Aries and Taurus are side-by-side in the zodiac, but does that mean they’re fated to be side-by-side in life? Despite being cosmic neighbors, these two are very different—Aries is a hotheaded fire sign, while Taurus is a steady earth sign. Let’s talk more about Aries and Taurus compatibility.

Aries and Taurus: Personality Traits

Aries and Taurus are incredibly different. Elementally, Aries is a fire sign (hotheaded, passionate, outgoing, has a temper) and Taurus is an earth sign (slow and steady, practical, considerate, deliberate). In terms of modality, Aries is a cardinal sign (making them a natural leader and someone who loves to try new things) and Taurus is a fixed sign (making them stubborn as hell and resistant to change).

Aries and Taurus: Friendship Compatibility

For all these differences, Aries and Taurus can get along amazingly as friends. Signs that are side by side in the zodiac are sometimes said to have big sibling/little sibling energy—they might bicker, but when it comes down to it, they’ve got each other’s backs. However, there is one big difference that could put this friendship at risk: Aries is quick to anger and just as quick to forgive, while Taurus is slow to anger but holds a grudge for life.

Aries and Taurus: Sexual Compatibility

In astrology, Aries and Taurus form a 30-degree angle called a semisextile, and it’s an aspect associated with uncomfy vibes. Sexually, this means that this pair might simply be too different to be a good match: Aries loves a quickie, and Taurus wants to spend all day in bed together. The key to making this match work sexually is for both signs to be open to experimentation—something that can be a challenge for Taurus in particular. Something encouraging to add is that Aries's ruling planet is Mars, the planet of sex, and Taurus's is Venus, the planet of love and pleasure...so both signs are very interested in sex! If Aries and Taurus can approach sex with an open mind, they’ll be sure to find some shared hot interests, and have fun trying everything under the Sun along the way.

Aries and Taurus: Relationship Compatibility

You know that scene in David Beckham’s Netflix documentary, where Victoria Beckham says she grew up working-class and David interrupts her to say, “Be honest! What car did your dad drive you to school in?” That’s Aries/Taurus relationship energy (David is a Taurus, and Victoria is an Aries, BTW). These two challenge each other, but in ways that A) help each other grow and B) are a lot of fun. If they can find a communication style that clicks, they can have a relationship that helps them both grow.

Aries and Taurus: Marriage Compatibility

Everything I said about a relationship goes double when talking about a marriage or a long-term, committed relationship. This can be a marriage where both people grow and learn a lot from each other, but it can also go down in flames if they’re not able to communicate and compromise.
