Zodiac Sign Compatibility

Aries...

Compatibility: «« Possible

If you are Aries, and your mate is Aries…

…you both are passionate, assertive, independent and ambitious. The relationship could go either way, but there’s an even chance you’ll find happiness together.

You both want to be in charge, all the time. You tend to flare up when things don’t go your way. You’ll succeed as a couple if you thrive on these fireworks but keep them between the two of you. Don’t try to drag in friends and family.

Recognize that there is more than one way to do things. This includes housekeeping! Your mate’s idea of “doing the dishes” might include wiping off the counter and shaking the tablecloth as well as washing plates and glasses. If you each have separate careers and hobbies, you’ll have a larger view of the world and a better chance at keeping the inevitable conflicts from spiraling out of control.

An Aries isn’t the easiest mate to live with, but you have an even chance of success. If you both learn the art of give and take, your Aries/Aries match can be full of spice and playfulness.

Zodiac Sign Compatibility

Compatibility: «««Good

If you are Aries, and your mate is Taurus…

…you’re both passionate, independent, and sensual, and have a good chance of succeeding as a couple.

Taurus is methodical and organized. Your mate is neither a fan of change or much of a party animal. You might have to put some energy into reassuring him or her that a night out with your old friends isn’t a personal rejection.

On the plus side, Taurus could help you put the brakes on out-of-control spending and finally pay off those credit card bills! A Taurus who’s not rigid for the sake of being rigid could be just the dependable and steady mate you need to build a solid future.

And while your Aries spontaneity might feel stifled by your mate’s insistence on sticking to the budget or the game plan, any project you start with your Taurus mate is likely to be completed. This relationship has a good chance of succeeding once you get used to each other’s personalities!



Compatibility: ««««« Extremely good!

If you are Aries, and your mate is Gemini…

… this match has a great chance of succeeding.

Quiet reflection is definitely not your cup of tea, and Gemini doesn’t care for it, either. But while neither of you is much for quiet moonlit walks along the beach, each of you is outgoing and eager to try new experiences. If one of you likes opera and the other loves square dancing or surfing, chances are the other will become at least a willing audience!

You’re spontaneous to the same degree and play off the other’s cues in sexual matters. While you both are bright and clever, Gemini will let you take charge most of the time (or at least, Gemini will let you think you’re the one doing all the leading!)

If your mate is carrying serious emotional baggage from the past (abusive parents, a serious loss at a young age) that he or she hasn’t dealt with, it’s wise to go slow until you know how this will affect your life together.

All things being equal, however, this relationship is an exceptional match. You have everything going for you, so go for it!



Compatibility: «« Possible

If you are Aries, and your mate is Cancer…

…you’ve met someone who is so sensitive that he or she takes everything you say personally, even when you’re really mad about something else. Still, there’s an even chance you can make it work if you find enough common ground.

When you raise your voice, hoping to engage your mate’s attention, Cancer runs for cover. You’re used to taking leaps of faith because you assume it will all work out eventually; Cancer looks but rarely leaps because hey, those rocks down there are sharp! You like to spend money, Cancer wants to save money.

The fireworks in the beginning are likely to get rained out unless you accept the differences as learning opportunities. You can help Cancer persevere in achieving goals; Cancer can help you realize that life isn’t logical and sometimes, emotional decisions are the best in the long run.

If you can focus on the big things you both cherish, such as your interest in building strong family bonds, you’ll have an even chance of staying together for the long term.


Compatibility: ««««« Extremely good!

If you are Aries, and your mate is Leo …

…the question is, can the lion and the ram lie down together in peace and harmony? The answer, fortunately, is Y-E-S! You’re both natural (and effective) bosses, you both have strong egos, you’re both passionate and willing to try new things. The chances for happiness together are very high.

Leo is warm and generous, even if he or she thinks too much about appearances as far as you’re concerned. You are optimistic, spontaneous, and tend to leave projects either completely unfinished or with several loose ends dangling. This drives Leo nuts!

However, you both are passionate and given both to romantic gestures and lots of physical contact. All you have to do to have the romance of the century is figure out who’s in charge of what, because if both of you are in charge of everything, nobody’s really in charge of anything. That’s not good for car maintenance, raising kids, or even deciding which coffee shop to meet at!

This is one of the best, easiest matches around. You are exceptionally well suited for one another. Enjoy!


Compatibility: «« Possible

If you are Aries, and your mate is Virgo…

…opposites attract, for a time. This can be a difficult match, but there are ways to improve your chances of success. The problem is that Virgo mates are shy, hesitant about trying new things, detail-oriented. Your Arien approach to life, on the other hand, is outgoing and impulsive, everything a Virgo secretly wants to be. It’s the old Schoolmarm & the Gambler script that you’ve seen a dozen times on old TV westerns.

But happy-ever-after doesn’t necessarily last beyond the credits. After the honeymoon period, Virgo will begin to worry about your approach, using words like “extravagant” and “rash.” Your first impulse will be to lob back words like “nag” and “over-analytical.” Resist this temptation—because what’s probably going on is that you’ve caught each other being yourselves.

Extravagance is just an extreme form of generosity, and nagging is the dark side of having an organized, analytical personality. As you mature both in age and in your relationship, you’ll become more accepting of these human qualities in each other, and even learn from them.

You have an even chance of making it as a couple, but it will take more work with a Virgo than with someone who’s a better fit.


Compatibility: ««« Good

If you are Aries, and your mate is Libra…

…you’ve met someone whose desire for a quiet life contrasts sharply with your need for adventure, but there’s still a good chance for happiness despite your differences.

And these differences can be dramatic! Take vacations, for instance. Libra’s idea of a great vacation has been two weeks at a rustic little cabin Up North, mostly doing nothing but reading and hiking. Your ideal getaway is breakfast in London, lunch in Paris, and a late, late supper in Rome, and that’s just Day One.

However, your outgoing nature, courage, and depth of experience intrigues Libra. Your mate will enjoy entering the new world you are introducing when you respect the basic differences in your temperaments. Be careful not to overwhelm your mate and you soon will have a new companion for some of your activities.

In turn, you will be fascinated at how well Libra is at charming the world. While you can be vinegar sometimes, Libra is honey, and it works very, very well. It’s a new experience for a take-charge Aries like yourself. You probably will make some mistakes along the way by coming on too strong, but Libra’s symbol is the scales simply because the Libran personality is so good at maintaining a balance! This match has a good chance of providing happiness for both of you.


Compatibility: «« Possible

If you are Aries, and your mate is Scorpio…

…you’re both passionate and the sex will be great, but then there’s the rest of the day to get through. While there’s an even chance you’ll succeed as a couple, an Aries-Scorpio match has built-in problems.

For starters, you both want to be in charge. Scorpio makes decisions thoughtfully, and permanently. You make decisions impulsively, based on intuition rather than logic, but you’re just as stubborn as Scorpio about changing your mind.

Also, Scorpio is more focused on the immediate family than you are. Not having the outside interests you do, he or she can feel shoved aside when you go out with friends for a shopping weekend, fishing trip, or weekly bingo night.

Scorpio also might try to tell you what to do, but not directly so you can deal with it openly. Scorpio communicates with other people by hints, behind-the-scenes manipulation, and mental telepathy. Proceed with caution until you’re sure you’re both on the same page, but then there’s an even chance you will find happiness together.


Compatibility: ««««« Extremely good!

If you are Aries, and your mate is Sagittarius…

…this is a great match. You each have a great sense of humor and enjoy being together. You’re each independent, so no clinging-vine worries here. When you travel together, your route begins to look like a series of figure 8s as you each branch off to follow a separate interest and then come back together at the end of the day/week/year to tell your mate about it.

You share the same taste for the finer things in life, have the same ideas about what’s worth spending money on, and love to give and attend parties. However, your mate is your favorite guest at these social events, and you’re just as likely to chat with him or her than with anybody else.

There might be some conflict because you both tend to act first and think later, and you can be a bit too truthful at times.

Sagittarius is more playful, whereas you tend to push, but the arguments will be over with as fast as they begin. This is one of the best matches there is for you—a real keeper!


Compatibility: ««« Good

If you are Aries, and your mate is Capricorn…

…this is a good match, despite differences in your personalities.

You both have dominant personalities, but Capricorn’s tastes are conservative, disciplined and practical—in politics, schedules, clothing, personal finance, art and automobiles. You think schedules are suggested times plus or minus 90 minutes, and don’t get the concept of budgeting at all. Capricorn is calm and reasonable; you still have an occasional tantrum. Can this relationship be saved?

Certainly it can. This isn’t nearly as bad as it might seem at first glance. Capricorn’s passions run deep. He or she will respond with delight to your sexual approaches and gradually loosen up in other ways as well. Further, your happy-go-lucky ways could use this steadying, maturing influence.

As long as Capricorn doesn’t try to be overly controlling and you don’t fall into an emotional dependency on a Mom or Dad figure, this can be a good match for both of you.


Compatibility: «« Possible

If you are Aries, and your mate is Aquarius…

…you have major differences in how you make decisions, but there’s still an even chance you’ll find happiness together.

You’re both independent, with Aquarius being even more outgoing and spontaneous than you are. You understand one another the first time you meet. In fact, Aquarius’ interests are so wide and varied that you might occasionally feel left out of your mate’s life. It might take some time to feel secure in this relationship (after all, it’s role reversal—YOU’RE usually the more outgoing one!).

One of your main difference is how you make decisions. You make them quickly, based on instinct. Aquarius thinks long and hard about all of the possible implications far down the line. Sometimes this makes sense, but you’ll find it irritating to have long discussions about whether to order carrots or broccoli in a restaurant. Other flash points involve money. You like to spend it as soon as possible. Aquarius wants to manage it for the future.

If you can divide up your task list according to each other’s strengths (Aries plans the vacations, Aquarius books the flights and hotels) you’ll have an even chance of finding happiness together.


Compatibility: ««« Good

If you are Aries, and your mate is Pisces…

…you share a strong interest in the arts, but Pisces’ passivity and shyness are problems. Still, you have a good chance of succeeding as a couple. When Pisces is willing to drop the role of clinging vine, and you are willing to let Pisces see your deeply buried feelings, you can be very happy together.

One of your mate’s main strengths is the depth of his or her emotional life. Your own emotions are deeply buried, and you might find discussing your feelings scary at first. However, Pisces is just the person to introduce you to your softer side.

In turn, you’ll dazzle Pisces with your independence and willingness to try new things. The process of introducing Pisces to your energetic world will be fascinating for both of you. Praise each advance in courage and active participation, especially the first tentative baby steps.

It may take some time, but there is a good chance the relationship will become more balanced and improve the outlook for your happiness together.

Taurus...

Compatibility: ««« Good

If you are Taurus, and your mate is Taurus…

…it’s highly unlikely, because you’re both kind of shy and neither is likely to make the first move. But, if by some miracle you do get together, you’ll have a good chance at happiness with this mate!

You’re both fairly conservative in your approach to living, preferring feel-good movies to thrillers (hey, everyday life is scary enough!) and old friends to new ones. You agree on investment strategies, using coupons at the grocery, and where to make your home, how to decorate it, and when it makes sense to sell.

The downside to a Taurus-Taurus match is the dark side of predictability—boredom. Even though it’s a step outside of your comfort zone, you each need at least one outside interest such as a hobby, sports league, or volunteer work to keep the relationship from going stale.

You’re direct with each other about sexual matters and share so many other sensual pleasures from food to fitness that this relationship has a good chance of success despite the occasional tension.

If you are Taurus, and your mate is Aries…

… this match has a good chance of bringing you happiness. There will be plenty of sparks and romantic energy in the beginning, because Aries’ strong emotions respond to your sensuality.

However, sparks of another kind may begin to replace the passion when your deliberate decision-making and conservative approach to personal spending clashes with Arien spontaneity. You use of words such as “reckless spending” in arguments will not help resolve these differences! You also tend to be a bit possessive, which will annoy free-spirited Aries.

However, each of you enjoys both travel and cocooning at home, and these fundamental lifestyle values trump most of your other differences. Further, your strengths compensate for your mate’s weaknesses. Aries can move you to action when you’re taking too long to make an important decision. In turn, you can help Aries develop more judgment in making decisions.

When you reach an understanding that your differences are a matter of style rather than issues of right and wrong, the chances are good that a long-term relationship will blossom.

If you are Taurus, and your mate is Gemini…

…you’re going to be intrigued by your mate’s whimsical, live-for-today approach to life, which will be a breath of fresh air to your organized, predictable schedule. It’s the old strong-silent-type-falls-for-the-hippie dynamic, and there’s a great chance it will work out well for you.

It all depends on how attached you are to your life as it is right now. Your interests tend toward quiet entertainment, and if there’s one thing a Gemini knows, it’s how to party! A Gemini’s outgoing nature can really bring you out of your shell. What you bring to the relationship is stability, something Gemini may not have experienced before. The secret for success is for you to remain a mate instead of coming on like a parent. When you succeed in letting go of your possessive tendencies, Gemini’s restless nature will calm under your steady influence.

It’s worth investigating, because the two of you together could be a powerful couple. It’s definitely worth the extra attention it will take to get past minor personality differences and really get to know your Gemini mate, because this is one of the great matches for you.

If you are Taurus, and your mate is Cancer…

…rejoice, because a quiet evening reading by the fire is your mate’s idea of a good time too! Cancer is a terrific match for you. Your approaches to money, household matters, family life and play are identical for all practical purposes.

You both enjoy wonderful food, love to decorate your nests inside and out, and share similar tastes in literature and the performing arts. It won’t be too long before you’ll be finishing each other’s sentences and knowing your mate had a bad day at work even before you’re told.

Cancer’s a little more moody than you are, but you’re easy-going and won’t take it personally most of the time. Cancer’s also somewhat insecure, so you get to be the strong, dependable hero a lot of the time. It’s a good thing that “hero” is a role you enjoy!

In return, you’ll have someone who adores you—but who will still give you honest feedback when you get too full of yourself. A Taurus-Cancer match is as good as they come!


Compatibility: «« Possible

If you are Taurus, and your mate is Leo…

…you’d better enjoy a competitive relationship, because Leo needs to win—on the job, in acquiring toys, in the bedroom. The problem is, so do you. You’re just more discreet about it.

This match has a chance of working if you can figure out how to handle Leo’s oversized ego. It could go either way. If you take a chance on this mate, your life will become a little noisier (Leos do roar!) but definitely more interesting.

You might have a hard time seeing Leo’s need for constant praise as anything but a character flaw. It will help if you realize that Leo has larger-than-life talents and abilities, but not necessarily the maturity to handle these gifts. Once Leo relaxes, the need for the spotlight will become less insistent and the focus will turn more to the relationship. Leo’s mentoring can boost your self-confidence and ability to “sell” your ideas on the job and in the community.

In turn, your Tauran qualities of steadiness and dependability can bring out the best in a Leo. If you both care very deeply for each other, you’ll overcome the built-in obstacles and give the match the chance it needs to succeed.

If you are Taurus, and your mate is Virgo…

…you’re far more sensual than your mate, but oh, how much fun it will be to bring his or her undeveloped passion to the surface. There are a few other minor differences but in almost every way, you have a great chance of achieving a satisfying match. You’d be a dynamic domestic team if that’s where the relationship heads.

You both value organization and budgeting. If you start remodeling a room, you finish it, down to the molding underneath the counter and the wallpaper on the switch plates. Neither of you makes many impulse purchases—buying a candy bar at the check-out counter is so out of character that it’s almost a sign of meltdown!

Your differences are both minor and complementary. For instance, you’re probably the better cook and grocery shopper, but Virgo’s the champ at menu planning, often weeks in advance, and knowing what produce is in season.

This partnership works very well in business as well as in your personal life, so if you’re looking for someone to help you start that niche software firm or sell a line of designer cheese, a Virgo would be the place to start. This match has a very good chance of bringing happiness to both of you.


Compatibility: «« Possible

If you are Taurus, and your mate is Libra…

…you’re in for a wild ride. Your differences almost overwhelm the things you have in common, but not quite. This match still has a chance of working.

You find Libra deliciously seductive, but so do other people. Libra’s not necessarily willing to trade the thrill of the chase to settle down with you. It’s not necessarily about sex—it’s about Libra’s unwillingness to make a decision and stick with it. For someone as possessive as a Taurus like you, this can be a real problem.

Libra’s indecisiveness extends into all areas of life. When the issue’s something you consider trivial, such as what suit to wear or which dessert to order, it will drive you nuts if you let it.

On the other hand, you both enjoy the good life and share the same taste in art, food, and cultural events. You probably have comparable careers. Libra is an exceptionally romantic mate. If you can get over the jealousy, he or she might be just the one to show you there’s more to life than a neatly detailed schedule. This relationship has an even chance of succeeding if you both work at it.


Compatibility: ««« Good

If you are Taurus, and your mate is Scorpio…

…you’re both ready to commit to each other. You’re both highly sexed, yet you put a high value on fidelity, and you’re both strong-willed enough to observe it. This pairing has a good chance of turning into a highly-charged, passionate and creative relationship.

One of the downsides is that you’re both intensely stubborn in your own way. It will take some doing to convince the other of a position he or she is initially opposed to.

The other problem is that Scorpio likes secrecy and hidden agendas. Worse, he or she thinks everybody operates that way. The result is that Scorpio can be even more overbearing and possessive than you on your worst day. If you end up walking on eggshells to avoid provoking jealous tantrums, you might regret ever meeting this person!

Since the goal here is for both of you to be happy, find a way to reassure Scorpio that your commitment is solid. An investment in couples therapy, even before any formal commitment, will pay unexpected dividends for both of you and give you a good chance of making it as a couple.


Compatibility: ««« Good

If you are Taurus, and your mate is Sagittarius…

…you’ve met a bright, direct and very uninhibited mate whose love for travel and adventure will take you to places you never knew existed—in bed as well as in the wider world. This match has a good chance of succeeding.

A Sagittarian’s ultimate destination, however, is freedom. For you to go along for the ride, you’ll need to leave behind the security of your known world, including your Tauran need to be in control, your dependence on structure, your serious attitude, and your possessiveness. Be forewarned: Your Tauran friends will see a total mismatch, convinced the relationship is based on some weird, out-of-season meltdown that’s only about sex, but so what?

When your personalities clash, as they inevitably will, there will be arguments. You’ll be tempted to retreat into silence because that’s how Taurans respond to emotional crises. Resist this temptation, especially early in the relationship. Giving your mate the silent treatment will only drive Sagittarius into the arms of someone else. If you have the patience to wait out your mate’s roving eye, your devotion eventually will calm Sag’s frantic need for novelty.

The pairing has a good chance of lasting when Sagittarius finally begins to trust you and you learn that true love means letting go.

If you are Taurus, and your mate is Capricorn…

…this is one of the very best matches either of you could make. Neither of you are romantics of the moonlight-and-flowers variety, but you sure know how to enjoy a good, straightforward romp!

You and Capricorn are a lot alike on other ways as well. You approve of each other’s friends and enjoy getting together with them for picnics, ball games, and parties for special occasions or just because it’s Friday night. You share the same career goals and hobbies.

You handle money the same way, meaning you’re both careful but willing to spend on things you care about. You enjoy decorating your homes, improving your property (although one of you might be a vegetable person and the other, a dedicated rose grower) and committing to season tickets together.

Capricorn’s sense of humor and loyalty go a long way toward melting your need to control. You two are very comfortable together, with just enough spice to ensure an extremely successful pairing. This is one of the very best mate combinations for you, so don’t hold back!


Compatibility: «« Possible

If you are Taurus, and your mate is Aquarius…

…you’re in love with an intellectual of wide-ranging interests and unconventional tastes. Although very different from you, there’s still a chance this relationship will work.

Aquarius is one of those people who has about 500 “best friends” and somehow manages to interact with most of them in any given month. This isn’t the sort of friendship a homebody like you is used to. You’re likely to be dismayed the first time you realize Aquarius is sharing your private life with a few dozen intimate friends.

Worse, Aquarius expects you to be as outgoing as he or she is. This can backfire because the more you’re expected to open up about your feelings, the more likely you are to shut down completely.

It’s important to convince Aquarius to respect your inborn sense of privacy. If this happens, it will give you the confidence you need to express the deep emotions you feel towards your mate. When both of you are patient and committed to each other, the pairing has an even chance of overcoming the difficulties and bringing you happiness.


Compatibility: ««« Good

If you are Taurus, and your mate is Pisces…

…your mate tends to see life in spiritual terms. He or she may be puzzled at your preoccupation with budgets and interest rates and mortgage refinancing. Still, this relationship has a good chance of succeeding.

Since you believe in approaching the business of life in a business-like fashion, you’ll probably be the one in the relationship who has a system for remembering birthdays and oil changes. You’ll be the one who wants to plan an itinerary for your vacation instead of just getting off a plane and going on the first tour bus you see.

Pisces is more likely to have a job instead of a career, and be more interested in processes than outcomes. Pisces places a much higher value on emotion and intuition than you do.

And you know what? You are strong where Pisces is weak, and Pisces is strong where you are lacking. Together, you make a great team. Further, you’ll find Pisces to be an enthusiastic, non-competitive admirer for anything you do. This match has a good chance of success for both of you.Compatibility: ««« Good

Libra’s indecisiveness extends into all areas of life. When the issue’s something you consider trivial, such as what suit to wear or which dessert to order, it will drive you nuts if you let it.

On the other hand, you both enjoy the good life and share the same taste in art, food, and cultural events. You probably have comparable careers. Libra is an exceptionally romantic mate. If you can get over the jealousy, he or she might be just the one to show you there’s more to life than a neatly detailed schedule. This relationship has an even chance of succeeding if you both work at it.


Compatibility: ««« Good

If you are Taurus, and your mate is Scorpio…

…you’re both ready to commit to each other. You’re both highly sexed, yet you put a high value on fidelity, and you’re both strong-willed enough to observe it. This pairing has a good chance of turning into a highly-charged, passionate and creative relationship.

One of the downsides is that you’re both intensely stubborn in your own way. It will take some doing to convince the other of a position he or she is initially opposed to.

The other problem is that Scorpio likes secrecy and hidden agendas. Worse, he or she thinks everybody operates that way. The result is that Scorpio can be even more overbearing and possessive than you on your worst day. If you end up walking on eggshells to avoid provoking jealous tantrums, you might regret ever meeting this person!

Since the goal here is for both of you to be happy, find a way to reassure Scorpio that your commitment is solid. An investment in couples therapy, even before any formal commitment, will pay unexpected dividends for both of you and give you a good chance of making it as a couple.

If you are Taurus, and your mate is Sagittarius…

…you’ve met a bright, direct and very uninhibited mate whose love for travel and adventure will take you to places you never knew existed—in bed as well as in the wider world. This match has a good chance of succeeding.

A Sagittarian’s ultimate destination, however, is freedom. For you to go along for the ride, you’ll need to leave behind the security of your known world, including your Tauran need to be in control, your dependence on structure, your serious attitude, and your possessiveness. Be forewarned: Your Tauran friends will see a total mismatch, convinced the relationship is based on some weird, out-of-season meltdown that’s only about sex, but so what?

When your personalities clash, as they inevitably will, there will be arguments. You’ll be tempted to retreat into silence because that’s how Taurans respond to emotional crises. Resist this temptation, especially early in the relationship. Giving your mate the silent treatment will only drive Sagittarius into the arms of someone else. If you have the patience to wait out your mate’s roving eye, your devotion eventually will calm Sag’s frantic need for novelty.

The pairing has a good chance of lasting when Sagittarius finally begins to trust you and you learn that true love means letting go.

If you are Taurus, and your mate is Capricorn…

…this is one of the very best matches either of you could make. Neither of you are romantics of the moonlight-and-flowers variety, but you sure know how to enjoy a good, straightforward romp!

You and Capricorn are a lot alike on other ways as well. You approve of each other’s friends and enjoy getting together with them for picnics, ball games, and parties for special occasions or just because it’s Friday night. You share the same career goals and hobbies.

You handle money the same way, meaning you’re both careful but willing to spend on things you care about. You enjoy decorating your homes, improving your property (although one of you might be a vegetable person and the other, a dedicated rose grower) and committing to season tickets together.

Capricorn’s sense of humor and loyalty go a long way toward melting your need to control. You two are very comfortable together, with just enough spice to ensure an extremely successful pairing. This is one of the very best mate combinations for you, so don’t hold back!


Compatibility: «« Possible

If you are Taurus, and your mate is Aquarius…

…you’re in love with an intellectual of wide-ranging interests and unconventional tastes. Although very different from you, there’s still a chance this relationship will work.

Aquarius is one of those people who has about 500 “best friends” and somehow manages to interact with most of them in any given month. This isn’t the sort of friendship a homebody like you is used to. You’re likely to be dismayed the first time you realize Aquarius is sharing your private life with a few dozen intimate friends.

Worse, Aquarius expects you to be as outgoing as he or she is. This can backfire because the more you’re expected to open up about your feelings, the more likely you are to shut down completely.

It’s important to convince Aquarius to respect your inborn sense of privacy. If this happens, it will give you the confidence you need to express the deep emotions you feel towards your mate. When both of you are patient and committed to each other, the pairing has an even chance of overcoming the difficulties and bringing you happiness.

If you are Taurus, and your mate is Pisces…

…your mate tends to see life in spiritual terms. He or she may be puzzled at your preoccupation with budgets and interest rates and mortgage refinancing. Still, this relationship has a good chance of succeeding.

Since you believe in approaching the business of life in a business-like fashion, you’ll probably be the one in the relationship who has a system for remembering birthdays and oil changes. You’ll be the one who wants to plan an itinerary for your vacation instead of just getting off a plane and going on the first tour bus you see.

Pisces is more likely to have a job instead of a career, and be more interested in processes than outcomes. Pisces places a much higher value on emotion and intuition than you do.

And you know what? You are strong where Pisces is weak, and Pisces is strong where you are lacking. Together, you make a great team. Further, you’ll find Pisces to be an enthusiastic, non-competitive admirer for anything you do. This match has a good chance of success for both of you.Compatibility: ««« Good

If you are Taurus, and your mate is Aries…

… this match has a good chance of bringing you happiness. There will be plenty of sparks and romantic energy in the beginning, because Aries’ strong emotions respond to your sensuality.

However, sparks of another kind may begin to replace the passion when your deliberate decision-making and conservative approach to personal spending clashes with Arien spontaneity. You use of words such as “reckless spending” in arguments will not help resolve these differences! You also tend to be a bit possessive, which will annoy free-spirited Aries.

However, each of you enjoys both travel and cocooning at home, and these fundamental lifestyle values trump most of your other differences. Further, your strengths compensate for your mate’s weaknesses. Aries can move you to action when you’re taking too long to make an important decision. In turn, you can help Aries develop more judgment in making decisions.

When you reach an understanding that your differences are a matter of style rather than issues of right and wrong, the chances are good that a long-term relationship will blossom.

If you are Taurus, and your mate is Gemini…

…you’re going to be intrigued by your mate’s whimsical, live-for-today approach to life, which will be a breath of fresh air to your organized, predictable schedule. It’s the old strong-silent-type-falls-for-the-hippie dynamic, and there’s a great chance it will work out well for you.

It all depends on how attached you are to your life as it is right now. Your interests tend toward quiet entertainment, and if there’s one thing a Gemini knows, it’s how to party! A Gemini’s outgoing nature can really bring you out of your shell. What you bring to the relationship is stability, something Gemini may not have experienced before. The secret for success is for you to remain a mate instead of coming on like a parent. When you succeed in letting go of your possessive tendencies, Gemini’s restless nature will calm under your steady influence.

It’s worth investigating, because the two of you together could be a powerful couple. It’s definitely worth the extra attention it will take to get past minor personality differences and really get to know your Gemini mate, because this is one of the great matches for you.

If you are Taurus, and your mate is Cancer…

…rejoice, because a quiet evening reading by the fire is your mate’s idea of a good time too! Cancer is a terrific match for you. Your approaches to money, household matters, family life and play are identical for all practical purposes.

You both enjoy wonderful food, love to decorate your nests inside and out, and share similar tastes in literature and the performing arts. It won’t be too long before you’ll be finishing each other’s sentences and knowing your mate had a bad day at work even before you’re told.

Cancer’s a little more moody than you are, but you’re easy-going and won’t take it personally most of the time. Cancer’s also somewhat insecure, so you get to be the strong, dependable hero a lot of the time. It’s a good thing that “hero” is a role you enjoy!

In return, you’ll have someone who adores you—but who will still give you honest feedback when you get too full of yourself. A Taurus-Cancer match is as good as they come!

If you are Taurus, and your mate is Leo…

…you’d better enjoy a competitive relationship, because Leo needs to win—on the job, in acquiring toys, in the bedroom. The problem is, so do you. You’re just more discreet about it.

This match has a chance of working if you can figure out how to handle Leo’s oversized ego. It could go either way. If you take a chance on this mate, your life will become a little noisier (Leos do roar!) but definitely more interesting.

You might have a hard time seeing Leo’s need for constant praise as anything but a character flaw. It will help if you realize that Leo has larger-than-life talents and abilities, but not necessarily the maturity to handle these gifts. Once Leo relaxes, the need for the spotlight will become less insistent and the focus will turn more to the relationship. Leo’s mentoring can boost your self-confidence and ability to “sell” your ideas on the job and in the community.

In turn, your Tauran qualities of steadiness and dependability can bring out the best in a Leo. If you both care very deeply for each other, you’ll overcome the built-in obstacles and give the match the chance it needs to succeed.

If you are Taurus, and your mate is Virgo…

…you’re far more sensual than your mate, but oh, how much fun it will be to bring his or her undeveloped passion to the surface. There are a few other minor differences but in almost every way, you have a great chance of achieving a satisfying match. You’d be a dynamic domestic team if that’s where the relationship heads.

You both value organization and budgeting. If you start remodeling a room, you finish it, down to the molding underneath the counter and the wallpaper on the switch plates. Neither of you makes many impulse purchases—buying a candy bar at the check-out counter is so out of character that it’s almost a sign of meltdown!

Your differences are both minor and complementary. For instance, you’re probably the better cook and grocery shopper, but Virgo’s the champ at menu planning, often weeks in advance, and knowing what produce is in season.

This partnership works very well in business as well as in your personal life, so if you’re looking for someone to help you start that niche software firm or sell a line of designer cheese, a Virgo would be the place to start. This match has a very good chance of bringing happiness to both of you.

If you are Gemini, and your mate is Gemini…

…you both are party animals interested in dancing the night away. You’re interested in everything, and talk about it in charming ways, so your friends adore you. You’re the perfect couple—maybe.

Because you both live life in the fast lane, you rarely slow down to reflect. Neither one of you is very good at the important skill of listening. The quick quip is easier than an honest conversation about things that really matter to your relationship. The sex is good, but will you hold together when one of you gets sick?

The stars are aligned well for this relationship, so there won’t be much work involved in creating a successful couple. Your chances of success are much higher than average when you both can channel some of that energy and zest for living into creating a stable relationship that will survive a stripped transmission (it really WAS an accident, you know), an interfering ex, or your mate’s teenagers.

If you are Gemini, and your mate is Aries…

…you’ll feel treasured, because Aries will court you in the most romantic way, with flowers, candlelit dinners, and spontaneous gifts. This match has a great chance of succeeding.

Okay, sometimes Aries gets a wee bit bossy. The “old” you would end the relationship rather than confront your mate, but the “new” you can take a different approach. If you stand up for yourself from time to time, starting with small, unimportant issues, you can break your pattern of avoiding conflict. This will allow you to see that Aries’ strength of character and your ability to look at both sides of an issue are complementary traits.

What you bring to the relationship is another way of looking at the world that will help Aries loosen up. You two have a lot in common: you both like hiking, travel, offbeat plays and movies, club dates. You don’t have a regular hangout -- you have a dozen! Neither of you likes schedules, preferring the freedom to be spontaneous.

This relationship has so much going for it that the chances of mutual happiness are astronomical!

f you are Gemini, and your mate is Taurus…

….this is a great match. Your lively interest in everything the world has to offer intrigues Taurus from the first moment you meet. It’s such a complete change of pace from the quiet, stable, organized life Taurus is used to.

And you, in turn, warm to the idea of a rose-covered cottage with lace curtains in the windows…for about two weeks. Then you’ll start to feel trapped unless you find a way to draw Taurus into the party. It will be easier than you think to release your mate’s inner “wild bull,” because Taurus secretly loves your ability to party even when things are going wrong. In fact, your mate is actually counting on you for an excuse to leave behind the familiar, boring everyday routine.

Taurus won’t leave behind all the qualities that attracted you in the first place, however. You’ll appreciate your mate’s quiet strength and calm approach to life’s problems.

If Taurus resists feeling threatened by your flirtations, and you appreciate Taurus for who he or she really is, you can build a solid relationship. The work will be worth it, because the chances are very high that Taurus is the right mate for you.


Compatibility: « Possible

If you are Gemini, and your mate is Cancer…

…the relationships has built-in problems, but there’s a chance it will work out.

First, you’ll have to realize that Cancer is sensitive, sometimes very much over-sensitive. He or she takes everything in the relationship very seriously, from being exclusive to remembering anniversaries. A flippant comment from you can cause a sulk that will last for days.

That’s because Cancer has a fragile self-image. Your mate wants constant reassurance of your love, and not just in words. This conflicts with your Gemini need to keep your options open. You could grow to hate the words “We need to talk.”

On the other hand, when things go wrong in your non-love life, there’s nobody who’ll be more supportive than a Cancer personality. And your built-in optimism may be just the help a Cancer needs to quit taking everything so seriously.

So while a Cancer is one of the more difficult matches for a Gemini like yourself, the relationship has a chance of working because you both are willing to support the other in times of trouble.

If you are Gemini, and your mate is Leo…

…you matched well enough that the romance has a good chance of succeeding.

As couple, you’re both resilient enough to weather any storm life sends. You find the same things amusing and play off each other very well, because you are willing to let Leo hog the spotlight. You have romance, affection, and the self-confidence for energetic sex play.

You both have similar mood swings, too. When you’re up, so is Leo. When you’re both down, the clouds are indeed dark.

At times your indecisiveness will annoy Leo, but he or she will get over it. Leo is self-confident enough to overlook your crushes on other people, and although your teasing will annoy, it won’t destroy.

Sometimes your egos will clash and fiery words will be exchanged, but think how much fun it will be to make up afterwards! All things considered, the chance for happiness with a Leo is good.


Compatibility: « Possible

If you are Gemini, and your mate is Virgo…

…there are problems, but there’s a chance the relationship will work if you both want it to.

At first you’re going to feel uneasy, because unlike you, Virgo is cool, reserved, and very analytical. When you make a funny quip, Virgo will kill it by wanting to know why you said that and what you really mean by it.

Further, Virgo is no party animal; in fact, he or she thinks getting together just for the fun of it, without a serious agenda, is a waste of time.

You, on the other hand, think life is entirely too short to be taken seriously, and have the notches on your heart to prove it.

Trying to change someone else rarely works, but if the two of you take your differences in good faith, you have a chance of making this romance last. If nothing else, you can have a good time introducing one another to a new approach to life.

…it will seem too good to be true, but it isn’t! The chances of this relationship succeeding are very high.

You are so well matched that there’s little to disagree about except which restaurant tonight or whether to watch a movie in wide screen or letterbox.
You’ll be good companions for one another, yet not jealous of your mate’s friends or past relationships. You’ll travel, read the same books, and Libra will love your sense of sexual confidence.

Neither of you angers easily, either, so the only thing you really have to worry about in this relationship is whether you can afford it, in the financial sense. That’s because neither of you are good at deferred gratification. You both you tend to buy things (souvenirs, food, stocks, homes…) before asking yourselves if the purchase really makes sense.

If all else fails, you might consider adopting a Taurus friend to help you keep expenses in line! Once you have the money problem tamed, or agree not to worry that it’s untamed, the chance of happiness together is very high.


Compatibility: « Possible

If you are Gemini, and your mate is Scorpio…

…there are difficulties, but there’s a chance you’ll make it as a couple.

If you’re looking for a fling with no commitment/no regrets, a Scorpio probably isn’t the best choice. Scorpio is a very private, intense person who takes a sexual relationship very seriously while still enjoying it deeply.

In addition to a passionate, sensual response, however, a Scorpio tends to be demanding and jealous, especially when provoked by your involvement with other people. And don’t try to deny that’s what you’re doing! Scorpio has a sixth sense that sees right through your attempts to cover up your flirtations.

If you’re ready for monogamy, however, Scorpio’s intensity can ground you. You will never doubt your mate’s love, although you probably will have to give reassurances of your love any number of times.

Fasten your seat belt, because it’s going to be a bumpy ride, but there’s a chance it also will be an exhilarating romance.


Compatibility: ««« Good

If you are Gemini, and your mate is Sagittarius…

…there is a good chance this relationship will work.

Your mate is somewhat more of an intellectual than you, and you find this very appealing. You’re the more social of the pair. These characteristics balance to make you an exciting couple, and people love to have you around. There are lots of fun invitations in your future!

You’ll enjoy learning from each other as long as Sagittarius doesn’t act superior and tones down his or her natural bossiness, and you make an effort to listen as much as you talk.

You’re each secure enough that you don’t have to spend every minute of free time together. You can share your respective interests without demanding that the other participate in every one. In fact, part of the fun is hearing what’s been happening in the other person’s life after a brief absence.

Since you both need plenty of freedom, avoiding possessiveness and jealousy is the key to a rich relationship. The chances of a successful long-term match are good.




Compatibility: «« Possible

If you are Gemini, and your mate is Capricorn…

…there are problems because your personalities clash in some areas, but there’s a chance it will work out.

You’re going to have to decide how important your free-spirited, happy-go-lucky approach is to your sense of who you are. That’s because a Capricorn values organization and predictability. His or her early life experiences probably differ from yours, and Capricorn takes security very seriously.

You, on the other hand, think life is worth living only when you can plunge fully into each day’s offerings. You’re suspicious of anyone who suggests that life can be lived deeply in just one area or with just one person.

Still, there’s a chance you will succeed as a couple. If you can settle down with one highly dependable mate without feeling you’ve given up an essential part of yourself, Capricorn probably will lighten up a bit, too. It still won’t be the easiest relationship, but you share enough basic family values that your love can smooth out the rough spots.

Aquarius loves your sense of humor and consistent cheerfulness, and you like how Aquarius always has a different take on things. You both like to talk, but you get to the point more quickly than Aquarius, who tends to ramble. Still, there’s nobody who listens to you as intently as your mate.

Even if it doesn’t work out for the long-term, you’ll stay friends, but chances are very good this match is a keeper.


Compatibility: «« Possible

If you are Gemini, and your mate is Pisces…

…it won’t be the easiest match around, but there’s a chance it will work out.

You’ll have to approach a Pisces more thoughtfully, and more slowly, than you would a person with a less sensitive personality. Otherwise, Pisces might find your high spirits overwhelming at first, and misinterpret your playful teasing as a put-down.

Your approaches to love are very different, also. You have a carefree attitude, Pisces tends toward possessiveness. The more you express your need for freedom, the shorter the leash Pisces wants to keep you on. It’s important to reach an understanding early on that you still have your own life to live.

The chances of this happening are reasonably good, because you both are flexible and willing to adapt to the other’s needs. Pisces needs a devoted fan club to feel secure, and you need your mate’s intuition for problems you can’t solve by thinking them through. You understand the other’s moods, too. A Pisces has gradual mood changes, while yours are more dramatic and abrupt, but you each respect what the other is going through.

If you are truly head-over-heels for a Pisces, this match has a chance of succeeding.

…the relationship could go either way, but there’s an even chance it will succeed.
 
You’re very much alike, so you understand each other perfectly. This seems like it should be a good thing, but there’s a downside. There’s nothing to steady the high emotions you both thrive on.
 
With both of you being sensitive, demanding, and very much in tune with your own psychological concerns, you can exhaust each other at the worst possible time. Small differences become magnified and you end up snarling at each other over whose turn it is to pay the electric bill.
 
You both have an enormous amount of love to give one another, so it’s important to avoid living a life centered only on yourselves. The key is to direct your focus outward at least half the time. Volunteer work or an exciting new hobby can go a long way to break the habit of thinking it’s all about you.
 
This strategy will improve your chances of succeeding as a couple.

In the beginning, you’ll be so dazzled by his or her extroverted nature and amazing energy that you’ll think the two of your are a perfect match. Later, however, Aries’ party style and extravagant spending may make you wonder what you ever saw in this person.
 
Try to get past this stage without making too many scenes. You’re both homebodies, which is more important in the long run than some harmless flirtation or a spending spree. It will be difficult, given your sensitive nature, but you’ll have to learn that Aries’ roving eye has nothing to do with you. Instead, it’s an expression of Aries’ fear of premature commitment. And Aries will have to learn that you’re not being moody on purpose; it’s just part of your Cancer personality.

This can cause problems, because you tend to respect people who know who they are. Gemini is also flippant, and this can leave you with permanently injured feelings if you let it get to you. The trick is to detach from the smart remarks. Most of the time Gemini is either just playing with words.
 
However, if you don’t mind mothering another adult, you’ll find your attentions very much appreciated. Gemini can be as moody as an adolescent, with the same kind of attention span. Your Cancer steadiness and empathy is a welcome relief most of the time. Your sexual energies are a good fit and you will enjoy the attention Gemini gives you, as well as the new experiences Gemini introduces you to (both in and out of the house).
 
Gemini will flee at the first sign of apron strings, whether they’re attached to a BBQ apron or to something frilly. There is a chance for the relationship to prosper if Gemini settles down somewhat, or if you can keep from going all possessive.

If you are Cancer, and your mate is Leo…
 
…the pairing has a chance if you can adjust for a certain loud exuberance that you’d call aggression if you weren’t so enamored!
 
Leo has an ego as loud as the roar, but you’ve spent your whole life soothing ruffled egos so this won’t be a problem for you.  Your genuine admiration alongside continued support is just what Leo needs to stay king (or queen) of the jungle.
 
Leo’s good for you as well. Your own dark moods lift much sooner when you’re with outgoing, cheerful Leo, whose energetic disposition is just the thing to chase away stormy weather.
 
The problems come down to the fact that the two of you have very different basic personalities. You’re basically a homebody, interested in providing a cozy, safe nest for your mate and probably children and extended family. Leo the extrovert craves the spotlight, public praise, and situations that require tough decisions so he can show who’s boss.
 
Still, as long as you are willing to continue to soothe Leo’s hurts without resenting his or her noise, you’ll have a chance for a successful romance.

If you are Cancer, and your mate is Virgo…
 
…both of you live for others, so the only competition you’ll have is seeing how much you can do for each other. This match is one of the best there could be for you.
 
There are some minor differences in temperament that you’ll need to be aware of, but nothing to cause you to walk away. You are more emotional than Virgo, which will be a good brake on Virgo’s reliance on logic. However, Virgo is steady and focused, which works exceedingly well with your need for security.
 
Virgo is more analytical than you are, and so you’ll have to be ready to stand up for yourself if Virgo starts to disparage your “emotional” reactions. For your part, you might find Virgo’s fussiness annoying at times, and sometimes he or she will seem detached.
 
Since you both are very warm and loving, the future looks much brighter for you with Virgo than with most other mates. This relationship has a very good chance of lasting.

If you are Cancer, and your mate is Libra…
 
 …you’ll have to make most of the decisions for both of you, but that’s all right as long as Libra promises not to second-guess your calls.
 
Once you come to terms with Libra’s difficulty in making decisions, however, you’ll find a whole world of fascinating discussion. Libra moves in a wide circle of intelligent friends. You’ll probably find most of them shallow because they don’t talk about their feelings easily, but you can have a good time if you take an anthropological approach and pretend you’re observing an exotic tribe!
 
Your Libra mate might seem a little detached at first, and careless about spending money, but because you both love beauty, you can accept these differences and build a fabulous nest together.
 
Or two fabulous nests with visiting rights, depending on how far you’re willing to accommodate Libra’s need to escape your moods occasionally. If the love is truly there, you’ll come up with a long-term solution that works for you and gives you an even chance for your happiness lasting into the future.

If you are Cancer, and your mate is Scorpio…
 
…you have a great future together, because this is one of the best matches there is for the two of you.
 
Scorpio’s deep, steady emotion kindles the flames of your desire, and together you build a relationship as deep as it is passionate. You admire Scorpio’s determination and moral security. Scorpio, in turn, finds peace and security in your arms because your sensuality is matched only by your loyalty.
 
There are some differences to get accustomed to. Your moods change quickly. Scorpio’s emotions are like a large ocean liner—it takes a while for your mate to turn them around.
 
Scorpio is so insecure he or she may try to dominate you at first. It’s the only way your mate knows to keep from getting hurt. However, your possessive nature will defuse this by making your mate feel more highly valued and secure about your commitment.
 
With you both feeling totally loved and secure, your chances of a lifetime of happiness together are very good.

If you are Cancer, and your mate is Sagittarius…
 
…it’s not an impossible match, but there are built-in problems. Sagittarius will introduce you to new intellectual worlds, but you’ll always be wondering where you stand.
 
As a Cancer, you tend to commit totally to your destiny, and for you, that means home and family. Sagittarius, who is used to thinking in cosmic terms when abstractions are involved, tends to exit stage left at the mention of the word “future” with its implication of commitment. You’re a homebody, but it seems to you as if roving Sagittarius considers any body a home. Your strength is nurturing, but Sagittarius calls it smothering.
 
This pairing is a bit like a romance between a college sophomore and the world-renowned head of the department. You’re not really social equals, and you’re never really sure of your mate’s commitment. Is there really a conference in Stockholm, or just a very good friend with very blond hair?
 
There may be nothing permanent here for a Cancer but an education. However, if the sex is good and you have other mutual interests, there’s an even chance you can succeed as a long-term couple.

If you are Cancer, and your mate is Capricorn…
 
…there are real differences in outlook, but you have a chance of happiness together.
 
You have a job for money, but your real job is taking care of the important people in your life. Capricorn is married to a career, and even family usually comes a distant second to work demands. Never mind that neither the boss nor the stockholders are going to be there when Capricorn is recovering from open-heart surgery! Capricorns just don’t think in terms of emotional needs, either their own or other people’s—they’re all about goals and objectives.
 
However, Capricorn’s patience and responsibility help you feel protected, and your warmth helps Capricorn feel needed and loved even though he or she isn’t used to thinking in those terms.
 
For this reason, a successful Cancer-Capricorn pairing often has the same ingredients as a traditional 1950s-style marriage. When Capricorn is the one bringing home the bacon and Cancer is the one who cooks it (regardless of which gender takes which role), the long-term chances of success are even.

If you are Cancer, and your mate is Aquarius…
 
…there’s a good chance you’ve found a lifelong companion.
 
Aquarius can be cool and aloof much of the time; also emotionally detached, sometimes sarcastic, and often unpredictable. The exception is when your mate is involved in a  project to save the world, or at least a tiny piece of it. Then Aquarius is very much engaged—as long as the demands are global instead of personal.
 
You, on the other hand, are not only emotional but comfortable expressing emotions in public. You’re sensitive and nurturing.
 
Problems occur when Aquarius forgets to leave the office at the office. An Aquarian’s lacerating wit might amuse you when it’s directed at the opposition, but when you’re the target, it’s going to hurt. Also, Aquarius is likely to regard your mothering as an attempt to control rather than heal.
 
A good sex life will mask many of these issues for a while, but sooner or later you’re going to have to face them. Couples therapy (even if marriage is not in the picture) will give your relationship a good chance of succeeding if you truly cannot live without this person.

If you are Cancer, and your mate is Pisces…
 
…you have found an exquisitely wonderful match, as close to perfect as they come.
 
You’re both affectionate, sensitive, and sexually responsive. Pisces has a wild imagination, but you have the practical skill to turn some of those dreams into reality. If Pisces is a singer, you’re the business manager who can take your mate’s career to the next level. If Pisces races cars, you’re the mechanic who keeps it in peak running condition. You communicate without talking, and you can go for long periods of time without needing anyone else in your life but your mate.
 
You’ll be the leader, most of the time; Pisces has a fear of success that holds him or her back and sometimes leads to self-sabotage. This is when your inborn protectiveness turns out to be an asset rather than a liability for your mate…as long as you remember to turn it off as soon as the danger is over. Pisces won’t be able to learn how to handle freedom if you hover.
 
You have a wonderful and exciting future ahead of you! Go for it!

…the relationship has a good chance of succeeding.
 
You’re going to have fun figuring out who reigns in what part of the kingdom. As long as you know it’s going to be an issue, you can deal with it up front, without an excessive amount of roaring.
 
Stake out territory right at the start -- one of you decides what you’ll do Friday night, the other how you’ll spend Sunday.  Competition (in areas only where you’ve agreed to compete!) should add spice to your already grand passion for one another.
 
Once that’s settled, chances are good you’ll have an exuberant life together. You’re royalty, after all! You have the same tastes, interests, spending habits; neither is shy about expressing needs and wants, and you know exactly where the other person is coming from.
 
If you take your competition into the area of creativity, you’ll do magnificently together, whether it’s a remodeling job, or customizing a van, or landscaping your nest. There will be some squabbles, but overall the chances of happiness together are good indeed.

…better invest in flame-retardant linens, because the sparks will fly in the bedroom. This is one of the best, most passionate, matches a Leo could possibly make.
 
You share the same likes and dislikes in sex and every other area, so you are exceptionally well matched with an Aries. You share the same fiery energy, you both know who you are, and you both love a challenge. Other than another Leo, there’s no one who can handle your flamboyance and match your passion quite as well as an Aries.
 
Because you’re both competitive, you’ll each want to be the alpha in the couple, but you’re both smart enough to know when to back off. If you can both tame your outsized egos so that the other person can enjoy the spotlight from time to time, your romance can be the stuff of legend.
 
There’s no question you should go for it—chances are you’ll never find a more perfect match!
 
 
Compatibility: «« Possible
 
If you are Leo, and your mate is Taurus…
 
…there are problems, but still a chance you’ll find happiness together.
 
Taurus shares your strong ego, but is more conservative than you are in lifestyle, spending habits, and relationships. You’re not likely to receive the unqualified adoration from Taurus that you might find from another personality. And your sudden interest in new ideas and new projects means your mate might not be able to keep up with you unless you’re so lost to love that you’re willing to slow down.
 
You expect everybody and everything to adapt to you, rather than the other way around. This can cause problems when you’re mate’s a Taurus. You want to remodel the house to gain more storage space, Taurus thinks you should just throw out stuff you haven’t used in years. And you’re both so stubborn that neither wants to adapt to the other.
 
The potential for personality conflict is so great that a Leo should be very sure of Taurus’s willingness to learn new ways of relating before making the relationship permanent. However, if you see signs that Taurus is willing to bend, and you can bend a little without resenting it, then there’s a chance that the two of you will succeed as a couple.

If you are Leo, and your mate is Gemini…
 
…you’re more intense about life and love than your mate, but the outlook is good if Gemini commits. You both enjoy an active social life. You love parties, season tickets to ball games and the theater. You’re so interested in movies that you see the “Best Picture” nominees long before the Academy Awards ceremony takes place.
 
However, Gemini’s lively independence keeps you on your toes. The courtship phase seems to go on and on. This is good for Gemini, but exhausting for you, and it also taps into your well-hidden insecurity.
 
Further, you’re more intense than Gemini, and prone to jealousy when you feel your devotion isn’t treasured. Gemini talks too much, but you hog the spotlight, so these traits cancel each other out.
 
The chances of success as a couple are good, when you truly enjoy being in each other’s company. If Gemini will meet your commitment at least part way, your steady self-confidence will have a chance to calm your mate’s restlessness. Then the outlook will be good for the success of your romance.

…moonlight, flowers, a good wine, a romantic cruise all await you. However, you’re looking for fireworks and intense emotion, while Cancer is more comfortable with a deep, quiet, meaningful life. Still, there is a chance this will work out for you.
 
Cancer’s basically a homebody, interested in providing a cozy, safe nest for you, your children, and probably your extended family, including unattached friends. You’re less domestic. The home stage just isn’t big enough for someone who craves the spotlight like you do.
 
Cancer sometimes goes off the deep end emotionally, but because your mate thinks you can do no wrong, you suddenly don’t mind the tears as much as you used to.
 
Curiously, this mixture has a chance of working. That’s because Cancer’s not at all interested in competing with you on the public stage. In turn, you’re very grateful that you don’t have to deal with petty, practical things such as balancing a checkbook or waiting around for the plumber to show up.

If you are Leo, and your mate is Virgo…
 
…there’s a chance it will work out for you, but there will be some problems.
 
Virgo thinks your reactions are often over the top, and tries to bring you back to earth. Sometimes Virgo does this too often. This will cause friction until Virgo realizes the value of picking his or her battles.
 
Further, Virgo knows the value of a penny, and doesn’t think you do. Your spending strikes your mate as extravagant and irresponsible.
 
However, since all you really enjoy is focusing on the Big Picture, you need someone in your life who has a head for detail. Virgo is the perfect person to take on this role. If you truly love one another, your best chance for making this work will be if you each move a bit to accommodate your mate.
 
Practical Suggestion: Since money is likely to be the major area of conflict, think about setting up your finances so that you can each maintain separate bank accounts as well as one joint household account that you both contribute to. This will defuse some of the issues in the relationship and improve the chances for the romance to succeed.

Libra certainly understands that your business pursuits are creative projects as well, so when you’re putting in 80-hour weeks to get past a crisis, Libra will understand perfectly. You’re well-matched sexually, too, but remember that Libra may need more romancing than you to get in the mood.
 
The downsides are few. Your mate sometimes gets too involved in a project to pay you the kind of attention you think you deserve. You sometimes get too involved with yourself to see that Libra is discontent. But these are minor issues, and you both are smart enough to work through them before they become serious problems. A Leo-Libra relationship has a very good chance of succeeding in every regard. Go for it!

You need a crowd to play to. Scorpio is more of a background person and sees your need for applause as a character flaw. You growl but get over things. Scorpio explodes and keeps on brooding. At first Scorpio may be jealous of your sociability, but the jealousy will fade when the depth of your commitment to the relationship becomes apparent.
 
The strengths that give your romance a good chance of succeeding are that you both are determined, passionate, and vulnerable. Scorpio’s self-control is a good balance for your exuberance and extravagance, and you both secretly enjoy the melodrama of your big fights.
 
This pairing has a good chance of long term success. There may always be battles, but over time they will tend to seem like rituals rather than war. Reconciliations will be fun!

Sagittarius is a bit of a loner. Your mate might want to take a vacation without you now and then. Sagittarius is also slower to commit than you are; a Sag likes to play the field as long as possible. In time, however, you’ll win your mate’s loyalty. If anyone can persuade a Sag to settle down, it’s you.

You have an appetite for grand opera, grand gestures, grand entrances. Capricorn values only things that are practical. This means sensible shoes instead of dancing sandals, a sedan instead of a sports car, one box of cereal open at a time.
 
Still, this romance can go places. If a Capricorn insists that his or her way is the right way, and that you are a self-indulgent spendthrift pig for being different, run, don’t walk. But a Capricorn who is outgoing and open to a moderate amount of socializing can be a good companion because you both appreciate the good things in life.

Aquarius can be critical. At first you’ll probably walk on eggshells for a while,. trying to do everything “right.” Then, you’ll explode. That’s okay. Aquarians have to learn the hard way that nobody, especially a Leo, appreciates being critiqued every day in every way. There are likely to be chilly silences after one of your “I am the ruler of them all” antics, instead of the grand quarrels you’re used to with a more outgoing partner. That’s because Aquarius would rather snipe from the sidelines than engage you directly.
 
But that’s the worst of it. The good news is that there is considerable physical attraction between the two of you, even though Aquarius is much less emotional and demonstrative than you.
 
Because you both are interested in children and family life, there’s plenty of motivation to make this love affair last. You’ll have a chance at “happy ever after” when Aquarius finally comes to his or her senses and sees that you really are the best thing that’s ever come along.

If you are Leo, and your mate is Pisces…

The problem is that you represent exuberance and directness, and Pisces is only comfortable with introspection and mystery. If the attraction is there, you’ll have to tone down your act somewhat. Otherwise, Pisces, who has led a sheltered life, will be too terrified to say hello.
 
It will take a Pisces some time to get used to your need for applause, but true love will eventually convince your mate that this a virtue rather than a moral failing. Because you are comfortable in the spotlight, and a born leader, you can make good things happen, in the larger world as well as in your own relationship.
 
In turn, a Pisces can put your defeats into perspective. Pisces is artistic, creative, and mystical in ways you can only begin to understand, but the process of learning about these things will fascinate you.
 
If you give this match time to blossom on its own, without rushing, there’s a chance you’ll find Pisces to be your true mate after all.

…it won’t be an easy match at first, but there’s a very good chance your romance will blossom.

The problem is, you both know the best way to do things. Let’s just hope it’s the same way, because you both are stubborn as mules. The good news is that neither of you is inclined to give up easily on a task, on an idea, or on another person. Like Edison trying to invent the light bulb, you just keep trying until you get it to work.

In addition, you’re both responsible, bright, serious about your mate. You see what needs to be done, and all the steps needed to get there.

On the down side, every Virgo is a bit insecure. You tend to expect too much from other people, but in your defense, you never ask anyone to do something you haven’t already done yourself.

You both experience a fair amount of free-floating anxiety. The minute you hear about a disease, you discover you have all the symptoms! Long-term success is highly likely, so a very good health care plan is a wise investment.


Zodiac Sign Compatibility

Compatibility: «« Possible

If you are Virgo, and your mate is Aries…

…your boat is gonna be rocked. The romance might go either way, but there is a chance of success.

The difference lies in your personalities. Aries doesn’t know the meaning of the word “insecurity.” Your mate is a leader, a risk taker, someone who is used to cutting to the chase.

You, on the other hand, believe in taking things one step at a time, documenting each move. It will be hard to get Aries to sit down and talk things through.

What gives this a chance of working is that Aries’ confidence and leadership can allay many of your anxieties. Your mate’s can-do attitude matches yours when there is a specific task to be accomplished. You’re halfway home if Aries will agree that your way also is a valid approach to getting things done, just not one he or she has the patience for.

If you can keep from taking Aries’ blunt opinions and quick temper personally, there’s a chance that you’ll be able to make the relationship permanent.


Compatibility: «««« Very good

If you are Virgo, and your mate is Taurus…

…this is an excellent match. You have found a steady, dependable mate who will help you make your dreams a reality.

Taurus is as cautious as you are about decisions, but more persistent. Your mate also is considerably less afflicted with the anxiety that tends to discourage you from taking action. You each tend to finish what you start, but Taurus frets a lot less about the outcome than you do.

The flip side of persistence is stubbornness (guess where the term “bull-headed” comes from!) This can couple with your nagging, critical side to send the relationship into an unhealthy downward spiral.

It doesn’t have to be this way, however. You’re both bright, loving, sensual people. If you make a habit of assuming the best about one another, you’ll love your mate for who he or she is, not some ideal lover you have created in your head.

You and your Taurus mate have a very good chance at succeeding as a couple in the long term.

If you are Virgo, and your mate is Gemini…

…this pairing could go either way, so there’s a chance it will succeed.

You may end up feeling like such an old fuddy-duddy the first time you meet. Gemini is one of those people whose interests keep them forever energized and seemingly, forever young.

Gemini’s interests include taking things apart to find out how they work. However, your mate’s attention span isn’t the longest, and he or she frequently loses interest in putting things back together. Your discipline and stability can provide the grounding that Gemini very much needs.

As for you, if you can get over your inborn wish to reform every person you meet, and give up worrying about catching the disease-du-jour, you’ll find Gemini’s joy of living is rubbing off on you.

You’ll always have to overlook Gemini’s perpetual adolescence in some matters (impulsiveness, for instance, and a wandering eye) but the love affair has a chance of working because you will remain great friends through it all.


Compatibility: «««« Very good

If you are Virgo, and your mate is Cancer…

…you both will find a blessed new security in each other’s arms. This is one of the great matches for you.

Cancer is more emotional than you, which will be a good brake on your sometimes total reliance on logic. Cancer is also more defensive than you and takes everything personally. Your mate will have a hard time taking a direct approach to anything. A Cancer will hint rather than come right out and say what’s on his or her mind, even for something as trivial as what flavor of ice cream you should get at the grocery. Be prepared for some interesting miscommunications.

On the bright side, a Cancer will never accuse you of being domineering or overprotective, and his or her warmth will shower you with the attention you need to feel secure.

This relationship has a very good chance of lasting as long as you and Cancer make a pact to refuse to let your differences get in the way.

If you are Virgo, and your mate is Leo…

…the road to romance will be rocky because Leo’s personality is so strong, but there’s still a chance it can work.

You may feel overwhelmed at first by Leo’s thoroughly outgoing nature, which is so totally the opposite of yours. You might also be put off by Leo’s need for the spotlight and lack of interest in budgets.

When you fight, you’ll be tempted to call Leo “arrogant.” Leo, in turn, will accuse you of being obsessive about maintaining your privacy and substituting attention to detail for living life to the fullest. “Prissy” will be the word-weapon hurled at you.

However, once you get to know Leo, you’ll be enchanted by the generous, loyal side of your mate’s personality. Things will have a chance to blossom when you finally accept that your practicality complements Leo’s unreserved love for you. Then the romance can begin in earnest, and you’ll have a chance to build a long-lasting relationship.


Compatibility: «« Possible

If you are Virgo, and your mate is Libra…

…there’s a chance that this will work, but only if you can get Libra to make a decision.

Libra’s good and bad points are the same. Your mate looks at both sides of an issue before making a decision. While this appeals to your own thoughtful personality, Libra has a hard time knowing when to quit looking. Some issues have more than two sides, with each factor being contingent on something else. Complex issues, especially those with an emotional component, can paralyze Libra. If your mate has a hard time deciding between chocolate ice cream and vanilla pudding, think how difficult it will be to commit to you!

However, many Libras take a more moderate approach and don’t sweat the small stuff. It really doesn’t matter to them whether they live in a loft or a side-by-side, drink domestic or imported, or vacation in the mountains or the seashore.

With this kind of Libra, the scales are tipped in your favor and the romance has a chance of outlasting the first weeks of infatuation.

If you are Virgo, and your mate is Scorpio…

But hey, a worst-case Virgo is no picnic either, what with the nagging and nit-picking. So cut a Scorpio some slack. Most of the time all you’ll really have to cope with are Scorpio’s gloomy moods during tough times. Your Virgo logic and sensitivity can help you both weather these storms.

It’s worth it, because a committed mate who is a Scorpio is loyal, very sensual, and insightful. You will feel loved and protected in this relationship, and you’ll be best friends as well.

Because both of you are disciplined and persistent, you have a good chance of enjoying a long, full life together.


Compatibility: «« Possible

If you are Virgo, and your mate is Sagittarius…

…this might work, and it might not. Your mate is not nearly as interested in security as you are, which might be a problem if you’re looking for a permanent commitment.

Procrastination is a big part of the Sagittarian personality, and it will drive your ordered, logical Virgo self wild with annoyance. Further, your mate tends to say what he or she thinks, regardless of how tactless this is. You’ll have to develop a thicker skin to be happy with this particular mate.

On the bright side, Sagittarius’ adventurous approach to life will widen your horizons in all areas of your life. And Sagittarius is nothing if not resilient. Neither financial melt-down nor illness can destroy the zest for life Sagittarians exude, and this will help you keep from being overwhelmed during bad times.

You both have a great sense of humor, so you can enjoy the relationship as long as you can keep in check your Virgo anxiety about the future. If it’s any consolation, there’s a chance that you’ll succeed whether you worry or not, so why waste the time feeling anxious?

You have complementary talents: Capricorn is a little more secure than you, and more ambitious, while your analytical tendencies are more finely honed. Together, you are an unbeatable team at anything you attempt in business, politics, the social arena, and your personal spheres.

Caps tend to be workaholics, and at their worst, social climbers. Until they are absolutely sure of someone, they keep their complaints to themselves. As a sensitive Virgo, you are more in tune with the personal side of life, so you’ll have a moderating influence on these tendencies.

The only major flash point between you is money. A Capricorn spends more freely than a Virgo, and logic is not always the first priority. If you can keep from pointing out too often that a BMW is a want rather than a need, you’ll get along just fine and have a great chance of succeeding.

If you are Virgo, and your mate is Aquarius…

…this is a great match for you.

There are differences between you and Aquarius, it’s true. Your mate loves humanity, but would rather not deal with the problems of individual people. He or she’s much more comfortable discussing ideas rather than day-to-day issues or (yikes!) your relationship.

Aquarius is passionate about equal rights. Your mate has friends from all continents, religions and social classes, yet Aquarius’s involvement never moves beyond the theoretical. You, on the other hand, have day-to-day situations you need help with. When you finally realize how airy-fairy Aquarius is much of the time, it will grate against your practical, can-do attitude. But only for a while. You’ll get over it.

What saves you as a couple is that communication is your strong point, and it’s Aquarius’s as well. You both bring unpredictability and creativity into your love-making. Although your styles differ in many ways, the ability to express yourself clearly and hear what the other is really saying gives you a solid foundation for a love affair that will be very strong and lasting. This romance has a very good chance of success.


Compatibility: «« Possible

If you are Virgo, and your mate is Pisces…

…this is an iffy match, but can still succeed. If it does, your problem-solving skills will get a workout, because Pisces always has a problem. And that’s the problem. A Pisces reacts rather than acts, and has a history of falling for the wrong person. You might have to work a bit to convince your Pisces mate that you aren’t just one more in a long string of gold-diggers and jerks.

An extremely sensitive nature and powerful imagination are the keys to understanding this relationship. Pisces tends to over-react to setbacks you take in stride, such as a dead battery or a bad call by a referee. Until Pisces matures enough to sort out which problems are worth getting upset about, he or she is an emotional basket-case.

It may never have occurred to Pisces that it doesn’t have to be this way. Your steady practicality may come as a revelation. In turn, Pisces can add a healthy dose of imagination to your overly logical life, and connect you to the rest of humanity in a way you haven’t been able to achieve until now. If you can wait around until Pisces learns to trust you, there is a chance that you will succeed as a couple.

If you are Libra, and your mate is Libra…
 
…you have a high probability of success.
 
You’re everybody’s favorite couple. You have elegant taste, you’re both great conversationalists, you enjoy the same books, plays, and movies. You’re also very compatible as lovers, because you know what pleases the other and are happy to provide it.
 
The downside is that neither of you is really comfortable with deeply emotional situations. You both have a hard time committing for keeps, or believing that the other one has! And because you avoid confrontation, nobody will even admit that this is a problem.
 
This doesn’t mean serious trouble in the long run. If you take the right approach, you have a extremely good chance of succeeding as a couple. One possible solution is for each of you to have some outside interests that your mate doesn’t, whether it’s a hobby, volunteer work, sports, or taking a class. This not only will provide you with helpful feedback but it will give you and your mate new things to teach one another.

If you are Libra, and your mate is Aries…
 
…there’s a good chance for a successful romance.
 
Your desire for peace and quiet will be shaken by Aries’ risk-taking. This is probably a good thing; Aries’ boundless energy can keep you from turning into a hermit.
 
Aries likes to be the leader and you’re more comfortable with someone else making the decisions, so this also is a plus.
 
On the other hand, an Aries often has a hard time walking in someone else’s moccasins, so you’ll have to set boundaries to make this work. Otherwise, Aries‘ energy and enthusiasm might steamroll your very real need for peace and quiet. You have a right to your ordered existence as long as you don’t use it to avoid necessary change or discussion.
 
Work out these details, and there is a good chance that this match will work out fine for both of you, both now and in the future.
 
 
Compatibility: «« Possible
 
If you are Libra, and your mate is Taurus…
 
…you have different approaches to getting what you want, but there’s a chance things will work out between you.
 
You both love the finer things of life: the wine, the furniture, the clothes, the cars. The difference is how you go about getting them.
 
You embrace the concept of credit and the minimum monthly payment. Taurus is strictly Cash or What We Can Pay Off by the Due Date. Because you hate confrontation (especially about hot topics like money!), this is likely to be the biggest issue in the relationship.
 
Beyond that, Taurans are homebodies and you’re a social butterfly. You might have to work a bit to pry Taurus out of the house and into the car for a weekend getaway, but the effort will be worth it. Don’t overdo this, however. Taurus needs that quiet time, even if you don’t!
 
The solution for this is to go to some parties with your own friends. Taurus may fear you are losing interest, but once trust is established, your relationship has a chance because you have so much in common.

Neither of you is very decisive, but you’re so easygoing it doesn’t matter! You’re both cheerful, affectionate, and outgoing, the life of the party. As a couple, you will never be without invitations.
 
A Gemini is never bored. Because of your mate’s wide range of interests, other people might consider Gemini shallow, but the truth is, he or she has deep emotions but also the ability to let go if things don’t work out.
 
Your Gemini mate was out of class on a field trip the day the possessiveness gene was distributed, so you never will feel a Gemini is trying to boss you around or tie you down.
 
This relationship has a chance of succeeding because you’ll both stay together because you want to, not because of need or dependency. What more could you want?
 
 
Compatibility: «« Possible
 
If you are Libra, and your mate is Cancer…
 
…you’re taking on Cancer’s whole family as well. If you click with the group, this relationship has a chance.
 
Cancer’s a homebody, rather shy, and most at home in his or her large extended family. If the family is fun and accepting of you, you’ll adore the experience. It’s just that many more people to poll when you’re trying to make a decision. And because you’re such a party animal, even if Cancer’s family is extremely weird, you’ll find them interesting.
 
If Cancer’s family is hostile, though, to you or each other, it could be a problem. First, because Cancer’s so involved with them, your mate might have grown up thinking this is the only way to be. Second, because you hate fighting, you’ll be on edge most of the time.
 
This is no way to run a successful relationship, so the key to love with a Cancer is to check out the family early on. If they’re nice folks, the relationship has a chance despite your different personalities.

…this romance has a great chance of succeeding.
 
Leo’s ego is large, but tact is your middle name. Your Libra qualities will soon have this lion tamed once you realize Leo’s roar is worse than Leo’s bite.
 
Leo may be boisterous and entertaining, but beneath the chest-thumping and noise is a vulnerable, very sensitive pussycat who desperately wants to be stroked. The downside is that a Leo’s need to be liked sometimes leads your mate to tell other people what they want to hear, but not necessarily following through if a specific action is required.
 
Leo also has a tendency to jump in and make all the decisions. The good news is that this complements your own indecisiveness. There are Leos, and then there are Leos. As long as you are confident in YOUR Leo’s basic good sense, the sparks should ignite a long-lasting passion.
 
This relationship has a excellent chance of lasting for the long-term.

If you are Libra, and your mate is Virgo…
 
…this match has problems, but there’s still a chance it will work.
 
You will have to scale back on flirting to avoid morning-after quarrels, but it will be worth it because there is much to be gained from the relationship. Virgo takes a love commitment to heart, and will never do anything to hurt you in that department.
 
Your mate’s attention to detail will improve your life enormously (unless you truly miss the frantic scrambles to find where you put the season tickets to the basketball game and enjoy paying exorbitant no finance charges because you didn’t find the credit card bill on your desk until the day after it was due).
 
Virgo’s attention to detail is also the downside of the relationship. Virgo is a lot more careful with a dollar than you are. This has the potential to cause serious friction once you’re past the honeymoon stage.
 
To give this relationship a chance, keep your money separate except for an amount you pool for common expenses.
 
 
Compatibility: « Possible
 
If you are Libra, and your mate is Scorpio…
 
…be prepared for grand opera. It’s a difficult match because Scorpio has intense and vocal opinions about everything you’re laid-back about. It still has a chance of succeeding, however.
 
Most Scorpios have only two settings on their emotional meters: very high and very, very low. Many of them think possessiveness and jealous rages are acceptable everyday behavior. Since conflict causes a Libra’s insides to knot, you’ll be wise to take your time pursuing this relationship. For a glimpse of your life if the relationship becomes long-term, picture how a couple consisting of a chilled-out surfer (you) and a fiery Italian diva (Scorpio) would react when a tree falls on their garage.
 
However, Scorpio’s emotional make-up gives him or her lots of insight into how human beings work.  Coupled with your attention to detail, this match could make a successful business relationship as well as a romance. A Libra-Scorpio union has the best chance when your mate has matured enough to keep the shadow self in check.

…welcome to Romance City. This match is the best there could possibly be for you.
 
Sagittarius has even more of a laid-back approach to life than you do. You’ll never around to fixing up the house, but neither of you will mind, really.
           
A Sagittarius is the original absent-minded professor. Your mate’s idea of a good time is sitting on a mossy log with a good book (preferably high-minded nonfiction, the more abstract the better) and a box of caramel corn. But there’s passion beneath that calm exterior, and if you’re along for the picnic, count on Doing It under the open sky for dessert. You may not be the first he or she has taken for such a romp, but if you play your cards right, going forward you’ll be the only one.
 
Sagittarius finds your sociability charming, isn’t the least bit threatened by your flirtations, and finds your objectivity positively fascinating.
 
This match is perfect for you. Go for it!

If you are Libra, and your mate is Capricorn…
 
…there are problems rooted in your different approaches, but there’s a chance it will work out, especially if your Capricorn is mature.
 
A young Cap is likely to be a tad judgmental of your carefree, charming ways, because a Capricorn values decisiveness and organization. You mate is likely to be schedule-happy, to think the word “workaholic” describes a virtue, and to have absolutely no patience with discussing emotional issues.
 
That’s just the young ones, though. If your Capricorn is mature, your mate probably has learned the hard way that suffering, while illogical, is very real. This is the person who will win your heart, especially if you’ve grown up a bit yourself.
 
Because of Capricorn’s dependability and know-how, you’ll finally find the structure to give your castles in the air a strong foundation (and you’ll be able to decorate it for peanuts—you both love beautiful things, and a Capricorn knows how to find the best prices on the planet).  That’s what gives this relationship a chance to succeed. A Cap may never write you poems, but the lovemaking will be so intense you won’t even notice!

If you are Libra, and your mate is Aquarius…
 
 …there’s a great chance you’ve met the love of your dreams.
 
However, your image of yourself as the definition of “free spirit” is about to change! Aquarius is the original, adding a strong concern for political freedom to un-orthodoxy. It’s not just about sex, man, it’s about civil rights and transgender rights and the little guy vs. big corporations.
 
While Aquarius will broaden your universe, you’ll contribute an interest in real people as opposed to his or her tendency to speak on behalf of the whole of humanity in general.
 
Your personal styles will be a bit different. You’re a classy if unconventional dresser; Aquarius tend toward the scruffy if not downright eccentric. But because your mate’s friends will include a fair number of avant-garde artists and performers, you’ll find wonderful paintings and ceramics, and the parties will be memorable.
 
This relationship has a very high probability of making you both very happy. Go for it!
 
 
Compatibility: «« Possible
 
If you are Libra, and your mate is Pisces…
 
 …you both will have problems committing at first, but there’s still a chance for love.
 
The main problem is that Pisces is even more indecisive than you are, if such a thing is possible! Worse, Pisces is so insecure that you’re going to have to take the lead in the relationship, and we all know how a Libra hates to make a decision!
 
But this could be the best thing that happened to you. You’ll figure out fairly soon if you love Pisces, or just the idea of love. And you’ll gain confidence as you discover that making a choice (about dinner, a movie, which mechanic to take the car to) does not require all that many smarts.
 
You’ll also be relieved to learn that the consequences of an imperfect choice are less than earthshaking.
 
The best lesson of all: when one of your decisions goes bad, Pisces doesn’t yell at you! This relationship has its challenges, but there’s a chance you’ll make it as a couple if you both are willing to grow.

If you are Scorpio, and your mate is Scorpio…
 
…this match is iffy, but there’s a chance it will succeed if you both can grow past the power struggles and possessiveness that cause such conflict.
 
At least you know what to expect—fireworks aplenty, jealous scenes, the silent treatment for days on end, brooding over insults real and imagined. But hey, you understand this dynamic because it’s how you’ve operated all your life! As long as one of you isn’t in the depths of the depressions you’re prone to, the sexual energy will be out of this world.
 
If the mood swings don’t last too long, a productive way to cope with them would be to work together on something that builds on your strengths. You both enjoy solving puzzles, so a joint research project or a treasure hunt (gold, shipwrecks, a parent who gave you up for adoption…the possibilities are endless).
 
Such joint efforts can greatly enhance any relationship, but are especially important for a Scorpio-Scorpio match because they give you an even chance of succeeding as a couple.

If you are Scorpio, and your mate is Aries…
 
…there’s a chance you’ll find happiness together if you’re prepared for the bumps along the way.
 
You’ll start out blazing with passion, but things may cool when you realize you both want to be in charge. Aries’ rowdy, cheerful nature grates on you; how can anyone be so cheerful when the world, and your own life, is in such a mess?
 
Further, Aries is impulsive, always setting off on some new adventure without making arrangements to have the mail stopped. You value discipline and organization above all else. You have to, when you’re in one of your moods, in order to get through the day. And will flirtatious Aries be there when you need someone?
 
As a no-strings romance of short duration (admittedly more Aries’ style than your own), this pairing will be hot, hot, hot. There’s a chance for a long-term match, too, if you both are willing to give each other a lot of space, time, and understanding.

If you are Scorpio, and your mate is Taurus…
 
…this can be a good match for you.
 
There are times when you may end up feeling like a trophy lover, especially since you’ll have no immediate entree into Taurus’s emotional life. Taurus loves being seen with you, but at the end of the day, refuses to talk about his or her feelings.
 
He or she isn’t being deliberately stubborn; it’s just that the concept is completely alien. What would be the point of going on about something you can’t change? says practical Taurus.
 
This down-to-earth personality is actually a blessing for someone as moody as you. Taurus’s calm presence can be a useful check when you’re down in the dumps; maybe you are over-reacting after all.
 
With your shared love of beautiful things and Taurus’s willingness to pay what it takes to enjoy the good life, life with a Taurus has a good chance to bring you happiness if you refuse to take your differences seriously.

If you are Scorpio, and your mate is Gemini…
 
…there are problems built-in, but there’s a chance that this will work as long as you hold back your possessive streak.
 
Gemini enjoys attention, but not the jealous kind. Your mate intends to play the field until it’s his or her idea to settle down, not yours. If you can’t handle this kind of relationship, you’ll end up hanging around hoping some of Gemini’s youth and vitality will rub off on you. That’s no way to run a love affair!
 
And then there are the parties. You feel you have to go along to assert your claim on Gemini’s heart, but this is only going to annoy your mate and speed up the very thing you’re trying to avoid. For this to work, you will have to do some serious letting go.
 
On the plus side, Gemini loves learning new things, including bedroom technique.  You’ll have much to contribute in this area. Gemini’s gregarious nature pulls you out of the doldrums most of the time, and for that you’re grateful.
 
With the right Gemini, meaning someone who’s finally ready to settle down, it will be worth the struggle and the relationship will have a chance.

Cancer is a homebody, and that’s just fine with you. A stable, nurturing atmosphere will go far to blow away the clouds that haunt you.
 
You’re both well matched sexually, and Cancer is definitely committed to you.
You’re so insecure you may try to dominate the relationship at first; it’s the only way you know to keep yourself from getting hurt. However, Cancer’s possessive nature will defuse this by making you feel cherished and protected.
 
The only down side to the match is confusion. Sometimes Cancer clings like a barnacle, and sometimes he or she turns off the possessiveness and acts as if you’re not there. All this means is that your mate just needs to be alone. Only time and experience will teach you how to respond, but think how much fun the learning curve will be! This is a great match and has every chance of success.

The combination of your intense dark moods and Leo’s search for love on a grand scale is an explosion waiting to happen. You see your mate’s constant search for applause as a character flaw, but really, it’s just who Leo is.
 
Leo is a devoted lover who will never, ever give you reason to be jealous. You will have grand battles—it’s in both your natures—but the fights will be over relatively unimportant things: how reckless Leo is with his money, why you settled for the cheap seats when just a few dollars more would have bought much better ones.
 
The strengths that give your romance a good chance of succeeding are that you both are determined, passionate, and vulnerable. Your self-control is a good balance for Leo’s exuberance and extravagance, and you both secretly enjoy the melodrama of your big fights. There’s a good chance this pairing will work as long as you both enjoy the reconciliation afterwards. The fireworks will only add to the experience!

You’ll both have be careful not to be too critical of each other, but that’s about the only major problem you will have. Money handling, which torpedoes so many relationships, won’t be an issue because you both are frugal. Virgo is as deep and disciplined as you are, and understands your black moods. You read the same books, like the same quiet pleasures, and are enthusiastic about the same forms of sexual expression.
 
In turn, you need to be patient with Virgo’s tendency to declare every symptom evidence of a fatal illness until proven otherwise. Just because your mate is a bit of a hypochondriac doesn’t mean Virgo isn’t really sick now and then.
 
If you make these adjustments, you’ll find that this match has a good chance of ending in true love.

If you are Scorpio, and your mate is Libra…

Libra hates making decisions—about investments, what flavor of ice cream to order, the future of the relationship. For Libra, the fun is in the chase. Once you’re caught, Libra’s like a kitten with its first mouse—not entirely sure what to do with you.
 
Libras are attracted to you because you’re so very different from most of the folks they hang with. Your deep, brooding, sensitive side strikes them as very romantic. Less romantic is your jealousy, which really crimps a young and flirtatious Libra’s style.
 
The secret for success is to go slowly and build trust with one another. If your Libra is young and flighty, you might have to look elsewhere for the solid relationship you need. A relationship with a more mature Libra has a chance, however, because he or she may be more willing to rein in that wandering eye and commit.

If you are Scorpio, and your mate is Sagittarius…
 
…this is a good match for you, although you may be tempted to get a personality transplant. Your own tense insecurities and black moods seem so dreary compared to a Sagittarian’s sunny, laid-back approach to life. Resist the temptation to let your mate try to change you. You can try different ways of coping with your melancholy moods, but you probably won’t ever be able to shake them entirely.
 
Sagittarians have their own liabilities. Their home of choice is the ivory tower. They prefer abstract conversation to action. For a Sag, creating the philosophical underpinnings of a society is a piece of cake. Putting down roots in an actual neighborhood is more of a problem. They’re practically without organizational skills, and in the face of practical problems (a sick computer, a sick kid, a broken shoelace) can’t troubleshoot worth a damn.
 
This relationship has a good chance of working if you accept each other’s liabilities as well as the strengths. If you make a permanent commitment, think what a rich family life your children will have!

The difference is that Capricorn really doesn’t care about your secrets, and you do about his/hers. If you work on drawing out your mate but don’t snoop, this relationship has a very good chance of succeeding.
 
In gratitude, Scorpio will protect you, and this nurturing will keep you from slipping into the deep gloom you’re prone to. Together you make a powerful team, with Capricorn’s grand vision and organizational ability, and your attention to the fine points.

At times, you’ll wonder if your mate has ice water instead of blood. The sex is good, but you never feel like you get closer, emotionally, than arm’s length. And when you try to move things to a more intimate level, suddenly you’re the one with the problem.
 
The reason is that your basic personalities are so different.  Aquarius is looking for a hiking buddy, someone who shares his or her global vision and offbeat sense of adventure. Love is a game to your mate, part of the scenery but nothing to take too seriously.
 
You interpret this as devaluing the intense effort it has been to admit Aquarius into your life. Why doesn’t your mate appreciate the gift you’re offering?

This doesn’t matter much if it’s just the two of you; you’ll bumble along and not even notice you’re bumbling. However, if there are going to be children in the picture, make sure you stay on good terms with somebody (parents, in-laws, friends) who knows how to cook and sew and fix the leaky faucet in the bathtub.

That’s because you are very different in some ways. Your idea of a good time is two parties and a reception every night. Taurus wants to stay home with a loaf of bread, a jug of wine, and you. It’s worth it, though, because Taurus will be a steady companion once he or she begins to trust you.
 
Another difference is how you fight. You do, Taurus won’t. You can be very blunt and outspoken. Taurus doesn’t like conflict one bit and shuts down rather than confront you. And one of the things you might fight about is your flirtations, even the innocent ones. You’ll have to decide whether continuing to sow your wild oats is worth the risk of losing such a gem.
 
Try to work out an arrangement that benefits both of you. You go to the clubs with your own friends, and pamper Taurus’s inner gourmet at quiet little restaurants. The change of pace will do you both good. If you can defuse some of your flash points, this romance has a good chance of lasting.

A Gemini-Sagittarian pairing is filled with common interests. You discuss people, places, things, books, movies, the weather—and most of it is fascinating. In fact, Gemini mates have only one real fault: excessive chattiness. Male or female, they talk WAY too much. If you don’t want to hear about it every day for the next month, don’t tell a Gemini!
 
Your mate also bores easily, so it’s a good thing your interests are vast and your need for security minimal. Both of you like to keep your options open, so you’ll have to tone down your Sagittarian  bossiness. Gemini might be clever at your expense, but your easy-going nature means you’ll overlook it unless it happens too often.

On the other hand, mature Cancers have resolved these issues. They tone down the sympathy. Although they have to give themselves pep talks in the mirror every morning, they manage to do what needs to be done even if it means being the bad guy.

Be especially careful about this, because for all of Leo’s outgoing nature, underneath it all is a tender ego that needs an awful lot of tender loving care.
 
If you get past these minefields, it’s clear sailing all the way. You’re both creative and dynamic. You can agree that whoever has the best skills for a particular job should take the lead, whether it’s buying furniture or refinancing the mortgage. This relationship is the one time that Leo doesn’t always insist on being in charge.
 
This match between two energetic, larger-than-life personalities with passion for life has an excellent chance of becoming a long-lasting romance.
 
 
 
Compatibility: «« Possible
 
If you are Sagittarius, and your mate is Virgo…
 
…this match isn’t without difficulty, but there’s a chance it will work if you go slowly.
 
Don’t mistake a Virgo’s deep inborn shyness for anything else. Virgo sizzles with passion as soon as you have proved that  you can be trusted. This might take some time, because your casual approach to life (and appointments, and commitments) will deeply annoy careful Virgo, who wants every “I” to be dotted and every “t” crossed.
 
Your mate also has a low tolerance for disorder, so your messiness is likely to be a source of discussion more often than you think necessary (which is never!).
 
Your skill is in looking at the Big Picture; Virgo’s a whiz at details. It might help if the two of you agree that you’ll be the one who does the heavy thinking, and Virgo will keep the checkbooks balanced and food on the table. (Just be sure your contribution to the arrangement is large enough so that Virgo doesn’t end up feeling feel resentful.)
 
This plan will go a long way toward ensuring that your romance will have a chance to flourish.

If you are Sagittarius, and your mate is Libra…
 
…go for it. This is one of the best matches you can find. There are some differences, but they are comparatively minor.
 
You think the perfect home is a tent beside a clear mountain lake. Libra lusts for a city loft and a cleaning lady. It’s your basic Country Mouse/City Mouse split—Libra appreciates the great outdoors, but doesn’t want to live there!
 
The rest of the differences are a matter of degree. Your Sagittarian needs are for just enough money to buy just enough house to provide basic shelter.  Libra wants a little more money to add beauty to the nest both inside and out. Tact is one of Libra’s strong virtues, you tend to be blunt. You’ll work through these differences as needed…or not, because they’re so minor when you personal styles are so close in every other area.
 
You’re a fun couple and people love to be around you. The prospects are excellence for a happy and active social life as well as for a great romance!

If you are Sagittarius, and your mate is Scorpio…
 
…the chances for success are good.
 
You’re going to learn to talk about your feelings, whether you want to or not! Scorpio won’t settle for anything less, because digging out secrets is what Scorpio excels at. Better make sure you have something dark to divulge, because brooding Scorpio won’t believe that the “real” you is the same as the cheerful, laid-back view you present to the public.
 
You take love, sex, commitment and betrayal a lot less seriously than does Scorpio. Your optimistic view of the world  couldn’t be more different.
 
So why would a Scorpio even look at you, let alone embark on an affair? Because serious Scorpio finds your happy-go-lucky approach breathtakingly refreshing, that’s why. In turn, you find Scorpio’s self-discipline and organizational ability a big help in sorting out your messy life.
 
If you find real possibilities here, you may want to pay for couples therapy to improve your chances of success from good to great. It will be worth every penny.

If you are Sagittarius, and your mate is Capricorn…
 
…there are differences, but there’s a chance you can overcome them.
 
Capricorn shares your interest in the life of the mind, but with a conservative outlook that your free-wheeling Saggitarian ways may find suffocating.
 
Compared with you, a Capricorn is shirt-and-tie and wing-tip shoes (gender adjustment: business suit with low-heeled pumps). You consider your mate stodgy and way too concerned about what other people think. He or she thinks you’re a complete loose cannon intellectually and socially, and utterly naive about human nature as well.
 
But Capricorn wants to loosen up, and with your example to follow, might come to think of a schedule as a guide rather than a god. As for you, even philosopher types such as you can figure out that a watch alarm is a good way to get to a movie on time. If you can both climb down from your high horses, you’ll have a chance to succeed as a couple, because you may have more in common than you think.

If you are Sagittarius, and your mate is Aquarius…
 
…it’s not just the two of you any more. Aquarius brings the whole messy world along for the ride. This can cause problems for the relationship, but there’s a chance it can work.
 
While your main concern is protecting your personal freedom (including a no-strings love life), Aquarius worries about freedom for the rest of the world: freedom from poverty, repression, famine, terror, illness.
 
At worst, life will revolve around the Cause of the Week, but that’s mainly a problem with the younger ones. Mature Aquarians are comfortable anywhere, with anyone, and will accept you for who you are.
 
The plus side is that you’re both looking for new experiences. Who knows? The combination of your joint pursuit of romantic possibilities gives you a chance at developing genuine love and a permanent bond. If the Archer’s arrow turns out to be Cupid’s, everybody wins!

If you are Sagittarius, and your mate is Pisces…
 
…there’s a chance it will work if you’re ready to settle down.
 
You have a deeply romantic mate who plays for keeps. If you still want to play the field, go easy on the moonlight and roses, but if you’re looking for a life mate, free your Inner Romeo. You cannot possibly be too romantic when wooing a Pisces.
 
Be sure to restrain your Inner Encyclopedia at the same time, however. A Pisces is very sensitive. Your mate might interpret random comments on personal affairs as criticism. The good news is that Pisces is drawn to your energetic embrace of life, which can shake your mate out of the passivity that is so convenient to hide behind.
 
And your mate’s mystical streak fascinates you. This relationship will work best if you share the same deep spiritual convictions. It doesn’t have to be a formal commitment like joining an organized religion, but a shared pool of values goes a long way toward solidifying the romance and giving you a chance at happiness together.

If you are Capricorn, and your mate is Capricorn…
 
…you’re a perfect match—and the chances of success are excellent if you learn to add some fun into your life.
 
You both tend to work hard, and play not nearly enough. You’re such slaves to your PDAs that you even schedule sex. This is okay in the beginning since you both have such hearty appetites. But after a while, the thought of doing it the same way at the same time for the next 40 years loses its charm.
 
The solution is not to change mates. Instead, change what you bring to the relationship. You’re both so serious and focused that you each need an outside activity that’s wildly different from anything you’ve done before—tap dancing, martial arts, model trains, rock climbing, starting a garage band.
 
Hanging out with a group that does not include your spouse will give you plenty to talk about once you’re back home. When you shake up the predictable Capricorn routine, your romance has an excellent chance of being very good indeed.

If you are Capricorn, and your mate is Aries…
 
…there’s a good chance you’ll click as a couple if you can loosen up.
 
You’re fascinated by the adolescent energy and wild sexual performance of your Arien mate, but the lack of personal responsibility sometimes drives you nuts.
 
You value hard work and responsibility. You have strong (some would say rigid) ideas about appropriate dress, appropriate behavior, appropriate gifts—while Aries will do what he or she wants and devil take the consequences. Worse, both the goat and the ram are used to butting heads until they get their own way.
 
How can this possibly work? What will keep Aries from heading for greener pastures?
 
One answer is to have a shared vision, whether it’s a business, a way to raise a family, or a political cause. You’re both leaders; you just need to find that vision and then stake out your territories within it. Working side by side with your mate rather than in a leader-subordinate capacity will give this match a good chance at success.

If you are Capricorn, and your mate is Taurus…
 
…this is one of your perfect matches. You adore Taurus’s solid dependability and energy, and are in awe of his or her artistic talent. In turn, Taurus is charmed by  your loyalty and self-discipline.
 
While you’re both organized and ambitious, Taurus has a special ability to encourage you to extend your reach. Neither one of you is especially vocal about your feelings, but you don’t have to be. There’s so much you just know instinctively about one another.
 
You both want the security that money can bring, and work hard to maximize your investments in home, furnishings, cars—and the relationship.  You’re both a tad stubborn, too, but that’s just another version of the tenacity you admire in one another.
 
Your chances for happiness together are extremely high, and the icing on the cake is that your love will make a difference in the lives of your family and friends as well.

If you are Capricorn, and your mate is Gemini…
 
…the chances for a lasting romance are good, in spite of the fact that you’ll feel like you’re herding cats in a rainstorm much of the time. You are disciplined, dependable, ambitious, quiet in dress and conservative in politics. Gemini works the other side of the street—in an entirely different town.
 
Gemini is interested in anything and everything, but not necessarily in depth. Your mate needs a lot of mental stimulation to keep from feeling bored, so he or she typically flits from one topic (hobby, event, person…) to another.
 
You share an interest in beautiful things and aren’t afraid to spend the money on them, but the difference is that you’re discriminating about what you buy. Gemini seems to shop for the sake of shopping, and carts home as much overpriced junk as true art.
 
The odd thing is, this works! Gemini helps you take yourself less seriously, and because your mate respects your opinion, he or she learns how much fun it is it get below the surface and become an expert in something. This match has a good chance of lasting.

If you are Capricorn, and your mate is Cancer…
 
…the match has problems, but there’s a chance you’ll overcome them.
 
Cancer has a job, not a career, and isn’t especially sympathetic at the hours you put in at work. Worse, Cancer always wants to talk about feelings, and you’re just not that interested in exploring your inner You.
 
However, in your Cancer mate, you have finally found someone who loves you for who you are. Cancer won’t poke fun at your fussy little rituals because they are part of what makes you such a splendid protector of home and hearth. Cancer’s strong intuitiveness complements your logical, by-the-book approach and you both are utterly devoted to family. In turn, you will approach Cancer’s defensive moods by reassuring him or her of your love.
 
Your personalities parallel the stereotype of the traditional family (distant but in-charge father, nurturing, emotional mother), so following this pattern in your relationship is fairly successful. Be prepared to switch gender roles, however, if you happen to be female and your Cancer mate a male.
 
As long as you tone down your bossiness and Cancer learns to stand up to you from time to time, the match has a chance of being happy one.

If you are Capricorn, and your mate is Leo…
 
…the match has a few problems, but still a chance at working out.
 
You’ll have to try different approaches to free Leo’s inhibitions in the bedroom, because the silly sex play you enjoy doesn’t have the depth or grand passion that theatrical Leo needs.
 
Another way you differ is in style. You’re interested in the future, Leo’s grounded in today. You’re the outdoorsy type, more at home in hiking boots than dancing pumps; Leo wants to live in a grand old Queen Anne with turrets and a fireplace in every room instead of the solar home of your dreams.
 
It doesn’t seem as if it could possibly work, but it still can if you’re more outgoing than the average Cap, your shared interest in the good life may be enough to turn Leo from a good friend into a long-term lover. Lesson one is to say out loud the things you admire about your mate, because this is a highly effective balm to Leo’s fragile ego. Then this seemingly doomed match will have a chance for long-term success.

If you are Capricorn, and your mate is Virgo…
 
…it might take a while for the romance to get off the ground, but the chances of success are extremely high.
 
Be prepared to give pep talks to boost your mate’s self-esteem, because Virgos expect a lot from others, and even more from themselves. Since nobody can match Virgo’s idea of perfection (not even Virgo!), your mate can start to feel bad about falling short of his or her impossible goals. Your failures might get pointed out, too, but because you’re a Capricorn, you’ll be able to let Virgo’s excesses roll off your back. You know who you are; you can put up with a little grousing for the sake of attaining your goals.
 
Although you have a lot in common, you’re both somewhat reserved when it comes to displaying affection, whether privately or in public. Once you click, however, you’ll manage to overcome your shyness and the prospects are good for a long and happy relationship.
 
And you love Virgo’s eye for detail! With your strategic vision, your relationship has an excellent chance of succeeding, in business or politics as well as your personal life. Go for it!
 
 
Compatibility: «« Possible
 
If you are Capricorn, and your mate is Libra…
 
…this relationship has its difficulties, but there’s still a chance of succeeding because your mate will never insist on going the one place you don’t want to go: The Talk. Libra can’t bear to discuss emotions; it’s too revealing. You don’t think anything’s truly important if you can’t weigh it, count it, or track it objectively. Of course, sooner or later you’ll have to get over this, but at the start of a relationship, it’s refreshing to focus on something besides The Relationship!
 
And there are plenty of interests you share: good food, good company, good art (although you’re interested in acquiring it and Libra’s more interested in what it all means). As long as you’re willing to meet Libra’s social needs halfway by giving up an evening to the occasional gallery opening, you’ll get along fine!
Libra analyzes major decisions even more carefully than you, sometimes to the point of being unable to come to a conclusion. Libra will find your decisiveness as a welcome relief.
 
Although there are strains because of both of you hide your thoughts and feelings, the relationship has a chance of succeeding because other differences complement one another.

Your reluctance to say out loud what you are feeling inside will dissolve under the warmth of Scorpio’s nurturing love. Scorpio will teach you how to talk about yourself, affirming you every step of the way.
 
You’re both sensual creatures, but your desires are buried under layers and layers of repression. Scorpio, the ultimate detective, knows how to bring these hidden desires into the light, and make you feel all right about it.
 
In turn, your rational approach to life helps your mate get over the brooding moods Scorpios are so prone to. Together you make a powerful team, with your grand vision and organizational ability, and Scorpio’s inborn attention to detail.
 
Oh, you’re a little stubborn, and Scorpio can be a hothead, but you both understand power and ambition, and you both go after what you want until you get it. All in all, the chances are very good your romance will succeed when you’re a committed couple.

If you are Capricorn, and your mate is Sagittarius…
 
…there are some barriers to true love, but there’s a chance you can overcome them.
 
At first, it will seem there are no problems at all. You’ll be swept off your feet by Sagittarius’ no-hold-barred behavior, in the sexual arena as well as in extreme sports of other kinds. You’ll love the intellectual searching, the restless drive to understand philosophies old and new. You’ll even love your mate’s bumbling as he or she tries to find keys, important papers, the car in a parking lot…
 
However, sooner or later your organized Capricorn self will rise above the sexual attraction and begin to find your mate’s Sagittarian fickleness to be adolescent and annoying. It’s one thing to be optimistic, you huff; it’s quite another to avoid looking at the world as it is.
 
However, there’s still a chance that you have chosen wisely and your Sagittarian will be ready to settle down. You’ll have to come to an agreement about how to handle the messes (Sags are notoriously disorganized) but hey, you were thinking about hiring a cleaning service anyway, weren’t you?

If you are Capricorn, and your mate is Aquarius…
 
…there’s a good chance this union will succeed, despite the fact that you’ll sometimes wonder if Aquarius knows you’re there.
 
Your mate sometimes can be so focused on the big picture—fixing massive social issues, loving humanity in all its wonderful diversity—that he or she may dismiss your everyday concerns as unworthy of affirmation. And they’re not much for observing traditions, whether in family or society, if they don’t see these customs as serving a useful purpose. This is very annoying to an upright Capricorn such as yourself.
 
On the other hand, there’s nobody like an Aquarius to put you in touch with your Better Self. Life for much of the world’s people is a struggle for clean drinking water and safety from rogue militias. The sooner you break out of the ordered world you’ve constructed for yourself, the better off you—and the world—will be.
 
Your self-discipline can help Aquarius learn that the secret of life is loving both the huddled masses AND the folks across the street with the bad haircuts and casual attitude toward lawn care. If there is some part of Aquarius’ vision that you can share, so much the better, because a shared vision gives you both a good chance for a shared future.

You’ll feel at sea with this fishy until you discover Pisces has no clue about how the world really works. Upfront and compassionate, your mate is an easy mark for cons of all sorts. As a result, he or she has been taken for a ride so many times that standing still is frightening.
 
The extreme method of dealing with this is to escape: through drugs, alcohol, or depression. Your love won’t be enough to conquer a Pisces who is this far gone,  but Pisces with non-clinical symptoms will respond warmly to your steadfast devotion and begin to let go of past hurts.
 
You will be glad you persevered when you realize how sincerely Pisces has your best interests at heart. If you get this far, there’s a chance that your mate’s imagination will open your carefully ordered life to new possibilities, in and out of the bedroom.

However, if you can learn to switch gears after hours to focus on such mundane matters as whose turn it is to do the dishes and your mate’s bad day at the office, you’ll find Aries a cheerful companion.
 
You both like to be in charge, but that’s easy to fix since you both work in such different spheres. And neither is possessive, so your late nights usually won’t cause problems at home as long as you keep the lines of communication open.
 
Aries is more tied to schedules and creature comforts than you are. It will be best if you can accept this as a personality difference, not a political statement. If you can unbend enough, and Aries can become more of a world citizen, there’s a chance that you will enjoy that comfy sofa together for a long time!

If you are Aquarius, and your mate is Taurus…
 
… there’s a chance it will work, but the relationship has its challenges. For starters, your mate is much more interested than you are in playing for keeps. In fact, Taurus doesn’t consider love something to be played at, period. While you are a dabbler interested in tasting every pleasure life sends your way, Taurus is looking for a permanent companion. You want to save the whole human family, but the only family Taurus is interested in is the one the two of you could create.
 
Second, you have a wide circle of acquaintances, and it’s important to you to connect often with them. You’re happiest when you’re working a room. Taurus, on the other hand, is a homebody who has little use for receptions unless there’s a wedding involved.
 
To make this relationship work, you’ll have to accept that your mate’s personality will always be less outgoing than yours. If you have sown enough wild oats and are ready to settle down, you might find a way to enjoy the quiet, one-on-one events Taurus thrives on. In turn, your mate will be more willing to accompany you to those intimate parties for 500 that mean so much for you. This will give your relationship a chance to blossom into a serious romance.

You’re both opinionated but not dogmatic, so you will have energetic discussions but they won’t collapse into name-calling if you disagree on approaches or even underlying philosophies. This is very important, especially since you feel so passionately about core issues of politics and religious belief.

If you are Aquarius, and your mate is Cancer…
 
…there’s a good chance for romance here, although it’s possible that one day you’ll wake up and feel as if you’re treading water in a sea of emotion.
 
That’s because Cancer is all about intimacy, sensitivity, and security. It’s not that you’re a stranger to emotion, but yours is focused outward. In the face of the rotten social problems you deal with every day, it’s hard to take Cancer’s concerns as anything but evidence of self-absorption. When you try to talk about this, however, it often comes out as sarcasm, which does not help the situation one bit!
 
Your detachment is necessary to keep from being overwhelmed with the human suffering you see on a global scale, but when you don’t switch gears at home, it keeps you from responding to legitimate human needs for affirmation.
 
If you can loosen up some, Cancer won’t feel so frantic about attracting your attention. That will give you a good chance of becoming the loving couple you know you can be!

You both tend to think you have all the answers, but you are answering questions from different universes. Your mission is saving the world; Leo’s is entertaining it. Hey, life’s hard. People need both entertainment and someone to stand up for their rights; otherwise, silly television shows wouldn’t be so popular in desperately poor countries!

Virgo likes quiet evenings at home; you like rallies, parades, receptions. At parties, Virgo nurses a drink in the corner; you work the room like a politician the week before an election.
 
The act is, you each have strengths that compensate for the other’s weaknesses. You need a Virgo in your life, because you’re great at networking but weak on the practical details of getting from Point A to Point C. You’re the potter, Virgo is the marketing genius who gets the upscale gift shops and catalogues to carry your stuff.
 
However, both of you have the ability to sit down and talk things out, which is one of the most important things in any relationship.

You will talk all night when you first meet, but Libra’s more interested in a nesting commitment than you. On the other hand, Libra will strongly encourage you to apply your theories of life to actual human beings as opposed to humanity in general. It’s where the rubber meets the road, and will be a reality test for whether your social commitment is genuine or a facade. How you feel about this involuntary self-examination (annoyed? chagrined? intrigued?) is a good indication about whether you should make the relationship permanent.
 
If you’re a guy, a female Libra may attempt to upgrade your appearance. This might cause some tension if you’re wedded to proclaiming your beliefs via hairstyle and clothing. A male Libra rarely worries about a female Aquarian’s clothes, most of the time being more interested in what his partner is not wearing. When all is said and done, this match is practically perfect, so go for it!

You’re looking for someone who shares your global vision and offbeat sense of adventure, who can play the love game without taking it too seriously. Scorpio’s too tormented and possessive for a light-hearted approach to love. Scorpio’s willing to trek to Nepal with you, but if he or she twists an ankle and has to stay in base camp, you’re expected to keep your hands to yourself no matter how attractive the guide.
 
On the bright side, Scorpio’s passion means your  cool detachment will melt in the face of your mate’s intense love-making. You can help this along by romantic gestures, the cornier the better. Make the effort not to withdraw when there are quarrels. This will assure your mate that your love will survive the changeable Scorpio moods.
 
When you get used to the fireworks, and Scorpio realizes that your flirtations don’t mean anything, really, this match has a chance to succeed. Then it’s time for the other kind of fireworks—the ones that take place in your tent.

One of you had better have a good job, because you’ll be eating out, and entertaining out, most of your lives. This gets to be expensive.

Because people do not fit carefully into little boxes, you and Capricorn actually have a lot in common that could make your relationship work very well. True, Capricorn is a bit more into the status thing than you’re comfortable with, and your disorganization annoys your mate deeply. Capricorn’s view of the world is more pessimistic than yours. Capricorn thinks things are going to hell in a hand basket. You think that already happened (last week, last Election Day, when Cain killed Abel…) and things can only improve.
 
On the other hand, you both have strong, determined wills. Aquarius directs energy outward, you direct yours towards jobs and family. You both take a long time to get around expressing your emotions, so there won’t be much pressure to commit prematurely. There might be a lot of Point-Counterpoint arguments along the way, but the match has a good chance of surviving them because you will have such a good time trying to persuade the other.

At first Pisces comes across as dependent and demanding, not to mention totally naive about life. That’s because a Pisces dreams big and feels big, but doesn’t know when to turn it off. The result is that a Pisces worries big, too. Further, Pisces’ insecurities may lead to demands to prove your love. You’re likely to shut down when that happens, sending Pisces into a panic spiral, which will only drive you further away.
 
That said, the root of the problem is actually what you have in common— a different way of expressing the same giant imagination that fires your idealism. While you channel your energy into social causes, Pisces is more inclined towards artistic endeavors. Sometimes it seems as if the more unrealistic your mate’s goals are, the more he or she clings to them.
 
And you know what? Sometimes the Pisces achieve their goals, sometimes they don’t, but if they don’t try, for sure they won’t win. Surely a closet hippie like yourself can find common ground here and give this good match a chance to blossom into true love!

Zodiac Sign Compatibility

 Pisces...

Compatibility: ««« Good
 
If you are Pisces, and your mate is Pisces…
 
… the relationship could go either way, but there’s an even chance it will turn into a romantic, sensual love affair.
 
It’s true that each of you is somewhat moody, but that’s because you’re so sensitive. You take everything to heart. However, no one understands this better than your Pisces mate.
 
You share the same weaknesses, too, including an astounding lack of practical and organizational skills. The stars were not kind to you in this regard. It doesn’t really matter as long as it’s just the two of you, but a Pisces-Pisces match can be a disaster when running a household, a business, or a family. Nobody will have a clue where  to find the water shut-off valve when the washing machine springs a leak!
 
The good news is that most of the time you can hire someone to make up the difference (handyman, an accountant, a lawn and garden service). This match has a chance of succeeding, so give it a solid try.
 

Zodiac Sign Compatibility
 
Compatibility: ««« Good
 
If you are Pisces, and your mate is Aries…
 
…this match has a good chance of providing you with the love of your life.
 
Aries is outgoing where you are shy, energetic where you are passive, and has the know-how to make your dreams come true. You both share an interest in the arts, and Aries is happy to make the decisions you find so difficult.
 
You’ll delight your mate with your sensitivity to his or her needs. The downside is that you shouldn’t expect the same kind of response to your needs, because Aries has a hard time empathizing with other people’s needs. Aries also is fairly outspoken and expresses opinions forcefully. This can devastate an overly sensitive Pisces like yourself.
 
However once you get used to each other, you’ll see that this match of complementary strengths and weaknesses makes you a powerful couple. The key is for you both to focus on solving problems instead of your differences in approach. Finding a middle ground will help you catch your mate’s enthusiasm and give him or her time to soften his approach towards you. Under these conditions, the chances are good that this romance will blossom.

If you are Pisces, and your mate is Taurus…
 
…there’s a good chance this match will succeed.
 
You’ll think you’ve met a god, because Taurus operates with authority. Your mate knows how to buy a car and not get ripped off. Taurus not only has a job, he or she has an actual career path planned out—and it’s working like it’s supposed to. Taurus understands budgets!
 
True, Taurus’s down-to-earth practicality means he or she isn’t nearly as mystical as you are, but this difference is a source of fascination rather than conflict. And sometimes your mate’s preoccupation with career advancement and other practical aspects of life can make Taurus seem impossibly shallow.
 
But you share a love for home and family, the arts, and security (financial for Taurus, emotional for Pisces). You both are sensual and creative. Taking all of these factors into account,  the long-term prospects are good for this relationship to last.
 
 
Compatibility: «« Possible
 
If you are Pisces, and your mate is Gemini…
 
…you’ve fallen in love with someone born under another sensitive sign. This relationship could go either way, but there’s a chance you can make it work.
 
You’ll have to cut a Gemini some slack, because he or she is naturally high-spirited. You might interpret Gemini’s teasing as a put-down, when actually it’s his or her way of expressing affection.
 
You’ll also have to rein in your possessive streak, because Gemini needs freedom, especially at the start of a relationship. Any premature attempts to solidify the bond will spook Gemini. You need to realize that friends acquired before you arrived on the scene are still important to your mate.
 
On the other hand, a Gemini shares your interest in the arts and brings stability to your life, both financially and emotionally. A Gemini who is truly in love with you will enrich your life by helping you make sense of the outer world and helping your dreams come true.
 
This relationship has a chance of working if you give each other a fair chance.
 
 
Compatibility: ««««« Extremely good!
 
If you are Pisces, and your mate is Cancer…
 
…this is as good as it can possibly get.
 
You are both equally sensitive, sensual, and focused on family values. Furthermore, Cancer has a practical streak that permits him or her to initiate projects rather than just thinking about them. This will be a great help in turning some of your dreams into reality, especially those artistic projects that mean so much to you.
 
Cancer’s devotion will help you overcome your dark, escapist side, and lift your spirits on gloomy days. Think moonlight cruises, flowers in winter, breakfast in bed with champagne and strawberries. 
 
The downside is a tendency to put off making difficult decisions, so think twice about introducing children into this mix unless you have someone else on the scene (mother-in-law, devoted auntie) who will make sure everybody keeps all the doctor appointments. But if it’s just going to be the two of you, all signs point to this pairing as a winning combination that definitely should be pursued.
 
 
Compatibility: « Possible
 
If you are Pisces, and your mate is Leo…
 
…this relationship will run into trouble, but there’s a chance you can make it work.
 
The problems start when your sheltered, mystical streak runs smack dab into Leo’s earthy exuberance. You’ll feel overwhelmed at first, but if you learn to handle the noise, you’re in for a wild ride with Leo.
 
You’ll be puzzled at first by Leo’s need for applause, but true love will eventually convince you that this a virtue rather than a selfish bid for attention. It’s just who Leo is. Being comfortable in the spotlight makes him or her a born leader who can make good things happen, both in the larger world as well as in your own relationship.
 
In turn, you can help nurse Leo’s large ego by putting your defeats into perspective.
 
Rush things and this relationship will fall apart, but if you give this match time to blossom on its own, without shrinking from the noise, there’s an even chance you will have found a true mate.
 
 
Compatibility: «« Possible
 
If you are Pisces, and your mate is Virgo…
 
…it won’t be the easiest match, but you have a chance at happiness together.
 
Virgo can be a true helpmate, because one of your mate’s main strengths is solving problems. Virgo understands the practical side of how the world works, and intuitively knows what steps are necessary to fix what’s wrong.
 
You, on the other hand, have a sensitive nature and a powerful imagination that grows mole hills into mountains before you realize it. You get too involved in what’s wrong to focus on figuring out what to do about it. It doesn’t have to be this way, and Virgo’s steady practicality can help you get a better handle on the things that bother you.
 
It won’t be a one-way street, either. It’s easy for a Virgo to be entirely too logical and lose sight of the fact that most people in the world are wired differently!
 
As long as you don’t overwhelm Virgo with your inner drama and overlook the occasional know-it-all attitude, this relationship has a chance of turning into a lovely romance.
 
Compatibility: «« Possible
 
If you are Pisces, and your mate is Libra…
 
…money matters will be one of your main differences, but there’s still a chance you can succeed as a couple.
 
Libra spends money in ways you consider absolutely reckless. Libra thinks you’re the sort of person who gives tightwads a bad name! If you can get past that, you’ll have a fair chance at a great love life despite the fact that you both are indecisive commitment-phobes! On the plus side, you’re both interested in many of the same things, including decorating a beautiful home that can be a retreat from the madness of the outside world.
 
Having been hurt so many times before, you’ll wait for Libra to take the lead in almost every area. Libra hates making decisions, but eventually will start to like the idea that you look up to him or her. And when one of Libra’s decisions goes bad (as everybody’s does sooner or later), the relationship will be cemented when Libra realizes you won’t play the blame game.
 
This relationship has a lot going for it despite your money differences, so there’s a chance it will work out for you.
 
 
 
Compatibility: ««««« Extremely good!
 
If you are Pisces, and your mate is Scorpio…
 
…the match has all the potential for a world-class romance, because a Scorpio is one of the very best matches a Pisces can make.
 
Scorpio’s exes complain about possessiveness, but you find it reassuring. The protection of someone strong and powerful who loves you finally gives you the security you need to grow. You admire, and learn from, Scorpio’s attention to detail, and you find being around someone so disciplined actually strengthens your own will-power.
 
You pretend to be insulted when Scorpio has a hissy over your other friends, but deep down, you feel these jealous dust-ups are confirmations of love.
 
Scorpio’s strength and passion sweeps you off your feet time and again. In turn, your no-barriers lovemaking helps moody Scorpio keep the dogs of depression in the kennel.
 
This relationship is a win-win for everybody and one of the top matches for both signs. You’ll never forgive yourself for not pursuing this romance!
 
 
 
Compatibility: «« Possible
 
If you are Pisces, and your mate is Sagittarius…
 
…there’s a chance it will work in spite of the fact that your mate likes to keep his or her options open.
 
You play for keeps, Sagittarius plays the field. How can this possibly work? For starters, you both laugh at the same things and are sexually compatible. You’re fascinated by Sagittarius’s full participation in life and your mate’s example spurs you to try new things.
 
The relationship has its drawbacks, but two seekers such as yourself will find a common bond by sharing the same deep spiritual convictions. Being the more mystical mate, you’ll probably have to be the one to introduce this concept. You don’t have to make a formal commitment such as joining an organized religion (even an alternative organized religion!) but a shared pool of values will go a long way toward grounding the differences in your personalities.
 
As long as your mate reins in the Saggitarian impulse to make snide comments, and you learn to tune out the odd remark that slips out anyway, this relationship has a chance of working.
 
 
Compatibility: «« Possible
 
If you are Pisces, and your mate is Capricorn…
 
…there’s a chance it will work out if you can add some spice.
 
Accustomed as you are to being hurt, you’ll find Capricorn’s steadfast love a little boring at first. Where are the scenes, the accusations, the drama? It might take a while, but sooner or later you’ll discover that peace is more than the absence of war!
 
Capricorn knows how to get things done, and that includes helping you bring your dreams to reality. You will learn new words in this relationship: ambition (you have none, Capricorn has an oversupply), organization, responsibility. But you’ll also learn “repression.” Capricorn is neither skilled in discussing feelings, nor eager to learn how, and this means he or she suffers in silence.
 
If you are patient and don’t push until Capricorn feels utterly comfortable with you, you’ll be able to Capricorn’s overly structured life to new possibilities, in and out of the bedroom. This will improve your chance of succeeding as a couple.

If you are Pisces, and your mate is Aquarius…
 
… you have a good chance at happiness. Your mate’s cool facade may be hard to crack, but it’s just a different way of expressing the same oversized imagination that fuels your dreams.
 
You channel your energy toward the arts, Aquarius’s life revolves around social causes. Different kinds of energy are required to work in these diverse areas, so unwinding at the end of the day will take very different forms for each of you.
 
You cope by letting your emotions out over drinks and dinner. Aquarius copes by forgetting completely about work. Your mate doesn’t want to think about it or talk about it. Sometimes this is okay, but it can be bad news if your mate starts to do this with other difficult things in life. Because you are comfortable with the emotional side of life, you’ll be able to draw your overly cerebral mate back to the everyday world.
 
It can be the start of something big as long as you aren’t too needy yourself (it’s hard to compete with a Third World drought or genocide). Between Aquarius’s interest in the larger world, and your insight into the examined life, the chances are good the two of you will become be a powerful pair.
