Taurus Rat Compatibility (Love & Friendship)
The biggest challenge Taurus Rats have is that they must be careful that their ambition does not overwhelm or supersede their relationships. This is a sign that enjoys being social, especially because they often spend a great deal of their working time alone or focused strictly on their goals.

Socializing is one of the few times that Taurus Rats will allow themselves to do so.
Taurus Rats won’t have much trouble finding potential mates. Where they will have trouble is sharing their time and energy between their goals and a relationship. Those who wish to partner up with a member of this sign will have to understand and accept the fact that Taurus Rats need time to themselves to tend to what is important to them (usually their career). Partners should equally be aware that they will most likely have to end up forcing some sense of balance into their mate’s life. This is the kind of partner that Taurus Rats need in order to live a stable and content life. Unfortunately young Taurus Rats tend to be a bit superficial. Most members of this sign will not be ready for a partner until they have seen some age, experience, and success.
Taurus Rat Business (Career & Goals)
The ambitious Taurus Rat often knows exactly what he or she wants to do with his or her life. The “big picture” idea may hit suddenly, but it is almost always a natural extension of a person’s skills, talents, and interests. Those who don’t have a career in mind should not worry, for this is a sign that can succeed in just about any field. The only key ingredient should be a passion for the accomplishments the work can bring, or a passion for the work itself.
That said, there are a handful of careers that are tailor-made for this combination of zodiac signs. While most Taurus Rats are adept at business in general, most also share a particular passion for fundraising. Taurus Rats are great with money and are perfect fits as financial advisers. They also enjoy auctions and auctioneering, particularly in the not-for-profit field or in the world of art and antiques.
It’s worth mentioning that many Taurus Rats are naturally gifted musicians, particularly as singers and songwriters. Ironically, this may be the most challenging field for this ambitious and capable sign to succeed in monetarily and professionally.
