Here’s an overview of the different areas of compatibility between zodiac signs:

Overall Compatibility:

  • Best matches tend to be between signs of the same element or those whose elements complement each other (e.g. water nourishes earth)
  • Air and fire signs tend to have an innate understanding, as do water and earth signs
  • Signs that square each other often clash

Love Compatibility:

  • Signs that Sextile or Trine tend to flow well emotionally
  • Water and earth signs seek security, while fire and air signs need freedom
  • Venus signs indicate how people love and want to be loved

Sexual Compatibility:

  • Mars signs indicate sexual style and chemistry
  • Fire and air feeds passion; earth and water seek sensuality
  • Adventurousness, intimacy needs, energy levels must align

Emotional Compatibility:

  • Moon signs dictate emotional needs
  • Water signs crave depth, earth signs seek stability, air signs want space, fire signs desire inspiration
  • Ability to nurture and be nurtured must align

Communication Compatibility:

  • Mercury signs influence communication styles
  • Air signs want an intellectual equal, water and earth signs seek understanding
  • Being too similar or different here can cause conflict

Trust Compatibility:

  • Signs that oppose can activate wounds, triggering projections
  • Squaring signs often clash values, eroding trust over time
  • Trines indicate an innate sense of trust and harmony

Values Compatibility:

  • Sun signs give insight into core values
  • Shared outlook smooths relationships between romantic partners and friends
  • Clashing priorities lead to conflicts and misunderstandings

In astrology, some signs are seen as more compatible based on the elemental qualities (fire, earth, air, water) associated with each sign. Here’s a quick overview:

Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) tend to be most compatible with air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) because air feeds fire. Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) are usually compatible with water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) because water nourishes earth.

In addition:

  • Fire signs may clash with earth signs due to their contrasting impulsive vs. grounded natures
  • Water and air signs understand each other intellectually, but may struggle emotionally
  • Same-element signs often share great chemistry, but may fail to balance each other

Beyond the elements, the modes (cardinal, fixed or mutable) and the qualities (masculine/assertive or feminine/receptive) also impact compatibility. Compatible signs generally have good chemistry, strong communication, aligned values and lifestyles, and a healthy dynamic of giving and receiving.
