Dating has been interesting in the pandemic. I’ve had friends move in with significant others after only a few weeks of dating – friends that met their “soulmates” on apps like Tinder and Hinge. And friends that are strategically using astrology to pin down their next match. It’s the latter that I’d like to talk about. Did you know the planets, and more specifically, your natal chart can act as a guideline to a successful relationship? Well, neither did we.
Unsurprisingly, it turns out compatibility is one of the key factors to a successful relationship. And knowing your Zodiac sign and what sign pairings are the most compatible, challenging, and average, can be essential in some relationships. Below we break it down.
Sun signs: In short, this is the zodiac sign that the sun was moving through when you were born. It reflects self-esteem, identity, self-image and confidence.
Moon signs: The moon acts as your emotional compass, impacting how you connect with others.
Venus signs: Venus, the planet of love, steps into this sign as what you value most. It shows how you demonstrate desire and experience pleasure.
Mars signs: Mars focuses on what drives you as a person — looking at your inner fire, energy and strength.
It might seem overwhelming, but once you narrow down all signs of a person, you’ll be able to really determine compatibility.
Most Compatible Zodiac Signs
Natural compatibility between two people will show four signs apart on a natal chart. This is the most supportive and harmonious angel.
- Fire: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
- Earth: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
- Air: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
- Water: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Another angel is the friendly and easygoing relationship based on a chart that is two signs apart.
- Aries: Gemini, Aquarius
- Taurus: Cancer, Pisces
- Gemini: Aries, Leo
- Cancer: Taurus, Virgo
- Leo: Gemini, Libra
- Virgo: Cancer, Scorpio
- Libra: Leo, Sagittarius
- Scorpio: Virgo, Capricorn
- Sagittarius: Libra, Aquarius
- Capricorn: Scorpio, Pisces
- Aquarius: Aries, Sagittarius
- Pisces: Taurus, Capricorn
Least Compatible Zodiac Signs
If you are three signs apart from your potential partner, this could indicate problems down the line. Essentially, you are too similar to the person and might clash.
- Aries: Cancer, Capricorn
- Taurus: Leo, Aquarius
- Gemini: Virgo, Pisces
- Cancer: Aries, Libra
- Leo: Scorpio, Taurus
- Virgo: Gemini, Sagittarius
- Libra: Cancer, Capricorn
- Scorpio: Leo, Aquarius
- Sagittarius: Virgo, Pisces
- Capricorn: Aries, Libra
- Aquarius: Taurus, Scorpio
- Pisces: Gemini, Sagittarius
Average Compatible Zodiac Signs
If your sun is the same sign as your partner’s, you could either be ying and yang by balancing each other out, or total opposites and butt heads all the time.
- Aries and Libra
- Taurus and Scorpio
- Gemini and Sagittarius
- Cancer and Capricorn
- Leo and Aquarius
- Virgo and Pisces
We aren’t saying to follow this guide strictly and to not date anyone outside of your compatibility realm, we are simply saying take it with a great of salt but to know that checking Zodiac signs could be beneficial.
