34) Cancer + Leo:
Cancer won’t immediately enjoy playing second fiddle to Leo, not because they crave the spotlight for themselves but because they view Leo’s vain ways as inauthentic or even shallow. This is a small problem in the grand scheme of life and relationships and one that’s easily gotten over once you know someone well. There’s potential for real balance here, as the signs are different enough that they can truly support and complement each other.
35) Cancer + Sagittarius:
It’s hard to see why these two signs would get together as they don’t have similar values or personalities — but they also are both laid back and like to avoid conflict, so they don’t fight a lot as a couple. With the right two people, this could be an easy relationship celebrating the lighter side of Cancer and the deeper side of Sag.
36) Virgo + Virgo:
Virgo gets along well with another Virgo, but they’d do better with someone who complements them. With another Virgo, they tend to stick in their conservative little life instead of exploring the world or trying anything new. In the end, they may feel they have settled.
37) Gemini + Capricorn:
This couple can make it work even though they aren’t naturally compatible. Gemini can draw Capricorn out of their conservative shell, and Capricorn can provide the structure Gemini needs in order to truly thrive. As long as they are patient with each other and their differences, they can make a great couple.
38) Leo + Scorpio:
In a relationship, Leo needs to be in the spotlight and the Gemini does let them have it. While a Scorpio knows when to fight their battles and chooses them wisely, the biggest issue this pair has is a fight for power in the relationship.
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.
