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-Leo interaction is challenging. As the “I establish” sign of the Zodiac, Taurus prefers well-worn paths, plodding along, and playing it safe. Leo is the “I perform” sign of the Zodiac, and is romantic, creative, and playful. A long-term relationship (outside parent/child) can happen, but other factors in the chart will have to help make it happen and keep it positive. Both are fixed signs, so if they come together, separating can be difficult even if the relationship is toxic.
Taurus Parent/Leo Child
The Taurus parent and Leo child can really struggle. The Taurus parent is all about repetitive tasks, especially where chores and responsibilities apply. The Leo child wants recognition for its efforts and talents, and Taurus can easily disregard giving praise for things that are basic expectations and responsibilities in his or her mind. Like all earth signs, the Taurus parent is practical and no-nonsense, while the Leo child craves fun, creativity, and a fair amount of nonsense.
Leo Parent/Taurus Child
The Leo parent and Taurus child combination is a slightly better dynamic than the reverse combination. Leo, like Capricorn, and Libra, can be very concerned about status and how family members’ behaviors “reflect” on the family name. The Taurus child will seek a reliable way to express himself or herself, and if it aligns with an interest or value of the Leo parent, this combination can go smoothly. If, however, the Leo parent wants the Taurus child to be something the child is not interested in being, the Taurus can “sit down” and be unmoved until the Leo parent gives up.
Taurus Friend/Leo Friend
Taurus and Leo friends can exist, but mostly because of their fixed natures more so than the alignment of values. Leo wants attention and likes to “showboat” while Taurus does not, on both counts. However, if the Leo person needs a reliable “partner in crime” the Taurus will fit the bill. And if the Taurus individual needs to have some fun and “get out and socialize”, the Leo will certainly help them get out and “live a little”.
Taurus Lover/Leo Lover
This romance, love, sex combination is not easy on either sign. Taurus likes a tried and true, loyal, largely private romance. And he or she wants it to be personal, predictable, and long-lasting. The Leo wants a big romance, with all the PDA (public displays of affection) that is supposed to come with a storybook romance. The relationship should be as creative and long-lasting as possible, which is why other factors in the charts would have to help this love affair spark and last.
Taurus Employer/Leo Employee
The Taurus employer and the Leo employee can work if they do not have to cross paths too often in the workday and through their roles. Taurus wants things done a certain way, and consistently, to the point of boredom, at least in the mind of a Leo employee. The Leo employee craves “the stage” and the recognition that comes with a job well done, which is not likely to be the case with a Taurus employer who thinks, “do your job.” It is likely that the Taurus employer will not appreciate the Leo employee’s need for attention and the Leo employee will not enjoy the Taurus “stick in the mud” approach to business.
Leo Employer/Taurus Employee
If the employer is Leo and the employee is Taurus, this combination is less troublesome. Leo wants to lead and be the main actor in the drama of business. Taurus prefers to keep its head down and get its job done. A wise Leo employer will know that his Taurus employee will never embarrass him or her and will always be reliable. If the Leo boss is not the “boss of bosses”, he will be grateful to have a Taurus employee on his team because that employee will never try to outshine his employer.
Taurus Co-worker/Leo Co-worker
This combination can work if both employees “stay in their lanes”. As long as the Taurus has plenty of work to do and can do it at his or her own pace, and in line with the company’s needs, he or she will be happy. If the Leo employee can get the chance to earn rewards and recognition for his or her performance, then he or she will be happy. Their very different approaches to work will only clash if they are required to do something together, which a wise employer will avoid.
