Knowing someone’s zodiac sign will give you great insight into your astrological compatibility. Although there are many other factors to consider, our star sign indicates how we express our character, our drives, passions, aspirations, and life goals.
It is not the same to relate to someone focused on material success and professional pursuits as it is to someone who lives a spontaneous life and travels the world in search of new adventures. Astrology offers us a great shortcut to determine if we will be compatible with someone or not. Each sign has an element (water, air, earth, and fire) and a modality (cardinal, fixed, or mutable) that reflects how we perceive reality and interpret our experiences.
We can draw upon these qualities to find out if we will share the same life goals with that person, have a lot to talk about, feel supported when sharing our feelings, or be in constant conflict.
Aries: These individuals are some of the most outgoing and confident. Aries always wants to be first and never takes too long to confess when they have a crush.
These signs are desire-driven and do not waste their time to appease their cravings. So if they like you, you’ll know very quickly, as they’ll ask you out as soon as they have a chance.
Fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius) are passionate and spontaneous. They experience life as a precious gift that we should enjoy as much as possible, taking every opportunity and not overthinking about the consequences.
Taurus: Taurus does not like making the first moves and would rather wait for others to come to them. Being a fixed sign, they have all the patience in the world! Making them miss some good opportunities at times.
However, they are also romantic and sensual individuals, so if they really like you, they will give you all sorts of unique gifts and take care of every detail to make you feel comfortable. You will also notice them approaching you physically and maintaining eye contact for more extended periods.
These signs hate routine and the practicalities of life, such as working or paying bills. Hence, they won’t get along exceptionally well with earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn), as they tend to be rigidly conservative and cherish stability and commitment.
Gemini: Gemini is a charming and very friendly zodiac sign. These individuals will make you doubt the most, as they get along with all kinds of people. Besides, their dualistic nature might be confusing and overwhelming. But this is their Achilles’ heel!
If you notice they start acting cold and distant out of the blue, this is a pretty good sign they are falling in love with you. They will also try to be extra fun when you are around, going to great lengths to make you laugh.
Fire signs have good compatibility with air signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius), as they are outgoing, thrive on change, and encourage them in their wildest projects. On the other hand, air signs admire the disposition and drive of fire signs and are inspired by their enthusiasm and motivation to keep going when they lose interest in their tasks.
Cancer: These signs are very warm and nurturing, although they are also timid and struggle to open up to others. You’ll know a Cancer is into you because they’ll give you a lot of affection and share their intimate stories with you.
They might not make the first move, but they will blush as soon as they see you and wait until they are sure you feel the same way.
Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces) are sensitive, empathetic, and approach reality from their own subjectivity. They are compatible with earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn) which provide them with security and help them contact reality when their fears invade their senses.
Air signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius) grow tired of the emotional clinging of water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces). Water signs get weary of the abrupt changes of air signs. Air needs space to roam freely, while water floods everything in its path, not making a very compatible match.
Earth and air signs can get along well, but it won’t be a particularly passionate relationship. Both elements are objective and rational and leave no room for emotions or emotional outbursts of love like other couples experience.
Finally, water and fire signs can form intense and problematic relationships. These individuals have great physical chemistry, so passion, enthusiasm, and drama won’t be lacking. However, they both struggle to set reasonable and objective goals. They may spend years breaking up and getting back together incessantly, without realizing this relationship has no stable future.
