Sun Sign Romantic Compatibility
One of the main reasons that people turn to astrology is to try to divine who the love of their life will be. If you aren't compatible astrologically, the chances are good that you might be a good match for now, but not for life.
Keep in mind that all compatibility observations are made from sun signs, and a true match can only really be discovered if you have a proper chart done. General sun sign compatibility is useful if you have just met someone and you want a general idea of where the relationship is going.
Those born under the sign of the ram are very ambitious and tenacious. Their extreme focus on their careers can often lead to a neglect of their loved ones, and they need someone who can manage this sort of situation easily. They are passionate and ardent lovers, but they can be flighty in their passions. They love change and this often nips the idea of a long-term relationship in the bud.
If you can stick it out with an Aries, they will bring excitement and variation to your life. They may also be prone to infidelity. Aries tend to do well with either equally bold signs or submissive signs.
Aries, Leo, Gemini, Sagittarius, and Aquarius
Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn
The Taurus is the stereotypical dependable mate. They are stable, balanced, and conservative. Having an aversion to debt, Taurus will try to keep the family accounts stable and will most definitely freak out about money at some point in your relationship. They are also not given to experimentation or straying too far from the homefront.

Leo, Sagittarius, Aquarius
Geminis are chameleons who will change their needs to match those of their partners. As such they make excellent pairings with the more "dominant" signs such as Aries and Leo, but fail with partners who may need their help in finding a sense of direction. While Geminis are hardly submissive, they are eager to please and love without reserve. Their main drawback is the "oh, look, a butterfly" mentality - if you are not present in their area of experience, you will soon fall out of favor.
Geminis are also notoriously hard to read and you'll need to be blunt and tell them how you feel about them in order for them to clue in. While extremely intelligent and capable, Geminis have a habit of missing what is in front of them.
Aries, Leo, Libra, Aquarius
Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces
The romantic personality of the Cancer is probably best illustrated by the most famous of them all - Henry VIII. When they are in love, they are in love completely and irrevocably. When they feel slighted or hurt, they are more likely to kick you to the curb than they are to try and resolve the situation. Cancer is best with more submissive signs like Taurus and Pisces, and will absolutely not mesh well with any fire sign. Both tough and sentimental at the same time, Cancers will more than make up for any faults they possess through ardent passion and a taste for the flamboyant that will leave any partner they have reeling.
Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Aries, Libra, Sagittarius
Leos have a reputation for loyalty and extremely loving natures; they are also self-centered. They will not notice if you come home sulking after a hard day at the office - you will need to be blunt with them about your emotions as Leos are not ones for subtlety. Leos have a habit of making the object of their affections feel like they are the most important people in the world - besides Leo. You should also be prepared for a wild ride in life with Leo - they are ambitious and will move heaven and earth to be successful, sometimes at the expense of home and family.
Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius
Taurus, Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces
There is a reason that this sign is represented by a young female. As Taurus is the stereotype of the dependable male in a relationship, Virgo generally fits the stereotype of the dependable female. Virgo males are often regarded as effeminate even when they are not, but it is these qualities which often make them attractive to women. Virgos are charming, practical, and infinitely interested in the happiness of people around them, especially their mates.
Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn
Aries, Sagittarius, Aquarius
Libras are very fair and even handed in all matters, especially those to do with their relationships. Libras are very self-sacrificing and will often concede rather than have an argument with their spouse. Libras can also be very flirtatious and shallow, and may be a bit more extravagant than they should be at times.
Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius
Cancer, Capricorn, Pisces
Scorps are known for one thing - sex. This is their overriding reason for being. In order to be with a Scorpio, you must have more than a passing interest in carnal matters. They are also deeply sensitive and emotional, without being very communicative about it. They are also deeply gifted and spiritual, and will need room to develop their talents in a relationship.
Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, Pisces, Scorpio
Gemini, Leo, Aquarius
The Sag has a great outlook on life and is extremely positive - especially when it comes to love and relationships. They will see the good in their mate to the exclusion of all faults. While they make very solid life mates, they have a need to always be independent which must be respected in order to maintain a successful relationship with them.
Aries, Leo, Libra, Aquarius
Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Pisces
Stable and serious, a Capricorn is a very uncomplicated mate without a lot of hang-ups. They are not quick to trust, but when they do they will stick by that partner permanently. They may be given to paranoia when it comes to their partner, and need constant reassurance from their partners.
Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces
Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra
The Aquarian is very discriminating and has ideals for both themselves and their partners. They are very charismatic, and attract people to them constantly. Life mates will have to deal with a very enigmatic and mutable personality, but will reap the reward of extreme loyalty.
Aries, Gemini, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius
Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, Virgo
Pisces is a very flamboyant sign, and is almost completely ruled by emotion. As such, a relationship with a Pisces is an all-consuming experience that you need to be prepared to devote some time to. They will reward you with undying loyalty and showers of affection, but are also easily hurt and angered.
Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces
Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius
