When Taurus and Libra form a friendship, it can be the unification of two halves of a whole. Both Signs are looking for security, and they share a refinement and love of art, poetry and culture. They can come together harmoniously because they are both trying to achieve the same thing. The friendship may start slowly, and on the surface they might have few common interests, but once they understand each other there is a lot of mutual respect and a realization that there is more in common than they may have first believed.
Taurus and Libra both appreciate physical resources, and they often enjoy collecting art and jewelry and patronizing the theater. Emotion and pleasure are important to both Signs, and they complement each other in many ways. Taurus appreciates Libra’s charm and diplomacy, and their ability to smooth things over if Taurus doesn’t get their way. Libra appreciates the Taurean love of beauty and the little luxuries that come with it. Additionally, Libra can help Taurus see the different sides of a situation, rather than making a decision without knowing all the facts. Conversely, Taurus can help Libra overcome their notorious indecision.
Both Taurus and Libra are ruled by the Planet Venus. These friends share a love of beauty and luxury. Libra in particular is about balance, and both friends have charming personalities and a desire for harmony. Together they are able to bring other people culture and beauty unlike any other pair of friends. Also due to Venus’ influence, both partners can be lazy, and they may be snobbish: Taurus based on possessions, and Libra based on intellect.
Taurus is an Earth Sign, and Libra is an Air Sign. Libra navigates life by pure intellectual exploration, while Taurus is more practical. Taurus asks, ‘how will this help me achieve my goals in life?’ while Libra simply focuses on intellectual stimuli, practical or not. At times, these friends may find it difficult to understand where the other is coming from. Conflicts can arise in this friendship if Taurus seems too possessive or Libra seems too flirtatious and social. Both need to learn that they view the world in different ways.
Taurus is a Fixed Sign, and Libra is a Cardinal Sign. A Fixed Sign won’t budge, and Libra needs to understand this stubborn tendency. With some gentle persuasion anything is possible. On the other hand, Libra’s indecision may irritate Taurus. Libra is skilled at seeing all sides of a problem, so they are often able to accept Taurus’ decision as long as Taurus avoids claiming that theirs is the only right way to solve a problem. If Libra can be the initiator of the duo, Taurus will keep the momentum going.
The best aspect of the Taurus-Libra friendship is their mutual appreciation of beauty and culture. Aesthetics are important to both friends, and they share of love of the finer things in life. Their similar tastes and loves makes theirs a harmonious friendship.
