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.
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 needs some good food, antique furniture and passion.
Gemini has varied interests and likes to keep up with what's going on in the world. Gemini can be the original "quick study" who grasps facts, concepts and ideas. On the other hand, Gemini can get bored easily and does not like things to drag along. Gemini needs open lines of communication. The best friends for Gemini are the ones who appreciate Gemini's sense of humour.
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.
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."

This is a mating of opposites. The Rat is bright, gregarious, witty and fun, the Ox is shy, serious, and set in their ways. As lovers fireworks can be expected. They will test each other's endurance over and over again. Their overall compatibility rating is 60%.
The Chinese Astrological Ox is neither slow witted nor clumsy. These powerful, dependable beings were meant to lead. While their approach to fulfilling a task may be slow and methodical, they are capable of great things and never lose sight of their goals. Their stamina is endless and they are detail conscious. They believe in getting things right the first time.
To outsiders Oxen may seem to be too serious and unable to "let their hair down." Being introverts, these are easy assumptions to make about Oxen. Also they are very independent and appear to have no regard for what others think of them. However, hidden behind that distant air shown to the world, is a being that feels pain, loneliness and regret that they do not connect well with others.
The Oxen's comforts and delights are derived from friends and family and work well done. As a friend, lover or family member the Ox makes a reliable and protective ally who is always tender and affectionate.
When away from the family and out in the world the Ox can be stubborn and dogmatic. They are not ones to back down or take much guff from anyone.
The Ox is a good source of honest advice.
The Ox needs to try to be less quick to judge others. When they see the value of those who have qualities different than their own they are well on their way to a warmer social life.
