Aries Taurus compatibility?
When people ask “As an Aries – will I be compatible with a Taurus man” or “Or as an Aries – will I be compatible with a Taurus woman” generally they are referring to their sun sign because that is all they know about. In Western Astrology you are considered Aries if you are born between (and including) March 21 – April 19. But in Vedic Astrology Aries sun is from April 14 to May 14. So often you may be an Aries in Western Astrology, but in Vedic Astrology (because it also considers the north and south nodes of the moon), you may not be an Aries sun at all. It is pushed back three weeks, so you may actually be a Pisces sun. So if you were an Aries in Western Astrology, you will only remain one if you were born between and including April 14th to April 19th. But if you thought you were a Taurus, you may now be an Aries!
In Western Astrology Taurus is from April 20 to May 21. In Vedic Astrology Taurus Sun signs are from May 15 to June 15. It is pushed back three weeks, so you may actually be an Aries sun. So if you were a Taurus in Western Astrology, you will only remain one if you were born between and including May 15th to May 21st. But if you thought you were a Gemini, you may now be a Taurus!
Dating and marriage compatibility depends more on the ascendent / rising sign
In Vedic Astrology, your sun sign isn’t considered very important. It is more important what your ascendent (also called your “rising sign” or “Lagna”) is. This is calculated based on the day you were born, the year you were born and the time (in hours and minutes). Sometimes you can find your time of birth on your birth certificate. In other cases you may need to contact the hospital to find out. Of course, sometimes hospitals don’t record this information very accurately (generally they write it down a little after you were actually born), so a Vedic Astrology rectification is recommended. Contact us if you would like to be put in touch with a Vedic Astrologer who can do this.
What are the qualities of an Aries rising?
The main features of Aries (called “Mesha” in Sanskrit) are:
- Active / dynamic
- A tendency to not be patient
- Ambitious and likes to be a pioneer
- Authority or Leader
- Restless and doesn’t like to live a long time in one place
- Aggressive, but easily pleased.
The Lord (controller) of the Aries sign is Mars (called “Mangal” in Sanskrit). So this house is also affected by how happily Mars is placed in your chart and the sign in which it is situated.
However, these qualities can be reduced by the effects of other areas of your chart. Please Contact Us if you would like to be put in touch with a Vedic Astrologer (also called a Jyotishi) who can tell you more about your chart and about Aries Taurus compatibility.
What are the qualities of a Taurus ascendent?
The main qualities of Taurus (called “Vrishabha” in Sanskrit) are:
- Sharp intellect
- Practical and often able to focus on earning money
- A lover of food

The Lord (controller) of the Taurus sign is Venus (called “Shukra” in Sanskrit). So this house is also affected by how happily Venus is placed in your chart and the sign in which it is situated.
However, these qualities can be reduced by the effects of other areas of your chart. Please Contact Us if you would like to be put in touch with a Vedic Astrologer (also called a Jyotishi) who can tell you more about your chart.
What are Aries ascendents like in terms of their ability to love and date?
Like the ram that is their symbol, Aries people tend to have a lot of drive and intensity. If they feel they are being held back in any way, this can lead to frustration and even anger. Later in life, if they slow down and consolidate, generally they will be more successful. So if you want to love an Aries ascendent, you have to give them some freedom to roam.
What are Taurus ascendents like in terms of their ability to love and date?
Like the bull that is their symbol, Taurus people are strong either mentally or physically. Although they are slow to become angry, if they do, they are a force to be reckoned with. If you want to love a Taurus ascendent, cooking for them (or taking them to a great restaurant) may be the way to their heart. They have a tendency to hide their own individuality for the sake of the relationship, but don’t let them do this as it won’t be healthy for them in the long run. So try and draw them out.
If you are dating someone with a Taurus sun sign (according to Western Astrology), find out if you are both compatible astrologically
Many aspects of a person’s chart affect who they are (e.g. their ascendent and the house and sign their moon is in). So to really know if you will be compatible with them, the best way to tell is to have a Vedic Astrology Compatibility Report based on both of your birth times. It look at all aspects of your life together such as:
- how you both approach work
- whether there will be power or dominance issues in your relationship
- whether being together will help you both be healthier
- your sexual attraction
- whether you could produce happy children
- whether you will grow in wealth together
- how much love and harmony there will be between you both.
