Is it meant to be? Read on to find out if your romantic stars align, based on your zodiac sign. And explore our birthstone jewelry or gemstone engagement rings if you’re looking for astrologically-informed pieces.
Similar to psychology and personality tests, astrology is one of those irresistible puzzle pieces in the never-ending quest to figure out who we are and what people and circumstances help us to thrive. Just as different styles of engagement ring may be best suited to your aesthetic, your zodiac sign (or your sun sign) can serve as a guide to partners that are most closely in sync with your personality type. And who doesn’t want a clue about their love life from the Universe? Yes, please!
Curious if your relationship is destined for forever? Does your future marriage land on the right side of the sun? Will your over-the-moon feelings last? We’ve combed through the constellations to find some of the most compatible love matches.
Of course, take this all with a grain of stardust. If nothing else, have some harmless fun seeing how astrology’s prophecies ring true (or not true) for you!
How the Zodiac Signs Influence Marriage Compatibility
(January 19-February 18)
The epitome of free-spirited, you’re an idealist and a nomad at heart. Think Oprah Winfrey and Bob Marley. This can make finding “the one” difficult. For someone who will truly understand you, a fellow unfettered Aquarius may be your best fit.
Another air sign who will really relate to your sense of individuality is Gemini. If you’re already committed to a Gemini, you’ve already experienced an unrivaled emotional connection. For a fire sign who loves the kind of adventure that comes with independence, choose a Sagittarius. There is nothing like knowing you’ve chosen and are chosen by someone who greatly values their independence. In both these cases, together is way better than apart.
Best matches for marriage: Aquarius, Gemini, Sagittarius.
(February 18-March 20)
Ah—the dreamer, healer, and nurturer. A water sign, you’ve been known to let your imagination swim away from you, so if you’re looking for a bit more grounded balance, seek out a sign like Cancer. They’re another natural nurturer, but are best known for their ability to plant roots, water them, and watch them flourish.
For an unapologetic romance that rivals the greatest love stories, seek another water sign like Scorpio who will make it their life’s mission to learn everything there is to know about you. Need an IRL example to make you a believer? Look no further for evidence than Eva Mendes (Pisces) and Ryan Gosling (Scorpio). Swoon.
Best matches for marriage: Cancer, Scorpio.
(March 20-April 19)
A fire sign symbolized by the ram, you’re a true trailblazer. Like the Lady Gagas among us, you could use someone to help you channel that boundless energy into something wonderful.
Fellow fire starter Leo will encourage you to achieve those dreams, from career to family. They’ll even entertain a less rooted existence and share your wild passion for a life well-traveled. Watch out, world.
Best matches for marriage: Leo.
(April 19-May 20)
Patient and dedicated Taurus, you bring a sense of ease to those around you, but could also use someone who can return the favor, especially in times of stress. Cue Virgo’s endless passion for inspiring well-being in everyone around them. Together, you two will make a true symbol of peace.
If your life goal lands on the more domesticated, homebody side of things, a Cancer won’t skip a beat dreaming up that forever home. For someone who will chase the top of the career ladder alongside you, entreat a Capricorn. You’ll cultivate an unbreakable bond built on respect and admiration.
Best matches for marriage: Virgo, Cancer, Capricorn.
(May 20-June 20)
Is there anyone who doesn’t fall in love with you, vibrant Gemini, sign-sharer with Prince?
You love a game of quick wit, so enlist the adoration of a Leo, the ultimate passionate partner, and you’ll never need your phone to save you from boredom again. For an electric, highly physical and psychological connection, your match is open-minded, airy Aquarius.
For a more intellectual and spiritual bond, a Libra will give you nothing short of a harmonious partnership that is equal parts friendship and romance. With them, your marriage will be a blissful, never-ending journey of discovery.
Best matches for marriage: Leo, Aquarius, Libra.
(June 20-July 22)
Dear nurturing Cancer, what we love most about you is your ability to connect all things and your seemingly endless patience.
Snatch up a Taurus for someone who understands the meaning of dedication and hard work just as well as you do. For the kind of partnership defined by the phrase “law of attraction,” a Pisces will make your heart swoon and will be nothing short of determined to keep you around.
To plant deep roots the way you like to, a Scorpio will be a wonderful partner in the garden of life. You won’t find a more devoted or morally aligned match. Just be cautious of the intensity of this relationship, or throw that caution to the wind.
Best matches for marriage: Taurus, Pisces, Scorpio.
(July 22-August 22)
Lovely, lion-like Leo—the sign of bold expression—wears each and every emotion on both sleeves. Think Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, and Coco Chanel.
For an equally passionate match, you’ll maintain a fire-worthy love story with Sagittarius, a fellow dreamer. You’ll be the couple that everyone points to as the gold-standard for love.
If you’re looking for a love-match that’s most apt to share the spotlight with you, hitch yourself to Gemini, a professional charmer. If you know exactly what you want for your life and the goals you hope to achieve, you can’t go wrong with an Aries, a sign often characterized as unstoppable, devoted, and encouraging.
Best matches for marriage: Sagittarius, Gemini, Aries.
Engagement rings for Leo: Peridot rings, ruby engagement rings
(August 22-September 22)
While you’re deeply attached to your closest friends, you also have a fiercely independent streak and have been practicing self-care way before it was a trend. For a love story that will stand the test of time, and remind you that you actually can trust someone, hang onto your fellow earth sign Taurus. You both share many of the same life philosophies and know how to go with the flow, even if that flow gets choppy.
If you’re looking for someone who will also make a great business partner, sign the dotted line with a Capricorn, who is ruled by The Mountain Goat, a symbol of drive and persistence.
Best matches for marriage: Taurus, Capricorn.
(September 22-October 23)
Sweet Libra, the most hopeless of the romantics and poet at heart, your inner life thrives when you feel eternally wooed. But the opposite is also true: a lack of or the wrong kind of love leaves you feeling lonelier and more depleted than ever. For a clear picture of what we mean, google famous Libras F. Scott Fitzgerald and e.e. cummings.
There is really no greater match for you than a Gemini, who will remind you how special you are outside of your relationship. A kindred air sign, Gemini is the key to feeling forever appreciated, adored, understood, and that ever-elusive state: balanced.
Best matches for marriage: Gemini.
Engagement rings for Libra: Peridot rings, tourmaline rings
(October 23-November 21)
Oh, Scorpio. You always get a bad rap for being intense as if it’s a negative thing, but that’s what allows you to focus on and dig deep into the things that matter most to you. Fellow Scorpios include Sylvia Plath and Ryan Gosling, so. Yeah. A little intense, but incredibly magical.
As a water sign, you can be quite reserved at first, and a fervent Earth sign like Capricorn can help you open up and nurture you, while also understanding what makes you tick. Another incredibly nurturing sign like Cancer makes another great, super supportive match, though two water signs may be a partnership that some find too intense. For a little better balance, a Scorpio-Pisces pairing will provide that incredible, unspoken, finish-each-other's-sentence kind of chemistry and unabashed romance.
Best matches for marriage: Capricorn, Cancer, Pisces.
(November 21-December 21)
An adventurer and wittiest of entertainers, you need someone who won’t take offense to your naturally flirtatious and comedic demeanor. The stars point to bright Leo as a compatible fire sign that will set your love aflame (in a good way, of course). But be warned: you may find yourselves competing for the limelight from time to time.
For a match with a little less chance for rivalry, water sign Aquarius can cool things down to a more balanced, kindred spirit-esque temperature. They’ll encourage your wanderlust while also giving a much-needed dose of logic when necessary. Adventure is out there, but an Aquarius will make you want to come back home.
Best matches for marriage: Leo, Aquarius.
Engagement rings for Sagittarius: Topaz engagement rings, turquoise rings
(December 21-January 19)
Loyal Capricorn—ever-prophetic, David Bowie-esque master able to see things through to the finish line — find yourself a supportive Scorpio or a driven Virgo, who will stand by your side as you work hard to achieve your long-term goals.
For a soulmate status story, the constellations say shoot for a romantic and dedicated Taurus. The combination of both your dedication and Taurus’ groundedness will be a boon to your love’s longevity.
Best matches for marriage: Scorpio, Virgo, Taurus.

Best Zodiac Sign Matches
Wondering which zodiac signs go well together? Some of the best star sign compatibility matches are when fire signs are matched with air signs and when earth signs are matched with water signs. Additionally, signs from the same element will likely be well matched for marriage compatibility.
Working Past Unfavorable Star Sign Compatibility
Zodiac sign compatibility is not a set-in-stone rule for how your relationship will pan out. Couples with mismatched star signs can still have long, healthy marriages. If you fear that your partner’s zodiac sign is not a perfect match, don't fret! Solid communication of personality differences can help bridge any gaps.
