Hey Aquarius, These Are Your Best — and Worst — Love Matches

Hey Aquarius, are you looking for your romantic partner in crime? And did you know that you can use astrology as a roadmap for basic compatibility?

It’s true! By looking at the element (earth, air, fire, or water) and quality (cardinal, fixed, or mutable) of your signs, you could get a glimpse of how you two will work together as a couple.

Air signs (that’s you!) are usually the most compatible with fire signs and other air signs. Fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius) are known for their passion and impulsivity. They’re brave, bold, adventuring, and a little flashy. Air signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius) are known for their intellect and curiosity. They never stop thinking, and will bounce from one idea to the next.

In addition, fixed signs (you again!) work best with cardinal or mutable signs. Cardinal signs tend to be leaders and big idea people, and mutable signs are known for their flexibility. It’s not impossible for two fixed signs to make a good match, but since you’re both known for your digging your heels into the ground, that could cause some issues in a relationship.

So do you think you and your crush are written in the stars? Read on to find out!

Best: Aries

With Aries, a cardinal fire sign, you’ll never see a dull moment. You’re supportive of each other, have energy to spare, and are always up for an adventure.

Best: Gemini

With Gemini, a mutable air sign, your relationships is sure to be the envy of others in your social circle. And that circle will be wide because you’re both very social creatures. You won’t have to deal with pettiness or jealousy, and the sexual chemistry should be off the charts.

Best: Libra

With Libra, a cardinal air sign, your ideals about individuality, freedom, and the betterment of society may have found their match. You’re well suited to each other socially, and their diplomacy will help balance your stubborn streak.

Best: Sagittarius

With Sagittarius, a mutable fire sign, you’ll find a cheerful and energetic partner. You’ll both thrive on intellectual conversations and seeking out new experiences. Variety and unpredictability make you tick, and will keep things from going stale.

Worst: Taurus

With Taurus, a fixed earth sign, you’ll feel like you’re suffocating. They won’t find the emotional stability they crave, and you’ll feel too mired down in their need for vulnerability and connection. You’ll pull away pretty quickly.

Worst: Cancer

Similarly, with Cancer, a cardinal water sign, you’ll be left with a partner who wishes you were built for more emotional vulnerability. They’re concerned with building a home, but you’re more concerned with bettering the world. While both admirable, these aren’t compatible viewpoints.

Worst: Virgo

With Virgo, a mutable earth sign, you might get along well because you can keep each other mentally stimulated. But Virgo needs things defined, and they’ll be looking to categorize you in order to make sense of you. Which will, ultimately, make your skin crawl.

Worst: Scorpio

With Scorpio, a fixed water sign, you’ll both feel very strongly about what life should be. And unfortunately, those two ideals won’t match up. Scorpio wants an emotionally intense, one-on-one connection that will make you uncomfortable. Jealousy will become an issue.
