At first glance, Gemini man and Taurus woman are complete opposites. Taurus woman is down-to-earth and as stubborn as a rock. She doesn’t even blink as mercurial Gemini flashes past her with his quick-witted repartee.
His efforts to dazzle and charm the majestic bull are lost. All the tricks and wizardry in the world won’t get her to move an inch if she doesn’t want to. But remember that red flag matadors use? Very occasionally he’ll get her attention.
He might even make her smile despite her best intentions. His charming nature may soften the steely reserve of hers. She might overcome her initial doubts and allow herself to fall in love with him. But is Gemini man and Taurus woman ever a good match?
Let’s look at them in a little more detail.
Gemini is the two-faced charmer of the Zodiac. He is the used car salesman who always beats the garage target every month. He is the guy you all want at a party because he tells the best stories. He also has a split personality.
He is never stuck for words. Gemini man is the Greatest Showman. You can thank his ruling planet Mercury for that. A Gemini man can turn his attention to any subject on a dime. His fingers are in every pie and his interests are as wide and varied.
You could have written the song ‘Don’t fence me in’ for Gemini. He is the eternal traveler. This guy has ants in his shoes. If he’s not packing a case or backpack he’s planning his next trip.
I honestly think roller-skates were invented for Geminis. They just want to whizz about quickly so that they can get to the next place. These guys are intelligent, quick-witted, charming, interesting, and sharp. They think fast on their feet and love adventure.
Geminis are free spirits, born to roam the globe until they’ve covered every inch of the planet.
They are also impatient, easily bored, fickle, unpredictable, and unreliable.
Now how does this impact Taurus?
The female Taurus is the epitome of security. We are talking about the ultimate homebody here. Taurus loves nothing better than relaxing in the warmth and love of a family. Think of Taurus as a strong family protector.
Nothing gets past this sign when it comes to making a house a home for her man. Taurus woman is the ultimate earth mother. Sure, she’d love to go off exploring the planet but the baby needs feeding and the teenager needs help with his homework.
Now, don’t get me wrong, Taurus woman is no Stepford wife. Nor is she stuck in the 50s. It’s just that I am comparing Taurus to Gemini and they are two very different people. Taurus loves to explore the senses. She is a very physical beast.
Her idea of experimentation is to cook from a different cuisine, not rush off to buy plane tickets to that country. She loves luxury and comfort, not backpacking in some hostel off the beaten track.
Taurus are calm, quiet, and stable people. They are practical types who like to plan ahead. You won’t find any Taurus woman that doesn’t have life insurance on her husband. It’s not that she wants to collect it, she’s merely safeguarding her future.
On the other hand, Gemini will fly off to dangerous parts of the world with no medical insurance and without getting his jabs.
So if they are so different will the Gemini man Taurus woman relationship survive?
You can sum up this relationship with these words: change vs security.
In any relationship, Gemini men will always want change whereas the female Taurus will crave security. Neither is wrong but perhaps they are just wrong for one another.
Picture your average Taurus female happily making breakfast for the kids while Gemini man is looking through a travel website for couples. Taurus woman is perfectly content, making a home for her family. But yet again, her Gemini man’s head is distracted.
Why is the security and sanctity of family life not enough for him she wonders? Gemini man looks over to his loving wife preparing breakfast and feels a pang of regret. Why doesn’t she share his sense of adventure he thinks to himself?
There may well be things these pair have in common in their relationship but they move at very different speeds. Gemini whizzes around on those roller-skates whilst the Bull is firmly rooted, heavy, and solid. Gemini is rushing the Bull to make a decision, he doesn’t care what it is, just move!
The Bull is pondering. It takes a great effort for her to shift her weight. For one thing, roller-skates wouldn’t take her enormous bulk. She has to be careful. Doesn’t he realize how dangerous it is for her?
So why doesn’t she tell him? You might have wondered why this couple don’t talk to each other. But you have to realize that the Bull is no match for the Twins fast-paced dialogue. Mercury gives Gemini the upper hand when it comes to communication.
No one can match the Twins, for a start, they have two faces to do all the talking. The Bull, on the other hand, wants to contemplate every single word spoken. They need time to properly digest and figure out the best course of action.
The problem is that by the time they’ve come to a conclusion Gemini has vanished. And don’t forget, your typical female Taurus is not much of a talker. She’s more into physical pleasures. Anyone can talk. She doesn’t place much importance on it. It’s just one of those things.
Which is probably why she wasn’t too impressed by Gemini at the start. Maybe the earth mother in her sensed neediness in Gemini. Perhaps he didn’t take care of himself. Geminis often rush about so that they forget to eat or sleep properly.
Taurus women are natural carers. They are grounded and down-to-earth. So much so that you often find them in occupations that require physical contact with others. Geminis are the opposite. They are an air sign ruled by Mercury, the messenger of the Gods. Speaking and communication are the things they’re good at.

But Mercury is also cold and unemotional. Again, the complete opposite of warm earthy Taurus. When a Taurus woman falls in love she falls deeply and unconditionally. If the relationship ends she feels the pain long after the love has gone. She is sweetly sentimental after all.
It is certainly not the same for Gemini. Don’t forget, this guy gets bored easily. If a relationship is over he doesn’t look back. His two faces are firmly focused on the future. He has the ability to cut dead his emotional baggage and move on.
This is probably the one area where Gemini man and Taurus woman compatibility is most troublesome. This is because Taurus is deeply rooted in expressing her love in a physical way. She wants to show her man by caressing, touching, massaging.
On the other hand, you have a Gemini man. If he can concentrate on her long enough or if he stops talking for a second he might notice what she’s doing. Gemini engages in sex through fantasy and letting his mind wander.
For the Bull, sex and intimacy are sacred and all about understanding a deeper level of love between them. Not going off into your own private world. But who is to say either is wrong? The problem is they have trouble communicating.
So can Gemini men and Taurus women ever have a long-term relationship? Of course! Remember, whenever anyone talks about star signs it is the sun sign they are referencing. Your sun sign is your identity. The basic characteristics you show to the world. Your conscious self if you like.
However, you also have a Moon sign. This is your subconscious self. Amongst other things, your moon sign represents your emotions, your moods, and your desires.
So despite the fact that Gemini men and Taurus women are so different, they can get on if they have moons that soften the effect of their sun sign.
For example, if a Gemini man has a moon in an earth sign like Capricorn, Virgo or Taurus he will share some traits as his Taurus woman.
Similarly, if a Taurus woman has a moon in an air sign such as Libra, Aquarius, or Gemini, she may not feel so grounded and share one or two of her Gemini man’s passions.
So all is not lost between Gemini men and Taurus women. All it takes is some compromise between this pair.
Gemini needs to learn that home is the reassuring base from which he can return to. Then he might start to enjoy spending more time there.
And Taurus women should learn that her home will always be there when she gets back from her exciting adventure. Then maybe she won’t miss it so much.
You know, at first glance, things might appear to be impossible in this relationship. These two may seem like complete opposites. But take a second look and we can see that if given the chance they could teach each other an awful lot.
