Taurus and Cancer Relationship Key Facts

Earth signs such as Taurus are sensible and emotional, but always remain grounded and rational; being practical-minded is in their nature. In comparison, water signs like Cancer experience intense feelings, and there’s no filter to this.

Their depth and intuition can be surprising for a Taurus. However, this sensitivity and intensity of emotion can also sometimes be a tragical flaw. Luckily, Taurus can help to bring Cancer with their feet back down to earth, helping to keep them grounded and stable.

In their relationship, they are very sweet, cozy, and attentive to each other’s needs. While Cancer’s emotions and affection might sometimes be a bit too much, Taurus is happy with how loved they feel.

Like the Moon’s phases, a Cancer can go through different cycles, each with very intense feelings to them. Cancers are melancholic, nostalgic, they tend to dwell on the past, for better or for worse. They crave attention and affection. They are also very serious about their relationships.

If Taurus fails to provide them with the attention they need, or if Taurus chooses to focus on themselves more, Cancer will feel hurt and neglected, and might start to question their relationship.

They want to know for certain that their dreams for starting a family and living happily ever after will be fulfilled.

Taurus are rather conservative and methodical, so sometimes they will find a Cancer’s actions to be impulsive, and their emotions confusing. Cancer might also not be aware that Taurus doesn’t see or feel the world in the same way as they are.

Cancers are in tune with their emotions and like to discuss them freely and often. Practical and down to earth Taurus might be caught off-guard, as they are not used to talking about their inner life in such a way. Instead of talking it off, Taurus tend to bottle up until their emotions splash out in an explosion.

However, for the most part, their relationships are all roses and rainbows. Friends, co-workers, relatives, they can always form a strong bond and communicate heart to heart.

Children will also happen after a very short while.

Drawbacks of This Match

When it comes to different opinions, the Taurus and Cancer match might have a hard time forming an objective opinion and accepting that they might be wrong.

Cancers need to be more confident and to stop stressing and overthinking about small details. Their constant talk about feelings and everything negative can desensitize and drain Taurus out in the long run.

On the other hand, Taurus will need to show more vulnerability and to talk about their feelings more freely from time to time. Also, Taurus will have to remember that duties are to be split equally. They need to get over their procrastination and act more responsibly, otherwise they will feel the wrath of their Cancer partner.

Cancers are prone to nagging and short on patience when they have to explain something twice. If you can’t do something well, a Cancer will do it all alone, but not without letting you know that they’re judging you.
