How do I know if I am compatible with my partner? (The Sun Sign Compatibility Approach)

Love & Relationships

Love, relationships and compatibility are always on our minds. While falling in love doesn’t need a fancy algorithm, determining long-term compatibility sometimes does. However, our sun signs make the task a lot easier. They give all the information you’d ever need about the suitability of a potential match. In a relationship, the sun signs of the people involved determine their equation and prospects to a large extent. Here’s a list that will help you decide what your partner looks for in a relationship and whether you are astrologically suitable for each other.

Aries Compatibility (21 March- 20 April)

Aries is the infant of the zodiac, the first sign in this interesting chronology. For this reason, Arians often come across as childish or immature. In a relationship, your Aries lover will be bold, impulsive, playful and simply bursting with nervous energy. They can also be selfish, domineering and easily bored.  Arians love independence and demand a lot of ‘space’ in the relationship though they love to boss around their partners.  Make sure you don’t burden them with routines and duties.

Good with              :   Gemini, Libra, Aquarius

A complete no-no:   Virgo, Cancer, Capricorn


Taurus Compatibility (21 April-21 May)

Taureans dig sensual pleasures. If you are involved with one, ensure that you are well-groomed and dressed perfectly from head to toe. Do not forget to praise their choice of perfume, their hairdo, the tie. A Taurean is a great lover of money and constantly saves for the future. Appreciate this trait of your Taurean lover and start curbing unnecessary expenses if you wish to be in their good books. Though usually calm, they can be really hard to appease once angry!

Gemini Compatibility (22 May-21 June)

Geminis love their freedom. Any attempts to impose your will on them can only prove to be disastrous. Gemini is the sign of “change”. They have no memory of yesterday, nor do they particularly intend to. Your Gemini lover will be a hit with people of the opposite sex but that shouldn’t get you jealous since Geminis are naturally friendly and popular. However, ‘commitment’ is not exactly their favourite word. Because they are so volatile and can’t keep from bouncing from one object of desire to the other, your relationship might well be a failure if you do not keep them interested or intellectually challenged enough.

Cancer Compatibility (22 June- 22 July)

Cancerians live to commit and long for meaningful interactions more than meaningless flings. They will shower their significant others with love to the point of smothering. The trick is to not let your Cancerian lover fall into one of their “moods”, for they can be extremely difficult to handle once that happens.  Since they happen to be touchy, make sure you don’t criticize them unless you absolutely have to.

Good with              :   Virgo, Capricorn, Taurus

A complete no-no:   Aquarius, Libra, Gemini


Leo Compatibility (23 July-22 August)

Leo is the most powerful sign of the zodiac. Leos are dynamic, warm, regal, confident and enthusiastic. They can also be dominating, self-centred, short tempered. They long for power and influence. The key word with Leos is ‘flattery’. Flatter them once each day and you are good to go.. They constantly need to feel special and a class above the rest. Do not belittle them. It can turn your purring cat into a roaring beast.

Best with                :   Sagittarius, Aries

Good with              :   Gemini, Aquarius, Libra

A complete no-no:   Virgo, Taurus, Pisces


Virgo Compatibility (23 August- 23 September)

Extremely practical and cleanliness freaks. Virgo is the sign of idealism and perfection. They look for the ‘perfect’ partner. If you can’t look clean and orderly at all times, a Virgo partner is not for you. They might come across as picky and critical of every situation. They have quick minds and want a partner who can keep up with their wit and interests. Since they are prone to bouts of worry, calm your Virgo partner down and be patient with their needs.

Best with                :   Capricorn, Taurus

Good with              :   Scorpio, Pisces, Cancer

A complete no-no:   Leo, Gemini, Aries


Libra Compatibility (24 September- 23 October)

The sign of Libra spells love. They fall in love with an ease that is often surprising to those around them. To attract a Libran, you need to dress well, light scented candles and have some nice music playing in the background. Being an air sign, Librans are analytical and argumentative. Give them their space and time to pursue their numerous hobbies.

Best with                :   Aquarius, Gemini

Good with              :   Aries, Sagittarius, Leo

A complete no-no:   Cancer, Virgo, Taurus


Scorpio Compatibility (24 October- 22 November)

This is the sign of, well, sex. Scorpions are extremely interested in the opposite sex and are passionate in a relationship. Being a water sign, Scorpions can be extremely moody and sensitive to even the slightest of remarks. They are also brutally honest, stubborn and dominant in relationships. There is probably no other sign in the zodiac that can be as revengeful as a Scorpion and nobody else has such purely lustful needs as the Scorpion.

Best with                :   Pisces, Cancer

Good with              :   Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo

A complete no-no:   Leo, Gemini, Libra


Sagittarius Compatibility (23 November- 21 December)

Sagittarians are born flirts. They love to chase and hunt. They’re also wildly enthusiastic, deeply philosophical, fun-loving and extremely sharp. Though jealous by nature themselves, Sagittarians do not appreciate jealousy in their partners. They are friendly, wise, upbeat about life and very clumsy! Being fire signs, they crave admiration and praise. Make sure you provide those in healthy doses.

Best with                :   Leo, Aries

Good with              :   Gemini, Libra, Aquarius

A complete no-no:   Pisces, Virgo, Taurus


Capricorn Compatibility (22 December-20 January)

People born under this sign are receptive, introverted and sensitive. They are also disciplined in their personal and professional pursuits. On the one hand, they are humble and considerate as to the suffering of others. On the other, they can often be cold and selfish. Though they are serious, they get carefree and fun to be with as they grow up.

Best with                :   Taurus, Virgo

Good with              :   Scorpio, Cancer, Pisces

A complete no-no:   Leo, Libra, Gemini


Aquarius Compatibility (21 January-19 February)

This is the ‘eccentric’ sign. Aquarians are brilliant and individualistic to the point of being crazy. It takes a lot of time for them to fall in love. It is in their nature to analyze people, situation and events. Give your Aquarian mate a lot of freedom and space. They’re deeply private and reveal their inner most feelings once they’ve known someone for a long time.

Best with                :   Libra, Gemini

Good with              :   Leo, Sagittarius, Aries

A complete no-no:   Cancer, Pisces, Taurus


Pisces Compatibility (20 February- 20 March)

The dreamy, moody Piscean lives for love. Pisceans crave for meaningful, romantic relationships that last a life-time. They make supportive, generous, caring partners. They can easily get wounded through harsh words and are extremely careful to express their true feelings. In love, they listen to their heart more than their head. Be a patient listener to your Piscean partner and do not subject them to any criticism.
