Sun in Aries, Moon in Taurus Compatibility

Courage collides with conviction in this stop-and-go partnership. Friction will arise when the fiery push of Aries is met by the earthy shove of Taurus.

Sun in Aries is on a mission, and it involves going forward. Bold, brash and focused on the future, he’ll accelerate any relationship he’s in by sheer force of will. Sun in Aries needs continuous challenges to test his courage and develop his purpose. He does best with a partner who can either provide these challenges within the relationship or keep up with him when he goes on the hunt.

Moon in Taurus wants stability and security. Her ultimate goal is serenity, and she’ll be drawn towards anyone who can provide that. This is one of the more sensual planet/sign combinations; her ideal partner will love cuddling as much as she does. She’ll be the emotional rock in the relationship, never wavering once she is committed. The downside is that she can become so fixated on peace that she avoids change or conflict. Moon in Taurus can stagnate as she stubbornly clings to what’s safe.

This is not an easy combination. Moon in Taurus will step back and let Sun in Aries take the lead, but she’ll feel threatened as she does this. Sun in Aries will be frustrated as he pushes for a challenge (usually by starting an argument) and his Taurus partner shuts down. She won’t engage him until he backs her into a corner. Then Moon in Taurus will fight to protect (what she perceives as) her survival and Aries Sun will have a bigger fight on his hands than he bargained for. This will be an exhausting process for both partners as they attempt to deal with energies that are completely foreign to them.

However, difficult Sun/Moon combinations can work if other energies balance them out. Taurus Moon can provide Sun in Aries with a stable home to return to between adventures (even an Aries needs to rest on occasion). Sun in Aries will remind his Taurus partner that change is vital for growth. If other aspects in their natal and composite charts bind them together, this couple could make their differences work for them.

  1. It’s a strong mars (aries) and venus (taurus) attraction between the two.. the relationship would be difficult, but no way near boring!!
