Meeting someone who understands you, shares common interests, and speaks all your languages of love can feel as though the stars have aligned just for you two.
However, sometimes those stars can be the force behind those moments of frustration, miscommunication, and even disagreements.
While there are signs that are highly attractive to one another, the universe must always find a balance, meaning there are also those zodiac signs who are known to clash and clang.
Discovering that the person you’re dating is one of your incompatible zodiac signs should definitely never be a reason to end the relationship, however, it’s important to keep in mind that our partners do directly and indirectly influence our daily routines, mood, and more.
According to Medical News Today, there are various (and surprising) ways your partner can affect your health — both mentally and physically.
They explain that “Having a healthy relationship is not only rewarding, but it also significantly shapes our long-term health in a similar way to getting a good night’s sleep, eating healthfully, and not smoking.
Studies have shown, time and time again, that people who are in satisfying relationships feel happier, have fewer problems with health, and live longer.”
With that in mind, if you’re getting ready to take the plunge and finally move in together, there are some things worth knowing when you live with your incompatible zodiac sign.
The Incompatible Signs
Capricorns and Aries
Thoughtful and well-mannered Capricorns are the least compatible with impulsive, impatient Aries.
Living with an Aries can cause Capricorns to feel pretty anxious and stressed due to their controlling and responsible nature (and Aries tend to oppose any kind of authority).
Aries will also test their Capricorn’s slow and steady nature when working on home projects, cooking, and household chores.
Living with an Aries partner will require plenty of patience, communication, and compromise.
It can be tempting as a typical Capricorn to bottle up their feelings and shy away from expressing those romantic thoughts and concerns, but resentment can flourish in these particular living situations.
It’ll also require Capricorns to approach relationship problems in a more sensitive, loving way rather than calculating all the possible end results.
So with all of that in mind, being open, honest, and caring is vital for a healthy Capricorn and Aries relationship.
Aquarius and Taurus
Energetic and independent Aquarius can clash with the sharply stubborn and stuffy Taurus.
Given Aquarians’ freethinking nature, uncompromising Taurus can rub them the wrong way when it comes to discussing finances, household structure, and future plans as a couple.
A Taurus clings to the practical and the traditional, which is difficult for a very opinionated and progressive Aquarius. So, how do you sail through these troubling waters, Aquarius?
Vulnerability is a difficult, albeit essential, factor in this romantic pairing.
While Aquarians may understand the importance of communicating their thoughts and feelings, they tend to do so while keeping the other person at arm’s length (and without divulging their true emotions).
Meanwhile, Tauruses, for all their stubbornness, are extremely devoted and reliable partners, making them the perfect match to genuinely open up to. Together, Aquarius and Taurus can create the perfect safe place for one another.
Pisces and Gemini
Artistic and intuitive, Pisces can struggle understanding their Gemini partner. For Pisces, Geminis are often very overwhelming. Pisces are very keen to others’ needs, wants, and emotions — or at least they try to be.
Geminis are known to have some rather confusing inconsistencies with what they say and do.
During serious conversations, a Pisces partner might think they’re helping their Gemini with a problem until it’s clear that the Pisces’ “help” is actually more upsetting, and the Gemini partner feels as though their Pisces partner is not understanding what they mean.
This is particularly difficult (and heartbreaking) for a caring Pisces.
It’ll take a lot of determination for Pisces to make this match work, but the two can really help bring out the best in one another.
Considering Pisces’ ability to look at the whole picture with their wisdom and new perspective, Pisces partners can really help their Gemini S.O. with their communication skills while still delivering support and understanding.
Aries and Cancer
The determined, enthusiastic ram is fiercely courageous, often making them an incompatible match with the doubtful, cool-headed crab.
Cancers are caring, albeit gentle, meaning their love language tends to be non-verbal.
For Aries, it can be difficult creating that calm atmosphere a Cancer partner craves, as An Aries loves to shower their partners with love, gifts, passion, and romantic gestures.
This can quickly become overwhelming to a Cancer S.O. and make them question Aries’ genuinity.
These two incompatible signs will have to work hard to strike a balance between their introverted and extroverted personality traits.
Aries can help Cancer come out of their shell more, and Cancer can help Aries control their impulses. Just be wary of tipping the scales too much one way or the other.
Taurus and Leo
For a fiercely reliable, stable, and devoted Taurus, living with a Leo partner is never a dull moment. Both Leos and Tauruses are notorious for their stubbornness.
Additionally, Leos’ playful, often self-centered attitude can really be off-putting to practical Taurus.
Leos like to take chances, enjoying their time in the limelight, whereas Tauruses are more traditional and by the book. This can cause fights, with Taurus accusing Leo of always goofing off and Leo thinking Taurus should lighten up.
However, this pair can work well together as they tend to push each other outside of their comfort zones.
Of course it will have to be in a loving, trusting manner, but encouraging one another to take chances and try new things (with plenty of praise and admiration) can help make this partnership a healthy and happy one.
Gemini and Virgo
Gemini, quick and curious, can find their extremely practical Virgo partner to be boring. Geminis thrive on having fun, talking, and thrive on lots and lots of affection.
They are adaptable to a lot of situations but struggle with Virgo’s seeming “all work and no play” motto.
Geminis can feel as though their Virgo S.O. doesn’t feel the same for them, considering Virgos are very timid about intimacy and tend to express their love in non-verbal ways.
Geminis are very expressive with their love and will show their affection in a variety of ways (physical touch, gifts, surprises).
In order for you two to reconcile your differences, Geminis will need to create a clear, safe, and trusting environment, especially in the home.
Virgos fear vulnerability, but if a Gemini partner can prove their loyalty, honesty, and sincerity, then this pair can enjoy life to its fullest, together.
Cancer and Libras
Cancers are known for being loyal, stable, sentimental, and very generous, and this can sometimes make them incompatible with indecisive and superficial Libras.
Given their lack of patience, Cancers can find Libras’ quest for fairness, understanding of all viewpoints, and hesitation to make a decision very frustrating.
If a Cancer simply wants to vent to their Libra partner about an upsetting co-worker or incident, they can quickly become annoyed and angry at Libra’s attempt to understand all sides of the story.
A Cancer will want their Libra S.O to take their side, but Libras will always weigh all the evidence in front of them, no matter how big or small.
These incompatible signs will have to work hard at their communication skills, mainly to make sure they’re both on the same page. If you two can find the perfect formula, you’ll foster a compassionate, dedicated relationship.
Sagittarius and Pisces
Sagittarius partners are known for their ethical and rather philosophical way of thinking.
In fact, they are known to succeed within public relations careers due to their amazing ability to defuse tense situations and help people confront their issues. Sounds like a walk in the park, right?
Alas, Pisces are not so easy to understand. Considering Pisces are one of the most emotional and imaginative signs, they almost never fit within the typical mold of society.
They are the dreamers of the Zodiac, and as such, always-grounded Sagittarius can really struggle connecting with and understanding their Pisces partner.
Sagittariuses are go-getters, however, Pisces might step in and question Sagittariuses’ motives or overwhelm them with different goals, options, and results.
This can come across as doubt and lack of support to Sagittarius.
While they may have mastered the art of communication and critical thinking, Sagittariuses will need to muster up enough patience to calmly explain themselves to their Pisces partner while also taking into consideration the colorful, imaginative ideas that Pisces are good at giving.
Together, your passion and energy can work really well as a team to achieve all your aspirations.
Leo and Scorpio
Humorous and passionate Leos often butt heads with their assertive and stubborn Scorpios. Given Leo’s strong instinct to be a leader, the always questioning side of Scorpio can grate on Leo’s nerves anytime this pair tries to make plans.
Scorpios and Leos are notorious for being stubborn, with an “I’m always right” attitude. This means the two of you are prone to argue, even over the simplest of things, like what kind of paper towels to get.
Luckily, these two signs share a powerful common trait: passion. It’s Leo and Scorpio against the world! The key is to keep each of the relationship goals front and center and ignore the need to bicker about the details.
Remember, pick your battles. With enough motivation, Leo and Scorpio can achieve whatever they put their minds to.
Virgo and Sagittarius
Analytical Virgos are infamous for their critical perfectionism, which can spell trouble for their Sagittarius partner as they greatly value their freedom and really dislike any kind of lecturing or micromanaging.
To be blunt, it’s pretty obvious why these signs aren’t the most compatible.
Virgos are hardworking and practical, they love helping others but will hardly waste time on things they deem as pointless or frivolous.
Sagittariuses take risks and quickly become restless, meaning they enjoy traveling and hunting for their next big adventure. Together, the two clash, as Virgos value stability and routine and Sagittariuses shudder at the thought.
For Virgos, the difficulties with your Sagittarius partner are likely to be based around living, career, and financial decisions.
Sagittariuses are the type to take on less stable employment opportunities made available by the gig economy, setting off those red alarms inside your security-motivated heart.
Moreover, tensions can run high as Virgos feel as though their Sagittarius partner doesn’t understand them or listen, especially since Virgos value trust in their relationships and that can slip away the more Sagittariuses ignore their Virgo partner’s needs and wants.
In order to make this relationship work, both partners will have to work outside their comfort zones.
Sagittarius will need to be willing to enjoy more time on the couch, PJs on and watching reruns, while Virgos will need to quiet their controlling nature and enjoy the ride more often. It’s all about compromise in Virgo/Sagittarius relationships.
Libra and Capricorn
At first, Libra and Capricorn seem like a great match. Libra is fair-minded, and Capricorn is well-mannered, however, Capricorn’s rigid structure is too much for the airy and flexible Libra.
While a Libra partner can appreciate the passion of Capricorn, it can quickly turn into a pushiness that harmonious Libra feels uncomfortable with.
Capricorns flourish in management careers considering their drive for organization and rules, but that can translate into the home, making gentle Libras feel like an employee rather than a partner.
These two signs can especially clash when it comes to the home, so it’s worth being cautious as a Libra moving into a Capricorn’s home.
It’s likely that they’ll deny or push back any sort of changes their Libra partner wants to make.
Furthermore, Capricorns tend to live by a more minimal lifestyle and have little patience for clutter. It’d be best if you two could meet in the middle and start fresh in a completely new home where you can both contribute to the set-up from the get-go.
It also never hurts to declutter your life together, giving way for new trinkets and valuables.
Luckily, Libras and Capricorns are both like-minded when it comes to doing their best, working hard, and being fair, so if you can reconcile your differences it’s possible to make this match work.
Scorpio and Aquarius
It’s no secret that Scorpios are the fiercest sign in the Zodiac collection and as such, aloof Aquarians can get on their Scorpio partner’s nerves.
This pairing can also struggle with finding a healthy balance of love, intimacy, and honesty. It’s all or nothing for both partners, which means one mistake or flaw can be fatal to a Scorpio/Aquarius romance.
Scorpios will read too much into text messages, tone of voice, and motives when it comes to their unknowing Aquarius partner.
Scorpio partners will likely fall head over heels for their Aquarius lover, which in turn makes freedom-seeking Aquariuses head for the hills.
Making the decision to move in together really raises the stakes for an unhappy ending — but not all hope is lost.
Scorpios are very dedicated and loyal. This side of them can become invaluable to their Aquarius partner (who often runs from any kind of emotional expression).
Furthermore, Scorpios can help their airy partner finally come out of their shell and open up to better communication.
While it will take some adjustment, sharing a home could potentially strengthen your bond as you create a safe, secure place to unwind and enjoy each other’s love and passion.
