Have you ever heard the phrase 'it was written in the stars'? When it comes to your relationship with your partner or potential love interest, how compatible you are and how successful your relationship is destined to be literally is written in the stars thanks to star sign compatibility.
The Zodiac signs and elements tell us a lot about our personalities, lives, and relationships. Zodiac compatibility is an important part of relationships; two zodiac signs with very different personalities and values will most likely clash and not make a good match.
There are 12 signs in the Zodiac, each with their own specific personality traits, strengths, and weaknesses.
These 12 signs also belong to one of four spiritual elements: Earth, Air, Fire, and Water.
These elements all contain their own energies and influences over the personalities of those born under them. These traits and influences can greatly impact the potential compatibility of two people in a relationship, and can tell us how likely or unlikely that relationship is to succeed.
The Earth signs are Taurus, Capricorn and Virgo, and as their element suggests, these signs are all very solid, practical and reliable. They are very loyal and make dependable friends and partners, but can be very emotional when things go wrong.
The Air signs of Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius are very social and great communicators. They are usually intellectual and love a discussion or debate. They are passionate about their relationships, but can sometimes be very shallow.
As their element suggests, the three Fire signs - Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius - are very passionate and energetic. They make great leaders and fiercely loyal friends and lovers, but unfortunately have quick tempers. However, they forgive just as easily.
Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces make up the three Water signs. These three signs are incredibly emotional and often mysterious. They are very affectionate and love intimacy. However, their mysteriousness causes them to be secretive, which can cause issues in relationships.
