Both earthy Taurus man and airy Libra woman are ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty. But, that doesn’t mean they share the same values. This is one of the matches in the zodiac that could be either a huge success or a big disaster. Find out how compatible are Taurus man and Libra woman.
“If my sign is ruled by Venus, and his sign is ruled by Venus- shouldn’t we get along better?” This is something I have heard from so many women when it comes to the Libra woman and Taurus man match. Doesn’t work out quite that way, does it?
When I refer to planetary rulership, I am talking about the planet which rules your sign. Of course, sharing that ruling planet does indicate you’d have a lot in common and probably, more than a little bit of an issue with putting people on pedestals. Of course, yes, you both love the finer things in life and the chemistry between you two is probably nearly electric!
But, you can both be a bit gunshy on taking the steps you need to get a relationship moving, for very different reasons. You can also both be a little bit at odds when it comes to conversations- and you may at times feel like it’s you doing all the talking!
This is because Taurus men are pretty much notorious for the way they think things through. Whereas you, as a Libra woman, can be just a little on the indecisive side at times.
Earth Sign meets Air Sign, Cardinal meets Fixed
Your sign is ruled by air- and his by Earth. This can create a bit of a compatibility issue as well as the fact that your sign’s modality is Cardinal, whereas his sign is Fixed.
What does this mean? Well, I go into this a bit more in detail in my book, Taurus Man Secrets. Each sign is ruled by an element and each sign carries a modality, which is essentially how it expresses itself.
You probably adore the way that he can dream up the things he wants. But, when it comes to acting on that, he seems to fall a little short. For you, this can be hard to understand as you are something of a doer.
You want it, you start doing something about it, rather than ruminating on it. His stubbornness and refusal to change can also be something of a roadblock to happiness as this frustrates you when it comes time to take things to the next level!
That isn’t to say this pairing simply won’t work- oh, it definitely does. One of the powerhouse couples of the zodiac- a Taurus man and a Libra woman are a force to be reckoned with when the relationship is well balanced. You want nothing more than to change things up and make them better- and his solid, practical nature can certainly help you in doing exactly that.
Is your Taurus man a little boring, Libra woman?
Placid Taurus can add some curves to perfectionist Libra’s sharp edges, while sociable Libra can enhance Taurus’ stale social life and help him live a bit more.
Both signs really like the finer things and being spoiled. But, where Taurus is tactile and given to physical expression, Libra is less free with affection and thinks poetry is a form of foreplay.
Problems arise when these lovers disagree. Taurus will want to solve any issues with a bout of red-hot loving sex. Libra will be icy and untouchable until you’ve talked through all the issues.
This means minor conflicts can escalate with neither side prepared to back down. As in all relationships, compromise is key. But, in this case, it’s difficult for both parties to understand why they just cannot seem to find each other again.
Libra woman is flirty and sociable
As a Libra, you tend to be a bit more on the sociable side and you’re good at it. He, on the other hand, is a bit of a homebody and this can sometimes be a bit boring- until you get him out and about.
You have the unique ability to appeal to him on an emotional level, which can help to bring him out of his shell a bit and teach him to be much more confident.
In return, though: that practical and stubborn nature which can be frustrating will also work in your favor! He can sort of be..well, not so much the wind beneath your wings but more the earth beneath your feet. This can be a huge benefit as it helps to create a much more stable life together for you both: which you both crave.
This is another one of those relationships that can also be really hard to let go of if things get hard- though, you tend to be a bit more adept at doing so than him.
You handle change much more fluidly than he does and if he feels like you’re distant you may find HIM very cold and closed off as well- so be careful of that.
Your Venus rulership expresses itself a little differently than his, though. When you do fall in love, you go all in- you really have a hard time seeing the flaws in someone until it’s too late and well, Taurus men being somewhat traditionalists: he may court you a bit, and then, if he gets too comfortable, that romance dries up and it can be a big disappointment!
People should never assume that because Libra is ruled by Venus that all you want is love. Your understanding of love and attachment is a complex, intellectual web of interconnected ideas that are not easily expressed in a hug or an orgasm.
Your biggest sexual challenge has always been to stop hovering above the act of thinking about it and to be there as a panting, lustful body. You have very clear ideas about what love means and how parties in a relationship should behave.
You need to feel understood before you open up to passion, and a Taurus man can be patient enough to hear you out. But, he’ll want to touch you while pretending to listen and this may drive you mad.
Taurus man – sensual and jealous guy
Sensual serious Taurus men are gift giving, pampering masters of demonstrative love. Their sexual style can be a bit overwhelming for reserved and thoughtful Librans.
Strong emotions scare you. So with a Taurus man, who expresses his strong desire in no uncertain terms, you may feel bullied or uncomfortable. The trick with a Taurus man, for a Libra woman, is to focus on beauty and where you feel it is bountiful, just go with it, don’t think it to death.
Taurus cannot stand a woman who flirts and will start to brood or even plot revenge if he thinks your eye is wandering. Flirting is your Olympic sport, so your Taurus man is going to be dishing out a lot of red cards, and eventually, this becomes tiresome for both of you.

He gets so mad when you just talk to other people!
This is often a problem for this relationship matchup in particular. There are all sorts of joking stereotypes out there about Libra, in particular, because people say you have an issue with flattery and temptation.
That’s not necessarily true. But, flattery does turn your head quite a bit, even if you never act on it. Sometimes, what seems to you to be harmless fun- just a nice conversation will have your Taurus man just seething inside!
This is because he is a very possessive man- though he may not always express this as clearly as he should because he’s afraid of appearing vulnerable or weak.
What this means is some strong groundwork needs to be in play before the two of you take further steps. Sometimes, if a Taurus is in a new relationship or feeling someone out for one and he sees this sort of behavior- he’ll still go for it.
They do love their sex and that sex will be so amazing you might think he’s in love when, really, he’s just indulgent as all get out. If he’s pegged you for friends with benefits situation- you may have a hard time getting him out of that mindset!
Using your strengths as a Libra woman and his strengths as a Taurus man
This is actually such a nice match, though at times, a frustrating one! He is, more than likely, the most masculine you’ll find- easily the Earthiest, most strong, confident of the zodiac, in fact. He’s very much a man’s man, even if he’s more the “strong and sensitive” type.
You, on the other hand, as a Libra are quite feminine! The balance here is fairly obvious, it’s a good exchange, but not without its issue, that’s for sure!
He loves the fact that you’re very well balanced. And, believe it or not, whether you’re aware of this or not- there are likely a lot of women who give you the side eyeball whenever you are out and about: jealousy!
On the other hand, men probably check you out with admiration and these are a couple of things that if you don’t notice it: you can bet your Taurus man has! As long as no one puts a toe out of line, he’ll be thrilled because that possessive nature is soothed by “having” the very best- you.
Now, he can be a bit on the tricky side- he’s one of those “still waters run deep” types. You may find that about the only time you really provoke a response is when he’s being all bullheaded and stubborn- which can be really frustrating!
However, he actually feels the love on a very deep, almost intrinsic level. But, he may not be really forthcoming about it because it scares him a bit. You are perceptive enough that, of all the signs- you’re the one most likely to be able to tell what he’s thinking at times, if you put aside your insecurity about your relationship, that is!
Your shared ruling planet Venus will create a sense of strong attraction or a sort of deja vu where you feel you have always known your Taurus man. This magnetism will create an initial bond that will appear magical and enthralling. But, making this last could be problematic.
You both appreciate the arts and fine food and wine, so your courtship will start out like a fairy tale of old-fashioned love. You also both share a need for security and stability, but the Libran ideal is an intellectual concept, not an actual experience, and no relationship stands up to the amount of scrutiny that a fine Libra mind can subject it to.
Both Taurus man and Libra woman have a lot to teach each other. Bullish Taurus can benefit from the charm and grace that comes naturally to Libra. Libra tends to think more than act, and could learn how to be more demonstrative and decisive from her Taurus man.
That jealousy problem, though…
“He’s always wanting to know what I’m doing- all the time!” some exasperated Libra women say of their Taurus men.
“Nothing I do seems to help! I love him but his suspicion is really starting to get to me!”
I am addressing this because this is such a common issue with the Libra woman and Taurus man romance. Jealousy can be a problematic, stifling and damaging thing in any relationship. But, if you’re honestly not doing anything, it can also be incredibly hurtful unless you understand where it comes from.
Like most emotional issues, there is a tendency towards pointing the finger. Now, he cannot, nor should you allow him to blame you for his feelings. But, at the same time, since you’re together, his problems now become your problems and you can help him to overcome them.
Banish those jealousy issues for good with these 6 Taurus Jealousy Banishing Tips!
1. Understanding the insecurity at play
A little bit of jealousy is normal. And you probably feel it from time to time yourself. It can also, however, be a sign of a much deeper issue. This can either continue to be a problem that causes deep resentment or it can be an opportunity to come closer together. The choice, as it begins, is yours and then, his.
2. Figure out where this is coming from
You might, when he is a bit calmer, ask him questions about why he feels the way that he does. He’s probably not going to be too keen on opening up. But, as long as you are not defensive and rather, open to hearing him, you may find yourself surprised at what you learn!
You need to get at the heart of whatever it is he is afraid of and go from there. If the issues are relating to an ex or a prior hurt, but triggered by some of your harmless behaviors, you can work with that, too.
However, you may notice that even just getting him to open up about what insecurities he has can help a bit. Sometimes, it’s those things we just don’t confront that work behind the scenes and come out, one way or another.
3. TOTALLY open communication
This one can be a little hard for you as you prefer to be tactful and try to massage your words so that they don’t hurt anyone. You need to open the lines of communication and offer a safe harbor for him. Allow him the stability he needs to be vulnerable with you.
4. Give him the chance to heal
Often, Taurus men have been wounded either by their exes or even their mother. If you’ve got a Taurus who’s got a mother wound, this one’s tricky but not impossible.
If his exes or his mother were clinging, needy, or compulsive-, or if his prior relationships were filled with unfaithful behaviors, he may need to address that further. Allowing him to openly express the feelings he has about those things can help.
5. Build stability through trust and love
Make sure that you sit down with him and discuss your feelings with him, as well. Balance the talk about his insecurities with more positive, uplifting encouragement about how you feel for him.
Give him the reassurance that you want nothing more than to allow him to feel safe and secure with you. Affection and appreciation on a day to day basis tend to go a very long way towards helping ease the wounds of insecurity within a Taurus man.
6. Do not allow unhealthy behavior
Working towards a more healthy attachment is key in this. You can reassure him, you can spend quality one-on-one time with him, but never allow him to stifle or control you. Quality time, just the two of you and no distractions. Where you as a Libra woman just shine with a Taurus man.
Because the two of you both crave a great deal of balance and peaceful surroundings, you’ll both work hard to avoid the kind of tension build up seen in a lot of relationships.
However, at times, you may notice that he distances himself with his hobbies and otherwise that leaves you without someone to talk to. This is easy to get around, actually.
If that happens to you, first, ask yourself if what he’s asking for is unreasonable. If it’s not, well, then let go. It happens. However, if you find yourself consistently distanced from your Taurus man by this sort of thing- it’s time to make plans for more solid date night types of situations. You’ll find this helps you both feel more secure.
It won’t be all that hard for the two of you to have really deep conversations. You’re both pretty curious about one another, and there’s certainly chemistry! But, though you both want that sort of peaceful stability- you may often find it eludes you. Why does this happen?
Well, sometimes you enjoy splurging on things. And, while your Taurus man might appreciate this in terms of obtaining nice things, he may also have a big problem with the savings account dwindling. Be careful there!
This could make some serious arguments about money if the two of you don’t have an established set of ground rules for the shared finances. If he does get on you about your spending- you may want to take a step back before you react. Allow yourself a little time to be clear and direct with him and you’ll find you both figure out a happy medium there.
In The Bedroom
In the bedroom, you may find that things are weird. One day, you’ll be having this amazing, mind-blowing sex- he will be everything you ever wanted in a lover!
And then, it’s like he just shuts down, either a big dry spell occurs or the sex becomes somewhat boring. Neither of those things are all that great for you. You’d like to try some new things, you’d like to have some excitement and spice and sometimes, he provides that.
I wouldn’t whip out the handcuffs with this one, though. This may be a discussion you need to have outside of the bedroom, ahead of time. Tread VERY carefully about making changes to the sexual routine. All too often, the Taurus male will perceive this as an attack on his manhood: which can be really, really bad.
A very good way to approach things if you find yourself in either of those positions is to open the conversation casually and be sensitive to the way you approach it.
If your suggestions just seem more in line with spoiling each other, he’ll take them much, much better than pointing out the flaws in the sex department.
Of course, it can be a little difficult when you want to explore and try new things and he doesn’t. This is something that a lot of women, regardless of sign, deal with when they’re with a Taurus man.
If you’re not getting your sexual needs met, it’s important that you talk to him about this so that the two of you can get things on track- but how is also important.
1. Let him know you love what he already does
That’s right- start off on a high note. Talk about the things you enjoy doing with him already and how that makes you feel.
2. Baby steps
It really depends on what it is you want to try. But, taking little steps forward is usually the best approach. You’re not going to bust out a decked out dungeon and have this one respond well to it- that’s more Scorpio’s speed. Bu0,t you can try a little light bondage and go from there. (Or whatever- small toys, etc, just depends on what you want to try!)
Want to try new positions? Simply lead him in this a little at a time. Just a little push will do, and you’ll find things switch up nicely.
3. You absolutely MUST discuss this candidly first
Again, make sure you lead with praise for what he’s already doing. But, it’s important to not spring anything on him out of the blue. That will rattle a Taurus man to the point they may not even want to continue that encounter.
You may worry that this will be awkward. But it’s much less awkward than you think, for starters. And, it just might save your relationship if you’re feeling like that spark has fizzled.
Building Emotional Security With Your Taurus Man
I once had a Libra woman client, we’ll call her Sarah. And Sarah had been in a relationship with her boyfriend, a Taurus man we’ll call Pete for about 5 years. But, she was struggling with his possessive behaviors.
Because of his jealousy and insecurity, she had no idea, day to day whether he’d be the warm and caring partner she loved or this emotionally distant person who happened to live in the same house.
On the one hand, he would be the most understanding, patient man and just all out. The next, he’d be mostly silent, busying himself with things that distracted him (Watching tv, mostly).
And, if he did talk to her, he was judgmental and harsh to the point of being hurtful! He wasn’t abusive. But, the things he said really hurt on top of that emotional distance.
It was pretty clear that Pete needed to learn how to be a bit more emotionally secure. And Sarah needed to learn how to help bring that out in her Taurus man! It is possible. Here are a few tips for doing just that:
1. Always be true to your word and keep your promises
It doesn’t matter if it was an offhanded comment about you handling something. If you’ve said you’ll do it, do it. If you’ve said you won’t, then, don’t.
Should you make a mistake, forget or otherwise, this is a very human thing. Don’t beat yourself up but be sure you apologize sincerely and try not to repeat the behavior.
2. Even when things are bad, make sure he knows you are still there for him
If you slip up and say something you don’t mean to a Taurus man, they don’t forget it. It takes time to repair that damage. You can do it, but it’s really best to just avoid it in the first place. Learn to respond rather than react.
3. Make each other a priority
He will feel much more secure if he knows he comes first in your life. Of course, you will, too. If you both recognize that your needs are important because they’re the needs of someone who IS important to you, this helps a lot.
4. Clear, honest communication
You should both feel safe and able to openly express the things that you feel. Ask for what you need and want, but don’t worry you’re going to be judged for it by the other.
5. Be stable!
Back and forth plans, mood swings and indecisive behavior do not create a sense of stability. Again, don’t commit to things you don’t know you won’t be able to follow through. And, be honest about your emotions, but without turning it into a shouting match.
The main conflict between Taurus man and Libra woman is elemental. Taurus is a stubbornly fixed earth sign whereas Libra is an airy, cardinal sign that presides over changing seasons. The fresh air that Libra blows into a stable and predictable Taurus life can be seen as an unwelcome intrusion.
Similarly, the confines that Taurus seeks to impose will start to feel restrictive and oppressive to the high-minded Libra woman. Libra is even more of a perfectionist than Virgo, and you will always be aware of where things are less than ideal. This can rub your affectionate and less picky Taurus man the wrong way.
The insecurities and possessiveness of Taurus man may be the last straw for this relationship. He cannot see the way you’re flirting as harmless and you cannot stand the idea of jealousy.
If you try to understand where this behavior comes from you might actually get to see his tantrums as a compliment. You are likely to withhold the reassurance Taurus needs – on principle – and he won’t like that at all.
When you get icy your Taurus man gets hot and full of either lust or rage. This is great for a once-off affair. But, extending your initial attraction into a long-term partnership could be difficult. It’s not impossible, but prepare yourself for a compromise and hard work through some fairly difficult issues.
