For every sign in the zodiac, there is another sign that is tailor-made to help bring out their best qualities, while also transforming them into the most creative versions of themselves. In short: pair these two up together and there’s bound to be fireworks. Of course, each sign is creative in its own way, but seeking out a zodiac partner that complements that creativity can give your projects the boost they need to be better than you ever imagined.
Aries + Gemini
Aries has no problem barreling headfirst into a new creative project, and Gemini is a literal brainstorming machine. Put the two of them together and you have a recipe for some incredible creative output. Aries’s type-A leadership skills are ideal for reining in Gemini’s flighty tendencies, while Gemini’s flexibility and stellar idea generation will help Aries from getting bored. TLDR: a rock star creative team.
Taurus + Pisces
Taurus is known for being a very sensitive sign, and they’ll find their match in Pisces, one of the most sensitive signs in the zodiac. And it’s because of this similarity that Pisces and Taurus feel seen and heard. This makes it possible for them turn their emotions into creative output all while respecting each other’s boundaries and vulnerabilities. Plus, Pisces’s natural creativity will help a stubborn Taurus think outside the box, while Taurus’s diligent work ethic will help Pisces stick with their projects until the end.
Gemini + Aquarius
Gemini has no problem generating ideas, but sometimes they need help tying their creative work to the bigger picture. Enter Aquarius, aka the “big picture” expert. When these two air signs get together, they’re bound to succeed, feeding off of each other’s energy and enthusiasm for as long as it takes to get things done. The only thing they have to watch out for is jealousy, as both tend to prefer being the smartest person in the room. Just leave room to let each other shine, and you both absolutely will!
Cancer + Scorpio
Water signs love to go deep, and when Cancer and Scorpio get together, that goes double. Because they both share goals that go way beyond getting work done and clocking out at the end of the day, these two can find themselves as amazing collaborative partners. Cancer and Scorpio creative teams will spend hours discussing the philosophy behind their work since they both tend to be laser-focused on making things for a greater purpose. We’re not saying it’ll 100 percent be a Cancer/Scorpio pairing that eventually cures cancer, but let’s just say we won’t be surprised if it is.
Leo + Sagittarius
Signs of the same element tend to make amazing creative pairs because they just get each other, and it’s no different for Leo and Sagittarius. These two fire signs can combine to make an unstoppable energetic force, meaning anything these two start together will get finished. Leo can be a particularly powerful duo when it comes to the pitch process, as Leo’s gregarious nature helps bring people in and make them feel comfortable, while Sagittarius brings it all home with their charm, wit and humor. The Sharks are bound to invest.
Virgo + Capricorn
Virgo and Capricorn aren’t necessarily known for their creativity (no offense), but put them together and their combined work ethic can lead to some amazing things. Teams can be tricky for Virgo because they tend to think no one works as hard as them, but when paired with the ultra-committed Capricorn, Virgo’s anxieties evaporate. Once both signs are able to feel secure that the other one is pulling their weight, there’s no end to what these two can create together. (Just ask them.)
Libra + Aries
Opposites attract in the case of Libra and Aries, but just like in love, sometimes a mismatched pair is actually the most fruitful. One of Libra’s biggest issues while working creatively is their difficulty with decision making. Cue Aries, one of the best decision makers in the zodiac. Aries can take the lead in creative projects while naturally collaborative Libra can help meld their two visions together. Sure, their different styles can sometimes create friction, but learn to get past it and these two can really ride that astrological synergy.
Capricorn + Pisces
Career-focused Capricorn can sometimes lose sight of their own creative vision, but naturally creative Pisces can help them stay connected. In return, Capricorn will help Pisces be assertive and stand up for their ideas, rather than ceding them to other people. Pisces can also help soften Capricorn’s hard edge and steer them away from self-centered actions by showing them the value of collaboration in the creative process. (Remember: sharing is caring, Cap.) They also work great as out-of-work buddies, and, c’mon, who doesn’t need one of those?
Aquarius + Libra
This air sign pairing could lead to some seriously great inventions as both these signs love using their brainpower to solve problems while also—somehow—remaining laser-focused on making the world a better place. If anyone can solve climate change, it’s this dynamic duo. As an added bonus, Libra is socially comfortable, which can take the edge off socially awkward Aquarius, giving them ample room to create and collaborate without being too in their heads.
Pisces + Pisces
Pisces is the most creative sign in the zodiac, so if you get two of them in a room together...hide the paint. Or at least put down a tarp. This pairing can’t help but expressing all of their ingenious energy, and by pairing up with a fellow fish they won’t have to slow down or explain the details. Ideate with abandon, little fishies, the world is waiting for your ideas.
