How Astrology Can Help You Find Your Perfect Match

With Valentine’s Day 2019 just around the corner, many are scrambling to cuff up with a newfound romance. But, hitting a wall in the romance department might not be the fault of a bad Tinder date. It might be fated, written in the stars even, and consulting astrology can show us how.

Astrology can provide us Earthlings with an in-depth report on our personalities and, therefore, our behaviors and tendencies. Many use astrology as a path to self-discovery and to shine light on what seems to be most puzzling here on Earth. Even skeptics of astrology’s teachings may be curious to find out what parts of their unique birth charts determine how they deal with money, travel, communication, and of course, love.  

Astrology and Love

Though consulting your birth chart will give a full scope of who is most compatible with you, Sun signs, (the sign based on your birthday, the one everyone knows) can be telling of generally who is compatible with whom when in love. Here are some of the perfect matches written in the stars:


Aries (March 21- April 19)

Best partners in love: Libra, Sagittarius

Patient Libra is a great choice to balance out fiery Aries, while Sagittarius understands the passionate and individualistic needs of its fellow fire sign. With this pair, it’s never dull, and the sparks between them are pretty undeniable.


Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Best partner in love: Taurus, Cancer

Taurus and Cancer are the two homebodies of the zodiac, no one loves a good “Netflix and Chill” more than they do. Their mutually traditional values keep them loyal and grounded, and sweet Cancer will be able to take on stubborn Taurus when things get tough.


Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Best partners in love: Libra, Aquarius

Fun-loving Gemini needs someone to keep them constantly excited and active, so the air signs Libra and Aquarius are perfect for doing just that. Gemini and Aquarius will both respect one another’s individualism and freedom, giving each other the space they need in a relationship, and the balance Libra can provide to Gemini’s somewhat quick moodiness will keep the relationship solid.


Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Best partners in love: Scorpio, Capricorn

Charming Scorpio is a great choice to break Cancer out of their crab shell while still maintaining that emotional bond water signs need, while grounded Capricorn holds similar morals and values to Cancer, making for a solid and unbreakable match.


Leo (July 23-August 22)

Best partner in love: Sagittarius

Social and adventurous Sagittarius is a great match for feisty, proud Leo. Playful and passionate, these two fire signs will love taking on the world together and boosting each other up when it comes to careers.


Virgo (August 23- September 22)

Best partners in love: Taurus, Capricorn

Probably the most determined signs of the zodiac, Virgo and Taurus will conquer the world and leave everyone wondering how they did it. These focused go-getters understand each other’s stable lifestyles flawlessly, and a similar story comes for Virgo and Capricorn, a fellow earth sign.


Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Best partner in love: Gemini

Intelligent and sociable, Gemini easily attracts level-headed Libra. Libra and Gemini will barely clash, unless it’s an intellectual debate, as they both appreciate working through issues calmly and cooly.


Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Best partners in love: Pisces, Cancer

Scorpio with either Pisces or Cancer is the perfect match, as no one understands an emotional water sign like another emotional water sign. Scorpio’s introverted nature is strongly supported by Pisces social outlook, and Cancer is the devoted lover that jealous Scorpio needs.


Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

Best partners in love: Aquarius, Aries

Fun-loving and laid back Aquarius is perfect for free-bird Sagittarius, although Aries’s advances on Sagittarius are pretty much unstoppable. This is a fiery connection that will hold its high energy throughout time.


Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Best partner in love: Virgo

Two peas in a pod, Capricorn and Virgo both love keeping life organized and striving for greatness. Both Cap and Virgo feel like less is more when it comes to friend groups, and will feel safe in having each other to lean on so loyally.


Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Best partners in love: Sagittarius, Pisces

Sag and Aquarius are always high energy and ready to take on whatever life has to throw at them, and Pisces is one of the only other signs of the zodiac that will fully understand an Aquarian’s weirdness. All 3 of these signs are a little adventurous when it comes to love, so pairing them together might make them finally settle down!


Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Best partners in love: Scorpio, Capricorn

Either of these matches is one made in heaven. Pisces and Scorpio are similar in all the right ways: respectable, loyal, passionate, and will understand each other on the emotional level needed to please both water signs. But, steady Capricorn will ground Pisces constant daydreaming.
