The Astrological Compatibilities Of The ‘Love Is Blind’ Season 5 Couples Are Pretty Accurate, TBH

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… for me, at least. Season 5 of Love Is Blind just dropped, and I haven’t been able to think of anything else. And while I always love reality dating shows for the drama, I’m also a certified astrology fanatic. So, with that in mind, it makes total sense that I’m obsessing over the astrological compatibility of the Love Is Blind Season 5 couples. It’s my Roman Empire, y’all.

In a world saturated with reality dating shows, Love Is Blind has always emerged as an all-time favorite. The premise of the show is tea in and of itself: A group of singles, essentially, date each other through a wall — and then decide whether or not to get married, sight unseen. While it seems like a sweet idea in theory, these people have only known each other for, like, 10 days. And when they enter the real world, and see each other IRL, that’s where all of the drama starts. Someone grab me some popcorn. Spoiler alert: Spoilers for Season 5 of Love Is Blind follow.

With the first few episodes of Love Is Blind out, we finally have our engaged couples of the season (so far): Lydia and Milton, Stacy and Izzy, and JP and Taylor. But, are these pairings actually compatible? I asked the stars for answers, and here’s what they had to say.

Taylor & JP

Jared, “JP,” and Taylor were the first couple to leave the pods — so it’s safe to say they were feeling the connection early… even if it was through a wall. And, after looking at this couple’s astrology, it makes total sense.

JP is a Gemini while Taylor is a Capricorn. While these signs are from different elements (air and Earth respectively), they actually make for a pretty good pairing. Physically, Gemini and Capricorn are very compatible and tend to gravitate toward each other. Emotionally, however, both signs have a habit of being closed-off, which can be a definite problem when it comes to a long-term relationship. Hopefully, they can work it all out!

Stacy & Izzy

Stacy and Izzy were the second couple to get engaged on the show. To say that these two had their fair share of drama would be an understatement. Izzy has pursued several connections in the pods and broke some hearts before choosing to propose to Stacy. She, on the other hand, barely pursued other connections.

That being said, astrologically, this totally checks out. Stacy is a Libra, and Libra women are notoriously romantic and loyal in their relationships. Meanwhile, Izzy is a Virgo — and Virgo men tend to be a little less sold on commitment. While this couple can be a forever thing, it’s important for them to be strong in their commitment, and only have eyes for each other.

Lydia & Milton

Finally, the third and final couple of the season. Lydia and Milton already had some issues from the first episode, where the two were unsure of their relationship due to their six-year age gap. And despite the fact that this pairing bonded over their passion for rocks (yes, rocks), things got ~rocky~ fast. See what I did there?

Now, Milton is a Libra man, which means that he’s a very relaxed person but, once crossed, can be quite sensitive. Lydia is a Virgo, which explains her very up-front and powerful personality. So, when problems involving the two emerged (when Lydia revealed she had dated Uche in the past), it made sense that Milton felt upset. However, there is hope for these two if they communicate effectively, and try their best not to keep secrets from one another.

While the finale of Love Is Blind Season 5 isn’t coming for a few weeks, I know that I can’t wait to see where these couples go. Were the stars right this time around? I guess we’ll have to see!
