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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
