“A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are.” – Richard Bach
When one thinks about finding their soulmate, it brings about feelings of happiness, joy, and love – finally connecting with that one person that you are destined to spend the rest of your life with. For some, this time will come early in life, meeting this soulmate in high school. Others will be searching until far later in life. After all, they say you often have to kiss many frogs before you find your prince, right? However, when you find that ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ person, you will share a connection that exceeds anything you could have ever wished for.
The hardest part of discovering your soulmate is often knowing where to look. Have you ever stopped to ask yourself what your ideal partner would be like? Would they be outgoing or quiet? Would they be a homebody or adventurous? These traits may be a reflection of yourself, mirroring your habits and interests, or they may work to compliment you, balancing you out.
There are some personalities that are more likely to work together with one another. By looking at their individual strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes we can determine which zodiac signs are more likely to get along and develop a strong connection. Ultimately, we can predict which zodiac signs your soulmate was most likely born under! While this certainly isn’t an exact science (don’t go letting someone go just because they don’t fit your predictions), it’s an interesting insight into what the heart wants!
Your Top 3 Potential Soulmates, As Revealed by Your Zodiac Sign:
Aries: Virgo, Aquarius, Sagittarius
When Aries and Virgo meet up, it is the stereotypical partnership when opposites attract. A total perfectionist, Virgo is all about planning, organization and playing it safe while the wild and spontaneous Aries regularly doesn’t look before they leap. These two will balance one another out, creating a relationship that will stand the test of time. Should Aries partner up with an Aquarius, they will find their mental and emotional match. These two are highly compatible, connection on a deep and meaningful level allowing them to carry on a conversation for hours on end. They will bond so quickly that neither partner can imagine life apart. The connection with a Sagittarius will be one revolving around their incredible energy, feeding off one another. There is nothing that these two can’t accomplish, as they will find both motivation and support from their partner. Don’t try to keep up with them, as there is no winning that battle!
Taurus: Cancer, Capricorn, Aquarius
While Taurus may be stubborn and determined, they also possess an incredible heart which will draw Cancer to them like a month to a flame. The two both highly value the family unit, looking to do all they can to care for those that they love, which will create an incredible bond. The two have an uncanny ability to work through life’s biggest challenges, always talking through every situation before taking action. Taurus and Capricorn, meanwhile, are the very definition of a power couple, able to take on the world and succeed remarkably in the process. The combination of Capricorns ability to plan and prepare combined with the undeniable hard work and drive of Taurus will instantly click, and it will become ‘them against the world,’ only driving them closer together. This is the exact opposite of the relationship between Taurus and Aquarius, where the two will likely start off hating one another entirely. They will feel as though they are in competition with one another at every turn, however, that competition will eventually blossom into an incredibly strong relationship. The very drive that once pitted them against one another will, ultimately bring them together.
Gemini: Sagittarius, Libra, Pisces
The upbeat and incredible energy of a Gemini will bring a Sagittarius to their knees, determined to do everything in their power to sweep them off their feet. They will bring out the romantic in their Sagittarius partner, and this will allow them to connect quickly and fiercely. While Sagittarius will bring a whirlwind romance, Libra will bring an incredible friendship. This is a partnership that may not start off by making your pulse raise or your palms sweat. Instead, they will win their Gemini partner over with their personality first, forming a close bond before it becomes a little more heated under the collar. Finally, when a Gemini partners up with a Pisces, it is a case of opposites attract. While Gemini will draw all the attention anytime that they are out in public, their Pisces partner will happily step back and allow them to shine. They will patiently wait for the time when the two can be alone, sharing their sensitive nature with one another.
Cancer: Cancer, Scorpio, Taurus
Incredibly emotional, compassionate and sensitive, when a Cancer connects with another Cancer, their hearts will instantly bond, resulting in an intense relationship that can withstand anything. This isn’t to say it’s going to be easy as they learn to navigate the waves that are one another’s emotions, but their ability to understand one another will make that a little easier. The fact that they wear their heart on their sleeve is also what attracts Scorpio to their Cancer soulmates, finding someone that they believe to be worthy of their passion. The two will connect on an emotional level, creating an intense bond that can truly stand the test of time. While they will face their bumps in the road, they will do so together, hand in hand. Taurus will bring a stable grounding to their relationship with Cancer, focusing on their ability to build a family together. They understand that it won’t always be easy, but the two agree with the idea of putting family first and that common set of beliefs will tie them together hard and fast.
Leo: Leo, Sagittarius, Libra
Confident and bold, Leo can be a little egotistical, so it isn’t overly surprising that they will be attracted to the closest thing to themselves – another Leo. They are highly driven and independent and need a partner that is willing to stand on their own two feet. While two Leos will surely butt heads, but when they make up, they will be even stronger than before. When a Leo couples up with a Sagittarius, the result is going to be incredibly fun and upbeat. They will feed off one another’s energy, leaving the drama, seriousness, and struggles of the world behind them. Their relationship will be simple and uncomplicated. The partnership of a Leo and a Libra is incredibly different. Leo will immediately pick up on the vulnerable side of their Libra partner, triggering a protectiveness. They will go out of their way to keep their partner feeling safe and secure in life.
Virgo: Virgo, Aries, Capricorn
There are few, if any, people who can live up to the incredibly high standards of a Virgo, and for this reason, they will often gravitate to another Virgo. This is due to their ability to understand what is required to keep one another happy, paying attention to even the smallest of details. While each of them is incredibly hard on themselves, they will encourage and motivate one another, building each other up. This couldn’t be any more different from the partnership that forms between Virgo and Aries, in which opposites attract. While Virgo is a perfectionist planner, working hard to make sure that all the stars are aligned for true success, Aries couldn’t be bothered with this prep work, jumping into life with spontaneity. The two will balance one another out, bringing a sense of peace and harmony when they are together. The relationship between Virgo and Capricorn will take it’s time to form as the two grapples with admitting their feelings for one another, but when they finally get over their insecurities and admit that they are in love, they will create an incredibly deep and meaningful bond. This will result in a level of trust that cannot be shaken.
Libra: Leo, Gemini, Scorpio
When Libra meets their Leo partner, they find someone that provides them with the stability and power that they crave. They are that idea couple that you see in Hollywood, a perfect picture of balance, happiness, and care for one another. They work together closely, playing off one another’s strengths and helping to bring out the best in one another. If Libra, instead, connects with a Gemini partner, this is a relationship built on mutual understanding. As we mentioned above (under Gemini), this relationship will start with a solid foundation of friendship and grow from that point, making it incredibly strong. They truly want the best for one another, and everyone can see it. Finally, when Libra and Scorpio meet they will form a passionate relationship. Libra lives their life with their heart on their sleeve, and when this love is matched with the passion of a Scorpio great things will happen.
Scorpio: Cancer, Libra, Pisces
Incredibly passionate, a Scorpio needs a partner that will connect with their heart. That considered, it should come as no surprise that Scorpio would connect with a Cancer partner. Highly sensitive and compassionate, Cancer leads with their heart and that can lead to an incredibly deep relationship. Where a Cancer is weaker, their Scorpio partner will step up, giving them the strength to face life’s challenges. It is this same sensitive connection that will draw a Scorpio and a Libra together. While Libra is highly sensitive, their Scorpio partner will help teach them to manage these feelings, empowering them to establish some important boundaries to protect themselves from the world. At the same time, Libra will encourage their Scorpio power to see the world through the eyes of those around them, opening their mind to other points of view. When Scorpio and Pisces connect, they will find themselves in the role of the protector, taking control of the relationship. Meanwhile, their Pisces partner will happily hand over the wheel, content to trust their partner’s decisions. This balance will work to the benefit of both partners.
Sagittarius: Aries, Leo, Gemini
Fun-loving and upbeat, Sagittarius lives in a world of adventure and excitement. They are always on the go and have no interest in a relationship with someone that will tie them down or try to tame their wild nature. This fast-paced nature is exactly what will attract an Aries partner, one of the few signs that have the ability to keep up with this lifestyle. The two will feed off one another, always on the move and enjoy life. While Aries may try to get serious or temperamental, the fun energy of their Sagittarius partner will bring them back to the happier side of life. When Sagittarius meets a Leo, they will be drawn to their independence. Sagittarius will remind their Leo partner about the fun side of life, helping to pull them out of their more serious nature. It’s a simple and drama-free relationship. When Sagittarius meets a Gemini, they will find themselves completely smitten. This will draw out their inner romantic, eager to sweep their Gemini partner off their feet. This will feel like a relationship straight out of Hollywood.
Capricorn: Capricorn, Virgo, Taurus
There is no one else in the world that can understand a Capricorn’s need for logic and practicality the way that another Capricorn can. For this reason, they are often drawn to those that are born under the same sign, connecting on a deeply intellectual level. This practical nature will create a solid and stable relationship, dedicated to staying together for the long haul because they won’t waste their time on anything less. If a Capricorn connects with a Virgo, the relationship is one that will take its dear old sweet time to truly grow and mature. They may find themselves feeling for one another, but neither party is willing to admit what those feelings are. This will stall things until they just can’t deny their love any longer. That being said, once they do finally admit what they want, they will learn to trust one another, taking the relationship deeper into a more meaningful territory. The team of Capricorn and Taurus genuinely can’t be beaten. While Capricorn focuses their time and attention on planning and organizing, preparing for every possible scenario, Taurus will put these plans into action ultimately leading the two to succeed. Watch out, because they will dominate anything they set their sights on.
Aquarius: Aquarius, Taurus, Aries
The incredibly unique personality of an Aquarius cannot truly be compared to any other zodiac sign, which is why their best match, in many cases, will be with another Aquarius. They see the world through an incredibly different lens from all others, which can make it difficult for them to connect with anyone else. Only another Aquarius will truly understand how their mind works. When Aquarius meets a Taurus, it’s anything but love at first sight. The two are doomed to but heads, both stuck in their ways, but in time this difference of opinion will grow into a healthy competition. The two will push one another to be the greatest version of themselves, and in the process will fall for one another’s conviction and determination. While they may struggle to share their feelings, they will know how their partner feels. The connection between an Aquarius and an Aries is incredibly deep, built upon their shared views and ideologies. They see the world in a way that, while different, is similar enough that it will create an incredible match on a mental and emotional level. It’s an instant bond that can’t be broken.
Pisces: Scorpio, Gemini, Pisces
Pisces are the romantic dreamers of the world, spending much of their lives with their head in the clouds. They genuinely believe in the existence of fairy tales and want to find their happily-ever-after. If a Pisces meets a Scorpio, they will find someone whose passion lives up to their expectations of true love. Their partner will take the dominant role, stepping out in the spotlight everywhere they go and that’s completely ok for Pisces as they are more than happy taking back seat in public. However, when they are home alone, Scorpio will ensure that they feel loved and adored. The life of the party, Gemini is also going to steal the spotlight, known as the ‘life of the party.’ When Gemini and Pisces meet they will instantly connect on a deep and compassionate level, sharing in one another’s sensitivity and concern for the world around them. They balance one another out, combining the outgoing and energetic nature of the Gemini with the more guarded energy of the Pisces. Finally, when Pisces finds another Pisces, their similarities will astound you. They will form a highly emotional partnership that will certainly ride the highs and lows of life, but they will do so hand in hand every step of the way.
