Who knows… your love could be written in the stars.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Aries are known to forge their own path and go after what they want. And when they do, they jump in head first.
They are fiercely independent and impulsive, which leads them to approach others in a direct and no-nonsense manner. Sometimes their “act first, think later” mentality can lead them to be short-fused and cause their relationships to flame out.
However, Aries have high standards and the determination they need to meet those standards—allowing them to be go-getters when it comes to love. They are compatible with other outgoing signs, especially Sagittarius and Leo, and when they slow down and take the time to understand their partners, they often create high-quality relationships.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
A Taurus is honest, reliable, and steadfast. Their connection to the earth not only contributes to how grounded they are, but also also allows them to be in touch with their bodies—leading them to look for a physical connection in their relationships.
Wary of insecurity, they also look for relationships that are straightforward and without drama. These priorities allow Taurus to match well with Scorpios, as well as Cancers and Virgos.
However, Taurus must be careful to ensure that their steadfast nature doesn’t turn into stubbornness—which can prevent them from letting go of a relationship that has run its course.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Gemini are the twins of the zodiac—vibrant and fun-loving. Full of excitement, Gemini are happy and able to feel at home in all types of social settings.
They are optimistic, forward-facing, and often find their minds racing a million miles a minute—which can sometimes get them in trouble, when they say things with little thought beforehand. However, Gemini are hardly deterred by what others think of them.
They love to flirt and they love to love. Their flexibility makes them compatible with many signs, from Aries and Leo, to Sagittarius and Aquarius.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Cancers are known to be sentimental and self-protective. They are sensitive and emotionally intelligent, frequently able to tap into what others are feeling. Recognizing how others feel, Cancers often look for more meaningful conversations and connections, avoiding small talk and superficiality.
When it comes to love, Cancers look for long-term commitments and usually feel most comfortable when in a relationship. This attachment to being with someone else, combined with an aversion to conflict and a tendency to keep their own feelings guarded, can lead Cancers to stay in relationships that are no longer in their best interests.
However, when Cancers find someone they can open up to—as they often do with those born under Taurus, Pisces, and Capricorn—they can build the steady and deep relationships they desire.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Leos are warm, social, and loyal. They are confident and commonly become leaders of their social circles. As Leos don’t shy away from speaking their mind, they are sometimes criticized for being outspoken and dramatic. Despite this criticism, it is their sincerity that makes Leos genuine friends and partners.
For a Leo, the most enduring relationships come from those who can match their strong sense of self and outgoing personality.
As such, Leos are particularly compatible with independent and secure Aquarians and Geminis, as well as conflict-resolving Libras.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Virgos are careful and sophisticated. They tend to pursue perfectionism, which can sometimes lead them to be critical of themselves, take on more than they can manage, and come across as controlling.
However, Virgos are intelligent, organized, and take care in what they do. These qualities are the basis for their ambitious and hard-working spirit and their thorough eye for detail.
For a strong relationship, a Virgo needs a giving partner who can earn their trust, often a Cancer or a Pisces.
With a foundation of trust, Virgos feel more comfortable loosening up and showing their passionate side, which stems from Virgo’s connection to the earth.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Libras, symbolized by the scales of justice, are focused on understanding others and creating peace within their relationships. They are acutely aware of others’ conflicting interests and seek to balance the different needs of those they care about.
Though Libras seem confident on the surface and connect with all types of people, they are often searching to find themselves.
Preferring a lifelong relationship, Libras need intelligent and committed partners who encourage them to reflect on their own feelings—not just those of others. Geminis, Aries, and Sagittarians all support Libras well.
However, even with their partner's support, it is important Libras check in with their feelings often. When Libras lead with their minds instead of their hearts, they risk jeopardizing their relationships over practical matters, that, with a little work and creativity, can be overcome.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Scorpios value authenticity deeply. They always remain true to their feelings and are unafraid to speak up when they believe others are not being true to themselves. They are independent; so much so that others might consider them secretive.
While Scorpios may not immediately share what's on their minds, they are intensely aware of their feelings.
They love in extremes, and often prioritize intimacy. Bringing intensity to their relationships, Scorpios are especially compatible with people born under Cancer and Taurus.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Sagittarians, with their adventurous spirit, are the explorers of the zodiac. They are always open-minded and happy to try new things. While others might dread a change of plans, Sagittarians embrace it with open arms.
Sagittarians are self-assured, perfectly content telling stories and cracking jokes. While their unabashed interactions can sometimes offend, you can count on Sagittarians to be truthful and trustworthy.
In relationships, Sagittarians need a partner with a similarly undaunted and energetic outlook, making Aries and Geminis a good match. Sagittarians are free spirits—they can’t be tied down.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Capricorns are smart, hard-workers, who thrive when given structure. They love order and believe that with initiative and persistence, they can achieve their goals.
While it seems like Capricorns have it all together, their outward success sometimes fails to bring them internal happiness.
They can come across as serious and uncompromising, which is why they need a partner who understands them. Though they might not say how much they love their partner, they will always show their love through actions.
Capricorns' love of order, no-nonsense attitude, and sheltered inner-selves are qualities that lead them to match well with people born under Virgo, Taurus, and Cancer.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Aquarians are known for being entirely unafraid to push boundaries and go their own way.
Often putting others and their community before themselves, Aquarians are also known for their selflessness.
Combined with their idealism and ability to see the big picture, Aquarians are viewed as visionaries, able to create positive change. But Aquarians must be careful not to focus on their lofty ideas at the expense of their personal relationships.
Instead, they must find a partner that appreciates their strong sense of individuality and encourages them to pursue their goals, while also keeping them grounded. With their mutual appreciation for individuality, Leos and Sagittarians are particularly compatible with Aquarians.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Pisces are empathetic, creative, and care deeply for others. Guided by strong moral compasses and compassionate hearts, Pisces are able to give thoughtful and genuine advice, without passing judgement. Their ability to listen, relate, and forgive, allow them to build deep and lasting romantic relationships.
While at peace spending time alone, Pisces can sometimes find themselves getting lost in their own thoughts. For Pisces, it is important that they find a partner they share a true connection with and can open up to—making them especially compatible with those born under Virgo and Taurus.
