Are our romantic destinies written in the stars? Love is a tricky if complicated terrain of unpredictable twists and turns—sort of like a maze. Your zodiac sign can at least provide some semblance of a road to navigate you through. What sign you were born under can help determine how well your traits mix with the nuanced personalities of the potential partner you’re going to meet!
Ruled by the planet Mars and symbolized by the goat, Aries are fire signs that are best known for their confident nature. They can display natural leadership qualities which makes them highly motivated. They are action-oriented and set the ball running on most things, so they need other signs to match this determination and ambition!
When it comes to love, Aries rely on directness and high energy to initiate their compatibility. Air signs generally make for good matches, especially when it comes to Libra, which is a case of opposites attract. They are most compatible with Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius, and Aquarius signs, as each one stimulates Aries’ energy and excitement. Their least compatible signs are Cancer and Capricorn.
The earth sign guided by the planet Venus, those born under the Taurus season are well-regarded as stoic and patient. They prefer to be a soothing and grounded personality, but this can often times make them stubborn. Their down to earth nature has them constantly seeking out leisure, relaxation, and comfort.
With other signs, their strongest love compatibility is with Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, and Pisces. This is because these signs have a like-minded approach to sex and communication that the Taurus appreciates. The least compatible signs are considered to be Leo and Aquarius.
Wit and charm are the defining desires of the air sign, Gemini, ruled by Mercury. They are extremely adaptable, making their constant changeability a survival skill in social and physical situations. This often gives them additional perspectives to think about and, as a result, Gemini signs have a lot to say that gives them a lively and talkative reputation.
Gemini signs are most compatible with Aries, Leos, Libras, and Aquarius because these signs can handle their abrupt changeability, superficial nature, and impulsive behavior. Gemini signs get bored very quickly which often makes Virgo and Pisces the signs that absolutely cannot handle Gemini impatience. Geminis should not seek people who cannot handle a boring conversation and cannot express themselves.
Nurturing and emotionally intuitive are the Cancer water signs, ruled by the Moon, as they have the most “mother-hen” or “big brother” traits of all the signs. Love means a lot to them, as they journey deep into their hearts and emotions to figure out if the person they choose is definitely going to be the right one for them. They’re the most intuitive of the signs and as a result, choose someone who complements these qualities.
Their best pairing is usually with Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio, and Pisces. The least compatible signs are considered to be Aries and Libra.
Leos are fire signs that are ruled by the Sun and are usually very popular. They are very active and like to keep busy, meaning they can be social butterflies! They have a desire for passion in their life and, by extension, their love life. Like Geminis, they need to be entertained and kept interested. But unlike Geminis, Leos demand to be the center of attention rather than slip into the role.
Leos are loyal partners that desire a partner that treats them with admiration and respect! They need praise which makes Aries, Gemini, Libra, and Sagittarius the right signs for them. Their least compatible signs are Taurus and Scorpio.
Virgos are earth signs ruled by the planet Mercury and are characterized by their analytical, intellectual and rational traits! When a Virgo put their mind to something or someone, they will commit. They will be very generous with their time and effort just to help with their partner’s convenience. They do not do things recklessly nor carelessly so spontaneous messiness is not their strongest environment.
The Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, and Capricorn signs are most compatible with Virgo’s logical and precarious approach to life. Gemini and Sagittarius are least compatible given they cannot mix well with Virgo’s innate uneasiness.
The most flirty of the signs, Libras are air signs ruled by Venus make their reputation in peace and friendliness. They are the most “lovers not fighters” of the Zodiac and often prefer to please others before themselves. Libras are overtly romantic and attempt to be harmonic with everyone around them. Because Libras are always so nice to others, you need to pay extra attention to them to tell if they’re super interested in you!
The signs most compatible with a Libra are Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius, and Aquarius! These signs tend to appreciate Libra’s empathetic and charming demeanor the most. The signs least equipped for them are Cancer and Capricorn, who provide more disruptions in a Libra’s abode than harmony.
Ruled by Pluto and Mars, the water signs that are Scorpios have a reputation for being aloof and ambiguous with their feelings. They are naturally always burying their true feelings about something, so it takes a while to dig them out! When they do show emotion, it’s intense. It’s powerful and domineering and can make them come off as either your back-up or your babysitter.
Scorpio’s most compatible signs are considered to be Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, and Pisces, who have the patience to stick around to see what a Scorpio’s true character is. The least compatible signs with Scorpio are Leo and Aquarius.
Fun-loving and creative Sagittarius is governed by Jupiter and is a fire sign. They seek adventure and thrills, making them a very daring sign. They are very independent and curious gives them a highly energetic and positive approach to life and people. Sagittarius signs desire boundless opportunity, which means they seek people who do not restrict them.
Aries, Leo, Libra, and Aquarius are the signs that most compliment Sagittarius by going along with their open-roam lifestyle. The least compatible signs are Virgo and Pisces, whose caution may often get in the way of a Sagittarius’ ambitions.
Glory-bound are the Capricorn lovers, reigned over by Saturn and signified as an earth sign. Success, whether it be in academia, wealth, fame, or personal interest, is always the top priority for these over-achievers. Capricorns can be caught up in their own endeavors that it is hard for them to fall in love. Who they seek out will be a partner that helps them realize their goal for stability. After all, success might be their mission in life, but it’s the stability that comes after it that they truly want.
Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio, and Pisces are Capricorn’s most compatible signs, adding fuel to their passion. They are least compatible with Aries and Libra.
The water sign of Aquarius, with Uranus as its planetary ruler, is among the most independent and friendliest of the Zodiac. Aquarius signs are very honest to others but are generally uncomfortable with their own emotions. They love the company of other people and falling in love for them is easy. Staying in love is a bit harder. They are a prickly bunch to get a handle on. But once there is one, Aquarius will be very loyal and adventurous partners.
Aquarius’ most compatible signs are Aries, Gemini, Libra, and Sagittarius due to their friendly and outgoing natures. They are the least compatible with Taurus and Scorpio.
Neptune guides the water sign of Pisces. Pisces are daydreamers and intuitive, making their domain in the realm of emotion and spirituality. This makes them very visionary and wondersome. They love the abstract and creative visions. Because they’re such inward personalities, Pisces will desire a partner who “gets” them, someone who can understand them as deep as they do themselves.
Pisces is really most compatible with Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, and Capricorn because of the way these signs can let a Pisces play out their romantic fantasies. Gemini and Sagittarius, on the other hand, are least compatible.
