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

Hey Aries, are you looking for your ride or die? Your partner in crime? Someone who can finally keep up?

And perhaps more importantly, did you know you could use astrology as a sort of cheat sheet to romantic 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.

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

In addition, cardinal signs (you again!) work best with mutable or fixed signs. Mutable signs are adaptable to change, and fixed signs are stabilizing influences. It’s not impossible for two cardinal signs to make a good match, but they can butt heads against each other. Since these signs are known for their visionary and leadership qualities, a cardinal couple could have some serious control issues.

So, are you and your crush written in the stars? Let’s find out!

Best: Gemini

With Gemini, a mutable air sign, you’ll find a playful partner who’ll go toe-to-toe with you in the energy department. And Gemini’s flexibility could balance out your more, ahem, controlling ways.

Best: Leo

With Leo, a fixed fire sign, you’ll find yourself in a partnership with a lot in common. You’re both brave, bold, and passionate. You’ll have a lot of fun in and out of the bedroom, and life could be filled with adventure.

Best: Sagittarius

With Sagittarius, a mutable fire sign, you’ll find a fun-loving partner who shares your need for brutal honesty but also playfulness and excitement. Bonus: they’ll most likely let you take the lead most of the time, which suits you just fine.

Best: Aquarius

With Aquarius, a fixed air 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.

Worst: Taurus

With Taurus, a fixed earth sign, your desire for action is tempered by their stubborn ways. When the bull and the ram face-off, someone’s likely to get stabbed by those horns.

Worst: Cancer

With Cancer, a cardinal water sign, your need for travel and exploration goes up against their melancholy and homebody tendencies. They’re too sensitive for you, and you’re too direct for them.

Worst: Virgo

With Virgo, a mutable earth sign, your desire for momentum and boldness is stifled by their cautious need to analyze every decision. They’ll think you’re too much of a risk, and your rash decision-making will make them uncomfortable. And you’ll be frustrated that they won’t jump when you jump.

Worst: Capricorn

With Capricorn, a cardinal earth sign, you’ll always be fighting over who leads in the relationship. They’re the consummate grownup who thinks you’re impulsive and reckless; you’ll feel like they’re missing out on life if they can’t take off after the next adventure or opportunity. This will cause some struggles.
