Is Dating the Same Sign As You a Good Idea?
Dating and committing to a relationship with someone who has the same zodiac sign can be a match made in heaven or the making for hell on earth. And yes, even though you are individuals, some of your best and worst qualities will be reflected in your partner.
Scroll below to find out if your same zodiac sign compatibility will result in a relationship made for marriage, or if you should avoid an intimate relationship with the same zodiac sign at all costs.
Aries with an Aries
When two fire signs meet, prepare for fireworks (in a good and bad way)! Aries partners can be incompatible if they constantly but heads with each other, struggling for power. However, if you let each others’ impulses inspire you, the partnership can work in both your favors.
Taurus with a Taurus
A Taurus pair can be quite compatible, as both tend to have a homebody nature. But even better? These two Earth signs represent stability when joined. Look out for arguments that will disrupt that stability though, most likely, about money or goals.
Gemini with a Gemini
A fling between two Gemini signs can be a whirlwind of passionate pillow talk and adventure. Watch out though: The long-term compatibility is unlikely. With no stable sign to tie the relationship down, the two are likely to drift apart when one or the other gets bored.
Cancer with a Cancer
The emotional cup can run over in a Cancer relationship. A pair of Cancers can be compatible only if they each finally learn to appreciate having a sensitive partner. And unfortunately, when these relationships fail, they often end with a tearful blowout.
Leo with a Leo
A relationship between two Leos can be incompatible simply because one or the other feels the need to take the lead at all times. And while this power can be traded back and forth for a bit, true equality is a rare occurance with this explosive combination.
Virgo with a Virgo
Two Virgos can be a match made in heaven. Each of you has high expectations of the other and while this can sometimes lead to strife, it more often leads to the two helping each other become better people.
Libra with a Libra
A Libra pair can only work if they both learn to pick their battles. Ironically, each one desires harmony, and will, at times, either let resentment fester rather than argue, or pick at every nagging detail. Compatibility depends on complete awareness of this trait.

Scorpio with a Scorpio
Although two Scorpios can fall for each other hard and quick, the relationship might be incompatible from the start, fraught with frequent fights and emotional upheaval. The two can make it work, as long as the passionate differences between them are appreciated.
Sagittarius with a Sagittarius
Typically, two Sagittarius people are difficult to stay together in a relationship simply because each is competitive and often fears the other is infringing on his or her freedom. Luckily, the two are honest with each other, which can mitigate the natural incompatibility.
Capricorn with a Capricorn
Since each partner understands each other’s needs for a life outside of the relationship, the Capricorn with a Capricorn relationship can last for a long time. Respectful of each other’s work and private time, Capricorn couples are able to form a deep bond of shared values.
Aquarius with an Aquarius
While two Aquarius people can make very compatible friends that encourage each other to explore individual pursuits, when partnering in a relationship, the self-centered nature of each individual can compromise the union. Unless they can tackle life together, they will end up ignoring the emotional aspects of the relationship until it’s too late.
Pisces with a Pisces
A Pisces pair may seem compatible on the surface, but they like to plan dreams without actually making them happen. This can lead to incompatibility where both will find the relationship stagnant.
