Here’s a classic blend of two Earth signs with different (yet complementary) qualities. Taurus caution blends well with Virgo practicality. But their subtle differences are enough to keep this relationship from getting stale.
Sun in Taurus is focused on the basics. Comfort, security and long-term potential are what he looks for in a relationship. He’s a master at creating sensual abundance with his partner; Sun in Taurus takes the physical (food, sex, money, comfort) to its highest potential. He needs a partner who appreciates the peace and security he offers, while understanding that he clings fiercely to what’s established. The Bull is not big on change or flexibility.
Moon in Virgo is focused on the details. She’s an emotional fact-checker who constantly scans her relationship to see if everything adds up. Her partner must accept that her drive for security includes searching for flaws. But her worrying is also what propels her forward; improvement of herself, her partner and her relationship is the agenda. She shows her love and support with practical advice and mother hen fussing. When she is most comfortable, Moon in Virgo will discuss everything, from health issues to concerns about the future.
There is an immediate resonance between these two. Sun in Taurus’ drive for security will be supported and enhanced by Virgo’s practicality. He’ll lay down the foundation for their lives and she’ll fine-tune the details. He’ll even be open to change—the way Virgo presents it: small, practical steps that aren’t threatening. When Moon in Virgo spins her wheels in an obsessive worry loop, Taurus will calmly stop her. His lack of anxiety will relax her and bring out her earthy, sensual side that few people see. Together can they build a solid union while modifying the excessive parts of their personalities.
