There’s a reason “Hey, bb, what’s your sign?” has been a way to flirt since your grandma’s days. Knowing someone’s sign gives you a clue into your astrological compatibility-aka how well you
romantically and sexually. If you ask an astrologer about compatibility, they’ll want to see your and your boo’s entire birth charts. Your Moon, Venus, Mars, and Mercury signs play a major role in compatibility-not just your Sun sign.
Still, while it’s not the whole astro story, your and your crush’s Sun signs give you some info to go on. In astrology, each sign has an element (fire, water, earth, or air), a modality (cardinal, fixed, or mutable), and a polarity (masculine or feminine). You can draw upon these qualities to determine if two signs work well together or if they have less than favorable chemistry. While it’s true that astrological compatibility goes beyond just your Sun sign, there are still ones you’re likely to get on with better than others! Which signs are perfect matches for yours? Read on to find out!
Geminis have a rare trait that few others do-they are capable of consistently refreshing your interest in them! They’re always able to bring a new topic of conversation, a great idea for a date night, or a creative way to play around in bed, and you have a hard time getting bored around them! And since they need their own sense of autonomy just like your sign, you never have to worry about your Gemini partner being clingy (but they’ll always be there for you when you need them).
Leos are like-minded fire signs that love fun and games even more than you do. They also love being flirtatious and keeping you interested with their teasing, playful qualities. Leo shares your need to feel validated or recognized for what you do and who you are, and as a result, both of you shine brighter and brighter around each other. You have a relationship based on boosting each other’s confidence by showering each other with affection, so sparks are always flying between you two!
Aquarius has a fascinating eccentricity that you can’t help but be attracted to. Their air sign energy is super compatible with your natural fieriness, and as a fixed sign, Aquarius is also reliable and dependable. There’s a mutual understanding that the both of you need your own space from time to time, and you can support each other’s independent growth. If you aren’t very gushy or lovey-dovey, Aquarius is perfect for you. They want to be friends before anything else, so it’s quite literally like dating your BFF!
Sagittarius is down for all your crazy ideas and adventures-they’re a fellow fire sign, after all. They share the same passionate energy, so when you get together, it’s nothing but nonstop heat-which you love! Sagittarius is one of the few signs who can actually keep up with you and enjoy the challenge.
Scorpio may be your sign’s opposite, but you share way more in common than you think. You find a lot of value in their ability to be just as grounded as you are, and Scorpios view relationships as an investment, just like you do. You both put tons of time and energy into your relationship, and Scorpio’s no-nonsense attitude shows you just how seriously they take this partnership. A Scorpio won’t give you anything but 100 percent, and the emotional connection you form with a Scorpio is one you won’t easily break!
Cancers love comfort and luxury just as much as you do. They naturally nurture others and will take care of your every need, and you love it. Cancers also take the initiative in forming a deeper connection with you. They’re super emotional, which might appear to be a turn-off for your cut-and-dried, sensible sign, but being with a Cancer can help you unlock your sensitive side and express your feelings better. They show you how much they care through romantic intimacy but also in tangible ways, such as making you food or buying you gifts, which is your favorite love language!
