Have you ever felt like someone understands you immediately before you have even really gotten to know each other? Is there a person who is very different from you, but balances you perfectly? If one of these things has happened to you, you might have found your zodiac sign soulmate.

While determining your soulmate requires more than just the knowledge of your Sun Sign, there are certain zodiac signs that naturally go together. There are two main categories of such signs. One category of such zodiac sign soulmates includes the signs that are similar and have an intuitive understanding of each other. The other category includes the signs that are opposite. Opposite signs provide balance and complement each other. In an opposite relationship, you will have the sense that your partner is your “other half.”

With this in mind, let us look at the zodiac sign soulmates of each category.

Birds of a Feather Flock Together

The first category of zodiac sign soulmates are signs that are similar to each other. These are signs of the same element. There are four elements that zodiac signs can belong to, Fire, Earth, Air, and Water, and each element has three signs. Signs of the same element want and need similar things in a relationship. They understand each other intuitively, and there is very little true conflict between these signs. If you are in a relationship with a person of the same element, the relationship will be one of natural harmony. Below are the signs in each of the four elements.

Fire

Fire Signs are active and passionate. They like to be busy all of the time, and they like to go on adventures and take risks. They are not always the most sensitive of people, and they can be difficult for some of the more tender-hearted signs to live with. Yet, when they have another Fire Sign to be with, they come to life, excited to have found someone who can keep up with their pace. To an outside observer, they may seem like they are fighting all of the time, but this is just how Fire likes to interact with others. No matter how volatile their relationship seems, they are usually both getting a great deal of enjoyment out of their sparring matches.

The Fire Signs are:

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Aries is the bold warrior, who loves a good fight. Aries is courageous and hot-tempered. Natives of this sign are attracted to strength and will only fall in love with someone they can respect. They do not respect weakness.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leo is the king (or queen) of the zodiac. This is the most steady and stable of the Fire Signs, but its natives still enjoy a good adventure from time to time. It is important for Leo to be able to show courage, and it is just as important for them to be admired for it.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Of the Fire Signs, Sagittarius is the most easy-going, but this sign still becomes restless quite easily. Natives of this sign need freedom, and they do not want to stay in any one place for any length of time. They do not mind companionship, though, so long as the other person does not hold them back.

Earth

The Earth Signs are practical and sensible. In relationships, they need and desire security above all else. For Earth Signs, the financial and material aspects of a relationship are as important, if not more so, than the emotional and romantic ones. Don’t let this fool you though. Earth Signs are very sensual, and they greatly enjoy the physical pleasures of the bedroom. When two Earth Signs get together, they have a calm relationship, and they are usually quite successful in building a home and a substantial nest egg together.

The Earth Signs are:

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus is a quiet sign that enjoys creature comforts. This sign enjoys comfort, food, and sex. Taurus natives generally do not like to go anywhere, but they can be persuaded to take a walk in the countryside or a beautiful garden. Disliking change of any sort, Taurus is slow to enter into relationships, but once they do, they rarely end them.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

With a sharp intelligence and a keen eye for detail, Virgo natives sometimes have a difficult time in relationships. On the other hand, Virgo can idolize a partner and generally wants to find ways to be helpful to those they care about. They are more likely to show their love by doing practical things for their partner than they are by speaking romantic words of love.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

While all Earth Signs are pragmatic, Capricorn’s feet are firmly planted on the ground. This sign skillfully navigates the material world with ease. A Capricorn native will not marry only for love but is a devoted and stable partner when they do settle down.

Air

The Air Signs are intellectual and curious. For them, the most important thing in a relationship is good communication. They are attracted to intelligence in a partner above all other traits. Air Signs like to have an active social life, which can make it hard for them if they have a jealous partner who does not understand their nature. When two Air Signs get together, life is a constant conversation, and they tend to host or attend many parties and social events. Their home is usually filled with books, and they enjoy learning things together.

The Air Signs are:

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Gemini natives are talkative and friendly. They enjoy interacting with many different people and learning about many different things. This sign cannot abide boredom, if natives of this sign do not have something to hold their interest and attention, they wander off and find something else to do.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Libra is the perfect diplomat. This sign values courtesy and harmony above all other considerations, even honesty. Because Libra is so concerned about having good manners, it can be easy to underestimate their intelligence. Yet, underneath the polite mask, Libra natives are very observant. Indeed, they often know quite a bit because people of all walks of life talk to them.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Aquarius thrives on being unusual and unconventional. Like all Air Signs, Aquarius loves to talk to many different people and listen to many different ideas. On the other hand, Aquarius rarely initiates conversation. Instead, these natives wait for others to come to them.

Water

Water Signs are passionate and emotional. They usually have powerful intuitions and many of them are psychic. When they enter into a partnership, they want to bond heart, body, mind, and soul. Casual relationships are difficult for Water Signs because they form deep bonds quickly and easily. This means that they run a real risk of getting hurt, particularly with natives of the other elemental groups. When natives of two Water Signs become a couple, they are able to understand each other in a way that most other signs cannot.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Cancer is the sign of the nurturer and the caregiver. More than anything else, this sign desires a family and makes a loving and devoted parent. They are often a bit shy, particularly when it comes to strangers, but once they warm up to someone, they are warm, generous, and giving.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Scorpio has a reputation for being sexy, mysterious, and perhaps even a little dangerous. This reputation is not entirely deserved, but Scorpio natives are intense, rarely doing anything half-way. Scorpio natives crave deep connections with others, and casual or shallow relationships are quite unsatisfying to them.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Pisces is a deeply spiritual sign. Pisces love fully and completely, and they are capable of great sacrifices for the one that they love. They tend not to worry as much about the material world, and sometimes they get a bit lost and flustered in it. They are extremely creative and often have artistic ability.

Opposites Attract

Opposites Attract

Zodiac sign soulmates of the same element have harmonious and pleasant relationships. There is another type of zodiac sign soulmate combination in which the relationship is much more tense. On the other hand, what these combinations lack in harmony, they more than make up for in chemistry. These are the signs that are opposite each other. Opposite sign pairs are couples that are perfectly balanced. Each person has the qualities that the other lacks.

Below are the opposite sign pairs:

Aries (March 21 – April 19) & Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Aries is the warrior and Libra is the diplomat. Aries will say what is on their mind without thinking about who it will upset, and Libra will be able to smooth things over and soothe hurt feelings. Libra can have trouble standing up for themselves, but Aries will be happy to come to their defense.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20) & Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

This is probably the most sensual pair in the zodiac. Taurus enjoys pleasure and physicality, and Scorpio brings their deep passionate nature to the mix. Taurus can provide calm practicality to ease Scorpio’s stormy emotions, and Scorpio can bring excitement into Taurus’ life.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20) & Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

At first glance, these Gemini and Sagittarius can seem very similar, and it can be hard to see how they are opposites. They both enjoy the novel, and neither can abide boredom. Yet, Gemini prefers intellectual challenges while Sagittarius needs far more physical activity. Still, they are well-matched and can keep each other entertained.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22) & Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

These two signs are perfectly matched when it comes to building a household together. Regardless of the gender of each of the partners, the Cancer native will be more suited to keeping the house and caring for the children, and Capricorn will do well as the primary breadwinner.

Leo (July 23 – August 22) & Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

It is not difficult to see how these signs are opposite. A Leo native wants to be admired and loved by all, and an Aquarius native is rarely concerned about what others think. It is harder to see how they would be attracted to one another. Yet, Leo provides interest and entertainment for Aquarius, and Aquarius is someone who will always tell Leo the truth.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22) & Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

These signs are very good for one another. Virgo can provide the practical attention to detail that Pisces can struggle with. In turn, Pisces can help Virgo relax and let go of this sign’s constant need for perfection. This pair can make a tender and loving couple.
