There are numerous types of relationships to explore when considering compatibility between two signs. We grow up in a parent/child dynamic. Outside our family, we form friendships with other children and eventually other adults. We look for and find love. And, we go to work and have careers, interacting with employers and co-workers.
Each sign-to-sign interaction guides our behavior in every relationship. Read through this section to find out how each of the above dynamics works astrologically so you can experience the optimal way to communicate and get along with your sign and all the other signs.
The Taurus-and-Cancer interaction is complementary and supportive. As the “I establish” sign of the Zodiac, Taurus prefers well-worn paths, plodding along, and playing it safe. Cancer is the “I nurture” sign of the Zodiac and is caring, sympathetic, and compassionate. A long-term relationship (outside parent/child) is a very strong possibility with these two signs. Both signs have what it takes to commit and contribute to a lasting and deeply loving relationship.
Taurus Parent/Cancer Child
The Taurus parent and Cancer child will bond deeply. The Taurus parent is all about repetitive tasks, especially where chores and responsibilities apply. The Cancer child will crave emotional support and will feel especially safe and cared for by the reliable and stable Taurus parent. In return, the Taurus parent will enjoy a child who wants to care for his or her parents, helping them enjoy the emotional bond between parent and child.
Cancer Parent/Taurus Child
The Cancer parent and Taurus child will also enjoy a strong bond. Cancer is a caretaker, which, to Taurus, can often feel truly wonderful, since they want to feel looked after as they come into their own as supportive providers for the world around them as they grow into their power. Taurus strives for stability and consistency, which can help the Cancer parent know just what the child needs and how to meet those needs as a parent. In truth, the Cancer parent would do well to have more than one child, but if they ended up with just a single child, one of the earth signs would be best.
Taurus Friend/Cancer Friend
Taurus and Cancer friends can really benefit from knowing each other. They will know, without a doubt, that they can count on each other. Taurus will find an emotional safe harbor with their Cancer friend and Cancer will know that the world does have reliable people through the actions and consistent behavior of their Taurus friend. These energies have the qualities for a life-long friendship no matter what age they meet.
Taurus Lover/Cancer Lover
This romance, love, sex combination is very intense and can only be rivaled by Taurus and Scorpio, which can prove to be a bit more dramatic, with Scorpio involved. This is a deep love connection that can make one of the strongest foundations for family and secure life. Both signs are serious about commitment and responsibility. And they can really enjoy each other in the bedroom, intertwining physical and emotional pleasure that only builds and deepens over time.
Taurus Employer/Cancer Employee
The Taurus employer and the Cancer employee can be a good combination for a business. Taurus wants his business and employees to work hard, produce consistent output, and build a reliable reputation. Cancer, as an employee, can be a tremendous asset for a Taurus boss because they see every interaction as an opportunity to build and support a family. This combination can make a great working situation for both individuals.
Cancer Employer/Taurus Employee
If the employer is Cancer and the employee is Taurus, this combination is just as good as the reverse. Cancer wants to know what is going on and how everyone is feeling. The Taurus employee wants to be sure his or her work is consistent, valuable and helping the company sustain itself and constantly succeed. The Taurus employee will feel taken care of emotionally and the Cancer employer will get a steadfastly loyal employee
Taurus Co-worker/Cancer Co-worker
This combination will be excellent. These two signs want to feel safe, help those they care about feel safe and have tremendous senses of loyalty and responsibility. As co-workers, they will both work hard to make sure the other feels like they can be trusted. And their work ethic is among the strongest of all the signs.
