TL;DRWhen it comes to love compatibility, birth chart information can help you know who you are most likely to be a good mate with. Of course, soulmate compatibility is about more than when we were born and where the planets and stars were, but couples astrology can still open your eyes to some real possibilities. Join us at Mysticsense today as we explore birth chart love compatibility and some of the best matches in both Chinese astrology and Western astrology.

While we don’t have a love compatibility calculator to share, love signs natal chart compatibility is something you can look into when you are learning about what people you are a good love match with. We may as well call it “love match astrology” or even “partner astrology”. Certainly, just what the planets and stars were doing when you were born doesn’t decide who you choose to spend your life with but knowing what signs you are most likely to be most compatible with will help you know what to look for. Couple compatibility test astrology information is not something we will share, but you can join us to learn some of what Western astrology and Chinese astrology has to say about chances couples have when it comes to compatibility.

Before we explore compatibility astrology, enjoy some quotes about love and destiny:

“Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone-we find it with one another.” -Thomas Merton

“You don’t find love. It finds you. It’s got a little bit to do with destiny, fate, and what’s written in the stars.” Anais Nin

“ One love, one heart, one destiny. “ Bob Marley

“ Love is a force of destiny whose power reaches from heaven to hell.” C.G. Jung

Chinese Astrology

The Best Astrology Love Matches

The Chinese Zodiac is based on a system of years, and the signs are represented by animals. The animals of the Chinese zodiac move in revolutions of twelve years. Thus, Year of the Rabbit people are born in the years of 1963, 1975, 1987, and 1999, all twelve years apart from one another. The years and the animals representing those years will influence your personality, lifepath, and fortune in general. Some people base what career path to pursue, what year to have a baby, and who to marry on their Chinese zodiac sign.

Water and Fire Element Compatibility in Chinese Astrology

In the Chinese zodiac, there are five elements, and those are metal, wood, water, fire, and earth. Each element has personality characteristics. Metal signs Roosters and Monkeys are said to be hard workers who are persistent and determined and make good managers. Wood signs Rabbits and Tigers are characterized as idealistic and outstanding planners. Water sign Pigs and Rats are perfectionists who are good coordinators, and they are sympathetic. Fire sign Horses and Snakes are said to be brave, passionate, and great researchers. The earth signs are the Sheep, Oxen, Dragons, and Dogs and they are great leaders known for their tolerance, kindness, and honesty.

To understand compatibility among these signs, some state that the elements move in two cycles, or the controlling cycle, and the generating cycle. The generating cycle is nurturing. For example, water makes the wood grow, and the wood makes the fire burn. Earth holds metal, water runs off of metal, and fire makes things into earth. From this we learn that Pigs and Rats help Rabbits and Tigers thrive in relationships.

On the other hand, the controlling cycle makes destructive and divisive things happen for relationships. Water extinguishes fire and fire melts metal. Earth soaks up the water, wood breaks down the earth, and metal cuts down wood. Thus, water signs Rats and Pigs and fire sign Horses and Snakes are not so great together. Passionate, ambitious Snakes may not always give away their true thoughts or feelings, and Pigs are open and honest and may mistake secrecy from Snakes as dishonesty. Talk about differences that can douse out the fire of passion!

Year of the Rooster and Horse Compatibility

Year of the Horse compatibility with Roosters is not perfect. Remembering that a Rooster is a metal animal, and a Horse is a fire animal- fire melts metal! Roosters are very attentive, and the Horse may feel smothered or nagged, but their Rooster just wants to make sure their Horse is well fed and healthy. The Horse has a more laid-back approach to things and the Rooster can feel the Horse is unorganized. A better match for a Horse would be somebody born in the Year of the Dog. Dogs are part of a compatibility triangle with Horses and Tigers. All three signs have a strong need for justice and are high energy. They love time with friends and have the get up and go to make things happen!

Water Dog and Metal Horse Compatibility

Another element comes into play in the Chinese Zodiac. Each sign may have their own element, but they have a secondary element depending on WHICH year they are born. For example, somebody who is born in the Year of the Rabbit might be a wood sign, so Rabbits born in 1975 are wood signs, but those born in 1963 are also water signs. So, the 1963 Rabbit has both the influence of wood and water. A Dog is an earth sign, but Dogs born in 1982 are water dogs. Since Dogs and Horses in general are part of that triangle of compatibility, even though another element might be brought in, they can work things out. Water makes these Dogs responsible and have a good sense of foresight, but they have to be careful not to be self-centered with their Horse! Remember also that water runs off of metal, which is considered nurturing.

Tiger Horse Compatibility

The Tiger in Chinese astrology is a wood sign, and the Horse is a fire sign. Of the Chinese astrology matches, again these form a compatibility triangle and it is a great pairing. Since Horses, Dogs, and Tigers form the compatibility triangle, the thing burning will be passion. Both signs love to laugh and give one another plenty of freedom. The Horse works hard at the family finances, and the Tiger is a confident, courageous, natural born leader. Friction can occur when then the Tiger wants more time to themselves, and their Horse feels ignored. Still, the Horse and Tiger are a great combination!

Western Astrology

The Best Astrology Love Matches

Western astrology, as in Greco Roman astrology moves in sets of twelve, but instead of being divided into years, it is divided into twelve months, with one sign representing each month. Like the Chinese zodiac, people who follow this Western zodiac believe there are more or less compatible signs and listed below are some of the best Western zodiac matches.

Venus Love Compatibility

The Best Astrology Love Matches

Beyond just what your sun sign is, there are other signs in your birth chart that help to decide who you are most compatible with. Your Venus sign is revealed once you enter date of birth, time of birth, and birthplace into an online birth chart calculator like this one: Free Astrology Birth Chart Report (cafeastrology.com)

For example, the author’s Venus sign is Leo. That doesn’t just mean she sometimes has a loud “roar” and works to maintain a great “mane of hair”. Our Venus sign dictates how we operate romantically, how we experience pleasure, and how we relate to other people. Somebody with Venus in Leo will be fully aware of their feelings and want somebody who will dote on them, showering them with affection and attention. They may go overboard and be “extra” about their feelings about things and may be guilty of fussing over the people they love so much it annoys them.

One way to discern compatibility based on the Venus sign is to see if your Venus sign is conjunct, or the same sign, or trine, in the same element as their sun sign. For example, somebody with a Venus in Libra would do well with somebody who has a sun in Libra or somebody whose sun sign is one of the other air signs Aquarius, or Gemini based on this.

Leo and Libra Love Sign Compatibility

The Best Astrology Love Matches

Speaking of Leos, a top match for them are Libras. Both Leo and Librans love material comforts and make great shopping partners. Librans can soothe Leo’s anger and upset, being the harmonizers they are, and Leos appreciate the attention and time Librans devote to them. It’s not all one sided, though, because Librans can be extremely sensitive, and their Leos seem to know just what to say to make them feel better. Both very energetic, Leos and Libras tend to team up on projects and find common interests to share. They can be perfect soulmates and life partners.

Cancer and Taurus Soulmate Astrology Compatibility

The Best Astrology Love Matches

Both Cancers and Taureans need to feel safe and secure in relationships and they both also devote a lot of time to the people they love, making their relationships the center of their lives. Both signs love the comforts of hearth and home and spend a lot of time building cozy houses for themselves they would be content to rarely, if ever leave. Both signs know how to save for a rainy day, and are very resourceful about finances, investing, and planning for the future in general. They are both devoted to family and build relationships with friends and lovers slowly, so that their relationships stand the test of time. This is a match made in the stars that can be the main relationship for both of them.

Scorpio and Pisces Compatible Love

The Best Astrology Love Matches

Both being water signs, Pisces and Scorpio people understand one another’s strong, sensitive emotions, and harmonize well. Scorpios are powerfully dynamic people in their careers, but in their personal life, need somebody who they can let their guard down around and who they can trust with their vulnerabilities. Pisces people will make being devoted, loyal, and loving to their friends, family, and lovers a top priority. Both Pisces and Scorpios are in touch with their psychic gifts and may form a psychic connection very early on in their relationship. Sexually, there is a lot of attraction between these signs, who value sexual intimacy as much as they value trust in their relationships. They can live happily ever after together.

Aries and Sagittarius Love Signs Compatibility

The Best Astrology Love Matches

Fire signs Aries and Sagittarians are both energetic people who love variety and exploring their worlds. They make perfect traveling companions and are both spontaneous and laid back enough to enjoy spur of the moment trips. Sagittarians may seek more independence than their Aries lovers do, but a good bond will mean the Aries tells their Sagittarian lover to take plenty of pictures and tell them about their trip when they return to them. Both signs absolutely love sex and are open to experimenting and changing how they make love for plenty of excitement and fun. While some signs love to cry and cuddle after sex, these two lovers like to have fun making love, and even if the relationship is a serious one, they will take a lighthearted approach to sex. This could be the relationship both signs stick with for the rest of their days once they meet and fall in love with one another.

If you want to know all about your love compatibility with other people, exploring both the Chinese and Western zodiac and your own personal signs in both zodiacs will give plenty of clarification. Just remember that regardless of what the zodiacs say, you are in charge of who you choose to partner with. Knowing what your signs are can help show you what your personality, preferences, and life in general will be like, and it can show you who you are most likely to be drawn to for friendships, and who you are likely to be attracted to for love and romance.
