Are Taurus and Gemini Compatible as Friends?
While Taurus and Gemini are very different as people, they work very well as friends. Sat next to each other on the zodiac chart, they are comfortable with the differences that exist between them.
Both take a live and let live approach to life and they are not looking for a twin, or someone to live in their pockets. They want someone who they trust and care about. As both are very giving and loving, they do find this in one another.
These two will often go off and lead their separate lives, and then come back together to tell the exciting tale.
While Taurus and Gemini seem quite different on the outside, they actually share a surprising number of mutual interests. This is because their heads are both easily turned by glitz, glamour, and what they see as outward symbols of success.
But their approach to life is completely different. While Gemini wants everything now, and also feels like things should fall into their laps relatively easily, Taurus values the things that they need to work for.
While Gemini wants to get into something quickly and then move onto the next thing, Taurus are more inclined to commit themselves to something in the long term.
This means that, while a mutual interest may often bring them together, it rarely binds them together for long, as Gemini will quickly move onto the next thing leaving Taurus behind.
But that does not mean that the connection they made is lost.
Gemini can be a little unthoughtful. They can easily forget the commitments that they have made to one person when something more interesting comes along. But this is never a sign that the other person is not important to them, just that they live in the moment.
In reality, Gemini cares very deeply about all the people in their lives. While they might sometimes let them down because they are so easily distracted, they will never cease to be someone that they care about.
Taurus, on the other hand, is an incredibly dedicated friend who will work hard to maintain connections with the people they care about, calling them regularly for example.
This persistence helps keep Gemini on course and ensure that a level of loyalty and commitment is maintained between the two.
Fun & Excitement
Gemini and Taurus are very different when it comes to their idea of fun. Taurus always likes to have a plan, and know what will happen. While there is nothing that Gemini likes more than spontaneity and surprise.
Taurus can find Gemini’s flaky behavior when it comes to keeping plans and the tendency to do the unexpecting frustrating. But their laid back nature means that they generally accept this as part of Gemini’s character and let them get on with it, while they get on with their own things.
Gemini too doesn’t mind that Taurus isn’t always keen to join them on their adventures. There is always someone new to share the experience with. Plus, they enjoy telling Taurus about it after the fact, especially if they can invoke a little bit of shock.
Likelihood to Last
While whatever brought Taurus and Gemini together is likely to be short-lived, the resulting connection is one that is likely to last. This is because both signs value the people in their lives, even if they do it in very different ways.
Both signs are also relatively laid back and take a live and let live attitude to their friends.
While Taurus can be a little on the sensitive side and may take some of Gemini’s neglect to heart, they tend to get over it quickly as they decide that the friendship is more important to them than a small slight.
While Gemini is always off making new friends, stable and caring Taurus is likely to be one of the ones that they come back to again and again. They provide a welcome anchor while the rest of their life is in flux, even if they don’t know that they are looking for it.
Taurus and Gemini generally tend to form a pretty tight bond. This is fuelled by the fact that Gemini loves to talk, and Taurus loves to be confided in.
Impulsive Gemini can also often find themselves in an unexpected bind, and Taurus is the first person to offer them help. These kinds of events create a level of intimacy in a relationship and trust that can then continue to grow.
Taurus and Gemini Potential to be More Than Just Friends
While Taurus and Gemini make great friends, they do not always thrive in the deeper connection of a relationship. This is mostly because their lives just don’t fit together.
The two may bond intensely for a short period of time over a shared interest of event, and this may blossom into a love connection. But the resulting relationship is usually short-lived.
This is because, while Taurus can accept flaky and unreliable behavior in a friend, this is much more difficult in a partner. They are looking to build and stable and secure life. Taurus will quickly see that this is something that may be impossible with Gemini.
Gemini too can become frustrated with Taurus. They can feel like their more serious partner is holding them back and stopping them from exploring their passions and interests.
But the two are very likely to remain friends after their relationship has run their course. Both are intelligent enough to see that the relationship did not fall apart because of one person, but simply because the two are so different.
They tend to be able to move forward to a happier and healthier relationship as friends.
