Sun Sign Love

Two people coming together are a complex mix of astrological energies based on the entire birth chart. But the Sun sign -- your Zodiac sign -- is a key to your basic nature. So checking compatibility between Suns is a good starting point.

Some Sun sign combinations are naturally harmonious. A traditional rule is that there's an easy rapport between Sun signs of the same element.

The four elements are Fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius); Earth (Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo); Air (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini) and Water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces).

There are also natural love connections between Sun signs of harmonious elements. These are fire-air and earth-water.

Zodiac Love

Aries is aroused around by other Fire signs (Leo and Sagittarius.) If egos don't go supernova, the Aries-Leo match grows into mutual adoration. The Aries-Sadge couple hits the ground running and thrives with common goals. Aries stays inspired with the uplifting currents of air signs (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini).

Taurus takes it slow and easy with other Earth signs Capricorn and Virgo. But Capricorn would be wise not to get bossy with the Bull. Same goes for Virgo with the tendency to critique. Taurus feels at home with water signs, which help to bring out the Bull's cuddly nature. Other fixed signs (Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) attract Taurus, and can lead to pairings of love and "divine" struggle together.

Gemini finds the mental stimulation it craves from other Air signs Libra and Aquarius. The fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) keep Gemini from becoming bored, and promise a lifetime of spontaneity.

Cancer feels emotionally understood with the other Water signs Scorpio and Pisces. Earth signs have the slower rhythm that appeals to Cancer, and are often just as security-oriented.

Leo rises to the challenge of burning with other Fire signs Aries and Sagittarius. But the Leo pride could be deflated if Aries loses interest and Sadge takes a too casual approach. A Leo-Aquarius match makes sense and throws the door wide to a lifetime of growth. Leo-Taurus has friction, but I've seen this combo thrive -- there is shared sensuality and enjoyment of the finer things.

Virgo's focus is on devotion and daily rhythm, and other Earth signs Capricorn and Taurus support their earnest traits. Virgo doesn't mind playing helpmate to Capricorn, or building beauty alongside Taurus. But Virgo needs to keep from being weighted down, a danger of being with another earth sign. The Virgo-Cancer combo brings two worriers together, but both cherish the little habits that come with life together. Many a Virgo ends up with Pisces for a match that draws them into the emotional depths.

Libra veers toward other bright minds like Gemini and Aquarius. But Libra may think Gemini a flibbertygibbet, and Aquarius too rigid in their own views. When a Libra meets the other cardinal signs Aries, Cancer and Capricorn, they'll be faced with frictions that make them giddy with relationship challenges. For these pairs to work, you'll have to understand the different ways you take charge. There are Libra-Libra pairs in abundance, since both love Love.

Scorpio merges swimmingly with other Water signs Cancer and Pisces. But Scorpio will need to trust enough for true emotional revelation to experience the intimacy they crave. The Scorpio-Taurus match creates a duo with the power to build an empire. The Scorpio-Scorpio couple has to fight (literally) to keep from imploding, but they can work out most things in the bedroom.

Sagittarius is on the move and admires the spark of other Fire signs Aries and Leo. The Sagittarius-Gemini couple star in their own action adventure and are best friends, as well as lovers. Aquarius understands Sadge independence. The physical Sagittarius can find an unspoken understanding with any of the Earth signs Capricorn, Virgo or Taurus. Sagittarius is known as the “friend of the Zodiac” in more ways than one.

Capricorn is drawn to the other Earth signs Virgo and Taurus. But Capricorn could get restless with these two, and seek out relationships with more edge. Like in life, Capricorn is an achiever in romance, and other cardinal signs Cancer, Libra and Aries offer that coveted brass ring. The Capricorn-Aquarius match has a cool dignity that gives each plenty of emotional space.

Aquarius wants both love and freedom, and the other Air signs Gemini and Libra are good prospects. But the rebel Aquarius balks at Libra's people-pleasing ways, and might find Gemini too all over the place. The Aquarius-Leo match foretells many interesting puzzles to unravel over time. A Virgo or Capricorn can bring the Aquarius down to Earth, but without forcing too much togetherness. True to form, Aquarians will likely surprise everyone with the mate they choose.

Pisces is cherished as an enigma with the other Water signs Cancer and Scorpio. The Pisces-Virgo allows the drifter to find a piece of land to settle on, and lifts Virgo up from the mundane to see life from more lofty perspective. A Pisces-Pisces affair could lead to total oneness, but they should make sure they have a separate life, too.
