Taurus Scorpio compatibility?
When people ask “As a Taurus – will I be compatible with a Scorpio man” or “Or as a Taurus – will I be compatible with a Scorpio 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 Scorpio if you are born between (and including) October 24th – November 22nd. But in Vedic Astrology Scorpio sun is from November 16th – December 16th. So often you may be a Scorpio in Western Astrology, but in Vedic Astrology (because it also considers the north and south nodes of the moon), you may not be a Scorpio sun at all. It is pushed back three weeks, so you may actually be a Libra sun. So if you were a Scorpio in Western Astrology, you will only remain one if you were born between and including November 16th to November 22nd. But if you thought you were a Sagittarius, you may now be a Scorpio!
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, day and time you were born (in hours and minutes). In some places 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 Scorpio compatibility.
What are Scorpio ascendent qualities?
The main qualities of Scorpio (called “Vrischika” in Sanskrit) are:
- Lover of luxury
- Good writer
- Good communicator
The Lord (controller) of the Scorpio 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.
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 Scorpio ascendents like in terms of their ability to love and date?
Like the scorpion that is their symbol, Scorpios are a little rigid at times. So let them choose where to meet. But wear something sexy as that attracts them.
If you are dating someone with a Scorpio 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 you will grow in wealth together
- whether there will be power or dominance issues in your relationship
- whether being together will help you both be healthier
- whether you could produce happy children
- your sexual attraction
- how much love and harmony there will be between you both.
