Is our love life written in the stars? Does astrology really present us with our ideal partner/s in romance? Many believe so, and the typical rule of thumb is to look to your own astrological element group or opposite sign for your best match.

Astrological element groups

Air: Gemini, Libra and Aquarius

Earth: Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo

Water: Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio

Fire: Leo, Aries and Sagittarius

Opposite astrological signs

  • Aries & Libra

  • Taurus & Scorpio

  • Gemini & Sagittarius

  • Cancer & Capricorn

  • Leo & Aquarius

  • Virgo & Pisces

But we’re not all about the typical rule of thumb here.

What about those oddball, weirdly electric matches that has everyone raising an eyebrow, including, sometimes, the people embroiled within them? Some hook-ups might not make sense in theory, but in practice, there’s some chemistry...

Unlikely star sign matches that actually make sense

Gemini and Virgo

Trash talker Gemini and fussy-pants Virgo might seem like a match made in the place that relationships go to die, but they share a planetary influence: Mercury. This helps them communicate on the same wavelength. These two magpies love collecting gossip, information, opinions and ideas. They can entertain each other for hours! They are peas in a pod when it comes to how they both encounter and absorb the world around them.

Aries & Gemini

Although they do not share a planet, element or quality, Aries and Gemini do share an enormous appetite for adventure, chaos and fun. This pair, when they get together, can create mayhem and who knows where it will all end (prison, hospital, wedding chapel, graveyard- all are in scope, srsly). Fire (Aries) and Air (Gemini) are both deemed as masculine signs (I dunno why) and therefore share an action-focused, daring, even reckless or careless approach to life. When they get going, either join the parade or hide until it’s over.

Taurus & Leo

Laidback, deliberating, stay-at-home-and-chill Taurus meets assertive, attention-seeking, go-out-all-night-and-party' Leo. You might think they’d clash, being at so opposite ends of the social spectrum, but they share a significant (and v hot) sexual chemistry because they both love being physical and getting intimate. Sex is a really important human connection for most, but especially these signs. They are DTF all day, all night, all week.

Cancer & Sagittarius

Drama is what draws these opposite characters together, so this is possibly a cosmic connection that occurs more frequently amongst the young (because as we get older, we don't have time for all that). Cancer yearns to be needed and pandered to, which Sagittarius will find cute at first, but then (inevitably) drift off and forget to message etc. Cancer will not take that lying down and will then commence with their ~errant partner play book tactics~ which will entertain Sagittarius to no end.

And, beneath all this, both signs have huge hearts and lots of affection to offer, so they’ll always end up back together (until it it wears super thin).

Virgo & Aquarius

Two cool-headed, intellectual, talking-non-stop quirky bods who will get off on each other’s cleverness and debating skills. Whether Aquarius and Virgo ever make it near a bedroom is another matter, but on a mental and cerebral level they are on fire! And maybe it’s good to have relationships like that sometimes. They possess not one single cosmic facet in common (planet, element, quality) but they both are super shrewd and smart, and curious about the world around them. Zodiac Debate Club is open - wanna join? (nope).

Scorpio & Capricorn

This is the zodiac’s unexpected power couple. Scorpio and Capricorn love to be in control, wield power, get respect, make money and live the good life. So, when these two are in cahoots, all is well and they can climb the ladder of life and make it to luxurious heights, helping each other be fabulous. If they are not aligned, however, this can go south pretty fast. Neither sign has the patience, empathy or ~give~ to let the other win nor lead, unless they are in total agreement about the terms of engagement and reasons why. It’s strategic. When the going’s good, this pairing rocks. When it’s not, it sucks.

Pisces & Libra

Both rival for the title of the ‘nicest sign of the zodiac’, albeit that is all they have in common, so when they get together it tends to work out better than it should ~on paper~ because they are both too nice to say otherwise! Libra is the zodiac’s diplomat while Pisces is the zodiac’s therapist, so they can both talk for hours, bare their souls, share a real intimacy, and get along famously. Cracks may appear (Libra’s flirting and indecisiveness, Pisces’ dreaminess and self pity), but it can take a heck of a long time for that to unfold. Basically, it's good whilst it’s good.
