The stars can help you find your perfect match if you’re looking for a romantic partner. But how do you know if they’ll be compatible?
Whether it’s a celebrity relationship that makes headlines or an everyday romance that gets us all excited, we love watching people fall in love — and sometimes, we’re interested in what makes them fall so hard.
There are many ways to learn about someone’s zodiac sign and personality type, which will give you insight into whether or not a potential partner is right for you.
But how do you know if two signs are meant to be together? And how can you tell when two characters are incompatible?
Zodiac Signs and Compatibility
Astrological signs aren’t random numbers (like Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius). They represent traits and characteristics based on the sun’s position at the time of birth.
Your sign influences your likes and dislikes, behaviors, career goals, and personality. Based on your star sign, you may have different expectations from a romantic relationship than others. If you have Gemini rising, you may be more open-minded toward new things and less attached to routine. When you get Cancer rising, however, you may be more emotional and feel strongly about relationships, family, and home life.
Some signs are considered “fixed” because they take the same personality throughout their lifetimes, while others change over time. The following symptoms tend to stay consistent.
- Aries: Stubborn and adventurous
- Taurus: Loyal and nurturing
- Gemini: Curious and curious
- Cancer: Emotional and caring
- Leo: Dominant and strong-willed
- Virgo: Independent and perfectionist
- Libra: Compassionate and peaceful
- Scorpio: Mysterious and secretive
- Sagittarius: Adventurous and optimistic
- Capricorn: Steady and traditional
- Aquarius: Free and fun-loving
- Pisces: Kind and sensitive
While these signs are generally consistent, it means nothing to say a Taurus will always act like a Taurus. It also doesn’t mean you can’t expect some variation in the other signs.
Zodiac Relationships FAQs
Here are some common questions and answers about astrology and its influence on relationships:
Is there any scientific evidence that astrology is accurate and reliable?
Yes. Research has shown that astrology predicts earthquakes, stock market fluctuations, and weather patterns. However, research hasn’t shown that it reliably predicts human behavior. While it might be possible to use astrology to predict certain aspects of a person’s personality, it isn’t very accurate most of the time.
The Best Way to Figure out Your Star’s Personality Type
You can determine a person’s personality type by taking a reading using one of several tools. One method is to use a tool called the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), which is used to classify people into 16 categories. The other primary way to figure out a person’s personality is through the Enneagram Method.
The MBTI takes roughly 20 minutes to complete. Once you select your type, you can learn more about yourself by answering questions about your personal history, habits, values, and opinions. This information helps you understand why you behave the way you do.
How Do You Know When Two Signs Are Right For Each Other?
To see if the two signs would be compatible, you need to look at their strengths and weaknesses individually. Take note of the following signs and traits: Aries: intuitive, competitive, independent, and impulsive.
- Taurus: Sensitive, loyal, protective, and patient
- Gemini: Adaptable, curious, enthusiastic
- Cancer: Homebody, compassionate, nurturing
- Leo: Bold, dominant, creative, artistic
- Virgo: Hardworking, organized, detail-oriented
- Libra: Diplomatic, caring, thoughtful
- Scorpio: Strong-willed, mysterious, secretive
- Sagittarius: Adventurous, spontaneous, optimistic
- Capricorn: Staid, serious, practical
- Aquarius: Free-spirited, liberal, unconventional
- Pisces: Creative, intuitive, compassionate
Look at each trait and assign a number between 1 and 10 to describe how important it is to your ideal partner. Then, add the sum of the numbers for each trait to determine your compatibility score.
How Do You Know When Two Signs Are Right For Each Other?
It’s best to avoid signing up for dating sites specifically targeted to your zodiac sign, but here are some general tips to keep in mind: Match up with similar characters in terms of traits and interests. You don’t want to end up with a Libra, which is all about work and money, and a Scorpio, which is all about sex.
Think about the compatibility of your zodiac sign with those around you. If you have a lot of friends and family born under the same character, you probably won’t be as picky about finding a partner with another character.
Don’t be afraid to ask your parents for guidance. Parents often have good instincts about what they think would make a good match.
Are There Any Rules of Conduct in Dating Someone With Another Planet as Their Birthday?
No. You should never date someone whose birthday is close to yours, regardless of planet alignment. Even if your birthday is the day before theirs, it’s still too much of a coincidence and could affect both of you.
Can I Use Astrology to Find Love Online or On TV Shows Like “Dancing with the Stars”?
