Australian astrologer Rose Smith (pictured) revealed the most compatible star signs
An astrologer has revealed the most compatible star sign pairings – and the ones that are best avoided.
Australian astrologer Rose Smith explained that the stars can tell us a lot about compatibility in our relationships, and whether we we are likely to have a happy or turbulent time with our significant other.
‘With love on the minds of many around Valentine’s Day we do have an increased number of people coming to us with questions about current, past and potential future relationships,’ Rose, who runs Absolute Soul Secrets, told FEMAIL.
So who does your sign match with?
Aries is traditionally seen as a ‘masculine or yang fiery cardinal sign’ according to Rose, which means they are ‘active, passionate and independent with strong opinions’ (stock image)
ARIES (MARCH 21 – APRIL 19):
Aries is traditionally seen as a ‘masculine or yang fiery cardinal sign’ according to Rose, which means they are ‘active, passionate and independent with strong opinions’.
‘They need partners who understand them and don’t try to dampen their fiery nature,’ she explained.
Fire signs such as Aries, Leo and Sagittarius therefore make good partners, but she warned arguments are likely.
‘Air signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius feed fire but Libra is opposite Aries on the Zodiac wheel so this match could bring difficulties,’ she said.
‘Gemini is a good bet.’
TAURUS (APRIL 20 – MAY 20):
On the other hand, Taurus is a ‘feminine yin earth fixed sign’, Rose said.
‘This means they are generally inward-focused, practical and self-directed, verging on stubborn sometimes.’
Relationships with earth signs like Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn can work, but care needs to be taken to stop such signs from getting stuck in a rut or bogged down with depression.
‘Relationships with water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces can add emotional connection, which is needed for balance, but Scorpio’s opinions can bring clashes,’ Rose said.
Cancer can also work.
GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 20):
‘Gemini is a mutable yang air sign, making Geminis outgoing, communicative and flexible,’ Rose said.
‘They can be quite intellectual and like to think and strategise about most things.’
Rose highlighted air signs like Gemini, Libra and Aquarius as good matches as there is plenty of conversation, but also said ‘some level of detachment can also occur’.
‘Fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are attractive, but with Sagittarius there are tendencies for a lot of change, like it or not,’ she said.
If you are a Gemini, you may find a Leo match is your best bet.
Being a yin cardinal Water sign, Cancerians are often self-reflective, emotional and pioneering or instigating, Rose said (stock image)
CANCER (JUNE 21 – JULY 22):
Being a yin cardinal Water sign, Cancerians are often self-reflective, emotional and pioneering or instigating, Rose said.
‘They find support with water sings like Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, but these unions can be hard work and emotional at times,’ she said.
They might be better off opting for an Earth sign like Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn – which offer the ‘grounding’ that an emotional Cancer needs.
‘Capricorn can be too serious or conservative for Cancer’s liking,’ Rose said.
Virgo or Taurus are good prospects.
LEO (JULY 23 – AUGUST 22):
‘Leo is a fixed yang fire sign, which is outgoing, warm and often has strong opinions,’ Rose said.
‘Though good relationships are possible with other fire signs Leo, Sagittarius and Aries, arguments can quickly blow up as fire signs are emotionally volatile,’ Rose said.
On the other hand, unions with air signs like Gemini, Libra and Aquarius can work well.
‘Both Leo and Aquarius can tend toward fixed opinions which can create conflict,’ Rose said.
Relationships with Librans are likely to be the most passionate and overall harmonious.
VIRGO (AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22):
As an earth sign that is thoughtful, careful and discriminating, Virgo can enjoy good relationships with other earth signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.
But they need to guard against getting stuck in a rut and boredom.
‘Water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces offer a real sense of connection but sometimes Pisces might be a bit too much to handle,’ Rose said.
Scorpio relationships could be fantastic, while Cancer could be good also.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 22):
Librans are cardinal air signs who loves beauty, peace and most of all love.
‘Librans are in love with the idea of love and can therefore enjoy wonderful relationships with other air signs like Libra, Gemini and Aquarius,’ Rose highlighted.
The biggest possible issue a Libran can run into a sense of detachment.
‘Fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius make good partners, but there can be strong clashes with Aries sometimes,’ Rose said.
If you’re a Libran, it’s likely you’ll be attracted to a Leo.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23 – NOVEMBER 21):
Scorpios are fixed yin water signs who focus on inner reflection and intense emotions.
They are often ‘magnetically attractive’ and can make good partners to Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.
‘There can be a lot of emotionality in these relationships, which means these relationships often end up deep,’ Rose said.
‘Earth signs like Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn help to ground Scorpio in practical reality, but Taurus can seem somewhat conservative to Scorpio.’
Virgo and Capricorn make excellent partners for a Scorpio.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21):
‘Sagittarius is a yang mutable fire sign, being adventurous and expansive,’ Rose said.
‘Sagittarius enjoys freedom and needs an open-minded partner so fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are good potential partners although relations with fire signs can bring passion and volatility.’
They may work better with an air sign like Gemini, Libra and Aquarius, but fiery clashes can occur with a Gemini.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19):
Capricorn is a cardinal earth sign that is solid, dependable and hard-working.
‘Relationships with earth signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn can work well as you both work towards the same things,’ Rose said.
But like with some of the other signs, with Capricorn and these signs, there is a risk of getting bogged down in work commitments and seriousness.
‘You could have more fun with water signs like Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, which all complement Capricorn,’ Rose said.
‘Cancer matches can sometimes bring too much emotionality for Capricorns, so Scorpio and Pisces are the best partnership bets.’
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18):
Aquarius is a fixed air sign that is sociable, innovative and humanitarian.
Rose said the air signs such as Gemini, Libra and another Aquarius all make good partners, but the only risk is that you chat for hours and hours and don’t get much done.
‘Fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius can make great partners, but Leo can sometimes be a bit over-opinionated,’ Rose said.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20):
Pisces is a mutable water sign that is emotional, intuitive and creative.
‘Water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are suitable for deep and passionate relationships, however sometimes there can be too much emotion coming to the surface,’ Rose said.
‘Earth signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn provide stability and grounding bringing balance, but Virgo may find Pisces intensity a bit much sometimes.’
