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-Libra interaction is interesting because the signs inconjunct, which is usually challenging, but they are both ruled by Venus, which smooths out most of the dissonance. As the “I establish” sign of the Zodiac, Taurus prefers well-worn paths, plodding along, and playing it safe. Libra is the “I relate” sign of the Zodiac, and is analytical, connecting, and fair. A long-term relationship (outside parent/child) can happen. Libra is a cardinal sign, that leads by partnering, and Taurus wants to establish a long-term partnership in each of its most important connections.
Taurus Parent/Libra Child
The Taurus parent and Libra child will find some degree of harmony, mainly because the Libra child is attuned to read the emotions and reactions of others, and Taurus is easy to read. Libra, as a type, wants to know how to relate successfully with each person he or she meets. Thus, the Libra child will quickly figure out the rhythms of his or her Taurus parent and work to make interactions as positive as possible. And the Taurus parent will provide safety and resources for his or her children, appreciating Libra’s grace and appreciation for being taken care of.
Libra Parent/Taurus Child
The Libra parent and Taurus child can work in the same way as the Taurus parent and Libra child. The Libra parent will learn and teach the Taurus child when it is best to be fixed in his or her opinions and when it is necessary to listen to and relate to others. The child will want to feel physically secure and be allowed to enjoy his or her patterns. In both parent/child dynamics, the Libra will lead regarding relating and the Taurus will learn about relating.
Taurus Friend/Libra Friend
Taurus and Libra friends are very important to each other because they are sharing the relating energy of Venus. Relationships are deeply important to them, and they have much to gain from one another. They can struggle because one is very practical and the other can be very cerebral, but this challenge is not as great as what Taurus would experience with Aquarius or Gemini. These two can have a comfortable and enduring friendship.
Taurus Lover/Libra Lover
This romance, love, sex combination is very good thanks to the Venus connection. Taurus is a “let me share my body with you” lover and Libra is a “I will give you what you want so long as you give me what I want in return” lover. Once Libra figures out what Taurus wants and needs, Taurus will happily be sure that the Libra individual gets his or her needs met in return. The romance and love can endure since they both appreciate what it takes to make a relationship last, a combination of persistence and communication.
Taurus Employer/Libra Employee
The Taurus employer and the Libra employee combination works just fine. As the sign that prefers to relate, the Libra employee will make sure his or her relationship is working with the Taurus employer. They can also help other employees find the right balance with a Taurus boss. The Taurus boss will value an employee who works tirelessly to make sure their relationship and the relationship with others is harmonious and balanced.
Libra Employer/Taurus Employee
If the employer is a Libra and the employee is Taurus, this combination works in similar ways to the Taurus employer/Libra employee dynamic. Libra wants things done so that everyone is pleased with the process and results. They want harmony in the completion of tasks. As a result, they may be the best managers for any sign. Since Taurus keeps on keeping on; there will be little in the way of managing them when it comes to getting tasks done. It may take more effort to get the Taurus to attend the Christmas party than tackling a difficult work assignment.
Taurus Co-worker/Libra Co-worker
This combination is good. If there must be some teamwork or partnering, making sure Libra is on the team with any sign is a good plan. Taurus will be fine so long as those on the team working with him or her can pull their own weight. The Libra can manage the interpersonal dynamics, while the Taurus can show everyone else how the work needs to be done.
