Astrological insights into your romantic future can be a great way to bring clarity into your dating life. It can even present and dissect how a relationship between your sign and any other on the astrological wheel would be in a hypothetical relationship.

Knowing what you could be getting into ahead of time can set you up for success, as you’ll be better able to see what issues are popping up before they even come to fruition. This becomes even more applicable if you’re dating someone of the same sign, as you’ll already have a heightened level of understanding paired with your zodiac knowledge.

If you’re looking for more information on your life and your individual sign, then you’ll need your own zodiac reading. We’re each on our own unique path and what some struggle with this season, might not be applicable to you too.

Two Of A Kind

Using your sign to help guide your love life is nothing new. People turn to their astrological placements, namely their sun sign, for advice in all areas of life, but using it to better analyze potential partners is perhaps its most common use.

Among all the astrological pairings, perhaps the rarest is finding someone of the same sign that you feel romantically connected to. Dating someone of the same sun sign can bring a certain level of understanding that you wouldn’t have with other signs, but each matchup also comes with its unique challenges.


An Aries-Aries relationship is a firey one indeed. As two hot-headed, big personalities come together, there will be a tendency to clash with one another. None of this is inherently bad though! Two lively people who challenge one another to think differently and make each other see things differently can be very powerful together.

All that said, this relationship will still have a penchant for spats, arguments, and fights, however you word it or however far it escalates. To remain stable and avoid these debates delving into a toxic territory, make sure you’re always maintaining open communication and, as the sage advice goes, never going to bed angry,


Tauruses are very pragmatic and can get a lot accomplished once they set their mind on the right track, and of course, this doubles once two of them enter a relationship together. They’re a very productive couple who work well together to accomplish both joint and individual goals. They’re very supportive of one another and keep things grounded.

However, and perhaps predictably, you’re both incredibly stubborn. Once you butt heads, you’ll be locked in combat for a while, as no matter how much you love one another, you’ll still find it hard to give your partner even an inch when it comes to a dispute. Luckily, this tends to dissipate with time as Taurus doesn’t tend to be as feisty as Aries, for example.


With Gemini being the twin sign, having two of them in a relationship together is naturally a great match! Well, in some aspects. Dating Geminis will be incredibly in tune with one another, so much so that it might freak out onlookers as they’ll appear near-psychic. They’re adaptable and hold a strong core.

However, they can be… tumultuous, let’s say. Gemini is an energetic sign, always on the move, always looking for the next thing to entertain themselves with. Because both of you want that exciting social life and to soak up every opportunity that comes your way, you may unknowingly neglect the home life aspect of a relationship, with neither of you remaining still long enough to plant roots for the future.


As Cancers already have a penchant for the romantic, two of them coupling up is actually quite lovely! They’re one of the better same-sign matches for this reason. They’re caring, nurturing, great at communicating, and naturally affectionate. Two Cancers really are a picture-perfect couple when it comes to love in its purest forms.

Sometimes that loving aspect can go a little too far though. One or both of you might start to become overly doting, or a little too cautious, and it starts to feel more like parenting than it does dating as you find yourself extremely worried about how the other is feeling all of the time.


Two Leos is another spirited pairing! Definitely fun, always up for an adventure together, but both sides will require a lot of attention to remain at their optimal level, and balancing that with giving the attention every so often might be a bit tricky at first.

Once that levels itself out though, you’ll find yourself in a very passionate, quick-paced relationship, where deep connections are formed quickly. Paired Leos hold a lot of respect for their partner too, meaning any tensions are usually worked out maturely.


A Virgo-Virgo relationship is similar to Taurus in that they’re both extremely efficient, dedicated, and when working together, can accomplish just about anything they decide they want to tackle as a couple. They’re great at setting up routines that work well with their schedules and individual personalities, creating a very balanced relationship.

Things can start to become a little tense when the two Virgos engage in their favorite pastime: overanalyzing. Nobody wants to think badly about their partner, but complaints pop up from time to time, and dual Virgos will fixate on those things about their significant other and try to subtly fix them themselves rather than actually communicate the issue.


Libras are very good at picking up on what their partner is feeling, so the two of them together make for a very understanding relationship where all feelings are laid out on the table. They’re also incredible at striking balance in many areas of life, such as division of work or personal responsibility, so rarely will arguments arise due to any sense of unfairness.

However, Libras do tend to be a little slow to open up. Even with two in a relationship with one another, they may struggle to move beyond superficial stages and appearances, which will eventually cause frustrations to rise when one half eventually wants more.


Scorpio and Scorpio make for an exciting relationship, not to mention an attractive one to outsiders. They have that palpable passion, that natural intrigue, they’re two charmers who have wrapped themselves around one another, an unmatched energy compared to any other dual pairing on this list.

That comes with its caveats, though, as that type of energy is prone to feelings of jealousy or suspicion leaning in, and those discussions tend not to go over well with Scorpios. Scorpios are also not the best at delving into the deeper side of their emotions, meaning your relationship will lack a certain depth needed for anything long-term unless you’re willing to break out of your comfort zone a bit.


Woo! Sagittarius duos are extremely fun-loving, date-focused, and adventure-loving. They’re always raring to get up and out and bring their partner along with them on joint journeys that have them experiencing much of what the world has to offer. They have wonderful, deep conversations with one another and are excellent at understanding each other’s nuanced viewpoints.

Sagittarius can kind of go one of two ways when it comes to commitment, though. Some prefer to keep it casual and play things loose, while others want true commitment. If you wind up with one of each in a relationship, that’ll only spell trouble in the long run, so make sure to communicate your desires early on.


Capricorns are very much realists, and they tend to go into any relationship with a good head on their shoulders about it, so, of course, this goes doubly if the relationship consists of two Capricorns. They remain grounded throughout troubles and are keen on knowing who their partner really is beneath the surface.

Capricorns absolutely have the ability to become fiercely competitive though, always striving for status. They’re not necessarily looking to overpower their partner, but they like having the upper hand, so two forces each striving to think of themselves as one step above can lead to endless fights.


You’ll likely end up with something very beautiful when you put two Aquarius suns in a relationship together. They’re both creative types, relishing in the beauty of art, expression, and emotion. Well, other peoples’ emotions, anyway. Their own, not so much.

It’s not that they don’t comprehend their own emotions, they just don’t like sharing them too often. They prefer to keep things light and airy as not to dampen anybody’s mood. That just won’t fly in a relationship though, as a couple who’s unable to speak honestly with one another is bound to go nowhere.


A Pisces pairing makes for a very dreamy couple—in both an aesthetic sense and literal sense—with how they interact with one another. They’ll spend hours fantasizing about their futures together, all that could come their way and what they could grow into, relishing in lofty ideas they know have no realistic chance of happening. It’s fun, though, and there’s nothing wrong with enjoying some dreaming!

So long as you remember to come back to Earth eventually. Every so often, Pisces will have to take serious stock of what’s around them, and that includes their partner. By spending so much time with their head in the clouds, they might have missed some serious red flags, ones they can’t afford to continue ignoring.

Moment To Moment

At the end of the day, astrological dating is mainly based on how two people interact with one another and how well they can communicate and build upon each other’s strengths. Although it helps to have insight into someone’s zodiac sign, ultimately, it is about finding someone you truly love and trust, no matter what their star sign may be.

Whether it be someone of the same zodiac sign or different, it all boils down to who makes the best match for you, and that’s something you’ll only be able to know when you’re in the moment!

In any relationship, always take stock of your feelings and ask yourself: does this person make you love yourself more? Do you want to grow old with them?
