Taurus Gemini compatibility?
When people ask “As a Taurus – will I be compatible with a Gemini man” or “Or as aa Taurus – will I be compatible with a Gemini 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 a Gemini if you are born between May 21 to (and including) June 21. But in Vedic Astrology Gemini sun is from June 15th to July 16th. So often you may be a Gemini in Western Astrology, but in Vedic Astrology (because it also considers the north and south nodes of the moon), you may not be a Gemini sun at all. It is pushed back three weeks, so you may actually be a Pisces sun. So if you were a Gemini in Western Astrology, you will only remain one if you were born between and including June 15 to June 21. But if you thought you were a Cancer, you may now be a Gemini!
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 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 and about Taurus Gemini compatibility.
What are the qualities of a Gemini ascendent?
The main qualities of Gemini (called “Mithuna” in Sanskrit) are:

The Lord (controller) of the Gemini sign is Mercury (called “Budha” in Sanskrit). So this house is also affected by how happily Mercury 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 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 Gemini ascendents like in terms of their ability to love and date?
Like twins, Geminis like to play and have fun, so this can make having a relationship with them very enjoyable. Sometimes this can be the case in the bedroom as well. However, because of their attraction to duality, sometimes they may be as attracted to their job as they are to you.
If you are dating someone with a Gemini 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 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.
