As a deeply emotional and passionate sign, your ideal partnership is with a fellow Water sign who can match your intense levels of intimacy. Sensitive Water signs like Pisces has the depth to nurture your soul, while frustrating Fire types like Leo will make you feel out of control.
You project yourself with willpower and sheer passion. Your deep emotional intensity can help you achieve almost anything you seek to accomplish. You have the ability to draw upon hidden sources of power to attain your ends.
Your Aries partner is aggressive and hard driving, motivated by a strong need for excitement and independence. Both signs are ruled by the planet Mars, the Greek god of war, and are therefore endowed with personal willpower and courage. You can endure intense emotions by holding them inward and transforming them from the inside out. Your lover, on the other hand, has a shorter fuse and tends toward outbursts and sudden fits of impatience. Compared to your pensive and sometimes sullen personality, he or she is quicker to forgive and forget than you are.
Aries' short temper and your resentful and sometimes unforgiving personality mix like oil and water. In conflict or competition, your partner can win in the opening rounds, but cannot sustain a position against you, who will win in the long run.
Of course, if this energy is converted to sexual interactions, the power unleashed can rock both your worlds. Your chances for success will be greatly increased if the Moon in your chart is in a fire or air sign, lightening your emotional load. Additionally, if your Mercury or Venus is in Sagittarius, then you won't feel so overwhelmed by the heat of your impulsive Aries mate.
If the two of you can move toward a higher consciousness and get beyond the personality traps of your individual signs, you'll have a chance to create a long-lasting relationship full of powerful love and passion.
You are passionate and sincere when it comes to relationships and sexuality. You need intensity and take pleasure in adorning your mate with affection and attention. If, however, you feel double-crossed, insulted or otherwise emotionally wounded, it may take a couple of lifetimes for you to forgive your lover.
In Taurus, you find someone who is trustworthy and has basic and simple needs. Your Taurus mate is secure, sensual and steadfast in relationships. Occupying the opposite zone of the zodiacal wheel, your Bull loves to be on the receiving end of your intense passions.
The two of you will indulge each other, spoiling one another and thoroughly enjoying the experience, as long as you maintain you status quo regarding relationship needs and wants. This is a delicate balance, for trouble can quickly brew if you two fixed signs have power struggles over dominance. You each make a worthy adversary if it comes to that, and an emotional meltdown between the two of you would not be a pretty picture.
Other problems may arise if you feel too restrained by the down-to-earth simplicity of your Taurus partner, unless you have the Moon or Venus in a practical earth sign.
The good news is that together, the two of you will have a strong flair for romantic evenings, candle-lit dinners, and gift giving. The trick will be how to maintain balance and if you can do this, it can be very satisfying and rewarding for both of you.
You love to solve mysteries and delve deeply into the affairs of others, sometimes even without their knowledge. You are a natural detective who enjoys unraveling a puzzling situation, which is partly why you are drawn toward suspense and powerful emotional drama.
The keen intellect and sharp wit of your Gemini partner appreciates these qualities in you and may actually enjoy sharing ideas and debating issues with you, but they are no match for your intensity. In fact, you just may scare the heck out of them. While Gemini is attracted to the display of fireworks, you are more concerned with what is fueling the volcano. You just may be too serious for Gemini.
If, however, your chart has the Moon in an air sign or if Venus is in Libra or Sagittarius, compatibility is more likely.
Your clever Gemini may have a half-passionate, half-intellectual approach to affairs of the heart-creating a romantic interlude that includes discussions about the unknown mysteries of life. The biggest obstacle that you'll need to overcome is that your Gemini mate is flighty and casually flirtatious, which will stir up your issues of jealousy and possessiveness.
You will each have some adjustments to make in order to create a harmonious relationship with each another.
As a water sign you tend toward emotional intensity and psychic perceptions. You are acutely aware of the undercurrents of your environment and are able to detect the moods of the people around your with your probing mind.
Cancer is also a water sign who expresses feelings and moods with greater unpredictability than you. You both tend to hold in your feelings, but for different reasons. Yours are so powerful that you often tone down their intensity so as not to scare others. Your Cancer lover, however, is often quiet because they are worried that if they shared their feelings, others wouldn't love them. For them, it is an issue of building enough trust so they feel secure with verbalizing emotions.
Crabs can hide behind a hard outer shell to help them with issues of insecurity. Your partner's soft, caring and nurturing character coaxes you out of the hidden corners of your own suppressed emotions. Meanwhile, you strengthen their intuitive hunches and teach them to have courage enough to stand up for what need.
Your lover can be highly expressive sexually, but may be more hesitant than you, needs tender encouragement and care along the way. Still, Crabs are able to receive and reflect the power of your physical urges, even if they seem more fragile.
Differences of style can get in the way of easy day-to-day routines if the Moon in your chart is in Aries, Libra, Sagittarius or Aquarius.
Regardless of the Moon's placement, you enjoy each other's company and may be attracted to spend quality time near the ocean or different types of water environments. If the two of you choose to create a household together, it will be full of powerful emotions, yet it can ultimately turn into a quiet nurturing and private space, separate from the busy outside world.
Chances are that you are an accomplished individual who needs to feel as though you are productive and respected within your sphere. You take pride in your efforts to meet the needs of the community and are often employed in jobs that are risky, dangerous and intense, requiring specific skills combined with courage. There are many police officers, firefighters, and doctors who are born under the influence of Scorpio.
Leos are also deeply sincere in their efforts, but they tend to be more grandiose and flamboyant in the outer world, sometimes grabbing the limelight away from less showy signs. If your Leo underestimates your value by stealing attention or making light of your worth, you will find it intolerable and probably cut off the relationship.
You and your Leo lover are both fixed signs, and therefore can be quite stubborn in your own individual ways. Unless you have the Moon or Mars in a fire sign, you may see your partner as someone who wastes energy on the wrong things.
Even with other compatible planets, this relationship is fraught with tension. You'll surely need to compromise in significant ways and learn to respect each other's very different characters. If you can accept each other, there is a high level of loyalty in each of you that can make this become a lasting union.
You have a deep and personal interest in transformation and healing drawing on inner power to overcome emotional and physical trauma. It's as if you can transcend the boundaries of everyday living and mundane thought forms. When you put your mind to something, you can soar like an eagle into the heights, let go of the old patterns, thus experiencing self-empowerment from your rebirth.
Like you, your Virgo partner has tremendous resources available to them and they will exert this power inwardly in order to overcome their own obstacles and challenges.
Virgo's energy is more analytical and practical than yours. You tend to be more emotional and raw, unless your Moon or Mars is in an earth sign, grounding your feelings and increasing compatibility.
There is a deep respect between you and your partner and together you can make very good work allies, as you appreciate the careful order from which Virgo conducts the everyday routines of life. You bring your Virgo mate into a world of increased feeling and deepened passion, while he or she offers you a rational and logical way to work with your internal process of change.
Romantically, you are both too hot for many people, and although your partner may seem cool and detached, he or she can focus passion like a laser. If Virgo's narrow beam of white hot intensity does not aim directly at you, it would be easy to miss it completely. But if the light of love shines your way, you two can cultivate long-lasting and mutually satisfying rhythms and routines that withstand the tests of time.
You enjoy the seclusion of peaceful surroundings, which can help soothe your passions. You are private in your romantic and home life-often remaining cautious and reserved, even secretive, in the early stages of intimacy. It can take you a fair amount of time before allowing another to enter into the deeper regions of your soul.
Your Libra lover can add an artistic refinement to your environment and can help you find ways to balance your head and your heart. He or she will probably be more socially oriented than you, approaching life from an intellectually based set of sensibilities. You, on the other hand, feel things without necessarily putting words to them. Libra uses language and actions to create pleasantness, and as such makes for an excellent host or hostess.
The question is: do you want someone to make things nice? Or do you want someone who can engage your tumultuous passions at the deepest levels of experience? If you have Venus in Libra, compatibility is increased. If your Moon is in any air sign (Gemini, Libra or Aquarius), you will be more accepting of your partner's artistic gifts.
Even without this support from other planets, Libra can be a suitable match for you. They are able to create a refined atmosphere that exudes enchantment and magnetism. You thrive in these surroundings, for this tranquil and satisfying home becomes a base that allows you open your heart to the love and beauty around you.
If you allow, your lovely Libra can lead you into a more gentle way of living, while you return sincere and lasting love to your mate. Together you can share a deep and abiding trust from which you explore the virtues of pleasure and the finer things in life.
You are interested in all the untold secrets and mysteries of the universe, especially those involving transformation and change. You tend to be complex as you seek to merge the physical and spiritual realms.
You can either be extremely honest and honorable or revengeful, judging, and manipulative. For you, there is rarely a middle ground. You are in or out. You are hot or cold. When your meet another Scorpio, it is possible you will immediately dislike each other at first. Powerful passions and fears come to the surface, bringing up issues and intimacy and control. You can be powerful mirrors to each other and you may not like seeing yourself so closely.
There can be strong magnetism and attraction, but as you see yourself from a different viewpoint, you may be astounded at how intense you are. The placement in your chart of Mars-your key or ruling planet-is important. If it is compatible with your lover's chart, this union can be most successful.
At times, the intensity may be so great that you will feel a need to get away from your partner, which is healthy and advised. As two strong water signs, you'll be able to go very deep together, but may need the fresh air of new experiences and people.
You'll each need to learn how to get past petty jealousies and let go of the little arguments that come your way. Try to bring humor into your relationship.
In the best case, you see each other as intense allies and teachers. Because of the physical and emotional intensity, strong sexuality issues can manifest and you will each need courage and trust to push through whatever surfaces.
You Scorpios have a keen sense of financial strategy, preferring to manage their money matters with a dignified intelligence. You can be brutally truthful and have great integrity in the business world, no matter what the cost.
When you combine your street savvy and management capabilities with the optimistic and truth-oriented Sagittarius, there is tremendous chemistry and mutual respect. The biggest conflict is that your intuition is emotionally based and you've learned how to trust your feelings, but your Sagittarius partner shoots from the hip and can be ready to swing into action with enthusiasm riding roughshod over your objections.
Sagittarius can become impatient with your need to process emotions. On the other hand, you'll grow weary of your lover's avoidance of unpleasant or dark feelings. You want to go there and process them. He or she wants to avoid them at all cost.Your chance for optimum compatibility is improved if the Moon in your chart is in a fire sign or air sign.
Sagittarians are active and adventurous. They are inspiring as they blaze trails into the future and off into the distance with irrepressible confidence and self-esteem. You can reap some benefits in a relationship with a loving Sagittarius mate whose natural character is one of vision and goodwill. He or she can offer humor to your sometimes overly serious ways. Meanwhile, you add intensity and passion to the relationship as you push your Archer into deeper emotional, spiritual and philosophical realms.
Allowing for differences of style, you can make a success of this combination and complement each other very well.
Privacy and self-preservation play a significant role in your life. You aren't inclined to casually blurt out feelings or opinions when in the company of groups, new friends, or professional settings. However intense and passionate your feelings, you keep your thoughts to yourself-revealing little of your internal life until you fully trust the people around you.
Capricorns display similar behavior, although for different reasons. They, too, portray a cautious and reserved demeanor, holding their feelings in deep reserve, but for the Goat, it is about doing what is right. Sharing feelings in many situations is just inappropriate for them.
For you, it's more about trust. No matter what the motivation, when paired with a Capricorn, you each respect one another's personal space, allowing room for process, restoration and rejuvenation. Unless you have the Moon or Venus in an earth sign, you might find the Capricorn too dry and lacking of emotion.
But don't let that cool exterior fool you. Capricorn learns the steps and then can dance with total abandon. As you teach your lover how to explore the depths of feelings, he or she will follow your lead.
Capricorns are very special love mates, preferring to display affection and sensuality within the confines of their own seclusion. There can be great chemistry between you two, and the sex can register quite high on the Richter scale. If you are both willing to trust the open channels of communication, this can be a lasting and loving union.
You want a secluded home environment that reflects your need for depth and privacy, a place where you can safely express your passions with your lover.
Your Aquarius partner needs a more communal or group-related life, preferring more casual interactions with additional people. This difference in approach to life can stop this relationship right in its tracks before it ever leaves the station. If, however, your can meet in the middle, you may together create a most interesting life -- one that is filled with eccentric and individual taste.
Together, you will prefer to host people in your home rather than venturing out into other people's territory. In this way, you get to experience the safety and integrity of your social world as you define it and your Aquarius mate is able to bring his or her need for additional interactions to the hearth of a comforting home.
You are both fixed signs and can be stubborn to the core. You'll need to stay vigilant on this issue or you can easily slip into engaging in power struggles. It will help if Venus in your chart is in Libra or Sagittarius.
Your possessive tendencies may feel restrictive to your independent Aquarius lover. Trust is the key issue in this relationship.
This is not an easy combination, but you can achieve happiness and success if you can offer each other room to be who you are without judgment. It will take practice for each of you to set aside your strong opinions, but it can be worth it.
You can be extremely attentive to your partner's emotional needs as long as you are able to say what you feel -- and that means you need to feel safe and secure. You have a tendency to be possessive and jealous, especially if you have suffered rejection and/or abandonment in past relationships or from your parents. If you have suffered emotional hurt, you can hold resentful and unforgiving memories for a long time.
Pisces, another water sign, is emotionally sensitive and compassionate, often preferring to relate with those who understand the mystical treasures of life. Your Pisces lover has a kind heart and can sooth your intense emotions, lending a tender understanding to the plight of your life trials. Although you are both emotionally oriented, your Pisces mate may seem less involved than you in processing personal feelings.
Pisces tend to spiritualize feelings, turning passion into compassion. Still, they can be easily bruised by your powerful emotional outbursts. You'll need to learn to soften your presentation and they'll need to toughen up a bit. If your Moon is in Gemini, Leo, Libra or Sagittarius, you may find it more difficult to understand your mate, who can seem confused and disconnected from the real world.
You can strengthen the life path of your Pisces partner as they watch you demonstrate the inward focus and resourcefulness that you possess. This can be a wonderful match and your imaginative Pisces lover offers you the keys to a dreamy and sensual love life.
