Find Out Your Least-Compatible Matches According to the Zodiac
If it feels like you've been looking for love in all the wrong places, that might actually be true — well, at least according to your zodiac sign. Even if you're not very into astrology, knowing the basic physical and emotional traits of your sign and others can be key in being able to recognize people you're just not compatible with, which can then help you make better decisions and save you heartache along the way.
According to Compatible Astrology and Susan Miller, founder of Astrology Zone and an accredited astrologer by the International Society for Astrological Research, these are the least-compatible zodiac signs. And Miller advises that even though our sun signs may provide pivotal clues, we're always welcome to follow our hearts. "The choice of whether to take advantage of an opportunity or let it go will always be up to you," she stated on her website. Sound advice when searching for your soulmate!
Aries (March 21-April 19)
According to Miller's website, "Aries are afraid of being hemmed-in and losing their freedom," so avoid the more emotionally needy Cancer, whose sensitivity and natural moodiness will feel a little stifling. And don't be fooled by Cancers who say their initial attraction to you stems from your strong will, because they *might* quickly become irritated by that very same trait, calling you cold and heartless.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Taurus may initially be attracted to Leo for their loyalty, but strong bulls would be wise to side step the lion since their constant need for approval and love of attention might put a damper on the relationship. "You both are fixed in your opinions and are not likely to bend," Miller explained on her website, which means there may be very few moments of peace.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Miller believes Gemini and Pisces are on the opposite ends of the scale when it comes to relationships. Her research shows that Geminis rely on logic and lightheartedness when looking for love, which "will never satisfy Pisces, who want to be understood and loved, physically and spiritually, all the way down to their very core," she wrote. This could make Gemini feel smothered, so it may be best to avoid this matchup altogether.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
As persistent homebodies, Cancers will have trouble connecting with Libra's life-of-the-party mentality, according to Compatible Astrology. Libras are worldly and sophisticated, traits that will often attract you, but they don't think much about planning for the future. And since security and fiscal responsibility are always in your purview, this pairing might not be the best fit.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Leos and Scorpios who pair up may be playing with fire, Miller warned: "Stubbornness on both sides will be the biggest danger." And while this mulish behavior may eventually lead to hot makeup sex, you'll ultimately have to ask yourself if explosive passion is worth the constant emotional and physical damage.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
According to Compatible Astrology, Virgo should avoid Sagittarius at all costs. Although you are both independent and analytical in nature, Virgos can be more reserved and pessimistic while Sagittarius are outgoing and optimistic, leaving the two of you at odds when it comes to social interactions. After the initial attraction wears off, you will likely view your partner's interactions as flighty, erratic, irresponsible, and ill-timed — a detriment when it comes to real-world worries like finances.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Libra's least-compatible companion is Capricorn. "You are far more lighthearted than your Goat, who is all too serious most of the time," Miller explained. A Libra's desire for a life that balances intimacy and intellect will be lost on a Capricorn, whose ambition and career focus often cloud their ability to let loose, particularly in the bedroom.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You may find yourself attracted to an Aquarius's wit and ability to plan ahead — after all, routine and stability are important to you — but their aloofness and sometimes limited emotionality may ultimately sink this relationship. "Both of you are fixed signs, so you have strong opinions — you'll both be digging in your heels when differences surface between you," Miller warned. Avoid the heartache that an Aquarian will inevitably bring.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Findings at Compatible Astrology note that Sagittarius might find Pisces too sensitive of a match to make things work. Your bold, honest, and blunt style may be seen as bullying by the more gentile Pisces, who likes to swim around tough issues by couching them in polite terms. Run from this partnership, especially if talking about feelings exasperates you.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
According to Miller, Capricorn and Aries aren't a sound love match. She believes that since both signs are driven by ambition, the pairing would fare better as workplace partnership. Even still, be mindful that your ambition stems from being a team player and is often grounded in reality, while Aries wants to work independently and is ruled by idealism.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Miller notes that an Aquarius and Taurus partnership may be doomed from the start. Though attractive for their sensuality and reliability, bulls may prove too conservative for your tastes. "Taurus are also prone to being possessive, something you don't appreciate because you value your space," she explained. This could prove detrimental when it comes to social endeavors since you have wanderlust while Taurus prefers familiar creature comforts.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Pisces should be careful when engaging with Libra. According to Compatible Astrology, Libras are all about balancing fairness with idealism, while your moral compass is more compassionate and accommodating to life's vagaries. In other words, this head vs. heart match will clash in both the boardroom and the bedroom.
