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
The Rat and the Horse may run into problems. While both are very social, witty and energetic, the Rat needs a circle of friends and the Horse needs independence. This difference in needs will create a great deal of tension. They may not be able to maintain a great love life for more than a short while. Their overall compatibility rating is 20%.
The free spirited Horse is the Chinese Zodiac's wanderer. Horses need their independence and freedom. They are packed with energy and constantly moving from one activity to another. Horses are good with money and, of course, have a passion for travel.
Paradoxically, Horses desire love, which can lead them to feel ensnared. The rawness of their sex appeal is like a magnet and makes it easy for Horses to find love. Horses are skilled at the art of seduction. However, their relationships are unpredictable because their behavior is so erratic and they may flee without notice. Blessed with a keen wit and powerful presence, Horses love to show off to a crowd. Despite the strength of their being, Horses feel inferior to those around them.
Horses are not a patient lot. They can be quite impulsive and more than a little insensitive to the feelings of others. These self-reliant beings follow their whims through life, which explains why their paths are often littered with unfinished relationships, jobs and ventures. Conversely, Horses motivate others easily and often do reach their goals.
