Western Star Signs
Taurus is stable, grounded, and steady - qualities that Gemini lacks and feels both drawn to and impatient with sometimes. Taurus is intrigued by and respects Gemini's wit, mental agility and intelligence, but is sometimes annoyed with Gemini's inability to make a commitment or to follow through on intentions.
Gemini likes to talk and can jump rapidly from one topic to the next in rapid succession. Taurus, on the other hand, likes to methodically digest one topic at a time, and quickly gets "mental indigestion" from Gemini's fast-paced conversation. When faced with an important decision, for example, Taurus would benefit by taking a quiet walk in the woods or along the beach, while Gemini needs to talk with someone. You must learn to respect each other's different styles, or you will certainly get in each other's way.
At heart, Gemini is more versatile, while Taurus is more down to earth. On the other hand, Gemini is essentially articulate, versatile and adroit. Put another way, Gemini likes variety. Gemini is an idea person. Gemini's mind naturally likes to go from subject to subject.
At times, Taurus may feel like Gemini has not one, but at least two different personalities.
On a personal level, you may be too exciting for the plodding Taurus. They need lots of touch and sensual motivation. Taurus may not respond as animatedly as you'd like, either. You need to talk more; Taurus needs to touch more.
It is important that Taurus acquire some mastery over the physical, practical and earthly world. Then, paradoxically, Taurus must learn to let go. Taurus will only find security by acquiring a sense of self that is separate from possessions. Actually, it's not so much about what you possess Taurus, but about not being in "survival jeopardy."
