Selena Gomez zodiac compatibility

Gomez's relationships have long been scrutinized, especially her fraught relationship with Justin Bieber which continues to make headlines today despite their final breakup in 2018 and Bieber's subsequent marriage to Hailey Bieber. Selena has also famously dated The Weeknd and Orlando Bloom.

A highly emotional zodiac sign, Cancers prefer stable and nurturing relationships. As a water sign, they're extremely intuitive and selfless and often fear letting their partner down. 

Zodiac compatibility reveals that Selena's most compatible match is Capricorn and the least compatible with Aries. When it comes to zodiac compatibility, it's not just the Sun signs that determine compatibility. Venus and Mars sign combinations also play a role. Selena's Leo Venus is most compatible with Aries Mars. 

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber zodiac compatibility

Justin Bieber's zodiac sign is Pisces, another water sign. Though two water signs together may create a mutual understanding, at times it just creates far too much emotion that's left unregulated, which can lead to a codependent relationship and constant overstepping of boundaries. Bieber's Mars is in Aquarius, a sign that's known for being emotionally detached. Though loyal in friendships, Mars in Aquarius finds it hard to commit romantically.

When it comes to synastry, which reveals how two people's birth charts interact, Selena and Justin, unfortunately, have many bad synastry aspects. For example, Selena's Pluto squares Justin's Mars. This is an aspect known to create strong sexual attraction but also issues with anger and control. They also have opposing Moon signs which means they each have a tendency to misunderstand and misinterpret the other's feelings.

Overall, Selena and Justin are more alike than they are different. But because they're both such sensitive individuals, this likeness isn't necessarily good for a romantic relationship.

Selena Gomez and The Weeknd zodiac compatibility

Abel Tesfaye, known as The Weeknd, has his Sun sign in Aquarius. With Selena's Sun in Cancer needing a lot of reassurance in relationships, it's not a great match with The Weeknd's emotionally detached Aquarius Sun. Interestingly, The Weeknd has a Capricorn stellium, including personal planets Mars and Venus. Though The Weeknd's Capricorn Mars complements Selena's Leo Venus, his Capricorn Venus sign may make him too cold and standoffish in relationships, which can trigger Selena's Cancer Sun's insecurities.

According to their synastry chart, Selena and The Weeknd have more easy and harmonious aspects than anything else. However, the two broke up in 2017, and Selena began dating Justin again.
