Western Star Signs
Both of you are essentially gentle, with a tendency to avoid confrontation and conflict if at all possible. Loyalty to home and family run strong in both of you, and you are both rather attached to things as they are; you resist changes and are not overly fond of surprises. Security is important to you both, and you both give your friends a lot of support and help when needed. Cancer is more emotional, sensitive, and easily upset than Taurus is; Taurus is more steady and even-tempered. You are likely to get along very, very well.
On the other hand, Cancer is a good person who needs to deal with family and emotional issues. Cancer's hugs are world class and Cancer's snuggles are second to none. Cancer is naturally inclined to be touchy about some, but not all relatives, and needs to work on the family tree and make some sense of it all.
Essentially, Taurus needs to be assured that everything's O.K., safe and secure. Once that's taken care of Taurus is ready for gracious living. That is to say, Taurus need some good food, antique furniture and passion.
Cancer has moods that change about four times a day, every two and a half days, every month and every 18 or 19 years. Cancer needs to make the most of these cycles, and establish goals with corresponding deadlines. It s crucial for Taurus to be considerate of Cancer's changing moods.
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."
Cancer is not necessarily the most direct individual. Security is something Cancer is always aware of. Usually it's a top priority. Cancer is definitely strong and protective of turf.
