Each star sign belongs to an element

Which signs are compatible with each other?

Generally, signs within the same element are compatible, so for example, the fire signs of Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are all a good match. 

Couples from outside your element may add extra spark – Air and Fire signs are good together. They share an outgoing energy that keeps the relationship lively. Earth and Water signs are also a natural fit as they can establish security and feel naturally at home with each other.

Which signs are less compatible?

On the other hand, you might find yourself quite literally 'out of your element'. Fire with Water or Earth are at cross-purposes. Fire feels water-logged or hemmed in. Water feels Fire is too hot to handle, Earth feels Fire will scorch them.

Air drives Water crazy with their refusal to say how they feel and Air feels Water is over-sensitive. Air dislikes the rules that come with the Earth signs. Meanwhile Earth is ruffled by Air.
