When Taurus and Leo form a friendship, they often become a sort of mutual admiration society. They understand each other's needs well. Taurus needs affection, to be loved and cherished, while Leo likes compliments and wants to be adored and admired. They are both strongly loyal and are often possessive of each other. Both friends are able to provide what the other needs because their desires are so similar.
Both the Taurus and the Leo friend like comfort and luxury, often doing things on a grand scale. They both enjoy status and possessions. Leo tends to be flamboyant, which Taurus will like -- Leo is bigger and better and grand, the very personification of status and luxury. Because both Signs are so determined, these friends really need to work to understand and accept each other.
Taurus is ruled by the Planet Venus, and Leo is ruled by the Sun. The Sun is about ego and self, and it radiates warmth and light. Leo indeed radiates this kind of energy and enthusiasm. Venus is about love, beauty, and luxury; together this combination of masculine and feminine energy is why they admire and sustain each other. Interestingly, Venus is never more than 48 degrees from the Sun so they belong near each other! The Sun represents life, and Venus represents love; as long as they are careful to understand each other, their combination is a positive one.
Taurus is an Earth Sign, and Leo is a Fire Sign. Both are ambitious -- but in different ways. Leo wants fame and fortune, while Taurus yearns for security and stability. Both Signs want to be the boss, and they may have a number of arguments over this bone of contention. Often they will fail to agree. As long as they reassure each other that their friendship is important to both of them, their conflicts can usually be resolved.
Taurus and Leo are both Fixed Signs. Both can be inflexible and fixed in opinion. Both tend to push on determinedly when working toward their goals. If they have a plan, it won't be discarded halfway through. They usually share a distrust of change, preferring life to be stable and steady. Once they have decided that the friendship is a true one, they will never be dissuaded from that knowledge and will be completely devoted to their connection. If they have differing ideas, they may find themselves in a never-ending tug-of-war. Taurus won't bend because they see it as allowing themselves to be pushed around, and Leo may see Taurus as being too stubborn. Taurus is more quietly determined than Leo, though, and they -- to a degree -- give in to avoid all-out war when it seems practical to do so.
The best aspect of the Taurus-Leo friendship is their mutual admiration of one another. Both Signs have very powerful personalities, so neither will dominate the other -- no matter how hard they try! They are seen as compatible by others, and their mutual commitment to fulfilling their goals makes theirs a friendship of great teamwork.
