When it comes to a successful relationship, compatibility is a must. By it's very definition, being compatible is when "two or more things are able to exist or work together in combination without problems or conflict." This isn't to suggest that disagreements suddenly mean in you're incompatible but, on the contrary, that you're not afraid to voice your differences and then, of course, work it out.
There are many ways in which people can be compatible. But for those who anxiously await to read their horoscope at the beginning of every month, the type of compatibility that's most important to them is between astrological signs. And for those who follow astrology, zodiac signs mean everything.
"Across literally thousands of readings it is my strongly held belief that it is essential to date someone whose sign is compatible with your sign," Psychic Medium Imelda Green tells Bustle. "Ninety percent of relationship crushing disasters can be avoided simply by finding someone who is a compatible match with your particular zodiac sign."
And the best part about sticking to signs in regards to finding your most compatible mate, is that there isn't just one sign for you. For example, if you're a Capricorn, the most compatible signs for you include Pisces, Scorpio, Virgo, and Taurus. Look at that! Four from which to choose!
Here are your most compatible astrological signs.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
...You're most compatible with Aquarius, Sagittarius, Leo, and Gemini.
Woah Nelly! Look at all those options, Aries! The reason for this has to do with the fact that Aries have a magnetic personality.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
...You're most compatible with Virgo and Pisces.
Taurus folk tend to get a bad rap for being stubborn, but the reality is that they're just full of determination and there's definitely something to be said for that. Virgos and Pisces are equally strong in their own way, making for one hell of a delightful romance.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
...You're most compatible with Aquarius and Libra.
Although the two personality aspect of Gemini can seem daunting, they're actually quite affectionate and sweet. Because of this, they appeal to Aquarius and Libra. Gemini also does pretty well with other Gemini, because they're able to handle each other in ways that other signs may not be able to.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
...You're most compatible with Scorpio and Pisces.
Because Cancers can be a bit jealous and often in need of attention, Scorpios can fit the bill for this. Pisces, on the other hand, is a match that can have a smooth-sailing relationship, void of too much drama.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
...You're most compatible with Sagittarius, Libra, Gemini, and Aries.
Because Leos tend to be demanding when it comes to love, these signs share their determination, as well as their passion and deep appreciation for life. A lust for life, to be more specific.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
...You're most compatible with Taurus and Capricorn.
Since Virgo is an Earth sign, it's important that they stick to other Earth signs like Taurus and Capricorn. Not only do they complement each other, but they share a practical approach to all that life has to offer. And honestly, practical and practical goes together like peanut butter and jelly.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
...You're most compatible with Leo and Sagittarius.
These signs enjoy the peaceful harmony that Libras can offer a romantic relationship. However, Libra can also be compatible with a fellow Libra, making for a "beautiful and peaceful relationship." (Note to self: Find a fellow Libra.)
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
...You're most compatible with Scorpio and Pisces.
"They make for an unusual couple, but they have a high level of success when it comes to love and relationships," says Green. It's the mysterious quality that these signs share that make for a powerful union of love and happiness.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
...You're most compatible with Leo, Aries, Aquarius, and Libra.
Since Sagittarius can get bored easily and a lot faster than most, they are able to deliver and keep things nice and spicy, and Sagittarius on their toes.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
...You're most compatible with Pisces, Scorpio, Virgo, and Taurus.
It's these signs that are up for the challenge of getting straight to the point, as Capricorns prefer. You won't find any short-lived relationships here, but long, happy ones that will be able to withstand whatever is thrown their way.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
...You're most compatible with Gemini and Libra.
As much as all these signs enjoy people, they put their freedom and independence above all else. Because of this, the need to have some alone time will never be an issue for a Gemini or Libra who dates an Aquarius, because they understand that need in ways that other signs may not.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
...You're most compatible with Scorpio and Cancer.
For Pisces, the need to be with fellow water signs, Scorpios and Cancers, is the best way to insure a relationship that's harmonious and long-lasting. There's an understanding of moods there, because of the shared water sign.
Even if you're skeptical about astrological signs and their compatibility, if you're a Gemini who's been dating everyone but Libras, and it hasn't worked out, then it might be time to take your zodiac sign to heart. There's nothing wrong with trying something new, especially if what you've been doing hasn't been working out so well.
