Which Zodiac Signs Are Incompatible?Here's Who You Should Probably Never Date, Based On Astrology
If we pay attention to our personality traits based on our zodiac sign, we're likely to figure out quite a bit about ourselves and the people around us. From which careers are an ideal match, to which zodiac signs are pretty much our mortal enemies, to what signs are the most compatible, and the signs we should avoid like the black plague, astrology can reveal a lot.
"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."
So, in effort to help you avoid major romance disasters and not waste your time, and get straight to the right zodiac match for you, it's time to learn which signs you're romantically incompatible with.
Of course, dating one of the signs that's astrologically incompatible with yours doesn't mean you're doomed. First off, there's more to astrology than just your sun sign, so it may be worth getting your chart read, too. And, just because there's difficulty between two signs, doesn't mean you can't work it out or compromise. That being said, it's always interesting to know where you might butt heads with someone, so according to astrology, here's who you should never date.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You should probably never date: Aries, Taurus, and Capricorn.
Why? Well, for starters, two Aries makes for a whole boatload of competition that not even the healthiest of relationships can handle. Think Monica from Friends here — can you imagine Monica dating another Monica? Hell. No.
As for Taurus, it's a no go because two stubborn people aren't very likely to work things out, especially when it comes to arguments, because nothing will ever get resolved.
Although Capricorn doesn't share the same traits with Aries like that of another Aries and Taurus, being that they're so on the other end of the spectrum in how they express themselves and respond to criticism, the chances of Aries of Capricorn overlapping and creating bliss in the process is small.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You should probably never date: Aries, Gemini, and Aquarius.
Why? Well, if Aries shouldn't date Taurus, then Taurus shouldn't date Aries for the aforementioned reasons.
But what's interesting here is that Gemini, despite being one of the easiest zodiac signs to get along with, isn't a great (or even good) fit for Taurus, because trust is always going to be the issue at the core of their relationship. If you can't trust your partner, then all bets are off.
The reason Taurus and Aquarius should never date is because it's simply wasted time. While at first they can make a go of it, the fact that they communicate differently means they may not work in the long run.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You should probably never date: Pisces, Gemini, and Cancer.
Why? Similar to why Aries shouldn't date Aries, Gemini shouldn't date Gemini — there are just too many personalities involved.
As for why Gemini and Cancer should avoid dating each other, that comes down to sex more than anything else. These two signs may have trouble getting on the same page when it comes to sexual and emotional aspects.
Pisces, however, is hit or miss. If you find yourself on a date with a Pisces and you're not feeling it, it's probably best to end it right then and there before it becomes a disaster.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You should probably never date: Aries, Gemini, Cancer, and Scorpio.
Why? Aries is far too impatient to deal with Cancer, who really likes to take their time to smell the flowers. So unless you're a Cancer who feels like you want to speed up your life for someone else, then stay away from Aries.
Again, with Gemini, there may be too many complications in regards to sexual and emotional compatibility to get a relationship off the ground, so nix that idea right now.
As for a Cancer dating a Cancer, all that emotional wealth can backfire and cause more anxiety than an a happy loving relationship. Granted, this anxiety can be worked on, but if there's no guarantee that there's a future, you may be wasting your time.
Scorpio needs to be with a sign that can handle them at their best and at their worst and be willing to keep things in balance — despite the fact that neither Cancer nor Scorpio are known for keeping balance. So if the balance is off with these two, it may not be found again.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You should probably never date: Virgo, Gemini, and Capricorn.
Why? Leo and Virgo lack the emotional bond and intimacy that makes a relationship work, so when you date a Virgo, you're dating a great friend, but that could be where it ends.
Gemini and Leo may make for great playmates, but when they get together, there's a lot of immaturity to be had. So, if you're over the age of 15, Leo, stay away from Gemini.
When Capricorn and Leo come together, an immediate challenge to get along follows. While some may be up for the challenge, many just aren't — and if life is too short, who can blame you? Drama can be exciting, but not all the time.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You should probably never date: Aries, Sagittarius, and Virgo.
Why? When a Virgo dates an Aries things get too serious. Not serious in regards to relationships, but serious in that trying to find a chuckle over the same thing is trying. So thanks, but no thanks on that one.
If you're looking for a fairytale relationship, then steer clear of Sagittarius. A relationship with Sagittarius will lead to endless doubts, as trust will always be an issue, and something about this union may make you feel trapped.
Like many zodiac signs, Virgo is another one that shouldn't date a fellow Virgo. While their positive traits can complement each other, the negative traits of Virgo cause more problems than most relationships can survive.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You should probably never date: Libra, Taurus, and Cancer.
Why? For a Libra to date a Libra, there needs to be a huge amount put on mutual respect which, honestly, is difficult for Libra because they can be selfish. That being said, Libra, never date a Libra.
Because Taurus finds itself on the opposite side of Venus compared to Libra, these two signs struggle to get along in more ways than one. Fiery relationships have their place, but when it's constant, it's a waste of energy.
When it comes to Cancer, Libra, don't even. The problem is that you're both too emotional, but in completely different ways. You also require a lot of space and alone time, but define this space and alone time in different ways, too.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You should probably never date: Aries, Aquarius, and Scorpio.
Why? There's one word to describe the union of Scorpio and Aries: disaster. Not just a disaster, but a massive collision where neither one gets out unscathed. No one wants that.
A major component when it comes to relationships is to accept who and what that person is — this is something that Scorpio and Aquarius just can't do. In fact, they expect change where change isn't very likely to occur and, in the end, you've both wasted your time kicking a dead horse who was never going to get back up and come alive again.
Scorpio and Scorpio? More like hellfire and hellfire. Even if that Scorpio happens to be Ryan Gosling and he's just broken up with Eva Mendes, and is declaring his love for you outside your window a la Rome and Juliet style. Don't.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You should probably never date: Virgo, Cancer, Scorpio, and Sagittarius.
Why? Although you get along with a lot of the zodiac signs, Virgo and you just can't pull it off when it comes to dating. A lot of this has to do with the fact that you're a Fire sign and Virgo is an Earth sign, so where you want to take risks and try new things, Virgo is likely to be more reserved. It just won't work in the long run.
While both Sagittarius and Cancer are capable of love and lots of it, these two signs can't seem to love at the same time, in the same way, or even find each other attractive sometimes. Because of this, you might not even find yourself even in the situation to turn down a date with a Cancer, because the attraction won't even exist in the first place.
Scorpio and Sagittarius have completely different and often unrealistic expectations of each other. So, to avoid months or years of arguing, Sagittarius, probably shouldn't date a Scorpio.
If you're thinking maybe you're best match would be a fellow Sagittarius, you can put that thought to bed right now. Together, there's too much unreliability, instability, and immaturity. Not exactly the makings of an adult relationship.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You should probably never date: Aries, Libra, and Capricorn.
Why? Capricorn, Aries could annoy the hell out of you. If you're up for a challenge, then great! But, realistically, most people can't tolerate annoyances forever.
While dating a Libra won't be total hell, it probably won't be a walk in the park either. For a relationship to work with Libra, you both have to be at the perfect points in your perspective lives when you meet — something you'll recognize right away. If you're not, forget it, because timing is everything for you two.
There's a pattern here: zodiac signs, for the most part, shouldn't date their same zodiac sign, because it's like dating yourself. And we see that once again with Capricorn. Two Capricorns mean double the coldness and stubbornness, which can be incredibly boring. Capricorns need to be with more emotional signs to balance them out.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You should probably never date: Cancer, Leo, and Virgo.
Why? To get to the point, Aquarius, Cancer is far too different from you to have a long-term relationship. While you can both do your best to try to accept each others differences and might even be able to do so for the short-term, the long haul could be more of an issue.
According to the stars, Aquarius and Leo make for the most explosive couple in the zodiac. Although the explosion comes from a ridiculous amount of passion, unless you're Penelope Cruz and your partner is Javier Bardem, and you're living in the movie Vicky, Christina, Barcelona, you may want to avoid each other.
As for Virgo? "Virgo and Aquarius go as well as much as a control freak and a chaos addict, a healthy meal and a junk one," according to Astrology-zodiac-signs.com. Any questions?
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You should probably never date: Aries, Leo, and Pisces.
Why? In dating Aries, Pisces, you'll constantly be looking for a balance when you're not arguing — and you two argue a lot. Your heart is too creative and sweet, for the ram, so making sense as a couple may just not be in the stars.
As a sign that doesn't easily forgive, you're likely to waste too much time on getting even with a Leo for hurting you.
Once again, we find two of one thing makes for a mess and, in this case, a heartbreaking mess. Although there's the possibility that two Pisces could create something really great, it's best if that creation comes from a Pisces-Pisces friendship, because as far as relationships go, it could be a diaster.
Finding the ideal match isn't easy. Like, at all. But by knowing how your personality works with other personalities, you might find that there's something to be said about studying the zodiac and its signs, in regards to love, sex, and relationships.
