Although I’m a skeptic myself, I have lots of friends who are completely transfixed by the study of astrology. I always know when Mercury is in retrograde, because my Facebook feed is bombarded with, “OMG! Everything is falling apart, because of Mercury retrograde!” Because I’m neurotic enough as it is, I tend to steer clear of most astrological life advice. But, admittedly, I’ve always been sort of curious about the dating compatibility aspect of astrology.
As a Libra who has dated more Geminis than any other signs, I can't help but think this whole astrological thing that so many other people so gung-ho about might have something to it. Although, despite having dated so many Geminis, the man I married is an Aquarius, so... maybe not. (Tragically, according to the stars, he and I will not have “perfect sex.” Well, that is just awful news, but I will do my best to get over it.)
If you are someone who believes that the stars, the planets, and life here on Earth are all completely intertwined, then this list is for you. (Or, if you're just curious whether your current boo and you are astrologically-aligned, then this list is also for you.)
Here's who you should be dating, according to the stars.
If You’re An Aries (March 21 - April 19)...
...Date a Libra!
According to astrologist Susan Miller, this is an ideal match, because of the emotional connection between the two signs. But beware: things can get tricky is in the bedroom, because Libra likes to take it slow, while Aries goes in for the kill. If Aries can remember that foreplay is really important to Libra, then they're unstoppable.
Your Celebrity Matches: Kim Kardashian, Zac Efron, Bruno Mars
If You’re A Taurus (April 20 - May 20)...
...Date a Taurus!
It may seem strange that two bulls, who are known to be stubborn as hell, would make for a great partnership — but maybe it's because no one else really gets them. When two Taurus come together, it makes for a both a stable and sensuous union. Apparently, it's the "love connection of a lifetime," because they're both in sync on what matters most: fidelity and food.
Your Celebrity Matches: Adele, Channing Tatum, Robert Pattinson
If You’re A Gemini (May 21 - June 20)...
...Date a Libra!
Here there is not only mutual understanding, but also a shared appreciation of all things beautiful; like art, music, and culture. Neither sign is naturally jealous, so there's no concern for unnecessary drama. The openness between a Gemini and Libra is something that will apparently "stand the test of time."
Your Celebrity Matches: Zac Efron, Hugh Jackman, Gwen Stefani
If You’re A Cancer (June 21 - July 22)...
...Date a Scorpio!
Although the thought of dating a Scorpio can be scary (because they tend to not get along with many signs) in Cancer, Scorpio finds a home. They're a good balance for each other's insecurities and neuroses, and Scorpio is great at breaking down Cancer's shyness. They help each other with their hangups.
Your Celebrity Matches: Leo DiCaprio, Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley, Ryan Gosling
If You’re A Leo (July 23 - August 22)...
...Date a Sagittarius!
With these two, the fun never stops. Each one is always up for a good time, trying something new, and encouraging each other along the way. But for Leo and Sagittarius, their favorite way to spend time together is in the bedroom. They also tend to view the world the same way, often agreeing on political and social issues, which is obviously really important.
Your Celebrity Matches: Taylor Swift, Brad Pitt, Nicki Minaj
If You’re A Virgo (August 23 - September 22)...
...Date a Taurus!
The introverted and reclusive nature found in both Virgo and Taurus means they're both more than happy to stay home together. They're comfortable doing their own thing, one-on-one, and are basically Netflix's ideal customers, because there's probably a lot of TV watching going on there.
Your Celebrity Matches: David Beckham, George Clooney, Megan Fox
If You’re A Libra (September 23 - October 22)...
...Date a Gemini!
Once again, Libra and Gemini are a good fit. They intellectually challenge each other, agree on social issues, and are not jealous people.
But the runner-up match here for Libra is actually another Libra, because we tend to be that self-absorbed. We also understand each other's bossiness and need for balance.
Your Celebrity Matches: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Angelina Jolie
If You’re A Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)...
...Date a Pisces!
Scorpio and Pisces perfectly sum up the whole "opposites attract" concept. They may be different in many ways, but they're also similar in their dependency on each other. Scorpio is naturally possessive, and Pisces needs that for their self-worth.
Your Celebrity Matches: Rihanna, Brooklyn Beckham
If You’re A Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)...
...Date an Aquarius!
The combination of creativity and need for adventure is paired very well when Sagittarius and Aquarius get together. Since they're both talkers, they can have endless discussions, and their sex life is both active and "innovative." Sounds like fun, you two!
Your Celebrity Matches: Harry Styles, Justin Timberlake, Chloe Grace Moretz
If You’re Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)...
...Date a Virgo!
As Astrology Companion puts it, you guys are like two peas in a pod. You both love order, and strive for success. You also keep your friend count to a minimum, because who needs to be friends with everyone? While your sex life will sometimes take some work, this partnership is based on practicality and has a high chance for longevity.
Your Celebrity Matches: Beyonce, Rupert Grint, Nick Jonas
If You’re An Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)...
...Date a Sagittarius!
Oh! Such a cheery union! When Aquarius and Sagittarius come together, it's a roller coaster of energy of two people who are up for anything. But while they're having all that fun, they like to do it with lots of other people and in a way that will make the world a better place — all while keeping their eye on the future. They both aren't afraid to have big dreams, and support each other in achieving them.
Your Celebrity Options: Miley Cyrus, Ian Somerhalder, Brad Pitt
If You’re A Pisces (February 19 - March 20)...
...Date a Capricorn!
Again, this is a situation where the opposite aspects of two signs really play in a couple's favor. Pisces is imaginative, while Capricorn is laid back enough to do just about anything Pisces throws at them. Because Pisces can be sort of flighty, Capricorn brings them back down to earth, but would never even think of changing them.
Your Celebrity Options: LeBron James, Liam Hemsworth, Kate Middleton
