Astrology Sign Love Compatibility: Which Zodiac Sign Is Best to Date vs. Avoid

It’s a wild time to date. Dating apps connect us to people we never would have met in real life. As our understanding of love, relationships, orientation, and gender evolve there are more ways than ever to find the right person (or people) for you. However, whether you’re straight, queer, monogamous or polyamorous, the pick-up line “what’s your sign?” is as useful as ever. In addition to breaking the ice on a first date, knowing you and your potential match’s sign can unlock a world of knowledge about where you’re compatible (and where you may struggle).

There are a plethora of approaches used by astrologers to calculate celestial compatibility. Astrologers look at synastry, composite charts and midpoints, progressions, and transits to identify the best matches for their clients. While these processes can quickly become extremely complex and rigorous, even the most seasoned astrologers still evaluate compatibility based on sun sign.

Your sun sign is determined by your birthday, literally where the sun is at your time of birth, and represents your core personality. The most common technique to determine compatibility is based on element: You are always best matched with another fire, earth, air, or water sign. Another approach is to consider your opposite sign (the sign that occurs during your half-birthday): While opposite sign matches can often have a bit of an odd-couple vibe, the counterbalance within these pairs make for some of the most dynamic duos.

The stars can also help you avoid shitty partnerships. Incompatible relationships can manifest in many ways, but at the end of the day, ill-fated matches stifle self-growth, feed insecurities, and create toxic dynamics. Though there’s no single way to spot one, a simple astrological trick used to calculate incompatibility is to identify the signs two away from your own (in either direction). In astrospeak, these signs create unfavorable “square” aspects — difficult 90-degree angles that create tension, anxiety, and miscommunication.

However, just as our understanding of love is evolving, so is our understanding of astrology. While sun signs, squares, and elements are a fun start, for a full compatibility reading, you must look at you and your potential match’s entire chart. For instance, your Venus sign indicates how you approach romance while your Mars sign can indicate how you initiate sex. If you know your birth time, you can do your chart with a quick internet search.

Love is an exciting, scary, and powerful thing — use the cosmic compatibility guide ahead to discover your most and least compatible sun signs and help make sense of it all. Of course, the most accurate assessment will come from the lived experience the universe provides you. Have fun reading who you may be most compatible with, but if you find someone who treats you well and you’re sexually compatible with, do not end things based on their sun sign. And remember: All relationships require hard work, dedication, mutual respect, and trust.

Aries — the first sign of the zodiac — are known for their fiery energy, exciting impulsivity, and insatiable desire to be the best. On a great day, dating an Aries is like partnering with a fierce, unstoppable warrior. On a bad day, however, Aries’ strong will and temper tantrums can become a bit juvenile. They may become cranky if they don’t have enough physical affection, including both snuggling and sex.
