Friendships between Taurus and Aquarius are rare. While the earth and the air might seem like they meet, Taurus is a deeply rooted Earth sign, and Aquarius is in the upper stratas of the atmosphere. There is an imense void between these two zodiac signs.
While it is not unheard of for mellower members of these sun sign groups to bond over common interests, in most cases what these two astrological signs want from life is so different that they have very low compatibility. If they do find themselves friends, they will surely disagree often.

Are Taurus and Aquarius Compatible as Friends?
Taurus and Aquarius are very different in their outlooks on life, which means that there is very little to tie them together as friends. While Taurus are card-carrying members of “the system” and crave the usual signs or wealth and respect, Aquarius fancies themsleves as outsiders, and tend to see themselves as above the system.
While those at the lighter end of the spectrum as far as their horoscope is concerned may find mutual interests to bind them together, Taurus and Aquarius that are at the extreme end of the section will struggle to find any common ground.
Taurus and Aries can share quite a few mutual interests. They are both deeply interested in the world around them. They love diving deeply into subjects and learning everything there is to know.
Both signs are likely to “geek out” over whatever they are passionate about, and might find themselves bonding thanks to that shared interest.
But, these two really do have different outlooks on the world. Taurus believes in traditional ideas of success and the material evidence of that success. They have a craving to be accepted and respected.
Aquarius is more individualistic in their interests, and tend to buck social norms on purpose, seeing that paradigm as a prison. They have an innate belief in their own self-worth and don’t need validation from anyone.
These different values can be a point of tension between the two. This tension can sometimes manifest in arguments. While Aquarius usually keeps their opinions to themselves, nothing encourages them to talk more than Taurus’ constant need to convince everyone about their ideas.
While Taurus is a generous person who believes in the importance of valuing and investing time in the people that you care about, Aquarius is an individualistic spirit. They don’t feel like they need anyone else to complete them, and they also don’t really feel like they owe anyone else anything.
As Aquarius is busy doing their own thing and in their “me against the world” headspace, they can unwittingly rebuff Taurus’ offers of friendship and loyalty.
While Taurus doesn’t like to show it, they are a highly sensitive soul. They also like to feel appreciated and respected. When Aquarius fails to show their appreciation, Taurus too can withdraw their loyalty. They would prefer in invest in people who seem more interested.
Fun & Excitement
Neither of these signs are fans of over the top consumption or ostentatious adventure as a source of fun.
Taurus prefers to spend time with their nearest and dearest rather than performing for large groups of people.
Aquarius tend to have their own quirky interests that they will invest in, regardless of what everyone else is doing. They too would never deign to perform for a crowd, and prefer to invest their time in the people that they find truly interesting.
If these two manage to find some common ground, they can find that they are very much at home in the other’s idea of fun, which is mostly about deep conversation and self-discovery.
Likelihood to Last
Taurus and Aquarius need to overcome the struggle of forming a friendship before they can try and build something that will last.
These two have a tendency to rub each other the wrong way. Aquarius tends to think that Taurus is superficial, and Taurus thinking that Aquarius is, well… a hippie.
If they do find a common interest, they might be able to move past these surface impressions and see the intelligent and interesting person underneath. If they do manage to do that, then their friendship may last.
While Taurus and Aquarius might find themselves geeking out over their favorite topic, their friendship is very likely to remain linked to the things that they share, rather than become deeply emotional.
This is because neither are wont to share their emotions. Taurus is reticent for fear of getting hurt and needs to find someone that they truly trust to open up. Aquarius just doesn’t tend to need that kind of emotional outlet, and prefers to deal with things on their own.
So, while the two might seem close, and even connected at the hip when it comes to certain activities, their bond is not always deep. They both probably have other people that they would turn to in a crisis before looking to one another.
Taurus and Aquarius Potential to be More Than Just Friends
Considering the difficulties that are associated with a Taurus-Aquarius friendship, it should be no surprise that they don’t really make a strong love match.
They may find themselves in each other’s orbit through their shared interests, and opposites attract. So, these two might find themselves trying it on for size, but the connection tends to be uncomfortable.
Taurus is really looking for a stable and secure partner that can make them feel loved and appreciated every day. Independent Aquarius is not really equipped to provide that regular reassurance. They can also find the constant unspoken demand for it incredibly draining.
Their usually differing opinions when it comes to social norms and signs of success can also act as an ongoing point of tension. Taurus may feel like they are carrying lazy Aquarius. While Aquarius can feel like they are being dragged into a world that they do not want to be part of.
While there are some very happy Taurus and Aquarius couples out there, they are the exception rather than the rule.
