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-Sagittarius interaction is challenging but can be fun since the rulers Venus and Jupiter are in play. In classical astrology, these points are known as the lesser benefic and the greater benefic. As the “I establish” sign of the Zodiac, Taurus prefers well-worn paths, plodding along, and playing it safe. Sagittarius is the “I expand” sign of the Zodiac, and loves to explore, share, and adventure. A long-term relationship (outside parent/child) can happen so long as they take each other in the proper doses, which should be limited to key moments together.
Taurus Parent/Sagittarius Child
The Taurus parent and Sagittarius child will be one of the more difficult configurations because they cannot really separate, which they both need. Sagittarius, as a type, is commonly upbeat and adventurous, which will make the Taurus parent seem like a “stick in the mud”. The Sagittarius child wants to explore the world and the Taurus parent likes his or her world to be consistent, and usually very local. Think of Taurus as a wall the Sagittarius child keeps wanting to climb over, defeating the purpose of the wall.
Sagittarius Parent/Taurus Child
The Sagittarius parent and Taurus child dynamic is as problematic as the reverse combination, but for different reasons. In this scenario, the Sagittarius parent is likely taking the Taurus child, and any other children, on the adventure with them. Taurus will not necessarily appreciate a routine as inconsistent as what the Sagittarius brings. If the Taurus parent is the wall the Sagittarius child wants to climb over, imagine a Sagittarius parent trying to take a wall on a vacation.
Taurus Friend/Sagittarius Friend
Taurus and Sagittarius friends can value each other in spurts. Even Taurus needs a vacation and the Sagittarius is the perfect person to help Taurus go out and explore the world once and a while. Even Sagittarius needs a home base and place to rest, which the Taurus friend can offer when Sagittarius “blows into town”. If they strike up with each other in these moments of need, the friendship will produce the best energy for both of them.
Taurus Lover/Sagittarius Lover
This romance, love, sex combination can be one of the “odd couple” matches that will need other factors in the chart to help prop it up over the long term. Taurus is “let’s share our bodies together forever” and Sagittarius is “I want to explore many bodies with my body and enjoy the variety of life”. It is very likely that the love, romance, and sex for the Sagittarius might be a grand love affair among many love affairs, while the same experience for the Taurus will be “the one that got away”.
Taurus Employer/Sagittarius Employee
The Taurus employer and the Sagittarius employee can work if the Sagittarius is in a position that reports to the Taurus in fits and spurts because the Sagittarian is out on the road doing the company business. The Sagittarius will always be looking for new vistas to explore, which can help the Taurus employer find new opportunities. If the Taurus employer lets the Sagittarius employee “do his or her thing” and the Sagittarius employee does not abuse the security the Taurus employer provides, this combination will work just fine.
Sagittarius Employer/Taurus Employee
If the employer is a Sagittarius and the employee is Taurus, this combination can work with a proper appreciation for the talents of each sign and the power dynamic. Sagittarius wants to expand and Taurus wants to keep work steady and consistent. When the Sagittarius finds a new venture and needs to stabilize it into a productive and reliable addition to the business, they will be wise in putting a Taurus in charge of the steps to get the new product or service “into the foundation” of the company.
Taurus Co-worker/Sagittarius Co-worker
This combination is not that good. Oddly enough, when the power dynamic is “above/below” things are easier. If they are considered equals, then the difference in their energies and approaches will cause frustration or even conflict. Simply put, Sagittarius loves risk and Taurus is risk-averse. If they are working on the same project, or on a team, they will clash in their approaches.
