III. The Not So Happy Couples
1. Scorpio + Scorpio:
Almost more than any other sign in the Zodiac, Scorpio needs someone to complement them — not replicate them. There’s a reason you never hear a Scorpio say “I married my best friend!” Another Scorpio will put Scorpio on the defensive and they won’t be able to feel comfortable enough to open up and do any of the “loving” aspects of a relationship.
2. Taurus + Gemini:
A Taurus prizes loyalty and stability above all else, which feels stifling to any Gemini they date. Similarly, a Taurus finds Gemini’s was chaotic and unpredictable. These signs stress each other out!
3. Cancer + Aquarius:
On paper, this pairing should do well, but it often feels like something here won’t “click”. The two people understand each other’s needs, but they don’t move naturally together. The Aquarius will seem too removed from their body and emotions to the Cancer, and the Cancer will seem too needy and emotional for the Aquarius.
4. Gemini + Scorpio:
This pair is almost too alike that they don’t work. They each can be really stubborn and cold. They never think they are wrong and struggle in owning up to it when they are. Their fights are always very intense. While they each have an acid tongue they tend to say things they later regret.
5. Leo + Leo:
The biggest problem for a Leo dating another Leo is that they both want to be the star. It will be hard for them to find balance as a couple and make sure both people’s needs are being met.
6. Aries + Pisces:
This combination isn’t the strongest as they struggle in communication. A Pisces might drop hints about what they want and need but they will never straight up say it. An Aries needs that clarity which they don’t get. In a relationship with a Pisces one has to be able to read people very well but with an Aries, they seem to overlook that. This couple fails because each person just can’t figure out or fake being what the other person needs.
7. Aquarius + Pisces:
This combination is never one that is boring. This couple goes from one extreme to the other and they struggle to find a normal balance together. A Pisces constantly seeking love while an Aquarius is naturally distant. And sometimes that works but other times a Pisces struggle with trust issues and that’s when the two fight. When you’re constantly doubting someone it’s never going to work out.
8. Aries + Taurus:
An Aries will be annoyed that homebody Taurus likes to relax more than adventure out into the world, and the Taurus will be annoyed that they aren’t in control of the relationship. These two have both different values and different personalities, so it’s hard for them to get too close and feel like they have a real connection.
9. Libra + Capricorn:
Capricorn is a sign that can balance out a lot of signs like Gemini, Sag, Aries, and Leo but they can also bring out the worst in other signs like Taurus and Libra who are a bit prone to materialism, to begin with. The relationship will be perfectly harmonious and they won’t fight, it’s just that as a partner they don’t make each other better people.
10. Taurus + Leo:
Jealousy will be a big problem in this relationship, as a Taurus will never be comfortable with Leo’s need for attention. The Taurus will never feel like they are able to relax and the Leo will feel like they are constantly walking on eggshells.
11. Aries + Capricorn:
There’s not a lot that Aries and Capricorn have in common, and both types aren’t the kind of person to slow their roll for someone else. Capricorn is more conservative and wants to protect what they put out into the world more than Aries look-before-you-leap nature allows them to. Aries’ least favorite thing in the world is feeling like someone is holding them back, so they’ll struggle with Capricorn trying to control them.
12. Taurus + Aquarius: This is an unlikely pairing of people who see the world very differently. Aquarians wacky ideas can feel exhausting for the Taurus, while the Taurus can feel too boring for the Aquarius.
