If you know your zodiac sign, you already know some facts about the traits, tendencies, and challenges associated with your sign. But did you know that there are also connections between your zodiac sign and your love life? Star sign compatibility is a thing! Who you find attractive, who will be attracted to you and the types of relationships that are likely to keep you satisfied in the long-term.
A skilled astrologer can predict which signs you might be most compatible with, and what romantic pitfalls you might have to look out for. Of course, any good astrologer will also tell you that it’s not as simple as recommending two pairs of signs and leaving it at that, but there are some zodiac signs that just generally tend to hit it off romantically.
I personally love helping people find love and long-lasting relationships, so I've looked up four talented Astrologers and found out what they stay about which zodiac sign you might be most compatible with. Will you find your ideal love match in this list?
Which star signs could be a perfect match for yours? Read on to find out. A side note though. Always trust your gut when it comes to choosing a partner.
The most obvious compatible partnerships happen between two people with the same sign. This partnership usually means that both people have come to love themselves, which is ace. According to the Astro Twins, life with your same sign partner will be simple, in sync and easy. However, same sign pairs often don’t end up together because most people don’t want easy. The AstroTwins explain on their website: "If you date someone of the same sign, congratulations. You've probably embraced your quirks and accepted your humanity."
The 12 zodiac signs are divided along a circular vector system. If your partner's sign is opposite yours on the zodiac vector, it can make for a great romantic pairing. "You can be polar opposites who want to kill each other or you can be the yin to each others' yang," Ophira said from Astro Twins. "That opposite person will be like a mirror to parts of yourself that you're not aware of." The opposite signs are:
Another coupling with a lot of potential is a partner who is five signs away from your own. "The purpose of relationships is not just for it to be easy and live in romantic la la land, but for us to grow," Ophira from The Astro Twins said. "So I find that a lot of people actually pick someone who's five signs away from theirs and it's this weird karmic thing."
As the AstroTwins' explain, these pairings are complex but can lead to an intense bond with a deep level of intimacy. Though the partnership won't always work because you're so astrologically different, it can be magical if you find the right person. Signs that are 5 signs apart are:
Signs whose elements match are another super compatible pairing. Each of the 12 zodiac signs is matched with one of the four elements: Water, Air, Earth, and Fire. If your partner shares the same element as you, the relationship is sure to be easygoing and familiar. "In this pairing you've never felt so comfortable, so understood on a core level," the AstroTwins write. But a little extra effort is required for keeping the passion alive — you'll need to make sure you maintain some independence in this relationship. Matching element signs are:
Power couples are usually three signs apart. The AstroTwins say that shacking up with someone whose sign is three away from your own on the zodiac vector will create a sexy dynamic tension. By overcoming that possible tensions, this partnership can evolve into the coveted "power couple" designation. Signs that are three signs apart are:
Couples who are two signs apart are likely to be great friends and lovers too. You may need to work harder on keeping the spark going than other pairs though.
