For some people, the predictions in their astrological forecast are as solid to them as any scientific evidence out there. For others, cosmic charts and palm readings fall under the umbrella of interesting, but not literal, information. Regardless of where you place yourself on the spectrum of spectral fascination, seeing what the stars supposedly have in store for you can be quite fun. Most commonly, people look to the skies for answers about their love life. That's why you might want to know what zodiac signs are most compatible for a lasting marriage.
Even if you're not currently seeing someone, a bit of cosmic curiosity in regard to romance never hurt anyone. If you are, however, in a committed relationship, it could be helpful to know just how compatible you and your potential partner could be. If you're not exactly sure what it means to be compatible when it comes to the zodiac, there's a rather simple explanation. "In astrology, the term 'compatible' means a harmonious energy in the relationship," millennial astrologer Valerie Mesa tells Romper.
So will you and your lover ignite a lasting flame of passion or fizzle out after a few sparks? Check out what these astrologers have to say about which zodiac signs are considered to be the most compatible for a lasting marriage.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
"Signs with the fire element find harmony in air signs," Mesa tells Romper. "Fire sign Aries’ bold personality and assertiveness sweeps air sign Libra right off their feet." Just like in real life, you need air to create a roaring fire.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
"Taurus and Scorpio are the best matches as they usually have a strong attraction," psychic Amira Celon tells Romper. "They are opposite signs, so they often start where the other finishes like a continuous line which makes them more compatible." Perhaps that "better half" saying has some merit.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
"Considering Gemini is one to make a fuss about the details and Sagittarius is solely focused on the bigger picture, some assume this isn’t a match," Mesa says. "In reality, these two can rule the world together." Sometimes being compatible can mean that you and your partner complement each other.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
"Cancer and Pisces willingly swim through each other’s deepest psyche and discover a mutual ocean of emotions," Mesa tells Romper. "The combination of these two water signs can bring energy healing and abundance." Knowing that your partner really gets you is key to a lasting relationship.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
"Earth sign Virgo works well with water signs Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces," Furiate says. As these astrologers have pointed out, when elements complement each other in nature, they're also compatible in love.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
"Libra’s love for harmony brings peace to hotheaded Aries," Mesa says. "Yin and yang, they are each other’s mirror and this combination can be textbook perfect." With a Libra and Aries relationship, the scales are truly balanced.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
"Scorpio and Taurus are both focused on financial and emotional security," Celon says. "Therefore like to go all the way and deep into a committed relationship." Having a solid foundation is vital when building a relationship.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
"Sagittarius and Gemini are polar opposites, but that's just what the doctor ordered," Mesa says. "Sagittarius is ruled by optimistic Jupiter and Gemini is ruled by Mercury the messenger, curious and gifted conversationalists." Having adventurousness in common helps smooth out any bumps along the road.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
"Two Earth signs, Capricorn and Taurus, have much in common, being of the same element," Furiate tells Romper. When you're with someone who cares about the same things you do, it can be a solid fit.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
"Both Aquarius and Leo only tend to marry when they really want to have children," Celon says. "These are opposite signs, but this makes them flow together." It's always a good idea to make sure you're on the same page about major life events.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)
"Pisces and Cancer are sister signs of the same element and the most emotional signs in the zodiac," Mesa tells Romper. "Sensitive and empathetic, this match is more than compatible." It makes sense that both of these signs have aquatic mascots and get along swimmingly.
