Find your compatibility
Western Star Signs
Both of you are essentially gentle, with a tendency to avoid confrontation and conflict if at all possible. Loyalty to home and family run strong in both of you, and you are both rather attached to things as they are; you resist changes and are not overly fond of surprises. Security is important to you both, and you both give your friends a lot of support and help when needed. Cancer is more emotional, sensitive, and easily upset than Taurus is; Taurus is more steady and even-tempered. You are likely to get along very, very well.
On the other hand, Cancer is a good person who needs to deal with family and emotional issues. Cancer's hugs are world class and Cancer's snuggles are second to none. Cancer is naturally inclined to be touchy about some, but not all relatives, and needs to work on the family tree and make some sense of it all.
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.
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."
Cancer is not necessarily the most direct individual. Security is something Cancer is always aware of. Usually it's a top priority. Cancer is definitely strong and protective of turf.

Chinese Star Signs
These two make a great pair as long as they share the same ambitions. As lovers they can be a very satisfying match. Their overall compatibility rating is 70%.
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.
Note that Chinese star signs are determined by your exact date of birth, and not just your birth year. For more information, read about the Chinese Zodiac »
