Weekly Love Horoscope: A Quick Guide to Astrological Matchmaking
Imagine that there are several people in a room, socializing. We find the Leo standing straight and sipping his drink. Pisces, on the other hand, prefers to sit on the soft sofa, reading her horoscopes from the newspaper. Meanwhile, we find a Gemini chatting away with an Aquarius… Suddenly, Pisces laughs. She starts reading everyone's weekly love horoscope out loud. As you could imagine, a lively discussion soon ensues… So, as we leave this group to socialize, let's take a brief look at each sign's unique personality traits because it can reveal a lot about how they potentially can get along with other signs when in a relationship.
Love, Fire, Air, Earth and Water Signs
As a general rule, Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) and Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) tend to get along better among themselves; and the same goes for the combinations among Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) and Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces).
When it comes to love, here's a brief summary of how each of the twelve Zodiac signs matches up:
The Fire and Air signs
ARIES. Since people born as Aries favor their own sign, it's no wonder that when two Aries are matched together they often make a great couple! They do not fear of intimacy and they also tend to do very well together in long term, committed, relationships. Aries and Leo can also create another fiery match when it comes to intimacy. Together they usually find that they have excellent chemistry. Aries also often pairs well with Gemini, since they're both sociable and energetic in nature.
• Signs an Aries should try to avoid: Cancer, Scorpio and Virgo
LEO. As mentioned above, Leo and Aries make a great pair. Furthermore, a Leo can easily date another Leo provided their egos don't clash! With Gemini's, Leos make interesting couples, as they both love attention and some risk-taking.
• Signs a Leo should try to avoid: Taurus, Capricorn and Virgo.
SAGITTARIUS. Although a Sagittarius may not be a perfect match with an Aries or Leo, when it comes to relationships, a Sagittarius should get along with both signs just fine. A Sagittarius will often be drawn to a Leo because this relationship allows for independence which is important to the freedom loving Sagittarius. Sagittarius and Aries also match up well since they're both outgoing and active.
• Signs a Sagittarius should try to avoid: Taurus, Virgo and Scorpio.
GEMINI. Aside from Aries and Leo that make fine counterparts, a Gemini also matches up well with a Libra. Friendly and sociable, these two signs can build a loving and lasting relationship. Even an Aquarius can be a terrific choice for a Gemini because their relationship brings about intellectual fulfillment which they both enjoy.
• Signs a Gemini should try to avoid: Taurus, Cancer and Virgo.
LIBRA. Sociable Libra finds its best match in the outgoing Gemini (as mentioned above), but also can pair with Leo with whom it shares an outgoing social life.
With an Aquarius, Libra can often find a perfect supportive partner, as they tend to understand each other very well.
• Signs a Libra should try to avoid: Virgo, Capricorn and Cancer.
AQUARIUS. Friendly and independent Aquarius will, as mentioned earlier, find a wonderful match in either of the other Air signs – Gemini and Libra. Aquarius is a sign that is best left surrounded by its own element!
• Signs an Aquarius should try to avoid: Leo and Taurus.
The Earth and Water Signs
TAURUS. Affectionate by nature, the typical Taurus usually desires to be in a stabile relationship. These are traits it shares with Cancer and they can often make a great couple together because of this. Taurus tends to have an affinity for the material side of life which also matches up well with Capricorn's desires. Together, they might enjoy a lavish lifestyle. Another great match might be a Pisces who can often be attracted to a Taurus for its strength. Together these two often find a strong, sensual, connection.
• Signs a Taurus should try to avoid: Aquarius, Gemini and Leo.
VIRGO. As an Earth sign, Virgo can easily be matched with its counterparts. Virgo and Taurus often create sparks together and usually find success when in committed relationships. Capricorns are practical in nature and also pair up well with Virgos. Likewise, Virgo's tendency to be introverted makes them the right kind of partner with Cancer as they share emotional needs.

CAPRICORN. Aside from finding a good partner in Taurus and Virgo, a Capricorn also pairs up well with other Capricorns! Their similarity can lead to a blissful relationship.

CANCER. As mentioned above, the emotional Cancer can make a great couple with Taurus or Virgo. On top of that, watery and intense Scorpio can create a surprisingly deep bond with Cancer, who will love the protectiveness found in Scorpio.
• Signs a Cancer should try to avoid: Gemini, Libra and another Cancer.
SCORPIO. Protective by nature, a Scorpio can often provide the sense of security most Cancers and Pisces desire. When in a relationship with either of these two signs, Scorpio turns into a pillar, giving them just the stability they need to blossom. Two Scorpios as a couple will experience strong sparks in the beginning, but it could take a lot of effort to make their relationship work in the long run.
• Signs a Scorpio should try to avoid: Virgo and Sagittarius.
PISCES. As mentioned earlier, Pisces is best matched with Scorpio, but is also a good partner to the artistic Libra and the sensual Taurus. With a Taurus, Pisces feels especially protected.
