These 6 Zodiac Love Matches Reveal The Most Compatible Signs In Astrology
Love, Zodiac

When it comes to discerning compatibility in love and relationships according to astrology, it's not an exact science. Sometimes two people who seem perfect for each other aren't able to make their relationship work long-term, even though their horoscopes indicate otherwise.

Sometimes, opposites attract, and the least likely zodiac matches end up the happiest.

It's hard to nail love compatibility in general, but it is possible to identify traits that makes people born under certain zodiac signs more compatible than others.

For example, Cancers and Libras are very compatible, though they aren't usually pinned as soulmates, because one is known to be emotional and the other is known for craving balance. However, it's their shared emotionality that connects them in a way that other people can't understand.

On the other hand, Leos and Sagittarians, both strong-willed and independent, balance each other divinely when in a relationship, though it could be argued that they are both too set in their ways to compromise with the other.

In the end, it's impossible to state definitively which zodiac signs will work together and which won't. There will always be exceptions, and no two couples are exactly the same (even if their signs align are!).

With all of that disclosed, here are the 6 most compatible matches among zodiac signs, per astrology.

1. Cancer (June 21 - July 22) and Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Cancers and Libras are true soulmates, though many people will often pit them as incompatible based solely on the fact that Cancers are emotional and Libras prefer partners who are balanced. Here's the thing, though: Cancers are one of the most grounded signs in the Zodiac. Their main objective in life is to have a home and a family and a stable life in which they can thrive.

They crave and try their best to create the exact kind of stability that Libras also want, and the truth is that both signs desire this because of their rich internal life, and how confusing and complex their emotions can be. Libras are what Cancers look up to; Cancers are more practical whereas Libras can be air-headed.

The two are a match made in heaven for creating a life in which both parties feel settled, cared for, and empowered.

2. Aries (March 21 - April 19) and Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

The Aries is practical where the Gemini is a dreamer. The Aries guides with logic whereas the Gemini believes in their emotions. Though the two are very different, they are easily taken with one another.

Aries aspire to the kind of inspired, charming lightness that Geminis dance through life with, while Geminis are easily turned on by an Aries ability to exude strength and make decisions regardless of how they feel. They both enjoy deep thought, new experiences and standing out from the crowd in some way.

Together, they accomplish this and balance one another beautifully, making them two of the most compatible zodiac signs.

3. Leo (July 23 - August 22) and Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

What Leos and Sags have in common is that they are both driven foremost by their identities. They both take pride in themselves as individuals, and when they commit, they commit completely.

They are territorial, protective and selfless when it comes to giving their lives to the people they love. That's what makes them work as a pair so well, as they balance one another (the Sag gives depth where the Leo gives lightheartedness) but also they are so aligned on what matters most to them that they can intertwine their lives together nicely.

Leos and Sagittarians both have very strong personalities, however. So a relationship between them is either going to follow immaculately, or they are going to strongly dislike each other. It's polarized like these two tend to be, but ultimately when you find the right Leo/Sag pair, they make one of the most magnetizing couples alive.

4. Taurus (April 20 - May 20) and Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

What Tauruses and Virgos have in common is an idealistic view of life. They are both perfectionists. Certainly, this can also be the source of a lot of bickering, but ultimately, it's their very dreamy ideas about what life should be that bonds them in a way that other people wouldn't understand.

The Taurus is the dreamer while the Virgo is the doer. The Taurus will be loyal in the way the Virgo needs, and the Virgo will be adventurous and grounded in the way the Taurus needs. They are a pair of opposites, but that's why it works. They'd implode if they were with someone too like themselves.

The Taurus will help quell the Virgos incessant anxiety and the Virgo will help the Taurus appreciate life in all its imperfect parts.

5. Aquarius (January 20 - February 18) and Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Aquarius and Capricorn are a match made in heaven. They are especially ideal as business partners and life partners.

While the Aquarius will be easily preoccupied with big ideas and coming up with new, innovative, existential ways to improve their lives, the Capricorn is doing the on-the-ground work. They are making sure there is a practical way to get those big ideas implemented, they are also the ones making sure the Aquarius doesn't go too far off the deep end.

Overall, these two need each other to really fulfill their dreams. The Aquarius pushes the Capricorn and the Capricorn grounds the Aquarius. However, it is essential that these two share common beliefs and ideas about life (both existential and not) because if they don't "get" each other, they will be on two totally different planets.

6. Pisces (February 19 - March 20) and Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Pisces and Scorpio have more in common than it would seem on the surface, they just simply express their deep emotions differently. The reality is that a Pisces will thrive with a partner who is consumed by and obsessed with them. A Scorpio will be inspired by someone who is both deeply aware of their feelings, yet at the same time expressive about them in a non-aggressive way.

Together, they can create a truly explosive and passionate partnership, one in which they understand each other in a way nobody else quite can.

Pisces and Scorpios seem incompatible on the surface because Pisces can be too sensitive and Scorpios too harsh, but deep down, a Pisces understands how the Scorpio feels, and the Scorpio responds warmly when they feel truly seen, understood, and beyond all else: wanted.
