For those familiar with astrology, this one may seem a little far-fetched: Taurus is a famously private, stubborn, protective sign and Libra is the flirty love interest in every throw-away rom-com.Sounds like blending these together would make a the perfect jealousy smoothie, right? Ultimately, the most important thing in a Taurus’ life is consistency; the most important thing in a Libra’s life is balance.When my boyfriend and I first started dating, we spent one night eating pizza and asking questions about each other’s families.At one point, he mentioned his brother’s upcoming wedding would fall on the same weekend as his birthday, in late October.I’m not saying you should use astrology as your sole relationship barometer, but if you’re a Leo and fall in love with a Scorpio, just don’t say I didn’t warn you. Think Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, but exclusively that one time they coordinated those all-denim red carpet looks: unexpected, iconic and the type of thing that people model Halloween costumes after.Aries, the ram, is famous for its passion and ambition.
There are multiple gauges by which to judge astrological compatibility.I nearly choked on a piece of pepperoni.“Are you a Scorpio? He continued chewing, blissfully unaware of the existential crisis I was currently enduring, and shook his head.“Nah, I’m a Libra.”I cannot describe the relief that washed over me in that moment.As a Leo — and an astrology enthusiast — I have nothing against Scorpios, but I have oft been warned (and warned others) against the endurance of a lion/scorpion pairing.As a Leo, some might say I should exclusively date fellow fire signs (Aries and Sagittarius).
Another measure of compatibility falls upon the “ruling planet” of each sign and whether your sign shares its planet with another (Leo is the only sign ruled by the sun, so no worries there).
One dominant theory would say to go by your sign’s element.
