The Most Compatible Zodiac Signs

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).
