A Scorpio – Taurus pairing is basically a clash of paradigms. The Scorpion lives in a world of deeply suppressed passion and mysticism while the Bull’s world consists of cold logic and materialism. The similarities between these two only serve to exacerbate their propensity to clash. While Scorpio and Taurus can find things to admire in one another, both would have to change considerably to make a romantic attachment work.
The quiet Bull goes about its business with perfect composure and steady intent. Taurus is so very self-contained that little touches it deeply. The great dignity of the Bull precludes any unseemly excess of emotion which can make Taurus seem quite cold. While the Bull certainly is aloof on the surface, Taurus is quite capable of becoming an affectionate and considerate partner for the right person.
Taurus has a very strict moral code and a high level of integrity both in its business dealings and in love and the Bull fully expects to have its uprightness matched by its romantic partner. Any type of infidelity simply isn’t acceptable to fastidious Taurus. Since emotion plays such a small role in the life of the Bull, Taurus is quite logical in its choice of a partner and will carefully screen any potential mate before committing.
The Scorpion is the Master of Darkness of the Zodiac. Scorpio holds deep within it every condition of mankind – both light and dark. The Scorpion doesn’t turn away from the blackness that others choose to ignore, instead, it accepts the dark as a necessary part of the world. This willingness to look makes Scorpio’s interests, such as the study of serial killers and abnormal psychology, seem quite morbid to those dedicated to the light. The Scorpion makes an excellent psychologist or murder mystery writer.
Scorpio contains a great ocean of passion and devotion. However, the Scorpion locks this carefully in the depths of its being where only commitment and trust can release them. Many find the understated charm and palpable aura of power that surrounds Scorpio quite irresistible, for it hints at the treasures the Scorpion hides. This is a fool’s errand unless Scorpio is ready to commit, for unless the Scorpion is open to its lover, it gives nothing but heartbreak.
It is pure power that first attracts the Bull to the Scorpion. Both Scorpio and Taurus wear their authority effortlessly with great control and ease. The Scorpion senses in the stoic Bull someone who can handle the full scope of its emotional range without damage. The usually reserved Bull is a prodigious flirt when aroused and Scorpio is attracted by the wit and sharp mind this reveals. Taurus greatly admires Scorpio’s perseverance and control. Each respects the other’s drive and career success, seeing a partner that can be of great help in its own path.
The Bull and the Scorpion are both ambitious and driven when in pursuit of anything, whether it be a career goal or a potential mate. The Bull and the Scorpion are committed to reaching the very top echelon in their respective career fields and Scorpio and Taurus highly respect these traits in others. The partners appreciate a potential mate that can act as a sounding board and cheerleader on its own climb to greatness. Neither the Bull nor the Scorpion are dependent on constant care and coddling, a definite advantage for this driven pair.
Both the Bull and the Scorpion are quite happy in a comfortable domestic environment. Taurus will create a tasteful comfortable nest for itself and likes nothing better than to relax and enjoy the fruits of its labors. Scorpio will be happy to join its Taurus mate for many hours of philosophical discussions and much lovemaking. This pair is very well matched in the area of sensuality and together they will explore a full range of physical sensations.
The very strength that first attracted Scorpio and Taurus is the trait that is most likely to tear them apart. Neither the Bull nor the Scorpion is going to back down in an argument. No matter whether Scorpio displays molten rage or icy silence, the Bull will simply remain impassive and immovable. Both Taurus and the Scorpion have long memories and let nothing go, so old grievances will continue to pile up throughout the relationship, to be brought out and revived for each new argument. In these circumstances, it is nearly impossible for this pair to resolve any issue, large or small.
While the Bull’s impassiveness can be considered an advantage in the Taurus – Scorpio pairing since Taurus is unlikely to be damaged by the Scorpion’s passion, it also means that the relationship is missing the deep emotional connection Scorpio needs to truly open up to its partner. Without this, the Scorpion never accesses the care and devotion within it and the relationship remains shallow and almost business like. Thus, neither partner actually grows since the Bull cannot explore emotions without injury and Scorpio is incapable of exposing its softer side.
Both Scorpio and Taurus are very loyal to their chosen mate. While the Scorpion gives this level of devotion only once it has given its full trust, it is the Bull’s deep sense of integrity that results in its fidelity. Although Scorpio admires this uprightness, it doesn’t share it. The Scorpion can be secretive and deceitful, a serious infraction in the Bull’s rigid moral code. Taurus considers honesty non-negotiable and will not tolerate any deviation
Scorpio and Taurus simply aren’t well equipped to be happy together. While superficial differences can strengthen and add spice to a relationship, this pair are at odds to their very cores. The detached Bull finds the passion of the Scorpion a hindrance to its happiness, while Scorpio finds it impossible to access its gentle side in the face of the Bull’s impassiveness. Scorpio and Taurus do not share the same sense of integrity and honor. While this pair can help one another admirably in the professional realm and would make great business partners, to make a happy couple each would need to change to the very center of its being.
