Cancer and Aquarius

Those with birthdays between January 20th and February 18th are born under the sign of Aquarius and they just love their space. They love to be free and need their alone time. Those born under Cancer between June 21st and July 22nd, however, are typically homebodies. They’re considered the most loving of all the zodiac signs and are particularly sensitive. So sensitive in fact they can be pretty defensive and like the crab that represents Cancer they can put up a hard exterior. This makes it a pretty tough match with an Aquarius. The relationship can work if the Cancer can embrace freedom a bit more and if the Aquarius can feel more satisfied at home.

Taurus and Aries

What happens when you get one person who is stubborn like a typical Taurus and one person who is very strong-willed like your average Aries? A nightmare of a relationship. That’s what Aries, who are born between March 21st and April 19th don’t mind a confrontation or two like their symbol. The ram Taureans who are born between April 20th and May 20th resolutely won’t budge from their own view like the bull. That represents them, so a relationship between these two signs isn’t likely to involve much compromise or flexibility. Another reason for disaster is that Aries are independent while Torians are so committed they can become a bit clingy.

Scorpio and Leo

Leos, who are born between July 23rd and August 22nd are outgoing and typically love to flirt. This can be a striking point for Scorpios born between October 23rd and November 21st, because they can get pretty jealous and find it hard to trust. Scorpios are also stubborn, which can be problematic for Leos, who are so self-assured they also like to get their own way. Leos love to be the center of attention and adore compliments, but Scorpios aren’t necessarily going to be giving those out. So, readily both signs are passionate and fun, but they can clash. Scorpios passion can tip over into power struggles, while Leos are all about being part of a power couple.

Libra and Virgo

If you have one sign that has a tendency to put themselves down like Libras with another sign that has a tendency to be critical like Virgos, it can clearly be a recipe for trouble. Libra is born between September 23rd and October 22nd, like to be carefree and enjoy the beauty and romance of life, so they can find analytical Virgos born between August 23rd and September 22nd a little too upright for their liking. Virgos want to organize and approach relationships with logic while Libras want to drive right into the feelings and celebrate love without analyzing whether the relationship is going well or not. And chances are it won’t be.

Capricorn and Gemini

There are so many ways that Capricorns and Geminis clash it’s a wonder any two people under these signs can ever make it work with the other. Firstly, Capricorn is the most serious sign of the zodiac, while Gemini is the most easy-going. Geminis, who are born between May 21st and June 20th are all about adventure and excitement, which can make it tricky for them to settle down. Capricorn, who were born between December 22nd and January 19th are responsible, like to be organized and expect a lot from their partner that can be difficult for a Gemini, who gets bored easily. Plus, Geminis love fun and unusual dates, whereas Capricorns are very traditional.

Sagittarius and Cancer

Trying to make a relationship work when one of you wants to explore and do new things while the other wants to stay at home is never going to be easy. That’s what those born under Sagittarius and those born under Cancer have to contend with. Sagittarians, who are born between November 22nd and December 21st love to be free and love to travel. For those who are Cancer, however, life is all about being in love. It can be hard for a cancer to trust and the freedom-loving Sagittarius might give a Cancer plenty of reasons to feel jealous.

Pisces and Leo

Leo and Pisces should work together, but in reality they struggle. To Pisces, born between February 19th and March 20th a Leo might seem like a selfish partner, who can’t care as deeply as these gentle Pisces do. For Leo, a Pisces might seem too weak and not up to the self-assured level of Leo. The main issue is trust and that’s all to do with Neptune that is the planet of deceit and Neptune rules Pisces. Leo is the sign that represents the fall of Neptune, so it’s not surprising to hear that these two signs find it difficult to come to a position of mutual trust.

Aries and Scorpio

As we’ve already seen with Aries and Taurus, when you put two signs together that are stubborn and strong-willed, you don’t get a happy match. And given that Scorpios are also stubborn as anything they’re not going to get on with an Aries much better. Both of these zodiac signs want to be in control and it’s not likely that either one will break down. Sure they’re both passionate and intense, which can be a good thing, but it tips over in combative and explosive all too easily one thing is certain: there’s sure to be drama between these two signs.

Gemini and Cancer

They say opposites attract, but they don’t always manage to have good relationships. That’s shown perfectly by the combination of Gemini and Cancer. Their relationship can start out working, because of the Gemini’s tendency to be childlike and the Cancer’s tendency to be maternal. Both zodiac signs have a tendency to swing between moods and this can make them feel pulled together in their shared experience, but ultimately they are just too different. Reserved cancers desire to be peaceful and stable, clashing with sociable Gemini’s desire to try new things and propensity to become bored.

Virgo and Pisces

Finally, we have another set of opposites: Virgo and Pisces. These two zodiac signs are as far apart as you can get on the wheel yet they can be pulled together because of sheer fascination. Each has qualities that the other one lacks. Virgo can be critical, practical and a perfectionist, while Pisces is sensitive, light-hearted, and tends to go with the flow. These two signs are better off as friends.

Of course, your partner’s Sun sing cannot be the only indication of your compatibility, as there are a lot of other factors to be considered.
