When it comes to compatibility, some zodiac signs have a relatively short list of potential celestial soulmates. Taurus, on the other hand, does not have that problem.

The earth sign is one of the most amiable members of the zodiac, says author and astrologer, Bethany Nicole. “They tend to pair well with others in general,” she tells PEOPLE. Of course, there are certain signs they’re naturally more compatible with, but they can get along with almost anyone.

Taurus is represented by the bull, a symbol of strength and fertility, and is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty. According to Kyle Thomas, PEOPLE’s resident celebrity astrologer, their ruling planet explains a lot. Taureans are “deeply sensual and romantic,” he says, and they tend to invest a great deal into their relationships.

“They are the most reliable zodiac sign and also the most loyal,” Thomas explains. “When they give their heart, they want it to last forever.”

As we head into Taurus season — which usually runs from April 20 to May 20 but starts on April 19 to May 20 in 2024 — learn more about Taurus’ compatibility with other zodiac signs.

What are the key traits of Taurus?

As a fixed earth sign, Taurus exemplifies dependability and patience. They are known for being calm, down-to-earth and reliable but can often be labeled as stubborn.

Like most earth signs, Taurus is hardworking and practical. However, since they are ruled by Venus, Taureans also love luxury and pleasure.

“They enjoy the finer things in life and are attracted to the full exploration of the senses,” Thomas says.

Those with a Taurus sun sign are often passionate and affectionate but aren’t reckless. More than anything else, they crave security, Thomas explains. “They are romantics who seek long-term love and pleasant relationships.”

Unlike zodiac signs that strive for intensity and excitement in love, Taureans long for relationships based on stability and loyalty.

“Taurus loves comfort. They aren’t interested in a lot of drama,” Nicole explains, adding that they prefer “simple, peaceful relationships” instead.

Which signs are most compatible with Taurus?

According to Thomas, Taureans generally work best with water signs (Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio) and fellow earth signs (Virgo and Capricorn).

“Earth signs share similar traits, such as stamina, practicality, work ethic, a focus on the material world and loyalty,” he says.

Water and earth signs are equally promising as the two elements often balance each other out.

Every member of the zodiac family has what’s called a “soulmate sign,” and for Taurus, that’s Cancer.

Taurus and Cancer are sextile, which means they are two signs apart from each other. Astrologically speaking, sextile signs are highly compatible and can form an easy, harmonious relationship.

“This is one of the best matches in the zodiac and often aligns with a soulmate vibration,” says Thomas.

Taurus and Cancer are both romantic signs that share similar priorities in life. Cancers value comfort, home life, family and loyalty. Like Taurus, the water sign prefers calm, stable relationships over intense ones.

Because of this, these two “have a deep domestic and emotional bond,” Thomas explains.

Barbra Streisand and James Brolin are the perfect example of a Taurus-Cancer connection. The pair first met in 1996 after being set up on a blind date. In 2023, they celebrated 25 years of marriage.

Like Cancer, Pisces is another water sign that craves comfort, stability and intimacy. While they’re less grounded than Cancer, they have a deep appreciation for beauty, which Taurus will find appealing.

“This is a fun pairing,” Nicole says. “Both are romantic, loyal and creative [and] can really create something special together.”

They also have a common connection to Venus, which is exalted in Pisces. This means that even though Venus isn’t the planetary ruler, it has a powerful influence.

According to Thomas, the shared connection makes Taurus and Pisces “one of the best zodiac matches.”

While dreamy Pisces is a head-in-the-clouds type, Taurus provides a sense of stability and pragmatism that can help bring them back down to Earth. Still, "Pisces will bring a sense of magic, fantasy, intimacy and romance to the pair," he says.

Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem are proof of a lasting Taurus-Pisces love. The Hollywood power couple have been married since 2010 and share two children.

As a fellow earth sign, Virgo is an easy match for Taurus. With plenty of common ground, these two signs mesh well. “This is a highly productive and peaceful connection,” Thomas says.

While water signs can help Taurus get in touch with their emotions, earth signs like Virgo will bring out more of their practical side.

Virgos are often known for being perfectionists, while Taureans are recognized for their love of luxury. Because of this combination, a Taurus-Virgo relationship can be compared to “a well-manicured, beautiful Venetian Garden,” says Nicole.

While they find joy in material items, they are still determined and hardworking. Together, they can create a life where “all kinds of things can grow and blossom.”

Dwayne Johnson and Lauren Hashian are a good example of this compatibility. After dating for 12 years, the couple quietly married in 2019 and share two daughters together.

Stoic earth sign Capricorn is another strong partner for Taurus.

Capricorn is one of the most responsible, ambitious and hardworking signs in the zodiac, which Taurus will admire. They’re both incredibly dependable, stable and practical. Additionally, they share a love of the finer things in life.

Together, these two make for a “power couple match,” says Thomas. They understand and support each other, but more than that, they will inspire themselves to "build professional and financial success.”

Gigi Hadid, a Taurus, and Bradley Cooper, a Capricorn, demonstrate this kind of pairing. The two have been romantically linked since October 2023.

Those with the same zodiac sign are often compatible, but according to Thomas, a Taurus-Taurus pairing is “one of the best same-sign matches in the zodiac.”

Not only will the relationship be romantic and sensual, but there will also be a shared sense of understanding between them.

“They value the same things,” he explains. “As long as they’re on the same mission, they can journey forward well together.”

However, it’s worth noting that Taurus is known for being stubborn, which can create conflict.

Which signs are least compatible with Taurus?

Taurus is generally compatible with most of the other signs in the zodiac. However, some may be more challenging for them.

They tend to struggle most with fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) and air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius).

Earth signs are known for being practical, grounded and calm. Fire and air signs, on the other hand, “tend to be more spontaneous, impulsive and aggressive,” says Thomas.

These opposite personalities can create frustration and conflict in a relationship.

Fiery Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet of war and action, whereas Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and harmony. Unsurprisingly, these two can find it hard to relate.

“They just have differing values, goals and needs,” says Nicole.

Aries craves a relationship filled with energy, passion and competition. Since Taurus prefers a calm, stable partnership, Aries might be too much for them.

Interestingly, these two can make for great friends, but “they can clash” when it comes to romance. “When there is no ability to create space between them, that’s where friction usually begins,” she explains.

Geminis are known for being flighty and spontaneous, which doesn’t usually sit well with stability-loving Taurus.

“While Gemini's quick wit, charm, and flirtatious nature can initially magnetize Taurus, as far as long-term goals, the two do not really align,” Nicole says.

Taurus craves calm domesticity, whereas Gemini longs for movement and adventure.

“They might enjoy a passionate albeit brief love affair, but eventually, they usually go their separate ways," she adds.


<p>Chloe Jeong/PEOPLE</p> Aquarius and Taurus.

As two fixed signs, Aquarius and Taurus can easily butt heads.

“The two hold different values, motivations, energies and lifestyles,” Nicole explains.

Aquarius is a quirky, innovative air sign that marches to the beat of its own drum. Since they aren’t particularly practical or affectionate, they typically can’t “provide the grounding or emotion that Taurus needs.”

Still, Thomas says that any two signs can make a relationship work, but for Aquarius and Taurus, “there will need to be a consistent amount of cooperation and adjustment.”

What is Taurus’ compatibility with other signs?

Scorpio and Taurus.

Scorpio and Taurus are astrological opposites, meaning they sit opposite each other on the zodiac wheel. As such, they can either be great together or terrible.

“This pairing is one of the most hotly debated in the zodiac world,” Nicole says.

Thomas agrees, elaborating, “They can be a perfect match or end up as mortal enemies. When aligned, they can aid one another in achieving everything, but if they are to clash, it can quickly become very challenging.”


<p>Chloe Jeong/PEOPLE</p> Sagittarius and Taurus.

Sagittarius is an impulsive, free-spirited fire sign, whereas Taurus is a calm, reliable earth sign. Despite this, they can find some common ground.

“Both harbor a deep connection to the earth and creative pursuits,” Nicole says.

If they can strike a balance between their differing needs, they can make a sweet pairing. Sagittarius will bring a sense of spontaneity and passion, while Taurus will help keep them organized and grounded.


<p>Chloe Jeong/PEOPLE</p> Libra and Taurus.

Although Taurus tends to struggle more with air signs, Libra is an exception.

“As they are both ruled by Venus, this can be a very charming match,” says Thomas.

Both seek pleasure and romance, enjoying the finer things in life, but Libras are usually more outgoing and spontaneous, while Taureans prefers to stay at home.

He adds, “The key to making this work, then, is to find a middle ground [in] their social lives."
