If you've ever looked at a celebrity couple and thought, "What are they doing together?" you might've been surprised to find out that they're actually compatible on an astrological level. That's the crazy thing about astrology signs: sometimes the signs you'd least expect to get together actually create a successful relationship.
An example is celebrity couple Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx, who are both born under the Sagittarius sign. While that might seem to be a reason why they'd clash, it actually works in their favor and creates a relationship filled with fireworks!
On the other hand, a celebrity couple like Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. might seem to be a match made in heaven (and they're still going strong after 15 years of being married!), but they're actually not astrology compatible. That's because Sarah's an Aries and Freddie's a Pisces. Their union is known as "the hothead and the dreamer," which can cause a lot of stress in their relationship. However, they're proof that you shouldn't let astrology incompatibilities limit love!
Often, there are ways to work around the obstacles and difficulties. Here are 12 celebrity couples who produce astrology magic, and 12 that don't have lifelong love written in their fate without blood, sweat, and lots of tears!
24 Soulmates: Kim Kardashian West & Kanye West
Kim is a Libra while Kanye's a Gemini. They have a great relationship based on intellectual interests and since they're both Air signs, they're very compatible. As reported by Astrology, Libra loves art and beauty - as can be seen with how Kim always looks flawless from head to toe - while Gemini is a sign that appreciates the beauty of an idea.
So they're definitely on common ground here.
The site goes on to say that since Libra is ruled by the Planet Venus (Love) and Gemini is ruled by Planet Mercury (Communication), they work well together by focusing on love and communication.
23 Not Soulmates: Jennifer Lopez & Alex Rodriguez
Jennifer and Alex are both Leos, which is why they're likely to clash. While other signs, such as Sagittarius, plays well together, Leo is a sign that doesn't. That's because Leo is a Fire sign with quite a dominant nature.
While two Leos in a relationship can create a fiery, passionate situation, they're also both keen on being the center of attention, which can cause problems.
As reported by Your Tango, Leo wants to be top dog all the time and have control of the relationship. Now, imagine two Leos going at it and you can see how this union can fall apart in an explosive way!
22 Soulmates: Eva Mendes & Ryan Gosling
Ryan's a Scorpio while Eva's Pisces. Both of them are Water signs, but they're much more compatible than that. In fact, they're known as astrological soulmates! They work well to understand each other. For example, Scorpio is secretive and Pisces sometimes withdraws into her own mind. This enables her to understand Scorpio's tendency to be so mysterious at times, according to Astrology.
And, we know that Ryan can be pretty private, as Marie Claire reports that he's one of the most secretive stars, only rarely opening up about his personal life. The understanding both signs show each other helps them to deal well with any conflicts that arise.
21 Not Soulmates: George Clooney & Amal Clooney
George is Taurus and Amal is Aquarius, which means they see life in completely different ways! Although these signs are not opposite to each other in the sign, reports Astromatcha, they're oppositional as people. This makes for an uncomfortable union.
Aquarius is the visionary and can't seem to understand Taurus's need for a stable life. Yikes. When they're focused on completely different views and goals for the future, they can really battle to make a long-term relationship work. Clearly, they need to compromise a lot to make things work, which can easily make them resentful of each other.
20 Soulmates: Mila Kunis & Ashton Kutcher
Although Mila and Ashton are born under opposing signs - she's a Leo and he's an Aquarius - they're a successful couple! This is because opposing signs tend to have the best attraction. Leo is the king (or queen) of the signs, while Aquarius is there to bring their partner down, as reported by Astrology Signs.
While that might sound like they're enemies at battle, it's quite the opposite.
In a romantic relationship, it actually means that they complement each other and balance each other out nicely. Ultimately, they're both strong and passionate, which makes them a power couple.
19 Not Soulmates: Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds
Say it isn't so! Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds make such a cute couple. Sadly, on an astrological level, they're not a great match. Blake's a Virgo and Ryan's a Libra, so they battle to give each other what they need.
Astrology Signs reports that they might also clash over their values, as the site explains: "This is a couple that will value all the same things until they discover that this simply isn’t true. It is a strange deceit that comes between them as if they were both able to practice something entirely out of their reach."
18 Soulmates: Chrissy Teigen & John Legend
While Sagittarius (Chrissy) and Capricorn (John) might not seem to be a match because Sag is hot-headed and Capricorn is sober, they actually work well together. Capricorn is known as the Sage while Sagittarius is the Adventurer.
According to Astromatcha, the Sage offers the Adventurer guidance while the Adventurer brings a breath of fresh air to the Sage. As long as they don't write each other off too soon, which is what Chrissy and John didn't do. As matchmaker Lori Slain reports on Elite Daily, they took their time to get to know each other and were best friends before entering into a romantic relationship.
17 Not Soloumates: Victoria Beckham & David Beckham
Everyone knows that the Beckhams have had their difficult times together. With Victoria being an Aries and David being born under the sign of Taurus, both of their stubborn streaks can easily cause disharmony.
Although they can work really well together, it's a juggling act for them to stay on track and happy.
The Aries woman and Taurus man is a reversal of yin and yang, as reported by Thought Co. Aries has to understand and respect Taurus's need to move slowly while Taurus has to respect Aries' need to move fast. It's easy to see how they can battle with trying to catch up to each other or pull each other back.
16 Soulmates: Priyanka Chopra & Nick Jonas
Some people have aired skepticism about Priyanka and Nick's relationship. But they're surprisingly a good match. She's Cancer and he's Virgo.
Both of these signs want relationship security, so they're off to a good start.
They also know how to give each other space when they need it so they can feel safe in the relationship, Astrostyle reports while offering each other support and nurturing. The stars might've actually started dating last year and have taken things slowly, which works in their favor. As Elite Daily reports, both Cancer and Virgo have a strong appreciation for commitment but believe in taking things slowly.
15 Not Soulmates: Chris Martin & Dakota Johnson
Complication is the name of the game for Chris and Dakota. He's a Pisces and she's a Libra, which can create a rift. They see things in different ways and don't really meet each other halfway enough to find beauty in each other's similarities.
During a conflict, they also deal differently - Libra likes to communicate, while Pisces withdraws completely, as reported by Astromatcha.
They can make things work, but they have to work hard and remove their unrealistic expectations from each other, as reported by Astrology Signs. It's definitely not easy and requires 100 percent commitment.
14 Soulmates: Margot Robbie & Tom Ackerley
She's Cancer and he's Capricorn, which makes them compatible when it comes to intellect and emotion. Even though Cancer is a Water sign and Capricorn is Earth, they are both Sun signs. Their compatibility works on a traditional level, according to Astromatcha. Cancer is nurturing and loving, while Capricorn provides emotional stability.
Yup, it's really a match made in heaven! We can see that Margot and Tom work well together in their marriage because a source tells E News that when Margot isn't working she's a homebody, while Tom is supportive of her, often traveling to wherever she is. They meet each other halfway and give each other what they need.
13 Not Soulmates: Sarah Michelle Gellar & Freddie Prinze Jr
Sarah's an Aries and her husband Freddie is a Pisces, with their union being labeled "the hothead and the dreamer." It can cause a stressful relationship! Aries is impulsive with a lack of patience, while Pisces has the tendency to be impractical. They need a lot of flexibility and compromise to make things work, which can cause their relationship to feel like a struggle at times.
It can even become toxic. As reported by Free Spiritual Guidance, Aries is social and needs to balance her life to give her Pisces partner the security he needs, because ultimately he's shy and can end up being possessive.
12 Soulmates: Katie Holmes & Jamie Foxx
Katie and Jamie's relationship has been an interesting one. Although they're both born under the sign of Sagittarius, this actually makes them more compatible than one would think at first glance.
You can totally expect fireworks between the two of these stars!
As reported by Thought Co, they're lovers on the move, with an insatiable hunger for experiencing new things. This is a common bond that makes their relationship a wonderful adventure. That's if we can predict what they'll do next - these lovebirds are full of secrecy which just adds to the mystery and fun of their relationship!
11 Not Soulmates: Sophie Turner & Joe Jonas
Sorry, Sophie and Joe - since she's a Pisces and he's a Leo, this astrology match is one of the most toxic ones! They're five signs away from each other, which means they have nothing much in common in an astrological sense and are considered to be one of the least compatible pairings.
Since they're both idealistic, they can create a magical fairytale together at first, but it can end up being a complete nightmare!
The royal Leo demands support and attention while gentle Pisces, the astrology dreamer, needs her own support and is too stuck in her own head to give Leo the adoration he needs, as reported by Astromatcha.
10 Soulmates: Alicia Keys & Swizz Beatz
Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz have been called an undeniable force in the music industry, but what about their personal relationship compatibility? Alicia's Aquarius and Swizz Beatz is Virgo, which adds a lovely warmth to their relationship. Although Virgo is rigid and Aquarius is poetic, they can learn and grow from each other, reports Astrology.
Alicia confirms this, as reported by Woman's Day, saying, "I feel that one of the things that really works about us is we're very different. Even his style of music is different from my style of music….We complement each other as opposed to [being] in each other's way….We don't rock like that."
9 Not Soulmates: Gigi Hadid & Zayn Malik
At first glance, these two seem to be a match made in heaven. Gigi is a Taurus and Zayn's a Capricorn, both of which are Earth signs. However, their relationship has the tendency to go south really quickly. That's because their similarities make them clash, as reported by Love To Know. They both battle to communicate, with both signs wanting to speak only when necessary.
They're also both immensely stubborn, with Taurus being the bull and Capricorn the goat - both will dig their heels in the ground! Some differences also crop up to make a mess of things. A prime example is how Taurus loves to indulge in life's pleasures while Capricorn is much more rigid and practical, avoiding whimsy.
8 Soulmates: Emma Stone & Andrew Garfield
Emma and Andrew are an on-again, off-again couple, but can they work in the long-term? Emma's a Scorpio, while Andrew's a Leo, making for a dramatic yet intense union. They tune into each other's needs nicely - Scorpio needs to be respected and loved, while Leo wants to be adored.
By understanding each other's needs, they create a relationship that's filled with loyalty.
Although, it can end up being slightly possessive, according to Astrology. However, the site goes on to add that if they can prevent their egos from getting in the way, they can handle conflicts pretty well.
7 Not Soulmates: Scarlett Johansson & Colin Jost
A few months ago, Scarlett and Colin made their low-key relationship official by attending the premiere for Avengers: Infinity War, and they looked really smitten with each other.
While they might feel things for each other, their astrological compatibility leaves a lot to be desired.
Scarlett's a Sagittarius and Colin's a Cancer, meaning that they both have to be patient to make things work. The fact is they want very different things. As reported by Astrology, Cancer is a Water sign that's focused on tradition and emotion while Sagittarius is a Fire sign that's known as the restless wanderer. This is sure to cause problems, especially in the long run.
6 Soulmates: Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos
Kelly and Mark are total lovebirds that give us relationship envy! She's Aries while he's Libra, so do their stars match? Yes! They're a great match because Aries is ruled by Mars and Libra is ruled by Venus, making for a passionate relationship.
Interestingly, Aries and Libra are known as the couple of the signs, according to Astrology Signs, and this is because they're each other's seventh house - and that's the house of relationships! Good news for this happily married pair, right? The site adds that when they're madly attracted to each other, there's nothing that can keep them apart.
5 Not Soulmates: Zooey Deschanel & Jacob Pechenik
Zooey and Jacob are married with kids, so their relationship has to be working, right? Interestingly, they're not a match when it comes to their stars. Zooey's a Capricorn and Jacob's a Gemini, which can create a challenging and sometimes awkward relationship.
At the heart of the matter is how different they are, with Gemini seeing life as a fun game and Capricorn being very serious about everything, Thought Co reports, adding that Capricorn is earthy, rigid, and wants substance. On the other hand, Gemini walks on air, loves chaos, and wants variety. Seems like quite an exhausting relationship to be in with lots of compromise being required!
4 Soulmates: Michelle Williams & Phil Elverum
Actress Michelle Williams recently wed musician Phil Elverum in secret. She's a Virgo and he's a Gemini, which means that they have lots in common. They know how to talk things over when their relationship hits an obstacle.
Gemini is symbolized by the Twins so people born under this sign can see both sides of the story, reports Astrology.
Virgo, on the other hand, is steady and can provide the right kind of support to Gemini. She offers emotional support along with allowing Gemini to change his mind, which is what the sign needs from a partner.
3 Not Soulmates: Zoe Saldana & Marco Perego
This married couple is sometimes seen giving each other PDA, but they're not really a good match when it comes to their stars. Zoe's a Gemini and Marco is Pisces, which creates a brooding and mysterious affair. As reported by Fire, this is a dark combination that isn't everyone's cup of tea: there is craziness in the relationship that can work, but both are drama queens and so you can expect emotional meltdowns!
The site goes on to say that Gemini is social and can make Pisces jealous, but then become detached. The result? One shuts down and the other one becomes loud and demanding, the site declares. Eek!
2 Soulmates: Ariana Grande & Pete Davidson
While Ariana and Pete are often seen all over the show engaging in sweet, romantic behaviors, and they got engaged really fast, is it all a whirlwind romance? No! She's Cancer and he's Scorpio, which creates a passionate and interesting match for the long term.
As astrologist Jake Register tells Cosmopolitan, since Cancer and Scorpio are both Water signs, they work beautifully to create a solid relationship. He adds that they're sensitive and emotional while being able to connect with each other on a deep and psychic level because they're intuitive. Sparks are sure to fly- although we already knew that from watching this pair!
1 Not Soulmates: Beyoncé & Jay-Z
They've had some ups and downs in their relationship, and perhaps there's an astrological reason for that. Beyoncé is a Virgo and Jay-Z's a Sagittarius. These two signs can create quite a lot of drama when they get together.
Both signs are independent and find it difficult to commit to a long-term relationship.
Interestingly, Virgo and Sagittarius are at a ninety-degree angle to each other. This means that they're a tense configuration known as a square aspect, resulting in lots of challenges always being around, according to Astrology Zone. Of course, we already know the couple has seen some challenges- but as their family grows, we have our fingers crossed!
