Taurus and Leo differences
The pride of a Lion is a personality trait the Taurus native dislikes. What irritates a Taurus person is a Leo native’s desperate need to beat their own drums. To the former, a Leo seeks attention like no other. They look for the company of those who could pamper and praise them for every little thing that they do.
Leos cannot appreciate those who fail to express their gratitude or make them feel at the top of the world. This constant longing for admirers can put them in a fierce battle of ego with the Taurus natives. Taurus is quite self-focused, relatively demanding lesser accolades or fame as compared to a Leo or perhaps not at all. Leo's self-esteem is so high that when it forgets the value of humility, he is sure to trigger a Taurus native. Leo men or women could turn vindictive when they fail or their hopes crushed by those they trust.
Taurus men and women are smart but they like to maintain a low key nature. They would gracefully handle a situation as long as they do not feel threatened or their knowledge is challenged. Where the Taurus may lack is their inability to reciprocate equally to the grandiose gestures of the Leo friend. While Taurus will take time to come to a conclusion only after he has weighed the pros and cons; the fiery, quick-tempered Leo may never give someone a second chance once betrayed.
Taurus may seem distant and reserved. That's because they like to test the waters before they dive in. However, Leo is friendlier and loves the company of people as long as they don't threaten his might or prized possessions.
The best way to mitigate conflict is to keep a communication channel open. There is definitely some compromise to be made in this friendship as well just like those between any other zodiac signs. If they leave their differences aside and look at a situation impartially and accept their mistakes, they could build a mighty empire together.
