Taurus and Leo: Compatibility in Sex, Love, and Friendship

Would it be a good love match between Taurus and Leo? Probably not. With this fire sign and this earth sign, both love and friendship might not be super strong. Could they try to make this work? Who knows…

Taurus and Leo Compatibility


The Taurus Zodiac

Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, beauty, money, and passion. When it comes to love and romance, Taurus is very grounded and patient. They won’t do grand gestures nor will they rush into relationships. It will also take a while for a Taurus to open up to their partner, but once they do, they are very devoted. They are good with money and also appreciate the finer things in life.

Taurus is symbolized by a bull with curving horns, and people under this sign are quite stubborn and determined. They are one of the most hardworking signs of the zodiac, representing patience, strength, and commitment. They aren’t the type to change their minds or be wishy-washy.

As a fixed sign, Taurus is incredibly… well, fixed. They are stubborn and determined people who deeply fear change. As an earth sign, Taurus wants to live comfortably in a stable, secure life, and also feels a sense of duty to take care of their friends and family.

Personality Traits of a Taurus

Taurus is a very determined, patient sign. At their worst, they can be annoyingly stubborn, but at their best, they are hard-working, optimistic, and dead set on their goals and dreams. They don’t like to be pushed out of their comfort zone, nor do they like change. Taurus is quite wise and practical, especially with money, but they won’t deprive themselves of something that would make them feel comfortable — even if it’s a luxurious item.

A Taurus man will be very strong, yet tender, especially in love. He has an emotional side he will only show if he trusts someone enough. He’s quite loyal and will expect his romantic partner to be loyal back. It might take a while for him to trust someone, but once he does, he is loyal through and through. A Taurus woman is very sensual and beautiful, inside and out. She likes for things to move slowly in the relationship because she’d rather do something right than do it quickly. In the bedroom, she wants to be seduced.

Taurus: Moon, Rising, and Venus Signs

In astrology, every person has a sign in the moon, rising, and Venus placements of their zodiac chart. Your moon represents your inner self, your rising is how people see you when they first meet you, and Venus represents love and beauty.

If your moon is in Taurus, you tend to invest in friendships and relationships that make you feel secure and comfortable. You are honest and reliable. You are often a creature of habit, narrow-minded, and quite stubborn about certain things and the way people make you feel at times.

If your rising is in Taurus, people see you as someone who is wise, determined, and practical. It will be quite hard for someone to change your mind on an issue– you are confident that you are right. You are hardworking and will do what you need to do in order to create a stable, comfortable life for yourself.

If your Venus is in Taurus, you enjoy comfort and pleasure, both physically (in the bedroom) and financially. You appreciate the finer things in life, especially if it makes you feel safe and secure, like going to the spa or buying a luxurious item. When it comes to love, you won’t rush into anything, but once you trust someone, you’re wholeheartedly committed.

The Leo Zodiac

Leo is ruled by the sun, the brightest star in our Solar System. Leos are known to be bold, bright, and often seeking attention. They have a pretty big ego and often think highly of themselves, always turning on the charm in social situations, so they can be the center of attention. Leo’s symbol is a lion, representing strength, bravery, passion, and rulings of the heart.

Leo is a fire sign, which means they are quite bright, passionate, enthusiastic, and warm. They are natural-born leaders, hungry for gratification, affection, and attention. They are naturally social creatures and entertainers at heart. As a fixed sign, Leo craves stability and security. They enjoy being in relationships and are overly proud of themselves and everything they’ve accomplished. At their worst, they can be inflexible and stubborn.

Personality Traits of a Leo

Leos tend to have huge egos that must be fed. They have a fiery personality: bold, energetic, bright, funny. They’re also very passionate and generous, and they take pride in that. At their worst, they can be a bit too arrogant, inflexible/stubborn, will put themselves first at times, and if they want to spend time with you, it’s because they actually want to.

A Leo man wants to be treated like a king. He likes gifts–giving and receiving–and wants a partner who is compatible with him and who looks good with him. He is quite charming and just might have a lot of suitors pining for him. However, if he likes you, he will be loyal, and once Leos commit, they will never stray. A Leo woman similarly likes the royal treatment; she wants to be valued as a queen, being the center of someone’s world. She will probably (try to) play the dominant role in the relationship or friendship.

Leo: Moon, Rising, and Venus Signs

In astrology, every person has a sign in the moon, rising, and Venus placements of their zodiac chart. Your moon represents your inner self, your rising is how people see you when they first meet you, and Venus represents love and beauty.

If your moon is in Leo, you are unexpectedly emotional. Although you enjoy being in the spotlight, you are more susceptible to being sensitive to criticism. You could also have a bad temper at times, so if you get carried away with your emotions, you won’t see any situation in a logical, unbiased way.

If your rising is in Leo, people find themselves drawn to you. You have this magnetic, energetic, attractive personality, and people will even notice right away that you enjoy being the center of attention. You’re charismatic and confident and very self-aware.

If your Venus is in Leo, you are quite passionate and romantic. You enjoy grand gestures and expressing your love in physical ways (like sex). Although you like security and stability and enjoy being in relationships, you are very charismatic and flirty and like for people to feed your ego.

Taurus and Leo Compatibility: Friendship

As friends, Leo and Taurus might have a hard time seeing eye-to-eye. Communication will be quite weak between these two, especially if they’re fighting. Taurus and Leo are fixed signs, and because of this fixed nature, they will hold their ground and stay on their side in fights, no matter if they’re right or wrong.

Taurus and Leo are both pretty emotional signs, but they express it differently. Leo wants gifts, grand gestures, and a lot of attention and affection, while Taurus wants a friend who has a reserved nature, who is warm, caring, and secure.

Taurus and Leo Compatibility: Sex and Love

A relationship between Taurus and Leo is one that should be avoided at all costs. Although they are incredibly different astrology signs, they are similar in their stubbornness, due to being two fixed signs. Taurus and Leo will find that, as a couple, they might face quite aggressive challenges. They will have a difficult time communicating, especially about their emotions and ideas. There’s an issue of pride in a Taurus Leo relationship, both signs being quite stubborn and wanting the best for themselves.

When it comes to what happens in the bedroom, both signs like being close to their partner. However, they still handle intimacy a bit differently. Taurus is more reserved and gentle, while Leo is more passionate and adventurous. Nonetheless, these two are very much in tune with their sensual, intimate sides. Independently, they make great lovers, but together, they might struggle to find a good balance.

Zodiac Compatibility With Taurus or Leo

Taurus Compatibility

If you are a Taurus, you will find that you match well with someone who’s willing to create a special bond as a family will be good for you. You want someone who is caring and understands that you can be stubborn at times, but it’s just because you want to reach your fullest potential in life. It’s in your nature to move at a slower pace, so you’ll want someone to understand how important that is for you in your relationships. You tend to stay away from a partner who isn’t dedicated to their family, who is a rule-breaker or is quite lazy.

Leo Compatibility

If you are a Leo, you will be compatible with someone who can praise you and feed your ego. You want someone with whom you can share a mutual appreciation for sex and bringing fire to the bedroom. You want to be in a relationship with someone who will give you the gifts, affection, and attention you’re looking for. You want someone who can match your enthusiasm and passion for life. You typically stay away from someone who is too bossy, too lazy, or too much of a perfectionist.

Taurus and Leo: Relationship Compatibility With Taurus or Leo

Taurus man + Leo woman

This kind of Taurus Leo couple could either be good or bad. Taurus is very devoted to developing a stable, secure bond with someone. Leo wants love and undivided attention. They can achieve sexual harmony once they are sure of each other’s intentions. They might often face frustrations, with her arrogance and his stubbornness, and if they want it to work, they have to be patient.

Taurus woman + Leo man

As you’ve read above, these two signs are quite different from each other. They will have a hard time seeing eye to eye, with his large ego and her willful nature. They could get along well in the bedroom but will have a hard time maintaining devotion in the relationship. Leo likes security and stability just as much as Taurus does, but they’re a lot more adventurous and flirty. He wants someone who can feed his ego, and she won’t like or understand that.

Taurus woman + Leo woman

These two might butt heads from time to time. Leo and Taurus want to stay in their own little worlds, and won’t succumb to merging or changing by any means. They won’t necessarily like to spend time together, and if they do, it won’t be for very long.

Leo man + Taurus man

Here we have an arrogant man who likes to be social, and a strong-willed man who likes to stay at home. Well, it’s not the strongest pair. They could find balance in the bedroom easily, but won’t communicate or understand one another and their differences well.
