Are you compatible?

Our zodiac signs play a significant role in the way we behave in our relationships and who we get attracted to.

The energetic and enthusiastic fire signs complement the changing and versatile characteristics of the air signs.

Fire signs
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius

A fire sign gets along very well with air signs. The energetic and enthusiastic fire signs complement the changing and versatile characteristics of the air signs. But in order to sustain their relationship, both the signs need to put in a lot of efforts. On the other hand,  a fire sign and water sign can never get along very well.

This is because water signs are way too emotional for the fire signs to deal with. The fire signs’ enthusiasm could be overwhelming for water signs. The connection of a fire sign with a fellow fire sign tends to nurture similar energy but often it is difficult to reach a compromise  when it comes to their ego.

Air signs
Aquarius, Gemini, Libra

Those who belong to the air sign group have outstanding communication skills. Due to this air signs are compatible with fellow air signs, fire signs as well as water signs. But they don’t share the same bonding with the earth signs. The connection between two individuals under the same air signs could seem impractical but they consider each other intellectually stimulating. The combination of an earth sign and air sign can only work if both of them are ready to stay together as a team. If the partner with the air sign starts criticising their partner a lot, they might be let down.

Earth signs
Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

All the zodiac signs under the element of earth are  highly compatible with fellow earth signs and tend to appreciate each other’s need for stability and find comfort in each other. This combination is very soothing and promotes inner peace. Likewise, they are also well-matched with water signs. The stable and dependable traits of the earth sign balance the sensitive and emotional traits of the water signs. In return, water sign soothes and replenishes the earth. The traits of earth signs are difficult to deal with for the enthusiastic signs under the fire element. Therefore, these two are never a suitable match for each other.

Water signs
Scorpio, Pisces, Cancer

Water signs are not compatible with fire signs. They will agree to disagree and will never reconcile. Water tends to share a pleasant relationship with fellow earth signs, there is a great mix of energies that will promote a healthy and balanced relationship. Water likes to flow gently on its own time and rhythm, while air wants to make movements and stir things up. The individuals under these two signs may end up disliking each other. Two individuals under the same water signs will be sensitive to each other’s needs, but it will be very difficult for them to deal with  emotional turmoil of each other.
Having said all this, I would like to say that just because the two sun signs are not compatible,  doesn’t mean that the  relationship will not be successful. It just takes a positive outlook and some extra efforts on the part of the two individuals to ensure their relationship sails through troubled waters.
