The recent boom of interest in astrology can likely be attributed to the fact that we love learning more about ourselves and bolstering our self-awareness. But what we adore just as much (maybe even more sometimes, if we're being honest) is learning about the objects of our affection and whether or not we're destined for a cinematic love story — or at least, a satisfying romp between the sheets. And the planets — specifically your natal chart (or birth chart) — can offer helpful intel.
Here, several planetary factors that can provide insight into your zodiac sign compatibility as well as which sign pairings are the most compatible, the most challenging, and the those that are just hit-or-miss.
Gemini Man Compatibility With Libra Woman:- The Gemini man Libra woman love compatibility is the best in all the zodiac signs. Since both are air signs, they tend to fly and have the potential to be ever-flowing and energetic. In bed, the Gemini man will ignite the fire of passion for the Libran.Also read: Complete Guide to Zodiac Signs & Meanings
When considering whether you and a potential or existing partner are going to hit it off, you'll want to compare the following celestial bodies. (To get your natal chart — which contains all this info and can help you determine your astrological compatibility, among many other things — you can consult an astrologer or plug your info into an online service such as astrology.com.)
Your sun signs: Whether you're filling out a dating app profile or buying a pretty new zodiac sign pendant, the sign you identify with is the sign that the sun was moving through at the time of your birth. The sun oversees your self-image, self-esteem, identity, and how you experience confidence. It can also influence your life path.
Your moon signs: The shimmering, mysterious moon is considered your inner emotional compass. It's tied not only to the experiences, people, and material items in life that offer you a sense of security but it also impacts how you connect emotionally with others. That's why it's so helpful for identifying someone who shares your values and how you experience intuition and emotion. (Related: How Moon Signs Compatibility Can Affect Your Relationships)
Your Venus Signs: The planet of love, romance, beauty, and money speaks to what you most value in a relationship, how you demonstrate desire, how you attract others, and the way you experience pleasure. It can very much characterize how you behave in any of your social interactions and relationships — romantic or otherwise — and color your love language. For those reasons, it's a key player when looking at zodiac sign compatibility.
Your Mars Signs: Mars, the planet of action, influences the things in life that drive you, your energy, your strength, your inner fire, and yep, your sexual style. Chances are, you want your partner to be on the same (or at least a similar) page in terms of all of those aspects of life, so it's a major planet to look to when determining how well you'll vibe with someone else — in and out of bed.

A big-picture must-know: You'll want to think about how all of these planets interact with one another to really investigate astrological compatibility — not just like with like. For example, your sun might technically be square (the harshest angle — more on that in a sec) your partner's sun, but your Venus signs are trine (the sweetest angle), and your moon signs are conjunct (meaning in the same sign). Harmonious aspects like those can significantly rosy up what might, at first glimpse at sun signs, seem like a problematic picture.
Although the most in-depth look at astrological compatibility will come from looking closely at two people's whole natal charts, you can generally find a natural compatibility between two people whose birth charts display trines between their planets. The trine — which indicates that two signs are four signs apart — is the most supportive, harmonious angle between two signs.
Basically, these are the signs that are in the same element as your sign. A quick refresher on which signs fall where — and are therefore trine one another:
You might also consider signs that are sextile yours. These signs are two signs apart and fall under a compatible element. Fire and air are simpatico, as are water and earth. While the relationship isn't as frequently celebrated as the trine, it's considered friendly and easygoing. The signs you're sextile to, based on your sign:
Again, astrologers often warn against jumping to conclusions — positive or negative — based exclusively on your sun sign, but generally speaking, squares can indicate challenges in a relationship. The square occurs between signs that are three signs apart, and it's pretty much the astrological version of clashing or head-butting.
Two signs that are square have the same quality (also referred to as quadruplicities): cardinal, mutable, or fixed. Cardinal signs excel at seeing the big picture but not so much with the details, mutable signs are the most flexible but can also struggle to commit, and fixed signs are resolute on their best day and stubborn as hell on their worst.
Having these traits in common might initially sound like the fast track to compatibility, but in the case of squares, too much of the same energy can spell conflict. The following signs are square one another:
If your sun — or any planet — is in the same sign as your partner's, they're conjunct one another. Although conjunctions can make for too much of the same energy at times, plenty of celeb couples have proven it can work. For example, both Natalie Portman and her husband Benjamin Millepied are Geminis — and celebrate birthdays just one day apart (June 9 and June 10). Nick and Vanessa Lachey are both Scorpios — and even share the same birthday (November 9). And although that famous 6.1-carat pink diamond didn't lead to nuptials with fellow Leo Ben Affleck (born August 15), J.Lo (born July 24) did go on to fall for another Lion: Alex Rodriguez (born on July 27).
Similarly, having the sun, the moon, or another planet in a sign that's directly opposite your partner's could create a case of yin and yang, in which you're organically balancing one another — or it could make it tough to see eye-to-eye. (Again, it really depends on other natal chart details to really judge astrological compatibility.)
The following signs are opposite one another:
A couple of famous examples of attracted opposites: Cancer Prince William (born June 21) and Capricorn Kate Middleton (born January 9) and Leo Mila Kunis (born August 14) and Aquarius Ashton Kutcher (born February 7).

Exploring how your sun, moon, Venus, and Mars signs interact with a partner's can offer valuable intel on how you connect or clash. But it's important to bear in mind that these details are just a jumping-off point. There are many other layers to investigate when you're considering astrological compatibility. You'll want to understand how certain birth chart details might mirror, harmonize, or clash with your partner's. (For example, say they have a slew of planets in their 12th house, which makes them super-private, while you have most of yours in the 1st house, which means you wear your heart on your sleeve.) You can also look at how your charts interact when they're overlapped on one another (an area of astrology called synastry). Sound like a lot? It is; that's why it's so helpful to sit down with a pro astrologer who can help you zero in on specifics and offer a high-level overview.

Aquarius, the Water bearer … the visionary … the sign of the future and of reform. Aquarius is a sign symbolized by a human being (the water bearer). The eleventh sign of the zodiac, Aquarius represents equality, groups, corporations, fraternity, democracy, organizations and friends. Straight out of the future, Aquarius is easily the weirdest sign of the zodiac. Although Aquarius appears to be a water sign, it is actually a fixed air sign.
Known to be the sign of genius, Aquarian eyes are typically vague, with a dreamy, wandering expression.
Continuously analyzing situations, people and anything else that peeks their interest, Aquarians often probe into the heart of the private feelings of others. They solve riddles of life or of the perplexing nature of a person, only to move on once they discover the truth. They look at elements of life with a microscopic lens.
Kind and friendly, rather distant and frequently unpredictable, the eleventh sign of the zodiac is a humanitarian at heart, ready to help others in a moment’s notice. Original, unorthodox people, Aquarians are wacky, witty characters with a great sense of humor, who refuse to follow the crowd. They have a unique view on life, often ahead of their time. Those born of this water bearing sign are generous, soft-spoken, courteous and tranquil beings who often enjoy rebellion and going against popular opinions. The Aquarians are the natural rebels of the zodiac. Sometimes they rebel for a reason, sometimes simply for the sake of rebellion.
A certain amount of unpredictability is to be expected from this water bearing air sign. They tend to surprise and shock when least expected. Aquarius has no care for what the world thinks, sailing against the crowd. They logically pursue their own set of social values. The isolation this brings is often a surprise, despite the super reliance on other senses, they can miss the obvious. Aquarians are often misunderstood.
The Aquarian-born identifies with being a human, concepts of peace, love and brotherhood. This is a very friendly sign. They make friends with everyone, although their close relationships are few. They are only close and intimate with a limited amount of people. The water bearer sees everyone as an equal, befriending people from all walks of life. If you touch the heart of an Aquarian however, they will be drawn toward understanding why and perhaps even develop a closer friendship.
They love to communicate, talking to everyone, yet do not talk about deeper feelings and parts of themselves that they want to remain hidden. To an Aquarian, everyone is special. Once an Aquarian has accepted a person, they are loyal friends whose good thoughts about someone are unshakable by malicious gossip. If you are their real friend, they do not believe the nasty whispers of enemies.
The odd balls of the zodiac, Aquarians are individualists who rarely care what others think. Extremely original, Aquarians often dictate fashion, rather than slavishly following it. There is a glamorous nature to the Aquarian that attracts many people to them. Most Aquarians, however are not aware of their magnetic charm.
The Aquarius has an instinctive empathy with the mentally disturbed, emotionally unstable and hysterical. The water bearer is able to calm them by their presence and the soothing way that they talk. They are also able to calm frightened children.
The water bearer is not quick to reveal their true feelings. Although they love penetrating to the core of the feelings and behaviors of others they do not make themselves intentionally transparent. It is not because they are hiding anything, rather they prefer to not be exposed and vulnerable to just anyone. Trusting others does not come easy to Aquarius. The reactions and motives of the Aquarian-born are complex and often they are a paradox in themselves. Usually they love the company of others, yet often times they need time to themselves alone. It is best to give them this time, as soon enough they will feel social again. They have an ability to keep their plans secret, revealing only what they want you to know.
Listening to the problems and troubles of others comes naturally for the humanitarian Aquarian. They share in a unique kind of sensitivity and sympathetic understanding that lets the Aquarian know the true desires and needs of others. They often understand others more than they understand themselves, uncovering needs buried deep within. They love to unravel a mystery. Once they do discover the truth, they are off to find another riddle to explore.
Ruled by Uranus, the planet of planet of freedom and revolutionary vision, the urge for change and the ability to visualize new possibilities is innate within the Aquarian-born.
Aquarius is the sign that governs information that traverses the air and electromagnetism. Aquarians are even said to be able to transmit their own thoughts and strong feelings with an unseen charge of electrical current. This is also known as telepathy and the water bearers among us are naturals at this method of communication.
Although Aquarians are passionate, especially about equality and human rights, they often do not like confrontation, aggression or fighting. They leave the fighting for some of the other signs. They are the revolutionary type and want to change the world.
Aquarians are spontaneous, intuitive, imaginative, inventive and inclined to take chances, especially in the service of their goals. Virgo daily health horoscope 2020.
A darker side of Aquarius reveals that the water bearer who prizes humanitarian efforts can be self-centered and even conceited. Although they can be conceited, they are not big shots, nor do they get along with big shots. Aquarians tend to be know-it-all individuals by nature, until they recognize that even though they may be set in their ways, they will benefit by listening to the ideas of others.
A fixed sign, Aquarius can be extremely stubborn, refusing to change their opinions or plans, even when it is in their own interest. Aquarians can become detached to the point of coldness, stuck in a rigid and unrecognizable pattern. They are very unpredictable … and can be stubborn or flexible, chaotic or calm, rebellious or helpful. Aquarians are open and friendly, yet reserved. The water bearer is often indifferent and will seem not to care much, when others think that they should.
Devoted to rebellion, Aquarians sometimes act like rebels without a cause.
In love, an Aquarian must retain a certain amount of independence. It is unwise to give an Aquarian the feeling of being trapped. An Aquarian can involve themselves in a sexual relationship without getting too emotionally involved and attached. Friendship is a key component of romantic relationships with the water bearer. Often attracted to enigmas and mysterious types … closed books whose pages they enjoy finding a way to open up and read. A mystery intrigues the water bearer and can be rather arousing for an Aquarian-born.
These highly social creatures make friends easily, and are most likely to be friends with a partner before they are lovers. In love, Aquarius is tolerant and generous. They give as much freedom as they expect to have, rarely nagging or harping repeatedly about a mistake that was made. They are often reluctant to commit, although once they do they are very loyal and devoted partners.
Aquarian woman are great partners because they are so tolerant, easy to deal with, slow to take offence and are never jealous or unreasonable, never clinging or overemotional. She simply asks for respect of her privacy, which is one of the most important things to her and a little independence to go about her many interests. Although the Aquarian male may not jump quickly into an emotionally involved relationship, once he commits he views it as a very serious matter. He looks for a friend as well as a lover.
An idealist who believes in true love, Aquarius searches for a best friend and soulmate in one. The water bearer is a brainy, funny and charming soul who is magnetic and fascinating. The distant glamor of an Aquarian attracts like a magnet.
Aquarians have a romantic streak … expect the unusual, blending with a futuristic, refined classical style of romanticism.
The eleventh sign adores intellectual stimulation. The meeting of the minds will often precede the meeting of bodies. A loyal and loving sign, most Aquarians are eccentric creatures. They are different and they are drawn toward others who are different too. They love a mysterious type, someone to figure out …
Humanitarians, Aquarius can become fixated in loving mankind rather than one person, however if the right person comes along Aquarius will fall in love quickly. Although they are friendly with many, the water bearer enjoys few close and intimate relationships.
In love, Aquarians are full of surprises … fun, exciting and filled with the unusual. They see beyond the superficialities of appearance and accessories into the minds of their partners. For an Aquarius being in love means a deep connection with their partners minds, with frequent and lively intellectual conversations. Loyal and generous, they never quibble over petty matters.
The water bearer is not only different, perhaps even a little strange and unusual at times, they need to be outside of the crowd. They like it. Love with an Aquarian will be exciting and different, unusual and charming.

An Aquarian love will be interesting and intellectually stimulating. Some Aquarians find sexual intimacy more important than others, however most are enthusiastic about lovemaking. A strong mental connection is important regardless. An Aquarian is usually experimental and quite adventurous. Naturally curious, sex can become an exploration, revealing hidden depth and places of intrigue.
If you want to seduce an Aquarian, let out the unusual within. Be mysterious and do not share your entire life all in one day. Aquarians love to uncover the parts of person that they do not reveal to everyone. Water bearers enjoy people who are unusual and different.
Aquarians are difficult to get to commit. It is difficult to to win the heart of an Aquarian, especially by a direct approach. Be a friend first … it may lead to something more.
To attract an Aquarius, be spontaneous and let out the strange within that you normally keep to yourself. Aquarians like the odd and unusual. If you are planning on going somewhere with an Aquarian, do not plan too much before hand and allow for synchronicities. Be sure to give an Aquarian freedom. Nothing will squeeze the life out of a budding relationship with the water bearer like someone who is too possessive and controlling.
A little flattery couldn’t hurt …
An Aquarius has some Sun Signs that they get along better with than others, although it is important to consider that the Sun Sign is only a small portion of the imprint that stars make on an individual. Just because a Sun Sign match is challenging, difficult or unlikely does not mean it is impossible. In reality there is no 100% typical Aquarius relationship, as every Aquarius is slightly different. The positions of Venus, Mars, Neptune, and all the other planets at the time of birth all influence personality.
The most compatible signs with Aquarius are generally considered to be Aries, Gemini, Libra and Sagittarius.
