What happens when you fall for someone who is opposed to you, astrologically speaking? We’re taking a look at each sun sign’s opposite number and analyzing their compatibility and probable outcome. Let’s find out if opposites attract, and if it will work out.
Aquarius and Leo Compatibility
This is an unpredictable combination of air and fire. Fire consumes air, but can’t survive without it. This pairing thrives on a passionate love life. Physical attraction is the glue that holds them together. They are both exciting lovers and able to enthrall the other. To maintain this high level of passion, Aquarius should pay special attention to Leo, who thrives on compliments. Leo must be aware that Aquarius needs their own space and will occasionally appear to withdraw from the relationship.
Leo and Aquarius Negative Aspects
While the bedroom is where Leo and Aquarius are usually in agreement, in day-to-day life they might find things a little difficult. Fiery, self-confident Leo meets intellectual, rebellious Aquarius. Both are stubborn and capable of keeping an argument going for some time. They don’t have too many things in common, so it is vitally important that each allows the other to follow their path. The most important aspect of the relationship is communication, and it often breaks down. Therefore, it is essential to work on how they speak to the other, and also to pay attention when listening.
Pisces and Virgo Compatibility
These are two gentle signs and can often fall in love forever. Watery Pisces’ sensitivity can relax and trust in Virgo’s sensible, but sweet, down-to-earth nature. Virgo will never take Pisces love for granted. Indeed, the two place their relationship as the most important thing in their lives. Virgo will help Pisces to organize their daily routines; Pisces will show Virgo that it’s okay to let go occasionally. This pairing makes really lovely parents and any child of Virgo and Pisces should count their blessings.
Virgo and Pisces Negative Aspects
Virgo’s tendency to worry about everything can undermine and distress Pisces, who has a careless attitude. This works Virgo into a tizzy of anxiety that could send Pisces swimming downstream to escape. Both should be aware of this aspect of their relationship and gird themselves to make compromises. Virgo must endeavor to let go of every little detail, and Pisces must try to engage with practicalities now and then.
Aries and Libra Compatibility
Fizzing chemistry is apparent from the beginning in this relationship. If anyone can fall in love at first sight, it will be this pair. Each sees their partner as their other half, their perfect fit. Inevitably their relationship is based on a passionate sex life. This couple takes pleasure in demonstrating their love publicly, and will be seen holding hands and smooching. When together, they have to be always touching each other. Aries pushes the limits while Libra maintains harmony and balance.
Libra and Aries Negative Aspects
The problem with this couple is that the sexual chemistry that drew them together cannot be sustained, so that in everyday life, communications can become strained. That perfect fit, where one partner makes up for the shortcomings of the other, can turn into resentment. Aries appears to be the stronger partner; in reality, Libra holds the power. Libra prefers to deliberate over a decision whereas Aries will impulsively leap right in. This could make the relationship untenable for Libra.
Taurus and Scorpio Compatibility
Intense and powerful is the only way to describe this match. Scorpio drama meets sensual Taurus. Bystanders need to take cover when these two get together. Open and transparent Taurus is deeply attracted to mysterious, masked Scorpio, who choreographs their love life to their internal agenda. If this couple can overcome their mutual jealousy and be reassured that love is the real foundation, then they might stand a chance of making it permanent. Maybe.
Scorpio and Taurus Negative Aspects
There’s no doubt that Scorpio is in the driving seat and strives to maintain the appearance of mystery and secretiveness to outsiders. However, Taurus is not easily pushed around, and when they fight, then all hell breaks loose. Bystanders will nod and confirm that it’s all over, but the next minute, passion ensues, and they are in love again. It’s all or nothing between Scorpio and Taurus. Unfortunately, they are unlikely to be able to sustain the effort required to keep it going. Grudges and resentments simmer away under the passion. The break-up is usually monumental and emotionally devastating for both.
Gemini and Sagittarius Compatibility
This combination of air and fire have a lot more in common than at first appears. They share a love for adventure and new places so are keen on travel and vacations, preferably off the beaten track. One of them will have an idea and the very next day they will be off in pursuit of the new dream. They prefer to keep their relationship casual, loving the premise that they are together because they want to be. They like to talk about their preference for living in the moment, not dwelling on the past and letting the future happen as it will.
Sagittarius and Gemini Negative Aspects
The downside to this pair is that they are so busy concentrating on their adventures, following their dreams and relishing their joint intellectual superiority that they forget that an exciting life needs an underpinning of practicality. So, even though they are living the romantic ideal, the bills must be paid, children have to go to school, and work needs to be done. These mundane concerns could be their undoing, with each blaming the other for lack of attention to the basics.
Cancer and Capricorn Compatibility
These two are the commonsense couple of opposite sun signs. Cancer is nurturing and kind while Capricorn is practical and level-headed. Trust and reliability are way up the list of positive attributes. They are the ideal pairing for creating a happy and well-tempered household. They may not be the most naturally passionate; nevertheless, love between them is profound, stable and long-lasting. They place family first above all other concerns. Creating a loving home for their children is their driving motivation as a couple.
Capricorn and Cancer Negative Aspects
This combination must watch that they don’t become overly dependent upon each other. There is also the chance that they can get stuck in a boring rut. Emotional, feeling Cancer may wish that cool Capricorn is more loving and demonstrative. The deep need that Cancer has for emotional stability is often met with a cold shoulder. This is not because Capricorn doesn’t love them, but more that they need a little distance. Capricorn is self-contained, whereas Cancer reaches out. If they each recognize the other’s needs, they can easily overcome the potential difficulties and create a long-lasting relationship.
