What’s the most confusing and wonderful thing in life? Love. And getting it right even after you find the one is harder.
Some people believe that love compatibility is some mystical thing and that the Zodiac has something to do with whether or not their relationship is successful. We don’t believe this is true, but people have looked to the stars for direction for thousands of years.
In ancient Egypt and ancient China, there are some indicators that civilizations had begun linking their spirit with signs from the galaxy.
Since the second millennium BC, Sumerian and Babylonian civilizations have been tracking the stars and planets.
By the time that Alexander the Great conquered Egypt, many of the beliefs surrounding the stars began to come together, forming the earliest recordings of the astrological practices that many of still subscribe to today.
In the modern world, some people look to astrology for hints about the week ahead, insights into their personality, and to find out what’s in the stars for their love life.
Given the confusing and glorious enigma that love presents in our lives, it’s no wonder that some people are drawn to astrology’s romantic foretellings, regardless of whether it’s real or not.
Love Compatibility (According to the Stars)
Simply the fact that astrology has been around for so many years tends to lend to its’ credibility. So much, in fact, that you’re likely to find your zodiac-based horoscope in all of the major newspapers to this day.
Why we love who we love, and where our romance will lead, is consistently one of life’s greatest mysteries in each of our lives.
Perhaps, the answers can be found in zodiac compatibility. At least, there have been many astrologers who think this to be true over the years.
Even if the idea of star-matched love seems crazy to you, is there anything that’s truly logical when it comes to love? Why wouldn’t it at least be worth considering this silly nonsense, right?
So, if you’ve been struggling for answers to your love life, maybe your zodiac compatibility will give you the nod from the universe you’ve been looking for.
Aries is a fire sign and a natural-born leader. So, Aries should steer clear of others who might compete for the lead, which include Libra, Cancer, and Capricorn signs.
Typically, the best love matches for Arians are wind-Air or fellow Fire signs. Their most compatible love matches are most likely Gemini, Aquarius, Leo, and Sagittarius.
Occasionally when Mars and Venus align, Aries can hit it off with Libra-born partners, but this relationship tends to require a little more work.
Taureans are practical Earth signs who appreciate the beauty in life. Their stubborn streak isn’t a match for Leos or Aquarius signs, who also aren’t afraid to butt heads to get their way.
Capricorn and Virgo-born lovers are often enchanted by Taurus’s complex love of luxury and romanticism.
Oddly enough, passion-filled Scorpios might also make a good Taurus love partner, but this match isn’t the norm.
Gemini is witty and intellectual, making them attractive to a variety of signs, including Libra and Aquarius. But, Gemini’s attraction is strongest with signs of opposing Sagittarius.
In fact, the Gemini-Sagittarius pairings are one of the most dynamic and bold of the bunch.
Gemini is often turned off by the hot and cold tendencies of Scorpio signs.
These water creatures are deep and sensitive, slow to trust, and full of natural-born intuition. Scorpio and Pisces both are drawn to Cancer’s resistance to vulnerability.
But, Capricorn is a perfect long-term partner, as they share Cancer’s need for establishing a safe and secure domestic base.
Cancer and Aquarius love matches can prove too conflicting, due to Cancer’s conservative traits versus Aquarians’ fun and unconventional ways.
Leo’s need to be the center of attention and love for adventure make Sagittarius and Aries, both also Fire signs, good romantic partners.
Taurus and Scorpios are most often turned off by Leo’s brazen approach. Aquarius, however, while opposite, may provide balance and can turn out to be a fitting, albeit unlikely, love interest for Leo.
Virgo’s strict intellectual tendencies pique the interest of fellow Earth signs, Capricorn and Taurus. And, opposite Pisces can strike a just-right balance with Virgo.
But, Virgo’s neuroticism often proves to be too much for Gemini and Sagittarius, who may be too quick to find fault in Virgo’s unusual ways.
Libra signs exude charm and class, which attracts art-loving Aquarius and the refined tastes of Geminis.
However, Libra’s need for social acceptance can be a turn off for Capricorn and Cancer signs. And, the independent personality of Aries-born individuals often results in a clashing of ways with a Libra’s spirit.
Passion-filled and impulsive, Scorpio is embraced by Cancer and Pisces lovers. Scorpio’s are known for their insatiable sexuality which can be best met by a sensual and romantic Taurean partner.
Leos and Aquarians may find Scorpio too intense and evasive for their personalities.
Natural adventurers and philosophers, Sagittarius attracts the likes of Aries and Leo, who are both drawn to the tenacious humor of Sags.
Gemini can also prove to be a good romantic match, as both signs enjoy an action-packed and vibrant lifestyle.
Virgo and Pisces might have their feelings easily hurt if they find themselves at the helm of Sagittarian humor.
Stability and security are what a Capricorn craves most, so don’t expect them to pair well with free-spirited, flighty lovers.
Taurus and Virgo’s traditional and romantic style often fits the Capricorn perfectly.
Libra and Capricorn might become exhausted by one another’s opposing traits, and this relationship tends to fizzle fast. Similarly, Aries doesn’t bode well with Capricorn’s stoic nature.
Aquarians are natural intellects, drawn to a humanitarian lifestyle, and interested in the bigger picture of things. Gemini and Libra find Aquarius lovers endearing and complimentary of their own interests in life.
Taurus and Scorpio signs might interpret Aquarians as self-righteous and irritating.
Leo, although opposite from Aquarius in many ways, can be an interesting wild card that actually works from a romantic perspective.
Sweet, creative Pisces often find their soul mate in supportive, caring Virgo signs.
Meanwhile, Gemini and Sagittarius are quick to inflict wounds on gentle Pisces, and they may become frustrated with Pisces extreme sensitivity.
