Fiery Leo Moon brings out the possessiveness in Earthy Taurus Moon. Taurus is like the fertile soil of the earth, but fiery Leo is like a fire burning in the hearth. Fire turns Earth into ashes, but Earth smothers fire. Sure, there is an initial attraction. Leo Moon walks in a room and commands attention. Taurus Moon wants to possess Leo Moon. However, the initial attraction turns into a competition. Leo Moon may be flattered by Taurus Moon's gifts and attention, but Taurus Moon fully expects to be flattered back. Leo Moon thinks Taurus Moon should be flattered that Leo Moon is even paying attention to Taurus Moon. Taurus Moon, on the other hand, really believes it has bought Leo Moon's affections.
They look good together. They look damned good. The problem is that they each want to be the best-looking. Taurus Moon is classy; Leo Moon is attention-seeking. The fights start when they try to change each other. Taurus Moon thinks Leo Moon should bring it down a notch. Leo Moon thinks Taurus Moon's taste is too bourgeois. They are both hurt but neither will give in; in fact, they will become more garish or more bourgeois just to prove a point. Then, the death nail is driven: one says that it is embarrassed to be seen with the other.
If these two actually make it to marriage, it will be because Taurus Moon gave Leo Moon a big ring, and Leo Moon wants to throw a huge party. It is also possible that despite everything, they get married because they have a child together. Leo Moon loves the idea of being the best parent possible, and that idea may include being married to the child's other parent. Taurus Moon may see this as a sensible option for the sake of the little person who has half its DNA. Better to marry the other parent than pay child support or take away stability by making the child live in two different homes.
In that case, both will do what they think is best for the child, and they may keep the peace by being co-parents instead of lovers. The problem is that Leo Moon is not a fire that can be contained, and Taurus Moon cannot sacrifice without reward for too long.
If this couple stays together, it is probably because of a pre-arrangement like having a child together. However, this may not be enough. Leo Moon wants to shine like the Sun, and Taurus Moon wants to relax in the shade. While neither one is particularly ambitious, Leo Moon's need to be seen is hampered by Taurus Moon's need to acquire. While there may be some reward in being the spouse of a financially successful person, Leo Moon wants admiration for who they are, not who they are in relation to someone else.
And surprisingly, they can stubbornly stay in their roles for a long time. Reality sets in later for these two. At first, they bicker. Then, they fight. Now, no one knows there is problem. They look amazing on social media. They never let on that there is a growing tension. Everyone is surprised when they do actually break up and go their separate ways.
And strangely enough, this is when the two of them really begin to come into their own. Leo Moon begins to shine with its own fire, and Taurus Moon focuses on its fortune without worrying about someone spending all the money (Leo Moon tends to spend freely. Taurus Moon tends to save).
Leo Moon puts on a performance in the bedroom. They want to have sex to know that they are good at sex and are a desirable lover. Like other fire signs, this sign likes sex for the sake of it. Taurus Moon, on the other hand, loves sex. It is highly sensual and enjoys having all of its senses filled to the hilt through sex. Leo Moon will do its best to impress and can please Taurus Moon. Taurus Moon demonstrates the enthusiasm that Leo Moon needs to see. It can start off amazingly.
And that is about where it ends. After a while, Taurus Moon doesn't get the same satisfaction focusing on trying to please Leo Moon, and Leo Moon doesn't want to focus on pleasing Taurus Moon either. These two stubborn moons won't change to please the other, and the temptation to cheat rises.
This Moon combination has a high propensity for sexual infidelity, unless the two of them try swinging or an open relationship, but it would take other astrological factors to make either of these two Moons open to sharing their lovers.
The best way to make this work is to come into the relationship with zero expectations. This is easier said that done, because both of these Moons come into relationships expecting to get anything they want. Taurus Moon buys what it wants, and Leo Moon just expects to be worshipped for projecting awesomeness. So, it actually would work for the two of them to start at as nothing serious.
They shine when there are no expectations. There is no need to invest in the other, and therefore, no need to expect a lot from each other. There is also a constant, low-level need to impress each other, which motivates them to be on their best behavior. Commitment, on the other hand, releases the beasts, and when the lion and the bull go at each other, they go for the jugular.
