As far as defining traits go, Aries is bold, impatient, independent, and always up for something new, Lisa Barretta , an astrologer and author of Conscious Ink , tells Bustle.
And as a result, they are well matched with fun and adventurous types, like Sagittarius and Aquarius. There is always a sense of exciting challenge with this paring. That said, if Aries is looking to achieve a few solid goals, they might be happiest with Leo, Robert Phoenix , an author and astrologer, tells Bustle. Leo and Aries can do well when it comes to having a family and settling down, since this can be important for both signs.
Taurus is defined by several traits, including patience, loyalty, sensuality, and frugality. They also really like to be comfortable, Barretta says, which is why they might be happiest marrying a Cancer. When it comes to marriage, this is always beneficial, especially since most breakups are caused by money disagreements. That said, "Scorpio is also a good match for Taurus since this sign is also very private and patient," Barretta says.
Gemini loves to have fun, which is why Farrar suggests they look for a partner who can move quickly, offer stimulating conversation, and keep them from getting bored. This is one sign that'll move on if they aren't feeling excited, so they look for folks who can keep up. Aquarius can be a good match for that very reason. Another good match would be Sagittarius, "since they are both friendly signs and usually have lots of friends that form an interesting social circle," Barretta says, which is perfect for Gemini, since they value being social and surrounding themselves with good people.
As a nurturing, moody, empathetic, and family-oriented sign, Cancer will want a partner who helps them feel safe. And that's why Leo tends to have what it takes to make a marriage work. For this marriage to work, they'll both need to listen to each other and create firm boundaries, so that they both feel secure. Taurus can also make a great partner, since they are patient enough to wait out Cancer's dark moods, Barretta says. These two have the ability to understand each other no matter what life throws their way, which is a trait that can certainly come in handy when navigating the ups and downs of life.
Leo is an incredibly proud, creative, and dramatic sign, Barretta says, as well as one that's protective of their loved ones. That's why they often settle down with Pisces, who also values feeling safe and protected, leading to a marriage that feels secure for both signs. Libra can also be a great partner, since they both share a desire for the finer things in life, Barretta says. But more importantly, Libra and Leo help balance each other out. Leo loves doing all the talking and getting all the attention, while Libra is often indecisive and is cool with taking a step back.
They mesh well together since they won't step on each other's toes.
If a Virgo has been through tough relationships in the past , and is looking for someone to help them feel secure going forward, they may be happiest with Taurus. Not only is this sign down for deep commitment , Phoenix says, but they're also a great match for an enduring love life. When it comes to someone who might be able to help Virgo reach their goals, though, they might find a stronger connection with Capricorn.
They might not make for the most exciting match, since both are homebodies and hard workers.
But it's something they appreciate in each other, and can lead to a solid, stable connection. All they'll have to do to ensure they don't get bored is plan the occasional date night, or plan a special evening at home, and they'll both be happy.
Libra is a charming sign, Barretta says, as well as one that's fair-minded and indecisive. No one understands them better than Taurus, who has a very similar mind. In a long-term relationship, they do what they can to enjoy themselves and appreciate the finer things in life, she says, and can often be found happily lazing around their home. That said, Libra can also be really happy with an Aries, since they're strong decision makers, Barretta says. Libra's charming personality also helps balance out Aries brash nature, she says, which can result in them being quite the balanced couple.
For Libra and Aries to make it last, they'll have to pay attention to each other's extremes.
If Libra is being too lazy, or Aries is being too over the top, they have to be willing to call that out and talk about it, so that no one feels held back or overwhelmed. Scorpio is psychic, private, intense, secretive, and have quite the detective mind, Barretta says, so they're happiest with a partner who isn't intimidated by that. Then there's Scorpio and Virgo. But they also have fun, deep conversations, too, which keeps the spark alive.
