This is Astrology Club’s guide to Zodiac Compatibility, teaching the astrology basics on how well a person might match up with another according to their Zodiac signs.
Compatibility of Zodiac Signs
Astrology may well hold the key to your future happiness in love. Are you one of the feisty fire signs, such as Aries, Leo or Sagittarius? Or are you an emotional water sign, like Pisces, Scorpio or Cancer? Basically, the position of the Sun at the time of your birth decides what star sign you have. You will relate differently to potential romantic partners depending on the compatibility of their own sun sign with your sun sign.
One of the most important uses of the signs of the zodiac is to determine if two people are compatible, by studying the zodiac signs they were born under.
People who trust in Western astrology play great attention to the compatibility between people as indicated by the signs of the zodiac of their birth. The 12 signs of the zodiac are Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces.
Western astrology associates character traits, both positive traits and negative traits, with people born under each zodiac sign.
Western astrology holds that the character traits for each sign of the zodiac determine if two people are compatible. People who trust in this form of astrology often consider the compatibility of their zodiac signs before committing to a romantic relationship or to a business relationship.

Because of the nature of the signs, some have a natural affinity with each other while there are areas of conflict between others. These relationships between the signs of the zodiac also have a bearing on personal relationships. Comparing charts to see how well people get on with each other can be very complicated as all the planets in the signs, houses and their aspects with each other need to be taken into consideration. However, it is possible to compare Sun Signs for a fun look into love-relationships and friendships. Here’s the easiest way to do it.
Zodiac Signs Compatibility Between The Astrology Elements

The most advantageous match for a sign is with one of the same element:
- Fire with Fire (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius)
- Earth with Earth (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn)
- Air with Air (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius)
- Water with Water (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces)
However, a complementary match is the next choice as indicated below:
Fire (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) and Air Signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) Compatibility
Fire’s drive and energy burns brightly with Air’s intelligent ideas. Meanwhile, Fire’s zest for life where combined with Air’s playfulness can result in great times together.
Earth (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) and Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) Compatibility

The Question is: Do You Want Comfort or Challenge in Love?
Fire (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) and Earth (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) Signs Compatibility
The combination Fire ambition and the organization of Earth will often result in material success. However, there can be clashes in the ways both signs go about it.
Fire (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) and Water (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) Signs Compatibility
There will be hot steamy passion between these two, but some very emotional clashes too. When an energetic and opinionated fire sign gets together with a water sign, they need to be careful that one of them does not drown out the enthusiasm of the other.
Dreamy Pisces, sign of the fish may just be too deep and emotional for Leo the lion, king of the jungle. The lion may want to roar his way through life, leaving a pride of devoted women in his wake, and the Pisces girl may be left gasping for air, wondering what happened to her fiery prince.
Sometimes a compelling Scorpio, who has a magnetic and powerful personality even though they are in a water sign, can get together with a fire sign without being burned.
Or maybe a sensitive Cancer, sign of the crab, may find that this time water and fire definitely doesn’t mix, unless they meet a particularly thoughtful and fiery mate. Astrologically, Cancer makes a brilliant mother, and Leo makes a brilliant father, so this may be one way they can get it together and make it work.
Earth (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) and Air (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) Signs Compatibility
There’s a mental meeting point here and these two will respect each other. But Earth can feel uncertain with air’s changeability and unreliability, and Air can find Earth “a stick in the mud”. The other astrology twosome that can find it hard to work romantically is that of the earth and air signs. If you are an imaginative air sign, then a down to earth, practical earth sign can seem a bit dull.
The intellectual air signs of Libra, Gemini and Aquarius are filled with imagination, and often their creative brains can be a little disappointed in the practical attitude of the earth signs of Taurus, Capricorn and Virgo. Look a little further however, and air signs will find that while they have been busy fantasising about a romantic dinner for two, the practical earth sign has already booked a table at the best bistro in town.
Air (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) and Water (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) Signs Compatibility
With Water’s imagination and Air’s ideas, these two will have big dreams together. Air’s need for emotional space can make Water insecure, and Water’s need for closeness and reassurance can crowd Air.

Water and Fire Signs Compatibility – Fire (Aries, Leo or Sagittarius) and Water just don’t mix without making a whole lot of steam. Fire burns more than it warms sensitive Waters’ feelings.

Zodiac compatibility can often become complicated, taking into account the year, the place, plus the exact time you and your partner were born on. For the sake of making it easier, we will just focus on the sun signs which many people know as their horoscope or zodiac signs and explain how well they match up with other signs.
People born under each of the four groups of zodiac signs, Air, Water, Earth, and Fire, are deemed to be most compatible with people from the same group for both romantic and business relationships.
People born under an Air sign and a Fire sign are deemed to be the next most compatible with each other, as are people born under a Water sign and an Earth sign.
The general comments give you some indication based on both Star Signs. Look at each combination using the signs for you and your partner.

There are a number of other ways in which the signs can be grouped together, one of which is to consider whether they are positive or negative.
Positive signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius) are extroveredt, confident, optimistic and full of fun. There is a natural harmony between these signs.
Negative signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces) are more introverted. They take life very seriously and are in tune with their inner selves. They prefer small groups of people to crowds and are likely to be in touch with nature.
Again there is a natural affinity between these groups of signs.
Looking Beyond Sun Signs Love Compatibility
To learn more you need to look deeper at the position of the planets and Moon when both of you were born. Some planetary aspects are significant for friendship or romance. When a chart comparison is done between a man and woman the first thing an astrologer looks for is aspects between the Sun in one chart and the Moon in another. This usually signifies a deep and meaningful friendship. For romance the planets involved are Mars and Venus. A good aspect between these two planets usually signifies a romantic relationship which in time can lead to marriage.
Although there are other factors to consider in a chart these are the most significant. So even if your Sun Signs are not compatible the Sun – Moon, Venus – Mars aspects can have an over riding influence here.
The saying that, “good marriages are made in heaven”, makes sense when we look at astrology and the way it reflects our earthly needs.

Human nature gives us all a vivid interest in knowing how compatible we are with others. Whether it is a particular lover, member of the family, work colleague or friend a simple comparison between both of your zodiac signs can give you a hint as to what is in store.

Birth, death and rebirth, the cycle continues as we travel our evolutionary path. Along the way we encounter many souls time and time again to work and grow together.
