Unfortunately, these are two signs that can struggle to find much in the way of common ground, meaning that a long-term partnership can prove difficult. The Taurus woman wants all the old chestnuts of stability, security, and practicality, whereas the Aquarius guy is something of a maverick who favors different ideals and doesn’t want to live by anybody’s rules but his own.
Taurus is an Earth sign, while Aquarius is a head-in-the-clouds Air sign, which creates a natural dichotomy (and likely disconnect) between the two. In brief, oddball Aquarius seems to float around on a wing and a prayer, whereas nothing could be more unattractive to a Taurus woman who wants to stay grounded at all costs.
Initially, their clashing approaches to life may play out well, as the old adage that opposites attract may ring true for this pair. For a while at least, until the magic wears off and the Taurus woman just wants a sense of grounded normality while the Aquarius man starts to yearn for another nomadic quest into the great unknown.
Emotionally, the Taurus woman and Aquarius man are often miles apart. Taurus wants financial security and a stable home life, while Aquarius cares little for the trappings of the material world as long as he has a cause to further. Taurus women tend towards conservativism in life as someone who has strongly held views and set routines, whereas the Aquarius man is out in the world on his own, forging his own path and dedicating his life to his own set of values. Neither stance is “better” than the other but combined this can often be a recipe for strife.
Where some couples may be able to escape to the bedroom to work out their issues, the Taurus woman and Aquarius man are hardly on the same page, even when it comes to sex. Sex is mostly simple for the Taurus woman – a pleasure to be enjoyed with little intellectual posturing necessary. She is sensual and indulgent. To the Aquarius man, sex is more about deep connections and the meeting of mind and body (but mostly mind), which the Taurus woman can find irritating and perhaps even inauthentic. Their sexual natures can leave them feeling a lack in the bedroom and lead them to look elsewhere for someone to satisfy them properly.

What to expect on a first date:
The Aquarius Man:
Aquarius men aren’t that interested in romance, which he regards as fluffy and a waste of his valuable time. As such, the Taurean woman should not expect flowers, chocolates, or public displays of affection. On a first date, she can expect the Aquarius man to fill her in on all his charitable works or projects, and to talk to her about all his lofty ideals and life lessons. If she can show interest or at least ask questions, he will consider her worthy of his time.
Taurus women don’t enjoy feeling hurried, and an Aquarius man is a human dynamo who wants to pack as much into his life as possible. On a first date, this can naturally result in friction, as the Taurus woman wants a slow, sensual, and unhurried meal as the wine and conversation flows, while the Aquarius man is more likely to be the kind of guy who says, “walk with me” as he shows you around his municipal gardening project. Don’t try and rush a Taurus woman on a first date and you will be in much better shape to get to go on a second!
For all their obvious differences, these two are both known for their laser-like focus (they’re both Fixed signs, after all), so when they join forces they are capable of moving mountains together, so long as they can agree on what common goal they are working towards. For the Taurus woman, hard work is justified if it is compensated with material rewards, so she will work hard to enjoy the fruits of her labor later. For the Aquarius man, he is only interested in dedicating his life to something meaningful, caring little for the financial compensation this may bring. If both can learn to be interested in the other one’s life, then this relationship does stand a chance of working out.
Before too long together, the blundering Bull will likely upset the free-spirited Water Barrer and all hell will break loose. Aquarius men hate to be tied down whereas a Taurus woman loves stability, so her naturally possessive nature will cause him all kinds of anxiety as he feels more and more suffocated by the minute. In turn, the Aquarius man will come across as unfocused and flighty to the Taurus woman, which will diminish his profile in her eyes.
Above all, Taurus wants an easy life and the Aquarius man’s ability to pick up all manner of peripheral characters along the way will annoy the Taurus woman to no end, especially when the Aquarius man invites his motley crew of friends round for the evening to disrupt the serene atmosphere of chateau Taurus.
For this to ever stand a chance of working there needs to be a massive compromise on both parts, begging the question of whether either of them can be truly happy.
Is this relationship likely to last?
Interestingly and perhaps surprisingly, this is one pairing that may actually last for quite a long time, although much of it is likely to be mired in misery. Despite their differences, both the Taurus woman and Aquarius man are notoriously stubborn, and neither will want to be the one to say that they got it wrong.
One area that sees a little more hope of success, however, is if these two agree to lead separate lives in which they pursue their own activities, only to come together when times are good. Not exactly a recipe for lasting happiness, but as good as it is likely to get with this astrological pairing.
How to attract a Taurus woman as an Aquarius man:
As an Aquarius man’s life is pretty much the polar opposite of a Taurus woman’s, the best recipe for success is to play to this natural difference and regale her with tales of your wanderlust induced escapades in the hope that she will be impressed. The Taurus woman can commonly be found at home pursuing low key activities and pottering around in her own world, so a glimpse of a more exciting way of life may spark her interest, initially at least.
How to Attract an Aquarius Man as a Taurus woman:
It may sound strange, but try to keep the personal out of it, and instead discuss causes and issues close to the Aquarius man’s heart. Just try to temper your forceful political opinions and world views slightly if possible. The Aquarius man’s entire identity is mixed up in whatever organization, charity, or foundation he is working for, and this will most likely be one with a deep humanitarian cause at the center of it, so make sure that you acknowledge his work in the community and show an interest in what he’s doing.
