Who is better for a Taurus woman — a Capricorn man or a Cancer man?

Decisions, decisions.

The question alone sounds like a pitch for a romantic comedy. Tam, a self-sufficent young woman able to hold down her beer and beat her brother at arm wrestling, is torn between two guys. Jack is a type-A Corporate America personality who wears three-piece suits and does power lunches. Sal cooks pastries at the local bakery, and spends his lunch break feeding ducks at Central Park. Tam loves Jack’s confidence and authority, but she’s totally sweet on Sal, a man who’s not afraid to show his vulnerable side.

Jack takes Tam to a swanky uptown restaurant where he slips the maitre d’ a few bills to get them the best table. He wants to fly her on his private jet to Madrid over the weekend. But wait! She has a date with Sal this Saturday to view ‘The Dinner Party’ exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum. What should she do? How can she turn down this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity?

You see, a man with money fills her need for financial security. Not that she can’t make it on her own — she’s doing fine selling her clients’ stuff on eBay — but she’s certainly not opposed to getting a nice diamond. On the other hand, Tam could totally feel taken care of by Sal, in a different way. She loves his romantic nature and that he would go out of his way to make her feel safe. Jack just doesn’t feel cushy, you know.

This turning-point — where the above paragraph plays out in a flashback montage over a catchy but sentimental emo song — occurs near the end of the film.

It’s your turn to write the ending.

  1. I’m a virgo male , would say i only meet a few of the traits suggested as hard wired. I left my home country after graduation and been travelling the world for 20 yrs…. am spontaneous and a risk taker. Married a Capricorn …. who immediately connected with ….but then realised we were just meant to be friends as things just fizzled out….so we split.
    never thought much about astrology until a year ago when i met a woman out of the blue and i had the strongest connection ive ever experienced … we only met for an hr or two ….had a drink…we kissed. and she had to go …musician on tour…had to be in another city in US next day. Anyway, looked into signs after that experience…..ans since then realised that a she is a taurus. Since, however, ive met various taurus women…..and realise they are exactly what attracts me …more than any other sign…. i can pick them out in a crowded room even. Its a truly great connection mentally and physically. If i marry again im sure it will be a taurus woman and will be nothing short of a great thing. And if i dont marry …Cheers to meeting many more taurus women 😉
    Oh and if there is a strong attraction between Taurus women and Cancer guys i dont understand why…. my sis and bro n law are both cancer (luv em butttttt…. they are the most high maintenance…highly strung …overly sensitive… materialistic people. Their moodiness and prententiousness on a par with Picses. They are nice when you buy em something…. lol
    Ciao and have fun folks!

    Hello everyone I been read all the comment.. I am a taurus and have been married to a cap for 7 years now.. I dated two caps right before I met him.. It seem I drawn to them or them me.. Me and my cap husband have a great relationship and it is true that they seem cold but in all actuality they are not sometime you just have to tell them what you are lacking emotional this was the hard part for me because I don’t like have to tell you how I want to be treated.. The thing is he does a lot phsyically to show me he cares and he tell me he love me but as for the small things not so much. But on all other levels things ate great and he does his best now that I explained to him my emotional needs. But mostly he a doer like doing house chore that most man these day don’t do. Oh and also when I was pregnant we would do everything I mean everything clean, cook. He works night and me I work days and he would wake put gas in my car an start during the winter months.. Also I notice that he was more on verbal expressions is emotion more when we date and I think after we married he thought I just knew how he felt and he was kinda right but sometime I just need to hear it. And as far as sex goes will we never had a problem there. I think some people just don’t know how to take caps. They provide all other aspect that a taurus need and you can bring the rest out of them you just have to be willing to work at it and that cap has to trust you and love you other wise it’s not happening.

  3. Awesome comments/blog

  4. Taurus female within a seven year relationship- Capricorn men..hmm he’s boring to me..not romantic, or understanding and im bored in the bedroom which makes me lack sexual energy towards him…no passion just good looking but that’s cutting it fine once you get to know him. We have 2 kids together and claims me as his woman but could live without me…Capricorns are good for boxing, and entertainment that all..complete wash out! I’m strangely attracted to Cancer, Pisces, Taurus and Virgo males.

    I think cancer men are better . they are my loving and nuturing toward women , and they listen better lover. capricorn men work only as somebody taurus can lend on for advice on a friend who they can talk to when things get hard. realtionship wise no. taurus and capricorn will argue about small things like who the boss . they both controlling and picking money hungry. stubborn

    I have had a serious relationship with both a Cancer male and a Capricorn male. The Cancer male was genuine, communicative, sensitive, thoughtful, romantic and would back down during a fight. His goal in life was my comfort and happiness. We lasted 8 years. Everything he did I found sexy. After that relationship, I met a Capricorn man. He was sexually aggressive, which I loved, but we had communication issues throughout. He was hard to read, which made me insecure. I was constantly reassuring him that I was attracted to him and that I wasn’t shopping for another man. He was needy and moody. I felt like I had to constantly win him over (the chase) which probably kept me interested longer than I should have been. The best part of the relationship was the sex. We were very sexually compatible. Ultimately though, he was selfish and was cheap with his money whereas I was generous. I eventually called him out on his always allowing me to pay, which almost broke us up. We ended up breaking up because he couldn’t keep a job (probably all the daily marijuana usage) and became insecure to the extreme. He became obsessed with the idea that I was no longer interested in him and talking to other men. In reality, I was busy at work and not responding as quickly as he would have liked. In my humble opinion, Taurus and Cancer are a better long term match. Capricorn has his magnetic qualities, but Taurus has to make a lot of compromises to make it work.
