As soon I tell people about their signs, they almost ask what sign would be the best match for them. What I always say is that in my experience, any sign can work it out with any sign but some combinations are more challenging than others.
You really have to compare the whole horoscopes of the involved parties. They may have compatibilities between other factors that a challenging Sun Sign combination is invigorating rather than burdensome. Furthermore, some people seem to like the struggle.
For what it’s worth however, here are some principles from Sun Sign compatibility theory:
Signs get along better with signs from their own element so:
- Aries, Leo and Sagittarius because they share the fire element
- Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn because they share the earth element
- Gemini, Libra and Aquarius because they share the air element
- Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces because they share the water element
Another series of harmonious connections stem from the The complementary elements are earth with water and fire with air. These combinations can work really well but watch out for the tension between the opposing signs even though they are of complementary elements: Aries-Libra, Taurus-Scorpio, Gemini-Sagittarius, Cancer-Capricorn, Leo-Aquarius and Virgo-Pisces. Some astrologers feel these combinations have a “soul mate” feel to them but in my experience, they can be too intense to support a long term pairing, unless there are mitigating factors. To each their own!
The better use of astrology when it comes to a relationship is evaluating the horoscope for the qualities you need for successful partnership.
