Astrology is one of those things that people are either really into or not interested in at all. If you are reading this article, you probably fall into the former category. What zodiac sign you were born under and the sign of your significant other can mean a lot of things for your relationship. Some signs are simply not compatible with one another and these relationships are usually short lived and full of drama and stress for both people involved. Other signs seem like they were made for each other and are simply a match made in heaven. If you want to find the perfect love, you must find the guy with the zodiac sign that is most compatible with yours. Of course, many factors are involved in making a relationship work, but seeing if your zodiac signs are compatible can tell you just how good of a match you are right from the start.
Let's start with the basics. There are 12 zodiac signs and they are:
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Virgo ( August 23-September 22)
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Each zodiac sign has a symbol that represents it:
Aries: The Ram
Taurus: The Bull
Gemini: The Twin
Cancer: The Crab
Leo: The Lion
Virgo: The Virgin
Libra: The Scales
Scorpio: The Scorpion
Sagittarius: The Archer
Capricorn: The Goat
Aquarius: The Water Bearer
Pisces: The Fish
Next, the 12 zodiac signs can be divided into four groups depending on the element they belong to (Water, Air, Earth, or Fire)
Water signs are: Scorpio, Cancer, and Pisces
Air signs are: Aquarius, Libra, and Gemini
Earth signs are: Capricorn, Virgo, and Taurus
Fire signs are: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius
Generally speaking, you are most compatible with signs who have the same element as you. For example, I am an Aquarius, so I am most compatible with a Libra, Gemini, or another Aquarius. Through personal experience in relationships and friendships, I have found that I get along best with people of my own element which is Air. Before I ever knew much about astrology, I have always been drawn towards Libras, Geminis, and other Aquarius. Now looking back, I see that this happened because we are very similar in many characteristics such as independence, loving to talk, and having ideas that are very ahead of their time. Many fellow Aquarians are talk show hosts such as Oprah and Ellen Degeneres. I told you we liked to talk!
Now, just because your zodiac signs aren't compatible doesn't mean that a relationship will never work out, it just means you have your work set out for you and you might have to put in a lot of effort and it won't come naturally like it could with another sign that is more compatible with yours.
On the other hand, some signs should never be together because they simply are too stubborn or different to make it work. For example, Scorpios are a very difficult sign for most people to get along with. They can be jealous, secretive, and dark. Scorpios are most compatible with other water signs. Leos are a very strong sign that can be in a relationship with Scorpios. Other signs have a very difficult time with Scorpios because they can be intense and stubborn, but a relationship could be worth it if you like them enough because they can be loyal partners when you have earned their trust. If you are a Cancer, a Pisces, or another Scorpio, you have the best chance of compatibility with a Scorpio, but other signs could still try if you feel they are the one for you.
These are some characteristics of each zodiac sign:
Aries: Determined, self-confident, courageous, and impatient
Taurus: Dependable, patient, stubborn, and practical
Gemini: Curious, affectionate, kind, nervous, and a short attention span
Cancer: Sensitive, insecure, compassionate, and and manipulative
Leo: Passionate, Arrogant, confident, creative, and generous
Virgo: Shy, workaholic, loyal, worrywart, and practical
Libra: Social, lover of beautiful things, gracious, and indecisive
Scorpio: Brave, self-confident, resourceful, ambitious, and secretive
Sagittarius: Funny, generous, impatient, blabbermouth, and loves to travel
Capricorn: Disciplined, responsible, unforgiving, and condescending
Aquarius: Independent, progressive, original, uncompromising, and aloof
Pisces: Compassionate, intuitive, wise, overly trusting, and fearful
Each sign is also ruled by one or more planets which determines the characteristics that those born under the sign will display:
Aries is ruled by the planet Mars which makes sense because Aries is a fire sign and Mars is known as the Red Planet because of its coloring
Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus
Gemini is ruled by Mercury
Cancer is ruled by the Moon
Leo is ruled by the Sun
Virgo is ruled by Mercury
Libra is ruled by Venus
Scorpio is ruled by Pluto and Mars
Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter
Capricorn is ruled by Saturn
Aquarius is ruled by Uranus and Saturn
Pisces is ruled by Neptune and Jupiter
It is also possible to be compatible with a sign that whose elements are compatible with each other. For example, Air and Fire are compatible because Fire needs Air to exist so therefore Air signs and Fire signs are usually good together.
Fire and Water are never compatible because water puts out the fire so Fire and Water signs will have a difficult if not impossible to handle relationship.
This is not an exact science but a fun way to see if you have a chance of being compatible with your partner or not. Have you ever met someone and you just clicked right away? That is probably because your zodiac signs were compatible with each other!
Now let's check out some favorite celebrity couples and their zodiac sign compatibility:
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie: He's a Sagittarius and she's a Gemini so Fire and Air=It works!
Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell: She's Scorpio and he's a Pisces=It works!
Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg: She's a Scorpio and he's a Leo=It works with these two strong signs!
Beyonce and Jay-Z: She's a Virgo and he's a Sagittarius=It works because she's the ground for his fire!
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West: She's a Libra and he's a Gemini=It works!
Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake: She's a Sagittarius and he's an Aquarius=It should work because fire needs air but it sure didn't for them!
Britney Spears and Kevin Federline: She's a Sagittarius and he's an Aries=It should work but I guess there was too much fire here!
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck: She's an Aries and he's a Leo=It should work but I guess it was volatile, too much fire!
Marilyn Monroe and John F. Kennedy: She's a Gemini and he's a Gemini=It should work but I guess there were too many twins here!
Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams: She's a Scorpio and he's a Scorpio=It should work but I guess they were just too intense for each other. I'm not giving up though, I hope they get together again in the future. Their chemistry in The Notebook is just too strong to be forgotten.
Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore: He's an Aquarius and she's a Scorpio=It doesn't work, he's air she's water, not compatible.
Katy Perry and Russell Brand: She's a Scorpio and he's a Gemini= It doesn't work, water and air aren't compatible.
