We can't always help it, but we all have that one person we just can't get along with. You might have tried for a while to get to know them and try to be their friend, but after enough failed attempts, you're bound to give up on this person.

Some zodiac signs are like this – it doesn't matter how hard they try, they just never get along or see eye to eye with each other. Depending on what your zodiac sign is, there's another zodiac sign out there who you're destined to always fight with.

You might get along with every other zodiac sign, but this one sign is always a pain in your butt. As an Aquarius, I have a hard time with people who tell me what to do or try to make it seem like they're the only one who is allowed to be in control.

In my opinion, one of the zodiac signs I find does this a lot is Taurus. I have dated a Taurus before, and let me tell you, there was a lot of fighting between us. It almost felt like he disagreed with me just because at times.


He didn't always have a reason to fight with me on things, but it felt like his natural, knee-jerk reaction was to go the opposite way of what I was saying. And even worse, he made me feel like he was the one who knew better, which was his excuse for always arguing with me.

It was exhausting and made me realize that maybe Taurus and Aquarius aren't the best match. Sure, there were times when we tried getting to the root of the problem and talking things out instead of automatically jumping into an argument, but if there's a zodiac sign that rubs you the wrong way all the time, you know how difficult it can be to not want to fight right away.

If you're in a relationship with someone you always fight with – and you want to try to make it work between your two horoscope signs – start by trying to talk things over. Try to see what could be bothering your partner from his point of view, rather than making it all about you.

Relationships need communication, after all, and if you constantly find yourself becoming defensive or stonewalling the conversation, the relationship is only going to get worse. For these zodiac couples, it's possible to work things out, as long as you're both willing to make an effort.


That said, it doesn't stop them from always butting heads anyway. Here are why certain couples can't stop fighting, according to astrology.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19) + CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Aries' impatience and impulsivity never seems to mix well with Capricorn's thoughtfulness and reserved personality. It's basically like putting oil and vinegar together. Sure, you can shake it up and it'll blend a little, but they were meant to be apart.

Capricorn tends to approach problems in a more sensitive way, while Aries likes to get everything on the table up front in the most honest way possible. This brusqueness tends to make Capricorn clam up, which only produces more issues – and fighting – for this couple.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) + AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Taurus is very traditional when it comes to dating, usually preferring to talk about finances, living arrangements, and the future as a couple at the beginning of the relationship. Aquarius, on the other hand, doesn't like to live by society's rules, instead preferring to take each thing as it comes.

The reason this couple fights so much is because Taurus embraces vulnerability, while Aquarius shies away from it. Instead of being able to openly talk about whatever's bothering them, Aquarius prefers to work through problems alone, which makes Taurus frustrated that they're never going to crack that hard outer shell.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) + PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces often struggles to understand Gemini. Because Gemini can be pretty inconsistent, restless, and counterintuitive, Pisces feels like it's impossible to have a true heart-to-heart with this sign. Pisces prefers serious, heartfelt conversations, but Gemini likes to take things lightly – without too much pressure to be someone they're not.

In Gemini's eyes, though, Pisces is the one who doesn't understand. Rather than listening to what they have to say – really listening – Pisces has a tendency to make a problem or conversation about themselves. This only leads to fighting and even more emotional distance.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22) + LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Cancer is incredibly loyal and devoted in their relationships – whether they last a long time, or they fizzle out. To Cancer, each relationship deserves a fighting chance. While Libra can agree to that, they tend to prefer relationships that have no problems whatsoever – which is obviously impossible. Libra has a hard time agreeing with Cancer's constant pushing to move things to the next level, which often leads to arguments.

The other reason this couple fights so much is because Libra's passiveness and constant search for balance makes it seem like they're hesitating to actually move forward with the relationship. While Libra can be very affectionate, Cancer worries that they don't really care about having a real relationship, just someone to keep them company.

LEO (July 23 - August 22) + SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Leo and Scorpio often butt heads when in a relationship together because both are very fierce and passionate. When you bring two very strong energies together, it often results in a lot of push-back. Both are notorious for having assertive, stubborn attitudes when people try to disagree with them.


While Leo likes being the leader, Scorpio has a hard time letting someone else tell them what to do. You'll often see fights between these two that stem from a need for control and a refusal to relinquish any control for fear of looking weak or compliant. Did I mention communication isn't always great between these two, either? It's inevitable that this couple will fight.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) + SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Virgo tries to be practical in everything they do in life, and relationships are no exception. While it may seem eccentric to some, Virgo prefers to be as logical and by-the-book as possible in their relationship, even if it makes them seem a little mechanical. To them, it's safe and makes sense.


Of course, it doesn't make sense to Sagittarius, who prefers to write their own rules to their relationship. Sagittarius needs their freedom as well, which Virgo feels is a way for Sagittarius to not be in the relationship 100 percent. The fighting often centers around whether or not either zodiac sign is serious about the relationship or if it's just a waste of time for them both.
