If you’ve ever wondered why you keep attracting the same zodiac signs over and over again, the answer may be in your Sun sign. When it comes to falling in love, some zodiac signs are naturally
attracted to each other without even really knowing why. For instance, Capricorn and Cancer zodiac signs are most likely to be attracted to each other even though they’re polar opposites. You can’t always help who you’re attracted to, nor can you help who’s attracted to you. When it comes to astrology, there are three zodiac signs most attracted to your sign.
Of course, there are many different factors at play here. For starters, in
Vedic astrology, "signs of the same element are most attracted to each other because they share common themes in life," vedic astrologer, Griffin Damron, tells Bustle. "The Fire signs follow their creative inspirations, the Air signs follow their social impulses, the Water signs follow their intuitive feelings, and Earth signs follow their material desires. Signs of the same element bond comfortably over these shared life themes."
It’s similar to Western astrology where
zodiac signs of the same element work well together because they share certain qualities and ways of expressing their energy. For instance, Fire signs are passionate, strong-willed, and ambitious. Earth signs tend to be slow-moving, practical, and grounded. Air signs are social, communication-oriented, and intellectual. And water signs are sensitive, emotional, and intuitive.
But sometimes the opposite is true. "Some signs are attracted to what might be an unlikely astrological paring because they see what they lack in themselves and experience those qualities by pairing with another sign,"
Lisa Barretta, an astrologer and author tells Bustle. A homebody like Cancer might, for example, be super attracted to someone with an adventurous spirit like Sagittarius, because they pull them out of their comfort zone.
Below, you’ll find the three
signs most likely to be attracted to you, based on your zodiac sign. 1 Aries Zodiac Signs (March 21 — April 19): Cancer, Libra, Sagittarius AleksandarGeorgiev/E+/Getty Images
These three zodiac
signs are naturally drawn to Aries, for a variety of reasons. According to Barretta, Cancer zodiac signs want to feel protected, so "they feel a pull towards this take-control sign." Cancer also likes the fact Aries pulls them out of their "shell," and encourages them to try new things. In astrology, Aries and Cancer form a square aspect to each other, which means they’re 90 degrees apart on the zodiac wheel. This aspect can be challenging, but it can create sexual tension unlike anything they’ve ever experienced.
Libra has a way of balancing Aries out, as well. Together, they keep each other in check — usually before Aries does something too impulsive. As Barretta says, Libra also lives for the fact that Aries has the ability to see both sides of any situation. Aries is also ruled by Mars, while Libra is ruled by Venus.
Leslie Hale, an astrologer with Keen.com, previously told Bustle, “With this combination of Venus and Mars, the two planets of love and attraction are at constant play.” Their relationship will be filled with lots of love, affection, and intimacy.
Sagittarius, they're drawn to Aries on an elemental level. "Sagittarius is of the fire element like Aries," Barretta says. "[They] like their independence and can more easily cope with [that side] of an Aries." Together, these two have fun — and get into a lot of trouble together. Plus, they understand each other in a way that no one else does. 2 Taurus Zodiac Signs (April 20 — May 20): Leo, Libra, Capricorn
Leo zodiac signs love to spoil their loved ones, which comfort-loving Taurus is all about, Barretta says. These signs can easily find a lot of happiness together and enjoy the give-and-take of a secure, loyal relationship. As astrologer
Clarisse Monahan previously told Bustle, Taurus and Leo can connect really well emotionally. They both value love and want a long-term relationship. Since they’re fixed signs, there’s a good chance they’ll commit to each other for life. Libra and Taurus are both ruled by Venus, the planet of love, which means both signs appreciate the finer things in life — and will have a good time wining and dining each other, and going on dates. Sexually, they make a great match as well. Taurus enjoy pleasing their partners while Libra loves being adored. This is one of the best matches for both zodiac signs.
As a fellow earth sign, Capricorns also often find themselves
attracted to Taurus, and they'll support them at all costs, Barretta says. This sign likes to create a stable life for themselves, which Taurus truly appreciates. As two earth signs, they’ll take their time getting to know each other. They won’t ever feel rushed by the other, which they’ll both appreciate. This is a great pairing for both zodiac signs long-term. 3 Gemini Zodiac Signs (May 21 — June 20): Leo, Virgo, Sagittarius
As a zodiac sign that loves to socialize, Leos find themselves
drawn to the equally gregarious Gemini. "This pair likes drama and both signs can keep it going," Barretta says. It can make for a whirlwind relationship that doesn't always last, but the attraction is still intense. Leos love being the center of attention while Geminis are naturally curious signs who love getting to know new people. They’ll get along well, especially early on.
Then there's Virgo who, like Gemini, is ruled by the planet Mercury. That means they're all about communication, so they appreciate a Gemini, who is able to hold up their end of a conversation. These two will chat late into the night, and may even find themselves quickly falling in love. Long-term, they could run into problems when Virgo’s love of routine gets a little too boring for Gemini. They may decide they’re better off as friends.
Sagittarius is also drawn in as both signs are always down for an adventure and, as Barretta says, "seem to bond over their search for new places to go and things to do." Get them talking about road trips, and the rest will be history. Both Sagittarius and Gemini are fun-loving signs who like to go with the flow. Neither will feel pressured to make a relationship official, which they’ll both appreciate.
4 Cancer Zodiac Signs (June 21 — July 22): Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces
Since Scorpio zodiac signs crave trust and security in a relationship, they may find themselves
falling for a Cancer zodiac sign since this sign has the ability to tap into other people's emotions, Damron says. Scorpio will feel supported and "seen" the moment they meet, and it will spark a major attraction. Both Cancer and Scorpio will appreciate being with someone who understands their mood swings and knows how to deal with them the right way.
As for Capricorn, they are Cancer's opposite, and thus are attracted "because they see in Cancer what they lack themselves," Damron says. This sign helps them to "lighten up and get in touch with their heart and soul, which can be lost in their business-oriented brain."Long-term, these two could help balance each other out. Capricorn will give Cancer the security they crave, while Cancer will give Capricorn the affection they secretly want but don’t always ask for.
Finally, Pisces is another sign that will be immediately drawn towards Cancer. As two water signs, Pisces and Cancer will quickly "bond over their shared emotional, intuitive, and feeling-centered approach to life," Damron says. And what could be more attractive than that? The biggest issue in a Cancer-Pisces relationship is a lack of a grounding force. They’re both very emotional signs, so small fights can turn into a huge thing.
5 Leo Zodiac Signs (July 23 — August 22): Libra, Scorpio, Pisces Avelino Calvar Martinez / EyeEm/EyeEm/Getty Images
Libra is a zodiac sign that craves a doting partner, Barretta says, which is where Leo truly shines. These two naturally want to do sweet things for each other, like plan surprise dinners and nights out. Both Libra and Leo are true romantics at heart, so their relationship will feel like a fairytale for both signs.
Scorpios are also deeply
attracted to Leos, since they enjoy being with someone who wants to commit to a real relationship. Leos are quick to give them all of the time and attention they could possibly ask for — and both signs enjoy every minute of it. Long-term, this may not be the best match for them. Leo loves being in the spotlight, while Scorpios are notoriously jealous. This may eventually be off-putting for Leo who just can’t let go of their adoring fans.
And then there's Pisces, who is drawn to Leo's artistic side. "Pisces and Leo are both creative signs so they relate in that manner," Barretta says. This pensive sign is also happy to kick back and watch Leo shine in the spotlight — something they crave — which means they make a great pair. They both love being in love and will shower each other affection. It’s another sweet, romantic match for the lion.
6 Virgo Zodiac Signs (August 23 — September 22): Taurus, Capricorn, Pisces
As a fellow earth sign, Taurus is
naturally attracted to Virgo, Damron says. These two are all about the material world, which means they bond quickly in cozy environments. They both enjoy their routine and will love spending weekends just being together at home. Long-term, the relationship may become stale if they aren’t willing to break out of their usual routine. Since they’re both earth signs, they may decide to just stick it out.
Capricorn is also an earth sign, which feeds into their attraction. But it goes further in that they love Virgo's ability to create a sense of safety and structure, Damron says. Capricorn will find themselves drawn to Virgos, as a result. Virgos will love how ambitious Capricorn is and will do what they can to support them. This is a couple that may decide to start a business together.
Then there’s Pisces, who may fall for a Virgo because they are on the opposite sides of the astrological chart, "creating a magnetic attraction between the signs," Damron says. Virgo's strong sense of reality will bring the ethereal Pisces down to earth, in a way they really appreciate. Virgo will be intrigued by Pisces’ childlike way of looking at the world, while Pisces will appreciate how safe Virgo makes them feel.
7 Libra Zodiac Signs (September 23 — October 22): Taurus, Cancer, Aquarius
Cancer zodiac signs are nurturing, and Libras love to be taken care of. "Both signs are very changeable [too,] so in some weird way they understand each other's mood swings," Barretta says. It can make for an intense attraction right from the get-go. Cancer will appreciate how affectionate and sweet Libra can be, and Libra will love having a nice warm place to call home.
As two zodiac signs ruled by Venus, the planet of love, Taurus
can't help but fall for Libra. These two find themselves wanting to spend romantic days indoors together, simply enjoying each other's company. Taurus may have to deal with Libra’s flirtatious nature, which can make Taurus hesitate about making a commitment.
Then there's Aquarius, who’s attracted to Libra for their secret appreciation of all things avant-garde. "Libra likes to be on the tip of anything new in fashion, art, and music and Aquarius are always on to the latest and greatest," Barretta says. They'll enjoy telling Libra about their latest obsessions, and watching them light up. Since they’re both air signs, they’ll have a lot of interesting conversations about the world or interesting people they’ve met.
8 Scorpio Zodiac Signs (October 23 — November 21): Taurus, Cancer, Pisces
As a zodiac sign that prefers not to rock the boat, Cancer admires "Scorpio's ability to confront and overcome the darker energies of life that they [...] prefer to avoid," Damron says. The moment they see them deftly handle a tough situation, it'll spark an intense crush. Scorpio will love how kind and caring Cancer is, and falling in love will come easily for them.
Taurus falls on the opposite end of the astrological chart and will
find Scorpio attractive as a result. "Taurus lives a life [...] of stability," Damron says. "However, Scorpios throw caution to the wind and ride a wave of emotional peaks and valleys, gains and losses. [Taurus] will be attracted to this seemingly fearless approach." Sexually, this is an amazing match for both signs as Taurus is very sensual while Scorpio is very passionate. Even if it doesn’t last, these two will remember each other for a long time.
Pisces appreciates this side of Scorpio, too, as well as their mystery, Barretta says. As two "mystical" signs, they'll truly understand each other and will stir up some seriously steamy vibes while having deep conversations. As long as Scorpio watches what they say during heated moments, this is a relationship that could last.

Gemini zodiac signs are down to pack their bags and leave on a trip at a moment's notice, Barretta says, which is why they'll instantly fall for Sagittarius — who’s known to do the same. They’re both carefree, happy-go-lucky zodiac signs who’ll enjoy each other’s company. Plus, they’re both independent and neither will feel like the other is holding them back.
Aquarius is the same way. They aren't ones to be tied down, which is why there's often an attraction and mutual understanding between these two signs. They'll hit it off and then immediately start planning a big trip. Both signs will give each other the space they need to do their own thing, which they’ll both appreciate.
As for Pisces, they're
drawn to Sagittarius for their ability to chat about the philosophical side of life. Pisces also loves freedom and, as Barretta says, often finds it refreshing to be with someone who despises routine just as much as they do. When Sagittarius and Pisces get together, it can get a little chaotic but it’ll be a lot of fun. 10 Capricorn Zodiac Signs (December 22 — January 19): Taurus, Cancer, Virgo
As another earth sign, Taurus will be into Capricorn right from the start. And if they end up together, the two can make a really great couple. "The material end of the relationship is left to Capricorn while the sensual elements of the relationship are kept alive by Taurus," Barretta says. Taurus is a loyal zodiac sign, which Capricorn will appreciate. This is one attraction that can turn into something more.
Cancer is also all about this stability, which vibes well with Capricorn's strong desire to meet big goals and create a solid foundation for their life. These two will quickly realize they want the same things and will start falling for each other. This is one couple that has what it takes to make a relationship last.
And then there's Virgo, who's
attracted to Capricorn and their ability to remain organized at all costs. "They both like the 'predictable,'" Barretta says, and will even find this trait hot. They’re also ambitious and will push each other to achieve their goals. They have the makings of a power couple. 11 Aquarius Zodiac Signs (January 20 — February 18): Gemini, Leo, Scorpio
Since they're both air signs, Gemini and Aquarius share a bond over their interest in social affairs, Damron says. Aquarius is always working to create a better society, which Gemini truly admires. And they will try to support them as much as they can. They’re also intelligent and will have a lot of interesting conversations.
As a zodiac sign that thrives off attention, Leo may find themselves falling for Aquarius — but not for the reason you might think. "Through Aquarius, [Leo learns] that everyone's contribution is equally important to creating a healthy community," Damron says. "For this reason, they seek out Aquarians to balance themselves."
Scorpio is also drawn to them for their quirky side. "Scorpio wants to figure Aquarius out," Barretta says. They find the mystery quite attractive, "while Aquarius enjoys being the missing piece of the puzzle." They’re both fixed zodiac signs, which means they’re both stubborn. Long-term, they may not make the best match — but they’ll be intrigued by each other at the start.
12 Pisces Zodiac Signs (February 19 — March 20): Leo, Virgo, Pisces
Leo zodiac signs are all about the arts, Barretta says, and will feel inspired by a creative Pisces. Leo might even make them their muse for an upcoming project — and they won't be able to stop thinking about them. This is a playful pairing that will have a lot of fun dreaming about the future together.
Virgo will also find themselves falling for Pisces since these two signs are opposites, which means they balance each other out. "They are
attracted to Pisces because they help them learn to let go and go with the flow," Damron says, which is something a highly-organized Virgo needs.
Scorpio also tends to be head-over-heels for Pisces. "Scorpio and Pisces are mystery and magic to the 10th degree," Barretta says. "These two signs together somehow read each other's minds and know exactly what to do to please the other." They’re also not afraid to go deep from day one, so they won’t scare each other off with their intensity.
Whether they're intrigued by mutual goals, make each other feel extra comfy and secure, or simply enjoy hanging out and having a great conversation, when these zodiac signs come together the chemistry is real.
