Taurus Cancer compatibility?
When people ask “As a Taurus – will I be compatible with a Cancer man” or “Or as a Taurus – will I be compatible with a Cancer woman” generally they are referring to their sun sign because that is all they know about. 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!
In Western Astrology you are considered Cancer if you are born between (and including) June 21 to July 22. But in Vedic Astrology Cancer sun is from July 16 to August 17. So often you may be a Cancer in Western Astrology, but in Vedic Astrology (because it also considers the north and south nodes of the moon), you may not be a Cancer sun at all. It is pushed back three weeks, so you may actually be a Gemini sun. So if you were a Cancer in Western Astrology, you will only remain one if you were born between and including July 16 to July 22. But if you thought you were a Leo, you may now be a Cancer!
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 year you were born, the day you were born and the time (in hours and minutes). In some countries 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 a Taurus rising?
The main qualities of Taurus (called “Vrishabha” in Sanskrit) are:
- Not angry for long.
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 the qualities of a Cancer ascendent?
The main qualities of Cancer (called “Kataka” in Sanskrit) are:
- Doesn’t walk in a straight line
- Sensitive on the heart level
The Lord (controller) of the Cancer sign is the Moon (called “Chandra” in Sanskrit). So this house is also affected by how happily the Moon 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 Taurus Cancer compatibility.
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.
What are Cancer ascendents like in terms of their ability to love and date?
Like the crab that is their symbol, Cancer people tend to have a soft emotional side hidden beneath their exterior. Their home and family life is very important to them, although they do tend to keep it private.
If you are dating someone with a Cancer or 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 dominance or power 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.
If you are a single Taurian or single Cancer, why fall in love, only to find out you are not compatible?
Dating and going out with someone can involve a lot of time, emotions and commitment. Why waste all that energy and risk possibly even damaging your finest level of feelings for the wrong person? Join our Compatibility Club and we will find a match for you that is compatible. Then you can slowly get to know them and fall in love over time. This is the Eastern approach to love rather than the Western approach which is often largely based on lust and not much else.
Find Taurus singles, Cancer singles and members with rising signs that are compatible with yours
As we mentioned above, the person you may be the best match with could be a totally different sign. Their ascendent or sun sign could be totally different to the one you thought you were most compatible with. It is far more complex and nuanced and the outcomes are often far more profound.
