Taurus and Cancer Compatibility: Love, Sex & Relationships…
Here’s a couple who love love in a gentile, old-world kind of fashion – think chivalry and saving damsels in distress and you’ve got a snapshot of a Taurus/Cancer romance. They work hard at a relationship – sometimes well past the used-by date – but are willing to ride the ebbs and flows, lows, highs and lows for security and a life of warm memories together.
Perhaps you could call them the Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward or John Legend and Chrissy Teigen of the zodiac – these signs are the ones that would shock you if they broke up.[adinserter block=”3″] [adinserter block=”4″] [adinserter block=”11″]
Decoding Taurus and Cancer friendships…
Taurus/Cancer hold their cards close to their chest – it may take a heroic act like saving kittens from a burning house that creates a lightbulb moment and fast tracks nodding acquaintances into the friendship zone – each have small, tightknit friendship groups and only truly worthy newbies are allowed offered membership.
Both are fundamentally honest signs – Taurus tells Cancer when they are wallowing too much in sentimentality and heartbreak – Cancer tends to drag Taurus of their procrastination couch and gets them back into the gym.
Fundamentally they are there for each other however Taurus must watch their insensitivity and Cancer needs to lighten up on how good things were in the old days. Knowing just what to say and when to say it is the basis for a beautiful Taurus/Cancer friendship.
First signs of attraction & compatibility…
Taurus have their emotions tightly guarded and can build a fortress around them. Attraction takes time and Cancer has to work hard at creating chinks in the Bulls armor. The crab may spill their whole life story in an attempt to melt Taurus reserve – this is a bad move no one wants to date a wet blanket.
Healthy attraction probably best happens when Cancer is dissolving a relationship that ended up platonic and Taurus is happily carefree – they’ll both be in good mindsets.
Attraction begins with new spring in each signs’ step – Cancer invests in a makeover (not too radical though) and Taurus bins the potato crisps and starts hitting the gym. Preening, staring into each other’s eyes and considerate gestures like flicking lint from jackets are signs of attraction.
The Cancer and Taurus in relationships…
Water sign (Cancer) brings a depth of feelings to the relationship that earth sign (Taurus) never thought possible – that’s the nature of water – dark flowing and intense. Earth Signs are emotional but more practical and because of this the Bull stops Cancer sinking into an emotional cesspit and provides solid ground to build a future on.
They usually appear comfortable and attentive together – making chicken soup when one is sick, opening car doors and celebrating anniversaries like “two and a half weeks since we first watched Marley and Me together”. Taurus thinks the sentimentality a bit twee but secretly loves that Cancer is so into them. They quickly look like a couple who are going to last the distance to friends and family.
Where they may encounter turbulence…
Cancer can talk about feelings until the cows come home which emotionally drains Taurus who starts to feel sick every time they hear the words “We need to talk”. The crab must stop sweating the small things and wisely pick their battles with Taurus or risk complete shutdown. Taurus needs to open up more and use words to express their feelings.
Cancer has been guilty of nagging their partners in the past and in Taurus’ case laziness and procrastination often get a big dumping of patronizing recriminations – it’s important that the Crab doesn’t head straight for Martyr-ville and say “I’ll just do it myself!” – patience and a bit of manipulation is required – and Taurus – get off your butt and get cracking!
When Cancer and Taurus fall in love…
Cancer rapidly compiles a list of “our special things” – our song, our restaurant, our favorite movie and friends find the morphing into one entity rather tedious. Taurus may start dressing according to Cancers fashion taste resulting in some rather uncomfortably worn ensembles and the crab zealously adopts Taurus interests and starts every sentence with “my boyfriend…”.
Several break ups often occur as Taurus fights to regain some semblance of independence. Cancer can get a bit stalker-ish during these phases – it’s important that friends not take sides – they usually reunite and subsequent pillow talk has the potential to end friendships – just remember Taurus/Cancer are a loyal couple even when fighting – they always side with each other.
Cancer and Taurus sexual compatibility…
Lovely, sensuous lovemaking that’s sometimes of epic proportions. They go for quality rather than quantity and are likely to pencil in sex around special occasions – and that’s great because Cancer can think up a never-ending list of special occasions.
Taurus is a fixed sign – stubborn and suffering from change aversion so it will be up to the creative cardinal sign Cancer to add more flavors to the menu. Both are very much in tune to their environment – perhaps outdoors, on the beach or on the side of a mountain are options for broadening Taurus’ sexual horizon.
Alternatively – let them think it was their idea in the first place – leave a lonely planet edition next to a raunchy magazine and they might just come up with a few new suggestions.
Cancer and Taurus marriage compatibility…
Yes, they are! – compatible that is! Both can be prone to jealousy – Cancer due to fear of being hurt and Taurus due to moments of inadequacy. What better way to allay these fears than to march down the aisle and pledge “forever’s” to each other. The wedding is likely to be traditional – perhaps rustic with a small close group of family and friends in attendance and a honeymoon in lodge country.
Children happen within a year or two and Cancer/Taurus often considers lifestyle changes in order to provide the healthiest options for their growing brood. It’s not unusual for this couple to start an organic hobby farm and move to the country.
Cancer/Taurus create the sort of home where everyone feels welcome and loved – friends and family have fond memories of the warmth and home baked goodies they experienced. In old age, these two are the loving couple that still hold hands sitting on the park bench… awww shucks!
