At heart, Gemini is more versatile, while Taurus is more down to earth. On the other hand, Gemini is essentially articulate, versatile and adroit. Put another way, Gemini likes variety. Gemini is an idea person. Gemini's mind naturally likes to go from subject to subject.
At times, Taurus may feel like Gemini has not one, but at least two different personalities.
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.
Gemini has varied interests and likes to keep up with what's going on in the world. Gemini can be the original "quick study" who grasps facts, concepts and ideas. On the other hand, Gemini can get bored easily and does not like things to drag along. Gemini needs open lines of communication. The best friends for Gemini are the ones who appreciate Gemini's sense of humour.
Gemini likes to talk and can jump rapidly from one topic to the next in rapid succession. Taurus, on the other hand, likes to methodically digest one topic at a time, and quickly gets "mental indigestion" from Gemini's fast-paced conversation. When faced with an important decision, for example, Taurus would benefit by taking a quiet walk in the woods or along the beach, while Gemini needs to talk with someone. You must learn to respect each other's different styles, or you will certainly get in each other's way.
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."
