Taurus man and Gemini woman? Don’t worry. You can make this work. Here’s how.
Taurus man and Gemini woman can find one another intriguing due to their completely different temperaments.
Taurus man is dependable, attached to his opinions and resistant to change. On the other hand, Gemini woman is restless, curious and somewhat flighty.
Can there be bliss between a Taurus man and a Gemini woman?
At first, Taurus man and Gemini woman was like a match made in heaven, wasn’t it, Gemini? He seemed to adore how open and flirty you were and the passionate spark was definitely there! He probably came across as being a very manly, very thoughtful partner or date and this was just an intoxicating blend, the two of you.
Typically, you’ll read how Gemini women and Taurus men aren’t compatible. But, you clearly saw a different story there at the start, didn’t you?
This is because, from the outset, this is actually one of the best matches in the zodiac- if the relationship is balanced! Problem is, in the beginning: it’s SO easy for both partners to get caught up in the passion and flirtation. But, when the honeymoon is over, it seems to tank quickly.
I’m going to be quite blunt with you, here. What starts out as a dream come true on both parts can quickly turn into a nightmare for both of you! It doesn’t have to be this way, though. If you’ve already come to a point of frustration: that does not have to continue.

So, let’s go further:
What is the deal with a Gemini woman?
Capricious and flirty Gemini is very imaginative and can be indecisive. He tends to take off on a momentary whim, which may wear down the legendary patience of a Taurus man. You are always convinced that the grass could be greener somewhere else, and find it hard to stick with anything.
Gemini is known for being an expert at everything but master of nothing, and your talkative, curious nature sees you able to talk to anyone. This makes the Taurus man, who wants to be the center of your attention, uncomfortable in the extreme.
When you experience intense feelings you are likely to joke about them. That is why people often get you wrong and think you are superficial, even shallow.
The truth is you long to be possessed, loved and adored. You can’t stand being rejected. But, anyone who tries to hold you down may experience one of your infamous black moods.
As a Gemini woman, you are creative, imaginative and intelligent. These are all things a Taurus man really values, and when you’re feeling flirty, he never has to guess how you feel. However, one swift mood swing and he gets perplexed, which may be incredibly confusing to you.
In the past, you have likely had men who chased you with a passion when you went distant.
The Taurus man does not play like that. Whether you meant to use an old tried and true method for getting a fella to take the first move intentionally or you just needed a little space: the end result is the same.
He probably got confused, intimidated, and scared- so, he distanced himself or even just outright vanished!
Taurus man Gemini woman: the problem of great expectations
One of the problems here is that you’re both expecting that the other is going to behave as you do. That he thinks like you, or that you think like him. That he’ll do what you would do. Or that what he IS or is not doing, means the same thing it does to you. It probably doesn’t.
You probably felt like he should sweep you off your feet. That is why you backed off, hoping that would entice him further. He likely saw this as distance and either he thought, “Well, she needs her space.” and gave it to you- or, he thinks you just aren’t into him: each and every time you do that.
Whereas you may feel that impulsive behaviors are romantic and brave- he may be very uncomfortable with them. If you engaged in them, he may have freaked out and backed off, feeling pushed.
If you expected them from him…well, this is one of those areas where you will likely not get that particular expectation met- because this is not how he rolls at all.
So why is he like that and what can you do to get your Taurus man to do what you want?
Let’s start with the basics. First, understand him – but don’t try to understand him like you do, yourself. Because the only way we can make opposites TRULY attract is in understanding each other and finding that balance, first.
The set up: you ’ve got a Taurus man’s attention or you want to get his attention. As a Gemini woman, getting attention usually isn’t a problem for you at all.
Odds are, you most likely understand by now that he’s one of those people that really love the finer things in life. However, he also appears to stubbornly resist any kind of changes that could actually make obtaining those things- including a relationship with you, possible.
You might be wondering what on earth is the problem because this appears completely counter-intuitive. Worse, just when you think you’ve things going along easily, he has gone totally cold, just as you think it might be time to take the next step.
For you, this is actually a bit less frustrating than other signs- because the thrill of not knowing is a big thing for you and taking bold risks is second nature. The problem is, it isn’t for him. If he isn’t sure, he won’t risk it.
If you have been dating him for a bit, you most likely already understand this. The Taurus Man loves his consistency and it can be a little on the boring side.
Will he EVER try something new? Even just getting him to try a new place to eat may seem like pulling teeth. But, once you open the door and show him how good things are, he’ll come around.
A Taurus man will find his Gemini lover a lively and stimulating companion. But, where he is sensual and tactile, you have a more detached and intellectual approach to love.
Your flirtatious nature and changeable mind are likely to drive him crazy after a while. Beware of his possessive and insecure side, because you’ll see his dark side if he’s provoked.
If you want to keep a Taurus man at your side you need to constantly reassure him and pamper him with gestures, affection, and gifts.
Taurus man will go without soap and toilet paper to have the fragrance he loves, so bear that in mind. Synthetic fabrics and bargains won’t turn him on, but a simple pure wool scarf that costs more than a meal will make him smile for a week.
The Top 5 Taurus Turn Offs, Watch Out, Gemini girl
I go into this in much more detail in my book but, I also want to mention this again here- because this is key in understanding the answer to “What happened?!”
1) Being way, way too aggressive
Yes, he wants to know how you feel. But, if he’s gone quiet and you’re still trying to get him to talk, then you’re pushing and he will simply walk away. Just allow him some time. Understand that if he’s distant, he doesn’t necessarily want to be distant for good. But if you push, you might make it permanent.
2) Not being forward enough
While he won’t respond well to pushing- making it very clear what you want is always a must with a Taurus. Practice those so-called “feminine wiles” and charm him into it. Nobody does this better than a Gemini! The key is- he must know before he’ll move on anything.
3) Confusing him inadvertently
Back and forth mood swings are hard enough for a Taurus man. But oh, those things you say in the heat of the moment will bite you right in the butt with these men! Always be careful the things you say and do are things you mean. If you cannot be consistent in the feeling, you can make sure you’re not sending the wrong signals out of anger or hurt.
4) Deliberate head games
Though he doesn’t actually play them himself- he’s very keenly aware when someone is trying to do this to him and may react swiftly and in a very cold manner. If you have made this mistake- we can fix it, so read on!
And actually, it’s his insecurity, not yours, which will put him off. If you show your vulnerable and soft side: he’ll likely find that irresistible. BUT if he thinks you feel like he is stupid or if you come across like you think you are better than he is- this may be an ego wound he has a hard time dealing with.
So, either you’ve done those things, or you haven’t done them at all and are starting to feel lost and hopeless because…what more can you do?
Understand him further, that’s what! The more you recognize, honor and respect your differences, the less likely you are to project your own meaning on his behavior and the more easily you can get him to do what you want.
A Taurus man is afraid of changes
As a Gemini woman, you have no problems changing up bad situations. That’s not to say your relationship is a bad situation, but this is to illustrate just how deeply embedded he gets in “the same”.
A Taurus man may well just stick around in the worst relationship or situation imaginable- purely due to being MORE afraid of what he doesn’t know! Perplexing, isn’t it? Complacency is a huge issue with these men- and it’s worse when they’re stressed out.
If you looked at the Top 5 Taurus Turn Offs but if you haven’t done any of those things: you might be just as frustrated and confused as if you did. How in the world can someone who seems to be SO consistent seem so confusing? It’s simple: when a Taurus is stressed out, he’s scared and when he’s scared, he shuts down.
Understand that if you’ve done everything “the right way” and your Taurus has vanished or gone distant it may well be a case of All or Nothing. When one thing is stressful in his life or unstable, he may shut down on everything.
When his ego is under attack at work or otherwise- that may sort of bleed over into his confidence levels in other areas, causing him to distance, quickly. This isn’t your fault at all! There are things you can do to work with that rather than push and possibly lose him for good.
Another important thing to remember is: Taurus doesn’t really make first moves. So, think about it this way, especially as a Gemini woman: you might change your mind a lot.
You might change your mood or even to others, seem to change your personality. So, to your Taurus male, it’s almost like every day is another “first move” day. What appears to be uncaring behavior or distance may just also be “What do I DO NOW?!” on his part.
Part of the problem, particularly with Gemini is, well, you may not be nearly as keen on rules or structure as he is. You enjoy a bit of a thrill every now and again. He does and he doesn’t.
On the one hand, the biggest strength this relationship has is that you can help him be more open to new things. In return, he can help more or less level things, bringing about a stability and sense of home to you.
Even if you’ve only been on one date- you may have noticed, something about him just feels like “home”. It just feels comfortable.
Thing is, comfortable isn’t really your thing. If you’re honest with yourself- you do need the occasional thrill here and there, but he’s not inclined towards giving it. So, how can you get him to play a bit, experiment and even live a little?
You have to create as much consistency as you can to make up for the areas you either can’t or don’t want to. If he doesn’t know how to feel about you- because you seem to change how you feel every few minutes: this can be a big problem.
It is, however, one that communication ahead of time will head off without you having to really change a thing about how you feel- or act on those feelings.
So, how should you deal with a Taurus man?
The kicker here is that for a Taurus, forewarned is forearmed. It’s just the not knowing that will truly get to him. So, use that powerful tool to your advantage. Never distance yourself to play a game you won’t win- but, when you need space, let him know and let him know it isn’t about him before you do.
When you want to change things up, don’t do it without letting him know. This doesn’t mean, of course, you need his permission- but, you will find that if you let him know ahead of time that you plan to step out of the box a bit: he won’t be as inclined to freak out and distance himself.
You may also let him know what benefits are to be had in whatever the change is. For example, you’re sick of going to the same restaurant on every date? Talk up the delicious food or ambiance at the place you want to try- and you’ll probably end up there.
What about those mood swings?
You likely know all the crummy stereotypes about your sign, right? It’s my sign, as well, so, believe me, I know! Often, what appears to be one thing to others, is another matter entirely for us, right? It’s the same with the Taurus man. He can seem to be just as cold as ice at times or even, totally emotionless!
The fact is, he’s actually incredibly deep, emotionally. They simply have a hard time showing it- and the reason they do lies in the traditionalist attitudes they have. Even if your Taurus openly decries the “typical male” stereotypes- within him is a desire to be that “manly man”.
You may have seen bits and piece of that, as well. But, the truth is: he’s such a gentle, soft soul. It’s often hard for him to trust in even his own emotions to move as quickly as you might.
You may not know this, but astrology comprises SO much more than only the zodiac signs. Perhaps you’ve heard about moon signs or Ascendant signs, but are you aware that each planetary influence will play out in his chart and yours, differently? In addition to that, you get into compatibility between your charts- there’s a whole new frontier to check out!
Use your strengths to have that Taurus man eating out of the palm of your hand
You may often feel as though this is a huge case of opposites attracting- and you’d be right. On basic levels, the two of you really just do not have much in common.
He wants to think about things, to plan, to take his time- and you, well, you’re quick thinking and you tend to be a bit more spontaneous about things.
When he wants something close-knit, you may want your space. And when he wants his space, that may be when you want the commitment!
It can seem quite baffling, I know. In friendships, this dynamic works out swimmingly- but, in romance…we all know things are very, very different!
You are a talker. A communicator. You express yourself very well- Mercury, the planet of communication happens to be your ruling planet.
It stands to reason you will need to be the one who takes those steps then: and you need to do so in a way that is clear, open, and more than that- consistent. This is where you may have a bit of a hiccup, Gemini!
Another thing- you might have already noticed the Taurus man’s brooding jealousy issue- which doesn’t go all that well with the naturally flirty nature of a Gemini woman.
You’re going to have to get him to understand that you’re not really meaning anything by it: this is just who you are.
That’s important but there’s also a way that you can get him to feel much more secure and trusting of you as you go. This won’t be that easy for you, but it will be worth it.
Meet his pace!
Because Taurus men like to take things very slow, I cannot tell you how many Gemini women I have met who felt like a man wasn’t into her. But, in fact, he was more emotionally invested than anyone else she’d ever been with!
When a Taurus guy takes it slow- he’s taking it slow because he knows that for him, building that stable foundation of trust is everything.
You can make a very happy committed couple if you both stay aware of how you need to change. The Taurus man is a homebody who can make your domestic life comfortable, while you are a social butterfly who adds some zing to his life.
At first, the sparky intellectual exchange between you will attract you. But, you’ll have to work to keep that flame alive. You both have high aesthetic standards, and take great joy in things of beauty. So, you are likely to share a love of art, although your individual taste may be quite different and subject to heated debate.
The Taurus man will find your self-confidence a huge turn-on. If he gives you enough freedom, you will balance each other in positive ways. The bull can help to ground you and give your life a sense of purpose, which you sorely lack. You can help him lighten up and explore new experiences, while he will add a practical dimension to some of your brilliant ideas.
Your naturally flirtatious nature is a red flag to the bull, who has a low tolerance for anything that disturbs his security. You don’t want to give the Taurus man any reason to nurture a grudge, as he finds it hard to forgive, despite his appearance as the serene, calm face of reason.
You are likely to have many disagreements and you will approach conflict in very different ways. Where you are likely to jump from one subject to another without warning, the Taurus man has a methodical, slower way of thinking and will constantly demand that you stay on course. You may find that very irritating indeed and he may retreat into a petulant sulk.
You, as a Gemini are ruled by the element Air whereas, well, he’s ruled by Earth. His sign is Fixed, yours is Mutable. What this means is- you tend to adapt to change so much better than he does.
But, on the other hand, he lends so much stability and warmth to you. You can feel like you’ve found a home! There are upshots to being so very different. It’s important to understand that your differences can be your greatest assets!
He may not really understand your attitudes at times. It may confuse him to the point that he’s anxiously awaiting whatever surprise or shock you’ve got in store for him.
He may act suspicious and mean, or just distant because of this, which doesn’t really thrill you much either. In addition, his possessive nature can sometimes be a bit of a buzzkill for you. Because at heart, freedom is everything to you. The key then is going to be in that communication factor. Be clear, take your time and enjoy the process.
NOBODY, and believe me when I say this- not one other sign in the zodiac makes slow as pleasurable as a Taurus man can at times.
Sure, the waiting on the emotional part can be hard, but in the bedroom? Oh, that slowness isn’t something you don’t appreciate, that’s for sure.
Understand that in everything in his life, he takes it slow. He makes sure he’s doing it the right way and you’ll go a long way in demystifying this baffling man.

My #1 Tip for A Gemini Woman who loves a Taurus Man
Not a lot of people realize this but Gemini and Taurus are consecutive. Meaning, well, it goes Taurus, then Gemini in the zodiac.
This means that the odds are actually pretty good that you’ll also share Venus signs (planetary influence to how you love, what you love, and what challenges you face) and Mercury Signs (how you communicate). If you do, or if they’re close, you’ll find you have a much easier way of it.
Of course, you are very different but as I mentioned above- this can be a big asset. You actually have a much stronger chance of understanding one another if you, the Gemini woman- slow down and better understand the Taurus man.
He may not express himself as openly as you do. But, he does express himself and often, it’s just not in words. Pay attention to what he is doing- and you’ll see a lot of insight into what he’s feeling.
What a lot of people don’t know about Taurus men is- they’re dreamers. Granted, yes, once you get them going, they can be doers of the most tenacious sort. But, often, they get caught up in ruminating about what they want or dream of.
You don’t generally have that problem because you enjoy chasing dreams and making them a reality! Helping him to be more adaptable takes some patience and finesse.
But, if you take the time to ask clear and probing question and if you listen to his answers and weigh them against his actions, you’ll figure him out much faster than perhaps you imagine.
If you take things a step further and live together- or if you’re just wondering how on earth that would ever work out: believe it or not, once you get to that step, you two can be pretty amazing for one another.
You are able to help him to help him get out there and meet new people while at the same time making sure your home’s in order- and there’s not a lot he loves more than that.
You can also, and you should encourage him to chase after those dreams. Sometimes, a gentle kick in the butt helps and he will respect the way you love and encourage him in that.
The key is always understanding! Understanding is where you work towards helping yourself deploy the patience for the long-game that Taurus requires.
Once you have that down, you can work with your own innate communication skills. You can build trust, open him up, and get things where you want them to be. Have faith! It’s more likely than you perhaps sometimes think.
I truly hope some of this advice will prove useful to you as a Taurus man Gemini woman couple. But you might have more questions about your relationship…
