In the zodiac, certain signs relate to others. They can share the same element or create harmonious angles together. They can share characteristics, philosophies, or world views. Astrological compatibility comes from comparing the signs to one another and applying those insights to psychology.Astrology enthusiasts know that compatibility is more nuanced than one sign versus another, and it doesn’t take a skeptic to understand that most of the time, people elect who they want to spend time with. It’s up to individuals to pursue their destiny! Although certain zodiac signs do—or don’t!—share things in common, relationships play out in their own special way. Compatibility comes down to maturity, communication, and chemistry.
While astrology isn’t the end-all perspective on these themes, it is still a very useful tool to learn more about yourself and others, and to open the door to conversations. Relationships take on many different forms, and no matter what level of intimacy you share with someone, astrology can show potential for how to navigate conflicts or enjoy others’ company to the fullest.These are the VICE astrology team’s takes on compatibility: on you and your partner’s signs, and the archetypes of those unions. (These reports can be applied to platonic, romantic, and professional relationships, too.)
