Love Horoscope Compatibility:Who Is Your Zodiac Compatibility Match?
LOVE is the #1 reason people consult astrologers — for answers in love, relationships, and compatibility. It’s human nature to want to believe that love is destined, that somewhere out in the grand scheme of things there’s ONE person, just for you. The truth of the matter is that the secret to romance is in horoscope compatibility, and we find those answers in the stars. When approached the right way, astrology is a useful tool to get you some insight when it comes to love compatibility (and that all-important sexual chemistry too!).
Love and desire, why one person turns you on and another doesn’t, can be confusing enough. Especially when you’ve got the hots and the other person is just a cold shoulder; or maybe someone wants to woo and court you, and you’re just not interested. However, understanding how zodiac compatibility can help when it comes to finding a good match is mission critical on your quest for Fated love.
Remember that the key word in relationship is "relate." And that's exactly what love compatibility is, regardless of your zodiac sign. Any relationship is going to function best when you understand each other’s strengths and weaknesses, and when your willingness to be happy overtakes your need to be right. You can choose to be compatible with anyone, regardless of their zodiac sign.
But of course, those secrets from the stars certainly help you relate to that special someone. That's exactly what we are looking at every time we examine your love compatibility and zodiac compatibility potential. The most common way to do that is through the elements.
The twelve signs of the zodiac are divided by elements, and these are the elements of the planet we are talking about: Earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn), Air (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius), Fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius), and Water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces. Each of those elements interacts with each other on this planet in its own unique way.
Love compatibility using the elements of the zodiac works in a scientific manner. What happens if you pour water onto fire? You get steam, and then the fire goes out, or, things pick up steam! Add water to the earth and you nourish the soil, but if there’s too much water you get a mudslide. It’s the same between Water Signs and Earth Signs. Earth Signs can smother fire; fire can scorch Earth Signs. Air Signs can blow Earth Signs away into dust, or they can add fuel to Fire Signs so they burn brightly. When you understand how the elements work in nature, you can get a pretty good idea as to how the different astrological elements interact with each other. You can also see the magic behind the science of zodiac compatibility.
So let's have a brief look at the love compatibility quotient of each zodiac sign. Then scroll down to our easy to read chart to find out who your best match is. Remember, every relationship is different. So if your current squeeze is in a "No" zone for you, that's okay. Success in love is all about how you choose to "relate" in relationships. Use this handy guide to find out how to do just that.
Aries – Zodiac Compatibility with Air and Fire, but rarely Cardinal Signs
Aries is a Cardinal Fire Sign, and Aries likes to take the lead. So Aries is not so great with other Cardinal Signs like Libra, Cancer, and Capricorn, who like to do the same thing. But from an element perspective, Aries does really well when merging with the wind of Air Signs, or matching up the sparks with fellow Fire Signs. Aries best matches then are Gemini, Aquarius, Leo, and Sagittarius. Sometimes Mars-ruled Aries can make it work with Venus-ruled Libra, as this is a very classic Mars-Venus pairing. But that, like any relationship, will take some extra effort as those two signs like to out wit and out play each other all the time.Find out more about Aries love compatibility by the zodiac sign here
Taurus – Zodiac Compatibility with Earth and Water, but rarely Fixed Signs
Fixed Signs like Taurus are known for their stubborn nature, so putting two of these together in a relationship can be tough. But it can work. Earth and Water nourish each other and these are the best matches for Taurus. Taurus is best with other Earth Signs as Water Signs can lead practical Taurus into emotional overload. But Taurus appreciates this all the same. Taurus with Air Signs or Fire Signs will always be competing to unravel the confusion in their mixed communication styles. But it can work if you work it.

Gemini – Zodiac Compatibility with Air and Fire, but rarely Mutable Signs
As the Mutable Air Sign, Gemini is a bit all over the map sometimes, and that's why gelling with a fellow Mutable Sign could be tough for our dear Gems. But Gemini gets along great with structured signs that share their airy nature, or bring a fiery spark to the table. So Gemini works best in love compatibility with Fixed Air Aquarius or Fixed Fire Leo. A little leading from the Cardinal Signs of these elements goes a long way for Gemini as well, so Libra and Aries are also great zodiac matches for Gem. A fellow Gem is great for Gem, but only if you aren't always in constant competition, which is tricky to manage.Find out more about Gemini love compatibility by the zodiac sign here
Cancer – Zodiac Compatibility with Water and Earth, but rarely Cardinal Signs
As the Cardinal Water Sign, Cancer loves to be the boss of everything. So Cancer doesn't gel well with others that like the same. But Cancer does love being nourished, and allowing others to let Cancer nourish them. Cancer thrives on being the nurturer, whether they are male or female. So Cancer blends seamlessly with fellow Waters, and also the practical and grounded Earth Signs waiting to be fed by Cardinal Cancer. The less emotional signs like Air or quick moving signs like Fire may be too much for Cancer, but water and fire do make steam and you can make it work if you work it.Find out more about Cancer love compatibility by the zodiac sign here
Leo – Zodiac Compatibility with Fire and Air, but not always Fixed Signs
Leo is ruled by the Sun, and this Fixed Sign likes to be the center of everyone's attention, all the time. So Leo really needs to have a match that gets this, and is okay with this. At the same time, Leo needs someone who is always up for their next best adventure. This makes Fire and Air Signs great matches for Leo. Leo likes things their way and can get on with other Fixed Signs, and will have a lover for life if they find one. But the other party in this love compatibility match is going to need to be okay with making concessions for Leo all the time. At the same time, Leo is kind of famous for getting on with everybody, so it's hard to find anyone that doesn't like a Leo with valid cause. That's sometimes a problem for jealous partners too. Yes, we're talking about you, Scorpio.Find out more about Leo love compatibility by the zodiac sign here
Virgo – Zodiac Compatibility with Earth and Water, but rarely Mutable Signs
Your Mutable Earth Sign friend Virgo is the one you call whenever you are in a jam. That's just how Virgo rolls. Practical and grounded while always flexible, most people get along with Virgos most of the time. But Virgo does need some structure, and so other Mutable Signs may be too flighty for practical Virgo. At the same time, Virgo does very well in love compatibility being nourished by Water Signs and staying grounded with fellow Earth Signs. Virgo is the one Mutable Sign that loves a partner for life, so Fixed Signs pair bond well with our favorite go-to friend.Find out more about Virgo love compatibility by the zodiac sign here
Libra – Zodiac Compatibility with Air and Fire, but rarely Cardinal Signs
As the Cardinal Air Sign, Libra likes to be the boss. But at the same time, this relationship oriented zodiac sign ruled by lover Venus is all about the scales of Justice as well. Libra does not just "like" peace and harmony, Libra insists on it. No drama for this mama! So no matter what sign you are, if you also seek peace, you and Libra will get along just fine. When it comes to zodiac compatibility, Libra does best with fellow Air Signs or Fire Signs that match Libra's special sparkle.Find out more about Libra love compatibility by the zodiac sign here
Scorpio – Zodiac Compatibility with Water and Earth, but rarely Air Signs
Anyone that has loved a Fixed Sign knows they have a lover for life, and this certainly rings true for Scorpio. That is not always a great thing, as if any sign is going to go "Single White Female" it's going to be Scorpio. But you can't beat the passion and sex appeal from this Fixed Water Sign. Scorpio needs someone that accepts their intense emotionality, and they don't usually find this with the thinking Air Signs. But Scorpio can make some sparks and steam with the Fire family so long as everyone is putting the effort in. At the end of the day, Earth Signs stabilize Scorpio's intensity, and Water Signs just "get" you like nobody else will. And that's really all Scorpio wants after all.Find out more about Scorpio love compatibility by the zodiac sign here
Sagittarius – Zodiac Compatibility with Fire and Air, but rarely Fixed Signs
Sagittarius is the Mutable Fire Sign that is the freedom lover of the zodiac. Sagittarius is not always known for fidelity and loyalty, but they make up for that with their adventurous spirit and love of truth. Sagittarius does well in love with other Fire Signs, but Fixed Signs like Scorpio and Leo may require more commitment than Sagittarius is willing to offer. The Air Signs like Libra and Aquarius though will keep Sagittarius on their toes, and on the thinking and justice plane they love so much. Fellow Mutable Sign Gemini may be too tricky for Sag, but Sag will find a way if the will on both parties is there.Find out more about Sagittarius love compatibility by the zodiac sign here
Capricorn – Zodiac Compatibility with Earth and Water, but rarely Air Signs
Capricorn is the Cardinal Earth Sign and the CEO of the zodiac. Because of this, Capricorn gets along with like-minded Earth Signs in love compatibility. Capricorn doesn't do well with flighty friends, and this could include wishy washy Libra and Mutable Gemini of the Air Signs family. Capricorn is also looking for a partner for life, so Mutable Sagittarius may be a little too flexible in their loyalty for Capricorn's taste. At the same time, if you are looking for something stable and secure, those are exactly the needs that Capricorn lives to meet, regardless of what your zodiac sign is.Find out more about Capricorn love compatibility by the zodiac sign here
Aquarius – Zodiac Compatibility with Air and Fire, but rarely Mutable Signs
Aquarius is the Fixed Air Sign of the zodiac, and is as stubborn as they come. Aquarius prefers to consider this trait as being loyal to their opinions. Aquarius is loyal to their lovers too, and gets along very well with fellow Fixed buddies Scorpio, Leo, and Taurus. Mutable Signs are too flighty for this big thinker that just wants their partner to make a decision and stick to it. Fire Signs and Aquarius get along swimmingly, as their energies are both very quick-paced and compatible. Emotional Water Signs can be too much for Aquarius, sometimes, but water-bearer Aquarius gets the watery need for emotional overload sometimes. At the end of the day the truth prevails for Aquarius, and they'll need a partner that believes in the same.Find out more about Aquarius love compatibility by the zodiac sign here
Pisces – Zodiac Compatibility with Water and Earth, but rarely Air Signs
As the Mutable Water Sign, Pisces is known as the romantic dreamer of the zodiac. As such, they don't always gel in love compatibility with the rational minds of the Air Signs. Pisces really needs someone that can bring them some structure, but also gets their creative vision. Earth Signs bring this structure to Pisces and grounds them in a nourishing and compassionate way that Pisces loves. Fellow Water Signs are great for Pisces who wants to be romantic all the time. Some signs get tired by this every day, but Scorpio and Cancer thrive on this pair bond with Pisces. Pisces does not like to be bossed around or see their freedom threatened, but will let some zodiac signs tie them down with a commitment if the offer is right.Find out more about Pisces love compatibility by the zodiac sign here
