If you want to find your “perfect match” in life, try a new approach and look for someone born under the same sun as you. It turns out that people with similar birth signs can be more compatible than we think. Here’s what astrologers have learned about matching up these two planets.
You’ve probably heard the term “astronomic” thrown around here and there. But it doesn’t mean anything (other than the fact that some people claim that the stars influence their love lives).
However, if you’re looking to find your “perfect match,” you might want to give this kind of astrology a shot.
The most popular astrological personality types are the four classical signs found in Western culture (including China):
- Aries – March 21-April 19
- Taurus – April 20-May 20
- Gemini – May 21-June 20
- Cancer – June 21-July 22
- Leo – July 23-August 22
- Virgo – August 23-September 22
- Libra – September 23-October 22
- Scorpio – October 23-November 21
- Sagittarius – November 22-December 21
- Capricorn – December 22-January 20
- Aquarius – January 21-February 18
- Pisces – February 19-March 20

But don’t stop there! If you would like an even better idea of whether or not you’ll be able to get along well together, check out this compatibility test from the website Astrolabe.com.
Click on any of the six signs below to see where they stand on the various scales. Then click the “Find Your Match” button at the bottom of the page to see how other people scored. And if you’d rather skip the math, just read the descriptions of each scale, pick the ones that seem to apply to your relationship, and then scroll down until you see the number of people who shared your birth date.
Some people may find that the results aren’t all that clear-cut. For example, while Aries and Sagittarius will likely be compatible, Taurus and Scorpio may not.
How Are Your Birth Dates Related?
So what do you need to know to determine which of these is right for you? Well, first things first: the sun, moon, earth, and the five traditional planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn) all orbit the earth. We call them the “planets” because we think they move around the sun like little wagons going around a track – but it’s much closer to the truth to say that the sun is a planet, too!
The sun was created by God when He divided Himself into light and darkness. This light is our soul, which is why we’re sometimes called “the lights.” Our planet orbits the sun, which means that we live according to the energy and light gave off by this star.
This light comes in different colors, so the sun has four seasons based on its relative position to us. When the sun moves higher in the sky, it begins heating up and giving off yellowish rays. It turns redder when it gets lower in the sky and gives off orangey rays. Finally, when the sun is directly overhead, it becomes white and gives off blueish rays.
All of these colors correspond to the four classical temperaments:
- Fire: fiery, impulsive, and passionate.
- Air: imaginative, intellectual, and optimistic
- Earth: practical, materialistic, and realistic
- Water: emotional, sensitive, and dreamy
As you can guess, fire is the most common temperament, followed by air, water, and finally, earth. So, now that we know how the sun interacts with us, let’s look at how other planets interact.
Compatible or Not Compatible?
The planets have seven different aspects: When one world is directly opposite another in the sky, this is referred to as opposition.
- Trine – When two planets are in the same house and aspect each other
- Quincunx – When two planets are exactly opposite in the sky
- Square – When two planets are in the same place and square one another
- Segment – When two planets are 180 degrees apart and aspect each other
- Conjunction – When two planets are in the same degree and characteristic of each other
- Inconjunct – When two planets are in the same degree but opposite each other
These aspects influence every part of our lives, including everything from our health and spirituality to our relationships and careers. If you understand the different elements, you can start to understand what it all means for yourself and others.
For example, if you’re in a long-distance relationship, both lovers may be in Capricorn, which could create problems in the future since Capricorns are known to be stubborn and conservative. On the other hand, if one person is in Cancer and the other is in Sagittarius, this could lead to great romance and excitement in the future.
Sagittarians & Capricorns
Both Capricorns and Sagittarians are very independent, so they prefer being alone over spending time with others. They also tend to be stubborn and reserved, but when they meet someone with whom they share complementary traits, they’re usually drawn to one another.
Aries vs. Pisces
Aries and Pisces both represent the element of water, and people born under either sign feel strongly connected to the ocean and rivers. As such, many Aries and Pisces are attracted to one another since they share a deep connection to nature.
Taurus vs. Gemini
Since the Taurus and Gemini signs are both associated with the earth, these couples would probably be quite grounded and stable in their romantic relationships. The only difference between Taurus and Gemini couples is that the former tends to be quite severe and unadventurous, whereas Geminis are always ready for new experiences.
Cancer vs. Leo
Leos and Cancers represent the elements Fire and Air, respectively. Since both of these elements are closely linked to creativity and innovation, it makes sense that Leos and Cancers would often be attracted to one another.
Scorpios & Aquarius
Scorpios and Aquarians, like Cancers, share the element air, and their personalities reflect this, as both signs are known for being independent and creative. However, while Leos and Cancers focus more on personal fulfillment, Scorpios and Aquarians are more interested in exploring new ideas and ideas outside of themselves.
Leo vs. Virgo
People born under the Leo sign are generally outgoing and charismatic, while those born under the Virgo sign are usually reserved and quiet. These traits can work well together since Virgos are known for being loyal and trustworthy partners. However, because the personalities of Leo and Virgo are so dissimilar, it isn’t easy to imagine two people who are more distinct than two Virgos and a Leo.
Pisces vs. Libra
Pisceans and Libras have a strong affinity for the element Water, and this connection draws them together.
