If you're big into astrology, you're constantly looking into which signs match up with yours. You know, like which zodiac signs will make the best of friends (and only friends)? Or which one will give you the most passionate mate? Who will you clash with? And who should you run far away from?
There are many questions we all ask to find that someone special in our lives (be a friend or a significant other) and turn to the stars to get them. Whether astrology is a real thing or not, many people swear by it or are at least curious as to how it works. And it makes sense, really.
We could all use a little help in the love department every now and then, so why not see what the stars tell? If you're interested in learning which zodiac sign you should date, you're in luck. We've compiled a list of the 12 astrological signs that make the absolute best couples.
1. Aries & Aquarius
There's never a dull moment between an Aries and Aquarius, which makes their relationship extremely exciting. Both signs are insanely adventurous so they're always up for anything — in and out of the bedroom. They enjoy trying new things and make sure to have a good time in the process. They especially love doing things together as a team.
While other couples might grow tired of one another, these two stay strong and always enjoy being in each other's company. But they both know the importance of hanging out with friends and having some solo time, too.
2. Taurus & Cancer
Taurus and Cancer seriously get each other. These two zodiac signs work well with one another because they hold a tight connection both physically and emotionally. They both understand each other well inside and out, which helps allow their bond to ignite even more as the relationship grows.
There's also a great appreciation for one another, as both signs value who the other is and what they have to offer. This couple is powerful because they know how to complement the other with ease, making for a long lasting love that's hard to come by.
3. Gemini & Aquarius
A Gemini and Aquarius have a crazy mental and emotional connection. They get each other to the fullest, like they have known one another for years even if it's only been months (or weeks). These two signs are also big on creativity and ideas, which they like to bounce off each other constantly: "Should we go to the Rocky Mountains tomorrow?" "Let's have frog legs for dinner!"
And while they are very in tune with one another and enjoy spending as much time together as possible, they also enjoy their independence. But this doesn't seem to bother the relationship, since they both understand the importance of spending time apart to make the heart grow fonder.
4. Cancer & Pisces
Cancer and Pisces are two cool water signs and instinctively have one massive cosmic connection. They work well together because each one knows just who the other is and they are proud of that. These signs also have a very strong sense of themselves which makes them easily able to form a solid bond that can last.
To make things even better, they have very compatible individual traits that mesh well together. Pisces is all about connection with others, while Cancer is devoted to nurturing those around them, which allows the two to work well. The end results is a deep, mental connection parallel that isn't easily taken away.
5. Leo & Sagittarius
The passion is high between Leo and Sagittarius, as both signs both enjoy life and love that the other feels the same. They are both passionate about what they want out of this world and are extremely encouraging toward the other to achieve any goal or dream. Both are fire signs and have a profound understanding of the other which helps them to get along so easily.
This is the couple that's so fun, everyone flocks to be around them. You know the type? The exact couple you have wanted to be for years. The passion these two signs have for life, love and each other is incredibly intoxicating.
6. Virgo & Taurus
As both are earth signs, Virgo and Taurus really hit it off. They are both completely practical in their everyday lives and easy going, which helps make their relationship cool, calm and collected. These two zodiac signs are also honest and sincere, which makes them incredible people to get close to, especially in a serious, long-term relationship.
You won't find two other signs as devoted to each other like Virgo and Taurus, because they not only hold a lot of integrity for one another, but also have the same characteristics and values. This allows them to truly understand one another to the fullest.
7. Libra & Gemini
A relationship between a Libra and Gemini is all about a strong intellectual connection. Both are air signs and are deep into mental stimulation. A Libra and Gemini are extremely intelligent and into their own spirituality. The mind is a very interesting and sexy thing to them, and they enjoy learning more about it as time goes on.
These signs also provide a great understanding and appreciation for the other, which makes them an excellent match. And as far as harmony goes, they know how to work it. A couple like this enjoys keeping the peace within their relationship by offering friendship, knowledge, and understanding to one another.
8. Scorpio & Cancer
Sometimes having two intense people in a relationship doesn't work. However, not if one person is a Scorpio and the other is a Cancer. These two water signs are intense when it comes to emotions, but that only seems to make them even more compatible.
Scorpio and Cancer feed off each other's passion, which allows them to work well when paired. They can help balance each other out to create unity within the two, making them a stronger one. These zodiac signs are deeply devoted to one another and provide a terrific support system. Both share very similar morals and are caring toward each other and those around them.
9. Sagittarius & Aries
Sagittarius and Aries are both fire signs, so you can expect some serious fiery passion between the two, making for a dynamite pair. They both have insane amounts of energy to bring into the relationship which only grows stronger as the relationship continues to blossom. And they both appreciate each other's wild enthusiasm for the other person and the life around them.
While in some instances opposites attract, these two signs show that being more alike makes them even closer. This is a couple that can power through anything life brings their way, and they will do it together with some serious pep in their step.
10. Capricorn & Taurus
There's a reason these two signs have been reported to have the most chemistry than any of the other astrological signs. Capricorn and Taurus have something most only daydream about: endless love. These two lovebirds will be together forever and actual enjoy one another's company to the end.
The reason their bond is so tight is because they hold the sincerest respect and love for each other that only true soul mates can offer. Their admiration for the other is almost unnerving, but incredibly touching, making the rest of us crave the same in our own lives.
11. Aquarius & Gemini
Aquarius and Gemini are both air signs that have a killer psychological connection. And it goes deep — really deep. Like finishing each other's sentences and that whole bit. Their relationship is almost mystical because it's one no one else can comprehend. After all, only they know what's going on in their heads, and each other's.
They get what works for them and don't care that others might not see it. And while both of these signs have a strong sense of individuality, they don't let it hurt their relationship. In fact, it only strengthens it. But all in all, these two choose to stride through life walking arm-in-arm because they'd rather be together than apart.
12. Pisces & Scorpio
Another pair that's very intuitive to one another is Pisces and Scorpio. These two zodiac signs can get into each other's minds and know what they are thinking almost as good as if they were thinking it themselves. But they aren't just into intellect; they both have a hunger to understand the other's body and soul, and learn what makes the other person tick.
They want to know everything about the other because they hold such a high respect for the other sign. The passion is sky high with this couple and they aren't afraid of being romantic, no matter how mushy and over-the-top.
