Polar Opposites are almost always the best match, and as unexplained as it is, it can be bliss

Magnetic attractions are such an amazing part of life, and you never know when or where they are going to hit you. There is no real concrete explanation for why we are so strongly attracted to anyone, but there are plenty of theories.

Some scientists might believe is it some strange chemical reaction that was implanted in us at birth and comes about after puberty, so that when we run into a person who gets our liquids all into a bunch, we create "chemistry". That magical word used to explain why some couples "click" and why some don't.

There is another theory, though, that I am more partial to, and I will explain why.

It's called Astrology, and it is the unexplained mystery of the stars and planets. Some believe that Astrology is not so much a set of rules and dated fate of what will happen in our lives, but more of a guide.

We are all born under a certain "Sun Sign", as well as having many other astrological aspects of our character, such as Rising Signs and Moon Signs. Astrology can become so complex that it can take over a person's mind with all the information, which is often why so many feel unattached from the notion of learning astrology and how it can help guide our lives.

When it comes to love, astrology plays a very big part in deciding who were are naturally attracted to, and why we are attracted to them. Astrology is so intertwined with the world of love and romance, that there are even thousands of books written on that specific part of astrology alone.

In the western wheel, there is even a set rhythm of who your perfect astrological partner should be, and then it tells who your other predictable attractions will be. Now, as I list these, it is important to remember that without a persons complete Birth chart, it isn't a perfect science. In order to fully understand who you are attracted to, and why, it is best to know your Rising and Moon Sign along with your Sun Sign (the month and day you were born); otherwise you might be missing certain important pieces.

To keep this article in the realm of readable and not boring, I am going to stick with just Sun Signs and Romantic Astrology.

Your Sun Sign, can be found by looking up the Month and Day you were born.

Capricorn:  December 22nd through January 19th

Aquarius: January 20th through February 18th

Pisces: February 19th through March 20th

Aries: March 21st through April 19th

Taraus: April 20th through May 20th

Gemini: May 21st through June 21st

Cancer: June 22nd to July 22nd

Leo: July 23rd to August 22nd

Virgo: August 23rd through September 22nd

Libra: September 23rd through October 22nd

Scorpio: October 23rd to November 21st

Sagittarius: November 22nd to December 21st

Just think about what day of the month you were born, and use this list to find what your sun sign is. Within your sun sign, there is a set of characteristics and traits that you are born with, or sometimes are predetermined to develop later in life. These traits are often what decide your love path, and even if you never thought about it before, looking up the characteristics of your sun sign might help you see what patterns have continued in your love life and why.

Now, in order to understand truly, it helps to understand that your sun sign is also paired with an Element:  Earth, Air, Water, and Fire.

Earth Signs: Capricorn, Virgo & Taurus

Air Signs: Libra, Gemini, & Aquarius

Fire Signs: Leo, Aries & Sagittarius

Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio & Pisces

When you think about natural elements and how they work with other elements, it can help to understand your love match in an easy and logical way.

Fire & Air: They well with each other. Air feeds the fire, and the Fire gets bigger and takes more air. These loves can burn too high sometimes, though, and suffocate themselves. Be careful!

Fire & Earth:  Fire uses Earth as a fuel source, and out of fire's ashes, Earth can rejuvenate itself. Earth is a very strong element and can often handle whatever Fire can throw at it, but sometimes these loves can end in destruction.

Fire & Water: As much as you might think that water would put out the fire, sometimes it still creates a steam so thick that lovers get stuck in its enchanted embrace.

Water & Air:  These two go well together. Like peaches and cream. Air creates rain, which feeds water. When it gets hot, Water creates Air from h2o and the whole cycle starts over. Very good here.

Water & Earth: Although it is generally thought that water and earth go really well together, a couple utilizing this mix might want to be careful not to make too much mud.

Earth & Air: Often times the whim of the wind is too much for earth, but both Earth and Air have abundant respect for each other, so if they can stand the annoying little quirks each other has, then this elemental couple can do well together.

Now, the reason we have gone through this astrology 101, is to help you understand unexplainable magnetic attractions between two people (or three). To glue it all together, let's go over which signs are most compatible with each other

Capricorn:  Best Match/Polar Opposite: Cancer

Cancer is the polar opposite to Capricorn, and it can be as if two lost souls finally found home in each other. Cancer really needs the security and groundedness that Capricorn provides, and Capricorn loves the way they feel with Cancer who is usually a hopeless romantic. However, even though opposites make great attractions, the differences can often prove too much for either sign.

Other Compatible Matches for Capricorn:  Taurus, Virgo or another Capricorn (Other Earth Signs)

Earth signs go really well with other earth signs, because they are both grounded, and feel comfort in knowing they are each down to earth. It's a practical relationship, and it can last for decades before problems arise. The only down side is that even with the comfort and security, Capricorn can get bored with the same dry grass to eat, and might wander towards greener pastures if not kept interested.

Other Matches with Capricorn:  Aquarius, Pisces, Scorpio or Sagittarius

Aquarius is often too whimsical for Capricorn, although semi-seriousness can develop if the Aquarius is able to chill out sometimes and relax with Capricorn.  Pisces is a water sign, and its 50/50 flip when paired with Capricorn. You might get clay bricks with which to build a solid foundation, or you might just end up making mud pies for a while.  Scorpio is a very emotional sign, and it can become so emotional that Capricorn often finds the need to get away very slowly.  However, the passion that can arise between the sheets of a Scorpio moon child and a Capricornian lover can be so powerful that they can stay together for a long-term skiff of endless romance and passionate sex. But as they both realize eventually, sex isn't everything.

Least Compatible for Capricorn: Aries or Libra.

Aries is generally just too hot-headed for Capricorn, and knows how to push all those right buttons to piss Capricorn off. There can be some great times of heat-up mattress movement, but even that can turn into an argument. Be careful with a Capricorn and Aries love match; they are not pre-determined to fail, but the odds aren't in their favor. Libra isn't a very compatible match either, as the drama they feel is so drastically real, Capricorn sees as just a ploy for too much attention. They might have a little fun for a while, but over time it's no fun for either.

AquariusBest Match/Polar Opposite: Leo

Aquarius loves to run where ever the wind blows them, and Leo the lion loves the chase that Aquarius provides. These signs fill each others' lives with adventure, and they can stick together for quite sometimes. It can go on so long, in fact, that sometimes Leo gets starts getting worn out from the chase and goes to find easier prey.

Other Compatible Matches for Aquarius: Gemini or Libra

Gemini or Libra make great matches with Aquarius because they are of the same element, and so they have much in common. The intense conversations about art and literature, the creative drama and suspense. Aquarius will feel right at home with a Gemini or Libra' however the Aquarian sign is not known for sticking with the familiar for too long.

Other Matches with Aquarius: Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aries or Aquarius

Sagittarius and Capricorn are generally too grounded for Aquarius, while Aries is just too controlling. Aquarians need a non-committal kind of relationship, and they need to be able to have a quiet space somewhere to themselves. Two Aquarians can sometimes work out, but they have a tendency to get lost in their own directions and forget about each other, and then get mad at each other because they both forgot.

Least Compatible with Aquarius: Taurus, Cancer, Virgo or Scorpio

Taurus is too stubborn and controlling for Aquarius, although they do enjoy each others' companionship from time to time. Cancer is just way too emotional for Aquarius, and Aquarius isn't stable enough to keep Cancer happy. Virgo is too self-absorbed for the attention-needing Aquarius and Scorpio is too blunt.

Pisces:  Best Match/Polar Opposite: Virgo

Virgo loves the shy and quitely intellectual Pisces and they enjoy each other in bed a lot. They are fascinated by each other and can spend decades content with each other. They only stops in the path are when Virgo feels that Pisces' imagination is deception, which can happen often in a Pisces world.

Other Compatible Matches for Pisces: Cancer, Pisces or Scorpio

Pisces goes well with other signs of its own water element. Cancer and Pisces are such emotional creatures that they can enchant each other with a spell that lasts for years, while Scorpio can keep Pisces' pieces glued together. A Pisces with another Pisces is such a power-drawing relationship that it can make everyone else in the world disappear between the lovers' eyes.

Other Matches for Pisces: Capricorn, Aquarius, Aries or Taurus

Capricorn is often not as surprised by Pisces' imagination as others are, and doesn't always accuse them of lying; however, one bad mix-up and it's over. Taurus likes Pisces' fanciful thinking and they can keep each other engaged for a while, but it rarely lasts past the honeymoon phase. Aries is usually too controlling and jealous for Pisces, but Aries does love the attention from Pisces and Pisces loves the drama-induced stories Aries tells. Aquarius and Pisces can be good together, but they often view the world from very different rose-colored glasses.

Least Compatible Matches for Pisces:  Gemini, Sagittarius, Libra or Leo

Gemini can't stand Pisces' wishy-washy mindset, and Sagittarius just thinks Pisces is a waste of time.  Although Pisces would politely give them both a try, at least in bed. Libra's antics usually prove too much for Pisces, and Libra has a tendency to be untrusting, something a Pisces can't stand. Leo is just too selfish for Pisces, as Piscian's usually the Polyandrous sort of sign.

Aries:  Best Match/Polar Opposite: Libra

Libra and Aries both enjoy an everlasting amount of attention, and have abundant amounts of it to give as well. They enjoy the dramatic and action- packed games each other play, and can stick together for a long time as long as they both play fair.  However, a few steps away from the line and the relationship can go as quickly as it came.

Compatible Matches for Aries:  Leo, Sagittarius or Aries

Fire and Fire is usually a great match, who better to stand up to the heat than another Fire sign? Leo is great with Aries and they can have a passionate, exciting relationship that rides off into the sunset. However, Leo must be careful not to overshine Aries, or their feelings might be hurt so deeply they can't stay. Aries are very prideful creatures. Sagittarius generally loves Aries' spontaneous sense of business and adventure, and Aries with Aries is a flame so big you could see it from three planets away.

Other Compatible Matches for Aries:  Taurus. Gemini, Pisces or Aquarius

Aries does well with a Taurus, who is thick-headed enough to know how to handle Aries. Gemini, Pisces and Aquarius are okay with Aries, as long as they can understand the Arian need for lots of committed attention. Aries is an argumentative sign, and that is something many signs find hard to compete with.

Least Compatible Matches for Aries:  Cancer, Capricorn, Virgo or Scorpio

Cancer is too emotional for Aries, and Aries is not stable enough to support Cancer's rollercoaster-ride of emotions. Capricorn and Aries are too competitive by nature to really love each other deeply. Virgo and Aries are both fairly vain signs, and too self-absorbed to give each other the needed attention they seek. Scorpio and Virgo are also not likely to last too long, for more than enough reasons.

Taurus:  Best Match/Polar Opposite: Scorpio

Taurus desires the excitement and passion that Scorpio provides, and Scorpio loves the lavished attention from Taurus. They can create their own fireworks under a blanket of endless stars and never worry about a thing.

Compatible Matches for Taurus:  Capricorn or Virgo

Taurus is an earth sign, and in being so, they very much enjoy the companionship of Capricorn or Virgo. Capricorn understands Taurus and knows how to stay on their good side, while Virgo is sensible and keeps Taurus practical and sweet. However, both Virgo and Capricorn can get too frustrated with Taurian material-spending habits.

Other Compatible Matches for Taurus: Gemini, Pisces, Cancer or Aries

Gemini likes shiny things and great conversations, something Taurus is good at providing. However, Gemini is suspicious as the Taurian bull has a way of wandering from time to time. Pisces and Cancer both enjoy being lavished in attention from Taurus, but Taurus generally finds them both too emotional. Aries and Taurus can be a bright and extremely fun and adventurous relationship, but they often get into heated arguments, and that gets tiring for both after a while.

Least Compatible Matches for Taurus:  Aquarius, Leo, Sagittarius, Taurus or Libra

Taurus can't stand chasing Aquarius everywhere, and Leo is too pushy.  One Taurus and another Taurus does not happen often, as it is often a game of possession which nether can stand. Taurus is often way too possessive for Libra to be able to stick around.

Gemini:  Best Match/Polar Opposite: Sagittarius

Gemini and Sagittarius both love spontaneous action, as long as it's somewhat organized. They see each other's world in different but equally undefinable ways, and this can make them the best match for each other.

Compatible Matches for Gemini: Libra, Gemini or Aquarius

Libra is Balance and Gemini is the Twins, they both are like a coin with two different faces, which oddly enough, creates a whole for each half between Libra and Gemini. Gemini and Gemini is an okay match, but they can both hold a grudge for a very long time, and it only takes one good fight to get them in permanent opposite corners. Yet they can talk to each other for weeks without a care. Aquarius likes Gemini's witty sense of humor, and Gemini enjoys the artistic adventure that Aquarius can provide.

Other Matches for Gemini: Scorpio, Leo or Taurus

Gemini is generally one of the peace-keeping signs of the Zodiac, and in being so, they can usually get along with most other signs. Yet there are some signs to be aware of--romantically speaking, of course. Scorpio is usually too intense for Gemini, but the passion can continue for a long time if both signs desire it. Leo is just too self-pioneering, but if Leo can learn to share with Gemini, than they can have a good long go. Gemini has some great times with Taurus, but Taurians have a way of walking on toes without care, and Gemini isn't a very forgiving sign. This makes it hard for a Taurus/Gemini relationship to work out long-term. They make great mattress matches though!

Least compatible for Gemini: Pisces, Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn or Aries

Pisces is too full of nonsense, which Gemini can't stand. Cancer is just too pathetic, and Virgo is too demanding and vain. Capricorn would be okay, if Capricorn wasn't so stubborn and didn't spend all their free time working. Aries is too self-centered and egotistical to really see it through with Gemini, and Gemini has better things to do than wait for Aries to grow up.

Cancer: Best Match/Polar Opposite: Capricorn

Soul mates. Capricorn and Cancer can find a place in each other like no other. They hear the call each others' soul puts out, and they provide what the other can't. For Cancer, a Capricorn means warmth, security and good cooking. To Capricorn, Cancer is a source of emotional security, humor and good sex. They are perfect match.

Compatible Matches for Cancer: Scorpio or Pisces

Cancer is a water sign, and finds other water signs compatible. Scorpio is immensely passionate, as is Pisces, and it can be like a storybook romance with Cancer.

Other Matches with Cancer:  Taurus, Virgo, Cancer or Leo

Cancer and Taurus are a good match because Taurus gives Cancer the attention and thrill they need. However, Taurus has a way of wandering between pastures and that can kill it for Cancer. Virgo can be fun for a while, but they like more attention then they give; and Cancer needs a lot of reassurance. Cancer and Cancer can work out sometimes, but they tend to get jealous of each others' flirtatious ways. Leo and Cancer can be a happening thing, as they are both connoisseurs  of taste, but it can die out once Cancer finds out Leo can't really cook.

Least Compatible for Cancer:  Aries, Libra, Sagittarius, Gemini, Aquarius

Aries and Libra are just too dramatic and hypertensive for Cancer, who likes to have a partner who can quietly comfort them from time to time. Sagittarius isn't a great match because they can find Cancer too clingy. Gemini feels Cancer is too emotional, and Aquarius doesn't give Cancer the commitment they need. However, Cancer, Gemini and Aquarius do have a good time talking about artsy things.

Leo: Best Match/Polar Opposite: Aquarius

Leo and Aquarius are both very proud and purposeful in the things they do, which can create immense respect in each others' eyes. They both enjoy the largest territory possible, which means they will thrive together if they both like to travel and explore together.

Compatible Matches for Leo: Sagittarius or Aries

Leo is a fire sign, and gets along well with other fire signs. Aries and Sagittarius both have a way of stoking Leo's ferocious flames just the right way. Just as long as the fire doesn't consume the rest of the world, they can be together forever.

Other Matches for Leo: Taurus, Virgo, Cancer or Gemini

Leo has a fun time wrestling with Taurus and they both love each others' thrilling lives, although after a while Taurus may get lazy, which Leo finds unattractive. Virgo is a great communicator and so is Leo, and they can go far with each other if they don't fight too much. Cancer and Leo can happen--or a while. A Gemini and Leo matchup can work for a little bit, but Gemini's feelings often get hurt somewhere accidentally by Leo and neither can seem to get over it.

Least Compatible for Leo: Libra, Scorpio, Leo, Pisces or Capricorn

Leo is a very strong-willed sign, and so it makes compatibility a bit more limited than some other signs. Libra is too shady, Scorpio is too moody; Leo's are too untrusting to trust each other, Pisces is too emotional, and Capricorn is too suspicious of Leo.

Virgo: Best Match/Polar Opposite: Pisces

Virgo and Pisces are very resourceful lovers and find many new ways to keep each other interested. The only problem? Virgo is vain, and if they can't remember to appreciate Pisces, they relationship will not stick around. But for the attention-giving Virgo, Pisces can become a love like no other, with loyalty beyond space and time.

Compatible Matches with Virgo: Capricorn or Taurus

Capricorn and Taurus go well with Virgo because they are Earth signs, and have much in common with Virgo. Just remember, too much in common can ruin the chemistry sometimes. If they can keep each other interested, two earth signs can stay together for decades.

Other Matches with Virgo: Virgo, Cancer, Leo or Scorpio

Virgo and Virgo is okay, as long as they put their mirrors next to each other and remember to peek over from time to time. Cancer and Virgo enjoy each others' quiet company, but they tend to make too much mud in each others' lives. Leo and Scorpio are both fun and exciting, but generally too frivolous for Virgo.

Least Compatible for Virgo: Libra, Sagittarius, Gemini, Aquarius, Aries

Virgo can stand Libra's drama and indignant attitude, Sagittarius is too stubborn and ever-changing, Gemini is too much of a bookworm, Aquarius too far "gone with the wind", and Aries is too ill tempered. Virgo is a picky breed, but that not a bad thing either.

Libra: Best Match/Polar Opposite: Aries

Libra and Aries are both very dramatic, and feel as if they are starring in their own real life soap opera (just don't tell them it's not real). They both get untwined in their dramas and have such a great time in the whirlwind that the cycle can renew itself forever. They love each other passionately, and as long as they can stay loyal to each other, they can stay together forever.

Compatible Matches for Libra:  Aquarius or Gemini

Libra is the sign of the goddess Venus or Aphrodite, and therefore is the sign of Love. With Gemini or Aquarius, the passion can be so abundant that no force could ever break it down.

Other Matches for Libra:  Scorpio, Cancer, Leo or Sagittarius

Libra and Scorpio have G-R-E-A-T sex together, and neither will realize the difference between lust and love for a long time if they desire it. When they do discover it, it will be a dramatic break. Cancer and Libra can be the most romantic relationship, as long as Libra can balance out their logic and emotions. Libra needs quiet passionate moments with their lover at times, and if Leo can find a way to give that to Libra, they can stick together for a very long time. Sagittarius makes a good match for Libra because they both love adventure and trying new things.

Least Compatible for Libra:  Taurus, Capricorn, Virgo, Pisces or Libra

Taurus thinks Libra whines too much, Capricorn can't stand the drama, Virgo doesn't like loud noises, and Pisces is just too indecisive, even though they are a great sexual match for Libra. A Libra with a Libra is an interesting phenomenon to experience. They will either talk each others' ears off into eternity, or fall in love forever.  Is there a difference?

Scorpio:  Best Match/Polar Opposite: Taurus

Taurus and Scorpio both put out an abundant amount of energy, and they both absorb a lot of energy. Fueling the passion and love inside each other, and creating a life long storybook romance. Just as long as Taurus can learn to be happy with Scorpio's moody behavior.

Compatible Matches for Scorpio: Cancer, Pisces or Scorpio

Scorpio and Cancer are both hopeless romantics, and can create a bond between each other that is both physically and emotionally satisfying. Pisces can create the same atmosphere, but with a little more imagination. Scorpio and Scorpio are strong relationship matches because they are created from the same mold and find comfort in their commonalities.

Other Matches for Scorpio: Capricorn, Sagittarius, Virgo or Libra

If Scorpios can dig deep inside themselves to discover what true commitment and love is, then Capricorn can provide for them the most dedicated love. Sagittarius and Scorpio may have to work at it, but they can create a traditional love, with a white picket fence and all, if they try hard. Virgo has to become more adventurous for Scorpio to stay engaged in them and Scorpio has to remember to play fair. Libra and Scorpio need a lot of hot and steamy sexual encounters in order to work out, but hey!  Who's complaining there?

Least Compatible for Scorpio:  Leo, Aquarius, Aries or Gemini

Leo is too possessive, Aquarius is too flighty, Aries is too dominating, and Gemini is too boring for Scorpio.

Sagittarius: Best Match/Polar Opposite: Gemini

Gemini and Sagi are both easygoing and complementary to each other. They are opposites when it comes to their goals, but they both find the differences fascinating, and it keeps them attracted to each other. If they can remember to keep some amount of space between each other, they can embrace each other eternally.

Compatible Matches for Sagittarius: Aries, Leo or Sagittarius

Sagi is a Fire sign, and going well with other Fire signs is a given. Aries or Leo can both combine with Sagi to make the world's brightest flame, so long as they don't burn up everything else in sight, or get too jealous of one another.

Other Matches for Sagittarius: Capricorn, Libra, Aquarius or Scorpio

Capricorn is a great listener as is Sagittarius, and they can keep each other happy for a long time. However, Capricorn can be a bit too prudy for Sagittarius, and sometimes to lazy. Libra is fun for a while, but once the drama starts in Sagittarius is gone faster than a banana split. Aquarius and Scorpio both make passionate matches with Sagi, and they are adventurous in bed, but after a while Sagittarius will want something new.

Least Compatible for Sagittarius: Pisces, Virgo, Taurus or Cancer

Sagi is not a picky type at all, but there are still some signs that would be best to avoid if possible. Pisces prefers to look at themselves in the mirror, than to look at Sagittarius, and although Sagi will give it their120%, a dead end road just doesn't go very far. Sagi likes an occasional romp through a moonlit meadow in their birthday suit, and Virgo is too busy reading to join in, which Sagi finds boring. Sagi and Taurus are both stubborn, and sometimes they are so thick-headed they believe they are in love, but once the stubbornness wears off, the love usually does too. Cancer is such a homebody that they don't tend to like staying with a Sagi, and Sagittarius loves the romance but they want more real life adventure, which Cancer can't really provide.

This list may be long, but it should give you some insight into the weird, wonderful world that is astrology. When it comes to sexual, physical or emotional magnetism, sometimes we can only find the answers in the stars.

If you find yourself inexplicably attracted to someone, you might take some time to look into the astrology of the situation and keep an eye on your horoscope. You never know, you might be made for each other.
