop bringing up old arguments or mistakes, he will, too.
“Please understand I am talking about now.” is a power phrase here. Calmly asserting that boundary, while also adhering to it in your relationship will help. I promise you that! It will take patience and time for both of you- but, you will see progress pretty quickly.
If this is a new relationship, you may need to understand that even as you have been hurt in the past- so has he and again: if other aspects of his life aren’t stable or well managed, he may be very distant with you.
So, if you KNOW he has some things to sort out on his end- being patient and understanding may be the way to not just show him the support and stability he needs: but get him to snap out of that funk!
What you MUST remember about Taurus men!
For you, this one’s going to be hard. Because for as much as you have in common- him being an Earth Sign and you being a Fire Sign matters a great deal.
You have the power to hurt him so much worse than he has with you- believe it or not. He may not outwardly show it the way that you would- but if he’s distant, he’s wounded, whether by something else or you: so understand it from that perspective.
Compromise is the ultimate key- and the hard thing about these men is that often, even once you have: it takes them a little time to come around. However, they always do.
The key to finding that everlasting love you know he has the potential for- is being able to work for it just as hard as you would for anything else you felt you deserve, Leo.
If He’s Out of Touch, Completely
Unfortunately much has been said about what to do when any man is distant and seems to be afraid of commitment. Most of it is completely untrue and in many cases, it can be the nail in your relationship’s coffin, even in the early stages with a Taurus.
So many women come to me thinking that because her Taurus man is distant or he’s ambiguous about what he wants- that is his fear of commitment showing when it’s not.
Often, if he is out of touch, the best thing you can do is- let him be out of touch for a while. Give it at least a week before you reach out and when you do: make sure you’re just reaching out and not pushing.
Don’t chase him, don’t explode with over the top declarations of your love for him or suspicious messages. Those things will assure he stays gone- and you don’t WANT that.
Honestly, the Taurus man wants the exact same thing that you do. He wants that once in a lifetime relationship, security and a satisfying relationship that will help him grow, but also, someone he can nurture.
So, that being said if this is what he wants, why is it he’s distant now? I covered that but, the most important question is- what can you do about it?
For now, ask yourself these questions:
1) Are things actually going as well as you thought or are you only seeing what you want to?
Leo women are notorious for putting men up on pedestals- when you love, you go big or go home and there is nothing wrong with that! However, the odds are good you’ve been thinking about this as a relationship much, much longer than he has- purely by virtue of him wanting to see progress and be assured by more time.
2) Before he dropped out of touch, what were the things he tried to tell you? Did you listen to respond or did you listen to argue those points?
Remember- Taurus men will work diligently towards their goals once they’re moving on them, so odds are good he did express his concerns more than once in a variety of ways. Think about those.
3) Have you been unclear with him about the level of commitment you felt you had or that you wanted?
Did you actually say TO HIM that you wanted to be with him and him alone, or ask him if that was what he was also looking for? If he has been unclear about your motivations or intentions- he may not even realize he’s doing anything wrong!
4) HOW have you communicated with him so far? Was it sort of directed more at yourself and less at him?
Of course, we all want fulfilling relationships but often, there is a tendency in Leo women to focus on her needs or relate his needs to hers- so, you may want to take stock of how balanced things have been. Same holds true if the focus was all on him. It MUST be 100/100- not 50/50, and definitely not something like 75/25 in terms of focus and effort.
Like every Lioness, you can be a rollicking, funny playmate in private, but you don’t appreciate undue familiarity from strangers. In fact, you can be downright icy around the edges if you think someone is treading on your turf without first getting your approval.
You may need to be careful about seeming aloof or chilly when you first meet his friends and family. Taurus men typically have a huge and cheerful network—it may seem overwhelming at first, but trust your Taurus’ good sense and give yourself time to get acquainted.
Leo women love to spend money on spas, clothes, gym memberships and beauty products. While this helps you cultivate the sexy appearance that your Taurus man loves, it will definitely distress him if you’re drawing on relationship finances to do this. You should plan to maintain your own income and spending accounts so that you have the freedom to spend money on your appearance or gifts without manly oversight.
Leo women can snarl and bare their claws when frustrated and are not afraid to roar. Since these two sun signs are squared, they can clash violently. A fire sign, Leos are significantly short on patience (unlike the steady Bull), but if you remember that you both have the same goals in life you will undoubtedly find (after you calm down) that are plenty of compromises.
The best way to calm an indignant Taurus is not by being haughty, but by hugging, kissing and soothing him. He’s a teddy bear at heart, and it will work out much better for you than challenging his intractable stubbornness.
You know that deep down, all you really need is to connect and be heard by your partner or potential partners and, well, your Taurus man shares that desire with you. Our own fears and worries can often color the way we connect and create barriers to those connections. We create walls that prevent us from ever truly connecting when our own insecurity is sort of triggered by our current circumstances.
Ever notice how even when you do, you cannot fully be vulnerable because you see little signs that may look like red flags- but, often, they’re just not. That’s your old wounds controlling your behavior and putting up walls to understanding- and I promise, once you begin your journey in healing that, you’ll find yourself enjoying deeper, much more meaningful connections without worry.
In your current situation, you may find this especially helpful as it empowers you to recognize that being patient isn’t going to cause you to “lose your chance”!
The sooner you start that journey- the better, though! First, take the time to look inside yourself about what you TRULY want for yourself and go from there.
Then, take some big, bold steps- my deeper, more intensive look at your Taurus man can help you better understand him and then, we can go from there to explore your natal chart, his natal chart and even your compatibility from an astrological perspective!
You will find that these are invaluable insights into everything and the sooner you get started, the better.
