How The Zodiac Signs Bond With Others.
Zodiac

As humans, we crave connections with others on a deeper level. We want to be able to trust someone with our thoughts, secrets, and emotions. If you’re going to bond with someone, it helps if it’s something you both want.

Everybody has their way of bonding, and it can be obvious or more subtle. If you say, “Hey do you want to be my new best friend?” your goal is clear. But if you say, “I like weird museums too,” that might be a little harder to decipher.

Using astrology as a guide, the zodiac signs all have a specific way of bonding with another person. Some are hesitant to bond with someone else after being hurt in the past, while others form bonds that last a lifetime.

When you bond with someone, you're taking a chance that they won’t be a jerk and leave you worse off than before you knew them. Sometimes the relationships we create from the bond last for all our lives, and sometimes they only last for a limited time. But that doesn’t mean the effort wasn’t worth it.

 

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries bond with people by doing something adventurous. They prefer like-minded people who like to take risks and are up for anything. They might do zip-lining, swimming the sharks, cliff-diving, or even trying a new dance or workout class.

Aries have very little fear, so if they're going to bond with someone, they're going to need to know how they react with new challenges.

Signs they bond with the best: Gemini and Libra. Aries bonds with Gemini because they're enthusiastic and flexible, and Libra because they're fun and allow Aries to be themselves without judgment.

Signs they bond with the worst: Cancer and Capricorn. Aries has a difficult time bonding with Cancer because they find them too dependent, and Capricorn is too much of a rule follower for Aries liking.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Usually, Taurus bond over a meal. It can be a homecooked meal or a meal in a restaurant, but enjoying delicious food and drink allows them to loosen up and relax.

When Taurus is chill, they're able to really listen to the person and take their time getting to know them. They are very determined, and if their goal is to create a bond with someone, they're not going to stop until they've achieved it.

Signs they bond with the best: Cancer and Pisces. Taurus bonds with Cancer because are caring and protective, which Taurus appreciates, and Pisces because they're creative and have a deep appreciation for beauty. 

Signs they bond with the worst: Leo and Aquarius. Taurus has a harder time bonding with Aquarius because they are both stubborn and can lock horns, and Leo because they are headstrong and bossy, and Taurus don't like being told what to do.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis are very social and can talk to anyone, but when it comes to trusting someone enough to bond with them, that's going to take more effort. If Gemini wants to connect with someone, they'll probably ask a lot of very intelligent question regarding that person's life.

They will go beneath the regular surface questions and dive deep into questions about their families, significant others, and their emotional life.

Signs they bond with the best: Aries and Libra. Gemini bonds well with Aries because they both like to stretch their boundaries, and Libra because they both love good conversation and having fun.

Signs they bond with the worst: Virgo and Capricorn. Gemini doesn't bond as easily with Virgos because both of them think they're the smartest person in the room, and Capricorn is a little too straight and rigid for Gemini.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers crave understanding and closeness, so to bond with someone, they will be open and honest about the hardships they've experienced in their life, and they'll encourage the other person to do the same.

Cancers listen intently, and because of their honesty, they encourage the other person to share things that harmed them and tell how those experiences shaped them.

Signs they bond with the best: Gemini and Scorpio. Cancer bonds with Gemini because Gemini encourages them to get out of their shell, and they bond with Scorpio because they're both passionate and can go deep when it comes to talking about their feelings.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos are all about gifts and presents, so naturally, when they want to get closer to someone, they give them thoughtful gifts. These gifts can be small tokens of affection or bigger presents for no reason. 

Sometimes, those gifts are tangible; other times, they're equally as precious because they're things like time, energy, and understanding. 

Signs they bond with the best: Libra and Capricorn. Leo bonds easily with Libra because they both have a clear sense of what's right and wrong, and with Capricorn because both are goal-oriented. 

Signs they bond with the worst: Virgo and Aquarius. Leo doesn't bond as easily with Virgo because they feel a bit threatened by them, and Aquarius because they are too independent and unpredictable.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo finds a way to be indispensable to the person they want to bond with. Since Virgos can fix almost anything, it's easy to get into the habit of trusting them to save the day.

The philosophy is: help someone out enough times and they're going to not only depend on you but trust you as well. Virgos are practical and will always do their absolute best to help.

Signs they bond with the best: Cancer and Capricorn. Virgo bonds easily with Cancer because they are understanding and help Virgo with self-acceptance, and they bond with Capricorn because they both are resourceful and ambitious. 

Signs they bond with the worst: Sagittarius and Pisces. Virgo has trouble bonding with Sagittarius because they don't get the feeling that Sagittarius would be there if they were needed, and Pisces can be hard to relate to because they prefer to escape to somewhere in their head.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras bond with people by doing something kind — not just once and not just when requested, but all the time. Libras seem to have an instinct for what people need, even if the person doesn't know it themselves.

They will stand beside you when you need support, or they'll pick you up when your car runs out of gas.

Signs they bond with the best: Pisces and Gemini. Libra bonds easily with Pisces because they're both creative and have their own unique ways of looking at life, and Gemini because they are fun and can confide in others without worry.

Signs they bond with the worst: Cancer and Scorpio. Libra doesn't bond as well with Cancer because no matter how hard they try they always seem to rub Cancer the wrong way, and Scorpio because they don't communicate well.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios are very intuitive, so it may seem as if they can read people's minds to know exactly what they should do to bond. Scorpios aren't magical beings; they're just good listeners who can get to the heart of every problem.

They can be intense, and that goes for their caring, so don't be put off by their persistence at trying to bond with you.

Signs they bond with the best: Virgo and Cancer. Scorpio bonds easily with Virgo because they challenge each other intellectually, and Cancer because they connect on an emotional level.

Signs they bond with the worst: Leo and Aries. Scorpio has a harder time bonding with Leo because they're both somewhat arrogant and think they know best, and Aries because both are impatient and can be confrontational.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

What's the best way to get to know someone? Go on a trip with them. If you're still speaking at the end of the trip, your relationship will stand the test of time; if you can't stand each other, you won't waste any time trying to make a relationship that isn't meant to be.

It doesn't have to be a long trip — it can just be a weekend away. Anything that has a few bumps in the road will do for Sagittarius.

Signs they bond with the best: Aries and Gemini. Sagittarius bond easily with Aries because they both have wanderlust and love to go off on adventures, and Gemini because both love to have new experiences and hate to be bored.

Signs they bond with the worst: Cancer and Pisces. Sagittarius has a hard time bonding with Cancer because they require too much emotional attention for Sagittarius' liking, and Pisces tend to bother optimistic Sagittarius with their pessimism.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns tend to bond when they're in a shared space with someone, like a co-worker or a roommate. Proximity can make a bond, and since it takes time for a Capricorn to feel comfortable enough to open up, being in the same space with someone will help them to relax and be themselves.

This is also why it's easier for Capricorns to bond with people who have been in their sphere for a while, such as friends of the family, or friends of friends.

Signs they bond with the best: Leo and Cancer. Capricorns bond easily with Leos because both of them are goal-orientated and driven, and Cancer because they have a huge capacity of understanding that Capricorn craves.

Signs they bond with the worst: Libra and Gemini. Capricorns have a hard time bonding with Libra because they can seem lazy, and Gemini because they're often too frenetic and unfocused.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius are well known for their ability to make friends — they can find something to like about almost anyone. However, Aquarius is a bit more cautious when it comes to trusting people enough to bond with them.

They will usually plan several activities the two can do together — cooking a meal, going on a hike, or volunteering at an animal rescue. When Aquarius is comfortable enough to be their authentic self, it's easy to bond with them.

Signs they bond with the best: Gemini and Sagittarius. Aquarius has an easy time bonding with Gemini because they are creative and open-minded, and Sagittarius because they're independent and clever.

Signs they bond with the worst: Taurus and Cancer. Aquarius has a harder time bonding with Taurus because they can be overly-cautious and too practical, and Cancer because they're too emotional for the sometimes emotionally disconnected Aquarius.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces bonds with people over shared interests. Maybe they like the same bands, TV shows, or movies. It's not unlike Pisces to have a gathering of friends over to bond over something they're all interested, in like Marvel movies or the big game.

They get excited when they get a chance to talk about something they love with other people who like the same things. If the people share the same creative talents or have abilities that complement Pisces' skills, even better.

Signs they bond with the best: Capricorn and Scorpio. Pisces have an easier time bonding with Capricorn because Capricorn helps them get out and be productive, and Scorpio because both signs are extremely passionate.

Signs they bond with the worst: Leo and Sagittarius. Pisces have a difficult time bonding with Leos because they seem to always be creating drama, and Sagittarius because they can be tactless and insensitive at times.
