Taurus and Leo can't seem to keep their hands off each other. As fixed signs, they share an urge for loyalty and stable affection. Although that's true for Taurus and Leo, that doesn't make it an easy relationship. 

Fixed signs are like the sign says -- fixed, immovable, penetrating, stubborn and lovers of stability. They have something in common there!    

With Taurus and Leo, there's a hard square angle, for tension and conflict. While this creates friction, the many Leo-Taurus couples prove that some prefer the path of most resistance!

When first dating, Leo enjoys being the prize possession of the Bull, who shows love with valuable or hand-crafted gifts and advice. Both are uninhibited pleasure-seekers, making sex the glue, and the catharsis for relationship frustrations.

High-spirited Leo helps Taurus cast off its cloak of reserve, and indulge in the moment. Once Taurus lets their hair down, they let it all hang out -- many love to lounge around in the buff!  Leo has a bit of the exhibitionist in their make-up too -- get ready for some artful tableau and gestures of sensuality!

Both know how to have fun, often preferring languid, relaxed pleasures over sustained busyness. Taurus the builder prods Leo to put their wildest dreams into tangible reality.

The Love Glue

Further into the relationship, they'll discover that what doesn't kill their bond, makes it stronger. Here you have two notoriously stubborn types, and there are high noon showdowns throughout this relationship.

Tensions flare with Leo isn't getting the adulation they expect or even the time of day. If Taurus is absorbed elsewhere for too long, the Lion roars! When Leo feels consistently dissed, like their needs don't matter, it can become a fundamental problem.

Taurus finds Leo demanding, and taxing on their mellow nature. Here's a couple that may argue all the time, but still end up side-by-side in rockers on the porch. It doesn't always work, but friction can be a refining force in relationships, too. It's love with an edge, and that keeps them wedged in for life.

High points are pride in children and other shared creations. Taurus and Leo are a creative team if their formidable energies are diverted away from drama and clash of wills. They thrive together when that intensity goes into manifesting the dream.

Taurus and Leo Love Story

Reader "T" writes:  "This is very true. I'm a Taurus and I like to stick to a very few people.. And my Leo likes to be known and show off that he's the king. Yes, when it comes to us arguing its outrageous! We say things to each other that are crazy. But later its normal and we make up. We love each other a lot. He is very demanding and tries to be the controlling leader. I hate it at times but it is what it is. We talk things over and try to agree on things to keep things leveled. We are both stubborn! Sex? He's in control of it all! He spoils me! We both have hearts and were loyal. Our signs say were complicated but the relationship lasts longer if we both just communicate and agree on things we both agree on and everything will be cool!"

Upside: High passion factor; the love lock here with loyalty is hard to break; hedonists loving life; proud of what's created together - home, children, material possessions; resourceful pair that works hard and plays hard.

Downside: Indifference as a strategy to drive the other crazy; compromise a challenge; rageful fights; stubborn to a fault.
