The Most Compatible Zodiac Signs

Updated June 19, 2019 2.1m views12 items

The most compatible zodiac signs are often those in the same "element." Each of the 12 astrology signs are assigned a specific element: earth, air, water, or fire. Looking at just a person's sun sign (or main astrology sign) isn't always a sure-fire way to predict true star sign compatibility, but it does give a general idea of which signs are the most harmonious. This list includes all of the star signs, in order, followed by their four most compatible signs. It also includes specifics about the various astrological signs' elements.

When determining true compatibility in relationships (known as synastry), an astrologist analyzes more than just the sun signs, though that's certainly a starting point. Other factors that come into play with horoscope signs compatibility include specific moon signs' compatibility. Placements of Venus and Mars in a person's astrological birth chart are also important considerations. In short, it's key to consider the specific placements of a planet in a person's natal horoscope chart to find out whether or not they'll be compatible with another person.

Compatible astrology signs mean exactly that: signs that tend to have harmonious relationships, whether romantic or simply friendship. Certain astrology signs have characteristics that make them gel well with other signs, but there are always exceptions. If you're a Gemini, for example, you technically should be compatible with a Libra - but if you aren't, there could be other reasons (including incompatible moon placements in a natal horoscope). What zodiac signs are compatible? You can check a zodiac sign compatibility chart or just check out the list of zodiac signs below! Find your love (or just friends) match even easier, knowing your astrological sign compatibility! If you want to expand your relationships beyond just who your sign is compatible with, The Astrology of You and Me offers guidance for how to deal with any astrological sign - even if it's not one that is a perfect match.

    Most Compatible Signs: Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius, Aquarius

    Aries, the Ram, is a fire sign, so it's no surprise that those born under this astrological sign would be compatible with other fire signs (Leo and Sagittarius). That being said, Aries is also typically compatible with the air signs of Gemini and Aquarius.

    Aries is an adventurous, energetic and confident sign. Those born under the Aries sun sign are often bold and courageous, though on the flip side, they can also be quick-tempered, impatient and, to some degree, daredevils.

    Most Compatible Signs: Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, Pisces

    Taurus, the Bull, is an earth sign, and is compatible with fellow earth signs Capricorn and Virgo. For those born under this astrological sign, some are also compatible with water signs, including Pisces and Cancer.

    Those born under the sun sign of Taurus tend to be persistent and very determined individuals (they are Bulls, after all). A Taurus is also reliable and patient, though at times, some can be self-indulgent and, in worst cases, downright greedy.

    Most Compatible Signs: Aries, Leo, Libra, Aquarius

    Gemini, the Twins, is an air sign and, not surprisingly, is compatible with other air signs, including Aquarius and Libra. Geminis are also generally compatible with fire signs, including Leo and Aries.

    Geminis are, in keeping with their dual natures, almost always highly adaptable and versatile people. A Gemini is intelligent, lively and loves to talk. On the flip side, Geminis can be somewhat superficial and nervous or tense.

    Most Compatible Signs: Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio, Pisces

    Cancer, the Crab, is considered to be compatible with fellow water signs Pisces and Scorpio and, to some extent, the earth signs of Taurus and Virgo.

    Cancers are highly emotional individuals, who are quick to love -- and love hard. A Cancer is often very cautious, but once they commit, they are all in. Negative traits for cancers include being a little too emotional and clingy. Some Cancers have a lot of trouble letting go of things, too.
