Have you ever wondered who your soul mate will be? Of course you have—even if you’re happy flying solo for now, we all think about who our perfect match will be. How will we know when “the one” comes along? The truth is that you won’t know whether or not a guy is truly the one for you until you take some time to get to know him, but there are always a few clues that can tip you off. For example, if your zodiac signs are compatible, that’s definitely a positive indication that you two are meant to be.
Why do some signs get along so well, while others are destined to fail if they ever attempt a relationship together? It all has to do with the personality traits that come along with each sign and how we interact with each other. Some signs are destined for a glorious romance, while others mix about as well as oil and water—in other words, they have no chance at making it work!
How do you know which pairs will sizzle and which ones will fizzle? We’ve done the research for you. Read on, and maybe you’ll find your match!
24 Aries and Aquarius: Adorable and Adventurous
Aries and Aquarius have so much in common that sometimes they can seem like they’re the same sign! However, there are definitely some differences between these two highly compatible signs. While Aries doesn’t like to listen to society’s norms, they don’t make a big deal out of it if they DO align with the mainstream in some areas. Aquarius, on the other hand, makes it a point to stand out and be different at every opportunity. But the point is that both of these signs understand each other’s need to do their own thing and resist conformity. That’s why they get along so well in relationships. They both want to walk off the beaten path, and getting out of your comfort zone is always more fun with a loving partner by your side!
23 Taurus and Gemini: No Chance at Romance
Gemini pairs well with a few signs, but Taurus is certainly not one of them. What makes these signs so opposed to each other? These two can barely be friends—maybe acquaintances—and you can forget about them ever dating! It simply would never work. So, let’s dig into exactly what makes Taurus and Gemini so incompatible. Taurus is an earth sign, and because of this, they are very grounded and rational. Gemini, on the other hand, is an air sign. Gemini truly embodies the element of air with their flighty, free spirited, and sometimes shallow nature. Taurus has their feet on the ground, while Gemini definitely has their head in the clouds! You’re lucky if you can get these two signs to have a civil discussion, let alone date!
22 Gemini and Aquarius: A Quirky Match
While an Aquarius will always get along pretty well with an Aries, they also have another great match: Gemini. This might be surprising, because many people think that Geminis are not suited for monogamous relationships. Truthfully, this is accurate in many cases, but with the right partner, even the wildest Gemini can stay totally loyal! And most of the time, that right partner will turn out to be an Aquarius. Why do these two signs get together so often? Well, both Aquarius and Gemini are highly curious signs. They are always reading, listening to new underground music, staying updated on current events, watching cool documentaries on misunderstood topics, and trying to broaden their horizons in any number of ways. Therefore, they will never run out of things to talk about!
21 Sagittarius and Capricorn: Never on the Same Page
Sometimes, it’s almost a little surprising that Sagittarius isn’t an air sign. They differ from the other two fire signs in a few important ways, and they also are similar to Gemini in their heart—they move from place to place, person to person, and job to job, often while thinking only about the short term benefits. Now, which sign is the polar opposite of Sagittarius? It might just be Capricorn. These two signs have so little in common. Now, we all know that sometimes, opposites attract, but Capricorn is simply too different from Sagittarius for this relationship to work. These two signs do not value the same things: Capricorn prioritizes stability, while Sagittarius prioritizes freedom over everything else. There’s no way a long term relationship would work.
20 Pisces and Cancer: A Deep Emotional Bond
It should come as no surprise that Pisces and Cancer are often destined to be together. These two signs are both under the element of water. Therefore, they share many core values, which is always extremely important in any relationship that is going to last. Furthermore, these two signs understand each other’s deep emotions. Both Cancer and Pisces are highly sensitive signs. This can make it difficult for them to date signs that are not also water signs, because water signs are inherently more emotional than all of the other elements. They can stay up late having in depth conversations about their feelings, they know how to comfort each other when things go wrong, and they understand the value of honesty and loyalty towards each other.
19 Scorpio and Virgo: Emotional Instability
Throughout this list, we’ve discussed how Scorpio’s emotions can affect relationship they end up in. No matter what sign they’re dating, this person has to be someone who can empathize with and deal with the way a Scorpio processes their emotions. And not every sign is up for the challenge! For example, let’s take a look at what happens when a Scorpio pairs up with a Virgo. Scorpio might come home from a long day, needing to cry and just let out all of their feelings, while a Virgo wouldn’t be able to understand why they were taking everything so seriously. If a Virgo has a long day, they pretty much just brush it off and forget about it! These two just do not understand each other’s mindsets.
18 Aries and Sagittarius: A Bold, Brave Relationship
Aries and Sagittarius are simply a natural match. If you take astrology seriously, these signs are quite literally a “match made in heaven!” So if you’re an Aries or a Sagittarius, good news: look no further than each other if you want to live happily ever after. What’s the secret to the incredible romance between these two signs? They are both natural adventurous and brave. They may have some commitment issues, but when they DO find that perfect person, they will give them their all. They understand each other’s approach to relationships, and they also understand each other’s drive to explore, see the world, and dive deep into other cultures and lifestyles. If they have enough money, their honeymoon will be a round the world tour for as long as they can manage!
17 Cancer and Virgo: A Total Imbalance
You may be noticing a pattern here—Virgo does not pair too well with super emotional signs! If you’re a Virgo, or you know one, this should not come as too much of a surprise. While Cancer can be much calmer when it comes dealing with their emotions compared to Scorpio, they are also very sensitive and needy signs. Virgo, on the other hand, values independence. They also would rather just deal with problems on their own than constantly hashing them out with someone else. Sometimes, a Cancer and a Virgo can be good friends, but if they try to date, there will always be an imbalance. While these signs can get along, they are simply not meant to be together in a romantic sense.
16 Aquarius and Sagittarius: Crazy For Each Other
Since Aries and Sagittarius are so great together, and Aquarius is a lot like Aries in many ways, doesn’t it make sense that Aquarius and Sagittarius would also be a pretty good match? If you said yes, you’d be right! Aquarius and Sagittarius both love to get outside their comfort zones—in fact, Aquarius would rather just not have a comfort zone and consistently stay challenging themselves. Sagittarius, on the other hand, likes having a nice home base to return to, but they also love to travel. The adventures of an Aquarius and Sagittarius couple could easily be a TV series. These two signs would get into so many crazy antics, it would be impossible to document them all! These couples will continue having the most fun, even as they age.
15 Scorpio and Aries: Butting Heads
It’s hard to imagine how a Scorpio and Aries relationship would go, because it’s so rare that it really works for the long run. These two are destined to nothing but summer flings and failed attempts at being friends with benefits. Aries is simply too stubborn to deal with Scorpio when they get angry. Compromise is simply not possible! At first, these two may find the fighting and ups and downs “passionate,” but this is not what true passion looks like. In fact, this is a very unhealthy way of thinking about relationships. These two will tear each other apart in an argument, make up, and call it love—but it’s just a fear of being completely alone. This relationship is simply not meant to last.
14 Libra and Gemini: A Meeting of the Minds
Libra and Gemini are both highly intellectual signs. They are eternally curious, and they simply want to know everything about everything. This is why they get along so well as friends—and to no one’s surprise, this friendship often blossoms into romance! They love to debate, but it’s always in good fun, because they truly value each other’s opinions. This is why their relationships are so strong compared to other couples. They know how to disagree in a healthy way without blowing up at each other and getting offended. This is a necessary skill in any healthy relationship! And while they love a good argument, they also love pursuing their passions alongside each other. They are always very encouraging and supportive of each other’s personal development.
13 Virgo and Taurus: They’re Both Too Stubborn
One might think that a Virgo and Taurus would get along great. And they do in some scenarios. If they’re related, they’re the ones who will smooth over family disputes easily. If they’re coworkers, they will always be ready to tackle a new project together. And if they’re in a class together at college, they would be happy to swap their neat, detailed notes and be study buddies. But when it comes to dating? Nope! First of all, they’re both pretty stubborn. They can compromise when necessary for professional reasons, but on personal beliefs, behaviors, and values? Not a chance. Plus, both of them need someone who will bring a little more excitement into their lives and shake them up—not someone with a similar personality.
12 Scorpio and Pisces: A Romantic Rollercoaster Ride
Oh, man, a Pisces and Scorpio relationship is always a wild ride. This is the perfect example of a zodiac combo that truly “brings the heat”—they just need to hope they burn bright instead of burning out. So, what brings these couples together? The creativity of a Pisces combined with the emotional intensity of a Scorpio can be extremely attractive to the other. Pisces sees so much potential and depth in Scorpio, and Scorpio sees that same emotional intensity in Pisces—it’s just expressed in a different way. However, if they don’t approach the relationship with a certain level of emotional maturity, they will fight very often, especially in the beginning. But if they can manage to make it work, these two water signs can enjoy a strong bond for life.
11 Aries and Taurus: Constantly Clashing
Aries and Taurus may seem similar in some ways, and therefore, people might assume that this couple would actually work well together. But unfortunately for any Aries and Taurus couples who truly fell for each other in the beginning, it’s just not the perfect match. In fact, it’s not even an okay match. At first, these two may admire because they both know what they want, and they’re determined to get it. But what happens when they both want completely different things for themselves? In rare cases when Aries and Taurus are totally aligned in their goals and what they see for their futures, this combo could work out. But 99% of the time, that’s not the case, and their constant fighting will lead to a break up.
10 Scorpio and Sagittarius: Living Wild and Free
Scorpio and Sagittarius have something in common: they can both come across as crazy to people who don’t truly understand them! It’s shame, but these two signs are both experienced with this. So when they get together, they both know how it feels to be treated like an outsider. Scorpio is judged because they are more open and vulnerable than most others when it comes to their emotions, and Sagittarius is judged because they have no time for other people’s ideas of what their life “should” look like. Therefore, these signs may have a relationship that seems strange to outsiders, but totally works for them. And that’s what makes their bond so deep: it’s Scorpio and Sagittarius against the world, and they don’t need anyone else’s approval.
9 Pisces and Gemini: No Loyalty
Pisces is a pretty loyal sign overall. They value the relationships with people they love over everything else in their life, and they would never dream of cheating while in a relationship. They are hurt easily, so they try to treat people as they want to be treated. Now let’s take a look at Gemini for a moment, and it will quickly become clear as to why these two signs simply cannot date. Gemini tends to enjoy short flings, hot hook ups, brief summer romances, and even open relationships. This sign does not do super well in monogamous relationships. Pisces, on the other hand, hates the idea of “friends with benefits” and cannot imagine sharing their partner with anyone else. Therefore, it’s highly unlikely that a Pisces/Gemini combo will end with anything but heartbreak.
8 Aries and Leo: Head Over Heels in Love
When Aries and Leo get together, you better step back and watch out, because no one can get in the way of this romance. These signs are bold, brave, and super confident—which is why they are so attracted to each other! Some people may be shocked when their Aries and Leo friends start dating because they both seem so strong-willed that people often assume they could never even get along as friends, let alone date! You might imagine that Aries and Leo would butt heads all the time, and sometimes, they do. But Leo loves Aries for their stubborn and secure nature, and Aries loves Leo for their dedication and willpower to whatever they set their mind to. These two are an unlikely but very happy match!
7 Cancer and Aquarius: Over Before It Begins
A Cancer and Aquarius pair would be doomed from the start. Why is romance so impossible for these two signs? Well, it all has to do with their outlook on life. Cancer loves to be surrounded by family and friends as often as possible. They need a strong support system, and they always show their loved ones plenty of affection in return. But what about Aquarius? They definitely don’t look at life the same way. The Aquarius motto basically boils down to, “I’ve got my own back.” This doesn’t mean Aquarius is anti-social or unfeeling, but they genuinely love being independent and don’t feel like they truly NEED anyone else. This is a totally foreign concept to Cancer, and they would crave attention that they could never get from their Aquarius partner.
6 Leo and Scorpio: It Could Crash and Burn
Leo and Scorpio might seem like an impossible combination. Have you noticed a pattern with Leo pairings? Yup, people often assume that it’s difficult for anyone to date a Leo, especially another sign that can be very intense! But the truth is that Leo can make a great partner when they are paired up with the right sign—and it can just take them a while to figure out who the right sign really is! A Leo and Scorpio relationship could crash and burn pretty quickly, but if they do manage to make it through the first few obstacles, they could be together for life. It will take a lot of work for these two headstrong signs to stay together, but they both approach life with gusto and treat their relationship the same way.
5 Libra and Sagittarius: They Don’t Understand Each Other
Libra and Sagittarius can barely stand to be in the same room as each other most of the time, let alone get into a relationship! The closest these two signs could ever come to dating might be hooking up at a party after having a few too many! So, let’s explore exactly what makes these signs so opposed to each other. To put it simply, they both have a completely different approach to life. Libra is very particular and organized. They plan everything carefully and pay a lot of attention to their image and what other people think. Sagittarius, on the other hand, couldn’t care less about any of that—they just stumble along and try to figure things out as they go! They would be fighting after 5 minutes together.
4 Taurus and Capricorn: A Steady, Enduring Love
We haven’t really explored any earth sign pairings on this list yet—these signs can be very fickle about who they date! Earth signs are very selective by nature, so they often rule out many potential partners very quickly. But sometimes, they realize that another sign under the same element is perfect for them! Taurus and Capricorn often have amazing relationships. Their relationship may seem too “boring” and stable for people on the outside—but the truth is, this couple truly brings the heat! They just keep that side of their relationship private because by nature, they are very private people. Behind the scenes, these two are on fire! They support each other unconditionally, they are steadfast in their loyalty, and lying will never have a place in their relationship.
3 Pisces and Capricorn: It Could Never Last
Pisces and Capricorn don’t even sound like a good match on paper, let alone in person. And if you are one of these signs, you already know exactly why! Picture your typical Pisces: dreamy, sensitive, probably engrossed in some creative pursuit, living frugally so they can pursue their art, moving around like a drifter. That’s what makes Pisces happiest! Now imagine a Capricorn in their natural habitat. Probably bent over a desk in their super tidy home office, working on an important project for their boss, not even minding the late hour. Well, these two signs only have about one thing in common: they’re both night owls! But other than that, they would probably not even last a week together. They simply have nothing in common.
2 Scorpio and Capricorn: Endless Passion and Commitment
You might be surprised that Scorpio and Capricorn make such a good match. After all, Scorpio can often come across as a bit crazy, while Capricorn is super grounded and rational. So, what bonds these two signs together? They both prioritize their true passions in life above anything else. And if their passions happen to include each other, well, you would be amazed at how beautiful their relationship can be. One of the few things that can distract Capricorn from their single minded focus on their career is a beautiful relationship, and Scorpio can show them just how important it is to keep in touch with sensitive, emotional side rather than burying their feelings deep under. These two signs have so much to teach each other!
1 Gemini and Cancer: An Emotional Trainwreck
Pisces and Cancer are both water signs, so it’s probably obvious that they are similar in many ways. Now that we’ve established this, it should be easy to see why Cancer wouldn’t do so well in a relationship with a Gemini, either! Just like Pisces, Cancer is a very sensitive and loving sign. They are highly emotional and can be a bit needy in relationships—and if times get tough for them, they can easily turn into a huge clinger. Gemini, on the other hand, doesn’t really deal with their emotions in the same way. In fact, they generally do not get attached to people the way that Cancer does, and when they are young, they’re not interested in serious romantic relationships—they would rather be single and have fun hooking up with new people!
